Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Waterfoot House, Arorangi, Rarotonga
On the beach frontage facing the sunset over a tropical lagoon, Waterfoot House is a unique property in Rarotonga.  It is a standalone private residence, purpose-built as the owners’ tropical residence when they are on the island, and features nine distinct, connected pavilions, each one serving a different function and built with the warm tropical weather in mind.  

The Main Pavilion houses a spacious living room connected by a covered walkway to the fully equipped kitchen.  The Day Spa is next to the kitchen. The pavilions housing the bedroom suites are located either side of the main pavilion. The Master Suite and the King Suite face the lagoon, while the 2 smaller Suites face the opposite direction with an outlook over the gardens.

The property boasts both indoor and outdoor living, offering several individual spaces inside and out to relax and dine. At one end of the 20-metre pool there is an outdoor kitchen pavilion equipped with a barbeque, and on the opposite end of the pool, an open dining and lounging pavilion. The beach sand is only steps away from the front of the pool.

Waterfoot House offers the unique feature of a live-in caretaker couple, one of whom is a qualified Spa Therapist and spa therapies are available at a reasonable charge by appointment.  The caretaker couple also organise the daily housekeeping of the suites (linen change every 3 days) as well as organising the daily breakfast included in the tariff.  At additional cost, other meals can be arranged on request and an outside chef can be brought in for special occasions. The caretaker couple are available to advise on local attractions and make recommendations on restaurants etc. It is possible to have the kitchen pre-stocked with groceries and beverages of your choice and guests are only charged actual costs for this service (there is no service charge added).

The House is superbly suited for an island beach break, the location is unsurpassed and the facilities and services offered are top-notch.  This place is unbeatable for up to 3 couples sharing a holiday and absolutely ideal for 2 families with adult children to share.

What Waterfoot House Say About Themselves

Waterfoot House. Located on the sunset side of Rarotonga on the edge of Arorangi beach and lagoon, our 5-star property is the perfect location to recharge your batteries.

Close your eyes and hear waves lapping on the sandy shore, as coconut trees sway overhead. As the sun sets over the Pacific each evening, the oceanfront setting of this luxury Rarotonga vacation rental is a scene out of a postcard. Five-star amenities, newly remodelled property, onsite beauty spa and four individual bungalow style suites give the property the feel of your own private resort, while a location in the heart of the village of Arorangi puts you close to shopping, golf, fitness centres, dining and more.​

With a concept designed around independence and luxury, Waterfoot House is ideal for refined travellers who can decide to be as pampered or as self-sufficient as they desire.”

Getting to and from Waterfoot House
Depending on the number of people in your party (Waterfoot sleeps from 1 to 8 guests), we will advise the options for arrival and departure airport transfers and for ease of getting around during your stay; costs of the services chosen can then be included in your holiday arrangements.

Waterfoot House is located on the beachfront in the Arorangi district next door to Manuia Beach Resort, only 15-minutes from Avarua Town and within walking distance of local shops, food outlets, etc.  For convenience, most guests will hire a vehicle (or vehicles depending on the number in your party) to aid getting around.  However, it is quite feasible to use the bicycles provided at the house or the circle island busses which pass by and stop on demand every hour.  Taxis are also available.
