JJ's Retreat

JJ's Retreat is a locally owned business, and came out of our love for Rarotonga and all it has to offer. It is a wonderful place to live and work, and we get to share this paradise with friends and family and now more broadly, those who want to visit. James and Vanessa are a locals and can provide a ton of advice on attractions and locations. 

You will find everything is in keeping with the local environment. We are located on a back road, away from the main road traffic and all of our neighbours are locals going about their days in the usual island way. Our lush garden is the result of James who is a landscaper by trade, a lot of love and attention has been put in to making this a serene and tropical environment for people to truly relax in. And yet we are only a short walk to the beach, and a short scooter ride to one of the nicest beaches on the island - Rutaki Beach. Each villa has handmade furniture as James' second love is furniture making. 

Our boutique accommodation provides two private villas for adults only. We really have designed this get away to give you a break from your hectic life. The exclusive villas are located on a large acre section with plenty of outdoor living. Each modern villa is 55sq metres including a spacious deck where you can sunbathe or read in full cover from the sun on sun loungers. Outdoor dining on the privacy of your large deck is lovely or if you would prefer, there is a common BBQ area for use by both villas. Each villa has a full kitchen with modern amenities, a bathroom and open plan bedroom. They are fully self-contained and self-service.

Some added extras we offer - complimentary guest parking and starter pack - tea/coffee/milk.  Complimentary bicycles (1 men's, 1 women's). Also, there is a washing machine and clothesline which is shared with the other unit and is available for your use. We have on offer a food provider who can deliver to your door, from a gorgeous menu if you feel like staying in, otherwise there are some great local restaurants we can recommend.
