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 is a local and can provide a ton of advice on local attractions and locations and his wife Vanessa has been here for 5 years now, with an appreciation of being a tourist (8 visits before moving permanently) and then living here.
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.
