Lovely intimate hideaway in beautiful gardens. Everything you could need for a stay. Kayaks, bikes and plenty of snorkelling gear. Laundry. Drying racks. Loved there was a blender in the kitchen. Lovely hosts who were super friendly and helpful - beats a big resort hands down

Daydreamer Awesome!
Great location although a scooter or car makes your trip much easier and better, awesome hosts, helpful and fun, loved staying at Daydreamer, small resort so everything is easy, free kayaks and snorkels to use. We would definitely recommend to everyone. Better than the pictures show.

We loved the resort is small in numbers, only 7 units I think, awesome helpful hosts in Rob and Anna, great location but definitely have a easier holiday if you rented a scooter or car. Loved it, would recommend to everyone.

Delightful Daydreamer Resort
Julie, Paul and Angel made us feel so welcome - excellent hospitality. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Very comfortable rooms with everything you might need for a self-catering option. Beautiful gardens, decks, patios and pool area with great quality outdoor furniture. Close to great beaches (left for 5 min walk to beach in front of Vaima restaurant - great coral and fish; right and it's an 8 min bike ride to the Rarotongan Resort beach - gorgeous also!) for snorkelling and swimming. Resort bikes were very handy to get around. A bit of road noise but in general felt like a very tranquil place to stay. Unlike other Raro places very quiet re: rooster noise! No dramas at all from start to finish. Loved the little extras like free first breakfast supplies and fresh fruit dropped off to us to use. New favourite places to eat and drink - Charlies (fab live music) and Vaiana's (beautiful beach bar).
