Enjoy a quintessential South Pacific Island getaway holiday at Waterfoot House.

For the past 400 years, the Barton family home has been the The Waterfoot, a Northern Ireland historically listed estate on the shores of Loch Erne. 30 years ago a branch of the family settled on Rarotonga and built a home and business. The family home has recently been refurbished to 5 star standard. We invite you to share this beautiful home away from home with us. 

With waves lapping on the sandy shore, coconut trees swaying overhead and the sun setting 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 bedrooms 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.

Get out and enjoy the near-daily sunshine in outdoor living areas with al-fresco living, lounging and dining spaces. As the sun sinks toward the water, heat up the barbecue for a dinner of fresh local delights and tropical cocktails as the suns sets directly in front of the Villa, then watch the stars come out as you float around in the 20 meter infinity swimming pool. Secluded amid lush tropical gardens, the ample pool terrace invites you to dreamy days in the Pacific breeze.

Take a morning dip in the beautiful swimming pool, luxuriate on elegant sun loungers, and savour the breath-taking views. Enjoy a tropical island breakfast from the pool side dining pavilion. Take a beach-combing stroll down the beach and a dip in the blue lagoon. To totally unwind, treat yourself to one of a number of spa treatments at our onsite facility. 

Indulge in the ocean views and warm breezes from open-concept interiors with fold-away glass walls or sliding glass doors leading to the pool terrace and gardens. Open walkways join the bedroom bungalows with the main living areas, creating a lovely flow of space and air.


The fully equipped kitchen sits in its own bungalow and here you will be able to find everything you need to whip up all sorts of meals. Prefer not to cook, our onsite staff are happy to prepare your meals for you as required at an extra charge.  ​Savour a bottle of fine wine in the sumptuous central lounge under soaring ceilings, the outdoor pool lounge or on the sprawling covered balcony that surrounds the main lounge.


The four bedrooms at Waterfoot House can accommodate up to eight friends or family members traveling together. It is also the perfect setting for your business retreat or planning session. There are two honeymoon-worthy master suites with king beds, en-suite bathrooms with double vanities, covered balconies with rattan furniture, direct access to the pool terrace and ocean views: one with a built in Jacuzzi on the balcony. The other two bedrooms have a queen bed and en-suite bathroom, and two twin beds and en-suite. All suites have TV's, a writing desk and are air conditioned. All four bedroom suites are located in a tropical garden setting and are wonderfully elegant, spacious and cosy.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
