About CINDY Adams-Vining
Having visited Rarotonga many times helping to run sailing regattas for young Cook Islands and NZ sailors, we decided to buy a house that we could holiday in and share with others. We purchased the Flametreee Restaurant in 2014 and began the ambitious project of transforming this into a large house that would accommodate our families and friends. We really enjoyed this project (that took almost two years), getting to know the local builders, contractors, neighbours and legal processes. We currently live on our boat in Picton New Zealand to be close to our older and younger families and travel to Rarotonga at least twice a year - staying as long as well can. We are so fortunate to have good neighbours and friends who manage our property and our guests for us on the island as well as a delightful pair of cleaners who take a great deal of pride in the house. In 2017 we installed the swimming pool which has been much enjoyed by our guests as well as the close proximity to the lagoon.

Why CINDY Adams-Vining chose Areiti Tapere
We chose the Flametree as we saw it had loads of potential for us to use our creative flair with renovations. We love Muri area and wanted our house to be in this area where it is close to the lagoon and all the other amenities as well as being part of a typical Rarotongan neighbourhood.
What makes this House unique
We are receiving very positive feedback from guests who are particularly loving the space the house offers with plenty of quiet corners or larger social areas. The proximity and easy access to the lagoon is also a bonus as is the pool right in the back yard. Another unique feature of the Villa is the marine life in the stream. Some of the eels (Tuna) -who you can see in the water most days, are over 80 years old and are famous with all the locals on the island.
