The location is beautiful, bit pricey for the property but the amenities are wonderful. Snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, etc.
Apartment was very clean and much nicer than expected. We had two bedrooms and open plan kitchen/dining/lounge. Complimentary bowl of fruit was appreciated and the bed was very comfortable. We travelled with a teenager who found the hillside apartment too quiet and isolated. We (parents) loved it and other than the odd vehicle going past our window at night and the roosters crowing from 5am it was relatively quiet. Shops, restaurants, Muri night market, coconut candy stall and main part of accommodation within 10 mins walking distance away (slow walk). Guy selling vodka right next door which meant a bit of traffic but no inconvenience for us. His vodka is nice too. Excellent swimming/snorkelling beach down from main office. A short walk along the beach brings you to Koka Lagoon Cruises. ( Recommend this cruise but need to book as they fill up fast). Use of facilities (pool & equipment) wonderful - we took the kayaks out and used the pool just about every day. Washing machine and barbeque came in very handy as did the clothesline under the carport 'cause it rained on and off during our stay. Vina very friendly and approachable. I would stay here again - the price was reasonable and I liked the privacy.
We had trouble finding the place as the sign Muri Beach Hideaway is not at the turn off to the office. We mistakenly went onto private property but they gave us directions. Thankfully we arrived during daylight hours otherwise it could have been a hostile start to our holiday. Our arrival was unexpected - my email to Vina explaining we were getting a rental at the airport must have gone astray but she was lovely and we followed her to our Apartment. Getting hot water from the kitchen tap and shower was a bit tricky. Finally worked out that if the tap was turned to hot at half speed hot water came through eventually. Freezer door under the fridge opens slightly each time the fridge door is closed - didn't realise until I pulled some meat from the freezer and it had already thawed out - as had our other frozen food. Shut the freezer door again every time the fridge door is closed. The location is probably a bit isolated if you have kids, there's no pool up on the hillside and the beach is about a 10 minute walk away. It's about 20 mins to town so will need a car or scooter unless you're happy to catch the bus. The lights are a bit dim and unless the sun shines the inside can get a bit dark.
Location is very pleasing No wants that cant be obtained.
The money I was asked to send was totally different than my statement. Had to request fraud. Cancel my credit card and get a new one in the states.
Location on the hillside no welcome at arrival
We had a wonderful stay at Muri main Villa, (Muri Beach Hideaway) it's modern, very clean and to have our own cooking facilities and washing machine was not only a bonus, but for our visit the best!!!! it's close to restaurants, and the Muri market for all their delicious local fare, just a few minutes down the road from our Villa, The Lagoon for safe swimming is an easy 3 min stroll as is the swimming pool. The Te Vara Nui dance show is within walking distance, and well worth the visit, as is the glass bottom boats, captain Tama and Koka cruises. Vina is so welcoming and nothing is any trouble for her, she will go out of her way to make your stay a happy and pleasant one, Thank you Rarotonga we will return and make this location our first point of call.
No dislikes!!!, but be aware if you dont want to catch buses, transport is needed to get to town, 10k away. cars and motorbikes are dotted around the island for hire...... be woken at 5am every morning by the resident alarm clock of roosters and chickens!!! by no means a detraction........its part of the experience..........
Terrific location & stunning view. Comfortable & amazing, friendly host who goes out of her way to welcome you and makes sure your Rarotongan visit is a wonderful experience. We would return in a flash!
Nothing to dislike
Location Manager was very knowledgeable and friendly Ceiling fans were great rather than air conditioning Very clean,spacious and pleasant surroundings
Excessive growth in front of bungalow that restricted view of the lagoon.
Vina was an amazing host. the place is right on the beach and is absolutely amazing. The bungalows are your own space and just loved it here. Vina makes sure that all is good and goes out of her way. She is the perfect host.
Our host Vina was amazing. Nothing was to much trouble and she was always there with a welcoming smile. We stayed in the hillside villa which was private spacious and so clean! Thanks for an amazing stay
The villa was so secluded we felt like we were in our own place, it was fantastic. Fully self contained, we had no issues getting food/drinks with the night markets and muri beach cafes a 2 minute walk away. This also meant there were no other tourists wandering through our hideaway! Lovely host, good memories. Will absolutely come back.
Muri beach hideaway is private with a lovely pool overlooking the ocean. You have the best of all that raro can offer with privacy but been close to the resorts and all the local action around Muri. The staff the facilities were top notch kind and helpful will definitely been returning real soon and recommending to all
That I couldn't stay longer
Awesome accommodation option for couples, right on a lovely part of Muri Beach, peaceful and well equipped with everything you need! Vina is super lovely and helpful! Would definitely recommend and be back to stay again!
We loved the friendly and welcoming hosts and staff. We loved the location. The villa and grounds were very clean, tidy and well kept.
We struggled with the noise during the night and the early wake ups! (Thanks Mr Rooster and friends) but that wasn't a reflection of the Hideaway, just a life in Muri that we are not used to.
spacious. A good deck. Very clean. Good showers. Vina was out looking for us at 11pm as she had just discovered there was no sign on the road.
the party next door kept us awake until 3am. Lack of signage both at main road and up main drive. Impossible to find in the dark
We stayed in one of the hillside units and enjoyed the lush surroundings of tropical flowers and gardens. The main road was just a short walk and less than ten minutes walk to the Muri Beach Hideaway resort on the beach where we were able to use kayak to go out to one of the little islands while we were waiting to check into our next island accommodation. The owner was very gracious allowing us the use of our room for a few extra hours after regular check out time. I also very much enjoyed talking with them to get more of a local insight to the district. Thanks again :)
Close to everything that you need. Fantastic friendly host and beautiful lagoon views. Nothing but bliss peaceful times.
Only thing I didn't like was having to pack up and say goodbye after 10 days of relaxation.
The location was amazing, the staff lovely and the whole experience was a perfect escape from the stress of a life too busy. I unwound so quickly due to the peacefulness of this beautiful place. And, the resident dog and chickens were very friendly too.
Lack of any toiletries. Kitchen not brilliant and could do with a bit of modernisation to prevent stale smell. Also lost some food due to ants.
My wife and I stayed here for my 50th birthday. We had a beautiful outlook from the beachfront villa. The service was excellent, nothing was a problem. We were central to everything that Muri offers. It was such a great place to relax. Will definitely book it again.
Stayed with my 7 year old daughter for four days - breaking our journey back to the UK from NZ. Very relaxing time - use of kayaks a bonus.
Very dark room with basic decor inside No drawers to empty clothes from suitcase. Staff not readily available No extra bathroom amenities apart from soap - no shampoo, conditioners etc. No fresh fruit on arrival, as advertised. Housekeeping erratic - one day room not serviced at all and another day bed linen changed but not towels.
Right on beautiful beach, with islands an easy kayak away. Easy walk to shops, cafes and night market. Very friendly, helpful staff. Nothing was any bother. Organised airport pick up with leis and drop off. Very romantic, private, well set up bungalow.
Great location. Vina was a great host Accommodation was excellent and kitchen in villa we used was great.
Barking dogs and crowing roosters problems with hot water - very slow.
Vema's very friendly and helpful hosting. It's in a great position on the beachfront with unlimited dine-out options within walking distance. Far enough away from the masses.
Good location in Muri, rooms right by water and nearby main Muri attractions. Kitchens and rooms well kept and comfortable. Staff, when around, very friendly and knowledgeable of their island. Gave us a lift to the airport after our stay was over.
Front desk hours were a bit spotty, occasionally no one at front desk when posted hours stated otherwise.
