Decided to stay at Muri Retreat after researching a few places. MT is great for families. The rooms were clean and comfortable and is just a short walk to the township of Muri and beaches. Steve and Phoebe were happy to assist with anything to make our stay comfortable. Nice bbq area with pool and laundry and lush green surroundings....

Clean and basic but had everything you could want for self catering. A 10 minute walk to the local township and cafes and a wonderful view of the sea and spectacular sunrises. We had a fabulous time and Steve and Phoebe are great hosts.

This little hideaway is perfect for busy overworked couples who want privacy, but also be very close to town and the beach (approx. 5-10mins of easy walking). We enjoyed being surrounded by dense vegetation in the hillside rather than the hustle of too many tourists and resorts so close to each other on the lagoon. I have strong allergies and...

Phoebe and Steve - thank you for making our holiday in Rarotonga so memorable. We stayed in the Ono apartment, small, clean, really well appointed and great value. The view is lovely. Phoebe, you are a real treasure. Your friendliness and willingness to help in any way possible sets you apart from most apartment owners. Love your wee dog, enjoyed...

We enjoyed our stay at Muri Retreat so much, it exceeded all expectations and was great value for money. Situated off the main road, you really enjoy a sense of privacy, with only the occasional rooster in the morning interrupting that. Kura and her parents were excellent hosts, they told us about the must sees and dos in the area...

My boyfriend and I stayed in a top floor apartment for 8 nights in early July. Kura personally showed us our room when we arrived at 2am and gave us fresh fruit in the morning. The room was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. The retreat is a five minute walk to a perfect beach and a pleasant walk...

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay here. We were in the ground floor one bedroom which was well equipped, comfortable and convenient. The Hosts are most friendly and welcoming. They organised our airport transfers and were forthcoming with loads of handy information about the island. The location in Muri was perfect for us as we rented a scooter...

Kura, Phoebe and Steve offer an incredible self contained apartment. we had great ocean views from our second floor suite and full cooking facilities. Awesome sun rises from the bed.

Lovely warm welcome from Steve and Phoebe, who arranged our airport pickup. We stayed in a breezy first floor apartment with sea view, comfy bed and verandah to sit out. It had all the kitchen bits you would need to cater, but we just made breakfast and lunch and enjoyed eating out each evening at the selection of half a...

We stayed here for 8 nights in the smallest unit on the ground floor. The room itself had a living area, small kitchenette, bedroom area and bathroom. There was insect screens, a fan in the bedroom and was comfortable for the two of us. As we went in summer it was very hot and hard to sleep, however this was...
