Vina who is the host of this amazing place is great. The bungalows are great, comfy and clean what more do you need. This is a small and quiet little place to stay. Easy access to the beach and a swimming pool also with lots of loungers and kayaks so use also. Ask Vina anything and she is more than...

In August we spent 14 nights at Muri Beach Hideaway and it was a delightful experience. The location is incredible - walking distance of any number of shops, restaurants and cafes and right on the beach. The bungalows are extremely comfortable and Vina is an absolute treasure who couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. We loved all the animals and...

I recently stayed for 5 nights at the Muri Beach Hideaway. I have to say that anyone who makes any negative comment in their review about this location is simply silly and can be ignored. This place is heaven on earth. I was completely blown away by how much the bungalow, and the island of Rarotonga in general, exceeded my...

We had a good time at MBH. The location is really what you are paying for here - right in the heart of Muri and within short walking distance of the night market and numerous restaurants and cafes. You're also right next to the beach which overlooks the lagoon - absolutely stunning! There are kayaks, snorkels, masks, and reef shoes...

If you are staying in the Muri area, this is a good place to stay! There are two cafes within very short walking distance, and other eateries just a little further. The night market (Seems to be food only) runs on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights and is pretty nice. Vina is very nice and accommodating, but there were...

We stayed in the beachfront bungalow for about a week while on our first visit to the Cook Islands. The bungalow was amazing and the proximity to restaurants and a small shop was great. It also had a little kitchen and the fridge was stocked up with the basics on arrival which was really nice. We especially enjoyed the view...

We enjoyed two nights at Muri Beach Hideway. We had a villa just set back from Muri beach, opposite the pool, in a beautiful garden setting. And, as indicated, it is hidden away. The view over the fence is not great but can be ignored. The villa was spacious, good lay out with its own kitchenette. The king size bed...
