Our family (3 couples) rented all 3 villas for a week. It was just superb! The villas are so well-appointed with everything you could need. The balconies, while offering excellent views, are very private. We also made great use of the sun lounges on the foreshore as well as the double kayaks. The lagoon makes kayaking and snorkelling very safe....

Murishores must be THE place to be on Rarotonga. Best location possible right on the beach, very clean and comfortable house, airy and cool so aircondition not necessary. Very friendly service and even private use of kayak - wonderful to explore the lagoon. Falling asleep to the sound of the surf on the reef - we loved the place and...

We loved the location, the Lagoon & beach is just steps away. Also easy access to shops, cafes, restaurants and right behind the yummy night food markets. The staff were very friendly, helpful, accommodating and whilst not on site, just a phone call away. Beautiful welcome plate in the fridge on arrival with assorted items including fresh fruit. The gardens...

Everything about Muri Shores was wonderful. The villa was impeccably clean and the views were stunning - just a few metres between the villa and Muri lagoon! The villa has everything you could possibly want in a self-catered accommodation (plus more, as you get your own kayak and paddles!). The privacy between the three villas, and between our villa and...

We stayed at muri shores for 4 nights as part of a 7 night stay in Raro. We spent the first part of the week in Arorangi. The villa is literally on the beach but one of the biggest perks is that it's right next door to a great little bar/restaurant. The downside of Arorangi was that all the restaurants...

We decided earlier in the year to celebrate our 25th anniversary in Raro where we had our honeymoon in 1991. So glad I found Muri Shores just down the lagoon from where we had our honeymoon at a nearby resort. The location is excellent and Krystina was very helpful and friendly making sure we were all fine after settling in...

Best location in Raro, close to shops, transport, cafes. Bungalow is a few steps of the beach with beautiful views of the lagoon. The bungalow has everything you need, is spotlessly clean and Krystina and Eugene are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them. If you are looking for the perfect spot to totally relax then this...

What a beautiful spot to stay in Raro! We would definitely go back. It felt like our own little piece of paradise. We could sit on the deck listening to the water lapping and distant sound of drums from the nearby island. Or jump in our double kayak and head off to one of the small islands nearby.
