The owner operator, (and her cat and dog) run this place like a home away from home. Nothing is too much trouble and every little thing is catered for. Impeccable decor and very quiet. Wi Fi reception was a problem though. In our unit very intermittent. If you sat straight outside office better though. The only real negative of our...

The perfect place to stay in Muri Beach. The bungalows were self contained which allowed us to cook when we didn't feel like leaving the amazing views. Location is perfect, right on the water and minutes away from anything you need. We cannot thank Vina enough for looking after us and making Muri Beach hideaway feel like our home away...

I would like to say thank you to Vina who was a pleasure to know and her staff for making our stay very enjoyable and comfortable. Nothing was ever any trouble and they were very accomodating. We were lucky to have the bungalow facing the lagoon and were within walking distance to hotels, restaurants. what we liked was that it...

We enjoyed the peace and privacy of one of the garden rooms at the rear - we loved the garden and countryside views. We were only a few steps away from the lagoon, but nicely tucked away out of the wind. Our bungalow was spacious, well-equipped and comfortable and the overall location was great - only a short walk to...

We accidentally booked the hillside apartment, was a bit far away from the beach but hiring a scooter makes that no trouble. Clean and tidy, we were provided with a paw paw, fruit juice and long life milk. The locals living near by were lovely and friendly, as were the two cats that hung around! It was nice to be...

Lovely cool and shaded. Right on the lagoon. Clean and comfortable and a short stroll to whatever you want to do at Muri. Small grocery nearby and bus stop almost at the door. Free kayaks on property, SUPs can be hired a few hundred metres way. Plenty of places to eat, suiting all budgets - from the $13 fish burger...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed in a garden bungalow as part of a three week island hop of the Cook Islands back in April. Really lovely, spacious accommodation with very friendly hosts. Location is perfect, easy walk to watersports and nice restaurants and sits on a beautiful part of the beach. The Muri Beach Hideaway also offers free use of...

We were welcomed by "V" who settled us in and was very helpful explaining the area. Normally fresh fruit is provided in the unit but because of the cooler weather there was little available, eventually we did get some bananas which were nice. The bungalow is quite dark inside with little general lighting but there are good bedside lamps for...

We had 3 nights here August 2015 & it was just perfect. Our Villa had a lovely view of the lagoon & was right beside the pool. The gardens are very pretty & the deep verandah was nice to sit out on as the weather was a bit cool with a strong wind on the beach. The bed was very...

We stayed here in July 2015 for a family wedding - we had the two lotus bungalows and the waterfront bungalow, and the Maine Villa. My partner and I stayed in one of the Lotus bungalows which we LOVED! It was spotlessly clean, spacious and we loved the fact that it was private. Vina is a really warm and welcoming...
