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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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. Coconut grove out the back. really helpful and suggestive of things to do. We learned how to husk and crack open coconuts, and then extract the cream in order to... More

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... More

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... More

Not on the beach but a five minute walk. Location is good, although up a slight hill and there is a scary dog but just ignore the dog and the dog ignores you, also the neighbours are fantastic (The dog oweners). I would recomend hiring a moped to see the island and it doesn't really matter where the location is... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. Steve and phoebe were brilliant and so welcoming and helpful, they were always available if we had any questions and had great recommendations for places to go. We split our time in the cooks between rarotonga and aitutaki, staying at muri retreat for 3 nights initially and then another 2 nights when... More
