How wonderful to arrive travel weary and feast your eyes on that view ! Accommodation albeit basic offers excellent value on Rarotonga . Far enough out of Muri to be peaceful yet close enough to wander up the beach in either sunlight or moonlight to the cafes restaurants and bars that Muri offers .Get up early and watch the glorious...

This is a great place. Peaceful, private and in an excellent location. I had booked the garden studio, but discovered that it wasn't really what I needed for this holiday. Was very grateful to Gwen for being flexible and getting me into one of the cottages. Think well loved, perfectly clean Kiwi bach with everything you need and a wow... More

Had another fantastic stay with Gwen and little Boy and Zoe. Be prepared for a self service stay so no new linen etc or servicing of the room but the privacy more than makes up for this so just take your own ... we stayed in the Pole house, and last time in one of the Bungalows, they are right...

Muri Beach Cottages offer a great location for a quiet holiday base on the beach with a variety of more up-market resorts in walking or wading distance. Gwen is a wonderful hostess who makes guests feel like friends and who overcomes any problems with ease. The cottages are simple but offer privacy, comfort and value combined with a perfect view...

We booked here following TA reviews and a lot of research into locations. We were not disappointed. Gwen had arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and the driver opened up the cottage for us. It's a WOW view that cannot fail to make up for any small deficiency. Gwen was there, in fact, and came down... More

We stayed just 2 nights after landing at 1.30am as the bungalows we booked were full. Arriving in our bungalow we saw a quaint, charming place. At sunrise we were amazed with the seaview. This is the best hotel view I have had probably. Our bungalow was located on the prettiest, safest (to swim) part of the lagoon (Muri beach)... More

We've just arrived home after our 3 week stay at Muri Beach Cottages as part of our "Round the World Trip". We cannot recommend Gwen and her accomodation more highly! We stayed in the studio cottage that, although basic, fulfilled all our needs. It is situated in the lush tropical gardens, just a moments walk to the stunning lagoon, where... More

Incredible location + great value = satisfaction guaranteed. Lovely hosts and having some pets around just adds to the warm fuzzy home away from home vibe. The cottages are located at the quiet end of Muri beach, allowing incredible views with optimum privacy. An absolute gem. Gwan and Diya will help out with local information you might otherwise miss if... More
