This was our second time staying at the Muri Shell Bungalows. Just as before, the units were spotlessly clean. The yard and path to the beach is well maintained. The bungalows are a short 3 minute walk to the beach, restaurants, bakeries, scooter rentals and stores. Both units have full sized kitchens, barbecues and access to a shared washer. Muri... More

We are a family of 4 on a round the world trip, and stayed here 5 nights or so. We would stay here again, and would fully recommend it to others. The perfectly located and very clean, well taken care of cottage had a fully stocked kitchen, was spacious, and my boys loved the fact they had their very own... More

We stayed there for seven nights at the end of February 2015. And we enjoyed every minute there. The bungalows are located only a two minute walk to the most beautiful beach on the island. They are quite big, very clean and the kitchen is well equiped. But the best thing there are the hosts Tina and Mike. They are... More

All the amenities you could want including blender for smoothies, coffee grinder and plunger etc. Superb location as has been mentioned in other reviews. The best part was the hospitality... More

I have just arrived back after staying 8 nights in Jan at Muri Shell Bungalows. It is in a great location as it in the heart of Muri Village and just down the road from the beach. It is also very affordable if you want somewhere cheap to stay on the Island. The location was peaceful and it was very... More

Very affordable, very clean, very close to Muri Beach approx. 100 meter walk down the track past Poo & Terry's place. Eric lives in the front... More

We stayed in Muri Shell bungalows in October, and we really enjoy this place. The situation is perfect for those who want to travel with a "budget". The bungalows has everything you need, the bed is comfortable, everything is very clean (as the island is!) and the veranda with the BBQ grill is perfect for relaxation when the evening coming....

Great location in the heart of Muri Village. Short stroll to the local store, restaurants and cafes, and most importantly an easy 2 minutes to the beach, down a private ROW. Set on a lovely grassed and garden section, it was a nice place to come back to and relax away from the beach once we had our fill of... More
