After arriving on an early morning flight to the Cook Islands in November 2012 we were pleasantly welcomed by hosts, Steve & Phoebe. Had a great stay at Muri Retreat for the duration of 2 weeks and was made to feel at home by the great couple. They were only too happy to answer any questions we had and went out of their way to arrange scooter hire etc (yes Phoebe even watched me shamefully fail my scooter test haha). The property is maintained daily and is ideally situated up from Muri beach, away from all the hotels etc based along Muri beach. Great view from the top balcony and pool a good size to take a dip when you can't be bothered going to the beach. Rooms are spacious and beds comfy. Kitchen well equipped for simple meals when staying in. Would recommend scooter or hire car to explore the island and snorkelling at Fruits of Rarotonga rather than Muri beach. Again the hosts are what make the stay at Muri Retreat great, don't miss the chance to learn how to husk coconuts with Steve and play the Ukelele with Phoebe. Would definately stay here again and look forward to going back to the Cook Islands some day soon. Thanks so much for a great stay Steve & Phoebe :)
