We stayed here for 4 nights and the owners were very helpful and friendly. The room is clean and big. Also, you can see the big lagoon from the balcony. This place is off the main road a few hundred meters so it is nice and quite. There were plenty of noisy roosters in the morning! But you will get... More

This was our third time back to Muri Retreat and we loved it just as much as always. The location is fantastic and so peaceful and wonderful views,the garden is just gorgeous and we love that it is just so private. We have stayed at resorts before but find they can be crowded. Steve & Phoebe made us feel so... More

Muri Retreat is a 12 minute stroll in the middle of the day to the village so for us a perfect location. Off the main road and up a slope it has location with peace and quiet (apart from the roosters that are everywhere on the island). We picked a one bedroom as it suited us and were on the... More

We stayed with our family for the week and we're able to book all 4 apartments, it worked fantastically to have a couple in each room and have a bathroom and small kitchen to ourselves, close to everything you need but tucked away so you don't hear the road all day like some places, would definitely recommend fir a group...

The retreat is small - only 4 units so its very peaceful and our unit was lovely - couldn't want for anything. The gardens are beautiful and... More

Decided to stay at Muri Retreat after researching a few places. MT is great for families. The rooms were clean and comfortable and is just a short walk to the township of Muri and beaches. Steve and Phoebe were happy to assist with anything to make our stay comfortable. Nice bbq area with pool and laundry and lush green surroundings.... More

Clean and basic but had everything you could want for self catering. A 10 minute walk to the local township and cafes and a wonderful view of the sea and spectacular sunrises. We had a fabulous time and Steve and Phoebe are great hosts.

This little hideaway is perfect for busy overworked couples who want privacy, but also be very close to town and the beach (approx. 5-10mins of easy walking). We enjoyed being surrounded by dense vegetation in the hillside rather than the hustle of too many tourists and resorts so close to each other on the lagoon. I have strong allergies and... More

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
