This place is excellent - I would highly recommend it. This is away from the main road but it's a quick walk to the beach - I would recommend you taking a torch if you are walking back at night. Phoebe (the owner) was so helpful - would definately stay here again.

I organized a trip for my husband, James, as a 50th birthday present. We went last November (2018). Having never been to the Cook Islands, I was just hoping I had picked the right place to stay. We really lucked out with Muri Retreats. Clean, beautiful apartment with a full kitchen, including toaster, single serving blender for smoothies, filtered water, hot plate, fridge and freezer. Stunning views, lush gardens. The property has a open air cabana with pool, barbeque, TV and DVD and book collection. There is also a laundry room. Docile, lovely roosters and chickens roam the property (and really the whole island). With only 4 apartments, it is very quiet, private, and serene. To make the stay even better, the owners Steve and Phoebe are fantastic sources of island information and just all around super wonderful cool people, very personable, helpful, friendly and kind. If we ever get back to Rarotonga there is no place else we would stay.

We stayed 15 nights at Muri retreat and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The apartment was clean, well appointed and surrounded by lovely gardens. The view towards Muri Beach was great and the walk down was on a well surfaced road and only took 5 minutes to walk to the lagoon. The pool was small but great for cooling off in. Close to good eating places and the night markets. Steve and Phoebe were great, very helpful but not intrusive.

We absolutely loved this place. Phoebe was so friendly and helpful. We were here 8 days in July 2018 and it was perfect. It was in such a great location away from the busy places on the main strip. It had a beautiful scenery on the balcony overlooking the palm trees and the sea. I will definitely come back and stay here.

My Mum and I stayed 6 nights in late Sept 2018. We were hoping to do some less touristy things on Rarotonga ... and staying at Muri Retreat was a great way to plug into the Raro way off life - off the tourist trail ... simply by spending some time with Steve and Phoebe and asking a few questions and listening to some of their tales! The house and individual apartments are really well laid out with a lot of thought (and hard work) - the end result is great and it is quite interesting seeing how it has all been pieced together! It is a very attractive place to stay with real island atmosphere! Phoebe and Steve are delightful colourful characters with quite a story to tell with how they have ended up in Raro. We enjoyed our time at Muri Retreat immensely. Thank you again Phoebe and Steve!
