We had a good time at MBH. The location is really what you are paying for here - right in the heart of Muri and within short walking distance of the night market and numerous restaurants and cafes. You're also right next to the beach which overlooks the lagoon - absolutely stunning! There are kayaks, snorkels, masks, and reef shoes... More

If you are staying in the Muri area, this is a good place to stay! There are two cafes within very short walking distance, and other eateries just a little further. The night market (Seems to be food only) runs on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights and is pretty nice. Vina is very nice and accommodating, but there were... More

We stayed in the beachfront bungalow for about a week while on our first visit to the Cook Islands. The bungalow was amazing and the proximity to restaurants and a small shop was great. It also had a little kitchen and the fridge was stocked up with the basics on arrival which was really nice. We especially enjoyed the view... More

We enjoyed two nights at Muri Beach Hideway. We had a villa just set back from Muri beach, opposite the pool, in a beautiful garden setting. And, as indicated, it is hidden away. The view over the fence is not great but can be ignored. The villa was spacious, good lay out with its own kitchenette. The king size bed... More

The owner operator, (and her cat and dog) run this place like a home away from home. Nothing is too much trouble and every little thing is catered for. Impeccable decor and very quiet. Wi Fi reception was a problem though. In our unit very intermittent. If you sat straight outside office better though. The only real negative of our... More

The perfect place to stay in Muri Beach. The bungalows were self contained which allowed us to cook when we didn't feel like leaving the amazing views. Location is perfect, right on the water and minutes away from anything you need. We cannot thank Vina enough for looking after us and making Muri Beach hideaway feel like our home away... More

We enjoyed the peace and privacy of one of the garden rooms at the rear - we loved the garden and countryside views. We were only a few steps away from the lagoon, but nicely tucked away out of the wind. Our bungalow was spacious, well-equipped and comfortable and the overall location was great - only a short walk to... More
