This gem is in the best location on the entire island imho. Perfect for couples looking for a romantic, peaceful getaway with no fuss. We never closed our doors while home (no mosquitoes); we fell asleep to the sound of the waves pounding the reef, and awoke to the fresh ocean breeze and sun rising over the lagoon. A sight we enjoyed from our bed and balcony. A hotel-grade bed that made sleep so easy. We made use of the Free kayaks, snorkels and bicycles throughout our stay. Walking the beach everyday, swimming every morning, walking to the three motus (smaller islands), there are just so many things to do for free nearby. And lots of friendly dogs willing to keep you company on your walk :) Our villa had everything we needed, incredibly clean and well stocked. We used the kitchen everyday for cooking either breakfast or dinner, so we didn't have to eat takeout all the time. There is a 24/7 shop only 2 mins walk away, and Rima's Bakery for takeaways only 3 min cycle away. There is internet access onsite, and you can easily buy WiFi vouchers at the shop to use in the villa. Our hosts were friendly, ensured we had privacy, kept our room super clean, and well stocked. I wish it didn't have to end and won't hesitate to recommend this villa to any couple looking for a great holiday.…
We had a wonderful stay at Muri Shores! Gorgeous view! Exceptionally clean! Krystina, her husband and staff are fabulous. The muri night markets are right behind for great local food that is cheap. Bus stop just down to main road. Several restaurants within walking distance. The available bikes and kayaks are a nice addition. I would return here without question.
On the beach, feet to the water. Fully equipped studio bungalow behind Market, minutes to bus, restauants, small stores, water actitivities, and island dance shows. if U want to relax, quiet clean location and U don't need a resort, this is it. On my third trip, I'll stay here again. Krystana and Edna take care of any questions
I write this while looking out at the lagoon from my bed at Muri Shores. We could not have made a better choice in accommodation, it's perfect. Clean, tidy, comfortable, peaceful and relaxing and to top it off Krystina and the staff are lovely. The coffee just along the road is yum, Sails restaurant next door is too and we are looking forward to the night food market tonight, which is literally right behind Muri Shores...so convenient. On that note, it's an island, so everything is convenient and easy to get to. You will love it :-)
We had no idea what we were doing when we booked our accommodations at Muri Shores, never having been to Rarotonga before, but we feel like we got super lucky and scored one of the best locations the island has to offer. The room is spacious, the bed comfy, the bathroom shower is amazing, the spacious front deck, and the location can't be beat. The Kayaks were a huge bonus for us, and we really enjoyed just paddling away from our room and not having to deal with renting. Really the best location on the island because it's beach front, beach side of the Muri night market, and walking distance to everything you need. You will not need a car at this location.
