From the moment my sister and I walked into our cottage we new we found the perfect place to stay. A warm welcome from Gwen, JoJo and the marketing manager little boy, who kept us company during our afternoon nap after arriving on an early flight. We adored the view from our deck which over looked the lagoon and our...

Views upon views! We arrived at night and Gwen was kind enough to greet us out on the street because of the remoteness (no signs). We woke up to the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen with jaw dropping location right on Muri Beach. It's close enough to town to walk and far enough to feel like you have...

Our cottage had location, location, location and so tranquil. None of that resort hype although close to the hype if you needed it. I would certainly recommend Gwen's cottage to others. No TV......just the sounds of the waves and water lapping at your doorstep. Lovely chats each morning with Joe Joe the groundsman. Internet available although I found it easier...

If you are looking for self contained affordable accomodation, this is it. My daughter and I stayed here for 10 days late July 2016 and will definitely be back. The cottages have every thing you need, and although a little tired, when you are out and about most days or sitting on the deck looking at the view it really...

This cottage was quaint and and everything we needed. It was a large room with kitchen queen bed (very comfortable) and kitchenette. The aspect is perfect with sweeping views of the lagoon. Lovley to sit on the deck with a G&T in the evening. The sun rises on this side so you may have an earliyish morning but this is...

How wonderful to arrive travel weary and feast your eyes on that view ! Accommodation albeit basic offers excellent value on Rarotonga . Far enough out of Muri to be peaceful yet close enough to wander up the beach in either sunlight or moonlight to the cafes restaurants and bars that Muri offers .Get up early and watch the glorious...

This is a great place. Peaceful, private and in an excellent location. I had booked the garden studio, but discovered that it wasn't really what I needed for this holiday. Was very grateful to Gwen for being flexible and getting me into one of the cottages. Think well loved, perfectly clean Kiwi bach with everything you need and a wow...

Had another fantastic stay with Gwen and little Boy and Zoe. Be prepared for a self service stay so no new linen etc or servicing of the room but the privacy more than makes up for this so just take your own ... we stayed in the Pole house, and last time in one of the Bungalows, they are right...

Muri Beach Cottages offer a great location for a quiet holiday base on the beach with a variety of more up-market resorts in walking or wading distance. Gwen is a wonderful hostess who makes guests feel like friends and who overcomes any problems with ease. The cottages are simple but offer privacy, comfort and value combined with a perfect view...
