    A very standard little inn by the beach with quirky expat owners. A bit of a hippie vibe, not everything super clean, not everything makes a ton of sense, but overall a pleasant stay. Best were the local employees who were all fabulous!More

    Steve and Geraldine were lovely hosts and the staff were great. I really didn’t want to come home. Sit at the Shipwreck bar and watch the 🌅 and listen to the music or take advantage of Steve’s recommendations for good local restaurants. We’ll be back.

    Kia Orana Stephanie, Steve here, sorry we don't have a sailing dingy here. We do have kayaks and SUP's though. There is a sailing club at Muri, I think you can rent them from there. :-)
