Great location, pool and studio apartment with all amenities. Including insect screens and a lovely shaded balcony. Being in a smaller complex makes you feel secure, but private. In addition, a short walk down the drive to all Muri Beach area has to offer. We will be back to enjoy more.

we shared with a larger group and had run of the environment. Friendly place with great accommodation and a short walk to the nearby village. Self contained units which had all the facilities we needed. Loved the local wildlife as well!

If you want luxury, this isn't for you! If you want accommodation Kiwi Beach Bach style, this is a must place to stay! Everything you need is in these apartments, comfy beds, fridges/freezer, showers, and a big mention about having your swimming pool not too far away!A BBQ is available for use if required. Geckos come free most evenings, and you will get a visit from the onsite cat and dogs!! Muri is just a few minutes walk down the hill, whatever you need is catered for in this village; cafes/bars/restaurants/dairys/gift shops/vehicle hire/beachs.... etc. It may seem a bit 'budget' but when we travel we just like a roof over our heads, somewhere to shower/toilet, and a bed to sleep in; any other extras are a bonus. Rooms looked after by Vena if you need anything, grounds are kept in a tidy appearance, and the roosters aren't too bad!!

This is our 2nd visit to Muri Hillside cottages (first time with baby) & will be returning again! House was v spacious & well equipt including everything from coffee plunger to bbq equipment. A lovely house keeper kept everything spotless & owners v helpful with making calls on our behalf etc. House overlooks lovely gardens & pool was great. We appreciated being up the hill where it is quieter than the waterfront yet still only a short walk with the pram everywhere including to local night markets & bakery for fresh bread each morning. Enjoyed the free range chickens & friendly dog.

We stayed at Muri hillside as a large family, booking out all rooms except 1 to celebrate our nieces 21st. We could not have picked a better place!! Hosts are extremely welcoming and truly leave you to enjoy the facilities. Pool and surrounding area is the absolute highlight and meant hours of entertainment for the kids while parents and family could sit poolside. TIP - take some pool toys for the kids! Spot is walking distance to Muri shops, cafes, beaches and night markets (which are a must) Because every accomodation block has its own living area you can have time apart from family if need be ;) also comes with full fridge and kitchen facilities so you can stock up or make a meal when needed. TIP - every room comes with a DVD player and tv quality is poor so pack some DVDs for wet days or nights. TIP - there are discounts in the guest book for koka lagoon and te vara nui so boom when you get there or email Serena. We will definitely be back!!

Excellent place to stay, only a 5 minute walk to Muri beach. There was everything you could need and even a pool. It was a chilled relaxed atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome by Serena, Conrad and family. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Loved everything about our stay..was like a home away from home. Most houses were booked with other family members(destination wedding) and we were all very happy throughout our whole stay. Apartment was lovely and catered to my families needs perfectly. Location is great, literally 5min stroll to the heart Muri and the discount for Koka lagoon cruise was an added bonus. Thanks Conrad and Serena and also Vina the housekeeper..thanks for letting my kids follow you around and call you aunty!! See you all again soon!

Not sound proof at all so depends on who you have staying above you! Unfortunately our neighbours above were super noisy with kids and music. Room was ok condition, guess you get what you pay for as price is cheap compared to rest in Muri. Location was awesome, handy to everything in Muri and walking distance.

Conrad and Serena were extremely gracious, friendly and welcoming! The upgrade was a welcomed surprise on arrival and it did not disappoint. Amenities and facilities gave us great comfort on our stay, and the housekeeper Vina was always willing to assist or lend a hand should we need anything. The pool and BBQ area were enjoyed by our small group daily. Also the addition of the filtered tap available for re-filling bottles was an added bonus. Location is second to none. The added fact that guests staying on the property get a discount for the Koka Lagoon Cruise (MUST DO ATTRACTION) was another welcomed surprise! We plan on visiting again with family, so will definitely be looking to stay again!
