“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We stayed at the Hibiscus Villa for 5 nights and it was just wonderful. Mii and Willie and their team picked us up from the airport and took us to the villa where there was fresh fruit and filtered water waiting for us. The house was beautifully situated in farmland with roosters and chickens here and there, coconut palms, fruit trees, etc, etc, which the children loved. It had a very green outlook which was set back far enough from the hustle and bustle of the main road, but very close to walk to the private beach. There was an excellent sealed road and parking access right outside the door. Lots of facilities - BBQ, laundry, great gas cooker. Everything was very clean and the local geckos were enjoyed by the children. A wonderful place to stay and Mii had the perfect balance between being on hand for any queries but also leaving us to enjoy our stay. Prior to arriving, I had exchanged multiple emails with Mii who was brilliant with answering my many questions about Rarotonga, specifics about the accommodation and other questions. All the other reviews of Muri Heights were so positive that I was happy to take a chance on this accommodation. Our experience of Muri Heights (2 adults, 2 children) was equally positive. Temperature wise, the placement of all the windows meant that breezes kept us cool-ish without having to resort to using the overhead fans. In general Rarotonga is a wonderful place to visit. We enjoyed the church service with lovely singing, Adventure Cook Islands was the go-to place for kayak and personal flotation device hire and Te Vara Nui Village and evening show was brilliant.

A group of friends and I rented both Villas for a week whilst we were on the island for a wedding. What an incredible week!!!
We were able to relax on the huge balcony, have BBQs and a few drinks and make the most of our time in the sun. The villas are clean and tidy and Mii made our stay all the more enjoyable.
Thank you so much Mii. We will be back for another Sea Eagles game.

We stayed 2 weeks in this lovely home right in the center of Muri. Mii is your host and she is lovely and caring. The Hibiscus Villa is fantastic! It is very clean and very new with a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a good bathroom and a fantastic porch. This is really a great place if you like self catering. Especially for the price you pay.
Thanks Mii for a lovely time. We really feel we chose the best place to stay for our stay in Rarotonga.

Room Tip: If you can..choose the Hibiscus Villa!

The place is only a block and a half from one of the best places of the island, the morning view is perfect, is quiet and relaxing. The are is perfect, there are all the things you might need withoud needing to go often to town, good restaurante and good coffe just around the corner. Mii is such a good owner and hostest, she is always constantly taking care of every thing and without been at any moment invasive or overworried. The house is pretty and huge! Is like feeling in your own place. Even been there for work and meetings, going back every day was a nice experience.

We have been on many island holidays over the years, but our stay at Muri Heights Villas has been the best yet. Mii (our host) was very friendly and welcoming. She went out of her way to ensure we had a great time and our needs were looked after - she even dropped off an island feast one evening that was delicious. We had friends stay in the villa next door and our children played together in the lovely plantation. The villas were well equipped and BBQs on the large deck were a wonderful way to spend the evening. They are centrally located but away from the road/restaurant & resort noise closer to the beach. It only took a few minutes to walk to the beautiful private beach section right on Muri lagoon. We will definitely come back for a visit Mii, thank you so much.

We loved our time here - from being met by Willie at the airport to our sad departure. We stayed in Frangipani Villa where we enjoyed the space, both inside and outside. Its setting about three minutes walk to the beach means it is lovely and quiet but close to everything. Mii was always so helpful in answering our questions and providing advice on places to eat and visit.

Frangipani was so homely, fantastic for our two young children and had everything we could need. It was lovely spending the evenings outside on the deck watching the geckos. As I write this I'm just dreaming of being back there!

What a fantastic place to stay! this was our first stay in Rarotonga on the way back to the UK from NZ and we got our accommodation right first time. Plenty of space for us and our two young children and the spacious deck was a brilliant place to relax during the day. Close to many of the main ‘tourist’ activities and the lagoon but far enough away to give total peace and quiet. Children loved playing on the decking, exploring the nearby areas and trying to interact with the local chickens. If like us you prefer a chilled out, relaxing, private and quiet place to stay then this is for you. Very reasonable in price and Mii extremely friendly and helpful. If we got back to Rarotonga we would DEFINITELY be on touch with Mii to arrange our stay with her again.
