A fantastic holiday home for those on a budget. Lovely big deck with views onto the surrounding hills and lush vegetation. The home was very clean, sleeps 5 people and has everything you need including a washing machine, Only 5 minutes walk from the stunning Muri Lagoon.

Arrived home from a fabulous 4 days in the Cook Islands for a wedding. Muri Heights villa accommodated for 5 of us comfortably. As I was looking for something affordable knowing the beach is never too far away this place was ideal. The place was located right in the heart of Muri, which hosts the night markets & has many restaurants & resorts to bar hop around.The villa was close to the scooter rental hire which was convenient to grab our scooters.
Happy sitting on the massive deck, and the place had everything you need and more. Facilities were well equipped. The place was very clean, tidy & presentable. The host Mii was friendly & easy to deal with. Would definitely recommend to others.
I also like to pick a couple of things to improve on just so the owners are always looking to make the stay better.
A shower door would be good, just to keep the water in the shower and not soaking up the bath mat, and the couch to sit on was not the most comfy couch. Definitely no problems for us at all but I always like to give feedback on things to improve on. Loved our stay over all & would definitely come back.

This holiday house was the best value for money and amazing location of our whole holiday. we stayed in a few other places over our trip and muri heights was the best value, the biggest house, the best balcony and the best location / view. its an older style inside, ..things arent new and sparkly..not modern furniture but still comfortable and clean and spacious. fully functional kitchen..except the blender wasn't working and I was looking forward to making fresh fruit smoothies after reading a previous review...:(..., and air con in master bedroom was sensational.... altho with the amazing breeze we opened all windows and hardly used air con at all. the decking was fabulous sitting outside most nights listening to the night time noises and even on days we had massive showers we could sit outside and enjoy the rain undercover,,
the only thing that may upset travellers is when our driver collected us they weren't 100% sure on where we were staying,,, as in they didn't know a place called Muri Heights... and there was no sign from road for muri heights,like lots of other rental houses have a sign from the main road up into the hills.., in fact there was a sign up a hill .. at our shared driveway.. for another property next door which confused the driver even more..and it was only because I could see the house from road and it was same as the pictures, did we find it ok. so a sign from road OR at least at the driveway.. might be beneficial for travellers who aren't as relaxed as we are.:):)
The owner called us several times to check in.. which was great!!
the only other thing I could say that's negative was that our BBQ gas bottle was empty and we were having friends up for a Sunday BBQ and had to rush off to a swap and go and change the bottle over ourselves.. which cost us $50NZ.
which isn't a major drama it just would have been nice for owners to have checked the gas bottles themselves as some travellers might not have a spare $50 to spend...
We loved it here. and would def. recommend the accommodation to everyone!!..

Room Tip: book your car / scooter from Polynesian rentals pick up in muri beach you can walk down the hill and collect it.

We stayed at Muri Heights Frangipani Villa for 6 nights in June 2015. Overall we really enjoyed our time there, it was very well equipped and fabulous value for money (a relief after Aitutaki which is so overpriced!)
The hot water system is solar, so if you dont get a sunny day, the water wont be hot but that didnt really bother us.
We loved the location; it was easy to walk to the beach, restaurants, even tikioka beach for snorkelling!!
We managed to get locked out of one of the bedrooms and Mii's daughter & her husband came to help us. Then my son had an accident off the balcony, thankfully he was fine. The family were great throughout these ordeals. Such lovely people
Would definitely recommend

We went to lovely Muri, Rarotonga, with a large wedding party who stayed at several locations. We were lucky to have this lovely holiday home for our stay and everything about it was absolutely fabulous. Also, hearing from the other guests we realised how outstanding and well equipped it was, and very well priced too compared to others. Mii is a fantastic host, very friendly, nice and helpful too. We particularly loved the huge deck with its lovely rural and mountain view, also the house is a very short walk to the main road, beach, cafes and other resorts. Super convenient with everything you want and need. Especially good for families and my 10 year old loved it too. Thanks, Mii !
