This was our 4th stay and it gets better every time. The recent update and manicured gardens make this a truly relaxing place to stay. The hosts Steve and Phoebe attention to detail is to be commended. We guarantee you will not be disappointed. Allan & Chris

This place is wel situated for everything in Muri. No mossies, heaps of cool geekos, quiet and homely. S and P are great hosts, friendly and helpful. You get a real country feel to your stay, but are close enough to touristy things. It is actually a nice walk up to the house from the main road. When we come...

We had a week on the top floor unit with gorgeous views across to the lagoon. The room was extremely clean, bed super comfy and the kitchen well equipped. We spent most of our time relaxing on the veranda with a drink. Steve and Phoebe were the perfect hosts and kindly accommodated our son who was able to join us...

This is a wonderful spot for kicking back and relaxing. We had the one bedroom, ground floor unit which opened out on to a large patio area. Great for lounging and enjoying life. There's a TV area, but who goes on holiday to watch TV. It's about a 15 minute walk to the beach and just slightly longer to Muri...

We stayed at Muri Retreat for 6 days during a trip to Rarotonga for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We loved it. We stayed on the top floor. the room was very large, nice and clean, really comfy and had great views over the palm trees to the lagoon. We loved being just up the hill away from the resorts, but...

We stayed here for 4 nights and the owners were very helpful and friendly. The room is clean and big. Also, you can see the big lagoon from the balcony. This place is off the main road a few hundred meters so it is nice and quite. There were plenty of noisy roosters in the morning! But you will get...

This was our third time back to Muri Retreat and we loved it just as much as always. The location is fantastic and so peaceful and wonderful views,the garden is just gorgeous and we love that it is just so private. We have stayed at resorts before but find they can be crowded.

Muri Retreat is a 12 minute stroll in the middle of the day to the village so for us a perfect location. Off the main road and up a slope it has location with peace and quiet (apart from the roosters that are everywhere on the island). We picked a one bedroom as it suited us and were on the...

We stayed with our family for the week and we're able to book all 4 apartments, it worked fantastically to have a couple in each room and have a bathroom and small kitchen to ourselves, close to everything you need but tucked away so you don't hear the road all day like some places, would definitely recommend fir a group...

Our 5th time in Rarotonga and 1st visit to Muri Retreat - we will definately return here again. Steve and Phoebe are the best owners - so helpful and fun to be with. The retreat is small - only 4 units so its very peaceful and our unit was lovely - couldn't want for anything. The gardens are beautiful and...
