Started with an 8 night booking that we extended to 13 nights. We stayed in unit D which was absolute beachfront on Muri Beach. Ideal location for lazing on the beach, swimming, kayaking (supplied!) and exploring local eateries, the night market, etc. Although we did have some fun cycling trips around the island, (cycles supplied... somewhat retro!) we opted to hire a small car for a period which made wider exploration of good snorkeling spots and other areas of the island possible. Our unit was very comfortable and clean, with upmarket fittings, a well presented kitchen, and idyllic deck. Hosts Eugene and Krystina, as well as their helpful staff made us feel very welcome, our stay extremely enjoyable. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back.

I absolutely loved my time in these beautiful villas. I spent the first 4 nights in the beachfront and 5 nights in the elevated, rear units overlooking the lagoon. The standard of accommodation is excellent, very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom with lots of towels and a great walk in shower. The location is great, right in front of the 3 x islands (motus) with Kayaks to make getting there easy. They have well serviced bicycles to use which are included in the price. The property is directly behind the muri night market, which is a lively and delicious place to attend when it's on. The hosts are excellent and attentive, timely email replies and friendly and warm in person. The cleaner and gardener are also very warm and respectful people. I loved my 9 nights here and you will too.

My Mum and I shared a villa at Muri Shores. The location is perfect and we spent so many hours relaxing on the deck enjoying the view over the lagoon. The villas are modern and impeccably clean with everything you need at hand. The hosts are very friendly and are quick to respond to your needs. I highly recommend these villas for anyone looking for beachfront, self- contained accommodation.

Wow we had the best stay at Muri Shores. What a top location. We booked an absolute beachfront Bure which was perfect. Free bikes & kayaks. Walking distance along the beautiful beach to so many other hotel restaurant bars and other amenities. Awesome snorkelling around the smaller island in front of us. Night markets behind us. Recommend Antipodes restaurant for a sunset dinner. Krystina & her hubbie are superb hosts. Edna’s massage is also a must. Mooring Cafe not too far down the road is also super cool. BYO and take in a bonfire. Tacos are yum. Turtle safari is also recommended. Absolutely love this place. Will definitely return. Thanks again Krystina & team x
