Very basic Acçommodation, but offers all things to allow you to be self contained for a very pleasant holiday. Kitchen / dining & some have seperate bedroom. Balcony with table and chairs with views over the lagoon to the reef. Kayaks available but need replacing or at least attention to make them buoyant. Just a 5 minute walk along the...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 9 nights. Absolutely stunning location at a great price. Right on Muri beach. We loved using the Kayaks and snorkelling. Everything is pretty basic but it had everything we needed. I highly recommend Tiana's Beach Bungalows!

Location, location, location! Budget accommodation with a million dollar view. Couldn’t have asked for a lovelier spot, at the quiet end of Muri Beach (but only a short stroll from all that Muri Beach has to offer). Ana and Geoff were incredible hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they were friendly and helpful, without being obtrusive. The accommodation is...

The location is magic. I wasn't expecting much as it is a budget villa, but to me it was absolutely perfect for our 5 nights there. While some extra maintenance in the kitchen could improve the functionality, we ate out a lot, including at 5 star resorts as we could afford to with such reasonably priced beach front accommodation. The...

Kia orana Julie-Ann, Many thanks your feedback and I am happy you enjoyed the fabulous beachfront location at Tianas. I't really can't be beat for its location, especially at that price. I will pass on your thoughts to Geoff regarding some kitchen improvements and I appreciate your honesty on this. All the best Ian

We are 7th time visitors to the Cook Islands and have rented privately owned properties prior, so we are not expecting 4 or 5 star accomodation but unfortunately this did not measure up to photos that are on the website. The location is superb and the view from the balcony is to die for but that is about where it...

Thanks for your comments about declining standards of cleanliness during 2013. These have been addressed by Geoff and Ana who took over Tiana's Beach Villas from Geoff's parents in late 2013. The interiors and exteriors have since had a good clean and general maintenance of facilities. We haven't received any negative comments since and whilst Tiana's remains a budget property...

Geat bechfront location, couldn't be better placed, price reasonable, but for everthing else. Kayaks, were looking forward to going kayaking as per the website, but alas no kyaks, when inquired advised to go hire some. Had to clean the shower on arrival, sheets stained, windows that didn't shut, blowing a gale curtains flying around like a flag. Needs a "makeover"...

Thanks your feedback. I'm happy to say that Tiana's has been taken over by Geoff and Ana and the place is looking clean and tidy again and all linen has been replaced. We did have a problem with the kayaks for a few weeks when the local distributor ran out of kayak repair kits (the reality of island life!) and...

The location of this property was fantastic - couldn't ask for better. But the place was very run down and definitely needed a decent clean! The pillows mouldy, the towels old, a broken toaster and a microwave that didn't spin around (resulting in our burnt scrambled eggs)! I was most disappointed that the website offered kayaks for guest use, but...

An awesome little property, perfectly located in Muri beach. It is old and basic, but clean. The shower is great but bring a hair dryer. For the price, I don't think you could find better right on the beach. Would definitely return.
