Muri Beach Hideaway
Ranked #8 of 17 Speciality Lodging in Muri
Reviewed 21 April 2016 via mobile

We stayed in the beachfront bungalow for about a week while on our first visit to the Cook Islands. The bungalow was amazing and the proximity to restaurants and a small shop was great. It also had a little kitchen and the fridge was stocked up with the basics on arrival which was really nice.
We especially enjoyed the view of the lagoon and the kayaks that you could use for free. The bungalow was also kept super clean by the staff.

A special thanks to Vina for her hospitality during our stay!

Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a self-catering accomodation with a great location.

Stayed: September 2015, travelled as a couple

We enjoyed two nights at Muri Beach Hideway.
We had a villa just set back from Muri beach, opposite the pool, in a beautiful garden setting. And, as indicated, it is hidden away. The view over the fence is not great but can be ignored.
The villa was spacious, good lay out with its own kitchenette. The king size bed was comfortable, just right.
Another upside is its location. Everything is within walking distance of the villas; cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. LBV, across the road, does great coffee and breakfast.
The host, Veena, is fantastic. She really made the stay memorable.
Why not 5 stars. Simple and luxurious don't go together. Something is either simple or luxurious.
Muri Beach Hideway is trying to be luxurious and goes some way but the villas are somewhat simple.
Would I stay again? Absolutely.
P.S. if you are a light sleeper, bring your ear plugs to Raratonga. The roosters are up and away from 4 am in the morning.

I stayed here for a week and found it exactly to be what it said it was. Offered free snorkelling and kayaking stuff, free mil and fruit on arrival. Vina was lovely and her whole family including the cat and dog were so friendly! Looks out onto muri beach and has a lovely little pool. Recommend it highly if you are staying in muri. The only pitfall i found(which has nothing to do with the accommodation) was that muri beach is a really unpleasant beach as it is covered in algae and u can't swim there so we used drive down to another beach,p. But this shouldn't stop u staying there! Thanks vina for a lovely holiday.

The owner operator, (and her cat and dog) run this place like a home away from home. Nothing is too much trouble and every little thing is catered for. Impeccable decor and very quiet. Wi Fi reception was a problem though. In our unit very intermittent. If you sat straight outside office better though. The only real negative of our unit was the wind - we went in July and had the second unit back. Faced straight out at the swimming pool. The wind fair whistled straight in on us the whole 10 days we were there. Made it quite unpleasant to sit out on fantastic deck. Is located literally minutes from buses, great shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Maybe chose the front unit, or one of the back ones, as there is shelter from wind

The perfect place to stay in Muri Beach. The bungalows were self contained which allowed us to cook when we didn't feel like leaving the amazing views. Location is perfect, right on the water and minutes away from anything you need. We cannot thank Vina enough for looking after us and making Muri Beach hideaway feel like our home away from home from the second we walked in the door. We cannot wait to come back and visit again soon. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Vina!
