“Super location, awesome pool”
Reviewed 29 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We spent 7 fantastic sunny days here. Heaps of room and to wake up each morning and dive into the private pool was brilliant especially after a few drinks the night before. Sat on deck eating breakfast and watching the whales jump on by, they were only one km out and you could see them clearly. We saw them 5 days in a row. We loved the independence of the unit. The local eating places were great with heaps of choices of what to eat. The night market food selection in Muri was very handy. Our group was made up of two couples with heaps of space in the house. There was also a great selection of DVDs and books. A great place to relax and unwind. Totally recommended.

“fantastic muri beach house !”
Reviewed 1 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

we booked this house for 14 nights and did not want to leave! the house sits looking at the muri lagoon with a island in the middle of the lagoon we explored with the kayaks provided. there is a large pool for our own use and a second pool away from the house that the kids also loved.

the owners were great to deal with from the begining and were on hand throughout our stay. everything was within walking distance and we returned our rental car after two days once we stocked up at the supermarket, everything else was right there in muri. we cooked meals on the bbq on the deck that faces the lagoon or walked 5mins to the night market. there is also a conveniance store 100m from the driveway.

we had a couple of wet days so retreated inside and made use of the dvd's and books provided. the bedrooms were very comfortable with large beds and the doors had insect screens so we could leave open. the lagoon was crystal clear and we kayaked or snorkelled daily right off the lawn.

would recommend to anyone and hope to return to paradise real soon !

“Suited us perfectly”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed 12 days at Taakoka and were very happy with our choice. Having a full kitchen meant that we could negotiate meal times easily with our 5 yr old daughter and it also helped keep the cost of our holiday down by not needing to go out for dinner all the time. There is two convenience stores within walking distance and we went into the supermarket in the main town centre to source most of our meat and veg. We ate out a couple of times at local restaurants as well.
A lot of people rent a car for their stay in Raro, but we actually got around just fine via the local bus (and saved quite a bit of $ as a result, plus met some locals).
Was very happy that the photos were a good reflection of what we had booked - the pool and lawn in particular with that gorgeous view of the ocean is exactly as shown. What we didn't realise (and which will prompt a return to CI) is that CI is surrounded by a lagoon and hence the waves break about 100m off shore - so the beach is lovely and calm with no crashing waves. It was absolutely perfect for our 5 yr old as it gave her a chance to explore safely. The beaches and indeed all of CI is very very clean too - fantastic compared to other south pacific islands we've been to.
Weather was good - we had a couple of days where it was a bit rainy/windy but it was never cold (25-28deg during the day and around 20 overnight).
And to top it all off, there are wild chickens roaming about - so no need for an alarm clock as the local roosters take care of that :)
Would happily return to Taakoka

“Paradise!”
Reviewed 19 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have staid for three weeks in this beautiful house with our two young kids and loved every minute of it!
The house is big, and comfortable: soft beds, two bathrooms, well equiped kitchen including dishwasser, big freezer etc, lots of fans,etc
The view from the deck is marvellous and the beach begins at the end of your garden. There are kayaks to use and adam and sarah are very friendly and helpful. The garden is well maintained and the gardener would comeand bring fresh coconuts or passionfruit.
Muri beach and takoka ville are definitely the place to be on rarotonga!
