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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
