Captain James Retreat
Ranked #2 of 2 Muri B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 June 2011

Just my wife and I stayed here for one week.
The setting is absolutely idyllic,and the house itself is absolutely great and has everything you need for a total chill out break from the rat race of everyday life.
The kayaks are very handy and the snorkelling is out of this world.
There are loads of good restaurants within walking distance, but we found it handy to hire a car for a few days to get about the island.
One thing you must do is go to one of the cultural evenings that many of the local resorts hold every week.
They are worth every penny

This property is set back off the absolute beach front by about 20 metres. The website photos were a good representation. Kids loved the front yard and beach front. There was a kayak and good supplies, eggs butter cereal and milk and a loaf of bread in fridge for our arrival. Modern appliances and cooking equpment, lovely deck and hammocks. Friendly dog called "puppy" and chickens, cats etc... all of which were well behaved and good natured. We felt this place was good value as well.

Spacious rooms with everything I needed - I had heard about Warren's hospitality and I was not disappointed -heaps of room and I was so close to the beach It really was paradise. What a great aspect -Self catering was great - everything real close whatever you needed you could get - even had great sounds and dvds for laxing out at night. Best value for money taking the whole family next time. Thanks alot Captain James for best holiday ever see you next year Mikey F

stayed here with 13 year old daughter and 10 year old son, photos on web page showed one bedroom with 2 single beds, and one with double, arrived at 2am to find both rooms had double beds only, my son had to sleep in the lounge room which had no curtains, none of the beds had blankets. house is not private as it provides access for 2 other houses across the road so we had a contstant stream of people walking thru the back yard, and one morning we got up to find someones child standing in the kitchen! kitchen has fridge with freezer, but you cant put anything in there because its jammed so tight into a corner that you cant get the door fully open to pull out the storage racks. cheap for Rarotonga and i guess you get what you pay for, wont make the same mistake next time.

Loved it, will definitely stay again, the house is in a great location, well set up for all your needs, including a BBQ and a large range of DVD to keep you entertained in the evening as well. The house is modern, spacious and set in a beautiful location. You can't go wrong with this property. great for families as there is a large front garden for the kids to muck around in, and two swings on the beach front trees for them to play on.
