Highly recommended! We just spent a wonderful week at Rendezvous Villas on our second trip to the beautiful Cook Islands. Great accommodation (fully equipped with all your needs), absolute beachfront, stunning lagoon views from every angle including your own private verandah, king bed, loungeroom, and only 10-15 minute walk from the heart of Muri village. Our host Chad was fabulous; helpful, friendly, relaxed and funny, never intrusive but always available. Rendezvous specifies no children under 12 but we visited at the start of low season (early Nov) and they allowed us to stay with our 4-year-old, who also had a great week. The Cooks are all about down time, and this place was great for that. We'd certainly recommend it for couples. Only a few steps to the water's edge, where you can fossick amongst the rocks looking for hermit crabs of all sizes, or splash about amongst the tropical fish. The only downside of this spot, like many other parts of the lagoon coastline, is that the water is full of coral and rocks - if you want perfect sandy beach that's more ideal for swimming and snorkelling, then stay a bit further west along the lagoon up near the Little Polynesian and Titikaveka Beach (about 10-15 min walk further on from Muri - we stayed at the Little Poly last year and it was brilliant). But it's only a short walk along the beach from Rendezvous Villas until you get to a clearer bit of water and the views are great anywhere along the lagoon. They also have canoes at the villas which provide another fun way to move about the lagoon. Loved it and would happily stay there again.
