Fantastic villas in a beautiful peaceful setting right on the beach. Would recommend these villas to couples. The owners are fantastic really went the extra mile for us letting us in early after a long flight from USA, was really appreciated. The place is beautiful right on the beach at Muri

Room Tip: Villa nearest to the beach is fantastic -

Just back from a week at Manea Beach Villas with my family - 8 of us from 15 months to 48 years old. Fantastic holiday. Great location and a lovely atmosphere. Clean, tidy, very helpful and friendly staff. Right on Muri Lagoon with great kayaking, swimming and snorkeling ( lots of colourful fish). Adopted by a lovely dog who the kids named 'Goon.' Sonny, the handyman, was very helpful and delivered us a freshly opened coconut while we were sitting by the pool. Arrived late at night so the breakfast supplies were very welcome the next morning. Very close to shops and we really started to feel like locals. Great place for a group or family holiday. No restaraunt or big resort facilities but with a pool, the lagoon, free use of kayaks and snorkeling gear what else do you want? House keeping each day was brilliant and everyone walked around smiling. First time to the islands and we will be going back!

I recently travelled to Rarotonga on a girls trip for the first time and stayed at Manea Beach Villas. After arrival very early in the morning we were met by a friendly and very funny local gentleman who transfered us to our accomodation. We were greeted by a personalized welcome letter from Maryanne (manager of the villa) and her team. In the fridge was a jug of chilled water,complimentary juice,milk,cereals and spreads for toast. This was really appreciated and just what we needed after a long flight and arriving to the heat. The villa was very well appointed and spacious and we even had a bonus lounge area with a tv (which we never turned on) upstairs. The Villas are private and as there are only 7 all together it feels like your the only one there some days which is fantastic. The lagoon and Muri beach are right on your doorstep and reasturants/cafes within walking distance or there is one right on the doorstep - Flametree . The housekeeping staff were all very helpful and friendly and they did and excellent job keeping the villa clean. Maryanne - the manager - is the most wonderful, friendly and helpful person one could ever meet. She arranged our Wednesday night entertainment, shared her local knowledge with us, recommeded places to eat and visit and took care of collection of our rental car from the airport,even reminded us that we needed to be at the airport Saturday evening (not Sunday like we thought) which was very much appreciated. It was sad to leave but I will definately be back for another relaxing trip - for longer next time though. Thanks again Maryanne and Team - you made our visit to Paradise just that much more perfect and welcoming.

Room Tip: Recommend the 3 bedroom villas if there are 2 or more couples or travelling as a family. Upstairs room had aircon.

We stayed at Manea Villas for 10 days after we got married at another location. Fantastic villa, clean and tidy, staff were awesome. Muri beach just a short walk away. Very peaceful. Fantastic to have the pool. Close to heaps of resorts/restaurants where you can go for lunch or dinner.
