Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week based at this property run by Scott and Rose. Easy walking to the best that Muri has to offer, beaches, restaurants and bars. The property is meticulously maintained, the villas are spacious and have everything you need for a group getaway. Great decks out front with a large bbq make entertaining in the afternoons a breeze. Kayaks and Bikes available for use by guests which is great. We would highly recommend Muri Vista Villas to anyone looking for a non resort stay, self catering here is simple and for us made the whole holiday a lot more relaxing.

We could not have been happier with our choice in accommodation. Absolutely stunning views, well maintained property, awesome pool, and within walking distance to Muri Beach, Village & Night Food Market. Scott and Rose have thought of everything that you could possibly want from your accommodation (kayaks, pool, bikes, paddle boards, trampoline, husking station, coffee machine, dvd player for the kids, etc etc). We have previously stayed in Rarotonga in an expensive Muri Beachfront luxury cottage and rate the Muri Vista Villa's higher. We absolutely love Rarotonga, and will definitely be booking our next holiday at Muri Vista Villa's.

What a stunning property! Best location on the island, with the beach straight across the road, close to Muri shops, night markets and activities such as Koka lagoon cruise and Te varanui.. We loved the homely feel of these villas, very clean, comfy beds, beautiful big decks, with bbq. We rented all 3 villas for 3 families total of 14 people. 2 villas could of housed us but we chose to have complete privacy with all 3. They could easily accommodate 24 people. Villa 1 has more privacy for those wanting it away from the pool, villas 2 and 3 could suit 2 families holidaying together, villa 3 is behind the pool. The owners are a delight and take such pride in their property maintaining it daily. 2 bedrooms downstairs and 1 main bedroom plus a mezzanine upstairs. Insect screens on the windows plus Ceiling fans throughout with aircon in the main bedroom upstairs if you need it. These villas are such good value with free use of the swimming pool, x6 kayaks, paddle boards, mountain bikes, a trampoline and more. So many unexpected things were provided such as a first aid kit, washing powder, insect repellent, coils, tea, coffee, milk, bread and spreads, baking paper, plastic wrap, foil and even cooking oil! Waking up to the beautiful views is magical, you will not be disappointed!

Where do I even start? Rarotonga stole a little piece of my heart, and we will definitely be back and rebooking with Muri Vista Villas! We stayed in cabin 3 for a week at the very end of May beginning of June. We were so impressed with how well Scott & Rose took care of, and daily maintain their Villas. You can see the pride in ownership everywhere you look. The villas, and grounds are kept very clean. They have so many things for you to do or barrow free of charge swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, bikes, a trampoline, picking fresh fruit. We had such a wonderful time with our family, and we can’t wait to visit again!

We have just had a great week’s stay at Muri Vista Villas. We rented villas two and three with friends and really enjoyed our stay. The villas are within walking distance of Muri and come complete with kayaks and bikes to use. They are spacious and well appointed with everything you need, including air con in the main bedrooms. We rented cars to get around the island more generally and would recommend this or scooters for any trip to Rarotonga as it is good to get around the island. The owners are fastidious in the work they put into keeping the gardens and grounds beautiful, neat and tidy. The villas also come complete with wonderful views. Many thanks!

Yes, it's all true. This is a dream place. Maybe not luxurious but this is reflected in the price. We had all we needed and more. The location is very good as it's walkable to the night Muri market and to the most gorgeous beach your mind can imagine. The owners are kind and accommodating and we were really very sad to leave. I just wished Rarotonga was nearer to Europe! :-(

This Villa is perfect for a family or large group of friends, we stayed in villa 2. Our boys aged 8,9,12 all spent hours in the long pool( that is shared by the 3 villas) . This place has everything you need from kayaks, paddle board, mountain bikes, pool and trampoline. House is spacious ( sleeps 8) with 2 bathrooms. Loved relaxing in swing chair on deck while still able to watch kids in pool. It is in Muri - so able to walk across road and straight into lagoon . Close enough to shops and Muri night market. We did hire a car so we could get around the island. Definitely be back. Thanks to Hosts Rose and Scott.

Rarotonga is such a small island I think anyway you stay could be considered a perfect location but if close to the popular Muri beach is where you are wanting to stay yet still enough away to be away from the hustle then this is your spot. My family and I enjoyed our stay here over Christmas. They had everything we could require. from relaxing in the hammock to by the pool to the air con in the main bedroom. We loved it.

stayed here for a week with my mother and grandmother in the central unit and could not have of asked for more. As long as you accept island life means you are going to be getting up close with nature on the regular you will have very little to fault about the Villas. Unit was clean and set up with basics for our arrival, owners were on site every day to keep the property maintained and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. The villa itself had more then enough space for the 3 of us (3 beds and a sofa bed left over) and double balconies were perfect, to chill out on at all hours. The neighbors were great and even though they are quite close you never felt like you were giving up your privacy. location wise you have a view of the muri islands smack bang in front of your face all the time, its a short walk across the road and the supplied kayaks mean you can do what you like when you like. Its a 15 minute walk to the night markets that run 4 or 5 nights a week, this is about the same distance as a bunch of cafes and grocery stores which will be your main source of life. The only draw back is that driveway is a bit of a nightmare especially if you are on foot, scooter or trying to wheel a kayak up or down. Its doable but both myself and grandmother bailed on the loose gravel and uneven surface so just a heads up. would 100% stay again.
