Slept 5 of us easily. My mum's 80th. Was very hot upstairs but with aircon and fan it cooled it down. No sea view in the bigger house but a nice small swimming pool and beautiful lagoon.free use of Kayaks and snorkeling gear.staff are amazingly friendly. 2 min walk up the road to Muri shops. Would stay again

What we wanted was a quiet villa on the waterfront at Muri. What we got was a single bedroom villa that was of a standard similar to a low grade cabin you might find in a New Zealand camp ground. We were appalled. The villa was falling apart, badly plastered, poorly painted, with lights either broken or too dim, no curtains in the bathroom, other curtains throughout the villa were dirty, and all fly screens were either poorly fitted or had holes in them. 'Clean' sheets were stained, and when replaced were no better. 'Clean' towels were covered in dirt stains and spots. The TV was one channel only and had rabbit ears pegged to a nearby curtain. The shower was damaged, the bathroom door was disintegrating, the fridge was a rusting hulk, all cutlery and crockery had to be washed before use, and our feet stuck to a tiled floor that had obviously not been washed for some time. Railing around the villa decking was in poor repair and would have collapsed if leant on, giving you a 2m fall to the ground.The villa had an overflowing septic tank beneath it, which stank, as you would expect, and there was no garden of any real description around the villa - immediately to one side was a mound of vegetation being got ready for burning on site, and immediately in front of the villa was a rough wire fence and a view of the next door property's backyard. It has to be said the view from the villa was appalling, and incessant dog barking at night certainly did not make it quiet. When Fern was approached she did nothing about it, saying she'd have things looked at after we left. For the price paid ($298/night) we were shocked at the standard provided and would not recommend this accommodation to anyone.

We booked Manea on Muri at fairly late notice as it was the only family sized accommodation available for our dates. We were a little worried that it might be too ‘budget’ but we really enjoyed our short stay here. Yes it was budget accommodation, but it was spacious, tidy/clean and the beds were super comfy with lovely linen which is always a bonus. Little touches like bedside lamps, mirrors or wardrobes in bedrooms would have been great additions in making this accommodation just that bit more attractive. Wardrobe rails were in the upstairs rooms but not in the downstairs room. However what it lacked in luxury, it certainly made up for with its stunning beach views! The beach here is absolutely beautiful. The water is clear and not as full of coral or sea cucumbers as it is further along the beach where we visited a luxury resort that family were staying at. We didn’t use the swimming pool at all as the beach was just so inviting. Paddle a kayak to the adjacent island or walk across at low tide. Or just sit and watch the water - quite magical. Fern the manager was very helpful via email in answering any questions before our arrival. The office is only open in the morning and as our flight arrived late afternoon, a key was left for us. We had trouble with some lights and the safe not working during our stay, but Fern got these sorted quickly for us. We had the three bedroom villa (No.5) which was great for a family of four. Two upstairs rooms had a double and single bed in each room so could hold more people. The bedroom downstairs has a double bed. There are two bathrooms also. One of the rooms upstairs has air con and all rooms have overhead fans. There was no river view as it was overgrown. This villa was very private and quiet. There were 4 kayaks available for use, two singles and two doubles. If you didn’t bring your own gear, there were snorkels, flippers and reef shoes to borrow which were in the laundry room. Tap water is unsafe to drink on the island. Filtered water is available free of charge next to the laundry so buy a big bottle of water at the convenience store then keep refilling it for free on site. Wifi is via a Bluesky hotspot. Data packs of varying sizes can be bought at local stores. We found this quite unreliable and the data disappeared unbelievably fast even though phones were barely used. There is a convenience store at the end of the driveway which was really well priced. They sold a good selection of fresh bread, milk, fruit, ice creams, cheese, chippies, biscuits, snack food etc. The local island dogs are friendly and you might be lucky enough to have one join you on your kayak! We would happily return to Manea on Muri.
