great location in muri

Posted Mar 11, 2018
This place is really nice, people are great and the facilities top rate. The only reason for a 4 not 5 is that it is small and if it is full than you are vulnerable to the antics of your neighbours. We had 2 nights of the 3 we stayed here with only one other couple and the place was wonderful. The 3rd we had a group of 10 mates arrive keen to party which was fun to watch for one night but would have frayed a little if we had stayed on. The good news though is the rooms are very quiet even when it is going off round the pool! If you want privacy seek an upstairs room. If you want direct access to the pool go downstairs.

Luxury in the perfect location

Posted Jan 2, 2018
Pros: The villas are so well equipped and no little children made it perfect
Cons: Clean the floors in the ensuites more frequently
Location: Night markets, boat trips, SUP, cycle hire, dairy at the end of the driveway
If you like small, private holidays with all of your home from home comforts (possibly with a little luxury thrown in too) then Te Vakaroa Villas is perfect. Conveniently located for the night markets, boat trips and cycle hire you can be as active or as inactive as you want Nick and Poko have it covered

Great location and spacious

Posted Nov 2, 2017
Pros: There was enough space for everyone and a great balcony to sit out and enjoy breakfast and those occasional rainy days.
We needed accommodation that would suit 4 adults sharing and this 2 bedroom villa was perfect.

Beautiful apartments in a lovely setting.

Posted May 31, 2017
Pros: From the driver who transported us from the airport and Poko in the office and then to the very attractive and roomy apartment ... we were thrilled.
Cons: The jaccuzzi could have been hotter.
Location: The location was beautiful and the views wonderful. Right in the middle of everything at Muri Beach. Restaurants and lagoon cruises right there.
We loved everything about this place. It had everything that we needed and was clean and very comfortable beds. The gardens were gorgeous and the infinity pool was great.

We enjoyed a very relaxing and peaceful stay. Private and secluded, yet right on Muri beach.

Perfect location right on the beach.

Posted Jul 12, 2016
Pros: Only six villas in a perfect location.
If you are planning a vacation in the Cook Islands this is the place to be, right on the beach in beautiful Muri lagoon. Our villa was well equipped and spotlessly clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Even though we rented a car in advance we were met at the airport, helped with our luggage and guided to the villa. There is plenty of entertainment and good restaurants in easy walking distance. All in all a perfect Cook Island experience.

Awesome Locations. Wicked Pool!

Posted Jul 12, 2016
We just spent 4 nights here on our mini break. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had a 1 bedroom villa and it was beautiful. We were underneath a 2 bedroom villa and we could here the people above us walking around so if you are a light sleeper it may pay to pack some ear plugs just incase. I was worried about the pool being really cold after reading the reviews but it was beautiful. It is cold but perfect on a hot sunny day to cool off. The spa pool was great and nice to relax in while the sun goes down. Breakfast was nice and light. It was perfect for the 2 of us to have a mid winter break and would highly recommend.
