Best villas

Posted 17-Sep-2014
Fantastic location in the heart of muri beach. Walking distance to everything!! This property is right on the stunning beachfront. Also has a swimming pool, kayaks & snorkel gear. Wouldn't bother staying anywhere else.

Excellent location and price!

Posted 01-Sep-2014
Pros: Location, price, cleaniness- didn't expect daily service (except Sunday) but it was fabulous!
Cons: The septic tank wafts a bit- not sure if always does this or if it was just becasue our villa (Villa 5) was close to it.
Location: At the heart of Muri- LBV great cafe,down the road is THE BEST fish sandwich place The Mooring Place a must do. Or just enjoy the lagoon!
We had a one bedroom lagoon villa which was perfect for 2 adults and our six year old- (they put a fold out bed in the lounge for her). The location is fabulous- right on Muri lagoon and you can walk around to the 'main strip' of Muri by beach or along the road (2 mins).

Quiet and relaxing

Posted 13-Jul-2014
Pros: Pool and location is fabulous
Cons: n/a
Location: Manea had kayaks, snorkels and reef shoes provided which kept us busy for hours
Lovely quiet spot just around the corner from Muri beach and 2 minute wander from good places to eat. We had a 3 bedroom villa which had everything we needed and a great deck with BBQ. Pool and lagoon were fabulous too. Recommend Manea villa for those wanting a total relaxing holiday.

Laid back stay. Great Views Convenient location

Posted 12-May-2014
Pros: Location, security, friendliness
Cons: It would be handy to have a broom (it does have a dustpan & brush) We ran out of toilet roll and it took a few days to be re-stocked
Location: Rickshaw restaurant for food and cocktails. Lagoon is too shallow for swimming at low tide but a bit further South is great for snorkelling.
Great value for money. The unit was really nice. Just the right size for 2 people. Plus verandah has a view out over the lagoon. As we visited in early May we only needed the aircon a couple of nights. The flyscreens let us sleep with the windows open the rest of the time, plus the well trimmed gardens mean that there are very few mozzies to bother you. No hob, but the electric frypan, microwave and BBQ mean you don't miss it. Also it's pretty reasonable to eat out. The room was made up beautifully every day. Fresh towels and sheets. It was pretty quiet and felt very safe and secure. Being at the end of a cul de sac there's no strangers passing by. Steps have been installed down to the lagoon, so no scrambling over rocks like a previous review mentioned. The pool is small but deep and filled with fresh water. Ideal for a plunge after your snorkel or just to cool off. They have a stock of reef shoes, fins and snorkelling gear you can use.

Quite yet lovely, clean and friendly.

Posted 04-May-2014
Pros: Location was excellent.
Cons: The $40 transfer is a rip off, I'd get a taxi if I landed during the day.
Location: Plenty of restaurants near by. And the any tours you do you are picked up.
Only 1 room is right on the lagoon, 3 others have a reasonable view, be careful you are not stuck close to the lagoon but located in the middle with no breeze (unit no.3). Also units 7 & 8 are spacious but are basically overlooking a swamp. You want units 2,4,5 & 6.

Enjoyed our stay at Manea Beach Villas

Posted 22-Jul-2013
Pros: Nice location, right on the lagoon. Had microwave and BBQ which was great for self catering.
Cons: No cook top or pots / pans for self catering. A plug in cook top would have been nice.
Location: Great, right on beach and easy couple minute stroll to the best sandy beach area
Lovely place to stay. Helpful and friendly staff. We stayed in the 1 bedroom villa with lagoon view. Easy access to all that Muri has to offer. Muri lagoon is truly beaufiful. Villas are very nice, a touch rustic but thats ok, we were not expecting 5 star. Our child loved the wild chickens and friendly dogs that seem to roam everywhere in Raratonga. We did have a crowing rooster that went all any hour of the day / night but that did not worry us or affect our sleep. it really adds gives the whole experience a little bit of a rustic farm style feel right on the beach. The only thing that i would suggest to the owners is to fix the pool. It has a hose going the whole time to keep it full as it has a leak, and is has been this way for years. I would not mind so much other than all the advise in the booklets ect that says to limit your water usage, brush teeth with taps off, conserve water generally!!! Such a massive waste of of the islands precious fresh supply!
