Avana Waterfront Apartments- Apt # 5 - 2 bedroom

 nice relaxed location. a quick stroll to The Moorings for lunch, and a 2 minute drive to Muri Beach for the best swimming on the island. 

LAST MINUTE SPECIAL: $250pn for FEB 2015

 The location is fantastic; beachfront and surprisingly very private and sheltered. There was plenty of outdoor space to entertain and enjoy the spectacular vista out of the sun. Fantastic swimming and snorkelling just steps from your door. Free use of water toys. The property was very clean and presented to a high standard with everything you'd expect and more. Recent addition of air conditioning was a real bonus.

Cooks Beach House-"Laurie Residence"

 We had an amazing stay at the Cooks Beach House-"Laurie Residence", it is wonderfully situated in the muri beach area, being both private and secluded but also close enough to a number of amenities and great restaurants & bars. The view from the property is picture perfect and the house itself is well set up with lots of great indoor and and outdoor areas to enjoy, also loved the use of the sea kayaks & snorkelling gear. We will hopefully be back for another visit soon! 

 Muri Kite Moana - Lagoon Views

 very good spot. walk to the muri beach, shop and restaurant. eddies give us so much information before we go. thanks 

Two x 2 bedroom beachfront villas in Titikaveka

 Property is in a fantastic location, right on the beach and a 10 minute walk to Muri Beach. House was well equipped and very comfortable. But could do with a good clean throughout the property, like under the fridge and back of doors, Aircons needed cleaning also. But overall is a great place to stay. 

LAST MINUTE SPECIAL: $250pn for FEB 2015

 Wow, what can I say. The photos dont do the place justice. Great location - just down the road from Muri. Loved sitting in the hammock looking out into the lagoon, watching the sunset and listening to fish jumping out of the water. All the facilities you need with great hosts and hospitality - nga mihi - many thanks
