Muri is one of the most popular destinations in the Cook Islands. It is centrally located to almost everything in Rarotonga, and offers a wide variety of activities and tourist attractions, as well as restaurants and cafes.
The public bus travels around the island on the hour between 8am - 11pm Monday to Friday, and every 30 minutes on the weekends. It is easily accessible - to catch it just wave it down on the side of the road and it will stop!

I really enjoyed staying at the Muri studio. It was actually more spacious than I was expecting, and I liked the fact that the cafes, restaurants and lagoon at Muri were right on my doorstep. Recommended and also really good value for such a good location.
We didn't meet Sian but we really enjoy our stay.
The studio was exactly like a description and the photos...we definitely fallen in love for the position and the details!!!
Thanks Sian and see you!
Great studio in Muri. Safe ad great location and had all the necessities. Absolutely no complaints and I would definately stay here again next time. Thanks Sian!
Tracy & Sian made us feel very welcome
Defiantly would stay again
We were fortunate to have Sian meet us at the Studio. It was just as we expected - clean and tidy, with everything we needed.
It was very easy to take a taxi from the airport to the Studio.
It's in a great location, very close to cafes and shops. We counted 105 paces to the Deli licious cafe where we had a great breakfast. There is plenty to do in the Muri area (relaxing is easiest!) and we happily spent a couple of days there before hiring a scooter and heading into Avarua.
Tracey came to meet us and check that we had all we needed. She was great to chat to with her local knowledge.
We would love to return to stay in the Studio, and of course, next time, stay for longer. We thoroughly recommend :)
My friend and I had a great time staying at Sian's place. Sian was away during our arrival but had arranged for a friendly property caretaker to greet us and show around. It was a great area to stay in because of its quick access to the beautiful Muri beach and within a quick walking distance to the markets, eateries and the LBV coffee shop.
Little nice studio directly in the centre of Muri Beach - everything (shops, restaurants,etc) is within 5-15min walking distance! Coffee shops for breakfast are just next door. We rented some bikes and bikes around the island - some good fun and very easy!
The studio was nice and clean and had almost everything - just providing some umbrellas would be good!
About the Host, Sian
I'm sociable, friendly, and easy going. I love to travel, and on the weekends like to relax with maybe a nice glass of wine, good food and great company. Asia is my favorite destination and Thai food would be my first choice for a meal. Raised in NZ I'm also from the Cook Islands where I call home.
