Taakoka Muri Beach Villa - set on the most sought after 'Muri Golden Mile' you don't want to stay anywhere else! 50m from the main road set on 3/4 acre of landscaped grounds ending on the famous Muri Beach - no roads to cross! Taakoka Muri Beach Villa is a Air NZ Cook Islands Tourism Awards 'supreme winner' best private accommodation. 30+ Guest Reviews 'EXCELLENT' - on this site alone , there are many many more out there , all recent. what you see is what you get..

Use the complimentary kayaks & Paddle Boards to paddle around Muri lagoon or snorkel around stunning Taakoka island which is directly in front of the house or stroll off the lawn on to the white sand less than 5 minutes to the famous MURI beach, restaurants and cafes and night market. The house is two level with mezzanine floor and two bedrooms, both with Air Con and bathrooms with a modern beach and island feel and is styled to a premium standard with full kitchen, outside dining, BBQ and sun loungers -don't forget the large lagoon facing salt water pool for your sole use during your stay! Taakoka Villa is renowned as being in one of the most sought after locations - known by locals as the Muri Golden Mile. With Muri becoming so popular it has in recent years filled with resorts, this is one of the last beach front settings that is still non resort and we have worked hard to create a real island life experience and atmosphere that our guests love! Every year we host more and more guests who have visited previously and return to Muri as it really is the capital of the island, many dont need a vehicle for the entire stay as so much is walking distance from the house including the now famous Muri Night Market just a 5 minute walk.

About the neighbourhood
*Set on over ¾ acre of private landscaped lawn and garden starting at the end of the long driveway off the main road and finishing right on the golden sand of Muri Beach but away from the resorts and crowds *your Beach House has its own private beach access to the ‘Golden Mile’ of Muri Beach and the amazing lagoon *use the complimentary kayaks to paddle around the island of Taakoka which is directly in front of your beach! *bring your own food and cook it on the BBQ on your private lagoon facing deck or relax in your own sun loungers *our guests comment on the how luxurious and well presented this house is as well as the privacy, absolute beach front location and close proximity to all that Muri offers !
Getting around
The property is walking distance to EVERYTHING in Muri including the famous Muri Night Market, all the delis's , cafes and restaurants, resorts and day trips and activities yet the house is 50m off the road so when you've had enough action for the delay you can retire to the house and deck and soak up the lagoon view Many guests return their rental car after a few days as they realise they dont need it as its sitting parked whilst they are busy in our lagoon and beach !
