A lovely home with truly amazing views. The photos really don't do justice to how great it is to wake up in the morning to that view. The house itself is located in a nice quite area about 25 minute drive to Noumea via freeway. This house would be best enjoyed if you have a car as public transport is not really an option. Didier was a great host. Very good with communication and really helpful with everything. He even arranged a restaurant booking for us when we arrived late and hungry! His English is excellent to which is quite reassuring.
overall highly (website hidden). There is a supermarket nearby but I recommend driving to the main supermarket on the way to Noumea.
The welcome was spectacular, due to the house and the view being breathtaking. The kitchen was well equiped with complimentry tea, coffee, spices and beer! The space was enourmous, giving privacy to everyone (4 adults and 2 children) The pool and the gardern provided relaxing atmosphere and the great place to do yoga and meditation.
The Dumbea was 20 minuts from the Noumea centre and 25 minutes to the airport. We couldn't ask for a better place and planning to come again, as we couldn't manage to see everything we wanted.
We stayed for a week at this property and Didier kept in touch with us both before and during our stay to ensure our needs were met. The house was beautifully clean and prepared for our arrival with nice touches like shells placed on the towels which added to the 'House by the sea' ambience. Views over the bay and surrounding mountains are spectacular from this amazing property.
We were able to wander down through the immaculately maintained garden to the waters edge and gather cockles from the bay at low tide.The swimming pool has an attractive seating area and loungers.
We visited the excellent Aquarium and the Tjibaou centre with its stunning architecture and interesting history of the region.
The market is typically French with its fresh vegetables,meat and fish.The Baie de Citrons is pretty and clean with safe swimming.
The airport is just 20 minutes away which was very useful for a late arrival and early departure.
Thank you Didier. We had a most enjoyable holiday.
We stay recently for 5 night in this lovely,clean house.The view was just amazing.We did not meet Didier,but a friendly lady was waiting for us with patient on arrival.
We recently stayed at this lovely house, was perfect for us. Lots of room, privacy and the location was perfect. Didier was there to meet us and told us lots of local information a visitor to New Caledonia would not normally get. He was great !
We hired a car and the drive to Noumea only about 20 minutes. We ate very well every day, and stopped at a Supermarket on way home - then a swim in the lovely pool with fantastic views.
Thanks Didier, we will be back !
The house was located in an outer suburb of Noumea. It's quiet but there isn't much to do. It isn't far to drive up to Mid Terre for day trips but if you wanted to eat out for dinner or do day trips to Islands the house is a good 25 minutes to the city centre.
Recently stayed at Didiers residence in Nakutakoin, New Caledonia. The pictures on the website do not do the view justice! Very amazing! Didier was very helpful and friendly, an amazing host! He also speaks and writes very good English which helps a lot. The house is in a great location close to the main highway which means getting to and from Noumea was easy. I would highly recommend staying here.
