  • First and incredible experience. I'm so glad I try Airbnb . Not only the price but also we travel like visit a friend. I travel with my daughter only . I was worry about the safety. But after read 98 positive comments. I choose Pierre as my first Airbnb host. His good communication and organization. I have a hassle free short stay. It was a shame we only stay one night. Pierre pre booked lovely Tina the Taxi driver pick up us from Airport. And await for us arrival his beautiful and modern apartment. Sorry for the late flight. He kindly showed our the room and facilities. And also help us organize Taxi to ferry. Definitely I'll share my wonderful experience to my friends and family . Hope we can meet sometime in NZ shortly. 第一使用Airbnb ,总担心自己一个人带女儿住陌生人家不安全。前后看了n多家,最后锁定Pierre , 98条满满正能量的评价。 从预定到成行,Pierre一直都是很及时积极回邮件。可怜我们只住一晚,而且是晩上十点多飞机。他一直等我们到,还一一介绍房间和设施。他的复式现代公寓在山顶,可以鸟㒈PPT中心景和无敌海景。主人套间干净整洁。他有一只狗,但佷听话。 非常感谢Pierre 让我有了这次很愉快的经历。下次一定一定还住他家。

  • All I can say is Wow! We had an amazing experience staying with Pierre! I can't recommend him enough. We were picked up by a taxi driver that Pierre arranged for us from the airport. Pierre's place is very nice. The bedroom has a king bed, large bathroom and shower, and it's own deck with a spectacular view of Papeete. The apartment complex even has an infinity pool overlooking the city as well. Pierre also has a scooter for rent which is a great way to get around Tahiti and even take for a day trip to Teahupoo or Moorea. We would definitely recommend them both! Pierre is very welcoming and made us feel right at home. He made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. He provided us with excellent recommendations on what to do and see during our time in Tahiti. It wouldn't have been the same without him. Make sure to stop by his food truck for a meal or two as well. The food was excellent. We are so glad we stayed with Pierre. He made our time in Tahiti above and beyond what we expected. Thanks again Pierre!!

  • My husband and I loved our stay in Pierre's apartment! It is our very first time staying in the same apartment as the host. Pierre was fantastic. He is super sweet and genuine. The apartment was spacious and clean. It is everything described and more. Also, Pierre's dog is so cute and friendly. I highly recommend!

  • Pierre was a very nice and thoughtful host. He arranged for the lovely Tina pick me up in a taxi and take me to his flat. He offered me to rent a scooter and introduced me to his friendly dog, who I loved. The room was very comfortable and had everything I needed. Pierre invited me to come to his food truck for dinner and the meal I had was extremely delicious. I also met his friends there and had a very good time.

  • Pierre is such a great host. He was going to meet us at Avis (11 pm), and we would follow him to his apartment. But there was no reservation or car. Pierre negotiated a free ride to his home and a pickup the next morning to get a car. The agent did not speak English, and our French is very limited, so he saved the day. He also called Avis the next morning to make sure they carried through. His English is very good, and he goes out of his way to make guests comfortable. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. We made a quick breakfast in his kitchen. The balcony has nice views, and a place to hang wet laundry.

  • Nice guy, nice place! The room is nice and the view from the hill amazing. Pier also arranged pick up from and to the airport. Recommended!

  • This is our second stay with Pierre and everything was great. Pierre organized Tina Taxi to pick us up at the ferry (approx. $26) and he let us leave our bags in his place in advance of check-in which was appreciated. We used Pierre's scooter to explore Papetee and lounged by the infinity pool. We also had a dinner at Pierre's food truck which was excellent and you should try it. If you are looking for a nice, clean, modern space in Papetee with a host that will go above and beyond to help his guests, look no further. You won't be disappointed. The place is located 10 minutes from the airport and 10-15 minutes from the town center. It is on hill so you get beautiful views of Papetee from your private balcony. Pierre provides free wifi and created very helpful handbook in multiple languages with house rules, tourist activities and directions to town. Overall, this place was better than a hotel. We were well taken care off by Pierre and left with a feeling that we made a friend in Tahiti. Great AirBnB experience.

  • The views are amazing and so is the pool. Pierre was so helpful and you must eat at this food truck. Yum!

  • Amandine and Sebastian are gracious, accommodating and friendly hosts from beginning to end. They had lots of good recommendation and helpful tips on shopping and touring Tahiti and Moorea. English communication was easy because Amandine is bilingual and speaks English. The room was large, with strong air conditioning and large bathroom. There were no closets or safe but plenty of storage in the large dresser. We would highly recommend this property to anyone but you will need a car as they are situated high on the hill in a residencial neighborhood overlooking Moorea with beautiful sunsets in the evening. They are very close to the airport, downtown Papeete and the French Walmart Caffour at the bottom of the hill. Ray and Arlene, Vancouver BC Canada

  • Amandine and Sebastian's home is modern, clean and has a stunning view of Moorea and the harbour. It's peaceful location, aircon, pool and large communal area provide an oasis from the busy city for the weary traveller. A car and the confidence to drive it are a must as it is tricky to get to. Lovely, friendly hosts.

  • Amandine and Sebastian’s place is lovely and their hospitality is unforgettable. They provided us plenty of tips to get around the island. The view from their place is admiring. We absolutely loved our stay and would not hesitate to come back again. Thank you for everything.

  • The view from the deck is breathtaking beautiful. Wonderful hosts that were so helpful and kind. I would highly recommend a stay. Ray

  • Beautiful location and wonderful and friendly hosts. Would definitely stay here again.

  • I really liked the hospitality of the owners. They do their best to ensure that their guests have a pleasant stay. We had a restful and relaxing stay at this property. Sebastian and Amandine were wonderful hosts and everything is as described in the listing. Helpful in giving recommendations and highlights of Papeete. Their home is immaculately clean, nice and roomy air conditioned bedroom, a relaxing patio that offers wonderful view of Moorea. What can I say but Great Place to stay in Papeete!

  • I had a wonderful stay with Amandine and Seb. The room was very nice with an en suite bathroom and the view from the terrace is stunning! Amandine and Seb have been great hosts, meeting us at the airport at 11pm to make sure that we will find the way with our rental car and providing lots of helpful recommendations for our stay on Tahiti! Thanks again for everything!

  • Great private space! Not far from everything you need. Amandine communicates well before and during your trip. Renting a car is a must and I would suggest setting this up beforehand.

    Punaauia, Îles du Vent, French Polynesia

    Comfortable detached bungalow located in a lush valley of Moorea at the foot of the Mou'a puta. Close to a beautiful waterfall. Away from the tourist spots, in a neighborhood of an authentic Polynesia. Be motorized strongly advised.
    Breakfast included in the rental price. A mezzanine with 1 double bed can accommodate 2 additional persons for 8 € / pers. In addition (the price of breakfast). Arrivals from 3pm (earlier if free before you) Departures at 11am (later if no one takes the accommodation after you. No kitchen but the bungalow is equipped with a microwave, a fridge, a kettle and crockery. A food truck at 300m ideal to go for your meals (meals good, copious and cheap).
    Popular (but quiet) neighborhood of an authentic Polynesia. The path of our valley (650m.) Is not a paved road but carossable, the 4/4 is not obligatory. A pizzeria at 800m, a caravan with takeaway to 300m. The biggest supermarket is at 5kms and the big beach of Temae at 10kms.
  • Paradise does exist and you can find it when you decide to stay with Anne-Françoise and her husband Serge. It all started with the good communication prior to our stay. Anne-Françoise helped us out with the ferry details, which was very helpful. We were welcomed at the harbour with a flower necklace :-) It was only a short drive to the AMAZING bungalow, which Anne-Françoise and her husband build themselves. The way it is situated is wonderful, in the center of the garden with flowers everywhere, close to the jungle (and a beautiful waterfall) and overlooking the ocean in the distance. The Lagoonarium (a must go when you are on Moorea) is only a 10 minute bike ride. The nearest beach is 10 km from the bungalow. Bicycles are available during your stay and there is a possibility to rent the pick up from Anne-Françoise and Serge. As said, the typical Polynesian bungalow was built by Anne-Françoise and her husband and you can tell they payed attention to the smallest detail. The bungalow has everything you need and was very clean. Breakfast is included with the price and believe me, you won't be disappointed! Fresh fruit from the garden, homemade jams, fresh bread, pancakes or other homemade pastries, cheese... I want to go back!!! Ann en Serge have a dog Icky and a cat Kiwi, both amazingly friendly animals. If you get the chance, take Icky to the waterfall. He will lead the way :-) Ann and Serge dropped us off at the ferry when our week on Moorea was over. We were sad that we had to leave. Don't have second thoughts of staying here if you get the chance. We have been travelling for a longer period of time and we enjoyed our stay here the most. Like mentioned before, it felt like paradise on earth.

  • Our stay at Serge and Anne Francoise's bungalow was excellent. The house is beautiful, clean and within a superb environment. The views were also a great extra. Serge and Anne Francoise were great hosts too, providing a nice balance between privacy and being able to help at a moment's notice. We were also served great breakfast every morning. Highly recommended.

  • Anne-Francoise and Serge have been the perfect hosts. We stayed at their lovely bungalow for 3 weeks and during that time they have been super helpful and welcoming from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. They welcomed us with flower necklaces and fresh coconut water, they made sure we had everything we needed for our stay, they gave us tips on where to eat, letting us use their mobile phone to make some local calls, even showing us how to make coconut milk ;) They also provided us with a huge breakfast with fresh homemade jams, pastries and fruits from the garden. We really felt like home and we couldn't be more happy with our choice to stay there. Anne Françoise and Serge are amazing people and we will come back to visit them the next time we stay in Moorea :) Anne Francois et Serge ont été de super hôtes. Nous sommes restés 3 semaines dans leur parfait bungalow et pendant tout notre séjour ils ont été très acceuillant et attentionnés. Ils nous ont acceuilli avec des colliers de fleurs et de l'eau de coco fraiche, ils nous ont conseillés où manger, ils nous ont prétés leur telephone pour pouvoir passer des appels locaux, ils nous ont meme fait une demonstration sur comment faire le lait de coco ;) Ils nous ont apporter un énorme petit déjeuner tout les matins, composé entre autre de confitures maison et de fruits frais du jardin. On s'est vraiment senti comme à la maison et on ne pouvait pas être plus satisfait de notre sejour. Anne Françoise et Serge sont vraiment de super hôtes et on reviendra pour sûre, la prochaine fois que nous sommes à Moorea ! :)

  • Anne and Serge are a really sweet and amazing couple! We really enjoyed their hospitality. Arrival: Anne and Serge picked us up from the hotel we were staying at and after hearing that we hadn't seen the rest of the island yet, drove us the long way to their house so we could see the entire island of Moorea. They also took us up to Belvedere lookout. Even though it was rainy and we couldn't see much of the view, we loved the experience! Following that, they took us to the supermarket to pick up some provisions for the night. Just this alone made us feel very welcomed. Location: The cottage is located wonderfully at the foot of a lush green mountain. You have a partial view of the ocean from the balcony. I noticed that it was within walking distance to a pizzeria and the ocean. It's also only about a mile hike to a beautiful waterfall. Just get back on the road from the cottage and turn left and keep going until you hit the waterfall. Cottage and its Amenities: The cottage was adorable and well built. There is a small kitchenette with water heater, microwave, and mini fridge for us to heat up the snacks we'd purchased at the supermarket. The bed was decently comfortable - there are a lot of mosquito though (there is an opening near the ceiling) so be sure to bring bug repellent! There is wifi provided, but the signal was pretty weak most of the time - I didn't mind though as it was our last night in paradise and I just sat back and enjoyed the quiet. Serge and Anne also provided a wonderful breakfast the next morning, and also took us to the ferry dock. We are super grateful for their warm hospitality and would consider staying there again. Thank you again, Serge and Anne!

  • Our trip to Moorea at Anne-Francoise's place couldn't have been better. My wife and I arrived on the island on a public holiday without any local currency. All the banks were closed, no restaurants were open etc. Anne-Francoise helped us settle down on our first day by exchanging currency for us and by lending us their car (with a very small rental fee). Their hospitality has been excellent throughout the whole stay!! The bungalow itself is very pretty located in a local neighborhood. It is not big in size but spacious enough for two. The breakfast is fantastic, enough to feed a family of four. The local food truck is great also! I can't really think of anything negative about this place. If you are traveling to Moorea, and you don't want to be in big resorts, you should definitely try Anne-Francoise's place.

  • Anne and Sarge were the loveliest hosts ever. They were ready for us at the airport and greeted us with warm smiles all the time. The Polynesian bungalow was authentic and lovely. Breakfast was superb, much better than we expected, especially that banana coconut jam and fresh home grown fruits! Do try to sleep early as the chickens will wake you up as early as 4 am, and there is no AC, but that's part of the unforgettable experience ;) car rental from the hosts was available, much cheaper than local car rentals and made the whole trip so much better. I'd can't recommend this awesome airbnb listing highly enough! You'll love it :)

  • Wonderful stay! The bungalow is really nice and the hosts were friendly. Amazing breakfast!!!! You won't get disappointed.

  • The house is in a quiet neighborhood except for roosters which appear to be all over the island. It is perfect as a quiet hide away. The waterfalls are close by as is the lagoonarium. If going to the lagoonarium get there when they first open if you want a cabana. You may want to rent a car if you wish to see more if the island.

    AFAREAITU, MOOREA, French Polynesia

    Studio fully equiped, AirCond, your own kitchen, OPEN AIR bathroon, private entrance. This studio is a relaxing space, joint next to our main house, connected by a covered deck lounge which both gives to an infinity pool, ocean view.
    It is the perfect guestroom where everyone should be welcomed: not being too far from the hosts and well designed to be totally independent. High-speed INTERNET WIFI is available.
    Our house is situated in a private and secured residential area, at 450m altitude (800ft) on the Papeete's hills, less than 10 minutes away from the airport and the heart of Papeete. Well located on a hills, at the foot of the forest and hiking trails. Much more quieter and cooler than downtown, especially you will appreciate by night this freshness of the mountain.
  • Amazing fully equipped Air-Cond studio with shared access to hosts' pool and deck. Studio has a separate entrance but is attached to their house. Their house is in a gated community HIGH up an often steep and winding road with little traffic. A car is necessary. The hosts are exceptionally friendly and enjoy meeting their guests. Highly recommended.

  • The best place to stay in Tahiti. It a wonderful place in the top of a mountain with an unique view. The accommodation is perfect and the hosts are amazing, help you in everything you need. A recommendation is to rent a car, is our second time here, and the first was without car and you can move with taxi, but with a car you are really close to everything. Recommend Eco car, is a half price agency close to the airport. You will enjoy for certain!!

  • Yans place is awesome! Love the privacy and the hosts are ever so gracious and helpful! I wpuld highly recommend this property to someone who's needing a getaway. No public transport so you will need a car to get around.

  • Staying at Yan's place was fantastic and absolutely lovely! The room and shared space are just as pictured, and the view was stunning. The home is only 15 minutes from the airport and down town Papeete. I would suggest having a rental vehicle as the home is high in the hills (which is why it has such stunning views). The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely not hesitate to stay there again and highly recommend you to stay at Yan's place if you are visiting Tahiti

  • The best host in the world! If I had to describe my ideal airbnb this wonderful family would have been far beyond my wishes. They came to pick me up at the airport greeting me with a fresh flower lei. The entire experience was just fabulous, from the kindness and genuine love I received to the mesmerizing view, delicious food offered and gorgeous home. Its location is about 10 minutes form the heart of Papeete, nested in th hills which is ideal for hiking. The villa was recently tastefully build. I found it extremely cleaned, organized, beautiful, relaxing and quite. I feel extremely grateful to have found this family, they made my whole trip memorable! I only hope they come to my home one day so I can start to give back in my own way.

  • Yan was so welcoming and helpful! The place is absolutely wonderful with such a stunning view. Would highly recommend staying here!

  • Stunning designer house with an amazing view over the Papeete and the bay. Lovely hosts and cute little dog. The private studio had all the amenities you need and more!!!

  • Great place from a very kind family. Attention to details. The cold beer at arrival after a long flight was just the perfect welcome ! Nice studio at a beautiful house in a quiet area close to the airport and city (10 min drive).

  • Convenient to airport (as stated in the description), but moreover the hosts were incredibly helpful and gracious. The place was small, but very modern, clean and cozy. The wifi was great. We stayed one night before heading to another island and Vaekehu and family went out of their way to take care of us.

  • Second stay. thanks again. especially for lifts to town!

  • Vaekehu's place is very convenient for the airport. Our flight arrived in very early in the morning and although we could not check in until 2 pm, Vaekehu arranged for our luggage to be picked up so that we could go and browse around Papeete luggage free. The bus to town is an easy way to get around. The accommodation was great - all new and efficient. Overall, it was a very good stay.

  • Very nice owner. She drove me everywhere and we even had dinner together.

  • Hina was an incredible host. The place is close to the airport. With Pick up from airport and back provided makes it a perfect location for a pre-flight stay. Hina was so kind as to wake up at 4 am to take me to the airport. The bungalow is very comfortable and modernly furnished, it all looks brand new, with a perfect small kitchen, coffee and tea provided, bathroom very clean, a small table on the terrace, and the shower was just perfect. In hotel standards, it's definitely a 4* hotel accommodation. I only stayed a night but would definitely stay longer next time.

  • Super sweet hosts with a very clean and newly built bungalow. Very close to the airport but still quite secluded. Lovely place to stay when your flight out is at some ungodly hour.

  • Vaekehu was a superb host. She went the extra mile and further. Collecting us at 11pm from the airport, dropping us off early at the ferry on a Sunday am. ALL WITH A BEAUTIFUL SMILE. Her place, clean, neat and perfect for the night we arrived after long lights.

  • My stay at Vaekehu's place was great!! She wasn't there to pick me up but her mother did. She also went out of her way to get me for a small fee. The bungalow was perfect for myself. However, it would fit two people with ease. Everything was clean and nice for me when I arrived. It's a great place to stay if you are just passing through or even for a longer visit. I will definitely be booking here again next time !

  • Chris was very nice and helpful during our stay. His house has got a beautiful view to the ocean from the hill.

  • Amazing place with a perfect view towards Moorea, but you will need a rental car to stay here since it is located away from the city area. Chris was very welcoming even though we arrived after midnight. We had a really nice stay in this very nice apartment and will definitely recommend this to other travelers. Kr Jesper & Karoline

  • Perfect. Great location, clean, and ideal for Papeete touring. Chris was professional, helpful, and valued privacy. Excellent expierence. Rental car is a must, store maps before you arrive on your mobile device, and run the Pinapo Raid 20k on Moorea. Chris will explain; it will change your life.

  • Chris is a very nice guy and a great host. We really enjoyed the time. The Appartement is nice and clean with a fantastic view. The animals are very Kind and dont disturbe. it was a great experience Thanks Chris He give as a lot of Information what make our trip much easier

  • Upon arriving in Tahiti, we were tired, a bit lost, but most of all excited to begin an island vacation. Chris was extremely accommodating from the time of booking to our early morning arrival and came out to the end of the driveway to greet us. His driveway is a bit steep (understatement) and he offered to show us how to manage it for the first time. The apartment was spacious and spotless, offering amenities one would hope for in a place away from home. The kitchen was well equipped with a fridge, hot plate, cookware, kettle, and utensils. The living area has glass sliding doors that open to the pool (!) and allow for a ton of natural light to beam in all day. There was also a comfy futon that could easily sleep 1-2, for us to enjoy the view from. The view, by the way, was and is AMAZING. The bedroom was very clean and minimalistic which was great considering the heat. The bed was comfortable and all windows had screens to allow for fresh air during the night. The bathroom had a huge shower (no tub) and sink, plus toilet of course. It was well lit and super clean as well. He provided us with towels and even left a few Tahitian toiletries for us to use. Chris helped to show us the apartment when we arrived and answered any questions we had right away. He responded immediately when we texted or airbnb messaged him about things during our stay. He and his adorable daughters live upstairs which is to say he's usually on-site for emergencies or urgent matters as well. I'd have to say that the highlight of staying with Chris was sitting with him over a beer and learning the local secrets of the islands. He was truly a gracious host and did everything he could to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. If we return to Tahiti in the near future, we'll be sure to book a stay with Chris.

  • Great place to stay on Tahiti. Beautiful views from the pool and a very spatious accomodation. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Chris was very responsive to our communications and made arrangements for a friend to meet us at the apartment. We spent great times with his family and he told us of great places to see in our travels on Tahiti and on Moorea. Overall a great experience and one that we highly recommend to other Airbnb travelers. Jack and Adrienne

  • Chris was an awesome host and the accommodation is excellent - the Beverly Hills of Tahiti. The photo don't even do it justice, it is very spacey, clean and comfortable. Thanks Chris, hope to catch up again :)

  • Julia and her husband are great people. They picked up us from the ferry. Even we came to Moorea shortly before Christmas when they already planned going for few days to visit their family to Tahiti island they still organised their brother (local Saman) to look after us while they were away. He helped us to transport us to the hotel where the one of the sharks stingrays tour started as noone turned up for pick up. Very honest people who welcomed us with local marmelades :-) and helped to organise for us motorbike rent as we didn't have SIM card yet to make a call. Living is fabulous, enough space, all dishes for cooking is there too. We had left also two bikes that we could use, which was handy when you go to the close beach (5 mins biking) or to small shop (5mins biking). For bigger shopping is better to have a motorbike and go to the biggest super market Champion (15 min ride, close to ferry). The place is calm only full of mosquitos, so be prepared to take some repellents if you go there before wet season. Julia provided us with some stuff againts mosquitos like fan, light, essencial sticks.... we could highly recommend it to anyone who don't want to spend money on expensive resorts or is on the budget. Many thanks it was our best holiday ever !

  • Julia and Tehamaana were amazing hosts. They were both very welcoming and weer even kind enough to pick us up and drop us off at the ferry. The holiday home was just as described. It is affordable, comfortable and clean and has everything you might need like bikes, internet, sheets, towels, kitchen utensils, books, tea and coffee and even some beer and juice in the fridge! It was nice being able to cook some of our own meals as it saved us a lot of money on eating out. Julia has prepared a very useful guide of the area with suggestions of places to see and do and they even helped us to organize a scooter rental. There aren't many public beaches on the island but conveniently the holiday home is just 10 min walk from one of them and we really enjoyed snorkeling in the incredibly crystal clear waters full of fish and coral. Thank you very much for this wonderful stay on Moorea

  • Wow! From the moment I arrived I was so impressed with this little bungalow. Julia has thought out every little detail that makes you feel right at home. The place is so clean. Everything you need for cooking is here, including essentials like oil, salt, pepper, sugar, coffee and tea. The nearby beach really is one of the best I have visited on my tour of 4 islands. Julia has prepared an information booklet that is so helpful, and she and Tehaamana are both very friendly and available to help if you need them. When I arrived unexpectedly (my phone didn't work and I didn't have e-mail for three days prior) Julia picked me up immediately from the ferry dock. She stopped at the grocery store to so I could get provisions. Her gift of local fruit jellies was so thoughtful, and delicious! When I left, Tehaamana dropped me off at the airport. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. I slept with the windows open and door unlocked, enjoying the tropical breezes and sounds of the nearby surf. As another reviewer mentioned, the bungalow is close to Julia's house and sometimes you can hear the children or Julia and Tehaamana, but most of the time it is very quiet and serene. It is also near the airfield, so occasionally you hear the small planes, but they are few and far between, and landings and takeoffs are quick. Also, like all the islands, the chickens and roosters roam freely. They scratch around in the yard and crow, but it is very natural and I enjoyed watching and listening to them. The bikes make it easy to get around and you can easily walk to the beach. If you decide to rent a scooter (which I highly recommend) Julia can tell you the name of a person who will bring the scooter to you and pick it up when you are finished. Moorea is a beautiful island, and Julia and Tehaamana are very kind people providing a beautiful place to stay while here.

  • Very pleased with my stay! The place was better than the pictures. Julia is very sweet and ready to help with anything we needed. The mosquitoes were not as bad as I had expected from the reviews. She has a great booklet both in french and english that give you tips on everything about where to eat and what to do. Definitely would recommend this place!

  • Unfortunately we didn't met Julia. She was sick. But her husband went with juice and some beer for welcome us to to the fare. The fare was like the description, small, but practic and enough. Julia prepared a travel guide with very good informations about Moorea. The fare is very near to the very nice beach of Temae. For the price is it a good choice.

  • I had a wonderful stay at the house ('fare') of Julia and Tehaa. They couldn't be there due to personal reasons but they made sure everything was in order, giving me a lot of information and ideas for things to do in advance. They also arranged a pick up and drop off at the ferry port for me, which was really kind. The house itself is really nice, and I loved coming home there and having a glass of wine at the terrace after a nice day on the beach. The bungalow is set in a beautiful garden and just a 5 minutes bike ride to the most beautiful beach on the island. By bike, you can take a shortcut to the main road, so it is just a 15-minute ride to a large (relatively, of course) town with shops and restaurants. I would really recommend staying here!

  • Julia is a very welcoming host. She arranged for someone to meet us at the ferry when she couldn't and also took us to a meeting place for our trip to swim with the stingrays. Place was clean and she had put flowers in the room. She also left some welcoming drinks in the fridge and provided us with 3 varieties of delicious jam to go on baguette. She provides bicycles for your use but if you can't use them you need to hire a car. The most beautiful public beach is about 10 minutes walk away. Good value for what you pay for. Only downside for me was having to climb ladder up to bed which was on a mezzanine floor.

  • We stayed at the nice Bungalow for 5 nights during Easter. Julia picked us up from the Ferry and droped us of when we left. The Bungalow is very typicall and big enough for 2 with luggage. Everything was dekoratet with fresh flowers and very clean. We only had a bit trouble with the Mossies, there is everything provided to prevent bites, but some people are more likely to get bitten (like my boyfriend) then others (I only had a few). The Family is lovely and they checked on us very often. We gut fresh fruit and delicius Marmelade. The Beach is close and nice. There are two bikes for the guests. Nice and calm property with a lot of coconut Palms. We would love to spend our holiday there again.

  • We arrived in Tahiti and found our paradise  'The Chalet sur piloti pieds dans L'eau' on Tahiti Iti. Our own over water bungalow, no need for tv, internet or to read a book, we were hypnotised by the water gently lapping beneath our balcony. The under floor lighting producing an amazing aquatic display of colourful fish, coral, hermit crab and a reef shark then a totally mesmerising magical manta ray nightly performance. Too magnificent to describe. Waking up to the sounds of the cockerel chorus, the thunderous sounds of the great Pacific waves and the sunlight bursting through the window is a memory that we will take back home to our snow covered Scotland. The sunsets from the bungalow are spectacular, ending the day in glorious reds and yellows with time to pour a drink before darkness falls and we can switch on the lights beneath the decking and await the next manta ray performance. Thank you Marika for the 'secret' breakfast left out each morning, a daily surprise, maybe papaya, passion fruit, bananas, avocado, pineapple, even croissants and for all your tips on exciting places to visit. Captain Yoann took us on an amazing boat trip out see the surfers riding the great Teahupoo waves, then along the wild uninhabited coast of Tahiti Iti. We moored in a river and walked 15 mins inland through the rain forest and swam in a fresh water pool in a cave. We had a picnic lunch of tuna ceviche marinaded in coconut milk, rice and for desert corossol fruit and Marika's chocolate cake whilst anchored by an idyllic palm fringed motu. And then the storm arrived!!!! Thank you Marika for being such a kind generous host, we really hope one day we will be able to return.

  • Georges and Marika spoil their guests! Check out Georges' boat tour for sure! Use the kayaks to get an up close view of the amazing coral and fish!

  • We can not say enough great things about our stay here!! Markia and George are excellent hosts and have a beautiful place for you to stay! They've got helpful insights on places to go to and things to see. Make sure to take a day trip with George's boat tours too!! It was the highlight of our trip!! This is a little piece of paradise that made our honeymoon amazing!!

  • We had an amazing time at over-water chalet! We enjoyed snorkeling and paddling right from our own doorstep. In the evenings, thanks to the time of year, we were able to sit on the porch and watch the sunset. Marika and George were so welcoming, and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our visit. We would definitely stay here again if given the chance to come back to the area!

  • Look no further... you have found the paradise. A well equiped bungalow, over the ocean, with a fantastic host, boats avalailable at your door and the most amazing landscape. We had a fantastic time at Marika's place. Marika and Jorge always helped us in every aspect of our stay. The community around is very welcoming and it has a very convinient location next to a supermarket. For surfing, this is the place to stay. You can paddle with a canoe to one of the best waves of the island (vairao). The corals in front are top notch and you can have a look at them during the night (lights in the house pointing to the corals)., and snorkel during the day. Prepare yourself for mosquitos. The house has nets and they gave us a net for our baby, but they are ferocious. Thank you Marika, Jorge, Tadyna and Yoanne

  • A picture tells a thousand words, and the photo that Marika uses to promote and advertise her bungalow is both accurate in terms of representation and inspirational in how much it tells your imagination about the place. It is cozy, intimate, charming, open, and located right on the water, with access to two kayaks, snorkeling equipment. The photo implies a great view and indeed the view is magnificent -- and features a daily sunset. As a host, Marika is warm, friendly and personally generous. We LOVED it here. While activities and shopping are quite convenient (including the best restaurant in Tahiti!), because the place is physically remote (1 hour-15-minute drive to Papeete) from major activities such as tourist shopping and cruise ships, it will appeal to folks who just want to 'get away'. The place is perfect for two but will also accommodate additional guests, most likely children or teens. To say that the view of the water and the mountains is spectacular is to be trite and cliched. It's fantastic.

  • Unbelievable experience. The home was better than Marika described. She was so wonderful to work with. Our schedule changed a bit in route, and she was so flexible and accommodating. you couldn't ask for a more gracious host. The house sits right on a very calm part of the ocean. We loved using the kayaks to paddle around. It was wonderful being away from the major tourist areas and really getting a better feel for the people and the beauty that are Tahiti. thank you Marika, if we come again, we would never consider staying anywhere but here. Using (Hidden by Airbnb) translator since everything in Tahiti is in French... Expérience incroyable . La maison était mieux que Marika décrit . Elle était tellement merveilleux de travailler avec . Notre programme a un peu changé en cours de route , et elle était si flexible et arrangeant. on ne pouvait pas demander un accueil plus gracieux . La maison se trouve à droite sur une partie très calme de l'océan . Nous avons adoré l'utilisation des kayaks pour pagayer autour . Il était merveilleux d'être loin des principales zones touristiques et vraiment obtenir une meilleure idée de la population et la beauté qui sont Tahiti . je vous remercie Marika , si nous revenons , nous ne serions jamais aller nulle part , mais ici .

  • Minh' place was in a wonderful location in the hills above the city with breathtaking views. The pool was perfect temp to stay nice and cool! Minh was so gracious and an excellent hostess! Would definitely stay at Minh's again! Merci beaucoup!

  • Minh-Thi and her husband were amazing hosts! The property is gorgeous and the hospitality was above and beyond. Our flight to Tahiti was late and yet we were greeted warmly and shown to our room. Bakery goods were brought to us for breakfast and we had a lovely dinner with the entire family during our last night on the island. I loved that this property was set up on the hillside, away from the busy city of Papeete. It was worth getting a rental car to stay in this beautiful location. My husband and I have stayed at numerous Airbnb properties all over the world, and this one certainly ranks among the best experiences. I highly recommend this property!

  • Had a great start to our journey through French Polynesia. And Fernand was a wonderful host for what was our inaugural airbnb experience. We fully understand why you chose lot no. 188. The studio meant double happiness to us as well - our junior was enjoying the pool and the parents the tranquility and views. With the well-stocked supermarket nearby, it's easy to just stay up on the hill and enjoy yourself. Thanks for the racquet de moskitos, it served well on many of the other islands.

  • Amazing stay as usual. This is another home for us in Tahiti!!!

  • Min-Thin and Fernand are warm and attentive hosts. The transfer back and forth was free. The apartment is very spacious, modern, tasteful and furnished with everything you need. The view of the harbor and city is amazing. The value for money outstanding.

  • Minh-Thi's place is located in Pamatai Hill, one of the best resident area in Tahiti. She has a lovely and warm welcome family, we miss her kids very much after our departure. We will highly recommend Minh-Thi's place to everyone! Best place, best host, best location!

  • Minh Thi's house is beautifully located in a large gated compound overlooking Papeete. Her instructions for getting there were clear and accurate. Our room was comfy and well appointed, especially the kitchen area. Sadly the weather was rather poor when we stayed so could not really enjoy the pool area but I imagine you would feel like a million dollars sunbathing there. A lovely place and a lovely host!

  • Another great stay at Minh-Thi's place. Once again, great hosts, great location, great views and accommodations. Can't recommend more highly.

  • Philippe's place was absolutely beautiful and in the best location possible for snorkeling and playing in the lagoon. The back patio was perfect for lounging and family dinners and we loved having access to a kayak and paddle board for exploring the water in our backyard. Phillipe was a very gracious host and we would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone traveling to the area. Thank you!

  • Phillipe gave us excellent directions and met us at the gas station near his home to ensure we made it the rest of the way safely. From the moment we arrived we felt at home and comfortable. The home is beautiful and is located on a great snorkelling spot. The outdoor patio and yard looking over the ocean were fantastic. The kitchen was welled stocked with condiments, dishes, pots and pans and everything you need. The fridge was even stocked with juice, milk water eggs, pop, beer, cheese, fresh fruit and bread! Phillipe even brought over some freshly cooked breadfruit for us to sample. This is one of the best Air BnB homes we have stayed in and I highly recommend it to others. I hope we return to Tahiti one day and can stay at Phillipes again.

  • Philippe is great host and very helpful. His house is in a great location and he lives next door in case you need anything. Always very pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed ourselves. You will need a car to be in this location as not much you can do without some wheels.

  • It was an all-round wonderful experience! The place is quite handy and close to the airport and when we reached there, Philippe was there to greet us and to answer any questions. The house was airy and spacious and right next to the ocean! You have your private beach and the views are just spectacular. On our first day, in the evening, Philippe drove us to the local supermarket and back - that was such a lovely gesture. The place has its own kayak and a paddle-board but Philippe offered his own. The kayak was a bit too heavy for us so he and his son carried it down to the beach and picked it up again afterwards. The house itself is amazing, perhaps the photos don't do it justice (not to say they are bad!) but you'd love it more when you see it in person. Overall, I can't recommend this place more. We know where we are going when we will be on the main Tahiti island next!

  • Great Communication, wonderful hospitality, beautiful place, lovely location and the best part is the gorgeous ocean in the backyard.

  • Beautiful and well equipped house with a lovely terrace and direct access to a quiet beach. And very welcoming hosts! As we arrived on Sunday afternoon and Monday was a public holiday with shops closed, Philippe provided all the necessities to survive our 2 days stay. We absolutely enjoyed our short visit and highly recomend the place.

  • We just finished the most lovely stay at Philippe's place. Very spacious for the two of us with 2 large bedrooms and 3 beds. Lovely big bathroom and kitchen. Fridge was stocked with eggs, butter, coffee, beer and many other amenities. Ample towels in the bathroom. The best part was the large backyard and frontyard which had both a covered shaded sitting area and a sunny bathing area. Large picnic table where we drank wine and ate all our meals. Perfect sunset watching spot. And if that wasn't enough, there are a short stone staircase that takes you down to your own small private beach area (in reality open to the public but not commonly used) and a lagoon-like entrance to calm shallow ocean water. Also, they have a cool outdoor shower where we could rinse all the sand etc after a dip in the ocean. We had the use of Philippe's paddleboard and kayak which we used daily. Snorkeling also is a great option here. The one bedroom we stayed at had a very comfortable bed. Great view of the ocean and sunset from both bedrooms. The Air Con worked extremely well (my husband's very fussy about his A/C) It was so private too as it is a self standing home next door to where Philippe lives which is comforting to know he is so close by. I think our stay here was the best part of Papeete Island....we had a car but whenever we were out we found we were impatient to get back to our little place of paradise.

  • Philippe and Tania were the most caring and friendly hosts. They accommodated my arrival time and made me feel so welcome. The house is beautiful. Very private, clean, and everything I needed for my stay was readily available. The home is right on the lagoon with amazing views. I used the paddleboard every day. I highly recommend staying here!

  • Laurent was great with communication, and then on the island Sylviana was very friendly and helpful telling us everything about the house and the island. The house is absolutely on the beach and there is lovely space outside to sit and enjoy the view. The only shame is that you can't swim or snorkel in the sea directly outside the house, because the coral is too shallow, but it is just a short walk to the great public beach of Temae. There is always a strong sea breeze at the house.

  • We had a wonderful time at Laurent’s beach house! The house and beach was secluded but not too far from town. There was a small store to get things like bread, eggs, and coffee that was a short walk down the road. It was great walking the beaches along the house. Right our front was rocks/reef which made for a great for a view and looking for fish but not swimming.Walking to the left 15 min was a beautiful secluded lagoon to swim in and to the right about 15 minutes walking was a public beach with crystal clear water also. We loved sitting on the covered patio for breakfast and took naps outside in the afternoon. Maruuru Laurent!!

  • What a wonderful house! My wife and I stayed at the Beach House for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! It was very quiet and private. Sylviane was waiting for us on our arrival and had lots of great advice about house, the area, and the beaches. She was extremely kind and sweet.The house was exactly as it appears:perfect. We stayed in the second level bedroom which had an excellent breeze and calming ocean sounds at night. It's quite a ways off a dirt road so we rented a car from Albert Tours the entire time. With the reasonable price of the house compared to a resort, renting a care wasn't a huge cost. We spent a couple days on the beach in front of the house and just wadded in the water but like Laurent says, there's a beautiful, swimmable beach about a 10-15 min walk away. Would definitely recommend bringing a stick to ward off dogs protecting their homes. If you are staying in Moorea and want a relaxing vacation, this is the place for you!

  • We had an amazing week spent at Laurent beautiful home, located in a prime spot on the Island. The location for us was perfect as it was close to the ferry, a few small stores and a wonderful golf course with a private beach right out front of the property. If you walk down the beach to the right about a half mile it is also perfect for snorkeling! Plenty of space in the house to cook at home or spend the day relaxing. Thank you again Laurent, we hope to some day visit again :)

  • The Beach House is fantastic! The photos truly reflect the villa as it is. The house has everything you need, the Wifi signal is excellent and plenty of hot water, if you need it. There is a small shop nearby and 2 or 3 restaurants within walking distance. Howver, to explore Moorea properly, a car or scooter would be best as it gets very very hot for walking. Sylvian is the kindest, most helpful woman. Nothing is too mych trouble for her and she anticipates what you may need. The surrounding area is quiet, with either local villas or holiday rentals. Although the airport is close you don't hear any of the planes as the sound of the surf sweeping up the beach cancels it out. All in all, one of my top 3 places in the world to come and stay.

  • Le Maison de la Plage was just as described by the host Lauren, in fact even better once were we there! We would definitely come again, great place to chill out away from the tourists !

  • If you're looking for a romantic getaway or a wonderful place for families, you won't go wrong with Laurent's beach-side hideaway. The descriptions don't do it justice, it's so much more. Feels like you're on your own private island, yet close to the public beach, shops, fuel and restaurants. Whale watching from your beach-front back yard. We can't rate this place high enough. Truly magnificent!

  • A fantastic and calm place on earth! There is a beach nearby where you can snorkel and see a lot of fish

    On the heights of the plateau of Taravao, bungalow adjoining the house, 35m2, double bed, shower, washbasin, WC, small swimming pool. Enjoy the original woodwork, the peaceful countryside, the view of the sea and the luxuriant vegetation of the peninsula.
  • The welcome is genuine and your safety and well being is of concern to the hosts. In no way are they intrusive, but genuine people who are interested in that you enjoy your time in Tahiti. If you like rustic and natural surroundings this is the place. And they spoke English. Like anywhere mosquitoes are there.

  • We had such a good time with Stephane and Brigitte, we really felt like at home!! Stephane ad Brigitte gave us delicious fresh fruit from the garde to taste, we had a lot of laughing and good discussions about Tahitian life and traditions, wonderful experience, thank you so much!!

  • This is the most fantastic place, Stephane and Brigitte went out of their way to make us feel so welcome and share with us everything the island has to offer. We were amazed at how lovely the area of Taravao is, there is a lot of beauty to explore but it is equally fun just relaxing at the house and taking a dip in the pool and looking at the breathtaking view.. If you want to experience all that Tahiti has to offer, this is the spot, you will absolutely love it!!!

  • Staying at Stephane's was the highlight of our trip in Tahiti. We couldn't get over how nice the place was. The side house was a topical paradise dream and being in the swimming pool makes you feel you're in the middle of the jungle. Stephane was a five star host and much more! He was so patient in searching us when we were lost on arrival. We enjoyed our talks in the evenings, and was overwhelmed by the generosity we've received. We were a bit sad to leave at the end, and this was for sure one of our best experience we had with airbnb.

  • Absolutely loved my stay with Brigitte and Stephane and wish I had more time with them. They were so helpful in planning pre-arrival and during the stay. Stephane met me at a nearby location and I followed him to their place in an idyllic spot. The accommodation was uniquely styled and so relaxing. Private, but connected to the deck where we ate and chatted. As my French is terrible I greatly appreciated their English fluency, and it motivated me to begin learning the language again. Perfectly situated, with beautiful water views through the vegetation, to explore the entire island which is an easy drive. Highly recommend to other guests, with note that wild roosters are everywhere in Tahiti so for more peaceful sleeping when they crow during the night I recommend using the fan in combination with ear plugs for a better night's sleep.

  • Fantastic! We had the most wonderful time in Taraveo. The bungalow was perfect, very rustic, and, whilst a part of the house, it felt as if we were quite separate, with our own space which had access to their lovely garden. Stephane and Brigitte are the best hosts, providing a great breakfast with home made bread and jams plus tea/ coffee whenever you want it, but they went over and above what we expected when Stephane came to look for us as our phones were not working. We had the most magical stay with them and would thoroughly recommend their place to everyone.

  • Stéphane and Brigitte were warm and welcoming from the moment we met them. They both were hospitable and open to talking about many things, while at the same time more than happy to give us our privacy when we needed it. To add to that they were generous and helpful at every moment. The room has everything you could need to be comfortable and the same for the home. It was the perfect place for us to explore the island from for a few days. For us, it was much nicer and peaceful staying in the south and venturing out from there. Where they live is a perfect location and if you get a car is great for getting anywhere you want to.

  • My stay in Stephane and Brigitte's was very lovely. I felt like if i was adopted by this lovely French couple. They took good care of me, recommended things i could do or visit, and also explained me things about life in French Polynesia. Stephane was very nice offering the opportunity to get a transfer from the airport to their cozy home. Brigitte was very nice, offering the opportunity to enjoy meals with them. I would highly recommend this place, if you want to see the nicest part of Tahiti island. Thanks for everything, i already miss you :)

    5min drive from the airport and the city center. Parking in front of the residence, Swimming pool and gym with stunning views of the roads of Papeete.
  • A great apartment close to the food caravans and markets in the hub of the town. Great views over looking the port from the pool. Our hosts Sebastian and Mylene went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks again. Louise and Steve

  • We really loved the place. Great pool, quiet, lovely apartment, and great owner. Note though, it is on a steep hill and about 35-40 minute walk to downtown Papeete. We would stay there again!

  • Spacious and modern apartment with nice pool and gym. 20min walk to the centre of town

  • A very spacious, tidy and clean apartment within walking distance of the centre of Papeete and supermarkets. Comfortable bed, airconditioned, large refrigerator/freezer, washing machine, cook top and oven, television with a balcony to enjoy outdoor drinks etc. Entry code worked well and Mylene responded quickly to any concerns. Great views from the horizon pool which does need some refurbishment. The walk up the hill is a little taxing but no problem if you have a car. Surrounded by greenery and the roosters are a reliable alarm clock. Would recommend the apartment.

  • Mylène's place was great! Perfectly located near the city center, the flat was clean, spacious and very comfy! We also enjoyed the pool which offers an amazing view and the gym. Mylène was very quick to answer and the communication with her was good. I do recommend this place during your stay in Tahiti!

  • The apartment for the most part was very nice and clean. Had a small gym and pool with a great view for the building. Has a/c. Mylene's husband was nice enough to pick me up from the airport with all my bags and was helpful with directions. Was about half hour walking distance to the main town and the road is quite steep. Very quiet. My only gripe is a couple of large bugs..though to be fair this may be common for Tahiti.

  • We absolutely loved the place and it fit our needs. Door code was wrong and the directions were hand-written by an email. Fix those 2 things and it's a five star for sure!

  • The condo is very roomy and comfortable! The WiFi is great and the pool is amazing!! It is also very clean with everything you need for a great stay. Make sure you study the map because it is hard to find in the dark. A car is nice to have also.

A great location close to everything you need! Merci Beaucoup Maeva!!!

  • My son and I had a fantastic stay in one of the lovely open yet private bungalows. We had an authentic Tahitian experience with many of the comforts we are so accustomed to. Maeva was a gratious hostess throughout always being of the greatest assistance and offering great advice and yummy local fruit and flower treats. Wonderful in every way!

  • Maevaj was welcoming and helpful. She had asked me to confirm my airport pick up but I hadnt as I didnt have phone or wifi access but she came to the airport to pick me up anyway. Without transport you will need to plan your meals as there aren't any nearby restaurants but a scooter is easy to organise (relatively expensive on Moorea). Make sure you bring insect repellent for the mosquitos, the bed has a net.

  • Very nice option, close to a fantastic beach. Nice householder, always available to support for any need related to the trip in Moorea.

  • Such a nice place close to the beach. Great atmosphere. Nice and clean bungalow well equipped with everything you need and a small private garden in front of the bungalow. Helpful and nice people. You can borrow bikes and they can organize scooter rental as well.

  • Maeva was a heaven on earth. She make your stay at her bouwgalos so special. Place is close to the public beach but if not the private beach is amazing too. Bungalows are perfect for whatever you will need during your stay. Super recomend it! Thanks a lot Maeva for everything!

    My little FARE (house in tahitian) is located 15 min walking from Papeete center, 10 to 15 min drive from Int.airport , with view on Moorea island, little Fancy polynesian bungalow on a little hill, great to organise your journey around Tahiti or our beautiful islands... Iaorana !
    Your "Petit Fare" have been spécialy CLEANED and FIXED for you, with a small dining room, microwave and tiny-fridge, a bedroom with a large queen bed, a desk to whrite mails to yours friends and have a "Tuamotu style" bathroom with toilets and shower... PLEASE keep it CLEAN and TEDDY when you leave. Airbnb is a homestay, no HOTEL, TK. Mauruuru. Internet is free from 7;30am to 10:00pm (sorry no Internet at night) but ask if REALLY NEED IT.
    My little fare is located in a family street. It's easy to go to Papeete civic center, walk arround Market place, visit the Paofai Park along the sea. To come back to the "little Fare" it's a little bit sportive walk, we are located on a small hill. But I can pick you up also each time I go back to my place !
  • This little fare is nicely located not far from the center of Papeete yet the only concern is that it's on a steep hill that you must sweat in case you walk back;) for this reason there's a beautiful view look out. The room is tiny and tidy, lovely open air shower. Mosquito net to ensure you a sound sleep. Ideally for a visit in Papeete and the transfer from and to airport is very reasonably charged. Would definitely go back when passing by Papeete.

  • Nathalie is a great host. She is very helpful and will go out of her way to ensure you have everything you need and that your trip runs smoothly. She kindly got up very early to pick me up and drop me off at the airport, which saved me the trouble of organising taxis. The place is nice and close to the town centre and also has a gorgeous view. Everything was clean and tidy. I would definitely stay with Nathalie again.

  • Correct

  • Nathalie is a absolutly perfect host. She is always happy and really want you to enjoy your holiday. She helps you a lot, even if you dont ask she gives you many useful information. The little appartment we stayed was very cute. We felt very well during our stay! Because we liked it that much, we are going back to nathalie in already 2 weeks! Its comfortable she picks you up from the airport!

  • Petit Fare was just what I needed. It was separate from the house, clean and neat, and the fact that they both spoke English was very helpful. Both Nathalie and Albert met me at the airport which was also most helpful.   Accuracy 4:  everything was as advertised and they do mention on their web site that the pool was closed and it was. They say it is 10 minutes to the “civic center” and I don’t know where that was but it was 30 minutes to the dock and coming home the last 10 minutes was up a steep hill.   Cleanliness 5: I thought it was clean and well kept.   Check in 5: Very easy and pleasant as they met (Email hidden by Airbnb) munication 5: Very helpful that they spoke English.   Location 5: I thought the location was very nice. High so it looked out on the city and out to Moorea, but a long walk home.   Value 5: I really have little experience with Air B & B and I did not check any hotel prices for comparison.  It seemed fair to me.   Nathalie and Albert were very nice and helpful. They suggested giving me a tour of the island instead of renting a car and that was very nice. We drove all the way counterclockwise around Tahiti and to the end of the road to Tautira on Tahitienne. Of course I mentioned the places you had suggested and we stopped at all of those and some they clearly liked as

  • Happy we got to stay another night at Nathalie's place at the end of our trip in French Polynesia. Great base for exploring Papeete and Nathalie was very helpful with everything, including picking us up at the ferry and driving us to the airport. Also very nice to allow us to take a dip in the pool after a hot day in the sun!

  • Nathalie was a great host! Our stay was short but it was nice to have somewhere to go until we could get on a cruise. She picked us up from the airport (and had to wait for us because the flight was delayed) then took us to the dock. We took a nap, walked downtown for lunch, and got cleaned up. We were so happy with our stay!

  • Nathalie was an amazing host, she really made us feel welcome and looked after us during our stay. She even picked us up from the airport, which was really handy. Her house is lovely and her pets are very well behaved, we especially liked Fidea the bird!

The privileged location of our property with access to the white sand beach (50 m from the beach) adjoining that of the Méridien hotel
  • Very unique and fun combo of lodge and island living. There were very cute features and Isabelle made check-in an easy thing (my wife and I speak English). Isabelle had breakfast ingredients ready in our private fridge, which helped as we had an early flight. The one thing to look out for is, this being a tropical island, and bugs that may emerge more frequently compared to a mainland location.

  • Isabelle is an amazing host. She coordinated the check-in easily, gave us advice about where to go and eat on the island. The bedroom is very comfortable, the bathroom is beautiful (probably the best I've seen!). Isabelle had also prepared all the breakfast ingredients for us and put them in the fridge. We enjoyed a nice breakfast in the private garden without having to buy groceries. The location of the house is great too: You can walk to a beautiful beach. Finally, Isabelle let us checkout at 9pm (our flight was at midnight) and we are very grateful for that. We highly recommend staying there!

  • Isabelle was very helpful and kindly. She picked up from the airport and carried us back. And she had a lot of helpful information what to do in Tahiti. Also she helped us with the car rental. Unforgettable days in Tahiti. Thank you Isabelle

  • Beautiful little apartment walking distance to the beach (fantastic sunrises!). There's a supermarket only a few minutes walk up the road which is perfect for buying food and drink to take back and enjoy in the little garden outside. Isabelle was a wonderful host and left us some essentials in the fridge for when we arrived which was much appreciated. There were quite a few mosquitoes around but we expect this in all humid countries! Isabelle provides you with a mosquito net and spray for the room so just don't forget your insect repellant and you'll be fine! Thanks for a wonderful first few days of our honeymoon. Cassie and Chris

  • Isabelle & Vincent are just great! They picked me up and made sure I settled in well and frequently asked me if everything was ok. Their place is very spacious, with a nice bathroom, kitchen and great bed. You have everything you need! Close to the beach, shops and hotel Le Meridien. Definitely would recommend this, and will go back if I am back in Tahiti.

  • I love the little house in Isabelles backyard! She did everything to make ourstay unforgettable, she lent us snorkelling kits andgave us lifts to town when we needed them. The hotel meridien is just next door for more information and activities

  • Isabelle was the best host! I had the most amazing experience with her. She is the most kind hearted, helpful, beautiful woman that I met in Tahiti. I only booked 2 nights at her house because I was planning on staying in Moorea the following 2 nights, but decided to stay for an extra 2 nights because it was so inviting. She was extremely helpful with the large language barrier here (French) and helped us with rides around the island- renting a car and what not. Beautiful home, beautiful soul, amazing experience. Highly recommend her! Thank you Isabelle!

  • Lovely mini-flat, seconds to the beach and right next to le Meridien hotel where you can basically use all the facilities for free. Isabelle is absolutely fantastic and so friendly and helpful. Bed is enormous and very comfortable and the garden+bench are great for having breakfast.

  • The name "Eden" for Caroline's place is aptly chosen. We arrived and felt immediately as if we were in our own little paradise. Thanks to the beautiful pictures in Caroline's ad and the great reviews we had high expectations which were fully met if not surpassed. Caroline and her husband are very welcoming, open, friendly and helpful and great cooks. Breakfast which was included was fantastic. We loved every minute of our stay and hope to be back before long. Definitely recommended!

  • Caroline was all that is gracious and elegant. Her years in the hospitality industry have made her a supreme hostess. She sets an elegant table and her home is a true delight.

    Patricia 2017-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing and the hosts are likewise. We loved every bit of our stay and highly recommend staying here to anyone. Caroline gave us insider tips on the best places and beaches to go to and booked us on amazing boats and on and on. Staying here helps you do Moorea like a local and is a great value and the company is great.

  • The Hosts: Prior to and during my stay Caroline&Cédric were always very responsive to my questions and accommodated all my needs. When you meet Caroline and her wonderful family you will find the most amiable, considerate and helpful people you will ever have met. They are fun to be around and gracious beyond words. The Location: Caroline's home is located in a very quiet, safe and beautiful residential neighborhood. With a car or scooter you can navigate the island with great ease. The Accommodation: My room was clean, private, well-equipped and beautifully-decorated. With easy access to the other main parts of the house, I was very comfortable and it felt like home indeed! Extra delights: Caroline's filling breakfast every morning was a delight to wake up for and a great way to kick-start my day. The views and pool were also special and unforgettable. In conclusion, make no mistake, the accommodations at Caroline&Cédric&Lou-Pauline's is unmatched, with world-class hospitality and charm!

  • Eden Villa Moorea is like a dream come true! Caroline & her husband Cedric welcomed us into her home like we were her own family! :) My fiancé and I spent 7 days in Tahit & 2 days in Moorea & at the end we wish we had spent 7 in Moorea instead. Caroline is incredibly warm & sweet & is quick to communicate via email. The pictures on the site DO NOT do her home enough justice......Eden Villa is perfection! Caroline picked us up from the Ferry drop off & had a darling little sign with our names on it so it was easy to spot her! Caroline is beautiful, funny, upbeat woman who opens her heart and home to you! Her husband and daughters were so kind & friendly too! The drive to her home is calm & the views of the ocean, beaches & mountains are spectacular! Caroline can set up services for a motor scooter and/or vehicle is you choose. We rented a scooter for the days & it was smart that we did because most of the island is spread out. Her home is very safe & has 2 electric gates which it sits behind & it's of course along the ocean. Her pool is amazing & the chairs & towels she offers make it all so convenient from your bedroom. Her home & amenities are fantastic! Our room had strong a/c & the bed & sheets feel like butter to sleep in! She decorates the rooms, bathroom, Loo with the local flower Tiaré & has a candle burning in black sand inside your room. You can pay a little extra and they will also prepare a delicious meal including fresh sashimi, tartar & steamed veggies! Her breakfast's overlook the views & you almost wanna drink a 3rd cup of coffee because it's so relaxing! We decided to do a snorkel/island tour which was SO MUCH FUN! Swam with sting rays & sharks! Driving up to Belvedere via motor scooter is HIGHLY suggested too! This was Henry's favorite spot :) By the time it was time to go, my (now fiancé) proposed to me which made the trip like a dream! When it was time for Caroline to take us back to the Ferry drop off I had tears in my eyes as I was soooooo sad to leave. Caroline is now our family & we will never forget our "magical" trip to Moorea! Caroline will be our friend forever! We are so blessed to have found this amazing spot! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you Caroline, Henry and I miss you already!!! xoxo

  • Great view, waterfront, nice pool and deck. Caroline, the host, was pleasant and helpful. Need car rental to drive around.

  • This place is top notch. Caroline and Cedric do a fantastic job making you feel right at home. They link you with many local connections and after a couple days you feel like a local. The experience was magnificient and would recommend this place to anyone.

  • Caroline and Cedric’s home exceeded our expectations in every way. We felt safe and comfortable in their home in spite of being there during very stormy weather. Caroline recommended and scheduled wonderful tours for us and rescheduled all of them to accommodate the changing weather. Their home was tastefully decorated, spotless, beautiful and overlooking a lovely bay. The covered outdoor living space made it possible for us to enjoy the view and watch the stormy weather with a cup of hot tea from comfortable sofas. The breakfasts were yummy and we opted to have them cook dinners for us as well. They are wonderful chefs and took advantage of the delicious fresh local fish to create delightful dinners. But perhaps our favorite part of the visit was sharing mealtimes with them, getting to know them and hearing about the fascinating culture of French Polynesia.

    Small hut on stilts with direct views to the sea ....
    This small hut in the trees is an annex of the main house. You have your private bathroom but you share the kitchen with the main house. The highlight of this dwelling is to have the luxury of waking up to the water's edge and admiring the sunset of your bed before falling asleep with the song of the waves ....
    The access to the beach is direct from your room. It is located a few meters from a snack bar and 10 minutes from a small shopping center with a pharmacy.
  • We stayed for 3 nights in this beautiful and cute treehouse but would have been happy to stay for a month (or even forever). The treehouse itself is simple, perfect and set in peaceful surroundings. Yet there is a shop and some tasty food trucks in walking distance. Tea and her 3 dogs made us feel completely at home, providing a warm and friendly welcome. We would recommend it highly to those looking for a real Tahitian experience. There is coral and fish in the ocean in front of the Treehouse, the beach is full of life at the weekends and public holidays.

  • We stayed with Tea for two nights at her wonderful treehouse. She was more than just helpful about getting to her place and even prepared breakfast for us. We would definitely go back to this amazing place if travelling to Tahiti again. It was just perfect for us and right by the most beautiful beach. A dream to relax and recharge.

  • A magic spot

  • I promise you that you won't regret booking. If you like camping and nature this place is perfect for you. T and her family are unbelievably kind and friendly. We even cooked a huge meal together and had many laughs. There is a small resturant at the gates when you enter. C'est délicieux! Also their is a grocery store about 2k from the house. It's actually a nice walk. You can pick fresh organic fruit from the trees as well. I felt lt so connected with nature in the treehouse. T is wealth of knowledge about the islands, so please pick her brain. The water in front of the property is very kid friendly. Their is also beautiful coral reef all around. The bus stops right in front of her house. Super convenient for traveling to the markets. We will definitely be returning. Truly paradise.

  • Waking up and falling asleep to this view is unreal! The bug bites are worth the ocean front bed view! The color of the water changes throughout the day... Like 50 shades of blue/turquoise. It's breath taking. Tea is awesome and very helpful! She even gave us some local mosquito oil repellent. You definitely get the local experience here. You are sleeping out in the open but there is a mosquito net! Plus she has snorkel gear and kayaks. It's basically your own private beach. The water is more clear than any I've ever seen. And you can lay out topless if you'd like... that's normal here.👍🏼 You might see a couple people on the beach at most. I would recommend renting a car one day because you can drive around the whole island in 2 hours and see some amazing views and beaches. But I still think Tea's place had the best beach and view I'd seen on the whole island! And if you want to get dressed up for a night or just eat some amazing food go to the restaurant called Blue Banana. Best meal we had. Also hitch hiking is not scary here... the locals are so kind! Ps. Practice your French before coming to Tahiti! Can't wait to come back!

  • Highly recommended airbnb property! Best vacation we had ever, best airbnb place we have ever stayed and we are experienced travelers. There are mosquitoes, but a mosquito net is provided. Bring Off or Citronella Oil if you want a natural remedy. On the weekends the neighbors may have loud parties during the day. We usually went site-seeing on these days. But, on weekdays the beach and lagoon are nearly deserted. The host provides a wheel barrel to move your luggage down the tropical floral path way. Check out her website as she has another tree house and another 6-person authentic fabulous Tahitian mansion overlooking the beautiful well kept gardens. (Website hidden by Airbnb) ~ We loved it so much we are planning to go back again in a year. Tare was so helpful with offering suggestions about what to see to how to stay on a paddle board. She has snorkeling equipment, paddle board and kayaks. The tree house is located steps away from the lagoon and is the only white sand beach on the whole Tahiti island. There are wonderful fruits from her garden such as bananas, lilikoi (passion fruit), ripest delicious papayas and noni. This is the ultimate experience anyone could ever take for a tropical vacation. If there was one vacation anyone saves up for to take in their life, this one is it. Best to get her phone number to text her when you reach the airport so that she can let you in the security gate.

  • We really enjoyed staying here, it is right on the beach which is great for snorkelling, the host will tell you where is good to go and is always very helpful. Although this place is quite far from the nearest town if you do not have a car, this did not bother us as we walked along the beach to the nearest supermarket and there is a few food trucks near by for dinner which are quite cheap for Tahiti. Thanks so much for our stay.

  • We had the most amazing time staying in this wonderful, wonderful treehouse. Words can't describe just how truly beautiful this slice of paradise really is. The only thing that was probably better was our host, who went above and beyond to make us feel at home and comfortable during our stay. We didn't want to leave!!!! If Tahiti weren't so far away I'd be booking this place out ALL the time. Air B and B was made for places like this!!!

  • Frank is an incredibly warm and welcoming host! The accommodation was comfortable and well equipped! His family where lovely and frank couldn't do enough offering advise on where to go and even opening several coconuts for me! I would definitely stay at franks again if I return to Tahiti!

  • Franck is an awesome person!! His family is so sweet and the cute Bungalow he prepared for us was very comfortable. We had everything we need and more!! He picked us from the airport and we got Lei with beautiful Tahitian tropical flowers.

  • We stayed with Franck for only a few days but wish it could have been much longer! The bungalow was absolutely perfect for what we needed and Franck even let us borrow his bikes and snorkeling equipment to go the beach which is conveniently close! Tahiti was beautiful but we can honestly say that it was Franck who made our visit so enjoyable. He took us to Papetee with his family one evening to try some traditional tahitian food which was a great experience. We hope to go back to Tahiti and would stay with Franck again in a heartbeat! Thank you again for hosting us! Alex & Ed.

  • This was our first air bnb experience and we could not have been happier. Franck was awesome, he picked and dropped us off at the airport which made everything so much easier for us. He also let us stay late as we had a late departure flight. The bungalow was perfect and had everything we needed, including WiFi, all kitchen essentials, a great shower etc. There is an amazing pool too. It was a quick walk to the shops, beaches and bus stop. We loved staying at Francks and only wished we could have stayed longer.

  • Super

  • Franck was really nice and he has lovely family. I arrived there at 2 am. But he woke up and opened the gate for me. I just stayed for 2 nights but I'll stay there again.

  • Francks bungalow is the perfect base to explore the magical Tahiti. Very close to two lovely beaches. And with the bikes provided it meant we could get about, for the majority of the time, without the need for a car or bus. We explored the islands of Moorea and Tetiroa - both fantastic day trips. And hired a car for two days to allow us to explore Tahiti itself. Franck is a great host - very accommodating. Excellent communication from start to finish, and booked our car rental and our Tetiroa day trip for us. p.s. If your a keen runner, ask him and he might be able to show you some good routes!

  • I had such a wonderful stay at Francks Bungalow! Franck is a perfect host. He picked me up from the airport, he gave me bike and showed me the neighborhood and the small places to be around his village - like the two wonderful lagoons and a small restaurant at the border of the street where we ate a great local fish plate. The house was clean and very comfortable. I was also free to use the pool and the wifi. I really appreciated the time at the Punaauia Bungalow and can warmly recommend Franck as a host!

  • Great place. Fun, friendly, central. Met many interesting guests in the shared kitchen area; shared meals and drinks and travel stories, and even went on some adventures with fellow guests. Luc was hilarious. Such a fun, friendly and helpful guy. We'd definitely come here again.

  • Awesome hosts

  • A super easy stop over, and a nice warm welcome from Luc. He was very kind and helpful. Great communication too. The place is very well looked after and super clean. He and his wife spend a lot of time and effort making the place look nice and there are some nice touches like fruit and tea and coffee for guests to use. There is also information readily available and it's very handy for the supermarket and a short walk to town. As I was staying in the poolside room the only thing I found a bit of a problem was the noise from the road, which was in full flow at 6.30am. I guess if you were staying in the main house (and paying a bit more) it would have been less noisy. But other than that a great place to stay.

  • Amazing place. East to get, very convenient, great accommodation, everyone is super helpful, everything was in great order, supermarket very close, bikes, cozy rooms. I was taking care almost like at my mum home.

  • Easy to check in. Our place was great. The open kitchen and ability to interact with other guest was fun. Thanks again Luc.

  • Luc and Laurence will bend over backwards to ensure you have a perfect stay. They will help you with organising excursions and transport. Their Airbnb is not far from Papeete and from a very good local supermarket. I loved their communal kitchen which gave us the opportunity to meet the other guests. The outdoor shower is fantastic! The pool, open at all hours is at the perfect temperature. We had a great time! Michèle and Michael

  • Fare rea rea is a great place with great people and a great cat. Actually, I planned on staying two nights but as I liked it so much, I decided to stay two more nights and it was totally worth it. Luc is really nice and has great advice when it comes to travel plans. There are 4 or 5 more rooms on the property with other travelles, so there are a lot of oportunities to exchange and have fun with other travelers. His place is very convenietly located. It's only a 10 minute walk to the gare maritime and a super U supermarket is right around the corner. Luc's mother in law even invited us all over for some exceptional food! If I should ever be in Papeete again, I will definitely come back! Oh, the wifi is great also. all in all - highly recommended!

  • Luc is great and makes sure that all his guests have a good visit!

  • Tea responded quickly to all my emails, gave good directions to the bungalow, and was very friendly upon our arrival. The space is clean and comfortable, and the visiting animals --especially the tiger kitten!--were most welcome! Wifi works well, and restaurants and grocery stores are nearby. The snorkeling just a little to the left or right of the property is quite good, with many interesting types of coral AND anemones! Having the option to use bikes and/or kayaks was also very nice.

  • What a beautiful spot this! I enjoyed paddling the kayak out to the motu at sunrise. So serene.

  • We stayed 10 days at Tea and Alex`s bungalow. It could not have been a better choice. The location is excelent close to shops, surf spots and the beach. Tea and Alex made us feel like home with privacy and confort and also helped us everytime we needed, they were really good hosts. The bungalow is exactly like it is in the photos, new, well ventilated, nice large bed, confortable linens and very very clean. Our experience was the best ever. Thanks once again!

  • Tea was wonderful! Beautiful location and close to shops and diving. Tea was kind enough to help me with the bus system and show me a few hikes on the island. The room was comfy and clean but I wasn't in there too much during my stay. The kayaks are very useful for snorkeling and exploring the little lagoons.

  • Tea and Alex are just lovely hosts! They were super helpful in recommending places to visit on the island, snorkelling spots, restaurants etc. The bungalow is just next to the beach with great sunset views. The accommodation covers all your basic needs- a comfy bed, small kitchenette, bathroom with shower- all very clean and in good condition. It is safe, master guard dog Kali included :) We spent most of our time exploring the island so it was all we needed. This is a perfect place to use as your home base while getting to know Moorea. Thank you for a great stay!

  • This bungalon was an oasis! Private, modern interior, clean and very well equipped, we had a great time exploring Moorea from this base. The private beach is wonderful and the bungalow is located just ten minutes by kayak (which were provided with the cabin) from an island where there is a restaurant! Great location, stunning sunsets and wonderful hosts!

  • Tea is an excellent host! She greeted us and helped us organize every activity while we were in Moorea. She's always there for advice, and to give you great tips. The place is beautiful, there's a beach right there in your yard! The free kayaks and bikes made our stay! Alex even gave us a drive to go back to the boat!

  • Tea and Alex are lovely hosts, very kind, helpful and keen to provide help and info. the location is perfect, on the beach, near one of the best beaches of the island, and not far from the two marvelous bays. the bungalows are large, comfortable and nicely arranged...with kitchen included. I fully reccomend it!

  • Clodilde was a great host, she welcomed us at 3am after our flight got delayed. She took the time to give directions to her house to the taxi driver. Her and her husband were very helpful and even dropped us at the ferry the next day even though we forgot to organise this beforehand with them. The house is beautiful and the view is amazing. It was a shame we didn't have time to enjoy the lovely swimming pool with sea views. The house is up the hill and far from the airport, so perfect if you are renting a car, or arriving at a time when you can arrange for them to pick you up, otherwise you will spend around USD 50 on a taxi to get there. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and Clodilde and her husband are lovely hosts.

  • Amazing place and amazing family! From the house Located on top of the hill we could see the beautefull bay and the port, actually in the morning we loved the view from the swimming pool. We had pick up at the airport and the planehad 1 hour delay, they sere there waiting for us with flowers, just wonderfull. Recommended to any future guest.

  • It was a new, spacious, clean and modern house with swimming pool and jacuzzi to enjoy with stunning views. The hosts are amazing people, very smart, experienced, sociable and interesting to talk with who made me feel so welcomed. 10 out of 10! Looking forward to going back! A big thanks to you Clotilde and your husband.

  • Clothilde and her family were very welcoming and friendly. They picked us up at the airport and waited patiently when our flight was a little delayed. Their home is beautiful, with a gorgeous pool and the most amazing view of Papeete. This was a great place to stay for a few nights while exploring Tahiti!

  • Amazing architecture with great views! Very caring and friendly hosts! If you take a rental car definately and highly recommendable!

  • We had a great experience at Clotilde's house. She and her husband were incredibly welcoming and accommodating (letting us check out much later than usual as we had a evening flight out of Tahiti). Their house is beautiful, perched up high on a hill overlooking the water. The room was clean and comfy. Would highly recommend.

  • This unique place was our best choice for last three days of our honeymoon in Polynesia. Clotilde and Hugo are so nice people! Breathtaking view, amazing house and helpful hosts. There is nothing to say then THANK YOU!!! When you want rent a car this place is highly recommended.

  • We loved staying here! Our hosts were fantastic, very welcoming and friendly. Their house is perched on a steep hill overlooking the gorgeous Tahiti hillside and waters below - just stunning! The pool and jacuzzi are right on the edge, affording a beautiful, relaxing day at the pool and sundowners in the jacuzzi. Thank you for having us!

    The fare Mama iti is located in front of a magnificent white sandy beach between the bays of Cook and Opunohu. On a private estate, with direct access to the beach and the lagoon, ideal swimming. Close to archaeological sites and gliding spots.
    1 bedroom area with 1 double bed, 1 single bed and 1 extra double mattress to be placed on the floor. 1 kitchen corner: dishwasher, coffee maker, rice-cooker, large fridge and gas cooker 4 fires. 1 TV set equipped with TNT 1 Wifi connection 1 deck in front of the fare with pergolas facing the lagoon 1 fare independent bathroom
    Located on the most beautiful coast of Moorea, fare Junette and Mama iti are located in front of a beautiful white sand beach, in Pihaena north of Moorea, between the bays of Cook and Opunohu, PK 14.3 sea side. A small trailer for eating is open for lunch, and sometimes in the evening, the first supermarket is 4 km away in Cook's Bay.
  • First off. The place had the wrong name and the cab driver didn't know where to go. Its not fare mama iti. Its Fare Junette. Luckily, we recognized it from the road. The location was amazing. Turquoise water,mountains, and snorkeling right out front. However, we did not have an altogether good stay. Besides the constant sand flea and ant bites, we were robbed while we slept in the night. We had our things on the extra bed which happened to be by a window and someone reached In and took everything of value including all of our videos and pictures from the trip. We ended of dealing with police and canceled the rest of our bungalow stays since most places are very open air with no screens in there windows as was a lovely place and hopefully in the future they will improve security.

  • We've have luxurious experiences in Moorea in the past but this was the first time we felt like we were able to be more of a part instead of being protected by resort staff. Eric's space was just perfect. It was set up for us to make our own meals, enjoy the water and even had access to two canoes. Each day we got to swim with the fish, stingrays and one morning after a rain we got to swim with the sharks. All right outside our front door. As some review had said, Eric's bungalow may not have towels but when I messaged him about this, he offered to provide three for the duration of our stay. We also asked Eric about grocery stores around the area and he provided us with suggestions of getting/ bringing our fruit over on the ferry from Tahiti if possible but also ran us to the local grocery to grab potable water for drinking.

    Tiffany And Grant2017-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing spot, location is perfect. Crystal clear water on your doorstep. Eric was very friendly and easy to deal with. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Eric was very flexible and helpful. We booked at the very last minute but he made everything easy, took us to the supermarket and offered us a ride to the ferry terminal. The bungalow is simple but well situated, right on a white sand beach with a beautiful coral garden on your doorstep. You can also used canoe for free and discover the amazing views of the bay and the mounts.

  • The beach hut is in a lovely location right next to the white sand beach with clear, warm, blue water. This is the reason to stay here. The accommodation is basic on the inside and cute on the outside. We did not meet Eric or An'so, but met the guy next door briefly. The canoes are great to explore on, but are shared with Fare Junette - the occupants of which did not seem to understand this while we were there. There are also no towels - we were not aware of this and had to use our salty beach towels - lucky we had them. We also slept with the doors and windows shut as there are no screens and also had read a previous guest had been robbed in the night. Fortunately it was not too hot and the fan was sufficient. Would we stay there again - yes, as it is the Tahiti beach experience you are looking for without having to sell your house.

    Peter And Lynn2016-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great experience here. The view was spectacular! The coral reef was breathtaking, and the hut was clean and useful. We felt like we were on our own private beach as there was not really anyone around. We felt close to some attractions and could walk to the Hilton for anything we needed. Eric and his wife were more than accommodating and were available for questions and assistance along the way. Just some bits of information that I didn't expect: 1. there is no air conditioning and it was hot when we were there so it was sticky at night, even with a fan on you 2. The shower and toilet are an external unit to the house. It's private and the outdoor shower is a nice experience but it's dark at night if you need to go to the restroom 3. You are fairly close to the road so you do hear some road noise at night, but it didn't keep us awake at all. Overall, if we went back to Moorea we would stay here again.

  • We loved staying at Fare Mama Iti. The location was right on the edge of crystal blue lagoon which was perfect for swimming in, with a spectacular sun set at night. It had everything needed including a bbq in the beach with a second picnic table and kayaks and a hammock to use as well. Just remember to take your own towels. It was was perfect and exactly as it looks in the picture if not better. We will be back

  • This little bungalow was amazing. I was not disappointed, and was sad to have to leave. I loved being able to walk into the crystal clear blue lagoon every morning, and snorkel with fish 20ft away. Highly recommended over the local resorts.

    Tahiti Airport Loft is a 5 minute drive from the Faaa International Airport and a 10 minute drive from downtown Papeete. Private entrance, fully equipped kitchen which opens into a large living room. Big windows with a view of the lagoon and surrounding fruit trees. There's a queen size day bed in the linking room. Downstairs is 1 large bedroom with king bed and mosquitoe net connected to a beautiful ensuite bathroom.
    The space is very unique, it has an artist touch, big open windows which open to all the trees on the property. It feels like you are in a treehouse. The kitchen is open and a bar connects it to the living area. The entrance has a private deck. The bedroom is private and it opens and connects to the most unique and beautiful bathroom which has a private zen garden.
    The neighborhood is wonderful and super quiet. Considering the proximity to the airport, you can't hear the planes because it is behind a hill. The location is very convenient. 10 minute drive to downtown Papeete and the ferries that go to Moorea. And 10 minutes the other way for a quick swim in the lagoon by the Taapuna surf break.
  • Yee Vonn met us at the ferry dock and drove us through town to the loft . She also took us to the airport at 5:30 am! Plus she made sure we had time to go to the grocery store and a restaurant.

  • Leilani was so communicative. We had to change our plan a few times and she was so receptive and understanding and helpful. Any questions I had she would answer immediately and had someone available nearby to take us to the airport and even make a stop along the way. This place is spacious, nice and cool, cute little geckos running around the place, we loved them. The shower is awesome. Kitchen is great! All the things! I would highly recommend this place! Also super close to the airport which was awesome.

  • Super cool place. We loved the warm and cozy feel it had. You really do feel like you're in a tree house surrounded by all the tropical trees and birds. The outdoor shower and bathroom was great!! Very close and conviennent to the airport if that's what you're looking for. There was Great communication and they were there for all our needs. We would absolutely stay here again the next time we're in Tahiti.

  • Staying at the Tahiti Airport Loft was a wonderful experience. The hosts were very warm and welcoming. The space was much larger than we expected and the layout and design were perfect for relaxing after a long few days of packing and travel. It is very close to the airport but behind a hill so there is no noise from the airport. The neighborhood is quiet, and there is a well stocked market only 5 minute walk down the hill. The kingsize bed downstairs was very comfortable and it stayed nice and cool late into the morning. When we checked out of the loft we felt rested and rejuvenated and ready for our next adventure. We will definitely be recommending this place to friends and family!

  • Leilani's place is very stylish and fun to be in! Offers a pretty nice sunset view, walkable distance to grocery & intercontinental hotel. Easy commute to airport. Leilani, although out of town during stay, was still super accommodating & easy to contact. Highly recommended.

    Liz 2017-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • The loft is just as beautiful as the pictures! We had a few salamander friends that were really cute! Leilani arranged our transportation and even though our flight was delayed 2 hours due to the strike, Leilani kept in contact and the taxi she arranged kept close watch on our flight status. Gorgeous views, comfortable accommodations and the partial outdoor shower was so cool!! We are staying again tonight after we return from Moorea, such a great way to end our Tahitian adventure!!

  • Leilani's place is really cool! We especially loved the bathroom, it was so neat! The beds aren't the most comfy, but were fine for what we needed (1 night stay on arrival to Papeete and 1 night before leaving). There were towels, toiletries, etc for us to use. It is somewhat secluded, so if you rent a car you may have difficulty locating the house on your own. Leilani was kind enough to set us up with a taxi driver that we utilized a lot during our trip. There are BEAUTIFUL views if you take a walk up the hill from the house, but be aware, there are loose dogs, we just ignored them and luckily were fine. There are fruit trees around: star fruit, pomegranates and bananas, so that was rad!! **The downsize was the giant cockroaches. Some were pretty huge (4 inches). And while I didn't mind the cute little geckos/lizards on the walls, one of my friends did. The windows are kept open so they got in that way & at times there were 7-10 of them on the walls. 2 of the beds had netting so we basically slept with them as tight around the bed as possible to keep critters out. One bed did not have netting & it was near the window. My friend got pretty bit up during the night unfortunately, not sure by what. There were also these weird little black worm things on the walls in the bathroom. We just knocked them down and went about our way. There are also a lot of roosters/chickens on the property behind Leilani's, however we all traveled with ear plugs so while we could faintly hear them, we managed to sleep mostly through the crowing. All in all, it was super close to the airport which worked for us and the layout/concept was awesome. If you plan on staying here longer than a night or two, make sure you have basics with you such as soda, water, coffee, snacks, etc. If you're afraid of bugs or lizards, probably not the place for you, especially long term, but the 5 of us women got through it just fine!! Thanks Leilani for being so available before and during our trip and arranging the rides with Eddy!!

  • Leilani's place was great. Just like the photos. She was very accommodating. Would definitely stay again!

  • Maryse’s house was the perfect getaway in moorea. Everything we needed was there and we had such a nice time. Within walking distance to shops. Would need a car or form of transport if you wanted more than that. We relaxed by the pool and ate out on the patio most days. 4 days we’ll never forget. Very clean and accurate to the pictures, I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else

  • Maryse and Alain were wonderful hosts and made us feel like family. Their home is beautiful with amazing, breathtaking views! Their swimming pool is also very, very nice. I highly recommend their accommodations!

  • Maryse and Alain are beyond amazing hosts. There house is outstanding. The view of the lagoon from the bedroom window is straight from a picture book. They went out of there way to make our stay as easy as possible, picking us up from the ferry to dropping us off to rent a scooter. There home is impeccable, even better than the pictures. Super clean, spacious and beautiful. Would recommend to anyone visiting Moorea! So many thanks for such a great stay in French Polynesia!

  • This is the perfect place for a stay on Moorea. Maryse and Alain are the perfect hosts and helped us with everything, from pick-up at the ferry to renting a car. The apartment is exactly the same as the pictures show, or even a bit better. The view in the morning is stunning. If we ever come back to Moorea, what we hope, we definetly will stay here again.

  • Outstanding accommodation. Incredible view from the bedroom. Fabulous hosts, I can’t say enough about their hospitality. Des hotes merveilleux. Exceeded our expectations. Toujours disponible pour nous aider. Merci.

  • Love Love Love Maryse and Alain welcomed me so warm-heartedly at the airport with a Flower-chain and showed me their Home in the Mountain with such a great view on the ocean. The house is furnished according the rules of Feng Shui. That was the reason I felt so relaxed. Every room is so detailed. Beautyfull. Maryse and Alain where so helpfull in any case. You feel the love they share with you. They offer me also to use their Pool, so kind. Thank you for a so quiet and relaxed time. I am so glad to met you. Christine Love Love Love

  • We had a great stay at Maryse & Alain's. It's a beautiful house, with all the amenities you could want, and fantastic views over the north side of the lagoon on Moorea. Maryse & Alain themselves were the consummate hosts, helping us to and from the airport, making plans and generally being available if we needed anything or had questions. We felt most welcome during our stay and were sad to leave.

  • We loved our stay in this gorgeous apartment (absolutely perfect for a couple). The apartment is exactly as described and our hosts went the extra mile by providing additional items to make our stay that much better/easier. There was also a lot of informative brochures and maps in the apartment which meant we could plan our days without having to go into the Tourist Information Office. We were picked up by Damien and shown places where we could shop and eat on the way back to the apartment. The neighbourhood is great with everything you need close by. The communal swimming pool is perfect- particularly during the hot Tahitian days! We will definitely be back and will stay here again. We would most certainly recommend this apartment to any couple. Merci beaucoup Amelia & Damien - you are amazing hosts!

  • The best hosts you can imagine. They picked us up at the Airport 2.00 a.m. On the weekend they drove us around Tahiti and showed us the sights. Beautiful view from the studio, PC and WiFi, 15 minutes walk to bus stop, McD and grocery shop. Our 5 day stay was just perfect. Silvia and Arnold (retired couple from Switzerland)

  • We had a wonderful time in Tahiti! The house is really beautiful and the owners make you feel at "home" in their place. They waited for us at the airport with a nice flower collar and a big smile. Both of them are really special people!

  • Damien picked us up at the ferryport. It was a very warm welcome. On the way to the appartement he explained everything and offered a stop at a market, so we could buy food for our stay. Damien is a very nice person. He organised a lift for us to the airport, since he couldn't do it himself! The appartement is clean and has a stunning sight. The swimming poolis also very clean and nice to swim in. A perfect AirBnb place. We surely would come again. Thanks to Damien and Amélia

  • Amelia and Damien were amazing hosts! This was the best Airbnb stay I've had. They picked us up from the airport and provided us with a local SIM phone which was very helpful for setting up local excursions. They were very friendly and we had dinner with them in downtown Papeete one night. The location was very convenient for us. Close drive to good food, drink store, downtown Papeete, and the beach. I'd recommend!

    Kris & Andrea2014-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Damien met us at the airport, helped us to secure our rental car and led us directly to the apartment. The apartment is lovely, quiet, clean and conveniently located outside of Papeete near several grocery stores and local beaches. Did I mention the view from the apartment is absolutely gorgeous? Well it is! There is a local marina within walking distance that has two cool little restaurants/bars that we went to for drinks one night. WiFi works perfect (using right now while writing this review before we leave) and the apartment really does have everything you'll need for a nice stay. Thanks again Damien and Amelia for the wonderful three days in your apartment! Best regards, Ryan and Kelly USA (Ohio)

  • Damien was an amazing host. He both picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the cruise ship terminal. The view from the apartment was spectacular. We did not rent a car, but as the apartment is several miles out of Papeete and up a hill, I would probably recommend doing so. The marina, several very nice restaurants, groceries, and bus stops are within walking distance.

  • Can't recommend Balcons du lotus highly enough. Damien will look after you and make sure you have whatever you need for your stay. The apartment is nice, clean and the view....

  • We had a pleasant stay at Raiamanu. Close to the airport, 20 euro with a taxi and close to the ferry to Moorea. Bit far from everything but we rented a scooter and for us this location was perfect. Raiamanu wasn't home when we arrived but arranged that we could get in. We were happy with the room with a private bathroom and lots of storage space. Wifi was really good. Hygiene could have been better in bathroom and kitchen but it was not too bad.Don't forget he's a single man with two children. The children are very cute, just too bad we don't speak French.

  • Manu was helpful in letting me stay, so it was good. I had good internet, access to kitchen and had private room with toilet and shower. A few problems on check in, was a bit wrong location on the map, and some bugs that woke me up in the night, and missing some items on check in.

  • Raiamanu is kind ,very nice person. He picked us up in the airport for free. Manu and us chatted a lot in the evening, it's interesting to know the life of Tahitian. In the house there's 2 cute cats, we also played with them.The price is so so reasonable. The only problem is we were bitten by some bugs at night, raining season?

  • Best stay ever!! This guy is awesome! He will welcome you into his family (introduced me to everybody) and tell you everything about french polynesia ( if he don't have to much work you can pay some gasmoney and get a private tour around the island!!). He also enjoy to help with what to do and what not to. On top off all of this he drove me around and picked me up at the different places! Great especially if you are travelling solo. Thanks for the hospitality!!

  • We had a very pleasant stay at Raiamanu his place. He had to go the night we stayed there but he said he would have brought us to the airport if he did not have to go elsewhere. Because he could not drive us he arranged a taxi for us which was very nice of him because we could not call ourselves.

  • Manu's place is close to the airport, it is basic - mattress on floor, no aircon, but really good value for TAhiti. There was a wee problem when I arrived, cos Manu was not there, but I did not have to wait long. And he is an amazing, very sociable guy. I stayed only one night, but he ran me to the airport. Not only that, but when I came back to Tahiti he took a day off work and drove me round the island, for the price of his petrol. I even went to his badminton club. It is not 5-star accommodation in the traditional sense, but it was 5-star hospitality.

  • We enjoyed staying with Raiamanu. It is very conveniently located near the airport. He is a very friendly and helpful hosted and offered us a transfer from the airport and to the ferry. The room was spacious and clean and we would recommend anyone to stay here!

  • Raiamanu was a very good host. He was very nice and kind and also very accommodating. I had some last minute changes and he was able to make them for me but I understand there was a bit of luck involved as well as there was no-one booked for time I wanted, He has a very nice house and is very clean. There is a washing machine and Wi-Fi and filtered water, all of which are a great bonus that come with your fee. I highly recommended staying here as the price is very good for what you get and Raiamanu is such a great host that your stay will be effortless at least as far as your accommodation goes.

  • Clean cosy central place! Raiamanu is very friendly, welcoming and gave us a lift from and to the airport, perfect! Stay here with confidence.

  • The place is perfect, simple with a family vibe, it feels safe and welcoming. Very convenient either for the airport and even papeete town. Raiamanu is the perfect host, and very friendly! You will not get better quality price anywhere else.

  • We only stayed one night with Raiamanu and he gave us a lift to and from the airport which was very helpful (for 1500CFP each way). The room is simple and spacious, definitely worth the price for 1 night. Our only criticism is that it really needs a fan! We both got incredibly hot in the night and even with the balcony fully open it was still boiling. Obviously though this is an easy fix :-) Thanks again for having us!

  • Raiamanu's place was perfect! He was super friendly and his family too! I would definetly recomend this place!! The view was also fantastic!! Oh and it's super close to the airport!!

  • Manu was really helpful and friendly during our stay. His family is also kind and lovely. The house is massive so you have plenty of space.

  • Close to the airport. Nice view. Good Price. Spacious room.

  • Don't hesitate a second if you are looking for a great accomodation and a great host in an amazing place with a stunning view on Moorea! The house is fantastic and super clean, and Raiamanu will do anything to make you confortable and to help you. Top place for a budget price!

  • Great place for a great price. Raiamanu is very friendly and his son is adorable! The room was very spacious with private bathroom. The place is in great location if you rent a car. If you’re just walking like me, prepare for some uphill battles. Very recommendable!

  • Convenient for a night's stay close to the airport. Our host was great, giving us a lift to get dinner and made us welcome. Room is simple but comfortable. Airport pick up / drop off can be arranged and worked great for us.

  • It took us a little to find it but we were happy with our stay.

  • We had a great one night stay at Tea's house. Her family is very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Overall we enjoyed the time we spent at Tea's house. Thank you for the delicious breakfast!

  • Tea and her husband were very approachable and quick in reply. They came to pick me up from the ferry terminal and organized an airport drop off for a good price. Very clean room, walking distance to cafes/ restaurants, the park for running is out opposite the house. Room was very clean with lots of towels provided and an amazing ac (I needed it so badly after my islands hopping). Thank you for accommodating me!

  • Transportation from and to the airport was efficient. Tea welcomed me to her home even though I was only there for 5 hrs. The air conditioned room was a nice plus. Good place to stay by the airport but not in walking distance. I would recommend staying at Tea’s House.

  • Great place for something close to town or the airport. More of a budget accomodation. I was impressed! Helpful and friendly. Bonus was the great wifi. The place was clean with air conditioning as well. They offer transfer services if needed. Cheers!!

  • Wonderful host!

  • It was such a great experience. It was my husbands first time traveling internationally and he had a bit of culture shock but being here in this home helped him adjust quickly. The a/c was great, bed was comfortable, bathroom next to our room and the hospitality was endless. Tea and her husband went above and beyond to accommodate us. I recommend this place for all travelers. Mahalo again!!

  • Tea house is one of the the warmest Airbnb experience we had so far. Feeling like at home with the brilliant family and amazing human being . House is super clean and super fresh sheets. Super tasty fruits on the breakfast! Tea arranged with her husband Henry a pick up for us even at night from the airport and to the airport, very convenient and recommended!!Thank you very much for everything! Tea, you are the best! Happy new year!!

  • We really liked our stay at this very nice home. Excellent place to stay for a couple of nights to explore Papeete. We got all the help and advice we needed. Really good experience for starting our trip in French Polynesia!
