Haapiti Beautiful fully equipped house, beach facing the motus
average rating of 4.875 based on 32 reviews

The covered porch was our favorite!

  • 5 of 5

For us, it was not just about the house, but our host Caroline, who was so gracious and friendly, and helped us plan our stay with quality tours and made us fee at home.

The house is a short walk from an amazing beach with white sand and lots of wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed swimming and snorkeling there, specially with the sharks and rays, which I said I would never do before arriving there! We used a kayak from the property to get to the reefs.

We also went to a couple of delicious restaurants by bike, just a few km away. The grocery store is small but have baguettes, salads and drinks.

As for the house, the bed is comfortable, the air conditioner helped us get a great night of sleep, the kitchen had all we needed to prepare meals and we spent tons of time out on the great patio.

Highly recommend Caroline's place and the tour from her husband's (Jo) company. Nice people who cherish where they live and respect the environment.

Amazing location, perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Caroline’s villa for about two weeks in July 2016. Caroline booked a car for us with a very nice discount and answered all our questions we had before arrival. Villa is about 30 min drive from the airport at Sunset beach on the best part of the island. Villa is on gated property so it is very safe. It is less populated part of the island with one of the best beaches. After our early morning arrival Caroline let us in as soon as previous occupants moved away (around 10 am) so we had a breakfast at the patio and hit the beach. There is a very nice sandy beach with very shallow water which is perfect for kids and has some shade from coconut palm trees. Villa has 3 sit-on kayaks which is priceless: we kayaked to the spot (about 10 min trip) where you can swim with black tip sharks (safe-they totally ignore you) and sting rays (they come to you so you can pet them). You can also go across the channel to “private motu” where you can see perfect corals from kayak (too shallow for safe snorkeling) or two motus on the left (10-15 min trip). Don’t swim to the channel because there is some boat traffic and very strong current. Caroline will explain you everything.

Villa has everything you need for your stay and is close to grocery shop (about 1 min drive by car) so you can always get fresh baguettes for breakfast. There is a scuba diving center on the beach but I dove more with Christian from Fun Dive.

Word of advice: we stayed 4 more days on Tahiti after Moorea and it was too long. Tahiti is so different from Moorea – there is heavy traffic in Papeete and in general it is a busy island. I would prefer to stay 2 more days on Moorea and only 2 days on Tahiti.

I think we will come back one day and maybe stay forever…

Thank you Caroline for the great time we had!

Greg and Family

Great house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This a really nice house in a great location with all the facilities you need to have a great time in French Polynesia. The beautiful beach is very close and is ideal for children. The kayaks provided allow you to explore the islands close by in the lagoon, as well as visit snorkelling sites and the sharks and rays. Shops nearby, no need for a car. Watching the dolphins at the nearby Intercontinental for free is another fun outing.

The owner is very helpful and lives next door. All in all a fantastic place to stay.

Perfect place for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are from S.Korea, 4 people (parents, two grown-up children), and stayed 4 days here. Caroline gave me detailed descriptions on how to find her property since I was renting a car, and arranged me for car rental (including free pick-ups from the airport to rental shop) which was quite cheaper than normal prices.

We enjoyed free kayaks, and could visit the place where normal snorkeling trip would stop for shark and rays feeding. Caroline will let you know the place and it's easy to find. I also enjoyed Scuba diving with Scubapiti which is located just right in front of the property. As I know, they are the only shop that haven't participated in shark feeding, so yes, they are eco-friendly and also very friendly.

Caroline and Joseph were great hosts, and we thank for their sincere hospitality that they've shown to us.

Nice house in very good location

  • 4 of 5

Caroline was a wonderful host and knew all the best restaurants on the island. the house was only a couple hundred meters from a very nice beach. the house was very functional with lots of extras like table tennis, petonk, kayaks and more. This is a nice place for a family up to 5 in a great location.

Perfect holiday home and beach!

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 4 -two 60 something parents and and two 20 something 'kids'! (our daughter and her fiance). We loved our 10 days at this spacious, very clean and well equipped bungalow. The beautiful, sandy beach was very close to the house and one would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful beach on the island. With the included kayaks, we were able to go out to snorkel with the sharks and sting rays and to go exploring between the 2 motus -snorkeling there was amazing -just like swimming in someone else's aquarium!! The house opens out into a lovely 'garden room' where we were able to BBQ and eat most of our meals, read and relax.

Caroline was amazing from the day we made our booking -friendly, organized and caring. She organized our car rental and ferry transfers and suggested restaurants, grocery shops and outings and was right next door if we needed anything. Caroline, thank you so much for all you did to make our holiday great.

In short, this was a perfect location and house for our foursome. We would definitely love return. SOON!
