The place to stay in French Polynesia
my husband and I stayed for two weeks. We could not have been happier. Tamara was always available for questions, perhaps able to take you for a trip to town just to shop or go to grocers. She taught you how to make local cuisine. We stayed in the bungalow closest to the beach. How awesome to eat breakfast or dinner overlooking the beautiful water. Some days I just wanted to kick back and read, and many others I would snorkel with the stingrays and the beautiful colored fish. Such an awesome sight!! We can't wait to return. Will be back within this next year. We highly recommend this place, and Moorea over all the other islands we visited in French Polynesia. Hope you go and I know you will enjoy your stay.
Best Location on the island!
Staying here was far better than any resort experience could have been and it was only a fraction of the cost of the Sofitel, just a short walk down the beach from here. The location was great - an easy bike ride into Maharepa and Tamara helped us arrange pick-up service for a rental car, dinner and back to the ferry. She was a gracious, friendly and helpful hostess. The beach bungalow was perfect with amazing views and everything we needed to cook simple meals. The guest lounging areas are so beautiful and comfortable and a walk out of the front gate puts you directly into the water. We enjoyed using the provided snorkeling gear and kayaks everyday. We could not have imagined anything more perfect than the accommodations here and the helpfulness of the owner.
Honeymoon in Paradise
We stayed for a week at Tamara's property for the first week of our honeymoon and can't wait to get back there! The pictures barely do the property justice....it honestly is the best snorkeling spot on the entire island! The location is ideal, as it is quiet and secluded yet close enough to shops and another resort. Tamara was an amazing host and made us feel like we were part of her family. The bungalows have everything you need for your island get-away. I suggest stopping by roadside stands for fruit and fish- it will save you money and is of wonderful quality. Make sure you bring enough sunscreen, as it is very expensive on the islands! Thank you, Tamara, for making our honeymoon a trip we'll never forget!
The place is exquisite, and our stay was wonderful. We were of course sorry not to have been able to get to know the owner better, as she was away, but her replacement was a local Polynesian who was great. She went way beyond the norm to make us feel welcomed, almost as family. We were amazed how much effort she put in to keep the place running, despite still working her regular job. It seemed she was working to keep the gardens beautiful every time we looked. She cooked us some great traditional meals, organized "family" gatherings with her friends and us, helped us with transportation, and even taught us to play the ukelele. Of course, we highly recommend her place, and the free bikes, snorkeling gear, and kayaks were especially important to us, and were used daily (we never really felt we had to rent a car, so the bikes were our only transportation for almost a month). The lagoon is right outside the "front door" with awesome snorkeling, and the sunrises over Tahiti made every morning special. The pictures here tell everything you need to know about the facilities, which were grand. We especially loved our "outdoor" kitchen since we cooked most of our own meals for the month we were there. All of this made this one of our best vacations.
Lovely beach and hospitality
The bungalow was a lovely place to stay as it was right on the beach and in a great location (very close to shops and restaurants). Tamara was an excellent hostess - extremely helpful and friendly. It was wonderful to have access to the bikes and be right on the water. I would definitely stay here again.
great place and perfect location
my husband and i spent 4 nights in the bungalow right in front of the ocean. we really enjoyed our stay and are thinking already about going back there next year. the location is perfect, one of the most beautiful (and less crowded) beaches in moorea just steps from the property, and the property itself is lovely and quiet, beautiful and unique. it looks like on the listing pictures. and we loved the owner tamara, who is very caring and helpful at any time, and she made some amazingly delicious quiches and tartes.... you feel like home there, and we highly recommend this place and would always go back there again. a rental car is very useful if you stay at this place. thank you tamara for everything! see you next year in moorea.
