This very exclusive Villa overlooking the crystal blue waters of the lagoon offers incredible romantic sunsets as well as a lot of privacy making it the perfect spot for both honeymooners and families.

The villa accomodation includes 2 bedrooms with air conditioning, 1 bathroom, a modern full kitchen fit for a chef, a living room and a large covered terrace-lanai overlooking the lagoon.

The interior of this luxury wooden built house is particularly roomy thanks to a cathedral ceiling with a spacious living room and one of the bedrooms opened into it allowing exclusive views right from your king sized bed. The house has been completely redesigned and remodelled in 2017 with maximum comfort and relaxation in mind.

This piece of paradise is very much in demand. So book early in advance your South Pacific vacation and contact us today : with the pleasure of having you as our guests at VILLA VAHIMANUI!

Tahiti, the port of entry of French Polynesia is linked by non stop scheduled flights to Los Angeles, NZ, Japan, Hawaii, Australia and with one stop to Paris and most European cities. From Tahiti, a 45-minute-flight takes you to Bora Bora.

The internal airline company in French Polynesia is AIR TAHITI. There are 9 flight connections per day between Tahiti and Bora Bora.

The plane from Tahiti lands in Bora Bora on Motu Mute, an offshore islet.Then a free shuttle brings you across the lagoon to VAITAPE, Bora Bora's main village. On the wharf in Vaitape, a dedicated taxi driver showing your name will wait for you and drive you to the house (the taxi is paid by me). At the house, my local correspondents will welcome you and give you the key of the car and show you around the house.


Because there is no public transport service on Bora Bora, you need to rent a car to be independant on the island during your stay . It is essential to go shopping, to go to the restaurant or to visit Bora Bora. Since the car rental companies are very expensive on the island, we offer a car rental service exclusively dedicated to the guests of the Villa (5 seats/automatic gearbox/comprehensive insurance/air conditioning). The rates are unbeatable! Way below the rates of rental companies on the island.

Feel free to ask for this service when booking your stay!

5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Villa Vahimanui for a week at the end of August 2018. Communication from the owner was fantastic, he answered all the questions and even gave some recommendations of places to eat etc. We took advantage of the car hire service Pierre offers and had a little Hyundai to zip around the island. He organises the initial taxi to the Villa and back to the wharf when you leave and the hosts were there to meet us, help with the luggage and show us around. They were absolutely lovely!

The house itself was beautifully clean and exactly like the pictures. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking your meals and the appliances were very new including an induction cook top and a dishwasher! The main lounge looks out over the lagoon and the deck is off to the side. The bed was comfy for us (it is a firm bed) and we didn't overheat due to the air conditioning in the bedrooms. We even had our own laundry to do a mid-holiday clothes wash.

A few things that may affect some people (didn't worry us hence the 5 stars but to consider) - you do have to go up 4 sets of stairs to this villa. The location was sheltered from the trade winds but you are on the opposite side to Matira Beach which is the main public beach in Bora. There are no restaurants near here, the closest is in town so you do need a car to get around. There are geckos that eat the bugs and make their cheeky noises as well as roosters which is typical for tropical islands. If you're a light sleeper you may need ear plugs.

All in all it was a fantastic stay for us and we loved relaxing on the deck with the perfect views. Magic spot, great house and lovely owner and hosts. Highly recommend!

The condo was awesome. We are packing up to leave today and I am already planning to come back. The owner gave us all the information we needed. The taxi was waiting for us when we arrived. The hosts met us and helped with luggage, gave us tour of condo so we would know where everything was. The view is gorgeous, the furnishings comfortable. There are steep stairs but we were able to navigate an we are in our 50's. I highly recommend this Condo.

The property was more amazing in person than I saw in pictures. A must stay and recommendation!

  • 5 of 5

The overall stay was priceless. The cleanliness of the home was superb. The care providers of this property were very professional, kind and generous. Very thorough in making sure we were comfortable, transportation was available and answered all questions we had. I really like the owner and his team for assisting in making this vacation one we will never forget. We enjoyed the view, the hospitality and the warm welcome and see you next year farewell. I really enjoyed and so did my better half, the cake that was special order upon my request to celebrate her birthday. Thank you all. I would definitely recommend this as a place to reside if you ever visit Bora Bora.

Simply Amazing

  • 4 of 5

This home had just about everything you needed to make it feel just like home. Clean, well appointed with a view that I still am having dreams about. The longer I stayed, the more it felt like home. I cooked quite a few meals and the kitchen had everything that I needed to facilitate that. Pierre and the amazing couple (Nathalie and Bartholomew) that he utilizes to manage the property are all wonderful and quick to address questions and issues. The home is directly across the lagoon from the airport so if not too busy out-you can catch some arrivals and departures :-)! Make sure to reserve Pierres rental car -it is a wonderful aide and fun to drive. The view, the view, the view-enough cannot be said about the view.

The four stars (instead of five) are for very minor issues (which would not preclude me from staying here again):

-There has already been mentioned the climb from the parking pad to the home (it is four sets of stairs-so if that is a problem for you be aware),

-Bring bath linen. There were 2 sets of beach towel-like towels in the unit (no face or hand towels). Glad I had prepared,

-Don't know if late March is typically very hot/humid but it certainly was the week we were there (Mar 26-31). Both bedrooms are air conditioned and work extremely well-so there is that relief. But the main area which is where you want to be is not air-conditioned and receives all the gloriousness of the sun midday. The living area and bath become extremely warm and humid even with the fans going at all times. Mornings and evenings are pure heaven though.

-We did not have TV in either bedroom (master wasn't working and not one in the second bedroom). Not a biggie but in the heat of the day-it would have been nice to have.

All in all, we had a fantastic stay and would certainly come back again to “Villa Vahimanui”! It was a quiet, relaxed week with access to as much or little as we wanted. Bora Bora is amazingly gorgeous! Thanks so much Pierre for hosting us! Hope to see you again soon!

Owner's Response: Dear Denise, thank you very much for your nice comments! towels: we provide 2 large bath towels per person and a beach towel but it is always possible to get additional ones if needed. Just ask! As mentioned to you upon arrival, the TV receiver in the bedroom was out of order (we receive a new one at the end of this week) but the TV receiver and the TV in the living room work perfectly well, we have just verified that. You should have asked Nathalie and Barthélémy, they would have helped you. They both are at the disposal of our guests and they do their utmost to provide the best experience to our guests. We are happy to see that you enjoyed the house, its amenities, the views and all the activities that Bora Bora offers. Warm regards. Pierre

Very clean place, and the owner is very responsive. He is patient with questions. The view is amazing. The convenience of the car rental and the fact that he arranges for your pick and drop off is much appreciaited. There are screens on the windows, so it is fun to keep them open. the air conditioning was a real plus in Febuary!

Wonderful location and home. Kitchen well organized and appointed. Appliances new and very nice. Charming house with unbelievable views. Stairs a bit of a climb but not a problem as they are well maintained. Air conditioned bedrooms almost too cool. Evening breeze is very comfortable on deck or inside home. Immaculate! Natalie and husband very well organized and responsive to questions. Had no problems. Take advantage of the car rental offer. It holds 5 people and some luggage. Great convenience. Host responsive and very gracious sharing info and offering helpful tips for getting settled in. We loved it.
