“Beautiful Unique Home”
Reviewed October 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My husband and I wanted a special place to stay that would be more local and unique than the over-water bungalow places in all the pictures. This is not a resort experience, it's a beautiful home in the middle of an out-of -the-way natural area and people should know this before booking. Other reviewers mentioned bugs but we hardly had an mosquitoes when we were there and actually found them worse on Moorea. Exploring the town, getting our own groceries, buying local fresh fish, and eating on the expansive deck were wonderful. I loved the open concept, and tree in the middle of the house! This is a truly lovely place and we had a real getaway here. We hope to be able to come back with the kids in the future, they would love it. However, if you want your bed turned down, white tablecloths and a mango mint on your pillow then this might not be a good fit for you.

“Don't stay here.”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

The house was very difficult to reach. The paved road ended and we passed a sign saying, "No hired cars beyond this point." The dirt road had huge holes! The house itself was FULL of mosquitos. There is no ceiling over the central room, so you can't keep them out. If you set any food out on the kitchen counter, it was immediately covered with ants.
It had rained and the beds were wet to the touch. The mattresses were so bad, you could feel the springs with your hand.
I would not recommend this house to anyone!

Very sorry to read this review. The guest arrived during an extremely wet period so the humidity was through the roof. For those unfamiliar with the tropics, this can admittedly be a shock. Nothing was "wet" however, just very humid.

The dirt road that goes up the river towards the house IS full of pot-holes without a doubt. The people who live on that stretch have children who play outside and are perfectly happy to have cars drive slowly past their houses. We always ask visitors to be respectful of this and to keep it to a snail's pace.

The "central room" is an open air courtyard with a tree growing through the middle. This feature is one of the most interesting (and usually appreciated) design aspects of our tropical home.

We don't have aircon and are clear about that in our description of our house. This guest left the house after deciding that the humidity was too high for them. They didn't let us or the manager (who is just next door and very available) know they had left and after leaving demanded reimbursement. The time slot they had asked for was at the peak of high season. We offered to compensate the guest with free stay for a future trip which they refused.

“Out of the Hotel Zone”

Incredible experience to be away from the tourist experience into the local life! The house is beautifully handcrafted with an immense deck with a hammock to hang in. You look across the green lawn and can pick flowers and fruit--wild pineapples! It's an amazing place for surfers of course, but even snorkelers can have so much fun here. You can walk down the dirt road across the bridge and along the edge of the lagoon, cross the little stream with water lilies floating and snorkel for hours mesmerized by the coral and fish. You can hike or take a boat to the end of the island or hike up the river. The locals are really nice, some speak English but most speak French. So much to explore, so much to see!
