As you read the reviews below, they all say the same thing; best vacation ever in the best house on the island. We completely agree with those other comments. We loved our9-day stay. 7 of us shared this best house on the island. Tiare greeted us when we arrived and took care of us throughout our stay. The time to return our cars and catch the ferry didn't work out for us so Tiare made a call to a friend at Avis and everything worked out great. Everyone on the island loves Tiare and you will too. The house was cleaned beautifully for us and our blood pressures went from 140/100 to 30/10 (kidding about the 30/10).
We fed and petted wild stingrays, sitting in the water just 10 feet from our beautiful shore. We canoed and snorkeled everywhere, everyday. The villa has it's own canoe's for you. We had a "marriage renewal of vows" service on the shoreline at sunset. It was great. We went scuba diving with TopDive swimming with sharks but enjoyed coming home to our villa. Ok, there were a few chickens in everyone's yards but they added to the ambiance of being in Moorea. There are cattle that cross the road in front of you while you're driving too. Oh, there are millions of potholes in the only 2 lane road around the island. Just get use to it. Chase the chickens away and they'll be gone for a couple of days. Make sure to rent a car at Avis. It's expensive but you have to do it to see the island. The Milky Way is so clear at nights. It's unbelievable. It's ok to drink the water. Get lots of XPF (Francs) before you arrive at the villa. The taxi's and vans at the Tahiti airport only work for cash. 3500 XPF's from the airport to the ferry for the use of a van. Almost all of the food stores on the island deal with cash only. Remember, most stores are closed between 12:00-2:00pm. The 3 banks are about 30-40 minutes away from the villa and the banks are practically next door to each other. Ok, you're on vacation so the food at the restaurants is higher. But, load up at the Champion market, close to the Ferry dock where the beef is cheaper. The local restaurants don't look like much from the outside but their food is great. The Mayflower was very snooty to us. I'm boycotting "The Mayflower" and telling all of my friends.
We will definitely return to this wonderful place. Enjoy your stay. Thank you Tiare for a wonderful vacation.
