Moorea Villa Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 1 mezzanine, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8
Welcome to the Robinson's Cove Villas, located along a small private beach in the heart of the splendid island of Moorea, 30 minutes away from Tahiti. Houses are rare in the neighborhood, and untouched nature is everywhere waiting for you. Our beach Villas are in an exceptional site, right by the lagoon in Opunohu bay (the most beautiful bay in all Polynesia according to yachtsmen!), surrounded by breathtaking peaks and by a luxurious nature famous for its untouched and original beauty. It is in this surrounding that historical films about Polynesia are regularly shot (Namely 'The Bounty' in 1984 with Mel Gibson, etc). The largest private yachts anchor frequently not far from the Villa, as 'Robinson's Cove' offers complete tranquility and an excellent shelter, it did for Captain James Cook who discovered the bay and was the first to moor there in 1777; nothing has changed since that time!
Car:: Car: Mini van TOYOTA (A/C, 7 seats) is available or FORD Sedan (A/C, 5 seats), under a rent and drive package. Please ask for conditions and details by email.
Snorkeling / Diving / Lagoon:: Snorkeling: The beach in front of the villas is on a small undewater plateau where you can walk for about 20 meters (60 ft). Then there is a drop off 25 meters (80 ft) deep. This drop off, home of many sea species, lets you snorkel in full safety among the fish only a few dozen yards from the Villas. There are no big waves on our beach, because we are protected in the bay, so this is excellent for kids and for snorkeling!
Diving: There are many scuba diving centers in Moorea, Alix our caretaker will help you. Moorea is famous for his diving spots.
Excursions on the Lagoon: Whether a simple ride to discover the lagoon or an encounter with whales and dolphins, or waterskiing at sunset, many service providers can pick you up by boat directly at our Villas.
Power Boats: It is possible to rent small power boats with or without a license, for one or several days.
Activities with our partners:: Horseback Riding: There is a ranch not far (about 10 minutes by car) in the Opunohu Valley for memorable rides in spectacular scenery made of peaks and lagoons. 4x4 and Quad bike: For those who prefer the comfort of a motor vehicle, a discovery of the hidden paths and breathtaking peaks can be done in a Jeep or in Quad ATV motorcycle. Hiking: On the mountainside or throughout the tropical jungle, there is nothing like hiking, but it is safer to hire a guide! Marathon: Marathons, triathlons, etc. are regularly organized by the Te Moorea Sports Association. Golf: The new Moorea Golf Course is 15 minutes drive away, near the airport. Spa : Several Spas are located in Moorea Island, including Helen'Spa, who created the first Tahitian Spa in 1999, ranked among the most beautiful spas in the world.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Aloha Denis from Hawaii,
I am sorry for not responding to you sooner. Louise and I are back home and settled in. It was very hard getting on the ferry to leave Moorea. Our time spent there was one of the best vacations we have had together in the last 30 years. Your place is a very special and one that will remain with us for years to come. The evenings spent on the lanai listening to water lap on the rocks put us into a different state of mind. It has been a very long time since we haven't been interupted by a cell phone call or had to answer e-mails at the drop of a hat. Alix was outstanding! The only time we saw her was when we needed her help and then there she was. I have passed Robinson's Cove on to a young couple who are friends of one of my managers. They are being married next year and I have recomended them to stay with you. They are from New York so you may hear from them.
Best of luck to you and your team.
Barry & Louise
