PRIVATE VILLA ON OPUNOHU BAY, BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF BAY, OCEAN & MOUNTAINS!

Moorea Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms 1 king, 1 queen, 1 trundle bed; 1 full bathroom (sleeps 8)

Everything you've heard about Tahiti is true. The air is soft and sweet. The breeze is warm. The waters are blue. The nights are filled with romance. Head to the beach where the sand caresses your toes and the water is always warm.

You can easily enjoy yourself in the comfort and privacy of your own island home. Forget crowded hotels and noisy resorts.

Relax. The surf beckons. The palms whisper, 'Unwind, layback and be happy.' Gentle breezes blow softly across your face. The fragrance of flowers lingers. Time loses all meaning. The waves sparkle. You don't have to do anything, but enjoy.

Fare Hamara is a large, affordable two bedroom villa located on Opunohu Bay on the island of Moorea. You are only a short hop via air or catamaran to Papeete, with its shopping and other island attractions on the neighboring main island of Tahiti.

Renters of Fare Hamara get a discount from Avis.

Hard to beat!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 weeks at Fare Hamara during the "rainy season" but lucked out with fantastic weather (one full rain day and a few sprinkles the rest of our stay). The house is spacious and the views are lovely.
Jacques is the best part. He is so very helpful, he picked us up at the ferry terminal and took us grocery shopping! We shared some drinks on the deck to say thanks!
We walked to the beautiful, pristine beach almost everyday (we rented a car for the 2nd week of our stay only- go Avis)
The bathroom is huge and there are plenty of towel racks to dry swimsuits. Great showers!
Yes, there are geckos inside and out but they are after mozzies so we welcomed them! We finally figured out we needed repellent when we were outside in the mornings and evenings. The itch didn't last long like the ones in the Midwest. We also saw a few wasps and plantation bugs, but it is the tropics!
My friend and I hate air conditioning and loved the ceiling and portable fans. We were never too hot. Yes, the driveway is steep and a bit bumpy but go slow and steady and even the weakest rental car will make it up.
There are NO neighbors, other than Jacques and you will not hear him. The roosters weren't as bad as I've experienced in Central America but I still brought earplugs.
We loved Les Tipaniers for paddleboarding, Chez Fifi for crepes, Eva Perles for bling and Moorea Yacht Club for excellent food & drink!
I would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you Jacques, Mary and Bob.

Wonderfully Serene

  • 4 of 5
The house was beautiful, nicely decorated, very well equipped with everything that one may need during the course of the visit, quiet (except for the roosters) and very spacious. It does not have air conditioning but the many fans and windows everywhere provide a nice cool breeze at night and the place was surprisingly pleasant during the day. The bathroom was amazing and a blast to spend time in (you'll know what I mean once you see it). The wrap-around deck was perfect for hanging out on in the early mornings and evenings. The views were spectacular (we even saw dolphins swimming in the bay below us). The property is very private and in a nice location up a hill (the path up to the house from the road is a little rough so take it easy with the rental car). But there is no traffic noise and no neighbours to get bothered by. The owners were very easy to deal with and quick to respond to e-mails and inquiries. The caretaker, Jacques, was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. He is basically a walking information guide and knows a lot about the island. If he can't provide you with valuable information (which I highly doubt), then the signed guest book in the house is filled with recommendations as to where to eat and where to go for excursions and such. Overall, the place is fantastic and we will definitely be staying here again on our next visit.

Really get away in Fare Hamara

  • 5 of 5
The location is great with stunning views of the surrounding island and Oponohu Bay. The house is centrally located on the island (you can only get so far from anything considering it take roughly 90 minutes to drive around the whole island). If you drive 15 to 20 minutes in either direction you will hit the local villages, resorts, supply stores, and centers of activity. There is a public beach with good snorkeling and picnic areas.
The house is great as well with all the things you might need to be comfortable. BBQ, oven, stove, microwave, etc are all there for your convenience.
For activities and recommendations, just ask Jacques (the caretaker) or the guest book which has plenty of reviews and good suggestions for keeping busy.
If busy isn't your thing, pack plenty of reading materials and just hang out on the deck in the sun.

Cant go wrong with an extended stay at Fare Hamara.

Dream Home

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay at Fare Hamara was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental. It was a beautiful property, clean and centrally located on the island. The photos did indeed reflect the property's appearance and amenities. The owner as well as the caretaker answered our many questions and provided helpful advice about what to do and what to expect on our first trip to French Polynesia. We loved Albert's ATV tour, the Lagoonarium where you swim with black tip sharks, and though expensive, highly recommend the Polynesian show at the Tiki Village. Also, even though most of the tour companies will pick you up, rent a car to get around the island. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back sometime. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Wonderful Stay at Fare Hamara

  • 5 of 5
My husband and i recently stayed at Fare Hamara for one week. Right from the get go the owners were great to deal with. They even held the week for me while i got my flights sorted out. The property was stunning! The view from the deck was the absolute best way to end the day.

The onsite caretaker Jacques was awesome and he was amazing to deal with as well, even emailed us before our week to touch base and see if we needed anything (we were arriving on Sunday and everything is closed on Sunday). When we arrived he walked us through the house and took the time to explain everything to us that we really didn't need to bug him for most of the week. (although we felt very comfortable that if we had needed to ask him anything he would be more then willing to help).

We had an unfortunate wasp invasion during our stay which made it difficult to enjoy the beautiful deck during the hottest time of the day, however we found that we were out exploring most of the time during this time period so it wasn't an issue for us. Jacques hooked us up with a can of Raid and that turned out to be a lot of help. By the time we got home to enjoy the sunset, the wasps were not an issue at all.

One of the things we loved most was learning more about how Bob and Mary acquired the property. They have a binder with information about the island and themselves. it added such a nice personal touch to our vacation.

We couldn't believe that we had all that space to ourselves for a very reasonable price. You would be crazy to stay at one of the resorts over Fare Hamara, you get way more space and seclusion and a much MUCH better view. LOVED every minute and would go back in a heart beat. Thank you Bob and Mary for letting us share your amazing home, and thank you Jacques for all of your help. We just fell in love with your property and feel very lucky and blessed to have stayed here.
