This was our favorite vacation rental by far! The master bedroom and deck are amazing. The house is gated off from everything but the water so no worries about kids running off We used the complimentary kayaks every morning to go see dolphins, we rode the bikes all over the island and jumped off the deck into the water daily. The house had everything we needed to cook, play and relax. Can't wait to go back
Possibly the most perfect setting in all of Moorea, La Maison de Moorea met or exceeded our expectations in every way. Pictures don't do it justice. The reviews other guests have provided before us were very accurate, and gave us a good picture of what to expect. This is a tasteful home, with countless well thought out touches. The porch, for example, has sliding glass doors on the eastern end, which block the wind, so that you can sit comfortably on the porch, enjoying the beauty, even on days when the wind (typically from the east) is a little strong. There's a shaded area adjacent to the house entry, perfect for parking the car if it happens to be raining (not a big problem in September; it only rained during the day once while we were there. Karine and her husband are very responsive hosts; we had needed a wrench to adjust the bike seats and they responded immediately. The arrival time of our flight was early a.m., and the house wasn't ready till noon, but they arranged for us to be picked up by taxi at the ferry and let us drop our luggage, change and freshen up at our host's office in Maharepa, where we entertained ourselves easily until our host's wife picked us up there and took us to the house. The checkin process is a little elaborate, we had to initial a very detailed multipage inventory and you have to give her a substantial cash deposit in US dollars, all of which we would have loved to skip so we could get busy unpacking and relaxing. Don't let it, or the warnings about possibly paying extra for the airconditioning/electricity usage, put you off. We chose not to use the AC (we preferred the tropical breezes!) but did use the other appliances freely, without exceeding the electricity allotment. Resources are expensive in Moorea so being respectful of usage is the right thing to do. We loved our time there, hated to leave. The kitchen is adequately outfitted for cooking, which is important to me. The wifi was not super super fast but perfectly good for texting beautiful pix to our jealous friends back home, and we had no trouble connecting to it. Favorite thing of all -- taking the kayaks out on calm mornings and looking at the truly amazing fish in the water just offshore. Be sure to shop at the market across the street and take out dinner from the 'roulotte' who comes there (food truck) at least once. Mooreans were the most gracious people of any island we've ever visited, and our hosts were no exception. Thanks for sharing a lovely home!
My husband and I loved the home. It had beautiful views, the house was well set-up and beautiful and and we were so close to everything we needed. The Snorkeling was the best right off of the back patio as we saw so many fish and other marine life. The Market right across the street was wonderfull, and if you needed more, the one in Maharepa was in walking distance. There was so much to do on the Island and at the home that we did not have the time to see and take in everything, and we'd love to come back as soon as we can. Plus Karine is great at helping you out with whatever you need. I would love to come back and I highly recommend the home.
We stayed for ten nights. We enjoyed lounging for hours on the deck, taking the kayaks out in the morning and evenings and riding the bicycles into town. Having the grocery store and 2 restuarants nearby was a bonus. The owners were very helpful in arranging taxis and they were also very responsive to the minor issues that popped up. For the price, it was a good deal; but we feel compelled to point out a few things that you should be aware of. First, you are provided an allowance for air conditioner, if exceeded you must pay. We used the air for eight of ten nights and paid $65 USD, this seemed high since we conserved use, we felt this was due to filters that were not properly maintained, Second, there is only air conditioning in the master bedroom; the other rooms have fans and we managed fine but this may not be acceptable to some - the dormer upstairs only usable if you can take the heat. Third, there is a lot of traffic noise throughout the night, especially bad for the rooms with fans only and windows open.. The beds are not very comfortable, the furniture in the living room is rock hard. I feel bad being so critical, because the owners were so nice, but I think others considering this place should know the possible downsides so that they can decide if it is the right place for them.
Our family planned a 15-day Christmas holiday on Moorea. We were fortunate to find this wonderful private ocean front villa that was roomy enough to host our family of five. While the deck, private beach, and views are all you really need, the villa was equipped with everything else to make the stay easy. We were able to easily cook (or barbeque) our meals. We almost exclusively used the outdoors dining set, too. Having Remi's market across the street was such a treat. The kids walked over to get baguettes every day.
Waking up to the view from the master bedroom was spectacular. We would continue our day with fresh coffee on the deck. What a life!
Our 16 yr old twin boys enjoyed having the bikes to ride to town and found the snorkeling out front delightful.
The kayaks were awesome! We all spent hours out in the kayaks watching the sealife. Having the reef out in the distance to break the ocean waves was great. The private beach water was calm and shallow - making kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, and lounging in the water easy. We've been to many other tropical vacation destinations and our kids (especially our 11 year old daughter) are reluctant to spend much time in the ocean water. We couldn't get them out of the water on this vacation!
The two outdoor showers were great. It made it easy to rinse off all our scuba and snorkeling gear, as well as ourselves.
Our daughter spent hours on the deck reading or in the water feeding fish and crabs and collecting sea cucumbers. Who needs to be inside when you have this for your backyard?!
We chose not to rent a car, but Karine was very helpful in connecting us with a taxi. Tiare was our "driver". She not only got us where we needed to be, but she was a wealth of information.
Mosquitos were plentiful on our visit. Our daughter was bitten on her eyelid the third day of our trip and her eye was swollen shut. Augustin came right away, evaluated her and we were able to get a prescription. He also brought us electrical bug repelent devices. What a difference that made!
This was the most relaxing vacation we've had. The owners, Karine and Augustin, defintely helped make it that way. Not only were they helpful and responsive, but they were warm and welcoming. The villa is well maintained, well equipped and the location is perfect.
La Maison de Manoa is a true gem and a rare find in this tropical paradise. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you, Karine & Augustin!
Sometimes you get lucky, you might even win the lottery, but finding this villa is even better. The house sits on its own private beach in Moorea and is a dream come true. It is perfectly positioned with restaurants, a grocery, a general store, and the largest shopping district on Moorea only a short walk from the property. Better yet, the house is perfectly furnished and absolutely gorgeous. Its sliding glass doors allow great views of the sea and fresh sea breezes to flow through the house. Even more fantastic are the varied and beautiful sea life that you find within feet of the house's deck. Be prepared for the most spectacular sea creatures you will ever see. The owners were perfect hosts, helping us enjoy their wonderful island and teaching us about the house and its surroundings. My wife and I look forward to our next visit to this perfect house in paradise.
