Life and Love on Moorea

Peace, tranquility, love& light is what we rediscovered sharing this most joyous experience in Moorea. The gracious & generous hosts of this perfect property, Joselyne and Alain are truly special souls. Our "fare" (bungalow) is nestled amidst tall coconut trees with a stretch of private sea property right out its front door; offering the calm and soothing sounds of gentle waves. A quick 3 minute drive brings one to the uncrowded lagoon where one immerses oneself in its pristine, crystal clear water. There, the eyes feast on the panorama of Moorea's 3 breathtaking mountains boasting intense lush, green fauna filled with pineapple groves of the sweetest taste sensation known to mankind. Papayas, huge green grapefruits, passion fruits and delectable coconuts are abound. The smell of dried, burning coconuts and twigs keep the air clean of early morning mosquitos. The charming, clean and cozy "fare" is equipped with a well appointed kitchen with a stone fire pit right off the outdoor dining room porch where we cooked fish, meats and island vegetables. We spent much time cooking and sharing our dinners by candle light, every night. Here is where romance was born, dancing effortlessly from morning 'til night and then some.... This is what life is. Simplicity. Honesty. Love in its purest form. Reconnect with yourself and your partner. You cannot help but slip easily and steadily into its warm embrace. Renting a car is mandatory for complete autonomy where one may cruise around the boundaries of this islands paradise. Marine specialists will guide you by boat through a day filled with heart-happy, exhilarating experiences such as swimming with the soft, silky coated sting rays, black tailed sharks and exotic fish of all sizes and colors of the rainbow. Whale sightings in high season are quite common. Dolphins are forever dancing for you showing you how happy and unspoiled life is.
We are a highly travelled Italian couple now living in Scottsdale Arizona with a successful, thriving and of course, stressful business which we run 11 months of the year. Moorea and this most prefect, unique place on earth helped remind us once again of the many blessings and gifts of life. Peace, tranquility and pure love. You MUST experience Moorea...and staying on this property of dear Joselyne and Alain will most certainly guarantee it!!!
P.S. They are the most gifted artists, with their jewelry boutique filled with extraordinary, hand crafted treasures!
