When you make a reservation on a rental property, one would never fully realize what to expect from the description provided in the listing. It turned out that this property is a GEM. First of all, the owners, Sebastien and Vairea, bent over backwards to make our stay super pleasant. The big surprise was they offered to meet us at the airport upon our arrival late in the evening. They transported us and our bags to the rental property, which is located next to their own residence. When we entered, we found the place immaculately clean and everything in place (as described in the listing). The second surprise was that we found the kitchen well-stocked with goodies for our morning breakfast since we would not have time to shop before hand.
During our stay, Vairea kept in touch with us via WhatsApp (highly recommend that you download the app before departing for your trip). She offered suggestions on what to see, where to go to do certain shopping and above all, offered to take my wife shopping.
Each bedroom (and there were three) was equipped with an in-room air conditioner and in working condition. Soap, towels and toilet sundries were provided.
The kitchen had a coffee maker, a hot water maker, the stove, a microwave, a toaster and a refrigerator - everything was working properly. We were able to do basic cooking for our breakfasts and lunches. Plates and flatware were adequate.
An added bonus was the pool in front of the property. When it was a little warm and toasty, we were able to dip into the pool to cool off.
A laundry washing machine was located in the back of the property. Detergent was provided. No dryer was included, but clothesline and clothe rack were there to hang the wet laundry and it took less than two hours for everything to dry.
The location of the property was ideal for doing the basic shopping and going to downtown to the central market and other tourist attraction. Everything was within 10 to 20 minutes walk.
The last surprise was that they insisted on transporting us and our bags to the airport upon our departure.
I strongly recommend this property and if I plan to take another vacation in Papeete, I will certainly seek out this property.
Super beautiful, laid back house. Loved the rustic island feel. Epic snorkeling right out front. The kayaks were so fun. Tie your paddles to the kayak if you plan to jump in and swim. You can walk to a little store down the street to get fresh bread every morning. The sun set every evening was beautiful. Our family loved it that it had no wifi. It was great to tune out and reconnect with each other. Don't change a thing Teva. Your house is perfect.
