Not For Seniors
This property, described as a villa, is closer to a ”rustic cottage” or “camp”. We chose it partially because it had 2 bathrooms. However, the second bathroom was in a separate building with a bedroom, that was locked off from the house, so we only had 1 bathroom. The building is very open to the outside, having only plastic doors and windows. You can see the ground through cracks in the floor boards. The doors slide open and the windows are propped open with sticks. There are many steps and stairs and NO railings; fine for young folks but not ideal for our party of seniors. The steps leading out to the pool area were 14 inches, 12 inches and 10 inches high, not the 7 inches common in the US. The varying size of the steps coupled with no railings made it difficult for us.
The kitchen was on the main level but the only eating area was on the porch, again, three large steps down. There was no container for juice or to put cold water into the refrigerator. The interior lighting was almost nonexistent and the number of electric plugs was inadequate. It looked like there was electrical work in progress; there were about a dozen lights around the ceiling of the living room/kitchen great room that appeared to be in the process of installation. They could not be turned on. The switch was also missing to turn on ceiling lights in 1 bedroom which also had a broken fan. To read a book or play a board game, we had to resort to the outside eating area which, after we complained, was lit better by a borrowed lamp. The bed “pillows” were terrible, small and dingy looking. Washer, dryer, dishwasher and hair dryers were appreciated and all functioned well. The pool was small but nice and refreshing. It is a great place to sit and look at the water and hear the waves crashing over the barrier reef. The water in front was fine for an adventurous snorkeler but not for our senior party, since one had to do a drift snorkel. The current was strong enough that it would take a strong swimmer to swim against it. This property was NOT a good choice for our group.
With pleasure !!!
Charming property on the water
This is a cozy property right on the water with a very nice beach just a 2 minute walk along the shore away. Snorkling is very good right in front of the property.
The house is a weekend house but it works well for a rental. It is certainly not luxury but its charm makes up for it. There is no aircon but the location is in a breezy spot so we did not need it (I was concerned before I arrived). The pool is a good size (8m by 4m I think) and about 1.5m deep.
A car is a must since it is a 3 minute drive on gravel to get there from the main road.
Internet is typical for Moorea ( about 1.2Mbps) but reliable so ok if you do not expect to stream above 360p.
The owners are very nice and welcomed us to the property themselves.
We would gladly stay here again.
Great house on the ocean and very friendly owner!
Great house by the ocean in Moorea! The house is typical for French Polynesia with lots of living space and connection to the outside. It has everything you need and is very well decorated. We really enjoyed the snorkeling right in front of the house and our children enjoyed the swimming pool. We also found that there was plenty to do in Moorea and that it is a very scenic island. I am very grateful to the owner because she helped me resolve a passport issue with one of my children, which is really outside of duties for a person renting their vacation home. The only possible improvement would be to improve the shower because it was sometimes oscillating between hot and cold, but it was not a big deal since it is so hot outside! In summary, we would recommend this house to our friends and we hope to come back to this house on vacation!
