Over the water dream house at a reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully decorated house with comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, large deck and several kayaks. We enjoyed the easy access to the lagoon for swimming, snorkeling and Kayaking along the shore. Nathalie was a warm and friendly manager. She arranged a fantastic tour of the lagoon at a discount price. The villa met all our expectations.

Perfect property in every way. Owners and housekeeper were great. Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. From booking the communication with the owners were great. I've never been anywhere like this before and they were more than helpful in regards to where to book car hire, catch the ferry from the airport ect. Property itself was so nice! The interior and decoration was nice, very clean and tidy and over all was extremely well equipped. We went self catering so kitchen was important. It was so well equipped, there was more stuff in the kitchen than we have at home so that was a huge relief when we arrived. The location is great, only a 15 minute drive to the town and around a 10 minute drive to the supermarket. We spent a lot of time on the bungalow because we had no reason to leave. Plenty of coral and fish for snorkelling off the dock and we spent a lot of time in the kayaks too! My wife isn't a confident swimmer so was happy that there were life jackets to use on the kayaks. Beds were comfy. Some reviews mention the lack of aircon. I was a bit concerned about this as I'm not a huge fan of the heat. I love it in the day but I do like to be cool at night. It wasn't as bad as what the reviews said, with the ceeling fans on it was just the right temp. Wifi was supposed to be slow on the island in general but in the bungalow we had great experience. We managed to facetime our son every day and stream Netflix whilst going to sleep with no problems at all. Every meal was eaten on the balcony over the water. The lights for the lagoon were nice as they attracted lots of fish, we even saw a ray and a blue eel one night. Nathalie the housekeeper and her husband are a real credit to the property. They sorted a lagoon tour for us, gave us some great tips for staying on the island, very friendly and we made good friends with there dog too! They live opposite so we often bumped into them and the dog which was nice. I literally can't think of anything bad or anything I would change in regards to the property. I am so happy we chose to stay here rather than on a resort on a motu. We used the islands sights to the fullest and wouldn't have been able to do this without staying on the main land. The property has some pretty cool history about it too which we found out whilst on our tour (I won't spoil it for you). I'm running out of characters now, I could talk all day about how happy we were with the bungalow. I can't recommend the property enough! We will be back and we won't stay anywhere else! Thank you so much!

3 Star Home on a 5 Star Location

  • 4 of 5

It's hard not to love a bungalow on the water surrounded by coral and tropical fish. The location and surroundings are amazing. There are two kayaks to help you start your day and our family had a wonderful time. The downside is that there is no air conditioning and no screens on the windows. At night you have to open up the entire house to get the breezes to flow. The beds were very comfortable and it has two bathrooms but a very small hot water tank. Frankly, this house needs a renovation but that never got in the way of our having a terrific time. For the price it was well worth it. I definitely recommend staying here. Just know there are a few short comings with the home. But those never got in the way of our having a wonderful 12 day stay.

Heaven on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5

This overwater Bungalow was amazing!!! I really did not want to leave there today but I had too. From start to finish my son, my husband and I had such a great time! Nathalie was so kind to us! Such a lovely woman. Every question we had, she answered. She even was so kind as to have her husband cut down a batch of bananas for us and she brought me a delicious grapefruit from her garden because I had asked about where was best to get fruit!! I also had requested some information about tours and where to get that great sea turtle bed cover, and she provided me with that too. Nathalie is a treasure! Epitome of Tahitian/French kindness!

The Bungalow was amazing! Very clean, well maintained, everything we needed was right there. Beds were comfy, kayaks were great and we took them over to the motus, chaise lounges which I sunned on often, the dock out front where my son did cannonballs into the water continuously (my husband and I did a few ourselves!), the table and chairs on the deck where I had my morning coffee and we ate every meal, and the daily swimming and snorkeling right in front of "our water house," as my son called it. But for me, my absolute favorite part of the house was the nightly fish show right off the deck!! We would turn the water lights on and in no time we had a full "aquarium" of orange soldier fish eating plankton, bluish Travali Jacks chasing each other, small turquoise fish, a couple nights we had a little white ribbon eel (We think it's called that.), fish that we could hear jumping around just past the light line but couldn't see, a couple spotted eagle rays, and one evening we even had a white tipped reef shark! It was all so beautiful!! Really magical!! And I was sitting on that deck every night to watch the show!!

We also were lucky enough to have made some very nice friends staying in a rental on the hill, who we plan to remain in touch with! And Nathalie I plan on keeping in touch with! All in all this was a fantastic, dream like vacation!! Fantastic Bungalow!! I hope to return to our water house again some day!!

Thank you Richard and Francoise for letting us stay in your home, and for your help by email before we even left our home!! Thank you! Thank you!! We loved your overwater Bungalow!!

Kathy, Eric and Cole
