A real Tahitian experience. Best place on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 just returned from an enjoyable and relaxing stay at this home. I loved the open house which had everything we needed and more. The gardens are lovely and smelled so wonderful. The beach is the best on the island. The lagoon water is heaven and we could kayak, paddle board, snorkel, to our hearts content. We felt so welcomed and easily felt a part of Tahiti. Convenient shopping, bakeries, and great restaurants near by. Tea, the property owner, was welcoming and helpful. Informed us about Tahitian festivities nearby which we enjoyed. Sad to have left and hope to return.

This is a beautiful, large and well appointed vacation rental. The home is tucked in a tropical garden (flowers smell beautiful) with access to a private white sand beach. The rooms are large and in true Polynesian style, no shoes allowed in doors, beautiful wood floors and open air style. (No AC) The roosters walk the property as well as a friendly cat and dog.

The kitchen has all you need: Coffee pot/French press, microwave, large refrigerator and gas stove. Tea left us some bananas from her garden.

There are several oscillating fans in the home to move the air. The bathroom is also "open air". When showering you felt like you were in a tropical garden. There is a washer and dryer on the premises which is shared by other units on the property. There is wifi, it is weak, but served our needs. There is a TV, but all French stations, we are from the US and were hoping for one English channel (CNN). There is a food truck (roulette) at the corner of this property, an easy walk, great food. There is a grocery store nearby as well as numerous other food trucks/vendors.

This was a great way to experience Tahiti.

Many thanks Tea.

Perfect location on lagoon and white sand beach.

  • 5 of 5

Fare Ylang Ylang was an ideal spot to spend our family vacation. It is located on the best section of Punaauia's white sand beach. We enjoyed the super quick walk (1 minute) down to the beach every morning and sunset. The lagoon out front was perfect for my 21 month old son and young niece who is learning how to swim. The main fare and bungalow were a highlight--very neat architecture throughout.

Our family enjoyed having morning coffee and eating our meals out on the deck...the gardens are beautiful and we loved the sweet scent of the Ylang Ylang blooms.

The amenities (cookware, towels, sheets) were suitable for our stay. I was impressed with the little special touches such as coffee, fruit and jam.

What made our stay extra special was our hostess Tea. She was very helpful (even pre-arrival) and generous. She was available if we had any questions and ensured we were comfortable everyday. If we did have a concern with the house (propane for shower, etc.), she addressed it quickly and efficiently. Mahalo nui loa Tea.

We all hope to return to this special piece of Tahitian paradise. 'A hui hou (until we meet again).

Experience Tahiti!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Fare Ylang Ylang. After spending a week at a "resort", the three couples in our party wanted to experience how Tahitians live. This property has access to the best beach in Tahiti and the aroma's of the gardens fill the house, making it a pleasant environment. The property owner, Tea Urshon, is a wonderful resource to ensure that you make the best of your visit.

It was an exceptional time in a unique place, and only too short of a stay.The main house is very special, with every detail in superb taste. The traditional design with its thatched roof is a rare experience. It never needed air-conditioning as it is designed of air flow in an ingenious way. The additional members of our family stayed the tree house next door which the kids adored. The gardens are just beautiful, and obviously developed with love and taste.

There smells were delicious. The beach in front is perfect for kids with beautiful water, and they couldn't get enough of it. We enjoyed seeing the local Tahitians enjoying the beach.

I would chose this over a protected resort any day. Snack bars, pizza,chicken etc.. were a 2 minute drive away. This was handy with little kids when we really didn't want to cook or go to a fancy restaurant. Ever the perfect host -owner,Unutea supplied wonderful tropical fruit on our arrival which we enjoyed through our stay . She was very helpful with ideas and suggestions for our stay.

I couldn't think of a better way to experience Tahitian life on Papeete than this unique and special spot. We had stayed on Moorea for couple of weeks but were really glad that we experienced this part of Papeete as well.
