Overview

French Polynesia Studio Rental Photos and Description

Sea front

Spacious apartment with huge terrace over the Bora Bora lagoon.

Overlooking the lagoon, facing the motus (little islet of white sand), the studio flat is the ideal place for your holidays in Bora Bora. It is located in a small and very quiet residence which blends perfectly with the setting. A small beach is on hand below the house, where you can bathe peacefully. The accommodation is fully equipped (white goods, television, Wi-Fi) and enjoys a huge sunny terrace, perfect to have breakfast or to drink a glass of Champagne at sunset.

Vaitape (main town) is a few kilometres away and there you will find everything you are looking for (banks, health centre, shops, services providers, snacks and restaurants).

A parking is at your disposal if you have a rented vehicle.

Best alternative to Hotels!!!

  • 5 of 5

The booking process went very well and got all the information that we were requesting to be sure to come. It was a really nice suprised when we arrived in the appartment. The owner friend named Bruno came to pick us up at Vaitape and was really helpful and friendly. The appartment is clean and has an amazing view.

This is a real nice alternative to the hotel and a cheaper one. Youcan easily drive around the main island and live our life.

Thanks again for this nice stay! We will surely come back next time!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

From booking our rental to our hesitant departure (who wants to leave paradise?), our experience was fantastic. Our studio was at the top level, but we didn't mind the exercise going up the 88 steps. A magnificent view right across from the airport. We highly recommend renting the car! Bruno was very attentive and helped with recommendations on places to eat. We absolutely LOVED Bora Bora and this condo was the best idea. We were able to fully experience the main island, its people and the raw reality of it all before we headed over to our resort fantasy lifestyle. Hope to return soon!

Beautiful Place

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful comfortable apartment that is fully equipped. The views are spectacular and you will never get tired of sitting on the balcony and taking them in. We enjoyed morning coffee and breakfast and evening cocktails and dinner taking in the views.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything to make meals. There is a washing machine for clothes. AC at night to keep the misquotes out. WiFi to stay connected. There is satellite TV, but everything is in French. (Would be nice to have a couple of other channels)

The only real issue is the location. It is 8 km from town and 15 from the best beach. Rental cars run about $140 a day. We rented bikes for $25/day for 2. The first time you ride around the island is fun. The second and third time is really hard.

Overall this is a great place and I would stay here again. Even if you rented a car the entire time, you would probably save over staying in a hotel. I really like have the option to cook instead of eating in restaurants at every meal. I also really enjoy my privacy. This apartment gives you both. The Avis car rental said they would be renting scooters in a few months, so that may be a good option.

Lastly the owner is fantastic. I feel like we were the first to rent this apartment and there were a few issues. He had people there within hours to fix any issue we had. He would always respond within minutes and let us know when somebody would be there. Bruno and Lucy went out of there way to help us get around the island. They made the trip so easy and enjoyable.

So if you are like me, and prefer apartments over hotels, this is a great option.

No recomendable.

  • 2 of 5

Viajamos 3 matrimonios, 2 se hospedaron en una hermosa y cómoda casa al lado de este apartamento y un matrimonio se hospedó en el Apto.

Dejando de lado los 92 escalones que hay que subir o bajar... y que realmente a nuestra llegada o retirada y con todo el equipaje no es para nada fácil, deja mucho que desear.

Para comenzar prometieron esperarnos para nuestro traslado en el puerto a la llegada del Ferry, efectivamente Bruno el encargado estaba pero sin vehículo (1er.problema informó que estaba sin funcionar) pero tampoco contrataron un taxi como era la responsabilidad, alquilamos nosotros un vehiculo pero cuando lo buscamos Bruno para que nos acompañe ya había desaparecido, así que no fué fácil descubrir cual era el lugar y luego de recorrer y preguntar (mas de 1 hora) encontramos el apto.

Apartamento limpio, con buena vista, bien localizado, a pocos metros de la playa, (no la mejor pero se puede tomar baño) pero repito difícil acceso casi 100 escalones, el aire acondicionado no funcionaba y no funcionó (luego nos descontaron 45 euros por este problema)...

Resumiendo, estimo que hay mejores opciones, yo no volvería a alquilar, pero Bora Bora es Bora Bora y el paisaje, la vista, el lugar hace que todo se olvide.

Igual Bruno, muchas gracias por tu atención.(se hace lo que se puede).

Moyen

  • 2 of 5

92 marches tout de même pour arriver à un studio agréable avec une belle terrasse et une vue sur le lagon. Le ménage n'avait pas été fait, la connexion wi fi plus que sporadique, la télévision ne fonctionnant pas ainsi que la mini chaine audio.

Séjour décevant
