Moorea Island house description
Fare no Tehau means House of Peace. The home is owned by a Tahitian woman and her husband who live most of the year in Hawai`i but who make frequent trips to Tahiti. Fare no Tehau is a family home that is rented out occasionally to those seeking an authentic Tahitian experience with all the comforts of home. A thatch roof, beautiful native hardwoods and full sized, fully equipped kitchen with standard refrigerator/freezer, gas stove/oven together with utensils, plates, cups and glasses. Two full baths and comfortable beds will greet you. The home is located on the water side of the road, in an exclusive gated community on the island of Moorea: the Jewel of the South Pacific. Moorea is a five minute plane ride or twenty minute ferry ride from the capital city of Papeete.
The home sits on a salt water canal that leads into the sparkling lagoon, the neighborhood is quiet, a fine French restaurant is right outside the front gate of the community (a grocery store is right outside the other entry gate) and those who have visited most often say: 'we can't wait to come back!' The yard is replete with papaya and lime trees, fishing is great in both the marina on which the house sits or in the lagoon. There are two boat docks at the house and a kayak is available for your exclusive use! The lagoon is either a short paddle away or a quick walk of maybe 50 yards down the private residence road.
The home is on the northwest corner of Moorea island, the leeward and dryer side of the island. If you just want to get away from it all, this is the place to get too! Please google 'Fare no Tehau' for our other sites with more photos!

My wife and I rented this home a few years back when it was still being furnished. It was a fantastic time, the lagoon is fantastic, and paddling out to it from the canal behind the house was pretty cool. The photos of the lagoon don't do it justice, it was phenomenal. Snorkeling all day long, great surf spot at the opening in the reef, and the hotel across the way had all the water toys for rent you could possibly want. Totally worth it!

About the owner: Ida and David own the property. Ida is a child of Tahiti who, after being orphaned at 9, was raised in Hawai`i. She never forgot her Tahitian roots and travels often back home where many of her brothers and sisters still live.
Why the Owner Chose Moorea Island:
This is a family home, so it is well kept, has good mana (spirit), and is surrounded by friendly neighbors. Everything is close and the price is right.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Pandanus roof keeps things cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The full sized appliances, and washer/dryer, make your stay convenient and fun. Those who have stayed with us almost universally express their gratitude and intent to return.
