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. Fare no Tehau is a home that is rented out 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, with a gorgeous orange/green mountain view, with two docks sitting on the marina, 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 marina on which the home sits leads into the sparkling lagoon (the lagoon is also maybe a one minute walk from the house down the neighborhood private lane), 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 has 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 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 to! Please google 'Fare no Tehau' for our other sites with more photos!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  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 home 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.
