"Iaorana. We stayed at Motu Ahuna Villa in mid May and had chosen that time frame to be sort of in between the summer and winter seasons. It was a good choice with highs in the upper 80's and lows in the upper 70's every day. We had some rain, but not much, and there was a nice breeze much of the time.
There were 4 of us (2 couples) and we had the most wonderful vacation. It truly was the trip of a lifetime. As others have said, you need a bit of an adventurous spirit or this is not the place for you. It helps to have at least one person with some boating experience. Cooking our own meals, including those over the fire pit (barbeque), was all part of the experience that we will forever cherish about this trip. I really enjoyed my cold 22 oz. Hinanos sitting on the picnic table by an evening campfire, watching the stars (there have to be more stars in Bora Bora!), and the boats coming and going through the pass in front of the Motu.
We will never forget the great memories that we've taken away from this vacation. From the very beginning when Maeva met us at the airport, we knew everything was going to be great. The homemade Leis she brought us were beautiful, and much nicer than those for others staying at resorts. She is such a genuinely nice lady. Everyone was very kind and welcoming to us throughout our stay. There was a slight communication barrier with Joelle and Tatiyana (spelling?), but they were both very nice and it was good to know that there was someone on
the island that we could go to if we needed for any reason. The villa was perfect and certainly as described. We enjoyed watching every sunrise and sunset every day we were there. On our trips to Vaitape in the small boat, we had no problems and everyone in the village that we met was equally friendly. We all will never forget the smell of the fresh baguettes being brought out from the oven to the front of the store at Chin Lee's or Super U. They were so good and I'm sure we'll never find them that fresh again any where here in the U.S. Rocky, our tour guide on the jeep safari, was perfect. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, and answered all our questions about the island. My wife and my sister will cherish the black pearls they brought home from Bora
Bora. Your store (The Farm) is incredible!
I hope we are able to return some day.
Thanks again (Mauru' uru) and if you ever need a good reference for your villa, I would be more than happy to provide one."

"Villa Vahimanui is one of the best rental properties we have visited. The listing is very accurate and the web site photos are beautiful but just do not do the property justice. We loved everything about it : the beautiful deck, the air-conditioned bedroom, the cleanliness, the quiet and peacefulness, the proximity to Vaitape, the privacy, the stunning and majestic views ! The villa offered all the comforts of home away from home at no additional or hidden cost/charge. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with all essential cooking supplies. Pierre (owner) was a tremendous help from the time we connected with him on VRBO through his follow-up after we returned. He was responsive, encouraging and helpful in emailing and advising us on best ways to travel and make necessary arrangements. Nathalie and Barthelemy, his caretakers, are wonderful people and a delight to talk with. They know everything about Bora Bora. We enjoyed our time on Matira beach, which was never crowded, there was so much to do in the area (feeding the fish and snorkeling was a daily activity !!). If your desire is to escape the busy city life and pamper yourself in a scenic, relaxing, and tranquil environment, this should be your destination choice. We have already recommended the property to many of our friends. We would not hesitate to return again. Many thanks to Pierre, Nathalie and Barthelemy for sharing this marvelous vacation Villa!"
