"Our 10-day stay was better than imaged. We were picked up at the ferry, taken to local supermarket and then on the Motu Tamae, speaking English and given local information by the beautiful Joscelyn all the way. Entering the property was breathtaking. It is truly Polynesia.. A bountiful platter of fruit on the table, the sounds of the sea outside, and the shade of the coconut palms, the eye-catching art all around had us smiling with the knowledge we had chosen the right place. Other reviewers have stated many of the features I would highlight. No need for me. Even if everything wasn't as great has written, Joscelyn and Alain are. They are the reason you should come."

"Perfectly situated, comfortable home right in the center of Paradise. This house is well-named - the setting is so tranquil and beautiful. We had an amazing vacation! We paddled along the canal to the lagoon daily. So grateful for the easy access and the trusty kayak! Just a short paddle away from outstanding coral reefs, sandy beaches, colorful fishes, stingrays, eagle rays, black tip reef sharks . . . Also close by are the Intercontinental and Les Tipaniers. They offer additional amenities should you choose to partake. I really enjoyed kayaking between the bungalows at the Intercontinental. The water was so clear and calm. A great place for swimming and snorkeling if the water is choppy out in the more open areas. Across the lagoon are a few motus (islets) that are fun to visit and offer excellent snorkeling. The Coco Beach restaurant on Motu Tiaharu offers fresh seafood dishes with traditional Tahitian sides. Within close walking distance is a well-stocked market so we were able to cook most days. They offer fresh seafood on Tuesdays and Fridays; fresh baked goods (including baguette) daily. Another shopping area is a few kilometers away. We were able to get everything we needed. We did not have a car, just rented a scooter one day, and did just fine. You can also rent bicycles nearby. I could go on and on but don't think I will ever do Moorea and the House of Peace justice. This truly is paradise. Enjoy!"

"This is an exceptional rental with stunning views. We have rented many homes and this far exceeded the pictures. It has gorgeous views of the water. It's quiet with a huge terrace. Inside the decor and the design and the size of the rooms are excellent. there's lots of space and closets. The 2 bathrooms are large and everything is modern, up-to-date and very clean. The owner supplies everything you need for a comfortable stay (washer, dryer and dishwasher). Although the villa is up high, it's very close to beaches and restaurants. If you don't have a car, many of the restaurants will pick you up and drive you home. The owner is very helpful and offered many good tips. We wish we could have stayed longer."

"We have just spent a most relaxing and special holiday on Moorea as guests at the pension of Marie-Lou. From the first day we were welcomed as friends to her family of husband Gilles and friendly dogs Rex and Queenie. At the house we enjoyed comfortable accommodation with everything we needed. We even found treats in the fridge on our arrival! The position of the house allows ample space from the garden or deck to admire the mesmerising lagoon and the small pier is an excellent bonus for kayaking. Having grown up nearby, Marie-Lou was a wonderful source of helpful information from historical events to present day tourist possibilities. She was very generous with her time, taking us shopping and showing us local highlights. We so enjoyed the time spent with Marie and Gilles who are relaxed and entertaining hosts. Thank you for sharing your corner of paradise with us. We look forward to returning to your stunningly beautiful island. Caro & John"
