"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"

"What can be said about Moorea that has not already been said in previous reviews! The beauty of the island is staggering from the clear turquoise ocean to the sandy beach to the dramatic rise of the mountains, and sooo green! My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here by swimming with dolphins. We also took a boat trip and swam with sting rays and black tip shark.
The house and landscaping were beyond beautiful. Tiare who took our reservation and was our contact person was wonderful - so helpful. And Fifi who kept the house sparkling clean was precious. She made amazing flower arrangements (one in every room including bathrooms) with flowers cut from the garden.
This is the most beautiful island we have been to, we were there for 16 days (all spent at the house) and could have stayed longer with no problem. We hope to return."

"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 had a wonderful stay at Bungalow Moorea. The Bungalow was well set out, of good quality and the most comfortable beds! The kitchen was well stocked with basic groceries like flour, salt, pepper, oil etc glad wrap, Kleenex tissues and many pans, bowls and utensils. The hotplate heats up very fast. Isabelle had left juice, water, milk and butter and jam in the fridge and a large bowl of fresh fruit. In fact we were supplied with fresh spring water for our entire stay.
Isabelle and Jean Paul have a range of sizes of snorkels to use and the use of the inflatable paddle board. We got great use out of this. As told, it does take less than 5 mins to inflate and is light enough for one person to carry to the local beach! It comes in a back pack so would be easy to transport to other beaches and use.
We didn't have a rental car for our whole stay and found the local store (30 mins walk) back towards Maatea very well stocked. It actually has the better range of fresh salad and veggies. 30 mins walk in the opposite direction takes you to the fish shack. Poisson Cru (1000 cpf), 2 of these easily fed 3 of us....delicious fresh fish. We also tried the samosas, they were also very tasty. We have left the price list on the bungalow notice board.
Once we had our rental car, we bought fresh tuna sold on the roadside outside the marina. It is cut and sold in plastic bags. All caught fresh that afternoon. We got a piece that cost 1500 cpf and lasted the 3 of us 2 very generous meals.
Isabelle and Jean Paul were wonderful hosts. So full of helpful advice, attentive and incredibly generous people. The coconut show was fascinating and the Tahitian drink (mai tais) a 'must'.
The Lagoonarium was a highlight for us but another time would like to get out to the 2 Motu's by the intercontinental. Unfortunately we didn't hit the best week of weather.
We loved Moorea and felt it was a holiday that had the right balance of rest and activity. We would definitely recommend staying at Bungalow Moorea and hope to stay there again in the future.
Many thanks Jean Paul and Isabelle.
