We Loved Our Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about our stay here. We were here for a month and Caroline and Joseph were so great to work with. We had an issue with our bag when we first got there and they bent over backwards to coordinate with the airlines and they got it back to us the very next morning first thing. They both have many years in the travel industry and were able to get us a rental car (though we didn't need one for the whole time) at a great discount as well as excursions on the island. They told us the best restaurants which are very close by. The home was very comfortable, close to a beautiful beach and they included kayaks that we used almost everyday to snorkel at the motus across the lagoon. We highly recommend their home, you won't be disappointed...we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! Thank you Caroline and Jo for a wonderful stay and all your help!

A Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The house is beautiful and as shown in the photos – and very comfortable. The patio is a perfect extension of the house. We did not eat one meal inside.

The beach is beautiful. The sunset views from the dock are better than you get at the REALLY EXPENSIVE resort just down the road. Caroline went out of her way to make us feel comfortable, and had good suggestions to keep us busy with the many things that the island has to offer.

You will need a car to enjoy everything.

Hospitality abounds

  • 5 of 5

carolina and jo took care of all our vacation needs from kayaks ,bicycles, taxi not only in Mooreau but also when we arrived at tahiti. We played ping pong every day on front porch. They brought hospitality to new level.

The covered porch was our favorite!

  • 5 of 5

For us, it was not just about the house, but our host Caroline, who was so gracious and friendly, and helped us plan our stay with quality tours and made us fee at home.

The house is a short walk from an amazing beach with white sand and lots of wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed swimming and snorkeling there, specially with the sharks and rays, which I said I would never do before arriving there! We used a kayak from the property to get to the reefs.

We also went to a couple of delicious restaurants by bike, just a few km away. The grocery store is small but have baguettes, salads and drinks.

As for the house, the bed is comfortable, the air conditioner helped us get a great night of sleep, the kitchen had all we needed to prepare meals and we spent tons of time out on the great patio.

Highly recommend Caroline's place and the tour from her husband's (Jo) company. Nice people who cherish where they live and respect the environment.

Amazing location, perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Caroline’s villa for about two weeks in July 2016. Caroline booked a car for us with a very nice discount and answered all our questions we had before arrival. Villa is about 30 min drive from the airport at Sunset beach on the best part of the island. Villa is on gated property so it is very safe. It is less populated part of the island with one of the best beaches. After our early morning arrival Caroline let us in as soon as previous occupants moved away (around 10 am) so we had a breakfast at the patio and hit the beach. There is a very nice sandy beach with very shallow water which is perfect for kids and has some shade from coconut palm trees. Villa has 3 sit-on kayaks which is priceless: we kayaked to the spot (about 10 min trip) where you can swim with black tip sharks (safe-they totally ignore you) and sting rays (they come to you so you can pet them). You can also go across the channel to “private motu” where you can see perfect corals from kayak (too shallow for safe snorkeling) or two motus on the left (10-15 min trip). Don’t swim to the channel because there is some boat traffic and very strong current. Caroline will explain you everything.

Villa has everything you need for your stay and is close to grocery shop (about 1 min drive by car) so you can always get fresh baguettes for breakfast. There is a scuba diving center on the beach but I dove more with Christian from Fun Dive.

Word of advice: we stayed 4 more days on Tahiti after Moorea and it was too long. Tahiti is so different from Moorea – there is heavy traffic in Papeete and in general it is a busy island. I would prefer to stay 2 more days on Moorea and only 2 days on Tahiti.

I think we will come back one day and maybe stay forever…

Thank you Caroline for the great time we had!

Great house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This a really nice house in a great location with all the facilities you need to have a great time in French Polynesia. The beautiful beach is very close and is ideal for children. The kayaks provided allow you to explore the islands close by in the lagoon, as well as visit snorkelling sites and the sharks and rays. Shops nearby, no need for a car. Watching the dolphins at the nearby Intercontinental for free is another fun outing.

The owner is very helpful and lives next door. All in all a fantastic place to stay.
