The bungalow was stunning - and there is just an amazing feeling being over the water! The beds are comfortable and the deck and deck furniture are great too. The kitchen comes fully loaded with tons of cookware, and beach towels and hair dryers are are provided. The property manager, Nathalie, was extremely helpful with providing great advice, and even helped us book an amazing lagoon tour for below published prices (they only charged us for one of our 2 children)! The only negative of the house was no air conditioning. Each of the bedrooms as well as the living room had strong ceiling fans, which were very helpful. Although it doesn't cool down much at night, we were able to sleep well most nights, despite the heat. The only other negative was that although the bungalow is listed as sleeping 4 (which it comfortably does), we were charged an additional 420 Euros for our 6 day stay for having 4 people. Apparently they charge additional for each person above 2 people, which is not stating in their listing. This house is listed as the least expensive of the 5 bungalows - though the other bungalows don't appear to charge extra for additional people, the others end up actually being cheaper for 4 people (and have AC). Despite this, we truly had an amazing trip, and would definitely recommend the bungalow. Definitely still worth the money! FYI - we met a few people who were staying on resorts on the private islands, and they said that their restaurants there were really expensive (which says a lot, because the restaurants on the main island were already at least twice the price of restaurants in the US), and ended up taking a shuttle back to the main island to eat. Everything in Bora Bora is expensive, but it seems the value is way better on the main island, and also much more to do - if you like to stay active during your trip. Definitely recommended!
Great over the water bungalow!
Perfect for two couples. Very clean. Located a couple miles from Viatape, so it is best to rent a car to get around the island. Natalie worked out the logistics for us on our return flight (you need to drive to the pier, then take a ferry to the airport to catch your flight). Everything worked flawless. Easy to get around the island. Many good restaurants & markets within a short drive. We wil return!
We enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable, quite and watched beautiful sunsets. Great ppace!
Returned for our Honeymoon!
We had an amazing time at this overwater bungalow! The owners and managers are very kind and helpful people. The house is fully equipped from the kitchen and spaciousness to the on site snorkeling and kayaks. The price, location and beauty are unbeatable!
Perfect property in every way. Owners and housekeeper were great. Highly recommended
We stayed here for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. From booking the communication with the owners were great. I've never been anywhere like this before and they were more than helpful in regards to where to book car hire, catch the ferry from the airport ect. Property itself was so nice! The interior and decoration was nice, very clean and tidy and over all was extremely well equipped. We went self catering so kitchen was important. It was so well equipped, there was more stuff in the kitchen than we have at home so that was a huge relief when we arrived. The location is great, only a 15 minute drive to the town and around a 10 minute drive to the supermarket. We spent a lot of time on the bungalow because we had no reason to leave. Plenty of coral and fish for snorkelling off the dock and we spent a lot of time in the kayaks too! My wife isn't a confident swimmer so was happy that there were life jackets to use on the kayaks. Beds were comfy. Some reviews mention the lack of aircon. I was a bit concerned about this as I'm not a huge fan of the heat. I love it in the day but I do like to be cool at night. It wasn't as bad as what the reviews said, with the ceeling fans on it was just the right temp. Wifi was supposed to be slow on the island in general but in the bungalow we had great experience. We managed to facetime our son every day and stream Netflix whilst going to sleep with no problems at all. Every meal was eaten on the balcony over the water. The lights for the lagoon were nice as they attracted lots of fish, we even saw a ray and a blue eel one night. Nathalie the housekeeper and her husband are a real credit to the property. They sorted a lagoon tour for us, gave us some great tips for staying on the island, very friendly and we made good friends with there dog too! They live opposite so we often bumped into them and the dog which was nice. I literally can't think of anything bad or anything I would change in regards to the property. I am so happy we chose to stay here rather than on a resort on a motu. We used the islands sights to the fullest and wouldn't have been able to do this without staying on the main land. The property has some pretty cool history about it too which we found out whilst on our tour (I won't spoil it for you). I'm running out of characters now, I could talk all day about how happy we were with the bungalow. I can't recommend the property enough! We will be back and we won't stay anywhere else! Thank you so much!
3 Star Home on a 5 Star Location
It's hard not to love a bungalow on the water surrounded by coral and tropical fish. The location and surroundings are amazing. There are two kayaks to help you start your day and our family had a wonderful time. The downside is that there is no air conditioning and no screens on the windows. At night you have to open up the entire house to get the breezes to flow. The beds were very comfortable and it has two bathrooms but a very small hot water tank. Frankly, this house needs a renovation but that never got in the way of our having a terrific time. For the price it was well worth it. I definitely recommend staying here. Just know there are a few short comings with the home. But those never got in the way of our having a wonderful 12 day stay.
