: I grew up on the island of Bora Bora and will always remember the many happy moments when my parents would take my two brothers and myself for boat rides to snorkel, explore the reefs or to fish. Often, we would beach the boat on Motu Ahuna islet, where I loved to comb the beaches for shells or driftwood. We cooked freshly caught fish on hot coral stones and climbed palm trees for coconuts to drink their pure water. Years later, when I studied Biology in France, I would dream about Bora Bora and having a home on one of its pretty islets. When I returned, my parents urged me to pursue my dream, so for years, I’ve slowly been creating my own little island Paradise. The result is Villa Ahuna, and I am happy to share it with you.

This is a very unique and wonderful rental. The setting is just amazing. You are virtually alone looking across the lagoon to the main island of Bora Bora. The small island that this home sits on is part of the still around Bora Bora. The main cooking sitting area is in an open air covered patio. There are two walled bungalows with a king bed and bathroom in each. The beds are comfortable. Part of what made this so lovely for us could be uncomfortable for others. The island is very isolated and reachable,only by boat. A small boat is provided. The boat is easy to,use if you know how to drive a boat. The unit is simple with a refrigerator, a stove. Electricity is limited but plenty for recharging batteries. You need to buy drinking water and boat it from town.
We loved cooking our own simple meals, relaxing on,the beach and patio and snorkeling. There is a very shallow and interesting reef just outside the door filled with lots of juvenile fish. Cross the shallow reef barrier and there is a beautiful reef filled with coral and fish.
If you're wishing for peace, solitude, beauty and simple comforts, this is the place for you.
If you need nightlife, meals out, social events, this rental will not work for you.
Tea and the local caretakers were very responsive.
Fantastic get away from the tourist scene.
The place was beautiful and relaxing. This is not your typical island retreat. You will have to rough it a little. No air, room service or walking to the store but that's the whole point of this place. To fall off the edge of the earth into your own paradise.
Property was well taken care of and clean for being an open house, no doors or windows in the main house. Sleeping quarters were covered and lockable.
Caretakers were attentive and left us to our own unless we needed something. Brought us fresh fruit a couple of times. Little bit of a language issue but hand signs work well enough.
Lots of tours for seeing the island and the surrounding water. We were provided with a 15 foot boat to do our own site seeing and getting back and forth to the main island for food, etc. If it rains, you get wet. If the waves are a little rough, you get wet. This is all part of the adventure.
There were 4 of us and we had plenty of room to hang out. The views from the house and property are beautiful. Bugs were not an issue due to the constant breeze over the island.
Bora Bora is a wonderful place to take on this adventure.
Paradise Adventure in Bora Bora
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.
The other reviews said it all. I am fortunate to have been to Bora Bora many times .I have stayed at very fine hotels but this experience is special.It is as you would hope a getaway to some exotic ,private, non touristic , primitive island would be but with everything you need,if you are content with the kind of vacation where you relax and find the you that was lost all those years ago, this is it.One of the most beautiful spots on the most beautiful Island in the world.
Tea does so much to make the island comfortable. I was not bitten once by a mosquito and you are in the tropics!!! My wife and I used only one of the bungalows,but next time we will bring two friends for the same price for one of the most wonderful experiences of their lives. It is not just a place to stay,it is an adventure
The most unique, fun place to stay ever! The trip of a lifetime!!!
We have always dreamed of a trip to Bora Bora, and envisioned ourselves staying in an over the water bungalow. But after doing extensive research, we decided that we wanted an experience more authentic and private. The over water bungalows look great in pictures, but in reality they are right next to each other and you have very little privacy. We found Villa Ahuna and I knew instantly that this was where we wanted to stay for our dream trip. I booked the property for 9 nights. We were a bit nervous since we had never been to Bora Bora, and we weren't sure of logistics, the location, etc. We are both boaters and sailors, so the thought of having a small boat as our primary transportation for vacation was very exciting to us.
All of our communications with Tea, the owner, were gracious, and any questions we had prior to our arrival were answered promptly. We were greeted at the airport on arrival by A young woman named Bellen, and a boat driver named Tuma. Bellen was a pleasure to meet, and she gave us our initial introduction to Bora Bora, and a quick tour of the area by boat, pointing out restaurants, markets, places to dock our boat, etc. We arrived at the Villa, and Bellen gave us an extensive briefing on the property. Pictures don't really do this property justice - it is huge, and there are several gazebos, docks, beaches, tables, eating areas spread around it. The main living area is very large as well. There is a huge kitchen/bar area with seating around the kitchen. There is a stove, refrigerator, sink and a full supply of cooking utensils. The living room area is also very large, with 2 couches and 2 loveseats/chairs. There is beautiful artwork all around, shells, carvings, and other island art. The property came with it's own cat, Mitzi, that was the sweetest, friendliest cat I have ever encountered.
The sleeping accommodations are in 2 bungalows that I think came from the Old Bora Bora Hotel that was destroyed in a storm. Each has a lovely king size bed and bathroom. Although there is no air conditioning, there are fans provided, and we had no problems sleeping. One of the most memorable things is waking up at sunrise and hearing the waves breaking on the reef just outside the door. We fed the fish from the dock, and there was a small octopus that lived by the dock that ate every morning.
The small boat provided was adequate for trips to Vaitape for shopping as well as circling the island. If you crave adventure this is the place for you!
