We stayed in this property for a week. It is beautiful and the location is perfect. As I am writing this review, I can see the sunrise (our last day and is sad) and is a perfect villa. The property is well maintained and clean. The pool is fantastic. A great place to stay

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely amazing! The view is one of the best you will find on the entire island. My husband and I stayed here for 1 week with our two kids (age 5 and 7). The kids enjoyed the private hot tub on our deck as well as the community pool down below. Both bedrooms were air conditioned, so we slept very well and comfortably. The kitchen is fully stocked so we made many of our meals at home. The washer and dryer helped immensely as well. Of note, this property is very high up within the Legends Residencies, so if you choose to stay here, I highly recommend having a rental car.

Beautiful Hillside Villa with Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

A very well appointed villa sitting about 300ft above the Intercontinental Resort. The view is way more beautiful than the picture shows.

This used to be Legends Resort, but has changed to Legends Residence, so there is no main reception as you would expect at a resort. The complex features a moderate sized pool, tennis courts and a weight room which all seemed to be in good condition.

The villa had everything we could want - Cooktop, Oven, Microwave, Fridge, Dishwasher, TV, Washer & Dryer. Also, contrary to the description, there was free WiFi.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, tanning on the deck every afternoon and cooling off in the Hot Tub (don't know if it had heat but we never needed it warming up).

We were very glad to have a car from Avis Pacificar because the road up to the villa is pretty steep and quite long when you include all the switchbacks. We climbed it once and decided that was enough!

The car was also very handy to enable us to get to the larger grocery stores and the great selection of excellent restaurants dotted along the coast. Some of the restaurants will pick you up if they are close by, those further away will only pick up if they have 6 or more people.

Happy hour at Holy Steak (bottom of the hill from the villa) from 5 to 6pm is worth remembering and they give 10% off food if you are staying at the Legends Residence.

Elodie who greeted us upon arrival and departure was very sweet, and so knowledgeable about what to see and do around the island.

We would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to stay in Moorea without being in a resort complex.

Thank you Alain and Elodie for a very enjoyable and relaxing vacation!

Stunning views from a lovely villa that has everything and then some!

  • 5 of 5

From the greeting when we arrived by Elodie through to our departure, the 11 days at this luxury villa could not have been better. It is in a private, gated community on the highest road with views to die for, a cool pool (because it's hot!) and a full kitchen for cooking some great seafood. The house is modern but has every aspect of the best of Pacific design. If you are contemplating the Intercontinental, just don't. This place is so much better value and you can just walk down the hill to the Intercontinental to see the dolphin pool and turtle sanctuary. Also, go visit the beach in front of Les Tipaniers just 3 minutes drive away. For groceries, head to the SuperU at Cooks Bay and for fresh tuna, look out on the side of the road for locals selling it.

Thanks so much Alain! You have a great house and we loved staying!

Extraordinary hilltop views!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and spacious villa with hilltop privacy. Morning coffee on the patio with incredible views of the lagoon and a few whales just outside the channel. Kitchen is ready for evening seared tuna, vegetables, and wine purchased at the local market. Lunch at Snack Mahana is a must! Elodie had some great local advice. Would stay here again on our next visit to Moorea.
