About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The only vacation rental in the beautiful surfing village of Teahupoo, this four-bedroom two-bathroom house is ideally located a five-minute walk from the shore break and a two-minute walk to a crystal clear river pool. Surfers can be in the lineup in less than a half an hour by a jog to the point and a quick paddle out. This quiet community is unique in Tahiti both for its laid back surfing atmosphere and for its uncommonly welcoming and traditional Polynesian ambiance.

The artistic wooden house is 1,250 square feet plus a huge 270 square foot deck so you can practically live outdoors. The house is an octagon with an open-air area at its center - a mangosteen tree grows out of the middle and the area brings in lots of light as well as views of the mountains, and at night, the moon.

All the main rooms have teak floors while the bathrooms and kitchen are tiled. The custom made windows and kitchen cabinetry are made from hardwoods and the house is furnished with Bali style teak furniture. The home is designed to catch tropical breezes so it's often noticeably cooler than outside even without air-conditioning.

Over 18 types of fruit grow in the 3/4 acre garden including the usual suspects like mango, papaya, pineapple, passion fruit, banana and lime but also rare species to Polynesia such as giant South American pink pomelos, cinnamon and cocoa.

Hiking trails, kayaking, snorkeling, surfing and swimming are literally right outside the door. One third of a mile from the main road, the house is quiet, far from any traffic and is perfect for children and active families.

Car: Not Necessary

Our house is located in the peaceful and laidback town of Teahupo'o at the end of the road in Tahiti. The locals are friendly and not at all jaded to tourism, despite the nearly 16 years that it has been a stop on the World Tour of professional surfing. It's possible to just walk off the beach and snorkel or spearfish in the coral gardens in the bay and in the channel that leads out to sea. Local guides are available to take visitors out for deep sea fishing, big game fishing, whale watching, bird watching and pig hunting. An authentic Polynesian experience is guaranteed.


Owner info

About the owner: We designed and built the house for our family of four. I own a pearl farm in the Tuamotus and also shoot photos for NatGeo Creative. My wife Celeste is a travel writer for Lonely Planet guide books. We are currently based in Portland, Oregon USA until our kids (15 and 17) get through high school. I love to spearfish and surf. I was the president of the local surf club and really enjoyed getting to know the kids and their families who are sprinkled throughout the village. We raised our kids in our home in Teahupo'o and will forever return for its peace and beauty.

Why the Owner Chose Windward Islands, French Polynesia:
We built our house here because the community is unique in that the people are warm and welcoming to foreigners. The 'End of the Road' has everything we were looking for: tranquility, safety, easy access to the ocean and a river with crystal clear water coming from the mountain.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unlike other hotels or hostels in the area, ours is the only one that is in the village of Teahupo'o and within easy walking distance of the river, the beach and The Point. Be sure to wave hello to the friendly neighbors as is the local custom.
