Car: Necessary

There are a lot of things to do in Moorea. My house, although on a hill, is perfectly located for beach activities. Kayaks, paddle boards and snorkeling equipment can be rented right across the street from the residence. Tours by motorboat to sightsee, swim with rays and sharks can be booked a few minutes away from the residence, next to the hotel Tipanier, and there is a dolphin center at the bottom of the hill of the residence. The Tiki village, about 20 minutes drive, is worth going to to watch the best Tahitian dance show on the island. Snack Mahana is my favorite lunch spot on the beach, less than 10 minutes from the house. The little shopping center in Haapiti, 5 minutes away, has a grocery store, ATM,cafes, shops, a few restaurants and a gas station with a mechanic.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: I am a world traveler, originally from Italy. I like to spend time in beautiful places and share them with like minded people. I have a home in Mill Valley California which is also on VRBO #360560, and a home in Rome, Italy. This little gem in Moorea, a half hour ferry ride from the main island of Tahiti, is my special little retreat in the sun, to get away from the cold of winter.

Why French Polynesia:
Moorea is one of the more beautiful places I have seen in my travels. The people are laid back and nice, the climate is mild and the ocean is clean. There are few tourists, so it is still very 'real', without being third world because it is French. The restaurants serve great food, and the healthcare is good in case I need it. There are many outdoor activities available, like hiking, biking, surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as my favorite, Tahitian dancing. The house is within a gated residenceal area, so it is totally private and safe for a single woman like me. The neighbors are mostly couples and families. The caretaker and his wife are helpful if I need anything and there is a fitness facility which I like to use when it rains. The Intercontinental hotel is at the bottom of the hill if I want some action. They rent paddle boards and kayaks, have a happy hour at sunset and a good restaurant. A small shopping center with a supermarket is 5 minutes away and there are a number of good restaurants in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The reason I chose this property over others is the security of the gated residence, the site, which is very beautiful and although not directly on the beach, the beach is just down the hill. The hill itself offers great hiking right of out my front door. The villas, designed by a well known French architect, are very tasteful, beautifully landscaped, and have all the modern amenities. My villa has only 2one neighbor, and is very quiet and private.
