This was our 2nd long stay (9 weeks in Feb-April 2014 + 9weeks in Oct-Dec 2015) with Isabelle and Jean-Paul. Both times we have enjoyed the great hospitability and service from our hosts. First trip I left my mobile in bungalow and got it from Tahiti airport same evening. 2nd trip 1 of our luggage was left in Paris and was delivered later to Moorea airport, which is far from bungalow. Both times the help from Isabelle and Jean-Paul was invaluable!
The bungalow is great for 2 person especially now with aircon in the bed room. We also had our grown up dotter for 2 weeks living upstairs with just a fan to cool down. These long stays need a lot more than just weekend trips. And that was available for our needs.
The location is far from noisy turist areas and gives view to local people's way of life. The bungalow is by a side road, with the main building and fence is surrounding the area. Good condition, clean in and out. We prepared our meals, also great fish cooked in lemon juice without using any external energy. Kitchen is equipped with necessary machines. This is not a big kitchen for a crowd of people but has the necessary equipments for cooking. Dining area is outside on terrace. On windy or rainy day we took the table indoor. And there are mosquitos outside. Maybe a little square table inside would be a good idea?
Ok the fact is that the local shop is 2,5 km away and bigger super market 11,5 km. The same is valid for pizzerias restaurants etc.. But getting taxi to the restaurant...seems not possible. We did not rent car at all, but rented bicycles for the whole periods. Great exercise with shopping and did at least 7 times around the island plus many other bicycle rides. To our luck the mango season started and we could pick a lot of fruits by the road. Something you can not do with car ride. We also got fresh fruits from the garden from Isabelle and Jean-Paul.
Beach is not far and the bay is safe for snorkling and kayaking. There are a couple of nice waterfall paths on the way towards the harbour. Also other actions you can get information from Isabelle and Jean-Paul.
