Iam a surfer, 31 years old from Germany travelling around the world for surfing and Iam really deeply grateful to meet such an open minded guy as Mark is and his very lovely bungalow accommodation.
Honestly at the beginning of my short island trip I wasn´t sure to spent my time and money at Marks place because I read all these negative comments at tripadvisor. There were also a group of people who told me I should not go there but god bless I decided to make my own experience and it was totally worth.
When you just arrive Marks place you can feel the good vibe of these place. Marks place has a huge peaceful garden with 8 different full equipped bungalows on it. All the bungalows were built by Mark himself and no one is similar to the next bungalow. Each one is full of lovely designed details. You can really feel that Mark loves his passion as a craftsmen:) My private bungalow was very clean and also very safe. In my opinion you don´t have to lock your door. The prices of the bungalows in comparison to the rest of the island or Tahiti are very reasonable.
If you are a surfer perfect, welcome to paradise. Rent a kayak by Mark and go for the outer reef break so called "Haapiti". If you are not a surfer it is simply an ideal place to relax and find yourself.
So finally I can totally recommend Mark and "Marks place" to everybody. Don´t listen to the negative comments - there are no words for these bunch of people in my opinion. Go out and make your own experience and I am sure you won´t regret it.

It works on south swell generated from depressions that go under New Zealand. When the swell maxes Haapiti out go round to Taeme which works of big south swells that wrap round the island.
