“Perfect beach house”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

This was our best accommodation in all of French Polynesia because it was a whole beach house just for us, and there was only one other family living next to us. They offer free wifi (great for calling home when you've been away for a long time), free laundry and bikes to rent for free if you want to go to the city center.

The kitchen if fully equipped so if you are just able to get some good food (not so great variety in the shops in the city center), you could make great meals and enjoy it on the porch of your beach house.

GOOD:
· The bungalow was big, clean and with refrigerator, kitchen, safe. Built relatively new. There are some kayaks, bikes. About 8 TV programs, only french. Good internet connection.
· The transport is organised. You are welcomed by the polynesian managers. The owner doesn’t live on site!
· There is a small snackbar, just a few meters on the beach. Good fish.
· Still good value. Close to paradise for the money you pay.
NORMAL:
· The beach is shallow, clean, with some manta’s sometimes.
· The manager said, the water from the tap is not drinkable. It looked good and the taste was okay. The owner didn’t give a special advice. Maybe they want to sell their bottled water...
BAD:
· Not to many good corals, a few fish.
· The mountainbikes are in bad condition. Brakes work, but gears are broken. There is a small hill between the residence and the village! Maintenance??? Is it that expensive to keep them running??
· The beachvolleyball is not on the beach, its fixed in the water!!?? Although there would be a small place at the beach to set it up.
· The kayaks aren’t good quality, like “ocean-kayak”. Tricky to handle with waves, no holes , so the water cant run off.
· You cant feed your refrigerator enough, as there are no sufficient shops. Even tomatoes are difficult to buy. Cucumbers and bananas are easy to get. Prices are high.
· When you close the mosquito netted windows in the bungalow, there are a few blades in every window ,where they come in -daily! not reasoned made.
· The 2 houses are set together a bit to close. You hear your neighbour even with closed windows. Therefore it should have been better to plan the bedrooms opposite.
· Almost every house has a minimum of 1 dog, but they are relaxed.
CONCLUSIONS:
· A good place for staying, if you like privacy. Still good value, but they could care a bit more. Coming back? MAUPITI: YES; PENSION: YES.
