"We loved the location which is easy walking distance in Papeete to the Market, Coast, Park, Notre Dame cathedral and other points of interest. Many good restaurants within easy walkijng distance. Close to the Ferry going to Moorea. The owners Julio and Deliah are wonderful and picked us up at the airport/took us to the Ferry dock when we left. We would definitely stay here again when we return."

"We originally booked this location for 4 nights, but after a flight cancellation, our trip was shortened to 3 nights. The property management company was great with communication. They accommodated the reduction in our stay without issue/penalty. The agent who checked us in/out was also nice and helpful. The only complaint we have relates to check-in/out fees. if you do not check-in/out between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm you are charged an additional $50.00 USD (and they do not provide any dropbox for the keys). Our flight arrived after 5:00 pm, requiring us to pay an approx. $50 USD fee. We also left at 6:30 am; requiring a second $50 USD fee. So, if you are booking this location, be sure to either check-in/out during their business hours or get ready to pay some additional fees. Don't bother asking for a waiver of these fees - none will be given."
