The host is offering a room at her spacious villa with a stunning garden and an outdoor swimming pool. It’s located in a very quiet neighborhood, up in the hills. Thanks to its location, the villa offers fantastic views of both the sea and mountains. The city center is just a five-minute walk away. It’s recommended to rent a motorbike or a car though because the house is on an elevated ground. The host is staying in the villa so she is always available to advise her guests on where to go and what to see. Also, you can ask her about the car rental!

The whole bungalow with an access to a swimming pool is for rent! The place is perfect for two guests. There is no A/C but, because it’s located on a hill, there is a cool breeze all the time so it never gets too hot. This accommodation also welcomes you to the beautiful views of the Moorea Island and the sea. Even though the house is rather small, it has everything you need, including WiFi, dining room, kitchen, and bathroom! Most important of all, you’ll have complete privacy.

Let's make it known
Papeete may not be the most famous place in the world, but it has all reasons to become one. It offers breathtaking views and is a great destination for surfers and fans of other water activities. The city itself is quiet, peaceful, and full of local markets and restaurants. Some of the must-see places are the Presidential Palace, Cathedral of Notre Dame, the waterfront esplanade, and the Papeete Tahiti Temple. And, as presented above, there’s plenty of lovely places to stay in!
