This small and cute bungalow for two people is on the reef side of a motu, surrounded by crystal blue waters and luscious green scenery. The property is 20 minutes away from the village of Tiputa so it is ideal for absolute relaxation. You’ll need to be mindful of grocery shopping and drinking the water though. Rise to the sun streaming through the double bedroom windows and fall asleep to the soft sound of the waves.
