The room was a little disappointing compared to everything else that was so nice and well arranged. A bit expensive for a hostel, but still worth the money. (Everything is expensive in French Polynesia.)
The garden is wonderful with different tropical fruits like the owner more than happy offer his guests. Everything (except the room) are well thought out and tastefully designed.

My family and I had a great time. Thierry was very good with our two young kids. The fresh fruit from the gardens was a highlight of the stay. Our kids enjoyed playing soccer in the open yard and swinging in the hammocks. Great value, clean and comfortable.

Staff seemed to get upset when I checked the bill.
Great Location just in front of surf-break, good value for money given location.

The staff was excellent, great breakfasts and simple pleasures. Excellent location for surf and easy walk to small restaurants and grocery store. Perfect blend, better than a hostile, yet not as expensive as a hotel.

Excellent location, just across the road from the best beach break in Tahiti. Good surfboards for rent at a reasonable price. Very friendly and helpful staff.

If I have to say anything negative, then it would be that the cost of getting to/from the airport to the lodge is quite high for a budet consious backpacker.
Very friendly staff. Thierry, Moeata and Moehau really made us feel at home. More fresh fruit than we could eat from the garden every day. Bedrooms basic and clean, great facilities downstairs. Surf beach/break 5 mins walk across the road. Break is very busy. Supermarket with good selection 5 mins walk also...this will help cut down on costs...Tahiti is not cheap! You can get public buses on the main road if you want to travel around the island...the slow way! Thanks again guys...Louise and Daniel

Privates problem between staff and owner exposed to clients, Go talk in private people are in holidays and don't want to do the police between staff. Embarrassing situation with lot of hypocrisy... If you plan to go out at night can be a problem because private propriety, can't open portal without staff, need another system like card or a digital code to be more free, sometime you can feel oppressed by the permanent presence of owner. Need to control the invoice so we saved 80Us$ : owner added services which we didn't use, like breakfast, internet... Kitchen and living room also closed at night if staff is not here(Staff wait for you until you go bed before close everything) Little advice from airport : catch a Taxi, it's 4 times less expensive than the transfer offered at the Lodge. Better to rent a car if you stay a few days in Tahiti and plan to visit this beautiful Island.
Close to the surf break, fresh fruit from garden, nice quiet place, Nice kitchen, barbecue, snooker, hamac, nice terrace.

The shared toilet facilities. In saying that they were very clean hygienic. Just to far to walk. Plus the steep staircases.
Very friendly owner and staff, the fact that lots of tropical fruits are grown on site and offered to guests , free. Close to beach.

Just the toilets downstairs.
It is a beautiful house surrounded by a nice garden, with gorgeus mountains in the background and close to a beautiful black sand beach. The common spaces are huge, very comfortable and well mantained. Reccomended.
