It is the best place to buy clothes in Maharepa, Moorea. The town itself is very small. The woman who runs this is very friendly and knowledgeable. You can try on clothes in the back of the store.

The owner/manager was friendly, very helpful and no pressure as we figured out our souvenir needs. Good selection of unique and high quality merchandise at a reasonable price. We came back a second day because of how nicely we were treated. The rooster, hens and chicks in the large front yard made it perfect.
