The home was part of a post cruise outing when returning to Papeete, what a treat to visit a great find. The tour was led by a delightful women who has a great passion for what she is showing.

The home is well preserved, is stunning with breezes coming through the home and very interesting. The tour guide was very informative and gracious. She gave us an expedited version of the... More

While not included in all around the island tours, it is worth seeing if you have the chance. Yes, the house itself is a reconstruction, but to exact specifications of the original which was located where the main road is now.
