We live in Bora Bora and would like to take the opportunity to travel for a weekend in some other French Polynesian islands. Our first choice was to visit Huanine. Its a good feeling to try a little bit of other island experience and get out in bora bora for a while. I am very much impressed when we stayed... More

I adored this place, it was paradise. On a trip around 9 French Polynesian Islands my stay here wins as my absolute favourite & is probably the nicest place I have ever stayed on my travels. I loved the accommodation, the setting, the beaches, the sun rises, the moon rise, snorkelling, paddling and Kim, Walter and Daisy were just great.... More

Au Motu Mahare is absolutely beautiful. You have a whole wee island to yourself- an amazing lagoon one side and a private beach the other. This place is paradise. We had our own bungalow and separate bungalow bathroom- there are only 2 spots to stay here so we were exceptionally lucky to have booked here! The hosts (Walter, Kim &... More

Trip Advisor doesn't have enough stars for how much we loved this place! Kim and Walter were wonderful hosts and they have created a slice of paradise! We spent 5 nights in one of the 2 thatched-roofed bungalows and enjoyed the quiet motu, took walks on the little beach near the ocean, took the kayak out and paddled in the... More

Great family pension with very nice tenant who are extremely helpful in explaining activities and organizing trips for you. The pension has only two bungalows so it is very quiet and you have the whole place for yourself. Very tidy and well maintained. We experienced only two downsides which were the moskitos (which can be handled with the right moskito... More

Iaorana Walter, Kim & Daisy. Sorry for the late review (stayed May 2013). I loved this place and can't return soon enough. I had an early arrive on Huahine so Kim arranged with a local tour company to store my luggage while on a tour (Mau'ruru Roa Kim). Kim picked me up after the tour and took me shopping for... More

Imagine your very own tropical island paradise. Living in a thatched-roofed hut in a picture perfect coconut grove on a private island off the shores of the garden island, Huahine. Sandy beach under coconut palms, crystal waters and iridescent tropical fish, spectacular sunrises and beautiful sunsets over lush green mountains. Brilliant stars on an ink-black sky. With all your basic... More

Perfect quality for the price you pay. Very friendly owners which are always available for questions and help but always on the backgrounds, respecting your privacy. They keep attention to the small details e.g. lighting the mosquito coil in the bathroom even before you'll be awake. The kitchen and eating area is shared with the other fare guests, and the...

We've been in contact with Kim prior to our visit, which was already very pleasant. And it only got better when we stayed at Au Motu Mahare! Kim, Daisy and Walter are very nice, friendly and helpful people, they make your stay excellent! You have to cook yourself and make your one coconutmilk (with the help of Walter) but we... More

If you don't like big resorts and prefer self-catering, Motu Mahare is a place for you. We spent there 5 nights and it was not too long. We took a car for one day to drive around the main island and one day we used for a boat trip. Rest of the time we spent for snorkelling and kayaking around... More
