We had a perfect stay at the waterfront apartment. We traveled as a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids age 8 and 11). As so many other reviewers have said, Gerard Bion is the perfect host! We emailed to let Gerard know our arrival flight, and he met us in Vaitape where the Air Tahiti shuttle boat from... More

I stayed at the waterfront Villa Moana and loved it! As previous guests have mentioned Gerard is an excellent host, picks you up at the Vaitape Quay, points out grocery stores and restaurants as he takes you to your accommodation. The apartment is simple but large and clean, on the waterfront with a great little terrace. Full kitchen so that... More

The flat is clean, well decorated and in a great location. You are on a hill so get a great soviet of sunset... More

Very nice studios! Gerard is so amazing and allways helpful. He has good contacts for diving and other activities. Very good location! Near of everything, Sunset Hill is perfect for people who loves to live the place, the culture and the nature.

It's clearly done for the right reasons - Gerard - francais d'origine - has a fascinating local history going back to 1974 - and he is genuinely solicitous about his guests - in marked contrast to the shake-down licensed taxi extortion practiced locally! Return taxi from here to the Sofitel for an evening meal and entertainment - 7km by Google... More

My wife and i stayed here in November. Gerrard was very helpful. He was there with his dog waiting at the dock for us. How nice to have such a nice host to help us organize everything. Great suggestions on eating we did our own cooking but did go out to eat one night at the bora bora yacht club... More

We stayed at Sunset Hill Lodge for 6 nights in November. Gerrard cut us a great deal as we were on a tight budget. The waterfront apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped with a great view and good access to the lagoon. We had use of kayaks and bikes while we were there which both came in really handy...

Walking distance to town, grocery stores, beach shuttle, water view. If you are looking for a low cost alternative in Bora Bora, this is it. Gerard is amamzing and he will take care of you from tours, to resturant reservations. Thank you Gerard for a, lovely time. Our 5 days here were fantasic!

We couldn't have picked a better independent place to stay in Bora Bora. All the organisation with Gerard pre-arrival worked perfectly and when we arrived everything was well, too. We stayed at a new place (Villa Moana) that Gerard is finishing up now. It's right by the lagoon (the dark blue water not the light baby blue) and had a... More
