We had actually booked with a major hotel on Bora Bora prior to leaving the States. While in Santa Monica spending a few days we decided to look again because we had changed our plans in California from a major hotel to a smaller hotel that was great. I had seen Sunset Hill on Trip Advisor while booking this trip... More

He recommended affordable places to eat and things to do around the island. He has a garage of bicycles... More

My husband and I stayed at Gerard's Sunset Hill Lodge for four nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. We used this as an excellent opportunity to explore the island. Gerard was great in recommending activities, restaurants and where to buy pearls. Although Gérard recently had a landslide destroy some of his property the room we stayed in was very... More

Simply excellent. The owner is really nice and helps you to make the most of your experience. He picked us up at the dock when we arrived and took us back when we left. The apartment is on the hill, but really close to the sea at the same time, so you can see wonderful sunsets. The apartment has all... More

We stayed a week in Studio 2 and had a wonderful time. The studio is really large, the deck/terrace is almost the same size as the apartment itself and the lounge is just beautiful. You can spend your evenings there with a drink, enjoy the view of the sea during breakfast and still be outside when it's raining as it... More

We stayed in studio 2 for a week in May 2014. The studio was spacious and clean, there was a table in the large covered terrace where we could eat breakfast and dinner while enjoying the view of the lagoon. Gerard is a very devote host, attentive to the need of his guests. He showed us around the island and... More

We had an excellent experience at Sunset Hill Lodge. Firstly, the lodge has the best Internet service in all of Bora Bora and I have been to Four Seasons and St. Regis. Recently there has been a landslide and so the garden has been temporarily distroyed, but even so the accomodations are still very comfortable. The Lodge is also near... More
