Gerard is great as a host. He even offered to do my laundry. Bicycle and WiFi included you wont find anything better (cheaper) on the island. I had the garden bungalow with a small kitchen and a great outdoor shower bathroom. The upper bungalow moved down in a landslide and now leans onto the lower bungalow. Looks a bit scary... More

We loved our stay in studio #2. This was our first stop on our two week junket to French Polynesia. We flew from the east coast of the US & had been on the road for about a day when we reached Vaitape. Gerard was there as promised with his four-legged side-kick to pick us up at the dock. He...

I originally booked a garden bungalow but because of some maintenance works Gérard put me up in his nearby house on the waterfront which has private area as well as a very spacious shared kitchen / living room and a balcony with a very nice view. Gèrard is a great host who makes sure that you make the most out... More

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

The price & accommodation was great. Gerard is completely trustworthy.he arranged everything we asked of him - restaurants, tours, etc. Thank you Gerard for... More

We spent the first 3 nights of our honeymoon week in Bora Bora at Sunset Hill Lodge, in bungalow 2. Gerard picked us up at the ferry as promised, and offered to drive us to our next hotel at the end. 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
