We spent three days in a nice, simple apartment right on the waterfront. Gérard was very friendly and the recommended full-day lagoon tour was a great experience. The complimentary use of canoes and bikes was a nice feature. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and the well-equiped kitchen made cooking easy. Sunset Hill Lodge is located in walking-distance to Vaitape... More

I would like to say something but as far as I'm concern there is nothing to be said. We stayed here for two weeks in early july and it was just perfect. The host Gerard and his dog are so adorable and will be please to help you planning a dive or a trip around the island. You get more... More

We stayed at SHL for 6 days as a base while exploring all over Bora Bora. The location in Vaitape is excellent as it is next to a Total dock, close to restaurants and grocery stores, and easy for pick-up to various tours. The owner, Gerard, is friendly and has negotiated great rates for his clients for tours, as well... More

Gerard, the owner, was a wonderful host. We stayed in his units on top of a small hill. The units were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The air conditioning was welcomed, and the large covered deck with the view of the ocean was quite nice. We spent most of our time on the deck, enjoying our morning coffee, eating our meals,...

When I first thought about taking my wife to Bora Bora I thought it would be impossible financially. After a lot of research I found SHL and read the reviews, people were not wrong!! Gerard is an excellent laid back host; he picked us up from the airport shuttle boat no problem. He wasn't there when the boat arrived, but... More

We use hotels mainly as a base of operations on our trips. SHL was good for us due to its location in Vaitape - near the main island port, grocery store, Mt. Pahia trailhead, shops, vehicle rental, etc., all within walking distance. SHL has units at the edge of the lagoon and a few units 0.1 mile or so from... More

We had booked a bungalow but were upgraded to a studio because a landslide had damaged the bungalow. The studio is big with a large terrace. Highly recommended place to stay at if you don't fancy one of the luxury hotel. We were welcomed by Gerard and his dog Fifi at the pier and we want to thank him for... More
