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

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

Sunset Hill lodge was full when we called owner Gerard."I think we can work something out" he said on the phone. He arranged for us to stay at a friend's villa while the owner was away. The price & accommodation was great. Gerard is completely trustworthy.he arranged everything we asked of him - restaurants, tours, etc. Thank you Gerard for... More
