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

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
