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

Unfortunately, we did not find the owner upon arrival in the harbour and walked to the appartment. There was no sign so we had to ask quite a lot of people to actually find it. Noone was there so we waited for one hour, walked back to the harbour, still didn´t see anyone waiting for us and walked back. After... More

Then I'll be on the quay maybe 5 minutes after the arrival of the shuttle and wait for an hour for 3 shuttles...when I decide to come back home I found these , guys...About... More

We had a perfect stay at the waterfront apartment. We traveled as a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids age 8 and 11). As so many other reviewers have said, Gerard Bion is the perfect host! We emailed to let Gerard know our arrival flight, and he met us in Vaitape where the Air Tahiti shuttle boat from... More

I stayed at the waterfront Villa Moana and loved it! As previous guests have mentioned Gerard is an excellent host, picks you up at the Vaitape Quay, points out grocery stores and restaurants as he takes you to your accommodation. The apartment is simple but large and clean, on the waterfront with a great little terrace. Full kitchen so that... More

We stayed in a studio apartment at sunset hill lodge for 2 nights and it was wonderful. We have been travelling for 4 months, so wanted a place we could just chill for a couple of days. The flat is clean, well decorated and in a great location. You are on a hill so get a great soviet of sunset... More

Very nice studios! Gerard is so amazing and allways helpful. He has good contacts for diving and other activities. Very good location! Near of everything, Sunset Hill is perfect for people who loves to live the place, the culture and the nature.

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...
