Titaua and her dogs are so welcoming and the lodge so idyllic with its lagoon/beach front location that we didn't want to leave after our 4 night stay. The lodge is 17km from Papeete, a short drive or about 30mins on the bus. Avoid travelling back on the bus from 3pm+ on school day. The scrum for the limited number of seats isn't worth it. Otherwise, travel to and from the city was easy and cheap. The beach is busy at the weekend but otherwise peaceful with beautiful views across the lagoon to Moorea. We even saw a whale out to sea on our last day. Titaua was happy to drive us to the local supermarket for supplies or it's about a 30min walk along the busy road. Titaua welcomed us into her home making us feel like we experienced genuine Tahitian hospitality.
