This villa far exceeded our expectations both in terms of its management and its superb location in Moorea.
Laurence is an excellent manager and hostess. She guided us every step of the way from the booking process in the months preceding our stay to when we said our goodbyes.
We were met by her at the ferry terminal in Moorea and greeted with fresh fruit and cold water!
We were then escorted to the villa which is roughly about a 10-15 min drive from the terminal.
The villa's location is superb: it is in the village of Maharepa, one of the larger villages in Moorea.
All amenities (e.g bank, grocery, restaurants, shopping) are within walking distance.
The villa itself comfortably accommodated our family of 4 adults and 3 young children.
The furnishings and decor were tasteful. The kitchen was well equipped.
One thing to note is the lack of a clothes' dryer in the villa. However with the high cost of electricity in Moorea this was forgivable. Mother nature also ensured that we had adequate heat and wind to do the job!
Our kids are quite young and so one caution I would mention, should you have young children,is to discourage access to the mezzanine level as the staircase is quite steep and open on one side.
However even with our curious children, with so many outdoor activities in this villa and Moorea in general, their interest in the mezzanine level rapidly waned!
The pool was a definite advantage for our family (with young kids) and was actually one of the main reasons we booked this villa rather than another villa. It was well maintained and of adequate size.The beach front in this property was of adequate size with white sand.
You can snorkel right in front of the villa and see a wide variety of fish.
There was also a kayak available.
The property itself had many coconut trees and a mango tree bearing fruit which was wonderful!
In terms of meals : we found it very easy to buy from the local restaurants and also did some wonderful fresh tuna bbq on the beach in front of the villa.
Laurence also organized for us to have some meals catered by Monia T. Her food was absolutely yummy and well worth trying.
Moorea is an island of unspoilt beauty filled with wonderful people.
There is so much to do and see. Staying at this villa was undoubtedly the reason why our vacation was the best family vacation to date!!
Thank you Laurence and your team at EcoLodge!!
