We liked it here so much that we stayed twice during our month-long trip to Polynesia with our 10month-old baby. We preferred not to stay in Papeete itself (lacks charm, is too expensive, and polluted). Following Fred's advice, we rented a car for 5 days and toured around Tahiti Nui and Tahiti Iti. The car was an expense we hadn't anticipated but it worked out fine since we were paying less for accommodation than on other islands, and we were able to do bulk grocery shopping. Other guests who didn't rent a car really seemed to get bored after a couples of days, and they missed out on some spectacular scenery around the island !
As other reviewers have already mentioned, the hosts Fred and Christelle were lovely and very helpful (lending us a baby seat for the car, for example), and the ambience in the communal kitchen/dining areas was friendly - good for exchanging travel advice, and generally relaxing after a hard day's touristing.
It's not a hotel and doesn't pretend to be, but we were very comfortable in our room, and the kitchen facilities were perfectly adequate to store/cook our food. The fresh fruit at breakfast was always delicious, and the lush gardens were an unexpected bonus !
