Beautiful private villa beach front located on a private island. Motu Fareone on which Villa Corallina is located, is a stunning little island inlaid like a green jewel into crystal-clear, turquoise waters of Moorea's famous lagoon, just across the channel from the main island of Moorea that offers a haven of peace and intimacy. Motu Fareone is not just any resort. It is a private island where the owners live and rent out just that single Villa to their lucky guests.

Living on Hawaii Island, we're spoiled, and Villa Corallina is beyond beautiful. Marco & Tatiana are excellent hosts. We can't wait to return.

This was our WOW holiday. My wife and I have had the privilege to celebrate our wedding anniversary in this fantastic motu next to Moorea island. We can't imagine the better place in the world for such and other occasions - simply the ideal one - 1) no crowd of tourists, just you, hosts and very quiet neighbours; 2) two steps away from several snorkelling areas (better to say large aquarium) with complimentary kayaks; 3) boat taxi to Moorea island with local boy Tere, whenever you want to go (once you are here you will realise that you don't want to go anywhere else); 4) this place would not be the perfect without super hosts Marco and Tatyana, who answer any of your request and help to arrange any excursions you want, by the margin cheaper than you could make it directly - don't book those in advance, ask Marco instead. Also our special thanks to Marco for our late night celebratory dinner ordered and delivered by boat from the Hibiscus hotel restaurant across the channel. We have almost cried at the end of our holiday, it is how we didn't want to leave this small islet in heaven and where we dream to return in future.

If you want an Americanized version of French Polynesia, this is NOT the place for you. If you like the hotel experience with all its associated amenities, this is NOT the place for you. But if you want to truly experience Moorea and all its beauty, then Villa Corallina may be just the paradise for you. Coming here was a dream come true for my husband and me. From the moment of our first contact by email, Marco was gracious and always helpful. He responded quickly and graciously to every email, whether the email was about the rental details or about the one hundred and one questions I had about everything else involved when traveling to Moorea for the first time. A couple of weeks before our arrival, he emailed me saying that he would be gone during our stay in Moorea, but that he was leaving us in the capable hands of his son, Maui. Our flight was late, and the line through customs took forever, so we missed the ferry and because of that, the taxi that Maui had prearranged to deliver us to our meeting place couldn’t pick us up. I texted Maui the situation and his response was immediate.... When we finally arrived, it was Maui and a young, very helpful friend who were there waiting for us. From that moment on, Maui went above and beyond to ensure that our time there was wonderful. The villa itself is beautiful. I immediately felt at home. The only thing I wish I had done differently was to book the master bedroom suite, which is in a separate bungalow. Instead, we stayed in the bedroom on the upper floor of the main house. It was very nice, comfortable and roomy, but the master suite was gorgeous and I wished we could have spent our nights there. Our days were spent relaxing on our own little piece of beach, snorkeling, kayaking and swimming in the gorgeous pristine lagoon and exploring the beautiful motu. Maui would check on us daily and even offered to guide us for a day touring Moorea, to take us to swim with the sting rays and to snorkel the coral gardens. Of course we accepted it all. He contacted a local fisherman, and arranged for my husband to spend the day fishing. And there was so much more that he did... I did have a major complaint and told Maui that I was very unhappy about the situation. He was immediately concerned and said “Tell me, what can I do?” I told him that the time on “our” motu was going much too quickly, that motu-time was surely accelerated somehow.” He agreed that that was indeed true and the only remedy was for us to return soon. I hope that we will. I am sorry that we did not get a chance to meet Marco and hope that he is well. But he should be so proud of his son, who is a true ambassador of not only Villa Corallina, but also of Moorea and the French Polynesian culture. I can close my eyes and imagine myself still there; I can look at our photographs and linger over them, imagining the sounds and the sights. It’s not quite the same but it will have to do for now.

My wife Julia and I had looked at several places for our honeymoon; mostly of the cookie cutter bungalow variety. We decided that we didn't wan't that canned experience and didn't want to be so close to everybody else on our honeymoon. Enter Motu Fareone and Villa Corallina. From the very start, Marco was very responsive and made booking the villa very easy via email. I couldn't have asked for better customer service from him.He even let us know exactly what to expect as far as timing and costs of the taxi to the motu. When we arrived at the Sunset Restaurant, there was Marco waiting for us with his little aluminum boat that would be our trusty ferry for the next week. And to behold the motu across the shimmering lagoon was truly an amazing experience after having looked and dreamed of the pictures on the website. Let me totally clear - pictures can do no justice to the beauty that lies in that southern Pacific heaven. Before crossing to the Villa, Marco gave us the rundown on the local market and brought us across the way for our first trip to the grocery. What a great grocery. Incredibly fresh baguettes, fish, ribs, etc. All you could want and more - which we did because we planned on cooking a bunch. When we finally got to the island, Marco gave us a tour of the place and it was breathtaking. Everything you could imagine, this place was and more. The main house is unbelievable, with a fully open "wall" and tropical wood construction everywhere else. The master suite and bathroom were equally awe-inspiring, with gorgeous views off the front porch and a tropical feel to the shower (surrounded by coral and fresh flowers!). The views and the Villa are more than anybody could deserve ... you almost feel like you should just pack up and go home because there is no way you could be worthy enough to appreciate this slice of pure perfection. But, alas you must stay! The days here are as you would think a paradise to be. Awaking to the sharp sun and the fragrant smell of flowers right outside your room, you venture to see the sparkling blue lagoon not steps from taking your breakfast on the connected outdoor patio (with a grill, perfect for fresh fish or New Zealand ribs). And do take it in till your heart's content. It is a perfect location for snorkeling, with untold life right there beneath the surface. A whole other world. As if the one above the water's surface wasn't enough! Again, as though Marco wasn't already helpful enough in booking and setting up the whole thing, his helpfulness extends to your time on the motu. He was always at the ready to teach us the outrigger, ferry us to the dive shop, bring us across for groceries, or just to check up on us and make sure we were having a great time. Which we were! It was exactly what we wanted; that feeling of isolation that we knew couldn't be found on the cookie cutter bungalow was right here on our motu. The lights going off at 11 pm was a dream come true. Never before have I seen a sky fabulous. It was more than we could have hoped for. Thank you so much, Marco, and we hope to find our way back someday to that little island that we loved so much! Thomas and Julia Miller ~ New Orleans
