We spent two amazing days at Villa Mitirapa. This really is a villa - you have a kitchen an outdoor living area (with a roof and two bedrooms, right on the lagoon. The proprietor is just the nicest person you would want to meet. Tahiti Iti is a much more relaxed vibe than Tahiti - similar to the outward islands. We had just come from a week on Bora Bora and did not want the hustle of Papeete. This was perfect. Stay here and relax or drive 10 km down the road to Teehupoo beach or go the other direction to Tautira. With a kayak at your disposal, the plunge pool and the Balinese influenced environment just staying at home felt pretty good. I would definitely stay here again, For the price this is an incredible value.
