I just returned from my 2nd visit to Te Nunoa and couldn’t be happier.
The first time I visited was a couple years ago with my husband. This time I brought my 8-year old son.
The first thing I noticed was how much the garden had filled in. It is just so lovely and peaceful. It was the perfect place to relax with a book.
Again, when we arrived, there was French bread, juice and coffee, along with grapefruit and bananas waiting for us. I so appreciate this little touch as it allows me to relax a bit and not feel rushed to get to the market. I knew James & Laurel had children. What I didn't know is how amazingly well their children would get along with mine. It was fantastic. Together the children, snorkeled, played ball, climbed tress and really had a wonderful time. I even had time to read a couple of books!
The beach across the street from Te Nunoa is gorgeous. Even with it being school vacation, it felt like the beach was private. We had it to ourselves most everyday. There were are couple days we saw some locals as they returned from fishing. As they were cleaning their bounty in the lagoon, we were lucky enough to see a family of sting rays standing by waiting for few scraps.
What I love about Te Nunoa is the feeling you are living on Moorea and not just visiting it. The bungalow is beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen is small but has everything you need. Eating out is expensive in Moorea so cooking at home saves a lot of money.
Te Nunoa is a gem. It is my go to place for rest & relaxation; can't wait for our next visit!
