Fabulous experience! Beautiful quiet place. One thing: realize that Fare Vaihere is not at Maharepa (this is their PO box), the Fare is at the entrance of the Opunohu Bay-around 20-30 minutes drive from the boat and in fact, taking a taxi from the boat was a little bit cheaper than what was proposed by the hosts. The bungalows are great and full of welcoming flowers upon arrival. The breakfast (included) is incredible with attention paid to what people like or would like to try (fresh fruits, different local jams and fresh bread). The pier is just at the right place and in the evenings we had visits (by chance, but every nights...) of turtles, black and white tip sharks, a ray, trumpet fish and a pleitore of "aquarium fishes". We had an incredible dolphins visit and one of us kayaked so close to them she was even scared. Free access to kayaks and bikes was also a great addition to this place. Philippe was very helpful organizing a rental car the day we wanted one, a paddle boarding experience (where we swam with rays and sharks) and a diving trip for one of us (including delaying our check out time while waiting for the diver). Dinner was too pricey for our budget so we ate food on our front porches (we had 2 bungalows by each others) and Philippe was very gracious in providing us with bottle and can openers. Their dog Paopao is a delight, very well behaved and friendly (but knowing his rules). Except dinner (but we did not try), prices are well deserved. If you go you also must try a little snack (name?) by the "public beach" (on your left getting out of the Fare and mountain side) and the Mahana Snack (the other direction, at the end of the Opunohu bay) for their incredible food and friendliness (curry shrimps- local production- sooo excellent we went twice with our bikes from the Fare). Friends of ours (from the US) went twice to Fare Vaihere and we hope to do this also.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

The pleasant ambiance, around the four Polynesian style bungalows located in a flowered garden along the lagoon, will help you to relax. Imagine you just get up and enjoy the view of a lagoon so flat that there is no other way than jumping in, to meet colored fish, turtles or rays. Then it's time to go for breakfast, and later for your Atv or whales watching tour or scuba diving course ... more less
