We rented this villa for 5 nights and wish we could have stayed for a month. It is spacious, comfortable, and had everything we needed. You have your own, private beachfront and there is a kayak and paddle boat. Right outside your door is fantastic snorkeling. Clement picked us up at the ferry even though the ferry was 30 minutes late, in the pouring rain, with a smile on his face and took us to rent a car that he had arranged for and negotiated a discount for us. He drove with us to the house, explained everything we needed to know and made sure that everything was there for us. Throughout our stay he was incredibly helpful and responsive - each time we emailed him with a request for a reservation or an item we needed, he took care of it immediately. He made dinner reservations, tour reservations, and each of his suggestions was perfect. He even drove over with his favorite insect repellant, as there is a lot of Chikungunya in French Polynesia right now. The town of Maharepa is literally a two minute walk and has a grocery store with delicious fresh ahi and fresh bread as well as everything else you need. The Moorea Beach Cafe is a short walk and has delicious food - the owner previously owned several restaurants in NYC. There is also shopping in Maharepa so if you're only there for a few days, you really don't need a car. The house is perfectly located in that regard. My husband and I were there with our two children, 23 and 26, so everyone had a bedroom and lots of space as well as great communal space. The wifi worked well throughout the house.

It was our first time to rent a house. My wife and I and our 4 daughters ages 9-17. We were so pleased!!! Laurence was truly amazing and took care of all our needs from arrival to departure. House is in the perfect location- walking 20 yards to City Center. We suggest a car for at least a day or so- you can actually walk to the car rental place called Alberts which is across from the Pearl Resort. We will return and stay at this home in a heartbeat!! Highlight of our trip--jet skii to swim with black tip sharks and stingrays- they do not bite- absolutely no worries. We toured all the big name resorts while there, but the house was the overall best value and location hands down. The public beaches are absolutely incredible with multiple shades of blue, our photos look like postcards truly.

We liked the restaurant across the street , Carmelina's it was the best for breakfast and lunch. my family loved it and we will be back.
there was no video library , wifi could only be accessed on the back deck but overall a great place to stay.

We stayed at Enjoy Villas for a week and were so happy to have found it. Clement picked us up at the ferry dock and made sure we were settled and comfortable and had what we needed. He checked in with us during the week and assisted in getting tours set up for us. The house is right in town so a quick walk to the grocery store, restaurants, and shopping. There is great snorkeling right from the beach! There is a bit of traffic on the road at the start and end of the work day but we were not bothered by it and the gate ensures that children can't get to the street.
We will certainly return to this fantastic location!

I did make it clear in an email to the agent from TBD rentals that our our primary requirement was 'comfortable snorkeling from beach at our accommodation'
Some of the phrases the agent used in describing the property in a series of emails were: 'private beach and great snorkeling' and 'Perfect swimming and snorkeling and' Amazing swimming and snorkeling.'
When Clement, the property manager showed us round the property he indicated a patch of water at least 200 metres away from the beach at the villa. Not only was that further than I can comfortably swim but also to get there one had to cross a channel with a fair amount of boat traffic including speeding jet skis.
In fact we did find that there were a number of pretty small fish to be seen fairly close to shore at the drop-off - pleasant but not spectacular.
The property itself needs some maintenance. The downstairs bedroom does not have AC.
In one of the upstairs bedrooms the head of bed is under a beam at head height - so if standing up when getting out of bed one is in serious danger of banging one's head.
Unfortunately the doors do not have insect screens. A lot of the crockery was chipped.
However the appliances all worked well. We were generously supplied with dishwasher pills and bin bags. The AC was effective in the living area and two upstairs bedrooms.
The verandah downstairs and the beach were pleasant to sit on with sea breezes and plenty of seating.
Clement, the property manager was very responsive and obliging. He looked after us well when he picked us up from the ferry and was always available and helpful when we needed him.

We had an amazing time staying at the house. It was the best snorkeling we have experienced with beautiful lagoon right in front of the house. Very convenient location with stores in walking distance from the house. Clement was always very helpful giving us rides and providing useful information around the island.

Great position, right in town but no noise, snorkelling from the beach, beautiful views and we just loved our stay at your villa which was fully equipped with everything that 5 adults needed.

Our villa was perfect for the 10 of us (9 adults, 1 child). The villa is conveniently located up the road from banks, cafes, and a grocery store. Being fully furnished, we were easily able to buy our food from the grocery store, or local fresh fruit vendors and prepare it ourselves. The private beach was a huge hit. We spent countless hours in the water, canoeing and snorkelling in the reef a mere 100m from our beach. Often we took the canoes out to the reef and then jumped in the water to snorkel. Being from Australia we were a little cautious of swimming across the deep channel to the reef, particularly without flippers. Some googling revealed, however, the Tahiti's wildlife is much friendlier than ours and shark attacks are virtually non-existent here.
*Note: unfortunately there is only one double paddle for the two canoes, and snorkelling equipment is not supplied. Best to bring your own from home as we found it quite expensive to buy bits and pieces in Moorea.

House exceeded expectations and was perfect for our family stay in Moorea. The house was clean, rooms were great, and the location was perfect. Close to stores and restaurants made it very walkable. The pool was small and unnecessary and the snorkeling outside the house was good, but not great. Still a great value and excellent location!

We were two couples who stayed here for ten days. We booked the house after a few emails were answered by Clement. We were met at the ferry by Clement and taken straight to our accommodation. We had a few questions while staying in the house and Clement answered them all quickly by email. The house is large, with plenty of doors to open to get a nice breeze through the house. There is everything you need to cater for yourselves. The oven and hob are gas - a new experience for me and I'm glad my husband was there to get the gas oven going! There are two single kayaks, one paddle board and one windsurfer without its perspex window. We used them all as we explored the surrounding area. Snorkelling was good - there are plenty of fish to see. We spent a lot of time in the in-ground swimming pool, particularly when the wind was a bit too strong to snorkel or kayak. The house is ideally situated as it's a short walk to a supermarket, banks, a bakery and a few other shops that sell souvenirs. Clement took us back to the ferry at the end of our stay.

We stayed for 3 days in March, 2017 with another couple – prior to our cruise on the Paul Gaugin. We arrived by ferry from Tahiti and Clement picked us up. After 27 hours of travel, the Villa was a wonderful place to relax and adjust to the time change. The space was more than adequate for the 4 of us. Beds were comfortable and it was great to have a full kitchen. We were able to eat most meals in and truly enjoyed several restful days. Groceries, liquor a couple of restaurants -- all we needed within a short walking distance, so no need to rent a car. The beach and small pool were great for lounging. We would recommend staying here. It was a wonderful experience.

The location in Maharepa is right in one of two main tourist areas on the island. Restaurants, bakery, banks and shops are all within easy walking distance. The upstairs is air conditioned and provides a nice feel after a long day outside. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen has a dishwasher, range and microwave. There is even a barbecue grill outside. The two kayaks and stand-up paddleboard were a lot of fun for us and gave more value to this rental. Clement was very helpful, answering all my emails beforehand and transporting our luggage to and from the house from the ferry. (The rental cars are very small and do not hold much luggage) He arranged reef fishing for us from a local family which was a truly authentic Tahitian experience. The view out to the water from inside the house and outside on the deck is truly amazing! The only thing I would mention is that while there is a white sand beach right off the steps of the house, it does not look that way all the way into the water. There are some rocks and coral along with the white sand that extend all the way into the lagoon. You will need water shoes/sandals to go out swimming. The beach at the house is not a picture perfect beach like you see in the brochures, but the greatness of the house makes this a small thing overall. (There are many other places to swim at the perfect white beaches) We were very pleased with the house and the service Clement provided and would easily recommend it to others.

Hors les mauvais renseignements fournis lors de la réservation par le soi-disant chargé d'affaire (Denis de Enjoy villas, pas à niveau), tout a été parfait. Accueil parfait lors de la réception des clés, maison des plus confortable, lagon au pied, kayak à disposition...un vrai régal pour passer un incroyable moment avec les amis bien loin de la folie quotidienne...avec le discret mais efficace soutien de Clément.
Merci, nous reviendrons !!!

This house is stunning! The views and private pool make it truly magical! We were so happy with our choice to rent this house! Clement is an amazing person and he helped us with everything we needed during our stay! He is the best host!!
The location right on the water and walking distance to town was perfect for our group! There were five of us total and the house was definitely large enough for us. We loved having our breakfast at the outdoor dining table with gorgeous views of the sea. We have been dreaming about returning! Moorea is one of the most beautiful places that I've ever been and I would love to visit again soon!
Thank you, Clement! We are very grateful for you!!

The house is directly on the beach, also close to a food store, restaurants and small shops and luxurious MANAUA resort. The owner very friendly and always willing to help.
The house is well equipped, there is a lot of space in the first floor, with perfect terrace and pool outside. Interiour will need a small reconstruction in the future but still perfect rate of the price and value.
We were 7 friends and enjoyed it very much. Tbhank you.

This villa is very well located in Maharepa. It's perfect for a family vacation. Kids and adults very much appreciated the beach in the back yard of the villa and the swimming pool on its terrasse. You can swim, snorkel, use the provided kayaks or just sit there for hours and enjoy the Ocean view. By the way, Clement from Enjoy Villas was very helpful as well.

Our group of six (three couples) had an amazing time staying at the Maharepa Beach Villa! From the service to the house to the location, everything was great!
Clement and Anais were very easy to coordinate with prior to arriving. Clement both picked us up from our arriving flight and drove us back for our departing flight. He gave us a tour of the villa and an overview of the area. We only texted him once (to ask about a ride back to the airport) and he responded quickly. Highly recommend working with Enjoy Villas!
My only regret with this villa is that we didn't stay longer! The size was great for our group of 6 and everything we clean and well-organized. There was plenty of space inside and out to lounge and enjoy the amazing view of the private beach and out into the lagoon. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked breakfasts and dinners a few times during our stay. Each couple was happy with their bedroom. Although one doesn't have air conditioning, it has a fan and is on the lower level so it wasn't too hot at night. We could swim out into the lagoon right from our own backyard and loved checking out the reef in the kayaks provided at the villa. We loved just relaxing in this beautiful home.
We loved how easy it was to walk places from this villa. You could get to a French bakery, a small supermarket, a bank, many restaurants and many shops all within a 5 minute walk. We had a car but we used it sparingly (to get to the Belvedere for a hike and to visit the juice factory) because everything we needed was so close.
Overall, we LOVED our time in this villa. If I ever make it back to beautiful Moorea, I will definitely be staying with Enjoy Villas!

Une fois de plus nous ne sommes pas déçus par les villas gérées par Clément et Anaïs !
Villa très bien située, très spacieuse avec une plage privée et une vue...wahou! Petite piscine très agréable également.
Cuisine bien équipée, literie très confortable, maison très propre, 3 vraies chambres, et un grand espace de vie qui permet de s'isoler si besoin.
Pas besoin de voiture pour faire ses courses et restaurant accessible à pied.
Et Anaïs répond toujours présente pour dépanner ou renseigner...Merci encore à toi!

We stopped here for 5 nights on our way to New Zealand. This beach villa in Maharepa is a super vacation spot on the gorgeous and accessible island of Moorea! Thanks to Clement picking us up at the ferry, a rental car was not needed at all. Albert’s Lagoon Excursions is a short walk away and the very lovable Caraméline bakery is nearly right across the street. Also a modest but full grocery with great food and beverage supplies is just a few more steps away. Best of all, two included kayaks allowed us to explore the shoreline and the abundant coral sea life in the shallow waters off the villa’s beach.

My family loved this villa! It was hard to leave and go anywhere because it was so comfortable and relaxing. The views were amazing and having the kayaks to snorkel with was great! You could snorkel right from the beach but it is also fun to go further out in the kayaks. As the previous reviewers have stated some of the best snorkeling ever right off of the beach.. Loved the refreshing pool and you could actually cook in the well equipped kitchen. Great location with all of our needs in walking distance. We did rent a car for 2 days just so we could tour the whole Island a couple of times. So worth it! Our hosts were wonderful too!
Thank you again Clement, Anais and Edgar for greeting us upon our arrival and all of your immediate responses whenever we had a need or a question. We would definitely stay in this villa again. This was our first visit to Moorea and we hope to be back again soon.
