We stayed at the twin bungalow and it was really nice. The bungalow had been renovated and was in perfect condition. It is pretty spacious for 2 people and absolutely fine for 3, too. You have your own shower and toilet, an Ipad to go online and a fridge, but no kitchen nor cutlery or plates. So if you don't...

This Place was so restful and quiet. We loved the early morning bird calls ..the quiet .. We stayed in a little Bach one bedroom with queen bed bathroom and an extra single bed in another area. The bedding was sooo clean ..basic rooms but enough because you spend all day down on the beach. We booked the cottage that...

We booked Gite Nataiwatch because it was much better priced than other accommodation on IDP. The bungalow had two rooms, each with a bed and a bathroom. The front room also had an iPad and a small fridge. It was very basic but cozy and clean. I definitely recommend bringing food and wine from the mainland. It saved a lot...

Situated in the middle of a forest, just a minute from Kanumera bay, they simply have it all in one place: kind and helpful staff with decent level of English, surprisingly good food (but a bit pricey), rentals, tour desk, iPads in the quite comfy bungalows. All this on a surprisingly (for New Caledonia) good price. I actually considered rescheduling...

This place was cute, wifi was pretty good food hideously priced tho, make sure u go to carefour and bring stuff with you before going to IDP because the shops on the island are crap. This place could have had a better bathroom and there are zero cooking facilities but its cute to dig a hole in the sand on...

I was recommended to go here by the tourist infirmation office in Noumea and it certainly was a good choice. Ile Des Pins is very worthy of a visit with beautiful scenery, stunning pine forests, white sandy beaches, all surrounded by clear emerald water. I arrived by Ferry and a courtesy vehicle picked me up and took me to the...

What I enjoyed the most was probably the human touch of this place! When you are in Isle of Pines, you expect a big touristic business and what I found in this gite was that the human contact made this experience the best! The staff is friendly and helpful, giving you advice on where to go and what to do...

A group of 10 of us booked a spot to camp here for a night. Very flexible - could pick our own spot, and very cheap - especially between 10 of us! Great breakfast included and perfect location on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. We brought only one tent however for 10 of us and there...

On the Isle some months ago, picked the right place. Be wary with the Ferry, it can be cancelled. If arriving by air, pick up from the Gite easy to organise, no other way. Bring as much booze and food as practical. Acquire baguettes locally. Very limited selection in the couple of local "shops". The Gite is basic, but clean....
