“Beautiful home”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016
people found this review helpful

We we're lucky enough to be one of the first renters of this newly remodeled bungalow. What a fabulous home. You can tell that the owners thought of every detail when creating what is probably one of the most modern and comfortable homes on the island. The house has beautiful wood detailing, modern cabinetry, a fully modern and well appointed kitchen, fine tile, recessed lighting everywhere. The south and west sides of the house are essentially solid glass, providing wonderful views of the lagoon and a nice, bright atmosphere. It was great waking up in the morning and watching the lagoon light up from the morning sun while laying in a comfy bed. (Did I mention the Egyptian cotton sheets and piles of pillows? )  When it gets dark and it is time to wind down you can enjoy a movie on one of the three HD TV's. A few snorkel sets are available, and there are blow-up floats for relaxing off the end of the dock. (Our kids thought the giant flamingo was very cool.)  I could go on and on, but you get the point. This is a nice place.

When we arrived we were greeted by Juliette at the ferry dock. The owners hired Juliette and Peggy to act as their local representatives. Juliette led us to the house, showed us around, and gave us lots of information about the house and the island. We also appreciated all the fresh flowers that she put in every room.  Later, when we had a question about the house we called Peggy and promptly got an answer. They were both very friendly and helpful.

As much as we loved the house, it isn't perfect. We found that were often heading to Matira for the beach or the restaurants. That means driving to the opposite end of the island. That didn't bother us, but some people may prefer to step outside their door and already be there. The northern end of the island really doesn't have much to offer, and, except for the cluster of bungalows, it is, shall I say, a less desirable neighborhood. We would take walks in the morning, and although the water is nice, it is disappointing to see trash along the sides of the road.  On the other hand, if you want to book an excursion, like a lagoon snorkeling tour, they will pick you up on the dock in front of the house. Very convenient. If you want fresh bread in the morning, a fresh pastry, piece of chicken, or maybe you forgot to buy some ketchup, the "chicken man" drives by almost every morning in their corner store on wheels, so you can pick up a lot of staples from the end of the driveway.

The trade-off that you have to consider for this property is it is a beautiful home that is not in an ideal location. If you are content to hang out and enjoy the peace and serenity on the quiet side of the island in understated luxury then this place is for you. If you want to be in the middle of the action and have everything outside your door then you may want to look at the south side of the island.

As the first guests of Maeva Hoa and repeat vacation renters, we were ecstatic to find such a beautifully designed and appointed vacation rental on Bora Bora. Communication with Pat was excellent and his thoughtfulness in every regard of his beautiful bungalow was evident throughout our stay. The location, the amenities, and most of all the quality of this vacation rental are all outstanding. The description and photos of are spot on.

Thank you Pat! We really enjoyed Maeva Hoa and would love to return to your beautiful home. I will be sure to recommend to friends and family.

Thank you for being wonderful first guests at Maeva Hoa! We thought of everything and then some when we furnished and stocked our bungalow. It's very rewarding to hear from frequent vacation home renters that our hard work paid off and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay! You are welcome back to our little slice of Bora Bora anytime!
Thanks Again!
