This is definitely THE WAY to visit Bora Bora. Way more affordable than resorts, amazing good care from Gerard (he's available most of the time for whatever you might need!) and the place is simple yet fully equipped for what might be needed for a short stay. At the moment we stayed there, the whole house seemed either new or incredibly well maintained and everything worked out just as smooth as we could ask.
The backyard facing directly to the water is just amazing.
Vaitape is a tiny city, but this place is at the same time quiet and close to anything that we could need from the city (10 minutes far walking from city center).
Only little nit: WiFi signal is a bit weak in the backyard so it's hard to enjoy some connectivity and the delightful views at the same time :) A signal repeater would fix that, though.
Thanks so much, Gerard!! We're definitely back!
