“Private quiet Hillside Paradise with amazing Sunsets from inside” We had a wonderful stay at Villa Vahimanui!!!
The Villa was very well equipped and we were totally comfortable during our stay. The Internet worked perfectly & it was nice to have the Dvds, Music & books available for our relaxation when we were not out and about.
Pierre's advance explanation was extremely helpful for us to be prepared in so many ways! We enjoyed shopping with the locals at the market and exploring the island with the freedom of having the car transportation. Which made our visit to Bora Bora much more in depth than we could have ever have had staying on a Motu Resort. Many of the visiting couples we talked to felt very isolated and definitely were missing so many of our experience's. The view from the Villa is truly breathtaking! We got used to the many stairs pretty quickly and my husband is amazing at parking so he had no problem parking in the car park. His years driving and parking in San Francisco was good training! Nathalie took excellent care in preparing the "spotless" Villa for our arrival and picking us up exactly on time. Once we arrived at the Villa Nathalie took us directly up to show us around and gave us personal instruction on use of the villa. She offered to assist us if we needed anything to make our visit more enjoyable right through to our on time departure back to the Ferry dock where we waved farewell! We noticed during our travels around the island that the locals tend to be a bit relaxed in their work ethic but you are lucky to have found a gem having Nathalie & Barthemey as your caretaker's & guest liaison's!!!
Certainly a fantastic destination in "Paradise". Perfect location for our 28th anniversary, It was a very "Special & Memorable" stay on Bora Bora!
Ps- We too were concerned about wiring the rental payment overseas to a foreign country as you are warned not to do! But as with everything else stated in these reviews & in several advance emails to & from Pierre in preparation for our trip we had no problem's!!
“Fabulous stay!” From the moment we first arrived on the island, we instantly fell in love with Bora Bora! Bora Bora immediately captured our hearts! Nathalie and Barthelemy, the caretakers of Villa Fetia Iti, were great at meeting us at the dock and giving us a brief tour of the island and all the local hot spots. They are very nice and helpful.When we arrived at Villa Fetia Iti, we instantly fell in love all over again! This beautiful home was exactly as pictured on the website. We had our own private deck with breathtaking views of the lagoon, ocean, tropical trees and amazing sunsets! The villa is located in the nicest part of the island. It was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. It was laid out nicely with more than enough space for the two of us. The owner Pierre was phenomenal to deal with. Quick responses to all emails...even encouraged contacting him while he was on vacation!! Very informative and even a phone call to us during our stay to make sure everything was fine. Pierre shared plenty of the island secrets with us by email. There is also a nice binder at the house, complete with recommendations for everything regarding the house and the island in order to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible. You will need a car but you are only a few minutes from the restaurants and activities. Renting Pierre’s car was a must for navigating the island. Enjoy the lagoon and the « motus » (islets)! We will definitely return to Bora Bora. My husband said to pencil us in for next year! Thanks for everything!
