From the moment I booked the apartment at Gerard’s Villa Moana in Bora Bora, Gerard proved himself to be a great communicator, and that did not change throughout our stay at his lovely place right on the water. When we arrived on Bora Bora from the airport ferry on to the main island, Gerard was there on time to pick us up and take us to his place where we would spend the week. The apartment was clean, spacious and was within walking distance to big grocery stores, restaurants, shops, car rentals and basically everything that Vaitape had to offer. The shower was especially gratifying, great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The queen size bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedroom was spectacular, very quiet and extremely efficient. The wifi was adequate. We stayed in the ground floor unit with a beautiful view of the bay and the sunset, the ambience was amazing from when we woke up early in the morning until we got back from the days adventure and relaxed on the veranda until evening.
Gerard has deep discounts arranged for his guests around town with car rentals, buggy rentals, and the fantastic lagoon tour that no one should leave Bora Bora without doing.
Gerard himself also went out of his way to facilitate our ability to enjoy the island by offering to take us to and from Matira beach the day after we arrived, he also had kayaks available for us to use. He did many little things to enhance our stay such as hanging fresh picked bananas on the veranda and doing a load of laundry for us. Gerard is an awesome airbnb host, he lives close by and he really cares about his guests. He has been a resident of Bora Bora for over 30 years and can give you accurate information about everything on the island. When we were leaving and I was thanking him for a fabulous stay, he told me that most people only come to Bora Bora once in their life and he wants to make sure that he can make it the best experience possible for them, and that is exactly what he did.
