    la maison etait sale!
    We booked 2 nights. Upon arrival the house was in a dirty state. it was just digusting. The floor were sticky and dirty. The kitchen was in terrible state. The shower was blocked by hairs.. Furthemore It is not right to promote a breakfast when on 1st day there was just 3 eggs for 2 and some Bread . No jam no butter nothing... On 2nd day same 3 eggs arrived when we were leaving.... no juice no cornflakes as advertied on their pictures FELIX the person in charge is a good person but the owner should pay for a cleaning lady. And for a gardener. The state of the garden was appaling. the lawn had not been cut for weeks. It is all very good to rent ooms but maintenance is a priority.

    A small guesthouse
    Close to the center of Papeete. You checked in ”digitalky”. No real life staff available, normally. The very few rooms are basic. The room was glesbygd, but not the terrace next to it.
