The only vacation rental in the beautiful surfing village of Teahupoo, this three bedroom two bathroom house is ideally located a five-minute walk from the shore break and a two-minute walk to a crystal clear river pool. Surfers can be in the lineup in less than a half an hour by a jog to the point and a quick paddle out. This quiet community is unique in Tahiti both for its laid back surfing atmosphere and for its uncommonly welcoming and traditional Polynesian ambiance.
The artistic wooden house is 1,250 square feet plus a huge 270 square foot deck so you can practically live outdoors. The house is an octagon with an open-air area at its center - a mangosteen tree grows out of the middle and the area brings in lots of light as well as views of the mountains, and at night, the moon.
All the main rooms have teak floors while the bathrooms and kitchen are tiled. The custom made windows and kitchen cabinetry are made from hardwoods and the house is furnished with Bali style teak furniture. The home is designed to catch tropical breezes so it's often noticeably cooler than outside even without air-conditioning.
Over 18 types of fruit grow in the 3/4 acre garden including the usual suspects like mango, papaya, pineapple, passion fruit, banana and lime but also rare species to Polynesia such as giant South American pink pomelos, cinnamon and cocoa.
Hiking trails, kayaking, snorkeling, surfing and swimming are literally right outside the door. One third of a mile from the main road, the house is quiet, far from any traffic and is perfect for children and active families.

Wonderful Island Paradise Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 1 days in April, 2012 I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home in Teaupoo. The family that tended to the home and grounds were very welcoming. They would even leave fresh cut up fruit from the grounds on the table for us. The vast front porch was perfect for eating outside and there was always a slight breeze going which made it so comfortable. The open floor plan provided easy cooking while socializing. I can't say enough about the live tree growing thru the roof...just amazing! Thanks again for sharing your paradise island with me.
