My wife and I just spent a week in Bora Bora - perhaps the most strikingly lovely of the French Polynesian Islands. It is also - for tourists at least - an island of two faces. One face - which makes Bora Bora one of the most expensive places to visit - are the over-the-water bungalow resorts that are on...

Gerard was very helpful in getting around and helping us hire bicycles for a day. The place was well equipped with everything we needed and was a perfect base for our stay on the island. We were a quick walk from the Super U and the view from the balcony was great. A few from our group even slept a...

Sunset Hill Lodge provided us with a great base for our 4 days in Bora Bora. Gerard is a wonderful host. He lives about 100 metres up the road and then about 300 metres up the hill. Our accommodation was a ground floor apartment in a two floor building. There were 3 or 4 apartments in total. We had a...

We called Gerard from the ferry at the airport and he was waiting for us upon our arrival to the main island of Bora Bora. He was very helpful in showing us were to rent a scooter and local markets to visit. We found the room very modest but clean and well taken care of. We enjoyed sitting out on...

Gerard offers free pickup from the harbor and he even washed or clothes (one load) for free, I don't think you get this elsewhere in Bora Bora! Its a 15 min walk to the town center, ~ 7min to the nearest supermarket. But all tour operators pick you up in front of the lodge. We did snorkeling with Tohora Bora...

We spent two weeks on Bora Bora and it was one our best vacations ever. The first week was in the upstairs waterfront apartment at the Sunset Hill lodge. We were very happy with the accommodations which were clean, spacious and comfortable. We were happy to be within walking distance of the town, grocery store and bank. We enjoyed beautiful...

We stayed in one of the apartments up the hill for four nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Our host Gérard was extremely helpful, picked us up at the ferry and offered to take us (and pick us up again) to Matira Beach. The apartment is fully furnished with a great kitchen. Great and comfortable terrace with view to...

We stayed in the downstairs waterfront apartment which was very clean and quite large. Gerard was great...he arranged for a scooter rental as well as a fabulous lagoon tour. He picked us up at the ferry and dropped us off when it was time to leave. He also gave us restaurant recommendations. Beautiful sunsets every night from the patio. Great...

The owner is friendly but lives "high in the sky". He told us to pick us up in the morning at 11.30 H to catch our flight. At 10.00 H I was taking a shower and he told us that he was ready to go and that we had to leave the house. We took our suitcases but unfortunately in...

I think that this comment does not apply to our business, never this kind of situation arose at Sunset Hill Lodge ... To find € 80 of food in a refrigerator can not forget ... !!! (Bora Bora is not that expensive and the fridge should be well filled ...)

I was lucky enough to stay in the first floor waterside apartment in July 2016. Gerard was very helpful - picked me up at the tourist bureau (and took me to the ferry when I left) and showed me around. It is very comfortable and fully equipped accommodation, bang on the waterside and close to all facilities - the yacht...
