Welcome to Villa Ohana! Ohana means "family" and the villa carries its name quite well thanks to the family-friendly atmosphere you will find there. Villa Ohana is for travellers seeking peace and tranquility while being at the center of all the action. It offers stunning views of the mountains of Moorea. The beachfront with its sandy shallow waters are very safe for kids to play in. The stunning sunsets on the outside deck will remain in your memories for a long time.
At Villa Ohana you will feel right at home. There are 3 bedrooms (all of them have A/C units), the master bedroom and bedroom 2 have a king size bed and bedroom 3 a queen size. There are 2 separate bathrooms that guests can take advantage of, and we provide basic necessities (shampoo and soap) as well as bedding and towels.
There are 3 areas where you can dine. The dining room, inside, the outside lounge in the covered patio for a cozy lunch, and our personal favorite, is the garden table where breakfasts and lunches can be enjoyed with views of the bay. Our gourmet kitchen is fully equipped so you can cook your own favorite meals. There is also an outdoor barbecue which is a nice place to gather around while the food is cooking.
Villa Ohana is ideally located at the beginning of Cook's bay right after the main village of Maharepa. The advantage of this holiday home relies on the closeness to different key areas of the island. Should you wish to get a pizza or French bread and pastries no need to take your car, it is all right across the street in front of the villa. The main village is only at 2 min drive and offers all convenient grocery stores, banks, restaurants, medical center, retail shops and much more. Its also only a 20min drive from the docks where the ferries arrive and 13min drive from the local airport.
Snorkeling / Diving / Lagoon: the beach is right in front of the villas and opens on the calm lagoon waters. 20 meters away (60 ft), there is a drop off, home of many sea species, which lets you snorkel in full safety among the fishes only a few dozen yards from the Villas. There are no big waves because this place is very protected in the bay, so this is excellent for snorkeling and for children!
Diving: There are many scuba diving centers in Moorea which is famous for its diving spots.
Excursions on the Lagoon: Whether a boat ride to tour the island or an encounter with whales and dolphins, or water skiing at sunset, many leisure providers are at your service.
Surfing: The Opunohu Pass lets you surf on small waves. Watch out, however, for currents. The easiest and safest way is to do it with a provider who will take you to the best spots with his boat.
Horseback Riding: A ranch (only 10 minutes by car) is located in the Opunohu Valley for memorable rides in a spectacular scenery made of peaks and lagoons.
4WD and Quad bike: For those who prefer the comfort of a motor vehicle, a discovery of the hidden paths and breathtaking peaks can be done in a Jeep or in Quad ATV motorcycle.
Hiking: On the mountainside or throughout the tropical jungle, there is nothing like hiking, with or without a guide! Marathons, triathlons, etc. are regularly organized by the Te Moorea Sports Association.
