This unique and exclusive holiday rental is composed of multiple bungalows dispatched around the island to guarantee maximum privacy to the guests.

It features:

  • 4 sleeping bungalows: 3 with king or double beds and 1 including 3 single beds which can be arranged into one king size bed and an extra single bed.

The whole island is powered by solar panels. While the simple accommodation are most comfortable, there are no fans nor air conditioning available. Reconnect with mother nature and enjoy the marine breeze and the sound of waves on the reef away.

Renting an exclusive island for vacation means enjoying the water activities at their best! The island proposes snorkeling gears for free.

We also recommend to make arrangement with our own concierge service to book at extra charge a true waterman experience including but not limited to activities such as: paddle-board, Polynesian canoe (known as "vaa'a" in Tahitian), surf, kayak, fishing and diving.

A motor boat and its captain are at your own disposal during your entire stay. It is included in the rental rate. You will then be able to reach the main island at any time for shopping, mainland tours or even to access your emails and internet with the free WIFI at your disposal at the base of the Tahiti Private Island.

Nowadays connectivity is very important and especially on an isolated island that is why a GO-phone is also provided with the villa rental including limited credits.

While your stay with us we highly recommend you to experience at least one day at the Atimaono Golf Course located at only a short drive from the marina. This is the only 18-hole golf course on Tahiti Island.

If you surf, you must go to see the world famous surf spot Teahupoo where the world best surf champions enjoy the mythical reef break! This wave welcomes all the best surfers in the world. By chance you might see there big names such as Kelly Slater, Laird HamiltonMick Fanning and other locals such as famous Raimana Van Bastolaer, Michel Bourez!

Tahiti peninsula which is next door has lots to offer in term of land and water activities (hiking, lagoon tours). View on the mountains and panorama are spectacular!

Finally we would like to share with you a little bit of history. Indeed the Tahiti Private Island belongs to the grandchildren of the famed American novelist, James Norman Hall, co-author of the world renowned novel, Mutiny of the Bounty. There is a museum not to be missed on the north coast of Tahiti, dedicated to his life and story. The museum is actually the author’s home, where he lived for over 30 years and wrote his novels.

Museum website

The Private Island was promised to the Author’s Tahitian born son, Conrad L. Hall, at age 3. Conrad was famous in his own right, becoming one of the most important cinematographers in American Cinema, earning 3 Oscars for the films, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, American Beauty, and Road to Perdition. When Conrad wasn't filming a movie he was living on his private island and bringing the dream to life. Now his children have followed in his footsteps, working in Cinema Television, caring for their little piece of paradise and now for the first time, they are offering it to other families and friends to enjoy as they have done for a lifetime.
