I am hoping to save you some time in trying to pick an amazing place to stay in Huahine, that's completely affordable and you feel like you own a motu (flat small island).
I stayed at the MOTU LODGE BUNGALOW hosted by Samantha. Getting there is easy from the Tahiti airport via Air Tahiti (the only inter-island airline in French Polynesia) not to be confused with the international airline Air Tahiti Nui.
It's a 40-minute flight to Huahine from Tahiti and once you get there, the host will have someone pick you up and driven to the boat to transfer you to the Motu Murimaora where the bungalow is. And here you are by the water with spectacular views of the lagoon and the mountains across the way that seem to chant to you every evening.
Watch my bitesize video below to get a sneak peek at this airbnb:
I guarantee that you'll have peace and quiet, your own lagoon pool, amazing hosts, kayaks to explore all around, a dreamy Tahitian style bungalow with a super beautiful bathroom. I felt like in a fancy version of Robinson Crusoe and I was invited to dinner 2 nights out of the 5 days that I stayed here. Samantha even offered to give me a circle island tour with a very special stop at a site called Hanaiti. I left there totally dramatically in love with this island and the power it somehow transmits to the Feminine. It is a powerful place and the host of Motu Lodge Bungalow is an absolute queen.
