Nice cabin-style rental
Denis and Alix were very helpful, and lovely hosts. The location was beautiful, with a very picturesque beach right on the water. The house itself was more cabin-like than I expected. From the photos the property looks very secluded and high-end. I didn't however find it was either of those things. The property is right off the main road (as are many homes in Moorea, to be fair), and Alix lives right next door. She was very respectful of giving us privacy however, so we never felt like this is an intrusion. She also has two friendly dogs, that we were happy to have hanging around - they were well trained not to come inside the house, and Alix cleaned up after them as needed, but if anyone has allergies or doesn't enjoy canine company, know they are very present. The living space was not very comfortable to lounge in - the "couch" is really a bench with a cushion, and the house is otherwise more cottagey than high-end. Appreciating that all things in French Polynesia are costly, I nonetheless thought the rental was more expensive than what I expected to get when we booked. In any event, we enjoyed our stay. A car rental was a must to fully appreciate all the island has to offer.
Thank you for your review. Indeed in French Polynesia, traditional houses are in tropical wood, very airy with double glazed windows all around, so don't expect any concrete house with fancy equipment like you get in Hawaii for instance. People live and laze outside on the large decks by the lagoon rather than in the lounge, hence why what you call a couch is not one indeed, it is just a typical Balinese wood bench. The real couch is outside on the covered deck, by the loungers, I hope you enjoyed it too. As you rightly mentioned the small road is circling Moorea and therefore most grounds by the water aren't more than 25 meters wide, but very few enjoy beaches like we do. Some places by Temae in Moorea for instance are also facing the ocean (and not the calm protected lagoon) and that makes a huge difference, especially when you consider the noise of the waves you get, rather than the gentle lagoon lapping your feet. We hope to greet you again in our beach property in the near future and wish you the best.
Kind regards, the management.
Spent a week at the Villa. The view and location is very nice the manager is very helpful. I rented a car from the owner a must and reasonable price. The house is well furnished and kitchen well supplied for cooking. Only a/c in bedrooms so can get warm inside but good for sleeping. The snorkeling right off the beach was great a lot of reef fish and coral. Overhaul the property is great and private with a fantastic view to enjoy and good outdoor seating.
Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed our property in Robinson's Cove Moorea and the service from our Concierge living on site. Being by the lagoon is a very special treat indeed, it feels at times just like being in front of a lake, with the majestuous mountains of Opunohu bay surrounding you. Hope you will return and enjoy all this again! Kind regards, Denis.
First let me say the location and views from the Villa are spectacular.There were a couple of items I think would improve the overall stay there. The furniture is adequate in the living area but could be more comfortable. The mini split AC is only located in the downstairs master bedroom which made the rest of the house very uncomfortable as there was a lack of breeze to flow through the house. It would be most beneficial if a ceiling fan was placed in the living room downstairs and another AC mini split for the upstairs sleeping area as it was extremely hot and humid upstairs for sleeping conditions.
The kitchen well supplied. The bathroom and shower areas were wonderful and it was convenient to have a washer and dryer in the unit.
Wonderful private beach and many toys to keep everyone entertained. The property manager, Alex, is extremely friendly and helpful. A wonderful addition to the property.
Denis, the owner was extremely easy to work with and very cooperative. He called me immediately whenever I had a question regarding the property prior to our arrival.

Villa Cook was everything we were promised. Sitting on the water's edge it was a peaceful haven.
Lots of light and tasteful furnishing. The 2 bedrooms had well working air conditioners, although rarely needed since it cooled down to the mid seventies during the night.
Well equipped kitchen with starter supplies of coffee, sugar, spices, etc. Even a bottle of lovely sparkling wine awaited us upon arrival.
Alix was very helpful whenever we had a question.
Snorkeling right in front of the house was wonderful!
I hope we can return one day..
Thank you for your nice review, glad everything went well. Villa Cook is our best Deluxe beach Villa in Robinson's Cove, but we also propose several other beach Villas through Moorea and Bora Bora. Hope you will return :)
An amazing holiday retreat!
Just returned from our Tahiti trip where we spent our first week in the Villa Cook.
I was very impressed with the accommodations and all the extra curricular opportunities right at the property. All kinds of things were provided, kayak, life jackets, snorkel gear (although we had our own) and the fishing tackle was even put to use. Just a stick, fishing line and a hook were all that was needed for my friend's 10 year old to catch (and release) fish just feet from the deck steps.
Alix and her kids were a delight. The four legged kids hung out with us all week and we all enjoyed their antics..
Thank you for sharing this paradise with us Denis, our trip was all that we hoped it would be and I hope to be back someday. Best New Year's ever!

Thank you for your review :). It looks you enjoyed this beach Villa as if it was your own beach Home... and this is our best reward! Good idea also to have rented the additional bungalow for the 3rd couple. You are welcome back anytime! Kind regards. Denis, owner, & Alix concierge on site.
Postcard perfect setting
My husband & I recently returned from a stay at Robinson’s Cover (Villa Wallis). This was a BIG trip for us and we did endless research trying to pick the best place and I can say that Villa Wallis was exactly what we had hoped! The location and view (in every direction) is like stepping into a post card! The Villa was exactly as advertised and I must admit, that if anything, the pictures do not truly do justice to the place. The lanai is amazing. The view from the bedroom is stunning. The beach is excellent for sunning. The snorkeling is great with shallows and a reef wall just off shore. While there we saw a pod of 10 dolphins. The location is ideal and with a car most everything is 5 – 20 minutes away. We took advantage of the boat rental and had a wonderful day touring around the bay and lagoon. Denis (The Owner) was extremely helpful and quick to offer suggestions on activities in Moorea or elsewhere in French Polynesia. Alix (The onsite Manager), as I had read in earlier reviews, was wonderful and was quick to offer any assistance and routinely asked if we needed anything. Pepsi (The Dog) was the icing on the cake and always a welcome, discreet, and well behaved visitor. We will dream of a return visit until that dream is attained!
Thank you so much for your review :) It is indeed true our premises location is rather astonishing, and staying in Villa Wallis certainly adds the final touch: this all wooden construction is designed around a half-moon shape lanai, semi-covered for shade and sun, with a few steps leading to the private beach and lagoon. Quite a hard work to import it from Bali and reconstruct it in our grounds in Moorea (a long story short!) but calling it a postcard-like setting is defintiely our best reward!! THANK YOU. Denis and Alix... and Pepsi of course :)
