    Our water comes essentially from rains falling from roofs well storaged in burried containers.
    This water, even if it is very clean, can not be considered as drinking.
    For its use, the population goes to the springs to get drinking water ( the nearest spring is at 300 m from the residence.

    There are books on the island of Maupiti but they are not in English draduits.

    A few books written in french as « Maupiti » of Claude ENER (CHARNAY René) 1969, Arthaud.
    Re-issued book in 1995 of the very beautiful series ' Notebooks of Oceania ' to the publishers of the Pacific.
    he author, administrator of colonies gives a description of life on MAUPITI - tiny island of less 20 kilometer square in the middle of ocean - in the 50's, sure this narration must be read.

    « My island Maupiti » of André Ropiteau, famous Bourgogne wine negotiater (trade of a tradition which continues), was born in 1904 in Meursault and discovered Tahiti and Maupiti during his worldwide tour. He married Tauaroa, had on hand at once his trade and his presence in Maupiti. He built a house in Maupiti; a house that he described in his book ' My island Maupiti ' as : « a lonely coconut tree will swing its palms on the top of my roof; the view will spread on the reef, the motu of the pass and the very close mountain .» Jacques Boullaire illustrated these texts. André Ropiteau took a lot of photographies, that helps us to get the daily life knowing better at that time.

    At the publisher of the Motu, in the form of a small box holding 3 books : Immemorials, Marriage of Loti and my island Maupiti, cloth binding, leather back, 1993.

    You will be on the central island, mosquito density is low, unlike the motus (small islands) there must be good personal protection, similarly in case of heavy rain there is a general increase in mosquitoes. The houses Beach and Villa have screens on windows and if necessary the terrace can be protected by mosquito coils placed at your disposal.The use of Monoi oil with lemongrass is a repellent also recommended for its mechanical effect: the mosquito skids ... In paradise, mosquitoes are reminiscent sometimes you that you are not dreaming.

    The cockerels live freely on the Polynesian islands. But you could believe some of them sound to be from the metropolis to be singing within time lag...At Tahiti, I have even seen an hotel which was providing ear plugs.
    Each cockerel marks then its territory, as soon as it is not hearing its neighbour it takes its place.

    Yet, you have to be aware that, if we have not any more cockerel, our population of centipede (scolopendra are on the whole islands and islets of Polynesia, as much as the cockerels) will increase, even if in Maupiti Résidence our houses built on high piles place you far away of a very painful encounter, cockerels are handy to the island. Advices to people who would be lodged in a proximity ground level house during their journey similar to the polynesian accomodation : shake your clothes and shoes every morning.

    In conclusion, yet I understand you because a paradise is not perfect.

    We do not do camping, you have a camping site on the central island, Maupiti Camping contact email tel: +689 87 26 66 60

Since that time, Giau is in a free way in charge of 2 dispensaries and wishes to rebuild the one in his village Xa Hoa My.

    Maupiti Residence carries on investing more in for your comfort :1 large bed 160x200 and 2 beds 90x200 of hostelery quality, a new arrangement of the bathroom and the kitchen fittings. An extra of 2 000 XPF (16,76 €) VAT included per fare and per night is on top of the the standard category. Only one beach house is available at an upper class category. If it was not vacant, a standard category still stands comfortable and is appreciated by its charming bamboo furnishings.The beds are smaller: 1 bed 140 X190 and 2 beds 90X190.
    Air-conditioning is not included in price, it is an option on top.

    In Polynesia, the cyclonic risk goes from November to April. French Polynesia is among the regions of the world least affected by cyclones, there are much worse elsewhere, but that does not mean that it is spared. Maupiti was in the eye of cyclone Osea in 1997.
    Our houses and villas are the anticyclonic standards, built on the central island they are protected from the effect of the cyclonic swell by a large motu (small islands), the tourists accommodated on the motu are usually evacuated in the “house of prayer”… no because their last hour has come but because this large house, which is also used to welcome religious associations, is equipped with a kitchen, toilets and sleeping arrangements. The order is to stay inside the houses.

    There is no car rental agency in Maupiti.
    The island of Maupiti is very small (about 9 Kms), bicycles are available free of charge at the beach fare and at the villa des mangoiers, a store delivers the beach fare at home, delivery package: 300 XPF (2.51 €), minimum order 2000 XPF (16.76 €) and when Alain travels to the village you can do your shopping.

    Our 4X4 Suzuki jimmy car is not for rent, it is part of an optional package of the Villa of mango trees accessible by a mountain path, 140 meters (nice panorama but it remains sporty on foot). Access to the beach by a shaded staircase, tropical vegetation, 65 meters (118 steps). If you do not take the 4X4 car package, a transport service to go to the store is specially set up at your request for the Villa of mango trees.

    Best price / quality rate: our success means that we do not have to resort to agencies (impose a price alignment including the 10 to 20% + commission), distance selling without charge on the bank card, air conditioning consumption at cost price to be paid on site, management cost limited by a full payment all inclusive before your arrival, cancellation policy.

    It is very difficult to recommend accommodation but to offer you some simple criteria for making your choice:
    1-The choice is made between the central island (offers more freedom and activities)
    and the motu (experience of a small world closed on a small island, for a short stay the isolation will be bearable and full of charm).
    2-Between homestay immersion (experience of Polynesian family life, warm welcome, but also sharing the bathroom more often)
    and a bungalow (more privacy).
    3-The photos offered by the site are sometimes misleading: to differentiate between those who offer beautiful landscapes but little image of proximity to their accommodation (exterior / interior) is suspect
    and those who show their immediate environment, the best is to go to Google Maps (Proximity to the beach? views? hikes? sites?).
