What a hidden gem. Great little hideaway! Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, quiet and efficient air conditioning in bedroom, useable wi-fi. Emeline gave us the tour. Cottage is very homey, complete with mosquito net over bed. Property was sprayed for mosquitoes right after rain. Came equipped with bikes, kayaks, snorkel gear and water shoes. Good snorkeling right from the property. Saw 2 stingrays the first day!!!
Conveniently located. Out gate to left onto road a10 minutes walk is a market with fresh French bread, wine, beer and liquor, fresh fish, etc. At a food truck there in the evening, we ate a great mahi mahi dinner, with so much fish we had it for dinner again the next nite. Out gate to right a 15 minute walk is Manava Resort, where there is a free Polynesian show on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Another 5-8 minute walk is the town of Maharepa. A nice pearl shop, Pearl Romance, is located there.
We spent several days at Poerani and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you like secret hideaways and are game for preparing some of your own meals, this is the place for you. For us, it was PERFECT!!
