As home-sharing becomes increasingly popular for travellers worldwide, Tahiti Tourisme has highlighted the destination's rental home offering as an alternative way for Australian holidaymakers to enjoy a homely stay on the islands.
Ranging from resort studio units for two to beachfront holiday homes and 12-bedroom luxury villas, rental homes are available across the Society Islands including Moorea and Tahiti, as well as the Tuamotus.
Tahiti Tourisme Director Australia Robert Thompson said rental homes offered a great value option for groups or couples wanting to enjoy the Islands of Tahiti in their own comfort and space.
"While Tahiti is best known for its overwater bungalows and luxury resorts, there is a whole other side to the destination for those who want more flexible arrangements, especially families, friends and groups who are holidaying together," Mr Thompson said.
"Whether guests want a rustic beach house where the lagoon is never more than a few paces away, or a high level of service with a fully-staffed property, there is a rental home to suit. Most properties have a private pool and a semi-private beach as well as great cooking facilities, while rental cars and activities can be arranged through a remote concierge service."
A one-bedroom apartment in the Tahiti Pearl Beach Resort starts from as little as $779* per week including access to all the hotel's facilities. Meanwhile the three-bedroom Te Tavake villa on Tahiti's west coast is priced from $3694* per week and the five-bedroom beach front Villa Manou in Moorea starts from $6483* per week.
