We stayed at Villa Moana for 9 nights in total - and it was amazing!
Beautifully layed out and such a haven. There were 6 of us in total which comprised of 4 adults and two kids (16 and 11), and our friends stayed in the Master (which is absolutely amazing) and we stayed upstairs. My son (16) stayed in the back room, and daughter (11) stayed on the couch outside the bathroom as she didn't want to sleep with her brother! There was plenty of room for everyone which was great and the kitchen was well kitted out and situated in the house. The pool table out back was great and a couple of evenings were spent out there versing each other over a few cocktails. Most of the time was spent out on the deck of Villa Moana drinking cocktails and Hinano beers whilst watching to see if we could see sharks.
The kayak was great although the current is pretty strong, and although this beach is not great for snorkelling or swimming, we were fine with this as we really only wanted somewhere to relax in the evenings as we went out every day.
There is a real necessity to arrange a car whilst staying here though as the nearest dairy (Magasin) is a 15 minute walk which is OK if it's not too hot. We soon realised this and had Alberts Car Rental deliver us a car which was great although it would have been a better idea to have picked it up when we got off the ferry. We brought out own meat with us as some essentials (cereals/rice/pasta/herbs/alcohol) and made great use of the BBQ that was there, and we also made a number of trips to the little Magasins around the island as well as to the big supermarket near the ferry.
Things place is heavenly and I wouldn't have any worries about recommending it as we had such a great stay here! No air con but we didn't end up needing it which was fine, and there were Mosquito Coils provided so none of us really got eaten at all - may have just been the season we were there.
