Vacation rental has been a very popular holiday option for years in Europe and is now a growing trend across the world. Also called villa holidays, house rental to tourists is not new in French Polynesia. For a number of years now, a few local home owners have been renting out furnished houses and villas on a temporary basis to visiting guests.
Types of stay include villas, apartments, chalets or condominiums and prove to be comfortable alternatives for singles on business trip, families and even small groups. With such diversity, vacation rentals can range from budget studio apartments to exclusive beach front villas fully staffed and equipped with boat, car and more. Depending on the number of rooms and bedding options, vacation rental is often favored by families with kids or friends travelling together making it a cost effective but also private way to enjoy your island experience.
Home rentals in Tahiti can be arranged directly with the owners, generally through specialized online listing services displaying properties’ information and photos. Home owners will generally have different payment and cancellation policies or key pick-up procedures requiring a thorough research to find the right stay.
You can also book your stay with a vacation rental agency that will usually handle everything from reservation, billing, greeting, housekeeping and various concierge options with no direct contact with the home owner. Booking through an vacation rental agency remains a convenient option for guests that do not want to go through a lengthy search, make arrangements on their own or simply unsure that they will get the property they have seen on the website. Via a website, agencies would often offer a large selection of properties at different price range that may be associated with other services upon request. Agencies versus individual’s owners guarantee to the travelers services, assistance and expertise on the destination.
