For Services and Resources in French Polynesia

The Tahiti Cruisers Guide is brought to you by Julien Desmont from Xperimental and Chuck Houlihan from Jacaranda. Starting as an idea based on the very successful Panama City Cruisers guide, it has evolved into 200+ pages of information on vendors and services throughout French Polynesia. In January 2018, we added GPS coordinates and links to Google Maps to assist in locating businesses.

Downloading the guide and GPS map coordinates will facilitate using the guide offline. The coordinates will work for either (best for Papeete) or Google Maps.

Especially thankful to John (SV Mary Ann II) and Steve (SV Ocean Star) for their huge effort in supplying a vast amount of information for the guide.

The guide is a community effort. Updates and new additions are greatly appreciated. If you find the guide useful or find something that needs updating please drop us a note at tahiticruisersguide (AT)

Island: Tahiti

From Ocean Star 6-18

The air bnb place we stayed at during our haul out. It was less then a 20 min walk door to boat, but Regis (owner) gave Steve a ride every AM at 7.   Also picked us up with our bags 1st night & brought us both to boat with our bags last day.

There really isn't a "name" for the place.  
I went to the Airbnb website, download the app and searched for Papeete, Tahiti. 

It came up as petite studio apartment home under Papeete - Taunoa (name of area) with Regis being the host. $66 a night including breakfast.   

4 friendly big dogs on property. A rooster next door provides the alarm clock. A takeout pizza place on corner, another Chinese place on corner & a Chinese takeout or sit down restaurant between yard & home. Easy Market a short walk the other way.
