  • Description


    We are a family of 3. Me, Cinthia, I am polynesian from Rangiroa, my husband Andrea is from Italy. Our daughter Moana is born in Tahiti. We own a small 3 unit Bed and Breakfast on the atoll of Rangiroa, world-known for the amazing dives. We love to travel and to meet people. Moana is just almost 5 but her passport has already many stamps :D
    We like to cook, play music and dance ori Tahiti. We live right next to Tiputa pass and every evening you can walk to the pass (less than 5 minutes) and watch the dolphins jump in the waves.
    Moana is turning 5 in October and she is a really clever kid. She is already bilingual (French-Italian) and she is spontaneously learning English thanks to her favorites movies in the original language. She is very active and demanding of new challenges.
    while traveling we all felt in love with Japan and we would like a Japanese "au pair" so that Moana can learn some Japanese and maybe us too :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Rangiroa is small, but you can learn much. You can learn about Polynesian culture, language, food, fishing and the way of life. Music and dance is a huge part of Polynesian life, there is a really good, international English speaking dance school, where you can learn Tahitian Dance and HULA. You can also learn to play ukulele and Toere (Traditional Polynesian drumming). You can of course learn or improve speaking french, as it is the main language of French Polynesia. Finally, Rangiroa is considered one of the best diving places in the world, so you can spend time diving and getting diving levels done.
