    Excelent place to stay
    We had a group of 8 plus 1 infant and we rented 3 of the overwater bungalows. Bora Bora was absolutely beautiful and staying in this bungalows made it even better. We kayaked in the mornings to watch the sun rises. We were able to swim right out of our patio. Tiare helped to arrange a private chef for us for one night. It was magical. The chef and her assistant were excellent. If you have a chance to use them, don’t hesitate. They gave us a phone so we could communicate on the island and Tiare and Nir helped us with every question and all of our needs. We rented a car from Nir for a lot less than it costs in the rental places. The properties are all absolutely beautiful. I would stay again when I return I wish I could give it 10 stars.

    4/5 Good

    Bora Bora Bungalow
    The location is stunning with post card views all around. We were a party of 4 and it would perfectly for us and the air conditioning was good to come back to each day! We actually only expected it in the bedrooms but it was in the entire unit. The location is only a 10 - 15 min drive to the harbor and you can circle the island in an hour …… if you don't stop to take pictures every 10 feet. The unit does need a bit of TLC - some light blankets in the second bedroom, a few more pillows. In the kitchen dishes and glassware need replacement. IMPORTANT: With the wonderful private nature of this unit there is really no security. We made the mistake of being lax and not locking the sliding doors that face the lagoon at night. During the night while sleeping a thief came in from the lagoon and took a bag from the main room that had a passport and cash. Police advised that this happens. This unit does have a camera facing the back dock - however it's a "dummy" and does not work. The good news is the bag was thrown in the lagoon (minus cash) and it floated to shore with a soggy passport floating next to it……. Oh well, live and learn we will be much more careful in the future.

    Great location for family
    My family of four stayed for a week in Brando's Over Water Bungalow. The property is exactly as described. It is well suited for a family with 2 bedrooms, nice bathroom with double vanities and an amazing shower, well equipped kitchen, and spacious living room. The availability of a grill and outdoor dining area allowed us to cook many delicious meals while enjoying the sunset. We also enjoyed watching the outrigger canoes passing by. There is easy access to the water from a ladder on the dock so we enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking in front of the bungalow. My teenagers appreciated access to high-speed Wifi and watching Netflix on the large TV after sunset. The bungalow is in a convenient location- close to shopping and to Matira Beach. Our favorite activity was the lagoon tour and we were even picked up at the bungalow! The lagoon tour is definitely a must-do activity. Snorkeling with the black tip reef sharks and the beautiful fish at Coral Gardens is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We decided to rent a car from Nir which was useful for trips to the market and circling the island. I can't compliment Richard and Nir enough for making our vacation amazing! They were the perfect hosts- helpful and responsive. They provided a clean, well-equipped, attractively decorated home away from home. I would definitely recommend the bungalow to others and would stay there again if we're ever lucky enough to return to Bora Bora.

    The paradise!!!!!
