Waterfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
PLEASE NOTE OUR CANCELLATION POLICY. THERE IS $1,000.00 DUE UPON BOOKING WHICH IS NON-REFUNDABLE. THE LAST PAYMENT IS DUE TWO MONTHS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL AND IS ALSO NON-REFUNDABLE. HOWEVER, IF I CAN FIND ANOTHER CLIENT TO TAKE ALL OR SOME OF THAT RESERVED SPACE, I WILL REFUND ALL OR PART OF THE SECOND PAYMENT... WE HAVE THE ONLY THREE OVER WATER BUNGALOWS WITH FULL AIR CONDITIONING, new appliances and KAYAKS! Extra housekeeping available. COMPARE OUR RATES TO THE RESORTS... The owners of the Black Pearl Over Water Bungalow are proud to present Marlon Brando's own over water bungalow in Bora Bora. Along with his second Bungalow, Marlon's Over Water Hideaway... A gorgeous covered terrace, overlooking the lagoon and palm covered islands, just a few hundred yards away, is fully furnished with quality outdoor furniture and gas barbecue. Here you can enjoy many wonderful hours, reading a good book, marveling at the beauty of the area, or just doing nothing. If you wish to take a dip in the warm waters, nothing could be simpler. Just go down to your private dock and dive in. Right there you can snorkel for hours, check out the thousands of colorful fish in and around the coral reef, or just lie on the beach under a palm tree, while sipping a Tahitian punch. We can help set up tours for you: Authentic Tahitian Motu picnics, Polynesian weddings, Jet skis, shark and manta ray feed, sunset sailing, scuba diving, island jeep and snorkeling tours, even a tattoo with a Tahitian master!

Additional Information: As the owners of the very popular Black Pearl Over Water Bungalow in Bora Bora, we can't tell you how excited we are to offer, for the first time, Marlon Brando's historic over water bungalow for vacation rentals. We remodeled the bungalow to meet the needs of our sophisticated travelers and it is beautiful. Marlon Brando owned two bungalows, one for him and one for his friends. We have purchased both. Both Brando's Bora Bora Bungalow and Marlon's over water hideaway are the perfect location for snorkeling, walking hiking and swimming. Paradise surrounds you.
If you need help with rental cars, international or domestic flights, we can help with that too. We have many returnees and we are confident that this will be your vacation of a lifetime! Our rates are very affordable, especially if you've checked out the prices of some of the 4 and 5 star hotels on the island. Our home is a true travel bargain.
Please reserve early as high season books up fast.

Car Rental: You will need a car. Other options are carts, bikes, taxi and water taxi (Not always available).
Please note: Contact our manager directly for Car Rentals. Nir's rates for his 'Client cars' are far below the rental car places on the island.

Excellent Stay in the Bungalow
As everything on this island, the property and its location are beautiful. It’s very quiet here because it’s away from the main tourist parts. The bungalow is very spacious. You can swim right from the balcony… it’s wonderful. Lots of fish to see right there; under water or just standing on the balcony. During the island’s winter months (we were here in September), you can expect a steady wind of 15-20mph day and night. But you get used to it and it doesn’t really interfere with any activities. It’s just part of life here. Depending on the part of the island, you may even have a pretty protected beach with less wind. I would come to this island and this Bungalow again, no doubt. I would recommend this to anyone. Oh! Our manager Nir provided the best check in experience. He’s so nice and you can reach him any day with the local cell phone he provides you during your stay. He will book guided tours for you and give you recommendations about where to go for food.

We liked the view from the bungalow and the snorkeling in front of the bungalow. Check in with Nir was great! Beds were not comfortable, especially in the master. Furnitures are outdated.

This is a must stay in Bora Bora
If you want an affordable over the water bungalow in Bora Bora, THIS is the place to stay! You will enjoy the accomodations of the home and the fantastic view of sea life right from your deck. Be sure to rent the car from Nir as you will need it to get to the store, bank, and around the island. We brought fishing poles for "catch and release" fishing and floaties to float on the water. We also brought our own snorkeling gear as there is much to see from the dock. If you need anything or want to book an excursion, ask Nir first. It was fantastic to be picked up from our dock for water excursions or out on the road for our land excursions. Our family of four had a fabulous time and it was very hard to leave to go back to the fast paced life in California!

Gorgeous location
The overwater bungalow was an exciting experience and hassle free. The property manager was excellent and helpful. We rented a car from the owner and were glad we did. The lagoonarium snorkel trip was wonderful.

Excellent property
Overall, I had a great experience. The overwater bungalow is wonderful. It is spacious, fully equipped and clean. A car is needed to go to the supermarket or to a restaurant. A kayak is available. I can definitely recommend this property.

We had a wonderful time. We loved being able to just hop in the water and loved that we could just float and snorkel from the bungalow. Nir was great and helped us whenever we had questions.

Secluded paradise
An incredible, private property with an amazing sunset view and wonderful wildlife in the lagoon. Despite the lockdown, Nir - the property manager - was so helpful, providing us with a car and a phone which were lifesavers in letting us see the island and enjoy take aways. The bungalow itself is really well appointed and the patio is huge. A brilliant start to our honeymoon! Thank you Richard and Nir, we hope to come back one day.
