    It was very nice! The ac unit was difficult to run at first but as soon as we got instructions on how to start it then it worked great! Bed was cozy. Snorkeling was great!

    The best place to stay in Bora Bora
    We looked at a lot of places before we chose Richard's 3 bungalows and we definitely chose the right accommodations. Everything about it was right. The location, the price, the beauty, the hosts, the recommendations the experience were all extremely on point. The place is beautifully decorated. Our property managers were easy to communicate with and get in touch with and were available for every question and request. They rented a car to us and gave us a phone to use locally. They set up everything we needed and their website had suggestions for things to do on the island that worked out perfectly for our group. Waking up in the morning and watching the sun rise on the deck while having breakfast by the water was divine. We were able to kayak and swim right off the deck. We used the barbecue grill to grill in the evenings. It was just such a perfect trip thanks to these bungalows. It couldn't have been better anywhere else. We are lucky that they were available for our group. If you see that it is available, don't even hesitate. Book it immediately!!

    5/5 Excellent

    We loved the property and the location was simply spectacular. Thank you for opening your space to the world! We truly enjoyed our time in Bora Bora. Nir is a gem and was always helpful.

    Bucket list 50th birthday trip
    This was all I had imagined and more! The photos don’t do the Black Pearl overwater bungalow justice. We loved the covered lanai and spent hours there reading, eating our meals and watching the boats go by. We also loved snorkeling right off the deck and saw so many amazing fish right in front of the bungalow! Everything you need is here. The kitchen is well-equipped for all your cooking. There are two grocery stores relatively close as the island is very small. We took Richard’s advice and did the Bora Bora Tupuna Jeep tour and highly recommend it. We also splurged and ate out our last night here at Fare Manuia and enjoyed every bite! It was definitely a trip of a lifetime and we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    5/5 Excellent

    There is absolutely no better place to stay in Bora Bora. Everything was perfect. We rented a car from Nir who was waiting for us at the dock and was easy to communicate with. Almost all our meals were cooked at the bungalow with the high end appliances. The bed was amazing and even the shower was top notch. The kayaks were fun and the snorkeling was great! Tons of fish, clams, coral and even a resident eel. We watched stingrays swim by right off the deck. The only bad thing was having to leave. Honestly, it was better than I could have ever imagined!
