NOW WITH AIR CONDITIONING IN BOTH BEDROOMS and KAYAKS! Extra housekeeping available, as well as special catered in bungalow dining (Must be booked well in advance)! 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... Jack Nicholson owned #3.. 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.

Amazing Trip

Amazing stay and amazing host ! Nir was away and Tom was an amazing host, he ensured we were taken care of every step of the way. Glad we rented a car as it is a necessity, in addition make sure sure you eat at the food trucks in town.

Perfectly wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location and has all the extras...BBQ, lots of space, even a loft, sun deck to jump in three feet of water, kayak for two+1, plenty of towels, clean and comfortable. This is the perfect place to stay if you have a small family of maybe one or two children. Our arrangements included a contact to meet us at the ferry, a local mobile phone, a car rental...all much less expensive than local agencies can provide. A car is necessary for groceries and moving about the small island. We loved our stay!!! Thank you Richard and Seiko, and Nir!

Private & spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the over water bungalow - View across the lagoon, snorkeling off the deck, viewing fish from the deck, and just being in paradise!

There’s plenty of large towels, excellent Wifi service, perfect size washing machine ( bring your own laundry detergent capsules ), and the bedroom air conditioning is perfect for sleeping comfortably.

We rented a car through Avis, which is walking distance from the ferry dock, because we were unable to coordinate our rental through Nir. You do need a car to get to the bungalow from the ferry dock, as well as to get supplies, site seeing, restaurants, etc. Bora Diving will pick you up right off your deck!

A few things needed attention during our stay - light bulbs burned out, no cutting board, broken refrigerator shelf, which Richard took care of once communicated.

Make sure you know how to operate the cell phone Nir gives you, and understanding some French is very helpful throughout the island.

Great location for amazing sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location and great overwater bungalow in Bora Bora. Nir was helpful and our vacation went super smooth! Even watched the movie Mutiny on the Bounty on our last night there! The best part of the bungalow was just kicking it on the deck. That's pretty much where my husband and I stayed for the four days while we were there . Swims in the morning, excursions after that, followed by swims before we would cook our dinners . We ate out a total of one time , just to socialize with other people, but the best dinners were had right on the deck. The washer / dryer came in handy and the linens were stocked well. We rented stand up paddle boards from Laurie ( by the Intercintinental) and paddled around BB, exploring the island at our leisure. This was part one of an amazing journey to French Polynesia , and we will definitely be back!

great place for a quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

The property is out of the main area, so you'll need a car. Loved that there were only a few units, #1 was on the end which was really nice and private. Snorkeling was good right off our deck. No glass floor as the unit is older, but I didn't miss it at all. Lots of colorful fish right around our deck. Highly recommend it!!

Map

Car: necessary

The owners of the Black Pearl are proud to announce the acquisition and remodel of both of Marlon Brando's famous Over water Bungalows with FREE WIFI. Jack Nicholson Owned #3. James Michener called Bora Bora 'The most beautiful island in the world. And it is, it really is. Bora Bora is one of the Society Islands in the South Pacific, Tahiti being the largest. It is only a seven and a half hour flight from Los Angeles, and the same time zone as Hawaii. To get there, you take a direct flight to Tahiti and then a 45 minute island hopper to Bora Bora. You are now officially in paradise. Use your state of the art kitchen to prepare a meal, or dine out at the many fine restaurants on the island. The activities are endless if you wish to keep busy, or just lie down on the veranda, listen to the water and finish that 1000 page book you can't seem to finish. Life takes on new meaning when you are surrounded by the serenity and the beauty of Bora Bora. Come and see for yourself!
