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.

Dream vacation at Marlon's Over water Bungalow

Dream vacation at Marlon's Over water Bungalow
  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with Marlon's bungalow. We found the condo to be just as described and the surrounding views were spectacular. The unit itself is well equipped and the outside deck is fantastic. We used the BBQ quite a bit and the clear ocean water surrounding the bungalow is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. We only wished that the unit had come equipped with a kayak... It is absolutely necessary to have a car when renting this bungalow as there are no stores, etc within walking distance....Car rentals are pricey so factor that into your budget. All in all, we would highly recommend any of the bungalows. Richard and Nir were great to work with and Nir was very helpful once we arrived. He provided transportation from the airport ferry and a provided a car for us to rent for the week. He also helped us with dinner and activity reservations and recommendations for places to eat and things to do. We would love to return beautiful Bora and Bora and would stay there again.

Had a wonderful vacation here!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for a fabulous vacation with our two adult children. My husband and I took our two kids (18 and 22 years old) for a special once in a life time family vacation to celebrate our sons graduation from college and our daughters graduation from high school. We all had a wonderful time!
So much to do....swimming and fishing off the deck, snorkeling, pontoon boat rental to tour around the island, hiking high in the hills for amazing views, private boat tours to the atoll and motu, and lounging on beautiful Matira Beach. Some days we just relaxed, read good books and napped. If you are going to Bora Bora the ONLY place to stay is a house on the water like this one! So rare to find. It had everything and such privacy too. They even have flood lights on the deck aimed into the water so you can watch the fish at night. Which we ALL loved to do.
Thank you Richard for always being so timely and helpful every time I emailed. And a big thank you to Nir who took such good care of our every need. What a guy! My husband pulled his back and Nir even worked hard to find us a person who could help with his injury. Nir did everything! Provided us with a car to rent at a good price for Bora Bora, made perfect suggestions for tours, gave us a cell phone so we could call him anytime we needed something. He was always there for us. We can't say enough about his fun personality and helpful qualities. My kids really liked him!
Bora Bora is so beautiful. My husband and I have traveled the world. For me, Matira Beach is the most gorgeous I have ever seen. And the highlight of our trip was the private all day tour Nir recommended: Patrick's Tours/Maohi Nui with Rapa as our captain and tour guide. This all day private lagoon tour/swim with the sharks, and private Polynesian Lunch on the motu was AMAZING!
Our kids said the day was A NUMBER 10 DAY for them. Thank you for helping us created memories to last a life time!

I truly wish everyone going to Bora Bora will get to expereince this.

  • 5 of 5
After seeing the Brando's, I knew it's what we'd been looking for. I have to admit I was apprehensive renting from someone I had never met. I have to thank those who took the time to write the reviews. It gave me the assurance to jump on the opportunity. Any doubt I had was eased after my interactions with Richard who was very reasonable and responsive.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Tiare (Nir was out of town) who gave us the key to the bungalow and a cell phone so we could call whenever we had a problem. We did call her a few times and she was quick to respond and solved all our problems. The two bungalows are very similar and are exactly as depicted in the photos – spacious, clean, well equipped, nicely furnished and situated right in the lagoon. The best snorkeling spot is actually right in front. There’s more to see here than in front of the other three bungalows in the complex. We saw an octopus, shy moray eels, parrot fish, spotted eagle rays (if you stay quiet, they’ll let you swim along with them), and many more… We came across a school of travelly that patrolled the water. They were the biggest fish we saw in front of the bungalows. There is so much to see and enjoy. My favorite times are early mornings and late afternoons when the outrigger canoes and stand up paddlers come out on the water. During our stay, we went on a snorkel excursion and a fishing trip, got picked up and dropped off at the dock right by the next bungalow. We rented a car from Tiare. Without the use of a car, we would miss out on getting fresh baguettes in the morning, cruising around to the many postcard perfect picturesque spots, and greeting the fishermen when they came in with their catch of the day.

Bora Bora is paradise and you’d feel it the moment you step off the plane. I am sure we would have had a great time if we were to stay in the over water bungalows in one of the resorts. But I would not trade it for what we had. Apart from the money we save, what makes the Marlon’s and Brando’s so unique – especially after seeing where the luxury resorts are in Bora Bora – is how it made us feel. There are only five over water bungalows in the complex so we had total privacy. They are on the main island, so we’re connected to what makes the island so special apart from its natural beauty– its people, their culture and way of life. I feel so blessed to have experienced it not just as an outsider coming to a dream location, but as someone who truly lives in paradise.

Overwater Paradise! Quiet, Comfortable, Affordable, The Best!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Brandos overwater bungalow on Bora Bora the week of Christmas. We enjoyed everything about the bungalow. It was clean and roomy and very comfortable. We loved being able to snorkel from our house. We loved having our own home and not having to pay the resort prices for food and for our stay. I would definitely stay at Brandos again and would recommend to anyone not needing to be pampered at an overpriced resort. If you stay at Brandos you will need a car (ask for Nirs information - he was such a great help) because it is on a quiet side of the island away from any shopping or restaurants.

AN AMAZING PLACE! THIS IS AN OVER THE WATER "HOUSE", NOT A TRADITIONAL BUNGALOW!

AN AMAZING PLACE! THIS IS AN OVER THE WATER "HOUSE", NOT A TRADITIONAL BUNGALOW!
  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Brando’s Over the Water Bungalow was absolutely amazing. I am a planner and researcher. I googled everything I could about Bora Bora before traveling there, however, the internet information was very limited. Once we arrived and made our way around the island, I discovered that we made by far the best decision by staying here. This is a complete and full functioning home, not just an ‘over the water bedroom and bathroom’ as compared to the many resorts. I will honestly say that the pictures posted do not capture the true beauty of the surroundings and views, it exceeded our expectations. We had unlimited access to the island, which is what sets this bungalow apart from most of the resorts with over the water bungalows. I heard other travelers complain about how they had limited access to be able to come to the mainland from the resorts on the private islands. The community setting where this bungalow is located is very private, very clean, quiet, and a safe environment. Richard has three of the five bungalows over the water, a home to suit every need! This review can easily be applied to any of three if you are considering Marlon’s Over the Water Bungalow, Brando’s Over the Water Bungalow or the Black Pearl.
Richard was so friendly and welcoming and such a pleasure to work with. Once in Bora Bora, he arranged a local friend, Nir to meet and greet us and provide us with a cell phone to be able to contact him for any of our needs, and we did! Nir was readily available every time we called, and always had knowledgeable responses to our requests, from simple restaurant recommendations to scheduling our excursions. He also had a rental car available for us, which can be a little hard to reserve in advance on the island, and I would highly recommend having a car to get around at your leisure. Nir’s recommendation for a private boat tour around the island was the highlight of our trip. Patrick with Maohi Nui gave us a real experience we will never forget! Sharks, stingrays, coral, sea life, and amazing snorkeling locations which are only accessible by boat!
Things about the house that we found comfortable and surprising: great water pressure for being over the water, wifi, the cool breeze constantly blowing throughout the house, drinking morning coffee on the deck watching the sunrise, snorkeling off the deck we saw the occasional sting ray, schools of yellow jacks, lion fish, butterfly fish, angel fish, moorish idols, and spotted eel and more!

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!
