We stayed at the Marlon's World Famous Over Water Hideaway for a family trip. Living over the water for the week was an amazing experience. We were up to kayak and snorkel every morning right from the deck.
We ate meals on the outside deck watching the boats pass by.
The house was tastefully furnished and had everything we needed to be comfortable. We cooked in frequently and found the kitchen well stocked with the necessities of cooking. The house has privacy despite having neighbors, they are set up to view the water, not each other.
The information from the owner made our stay even better, with information about shopping, boating and sight seeing. We enjoyed two trips on the boat tours, with the boat company picking us up right at the house! The kayak was awesome and made for a daily excursion to see what fish we could see, but the fish came right to the house on most days!
I would highly recommend a stay in this over water bungalow for a very private relaxing holiday on Bora Bora.
I must mention our new friends found thanks to the owners recommendation, Myriama Prokop's pottery shop is amazing (we came home with a few of her pieces) and her husband Roderick, who has a fantastic web site for English speaking traveler's to Bora Bora, bora- bora-insider.com which led us to many fine eateries, bakeries and events as well as a well written history of the island.
