Perfect vacation spot!
My husband & I stayed here for a little over a week. We loved everything about it! The bungalow is well appointed with all the modern amenities, great kitchen and bathroom. We loved how almost the entire wall opens up to the deck over the water. Great snorkeling right off of the deck!
The location is good as well, we watched a beautiful sunset every evening. It’s close enough to town where we could pick up a few groceries often. Jessica is fantastic, super helpful and a pleasure to work with!
Bungalow No. 3 is number one in our hearts!
The bungalow is amazing, the view was gorgeous and Jessica was fantastic. The owner of the bungalow has done a lot of work to update and create a beautiful space on the water. We enjoyed a fantastic kitchen where we cooked dinner and breakfast daily. We rented a car (definitely a must) and drove into town to grocery shop. We experienced two different kinds of stingrays, an octopus and a black tip reef shark right from our balcony. Early morning is the best time for that. Jessica was extremely helpful leading up to our trip, and called us a couple times while we were their just to make sure things were going ok. You can rest assured that you are in good hands when you are working with Jessica. Whenever the time comes for us to head back to Bora Bora, we hope that we can rent the No. 3 bungalow again.
Thank you Todd for your kind comments. I am so happy you enjoyed Bora Bora Overwater Bungalow N3!!! It really is a special and relaxing experience.
We hope to see you here again one day.
This bungalow was the perfect place for relaxation in Bora Bora. After the whirlwind of a wedding and traveling from Oregon, we couldn't have picked a better place. Our stay was improved drastically by the help of Jessica. She made our trip about as easy as possible. If there was anything we needed she was there to help us. Not only would we return here for another trip, we will tell everyone we know how great it was. As I was planning our trip here, I relied a good bit on the reviews for information so I will leave some tips I feel could help and improve your future visit here. Definitely rent a vehicle for your stay. The two towns, Vaitape and Matira are where the restaurants, shops and bars are all located. If you are looking to go to the grocery stores (there are 3 markets) and/or eat out/get drinks, you will need transportation. The kitchen and grill located at the bungalow was perfect for us as we enjoy eating in and cooking ourselves. Also, we did a snorkeling tour that picked us up from the dock which was nice. Most places take credit card so that was convenient. They even took USD which helped as well, however you will get change in the local currency. For example, 1000 xpf equals to around 10 USD. ( Remove the last two digits for a close, quick conversion). Most of the bars/restaurants work on a similar schedule which took us time to get used to. For example most will have the bar open all day, however only serve food from 11-2pm and 6-10pm so plan accordingly. Most nights we decided to stay in, cook and just enjoy the quiet, beautiful view. Overall it was a life changing trip and we couldn't be happier with it. Our favorite part was exploring what the island has to offer and basically just winging it and getting to know the local population and culture. If it wasn't for Jessica's help and information, I am not sure what we would have done. Thanks for the best trip ever Jessica!
Perfect Bungalow in an Idyllic Setting
We really enjoyed our stay. It had all of the amenities with a fully equipped kitchen, a modernized bathroom, and a very comfy bed. It was great listening to music on the Bose system while enjoying one of the best views on the island. It was also located in a quiet neighborhood. It was also fantastic to snorkel and kayak right off the patio deck. Natasha was our host and she was very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back!!
Tranquility in Paradise.
Had a great stay in overwater bungalow #3. Jessica the manager was fantastic. answered all emails promptly and made my wife and I feel at home. Was able to stretch out and relax and go for a swim and or snorkel right out the door. Snorkeling equipment, boogie boards and a 2 person kayak were free to use..
The bungalow was spacious. 2 large folding glass doors stayed open the whole time, except when we went site seeing, even when we slept. Well supplied kitchen. Had to learn how to use the coffee makers
We had an amazing 10 days in this lovely home over the water. The house is fully stocked with everything you need for rest, relaxation, cooking, and water fun. We cooked most of our own meals and enjoyed driving to town everyday to be part of the local culture and, of course, get our fresh baguette and brie. Jessica was a gracious host and I encourage you to take advantage of renting her car. It is too far to walk or bike to town and you will definitely want to drive around the island to get to lunch at Snack Matira. The snorkel right off the deck is good and we dove in every day to see lots of fish, clams, and one day a sting ray & a turtle! Take advantage of the Bose system and link up your device for your own music selection. The air in the bedroom works very well and it certainly helps to cool down at night. The airport is directly across from the house and we suggest you ask Jessica for an airport transfer to the house vs. using the ferry. It is a 10 minute ride and great way to get there are back. We have stayed all over the world at beach homes and this was our best vacation yet (this is also my first review after many many Home Away rentals - we loved it that much).
If you are looking for a day on the water please check out H2O Bora Bora. David is wonderful and will make sure you get to the BEST dive/snorkel locations - also, everyone can pick you up from your private dock!
We ate good food everywhere, but did not enjoy Bloody Mary's as it was very dark, hot, and the food was not spectacular - a tourist locale for sure. Bora Bora Beach Club, The St James, and Matira Beach Restaurant were all very good.
Bora Bora does not have many activities and is really set up for water sports and lazing around. They call it Boring Bora for a reason. If you need rest and more rest with a few days of fun water activities thrown in, then this is for you. The resorts on the island are very expensive and you are basically trapped on the Motu for food and activities. Renting a home allows you the freedom to explore and not have to rely on a water taxi to get to the main island. This house is a great selection - WE WILL BE BACK!
