PLEASE READ OUR REVIEWS. WE HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS LONGER THAN ANYONE AT THE COMPLEX... WE HAVE THE ONLY THREE OVER WATER BUNGALOWS WITH FULL AIR CONDITIONING, new appliances 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 and Brando's Bora Bora Bungalow are proud to present the newly remodeled Marlon's Over Water Hideaway... Right next door to his other one. 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 natural 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 four steps on 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!
PLEASE NOTE: Because we have kept our prices the same for the last five years, we will be raising our rates after February 1st, 2016... Any bookings made before that date will receive the existing rates... We have tried to keep our rates the same, but operating costs have become too expensive and we must adjust to ever rising prices.
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 Bungalows for vacation rentals. We have 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. Marlon's over water hideaway is 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.
Trip, Airline, Hotel and Car Assistance!!!: We would be pleased and happy to help you with your entire trip to paradise. We can arrange your International Flights to Tahiti on any applicable carrier, as well as your Inter-Island Flights on Air Tahiti. We can also book your Hotel Accommodations and Rentals in Tahiti or on any of the other islands you might care to visit. Please email me for further information. We use Rawhide Travel for this. They have been working with French Polynesia for over thirty five years and can take care of all your travel needs. Toll free number is: 888 222-7594

Amazing return trip!
This was our second time renting a bungalow (this time we were in bungalow two and last time we were in bungalow one). We loved everything about it! The bungalows have been upgraded with ac all throughout - which was awesome as we were traveling with an infant that is prone to heat rash. The rental car was new and awesome - and dealing with Nir was a pleasure. Only thing that would make the bungalows even more awesome would be the availability of a pack n play or crib! I'm sure we will be back for a third time!
As dreamy as 20 years ago
Great location, super roomy for 4 people and Nice to be able to see plenty of beautiful fishes right bellow the deck
Ideal for a family
Located 15 mins from the main town so you'll need a car.
Well-equipped with kayak, swim gear (snorkel, blow-up mattresses and tube) and complete kitchen so you can enjoy dinner at sunset on your private verandah.
Private platform to jump in and admire all the fish and there's even an outdoor shower.
No AC in lounge but AC in the 2 bedrooms work well.
Wish we could stay longer.
Could do with an update though and the sandy beach on the island is on the complete opposite side.
The day pass at the Sofitel on the sandy beach part of the island was great value at 5000 francs and you get to use all facilities including pool, towel, billiards, kayak, beach, and it includes 2 dishes of your choice (pasta, pizza, burger, salad etc).
Good but needs some refurbishment
Good but not luxurious. Standards in Bora Bora are lower than elsewhere so where the bungalow is nice it does need some updating
I am sorry Mary feels that way... I can only ask that the reader check out our many 5 star reviews. Our bungalows are well maintained and well appointed. The hotels charge thousands of dollars a night for a bedroom/sitting room and bathroom. We are the very best deal on the island, with full kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, bathroom and a gas barbecue on the lanai. We also provide free high speed Wifi and double Kayaks.
Nil is very knowledgable and helpful
Sleeping in Marlon Brandos house who would do that.
Thank you for letting us stay in Marlon Brando bunglow over the water. That was on my bucket list. Nir was so helpful with helping get our luggage the airline lost. Also in renting us a car. We did purchase a pearl necklace and matching earrings . I enjoyed going to the beach on the other side of the island it was so beautiful and so easy to swim in. We are seniors and they're really were no waves to knock you down. We are from Texas so it was quite a flight. Just leave a little something for the next person.
Thank You again.
The owners of the Black Pearl are proud to announce the acquisition and remodel of both of Marlon Brando's famous Over water Bungalows. 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 only three hours earlier PST. 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!
