Amazing stay in Bora Bora!
We loved staying in this overwater bungalow on the main island versus on a Motu. We are avid snorkelers so particulary enjoyed that we could snorkel right off the deck. We also were quite amused that we could be picked up at the bungalow dock by Pure Snorkeling for our half day snorkel outing to see manta rays, eagle rays and an extremely beautiful and clear water coral garden.
We also like to kayak but are used to sit-on-top kayaks where you do not have to worry about water loading in to the vessel. We were a bit disappointed about the kayaks at the bungalow as they were not sit-on-tops and were missing their scupper/hatch tops so we worried about them filling with water when we were out so didn't end up using them. That was a minor disappointment compared to how much we loved and enjoyed everything else about staying in the bungalow.
Nir made checking in and checking out so easy and supplied us with a phone to reach him for questions which we greatly appreciated. We also rented a car from him which worked out very well. The bungalow is well appointed for vacation living, with lovely kitchen, comfortable master bed and bath. We particularly enjoyed lounging out on the lanai watching a variety of boats pass by as well as lovely sunsets. It was very difficult to leave. This is a terrific place to stay on Bora Bora -- we definitely hope we can do it again sometime!
Our tropical home away from home!
We rented the Black Pearl for our 20th wedding anniversary. It was the best decision!
Don’t waste your $ on the large resorts!! The Black Pearl is your home away from home. We arrived to find an extremely clean and updated bungalow sitting over the water. The location is great. It sits on the north side of the island, away from the bustle of town. Be sure to rent a car from Nir, he is the point of contact for the house. Town is about a 10 min ride. There are several grocery stores in town that you can get pretty much anything you want. We probably went to Chin Lees every day.
The bed was great, the shower was large and wonderful. The appliances were up to date. The lighting was perfect!
We were so happy about our decision to rent and would do it again in a heart beat. Nothing beats waking up to a sun rise over the lagoon - we’ll except the sunset!
Black Pearl Stay
We just got back a couple of days ago from staying at Richard’s place, the Black Pearl. Our first time ever in Bora Bora and we picked the perfect place to stay! Great location, easy access to everything on the island. Nir, the contact person in Bora Bora was amazing. He picked us up from the shuttle, got us our car, gave us all details, etc. he was so helpful and nice!!
The property itself was exactly what we expected. It had everything we needed, was very clean, spacious and just what we wanted for our getaway!
Will be coming back and will definitely stay here again!
This property was used as a honeymoon location and didn’t disappoint. The weather was alittle disappointing but couldn’t even take away from the absolute beautiful private location. Little things went wrong but Nir and Richard were immediately on top of everything. Would book this place again in a heartbeat.
A TRUE GEM
I feel so grateful that we discovered the Black Pearl, as it is a beautiful one of a kind gem that is becoming more rare in this world that we live in. From my first initial contact with Richard when we booked, to the very last minute of our stay, service could not have been better.
Nir, the local property manager, is an invaluable resource, readily available, connected into the local scene and literally takes care of any business or questions that arise. I highly recommend renting a car from him, as part of the beauty of the Black Pearl is it’s location, which is a bit outside of Viatape, where you can do all of your food shopping, as well as purchase Polynesian goods. In addition, we drove around the island quite a bit, enjoying the beauty of Bora Bora from many of its perspectives.
The Black Pearl is one of a kind, I didn’t see any other bungalows begin compare to it. The quality of the furnishings, kitchen and art work bring an island sense of luxury to this exceptional home. The thoughtful attention to artistic details is evident, something not to be found at a typical resort. And don’t get me started on the gorgeous tiled bathroom!
Another bonus is that this place is quite spacious, with plenty of room for two people to move around in. We had two massage therapists over to do couples massages for us, and they were able to set up both tables easily in the living room.
The sun deck was where we spent most of our time when not out and about doing touristy type things. It has an excellent screen at one end of the deck that blocks the wind on gusty days (as will happen on islands), so we were able to enjoy the view regardless of weather. One of our favorite times of day was when the outrigger rowing teams passed by on their early evening practices.
I also booked other parts of our French Polynesia vacation through Ron at Rawhide Travel and Tours per Richard’s suggestion in his property information and details. This really helped our entire trip go as seamlessly as possible. These guys are a goldmine of information.
If you’re looking to escape from the theme park feel that can come with resorts, I wholeheartedly recommend this place, it’s a one of a kind experience not to be missed!
Thank you for the beautiful review Karen. I am so happy you appreciated all of our hard work. My wife and I love our home and can't wait to get back ourselves. I agree, it is the perfect bungalow, and I hope to welcome you back some time soon. With warm regards, Richard and Seiko
James Michener genaamd Bora Bora 'Het mooiste eiland in de wereld. En het is, het is echt.
Bora Bora is een van de Society Eilanden in de Stille Zuidzee, Tahiti de grootste. Het is slechts een zeven en een half uur durende vlucht van Los Angeles en slechts drie uur eerder PST. Dezelfde tijdzone als Hawaii. Slechts twee uur wanneer de zomertijd eindigt. Om er te komen, neemt u een rechtstreekse vlucht naar Tahiti en vervolgens een 45 minuten eiland hopper naar Bora Bora. Je bent nu officieel in het paradijs. Gebruik je state of the art keuken om een maaltijd te bereiden of uit eten bij de vele goede restaurants op het eiland. De activiteiten zijn eindeloos als u bezig te houden, of gewoon liggen op de veranda, luisteren naar het water en afwerking die 1000 pagina's tellende boek kunt u niet lijkt te eindigen. Het leven krijgt een nieuwe betekenis wanneer u omringd door de rust en de schoonheid van Bora Bora. Kom en zie voor jezelf!
