Bungalow one - Brando's World Famous Over Water Bungalow in Bora Bora!

Waterfront Holiday home with kitchen and patio
READY TO RENT AGAIN!!! BEGINNING JULY 1st, 2020. 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 are proud to present Marlon Brando's own over water bungalow in Bora Bora. Along with his second Bungalow, Marlon's Over Water Hideaway... 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 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 to 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!

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.

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.

Secluded paradise
An incredible, private property with an amazing sunset view and wonderful wildlife in the lagoon. Despite the lockdown, Nir - the property manager - was so helpful, providing us with a car and a phone which were lifesavers in letting us see the island and enjoy take aways. The bungalow itself is really well appointed and the patio is huge. A brilliant start to our honeymoon! Thank you Richard and Nir, we hope to come back one day.

Perfect for a 20th Anniversary
Imagine waking up to water crashing under your bungelow every morning ( so soothing) feeding the fish with your love over coffee! Watching the sunset everyday bowing. Total privacy of your own dock and snorkeling place! Watching Marlon Brando’s movie Mutiny on the Bounty in his actual bungelow! Amazing! It was a total dream come true with my love just being there! We are very blessed! We loved our stay!

5/5 Excellent

Paradise
The bungalow was the perfect spot for us. It is located in a quiet area of Vaitape. Nir was extremely helpful with dinner reservations, and suggestions on various tours. Renting the car from Nir was ideal. We spent many evenings sitting on the porch watching the beautiful sunsets. Would recommend staying here in a heartbeat.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Paradise Retreat
