Property description

A truly spectacular over water Bungalow. Extra housekeeping now available as well as special catered in bungalow dining (Must be booked well in advance)! COMPARE OUR RATES TO THE RESORTS. The Black Pearl is our most Luxurious Bungalow. Truly, the most beautiful privately owned over water home in all of French Polynesia... 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.

COMING SOON: Honeymoon, Anniversary and birthday packages!
Please note, that 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 info: Our over water home is the perfect location for snorkeling, walking hiking and swimming and the bungalow comes with two kayaks. 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. Every detail is exquisite. We have a 40 inch flat screen with a home theater system and DVD player, Stereo system that is iPod ready. High speed internet and wifi, Satellite with 2 sports channels, CNN, english movie channels, etc. Bathtub, Walk in shower. This is a luxurious as it gets.
Please reserve early as high season books up fast.
Many thanks and best regards,
Richard and Seiko

Location

Car: Necessary

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. Only two hours when daylight savings time ends. 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!
