  • Wonderful overwater bungalow-world's most beautiful island

    "The Black Pearl is a beautiful, well-maintained and well-equipped overwater bungalow. We were very pleased with our time here and highly recommend it to others considering a trip to the islands of Tahiti. Having owned waterfront properties in Hawaii and Florida, we are familiar with the maintenance challenges created by salt water environments. The Hollands are obviously dedicated to keeping this home well maintained. Although the home is not new, the appliances, electronic gadgets and painted services are all functional, fresh and new looking. The decorating scheme is peaceful, welcoming and appropriate for this beautiful island setting. Their on-Island property manager, Nir, was very friendly and likable. Prior to our arrival, he quickly responded to each of our emails explaining the details of where we would meet him after our arrival on Bora Bora. He met us on the dock-on time-with a rental car and a big sincere smile. He gave us a loaner cell phone with his phone number, explaining that we should feel free to call him in case of emergency or if we needed help or answers to questions. Having Nir's availability was very comforting since English speakers are not always easily found here. While on island, we noted there are two general categories of tourists: 1) Those who feel uncomfortable without direct input from tour guides & schedules for locations to see & events to attend. 2) Those who consider themselves more independent & adventuresome, who prefer going their own way and exploring without a lot of scheduling. The Black Pearl is a perfect choice for this latter category of traveler. Its location on the north end of the island is not only beautiful, but very quiet. The few people we encountered were mostly natives (who were sweet/friendly/welcoming) with a smattering of other like minded tourists. The car rental (from Nir) is a necessity, since town is a 15 minute drive to the south. Each day we cruised around the island enjoying the beauty. We would include trips to one of the excellent restaurants as well as a shopping trip to Chen Lee's or SUPER U for our evening sashimi/sushi & beverages. The worst thing about staying at the Black Pearl in Bora-Bora was... having to leave-we miss it already. What a lovely life experience this past two weeks has been!"

  • Most amazing place

    "Everything was perfect! The house was so great... and the fenced yard was perfect for our 2 year old . Snorkeling right off the backyard. The neighbors were so helpful, helping us with jeep tours etc. He even shared his fish catch with us a couple nights. I can't imagine a better spot in Bora Bora. The hotel is walking distance where you can catch tours and get to the spa nearby, I dream of going back!"

  • 5 Star Stay

    "Our visit to Maeva Hoa was nothing short of incredible! The bungalow was modern and could be compared to a nice home in the states (which is pretty uncommon here). Very user friendly, well put together manuals on how to use all the electronics. The Highlight of our trip was being able to charter the Maeva Hoa boat for it's maiden voyage! The captain, Rapa, exceeded our expectations by picking us up right in front of the bungalow then taking us on the excursion of a lifetime. Can't wait to be back, thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us!!!"
