We were greeted as soon as we got off the ferry by Nir, who had our rental car and a cell phone to contact him. We used Nir to make a reservation for a lagoon excursion and he was right on. When we called him, Nir also mentioned a dancing ceremony in town that night. A suggestion would be provide...

We stayed in this bungalow on the north shore of Bora Bora for over two weeks in November, 2015. Nir, the manager, was helpful in providing information and getting us to the property. He also provided a local cell we could use to contact him. I debated between three and four stars because, despite a few issues, it is spacious...

Management response:

I am sorry that you had issues with our bungalow. The wifi on the island is now super fast, new pillows have been added as well as a brand new barbecue from the States. The views to me of the motus are beautiful and the sun sets right in front. Our clients have never had a issue with the furniture....

Unlike upscale resorts on the nearby motu, Bora Bora itself is a place of almost rustic simplicity. This wonderful bungalow makes that simplicity homey and comfortable. The snorkeling right off the veranda is a lovely introduction to the more exotic options off Bora Bora's south coast. The kitchen has the necessary basics, and we used the grill almost nightly.

About the neighborhood
A gorgeous covered terrace, overlooking the lagoon and palm tree-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 s... more
