My mother wished to celebrate her 80th birthday here, having been to B B several times before, sometimes in this same bungalow. Since her last visit it had been massively renovated with all mod cons: air conditioned (if you want) rooms, ceiling fan in lounge plus extra table top fan, tastefully decorated, lots of towels, washing machine, grill cooker on the terrace, microwave & mini oven, coffee maker, fridge, boiling hot water instantly, good shower, safe, outdoor shower and hose for when you come back from swimming, easy access to sea via stepladder, car park nearby, small gate to stop dogs wandering in. Car rental via Nir the property manager, good value, no air con but open windows is enough, check water tank though as screen gets dusty quickly. Public transport a problem. Nir met us at the dock, supplied us with keys, local phone which is very handy for bookings, wi fi info etc. Bungalow easy to find, 15 mins drive away form Vaitape with its 2 supermarkets. Food is expensive but fresh - had to laugh at "No eggs in July". Some restaurants are part of larger hotels or modest local eateries. Snorkeling in immediate area modest (severe hurricane decades ago and general pollution have taken their toll) - best organise proper snorkeling trips s for much better experience & bring good underwater camera, unbelievable! Expensive but really worth it - ask Nir.
My only niggle - no tv, would have been nice to see local recaps of Heiva celebrations. Only 3 dvds there, one of which was of course Mutiny / Bounty. But, plenty of reading material. Also, not enough plates, mismatched cutlery etc. For us 3 girls no problem but larger groups may have to ask for this to be sorted.
However, these are minor details in an otherwise glorious stay. Thank you Nir for being so helpful and making my mother's time an unforgettable experience.

“Amazing place to stay (Mutiny on the Bounty).”

Hello Folks,

When booking this bungalow don't be fooled that your going to get what you bargained for. you will get more more more... as the old song goes but how do you like it? If you answer yes to peace, beauty and tranquility then you have reached your final destination. Brando in name and history... yes, the famous star owned these until his death whereby he remained in-twinned with his co star whilst making mutiny on the bounty.

We did not realize this until we came across signed pictures from the stars themselves. Apparently, we were advised that Liz Taylor and Elton had been guests in our very bungalow and Jack Nicholson at some point owned one of the 5 bungalows. Magic.

Apart from this you are situated in a prime and safe area with stunning water that has an array of fish to keep you occupied for hours. The Bungalow was spacious and very well maintained. The caretaker was very nice and even rented his car for the week, which was required should you need to do some shopping.

The island is stunning but in comparison to Moorea we thought it wasn't as panoramic. We had dreamed of going to Bora Bora forever and although we were stunned by its beauty we were equally stunned by how many people lived on the island... in the National Geographic it looks isolated and a place of mystery. I have to say the overwhelming mount of water bungalows spoiled the islands beauty as they piled up like a crash on the M6.

Food was very expensive for example a small tub of lemon sorbet setting you back at 15 euros... take your packed lunch kids. Locals were hit and miss and as they are described as the smiling nation we felt that there was not much smiling going on... maybe my glitter beret startled them perhaps.

Bora Bora is a dream destination but with its rise in glittarti stars visiting they have populated the best beaches where you are not allowed to visit unless you have 32k per person to spend on a weeks holiday... ouch... yet if you are adventurous you will find some remaining beaches that are stunning. The best beach we found was Pineapple Beach on Moorea itself and this was isolated with stunning white soft sands and water like a bath.

The holiday was AMAZING and locations we stayed at were simply brilliant. Cost wise you will need to spend some money to visit this destination... however, we co-joined this along with a few nights in LA so all in all the adventure of a life time.

You will never get the same feel if you stay in a hotel... getting up and dropping into the ocean of dreams is what this holiday entails...

so become a mutineer and reclaim your bounty.

Bon voyage!!!

My husband and I enjoyed 12 days here celebrating our 30th anniversary. Everything you see and read about this bungalow is exactly what you get and the sunsets were amazing. It was so peaceful and quiet, it was tough to leave. Nir, the manager, was always available to take care of any problems and all were quickly resolved. Having an "island phone" was the best. We were able to make dinner reservations and schedule excursions on our own. We also rented a car thru Nir which allowed us to travel around the island for half the price the rental agencies were charging.

Richard, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us and Nir, thank you for everything!

Absolutely loved, loved, loved this place and the island of Bora Bora. I was hesitant at first sending payment to someone in California for a rental international, but it was safe. The correspondence and payment transaction was easy and timely. When you step off the plane in Bora Bora you are absolutely in paradise with screen saver shots everywhere. We chose the overwater bungalows because we did not want the resort style or prices. We rented a car from Nir who is your contact once you arrive in Bora Bora. Nir was at the dock when we arrived on the island and had everything set up for us. Everything was exactly how the owner states in their description. The phone provided by Nir is great and helped us out when I had to call the restaurants and excursions on the island. The bungalow was beautiful and very spacious. We used the gas grill for dinner a couple of nights for dinner, bought a homemade Pizza and chicken at a roulette a couple of nights, and Bloody Mary's a couple of nights and the microwave and toaster oven came in handy too. We snorkeled in front of our bungalow every morning and afternoon and fed the fish every morning and evening with the bread we purchased at the local store. The price of food in very high but manageable. If you like doing things on your own and not being bothered by anybody this is the place to go and relax. We will be back to stay again in the bungalow and hopefully one day be able to retire in Bora Bora.

My husband and I stayed here for a week in March. Everything was made very easy with Nir meeting us at the airport pier with the keys and the car rental. It is a bit removed from the stores and shopping so I would say the car rental is a necessary expense. Nir was quick to answer our calls with any questions we had and lined up some scuba diving for us. The bungalow is very beautiful and it was amazing to jump in for a swim whenever you felt like it. The snorkelling is good right off the deck, we saw a few octopus and lots of other fish. We did the majority of our meals at the bungalow and felt the kitchen was fully equipped for all our needs.
Having the car to drive all the way around the island was great. There are many beautiful places to stop and take photos that would be missed if you were staying on the motus or without the car rental. Thanks for the great hospitality Nir and Richard!!
