“Honeymoon in Heaven”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed here the first week in October 2014 as part of a 2 week honeymoon. We stayed the first week here and the second week at the Pearl Beach Resort. I feel like this was the way to do it. 10-14 days is perfect for Bora Bora. Since we traveled 20 hours to get there from New Jersey, we wanted to stay long enough to enjoy ourselves without feeling rushed. We are 31 and 28 years of age. This place was amazing! We were definitely nervous renting this property site unseen and it only having one review. We gambled and we won big time!

First, let me tell you that the photos on the website are exactly like the place looks. It is amazingly clean, modern and laid out perfect for a couple on their honeymoon. The kitchen was modern with an induction stove and all the cookware you need. Eating out in Bora Bora is expensive. Having the kitchen allowed us to go into town to Chin Lee or Super U grocery stores and get stuff to cook our own gourmet dinners. Furthermore, the view from the balcony is the ultimate place to sit down and enjoy your dinner and some drinks.

The owner Ed was extremely helpful. We were able to communicate with him daily via email if we had any questions. The wifi in the house was an added benefit that allowed us to stay in touch with the rest of the world if we so desired. Download the Viber App before you go so you can make phone calls using the wifi connection on your mobile phone. Ed also provided us with a rental vehicle for the week which was our most valuable asset during our stay. Having the vehicle allowed us to come and go at our leisure whether it was running into town to shop, driving down to Matira Beach for the day or headed to a restaurant for the evening. You will need a car to be able to do what you want, when you want without waiting on scheduled buses.

Activities: The house comes with two stand-up paddle boards, snorkel gear and two bicycles. We didn't use the bicycles because we witnessed too many times the dogs that wander the street chase after cars. It happened twice to us. We brought our own snorkel gear so we were good on that. The stand-up paddle boards were a lot of fun but just be prepared to carry them down the steep driveway and back up when you are done.

That brings me to the driveway. If you are afraid of driving up a steep incline and turning around in a small parking lot like Austin Powers then you might want to leave the driving up to someone else. The parking spot for the bungalow is atop a steep driveway. Once you do it once or twice you get a good handle on it. I found it to be adventuresome.

Staying at the bungalow allowed us to see the mainland of Bora Bora and how the people of Bora Bora really lived. We were able to make our own meals which definitely kept the price down on our vacation. We had a stunning view to look at each morning, day and evening.

The best advice I could give to someone looking to come here is to do what we did. Stay at this breathtaking bungalow for a few days to learn the layout of Bora Bora, eat meals at a reasonable price and enjoy the view. Then I would head to a resort and stay in an overwater bungalow for the rest of the trip.

Tip: Check with Ed to see how long you can rent the car from him. We were fortunate enough to rent the car from him while we stayed at Pearl Beach Resort. Each resort (even the ones on the motu's) have a parking lot where you can keep your rental car parked. We made friends with another couple from our resort that did not have a car. We took them to places they never would have gone easily if having to arrange travel through the resort. They said meeting us and going places by using the car was the highlight of their trip.

best breakfast: cook it at the bungalow looking out at your beautiful view
best lunch place: Snack Matira
best place to eat dinner: Mai Kai Marina & Yacht Club Restaurant

activities: Maohi Nui tours (6 hour shark and stingray snorkel with lunch)
make sure you tell them that you are staying at the condominiums and they will give you a deal and come pick you up by boat.

Without a doubt, hands down, I would recommend this bungalow to friends and family.

“Luxurious, modern hillside bungalow with great sunset views of Bora Bora lagoon”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

I doubt you'll find a more modern and wonderfully located private residence to rent in Bora Bora, unless it’s at one of the luxury hotels that charge ten times more than this vacation rental. And the view is breathtaking…much better than the view from the few bungalows on the water! Plus, we were able to cross the street to snorkel and ride bikes from our location.

The owners have designed the most efficient and luxurious bungalow, with an amazing view of the Bora Bora lagoon. The bungalow is fully air-conditioned and has beautiful newly remodeled finishes in the kitchen, bath and living space with lots of light wood and the most modern appliances. We loved the new indoor and outdoor furniture - especially the padded lounge chairs with ottomans on the large deck overlooking the lagoon, plus the dining table with padded chairs for outdoor dining on the deck.

The provided BBQ, bicycles, paddle boards, washer and dryer and snorkel equipment were just icing on the Tahitian cake. The bungalow is less than 15 minutes by car from the main town and ferry dock in Viatape, so you have easy access to the grocery store, restaurants and shops.

If you want to stay in touch with the world or be entertained, the bungalow provides satellite cable, a really cool 3-D television, Blu-Ray player and sound system, all stuff not found in many people's permanent homes. The WIFI was dependable and robust throughout our stay.

Also, the local caretakers speak English and greeted us upon arrival on the island, helped us pick up our rental car, showed us the way to the property and spent time showing us how to work everything and give us tips on area. A wonderful personal touch!

Staying at this private bungalow was an much more amazing and special experience than staying at one of the very expensive resorts! We were more than pleased.
