Excellent property for a quiet and secluded getaway. Our property host, Nir was very helpful and easy to get hold of during our seven day vacation. Picked up and dropped off us at the airport with our car rental which made it very convenient and stress free. A grill is provided on the spacious lanai, had our meals daily with a beautiful ocean view. Snorkeling and kayaking is great just off the bungalow.

Relaxation at it's best
Our stay was fantastic. The entire island is a haven for relaxation. Daily sunrise snorkeling from the deck was our favorite, there is lots of coral around the house and it's full of bright, colorful fish. Sunsets from the back deck are colorful and not to be missed. The house has every cooking gadget and appliance you could imagine. We only ate at a restaurant twice since cooking was so easy. Chin-Lee Market is open until 8 pm and has a wide selection of food. Nir and Tiare are very welcoming hosts, they have recommendations, they give you a smartphone to use, are always available to help with questions. Definitely rent a car from them, it's the best deal around and the car is very nice. A few quirks to mention to help other guests. The DVD player doesn't play USA-formatted discs, and the television has no satellite channels, streaming only. The instructions were confusing but a call to Nir cleared it up. Just hit the home button on the remote and log in to your Netflix or Amazon account for streaming. We didn't think we'd watch much TV but appreciated it once the sun set and the insects started biting. It was nice to retreat inside. The BBQ wheels fell off when we pulled it out from the wall and it cooked unevenly. But it still got the job done. I imagine the salt air is harsh on it. We brought our own snorkel gear and floaties with a rope to tie them off to the dock. I'm glad we did because we used them several times a day. We highy recommend staying at the Black Pearl, it was truly a great place.

Relaxation in Paradise
This property was everything that we had hoped it would be. The process from start to finish was easy and simple as the manager on site along with his wife were exceptionally helpful with all of our needs and questions. If you are looking for a getaway that you will remember for the rest of your life, then the Black Pearl in Bora Bora is that place. I would/will recommend this property to everyone I know. It was that good!

Happy we went this route!
My husband and I have stayed in Bora Bora before, but this was our first time not staying at a resort. We enjoyed the added privacy and having the entire space to ourselves. We definitely preferred having the option to stay in for a meal or go out in the rental car - and it was a good cost savings as well. (Getting the rental car from Nir was super easy and driving around the island- a first for us - really wasn’t difficult at all.) We also liked just cleaning up after ourselves, having a place to wash and hang laundry, and not having to maneuver around housekeeping everyday. We didn’t try out the provided kayak and we brought our own snorkeling gear, but it’s a nice perk that those are included in the rental. We spent every day snorkeling just outside the bungalow. The variety of fish, and the large snorkeling area meant we never got bored. There was more boat/kayak traffic than we anticipated, but it really wasn’t a man issue. Extra bonus, after the excursion we booked, they were able to drop us off right at the bungalow’s dock, so we basically got a nice boat tour of the island as an added perk. We also didn’t bother with the TV, so I can’t really review that, but the WiFi worked well, as did all the kitchen items. (Note - it took a bit of trial and error to figure out the stove/range as the controls were all symbols. We eventually had to do an internet search to figure out how to use it. A tip sheet or other instructions would be helpful to have on hand.) Overall, we are very happy we decided to try something outside the typical resort. If/when we visit Bora Bora again, we would definitely consider reserving this property.
