It is only a seven and a half hour flight from Los Angeles and only three hours earlier PST. The same time zone as Hawaii. To get there, you take a direct flight to Tahiti and then a 45 minute island hopper to Bora Bora. You are now officially in paradise. Use your modern kitchen to prepare a meal, or dine out at the many fine restaurants on the island. The activities are endless if you wish to keep busy, or just lie down on the veranda, listen to the water and finish that 1000 page book you can't seem to finish. Life takes on new meaning when you are surrounded by the serenity and the beauty of Bora Bora. Come and see for yourself! PLEASE NOTE: Because we have kept our prices the same for the last five years, we will be raising our rates after February 1st, 2016... Any bookings made before that date will receive our existing rates... We have tried to keep our rates the same, but operating costs have become too expensive and we must adjust to ever rising prices. COMING SOON: Honeymoon, Anniversary and birthday packages!More

As Little Frieda would say, "Wowie zowie! This is *it*!" My wife and I don't really like hotels, let alone resorts - we prefer to "do for ourselves" rather than be catered to (and being dependent on the caterers). This bungalow was absolutely perfect for...More

The bungalow was the perfect place and set up for our family of four(4 and 2 year olds). It is also massive in comparison to the bungalows at the hotels and half the price. The pick up from Nir at the ferry terminal was quick...More

First off, Richard and Nir are the coolest folks I have coordinated with in my travels. Their operation is both laid back and precise. As far as I can tell, you can't get those sunsets at any other bungalows on the island because they are...More

About the neighbourhood
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...
