All of the praise in the other reviews is well-deserved. Rande & Emere are very helpful & welcoming without being intrusive. The location can't be beat--one minute (slow) walk to the beach & snorkeling; 5 minute bike ride into town & the market/restaurants/roullotes; great views; lots of fishies to look at. The bungalow is good size, with full kitchen, bath,... More

I had booked with Rande and Emere after a referral from a long time FP visitor. I had planned to spend a few days each on a number of islands (Tahiti, Morea, Huahine, Bora Bora and Gambier Islands) after the completion of 5-6 weeks in the Pacific which included New Zealand and Pitcairn Island. Prior to arriving on at Rande’s... More

Although we did not get to stay at Rande's, we went to check it out because we were interested for next time. Rande welcomed us, showed us around the property and was very kind. I would recommend it, very clean, spacious, beautiful setting and right on the best beach for snorkelling. Rande is a great guy, he speaks English (... More

We only stayed 3 nights with Rande, Emere and Boy, but we fell in love. They were the nicest hosts, our Bungalow was Cozy, clean and just beautiful. The location directly at the Beach was wunderful. Even we are not the biggest dog-Fans, we loved Boy, the lovely and friendly dog who was watching for us at night. Thanks Rande... More

My boyfriend Joel and I were fortunate enough to find Randes Shack, this was one of the highlights of the many places we have visited over the years. The location for those who want quiet serene beauty with the best surfing and snorkelling it is perfect. This was my first experience at snorkelling so the location was very important to... More

My wife and I spent a week there at the end of November and it was pure ecstasy! First, perfect setting in front of the lagoon (the best sunsets in the world!), fantastic owners (Big kisses to Rande and Emere XXX...), clean & well equipped bungalow (nothing luxurious but just perfect, with mosquito nets around the windows, which is difficult...

Cant say enough good things - literally - about Rande and Emir and their place. Friendly and warm welcome, ready and able to help us to make the most our 3 days on Huahine. Excellent accommodations, like having our own house or apartment on the island. Nice snorkeling in the lagoon within spitting distance (metaphorically), tightly screened to keep out... More

Having stayed at Randes Shack first in May 2013, we knew we wanted to come back again. (see my first review under AUTSFDTF) We were lucky enough to spend another week with them in October 2013. This property and the owners, Rande and Emere, are exactly as previous reviewers have described. Just an awesome place to relax and clear your... More

My husband and I stayed here in mid-September whilst on honeymoon. We wanted something slightly alternative from the plush hotel setting, as we both prefer to get a little more into the culture of somewhere we visit. Rande's was perfect for this. Accommodation was perfect - secluded, giving us enough honeymoon privacy, spotless and very well thought through with everything... More

Like the title says, I was next door but after seeing Rande's and meeting him I wished I stayed there; May 2013. I love snorkeling and sunsets. Rande's has both. The reef was beautiful and not very deep. I was there when the ocean was unusually strong. No problem snorkeling. Walk along the shore to the right a few hundred... More
