We had a great 6 night stay. The house was spotless and had everything we needed. The location is really good and peaceful. The complimentary bikes are handy and it takes about 5 mins to ride into the main village Fare. If you don't feel like cooking or going into Fare for dinner, there is a roulotte Pizza Italia a...

We have been traveling for nearly a year and this is (shamefully) one of my first reviews on TA. Felt compelled to do so for Randes shack - despite wishing to keep it as a hidden secret all to myself! We have enjoyed many of the places we travelled to but this one really had us wishing we could change... More

This property is gorgeous. Small beach w snorkeling in front. Cool waterfront shack with hammock and chairs to watch the sunsets. Awesome hosts ready to help and advise with anything to improve your vacation. Friendly dogs that keep strangers out, but never ever acted threatening. The dogs are clean and friendly as can be. They were my buddies after one... More

We stayed here 5 nights. It was so amazing that you really could see all those fish (including "nemo") just svimming from Rande's shore. The bungalow was a little house. Rande was very protective about the mosquitoscreens in the bungalow. Maybe a bit to much, when it should be kid-friendly.

I stayed at Rande's Shack for a week while visiting Huahine. The island is fantastic, maybe the best in French Polynesia if you are looking to experience a slice of local culture and life in addition to experiencing some of the beautiful postcard beaches and transparent waters. Unlike many of the other islands in FP, Huahine only has a few... More

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
