I read ll the reviews and thought they cant all be true!!! Well They are, so much so that I feel compelled to add another review. Rande made us feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The setting is stunning, the snorkelling amazing, the surfing to die for. We stayed in the bigger unit, it was clean, well mousie... More

We initially stayed 9 nights with Rande and Emere and were lucky enough to be able to change our plans to stay another 6 (we could have stayed forever!). Very comfortable, friendly place with direct access to fantastic snorkeling. The lagoon is pristine and crystal clear. The shack overlooks the lagoon towards Raiatea, Taha'a and Bora Bora making for very... More

Rande and Erme have 2 cottages on their property. Clean and spacious. Great covered porch. Washing machine. Plenty of towels. Some basics already in fridge and shelves and the grocery in Fare is truly amazing. We stayed 4 nights. During heat waves you have to stay cool by showering frequently. Ceiling fans are not large enough to push air around.... More

Rande's place is on the beach with good snorkeling and really good sunsets. Our house was 60 seconds from the beach. The grounds were very well kept with lots of seasonal fruits. The houses were very clean with screen's on the windows and doors. Rande is very knowledgable and helpful. It's about 15 minutes to town if you walk and... More

We spent two nights here on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Rande and his wife were very friendly and helpful. The 'shack' was neat and tidy with everything we needed to prepare meals. Snorkeling off the beach (only a few meters away) was really great, with yellow clown fish and anemones. We wish we could have stayed longer!

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

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
