We stayed at Rande's for six nights and got into complete chill mode here. The property is beautifully landscaped and fenced in for extra privacy and a feeling of complete protection. Rande has thought of everything. Complimentary bikes, snorkels, fins, kayaks and most of all clean and well equipped guesthouses. The property is only a five minute bike ride from...

This was our second stay at Rande's Shack. We spent a week there in 2012 and said we would have to come back to stay longer the next time. We recently returned from a 16 night stay and it was even better than the first time. Rande and Emere have 2 guesthouses on their property where they have their own...

We had such a wonderful time during our first stay in April that we couldn't wait to return. We were lucky enough to be able to stay for a month over Christmas and New Year. Rande and Emere's gracious hospitality ensures a great holiday. We again stayed in the smaller house which is perfect for a couple. The larger house...

Unlike other positive comments we would like to state the following: when requesting availability we received confirmation that we would be notified should anyone else be interested, "don't worry we'll let you know'. Furthermore you are requested to forward a copy of your E-ticket which we didn't have at the time. We offered to pay a deposit to secure the...

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...

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....

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...

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...
