The bedroom is airy and has a beautiful view of the yard, valley and mountains. We always guarantee, fresh, clean linens; and covers for all beds, couch, bathroom and throughout the house. Downstairs in the living area there is a comfy couch that also serves as a single bed (has a single bed mattress), and a stereo with ipod cord.

Smith, my husband, and I met at a surf shop in Oahu, Hawaii; although he was born and raised in Huahine. We decided to return to his native Huahine to renovate, refurbish and bring his land and homes back to life. After working five long years we are able to see the dream of Franky's Fare completed, but are always improving. Our own house, next door, is a work in progress; as we love to work on our houses and yard. But, when the surf is up, we spend time with/by the ocean. My husband's passion is surfing and painting; mine is Tahitian dance; the beach and SUP. Our lives revolve around the ocean with swimming, surfing, outrigger canoeing, fishing, stand-up, kayaking, snorkelling or just chilling on the white sand beaches. Everyday is a wonderful day for adventure or just chilling out on Huahine: rain or shine. The airport shuttle from and back to the airport is 1500 xpf. We will pick you up and take you to the beaches and through town to give you a run-down for your visit. If you are arriving by boat between the hours of 10:00 pm and 6:00 am there will be a charge of 2000xpf. We live next door to Franky's and are available 24 hours a day for help or information.
Franky's is located on a private, family road; surrounded by Tahitian culture. The road is not paved and is a bit rugged but it is lined with tropical foliage. It is also located in a beautiful valley with the tallest mountain on the island, Turi watching over. You will hear the sounds of dogs, chickens, cows, roosters and music as you travel only ten houses from the main town of fare and all the best white-sand beaches on Huahine. If you travel up the other end of the road; you can hike up into the mountains if that is an activity you enjoy. Because Fare is located on a large lagoon there are many activities like snorkelling, kayaking, swimming, SUP, sun bathing, boating, fishing, etc, just 150 meters away from Franky's. There is a museum a few kilometers away with ancient maraes and ruins leading up to another popular hiking trail. The rhythm of the island is very laid back; early to bed and early to rise. There is a market with local goods; fruits, vegetables, etc, that opens at first light on the main road in Fare...again just 150 meters from Franky's. Guests like to pick up a fresh french baguette and fresh goods in the morning, come home, and enjoy breakfast on the patio.
