“Best place in Huahine to stay”
Reviewed 28 January 2018 for a stay in September 2017

This place is amazing with everything you need, as well as great hosts! Jocelyn picked us up at the airport, showed us the town and recommended what should we do during the stay. The bungalow is very big and beautiful, and it comes with big garden. There are bikes you can take into town, which is located just a few minutes away. Jocelyn and Smith are wonderful and we will certainly come back.

“Great place”
Reviewed 29 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Franky's Fare is a really nice place to stay if you want a relaxing and affordable holiday! The lovely owners, Jocelyn and Smith, pick you up at the airport, show you around town before taking you to the bungalow, which is located in a beautiful tropical garden right next to the owner's home.
The bungalow is big and have everything you need except air condition. The stairs to get up to the bedroom are also really steep.
Bikes are included which is really good to get to town and the beach, but it's also possible to walk. The road to town is really bumby though.
If you stay here and rent a car at Europcar you get a really good discount!

There aren't many restaurants in town, but the supermarket is huge for French Polynesia, which makes it easy to cook.

“Fantastic bungalow in lush garden”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Franky's Fare is the perfect place to stay in Fare/Huahine. Jocelyn and Smith are wonderful hosts that will take every possible care of you. The bungalow is spacious, welcoming and fully equipped and in a lush tropical valley, a 3-minute-bike ride from the center where you will find the super market, les roulottes and the highly recommendable Huahine Yacht Club. Bikes are for free. The beach is 5 minutes by bike and about the only sand beach on Huahine. Jocelyn will book all the excursions for you and give you plenty of information on the island. It was a wonderful stay - GO THERE!

“Special place”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Franky's is one those rare special places which you actually can call a home, especially if you are lucky to have booked it for longer stay. No superlatives or clichés are misplaced here, friendly hosts really go that extra mile to ensure you are content. House is lovely and fitted with all you need, - or need a micro screwdriver for camera, external DVD-drive for laptop, Jocelyn and Smith wizardly make them materialize...
Don't miss, book early, Franky's is very popular for all the right reasons.

“Amazing hosts, spacious house with everything we needed and within a bike ride or walk to town and the beach.”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Joceyln and Smith were amazing hosts. They live in the house next door and checked on us every day to see if we needed anything. They were not in any way intrusive, just exremely accommodating and helpful with tips on which restaurants/roulettes to go to and which not to. Jocelyn gave us a quick tour on the day we arrived so we knew exactly where everything was and how to get there. They provided bikes for my partner, son and myself to use which was very helpful when exploring the island and heading into town for meals etc. It was unfortunately raining for most of the time we were there but this wasn't too much of a problem as Jocelyn downloaded heaps of movies for us to watch and the house was large enough that we didn't get 'cabin fever' too badly! Smith also gave us a tour of the whole island on our last day there. Because of the weather, it was great to be able to go exploring with him in his 4 wheel drive.
We would highly rate this accommodation in Huahine and we think it was far better than some of the other places we stayed and payed quadruple the price! If we ever go back to Huahine, this is definitely where we will stay.

Franky's went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. We were well informed about island attractions and activities, the service they provide is five star in the hospitality rating. Aloha guys thanks so much!

person found this review helpful

We loved staying at Franky Fare for 2 weeks during a visit to Fare, Huahine. My son was 9 years old then and we enjoyed our time with Jocelyn and Smith the hosts as they were always helping us feel at home. We rode bikes from the house to the beach and often had the dog follow us to our daily swims. Smith's family basically owns the whole street so there is no safer place to be.
