I just finished a crazy chaotic week with a very large extended family, coordinating a weeklong trip with family and friends and multi-generations (grandparents to young ones)... and this house was the much needed break away from the 'strip' rush that my family needed. My parents (one 75 one 82) felt spoiled by the truly breathtaking views and comfort, while my little nieces loved all the things to do there! Amenities were stocked and we felt so well taken care of and spoiled in this beautiful, well kept house. Never got a chance to pull out the kick-arse webber bbq, but we spent quite a few nights just enjoying the peace out on the linai, even hosting a dinner party one night (something you could NEVER do at a hotel), and making it the base ground for getting ready for our wedding! There is golfing and snorkeling equipment available too (both which we were planning on using but plans changed) - but as there's no true storage on the main floor, you just have to ask the owners in advance to bring it up for you from the basement.
Lara and Glen were so kind and hospital - always making sure we had everything we needed - even dropped by to congratulate us (who were running late). We took them up on some local food recommendations down the street and had the BEST poke and Italian experience. Hawaii has now become my family's favorite vacation spot, and I would definitely recommend any and all their properties.
Lara and Glen - thank you for making this such an enjoyable trip for my family, and for making it an even more special wedding day... I was able to run around and get everything ready knowing my family was happy there. And it was a blessing in disguise being on top of a hill - saved us a lot of $$ with the limo who told us last minute they couldn't get up the hill to get me!
Thank-you so very much for sharing your beautiful home and having so much aloha.
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Esther and Darryl
