My family and I (all 11 of us) stayed at Hale Kohola for 9 days and we had an amazing time! The pictures are exactly what the house looks like when you arrive.... actually, the house is more beautiful. We had 3 children with us and they loved the pool- we loved it too (and the hot tub)! The house had more than enough space for all of us to be together - but it also had enough space for all of us to be on our own and enjoy the beautiful ocean views and relax. The walk to the beach was about 10 minutes depending if we had the little ones with us or not. When we wanted to get there quick, we would drive and we always found ample parking in the beach park parking lot. The location of the house was awesome... close to everything (grocery store was a 2 minute drive) but far enough away that we felt like were were in our own private oasis. Our greeter, Debbie, was the best! She was available whenever we needed her and she gave great advice on restaurants and golf courses to visit. Booking with Tess and Lynda was a dream.... couldn't have asked for anyone better. If you are looking for a memorable, stress-free and relaxing trip... then you should definitely look into booking the Hale Kohola. You will not be disappointed.
