If you are looking for a little piece of paradise, look no further than the Hale Kai Nani. The house was nicer than the pictures show. It was the perfect size for our party of three adults and three 12 year olds. The house is in a quiet and safe area. Had no problem letting the kids ride their bikes around in the neighborhood. Far removed from the tourist areas, you can get a "laid back" Hawaiian experience. We snorkeled, took surfing lessons, rode bikes, visited Waimea Valley, visited Pearl Harbor and took a helicopter tour of the North Shore. The consensus was that our visit was the best vacation we ever took. The only thing that I would change is to spend two weeks instead of one.
