It was our first trip with the entire family (kids, spouses and grand kids) and the house was perfect! It is so open and beautiful. Our grown children were amazed when they arrived and thought it was more beautiful and open than the pictures showed. My 10 year old grand daughter said she was never leaving and wanted to live there! So much open living space and we spent most of our time on the wonderful lanai. Loved having the security of a locked gate and wall around the property so we never had to worry about the little ones. We slept with all the doors open. Kids spent a lot of time in the yard trying to catch lizards! It is a long way into Honolulu, if that's where you want to be, but we just enjoy being out in the country. The beach right in front is rocky but short walk to beautiful sandy beach. Two minute walk to beach each evening with a bottle of wine for sunsets. It doesn't get much better than that!
