Great house, great location, great owner.
The house itself is very high end, super finish, everything was wonderful from the layout to the furniture to the baths and even the mattresses and linens.
Just a ~2 block walk to the surf, and half a mile to Sunset Beach, one of the best in the world. You'll need watershoes, and you shouldn't expect lifeguards or showers, etc., but if you want unspoiled beach you're in the right place. And yes it's far from Honolulu... Which may be a drawback to some but will be a feature to others. Google it to be sure; this is about as away-from-it-all as you can get on Oahu. Perfect for us.
Finally, the owner - Joe - was friendly, communicative and responsive from start to finish. There were gifts when we arrived, a call to make sure we'd settled in OK; everything above and beyond.
We're experienced VRBO renters. Hale Pa'ani is as good as it gets.
