Guestbook comments from the owner

I can finally write Aloha without feeling like a dork!!



Kerry we had such a wonderful time at your home in Hawaii - how did you ever leave???!! It was a fantastically well appointed space and far exceeded our expectations. I couldn't believe how many towels you had - hehe! It was perfect. The most wonderful experience was showering outdoors - the weirdest most exhilarating experience for people from Canada that are used to being covered 24/7.





I wanna be Hawaiian when I grow up!! All of us were scanning the newspapers to see if we could find jobs there. The locals were fantastic. Just down the street we were taking to the people who owned the market and they heard we were from Canada. Turns out they visited the Rocky Mountains situated 2 hours from where we live! Small world. Can't say enough. about the locals - they were awesome!!



Really weird how some gas stations didn't have bathrooms. Another cool thing was how they served rice at Mcdonalds - being filipino it was very appreciated but odd nonetheless. LOVED LnL Drive Inn - food was fabulous. Favorite beach close to the house was Wamanea Beach (I think I spelled it right.......)



Took some getting used to the pace of life the locals had. I've already referred a couple of people to your house and I strongly discourage people from resorting it in Waikiki - this was definitely the way to go. We will absolutely book you again next time.





Many mahalos!!!

WOW! Great place for families

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to hawaii and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Property was clean and cozy. Beds were comfy. We used the kayak and watched the sunrise each morning from our bed. The kids ran out each morning in pj's to play in their ocean back yard. Cottage neighbors are other residential homes, so location was nice and quiet. We had a wonderful private beach to swim in, gentle enough for the kids. Found a few fish swimming around. It was great. I would highly recommend this place for families. BBQ'd outside once, but got a bit too windy in the evening to use the fire pit. Locals told us summer winds are much calmer. Overall really great experience.

Home (paradise really) Away from Home :)

  • 5 of 5
This vacation home away from home is exactly that... It provided us with all the neccessary things we needed. The home was tranquil and peaceful. The air conditioned rooms kept the rest of the home cool and comfortable. Having a washer and dryer also made a huge difference for us. Beach Views and Mountain Views surrounding the home makes for a very Special place:-) Waking up at 5:45 every morning to watch the Sunrise was one of our favorite things to do. It was perfect! The beach was great!!! Very private with the exception of a few locals walking their dinner off. I don't know how to swim so water scares me, but this beach was the most amazing beach I have ever gone to. I was able to literally walk like a quarter of a mile into the ocean. It was awesome!!! Make sure to wear a pair of water shoes though. It's a bit rocky so the shoes will help a great deal. It was also great having the Kayak and paddle board. Our group had the time of our lives in the water.
Make sure to check the pantry and drawers before you go out and start buying things you think you may need. This house is very much equipped with everything. There was even a brand new can of OFF spray that I found and of course replaced.
It is not perfectly painted outside due to the weather and the bath room tub does need some work so this house is not perfect, but it was perfect for us... If you are looking for a perfect family vacation home, This is it!
Kerry the owner was easy to work with. He was kind and was very considerate.
There is a Longs and 7-11 like 8 minutes away by car. The Mormon Temple was so beautiful and the BYU University campus was only like 10 min away.

Thank you so much Kerry. I'm sure we will be back:) Aloha and Mahalo

Best Vacation Choice for Our Family!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here as a family of five. It was really everything we needed. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Pros:
Double kayak, snorkel gear and fins, reef shoes, boogie boards, some broken ish but still fun surf boards, beach umbrella, sand toys,outdoor shower, small charcoal grill, tons of towels... Everything!

Beds were comfortable. Pillows are queen sized which is awesome. There are plenty of linens. A/C is the bedrooms works perfectly.

Beach is perfect. Soft sand. Water is pretty calm too. Great for kids! Good snorkeling right off the back of the house. Lots of colorful fish and even sea turtles.

Good kitchen. Stocked. Happy for the coffee maker with re useable filter. Be aware that there is no dishwasher. Not a big deal to us as we brought our kids and therefore still had dishwashers.

Nice new Washer and dryer. A vacuum ( you will be happy to see this as the sand will show up everywhere no matter how hard you try)

Cons:
really not many. Let's see... I wish the blinds weren't those awful broke down 90s blinds. And the couches were pretty crazy uncomfortable, not that you will be sitting much. And that super cute blue room could maybe use a few light blankets. Oh and we never found the dustpan. Like I said not many cons just teeny things.

Yeah the house shows some wear but as people who lived near the ocean for years I can tell you it is harsh on wood! This is just a normal beach house thing.

Tips:

-Grocery stores-Tamara's (right beside the Longs drugs) just down the road has much better prices than Foodland in Laie. Better still hit Costco on your way out of the airport. Cheapest gifts too.

-If you blow a fuse there is a fuse panel in the blue room behind the door behind a picture.

-There is a shave ice shack about 7 houses up that, when open, is the best. Run by the sweetest lady who will tell you anything you need to know about the area. We walked the beach to get it.

Area:
best place on the island! Far from Honolulu which is exactly what we wanted but it still took us less than an hour to get to Pearl Harbor. It quiet and safe and the people that are around are nice. Right off Kamehameha Hwy.

The town of Laie (nearby) is pretty much shut down on Sunday due to its Mormon roots. Not a big deal though as we found the better, closer, Tamara's for groceries.

Thank you for this awesome place and the memories.

So let me start by saying that if you are looking for a beautiful beach right in your backyard this is it. The property is beautiful and private. Me and my wife and 3 young children had a great time playing outside and enjoying the ocean. Hard to find a place like this for the price. It was very calm water and plenty of sandy beach for the little ones. That said the house was not everything we would've wanted it to be upon our arrival it was not properly cleaned. The owner was very quick to remedy the problem but I would've expected him to have at least sent us out to dinner or something to make up for the inconvenience. We had to leave the property for several hours while the house was cleaned. After the cleaning the house was much more enjoyable but still did feel a bit run-down in certain areas. Overall we enjoyed our stay and after speaking with the owner I believe many of these issues will be remedied. This property is off the beaten path and perfect if you want to be left alone and enjoy the beach!

Nice beachfront getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect place for those that want to get away from the crowds! The beach had maybe 5 people walking through a day, so it was easy to think it really was an exclusive beach. The home was well stocked and we wanted for nothing. The only down side was the dryer was not working, but I believe that was replaced by now. The sea kayak and beach toys, surf and boogie boards were a hit with my kids. If you want to spend a lot of time in Honolulu/Waikiki, get somewhere closer as it is a 45 min drive or so. But that's kind of the point. :)

great home, away from home

  • 5 of 5
We just got back a few days ago, and you know it was good when during the last few days you start hearing "anyway we can stay longer" first, property managers Tony, pascall and Family are wonderfull, and very helpful. The house is great with lots of big windows to enjoy the ocean even when sitting in the house. beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked, backyard and beach was great and almost felt like a private beach, communication and transaction with owners was timely and smooth,. location was great for us no wakiki or condo crowd. We had a small wedding in the backyard and it could not have been better with the beach, a coconut tree, and a cool hawaiian breez for a background, in all, it was a wonderfull vacation and I would recommend this property to others and stay here again in a heartbeat, in fact i hope to do so in the future.
