THE GINGER HALE, FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
Just back in Norway after a fantastic 9 days stay at the Ginger Hale. We were 5 people, myself, my daughter, her husband and their two children, age 5 and 9. I travelled from Norway and they living in Austin, Texas.
We were met by Steve's friend and she gave us the most excellent and helpful welcome. There was also a gift basket filled with Hawaiian goodies on the dining table that we enjoyed.

We rented a car at the airport and had a wonderful first impression of Oahu driving to Kailua. Spectacular views on the way and really impressed arriving at Ginger Hale. Talk about beachfront! You are not able to get closer without living on the beach, which you will feel you are!
The house was everything we had dreamed about, Nothing was lacking and we enjoyed meals inside as well as outside.
Staying as close to the beach as Ginger Hale allows you the full day at the beach/in the water/walking the beach without losing any time whatsoever traveling and everyone enjoyed every minute every day. The two kids want to go back already.
Kailua center had all we needed within minutes, just as described so well in the House Manual that was provided. You really do not have to go anywhere but here if you do not have a car.

While I went to different Golf Courses every day the rest enjoyed the beach and all the different activities possible with equipment provided at the house. My granddaughter and grandson "lived" in the water and especially loved the Bodyboards supplied at the house.
Mom and dad could enjoy the beach and relax. The house so close to the beach allowed the kids access without the parents guidance.
All the information from the House Manual helped, from shopping, suggested restaurants to Golf Courses close to Kailua. Hard to find as many Great Golf Courses within short distances any place in the world as you will find on Oahu. Enjoy!

We also drove around the island one day and took in some of the spectacular sites that Oahu let you experience. Well worth the drive.

We really would love to come back to Ginger Hale in the future, should the opportunity be there. Thanks from all of us to you for letting us get this experience!

GINGER HALE AND KAILUA BOTH 5 STARS!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Ginger Hale. The house is warm, comfortable and stocked with everything needed for a great vacation stay. The private backyard and access to the beach (just steps away - literally from grass to sand!) is picture postcard fantasyland stuff that will easily exceed your expectations.

Our stay lasted a week but we shuttled from the airport and did a local Kailua Enterprise car rental (weekend special $10/day!). Here again Ginger Hale comes through as the town (with great restaurants, shopping and a Whole Foods market) is an easy 10 min walk away.

We can't say enough about Ginger Hale and the Kailua/Lanikai area. Our next trip out can't come soon enough and anything less that the experience we had at GH is just not going to be good enough. The highest possible standard has been set by Steve the owner and his amazing Ginger Hale property. Thanks again Steve!!

WHEN YOU AND YOUR FAMILY REALLY NEED A VACATION....THE GINGER HALE WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!!!

  • 5 of 5
Just home from an incredible 10 days at the Ginger Hale beachfront home in our favorite town of Kailua!!! When I close my eyes at night, I can imagine that I still hear the crashing of the waves and a sense of well being washes over me as I drift off to sleep.
You could not find a more beautiful property in such an ideal location as the Ginger Hale! Just a few steps from the lush yard and you are on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From the 3 miles of beach you can enjoy the intense beauty of the water and the surrounding mountains and watch the kite surfers dazzle you as their colorful sails glide accross the ocean. If you can pry yourself away from all of that there are many sites to see just a short drive away. We enjoyed the catamaran on Waikiki beach, the Dole plantation, and Waiamaia Falls on the north shore. If it is shopping you enjoy then Kailua will not disappoint! One of my favorite memories is having lunch in Kailua with my granddaughter then spending a few hours exploring all the fun shops and being able to amble on home. With my 8 year old granddaughter it is about a 10 - 15 minute walk...but that is carrying all our packages and sipping a cool drink! If you are looking for a dream vacation look no farther, this is it!!! Steve, the owner was at the house to greet us upon arrival surprising us with a beautiful gift basket of goodies for us to enjoy. He could not have been nicer as he gave us a tour of the home. I really feel blesssed to have found this property and to have given our family these wonderful memories. In my wildest dreams this could not have been any better and it was so needed!!! Thank you Steve from the bottom of my heart!!!

THE SECRET IS OUT

  • 5 of 5
My wife, son and I just completed an 8 day vacation in June at The Ginger Hale. My only regret is that in writing this review and sharing it with other readers, I am letting everyone in on our secret on how amazing this beachfront home is and I will not be able to return because it will be booked. The pictures and description of the property do not begin to convey Ginger Hale's unique qualities. First of all, the home literally fronts beautiful Kailua beach. It has stunning ocean views from the main rooms including the living room, dining room, master bedroom, master bath and kitchen. The home has 2 beautifully manicured lawns one that borders the ocean on one side and the other on a private peaceful secluded courtyard. This beautifully decorated home is comfortable, we maintained and easily accomodates multiple couples or a large family. There is a terrific collection of books in the home as well as stereo and DVD/TV and wireless for those who must be connected to the outside world. The ktichen has all essential appliances and equipment and is ready for preparing any meal should you choose. Besides being a beachfront property, Ginger Hale is in a terrific location for walking or driving to the main center of Kailua where there are ample choices for restaurants and shops.

The owner, Steve has been wonderful throughout the entire rental process. He provided essential information on our arrival by having a friend greet us and explain the home to us, outline nearby activities and give us best tips for restaurants etc. Steve has an amazing "How-to"" manual on the home which is practical, helpful and answered every question possible. To add icing to the cake, there was even a basket of Hawaiian goodies waiting to greet us on our arrival.

As for Kailua itself, what a terrific place for a beach trip. This gorgeous beach is stunning and is non motorized so you can truly enjoy the ocean, and all activities related to it with no unpleasant sounds . There is surfing, bodyboarding, swimming, kayaking and so much more. Kailua has terrific restaurant choices non of which disappointed. There are multiple grocery stores within 5 minutes of the home including a beautiful Whole foods store.

I would easily recommend this property to any close friend or relative, In sum, Ginger Hale is a gem and my family and I would return there in a heartbeat. We cannot say enough about it!!

GREAT FAMILY STAY, EXCELLENT PRICE, FABULOUS LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (3 adult couples) were Ginger Hale's first guests and our stay was absolutely wonderful. The description of the property was accurate and the pictures do not do it justice. The home was very spacious and location was excellent - right on the beach but with a nice hedge to provide privacy and within walking distance to town and Kalapawai Market to pick up a quick sandwich and coffee. The price was also hard to beat for beach front. Property was clean and well maintained and we were met by owner Steve, his friend (who was a holiday rental agent) and a welcome basket. We were provided with a very in depth overview of the house as well as nearby activities, maps, attractions and restaurants and all our questions were answered. The kitchen was well equipped and Steve was very accommodating and even got us a kettle at our request!
