Best Beach Front in Oahu
This was our best vacation yet. We went to most all the beaches in the area and there was none better than in front of this house. The view is awesome! There were flowers blooming all over the island. Take a drive and see mountains or many different beaches (the sand is different on each beach. Not a lot of shells but plenty coral). There is plenty to do very close to the house. The Polynesian Culture Center is a couple of miles from you. (If I had it to do over I wouldn't take a tour but strike out on my own. Dinner and the show was worth it.) We went to the Hukilau Cafe (Man vs Food) for burgers. There is a water fall nearby with many exotic plants and flowers. The famous Bonsai Pipeline and Sunset Beaches are close too. We went out several times, but enjoyed the house and the beach more. The house was very clean and comfortable but the kitchen and baths are dated. But, that didn't get in the way of the overall comfort of the house. The large sofa against the wall is no longer there nor the benches in the bedrooms. Other than those few things it looks just like the pictures. Two outside showers with hot water made it perfect for sand removal coming from the beach. There is a small, very private, lush yard. The house has an old cottage feel, which was just right for us. The sunrise is something to behold from the upstairs bedroom balcony and the way I spend most my mornings taking photos. Just a few steps along a hidden path is the beach and morning coffee taste extra special there. The beds were very comfortable with air conditioning in each bedroom. I was a little worried about no air conditioning in the main part of the house, but it wasn't a problem at all. Two large ceiling fans and the trade winds keep you cool. A grocery store is minutes from you with reasonable prices. Fresh corn and be bought on the roadside. You must try some of the Dole pineapples. Yummy. My husband, son, sister and her friend all said they had a great time. My sister has thanked me way more times than she should for taking her to this beautiful island. We have been to a lot of beaches in the US and in other countries, but this beach is breathtaking. Would I stay at this house again? ABSOLUTELY!!!
