Life on the lanai
The house was as advertised, nice, clean and well-stocked. The grocery shopping was nearby and the owner friendly and responsive. But the best part was the huge lanai right on the ocean with a bar, hot tub and plenty of seating where the four of us spent most of our free time looking out at the ocean and the occasional seal. Would recommend...
Awesome Place...Awesome Time
The Beach House in Paradise was breathtaking...everything we wanted and more! The lower level was so comfy. We walked in and felt right at home immediately. The views off the terrace were amazing. Being able to walk the beach and listen to the waves hitting the shore....nothing could be more relaxing. We enjoyed kicking back on the patio and taking a dip in the hot tub too. We have so many wonderful memories of our stay in Oahu. Mahalo Shawn and Jessica for sharing your paradise with us.

Amazing Family Vacation!!!!
My family of 4, 2 boys, had the most amazing time at your place in Hawaii!! Everything you could ever want was in this unit, we just picked up some food to eat while staying at home. The beds were comfortable, the furnishings were nice and the place was nicely decorated!! Very clean and comfortable home to kick back and go swimming in the beautiful ocean water just steps from your door! My husband and kids all loved this place and want to come back!! I loved everything about this place and definitely will be back, I have no desire to look into any other place on the island!! I loved Hau'ula, nice laid back town, not super busy or touristy! Plenty of places to eat, shop, and things to do within 10 minutes of driving, no need to go to the big city with all of the traffic. Jessica and Shawn gave us plenty of privacy, I met Jessica on our last night there, she was extremely kind and caring! They went above and beyond with their hospitality and caring hearts for us and we will always appreciate and never forget that about them!!! Shawn was very kind and flexible with us when I booked the upper unit and later saw the lower unit he let me change that so we could have the extra space!! Thank you for sharing your amazing place with us, we will be back!!! Mahalo
This Really Is Paradise!
My family of four stayed here for a week and honestly the only bad part was leaving! The house had everything we needed and more...we wished we had seen what was in the kitchen before we grocery shopped. The location was perfect...five minutes to the Polynesian Cultural Center which we really enjoyed (went two days) 5 - 10 minutes to the grocery and many restaurants. If you feel the need to leave your own private beach, there are loads of beautiful beaches within 20 minutes, Hale'iwa (with loads of north shore shopping was about 30-40 minutes away and Waikiki was a little over an hour away.
There was another family in the upstairs unit, but we barely saw them. It seemed one of us was gone exploring each day. And the owners were off island but Trudy (Shawn's MIL) was house sitting and she was wonderful. We really only saw her in the morning as she cleaned and straightened up, but she was a pleasure to talk to!
I did loads of research on other properties in the area. We struggled with committing because of the no refunds policy, but I've gotta say we picked the perfect house! We wouldn't look anywhere else if we were returning to Oahu!
Hau'ula and the surrounding area is often likened to 'old Hawaii,' still representing what Hawaii once was. Instead of large malls and chain restaurants (i.e. Waikiki), the area has family-owned gift shops, unique little restaurants, and a pace of life that many envision when planning their Hawaii trips.
Highlights of the area:
(1) five minute drive to the Polynesian Cultural Center, Hawaii's #1 tourist attraction
(2) many great hikes (some with waterfalls) in the mountains seen in our aerial pictures
(3) lush green foliage and mountainsides, drawing comparisons with Maui
(4) good, local people offering a glimpse into 'true' Hawaii living: a truly authentic Hawaiian experience
(5) twelve minute drive to Turtle Bay Resort, and their golf courses, restaurants, bars, massages, helicopter rides, etc.
(6) minutes to good surfing spots, and only about 20 minutes to famous big-wave spots like Pipeline and Sunset Beach
(7) quiet, tranquil, peaceful...the best way to describe Hau'ula!
Other Activities: kayaking, boogie boarding, beachcombing, shelling, horseshoes
