Our single story air conditioned home is on the beach! Cross the lawn, walk down a few steps and you are on a beautiful white sandy beach with calm turquoise blue waters to dive into. It's a great property for families with young children and doting grandparents. The covered patio has a gas grill, sink and huge picnic bench, every thing you need to create and an outdoor meal for your family. We make it easy for you to enjoy the ocean by providing a two man kayak, boogie boards, fishing supplies, snorkels and masks, beach chairs and beach toys. This lush tropical rural area is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. If you are looking for a place to relax, slow down and unwind come visit, stay and soak in the beauty on the beach!
This house was perfect for the three families that it hosted for a 9 day vacation. The directions were spot on and the view did not disappoint when we arrived. The kids enjoyed the kayak that was provided day in and day out, seems like that's all they did when we were at the house. Like many others have said, Lisa was great and helped us out with all of our needs. We have already referred other family and friends to this house. It was also nice to read the entries in the visitor book from others that have rented the home in the past, it was full but we purchased a new one and left it on the shelf so the next visitors can add their experiences as well. Thank you again Lisa.
Again, the reviews are absolutely correct! The house was clean and well kept, with the beach a matter of steps away. We were in Hawaii for our son's wedding, and were able to bring our other children and grandchildren. The house was perfect for everyone, giving each the space they needed. The beach, while not private, is close to it. Grandchildren played safely on the beach and surf, right in front of the house. We were able to host a bar-b-que, inviting the bride's family from Asia. What a wonderful time! It provided the right setting to get to know our family from across the sea. The owner even changed the schedule for the gardener to give us uninterrupted time for the get-together (Thank You Again). As this was our first time with VRBO, the only concern we had was a bit of a delay in hearing back from the owner (not extreme, we're just from the caffeine-infused Northwest...). Also be aware, as the owner talks about in the instructions, there can be jelly-fish. One in our party did get stung, but no problems...followed the owner's instructions to use vinegar and the sting went away after a while (left a little temporary tattoo).
Location is away from the hustle of Honolulu, which was perfect. It gave a real flavor of the Island, with small stores, food trucks, North Shore, fruit stands, and the Polynesian Cultural Center very close by. A special word for the Polynesian Cultural Center, about 15 minutes away. Definitely worth the time and cost to experience it!
This was our first experience with VRBO, but won't be our last, if this is an example of what to expect! Nobody wanted to leave! And everyone is starting to make plans to come back to the house again! Nothing bad to say about it at all. It provided the foundation for a perfect vacation. Thank you again Lisa!
Our stay was very good! The house had everything you could ask for. Great space and beautiful views. Thanks for accommodating my family😊
We had a wonderful vacation staying in this amazing house situated right on the beach. There were 9 adults, 1 toddler and 2 babies and there was plenty of room for all of us. The outdoor space is perfect for all ages, the swimming is great, there is a large lawn area big enough for all of us to enjoy. We had fun with kayak and the fishing rods provided, as well as the boogie boards and the sand toys for the toddler. The bedrooms were a good size, and there was room in the master bedroom closet for the pack n play for the baby. The air conditioning was an added bonus. The location is perfect if you want to be away from the rush of Honolulu, there's a grocery store nearby, the cultural center is close and it's a nice drive to the North shore. The owner was delightful to deal with and answered all my questions promptly. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a lovely, relaxing vacation.
All descriptions are accurate and we really enjoyed fishing and snorkeling off the kayak n the reefs just offshore...was nice sleeping to the sound of ocean waves the first few nights! We will be back!
We loved staying in this house for our family vacation. The beach is exceptional with fine sand that the kids loved playing in. The beach area is even better than we expected from the photos & reviews. (A reasonably small amount of debris washed up with the tide, however a rake was provided and it only took a few minutes to rake it up). We liked having 5 bedrooms to give each couple their own space, and we made use of the portable crib and air mattress for the preschoolers. Each bedroom has its own AC unit which was great for us since some of us are used to cooler temperatures at night, and some are not. Like others, we also appreciated the kayak and other beach toys. With the little ones we all appreciated the yard and patio area separated from the beach by a rock wall to give the little ones a boundary. The the lawn chairs were great for relaxing while keeping close watch.
The house was spotless when we arrived. We had just one issue that came up, and when we contacted the owner (Lisa), she was very responsive and the issue was resolved the same day.
The one thing we didn't realize is that while the house appears to be walking distance to the town (about 2 miles away) the highway is not very conducive to walking. My husband and I walked to the drugstore one afternoon and while there seems to be enough space to walk & safely stay out of the traffic on one side of the road for most of the way, unfortunately the shoulder narrows or parked cars require walking in the roadway and there is no pedestrian bridge for one of the bridges crossing the water ways. We did enjoy our walk, but were very cautious about waiting for the traffic to clear before walking on the roadway.
Over all this was a great experience for our first time VBRO, and I would highly recommend this house.
This beachfront home is located on the north shores of Oahu. Approximately 45 minutes from the Honolulu International Airport, our home is between the little towns of Punaluu and Hauula. Surrounding attractions include Kualoa Ranch for horseback riding, ATV rentals, and movie scene tours or the world famous Polynesian Cutural Center where luaus, shows and exhibits can be experienced by one and all. Farther north are the well known beaches for surf competitions and the quaint town of Haleiwa where shops, art galleries and restaurants can fill your day.
