Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a wonderful stay. As usual the weather was great, but it was still nice to have a comfortable "Home Base" to return to. Our whole extended family will have many treasured moments from this vacation.

Thanks also for all the help in guiding us where & what to do. We alway found enough to do to tire us out each night.

The house was very comfortable and the view was great!

Thanks again - Go Buckeyes!!

The perfect place for your morning cup of coffee - or your 4:00 p.m. glass of wine - the Lanai

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 had a wonderful time. The large lanai was where we all met for morning coffee. Such a view. The grandkids loved the pool. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the dining room table held all 10 of us. Perfect location - close to Front Street. And then the lanai was again where we met for our afternoon drinks. A perfect week.

couldn't ask for anything more

Beautiful ocean view with a lanai big enough for all of us for breakfast or sunset. Clean, spacious and obviously well cared for. Made use of the pool and grill after a hard day of vacationing. Welcome fruit basket when we arrived and fresh bakery the next morning were nice touches. Would love to stay here again and highly recommend.

This property is beautifully situated in a residential area of Lahina 2 1/2 blocks from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our children and grandchildren, 3 families in all, to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. The house is large and the six adults and two children had plenty of room to relax both alone and together. The view of the ocean is wonderful from the deck and the beach is handy on foot or by car. The kitchen is well equipped and meals can be enjoyed at the large inside or the deck table. The private pool and hot tub with attractive landscaping were great for the kids and adults as well. Everyone had a great time.

Karen, on site manager, was efficient and welcoming. She gave us a great orientation and stopped by from time to time with helpful information.

The privacy and the quiet of this location makes it particularly attractive. The beach is convenient for the local neighborhood. We enjoyed its low key atmosphere.

Home accommodated our large group of 12 nicely. Enough space for sharing and privacy.

  • 4 of 5

All of our needs were met. A little warm in the main living area of the home but AC in other areas. Good central location.

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 women traveling to Hawaii for the first time. We could not have asked for a better host or better place to stay. Jim was always so kind and helpful and our accommodations were lovely. We rented the entire place so we had access to everything, including the big kitchen, barbecue pits, and wonderful pool. This was a huge place and very easy to get to. We actually walked to the Walgreens and one of the beaches going through the neighborhood. Great place to stay!
