This house is mere steps away from the best beach on the island, maybe in all of Hawaii. Our third time staying here, can't wait to get back. The BBQ is a huge bonus, we were able to cook up some tasty dinners and enjoy the sunsets from the front deck.

I am hesitant to give Ehu Kai an excellent review because I don't want the secret to get out and make it more difficult for me to reserve again. ;-)

This little gem is perfect for a couple or one or two small children who can sleep on a pull-out sofa and futon. Ehu Kai (Sea Spray) is located in a gated private residential area at the far end of the beach from the public access making it quiet and relaxing, a perfect get-away. The sea was calm and clear and great for snorkeling when we were there. The pictures do not do it justice. The house had all the amenities you could want, including a 2 car carport, gas barbecue, washer and dryer, beach chairs and accessories. It was clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the outdoor shower, which had warm water, as well as the foot shower located inside our private gate leading to the beach, steps away. We lived outside and only slept in the house. We will be back.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this one-bedroom at beach 69. It has lots of wood, is well kept, well equipped and is in an awesome location. Just a short walk from the quiet end of the beach which has shade and great snorkling. Hapuna is a quick drive down the road and has nice waves for body boarding and is a great beach. While there we were able to explore the north of the island to see hawi and some great valley with a black sand beach. The tv is kind of small but we never turned it on so that was not an issue for us. Lots of beach equipment to use as well. We got married in front on the beach and it was a great spot for sunsets.

We have stayed at this property several times. Our favorite place to stay on The Big Island. It is always wonderful, the location is perfect, well stocked & outfitted. Perfect for a couple, although we stayed several times with our son when he was young. Feels like home-away-from-home to me.

Happy to have been there

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased at how clean and well stocked this house was. Upon arrival we were given lots of information on good places to go for dinner, grocery stores, shopping,etc. All were accurate. We loved the privacy and enjoyed going to a local fish market to make dinner, which was a savings. The beach was a short walk, again private, and during the week practically deserted. We had a wonderful time and would love to visit again.
