This is the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. The house is close enough to the sites and attractions of Oahu but remote enough to allow for peace and quiet when you want to take a break.
There is a beautifully landscaped yard enclosed on three sides with the fourth side open to the sea. There is plenty of room to enjoy the natural beauty of the rural side of Oahu. This is a great location for families. The North Shore and Honolulu attractions are within easy driving distance but you can also enjoy the privacy of your own waterfront/beach. This property is close to the Polynesian Cultural Center and state parks.
We had a wonderful time here! The only thing better would be if we could have stayed longer. The location is lovely, the house was well-equipped and is perfect for a family vacation. We loved being able to kayak and snorkel right from the property. Great Lanai as well.
We stayed January 7-11, 2017 and the home was so comfortable and enjoyable. Kiana was so friendly, the house was clean, furnishings perfect. We would definitely come again. Thank you.
If you want to get away and relax and unwind this is the place for you. The toughest decision you will need to make is where to sit outside to enjoy your morning coffee. Easy walk up the beach to the Shrimp Truck for your lunch. The views are absolutely amazing and you will not see many people on the beach...like having your own private beach. We had 6 adults staying at the house this trip and with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a beautiful kitchen it worked perfectly.
Let me first state that I rarely write reviews and that, when reading them, I usually reject the most positive and the most negative as both unrealistic. I look for a general consensus. When I came across this property for a family vacation, I was struck by the overwhelmingly positive reviews and employing the strategy described above, came to the conclusion that this would be an excellent selection. If you're looking for a out-of-city Hawaii experience on the eastern (more tropical but can be more windy) shore, you cannot go wrong here. We loved being out of Honolulu, but still close enough to experience everything. We hit all the standards - Hanauma Bay, Makapu'u Lighthouse Tour (sunrise, amazing), Ko'Olina Beaches, Kahana Beach bodysurfing, LDS Laie Temple and Polynesian Cultural Center (a little overpriced for what you get, but recognize that price exists to fund college students from other islands attending college at BYU-Hawaii), Matsumoto Shaved Ice (4 times in one week - obsessive, I know), and had scheduled some shark dives that were canceled due to windy conditions. We also took a lesser known zipline called Climbworks near Laie. We had a large group of 7; youngest 10, oldest 72 and it was the absolute highlight of our trip. It is a little expensive as well ($160) but there are 8 dual lines overall, the longest of which is just over half a mile. The views, the guides, and the scenery was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us.
As great as this all was, it was the unbelievable hosting by Kaina and his family that truly made the vacation special. When Kaina learned we were arriving on Thanksgiving, he and his family made us one of the best dinners we have ever and had it waiting when we arrived! Who does that? On top of that, he was constantly checking in to make sure we had everything we needed and from kayaks to snorkeling gear to body boards, he let us borrow them all, including his own mask and fins. This guy and his family were simply amazing, so kind and helpful. He suggested several other things too that we simply did not have the time to accomplish. If you're looking for an amazing host who can recommend and help you make your vacation truly special and desire a unique location to do it from, this is it. Thank you Kaina and family!
Aloha! We stayed for almost two weeks in this amazing beach house and loved every minute of our time there. The house is comfortable, spacious and extremely well equipped. We spent many hours outside both on the side patio and under the lovely new gazebo. Oahu is such a special place and we toured a new area every day, such spectacular vistas around every corner. Mahalo to Brenda and Max for allowing us to spend time in their lovely home!!
I don't know if this helps or not but I have never even been to Hawaii let alone seen the ocean but the beach house stayed in made the experience a whole lot better. I wouldn't of liked to stay anywhere else because most of Honolulu is the big city and I hate big cities so this was perfect for me. It was very open and there was a lot of space which I like. I would definitely want to stay there again because of all of these reasons. I also loved that you provided snorkeling gear and fins so we could go. Overall my stay was very memorable and I can hopefully come again sometime.
Enjoy rural Hawaii away from the crush of Honolulu and Waikiki. Close to Kualoa Ranch, Polynesian Cultural Center, hiking areas, and the Macademia Nut Farm
