Great house...great location...great owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect!!! This house is in a wonderful location near the north shore of the island. It is a great place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing vacation, far from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, but still close enough to enjoy everything on the island. It is in a very quiet neighborhood and you won't hear anything other than the sound of waves to lull you to sleep.

The house is only two miles from the Polynesian Cultural Center (Pounders Restaurant is very reasonable and has great food and outstanding service), and about 20 minutes to the Kualoa Ranch, where you can take bus/atv tours of the various movie sights (including Jurassic Pack) or go horseback riding, or zipline. This house is also about 20 minutes from Turtle Bay Resort where you can experience fine dining at their three restaurants. There are also lots of food trucks offering a variety of options including lots of fresh...very fresh shrimp dinners. But if you want a relaxing evening at this home with the ocean front view, pick up something to go, or make a nice meal using the well stocked kitchen.

The house is extremely clean and well stocked. Darcelle is a wonderful hostess who thinks of everything to make your stay perfect. Need something, or some advise? Darcelle is a very gracious hostess who quickly responds to your needs or questions. We have rented many homes over the past five years and nothing compares to hospitality offered by Darcelle and the comfort/cleanliness of her rental home.

The interior of this house is even better than the photos show. The house is decorated in a true tropical theme with rattan furniture to give you that true Hawaiian atmosphere.

We had a wonderful time enjoying the peace and quiet of this home, as well as, exploring the entire island during our week vacation.

Nemo's Nest was a Heavenly Nest

  • 5 of 5

This was mine and my husband's first time in Hawaii, and our first experience with VRBO. Darcelle who owns the property went above and beyond to make our 40th anniversary stay pleasant. She and her husband live in the front home. She was just a phone call away and was very prompt, if there was anything we needed. She is very knowledgeable about places to go and see. Her and her husband enjoy hiking and know lots of trails. The home was very clean and provided us with everything we needed. The grocery market was only a mile away. It is a very quiet neighborhood and in the evenings were able to sit out in the backyard and enjoy a sky full of stars. So many things close by for our enjoyment (Polynesian Cultural Center, Hawaii LDS temple, farmer's markets, beaches for snorkeling and/or swimming, food trucks). We would definitely stay here again. This is the best island to go to for first timers.

Beautiful ocean front. Very private location.

  • 3 of 5

Owners on location and very delightful people, very accommodating. Cottage is a nice size. Furnishings are tired and need replacement. Kitchen was not well outfitted if you intend to cook and eat in. Overall a pleasant experience.

What a great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 really enjoyed our stay! The house was perfect for us! It was very well furnished, completely stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals, wash our clothes and bathe/shower! It was very clean and inviting upon our arrival! All appliances and fixtures were very well taken care of and in great condition! The owners of this beautiful home were very welcoming and accommodating! We really loved this sweet home and feel very blessed to have been able to stay there! We definitely plan on staying there again!

Wonderful stay!! Couldn't ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time while staying at Nemo's Nest! The home was clean and just like it was pictured! There were no surprises. We were set with everything we needed! Darcelle and Mike are so helpful and kind! Darcelle went above and beyond to provide us with a couple camping chairs for a sporting event our daughter was involved in. I emailed her to find out where we could find chairs and she went out and got us 2 while we were out sightseeing! It was so appreciated that we didn't have to hunt around for them! We would definitely stay here again. The air conditioning worked and was a wonderful amenity since we are from Minnesota and were concerned about being able to sleep in the heat/humidity! We barely saw anyone from the backyard. It was in a quiet neighborhood. We felt like we had the whole ocean to ourselves. It was close to a couple grocery stores and a drug store. We were able to get everything we needed right there! We loved staying out of the city and seeing real Hawaii! The scenery was so beautiful! Thank you for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, it was great to meet you and your family. I hope everything went well with your daughters competition. It was our pleasure to seek out some outdoor chairs that you could use during the swim meet. Hope to see you again soon.
