Dazzling, private and serene

  • 5 of 5

We recommend this property in the highest possible terms. Photos cannot evoke the actual splendor of the setting and the house itself. The Ali'i Drive location is extremely private but surprisingly close to restaurants, bars, surf board rental, beaches, and grocery stores. Once you enter the large and impressive automatic gate, you are closed off from the rest of the world and enter an idyllic scene that knocks ones socks off. We are used to 5 star accommodations and this was right up there with the best.

The house and gardens are well designed and meticulously maintained. It is true indoor/outdoor living. You sit on the lanai and feel the soft trade winds as you prepare meals, or just watch the surfers on the break a short paddle distance away. We saw turtles in the lava rock pool directly in front of the house every day. The sound of the surf is all you hear. There are no adjacent neighbors.

The owner Ali and the agent Kim were both very kind and responsive in all our dealings with them. Jose the caretaker was also very obliging upon our arrival and helped settle us in. We keep dreaming of this place and look forward to returning.

The name nailed it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Little Piece on Heaven in November and it was even better than I expected. The house is beautiful and the location couldn't be better. It was hard to leave to go site seeing because you could just stay at the house and watch the surfers, fish, turtles and sunset every day! This is really a special place and I would highly recommend it. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the wifi connection but it was really a blessing because no one should be wasting time on the internet when you are staying here.

Spectacular Oceanfront House

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adored this house right on the ocean. The view was spectacular - watching surfers from the outdoor kitchen and the amazing sunsets each night were priceless. The location was just far enough out of town to have privacy but yet close enough to be at the heart of everything. The sea turtles became our friends. We would definitely rent this house again in the future. ❤️❤️❤️

Awesome Time

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. The outside porch is covered, so we enjoyed spending all our daylight hours outside watching turtles and whales and surfers.

There is a farmer's market at the shopping center close by on Saturday mornings. Fruit, veggies, meat, fish, coffee (amazing stuff). Outdoor Kitchen is very cool (no microwave or oven though) If you are handy at the BBQ, and stove top, like we are, you'll enjoy cooking all your meals there.

Very private and relaxing. We will definitely be back. Thank you for sharing your home!

Perfect place on the Island

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of four, enjoyed staying in the adeptly named Little Piece of Heaven.

The location is peaceful and quiet, the house is beautiful, the outdoor kitchen and dining place and living room have to be experienced. Cooking and dining outside while watching the birds and the sunsets is simply great. Live could not be more relaxing, a fact that the turtles on the beach support (Up to four took the sun during the days and evenings on the beach, oblivious to us sitting close by). Snorkeling, swimming and snorkeling right out of the back door is great. Kim, the manager and Jose the caretaker are absolutely great and helpful with all issues arising. We highly recommend the place.

beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. I had all sorts of plans to explore the island but the set up was so fantastic we ended up doing little more then staying on the property, watching the whales and turtles and surfing while bbqing or having a fore in the evenings. Set up is very unique but very Hawaiian! Kim was great to deal with and more than accommodating. Would go back in a heart beat
