"I knew when I booked this house by the photos it was going to be lovely. Stepping through the front door did not disappoint.The house is beautifully furnished and decorated. I wanted to take home all the paintings and carved lights, bedheads and mirrors. So much room for our family of four. Our 2 teenage daughters had their own separate rooms, so no fighting,Yay. Loved sitting on the Lanai watching whales through the binoculars and ending the day with a gorgeous sunset. Our youngest loved the pool and swam almost daily. We loved the garden filled with tropical plants and geckos. Even had a friendly neighbourhood cat drop by.The kitchen was great to use, the laundry very useful. Shops and beaches about a 15 minute drive away. Your house made this little Aussie family very very happy. I cried when we had to leave, 9 days was not long enough. We hope to be back one day. Thankyou so much."

"I chose Hale Malihini as the perfect home to spend a family vacation in based on the location and pictures provided on VRBO. I was not disappointed. From the moment I showed an interest in securing the house for our family of 9, Ben was in contact with me and assured me of what to expect from a personal description of the home, to the area it was located in, and the finances. We were delighted to be so near White Sands Beach, as it became the first destination each morning for our one year old grandson, as well as the two teen grandchildren who loved to snorkel. We enjoyed exploring the entire island by day and were able to be back home in time for supper and the sunset. All of our rooms were comfortable and well appointed. We were especially grateful for the assortment of beach equipment including chairs, umbrellas, coolers, and water toys. We could not have survived our beach visits without them. We were able to take in the markets, coffee shops, and luau in town with just a 10 minute drive down Alii Drive. Our host was available and helpful from start to finish. Thank-you for a wonderful 3 week stay in your beautiful home, Jan and Ben. Mahalo."

"We are just wrapping up a two week stay at the Palm Bungalow and we would highly recommend it. The owners are lovely but not intrusive and the bungalow feels very private. The surrounding neighborhood feels like a resort and it's very quiet. We enjoyed exploring the island but also really enjoyed just hanging out on the lani.
We cooked many of our meals on the grill and the small fridge holds about two days worth of groceries. Fruit is plentiful and ripens fast so you don't want to buy too much at one time. There is a large cooler outside for storing food and drinks too.

"My husband and I entered Kee's beautiful home and truly had to stop and observe ALL the incredible attention to detail in decorating this warm home. The entrance boasts Chinese screens, Asian accents, large gong, big windows, African mahogany wood throughout, botanical prints, etc, etc. THEN, you head outside to the most amazing pool with incredible views out to the ocean.
We barbequed 5 nights of our 8 nights, and sat under the setting sun blissed out and grateful for this lovely home rental.
The house is PERFECT for two couples, the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house allowing for privacy and down time from one another.
The kitchen is large enough for four people to use at the same time without bumping into one another...when I got home to my lovely flat in San Francisco I realized how tiny my kitchen is!
Kee must have had an interior decorator do this home...or else...she should be in the decorating business...it truly is a work of art...
We did not want to leave, we will return, we are grateful.
Thanks Kee and thanks Dani for welcoming us to your lovely Island."
