"Our extended family of 10 shared this house for 10 days over Christmas and could not have been happier. All the reviews below are accurate; the house and grounds are immaculate, the kitchen is well stocked (complete with a high end juicer machine!), and the bedrooms are all very comfortable with their own bathroom. The location was perfect for us. We were an easy 5 minutes from Whalers general store, 10 minutes from Kapaa, and just a short walk from pristine desolate beaches in addition to the one off the back porch. What really separates this house from the rest is the property manager, Jude. She is there to help any question or issue that may arise and will help make your stay as perfect as possible. Book with confidence!"

"We found our long term rental the old fashioned way: we found a location we liked, drove the road in the neighborhood, saw a vacation rental sign, called and were able to rent an apartment there for our entire stay. We couldn’t have been closer to the beach and the views and location were very special It cost (with negotiation) $4000 a month, including everything.
It was a neighborhood on a street that dead-ended near our apartment where developers had not gotten involved. It was 1.4 miles from the main road (Hwy 56 or Kuhio Highway). We were 7.4 miles from Kapaa and generally the traffic was light until we got into town.
There were three building units on a large, oceanfront property all owned by our landlady, Esther Medeiros. Our unit was two-story and our apartment was on the top floor. It was called Hibiscus Hale Lani (hibiscus under the sky). See the pictures of our Hibiscus Hale Lani on Essie’s other website. These were not luxurious properties; they were functional, perfectly situated and comfortable. Nice to hang out there!
Our apartment was a one bedroom, one bath with two decks that ran the length of the apartment; one deck was on the ocean side and one on the garden side of the unit.
Walking toward the ocean in the hallway there was an expansive ocean view provided by two large picture windows, with a sliding glass door in between. The room was a large rectangle with a kitchen and dining area on the left and on the right side: a sofa, an interesting mahogany and drift wood table that we used for a coffee table, and a flat screen TV on a TV table across from the sofa.
We had cable TV and very good wi-fi in the apartment (our landlady, Essie, bought a new router for our apartment). Our kitchen had a refrigerator, a microwave, a blender, a toaster and a full 4-burner stove and oven. There were two sinks but no disposal or dishwasher. Audre could cook comfortably in this space and the kitchen was outfitted well enough. So she was happy.
Dimitri got his beach house on the sand in a quiet, old-fashioned Hawaiian neighborhood (with good wi-fi and cable) so he was happy. Essie was a very good landlady. If ever there was a problem, we would e-mail her and she would fix it herself or send someone. She made sure that we were happy. Essie had a man come to spray for bugs and the apartment was fairly bug-free. We had geckos, of course.
The sound of the waves at the shoreline on our Aliomanu Beach was a constant, calming sound."

"What a perfect location on Anahola Bay! The cottage is very secluded and at the end of a lovely bay protected by a reef. Swimming, snorkeling and kayaking are all wonderful here. We loved our week here whether we were just relaxing and playing or taking easy day trips to the North Shore or south to Poipu. The cottage is perfect for two, but might be small for 3 or 4. The grounds are lovely, but our only wish would be for screens so we could keep windows and doors open to enjoy the Hawaiian breezes. Still, it is a paradise!"

"This is a truly lovely vacation rental. The guest house is actually a suite of rooms attached to the main house with a bedroom, bath/laundry room, living room with a small kitchenette, and a spacious deck. The property is VERY nice with the custom built home, professionaly landscaped grounds, and a helpful, friendly caretaker on site in her own cottage. (She offered us fresh coconut for morning treats!) Note that the kitchen facilities were limited, so most meals were eaten out. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return in the future."
