"We stayed at this house last week and it was everything we hope for and more. The house is clean and beautiful and the beach in front has great snorkeling and swimming each morning. It was quiet, secluded and very private. Eunice the house cleaner was friendly, professional and very responsive to questions we had when we called her cell phone number provided. The house has the amazing views of the beach/ocean from every bedroom and we really enjoyed the lanai every single day. We would go out in the morning to other beaches or attractions and come home to relax on "our" beach or lanai each afternoon. It was a very relaxing vacation and just what we needed. We are already planning our next stay at this property!!"

"Much has been said in the previous reviews, and I agree with what was posted. So, I'll just add a few things that might help you make a decision or in your planning.
We brought all our snorkeling gear, but that was totally unnecessary. The closet in the laundry area is well-stocked with boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkels, masks, flippers, beach toys, and even a cooler and umbrella - basically everything you'd need to relax on the beach.
I rented a longboard in Hanalei, but the waves were breaking nicely here in Anahola bay so I didn't surf anywhere else. Of course, wave conditions change throughout the year, but while we were here, low tide brought waist-high waves to the bay a few hundred yards to the right of the backyard every morning, and high tide brought in decent rides straight out on the reef.
It was also a perfect place for our kids to explore. Down the beach to the right is a river mouth and lagoon that changes with the tide. Our girls played there every day. On weekdays, they had it pretty much all to themselves. On the weekend, lots of people visit that area, so our kids made lots of friends, but the home is far enough away to still have privacy, even when the bay is crowded.
The reef protects the beach from the big pounding beach break, so it was perfect for us to let our girls explore and swim to their hearts content.
The house and location was perfect. It was exactly what I hoped."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We had a lovely time at the Sandcastles rental. We had 6 adults and 1 4yr old stay for 1 week in May 2015. It was nice to have a full bathroom for each couple (1 bathroom not directly connected to the room like the other 2). We had a lovely, beach wedding ceremony steps away from the lawn, followed by a tent reception in the HUGE grassy lawn surrounded by lush garden which gave us more privacy. We can't wait to return to this home again someday! My only feedback is they could use a new shower head in the large, master bathroom and it would be nice if the sliding doors locked more securely (each door had a dowel that kept it locked). Many thanks to Lisa who promptly answered our numerous questions!"

"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."
