"We loved Kelly & Pat's beautiful, spacious and well-appointed cottage, just a short stroll to one of the top beaches in the world. They thought of everything- lots of beach equipment, plentiful towels, washer/dryer, kitchen, and a super comfortable space with a big screen porch for sleeping, lounging, watching movies or eating. They are perfect hosts- friendly, welcoming and responsive, but also leave you alone to enjoy your vacation. We will definitely be back- what a great experience. (and the price is really reasonable for the amount of space and amenities)."

"We truly couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay! Steps from the most beautiful and quiet beach. Rick and Tami were very welcoming. They made us feel totally at home. We will definitely be back soon!"

"Property is exactly as described and pictured. Had a great week off before heading to Sydney for work. Rent a car and this place is an excellent launch pad for daily excursions or an excellent r&r spot on the beach. The beach is beautiful and peaceful and just enough foot traffic to keep it interesting while passing time away, but yet it still feel like its all yours! While facing the ocean there is an amazing somewhat secretive snorkel area to your right just past the rocks...you could walk down the beach, kayak, or drive and park. If you drive past the Shriners you've gone to far. You can also go to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, not so secret, which is a 5 minute drive down the road too...well worth it for snorkeling.
Shimas is just down the road for all your grocery needs.
You can go to Honolulu 2 very different ways (through the mountain or around the island perimeter) and they both yield excitement and several exploration activities. Plus you can go to Kailua in 5 minutes if you need Target for additional supplies for whatever reason.
Beautiful, clean property; safe, secluded, incredible, and quiet beach; great comfortable launch pad from which to explore Oahu."

"Let me begin to say this is my 3rd time visiting Oahu, Hawaii. The other 2 times I stayed with friends locally and also at a hotel. And boy, the experience of having your own very nice house is completely different and soooo worth it if you're going with a large group. We always do that rather than get separate hotel rooms.
This was a family trip of 11 that we took for my grandmother's 90th birthday. We had 9 adults and 2 teens ages 13 and 15 in our group. We rented 2 minivans and I was basically the director most of the time with all the activities and amenities there. My family is fairly new to renting homes as they are used to just getting a hotel. This has got to be the top 2 of all the homes I've ever rented on VRBO/Homeaway, and I've rented over 15 vacation homes in the last 4-5 years since I have been introduced to it.
Our flight was probably one of the last flights in that night and I was in constant communication with Leilani (who I emailed to get the home) and Noelani (who texted me the week before and the time we were there). Noelani told me that she would be waiting for us at the house upon our arrival. I felt so bad for her bc our flight got delayed and we arrived even later at around 10pm. Most houses I have rented usually just give us an entry key code, but Noelani was there to personally greet my whole family and me and also asked if we wanted her to have tea going for us when we arrived at the house. Idk, maybe it's a Hawaiian thing bc everyone here in Hawaii is SUPER nice! Not a fake nice either, just genuinely nice. It's infectious! Of course navigating with 2 cars full of people and luggage in the dark wasn't easy. Noelani knowing this bc we were texting back and forth, even went and stood outside by the mailbox at the end of the driveway (super long driveway btw) in the dark to wait for us to aid us in finding the house. Who does that? And who even works at 10 pm for a real estate office? She greeted us with friendly smiles and gave us a quick tour. I then found out that her company just recently took over the house listing. We were all super excited running through the house choosing our beds and were even greeted with a HUGE gift basket full of Hawaiiam goodies and snacks.
Since we arrived at night, we could hardly see what was waiting for us outside these walls of windows. So the next morning we all woke up at around 6 am and was even more excited to see what our house and scenery looked like. Boy was it breathtaking!"
