Exactly as promised!!!
"Hawaii house was exactly as promised! The pictures are an extremely accurate representation of the house. It was comfortable, beautiful, and very well stocked. We had everyone from ages 9 to 83 and no one was disappointed. The house was a great distance from everything we needed or wanted to see, and with the ocean, turtles, crabs, and skydivers in the back yard we were never without things to watch. Gary was amazing to work with and answered all our questions thoroughly and quickly. Penny, the caretaker, was the best and happily helped us with anything we needed while we were there. I would whole-hearted recommend Hawaii House to anyone!"

"We stayed here for 7 nights and had a wonderful time. Paul, the manager, met us, showed us the ropes and then let us enjoy. We had an issue with the refrigerator and he took care of it as soon as possible. The kitchen really is amazing. Carpeting needs some updating upstairs, but it was clean and comfortable. The beds are advertised as queens, and they are not - they are full size. I would stay again as long as you are looking for peace and quiet. You are 15 minutes from any larger grocery stores and other amenities, but that is what we liked."

"No complaints from this family. It was our first time using VRBO, and it worked out perfectly. Helen was great from the get go. Sally was very accommodating. Location was perfect. We were looking for something away from the city life and we found it. In all honesty, my husband wants to relocate our family here.... Hmmmm who knows lol"

"My wife and I stayed at this property in September, 2015. I will begin this review with the caveat; do not judge a book by its cover. We arrived late afternoon and I initially thought the property was going to be a disappointment. This property appeared weathered and I myself felt it would be the same inside. Well it was certainly not the case. We met ‘Dave” and were given the initial tour of a very nice property. This home had everything we would need or want for our 4 day stay. All the appliances were spotless and nearly new. The beds were very comfortable. The property is air conditioned and kept the home quite comfortable, even though we were told it was one of the hottest Septembers on record. Dave was quite thorough in his tour and even shared a few stories of spending some of his childhood in this home. The deck area could not have been any closer to the water than it was. This was the explanation of my initial assessment. Exterior maintenance of a property this close to the crashing waves and almost constant sea breeze can be challenging at best. My negative thoughts had completely faded and our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. Morning coffee was met with beautiful sunrises and the hot tub just outside the door made for even more enjoyment in the early hours of the day. Returning from a day of activities was met with relaxing waves hitting the beach as we sat an enjoyed a glass of wine. You will need to walk a short distance to one of the nearby beaches as the area just in front of the property is pretty rocky and not really suitable for swimming. We were told there was a reef out a bit from the beach area but the waves made this area look a bit intimidating for us.
There is a local grocery store and drug store from the CVS family about a mile away with a local café next door serving nice local plate dishes. A few miles down this same road are several commercial businesses, one of which is a larger grocery store as well as a shop where you can get your fill of Hawaiian shave ice….wow what a way to start a vacation.
The area in which the home is located is considered the country. There are no high-rises or extensive nightlife but if you want to come to Oahu and relax this is certainly a nice place to do it. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Our stay at Hale Koolua was a wonderful way to experience Hawaii for the first time. We will certainly be back and stay at this property.
