"We rented Hale Honu for 2 weeks in January, 2015. We needed a house big enough for my daughter, son in law, their 3 daughters ages 6, 3, and 1, my husband and myself. Hale Honu was perfect. There was plenty of room for all of us, including a pack and play for the youngest. Family areas were big enough for all of us to congregate.
The house itself is fabulous, situated right on the ocean with floor to ceiling windows, wonderful carved furniture, a covered patio in back with hammock, table and chairs, outdoor shower, and a rock stairway down to the beach. There were plenty of towels, both bath and beach. The kitchen was complete with dishes, cooking utensils, even a coffee grinder. The clothes washer and dryer were conveniently located near the bedrooms. The master bathroom shower was delightful.
There were tide pools just down the beach where our granddaughters spent lots of time. The beach was never crowded but there were always surfers to watch. Close by are Haliewa, Waialua, Waimea, Sunset Beach, and Turtle Bay. Waimea Valley and Falls were a favorite. Food trucks were everywhere and shave ice plentiful all along the Kamehameha Highway .
The owner was very easy to work with, from the first contact to our departure. The only issue we had, with a stuck bedroom door, was taken care of immediately. We would definitely return."
