"We spent a week at this ultra private home. It was just as pictured with unbelievable views. When the early afternoon sun hits the water out front, it's a beautiful crystal blue/green and looks like paradise.
The house is well-equipped for cooking, relaxing, watching TV/Movies (it's a Smart TV and you can access Amazon Prime and other subscription services on it) or just watching the waves. The private sandy beach is a great place to hang out and enjoy the sunrise or read or whatever you want to do.
The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels! We appreciated Arish's quick response when the automatic door lock stopped working. We left the house and went back to get something and couldn't get back in. It wasn't a big deal and we just texted her about it and continued north for the day. It was all fixed when we got back that afternoon.
The location couldn't be more beautiful or convenient - I'm glad we chose this side of the island for our visit - it was lush and green - just like Hawaii should feel. Stand on the deck off the master and turn around towards the mountains - you'll feel like you're in an episode of LOST with the mountain towering over the coconut trees just behind you.
Be aware that this house doesn't have air conditioning - just a ceiling fan in the main living area and large stand fans for the bedrooms. I was miserably hot in the house and didn't feel much like cooking even though that was our plan. My family didn't feel it as much, but I discovered I am pretty heat+humidity intolerant. At night, we had to sleep with the windows all open and the ocean crashing against the rocks just under the bedroom windows is LOUD. We had to get some earplugs. When I shut the windows to leave on the last day, the sound was much more pleasant. A wall A/C unit in the bedroom would make a HUGE difference. As funny as it sounds, we went to bed every night saying, "Shut Up, Ocean!". The waves don't lap up to the rocks, they crash against them.
Aside from that, it was a great place - loved the privacy and amenities. The bathroom set up is great for families - the double sinks are outside the shower/toilet area. The house feels very spacious. It's always nice to have room to spread out on a family vacation and this is truly the most beautiful part of Oahu."

"As I sit here writing this review, I say to myself, "If I tell people how wonderful this was, would I soon not be able to be there?, because too many people would love it too?" If you love the natural beauty of Hawaii and a life unhurried, this is the place for you. The master bed is so comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, the view from every room spectacular.. The beach is reef, perfect for swimming. We loved the casual feel of a real beach house. We spent many hours outside, as the yard allows you to decide whether you want to be in shade or sun. There is a busy road close enough to know it is there but not a problem if you pay attention to the traffic....
PS.. We miss not having a Gecko in our Calif house!

"Perfect place for the price! Perfect location for exploring the whole island! I think we had neighbors the whole time and never would have known except for seeing their vehicles from time to time. The use of the kayaks, life jackets, boogie board.... Was perfect and saved us $. Someone mentioned no table inside....when you see the view from the table on the deck you won't care about a table inside! We got in late an had instructions to get in and it went very smoothly. Arish was very quick to answer any questions we had! Thanks for sharing your little paradise! We saw turtles every evening while eating on the deck!"
