"My husband and I spent our vacation at Hale Launa, and it was absolutely amazing! We were blessed to have found such a beautiful place, with so much natural beauty, privacy, and a caretaker that just made our stay perfect. My husband grew up on the North Shore, so over the years we have stayed many places, and he says Hale Launa has the best view on the North Shore!! It was difficult to pick between the studio and suite, but we had a friend join us, so our stay was the suite. We enjoyed our morning breakfast with such a beautiful view, and sunsets were always breathtaking! Sitting on the lanai late at night, listening to Bob Marley, or Carol King, and stargazing was the perfect ending to every day, (unless we were in the hot tub). Having chairs, fins, and masks for snorkeling was terrific... "Three Tables" has great snorkeling. We love the North Shore; Ted's Bakery, shrimp and other food trucks, hiking was awesome, and the beaches are wonderful; ( Turtle Beach, Rocky Point, Sunset Beach, Wiamea, and Turtle Bay was nice, but more commercialized).
Our time spent at Hale Launa was wonderful, just too short! The beds were so comfy, the linens very nice, kitchen had everything we needed, geckos are just a plus! Having a private security entrance was nice.
Now, what really made our stay so pleasant was the sincere, and professional hospitality of Louise! She respected our privacy, yet was available for any questions or concerns. She knew I loved coffee, and was kind to pick up some freshly ground coffee for me. After leaving, I discovered I had misplaced a very special evening purse.....which she was able to locate, and mail back to me. Thank you Louise!
The property is filled with beautiful, tropical plants; the beds are comfy, and Louise will make you feel welcome with a true Aloha spirit. I certainly hope to return, for a longer visit, when able. Until then, Aloha Louise Blessings to you."
