Our trip to paradise
"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.

"We have visited Oahu five times and each time we chose the Beach Lane View. We love Hawaii, especially the "Hawaiian" side of the island. We decided a long time ago that if we wanted the Honolulu vibe we may as well stay on the mainland and visit Los Vegas. The Beach Lane View is perfect for us since we enjoy being so close to the LDS temple and the PCC. We continue to enjoy Papa Ole's and Seven Brothers for good food and this time we discovered our new favorite shrimp truck, the Big Wave Shrimp Truck at Haleiwa. For anyone travelling without a car you can use the island bus system since there is a bus stop a few feet from the house. Greg always does his very best to accommodate the guests."

"Had a wonderful stay this year in the apartment. Vanessa is terrific! It was so close to the things we love to do. Early morning coffee on the lanai watching the surfers and whales is really a treat. The apt is fully stocked with all your needs. We're looking forward to our stay coming up soon. I'd recommend this unit for almost anyone who needs some fun in the sun."
