Dreams Came True
"My wife and I wanted our family of 15, which includes 7 grandchildren ranging from 5 to 15 years old, to participate in a family trip that all would create great memories for the rest of their lives. Let me tell you, our plan was a great success! This beautiful home was amazing and it supplied us with everything we could ever need. There was more than enough space for all of us and we were all able to make it our home for the 9 days we spent there. Just as the other reviewers have mentioned, the home and grounds are absolutely beautiful! We mostly enjoyed how convenient and fun it was to be just a few steps from the bay. The bay is a perfect place for the kids to enjoy just about any water sport they wanted to participate in. It was a comfort to all the adults to be able to watch the kids from the beach or balcony. The kids were always in the water until dark.
Irma is absolutely one of the nicest and most patient persons we have ever met. We have a special needs 5 year old grandson who can eat only certain foods and needed to get access to the refrigerator before the house was ready for us. She went out of the way to greet us early in the day as they were cleaning and allowed us to supply the refrigerator and spend time at the beach while they finished in the home. Near the end of our vacation our 12 year old granddaughter had to have her appendix taken out. She spent the last 3 days on the couch watching t.v.. Irma came over and greeted her with a card and gift. Boy, did that make her day! Thank you for everything Irma.
Marilyn, the owner is absolutely correct when she says, "Kawela Bay is magical". She goes out of her way to keep you informed of the many things to experience in the area. As she mentioned, the Polynesian Cultural Center is a must see and all of us enjoyed it immensely. Kawela Bay truly is "magical" because my wife and I saw the "magic" in our families eyes the entire stay. Everyone was to the point of tears for the soul reason of having to end our wonderful vacation at such a beautiful property. We could not have asked for anything more to make our trip a dream come true.
A very special mahalo from all of us to Marilyn and Irma."

"The beach house is just lovely: very well decorated with vintage items that are nostalgic for returning locals like us. The location is just perfect, right on the beach. So happy to be in a home rather than in a hotel or motel. Please keep the country, country! Neighbors were very nice too and everyone was friendly. Enjoyed watching the big waves and surfers; we had a front row seat! Sunsets were also gorgeous. It was a very perfect time and place for us to spend with our adult daughters."

"We thought our unit 18a was great. Very comfortable. It has everything for cooking. We were there a month. Just a few units away and you are on the beach. Sunsets were great. This is a great place to stay after fighting g the traffic of Honolulu. The owners take care of any needs immediately. You must rent for a month-not too long. Nice pool, clean laundry room and friendly people. Mahal."

"We just returned from our visit to the North Shore and could not have been happier with our choice. The house was in the most perfect location. There were hardly any people on the beach in front of the house and you literally just step five steps out the back door and are on the sand. Sitting on the beach in the morning with coffee was the best part of the day. And the house itself was great too! It was clean, comfortable, and well stocked. We did not need to bring anything, as all the comforts of home were provided. And the added bonus was conversation with legendary surfer Ken Bradshaw, who manages the property. It was just more than we could have hoped for and we will go back again for sure!!!"
