Great Family Vacation House
"Our family stayed in the house for two weeks. I would recommend this house for anyone who wants a fantastic back yard right on the beach. We saw spinner dolphins from the lanai on several occasions, and yes they were out of the water spinning, monk seals on the beach and many, many, turtles. The younger group of family swam out to the turtle cleaning station. The house has everything you need for cooking, large kitchen table for playing games with the family, long counters to have buffet style dinners, picnic tables for the back lawn (we ate dinner out there several times), and beach equipment. Inga's Realty was great to book our trip through. This is the more rural side of the island, so rent a car if you want to travel around the island. Plenty of parking at the house. Thank you for sharing your house."

"With my daughter and family staying at a nearby condo for the week, this studio apartment was the perfect fit for me. The owners welcomed me like family, making sure I had everything I needed and giving good referrals for dining and activities. I fell in love with the views from their private beach and the kids appreciated the use of some of their water toys and snorkel gear. With high surf that week, I had a first-class seat for watching the many surfers at Makaha Beach and it was a great location for exploring quiet beaches and some of the less-traveled areas of the Makua Kea'au Forest Reserve."

"Other than a couple of nights at ski resorts, this was our first owner owned vacation rental. At first, I was hesitant. There were signs posted that the facility did not have the resources of a hotel. I felt out of place and wondered if we would be treated nicely. I worried needlessly. The other occupants of the condo were extremely nice and welcoming. The condo itself was elegant with beautiful furnishings. Little amenities like basic cooking supplies, (salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar ect...,) ice chests, beach chairs, and beach towels, made our stay comfortable and made us feel at home. Waianae is a bit isolated and the town is not tourist oriented, but we enjoyed the isolation and the authentic Hawaiian feel. The view from the lanai was incredible. Kim was great to work with. We hope to stay there again soon."

"We spent a wonderful 6 week vacation here, in February and March of 2015. The unit feels really spacious and it worked very well for us. The views of the mountain as well as the beach and ocean were wonderful. I really appreciated the excellent and reliable internet connection. I am semi retired but still do a fair bit of work on my computer, so it was great to keep this going and be able to stay in touch with my colleagues in the UK and Canada, in a couple of hours before sunrise each day.
We both enjoy snorkelling, and about half the days we were there the ocean was calm and clear enough for us to have some great snorkelling seeing fish and turtles, particularly at the south end of the beach around the rocks at the base of Mauna Lahi Lahi. When the sea was to rough for snorkelling, it was still nice to sit and read on the beach, it was great fun to see the surfers and paddle-boarders right off the shore and we particularly enjoyed watching the local kids, who arrived after school, having so much fun along the edge with their boogie boards.
We had, what for us was an added bonus of on three separate days, a Monk Seal choosing to spend the day on the beach.
We didn’t feel the need to venture away from Waianae and the beach too often: we found that, apart from a few trips to Safeway in Kapolei, the Waianae Store, could supply most of what we needed and the folks there are so friendly, and their malasadas fantastic. We did do the hikes into Kaena Point from both directions and were rewarded with seeing more monk seals on the beach, whales breaching off the north shore walk and then albatrosses and their chicks nesting at the point."
