"We just returned home from our stay at Dyan's place. Just as the reviews said, the condo was immaculate and easy to maintain. The kitchen was a delight. It had everything you need including a good cork screw for wine. We loved going to sleep each night with the sound of the waves. There is absolutely no reason a person wouldn't feel safe here. One needs a fob key for everything...getting in parking lot, getting in the Gate to grounds,getting on elevator. There is a full time security person and she actually is all over the premises. One evening I unlocked my door and left the key in the door. Less than 10 minutes later there was a knock on the door. It was Ms security letting me know what I had done. We loved the beach which is really a cove and pretty private. I'm afraid while we were there, there was more wind than normal. But I did go into water on a few occasions on the board. For you beachcombers, there is sea glass! My husband is ill and could not be sitting on the beach because it was difficult to get up so the balcony was wonderful for him. The sconce horn blowers who blew to the four winds every evening that the sun set were a treat to watch. My only beef is the traffic. It took me a few days to figure out I needed to reschedule our trips to the north shore, Honolulu or the windward side to after 10 am and return before 3 pm or stay and return after 6:30. The traffic is unreal. It can take up to 2 1/2 hours to go to the Honolulu area if you time it wrong. And there is also a thing called the "Pearl Jam". I believe this occurs on Wednesday from 2 pm and on. Pearl Harbor workers,military get off early that day. All in all, a wonderful relaxing place to stay. I so appreciated Dyan's caring about our circumstances and making my husbands bucket list trip a memorable one."

Lovely ocean front home perfect for family reunion!
"This was a perfect location for our family reunion of 12. We took our two children and their families to Hawaii for a week and found Mari's home to be immaculate, spacious and beautiful. When we walked through the door we were blown away with the drop-dead gorgeous views. We made good use of the lovely pool, the multiple decks, the beach and pool equipment, the large kitchen, and the laundry facitilies. Mari and her daughter were wonderful to work with and take great pride in making your Hawaiian experience everything you want it to be. From our first contact with Mari to the return of our deposit, Mari was professional, friendly, and helpful. Mari went way above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend this property to my friends and would love to return someday."

"Great studio & great hosts. The bed was super comfy. The place was quiet. The hosts had everything we needed. Beach chairs, snorkels, towels even a kayak & beach toys for kids. The beach was quiet & had lifeguards. We will be back"

"I stayed in this beautiful condo for the entire month of April and loved every minute of it. The condo itself is nicely set up and has everything you need. It was recently remodeled so everything is newer and in working order. Considering it is on the beach, i found the condo to be clean with hardly any bugs. I am a clean freak and even after cleaning up, by the end of the day with the wind and the sand there would be dust on the counters (which is normal in Hawaii). So i think some of the other reviews were maybe from folks that are not used to being in a beach environment. What sets this place apart is the beach. You step right out the door onto the beach! The beach itself is one of the best on Oahu. It is kind of tucked away, so there are never many people and is very clean (please help keep it that way). At night you can hear and when the swell is big feel the waves. I was lucky enough to see turtles, fish, outrigger canoes races and whales right from the lani. The sunsets are amazing. West Oahu is a treat to be hold. It's not Honolulu (thank god); more like Hawaii 40 or 50 years ago. If you show the locals respect, you get it back in spades (remember it is their islands). I surfed and bodyboarded with Dino and Nate, the local boys on the beach. If you say hello, they welcome you right in. The owner of the condo was great to deal with. Because i was there for work she was more than willing to work with me on having items shipped to myself. The next time I am on Oahu, I will be looking to see if this condo is available. Thak you for letting me stay!
