"I stayed here with my family and 2 girls. It was such a beautiful and clean home. It was totally childproof for my 4yr old and 1.5 yr old. It was so nice to go shell picking, fishing and play on the lawn area. Waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the waves was amazing. My husband was able to dive out front for tako (octopus) and fish and we grilled our catches of the day right on the bbq for dinner. Rarely does the hotel/house make a vacation, but this house did. We will absolutely rent this again."

"What a fabulous Villa --- Great Views! we sat on the balcony every morning, noon and evening.
Everyone for this rental went above and beyond. I posted pictures on facebook & all of my friends and family commented on what a fabulous view and location.
My daughter wants us to book this Villa again for next year
Thank you Paul and Vicky!"

Wonderful Property, making for a Wonderful Vacation
"I am writing this review while we are still guests for one more night of a weeklong stay, typing on my iPad while sitting at the picnic table featured in this property's lead photo (and looking at/listening to the evening surf). This is our kids' first time to Hawaii, and also the first trip like this of any kind for my wife's mom, who has never traveled to this kind of a destination. We ourselves are former vacation rental property owners, so we have empathy for what it takes to create an environment that makes lasting memories for guests
Put simply, we will be taking away so many lasting memories from our time here. Carolyn and Joe are wonderful owners. This property is exactly what we wanted: a home base so remarkable that any excursion away from the property is a tough decision. We have the ocean at our doorstep, shade whenever we want it, great snorkeling within walking (or swimming) distance, endless island breezes, and when the neighboring porch lights are turned off for the night, stars that you never see in suburbia.
Are there cats? Yes. Are they in any way intrusive or distracting from your stay? Not at all. A former guest's complaint about a cat dropping is ridiculous. Does that guest also slam property owners when a bird does its business on their car rental? Yet those kinds of guests exist, investing hours upon hours looking for flaws that aren't flaws at all. I've encountered those guests from my days as a VR owner. All you can do as an owner is try to serve their unservable requests, and await their departure.
We are grateful for Carolyn and Joe's hospitality, and their tips on local restaurants and beaches. We hiked to Hidden Beach, where the journey was as remarkable as the destination. We boogie boarded several other beaches within 10 minutes of the property. A Saturday trip to North Shore was free of weekday traffic. We watched sunsets at Sunset Grill. But always, we looked forward to coming back here, to grilling a steak or fresh fish, and listening to the cackles of our kids either in the hot tub or on the beach building sandcastles.
If you are looking at this property for your next vacation, do yourself a favor. Stay more than a few days. Give yourself a chance to appreciate what this side of the island and this property have to offer. We look forward to a return stay here, hopefully sooner than later.
Mark and Lesley and family"

"My family of seven totally enjoyed staying at this property during our vacation. EVERYTHING we needed (minus groceries) was provided. We enjoyed the location away for the busy city area of Honolulu. This location was not too far of a drive and well worth it. The views this home provided were amazing. The locals were extremely friendly. Although there were a few homeless people in the area, they did not bother us. I enjoyed cooking breakfast each morning as waves made music through the opened windows/doors in the house. The beautiful Makaha Beach was a short walk from the property. If we are ever in Oahu, we will definitely stay at this property again."
