  • Comfortable Family Accommodation

    "We are an active family of 5 with three children 5 and under. The condo was very convenient and comfortable for the two weeks that we enjoyed it. The location was perfect with a calm shallow beach for the kids to enjoy. Central and within a short drive to groceries and restaurants not to mention within a 20 minute drive to beautiful Wailea beaches and central to most places on the island. The condo itself had everything we needed. Two bedrooms with plenty of sleeping options and two bathrooms perfect for the kids. The kitchen was fully stocked for all cooking and drink blending desires. Beach toys, towels, chairs were all there to maximize our enjoyment away from the unit. The kids loved the pool. An extra special plus to the local owners who were in contact from the beginning to offer advice and make sure our stay was comfortable. This condo is spacious enough for a family of 5 and strategically located on the ground level for easy access to the outdoors. Rental fees are competitive with similar units in the complex. We highly recommend this vacation rental and would absolutely pursue it in the future if/when we return to the valley isle. Enjoy!"

  • Hawaiian Home Away From Home

    "After renting a house run by a company on Oahu it's so nice to rent a vacation "home" on the big island. Nice artwork, decent furnishing's inside and out and all the extra's you might need like first aid items, hair dryers, tons of cookware and lots of beach towels and snorkeling equipment. The owners were wonderful to deal with throughout the rental process returning my damage deposit promptly after departure. There were eight of us including three kids that often times begged us to go back to the house to swim in the pool and quit our sightseeing! The brand new hot tub was a huge plus as well. The view of the sunset was fabulous and the gardens surrounding the property were amazing as well as the total privacy. The housekeeper couple that maintain it work very hard to keep this whole property impeccable and do a great job of it. Best rental property i have ever rented but i am afraid i set the bar too high with this one because I am now planning a trip to Florida and nothing even compares!"

  • Had a Great Time!

    "I stayed here with my husband and our 2 children (22 & 14 y/o). The unit was clean & there was plenty of room for us. There was a grocery store close by. We boogie boarded at the beach across the street (Hukilau Beach) many times during our stay. Usually it was after a full day elsewhere, upon returning to the unit, my daughter would say, "let's go boogie boarding across the street!" We used the 2 boards that were already there! If you look to the left you see Goat Island/Moku'auia. We swam to it! To get there, drive up the road about a mile to Malaekahana Beach, park there, then swim (or wade since it's pretty shallow) to Goat Island. Pretty cool! WEAR WATER SHOES! Also, there were coconuts in the trees on the property, but REALLY high up. We managed to get a few. They were delicious! We drove daily towards Hale'iwa, stopping at Giovanni's shrimp truck, Ted's Bakery, Sharks Cove, Three Tables, Waimea Bay, Turtle Beach, etc. Snorkling to the left of Sharks Cove (right of Three Tables) was better than Hanauma Bay! Also went to the nearby PCC. This was our 2nd time to the North Shore and 1st time staying in La'ie. For the price, this unit is definetly a great deal! I gave 4 stars because the wifi kept going out & we went over our data plan (used up 4 additional allowances). I was trying to look up activities, make reservations. The kids were watching Netflix ALL night! And, surprisingly, there weren't any spices (salt, pepper, etc.) in the cupboard or 1 thing in the fridge (no ketchup. NOTHING). I left the staples we didn't use. This is the 1st house I've rented where the cleaning person must take EVERYTHING left behind in the kitchen. I left bottled waters, soda, butter, etc. My suggestion would be to make a sign on the fridge for ppl to date items they open so in case others want to use them. It sucks having to buy all the staples. Overall, had an super fun time!! Weather was awesome, too! Mahalo!!"

Hawaii Travel Tips

The eight islands collectively known as Hawaii offer abundant opportunities for surf, sun and scenic beauty. Here are the top things to do in Hawaii among the four most popular islands for visitors:

Hawaii

Also known as “The Big Island” to prevent confusion, the island of Hawaii is the largest in the chain. Here are the must-see and dos:

- Drive to Hilo off of Highway 220 and take a short hike through Akaka Falls State Park to see both Kahuna and Akaka falls, which are gorgeous.

- Take a guided tour of wild, verdant Waipio Valley. You’ll see the Kaluahine Waterfalls, which rush down a nearby cliff and into the ocean, as well as lush greenery at every turn. Go on a horseback riding tour with Na’alapa Stables or take a rough-riding tour on your own ATV with Ride the Rim.

- Check out the well-known Hilo Farmers Market to taste and purchase some of the best local Hawaiian goods: seafood, produce, clothing and crafts. It’s open every day, but the most popular days are Wednesday and Saturday. You’ll find everything from pineapples to bongo drums sold by more than 100 vendors here.

- Hit the legendary beaches. Some of the most beautiful are Papakolea Beach - it’s challenging to get to, but is one of the only beaches with olive green-colored sand in the U.S. - and Hapuna Beach State Park. Don’t miss a trip to the more remote Kealakekua Bay on the west side for excellent snorkeling and views of Spinner dolphins and sea turtles.

- Take a stroll in Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park for a dose of Hawaiian history in the form of detailed ki’i wood carvings and temples. You’ll also spot Honu’s here, which are Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

Maui

Maui is known for its luxurious Pacific beauty. Here are the top places to see on this island:

- Catch the sunrise at the volcanic crater in Haleakala National Park. It’s a 30-minute drive from base to crater and early mornings here are cold, but the views are amazing.

- Don’t miss the Old Lahaina Luau - supposedly one of the best and most traditional in the state. The Lahaina Luau lasts three hours, accompanied by dancing, roasted pork, lomi lomi salmon and mashed taro.

- If you’re staying in Kahului, a popular Maui city, take a scenic 55-mile drive to Hana. Pack a picnic and stop along the way - this stunning winding drive over lush hills high above the ocean is well worth a slow trip.

- Nothing looks crazier than the Kaihalulu Beach in Hana. The exotic red sand beach, towering trees and deep turquoise water provides a seascape like nothing you’ve seen before.

- Check out the world’s largest dormant volcano in Haleakala National Park. It will take you two hours to reach the summit, but there are many scenic overlooks along the way. Hike popular Pipiwai trail - a four-mile stretch around the Seven Sacred Pools of Oheo Gulch, where you can stop for a relaxing swim near tiny waterfalls.

Kauai

Here are some of the best things to do on this pretty island, which is the farthest land north and west of the chain:

- Visit the magnificent and breathtaking Na Pali Coast, where sharp cliffs of varying heights jut into the sky, creating an other-worldly effect near the ocean. One of the best ways to see Na Pali is via helicopter tour from Sunshine Helicopters, which also takes you over the vibrant green Waimea Canyon.

- If you’re an experienced hiker, dare yourself to take the 11-mile muddy and rocky hike on Kalalau Trail for an unparalleled view of Na Pali.

- Hit the links at Poipu Bay Golf Course. See if you can keep your mind on the game while surrounded by acres of tropical beauty, ocean views and even cute creatures, like the turtles, monk seals and geese that often hang out on the greens.

- Lounge on the beaches. The locals hang out at a relatively calm beach called Kalapaki, but there’s also Po’ipu, Lumahai and Hanakapi’ai beaches that are perfect for sunbathing.

- See the Kilauea Lighthouse on the northernmost point, not far from the National Wildlife Refuge.

- Take surf or stand-up paddleboard lessons at the Hamilton School of Surfing or rent kayaks, boogie boards and pedal boats from Hanalei River Watersports on the Hanalei Bay.

Oahu

Oahu is the most populous Hawaiian island and home to Honolulu. Here are the best things to do here:

- Head to world-famous Waikiki and Sunset beaches and Waimea Bay to sunbathe and watch surfers. Sprawling Kailua Beach Park is perfect for families. You can watch windsurfers with colorful kites, swim in the cerulean waters or have a picnic on the sand.

- Go hiking at Diamond Head, a 300,000 year-old crater created by one massive volcanic eruption. The best time to go is in the early morning when the temperatures are cooler.

- Visit the lovely Honolulu Museum of Art to see Georgia O’Keeffe’s Maui landscape paintings, an excellent collection of Asian art and even some works by Picasso and van Gogh.

- Pay homage at the Pearl Harbor and U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. It’s located where the famous invasion took place in 1941, you can even ride with a U.S. Navy boat to see the memorial up close and pay your respects.

- Check out ‘Iolani Palace, which once belonged to King Kalakaua and his sister Queen Liliuokalani. It’s an interesting sight as it stands out next to other Hawaiian architecture.
