Great place for family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at the Fitzhenry's Hawaiian Thunder for the past four years and each time have had an excellent experience. It is a excellent home and vacation spot for our large family, young and old.

It was all that we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first vacation at Emerald Isle and it did not disappoint! There is something for everyone at Emerald Isle, yet it is not congested or overly touristy. We'll definitely be planning a return trip. Hawaiian Thunder provided all of the amenities that we were looking for with the pool, hot tub, game room, living space, and ocean views. It is a very well kept home. The key to the elevator is to have the cage door shut before calling it to your floor. You might find this helpful while moving in for the week. ;) I suggest having coolers and ice available to store your beverages, rather than using the refrigerators, as it took some time for them to recover after stocking for the week. We appreciated that the owner was accessible, attentive and a pleasure to work with. It was a dream vacation and we're grateful for the memories. :)

Excellent Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

A great beachfront facility with easy access to beach. Complimented by a large pool. Large bedrooms that are well accommodated. Game tables make it a great place for children and teens. An excellent large family vacation facility.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic time at Hawaiian Thunder. The home was clean, well maintained and very family friendly. We also had great interaction with the owner who was very responsive and accommodating to our arrival schedule. The entire family is still talking about the vacation and we would definitely rent this house again!

Great vacation at a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable visit at Hawaiian Thunder. There was enough room for our extended family to be together to eat or enjoy a game or movie but also places to go for privacy when needed. This is the first we have rented an ocean front and it was very convenient especially for the little ones to take back and forth. I would definitely recommend this home! Thanks for the memories!
