We had a lovely stay at this efficient little condo. The room is well equipped and efficiently uses the space provided. The building has a communal vibe as the lawn and beach front are shared by the occupants of all of the rooms. My only critique would be the lack of air conditioning - we were in the middle room, so it was difficult to get a cross breeze.
The view from the patio is beautiful and exactly as advertised in the photos. We especially loved the inclusion of the water toys for sunrise/late afternoon kayaking. The kayaking was priceless as we were inches from sea turtles and reef fish. Great location for windward side activities.
Thanks so much for staying with us! We enjoyed having you, and yes, you beat us to the punch on the AC. We've had that on the calendar for some time now and are currently upgrading all of our units with their own AC.
Please come back and visit again!
Couldn't actually swim at the beachfront but overall very nice spot. It's very shallow for a long ways out. Once you get passed all that then you have deeper waters and a huge sand bar where tourists like too hang out at. Very cool. Not too private also. Neighbors can see right into your room if curtains aren't closed and not much room inside either. Overall stay was good. You get what you pay for
Charming quiet getaway
This was very easy to find and Roman was waiting outside for us on arrival. We were in the center unit downstairs which had a phenomenal view of the mountains and China mans hat for the bed. There is a mini fridge and a hot plate and a grill outside so you can definitely cook on your own there. I would recommend buying a bag or two of ice if you plan on making any cocktails. There was a small cooler in our studio as well as more in the laundry room. There was plenty of kayaks or boards to use for everyone on the property and we saw several large sea turtles right outside the reef (about a 3 minute paddle).
It was a great quiet spot to relax and if you choose to go out be prepared to drive 20-30 minutes for a nice restaurant.
Roman was a great host and offered for us to stay late since he did not have another guest arriving the day we were set to check out. He even offered for us to come back and use the hose to rinse our shoes after our muddy and raining hike after we had already left for the day!
I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet place to unwind and have a little fun on the water! Lots of hiking nearby too.
We had a wonderful stay at Koolau Kaneohe. Roman greeted us when we arrived and made us feel so welcome. He made sure we had everything we needed. The view was spectacular and the room was upscale, very clean, well maintained and equipped with everything we needed. They have a "borrow room" that has everything you could want including quality snorkel gear, kayaks, paddle boards, boogie boards as well as the basics such as sunhats and water shoes. You could launch the kayaks right from the yard. The lanai had comfortable furniture and ours was undercover which protected us from the rain and the sun. We will definitely rent from them again when we return to Oahu. So much better than staying in Waikiki!
Great location right on the water
Roman was very helpful and a great host. The location was great. Definitely plan on a day to use the provided kayaks to go out in the bay to the sand bar!
We had a great stay. Right on the Bay
We had a great stay the rental is right on the bay and Roman has provided everything you need to enjoy the water. We went kayaking every day he even has numerous sizes of beach shoes/hats and snorkel gear for you to enjoy the reef right outside your door. We saw Turtles. Great location with easy access to anywhere on the island. Quiet at night, the place was perfect.
We hope to come back again.
