Access to your part of the house including back yard and deck. No access to the main house or the adjacent vacation rental suite. Access to all the beach gear and shared washer and dryer. There is plenty of street parking in front of the house.
We live in the main house with our 3 children who love to play and interact with guests. We love to meet new people and we are always happy to talk story and give you tips on things to do and places to see and time permitting, bbq together. We respect your privacy and interaction is completely optional. We are always a phone call away should you need anything.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
In general this is a very quite home as we work during the day and our kids are at school. However you may hear our kids from the adjacent backyard playing in our family pool after 5:30 pm and on weekends. I also offer ISR swim survival lessons out of our pool Monday through Friday from 3:30pm until 5:30pm. Drowning prevention is a main concern for our children here in Hawaii as we are surrounded by water and I am truly proud of what I do. You are always welcome to come and observe my lessons and I would be happy to teach your child for FREE for the duration of your stay. While you cannot see our pool from your private backyard you are able to hear my little students who are working hard to learn to save their lives should they ever find themselves in the water alone. While many of them are happy swimmers, there are always a few who cry at various degree and can be heard from your part of the house. I have noticed that in most cases our guests are at the beach during these hours, however if you are looking for a quite time between the hours of 3:30pm and 5:30pm this may not be the right place for you.
