Beautiful location, great property!

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and well-maintained. Proximity to the beach was exceptional, & nearby to shopping and town.

Bob and Steve were friendly and helpful.

Excellent séjour

  • 4 of 5

L'appartement est super: grandes pièces et tres grand balcon bien meublé avec vue incroyable. Tout près de la plage de snorkeling ,hélas fermée trois jours après notre arrivée ...

Notre hôte et Bob nous ont tres bien accueillis et conseillés et ont toujours été tres gentils.

J'aurais mis 5 étoiles s'il n'y avait pas eu un petit problème de plafonds ouverts: en effet, les chambres ne sont pas complètement fermées en haut pour que l'air circule. C'est très agréable mais, du coup, on entend tout d'une chambre à l'autre ( les salles de bain, elles, sont bien fermées ) . Nous étions avec un jeune couple et mon mari ronfle! C'était donc gênant pour eux et peu intime. Ceci n'est sûrement pas un problème pour un couple avec jeunes enfants .

Je recommande vraiment cette location super et j'aimerais revenir un jour!

Great view

  • 5 of 5

This house a a great view, if you rent the top floor, 38 stairs up. Our friends described the house as motel 6 with a fantastic view for sunsets. We enjoyed air flow of the top floor. There is no sound privacy between the bedrooms. Bob and Steve were great hosts.

Best location for snorkelling/surfing and a lovely home for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

First off - Steve was a wonderful host! He met us at our "home away from home" to open up and help with any questions which was really appreciated since we arrived on a late flight.

The house was clean, comfortable and well outfitted. Our favorite part was the open design of the kitchen and the double patio door access onto the deck. We spent much of our time, while at the house, enjoying the deck that overlooks the ocean and found it great for viewing the world famous Hawaiian Sunsets!

The location was superb - right across from the best snorkelling beach on the Island! This became a daily favourite activity. It was also steps away from a great surf lesson shop and a short drive to groceries, drug store, etc.

We loved our holiday here and would highly recommend it as a top place to stay!

Thanks again to Steve and Carrie for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Comfortable, friendly vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Our host was very helpful, friendly, and generous.

The flat had a view of the ocean, a great place to sit in the shade and read in the morning.

We could walk across the street to see sea turtles, snorkel, and let our grandsons play in the sand.

We wanted for nothing. Snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler, were all available for our use.

The location was out of the worst of the traffic of the town, but with a nearby grocery store.

The flat wasn't fancy, but perfectly fit our needs with 8 people ranging in age from 2 to 67.
