About the property

House, 1 Bdrm/bath for couple + Two day beds with four twin mattresses, + futons

October and November are still lovely and warm.

Perfect for your impromptu get away! PARADISE FOUND!

For COUPLES, FAMILIES and CHILDREN on our perfect Beach.

Allow yourself the luxury of a perfect Hawaiian vacation. Nestled in a private neighborhood between access to the outside world and the most delicious pristine white sand beach that your toes will ever sink into. Just a few steps down our private beach lane and you will find yourself transported to another world.

A coral reef protects the shoreline so that gentle waves lap at your feet. As you stroll past the calm waters and the natural tidal pool, fondly known as "alligator pond" you will have access to deeper water and larger waves for the more adventurous swimmer.

We will guide you to fulfilling your every reasonable wish, from the best local entertainment, ie. the Polynesian Cultural Center, one mile away, sightseeing, sports activities, fine dining, Turtle Bay Resort, theater and more. We even offer a privately arranged air tour of Oahu and/or flight lesson if you have ever entertained that dream or for a more relaxed experience in-house professional massage or aromatherapy!

Just 31.5 miles and a mostly shoreline view drive from Honolulu Intl. airport, the turquoise waters will follow and welcome as you approach your vacation destination. The private entrance leads to a spacious 20 by 30 living area opening to a lovely tropical garden. The exquisitely appointed classic Hawaiiana decor with its open room allows for a feeling of freedom and relaxed flow. A large comfortable sleeping area with king bed separates from the main living area. Included are four twin beds in the main living area and futons to accommodate up to a total of six + in the main suite. If the 'simple life' is more to your taste, waken in the morning to the songs of Hawaiian birds playing in our Norfolk pine and 18 palms. Or listen for the soft whispering of the surf in the late evening as you stroll to the water for a tidal pool swim. You may never want to leave.

E Komo Mai, we welcome you with Aloha on the first morning of your arrival with an array of fresh fruit and island pastries or we will stock your fridge with items of your choice. As your hosts and twenty seven year residents of Oahu we offer you the best of our experience and love of the islands. Let us share our Hawaii with you.

Keywords: Private luxury Suite for a couples retreat. Total accommodation SLEEPS 6 IN BEDS, additional futons available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Lani,



Thank you again for your hospitality and the wonderful vacation on Oahu. Our family really enjoyed your suite which fit our needs very well. It is decorated very tastefully to fit the Hawaiian theme. We found the floorplan very open and spacious with ample room for 4 of us. The beds were comfortable, and we loved the large mirrors on the closet which helped us three women apply make-up when the bathroom was occupied. We visited during the Olympics and really enjoyed watching the events on the large, flat-screen TV. It was especially helpful to have some of the basics like flour and sugar, ketchup, etc. in the cupboards and refrigerator when it came time to cook a little. The washer and dryer were a big plus especially with the ocean so near. We could wash the sand and surf off outside under warm water on the lanai before entering. We have wonderful memories of our walks down the beach with the surf coming in and children throwing balls out so they could watch them come back in. We enjoyed staying so near the Polynesian Cultural Center which allowed us to return more than once and really get a better understanding of the various Pacific Island cultures. We were glad we chose to stay away from the busy downtown area with all its traffic and crowds. The mountains and views are tremendous on the east side of Oahu. Thank you again for your suggestions on places to see and eat while there.



Always,

Susan and Shawn

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed at Lani and Kent's place for 5 nights. Last time when we visited Oahu, we stayed on the northwest side where there aren't that many places to see so we chose Lani and Kent's place this time with 5 star reviews and location. We were right about the location. It was located conveniently to suit my family's needs. Like everybody said, grocery store was so close so you can literally walk to it and many other places my family wanted to visit were close enough like North Shore and other east side places. We especially liked that we could walk to the beach which was quiet and peaceful and the outside shower in the lanai that we can use to wash off sand from the beach. It even had hot water. We will definitely stay again if we chose northwest side. Highly recommend!

Aloha Spirit, Impeccable Accommodations in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an incredible time, the accommodations were perfect for us and our family. Great location to so many things we were wanting, as well as steps away from an excellent beach for the family. Our kids said their beach was one of the best we saw! Our hosts were exceptional! Brava! We will come back again! For sure! Thanks!

Kids Friendly home

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for our Family of six people. The location is perfect. We were close to grocery stores, many restaurants and food truck. There are beautiful beaches that are kids friendly just 15 minutes away from the house. We absolutely loved our time there. Thank you, Lani for being attentive and let us use your home :)

Very nice private apt. Comfortable beds, full kitchen and even a washer/dryer.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need for a pleasant stay! Lots of condiments so you don't have to buy a lot of grocery items. Just a short walk to the beach and very close to Polynesian Cultural Center, Turtle Bay and other north shore attractions. Great to come back to such a comfortable place after a full day of site-seeing or beach.

Comfortable and inexpensive

  • 5 of 5

This was a comfortable and inexpensive place to stay. They don't add any fees like most rentals. The nightly fee is everything you pay. It was very convenient to have spices and other supplies available. The home had everything we needed. We loved the short walk to the beach and the short drive to so many places we wanted to visit.
