Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

My wife, kids and I stayed at the Tropical Ohana and could not have been more happy. If you want to taste true Hawaii living this is for you. The home was spotless clean and comfortable with wonderful views of Kailua Bay. The kitchen is very well appointed (combine that with Safeway and Walmart being 5 minutes down the hill) makes it a great place for preparing meals. We also enjoyed fresh fruit grown just outside the doors. The wild Turkeys and Pheasants makes your morning coffee on your private Lanai a great start to your days. An interesting note is that this is a extremely green home meaning that 100% of its electricity is provided via solar, we never would have known this had it not been for some routine maintenance that was done one day. Thank you Wendy and Harry for such a nice stay.

Beautiful peaceful property

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. The property was beautiful and we ate some delicious fruit and enjoyed the animals and listening to the birds. It was cool at night, which was great, and had a great ocean view. We would definitely stay here again!

Awesome place to get away from it all, but close enough to get to the center of everything in 10 min

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Felt like it was home away from home. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. They have snorkel gear, beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, etc. Fruit was awesome to have everyday. Would for sure book it again in a heartbeat

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the best. We love this place away from all the crowds. Private, very clean, and has all the amenities that you could ask for. We've been coming here since 2009. Definitely recommend this place and will be back!

Love to sit out on the lanai, drinking our coffee, watching the wildlife. The mornings are nice and cool.

Wendy and Harry are great, make us feel right at home. They are also helpful with things to do, places to go, and other activities we ask about.
