Really nice and secluded.

Spacious with really beautiful outdoor space. Great location. The owner was super accommodating to extra requests that I had, and was also very friendly. I would highly recommend.

Celebrated 30th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long stay at Hololani. Everything was as described in the listing--no surprises. Communications with the rental office were prompt. The location is pretty good. It is about 1/2 mile to Poipu beach. I went on foot almost every day to snorkel and we drove when we had beach gear to haul. About 1/2 mile in the other direction was Shipwreck beach (by the Hyatt) but due to high surf no safe swimming. However, right there is the start of the Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail which had gorgeous views. The farther you get down the trail, the farther you want to go. We were also able to explore the island with day trips to the north shore and west to Waimea canyon.

Other general recommendations: Blue Dolphin Sunset Cruise, Hukilau Lanai (nice dinner), and the farmer's market in Koloa (fresh fruit for breakfast).

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place! We were here on our honeymoon for 2 weeks. My only complaints are the cook-top, it takes forever to cook or heat things up but the grill has a burner that gets much hotter. Also the toilet paper was the cheapest stuff I've ever used! But overall it was great! We did lots of exploring on the island, scuba diving, hiking, helicopter ride, more scuba diving! We would come back here if we ever get the chance!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house to stay in. Had all of the amenities we needed for our honeymoon. Owner kept in contact before and after the stay. We saw the whole island. Took a dinner cruise around Napali Coast, Drove to the north shore and hit the beaches. This is the perfect place to do it all from. We went to 4 different beaches within 5 minutes of the house! Loved our stay and can not wait to get back!

Very Happy at 35 Years

  • 5 of 5

YES!! We had a fabulous time for our 35 anniversary. Your apartment is so well equipped with everything we needed and it is absolutely gorgeous. The property is even more beautiful than the pictures. It is very peaceful, clean and well organized. We found ourselves up early with the roosters in prayer and communing and in the evening relaxing on the bedroom lanai for a wind down after a active day on the island. We learned our way around the island and found all the activities we were interested in with ease. The notes, tips, guides, and wealth of information and magazines left by the owner were very helpful in our planning each day from sun up to sun down. We left no stone unturned. We are planning a return for ourselves and our adult children, and are spreading the word in our hometown. Looking forward to our next visit
