Hidden Beach front home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment located on the beach front at the bottom of Hawaii loa ridge near a small beach park. Exactly what we were looking for away from the business of Waikiki.

We stayed in the 1 bedroom downstairs. The Home provides 8 fans to keep cool. (2 of which have a cooling function.). My husband who usually can’t sleep without AC was perfectly fine with fans and windows cracked.

They also provide cooking utensils, 2 frypans, bbq grill, kayaks, surfboards, & floating rings for free!!

Beach: the home provides beach loungers on the beach. The water is shallow for a mile out but has a lot of coral. The ocean is Very safe with no waves, Perfect for relaxing.

So relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This house was casual and comfortable. You are literally on the beach. Relax and don’t worry if you have to sweep the sand up daily. It’s the best.

This place is great, if............................

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time here, fantastic location, right on the beach, if you are easy going and don't sweat the small stuff, like us, this place is ideal. We had 5 people staying and everyone over 6ft 4 inches but no one complained about the space or sleeping arrangements. Not much space to cook but there are enough places around to eat and most of the time we were too tired to stay up late. I only had one stupid question and this was answered quickly by phone.

The only issue I had was the trash was emptied during out stay and made clearing up at the end of the stay a little yukky with piling plastic bags outside,

I would definatley book again, by grown up sons loved this place.

As advertised! Quaint little apartment ON the beach!

  • 4 of 5

great little spot on the beach, easy access to some near by conveniences. The only thing I would suggest to make this place absolutely outstanding, would be a portable AC unit! The fans did ok but it was HOT! Other than that no complaints, and no problems! Loved it! We'll rent again... and again!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

The home is literally right on the ocean. Small sandy beach and the ocean. The home is in a more affluent neighborhood in Hawaii. Get there in the daytime as the home may not be very well lighted and that can be overwhelming. I recommend bringing your own towels and beach towels as they are very limited in the home. Perhaps the owner could add another tv to the bedroom for nighttime viewing. The home can also be a bit warm even with the fans that are included. Over all the studio is exactly as listed. Will easily sleep up to 6 people or more. Shops and scenic views are within easy location of the home. Lisa, the property manager is great and very attentive to any issues you may have. The owner also provides use of a kayak and laundry facilities with detergents. Everything you need is provided with many extras. Worth a stay with friends. The waves, the view from the lanai is amazingly breathtaking. I will definitely try to stay in this studio again whenever I visit. Mahalo!!
