We were so pleased with the loft apartment! It exceeded our expectations! UNFORGETTABLE vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to describe our vacation experience. We did just about everything Oahu has to offer. Our most cherished time was spent at our 'Homeaway paradise'. We went kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling, just sitting and watching the gorgeous view. My husband couldn't get enough of the sea turtles while I snorkeled for the little fish!

We could literally walk for miles on the sand bar. It was just unbelievable.

We met our neighbors staying in the same house but separate quarters Two couples from Australia and another from Alaska. We even sat out LATE one evening visiting with them and had a blast!!!

Yao was the perfect host and had everything we need, and I mean EVERYTHING!!!

We waaaaaaaaay over packed for this trip and stayed 8 days which was perfect for us.

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the upstairs unit, which was very roomy, clean, and comfortable. Everything we could've needed for cooking was in the kitchen, we were able to save money by cooking full meals most days there. Yao was a wonderful host, very knowledgable about the area and helped us answer whatever questions we had. Her and Paul were very friendly and made it an amazing week. The other 3 units were occupied our whole stay and we barely even noticed, it was such a relaxing and beautiful place. Being able to use her snorkel gear, kayaks, SUP and having the washer and dryer was absolutely wonderful. Most days we just wanted to hang around the house rather than explore the island because it was such a great area. We even had sea turtles come within 15-20 feet of shore around sunset almost every night which was awesome to see! We can't wait to come back with our family and kids!

Fabulous Experience

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and right on the water's edge. Very peaceful. Yao is a gracious host and has everything you need to go play in the water...snorkeling gear, reef shoes, a canoe, stand-up paddle boards, towels, and such. We brought our grandson and he would have been perfectly happy staying forever! Us as well. We'll be back!

We really like this place.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before, and hope to stay at Yao's again. It's very easy living, partly because it's Hawaii , but also because Yao is an excellent host, she's there if you need her, but you probably won't. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Location on Kanehoe bay has many interesting aspects to it, with easy access to the town.

It's all very enjoyable.
