Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the townhouse. Views from the lofted master bedroom are wonderful, and the location is great - literally right on the beach! Palm trees give it a secluded feel, although you can walk to dinner and shopping. Owner was very helpful.



Thanks,

Peter

Book now. This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 7 beautiful days in paradise and can't wait to come back! We could not be happier with our decision to stay in this home. Plenty of room for a family of 5, fantastic beach access, great lawn and trees for the kids to play in, amazing sunsets, and so many whale, dolphin and turtle sightings that our kids didn't bother to look up after the first 3 days. I had a large turtle surface about 8 feet from me in the water. Our kids are 7, 5 and 3- this beach is perfect for little kids. Tons of places within walking distance. I would have worried if I had any children under the age of 2 1/2, the stairs down from the kitchen would have been a big concern with early walkers. However, they did have baby gates there.

We look forward to returning soon!

3rd-time is definitely a charm!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at Doug’s place and God willing it won’t be our last! The home itself, the beach at your front door, proximity to everything else you’ll want to see on the island, and the views from your own lanai to watch sunsets, breaching whales and turtles make for an unforgettable experience.

Mahalo Doug for opening up your treasured beach home to us!

What an amazing week!! We felt like family!

  • 5 of 5

We found this listing after deciding on a different property and were very excited to book it. Upon realizing the home did not have AC, we were very skeptical but dug deeper because of the reviews we read. We called Doug and he was very gracious in answering questions, assuring us the lack of AC was a non issue. Long story short.... we LOVED our stay there and concur that AC in an oceanfront property like this would have been a drawback...

Imagine a big beautiful bedroom... windows all around.... ocean sound and breezes with billowing curtains around you as you drift off to sleep... 50 steps away is the ocean and all you need is right here!!

Open the doors and relax as the trade winds provide all the comfort you need. What a great design that takes advantage of the surroundings

You can go down the beach and pay the same price or more for a condo or hotel room, but you won’t get this kind of experience. Already looking for a week in 2019!

Thanks for welcoming us into your home, Doug and making us feel like family!

What a great view

  • 5 of 5

We agreed...after coming to the Islands for the past 40 years....this property won hands down for the ocean setting. Lanai very nice for sipping a cold beverage and watching the sunset. Very comfortable for 2 couples or family with older children. Property was well maintained.

Just the right place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our Family with three adult kids enjoyed the house and the beach in front very much. For us it was just the right place to stay. The house is very well equipped and it’s so great to watch all the picture of the owner’s family to grow over the last 40 years. Congratulation for this bold move in 1977 to build this fantastic place right at the beach when nothing else was there.

I wish the owner family very nice years ahead at this perfect place.

The perfect escape worth beach access just steps away.

  • 5 of 5

The bed was a little hard but everything else was so great, we barely noticed. A beautiful property in a wonderful little community.
