The Best Place we could have rented

  • 4 of 5

We loved our two week stay in this beautiful, peaceful spot. If you are looking for a luxury resort close to nightlife, this is not for you. What you get here is a nice home where you can make meals (note:no dishwasher, but everything provided to wash by hand), do laundry if you need to(need own detergent) and enjoy the beautiful countryside. We had our coffee every morning on the deck, soaking in the amazing view and listening to the birds. Regret we didn't go to the small beach across the road the first day, so we could have also make that a start for each day we were there. They provide chairs, snorkels, kids toys for beach and have outside shower for when you come back.There are many beautiful beaches within easy driving distance. The best beach nearby for snorkeling is at Turtle Bay Resort.

It is about an hours drive from the airport, and you will need rental car to stay here, but is a great jumping off point for exploring the Island.. The North Shore has so much to offer. We took day trips and spent a day in Pearl Harbour and a day in Waikiki and were very glad to get back to our lovely, laid back retreat. It is close to the Polynesian Cultural Center, which was a fun way to spend the day, ending with a luau and show. (Get the Ambassador package so you get a tour guide.)

There is no air conditioning, but the fans work well and it cools down to a comfortable temperature for sleeping at night. The house is roomy and could easily accommodate a large family. The extra bathrooms are unusual for rentals here and much appreciated.

My only complaint, is that while the livingroom furniture looked nice, it was not very comfortable to sit on for long. That being said, we spent a lot of time on the wonderful deck, out on adventures, or eating at the table so didn't sit there a lot.

We had a wonderful vacation and I would definitely recommend this place for people who want the type of holiday we had. It's NOT for people who want to party, have maid service or want modern, urban setting. It is ideal for families and people who want a relaxing getaway in the country. I would love to return to Oahu someday and would definitely stay here again

Terrible run down property

  • 1 of 5

We all have been very disappointed with the state of the property.

The pictures on your website do not convey the actual condition of the property/facilities.

We do not live in conditions such as the one this house presented.

We arrived late on Friday night and had no where else to go otherwise we would have left.

The condition of the cupboards in the kitchen is very poor and not fit for use.

The blue tape around the windows was unacceptable. There is dampness and mould in the house and in the main bathroom which is evidenced by the peeling paint surrounding the window frame . Kindly note this is a health hazard.

If the above conditions had been known at the time of booking the property we would not have booked.

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Punaluu Getaway was everything we expected and more! The location is phenomenal! The sunrise is beautiful over the water and the mountains in the back are amazing. The open air feel and sound of the birds is a nice environment. Listing description is accurate, property was very clean and well-maintained. It was very easy to contact the local manager and get access to the house.

I highly recommend the Crouching Lion Hike for sunrise (very close by). We also enjoyed Shark's Cove, Turtle Bay, and Kualoa Ranch. My favorite excursion was renting Kayaks to go to Chinaman's Hat and hiking to the top. The 360 view at the top of Chinaman's Hat was unbelievable!

Overall, I would highly recommend this property and will likely stay here again if I return to Oahu!

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house. Well appointed with far more than we expected from the loaded kitchen to the full range of beach equipment/toys. Fantastic master suite, so much room all around and finally an amazing location. Just steps from what was essentially a private beach (as in, we had it all to ourselves). We loved our stay and would love to come again. We would also enthusiastically recommend to any large family who wants to be together and cook for themselves (we had 7). Would also like to note that the booking process was very painless with no problems or stress.

Great rural location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Hualla. The accommodation is right across from a small beach. The sand is not perfect but it still makes for fun days with the kids. Theres also a little outdoor shower located at the house which is nice to hose the kids down after their swim. The drive to the Polynesian Cultural Center is short so we had the opportunity to go twice. It's also a relatively short drive to the North Shore where we got to watch a portion of surf competition. We also went for a shopping day at Haleiwa which comes highly recommended. All in all the drives from this location is what made it a highlight for us. A lot of these drives would have been far too long with the kids had we left from Honolulu.

As for the property, it's rather large and can accommodate quite the crowd. There's plenty of bathrooms as well. The kitchen is fairly well stocked but, could use a blender for some delicious Hawaiian smoothies. It's set on a gorgeous piece of property with moutain views of the back deck and ocean views of the front deck. The grounds are very well maintained and sit on a farm. A few things to be noted would be the driveway, gecko friends, and cleanliness.

The driveway is RIGHT before a sharp bend, so getting out is a little hard. Walking across the road with the kids is also a small concern. My kids are small enough that I was always with them. However if they were a little older and more independent, I would advise that an adult supervised the street crossing.

Geckos do live in living room. We loved it and thought it was fun for the kids. They are harmless and run away at the site of any person including my 1 year old daughter. However they do poop and leave it in the living/dinning room.

Cleanliness is a small issue. My wife and I like things quite clean. This place is good but not great. There is a little gecko poop that comes up as mentioned before. The coffee filters were not cleaned and were moldy. Just general dust and build up from an older build. The place could us a little love and care as well. There's paint the is peeling from the walls in the living room. The screen doors work as the see fit. The back set of stairs is blocked off which makes me concerned about the front set (however there is nothing wrong with the front set). The shower in the guest bedroom is very touchy with water temperatures.

Every place comes with it's ups and downs. There was A LOT more ups than downs. We really enjoyed our stay and it would recommend it.
