"We couldn't be more pleased with our experience. This was a first for us - to book through VRBO - so we didn't know what to expect. No worries though - since this vacation rental exceeded our expectations. The photos and everything that was written about this unit was spot on. It is located on a beautiful beach where you can swim and snorkel, lay under a palm tree, sit under an umbrella table or take a dip in the pool. Just beautiful views of the ocean from the lanai and the constant sound of the ocean was very relaxing. The unit is perfect for two - it is equipped with everything! You can come with a bathing suit, pair of shorts and toothbrush and everything else is accounted for. The unit has A/C (no need to use it), a washer/dryer, movies, books, umbrellas, ponchos, fans, sand chairs, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, toilet paper, towels, and a wide variety of cooking tools and appliances - and spices and condiments. The unit was very clean and nicely decorated - very pleasant. The unit is situated nicely on Oahu - close enough to Honolulu (although we only went once to go to Pearl Harbor), but really in the "country" with relaxed lifestyle and ability to hop in the car to explore. This is a great place to escape - the building has signs everywhere saying "Quiet" and "Quiet, people resting" and everyone adheres to it. There were plenty of people there and kids, too - but it was quiet and peaceful. A busy day on the beach might have 15 people. The building also has a security guard and secure elevators. The owner provided an entire binder about the building, location and sites and this was very helpful. Great places to eat nearby - 2 Bald Guys, Papa Ole's, Giovanni's Shrimp truck. We only booked two events prior to arriving: Pearl Harbor (half day tour through E Noa tours - great) and Chief's Luau (spectacular and warm and welcoming - we were touched by the experience) - otherwise we just explored. We were so sad to leave - are hearts are in Hawaii and staying at this unit made for an unforgettable experience. Mahalo!"
