  • The right choice

    "We loved Happy Haole. Not only a beautiful and accommodating home, but a perfect location on the island. Away from the congestion on Waikiki and a perfect view of Kaneohe Bay, Chinaman's Hat and the Ko'olau mountains. The open floor plan and the breeze off the ocean was perfect. We can't say enough good things about our 7 day stay and the owner Shelby was terrific. I did a lot of research and we drove by many of the homes we were considering and we are so happy we chose this home at this location. You will not be disappointed. No one in our party of eight were. Enjoy your stay. Brent"

  • Tidy and convenient

    "We enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai! The location is excellent with the bus stop right there. Although a bit dated, the apartment was tidy with nice views and very enjoyable. The bed was very comfortable and linens were good quality. We also appreciate the helpfulness and responsiveness of the owners. We intend to come back again and we are recommending it to our friends."

  • Ideal for Families with Young Kids

    "Our family of three (mom, dad, 2-year old toddler) stayed for a week in June 2016. We had a few days of obligations near Honolulu and the rest of the time did not need to be anywhere in particular. Several days we barely left the house - at morning low tide the lagoon is almost dry. Our daughter used it as a giant sandbox (toys provided by the landlord) and tried and tried again to catch the fish and crabs that congregated in the small pool at the foot of the breakwater. At hightide the waves would crash over the breakwater and make the lagoon into a safe and enjoyable wave pool that is safe for even very young kids. We never used the kayaks or snorkeling gear but the reef beyond the breakwater looked beautiful and we saw many neighbors fishing and paddleboarding out there. Being able to watch the moods of the ocean throughout the day was mesmerizing. Being able to go straight down to the beach without having to load a car or pack a bag, and being able to clean off in the outdoor shower before coming back in, took away so much stress and unpleasantness. While the location may seem a bit remote by Oahu standards, nothing is more than an hour away, and we found the quiet isolation a welcome respite from the busier side of the island. As some of the other reviews suggest, the house itself is not in pristine shape, but the location and value proposition cannot be beat. Would you rather be in a beautiful Waikiki hotel room several blocks from the beach or in a perfectly nice house that is literally on top of the beach? Easy answer for our family. We hope to come back someday and enjoy more of the water activities with older kids."

  • Breathtakingly beautiful

    "This house is an absolute gem. My favorite part about it was the view in the backyard. We let our kids stay in the bedroom while my husband and I slept on the futon in the living room...because the view and the breeze were THAT good! We would wake up to the birds singing and the sight of the misty mountain tops of Kualoa. It was unbelievable! LaRona is very sweet, prompt to answer any questions, and she is very easy to work with! She accommodated all of our needs during our week's stay and she checked on us to see if there was anything we needed! The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and glasses, etc. The fridge has lots of space. There is no air conditioning, which made me worried at first, but the wind circulated through the windows very well and we slept comfortably every night! The futon was comfortable, as were all of the other beds. There is a spacious washer and dryer. The lot is very private! There are neighbors but everyone was quiet, so we respectfully were quiet as well. There is a beach just feet from the end of the driveway! The road is a little busy so we didn't venture there with our young children much, but it was beautiful! I can't wait to vacation here again in the future. I do not have a single negative thing to say about this property or the customer service of LaRona or the location or ANYTHING! I couldn't have imagined a more amazing place to stay and I am so thankful for the owners who allowed us to share their piece of heaven. Thank you!"
