  • Perfect Hawaiian Family Vacation Home

    "This was our second family vacation to the Pa Hauoli House. We took our children and our eleven grand-kids to Hawaii for a family vacation celebrating our retirement. Just driving up the country road to the house is such a relaxing experience and it always feels like I have arrived in a tropical paradise. A common reaction of our children upon first seeing the house is, "Is this it? Are we really going to get to stay here?" From the huge yard and large patio (where we barbecued and I think ate every meal) to the stunning ocean view from the ocean side of the house, it doesn't get any better than this. We had an adult versus kids game of capture the flag on the football field size lawn. The house is well furnished with kitchen appliances and cookware, stocked with games, towels, surf boards and much more. A favorite spot to relax was sitting beneath the shade trees at beach edge and reading or watching the grand-kids playing in the surf and watching turtles coming up for air. The only problem was it was so relaxing I would drop my book as I nodded off and lose my place. The grand-kids were occupied for hours building a "survivor" shelter on the beach from palm fronds and drift wood. Even in what is considered a busy tourist month, we had miles of beach to ourselves. The house is close to Turtle Bay Resort so my sons and I were able to play golf at the Fazio and Palmer Courses, the kids played in the tide pools at "Shark's Cove" and the older ones had a thrill jumping off the rock at Waimea Beach. A real treat for us has been getting to know Bill and Nancy and their Ohana, the caretakers of the property. They are so helpful and attentive to ensure that everything was set for our large family. The quality of their service and friendly help for anything we needed makes this place even more of a treasure."

  • Comfortable, Relaxing and Memorable

    "We stayed at this beautiful beach front property and totally enjoyed our experience there. It was a clean, well maintained and inviting studio apartment as described in the listing. The queen bed was comfortable and the accommodations served us well. We received excellent customer service including emails and phone calls before our stay. We arrived at night by following very specific instructions sent to us. Once we arrived, the owner kindly showed us around the apartment and answered our questions. We also received a written sheet of instructions. We were contacted ahead of time to make sure that we would be amenable to cats on the property and we were. We enjoyed walks along the sandy beaches and snorkeling in an area we could walk to from the apartment. We saw the beautiful sunrise only a 1/4 mile walk away. We enjoyed eating at the Fiju Curry shack not far away and had Polynesian bread at Tita's. We loved our day at the Polynesian Cultural Center and went back again for free just to walk around again. We went to and enjoyed the Valley of the Temples and drove to the Punchbowl Military Cemetery. We went to the USS Arizona Memorial. We visited the L.D.S. Temple visitor's center. We love taking pictures and were seldom at a loss for a beautiful panorama or close up shot of the amazing ocean or vegetation of Hawaii. The waves were large at the North Shore and we watched surfers. We finally found and enjoyed watching the tortoises basking in the sunshine. We would highly recommend this property and in fact have already done it. We would like to return some time."

  • Wonderful family fun!

    "We absolutely loved our stay here! Our family group of 15- newborn to great-grandparents- was comfortably accommodated in the 4-bedroom and 1 studio. Geri and Ke'Alii were so friendly and helpful! They were available when we needed them (right next door), and went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The beach was a short walk away and it was amazing! There was a protected area perfect for the little ones, and farther down the bigger kids (and adults) loved boogie boarding and snorkeling. The beach was never crowded, and some of the days we practically had it to ourselves. We really appreciated being away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Even though we were in the"country", we were very close to groceries and supplies- very convenient. The on-site laundry facility was a lifesaver for our large group. The outdoor shower was great when returning from the beach. We loved the front porch! We frequently ate our evening meal out there and played card games. There was also a clothes line which was so handy for hanging wet swim suits and beach towels. I could go on and on! We really had a wonderful time! Mahalo, Geri and Ke'Alii!"

  • Very good value (cost + space = good value)

    "I often read reviews and am blown away by the number of people who don't exactly understand that there is a difference between price and value. This bungalow isn't a high end resort, there are no granite counter tops or fancy amenities. The price for the area also doesn't go as high either as places that have those types of things as part of the overall value. This is a quaint, simple bungalow in a relatively good location to several little towns. that makes this a very good value for what we needed. It was super clean and the owner was easy to work with. We were only there for 2 days, so we didn't use the space long-term to really identify if there were any issues really. We didn't encounter any and the owner seemed very accessible if we had any questions. One super positive thing I loved...clearly if people left items from their stay, those things were kept as kind of a "pass it on" mentality. I loved that because I got sun burned the day we arrived and there was Aloe already under the sink. It was great to not have to go buy a whole bottle for a little immediate relief. (we left it there for the next person of course:)) There is a very quiet, private beach. We didn't explore it a lot, the part right when you walk in is rocky. It looked sandy further down. We mainly just wanted to be able to drive south from the location to explore that side of the island (if you really like nature/simple outdoor activities, we recommend to spend as little time as possibly over by Honolulu....this side is way better!). Easy access to a drug store and some good food and several beaches in the area."
