  • Perfect site for our family camps

    "Our family has a longstanding tradition of camping at Malaekahana -- in one of those rickety, old cabins run by Friends of Malaekahana. We were heartbroken when those cabins were torn down three years ago. Luckily for us, our daughter found this beautiful beach house, just a little ways down the beach from our old stomping grounds. And it is absolutely perfect!!! A previous reviewer described it as "a little run down; could use a makeover." We beg to disagree -- we feel the house is perfect in every way. It's not to supposed to look or feel like a hotel. It's a wonderful beach house where families can have fun together -- enjoying the beach, sharing meals out on the deck overlooking the ocean, playing in the beautiful backyard, roasting marshmallows in the fireplace, making jigsaw puzzles, playing games/cards and just enjoying each others' company. The house is also wheelchair accessible which allowed my husband to join us for our best camp ever. Mahalo! Mari's mom"

  • Exactly as pictured!

    "We just returned from a wonderful week long stay at this beach house. The best way to explain it is that it's exactly as it looks in the photos! The bedrooms were spacious and with 3 teenage children, we felt like we all had our own space to go to after being out sightseeing each day. We enjoyed the common area for family puzzles (which are in the closet, along with a few games) and had a couple of relaxing meals at home. There's a nice assortment of snorkeling equipment for several people, boogie boards, a few life jackets and sand toys stored under the deck. Our favorite thing about this location was the wonderful ocean breeze that came in all 3 of the patio sliding doors! No, you do NOT need air conditioning, as there are plenty of fans and ocean breezes to keep you cool. It is a quiet location, yet just 2 minutes from a Foodland Grocery store and several stores. It takes a bit longer to get places in Hawaii than we expected due to the twisty roads, but when you have an ocean view on one side and gorgeous mountain views on the other, it goes by quickly! Bitsy was responsive when we had a question during our stay and clearly notified us about everything ahead of time. It's less than 10 minutes to Turtle Bay Resort, where we went for a nicer dinner one evening. The beach by the house is private and beautiful!! We enjoyed the monk seal that came up several days to sun herself. The waves on the beach are excellent for boogie boarding, but some other nearby beaches are better for snorkeling. We loved our stay in this relaxing, quiet beach house and would definitely stay there again!!"

  • Spacious house, convenient location

    "We had an amazing time here, enough room for our extended family (7 adults, 1 child, 1 baby), the house had everything we needed, was clean, close to the beach, and short drive from Polynesian centre, Shark cove, Turtle beach, Waimea valley etc. Only downside for us was wished the front verandah door and the back door had a screen as we would have liked to keep it open all the time to help with airflow, also wished Kahea had been available for us to rent surfboards from too, he was away. But besides all that, we loved it, would highly recommend, and would definitely stay here again on our next holiday in Hawaii :-)"

  • Oh how we loved the North Shore

    "I took my family and an old friend to stay at Malaekahana house and we all loved it and the location far away from the congestion of Honolulu and Waikiki. The beaches on the North Shore are wonderful with bath tub temperature water in June. This house is a must for larger groups - right on the ocean and beautifully equipped. Little shopping town of Hale'iwa close as well as Wiamea Falls and botanic gardens. Close as well to the surfing beaches for a winter trip. Food trucks were good which my grandkids liked plus Polynesian Cultural Center about 4 miles away. Not one of us had one negative thing to say about this vacation and the beautiful Soul Surfer house was 90% of the reason why. Good owners and managers - very helpful plus a neighbor to answer a few questions."
