  • 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."

  • Awesome Beach House!

    "My family and I stayed here this past weekend, we enjoyed our stay so much that my family is already wanting to plan to go back in December! People have to understand that for the price of this rental, it will have "minor" flaws. I say "minor" because if you expect a newer renovation (i.e. renovated within the past 2 years) then there is NO way the rental price for this place would be what it is. If you want a newly remodeled beach rental, I hope you expect to pay at least $800-$1000 a night. Addressing the complaints in previous reviews (which made me have some reservations on renting this rental): -there being too few blankets. My family and I treated this like a camping trip so we brought sleeping bags. However, when arriving we arrived to see the beds were topped off with blankets in each room which would be sufficient enough. During our stay, it was windy and cold but we found ourselves sleeping with our sleeping bag unzipped and not needing to be covered. -The kitchen dirty. During our stay, we found the kitchen to be up to date. The counter tops were clean and there was more than enough dishes and cooking ware for our stay. The only complaint I do have: - There were a LOT of flies but that is out of the owners control. If anything, sliding doors could be added on the other two sliding glass doors to let the breeze in from all angles of the living room and to limit the flies from coming in. Other than those minor flaws, we really did enjoy our stay. The location is AWESOME! The house was totally fine and totally reasonable for the price John charges. This rental totally met our expectations and more. The beach was nice and really appreciated the privacy in front of the house. Can't wait till our next staycation at this rental!"

  • Great Property in a Magical Place

    "The home was exactly what our Group of 6 needed. Everything was exactly as we had read, and communication with the owners was easy & clear. The house was spotless, & had all of the amenities we could think of. The location was just minutes from some of the best North Shore dive & snorkel spots. The Elevated patio was a treat, and we spent many evenings there enjoying the sunset. We would absolutely recommend this to friends & would stay there again in a heartbeat."

  • 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"
