"Hard to put into words how beautiful this home and grounds are! Having never been to Hawaii we left the location to our Daughter-in-laws & they without a doubt found the perfect spot for our family & my wife & me to celebrate our 50th Wedding anniversary with our 2 sons & their children - one grandson also celebrated his birthday. As we opened the redwood gate we say the beautiful curving driveway with flowers & fruit trees along with a beautifully landscaped yard for family activities! Then we saw the Home - as beautiful as in the pictures - we were stopped in our tracks as we saw each of the 3 sleeping areas, each perfect to be together yet to have privacy as needed. The deck gave glorious views of the ocean, tennis courts, fountains/gazebo, rainbows (at least 2 times a day) & the mountains. The kitchen was furnished with everything we could need + some staples that every cook needs but typically doesn't have or purchases for a week long stay! The owner, Gregory, gave wonderful directions to Costco & to 'our home', met us & graciously showed us around & met every need we had, plus gave us wonderful advice & guidance. The walk to the almost private beach was easy, the waves were great, the late November water was warm & the hot tub on the upper deck was so refreshing after a swim (great shower to wash off the sand before getting in the hot tub) or just to relax. The eating area was perfect for our 11 members as there are 2 long tables with stools to eat on the deck or a large table inside - but who wants to eat inside when you can eat outside on a covered deck. Speaking about eating there are plenty of coconuts and passion fruit to allow everyone to have their fill! There are enough games to play outdoors, puzzles/games to play indoors, plus enough snorkeling equipment, fins, boogie boards to keep everyone happy + enough towels to dry off! If you run out of clothes, the washer and dryer are big and easy to use. The bbq grill is large enough for the family to eat from at one time & is always filled with gas! I can only say if we ever get to Hawaii again or if we have any friends going, I would stay here again & highly recommend it - as it is close to the water & Haleiwa yet private, luxurious yet comfortable, spacious yet cozy, all anyone could ask for, including an outside bar/refrigerator so you can keep cool even in the hot tub. Thanks Greg for letting us stay with you! We look forward to visiting again. No one in our group could ask for more."
