"The house is so phenomenal. It is even prettier in person. It is roomy and cozy all at the same time. The layout is perfect. 4800 SF of lusciousness! I love that each bedroom has it's own bathroom and lanai. It was more than enough room for all 8 of us whether we wanted to hang out together or have some quiet time. We had breakfast and dinner together most every day. We loved having breakfast out on the wrap around porch.
The property itself is so amazing because it has coconuts, limes, avocados, bananas, and papayas. Plus the landscaping is so well taken care of that we enjoyed just hanging out in the yard. There were beautiful birds, funny chickens, and happy roosters. The pool is wonderful and refreshing. It is the perfect setting because it is close to everything but set back enough to enjoy nature.
The ocean is right across the street. You can walk to the beaches. If you go out from the house to the right.....you can stroll along the beautiful beaches and enjoy the scenery. Just keep your eyes on the ocean. The water can come in quick. For swimming, you can also go to the beaches to the left. You can walk or drive to Shark's Cove. It's right across from the food trucks next to FoodLand. The water felt wonderful, the views are magnificent, and the sun felt so warm. We got to see some amazing surfing. So cool!
We went Whale Watching, Hang gliding (Mr. Bill's), watched the perfect sunset at Turtle Bay Resort Club, and had an unforgettable experience at the Polynesian Cultural Center. There are so many great places to eat but most days we cooked in the ginormous gourmet kitchen. We also did a lot of shopping. There are tons of great places to walk through. Many unique items in Waliema and a lot of little shops near the Polynesian Cultural Center.
Michael is the perfect host. He made sure that we got into the house and gave us great tips on where to eat. We had a question about the wi-fi and he answered us immediately. The property was so relaxing that we felt like we were home. We will never ever forget our vacation there and we plan to come back in another year. If we could rate it higher than 5 stars we would."
