"Our family just enjoyed our first ever trip to Hawaii. Perfect in every way is how we'd describe it! It was also the first time I used VRBO to book a vacation. I came across Thuha's ad on VRBO and she responded right away. She was fantastic to deal with and always responded quickly to any questions we had. The property is just like you see in the pictures, only better. The view is amazing and sitting out on the lanai is the perfect way to start and end the day. The unit was spotlessly clean, and had everything we needed, including nice beach towels, boogie boards and other beach toys and a life jacket for the little one. The 3 bedrooms, each with their own ensuite was the perfect set up for our family. We also used the pack 'n play and highchair that was in the suite. Being steps from the pool and beach made it easy to go back and forth to the suite anytime we needed to, including to use the BBQ's available for guest use. We spent 10 days in Hawaii. Here are the things we did if you are looking for fun things to do with your family: (We travelled with our 3 daughters, son-in-law (ages 16 - 26) and our 2 yr old grandson) Pools, beach and snorkling in our lagoon (lots of colorful fish and beautiful sand beach); Waimea Falls and the North shore (don't miss swimming at the falls, watching the surfers on the N. shore, and visiting old town Haleiwa); Pearl Harbour (spent 6 hours there); Ziplining at Kualoa Ranch (worth the $); surf lessons with Danny at Westside Surf (he's hilarious and the best surf instructor! Only 10 minutes away); Boogey boarding at Waimanalo Beach (seriously Hawaii's most beautiful beach, off the beaten path, and with the best sand and most turquoise water I've ever seen. Perfect waves for boogie boarding); Diamond Head Crater hike (took 45 min with a 2 year old in the backpack carrier); Paradise Cove Luau; Waikiki Beach and the shopping/dining area nearby; eating Malasadas at the famous Leonard's Bakery . . . You will not regret staying at this location! 30 minutes from the airport, it is in a beautiful area of high end resorts and a beautiful golf course. Grocery stores are 5 - 10 min drive away. Good coffee is a short walk away. We'll be back!"
