We had 7 adults staying here. Everyone could spread out. The pool was fantastic. We used the grill twice. We had breakfast outside every morning. The kitchen is well stocked with lots of tools and extras.

We stayed a week and had an amazing time. The host was very responsive to questions I had. The view from the patio is beautiful and made dinners and playing cards as a family so much fun. The place is perfect for a family and located well for all activities on the big island.

This property was great for our adult and teen family of 6. Very relaxing and spacious. Sunsets were beautiful, we loved the little green gecko, natural ventilation was fine. The location was good from airport, shopping and quick drive to snorkel beach. About 8 min.walk to White Sands Beach. The private pool was a nice addition, a bit chilly this time of year, but usable. The owners had put together a super informative booklet of activities/locations of the island. Great communication. Overall this well-stocked property was greatly enjoyed by our family.

Our stay was fantastic and this home perfectly fit our family. We mostly used the lanai and BBQ. We loved the geckos and appreciated them for eating the bugs. The host had everything you need for cooking, going to the beach and guides for things to do in the area. Overall a perfect island beach vacation.

Just an amazing property. We had a pretty large group (8 adults and 2 small children) and felt there was plenty of space. Outdoor dining was a highlight and everything was well stocked. Plenty of fans that always creates good air floor in the house. Would definitely recommend!!!

House was very nice and had all the amenities we needed. Pool was great and spent hours on the big lanai where we could see the whales breaching

The house was perfect. We had a group of nine of us came there and there was plenty of room. In addition having the little mother-in-law apartment below was beautiful so we got a little bit of separation from the whole family. Would stay back here anytime

We stayed with 4 couples and infants at this home and had an overall good experience. To start this place is a great value and we had a great time. The Bad: 1. One of the rooms is a mother-in-law suite that is essentially a separate house that shares the same driveway. This isn’t communicated well in the posting, but there is no direct access to the rest of the house or the pool without walking up the driveway. 2. The mother-in-law suite is not cleaned to the same standard as the primary home. The bedding was dirty (makeup from previous guest) and we ended up washing it ourselves. The cupboards had spider webs, and the shower was not cleaned. The primary home was very clean so this was surprisingly different. 3. The mattresses are terrible. The master suite in the primary home had a brand new mattress which was great. The other mattresses are worse than a motel 6. For such a nice home this is a shock. The owner should invest a little money in new mattresses for a place that brings in $600 a night when fully occupied. The Good: 1. No A/C was not a problem. We stayed during a 10 day period that was consistently 87 deg F. We are from Alaska and never once overheated. The ceiling fans and natural ventilation architecture are amazing. 2. The pool is awesome. Deep enough for adults to swim and super private. 3. Location was great. Close enough to walk to the beach and you can watch the sunset while eating dinner on the Lanai. Overall we would recommend!

Beautiful home, well equipped with everything we needed for our stay and a great location(very close to a Magic Sands Beach). The host was exceptional.

We enjoyed the house, didnt use rhe Lani as it is seperate from the house. There is NO AC! This house gets very hot in the evenings, espically if you cook-- just fyi. The pool was refershing, a tad chilly in morning but very nice. The down side was the bed in master br, our backs are srill sore from the matress, we contimplated sleeping on the floor it sunk in so badly. Good house, would not rent again but it was good. (We originally had another family coming but they had to cancle.) 3.5-4 stars overall. Kitchen was well stocked with all necessary pots, pans etc.

This was a very pleasant experience for my family. Easy check-in with a great view of the nightly sunsets. The house was spacious and true to the listing. The house was fully stocked with essentials for making meals, lounging on the beach or a day out snorkeling. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed here with our friends from the mainland during our wedding week. The pool was a hit! Mahalo nui to Sarang!

With Magic Sand Beach a 10 minute walk away, a pool in the yard, a fantastic deck to watch the sunsets, the place is pretty great. Some of the "accessories" that come with the home are in need of updating/replacing (bedding, frying pans, deck chairs). The driveway up to the garage is steep, so a low car will bottom out (the rented Caravan did but the Rav4 did not). There is a great collection of pool and beach toys and towels. The barbecue was excellent at the all appliances worked well. The neighbourhood is great, quite quiet (except for the entertaining birds), you can hear the waves at night. The available in-law suite that has its own access was a bonus for the not so close friends.

Fully equipped! Walking distance to Magic Sands Beach! Took advantage of the boogie boards that were supplied. Quiet neighborhood and quaint location. Owner was quick to answer questions too. Thanks for having us!

Wonderful home with plenty of room, all the amenities and close to beach. Our group of 4 loved the place and would stay here again.

We were pleasantly surprised to have a separate Ohana cottage with this property. My son, his wife and 4 y.o. daighter stayed there, while the rest of us stayed in the main house. Very comfortable and well thought out property. The garage has everything you need to go to the beach and several beach towels were available. The kitchen had everything we needed. The pool is small but fairly deep and perfect for cooling off after a hard day on the beach ⛱️ 😎. We absolutely recommend this property.

This house was perfect. It had everything we needed and was very clean. It was also the best temperature we experienced (different condos) because the layout allowed for great cross breezes. The house has everything you need for the beach or pool too which helps with keeping your luggage light. I will definitely be staying here in the future.


Tammy N.
October 2023
Love love loved the pool. The neighbors not so much. The sounds echo from next door and across the street. It was completely fine except one neighbor was coming in for the night and it echoed so loudly it sounded like they were trying to get into our rental. Other than that it was a great time

The house is well stocked with all the essentials. We did end up buying a new cast iron frying pan because all of the nonstick pans were really scratched up. We left it in the kitchen for future guests to use. One big thing is that the house does not have recycling collection. You have to take recyclables to the transfer station. There is a PUR water filter pitcher in the refrigerator, so use that instead of buying a case of bottle waters. As stated in the description, only the ohana suite has AC. There are extra fans found in the closets to cool off further if needed. It is a tropical environment, and there are plenty of little creatures roaming around the house. Make sure to keep clean, especially in the kitchen or you'll find yourself in a bug circus. The only issue we ran into was the box spring in the master bedroom sliding off of the the metal bed frame and cracking. I'm only 120 lbs. so it was a bit scary when I sat on the side of the bed with my baby and dropped to the ground. The host was very responsive and offered a temporary fix and let us know it will be remedied before the next guests arrive. Overall our entire family had a wonderful time and my 4 year old didn't want to leave. I highly recommend staying here.

My husband and I rented this amazing property with two other couples. It was the first time visiting for all 6 of us. From the moment we booked this home we have had exceptional service. We received so much information on the area and things to do before we even arrived. Questions were answered promptly. Check in & out were easy processes. The property is in a great location. Easy access to a local beach, gorgeous sunset views and all the amenities you need. The pool is an added bonus. We can’t say enough about how much we loved our stay here. Highly recommended it.

Kids loved the pool and the home was beautiful.

The location is terrific, the view is even better in person. You could tell that care was given to try to include many comforts of home (bath towels, beach towels, linens, books, games, laundry detergent, dish soap, etc.) to make the start of our stay easy. The pool was lovely to relax in, though some of the tiles are coming off. We did not understand that the main home was without air conditioning so we experienced many warm days and nights when the breeze was lacking. We ended up not needing the ohana (which does have a window AC, but the area is too small to accommodate us all). Our kids enjoyed naming the plethora of geckos in the house. The mouse and cockroaches were a little tough, though. We were able to catch and dispose of the mouse (he was hiding under the fridge and stove). The home was pleasant enough, the updated countertops and sinks are a nice touch, but some things still feel a little rustic. Overall, it provided us a laid back place to land and the owners were very thoughtful in their planning and communication.

Zachary S.
May 2023
Obviously, a gorgeous property with plenty of space for larger groups and all the amenities you could ask for. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. The location is within walking/biking distance to many fun spots and a short drive to even more amazing can't miss visits. The owners provided an excess of beach towels and ocean toys (snorkeling gear, various boards, etc.) which was very convenient because we didn't have to waste time renting. Very quiet and private neighborhood. Owners also provided an extensive list of activities and food on the island so we could avoid wasting time. The driveway is very steep but there is abundant street parking. We were there for a formal wedding, so the lack of air conditioning had us sweating in our suits, but very understandable given the climate. Overall, 10/10 amazing experience that I would highly recommend to anyone!

As soon as we walked through the doors, we knew this house would be perfect for our family vacation! We arrived with our 2 adult children and their partners and had lots of room in the kitchen preparing meals and drinks and enjoyed eating meals, playing cards and games on the lanai. We loved the swimming pool and waterfall!! The house is in a great location with a short walk to Magic Sands Beach and a short drive to the Keauhou Shopping Centre. The To Do and Where To Go info left for us was priceless. Sarang was very responsive to our questions and we appreciated the thoughtfulness of kitchen equipment, snorkel gear, and beach supplies in the garage. Although the large teflon frying pans and ironing board have reached the end of their lifespans. :-) We would stay here again and would definitely recommend this house for families. Precious memories were made there for our family! Mahalo.

We traveled to Hawaii for the first time with our family and we enjoyed staying at the house! We especially enjoyed the pool and the boogie boards. We loved Magic Sands Beach and some of us simply walked there. We appreciated the cleanliness and the beach towels available so that we didn’t have to purchase them. We didn’t realize that the lower living space was not connected to the upper level without going outside but we had adult children that enjoyed the separate area! Overall it was wonderful and, although it was fairly rainy during our stay, we did get to enjoy a sunset from the lanai! Mahalo!!


Elizabeth H.
February 2023
What an amazing vacation we had, and a big part of it was this house. First of all, it was easy to get to and get in, very clean and well stocked, and the layout was perfection! We all loved hanging out on the lanai and playing in the pool when we needed a beach break, and there was plenty of beach toys, coolers, equipment galore. We will definitely stay again.


Jenny N.
February 2023
The property is quiet, clean, and very comfortable. There is plenty of space for everyone to gather, and for everyone to have privacy. The lanai is perfect for outdoor meals. Location is ideal for families who want to go to ALL the beaches. We drove south and north, and didn't have to spend too much time in the car. It's a beautiful home in a beautiful place!

Our guests consisted of My sister and her son, my adult kid, my 10 year old, and myself. It fit our needs well. There's a little studio that my older kid stayed in and got some privacy. The pictures do make the house and pool seem bigger and brighter than it is, but it was just fine. The location was nice and was easy to get to pretty much anything and away from the craziness of Ali'i drive. The host was VERY responsive.

This home is perfect for a large family. Great common area and pool is nice. Has everything you need for beach vacation. The rental is showing it's use but you'll pay much more for perfection.

One of our favorite places to stay..Thank you..

November 2022
I'll start with the positive. The location of the property is in a quiet neighborhood with an easy walk to Magic Sands. The layout of the house is great for a family get together and the communication with the owner was easy and the check in/check out process was a breeze. The master bedroom was spacious and its bathroom was in good condition. And now to the rest. The house itself photographs better than its reality and is in desperate need of a deep cleaning, repairs and some TLC. If you have asthma this is not your rental. Compared to other rentals we have had this house was incredibly dirty, with dust everywhere including clinging to the walls, the backside of doors, smoke detectors and portable fans. There was paint chipping from the walls, and mismatched paint could be seen in many areas. The window frames were peeling, rusting, and several didn't close at all. The screen in the guest bath was bent which allowed bugs and geckos to enter. The shower was were covered with what we assumed to be gecko droppings. It was the worst, but droppings could be seen in other areas as well. There were ants all over the kitchen and while there were traps already set out, we had to buy additional ones. No food could be left on the counter without any crumb a potential target. One of the shades in the twin bedroom was zip tied up because it didn't work even though it had a direct sight line to the neighbors. Our bed cover was stained and there was only one bath towel per person to be had. The screen/sliding doors to outside didn’t close properly leaving large gap for insects to come in any time screen doors were in use. In addition, the door's handle was loose and we repaired it while there. My sister and her family stayed in the Ohana. Her report was that the bed was not super comfortable and the fold out was really uncomfortable. No one who slept on it had a good night's sleep. The driveway is extremely steep so if you someone in your party with mobility issues expect to have to shuttle them to the bottom via a car. The Wi-Fi was constantly resetting and the Roku TV proved incredibly frustrating to use or find anything on. We raised our concerns to the owner upon arrival and we were refunded a $275 cleaning fee which was a fraction of our rental cost of over $6K. I really hate leaving a review like this, but we not rent or recommend this property.

We had a great time at this property. Host was very quick to respond to inquiries and the house had everything we needed for our multi-generation family vacation. There was lots of room and we liked having the young adults in the downstairs unit so they could stay up later when the rest of us wanted to go to bed. We prepared and ate almost all of our meals there and the kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed. The beach was a short walk and the garage had everything we needed - cooler, chairs, snorkels, floats, and sand toys. The pool was perfect for relaxing in the evenings.

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautifully laid out house. The pool, the location and the layout of the rooms are really great! To get to a 5 star rating, however, the house needs in one or the other place a repair and basic cleaning (stairs to the pool wobbles, pictures and walls partially yellowed, in one or the other place wobbles or missing something). Nevertheless, we had a lovely time in this light and airy home, and enjoyed the sunsets and ocean views on the deck. There are lots of accessories for beach and water, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, cooler etc.

This property is so cute. From the layout of the house to the cute pineapple plants growing outside there is so much character. I do have to say that this house needs a good scrubbing from TOP to bottom. The lights and beams were covered in dust and the walls were splattered. Also some home restorations like paint repairs could be done to be more pleasing on the eye. The pool was amazing. It is a salt water pool and my kids LOVED it! It was the highlight to my kid's stay. The Lanai was also greatly used! Dinner on the Lanai with the pool water feature on was the icing with every sunset.

We rented the house plus the separate Ohana unit for our family of 6 adults and 2 children because we needed 6 beds. We would stay in the house again. The house was great - very comfortable, located only a few blocks from Magic Sands - a nice little family beach - and a short drive from a shopping center with a grocery and drug store and restaurants. We could even see the sun set over the ocean from the deck. It was well-equipped for cooking, easy to do laundry, and the kids especially loved the pool. There were beach chairs, beach towels, sand toys, snorkeling gear, and coolers which made our trips to the beach very easy and enjoyable. The problems were maintenance and communication. Our adult son slept on a mattress on the floor for 2 weeks because one side of the support springs on the old hide-a-bed in the Ohana unit have torn out and the owner wouldn't correct the problem. There were a few other maintenance issues such as the older sliding door screens falling off their tracks. The lack of a bed was a big problem but the other issues were minor. We enjoyed our stay and especially recommend it for families.


Stefanie O.
June 2022
It wasn't clear about there being a separate living quarters, which we didn't use. The pictures made it seem like the beach was directly outdoors, but wasn't a bad walk. The only think I didn't like was the outside pool lights around the pool. They never came on. All and all, it was spacious, clean, and sufficient for the 5 of us. Would definitely recommend it. The owner was very prompt in replying. We really enjoyed it. Thanks Sarang!

The home was beautiful and exactly as described. The home had everything we needed and more and is ideally located just minutes from the beach, shops, an dining. The only problem we had was that we couldn't get any of the TVs to work. However, I'm sure this would have been easily resolved but we decided we didn't need TV and enjoyed the pool, playing games, listing to the beautiful birdsong, and enjoying everything the property and area had to offer. This may be the favorite amongst all of our vacation rental stays!

From start to finish my experience went smoothly, despite Covid delaying when we could go. However the wait was definitely worth it. The house definitely met our expectations and I would definitely recommend it to others. The Hosts were very accommodating and we appreciated everything about our stay.

We enjoyed our stay, the property is clean and well kept. The property owners have supplied the home with consideration for their guests and we wanted for nothing. It does get warm in the house from about noon to 4pm. Great time to use the pool. We slept comfortably with the fans and windows open. I will stay there next time I’m in the area.

We had a great time at the house- very well equipped, comfy furniture, solid layout for groups, cool enough even without AC. Communication and check in were simple. Location is great to get all around the island. Could have been slightly cleaner, but we appreciated all the conveniences (i.e. cooler, beach stuff, kitchen goods, etc.).

Great house with everything you need to start a great vacation. Sarang is terrific to work with and very flexible to find reasonable solutions through these challenging Covid times. Looking forward to the next stay. Thanks Rick.

This home fit all our needs - close to beaches, easy access to highway for touring, and a pool for the kiddos when they were tired of beach waves. We could still see the ocean from the deck. There were a few staples like seasonings and syrup; no pizza cutter for quick bites at night when too tired (read: cranky kids) to go out. Do note the 4th bedroom is a separate entrance which we forgot and the driveway is much steeper than appears in photos and a full size Tahoe will not fit in the garage unless you get creative and figure it out like we did; there is street parking. Groceries and restaurants are not super walkable but there was parking on Ali'i near the shops & restaurants. Overall, great space that worked for 5 adults and 2 kiddos (7&8). Mahalo!


Jeanette L.
February 2022
My friends and I (5 ppl total) were so pleased with our stay. This place, more than any other vacation rental I’ve stayed at, is a true home away from. The kitchen is well stocked, not just with tools, but with cooking staples like oil, salt, rice, sauces. When it’s time to hang out on the beach, they have everything you could want - snorkels, water shoes, fins, boogie boards, beach mats, towels, even a harpoon! It’s a great size, and 5-7 people can stay very comfortably. Beach is a 5 minute walk away, and the location is very central. Definitely read the guidebook, which is a wealth of information! We did not want for anything during our stay!

A bumpy start to the stay but the gracious host did everything they could to make it right. Once we settled in the house was great and very roomy! Had everything we needed to cook and hang out. Be warned the pool is not heated so you don’t just jump in like I did in December and get a nice cold shock 🤣

Our family group of seven were very comfortable here. Everything we needed was available to use for the five nights we stayed. Fully equipped kitchen made it easy to eat in. The pool and exterior furniture were enjoyed. Great location for seeing the island.

We had a really nice stay with a group of friends. We are all in our late 40’s and the home worked great for us. The house as a great layout providing for good space. The airflow made for cool evening and the back deck was a hit for game night. Would recommend this property to anyone.


Joanna B.
December 2021
My family and I stayed for 3 nights. The house was nice but seemed very old. There was a lot of chipped paint all over the walls. I had my 3 kids with me (ages 6, 3 and 8 months) and unfortunately didn’t find the house to be very kids friendly. There was no crib but we found a pack and play in the downstairs studio. The pack and play was very old and small. I wish I had brought my own. Also the house has very little privacy and the bedroom doors are not solid so it was very hard for my 8 month old to take naps at the house. If you have small children who nap during the day I wouldn’t recommend this house. The stairs down to the pool have a railing only on one side so it was a bit dangerous for my 3 year old. The coffee maker in the kitchen was very filthy. We tried to make coffee one morning but it tasted terrible so my husband had to go get coffee every morning. I would say the location is great! Very close to the beach but it’s more of a party house than a family getaway. The house was ok for us. I would suggest some TLC to make it more inviting and family friendly.


Elizabeth H.
December 2021
We had a great stay at this property. The house was in a great location and the owner was super responsive and communicative. The home has a great pool and we loved the lanai. The screen doors were older and needed some tlc and the coffee maker needs to be replaced. But the kitchen was great - really well-stocked. We would stay again if we had the chance.

It was a nice and spacious house for my family. We enjoyed the kitchen area, pool and lanai, and appreciated having a grill. Unfortunately, we felt the overall cleanliness of the house was poor. The ohana was not cleaned for our arrival, dirt was on the bed and the floor was dusty, which forced us to clean it ourselves. In the main house, 2/3 bedrooms had sand/dust in the bed and on the floor, the coffee maker was filthy, the screen doors in the master and kitchen would frequent fall off the track, gecko poop we’re not cleaned off the lanai, and lastly, the master bath tub leaked through to the ohana. Wish we could give the stay five stars.

We loved staying at this house while on vacation on the big island. The house is well stocked, comfortable, the location is great. The pool is a fun bonus. We hope to come back one day.

generally a pretty nice place. Love the style of the home, definitely feels like hawaii. Location is great, with walkable access to nearby beaches. Kitchen is fully stocked, clean, etc. nice floral arrangement when entering, owners were available for any questions/issues. A few minor downsides - the baby/toddler items were so old they were mostly not usable. Highchair was easily 30 years old and almost broke when putting my kid in it. The "crib" which was a pack and play wasn't clean, and the kid gate for the pool was pretty flimsy. The wooden drying rack was really old, wood was splintering, paint chipping, etc. All needs to be replaced or taken off the description. They were missing bath towels but the owner offered for us to use his, which was nice. We used some beach towels but they didnt smell clean so we washed them. Unfortunately there was a leak in the lower Ohana room when using the master shower, so we had to modify our habits a little bit to accommodate. Owner didnt know so it will likely get fixed. The soaker tub didnt look clean, had spiderwebs in it, etc. Pretty minor cons to an otherwise nice place!

What an amazing house to stay in! A short walk to a gorgeous beach, well stocked kitchen, plenty of room, and a great pool. We spent a ton of time on the lanai and in the pool. The garage had all you would need for beach time, masks, boogie boards, chairs, etc... Sarang was wonderful responding quickly and providing recommendations for us. We would highly recommend this house! Aloha!

The listening is 100% spot on. I grew up in Kona and this place was perfect for our stay. The décor was all Hawaii and Kona. As the sun rose each morning it was quiet and you could only hear the birds singing. Close to everything. So many amenities too. Plus, ecreational gear. We will stay there next time. We loved it.

This well appointed home was exactly as described and the perfect setting for our trip to the big island. The directions were easy and the home well equipped. We enjoyed the lanai and pool and were very comfortable in the beautifully decorated home. Thank you so much!

This property is amazing! The owners supply you with everything you need to enjoy days at the beach. Great beach toys, clean pool and accommodations are clean and top notch. The owners supply you with a personal guide outlining all of their favorite places to visit and eat. We planned each day of our vacation using these suggestions and were never disappointed.

This was an amazing place to stay during our time in Kona! The home is beautiful, well equipped and accommodating to families. We loved the quiet neighborhood and that it was close to everything! We loved our time in the pool and eating our meals on the lanai!! The owner is extremely accommodating and quick to respond! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful home!

My family enjoyed a wonderful stay at Sarang’s home. Communication was seamless and extremely prompt, and the house was exactly as listed—clean, spacious, with plentiful amenities. Pool and lanai in the back were great to relax in. The ohana was perfect for a couple and had its own kitchenette and full bathroom. We would definitely stay again!

This is a great place for the whole family. The pool is perfect! My granddaughter spent a LOT of time in the pool in between snorkeling sessions at nearby Kahuluu Beach. I have stayed in the Magic Sands area of Kailua-Kona previously and love the overall convenience of the area. You will too. The house is well equipped and set up for a large family group. The property owner manages the property himself and is available and understanding of renters' needs. If I were to take my family with me to Kailua-Kona again I would rent this residence again.

This place is awesome. Super clean, lots of beach toys, pool, patio, and tons of bedrooms. There is also a downstairs seperate suite that we didn't even use :) Thanks! Loved staying here

The layout of the property fit our family of 8 adults and 1 child perfectly. The kitchen is fully stocked and updated. The pool and beach toys were great. It’s close to everything we were looking for.

Awesome vacation home. Great location. Our first trip to Hawaii for our 30th wedding anniversary with our entire family. The house was everything we hoped for and more. Fully equipped kitchen, laundry, bathroom, beach/pool accessories. Comfortable living area with really nice furnishings. Owner super friendly and available with any questions you may have. We all miss our vacation home. Thank you! Bob, Sandy & Family

It's so nice when a homeowner makes a home like this accessible to the average family at a reasonable price. From the architecture to the complete amenities this house was amazing. Had a couple issues with the water heater but the host was quick to respond and help. We loved the salt water pool, the geckos and the kitchen! My god the kitchen was fabulous! Book this one you'll be glad you did!

A group of adults had a wonderful time using this house as a home base-the pool was amazing! It’s a half block to a nice beach (white sands) and a short drive to a great little town. The water temp was finicky but the owner offered to fix it while we were there and was super responsive to all my questions. Great host! Will stay at this place again in a heartbeat when we travel with a large group of adults or school age kids who know how to swim.

Such a big and comfortable house. A lot of space for all. Modern and nice design. Especially the terrace is nice for having breakfast or a barbecue. The pool is great too. The master bedroom has an extra big bathroom. We are amazed! Simply check in and out.

We all had plenty of room and the beaches are very accessible. The house comes with everything you need, snorkel equipment, sand toys, even boogie boards!

Love the home and the lanai/pool. Was very convenient location for Kona. Great air flow through the house to cool off things during the day.

Walk to magic sands and the snorkel beach. Convenient to Kona tourist area and grocery. Great location to your the entire big island. Randy's communication is to notch. The property had everything you need for a relaxing or adventurous vacation. Thanks, Randy.

We had an amazing time, loved the pool and views from lanai!! One thing that future renters should be aware of: the home is really 3 beds and two baths, the Ohana it completely separate and its entrance is from the street. Not a big deal for us, older teenager liked his space, but might not be alright for younger kids. There is an amazing collection of snorkel, boogie boards and beach gear...a huge benefit!! Lots of birds and no traffic noise 🌺

We enjoyed our stay...great location. Awesome owner..whale watching from the deck...countless hours spent in pool. Close to everything you need. Close enough to downtown but yet quiet enough to enjoy the Hawaiian life. Would book this house again and again

It was a great choice for our family vacation. Spacious and comfortable, well equipped. We enjoyed happy family dinners on the lanai and playing in the pretty pool. The host was very accommodating. We appreciated being able to check in early, and he provided helpful information. Had fun with all the beach equipment and appreciated the condiments! I’ve given 4 stars because there were issues with hot water in kitchen and second shower, but hey, it’s Hawaii! It’s all good. Thank you, Randy.

I can’t say enough about Randy’s hospitality. Responses were immediate. He was extremely supportive and accommodating in response to a special request. The house is very spacious and well equipped and well suited for our group of 7 including 3 children, 5 and under, with high chair and pack’n’play for the infant. The kitchen is equipped with everything one could conceivably need. There is also an abundant supply of children’s toys, beach and swim equipment. Highlights were watching the sun set while sitting at the table on a deck and swimming in the private, backyard pool (with waterfall) in a beautifully landscaped yard. A sandy beach is a short walk away.

Randy has done a nice job of making this home livable from the moment you arrive. Everything you need in the kitchen, including some leftovers of things that get used up slowly. Garage has everything for a day at the beach and an outdoor shower to wash the sand off before you go in the house. Yes, the driveway is steep, small price to pay for the view. Very comfortable for our 10, including a baby. Deck was great for a barbeque or glass of wine at sunset. It was a great value, however, it would be nice to replace a couple of the less comfortable living room chairs. Place was clean, some dust, maybe on high shelves, aggravated a couple of the older folks in our group with sensitivity. Seemed to be fine after a couple of days of that wonderful ocean breeze! We would stay there again in a heartbeat!
