I stay in VRBO houses fairly often, and most times the pictures are just a little nicer than the actual house. This was the one time in all my travels that the pictures didn't do it justice (and the pictures look great). We loved our entire trip, but the house and its amenities were the standout. I've never stayed in such a beautiful place for such a reasonable price. We spent every morning on the deck watching the sun come up, and every evening after dark listening to the waves crash and the sea breeze blow through the palm trees.
The view is unbelievable, like something you'd see on a postcard. The house was also very well stocked, far and away above the industry standard. There were more kitchen items, seasonings, appliances, and misc stuff than I've ever had before. The free range chickens roaming the property were fun to watch and you can't see another house from the property unless you really look through the trees, it felt very secluded. I can't say enough about how nice the property was kept and how much it added to our trip. The 35 minute drive to Honolulu wouldn't even be a factor to me, I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Everything was perfect. Thank you for a fantastic stay!
