    Beautiful spot and plenty of room for our family of 3. Greeted each morning by sunrise and roosters!

    We loved this house. It was the perfect spot to relax at the end of each day and nothing got me into vacation mode more than taking in the beautiful views from the Lanai early h morning. My 16 month old son loved the rooster and few chickens that occupied the property. We were right at home and slept great with the breezes off the bay. What a tranquil Oasis!! We will be back.

    5/5 Excellent

    Beautiful Hawaiian Escape

    Everything in the home was even more than expected! Loved the regular 4-5 roosters/chickens that said hello. Yard was well maintained and a very quiet area. Furnishings were perfect and the extras in the home were a nice touch. Dian was great with communication. We had a wedding to attend just 1.3 miles down the road. So, the location was perfect! Also, the location is great for anyone. 1/2 hour drive away from busy Honolulu. It is a strong possibility we will be returning in a couple of years. Thank you Dian!

    5/5 Excellent

    The house and everything was simply amazing!

    Our first family vacation couldn't have been better. The pictures to this amazing house does not do it justice!

    5/5 Excellent

    Beautiful Windward Side Location

    Absolutely stunning view of Kaneohe Bay and Chinaman's Hat from the deck. Very quiet and private with spacious living room and outstanding kitchen. Ample parking and easy to get anywhere on the island. The pictures just don't do it justice.

    5/5 Excellent

    The Highlight Of Our Trip

    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!
