Our home is located on the beautiful windward side of Oahu surrounded by mountains and ocean and only a few steps from the beach. On the property there are two houses, rent one or both for those larger groups.
Picnic or Bar-B-Que at the beach or in the privacy of your own yard. Swimming at the beach is ideal for toddlers and children or wading and relaxing for all. Reef walking during minus tide and snorkeling when the tide is up beckon to the adventurous. Or simply walk along the sandy beach in the tanning sun or the romantic moonlight as the water laps your bare feet on the white sand.
Both houses are on the same property, which provides a total of 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and two complete kitchens with range and refrigerators. They comfortably sleep 12 – 15.

What a fantastic location and rental! Our party included 14 guests, 7 of which were under the age of 7. The beach is close to the house and very safe. Like the listing says, it is perfect for young children but provides good snorkeling and recreational swimming for more adventurous beach goers. The home is in a good spot if you want to relax or visit locations like the LDS temple or Polynesian Cultural Center.
The location of this house can't be beat! Right across the street from the beach and the crosswalk is right in front so you can easily cross the busy street. There is some road noise as the highway can get busy, but the large fans we found in the bedrooms were able to drown out most of it! There was a great area between the houses for the kids to play, and the adults can hang out and bbq. The houses themselves were comfortable and able to accommodate our family of 10. Thanks so much for a great stay, Laura!
Laura response fast to inquires. Very accommodating!!! The location is great. The window view from the living room of the front house is like a live picture. A lot of parking spaces inside the gate in an area that is hard to find parking. Lots of beds. 15 of us sleep there at one time. Kitchen has enough pots and pans, all the cooking needs that we did not need to go out to eat the whole time we were there. One downside was that we stayed over a long weekend and so there were overnight beach campers across the street that made enough nose to disturb our sleep ( in the front house ) after midnight. Other than that, we had a great time. We will definitely consider coming back.
These houses are in a quiet not-so-busy location and the best part was that it was right across the street from the beach! Our group thoroughly enjoyed the location and the facilities in the home. It was a lot more peaceful than Honolulu/Waikiki! The neighbours are terrific and location is great! Definitely coming back when we come back to Oahu!
Coming from upstate New York this was a little slice of Heaven for a few days. Laura was very accommodating with anything we requested including quickly bringing what we needed to make our stay more enjoyable. The houses were clean and offered a place for my family of 9 (all adults) to gather, talk, laugh and enjoy each other's company. We did feel that there could have been more towels, blankets, coffee mugs and maybe another coffee maker (one full size one for each house) as there were may coffee drinkers. There was a main road (the only one on the windward side of the island) in front of the house but you got use to the traffic after a day or two. The front porch gave us a place to relax and talk and enjoy sunrises and the waves rolling in. The location worked well for us as we had easy access to the North Shore and Honolulu. We would stay here again if we come back to Oahu. Thanks Laura!!!
It was really nice staying there. Our whole family of 12 people enjoyed staying at cozy house. Children loved playing with sands toys, which were there for the guest. Looking at the sea all day, walking at the beach was true healing for my family.
There are three bedrooms in the front house and three in the back, really good combination for us!
While staying here we visited Kualoa ranch and Polynesian culture center, which are close from the property.
I couldn't meet our host, Laura,but she kindly gave us detailed instruction by leaving note.
We all wish we could stay at the property sgain in the future.
We live on the island of Oahu just 8 miles from the property. I am a teacher on the North Shore. I was raised in Kaaawa and love it that you can just go to the beach whenever you want. I have 3 sisters that were also raised there. Of our 11 children only 5 live on the island and all on the North Shore. The others live in the mainland. All but one are married with families and our special girl lives at home with us. Our boys played football, our daughter teaches hula and plays the piano and our hobbies are working, working, and then working.
