As much or as little as required.
This is rural Hawaii! You can watch the sunrise over the pacific ocean and hike to waterfalls, within walking distance from Tiki Moon Villas. Quiet, relaxing. Between January and May, whales are seen almost on a daily basis from the garden. Relax on secluded beach and be rejuvenated.
Enjoy Polynesian Cultural Center during the day and walk across the street to your room! No need to join the traffic jam going back to Waikiki.
Rental car is the best option. Bus Route 55 comes around every 40 minutes.

Our stay was very nice and peaceful. The hosts were very friendly and informative.
Pros: Tiki moon villa's proximity to the ocean is the closest you can get. Watching sunrise by the ocean from the villa was a great experience. It has a very comfortable bed and an awesome kitchen to cook your meals.
Cons: The shower stall could have been a little bigger; not many great options to go eat out in a 10 mile range.

About the Host, Raymond
Born and raised in New Orleans. Currently enjoying the islands of Hawaii where I manage my own beachfront vacation rentals known as Tiki Moon Villas. I come to New Orleans a few times a year to submerse myself in the music on Frenchman Street, Yoga classes and our great New Orleans style cooking! I think you will enjoy our tastefully renovated home away from home, located only 14 minutes from the French Quarter.
