14 October 2011 16:48 | I stayed in: Koolani Lanai “Tranquil Balcony House”
We had a family gathering of 32 and booked 2 and a half houses. (Koolani Lanai; Hale Mauka Makai; Hale Mauka)
The accommodation allowed us to all gather together for many fun filled meals as a family – where else in the world could you do that and be just a few metres from the ocean with the gentle waves rolling onto the shore.
The houses were comfortable and very suitable for this large family group. We could have stayed here all day since the children had ample room to play and collect coconuts, we had a wonderful time on the kayaks - gentle waves and enough of a challenge for inexperienced kayakers – yet still felt very stable and safe. We put the barbecues to great use and were able to watch the kids having a great time in the hot tub at the same time.
North Shore Oahu has so much to explore (swimming over the top of turtles in Turtle Cove; snorkelling amongst the fish at shark bay; surfing Pipeline; bathing at Waimea; exploring the historic village of Hale’iwa; the list goes on) and our only regret is we weren’t here for longer.

First of all my wife and I had a great time. This was our first visit to your beachfront property. I can truly say this was exactly as advertise "on the beach". It was such a pleasure to open up the bay window and just allow the sounds of the waves hitting the shoreline to rock you to sleep. There were no negative issues to our stay. We had complete privacy and felt like we were living on our own private resort. The ability to swim or snorkel in the ocean and go straight to your own private hot tub and then have dinner or breakfast on the beach all done within a walking distance of fifty feet. We have already planned a return visit. We plan on bringing family and friends and securing a larger villa for our next Hawaiian experience.
The wife and I have travelled all over the world and by far this was our best trip. See you guys soon and continue to do what you are currently doing offering a terrific package at a truly great price.

My friends and I stayed at the Kai Lani in Aug and had a wonderful time. We're so happy we chose to stay far away from Honolulu/Waikiki. Three Tables Beach next to Sharks Cove is just beautiful. Everyone in Hawaii are super friendly. We just loved Hawaii and were sad to leave.

Very quiet peaceful location. Steps to the beautiful coastline. Loved every minute of it, and had a tough time coming home. Was the perfect getaway. Will be looking to return soon and stay in another of the Hale Ko'olau places!
Clean, quiet, and comfortable accommodations. We had everything we needed to make our honeymoon enjoyable. A short distance to several beautiful beaches. The upstair guests were courteous and quiet too.
