We came here in November and booked through hostel world where we had to pay a deposit (as you'd expect). When we arrived to pay we were told that we still had to pay the full price, that Kalani had 'absolutely nothing to do with hostel world' (even though the lodging is listed and available to book through their website),...

My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights in September and loved it! We didn't get to meet Maria, but Bernie was a very helpful and very friendly host. The house is lovely and the location is amazing. A few minutes from Sunset Beach and very close to Haleiwa by car. It was one of these places where you... More

Aloha!!! The Sunset Studio is perfect! Walking distance to Sunset Beach!!! Is a safe, clean and protected place for a couple. We stood 10 days and the trip was just a dream! Everything perfect. Bernie and Maria are really nice. We are in love with Hawaii! For sure we will come back soon. Mahalo!!! Rodolfo and Naty

My friend and I had booked 4 nights at Kalani and took the bus from Honolulu to get there. It took about 3 hours and when we finally arrived we couldn't find the hostel so we called the manager to get directions. He was quite hysterical on the phone and told us to stay EXACTLY where we were so he... More

stayed in the Sunrise-Sunset lodging during august/September of 2014 for about 7 nights. Bernie helped us out with anything we needed and made the stay that much more easy. Really stoked we chose to stay there than, say, in Waikiki or something as it was much more relaxed and really easy to get into town so the wife could do... More

Aloha! I had a surprise 10 days open up in April 2014 and when I found Kalani, jumped to stay there b/c it is across from the beaches I consider the most breathtakingly beautiful in the world. Maria and Bernie have created an extraordinary environment and my expectations were exceeded. Many moons ago I was an Executive in the Hotel... More

Stayed here in the Heliconia room during our last night in Oahu. The location is on the North Shore and it's a great place with all the accommodations you need. Maria was very friendly and helpful with everything. Location is very quiet and feels like home. Can't wait to come back! Went in August 2012

We stayed 5 days in the Sunrise-Sunset studio. The room with kitchenette, bathroom, outdoor shower & private garden area are lovely. The location is peaceful & quiet but very convenient -- it would be hard to find just from directions since the many driveways look similar, but Bernie met us at the gas station closeby when we arrived. He was... More

A friend and I stayed at Kalani during our month on the North Shore and it was, hands down, the greatest "lodge" we've ever been to. Maria and Bernie make everyone feel so welcome, the place is SPOTLESS, free surfboards and boogie boards to borrow, the atmosphere is nice and relaxed (definitely not a crazy, loud party place), the other...
