My third time to Hawaii and i chose to stay at Kalani. The location is really quiet and so close to all the main surf spots. The accommodation and facilities are really good and they clean the place every day. What I enjoyed the most about my trip was how helpful the owner and her husband are. Bernie will tell... More

I was visiting my son, his wife, and my new granddaughter and since their place was too small, I needed a place to stay. I stayed in the dorms with all the surfers and the students on break. Bernie and Maria made my stay comfortable and I enjoyed the interaction with all the younger folks. Bernie was especially helpful to... More

We travelled to Oahu as a small family to watch the Pipe Masters...weren't keen on paying huge dollars for luxury and weren't keen on driving from Waikiki everyday so needed something within budget yet nice in quality and feel...and we found it.

Maria & Bernie are fabulous, generous hosts, the accomodation is sensational, the position is ideal and the holiday location is just perfect, a perfect holiday base. We enjoyed our own private garden, interesting, personal, quality fittings, it was a home away from home. A home in paradise.

The best stay on the North Shore - Kalani is a beautiful sanctuary, close to the beach, and run by the very helpful and welcoming Maria and Bernie. The house has a villa feel and is throughout taken care of. I can't wait to come back to this paradise.
