Not sure what a previous reviewer meant when saying the property was not as pictured and the photographs were obviously dated... Hale Mauka was EXACTLY as pictured, perhaps a little more spacious than photos make it appear, and some of the furniture was newer and slightly rearranged. Maybe it's because I lived on an island for two years, or because... More

We spent two weeks in Hale Ali'i (House of the Chief) and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We did not want to see the island from a hotel in Honolulu and heard horror stories about the traffic in 'town' so purposely sought out a house on the North Shore so we could enjoy the island life. We could not have found... More

We had a thoroughly delightful time here. We stayed at the House of the Chief. The house has more than adequate storage and everything that you could possibly need to feel "home" away from home. This is a family owned establishment, and it's obvious that they take pride in ownership. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Oti, who immediately... More

We were quite satisfied with our accommodation, Lanikai. It was in the front by the water, and it was nicely appointed. From the photos, we could tell that the eating table was adjacent to the bed. This was a little strange, but since it was just the two of us, we didn't really mind. It was especially nice that the... More

Aloha and thank you for your review. I'm happy you were satisfied and found us to be affordable, however a little disappointed you were concerned that there were not screens on the windows and doors. Being right on the ocean (10 feet away from the surf break) we have found that the salt air corrodes and destroys the frames faster... More

We had a large group coming to Hawaii for my daughters wedding. We rented the Kai lani, hale Mauka, and the ehu Kai hale for a week. We couldn't have asked for a more accommodating, perfect place to stay. Reservations were a breeze, questions were answered quickly. Everyone we dealt with from beginning to end, were wonderful. I couldn't have... More

We stayed in the Sunrise rental for 1 week. Pros: We have stayed in several vacation rentals over the years and this was the cleanest rental we have ever stayed in.

Aloha & mahalo for your kind and thorough review. Yes, parking is tight and Kamehameha, the only road around the island, can be busy at times, however in 2 generations of running our business we've never had one accident. I think it is because we normally drive with "aloha" in Hawaii, meaning if you nudge out into the road someone... More

We stayed three nights here in Hale Ali'i (House of the Chief). The shared deck was right up against the rocky seashore and we had a separate deck with a small eating table by the sea. The overall impression was of staying in someone's home. It was kind of quirky but comfortable. Kitchen was well appointed. Looking at the other... More

Aloha and mahalo for such a wonderful review. Although it wasn't entirely a glowing review (we do admit we're not perfect) it was spot on in terms of what travelers can expect from our lodging. We always try to make people aware that we are not a hotel or resort, but instead we're down-to-earth, family-friendly, direct beachfront at affordable prices...something... More

We were very excited to book this property and based on the many excellent reviews we had high expectations.

Aloha and thank you for your review. Yes, as previously noted, the beach in front of our property took a beating this year due to the highest surf in more than a decade to hit the islands and the subsequent erosion. Many beachfront homes lost a lot more than sand...some lost structures and swimming pools. We got lucky. Sorry, but... More

Mahalo for your review. We know Hale Ko'olau isn't for every traveler, however I am concerned about the claim that you didn't know this was a duplex home. We're very clear about that in our advertising and in the rental agreement. This is why a family of 5 can rent a direct beachfront 3 bedroom in Hawaii for under $250/night,... More
