Not only Kalani Lodging has the best location, but it is managed by the sweetest owners and the manager. It was my second time visiting here. It's that GOOD. Bernie lent me binocular for the surf competition and recommended spots to check out. Bonnie constantly made sure if everything was fine. Bathroom super clean, cleaner than my room lol Bedroom...

The location is great, only a few minutes away from some of the best beaches of Oahu! The house is clean and beautifully furnished, the garden is also really nice. Unfortunately I had a really bad experience with Bernie, one of the owners: I've read on their website that they are offering an airport shuttle, so I asked Bernie if...

Aloha Julia - first and foremost we want to extend a deep apology for a misunderstanding which has caused you offense. This is a case where a language barrier caused a situation to be misconstrued. (Idioms don't always translate well across languages.) When Bernie responded as he did he simply meant to acknowledge that he understood you had wished to...

Stayed just two nights here in one of the private rooms. So nice to get away from the craziness of Waikiki and experience some of the beauty and lay back vibe of the North Shore. Bernie met me and got me all set up in my room - such a friendly guy with lots of tips for where to go...

The accommodations on the north shore are limited and can be very expensive, so we decided to try a hostel. Like the other reviewing had mentioned the reservation process was different and mostly by email I tried to talk to Bernie once before booking, to get an idea of the layout of the hostel, for me he was unable to...

Aloha Julie! This is a very detailed, peculiar “review.” In fact, it is not much of a “review” at all; it is an unnecessary play-by-play of your stay… See, you forgot to include some major details, specifically pertaining to your behavior and attitude toward us all (other guests included). Most importantly, from your first morning waking up at Kalani, you...

Beautiful boutique hostel-style accommodation in a gorgeous spot on the North Shore. Booking procedures are a little unconventional (you have to request prices and availability) but the effort is more than worth it, and it's understandable why the owners are protective over what they've created! The Yellow Ginger Loft is a stunning room to stay in, amazing views and a...

Not only was this place beautiful & immaculate, but our private outdoor space was just spectacular. And the YOGA! It was AMAZING! Yoga with Amanda is a MUST TRY. She's fantastic.
