My daughter & I had a wedding at Loulu Palm farm estate on the North Shore of Oahu Hawaii. I chose Kalani HPL because of its location, price, & setting. We stayed in the Hibiscus room which had air conditioning, fan & tv. Personally I loved North Shore summer air temp as it was!! This place exceeded my expectations. Kalani... More

Bernie gave us updates every day on wave conditions for snorkeling, where to go eat, or other activities to do. We were both super glad that we stayed here. You... More

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... More

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.
