Amazing laini with a gorgeous view!!!
This house was perfect for our family vacation. We was taking our daughter to drop her at BYUH, and wanted to stay somewhere that was close to where she will be living. The house was plenty big for us and we even had my mother along with my husband and two teenagers. There was three bedrooms total, but my son insisted on sleeping in the amazing hammock every night. We locked the front of the house every night, but felt very safe to leave the back doors open for the crosswinds each night to stay cooler. There was no air conditioner but we figured out how to make the breeze ways work. My kids loved riding the bikes down for ice cream, and they found enough gear in the garage to snorkel and boogie board. The private access to the beach threw us off because it is on the other side of the peninsula. However it is only a five minute walk and is very beautiful. We walked to the end on the peninsula almost every morning to watch the sun rise. We cooked several meals at the house and it was pretty stocked(might recommend a few mixing bowls). Breakfast on the laini was the best! Chick and Cookie was great at letting us extend our check out time a couple of hours which made it easier to get our daughter moved into her dorm. The house manager even let us drop off our luggage 3 hours before check in, which was very appreciated because we had zero room in the car to grocery shop. We really enjoyed the selection of books, and took advantage of them to learn about the island. Even though it freaked me out at first, we loved, loved, loved the lizards that you WILL find around the house. Locals say it is good luck to find a baby gecko, and we was lucky enough to come across two of them. They are apart of the island life, so please don't take this as a negative, and please don't hurt them if you stay at this gray house. I would definitely rent this house again. The drive way is very narrow and we had to rent a van, and it was challenging backing out of it, but can be done. It would be easier if you rent smaller vehicles, or a short walk to the street. We loved the tip book about shopping and dinning. Our favorite food truck was the Island Breeze. Stop and have the lobster tacoes... amazing! Thank you for sharing your home with us Chick and Cookie we had an awesome vacation! Mahalo
