We loved this house. Super clean - on par with the best we've ever rented. Very well stocked with cooking basics, basic toiletries, beach toys and most everything you could need. The owner couldn't have been nicer to deal with. The area is quiet and we felt very safe. The beaches right by the house aren't especially appealing, but a short drive will take you to any number of fantastic, world-class beaches. We had several days where our family had an entire beach to ourselves. This is a quiet part of the island - there aren't many food options and most of them have closed by 5 pm. If you want more activity but also want to be away from Waikiki I'd recommend the North Shore. But if you want to get away from the crowds this area can't be beat. Only negatives are some local critters - wild roosters that will occasionally wake you up early, and a few geckos that find their way into the house from time to time but otherwise leave you alone. We'd definitely stay here again if we come back to Oahu.
