We stayed in the studio in the Ehu Kai cottage; nice kitchen and all the space we needed. One night of high tide and high winds, the waves were splashing up on the little seawall and hitting our window. You can't get much closer to the ocean. Cousin Otilani was very nice and handled everything. The black kitten dropped by for a visit every day. Nice local grocery store right up the street. Not much food, but it's all very good; Papa Ole's, Surfin' Tacos, and the Kahuku shrimp trucks. Gorgeous sunrises on your patio. Not surprisingly, your stuff will get damp and salty.

When we booked the Hale Ali'i, for two couples the price was so good we thought for sure we wouldn't find all to our satisfaction. WRONG! We looked at the beach from our windows and were only a few steps away! We ate an the lanai and enjoyed the sound of the surf and at night the almost full moon. There was a slight moldy smell in the condo, which, if you have lived next to the ocean you recognize as coming with the territory. The only thing the kitchen was missing was a hand mixer and 9x13 pan and we were able to purchase a foil one at the market we could walk to and we used the onsite blender to mix.
We went snorkeling off the beach just 5 minutes walk from our condo and bogey boarded at Pounders beach and Hukilau which were both close.
We recommend Papa Ole's and Surfin Tacos for great food--You could also walk to both!
I also can't say enough about Oti and Zak! Very helpful. The weather had turned rainy so Oti didn't charge us for the daily use of chairs and boards--even when the sun came out again. Mahalo! Along with the weather we were able to witness some *** waves!
We have already recommended to three of our friends that they would love to stay here. Our daughter is thinking about staying at one of the smaller condos for her honeymoon this summer! And, we will definitely be back! Much Aloha!

We really enjoyed our stay. Cousin Zack was very helpful. I highly recommend and will definitely stay again on next visit to Hawaii.
My fiance and I absoultely loved this little studio! It was perfect for us for the week we were there. The property is very well taken care of and Oti was *** to work with. We would stop by just to say hi and would find more things to do and always had great conversations. We have already highly recommended this place to family and friends! I can't wait to go back- we wish we wouldn't have had to come back to PA's snowy winters.
Our daughter was getting married and we needed a place that would hold all of us(14people). So we actually rented 2 places the Sea spray was also rented ( other couple had a kinda honeymoon -so to speak) anyway we were satisfied .onti was very very very helpful and kind. my only complaint from the balcony house is we didnt get to meet ZACK !!!!! lol. store close by that you could walk to.provided washer and dryer,hot tubs and kind words.thanks again for having everything ready for us and getting us anything else we needed.
