My husband has been staying here every time he comes out to Hawaii for the past three years. He has always raved about it to me, so I was excited to check it out. Even though he raved about it, I was still in awe when we arrived, and my expectations from what he told me were exceeded. That's hard...

There is only one hotel on the North Shore - "Turtle Bay" and it was about $400 per night. I stayed at Kalani lodge for under $50 per night and I thought the atmosphere was cooler than it was at Turtle Bay. It's about a 3 minute walk down to the beach and most of the time it was practically...

Had the best week on the North Shore. Bernie and Maria are the most gracious hosts and made our stay very memorable. From amazingly helpful information about all there is to do, to having the best place to stay, we couldn't have found a better place to enjoy the waves. Much thanks and will be back soon. Aloha..

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.

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We at Kalani Hawaii are not your typical "place to stay." As a fusion of all accommodation styles we are a unique, boutique Private Lodging offering our guests the finest accommodations on the North Shore. What you will experience at Kalani Hawaii is an escape from the everyday rush, a peek through the palm trees to see how life exists when you're on island time. We offer once in a lifetime memories, beautiful vistas, short strolls to beaches, breathtaking sunsets, snorkeling, world class surfing, and much, much more. For the privacy of our guests we do not take walk-ins and are reservation only. This being the case, we do try our very best to book last minute accommodations when space is available. If you have any questions or would like to book a reservation, please contact us through our website. ... more   less
