We stayed here for 3 nights and were absolutely amazed at how close we were to the ocean. At high tide, the waves were lapping on our deck! It's a cute place and was very clean. However being so close to the sea, maintenance issues...More

Aloha & mahalo for your review. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and the proximity to the ocean. You are correct...any closer and you'll need a snorkel to sleep at night.

I'm not at all surprised by this 1 star review. The facts are really quite different than they've stated. These guests originally booked a small non-oceanfront 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom rental but on their day of arrival we discovered that the kitchen sink was backed...More

Aloha & mahalo for your review. We do appreciate your feedback but are a bit puzzled by what you've written for the title that our beach is not swimmable. This is absolutely not the case and, as I'm sure you noticed, people from our area...More
