When searching for ocean front estates to have our wedding ceremony and reception at, this place stood apart from the rest, and it did not disappoint. The home from top to bottom was absolutely stunning. All of our guests kept asking how we found this gem. Our stay here was simply memorable; the best part was a mama chicken and three little chicks who kept us entertained as they kept trying to come in - we loved those little chickens haha! Dusty, the caretaker, was great and he gave a great walk-through that made us feel comfortable about our stay. I've read on here that some people felt he was constantly coming over and somewhat intrusive, but we never got that vibe from him AT ALL. He made sure we were all set and gave us our space to prepare for our wedding and hold our event (I would give him even extra points for just looking cool too - awesome beard!). While we only had four couples including ourselves staying here, our wedding had close to 40 guests (not counting all of the vendors) during the day of the event and this estate accommodated this number easily. My biggest advice for having a wedding here: Use reputable vendors as they will already know this venue very well. Weddings are held here all the time so everyone from my caterer (Memoirs), DJ (Spectrum Entertainment), and florist (Easley Designs) knew this place like the back of their hand. This is extremely valuable as they can navigate the coordination / planning of your wedding in this home (Super helpful!) and understand all the rules and regulations to prevent damage to the property as well as remain respectful of surrounding homes and guests. As an extra advantage, we rented the 5 bedroom home next door which allowed some family and friends to stay close by and since the property is only separated by large plants, we did not feel like we were sharing the property with some other vacationers (or possibly disturbing anyone during our event). We cannot wait to come back to Oahu and when we do, this estate is our #1 choice when we do!!!!!
This is an amazing property. All the bedrooms are exceptional, but the two master bedrooms on the second floor are gorgeous and well-appointed. We stayed for a week in late July 2016 with four adults and four children (ages 5 to 13). The beach access is fantastic and comes as close to a private beach as you can get. Bring your boogie board! The pool is a real gem as well. It is a perfect pool for the kids to play in after spending some time at the beach.
Dusty the caretaker was very responsive and helpful. The house was clean and very comfortable. We were sad to leave.
There are only a couple of negatives I would offer, and they are the only reasons I give the property 4 stars, rather than 5 stars.
1. The sliding doors in the home need some repair work. They were very difficult to move and slide, obviously due to the salt air and sand. Not a big deal.
2. This is totally outside the control of the property owner or manager. We were surprised by the amount of trash washing up on the beach during our stay. This was not seaweed or coconuts or the usual ocean debris. This was mostly plastic trash - little tiny bits and large pieces. Not sure if that was just a one-time bad luck occurrence (we had a tropical storm stirring up the water during our visit) or a regular occurrence. Perhaps the owner can shed some light on that. Some days the surf was clear of debris, but a couple of days it was really noticeable the amount of debris is the water. It kind of made you go "ewww." This would wash up on shore creating a line of trash on the beach.
Otherwise, this place is as close to paradise as I have come. Would not hesitate to stay there again.
Some general comments about the North Shore. Be sure you rent a car. Great snorkeling at Shark's Cove! Sunset Beach is beautiful. We zipped lined at CLIMB Works and hiked to the Crouching Lion. We surfed in Hailewa. But, it takes some travel. Bring groceries and booze! The liquor store pickings are slim, but you can find some in a pinch just down the street!
The Polynesian Cultural Center is worth a visit (especially the evening), but you may not want to stay there a full day. A little goes a long way.
Wonderful house! Wonderful trip!
We held our wedding at the Hale Koa home this past month and it was the best experience we've ever had!! The detail of the house was so beautiful, there wasn't much we needed to add! The beach was steps from the house, spacious. The house keeper, Dusty was super nice, there and available for anything we needed =)
We were thrilled to find this property just as the photos. Love the semi-private beach. It's out of the way, but close to many enjoyable excursions and groceries store. The home is a work of art, designed to maximize enjoyment of its beach site location. Dusty, the caretaker was very helpful, prompt and accessible. Highly recommend this property.
We were happy to find such a beautiful property and house to have our daughter's baby shower and
get a way for our family. Property manager's response was quick. Care taker Dusty was very accommodating.
He was really nice and easy to work with..on setting up for our event and stay vacation. My grandaugther loved
access to the pool with warming fire pit and nice sandy beach. We even got to see a Hawaiian monk seal who
decided to rest on the shore. My husband loved the surround sound system throughout the house.
Thanks for a wonderful time. We we would love to come back.:)
We were very pleased at this property. We used this for a Company Party and the location was perfect. House was in great condition and the property manager/caretaker were very accommodating.
The only thing that I would suggest is adding a cell-phone booster in the house. You get good reception outside the house, but inside has no coverage.
Perto Ponto de Pounder.
Golf: Turtle Bay Golf Course, campo de Arnold Palmer PGA é de apenas 10 minutos de distância.
