We felt welcomed, wanted, and made to feel at home during our stay in Aunty Lydia’s Ohana.

An overwhelming feeling of hospitality from the hosts and through all communication and directions. AC units in the bedrooms were really nice. Outdoor showers were convenient and especially enjoyable on the days when it was more humid inside the house. The outdoor toilet was super handy, though a bit of a tight space.) We found just about everything we needed for cooking in the kitchen, and bought some charcoal to enjoy the bbq out back. Beach chairs were super handy. Towels and rags, etc. were in abundance (which was nice). Washer and dryer were also really nice to have (there was a small jar of laundry detergent available). We felt that this home was a very fitting setting for our stay, and we appreciated all the little touches that made it feel like a home. The home was well described by the other reviewers and are thankful for the opportunity to come to this beautiful island and have a “home” away from home here. Oh! One review complained about the distance to the beach. This house is not on the beach. It is on the highway. If highway noise bothers you, this may not be a good choice. But as for the walk to the beach, it felt very short to us, and we loved the convenience of being able to walk to the beach (short 2.5 blocks), walk to town(maybe a mile?), or even be able to walk to Hanalei Pier (1.2 miles) in the mornings!
