We had a fabulous visit with Audrey at her wonderful home. The house is situated in a peaceful, serene, clean and welcoming atmosphere -- and the sunsets are spectacular! We especially enjoyed our homemade breakfast each morning. The fruit plates were so delicious (mango, pineapple, lychee, peaches, melons, blueberries, strawberries!) , it was the perfect way to start our morning...

We found this B&B by accident and are so happy we did. We had some lovely days at Audrey's place; loved the daily fruit plate, the pool, the breeze and the safety of the place. Audrey is such a sweet person. The beaches around are lovely and the equipment provided pretty nice. We would come back straight away! You need...

Stumbled upon this place after finding out the B&B I had planned on was booked. Glad I did! This is a house with an elevated view overlooking the Pacific. Just awesome. The owners house is across the pool from a separate house with 2 bedrooms/2 baths. Peaceful place to sit on the lanai and watch the ocean. We stayed for...

When we found Makai Hale on line we looked at each other and said "This looks too good to be true--can it be this good?" It was!! After the hustle and crush of Oahu--Makai Hale was an oasis of calm and comfort. Audrey and Jerry had the vision and the talent to create a wonderful getaway. Her breakfasts are as...

My wife and I stayed at this BNB for four nights and after the first day we wished we had booked this place for four more. Location: It is great, especially for the beaches and ocean view.

We were fortunate to have found and spent time at Makai Hale this past April. It is a wonderful place to stay for some quiet or as a base to explore the island. We managed to fit in a lot of both! The best thing about the place is Audrey and level of service she provides. That's saying a lot...
