We spent 4 nights in the upstairs bedroom in the house, a comfortable, spacious room with a private bath. Patti is a very accommodating host; breakfast was always laid out for when we wanted it, we had use of all facilities (kitchen, laundry, etc), borrowed a cooler, and so on. She even invited us to dinner with her friends one night, but our plans for hiking in Waimea Canyon that day interfered. Location is in a quiet, residential neighborhood so even with a little of the ubiquitous rooster noise, we slept very well in that comfortable bed. It was only a few minutes off the highway to go wherever you want on the south and west shores, though on a future trip we might want to stay a night or two on the North Shore as well, because it's a bit longer of a drive to that part of the island and there's so much there. There is wireless internet throughout the house, and our cell phones worked fine there. The house has a wonderful view of the water, and is a place we felt right at home and free to come and go and enjoy our vacation. Patti was happy to answer all our questions and was very friendly, but never intrusive. She shares her lovely home with guests and makes them feel right at home. We highly recommend Hale Ikena Nui.
