Steve and Laretta were fabulous hosts who went out of their way to ensure that we had the best possible time. The accommodation was as described and we enjoyed cooking and relaxing after our active days exploring the beautiful coast. Laretta introduced us to Danny a local surf guru who gave my daughter an awesome lesson. He was a font of local knowledge. Steve encouraged us to have a spa one afternoon which we highly recommend as it gave us a opportunity to really see the garden and all the gorgeous fruits ripening on the trees. We gorged ourselves on the abundant supply of delicious fresh papaya. We have travelled the entire island and this coast has the nicest beaches.

Laretta & Steve are two of the nicest people I have ever met and I am so happy to be able to visit them again at Papaya Patch for the second time. They are the sweetest people, very accommodating to our needs, full of great tips and suggestions on places to go and things to do around the island, and extremely generous, sharing their fruits from their garden, and any gear you may need for a day at the beach. Their hospitality is second to none, and I have fallen in love with Waianae largely due to what they've shown me. I will definitely be back to visit again in the future! My boyfriend & I give our sincerest thanks for an amazing stay! ❤

This was our first time using Air BnB, What a delightful experience! Totally exceeded our expectations. The home was spacious, well appointed, clean and well maintained. It was a super convenient location to the beach. The atmosphere was truly laid back and welcoming. We had a wonderful opportunity to meet and visit with the other guests in the home. Additionally, Laretta was an incredible hostess. We appreciated her taking the time to give us a tour of the area, it was invaluable information. In addition, Laretta provides a variety of superb quality beach/snorkel gear to check out. We highly recommend Laretta's place for a true Hawaiian getaway.

Local nurse into health and wellness; there's a garden in the back most of the year. I like a serene, calm environment that promotes good healthy fun! Enjoy ocean activities, and I know little secret places that I'll share with you when you come. The five things I just can't live without would be connecting with my grown kids and my one grand child; Knowing Stephen is here, and the 5 beautiful, loving cats and 1 sweet, soulful dog that lives on this acre with us; Gardening and creating meditative spaces to go to and relax.Last, but certainly not least, would be creating a restful, clean place where guests from all over the world could come and feel "at home and accepted" during their travels. My favorite travel destination is Hawaii ! Favorite motto: "If you think education is expensive, try ignorance"." I would rather wear out, than rust out", "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".....
