My husband and I were married two years ago and never had a honeymoon. We came to Oahu for a friend's wedding and decided to make the trip a combination visit and honeymoon all in one. We wanted to stay on the quiet side of the island as opposed to the busy, bustling, and crowded Waikiki. We expected the Zen Tree House to be nice, but it truly exceeded our expectations! A 40 second walk to a quiet beautiful beach, and nestled among a neighborhood of beach homes, the place gave me a wonderful first impression of Hawaii! The Kitchen and living room are spacious, tastefully decorated, and comfortable. The high ceilings are so cool and tons of windows allow for the sounds of Hawaiian birds and gentle sea breezes to flow throughout the "treehouse" that makes it a true Zen experience! Not to mention two spacious balconies on opposite sides of the condo. There is a large bathroom with 'his' and 'her' sinks, the counter is spacious, and the shower, which has a window, is made of an attractive travertine material and stone flooring that makes you feel like you're in a tropical paradise. There is a high efficiency washer and dryer for guests to use on the first floor. You get the feeling that the host really cares about her guests. There is welcoming feeling when we first walked up to the pad for the first time. On the kitchen counter was a basket of chocolates, Kona coffee and a assortment of native fruits and a welcome letter with advice on places to go in the area. The friends of ours who were married on this trip, visited us one day at the Zen Tree House and were so impressed with the place, they said it should have been their honeymoon suite! The new bride, who is from Kailua, said that we probably picked one of the nicest vacation pads to stay at on the island. In this fast pace world, it is so nice that you can still go to places like this, that give you that old fashion hospitality feeling. We will definitely be back again!
