                            I rented the Kalama bedroom for 3 weeks. Barbara is just lovely- VERY accommodating & very knowledgeable about Oahu- the ideal hostess!! The unit was exactly as pictured- just perfect for my needs! It is less than a 10 minute walk to beautiful Kailua beach- and Barbara supplies beach chairs, beach towels, totes- everything you'd need! I would not hesitate to rent this property again!

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, sightseeing, tourists without a car.

                            The rental was as pictured. Barbara was very nice and answered all our questions about the area. It is just a short walk to the beach with some snorkel gear and boogie boards provided. This side of the island is very green and tropical feeling. It is quiet and laid back, not like Honolulu. If you are looking for a family friendly, quiet location, close to the beautiful Kailua beach this is it! It was nice to have a large section of white sand beach to yourself without someone right next to you. We would come again and stay on the winward side of the island for sure. We saved $ by eating breakfast in the unit and packed our lunch. It was also nice to have a washer/dryer so we didn't have to pack as much clothes for 8 days. Thank you Barbara for your hospitality!

                            Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, families with teenagers.

                            Owner response: We are so glad you had a great vacation. The Hiilani unit is ideal for families to spread out and relax. We try to make your stay as if you were visiting a "local" family. Please come again. Mahalo, Barbara

                            There are two properties. We were in the small studio and it is in serious need of renovation and upkeep. The photos of the outside are misleading because they are of the owners backyard, right outside their sliding doors. The ventilation in our unit was non-existent. The glass door was louvered, but the mechanism was broken so couldn't get air from there. The windows were covered with dark curtains and shears mounted on a wood pole so couldn't pull them aside to get air from the window. The doll house size air conditioner sounded like a small plane taking off, and it was mounted on the wall right next to the head of the bed. The kitchenette consisted of a formica counter with a microwave and small refrigerator. No sink, you had to wash dishes in the bathroom sink. Two small wooden folding chairs and no table to eat at. It was so unpleasant in the room that we didn't stay there except to try to sleep. SO DISAPPOINTED IN THIS UNIT. We have reserved others at Homeaway with great results so we were stunned to find such a substandard unit on this website.

                            Owner response: Our vacation rental goal is to provide an enviroment for our guests that will help them have a relaxing vacation. We want them to love our islands as we do. We have a large and small unit. They are pictured on our website. Both units were totally renovated last September. We then had a professional photographer take pictures of the units and the yard. We invite our guests to enjoy their breakfast, lunch and dinner in our yard. We have 2 tables by the pool and one in the lanai for their use.We also provide a grill outside for those who would like to cook in the small unit. The large unit has a kitchen and its' own grill. The small unit does have a small AC because it is a small room. One of our guests suggested many years ago that we install shear curtins behind the drapes for more privacy.We appreciate the suggestions of our guests. The Kalama(sm) unit has a breakfast bar with a coffee maker, a microwave and toaster. We supply a small refigerator for the guests that wish to have cold drinks,etc. It is very unfortunate if we have a guest that is disappointed with their experience in our unit. We have had much positive feedback from guests in the Kalama unit and also the Hiilani unit. They have said, It's a great value for the price. We would hope to keep improving the units in any way possible in the future. Mahalo

                            We had a fantastic stay in the Kalama unit. The unit was clean, well equipped and the bed was super comfortable. Barbara was lovely, very welcoming and easy going. The pool was a great bonus. The location was great with a short walk to the beautiful beach and a short drive to the main shops. Thank you for having us.

                            Owner response: Mahalo, We are so happy to share our home with wonderful guests from all over the world. We feel the blessing is ours when they have a great vacation. Aloha ke Akua, until you return again.

                            The unit was very clean, modern, and close to beach. The owner was very nice and helpful. She even bought some food for us before we arrived. Great place to stay in Kailua.

                            We would highly recommend staying at the Home Away rental when in Kailua! The listing and pictures are accurate to the smallest detail. The home is very well maintained and clean. Though we didn't meet the owners (on vacation themselves), we were able to communicate via email prior to arrival, so had all of our questions answered. Everything that we needed was there - and more! It is within easy walking distance to the beach (small maps provided), close to the center of Kailua and shopping, yet quiet and private. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this Kailua home, and would stay there again.

                            Hi Lee and Jodi! We are still reminiscing our wonderful stay in Oahu and how we enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home. We checked-in that day of the tsunami warning and was scared how things would turn out. Fortunately, it turned out well and we were out and exploring the scenic town of Kailua the very next day. We spent our first week in Waikiki and the second week in your home. We were glad we planned it out this way as we were able to just relax and enjoy the beach... this part made it feel more like a vacation to us. We were very comfortable in your home and found everything we needed. We saved a lot of money by cooking our meals but there were also good restaurants in the area when we felt like eating out. We also explored the beautiful beaches of Lanikai and Waimanalo which were also closeby. Thank you very much for having us. We will definitely recommend your place to family and friends. We hope to be back soon. PS. Your banana bread is delicious!
