"Other than a couple of nights at ski resorts, this was our first owner owned vacation rental. At first, I was hesitant. There were signs posted that the facility did not have the resources of a hotel. I felt out of place and wondered if we would be treated nicely. I worried needlessly. The other occupants of the condo were extremely nice and welcoming. The condo itself was elegant with beautiful furnishings. Little amenities like basic cooking supplies, (salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar ect...,) ice chests, beach chairs, and beach towels, made our stay comfortable and made us feel at home. Waianae is a bit isolated and the town is not tourist oriented, but we enjoyed the isolation and the authentic Hawaiian feel. The view from the lanai was incredible. Kim was great to work with. We hope to stay there again soon."

"We just returned home from our stay at Dyan's place. Just as the reviews said, the condo was immaculate and easy to maintain. The kitchen was a delight. It had everything you need including a good cork screw for wine. We loved going to sleep each night with the sound of the waves. There is absolutely no reason a person wouldn't feel safe here. One needs a fob key for everything...getting in parking lot, getting in the Gate to grounds,getting on elevator. There is a full time security person and she actually is all over the premises. One evening I unlocked my door and left the key in the door. Less than 10 minutes later there was a knock on the door. It was Ms security letting me know what I had done. We loved the beach which is really a cove and pretty private. I'm afraid while we were there, there was more wind than normal. But I did go into water on a few occasions on the board. For you beachcombers, there is sea glass! My husband is ill and could not be sitting on the beach because it was difficult to get up so the balcony was wonderful for him. The sconce horn blowers who blew to the four winds every evening that the sun set were a treat to watch. My only beef is the traffic. It took me a few days to figure out I needed to reschedule our trips to the north shore, Honolulu or the windward side to after 10 am and return before 3 pm or stay and return after 6:30. The traffic is unreal. It can take up to 2 1/2 hours to go to the Honolulu area if you time it wrong. And there is also a thing called the "Pearl Jam". I believe this occurs on Wednesday from 2 pm and on. Pearl Harbor workers,military get off early that day. All in all, a wonderful relaxing place to stay. I so appreciated Dyan's caring about our circumstances and making my husbands bucket list trip a memorable one."

"We had 12 people all together including 2 kids, 2 teenagers and one "21" yr old (birthday occurred during the trip) as well as a 60 yr old (also had birthday there), 63 yr. old (myself, the oldest) and others in between. Everyone had a great time. Waianea has kind of a bad reputation but we felt very safe and the beaches were beautiful. We had 3 vehicles so everyone could do what they wanted. Us "older" folks enjoyed just hanging out at the pool although we did snorkel at Shark's Cove and took a great snorkel, dolphin watching catamaran trip right out of Waianae harbor which was very convenient. We also did the Pearl Harbor tour- Home of the Brave which was long but very interesting. The family with the kids did all kinds of adventures, jungle tour, swim with dolphins, catamaran ride and loved it all. The 21 yr. old did a zipline which she loved.
No complaints about the house. We knew there was no air conditioning on the lower floor and it was very hot but we managed. We cooked in most nights and had no issues.
21 yr old wanted to go into Waikiki for her birthday so we braved the traffic and had a lovely time at Rum Fire lounge in the Sheraton. Try and avoid going into Honolulu after 3 pm."
