  • Can't wait to come back! Peaceful, personable, perfect

    "On a "girls'" trip (my first time to Oahu and first time using VRBO), my friend was really focused on beachfront houses - but Dotty & Peter's property ended up being one of our very favorite places of our whole trip! Trust me, *do not skip this beautiful location just because it isn't right on the water*. You are as close to amazing beaches as you'd be anywhere (5 minutes by car), plus the safety and privacy of being just a few minutes (literally) up the hill. The owners are super kind, engaged and on-site; only there if you need them, but so refreshing to know that it wasn't simply a turn-key property; it's well looked after and cared for, as are their guests. This was truly one of our best stays on Oahu, and I'd book it again in a heartbeat. You're up on the hill/mountain side, but I didn't expect such gorgeous ocean views or that we would be just as close to the North Shore's great beaches as we were in other "beachfront" rentals where we had to hop in the car to get to a swimmable beach anyway! We stayed in the Hibiscus Suite which I expected to be small but was in fact very breezy and super-spacious, immaculately clean, with gorgeous terra cotta tile floors, wonderful ceiling fans and a full kitchen, plus two rooms with lovely beds. It was just my friend and I, but it would be wonderful for traveling couples or a family. There's even a washer/dryer! Wow. We didn't use it, but astounding; if I were traveling with a family, that would be a godsend. The screened porch/lanai was huge, beautiful and relaxing; when we arrived, we actually skipped going to more beaches just to stay and read and enjoy the scenery and fresh air. I wasn't initially sure about the location and expected to be far up in the hills away from the ocean, but that's not what this is at all - in 5 minutes, you can be on the most beautiful beaches on the whole island. Dotty and Peter were available if you needed them, friendly, accommodating, and promptly returned our security deposit. Communication was excellent all the way through our rental experience from start to finish (this is my first time renting through VRBO) and I can't wait to bring my husband back to this magical place! Thank you for the beautiful stay and your kindness, Dotty and Peter - I look forward to returning!"

  • Relaxing Labor Day Family Week in the Highlands!

    "Great family vacation - age range from 60's to early 30's. Amazing Home! this is the 2nd time we have rented it. The house is spotless, and contempoary with an updated feel. Perfect location you can run in the am; walk to restaurants and short drvie to Sea Bright, Long Branch and of course Sandy Hook! The NYC ferry is so close and less than 1hr. In the evening we would walk to some cute little resturants in town with great water views. The owner Robin was very helpful ; and we could contact her via text if we had any questions. We would, definitely rent again!We had a WONDERFUL GOOD TIME there. We THANK the owner for sharing it with us.Thank you Robin"

  • Amazing home!

    "We were thrilled with this home. It was so open to the yard and pool, the view was great. Beautifully decorated, kitchen fully stocked, beach towels for the pool, the house had more than what we needed. Nice desk area off the kitchen to use our computer for business. Great location, we walked to El Paseo for breakfast and dinners and of course shopping. The property manager was so easy to work with and helpful, called up right back with the answers to any questions we had. The next time we plan another trip to this area, we will be booking this wonderful home again."

  • Beautiful home, landscaping

    "We stayed for spring break in 2014 and couldn't have asked for a nicer home! Only a 10 minute walk to the beach and the pool area was beautiful! Owner and management was very nice and helpfull! Only one thing I would highly recommend is a heater for the pool. It was late April so the days were only maybe 60's-70's with of course the nights being cooler so the pool although nice to lay around was useless at this time of the year! Beautiful home none the less!"
