Beautiful home up on a hilltop with views of Kaneohe Bay.
This home was very quiet and peaceful. We had three adults and two children in our party and it accommodated us all very well. Home is well stocked with all your needs and Cindy was very pleasant to deal with. Thank you for sharing your property.
Comfortable home, wonderful view!
Our family of 5 adults stayed here and we were very comfortable. Cindy came to greet us and go over a few things inside the home when we arrived. She was a wonderful hostess. We had some trouble finding the home as the link in the VRBO for directions didn’t work as a link and our phone GPS led us to the wrong area. And the phone number for Cindy was not correct in our VRBO information. But we eventually found the home, mostly based on the pictures of the house and it’s view (up on a hill). Cindy was going to work on making sure VRBO had her right phone number. The kitchen was not only well stocked with any needed cooking items, toaster and coffee; but the fridg had half & half, almond milk, catchup, butter. We should have gone to the home before grocery shopping! The home also has beach towels, beach chairs, boogy boards and snorkeling items which we took advantage of. The bathroom is well stocked with shampoo/conditioner, body wash, makeup remover cloths, Keenex, first aid kit, and nice fluffy towels. Each room has a ceiling fan and there are luvered windows throughout the home to keep those hilltop breezes flowing. There are ants on tropical islands, but there were ant “houses” throughout the kitchen cupboards and drawers and we didn’t have a problem with the critters. We had a dining room chair come a part on us when sitting on it, but I’m sure this will be remedied by the next guest’s visit. My only suggestion for improvement would be to get a new shower curtain rod for the shower, as the curtain is hard to open and close due to the rod’s condition, and to Draino the shower, which needs to be done with any drain from time to time. I would definitely return to this property on my next Oahu visit. Mahalo for a wonderful stay!
Incredible Hilltop Cottage
This house is awesome! On a hilltop with near 360 degree views of the beauty surrounding Kaneohe. The home is very well equipped. We were delighted to find a french press and a drip coffee maker. The beds were very comfortable and our party of 4 adults was extremely happy in this home.
We loved our stay at this property. I wish we would have booked for more days here. The cottage was very clean and recently remodeled. I will most definitely recommend this property to friends and family. Thank you, Cindy, for your hospitality!
Perfect Hawaiian bungalow
We just stayed at Cindy's little bungalow and had a great time. We were two families (mom and dad + toddler and mom + toddler) and the place had everything we needed. Rooms and beds were comfortable, living space was nicely laid out and well appointed. The decor was really nice and made the place have such a good vibe. There was a glass table, which we worried that the little ones would wreck, so we just moved it into the unused bedroom until we checked out. We cooked breakfast and some meals--the kitchen was stocked with everything--Cindy even left some fresh fruit from her property for us! It was really nice to have access to a nice pair of washer and dryer to do our laundry. There were even beach gear including chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear and towels. The views were amazing and you could hear the birds chirping all day. It was just really pleasant and relaxing. We enjoyed the close proximity to Kailua and Lanikai beaches, and ventured to North Shore and even hiked the Moana Falls. We travelled at the end of April, so the weather was pleasant and we had plenty of good breeze flow through the house, so we didn't even turn on the fans. The place was clean (and I'm a little OCD about cleanliness), so I totally felt comfortable walking bare feet and letting my little one play off the floor. I can't think of anything that would have made our stay better--it was perfect. We went on to stay at Aulani in Ko'Olina, and we have decided that we actually liked Cindy's house better. It was the authentic Hawaiian experience and we loved it. My only suggestion, seeing that the property has great handy resources, would be to add an outdoor shower one day. We tried very hard to get all the sand off ourselves before coming back in after beach days, and an outdoor shower would be great for that! We highly recommend Cindy's place, and would rebook in a heartbeat. Mahalo for your hospitality!
Isabelle thank you for such a kind review - an outdoor shower is an excellent idea.
Mahalo! We enjoyed your visit!
Perfect family getaway
My family and I loved this very homey cottage located on top of a hill surrounded by views from every window as well as beautiful tropical foliage. Breath taking! We have rented from VRBO before and I have to say this is my favorite. The cottage is very clean and has a beautiful modern kitchen. This beautiful home is located on the Windward side (eastern) near most attractions including the best beach on the island of Oahu (Kailua beach) . Cindy and Ron have stocked this home with everything you will need. I appreciated the washer and dryer which lighted up packing for my family. We especially enjoyed the thoughtful welcoming gift of fresh island fruit, as well as the binder giving tips of near by places to see, places to eat and nearby shopping, nice touch! (Check out the Farmer's Market as soon as possible for fresh produce. It's noted in the binder.) The cottage included the use of the snorkeling gear, bodyboards, beach chairs, beach towels and an umbrella. Everything needed to spend the day at those white sand tropical getaways! I can't say enough about this lovely cottage. Thank you again Cindy and Ron for making our family vacation feel like home away from home.
Michelle and family were a pure delight! Mahalo for staying with us!
