DON'T PASS ON THIS PLACE! LARGE OR SMALL GROUPS WILL ENJOY THIS HOME
Amazing home! My husband & I went to Hawaii w/11 family members to celebrate my 50th b’day. I really wanted to stay in a house so we could hang out together. I looked at the Shogun house a few times but I couldn’t find a recent review so I thought something must be wrong with it. After several more weeks of looking, I decided to take a chance on the Shogun House. From the onset, the ABNB host/owner (Gidget/Tom) was extremely responsive, polite, & accommodating. Gidget provided us with excellent directions to the house, instructions to access the house, information about the neighborhood, & recommendations for activities.
The house is perched on a hill & is much larger than it looks. It was a little older than I expected and does not have central air/heat but it has numerous screened windows and plenty of fans to keep you cool during the day. The bedrooms are spacious, the common area has the most amazing view of the ocean, and the kitchen is moderate size but nothing to complain about. The dining area is large & easily accommodated our group. The house even has a covered outdoor eating area with a BBQ grill that is perfect for dinners outdoors! My entire clan enjoyed the space & had a wonderful time. Everyone loved the bedrooms, common spaces, beautiful greenery around the house, pool, & breathtaking sunsets.
The only minor downside is if you are planning to watch a lot of TV there aren’t many channels to choose from but seriously, did you really come to Hawaii to watch TV??:-). Anywho, when the add states the house comes with supplies, BELIEVE IT! I can write a separate review just to talk about the supplies the owners provide. There are cleaning supplies; all kinds of kitchen supplies; some personal supplies; beach toys, chairs, & mats; pool toys for all ages; pool shoes and flippers; linens; towels; paper products; dishes; utensils; crockery; and on, and on. Please go to the house before you go to the store to “stock-up”. The owner, Tom, lives a few blocks down the street & stopped by a couple of days to say hello & see how things were going. We are friendly people so this did not bother us. The grounds are full of trees & greenery so the landscaper person was there a couple of days during our vacation. I learned very quickly to keep the curtains closed in the morning. All in all Shogun House was a great decision & perfect for the fam! I would stay here again or in another one of Tom’s property because in my opinion he is a superhost!
Great location and great house with lots of room and accessories.
I would rent this house again. Gorgeous view, nice pool and fun, open living space. Owner is great, but neighbors are a bit of an issue if your group is loud after 9pm. It’s not a show-stopper but something to be aware of. It’s a quiet neighborhood with traditional open-air living so sound carries.
The property was very convenient as well as comfortable.
Ours was a family vacation of 10 people. The Sho-Gun property accommodated all of us very comfortablably. 3 teens had the lower level for sleeping, and the adults had the upper area with enough room for all. The house is very well equipped with lots of the necessities. Dishes, pots & pans, spices, paper towels, TP, lots of towels and wash cloths, etc...,
Overall, we were very satisfied with our accommodations, had a wonderful vacation, and would not hesitate to book the Sho-Gun home another time.
Nice house but comes with a chaperone
Great location for a vacation rental and the home is very nice. However, the owner likes to walk around the property and watch you thru the bushes and will walk up and stop by unannounced. Felt like he was always watching us, I paid for a vacation home not a chaperone.
You were booked just a week before arrival at a 50% discount. A BIG Discount -- with the understanding that we had scheduled intensive landscaping and tree trimming during for that week. In addition , we had a landscaper tear out 40+ bushes and plant over 40 new tropical bushes and fruit trees. You were agreeable to the work in order to get the big discount.
The OWNER of the landscape company is the gentleman you met. The owner of the home was not in town - during your stay.
You agreed to the BIG discount, now complain because the workers were around most every day ?
After your return , you asked for a refund in full ? When we turned the request down , you sent in this bad review.
Thank You Home Away / VRBO for sending us over 300 great families & groups since 2003. We have received all 4 and 5 star reviews over the 14 years. Perhaps we were due to get this l family. Three hours after their arrival , a neighbor called to inform us , the children were up in her fruit trees , picking and throwing the fruit at each other. Their mother said the neighbor was just over reacting ? Over the next couple of days , we had complaints of several more loud domestic - fight disturbances… with constant screaming at the children.
Dear VRBO - please send us another 100 great families as the previous 10 + years before , before you send us another dysfunctional group like this.
Family Trip to Paradise
We absolutely loved our stay in the Shogun Home. We were celebrating a family birthday with 7 adults and 3 kids. We could not have asked for a better place to celebrate. I would say that our greatest memories from the trip came from this home. We spent each morning drinking coffee looking at the ocean, each afternoon swimming in the pool, and each evening watching the sunset from the lanai. I cannot stress enough how gorgeous the view was from this home. The floor felt so open with the wall of windows looking out at the ocean. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. The apartment downstairs was perfect for the family member without children. We loved our stay here! The kids were in heaven exploring all this house had to offer.
We spent 2wks at the Shogun Home celebrating a 50th birthday and family reunion from Canada and Australia in total there were eleven adults . This house was absolutely stunning with the magnificent ocean views both from inside and the lanai . We also found the house perfectly stocked never wanting for any thing as we prepared our food for each meal . The pool was a great place to sit and watch the most stunning sunsets . The memories of our stay in this gorgeous home will never be forgotten
located 3 1/2 miles from the center of Kailua Kona.. yet rural enough that wild turkeys and pheasants walk through the yard . 5 minutes drive to several beach parks.
