Good view and beach. Nice house with good furnitures and decoration. Nice for families.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very good condition. Just take into account that the house is in the countryside and faraway from the city and other facilities (ie: 30 minutes supermarket). We had a problem with hot water and they fixed. We were willing to stay a few more hours after the check out (because our plane was delayed) and they didn't allow us. We had a good time with kids and seniors.

Owner's Response: We always try to accommodate late check outs when possible. After asking my cleaning crew if they could postpone the scheduled cleaning, I was able to add an extra hour at no charge. The cleaners have several properties scheduled and try to be flexible but have to stick to a schedule to allow enough time to have the house throughly cleaned for the next check in. Check in and check out times are clearly stated on the contract that guests sign. Hot water issue was resolved asap, a quick adjustment in temperature from the plumber. We were thankful for guests understanding.

Lovely property, away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

This home was a wonderful base for our first visit to Hawaii. It was even nicer than the photos show, nicely furnished, comfortable, very clean, with all the amenities. The location was perfect for us, right on the water, next to a park, but on a main road (but not a very noisy one) that made it easy to get to other parts of the island. It is about a half hour from Honolulu, and a similar distance to the North Shore. You can watch the sunrise from the beach, swim and snorkel right from the property. We also did a couple short hikes without having to drive. We had one small issue with a beeping sensor related to the alarm system, but Karin helped us resolve it quickly. I would highly recommend staying here!

This is the place you are looking for

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a fantastic and beautiful house away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki I highly recommend this house. We and about 70 other people where on the islands to attend a wedding and after seeing some of the other rentals we made the best choice. The property sitting right on the beach, a wonderful outdoor patio, and accommodations were the best. I will definitely be rebooking this property for future travels to Oahu. Now for those who may be visiting the Oahu from New Mexico I also highly recommend Uncle Bobo’s which is right across the street, he is from Alamogordo and the smoked meats the BBQ was excellent. The Owner Karin was very responsive and a pleasure to work with.

Picturesque paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we dreamed of and more. The location on the beach was absolute perfection. It was amazing to be able to wake up every morning, go outside with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise. We spent a lot of time sitting in the backyard and taking in the lovely beach views before us. We greatly enjoyed the lush green mountains that acted as a perfect backdrop for this wonderful home. The lawn furniture was plenty and comfortable and allowed us to be in the sun or shaded by the trees or the lanai. Even though it would sporadically rain, the covered lanai kept us protected. The landscape of the yard was absolutely beautiful- lush green and beautiful flowers. The house itself was exactly as described and was perfect for our needs. We are a family of four and enjoyed having three bedrooms which were all nicely decorated. We appreciated the unit air conditioners which really helped to keep the house cool. The bathrooms were another awesome feature that we enjoyed- they were fantastically decorated and styled. The house was also furnished really well and had more than enough towels, beach towels, and swim equipment. We also liked that the house had a gate in the front which helped separate the house from the park next door.

We rented a car, so we were able to get around pretty easy. We enjoyed eating at the food trucks in Laie, stopping at the different roadside shops on the side of the road, visiting the Dole Planation, and just enjoying our time on the island. My father also enjoyed grocery shopping at FoodLand's where he found great deals on steaks that he grilled at the house. We did venture to Honolulu and Waikiki, which made us all the more thankful that we stayed in this wonderful house away from the hustle and bustle. We also really enjoyed working with Karin! She always was there to answer any questions we had and called before and after our stay. We are already talking about when we can come back here again! The house and the location was absolutely perfect!

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for a relaxing getaway and to have privacy. Was so easy for my dad of 89 years young to get around. It has a perfect location on the island, sites and shopping close enough. Super quiet.

Car: recommended

Located on the country side of the island you are away from all the crowds of Waikiki. Kualoa Ranch is about a 5 min. drive east . The ranch has lots of activities for all ages, restaurants, tours and horseback riding.
