Take the peacock away and amazing!
The house is amazing!!!! BEAUTIFUL VIEWS!!! It is a beach house which is a little older so it does need a little work but nothing to cause you not to rent this house. However, the peacocks that are within 10 feet of house that makes noise all night hurts this house. I brought ear plugs which helped some but the windows are always open in the living room etc. (you can not shut them unless you have a ladder) so it seems like they are in the house, the bottom right bedroom was the worse for the birds. They normally started everynight around 4 am. Also was not aware there is an apartment above the garage. Never heard anything from them nor saw them. Just think it should be disclosed. Dina was wonderful, every problem we had was addressed within hours. The elevator works sometimes. The door is not straight so someone must push on the outer door for the elevator to move sometimes. I am saying everything that was wrong with this house so that you can understand that when I say I would love to go back and stay here again you can understand just how wonderful the views are. Just don't put anyone in the bottom right bedroom due to the birds. The pictures are nothing like seeing the views with your own eyes. It is a wonderful place. Always felt safe and would rent this house again with not problems.
I have been vacationing in Honolulu twice a year for the past 10 years and this place is by far the most breath-taking view of the ocean. There is no need to ever leave this house b/c no view compares. You fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the ocean crashing against the cliff. The house was in great condition and any issues were addressed immediately by Dina. All I can say is that the pictures do not do this house justice. Yes, there is a bird sanctuary next door but who wants to sleep in when your vacationing in a home like this one? It was not as bad as I thought it would be. My family and friends had one of the most memorable vacations ever. Not sure how I will top this home for our next vacation....may just have to go back to this one :)
Breathtaking Views; Amazing Home!
What an absolutely fabulous home! When my husband and I walked through the door and saw the floor to ceiling view of the ocean, we literally gasped at the beauty and serenity we encountered. We have rented over 30 luxury homes both in and outside of the US, and Koko Head is by far the most exceptional home we have ever experienced. When we arrived, we were greeted by our concierge, Dina who was lovely and gave us a tour of the property. The home was very well mIntained,and very private - just what we were looking for. The pictures simply don't fully capture how extraordinary this home is. The peacocks next door never were a bother to us; frankly, their presence added to the Hawaiian ambiance and we had a great time taking photos of them from one of the many lanais. The air conditioning worked surprisingly well considering the very high ceilings and numerous windows, and there is even an additional free-standing air conditioning unit in the master bedroom that kept the room just right for a restful night's
sleep. There is no way to fully describe how amazing it is to wake up to the sound of the ocean waves breaking
right outside of your bedroom windows. I don't know how we will ever have a vacation that will top this one, but if (when) we return to Hawaii, we will definitely be return visitors to Koko Head!
This property is NOT what it appears to be in the photographs. There are SERIOUS issues with maintenance and overall property condition. We rented this home for a week and there were numerous problems with air conditioning, elevator not working, toilets overflowing, pool and spa pumps were not functioning properly and the general condition of this "luxury rental" was poor. BE ADVISED THERE IS A BIRD SANCTUARY NEXT DOOR WITH ROOSTER THAT CROW INCESSANTLY AND DON'T CLOSE THE GATE IF THE POWER GOES OUT YOU ARE TRAPPED.
Koko Head House
The Koko Head house is located in one of the most breathtaking views of Diamond, sunsets, sea life (we saw whales & sea turtles on a daily basis). Waking up to the sunrise each morning is something we are not able to do where we live. The house offered a lot of "little extra" amenities (thanks for having the elevator fixed for my mother in law to use) - coffee & filters; a great welcome basket; baggies; etc. which I did not need to buy. My suggestion would be to add a door to the Master bathroom as it is used also by the person in the 4th bedroom. Also, just let people know it is next store to a person who loves birds (peacocks; roosters, other birds) as that background noise is not for everyone.
We are very close to Waikiki and Downtown Honolulu. Waimea Bay is about 5 minutes away and is home to some of the best snorkeling on Oahu!
