5 Star Location and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Home was all we expected, beautiful, and the location is amazing. Lots of room - 3 family groups, 9 people and everyone was happy. Kitchen is superb, and dining/living areas are terrific. Pool was a huge hit, even with the beach only a block away. Morning walks to Kalapawai Mkt for capuccinos is a ritual hard to leave behind! (With Island Snow shave ice just a block beyond the Market!) We felt very much at home here, especially as it was a revisit to our time at Kaneohe over 40 years ago. Owners Shawna & Cliff are delightful and their personality is reflected in the property. And, Cornelia the chicken is a treasure; adored, fed and played with by our 6, 8 and 12 year olds with help from Opal. A superb choice, which enhanced our extended family vacation and was central to an enchanting visit to lovely Hawaii. Being here for the 4th of July Kailua celebration was a special treat - parade in the afternoon and a huge fireworks show literally in your front yard was an amazing bonus. A very hearty 5 star recommendation from the Meier/Stone families. Mahalo to Shawna & Cliff!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generations family had an amazing week at this house. The location is fabulous, and the space and layout worked perfectly for us. Our toddlers were endlessly fascinated by Cornelia the hen and couldn't wait to greet her each morning. Cliff and Shauna are terrific hosts and made us feel welcome. I can't think of any way this vacation could have been better.

Gorgeous home, beautifully maintained with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this lovely home. There were six of us, three generations, and everyone had a great time. The location is perfect and our hosts were delightful. We were here over Thanksgiving and they brought over food from the local "imu" - a community pit for roasting meat. Such a treat! The beach is spectacular and a quick walk across the park but the yard and the pool are great too so we were on the lanai a lot. Cornelia the little chicken is a sweetie! We give this home and our hosts five stars!

Beautiful Large House with great views!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house a little earlier than check in after a long flight with kids. We were warmly greeted by Cliff's wife and daughter. The house was perfect for our needs and had plenty of room for us. This was our first trip to Hawaii and had family with us who stayed at another house close by. They come here every year and kept commenting that this house was the best they have seen in Kailua. It is a big spacious house that has great ammenities, a beautiful pool and is so close to the beach and the park. It also has AC, which may sound silly to some and I assumed it was standard because we are from New Orleans (it's a must there!) but it's not a necessity here. The kitchen is well stocked and even has two dishwashers which is helpful for large groups. The beds were comfy and there were plenty of bath towels and beach towels as well. The older boys loved using the pool everyday and just hanging out when we weren't running around. I can't say enough nice things about the house. It was perfect for our family and a great meeting spot for our extended family staying close by.

Cliff and his family stayed on the property in another house and it was nice to have them there if we had any questions. They came in and out through the side of the yard, which was very polite, but we wanted them to feel at home as well. Most importantly they are such a nice family and we appreciated their hospitality. We hope to return again one day. It was such a nice trip - even the jet lag!

Lovely!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Beachside home was delightful. Just a hop, skip and a jump over Kailua Beach Park and you're on the beach and in the surf. Lots of room to spread out, beautiful large kitchen, lovely view from the second floor - instant relaxation. Having the bike trail so close to the house was great - we spent lots of time taking beautiful walks there, and Cornelia, the sweet little hen, was a hit with the children and adults alike. The owners were very accommodating and were quick to address a problem with the pool. All the interior doors are louvered, so sound carries easily, which was a bit of a problem because the baby wasn't feeling well and cried a lot. More cleaning supplies would be good (my family is somewhat fastidious). Overall, we had a wonderful vacation.

Beautiful home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this first class home on the quiet side of Oahu. There were 3 generations of family members ages 3-69 sharing this beautiful home and there was plenty of room for everyone to congregate as well as finding places to be alone. The beach, which the 3 grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed, was a 1 minute walk from the house. When they tired of the beach, we simply walked home, took an outdoor shower and jumped into the pool. The resident chicken was a hit with the children, so much so that they are now hounding their parents to buy them a chicken. The owners were great from the beginning of reservation process to the day we left. They answered every question quickly and gave great instructions for best use of home and area. We made good use of the beautiful kitchen and BBQ for dinners each evening which made this feel just like home. It was a sad day when we had to pack up and leave, but we hope to return to our home away from home next year. Thank you, owners, for sharing your treasure with us.
