Guestbook comments from the manager

My name is Sabrina Brill, and we are from California. We stayed at Ko'olau Vista Villa the house in October with our children and some friends and their daughter. It was perfect for us - having our own pool, the Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom, the veranda off the upstairs bedrooms ( I just lounged on the chaise for hours and read a book after the kids passed out at night), the two outside showers the enclosed yard for my 2 year old son, and the hours and hours all the kids spent trying to catch a gecko... was the icing on the cake. We rode the bikes to the beach and everywhere. The beach down the street is amazing, it was breathtaking and great to walk down to the beach and just sit and drink coffee in the morning while the kids played in the waves.

Lianne & Ramon were SO SO SO very HELPFUL.... they had such a beautiful welcome basket we walked in and the house was so amazing to begin with. They were so good about cluing us in on all the best local places to go and eat and do stuff, they are a goldmine of information about the island and all it has to offer.

We had an amazing week and are planning to be there again soon. We loved it so much we started looking for jobs and a house to buy there.

It's not a scam...I had my reservations too, because it sounded too good to be true, but after 35 years of Oahu visits to Waikiki - I wanted something better for my family and this is it. I also looked at other rental's in Kailua... but this was the best price for the most amount of space and a pool. (For me it was the Jacuzzi tub that put me over the top) I was very impressed with Lianne & Ramon and how great they were with any questions or problems we had. We even helped them change a couple light bulbs.

Please feel to email me with any further questions you have... we had a great experience and would do it again in a flash, even with 3 kids in tow!

Perfect Family Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our crew of 12 which included two babies, one 10 months the other 18 months. The fenced in front lawn area was great to have for the babies to run around in safely and the impromptu game of catch. Kitchen was perfect size for all of the cooks to work together. Perfect number of beds and bathrooms with LeAnne making sure we had both a pack ‘n play along with a portable crib for the babies. Great neighborhood with an easy short walk to the beach. We loved it!

Mixed review on this one

  • 3 of 5

The location of the property is good, a few blocks from the beach (This one is kid friendly.) and a longer but very doable walk to town. The unit has a lovely small pool and overall is well equipped. The advertisement says it sleeps 14. We had 13 and fortunately some were children who were okay with sleeping on sofas and lumpy futons. This would not be the place for 14 adults. The property notebook even says it is set up to sleep 10 and any bedding you use beyond that is your responsibility to leave clean and put away. When we asked for more sheets, we got them very quickly. One of the sofa beds was broken so one of our teens who was short enough to use it did. Power went out which I guess is not unusual and when it came back on, garage door didn't work. Tenants before us put some glass and hard plastic down the garbage disposal so when we turned it on, it sounded horrible and even after fishing out debris, it finally died. Freezer door must be constantly monitored as it doesn't close well on its own. Also, outside garbage can was almost full when we arrived. Nichole, the property manger, was helpful in many ways (One example, she had a Christmas tree set up for us with lovely ornaments as souvenirs.) but the breaker box that might have put power to the door was never found by us. Part of the house is lovely and other parts are kind of very inexpensive motel. Some areas need deeper cleaning than just a vacuum and furniture dusting. We did some cooking there and the cooking pots really need to be replaced - badly scratched Teflon I would not use at home. I don't want this review to sound overly critical, but I guess I had hoped for more, even at Christmas. Most of my complaints are simple things that I did not expect to encounter and can be easily fixed.

Family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Great layout Adequate accommodation for 11 from 2 to 70.Kailua perfect holiday destination.

Some general maintenance and a thorough clean needed especially louvres ,windows and floor mats

BBQ was greasy and unusable despite promise to be cleaned

A couple of broken chairs and lights and absent umbrella stand.

However pool and house facilities were fine .Good supply of towels etc and beach/ pool toys

Good location handy to beach and town

Would be great value if minor problems attended to.

PS bonus game room/ 5th bedroom quite hot without a ceiling fan

Brilliant house for a big get together

  • 5 of 5

Kailua is a wonderful location on the east coast of Oahu and the beach 5 mins down the road made it possible to easily walk back and forth from the house. The town has everything you need with three supermarkets, a big Target and lots of independent shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the 10 min walk in for a coffee or lunch. We also found everyone friendly and helpful. There is a wonderful shop called Island Treasures to buy gifts to take home.

The house is well laid out with plenty of room to spread out. We were a family group of 11 with 3 children aged 5-7 and a baby. There is plenty of space to find a quiet corner if necessary and the pool is easily accessed from the lounge door and terrace. The pool is quite deep at the far end, but as the children all swim well and were always with adult supervision this was fine for us.

There are plenty of fans but no air con, so we found it quite hot at night having come from a much cooler climate.

All the rooms were clean and we all found the beds comfortable. Someone mentioned that the seating in the lounge was not comfortable, but we found it worked well with all the children and to be honest we did not spend much time sitting down.

We found food prep easy and it was great to have the space to sit together comfortably to share meals.

We all loved our time on the island and found the driving easy and the traffic was not as bad as anticipated.

Leanne was excellent and was always available if required.

I would highly recommend the company and property.

Great place for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Our multigenerational group of ten (ages from 20's to 70's) was very comfortable here. Plenty of space and privacy for everyone. And a dining table big enough to fit all of us. Well-designed and well-equipped kitchen. We also liked the living room area with the big TV and plenty of seating. Furnishings are functional rather than fancy. It's an older house, but well-designed. Lianne is a wonderful and thoughtful host--she went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Beautiful views of the mountains, and a pleasant and easy walk to Kailua Beach, farmer's market, and other shopping. The pool was also very popular. The pool does not have a fence around it so if you have small children, you will need to be extra careful. Note that the house is in a quiet residential neighborhood- the neighbors appreciate it when guests observe pool hours and are considerate about noise levels. We would definitely rent this house again.
