Awesome location ,lots of room,clean,attentive hosts.
We were overall very happy location is the best, close to stores shops restaurants gas etc and the best beach on the island Kailua Beach, very attentive hosts excellent communication some minor issues could be remedied, no stove, no dryer and no outlet in the bathroom made it a bit inconvenient at times but there is a drying rack, an extension cord and a microwave and hotplate for cooking, it's slightly dated and the fold out couch was dipped in the middle making it not so comfy for my kids, that being said the good location, communication open spaces and price made it a win.
A fabulous place to stay!
Our group rented all three units on this property, so this review covers our experience for the whole property rather than just one particular unit. This was my first experience with VRBO, and I’m a very cautious and skeptical person by nature. When I first saw the listing for these units, I thought it was way too good to be true, and was hesitant to book. I’m pleased to report the property is every bit as beautiful and amazing as the pictures indicate. We found all the units to be clean, comfortable, and well stocked with everything we needed. Mark and Tanya were there to greet us when we arrived and were extremely friendly and helpful. Throughout the entire process of booking the property and during the time leading up to our stay, my questions were always answered quickly. The prompt communications were awesome! We spent many mornings and evenings sitting out on the patio enjoying the beautiful surroundings while sharing our plans for the upcoming day or recounting the details of our Oahu adventures. I think the property worked extremely well for our group because we rented all three units. We were two couples and a family of five. I really appreciated the quiet neighborhood and location, yet easy access to beautiful beaches and many other locations and attractions on the island. I would highly recommend staying in any of the units on this beautiful property to anyone.
Renae and her family are the ideal guests: gracious, kind, and respectful. They took great care of the property and all the things they used, making sure they kept things in order.
We loved having them and we are extremely happy that they had a wonderful time with us. We would love to host them over and over again.

Beautiful place but noisy
My husband I stayed here late February 2018. When we arrived the place was wonderfully equipped with everything we needed, love that there is a washer available. We even were allowed to come a few hours early due to an early flight arrival which was very much appreciated. The apartment itself was very clean and quite spacious for just 2 people.
Our big issue with this location is how noisy it was. You are staying above a larger complex filled with visitors as well, however there is obviously a stairwell that connects the two units. Noise carries so much through the stairwell to where we could hear every conversation (or tantrum a child throws) the guests below us were having and they were by no means being excessively loud. There is a locked door that has been installed in the staircase doorway but it is clearly not fitted properly and there’s about a half inch of space around all edges of the door for sound to get in. Very disappointing to plan a vacation and have to listen to strangers conversations and tv shows the whole time. Every door, drawer and cabinet closing you hear. Glad I brought earplugs to sleep with at night. If that issue was fixed we would highly recommend this place! But for us privacy and quiet is a priority.
Aloha, we are very sorry for the inconvenience of the loud noise during your stay with us, we have addressed the situation by adding a Three Pass Microfiber Noise Reducing panel to the area you were referring to.

Everything as expected. Clean, second floor unit with large deck overlooking very nice pool/patio. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again!
Amazing spot for small family!
Perfectly set up, clean, easy and relaxing. Highly recommend!
Amazing Hawaii Oasis!!!
My husband, our two teenagers, and I LOVED this studio apartment!!! The studio had everything we needed to make our vacation special - equipped kitchen, plenty of towels for showering and for the beach, beach toys and equipment to borrow, exercise room, pool surrounded by tropical trees, outdoor grill, hammock, waterfalls, air conditioning, ceiling fans, ....the list goes on and on!!! We brought a twin air mattress for our daughter and it fit perfectly in the walk-in closet, so she had her own space and our son had the hide-a-bed to himself. We had fun meeting the other tenants that were renting the other units - the view from our balcony of the New Year's Eve fireworks throughout the entire Kailua valley was AMAZING and we invited the other tenants to join us on our balcony. What a fun way to bring in the New Year!!! The owners were great and so responsive to whatever we needed....going the extra mile for sure!!! We HIGHLY recommend any of the three units that they have on their property and will definitely stay here when we come again! What a refreshing change from the busy, congested Waikiki - Kailua is a fun town with a small theater, Safeway, Target, and great restaurants and shopping. Kailua and this VRBO is our new home-away-from-home!!!
Kailua, it's a great little town. Known as the water sports capital of Hawaii, Kailua is home to kayaking, Kite Surfing and many other water activities. Go hiking on nearby trails, visit some of the amazing shops and restaurants in Kailua town, grab a cup of coffee in the morning at one of the many cafes, or just relax by the pool outside your room!
