Paradise in Kailua!
We enjoyed our visit in Kailua, staying in the beautiful estate of Walter. We loved the fruit basket that was left for us. Lovely touch!
We had a dream come true vacation.
The room were spacious and decorated very elegant. There were large flat screens TVs throughout the house. The view was beautiful over looking the swimming pool, tennis court and looking at all the palm trees and flowers. In certain room on the upper level we could see the ocean.
The swimming pool was clean and refreshing. The house was sparkling clean and overall it was really a nice experience. We loved the estate, the price was right for us.
There were shopping close by and good Thia Food restaurants in the area. Also, Whole Food Store and Target were in the area for us to enjoy.
I would highly recommend this estate for anyone who is looking for a great place to enjoy their vacation. I definitely would like to go back next year.
Ideal location, beautiful landscaping, spacious
Overlook Kailua on a windy country road. Property was close to everything, Kailua less than 10 minutes, Kailua Beach 15 minutes, Lanikai Beach 15 minutes, Pillbox hike 15 minutes, Honolulu 25 minutes (with no traffic), Waikiki 35 minutes, Pearl Harbor Memorial 25 minutes. Pretty sunrise from the patio or go down to beaches and spend 1/2 a day, then come back home to cool back off, jump in the pool, take a nap. Sunset is on other side of island but you still get nice colors coming over the mountains. Kailua has many great restaurants and a Whole Foods.
Great breezes throughout property. Nice to sleep with the windows open. Landscaping on the property is incredible. Flowers everywhere. Wake up and just smell the flowers drifting in.
House is 5 minutes by bike to the trailhead for the Ohana bike trail. Great 5-6 mile pretty intense mountain bike trail (lots of climbing, tight switch backs.) Great road rides in the area too.
Pool was not heated while we were there, so it is refreshing after day in sun or after bike rides. Laundry room in the garage was a big plus to washout beach towels. Tennis court was a big plus to get a few games in instead of heading to beach.
Owner is as nice as can be, and helpful in giving suggestions. We enjoyed sitting on patio with him and having a few glasses of wine one night.
The home was beautiful and overall worked well for our family. The view from the deck was wonderful. Location was great, close to Kailua and beaches. On our arrival Walters personal assistant Christina met us and gave us a tour of the property. However, there were a few issues that needed attention. We would have expected the house be in pristine condition since we paid a $400.00 cleaning fee for our stay. there were areas that were not clean and found mold around some windows. The shower in the downstairs bath did not work; ice maker in refrigerator was broken; and game room television did not work. It took some time to figure out the heater for the spa, since obvious controls did not work. Also, the pool, even thought nice to look at, was too cool for swimming. Most of the issues were taken care of by maintenance man Kazu, but only about 3 days before end of stay. Kazu even went to his own home and got a television to replace the broken one. Even though Walter was away he was very responsive by phone and text to address the issues. Christina and Kazu were wonderful to work with. Our family had a wonderful vacation on Oahu, but felt that the house was overpriced for it's condition. Stay was for the last week of Dec. 2017, into early Jan. 2018.
Beautiful property, Perfect location!
My stay here is something I will never forget!
The location was perfectly located in the vicinity to all of Oahu's most beautiful beaches like Lanikai, Kailua, Bellows, Waimanalo, Sandy's, Hawaii-Kai (Bellows was my fav). I have previously stayed in Waikiki which was just way too buy and overcrowded for me. I got more of the Hawaiian feel staying here in Kailua where it wasn't so touristy. It is conveniently located near the highway so if you like to see the rest of the island you can get there in no time. Kailua town is also very close by. There are amazing views from the property. You can see the Pacific on one side and the mountains on the other. The landscaping is also very beautiful, I loved the plumerias. If you're an avid hiker or like trail biking Mt Olomana known as 3 peaks is right next door! It is one of the best hikes on Oahu and you can walk there from the property. Maunawili Falls is also very close by which is about a 5 min drive.
Inside the home was very beautiful! It had more than enough amenities to make me feel comfortable. It made me feel like I was in my own home. The bed was very comfy and the island breeze was very relaxing. I slept very well after a long day at the beach! The property is very well-maintained and taken care of inside and out. The owner was very gracious and welcoming. He answered any questions I had about the area and asked if i needed anything before I arrived.
I would definitely recommend this place to vacation! It has everything you need and more for the Hawaiian experience! I would love to stay here again! All I need is my suitcase and a plane ticket.
Great House, Great Location
This house was an excellent home base for our 8-person vacation in Oahu. The house is well-kept and clean. It was stocked with all the items that help make for an easy and enjoyable vacation - beach towels and chairs, beach toys, tennis rackets, golf clubs, extra bedding, paper towels and plenty of cookware, glasses, plates and cutlery. The home layout allowed the family to take advantage of the great Hawaiian outdoors. Each of the upstairs bedrooms open up to a balcony. We enjoyed watching the sunrise over Kailua Bay from the main floor balcony in the morning and enjoyed lunch by pool in the covered lanai in the afternoon. The yard was beautiful, full of tropical plants.
The Kailua location was an excellent choice. The house is just minutes away from beaches (Kailua and Waimanalo) and was very close to Whole Foods, Safeway and Target, just in case you need to pick up a few extras.Honolulu is only a 10 minute drive away, but it was nice to stay in a location that was free from the Honolulu traffic.
The owner was very friendly, always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had and tried to ensure that our expectations were met. Overall, we would absolutely recommend this house to anyone interested.
DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!
When I realized the AC was not operational, I expressed my concern and was told "don't worry, its breezy"...Well, with all of the windows open, it was still too warm AND we had the loud traffic noise. The pool was too cold to swim in because the heater is also NOT operational. The worst part is that we were not told that there were renters in the garage so the grounds are NOT private. People were coming and going and at night with the windows open we could here them talking outside. I was so miserable we had to finish our vacation elsewhere and the owner would not give me a partial refund for the time not spent here. Please save your vacation and stay elsewhere! It is NOT worth the money!
I am sorry you did not completely read the description of the property listed on VRBO. There are NO renters living in the garage. Our garages are not designed for renters. The garages are used for personal vehicles and storage. There are two cottages on the property separated by three car garages. Central Air Condition units are disconnected to control cost. If we offer central air condition our nightly rate would be much higher.
On site swimming pool and tennis court shared with two one bedroom cottages located on the property
