Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying at this property. The location can’t be beat. It’s minutes away from the action and beaches of Waikiki, and even closer to some of the best local cuisine — fresh malasadas at Leonard’s and broke mouth poke at Ono Seafood. The property itself is clean and has a well stocked kitchen. The price can’t be beat. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Vacation of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

First, about the house! It's everything that it was advertised. Centrally located with on and off ramps to highways, within minutes of downtown, and around the corner from a Foodland, which is open 24 hours. The house itself was clean and there was enough room for all 6 of us to move around and relax comfortably. The 2 bathrooms were located outside the bedrooms, this separated each bedroom, which gave each couple more privacy. There is a small narrow steep staircase to walk up to enter the house, it wasn't an issue for us, but I thought I mentioned in case there is someone in your party that has a disability. Each of the rooms had a little a/c which was fine, because we only used them at night. Jennifer was great she provided us a foam ice chest, which believe it or not worked better than mine at home. She also offered the use of beach towels, water shoes, and there was a couple of beach chairs; we didn't use any of that stuff. The only downside to this house is the parking which again it is what it is... The garage isn't available for parking so getting in and out of the small area can be challenging but NOT impossible. It just takes a moment or two to back out. For me, it was a little nerve racking because I didn't want to damage my rental van. There are 3 things that I want to mention; this rental is located on the 2nd level so there is a quiet time of 10 pm, which wasn't an issue for us because we were exhausted after our day out. The 2nd thing is the owner lives right next door so if you need anything or have an issue the owner can get back to you soon, which was comforting. Finally, they do ask you not to wear shoes upstairs, but I explained to Suzanne, an owner, that I didn't feel comfortable being barefoot so she was okay with that. Overall having this house made my vacation even better and dealing with the owners made my life a little better because they surprised me by giving me back my deposit so quickly. Thank you Jennifer and Suzanne - hope to rent your house again next year!

Great location minutes to stores, beaches and free parking!!! It's tight but perfect you are right at your doorstep. Will definitely stay here again. Management was excellent and always accessible.

My family loved loved loved it!

Nice duplex north of Waikiki

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Oahu. Jennifer and Suzanne were very friendly and helpful. Nice queen beds and A/C units in each of the three bedrooms and a nice living room space made it very comfortable. We will definitely consider staying here again on our next visit to Oahu!

We booked three places through VRBO and fortunately the first two turned out well. I don't generally give bad reviews. I find it incomprehensible that one review has said there was plenty of room for seven people to hang out - that is not correct. We didn't stay there as there was no bedding organised for the children, pillows, beds, nothing. No refund given for the cleaning fee even though we didn't stay there. After I reported to VRBO (according to the proper process) the Manager has refused to deal with me. I called the day before to confirm and the woman said she would meet us there at 3 pm (as I told her we didn't have a phone). No one there to meet us, a neighbour loaned us her phone as we were all stranded outside in the heat with our luggage (6 adults and 2 children). We were then given a code to to get into the building and had to drag all our luggage up steep stairs. There was no arranged accommodation for the children in the way of beds or pillows made up for them. We then rang the same person who said she would be there at 4.15 pm as I said we weren't staying - she wanted to stay and talk to us which we did and they offered an air mattress which I don't believe there would have been any room to put it, added to which the stairs were dangerous, particularly for the two year old. We didn't like the area. The living/kitchen area is small and a tiny table with three chairs for eating. After that we had to go looking for alternative accommodation which was extremely stressful. I hope no one else is ever subjected to this same experience.

Owner's Response: I find it a waste of time responding to this frivolous review due to the fact that the comments made by the traveler are totally untrue. The record speaks for itself, 33 reviews from previous VRBO guests, of which 15 reviews are 5 star and 14 are 4 star rating.

Everything clean & convenient

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 traveled to Hawaii and stayed here for 2 nights. Other than food, everything else is provided. The unit was clean, the internet work well, Suzanne helped out with the towels. Very comfortable stay.
