The house was great! Host was really helpful!
The house is on a perfect location in safe neighborhood. Pool area is great! We really enjoyed our stay
Top house @ top location!
We stayed in this beautiful house, family of four with two teenagers, for 9 days. The house is large and very convenient, especially the outdoor area and the pool were wonderful. The house has lots of amenities, just as described and shown on the Homeaway site. Except a toaster and a water kettle, but we bought that at the Walmart, no problem! Our boys loved the table tennis in the garage!
The location of the house is more than perfect! In a beautiful residential area. Just around the corner there is a sand white beach. Waikiki is a 5 minute drive. We even walked one morning to Waikiki. The Diamond Head crater is nearby and worth visiting. We loved Oahu, Hawaii! It is a pity that it is on the other side of the world for us (we live in Europe, Holland) or else we came back soon to this gorgeous house!
Our extended family loved our Oahu vacation. The house was great. We spent lots of time in and by the wonderful pool and hot tub. The kitchen had everything we needed. The living and dining areas were spacious. The beds were comfortable. And the bathrooms were clean. The owner promptly answered all our questions in the few weeks before our vacation. The owner's mother kindly met us at the house when we arrived and showed us around. The owner left a clear set of instructions and local tips. And the location is perfect. You can quickly and easily get to Waikiki and downtown. Kahala Mall is also very close. And if you want to hike up Diamond Head, it's right there.
Very nice house in a nice area and location
We have traveled to Hawaii many times and have now stayed in 5 rental houses on the North Shore, Lanikai, and Kailua (before renting houses we used to stay at Turtle Bay). This house was one of our favorites. Importantly, the house and amenities were exactly as described and shown in the pictures. There were no surprises. It is a high quality home in a very nice residential area. Nice touches throughout that reflect the local culture. There is plenty of space inside so that all of our guests could spread out for alone time to decompress. It was also nice that the home is big enough that when the kids went to bed the adults could stay up and visit without worrying about waking up anyone who was sleeping. We had 4 adults and 5 kids in our party and there was plenty of room. All of the bedrooms have air conditioners for sleeping, and during the day there is central air conditioning in the kitchen and living spaces--this made it very nice. The master walk-in closet also had air conditioning separate from the master bedroom air conditioner, which made it perfect for our baby to sleep in because it was cool and quiet (we brought our own portable crib). The pool and outdoor area were also wonderful--the kids (and adults) spent hours every day in the pool. We also spent time all over the island and found the location to be great. We would return to this house.
A Splendid Home
Amazing home in a great location. There were four of us couples who stayed here for our annual vacation. The house is configured such that we enjoyed our privacy within our own bedrooms and bathrooms but comfortably gathered in the spacious kitchen, family room, dining area or living area. The wi-fi was reliable (a must for plotting our daily adventures) and the Sonos sound system was a plus in creating a happy and relaxed mood in and out of the house.
The place was well-stocked. For anything else we needed, our favorite stores were conveniently close. Also close are many of Oahu’s popular attractions and wonderful restaurants. We enjoyed being away, but not too far, from the hustle & bustle of Waikiki.
Our only regret: we wish we could have spent more time at the house to enjoy the pool, hot tub and nearby beach. I would definitely look this up for a future visit.
This is a beautiful home located in a desirable location. It is Convenient to Waikiki and downtown Honolulu but away from the bulk of the tourist activity if u chose to avoid the crowds. In addition it is less then ten minutes to H1 so u can relatively quickly get to the very scenic southern end of the island.
The house is large and comfortably sleeps a party of six. Further it is spacious enough that each of our party had privacy. Its main floor is open and a nice place for a party. During our stay,, we hosted a post wedding rehearsal dinner party for eighteen. There was adequate indoor and outdoor space to accommodate every one. In addition, My son, who is a professional chef, had everything he needed in the kitchen (minus a chopping block and a small outdoor grill) to support food preparation for a party of this scale.
In summary, it was worth the investment and would recommend it to other visitors if u need to be in the Honolulu area.
