Pool and cooking on the deck was our favorite

  • 5 of 5

After long days out it was a treat to hang out in the backyard and cook out for dinner. The kids liked playing in the pool while we cooked dinners. The trees and shrubs in the backyard gave us plenty of privacy. The house was nice and roomy for all of us. The kids liked the separate sleeping area and gave them time to stay up late when we were tired from the day. We will reserve again next time we return to Hawaii.

Great Property, Amazing Backyard

  • 5 of 5

Kids had a blast in the pool. The town of Kailua is right around the corner and has everything we could think of. Kailua Beach is fantastic and just a short walk away. Can't wait to come back.

Very good!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. It wasn't too far from the beach or the many other grocery stores. The main roadways were always easily accessible. The roomy residence made it possible for all of us to be together and keep our privacy. We really enjoyed our Stay!

Whoa Nelly

  • 5 of 5

The back deck, lanai and pool are just amazing. We had quite the time. It was tough to leave to go the beach because the pool (with slide) was just soooooo nice. We'll stay here again next time in town. Mark, the manager was a real professional, too.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6, all adults, stayed at the property for 8 days. We all liked the convenience. It was close to Kailua Beach, which was beautiful, clean, not crowded, and close by. We went four times and enjoyed the gentle waves and shaded spots along the sandy beach. The drive was only 5 minutes! We didn't go to the closest beach because the waves were stronger, and none of us were surfers. The house was also close to Kuilua town center where we did grocery shopping at Safeway, Wholefoods and Target. We also found a nice restaurant to host a family dinner for our extended family members who were in the area to attend a family wedding. There were lots of tasty small restaurants that serve all kinds of cuisine.

The property itself was clean. Even though the interior was a little outdated, it was comfortable with a big kitchen where we fixed many of our breakfast and lunch. The five bedrooms and three bathrooms were good for ten people. Since there were only 6 of us, it was spacious and comfortable. We also enjoyed the pool which was clean, and the water slide was a surprise and lots of fun!

The owner, Mark, was responsive. We needed a hair dryer, so we bought one at Target, and Mark reimbursed us the next day. The dish rack by the sink was a little rusty. Mark delivered a brand new one the next day. We also found the information on beaches, trails and restaurants in the house binder useful to help us make decisions on where to explore. All in all, it was a pleasant stay, and we had a wonderful time!

Kailua House

  • 2 of 5

My extended family of 6 adults and three young children (ages 8, 6, & 4) stayed at this property for 8 nights. The distance from the beach is a bit far for children to walk, so we drove the 3-4 min to beach entrance. The house and furnishings are quite dated. The house does not have very good air flow so fans are essential. The central living area of the home was quite warm even with fans running.

However, the reasons for the two star rating have more to do with the lack cleanliness that we found when we arrived, the kitchen supplies, and the malfunctioning of various things. When we got pans out to cook, we noticed that one pan looked like it had not been cleaned of all the grease left by the previous use. Other pans were rusted and/or badly warped. We went out to purchase pan and a knife (knives were very dull) to prepare a fish dinner one night. A couple of fans were not functioning, and a burner on the front of stove worked sporadically.

I was in text communication with Mark, the manager, and Karen regarding some of the issues that came up. Mark did get someone to come and fix the newly installed refrigerator that was making a very loud noise every hour or so, loud enough to wake those of us with bedrooms on kitchen side of house. Apparently it had something to do with ice maker not being installed. Karen offered to have someone come over to wash all of the cupboard items. I declined and said I would just wash myself prior to my use.

I was told the man who rents the unit which is on the side of the house maintains the pool. I believe he did tend to the pool, as we would see a hose being placed in the pool adding water. An adult and a child both happened to get ear infections during our stay. There is, of course, no definitive proof that the ear infections were caused by the pool. However, four of the six adults are medically trained people who thought the incidence was highly suspect.

We have family in Hawaii and come about every year. I have never written a negative review before. Some things are out of control of the manager/ owners and I understand that. I do not expect an older home to necesssarily be looking like it was built last year. However, for the rental price of this home, I do expect a higher standard of cleanliness, comfort, and functionality.

Owner's Response: Cleanliness is of utmost importance to us. We told the guest they could come by and drop off baggage early. We had a same day turn around and thus couldn't get it done sooner. Long story short dropping off bags turned into checking in. It might seem like a simple thing but when kids are running threw the house and luggage starts getting unpacked it slows the cleaners down and distracts them. Things get missed and their normal routine is out the window. Like she said we offered to come back and redo the kitchen but they declined and didn't want the cleaners back at the house. Fridge is brand new and noise went away when the water/ice maker was connected. Stove burner were fixed while they were there. Pool pump was burning out. Still worked and were waiting for a new one. Water quality was still clean/safe but it did get a little green.. Not sure how the beach is a 3 to 4 min drive. You can get to Lanikai Beach in 5 mins. Hope this clears up any questions you have if you are reading this far :) Aloha, Mark
