The penthouse was kept up beautifully, the pictures from the balconies do not do it justice.

  • 4 of 5

The view from the balconies are spectacular, mountains on one side, ocean on the other. Better views than turtle bay. The beach is nearly private and over a 1/4 mile long. Snorkeling was better than advertised. Spotted rays, multiple turtles, octopus, various reef fish. The beach was soft sand, surprising since coral heads and reef rock are so close. The owner was very kind and easy to work with. The outside complex needs work, but you forget all about it once you get inside and on the beach. Loved our stay, wish we had another week or more.

Too many old and broken things

  • 2 of 5

Upon arrival to the parking lot, there was a strong sewer smell. Even the strong wind from the windward side of the island could not blow the stench away fast enough. It got worse when the wind stopped. The smell was there the 5 days we stayed there.

Water pressure was really low for both showers. The shower head had 10 settings, but none are any good.

Window vents are really hard to turn. Some don't even turn anymore.

Locks on all the sliding doors are broken. There are sticks to prevent door from being open, but sticks can easily be moved. Definitely not safe for kids, especially when you are on the 8th floor.

On the second night, it rained, so the room was very muggy, and a bunch of bugs (looks like large termites) came from under the master bed.

The floor in the living room was very sticky. My children's feet were extremely dirty. I dragged a piece of paper towel under my feet to confirm how dirty it was. For the rest of the time, we all wore sandals.

The rug looks like it got stains on it as well. Again, we wore sandals to avoid touching it.

The sofa was also very sticky. Should have sofa that has material that more plastic-like, so that dirt and stain can be wiped off instead being absorbed.

A couple of ceiling fans have multiple speed settings but we cannot change it; they were always on low speed.

Only provided half a roll of paper towel, and no tissue box.

The pots, pans, utensils were dirty, especially the circulon pots that had grease on it. The dishes were only as clean as whoever who last washed them. Some nonstick pots and pans were peeling on the inside and could easily break into the food.

We rewashed all the towels, because when we arrived they smelled really bad.

Also there just way too many rules (30+). A simple "Please be courteous, treat this place like your own place" will do and then may be just 5 other rules. There's even a rule to wash all the bedsheets before checking out. If we had to do the dishes, take out the trash, and wash the bedsheets, why are we paying for cleaning service?

I have rented many condos in Hawaii (at least 6). For this price, this is definitely not worth it.

Suggest to have some 15 minutes parking spots. Upon arrival, we unknowingly took someone's parking spot. Then someone else took our parking spot.

Of course, there are some positive things about this place, but the negative stuffs just overwhelmed us. Big plus for the security guy. He helped us out with the parking immediately.

Breath taking view Condo

  • 4 of 5

Very beautiful views, and comfortable condo with beach in front. This condo has all that you need to make your stay complete. No air conditioner but with the cross winds flowing in your stay is mor authentic. It was 6 adults and we all had our own rooms and very roomy. Very much worth every penny. PS location is in the best area of the island not far from anything to do.

Beautiful Quiet Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 days at Linda's condo. The two-story condo is on the top floor of the complex, so nobody is above you and the views are incredible. On the beachside, there are two lanais from which we watched the sunrise every morning while sipping coffee. And on the other side of the building are the lush and verdant mountains, where we enjoyed an amazing hike one afternoon. The beach below is immaculate and quiet - like having your own private beach and there are plenty of chairs to lounge upon and relax to the sounds of the ocean. Thanks to the reef, there is great and safe snorkeling and swimming. We used the snorkeling gear provided at Linda's place and had everything we needed during our stay (and went to the grocery store for food). The location is on a quiet stretch of highway, but only a few miles from a grocery store and various restaurants. We loved how quiet the location was and yet a 30 minute drive to Kailua and The North Shore. The perfect place if you have a family and want to be away from the crowded areas or resorts/hotels of Oahu. Punaluu Beach is a real, local gem. So beautiful and peaceful! We look forward to coming back. Thank you Linda!

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

This property has great potential, but during our stay it fell very short. The unit is in need of a very through cleaning. Upon arrival, we found dirty silverware and bowls, in the cabinets so I washed them all as precaution. The rugs throughout were noticeably dirty, and when my husband pulled out the vacuum so we could vacuum he noticed the brush was not rotating on the vacuum. If this vacuum is being used to clean, makes since why the rugs were so dirty. I mopped the floors that could be mopped and we did not walk around with our shoes off due to the rugs being dirty. The iron did not work; sparks flew from the plug when plugged in. The portable fan in the living room only worked on one low speed. We need a fan, as a few days were warm with no trade winds breeze. The ceiling fans brought little relief. We did not use a lot of the beach items, we figured based on the rest of the unit, it probably had not been cleaned. The TV in the living room was broken, Linda, the owner contacted us before we arrived to inform us of the broken TV. We were there for 8 nights and the TV wasn’t repaired or replaced. I even contacted Linda when the TV increasingly got worse and no solution provided. One other note, the gym that is advertised has very old equipment and doesn’t work properly. The treadmill sped up on it’s on. Dangerous! Hopefully this will not go on death ears and the next renters can concentrate on the beautiful beaches right outside your door not the uncleanliness and all the nonworking things in this unit. I am not a clean freak, but I don't think it's too much for a place that you are renting to be clean. We made the best of our vacation and had a great time on the lovely island of Oahu
