Not what I expected

  • 3 of 5

I've been traveling to Kailua for 20 years. I have stayed in many rentals, this was the first time I have been disappointed.

Three stars for location and cleanliness. Great location within easy walking distance of the beach, and very clean.

The accommodation is one room, which is OK, but very plain and unadorned. The way it is described, I expected more than a converted garage, with a tile floor, refrigerator, TV, and a low foam bed. That's pretty much it. It is very basic, and not like the homey places I have stayed at in Kailua before.

Owner's Response: I am really sad to read that people write such a review simply because the weather was bad and it was raining non-stop during their stay. The cottage has at no point been a Garage and is a separate property with a carport for parking. All previous guests loved the Hawaiian decor and modern furniture.

Kay was wonderful. Great location, private, clean, nice to have laundry machines

  • 5 of 5

Very close to Kalama Park. Peaceful and perfect vacation setting. Everything needed for household was provided. Scent free might be preferred by renters.

We look forward to returning, and meeting Simi next time! Thanks for everything -

Clean and comfortable, very close to beautiful Kailua Beach

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is just as shown in the photos -- immaculately well kept, with a cozy patio, and a very short walk (couple of minutes) to Kalama Beach Park at the wonderful Kailua Beach. Swimming at the beach as the sun set and then walking back to the cottage for dinner on the patio was one of the biggest highlights of our trip. The owner/managers of the cottage were great about communicating during the rental process and arranging the logistics for checking into the cottage. All in all, couldn't ask for a better experience!

Beautiful and spacious contemporary suite

  • 5 of 5

The property is a ground floor suite on a low-traffic street. The furniture was extremely comfortable, i.e. a large bed for my wife and I, and an air bed for our son (with the option of a sofa cum bed). The air bed worked out perfect. Whole foods was just a short drive and so we stocked up in the humongous fridge. It was fun cooking on the range. There was plenty of space for putting our clothes. The TV was also large and we could nicely watch the new year festivities.

However, my main concern was that on new year's even there were fire crackers continuously burst by neighbors till 2:30 or 3am. That was quite annoying, especially since that really meant we got no sleep that night. Of course, that is not something that can be done, but I would avoid the place on new year's eve if you are a light sleeper (all the other nights were just perfect).

Simi had her som Kay meet us and he was extremely gracious He did a wonderful job checking us in. He was always there by phone to address any questions or concerns. He had many recommendations and it was overall a fantastic experience. There are wonderful restaurants nearby and I would recommend the Thai place, the Japanese Uahu place and the brunch place called Cinnamon. All were a short distance. But to park you need to use the meter, so keep coins handle or get dollar bills to exchange at the restaurants.

The house was extremely well stocked with basic food items, excellent dishes, coffee maker, basic amenities like salt and sugar, etc. I loved the fact that they had a place to hand wet clothes like swimwear. Also they had a washer-drier that we used. The place itself is a comfortable ride from Honolulu, Waikiki and Hanauma ... all within half hour. The Polynesian cultural center was more like 50 minutes drive, but comfortable.

Overall we enjoyed the place and would love to come back any day!

It's the little things...

  • 3 of 5

The Cottage is portrayed just as the picture shows. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. I really liked that. The son was a nice person and very respectful. However, there were some issues. First, there was dust on the attic fan, and when we turned it on there was dust flying everywhere. Second, there was an ant issue in the bathroom and the kitchen. I wished we were informed of this upon arriving and given a possible solution (baby powder). Lastly and most frustrating was that the hot water was not even hooked up to the washing machine. The owners HAD to have known that. `This was one of the main reasons we choose the unit. We wanted to bring home clean clothes.. not have to re-wash clothes once we got here. Based on the above issues, it was an okay value for the money.
