Nice house with decent location, but no AC, fair amount of road noise and ant issue.
House is nice, would comfortably sleep 8. Could have been cleaner (particularly utensils in kitchen cabinets). Location is very walkable, which is a plus, but the lot backs up to the major road in town, so there is a fair amount of road noise. No AC, which isn’t an issue at night but would be during the day. Also, the house could use some professional pest control. Left a loaf of plain bread on the counter, within a few hours it was teeming with ants. And the ants were everywhere, not just the kitchen. Had the house been cleaner and the pest issue fixed, review would have been 4 stars.
House is well positioned, close to beach and restaurants.
Set up well for two families. Awesome location, close to the beach.
Family Friendly and Spacious!
This property is in a great location, ample parking, clean and is well maintained. We were a party of 10; 4 adults, 6 kids (ages 5 months - 18 yrs) and the layout allowed for good privacy and ample space for dining and play. Eugen is a fantastic owner and communicates quickly and clearly. We would definitely stay again!
House was in a wonderful location and even more beautiful than the pictures!
My family stayed at this home for a week and absolutely loved the house! It is a spacious and beautiful home. Each of the bedrooms have there own bathroom with showers and covered outside areas and all the beds were very comfortable. It had a wonderful table and chairs outside that we enjoyed sitting at in the mornings as well as the evenings. It was in a great location to the beach and shops. I went to Brenneck’s Beach before sunrise and saw numerous sea turtles and monk seals there each morning. The seals would even show up to sunbathe on the beach several afternoons we were there. Each day we would head to a different part of the island and explore on our way there and back. We had a very small issue with a toilet that the flushing mechanism got stuck and I emailed the owner Eugen and he took care of it very quickly and at our convenience. The home does not have AC but there were box or stand rotating fans in each of the bedrooms. The doors on all sides of the home open up and the breeze is wonderful. During the hottest part of the day we’d bring out one of the rotating fans and set it up if we were all gathered at the table but we didn’t actually need it. We are all used to very hot and humid Texas weather so AC is a must for us but we had no problems whatsoever. We cooked the majority of our meals while we were there and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook. We did buy a couple of large foil throw away pans when we cooked in the oven so I honestly never noticed if there were baking dishes. But I don’t recall anything lacking. And the gas bbq grill worked great! It had a great fridge that we stocked for all of us and had drawer freezers with an ice maker. It had all the comforts of home. The house was very clean and well stocked. The driveway was big enough for the two vehicles we had rented so we could come and go as we pleased when our group split up to do different things. We were all very comfortable at the house. It was absolutely perfect for our group!
Great location; new house; and for large families
If you are traveling with two or more families, this is the property to get. The rooms are large, nice decor, the amenities (i.e. appliances, bed, linens, etc.) are almost new, and the yard is perfect for kids to run around (one of the trees has monarch butterflies growing on them). The owner is very accommodating and responds quickly.
It is centrally located - we've traveled to Pu'u o Kila (51 mins) to Glass Beach (30 mins) to Poipu State Beach (< 5 mins) to Wailua River (25 mins) to Kapa'a (35 mins). The only place we didn't go to is the North Shore (save for next time).
The only thing with this property is that it gets really hot during the afternoons (if you decide to stay in the house to rest). There are no screens on the three large slide doors. So, if you want to freshen up the house after cooking and/or cool off the house, and you open up the slide doors, you'll risk have all sort of bugs come into the house. Also, you'll need to clean up the kitchen and floors after dining because the ants will find the crumbs; and at night, some small interesting critters seem to be able to find their way inside.
We figure this is the offset to living on a property where you'll be able to see lots and lots of stars at night by just walking out from the front door at night; you'll be able to enjoy many monarch butterflies dance with each other, see caterpillars in action, and butterflies hatching; and you'll be able to listen to a very loud frog (or frogs) croaking at night and/or roosters crowing in the morning...all of this and yet still have modern amenities available.
Perfect for our large Family
This home is so uniquely constructed, but yet so perfect. Bedroom in each corner of the home, each with its own bathroom and a plus half bathroom in living room area. The Kitchen and living room are central to the home with high ceilings. There was no need for AC. The home was properly ventilated by just opening up all the windows thru out. Scenic garden to enjoy with patio furniture and BBQ just outside of kitchen. Eugen was so pleasant to work with and beyond accommodating to include two additional air mattresses for our our large group. The location was also quite convenient with most major activities 20 to 30 minute drive away. Close beaches and shopping centers nearby, some walking distance and others just a few minutes away driving.
