  • The Wedding Plantation House

    "Our Daughter and her husband pick the Plantation House for their wedding site and it was spectacular. True Hiawii old school style and perfect for the occasion. Three house's plenty of room for everyone, the Lani was so nice to sit and take it all in. The pool was just the right size and very clean. We had the wedding ceremony down front and then moved it to the main out door area between the houses. The pool house Lani had plenty of room for music and dancing. The mountains in the background are very majestic. Pictures do it justice for an event to remember. But experience it for yourself!!! It was truly a blessing to have had are daughters wedding at this wonderful setting."

  • Cute property, perfect location and with all amenities of "home"

    "I personally didn't get to see or talk to the owners much while we were there, but the house was perfect for what we needed! We were there getting married on Kalama Beach, which was just a short walk from the house. The town of Kailua had grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies, etc and even a Target store, all within a 2 minute drive of the house. The house reminded me of a cottage, but it was perfect for our family of 4. There was even enough space for someone to come and do my hair and makeup the morning of the wedding. The kitchen was stocked with general necessities, and the bbq outside was a nice feature. We were able to go to FoodLand to purchase the makings to prepare a portion of our meals at the house, instead of having to eat out for every meal for the week. There were shampoos, conditioners, body wash and other toiletries available for use, as well as plenty of towels, wash cloths, and linens. There was even a hairdryer, an iron and ironing board available to use, which was helpful! If we ever make it back to Oahu again, I will definitely try to stay at this location again. My only complaint was that when we arrived there, some glass had been broken in the kitchen, and only partially cleaned up. We kept finding little shards of glass with our feet (due to the no shoes in the house rule) and it wasn't until a couple of days after we arrived that we found the broom and dust pan to finish cleaning up the glass ourselves. All in all, the trip was amazing, the house is perfect, and has the most ideal location on the island, in my opinion. Thank you again, Sue and Ron, for allowing us to stay in your home, and for allowing us to mail packages to your home prior to our arrival and for holding them for us until we arrived. I highly recommend this house to anyone coming to the island, especially if you are traveling with children."

  • Wonderful Kailua Rental

    "This was the perfect place for our families. My son was married on the Secret Island near Kualoa Ranch and this worked out very well for my 2 brothers, their wives, my sister, our friends who married my son & his wife and my husband & I. We had stayed in Kailua 2 years ago so we were familiar with the area and decided to return. We rented all 3 units and it was very comfortable for everyone. We especially appreciated the AC in the bedrooms! We enjoyed the pool & hot tub and just sitting on the lanai and enjoying the beautiful weather. Each unit had its own charm and was well equipped. The microwave in our unit did not work and was replaced immediately by the owner. Steve, Susie & Zak were so pleasant to work with and very informative. We took their advice and made the 15 minute walk to Lanikai Beach. So beautiful!! We had dinner at Buzz's Bar & Steakhouse and were not disappointed; the meal and service was excellent. Lots of shops and markets close by and Kailua Beach just across the street and through the park. We will certainly consider the Villas when we return to Hawaii. Thank you!"

  • Ideal for Families with Young Kids

    "Our family of three (mom, dad, 2-year old toddler) stayed for a week in June 2016. We had a few days of obligations near Honolulu and the rest of the time did not need to be anywhere in particular. Several days we barely left the house - at morning low tide the lagoon is almost dry. Our daughter used it as a giant sandbox (toys provided by the landlord) and tried and tried again to catch the fish and crabs that congregated in the small pool at the foot of the breakwater. At hightide the waves would crash over the breakwater and make the lagoon into a safe and enjoyable wave pool that is safe for even very young kids. We never used the kayaks or snorkeling gear but the reef beyond the breakwater looked beautiful and we saw many neighbors fishing and paddleboarding out there. Being able to watch the moods of the ocean throughout the day was mesmerizing. Being able to go straight down to the beach without having to load a car or pack a bag, and being able to clean off in the outdoor shower before coming back in, took away so much stress and unpleasantness. While the location may seem a bit remote by Oahu standards, nothing is more than an hour away, and we found the quiet isolation a welcome respite from the busier side of the island. As some of the other reviews suggest, the house itself is not in pristine shape, but the location and value proposition cannot be beat. Would you rather be in a beautiful Waikiki hotel room several blocks from the beach or in a perfectly nice house that is literally on top of the beach? Easy answer for our family. We hope to come back someday and enjoy more of the water activities with older kids."
