  • Great Christmas Vacation

    "The house was so amazing. Had pretty much everything we needed, age range of travelers from 28-78. All rooms were excellent, master bedroom/bathroom with lanai was incredible. 3 full shower/bathrooms in the house (+1 outdoor shower) so never any issue finding a bathroom or a shower. The 3 kayaks were great, definitely recommend making a trip out to the blue hole for some snorkeling...we saw 4 or 5 turtles there and just as many fish as you can see at Hanauma Bay without the crowds or the lines. The pool was great as is the kitchen and patio area. We ate a majority of our meals at the house but it is a relatively short drive into Waikiki for some more action, or to the excellent restaurants at the Kahala. Grocery stores just a few minutes away. Beach out in front of the house is not fabulous, water is very shallow with lots of rock and coral until you reach the surf (which is a long way out there). But we spent all of time up at the pool when we weren't in the kayaks or snorkeling, so it was no problem for us."

  • Vacation Away from NYC

    "Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was somewhat unhappy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The place was beautiful. The flow was really nice and the space was very free and open. For a rental, it was pretty good. We felt happy and relaxed while we were there. However, the dish washer was not working. It turned on and you can hear water going through the dishes but it did not wash ANYTHING at all. We had to wash everything by hand. By second day, we bought paper plates and cups. The place also looks rather dated (but not a big factor, unless you're very particular). However, if I was the owner, I would probably update some stuff. We had one incident -- which was very unnerving. By seventh day into the stay, someone broke into the house while we were home. It was around 10:30pm, my kids were asleep (in the master bedroom with me). I was awake and sitting up in bed with the lights on. Most of the indoor lights were still on. My husband was at the gym (not home). Someone had gone through the sliding door (which was closed but not locked yet. We were still awake after all) from the beach and into the property and came into the master bedroom (WHILE I WAS THERE! AWAKE!). He was a very brazen thief! He ran away when I saw him and the cops didn't find him. All this to say: we were pretty shaken and angered that the motion lights outside (all over the house; front and back) were not working. I would have definitely noticed if the lights outside went on when he was there or it would have hindered him from coming in if the lights turned on. Apparently, he had come from another house. He had stolen an SLR camera from another rental nearby (and he left it on the backyard). All this to say: be forewarned. It's a nice place but petty theft is rampant in the area. Lock the doors EVEN when you're home and make sure all the lights work. And for the property management: might be best to put cameras in the area (pointing out -- not inside) so you can see if someone does break in again. I would."

  • Exceptional House

    "This house was simply the best house I have ever rented. We were met by the property manager upon arrival, and Sherry greeted us with a personal phone call as well. She was always quick to respond to any questions we had. The house was clean and well decorated. It was stock with plenty of food, fruits, snacks, and drinks, more than we could finish. The ocean view from the patio was exceptional. We spent plenty of time just relaxing there. We were also happy with all the beach supplies that the house prepared for us - towels, chair, gears, coolers, etc. It was more that we had ever expected. The location was ideal for our first time on the island. We were less than 30 minutes drive from Waikiki and the airport. It's also very close to Hanauma Bay for snorkeling. I don't think I could have chosen a better house than this one."

  • " This is Hawaii ! " as we expected.

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Just in entering the house,all young families shouted with joy "Hawaii,cheer!" looking out to the ocean in front.The location is truly great. To the east KOKO head,to the west a lovely local beachpark and in the front ,wide blue sea and far offshore sea deepblue with white wave tops. Beutiful!,never boring senenry ,indeed. Though covered by coral reef inshore,somewhere in reef caves we could find many fishes as in Hanauma Bay. In the evening we had great barbecue parties on the wide terrace cooking the local foods got at near-by Wholefood or COSTCO and beefs,vegetables fruits are good and reasonable as same in Tokyo. The house stands along with the highway and we had some fear of noise but the central cooling system does work and we could almost shutout it. A terrace lamp and kitchen disposal got wrong once but maintenance people came and fixed them very soon. So,we had no trouble at all. If somethings to add for more comfortabe , more lighting over the entire terrace,shelter cover for tables and chairs against sudden rain shower and safety measures for hammmock riders not to fall on the stone walls aside. Anyway,we all family,had a very,very good time during the week long stay. Thank you very much ,Hawaii Beach Homes ! Aloha from Kawamoto's, Tokyo Japan top far"
