"We took our 3 young adult daughters and their husbands with us to Oahu to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, and stayed in this house that had plenty of room for all of us. There were 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and a large great room with lots of comfortable seating. The huge kitchen was outstanding with lots of counter space, high end appliances, ample seating at counter as well as at a full dining table. In addition, we ate many meals on the first floor lanai where we watched the sun set from a table that fit all 8 of us. The kitchen cabinets were stocked with almost every pot, pan and small appliance you can imagine. We shopped at the Safeway down the street (about 6 minutes away) and had no problem preparing meals for 8 and enjoying them comfortably seated.
The view of the ocean from the back of the house was gorgeous. This property is by far the nicest on the street, and there are some run down properties around it, but it felt like an oasis. The few locals that we came in contact with were very nice. There was pretty good surf and we took advantage of the full surfboard, the boogie boards and the kayak that are conveniently available in the garage. We also really appreciated the collection of water shoes (all 8 of us found ones to fit our feet!) left for use and HIGHLY RECOMMEND wearing them as there is some coral in the ocean at the location and it can be a bit rough on your feet.
The description of the property by the owner is very thorough and if you read it carefully you will realize the many amenities that are there to enjoy. Communication with the property manager and Victoria (owner) before and during our stay was seamless.
The only reason we are giving 4 stars and not 5 is because of the lack of air conditioning (with the exception of one unit in the one downstairs bedroom). We were aware that this was the case, and there was great effort to keep things cool with abundant ceiling fans, floor fans, opening doors, etc., but in August, we Californians still found it warmer than we would have liked....the good news is we had the option of going out the back door and cooling off in the ocean!"
