La villa est très bien située et on peut facilement visiter toute l'île sans repassé par Honolulu. Même si la plage n'est pas propice à la baignade on a pu profiter des longes marches sur le sable. Les chambres furent adéquates pour notre groupe de sept personnes. L'extérieur est bien équipé de chaises, tables et BBQs pour profiter des beaux couchers de soleil tout en dinant. François
While the house is clearly under repair, it had everything we needed to be comfortable and ensure a happy gathering. We had a toddler with us so the yard Was completely safe for him to run and play. The beach was right off the yard and almost completely private. The water was a little rough the first and last day so we were able to play in the surf most of the time. I would recommend the property as the price was reasonable, left money to see all the sights. Most things to see were within 30-40 min away. Groceries and gas very close by. Aloha and Mahalo.
i'll make this short, beach is not for swimming, bedroom with twin beds and laundry had large roaches. Caretaker was awesome and very nice to work with. For and older home it's okay, but the roaches needs to be addressed by owner.
Good: Lovely backyard and private-feeling beach largely made up for the negatives. 2nd floor master suite is apparently fairly new construction and very nice. Appreciated having a washing machine and dryer. Lots of beach towels and toys are provided. Not-So-Good: Very gritty neighborhood. House fronts to highway but front yard is walled and has locked gate. Cockroaches - I expect to see bugs in a tropical climate, and they didn't really bother me that much but kids hated them. Because this was mentioned in another review, it seems that this should be taken care of. Customer service would be improved with better supplies at house: more trash bags, toilet paper, hand soap at sinks, and shampoo/conditioner in bathrooms. 2nd floor master suite bathroom - took cold showers for 3 days before mentioning to custodian. To his credit he sent a plumber right away and it was found that shower faucet was installed incorrectly so that "hot" is barely on and "cold" is fully on. One of the "bedrooms" is a room off the living room/kitchen that has a sleeper couch and does NOT have a door. Adults wanting privacy would not care for this. Also, the sheets on this sleeper couch had not been changed and were repulsive. Furnishings are older and look more dated than charming but some of the artwork is good.
The beach is nice and private. The yard is very good for kids to have fun. The second floor of the house is newly renovated, very nice. If the first floor can be renovated as well, that will be a perfect location for one week vacation. General speaking, the price is reasonable, but the location is so-so. The hwy 93 is very busy every day.
The house was very comfortable for out group of 8. Nice to have so many bathrooms; plenty of towels but could use more washcloths; kitchen was nice size but could use more silverware. Fenced yard was nice too; large gated drive way secure and plenty of room as we had 2 cars. We enjoyed meals on the lanai and there were no mosquitoes/bees etc. There were about 4 cockroaches during the week we were there but it is the tropics. The beach was great while we were there but can change & become more rocky depending on the tide. We had fun playing in the ocean and boogie boarding; it is too rough for snorkeling though. The house typically cooled down at night due to a nice breeze and ceiling fans; having screens on a couple more doors would help it to cool down even more; we were able to sleep comfortably though. It was nice to wake up to sunshine and singing birds. The owners were friendly when they showed up at check out time but we mistakenly thought we had 1 more hour; had a nice visit with them. Would love to come back some day!
We could not be more pleased with our stay at the property. The home is very spacious everybody had their own private room plus the common areas were large and accommodating. The outdoor space seem to be where everybody wanted to gather, but then why wouldn't you with the sound of the waves and the ocean right there! The kitchen is very well-equipped as we cooked most of our meals there. There was a nice gas grill outside that we used a lot. The home has a large hot water tank it we never seem to run out of hot water even with that many people. Plenty of towels and linens were provided. The outside storage closet was filled with boogie boards and toys and things for the play in the ocean and for the kids. I made an inquiry before arriving about a shower chair and a hand-held shower head for my son who is a paraplegic and Reggie the owner provided these things. I thank him very much for that because we were prepared to buy or rent them but he took care of it. Reading the past review I was a little concerned about the beach but it was wonderful. During extremely high tide there are rocks that become exposed but most of the time we were there it was just a beautiful sandy beach. The beach is very private, I'd say we didn't see five people go by the whole time we were there. My husband and I stayed in the upstairs bedroom which is a beautiful suite with an amazing view of the ocean right from the bed. At first we were concerned that there was no air conditioning up there but when you open all the windows at night you will be finding a cover to put over you. Between the sound of the waves and the cool ocean breeze it was heavenly for sleeping. All in all renting this place was a wonderful experience and our family is already talking about wanting to go back! Thank you Reggie and Home Away for a wonderful week! The Lancasters
This home was large enough to accommodate our group of 10 people for the week we were in Oahu. However, the description of the "5 bedrooms" was misleading. One room had just a sofa sleeper, NO DOOR, and no closet. This was disappointing, since we split the cost and one party was stuck with these poor accommodations. Also, the dishwasher would not drain, and after 4 phones and leaving messages, we finally got an email stating it would be fixed--but of course that was the last day of our stay. The best part of this property was the patio, fenced yard, access to the beach, and the beautiful views.
We celebrated my 50th birthday there with three other couples. The view is incredible! Especially from the large master suite on the second floor. All four couples had their own bathrooms and privacy. We spent every morning having breakfast out back, and every evening watching the sunset out back. You literally walk out of the house, across the back lawn, and you're on the beach. Its a short drive to Aulani Disney Resort & Spa where we snorkeled, dined, and shopped. We had no issues and no bad surprises -- the home is exactly as it looks in the pictures.
This house has a nice beach location and lanai gathering space. That is about it for positives. House is inadequate as far as furnishing items like bathroom tissue and Kleenex, waste bags etc. Expect to encounter roaches as had 3, two dead and one live. Crumbs were found under furniture and baseboards were filthy indicating poor cleaning, even though renters are charged a cleaning fee. Traffic is horrible getting there during the week. Expect 3-4 emergency vehicles to pass by and wake you at night. If you have more than 6 adults, you will end up drawing straws for the 2 remaining bedrooms. Not all beds have mattress pads. I would not recommend this location as it is the least attractive spot on the island once you get off the beach,
Overall nice property. Some updates would make it even better, especially bedding.
My family and myself enjoyed our stay. The house has everything you need to stay for a few days. Comfortable living. Way better than a hotel in my opinion. Private location so didn't have to worry about anything. Close to Kapolei so was able to go out and shop. One of the best vacations rentals.
This vacation was Christmas and NewYears for our family of 10. The size of the house accommodated my husband and myself our two daughters and their families. Grandkids ages range from 6 to 17. The house is on the beach with nice sand and great sunsets and the crashing sounds of the wave were lovely. However the beach itself is not a swimming beach as there are layers of slippery rocks and a very steep drop off. Walking either directions on the beach could get you to more swimming friendly beaches but we chose to drive south to find beaches with breakwaters. Size of the house worked for us, although one of the bedrooms is more like a hall that has no door. Worked out fine for the grandsons. The original part of the house is a brick and well lived in. All downstairs bathrooms are in need of updates. DS Bedrooms were an ok size for our needs with window AC but like the bathrooms, in need of updates and repairs. The upstairs master bedroom is a fairly current addition, nicely done, with lots of room and a large bath an closet. No blinds on the west facing slider to deck so a lot of sun in the after noon. Could get toasty in the summer months as there is no AC in that room but we were there in December so it was fine. I did feel the need to wash all the dishes, utensils and pans prior to using. Again every thing was well used and worn. Dishwasher stove and oven worked. Washing machine and dryer to, but in need of some TLC. Water heater was rusty on the outside and had a slight leak, but worked fine. I hope it gets replaced soon. Towels and linens were adequate but worn as well. Had three cockroach sightings in the house, which doesn't alarm me. It is a a tropical island and somewhat expected. We killed them and it was fine. The neighborhood was very local and eclectic with a busy Farrington hwy right behind the house. Noise could be an issue at times. There was a vacant house next door that had been broken into and was partially boarded up and kind of creepy. Other houses on the beach were nice. We did find some great local spots to eat and Tamura's super market down the road with a great Poke deli bar. We spent a lot of time exploring the island from top to bottom so this house as a base worked out. There is a caretaker on the property who as very friendly and helpful, a real plus to our stay. Would I stay there again? Probably not, but we did have a great time there with the family regardless of the deferred maintenance of the house. Cathy
Overall, the house was nice. It was lovely to be on the ocean. Some nice touches. Wainae is far from everything. Expect to drive 40-60 minutes to get to any sites each way. Adjacent houses are empty. Some minor problems (main TV had problems getting DirecTV reception, grill didn't cook very well, pull out mattress had an odor ...).
This was the perfect "Staycation" home for our family. The beach was great right out the back door. Huge backyard with covered lanai was the favorite hangout spot. Ample parking for our large family in the gated driveway. This owner takes pride in their home and has thought of everything to make your stay carefree. Every room (each with a private bathroom) was large, decorated beautifully, high-end bedding and AC. I guess the best testimony was that we brought a Jet Ski and planned on going golfing, but no one ever wanted to leave the house. Not that we ever needed the caretaker but he was just as awesome of the house! We will be sure to book this home again in the future.
It was a great home, well arranged, clean and beautiful. We have enjoyed a lot. We appreciate very much. It is very minor matter that one room near the road is a little noisy during the night time, because the window is old fashion style. Thank you so much indeed.
GREAT location!!! Private and quiet very relaxing!!
