Home felt safe and comfy. Carol was welcoming !!
Great place for a family or medium size group
Awesome layout it traveling with kids. It was nice to have two living areas and the patio with BBQ. The location was awesome, quick drive the beach, stores, and restaurants. Really preferred staying here over Honolulu hotels. They had everything we needed for our many excursions - beach towels, sand toys, snorkel gear, ect. The kitchen was well equipped. Carol was very helpful and accommodating!
Kailua is a fabulous VRBO site
Location, location! :) Close to beach, restaurants, Safeway; but far away from crowds. Perfect in that regard.
Full size kitchen and comfortable living areas, bedrooms fine.
Lots of beach items to borrow.
Thanks, Carol, for hosting us. We wish you well with your place. Mike and Peggy
Nice house in a nice block
Nice large house with plenty of space for 4 adults and 2 kids. Nice location to visit Oahu. The beach is about 12min walk. The house is very Comfortable. Would recommend for a nice and simple stay.
Great and quiet neighborhood!
So a bit of mixed feelings about writing this review. While there’s nothing detrimentally negative, there are areas of improvement that could/should be addressed.
With that said, let’s talk about what makes this property great first. Location, this is an excellent location, it’s located about 1/2 hour north of Waikiki and away from the city and it’s traffic. While still away from the city, there are plenty of stores and restaurants within a 5-10 drive and the nearest beach is about the same amount. The property has another tenant in the back aside from the host, but the privacy is excellent and you’ll never see them unless you seek them out. Our host, Carol was very sweet and attentive. She provided us with a quick rundown of the location and made herself available if there were any concerns.
So now the feedback. Although the location is awesome, the property is in need of some TLC (tender loving care). The decor is adequate for the island feel, but the pillows could be replaced. Most of them were flat to lay on and seemed soiled past the point of use (normal wear and tear). Although we’re not there to stay indoors, the internet was slow to the point of being obsolete (not a deal breaker by any means, but internet certainly helps when you have little ones to entertain with Netflix and other apps). There are maintenance items that should be addressed making this home an even better experience for everyone. It would be a small investment for a great ROI.
All in all this property is in a great location with great hosts. Despite the items above, this property was nice to be in. I do recommend this place and would more than likely book this property in the future provided they address certain items.
A big thank you to Carol and her family for being a gracious and attentive host!
Thank you for letting us know about the extra bed pillows.. We will definitely take a look at them and throw out any stained ones. Sometimes our humidity does that to pillows, etc. that are not used regularly and just sit in the closet.
If we had known you were having trouble with the wi fi, we would have been happy to reboot the modem and router for you as it sometimes gets confused. When working properly, it is quite fast.
Thank you for bringing these things to our attention. Much appreciated.
