A wonderful place to stay; it feels like a house a 1950s movie star would have owned and entertained loads of guests at!
Having the indoor grill to cook for 9 people was extremely convenient and the house is so large that everyone still feels like they have their own private space.
To begin with let me say the only nice thing about this home is the view. This is a old home with much needed cleaning, repair and renovation.
What the description didn’t tell was the house fronts Kaneohe Bay Drive. There is constant traffic from scooters, motorcycles, transit buses, trucks of various sizes and all with loud engines.
From the base of the stairs to the master bedroom the carpet was dirty, full of stains. There had been a towel bar on the wall near the shower but it had been pulled off and the holes not repaired. The lanai off the master bedroom: mold and mildew were on the chair cushions
The second lanai had no furniture and the tile was covered in mold and mildew.
Wi-Fi in the house worked about 10% of the time.
Toward the end of our visit I called the owner and asked if we could have some extra guests over for a BBQ. This is something the owner requires for visitors. His response was if he gets a complaint of noise from a neighbor he keeps our security deposit. This bit of information was not in the rental agreement. I told him that they were well behaved. He said when people get drinking they make allot of noise. I told him that it’s ok for the neighbors to make a noise complaint but his renters cannot. The dog next door that would bark all night and day. He said he can’t control his neighbors.
We didn’t use the Jacuzzi as there was too much sand in the bottom and something floating in the strainer.
False advertising. The pictures posted on AirB&B were nothing like what the house looks like.
The reservation was canceled 34 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is a super place to see the Island from! It has wonderful views and is roomy and comfortable. Nick was super and helped with little issues I had. I have lived in Hawaii most of my life and I can tell you this is a super deal and is really easy to get to from the H3 on the Windward side of the island. You don't have the noise of Waikiki just birds chirping in the morning. With much Aloha (website hidden) I would definitely stay here again and the remodeled kitchen was great.
Nick was a perfect Host! Always was available by phone, was very easy to talk to, & very accomidating. The guest house was clean, comfortable, and well kept. The view is truly spectacular! We were very pleased with our stay, and hope to visit again soon. Thank you Nick for Magical memories made!
Very very very very nice:)
The apartment is clean and you have sooo many beach appliances you can use for freeeeee!
The view is of course astonishing. To Kailua or Lanikai Beach it is a 7 min car drive. To Waikiki it is around half an hour, what is also very good.
It's quite and idyllic. Perfect for couples:)
Very nice home. Nick was kind enough to let us check in a couple of hours earlier. There was a bit of a double booking on our last night but it was an Airbnb problem not Nicks. Nick ended up giving us the 1 bedroom unit and studio for our last night but we didn't need both so we ended up just taking the 1 bedroom unit.
Access to all swimming equipment
All kitchen equipment avail - Pots, pans, utensils, plates, bowls, glasses, coffee mugs, tea towels etc
Bath towels & hand towels supplied
Close to Kailua beach and Windward mall
- No air con - needed windows open all the time
- No screen windows/doors - at night a lot of insects would come in because of attraction to lights
- No mention in description of house that it was a 2 storey house - my mother has a knee problem & found it hard to go up and down the stairs
- No curtains or blinds in living room/kitchen area
- I was not notified that someone was going to be in house to do clean up in down stairs toilet - we were advised that a plumber was coming in on our second day but were not notified that another person was coming on the fourth day of our stay - it wasn't nice coming back from a long day of shopping to find a man in our accommodation.
Note: ensure you take a few quarters for washing machine & drier ($1.50 for each machine)
Fantastic accommodation for a large group.Huge home with all amenities (website hidden) don't do the view justice...amazing!
We were group of 10 family & friends from Australia celebrating my 60th (website hidden) was the perfect location .Pool was well used by all.
Nick is a very accommodating host.Hope to return some day.
Our family had a fantastic time in Kailua, we did not want to come home! Nick is a gracious and accommodating host. Thank you for a great trip!
The Villa was amazing. The house is beautiful and spacious. Everything was provided to make our stay comfortable. The only thing that we had to bring was food.
