great vacation home for family retreat
The homeowner was gracious enough to share their beautiful home with us while my family was on vacation. Clear, timely, friendly communication. Very clean quiet well-equipped house. Amazing view.
Often times vacation rental kitchens are sparsely equipped. This one is fully equipped and allowed us to save lots of money by cooking many meals for our family. Even a full spice cabinet and condiments were shared. The large barbeque unit allowed outdoor cooking, helping keep the house cooler.
Only the three upstairs bedrooms are air conditioned. Our in-laws staying in the ground-floor bedroom tried to maintain some comfort using the fans and closing off the south of the house from afternoon sun, but it was a struggle and it still got too hot for sleeping comfort. This was a late July stay, maybe it's not as bad in the winter. At least a portable or temporary air conditioner down there would have been welcome.
We would stay again although maybe not summertime unless an air conditioner was available in the downstairs bedroom.
All in all recommended.
good views and pleasantly apportioned
We had 8 people from age 17 to 83 and never felt crowded. The house was well stocked . It even had surf boards (which we did not use). The location was excellent for our needs being only 12-20 minutes from Waikiki beach or Hanauma Bay. It was much more personal than a hotel and we felt like we were having a family reunion. It was like home away from home
Spacious,beautiful view, private, lots of amenities-pool, hot tub, ping pong, games, etc.
Beautiful home, lots of space for the 7 of us.
Excellent vacation home!
This house has it all. We were a family of 6 and had tons of space. Every bedroom had it's own bathroom with shampoo/conditioners and bodywashes being supplied. House is well stocked from kitchen to tolietries. Having a washer and dryer are so nice after a day at the beach. Owners provided alot of ammenities such as beach chairs, snorkeling gear, boards and coolers. The pool and hottub were clean and everything worked well. The views at day and night are amazing. The only request would be air conditioning on the main floor, but far from being a deal breaker as they have plenty of windows, blinds and fans. Debbie was great to work with and checked in with us to make sure we had everything. I would highly recommend this home, and we would definetly come back.
Great home for a family get away
Our family of 8 truly enjoyed this home. It was roomy and comfortable with everyone able to have their own room and connecting bathroom! The kitchen was well equipped and meal preparation was a breeze. Convenient located near grocery, restaurants and Starbucks but separated from neighbors and congestion. The pool and hot tub were especially appreciated after a long beach day and afternoon swim or nightly relaxation. The owners were attentive and helpful throughout the stay! Thanks Wilcox's for sharing your home with us.
Aloha Pat and thank you very much! We're so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay and all the amenities. Mahalo :)
Beautiful house, better than expected. Amazing house and location.
We stayed here for 2 weeks in July of 2016, there were 6 adults and 3 children. The house was significantly better than the pictures suggested to us.
Each of the 4 bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms. The 3 bedrooms upstairs had air-conditioning, the one bedroom downstairs beside the pool did not have A/C.
The house is about 1.5 KMs from the ocean and is elevated about 200 feet, the views of the ocean and tree tops to the south side of the house are fantastic.
The pool was very nice and warm while we were there. The pool is over 6 feet in the deep end and about 5 feet in the shallow end. There is a ledge at the shallow end that small children can splash around in, with adult supervision of course. At the deep end there is a alcove that is about 1 foot deep with two chairs and umbrella, a nice place to sit. We found the pool was nicely shaded in the morning, then in full sun from about 10 am to 3 pm, then 3 pm it it was half-shaded and progressed to full shade by 6 PM. The shade was actually nice, since we didn't have to get sun-block on. Our 8 year old son spent a lot of time in the pool!
The kitchen was great and had all the necessary appliances, flat ware, silverware, and cookware.
The house and area felt secure. The drive is gated. We left all the windows open all the time in the non-air conditioned part of the house.
The house is about 10 mins from Hanauma bay, if you plan to go I recommend that you go after 4:30 the day(s) before you want to go, watch the orientation video, add your name to the repeat visitors list, then on the day you want to go get yourself driven up (either a friend, shuttle, taxi, etc), and then walk down. The place is SUPER buys all the time, and the only way to drive down and get parking is to go before 8 AM or later in the day after 3 PM.
Sandy Beach is 15 mins to the east. Nice beach with lots of wave action, however, it is not for beginners. The shore break is really dangerous. Further east is another beautiful beach, Waimanalo Beach Park.
For some not-so-scary surf, no rain, and white sand I'd recommend Mākaha, Hawaii. A little bit of a drive, but it will mostly likely not be raining as it is on a dry part of the island, and the wave action is good, but not scary, and the jelly fish were not there.
Waikiki is about 20 mins west. Lots of shopping, other than the shopping, Waikiki was not for us, but it might be for some.
We would go back to this house and would recommend to others.
Centrally located between Waikiki (10 min.to the west) and Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach, and Sea Life Park (10 min. to the east).
