Evolve Vacation Rental
- English, French, German, Spanish
Condo is so close to the ocean you feel like the ocean goes under your living room. Elise has a lot of nice amenities on hand like playing cards, beach chairs and reef-safe sunscreen that make the place easy.
Beautiful nearly private beach.
The condo was lovely and the photos are very accurate. The neighborhood it is in is not the usual touristy area. Restaurants are for locals but very welcoming. (We enjoyed the Beach House at 604 the most.) To be honest, there is a lot of evident poverty in the area but we didn’t feel unsafe. It was actually interesting to see the other side of Hawaiian life. The property owner was attentive by text and email and she was very helpful. The beach is gorgeous and you can often have it almost to yourselves, which is a real find in Oahu. The same with the pool. Residents here are very friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Beautiful beach, sunsets. Lovely apartment
The apartment had literally everything you need (as the description of the condo details), and has a wonderful view of the beach and turquoise water, and a scenic outcrop of volcanic rock too. There was only one snag, but that was dealt with quickly and efficiently by Elise, the owner: the a/c had suddenly broken down when we arrived and it was 90 F in the apartment. The next day she had a technician come who fixed it in the morning. And she not only gave us a bottle of Prosecco--a nice gesture--but also reimbursed us a night for the first virtually sleepless one without a/c on a particularly warm and muggy day. That's impressive. The staff on-site at the building were all warm and friendly too, especially Nohea. We also loved the ambience of the neighbourhood: people actually live here and it is the anti-thesis of Waikiki. There is a real feel of down-to-earth authenticity and it is not at all built up (except for this beach with its three buildings that stand out for their height--and the building this apartment is in, while clean and well-maintained, is unfortunately not terribly aesthetically pleasing from the outside it must be said). Thanks for a wonderful stay! We hope to be back.
The condo is beautiful and just as described!
Beautiful condo with all the essentials needed for your stay. The owner really goes the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your island getaway. Condo is perfect location, and nice place to return after a long day of venturing out to see the island. Very private beach and peaceful. I highly recommend!!
This condo and the scenery are fabulous.
This location and the condo are just as described. Absolutely gorgeous sunrises and sunsets!
