Great Beach House!

  • 4 of 5

This property was a great place to stay. Plenty of room and right on the beach! We enjoyed the living room, dining room, and kitchen area being so open. Also, kitchen was fully supplied with all of the pots, pans, plates, and utensils. Game room was a hit with all the kids staying with us! The only thing that I would say that needs some updating is the bedding (sheets, pillows, and bedspreads) needs to be updated.

Mahalo and hope to have you in the near future.

The property is older but clean with many amenities including biggie boards sand chairs sand toys.

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was supplied was many utensils. The game room is a separate building with pool ping pong goose all and large tv. Sleeping for 2 in the game room. The main house had beds for 14. Beach and surf great. Care taker was changed during the 3 weeks and trouble getting replies due to that reason.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving a good review for Kekela Nui Beachfront House. We want to make sure that the guests enjoy the beach and surf as well so we have those beach amenities in the home. As a downtime, we also have the gameroom for the whole family to enjoy. We now have a very reliable caretaker and should be easily getting in touch with when you need assistance or help. Mahalo!

Family Christmas Nov 28-Dec 5, 2017

  • 3 of 5

I brought my entire family to this property for a Christmas gift this year. There were 20 of us.

PROS: We loved the large yard and the path that ran to the beach. The house was big enough that we really didn't notice that there were 20 of us there. We loved that house the property was so close to many entertainment possibilities but was also in a quiet area of Oahu. The kitchen was large enough to cook the meals for our large group. The game room was awesome.

CONS: The advertisement of this property states that it sleeps 20 through VRBO. This property is actually a listing from Home Away and their fine print states that anymore than 16 in the group will be charged $50.00 per night per person. I was very unhappy when I found this out. My copy of the contract shows 20 people with no extra costs. However, when I got the first installment the extra was added in. At that point it was too late to look for another property for that many people. I contacted VRBO and they did deduct half of the extra fees. Just be aware. The master bedroom was gorgeous but none of the electrical outlets worked. My husband uses some medical equipment at night and there was no electricity to run the equipment. We had to buy an extension cord and run it from the bathroom to the bedroom. I think the whole house has electrical problems. We also have 3 grandchildren with CF that were unable to run their machines for their breathing treatments they need to do twice a day.

Since I had to pay for the extra people in my party I thought they would at least give extra bedding. None were to be found. Many of my group had to sleep on pillows without pillowcases. The groundskeeper was notified of this the day after we arrived plus the plug on the tub in one of the bathrooms was broken and we were unable to use this bathroom to bathe our 1 yr old grandson. I called the groundskeeper 2-3 times and left messages each time She finally called me back the day before we left and said she had only received one call from me. How convenient for her.I have rented many times from VRBO ( this is actually the 3rd time in Oahu) and I can say that I would have expected more from the people who take care of the reservations and from the groundskeeper.

LOCATION WAS WONDERFUL LOVED BEING NEXT TO THE BEACH DISAPPOINTED IN THE HOUSE ITSELF.

  • 2 of 5

OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM WAS THE INFESTION OF RATS WE SET A TRAP AND CAUGHT ONE BUT WE SAW 2 OTHERS NOT ONLY DID THEY EAT FOOD ON THE COUNTER ,FOOD IN CLOSET ON A SHELF ,FOOD IN SUITCASES THEY ALSO BITE MY DAUGHTERS SANDALS IN MULTIPLE PLACES.

THERE WAS A SLAT BROKEN ON ON OF THE DAY BEDS IN THE GAME ROOM.

ONE OF THE LIGHTS ABOVE THE BAR WAS COVERED WITH FLY OR SOME KIND OF FECIS.

WE TRIED TO CLEAN IT BUT IT STILL LEFT A STAIN.

THE MICROWAVE AND THE TOASTER USED TOGETHER WOULD BLOW A FUSE.

COVER ON OUTLET IN FRONT ROOM MISSING.

WATER LEAK IN SINK NEXT TO OVEN WAS FIXED BY YOUR HANDYMAN.

OVERALL CLEANING NOT UP TO OUR STANDARS.

AT LEAST LET YOUR RENTERS KNOW TO STORE ALL FOOD AND CANDY ITEMS IN THE

FRIDGE OR ON HIGH SHELVES.

Great beach, great house. could have used air conditioning.

  • 4 of 5

Our whole family loved their stay in O'ahu. The house had plenty of room for the 13 of us. The dining room table was fabulous. The house functioned perfectly for us. We are essentially outdoor people and the house had all we could want for taking advantage of the beautiful beach. We took in one site, activity a day and then came home and hit the beach. The grandchildren had to be dragged out of the water at dark. The Bar-B-Q got a lot of use. The only draw backs with the house was its age and the lack of air conditioning. We would have liked air for we were unused to the humidit. Consequently, we used the fans around the clock as well as the lawn chairs on the lanai. There was always a beautiful breeze blowing through the lanai and we took advantage of it. I highly recommend this listing for an active family.

Owner's Response: Aloha Altha! It's great to hear that you loved your stay and that the kids loved the beach. This home is really meant for bigger groups and larger families. We will think about your suggestion about the air conditioning since electric bills are so high in Hawaii. Thank you for a great review. Until your next vacation.

Great space for a large group but needs TLC

  • 3 of 5

The house has many things to offer. There were twelve of us so we appreciated the sleeping capacity (although one little granddaughter wouldn’t sleep in her bed because there were ants in it). Everyone loved the proximity to the beach and the kids swam once or twice every day. The boogie boards and beach chairs were much appreciated. Moms made good use of the washer and dryers.

We were disappointed to find that the house hadn’t been swept before we arrived. There was sand on the floors throughout the house, so one of the first things we did was to sweep. We were asked to remove our shoes when entering the house, which we did, and even after we swept, the floors were so dirty the bottoms of our feet were soon black from walking around barefoot. I discovered Sunday morning that the tub in the master suite hadn’t been cleaned, so I began the Sabbath Day cleaning it so I could take a bath. The fan blades on the overhead fans were covered with black crud.

It required some searching to find functional electrical outlets so we could recharge our devices. A number of outlets don’t have power to them. There was at least one electrical outlet cover missing as well as the glass cover over the light in the master bedroom shower. A couple of clear code violations there.

The promised hair dryer and sand buckets were nowhere to be found.

Something (a mouse perhaps?) helped itself to a banana left on the kitchen counter and gnawed through a plastic container to get at a croissant. Between that and the ants that inhabited the kitchen we had to resort to keeping almost all food in the refrigerator.

I was dismayed to find the house is not air-conditioned. With an average daytime temperature of 85 degrees it is dishonest of the owners to not make that clear.

Most bedrooms had closets but a woeful lack of hangers, and in all but one bedroom, no drawers at all. This place rents by the week. Where do the owners expect their guests to put clothing for that long a stay?

All in all a good location and plenty of room for a group of our size but the house is in serious need of a thorough cleaning, routine maintenance and pest control. Hangers should be provided and, for heaven's sake, bring in dressers or chests of drawers. Also get real and warn potential renters that the place is cooled only by the ocean breezes.

Owner's Response: Aloha Terry! Sorry to hear that the home was not cleaned to your standards. We have brought this attention to the cleaners and rest assured it won't happen again. We have not advertised this home as having an A/C. We will make sure the hair dryer and the buckets will be in the home. I am assuming it was in the other house. Most reservations are both homes. We have called the exterminator and hope to eradicate the ants and the rats. I have also brought up with the owner the hangers and the drawers. Again, we're happy that you chose our beachfront home.
