Plenty of space for family reunion

  • 4 of 5

My extended family and I (13 of us) rented the home for a family wedding that we attended in Hawaii. There was plenty of space. The home is actually two separate houses connected by a center family/ living room with a hot tub in the middle of that room! Interesting location for a hot tub but the kids had fun soaking in the hot tub at the same time they watched tv! The kitchen in the house in the front of the property was where we kept all our food becuase it was closest to the front door. But this part of the house which had much more natural light was very hot. To use the other kichen, which is cooler, but much darker, would’ve meant schlepping all the groceries through the front house to the back house. Air conditioning was only available in the bedrooms. although there were ceiling fans in most of the common areas, it still got very hot and stuffy even with all the windows open. Instead of relaxing in the common areas, people took refuge in their own bedrooms to get some relief from the heat of the rest of the home, which kind of defeats the purpose of a family reunion. A few things needed fixing shortly after we arrived and Kalia was quick to respond and make the necessary repairs. The home could’ve been a bit cleaner. There were many squished cockroaches and bugs on the floors where the electrical outlets were located and under the furniture. We caught 3 huge live cockroaches while we were there, but they may have gotten into the house when we had the doors open. The bedrooms were nice and cool with the overhead fans and AC and the beds, pillows and linens on the beds were very comfortable. The home is located just down the street from the beach, just a few minutes walk. The beach itself was pretty nice with good waves for boogie boarding, but there was a lot of trash on the beach which washed onto shore from other places. The locals and visitors try to gather some of the trash and stack it up in piles along the beach, for hopefully someone to gather eventually. The house had a storage area in the back where there were plenty of beach chairs and boogie boards to use, which was nice. There was not a lot of places to eat in the immediate area, but Kailua is only about 10-15 minutes away where there is a foodland and plenty of restaurants. In general, we were satisfied with the house for our large group.

Wonderful house with great beach access!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 12 rented this house for five nights in June of 2018. It was perfect for our needs! We had plenty of room for both sleeping and living together. The kitchens were nicely stocked with all of our basic necessities The beach was ideal - beautiful and very private. Our only disappointment was that the house did get very hot during the day. Fortunately, all of the bedrooms are nicely cooled by room air-conditioners, so everyone slept well at night. This house is a definite "do-again" for us!

House is a good size and close to beach

  • 3 of 5

The house was the perfect size for our family of 6 adults and 3 children. It was great that the bedrooms were air-conditioned as well as having ceiling fans, however, the dining area in the back of the house could also use a fan. We loved being close to the beach. We were told the house had 2 pack-n-plays, but found that the box for one in a bedroom closet was empty, and the one in another closet had tears in the mesh and was not safe for a baby. We had to buy 2 pack-n-plays at Target for our use and asked to be reimbursed. Either the contact information in the check-in instructions was incorrect or no one monitored them. During the time we were there, I tried to call twice, but no one answered and voicemail was not set up. I sent two emails and never received a response. The house could also use a thorough cleaning. It was very dirty under furniture, which we discovered when the kids played with their toys. We got rid of several large cockroaches and saw some ants in one of the cabinets.

A great extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation location, close to the beach, and very comfortable for an extended family. We had three families - parents [grandparents], 2 daughters and their families.

Kitchens nicely equipped. Great patio to cool off, enjoy the breeze and relax. Nice backyard for kids to play. Comfortable beds. SHORT [approx 120 yds] walk to the beach.

Little bit misleading about number of bathrooms. Only one toilet for two bedrooms in front portion of house. Three toilets for 3 bedrooms in back portion of house. One of the listed 5 bathrooms is probably the 'shower only' attached to the rec room.

Advertised as equipped with beach equipment. None we could locate, so we bought and left for future guests: 3 boogie boards, 3 beach chairs, and sand toys. We also bought and left for future guests to use - charcoal for bbq, and extra paper products.

Overall, a nice clean and comfortable family vacation home ideally placed close to a wonderful and uncrowded beach. My family and I appreciate the opportunity to stay there for a week and would definitely recommend it for your consideration.

Owner's Response: Aloha Bill and Family, It was great to host you all. Apologies for not making the beach gear available. I may have over looked not providing the combo for the beach gear closet in the car port. So sorry. However, I truly appreciate that you were able to truly enjoy the area, the solitude of the beach, the yard, patio and the Tradewinds. You are welcome at Beachfront Villas Hawaii anytime. Thank you for being mindful of caring for the property. Again, thank you and best regards. Aloha, Kalia Kalama Property Manager

Our homes offer the best of both worlds: old Hawaiian style cottage living with all the modern amenities needed (plus more!). We provide authentic island style accommodations near the beach, away from the hustle & bustle of Waikiki. We are in the small country town of Waimanalo, but are still just 15 minutes to Kailua Beach & Lanikai Beach, 25 minutes to Honolulu Town & Diamond Head, 45 minutes to Pearl Harbor & a 1 hour drive to the infamous North Shore. Waimanalo is home to one of the World’s most beautiful beaches as well as a few locally owned & operated restaurants & shops.

When you step out on to the beach; you’ll see a heavenly view of Rabbit Island & the infamous Waimanalo ocean blues plus the majestic Ko’olau Mountain Range!

Enjoy your morning coffee (we recommend Hawai’i-grown Kona) & sunrise on the beach. Be sure to be on the lookout for our Hawaiian sea turtle ohana! The endangered “Honu” aka Hawaiian Sea Turtles love playing in the crashing waves of the Pacific…

During winter months (December to March) keep your eyes open for Humpback Whales!

Waimanalo Beach offers some of the SAFEST swimming & MOST SUPERB snorkeling in the Hawaiian Islands! The natural reef & plentiful native corals & fish provide protection to our coastlines & a plethora of color under the sea, sure to captivate you & your family… Some favorite guests seen from the area include: the State Fish; Humuhumunukunukuapua’a & State Mammal; the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. We provide snorkels, fins & masks plus fishing gear upon request.

Waimanalo Bay Beach & Makapu’u Beach, both world-renowned for body surfing & are two of Oahu’s top boogie boarding beaches for beginners, are less than 2 miles from our homes PLUS we provide boogie boards for your use so you’re all good to go!

We LOVE our FREE CONCIERGE services from SeekSpot! Ask us or our SeekSpot Ohana about: Hiking, Beach-Combing, Meditation, Outdoor or Indoor Yoga, Scuba Diving,

Mountain Climbing, Horse-Back Riding, Sailing, Whale Watching, Bird Watching, Scenic Drives, Surfing, Paddling, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Golf or Minature Golf, Waterfalls, Sauna & Spa, Botanical Gardens, Restaurants, Shopping, Site-Seeing, Luaus, Historical Museums & MORE!
