Wonderful, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. Suzanne was accommodating and friendly! The unit is spacious and well-kept; the bed is very comfortable. It really is as beautiful as it appears in the photos.

Suzanne is also a very well-known painter and all the art you see on site is her own.

The unit is minutes from the beach and very close to the city. Very highly recommended.

Cute little oasis near Kailua town and beach

  • 5 of 5

Great value in this nicely decorated apartment attached to owner's main house and art studio near Kailua town and beach. The place had everything we needed and a lovely view of the manicured tropical grounds, hot tub and pool from the main living/dining/kitchen area. We enjoyed going for a hot tub soak and cool pool dip, even on the rainy/cloudy days. Easy walk to beach and town from this residential neighborhood. Highly recommended for an off-the-beach stay on the windward side.

Nice and clean. Great stay.

  • 4 of 5

I had a great stay. Well equipped and tastefully designed apartment. Plenty of towels, soap, kitchenware etc. Whole property, garden, pool etc felt very well maintained.

Only negative I have to say is that when I left the room and forgot to turn off the A/C, the remote was taken from me and handed back later in the evening. Felt like it was done as showing an example. Owner is very friendly and it's a great thing they care for the environment and try to lower their costs, but a friendly reminder would have been enough.

First.... false advertisement. It is not owner off site. Owner lives on property. Many, many rules, and unfortunately they change on a daily basis. Very hard to keep track of what is and is not allowed. Owner was very rude to us and made us feel very uncomfortable during the last part of our stay even though we kept and abided by every rule. We were in the Kailua area for a family wedding and was looking to relax and forget about life for a while. It was beautiful for the first few days, but then we were constantly interrupted by the owner. Really think about spending so much money on a place you'll feel uncomfortable. One pro is that the place is gorgeous just like the pictures show. Looks like paradise. Will not stay here again or refer to family or friends. This is a vacation rental my husband and I call "One and Done".

Owner's Response: I think this review is a bit unfair from my perspective. Firstly i dont advertise I live off sit,. I manage the calendar off site fomr the vrbo online. Secondly I gave them permission to have outside guests to use the hot tub when that is not usually allowed. They asked nicely ahead of time and I had no other personal interaction with them until they were setting the owners table for dinner in my private lanai and I gently explained that that was my table in my lanai. They later emailed that I was rude. I apologized as I didnt know I was and I sent them a gift thru the mail of a six pack of greeting cards. I only spoke with them once, usually guests say they never see me and want to meet me, as I respect people's privacy and need for relaxing in our tropical oasis. We have a booklet in the unit to explain wifi, laundry, great choices for shopping, beaches, hiking. No rule changing and from this encouter I made a new page with a picture of the table to say it was private. Very simple. I am sorry they were unhappy

Somewhat disappointed

  • 3 of 5

I have to agree with many of the positive comments that have been written about our poolside view unit. Susanne was often very helpful in providing items that we needed for the unit. She even provided us with a water gun to spray the yapping dog next door. I would encourage you to think carefully about choosing this unit over the others that are situated on either side of the main house. Beautiful view comes with a bit of a price. You are right beside and attached to the main house. So when the owner has a party (which happened one night without any heads up and it went on until after 11 and we could even hear the noise in our bedroom) or even when she has people over for dinner, or having a hot tub at night, the noise travels right inside unless you close all the windows to help muffle the conversations, as the bathroom and kitchen windows open right into Suzanne's dining center and you can over hear all her conversations (and vice versa). We really minded having to close our windows when this happened. Open windows is our preference as it really helps for cross drafts as we didn't want to turn on the a.c., especially as there is a $50 charge if you leave it on when you are not on site and it is found running. We would also have appreciated a heads up that the beautiful state of the art pool was not heated. One of the main reasons for choosing this place was for the gorgeous pool that ended up being too cold for us and the other guests to swim in. This should be mentioned in the pool description, especially during winter months. When I inquired about if the pool was heated, Suzanne told me that she wished she was rich enough to afford heating it. This is not an appropriate response to paying customers. All other facilities are great, like the hot tub (which takes 30 minutes to heat up) and laundry facilities. Don't try to judge a book by its cover, but you might want to before you rent this particular unit. It looks great on the outside and it's the details that you might want to consider before making a final decision. If you are used to having privacy that a hotel room would offer, or a single, vrbo housing unit, then this is not the place for you.

Owner's Response: I am always a bit sad to hear someone has not had a great stay. They were right about one night that I had some girlfriends over after tennis and one or two got a bit loud. I do my best to keep this place very quiet and it is quiet about 97 % of the time. I also recently heard about a product called dog bark so if a neighbor has a dog that decides to bark we could turn this one. It doesn't happen very often but it is annoying when it does so I will be purchasing this. If someone wants full privacy it comes at a price. We all share to be able to stay in kailua and on this fabulous property. the cost are enormeous for water , electricity, taxes etc so I feel that I offer very high quality at a great price and you get a great deal. There are no hotels here and if they were it would be easily $450 a night plus a ton of other fees. I will do my best to compensate guests if I have friends over that get a little loud, and as I mentioned before I work very hard to keep this place peaceful and tranquil.
