About Alissa

I bought and lived in this wonderful house from 2007 to 2010, and during that time went through the house carefully - updating and upgrading all aspects. I had the pool put in and did a major landscaping, and I selected all the furniture personally, by exploring import boutiques and carefully selecting various pieces over time.

Unfortunately, I had to move to the mainland for work, so I have been renting the home to a family for the last three years. Now they are moving on, and I am looking for new tenants.

Currently, I live and work in Ashland Oregon, where I am an administer at the local university.

I love the home and think it is a very special place, someday (6 years?), I hope to return and live there again!

Here is a (work) picture of me.....

Alissa purchased this house in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Alissa's house was an absolute perfect gem. My family of 9 stayed at her beautiful home in Lanikai. It is as pictured but better. The deck outside is large and surrounded by lush green jungle, perfect for entertaining. There are a couple koi/fish ponds around the property as well and a pretty water feature on the deck. The wood floors are stunning, the location is literally like a 3 min walk from the beach. There is even a shower in one of the bathrooms that's an enclosed outdoor area so it feels as if you are bathing in the jungle. I loved it! Listening to the crickets at night with the windows open for some fresh Hawaiian air was amazing. It's very quiet and peaceful. The pool also has a hot tub that spills into it. There was lots of towels and she provided some beach toys too such as a kayak and paddle board among a few other things, perfect things for use in Lanikai. Kailua town is a short ten min drive where you can find whole foods, wine shops and anything else you need. Communication was very easy with Alissa and she responded very quickly to everything and left a detail print out of instructions. The design of the house leaves for privacy for everyone with bedrooms situated in the corners of the home. It was clean and comfortable. Plenty of beds and extra bedding. My family and I would most definitely stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you Alissa for helping make our trip so memorable.”

Very, very impressed!!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at Alissa's house just last week. There were 8 of us staying in the house, and it was very spacious and quite comfortable. The back garden was spectacular, with a wonderful pool and beautiful gardens. Except for a few odds and ends, everything we needed was there for our stay. Alissa was also a great communicator and always answered any queries that we had. If we are ever in Kailua again, we would definitely stay here. :)

Thanks again Alissa, for making our family holiday a very enjoyable one!

Blissful island sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 9 consisted of three generations, ages 17 to 75. All of us agree that the house was comfortable and large enough to not feel crowded. The location allows for privacy while being located within walking distance to one of the best beaches in the world. The property was very clean and well maintained and was a great base from where to explore Oahu. Our favorite spot was the patio where we spent most of our time during our 11 day stay. Supermarkets and restaurants are a short drive from the house. Overall, we had a fantastic time in Hawaii and the house contributed greatly. I would definitely recommend staying at this property. The property manager was very helpful and also suggested some things to do that are not on the radar of most tourists.

Dirty, Dated and On The Market!

  • 1 of 5

Dated, Dirty and On the Market!!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We were really disappointed! This property was dirty, in need of repairs and updates, and has just been put up for sale. I would not rent it again!! The owner moved out years ago and has let it go. We travel internationally and often, using VRBO, Homeaway and other sites, and have NEVER complained before. The reviews (except from Carmen) are from three years ago. Read below if you have or plan on booking this place!!!

We arrived to find dirty dishes in the cabinets, towels and bedding still in the dryer, the pool and hot tub electrical breakers blowing constantly, molding outdoor cushions, a broken towel rack, ancient beach towels and a horrible sectional in the living room that is not the one photographed.

Her house manager, Kaleo ( who is a friend, helping out) quickly went to the store and replaced pans, cushions and towels but not glasses or dish ware as we suggested. THEN, I found out that she was putting it on the market in three days, and I had just spent the day, basically staging it for her.

The TVS in the bedroom do not work and we are VERY technologically savvy. There is one Roku box that she suggests moving from room to room, if you have an account to sign in to. The pool guy, Scott, came and showed us how to flip the breaker and changed the hot tub temp control from the set 90 degrees to 102.

We offered to leave so that she could fix all the problems and receive a refund for the remaining nights. She declined. We offered to let people in for a discount. She declined.

I am writing my first bad review ever. Do not rent this property! It is super sad because it has tons of potential but the owner is disillusioned as to what is really happening in her place. She doesn't believe in bed skirts, so she leaves the box spring visible per her design tastes. It is not worth that much money a night, even in Lanikai!

Owner's Response: This was a very difficult situation. I responded to every one of her numerous emails, sent the pool person and my property manager (who is a professional not a friend) over twice - and almost immediately - to meet her every whim - including shopping for her to suit her needs. I have a strong suspicion this person books places and complains endlessly hoping for a discount by threatening a bad review. Frankly I do not believe her claims that this is her first bad review. This is my first ever bad review and the proof of that is on Homeaway! Yes, I took the home off vacation rental for awhile, and spent lots of time and money fixing it up. Her claims are just not true - including that I do not have recent positive reviews as you can see.

Wonderful home and location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location close to the beach. The pool and jacuzzi (in particular) were a great hit with the kids. We'd definitely stay here again.

You'll LOVE this place!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property to treat our 2 kids and parents for our 14th wedding Anniversary. We loved how quiet & secluded the home was. The backyard infinity pool & spa are surrounded by lush, mature jungle looking landscaping. Can't even see a neighbour! We enjoyed how the kitchen and living room spills out naturally to the lanai. The kitchen is modern and fully functioning. We had lots of room and lotsa bathrooms. Our 13 year old enjoyed a lightning fast internet connection and the on-site boogie boards when we could tear him away from gaming lol. Our 6 year old daughter couldn't get enough of the Koi ponds and was chiefly in charge of feeding the fish daily. The town of Kailua is charming, and this place is so close to private access to Lanikai Beach......We loved it!

"Dad, you've got to buy that house,"

  • 5 of 5

"Dad, next time can we stay for 20 days instead of 10 days?" "Dad, you've got to buy that house,"

These two statements from a nine-year-old member of our family group offer a good summary review of our stay at this house in July 2013.

We had carefully researched the many descriptions and photos of houses available for rent in Kailua, Oahu. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and we wanted a house that would bring us together with our two sons and their families. We sought a place that all could easily mingle, but that offered enough room so all could pursue individual activities and have privacy for sleeping. A pool would be a benefit.

We choose well. As our vacation went on, my wife kept saying, "This was just the right place for us." It started the first night when she looked up to see one of our sons and two daughters-in-law all busily moving about the kitchen. They prepared a lot a great meals in the well designed kitchen and with the help of the outside grill.

Meanwhile the kids were in and out of the pool and or playing video games together and other family members lounged on the lanai or on the comfortable indoor couches. An extra bonus was the falling mangoes. The kids enjoyed the mango hunt. Tree-ripened mangos are wonderful and the number recovered from the deck or pool daily were sufficient for all.

We had three cars so that each group in our family could individual opportunities to move about the island, as well as the option to be together. All the activities of the Island are easily accessible from Kailua, a great base for a Hawaii vacation.

Juggling three cars in a limited parking area at the house was a challenge, as was backing up a long drive. I left this task to my son, who was the expert., This most definitely is not a deal breaker. Every one of us would whole heartedly recommend a stay here, especially for a family group such as ours.

Map

Car: recommended

The home is in Lanikai, just to the left of Kailua Beach Park. It's near the end of the Lanikai loop a block and half up the street.

Located on the windward side of Oahu, Lanikai is world renowned for its white sand beaches, water sports (kayaking, sail boarding, surfing), and cultural activities so as the Polynesian Cultural Village. Next to Kailua town - a cute and easily accessible village with lovely restaurants, shops, grocery stores, banks etc. Everything you need for a wonderful and easy holiday!
