Guestbook comments from the owner

The Lincoln Family found the "Kailua Executive Resort Living" Very Satisfactory. The Executive Resort sleeps 8 comfortably but accommodated the 10 in our party easily. The owner greeted us personally and showed us extreme hospitality. The estate is beautifully furnished and has all the comforts of your own home and more. Our family really loved the pool and the hot tub before and at the end of our touring day. The estate has great views of the mountains, bay and ocean. We could easily travel to any place on the island and return to the estate and be away from all the tourists. We would recommend this estate for your visit to Oahu. We would have appreciated air conditioning that was advertised, but adjusted without it. We enjoyed our total experience in Oahu, Hawaii and the services of Hawaii Beach Rentals.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The home was beautiful and overall worked well for our family. The view from the deck was wonderful. Location was great, close to Kailua and beaches. On our arrival Walters personal assistant Christina met us and gave us a tour of the property. However, there were a few issues that needed attention. We would have expected the house be in pristine condition since we paid a $400.00 cleaning fee for our stay. there were areas that were not clean and found mold around some windows. The shower in the downstairs bath did not work; ice maker in refrigerator was broken; and game room television did not work. It took some time to figure out the heater for the spa, since obvious controls did not work. Also, the pool, even thought nice to look at, was too cool for swimming. Most of the issues were taken care of by maintenance man Kazu, but only about 3 days before end of stay. Kazu even went to his own home and got a television to replace the broken one. Even though Walter was away he was very responsive by phone and text to address the issues. Christina and Kazu were wonderful to work with. Our family had a wonderful vacation on Oahu, but felt that the house was overpriced for it's condition. Stay was for the last week of Dec. 2017, into early Jan. 2018.

Beautiful property, Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My stay here is something I will never forget!

The location was perfectly located in the vicinity to all of Oahu's most beautiful beaches like Lanikai, Kailua, Bellows, Waimanalo, Sandy's, Hawaii-Kai (Bellows was my fav). I have previously stayed in Waikiki which was just way too buy and overcrowded for me. I got more of the Hawaiian feel staying here in Kailua where it wasn't so touristy. It is conveniently located near the highway so if you like to see the rest of the island you can get there in no time. Kailua town is also very close by. There are amazing views from the property. You can see the Pacific on one side and the mountains on the other. The landscaping is also very beautiful, I loved the plumerias. If you're an avid hiker or like trail biking Mt Olomana known as 3 peaks is right next door! It is one of the best hikes on Oahu and you can walk there from the property. Maunawili Falls is also very close by which is about a 5 min drive.

Inside the home was very beautiful! It had more than enough amenities to make me feel comfortable. It made me feel like I was in my own home. The bed was very comfy and the island breeze was very relaxing. I slept very well after a long day at the beach! The property is very well-maintained and taken care of inside and out. The owner was very gracious and welcoming. He answered any questions I had about the area and asked if i needed anything before I arrived.

I would definitely recommend this place to vacation! It has everything you need and more for the Hawaiian experience! I would love to stay here again! All I need is my suitcase and a plane ticket.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was an excellent home base for our 8-person vacation in Oahu. The house is well-kept and clean. It was stocked with all the items that help make for an easy and enjoyable vacation - beach towels and chairs, beach toys, tennis rackets, golf clubs, extra bedding, paper towels and plenty of cookware, glasses, plates and cutlery. The home layout allowed the family to take advantage of the great Hawaiian outdoors. Each of the upstairs bedrooms open up to a balcony. We enjoyed watching the sunrise over Kailua Bay from the main floor balcony in the morning and enjoyed lunch by pool in the covered lanai in the afternoon. The yard was beautiful, full of tropical plants.

The Kailua location was an excellent choice. The house is just minutes away from beaches (Kailua and Waimanalo) and was very close to Whole Foods, Safeway and Target, just in case you need to pick up a few extras.Honolulu is only a 10 minute drive away, but it was nice to stay in a location that was free from the Honolulu traffic.

The owner was very friendly, always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had and tried to ensure that our expectations were met. Overall, we would absolutely recommend this house to anyone interested.

When I realized the AC was not operational, I expressed my concern and was told "don't worry, its breezy"...Well, with all of the windows open, it was still too warm AND we had the loud traffic noise. The pool was too cold to swim in because the heater is also NOT operational. The worst part is that we were not told that there were renters in the garage so the grounds are NOT private. People were coming and going and at night with the windows open we could here them talking outside. I was so miserable we had to finish our vacation elsewhere and the owner would not give me a partial refund for the time not spent here. Please save your vacation and stay elsewhere! It is NOT worth the money!

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not completely read the description of the property listed on VRBO. There are NO renters living in the garage. Our garages are not designed for renters. The garages are used for personal vehicles and storage. There are two cottages on the property separated by three car garages. Central Air Condition units are disconnected to control cost. If we offer central air condition our nightly rate would be much higher.

Amazing venue!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week with my fiance and guests and it was such a beautiful and amazing home for us. We also hosted our wedding there on one of the days and it was a magical day with such a great setup around the pool and outdoor area.

A great location for family, a group of friends, or to host an event.

The owner is very generous and made sure all the details for our stay were perfect including painting a section of the outside wall he knew would end up in our wedding photos! These kind of details show a genuine care for his guests who stay at his house.

Kailua & Lanikai beaches are nearby, a few great hikes, along with Kailua town for everything you need.

A beautifully perfect estate in the best location on the island, Kailua.

Wonderful stay, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

9 of us stayed at the property for Christmas and New Year's (7 adults and 2 teenagers) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! A few highlights from our stay:

- We were a bit worried that the location would be far from the tourist sites but actually ended up enjoying the location even more because it wasn't in a busy tourist area. The house is in a residential area very close to Whole Foods, Safeway, restaurants, shopping, beaches. It was about 25 minutes from the airport. We would definitely recommend the Lanikai Pillbox hike for beautiful sunrises and both Hanauma Bay and Makapu'u Lighthouse Trail were easy to get to as well as various beautiful beaches. When we wanted a bit more chaos, Waikiki was an easy drive away.

- The owner is one of the nicest and most accommodating people. He stocked the house with a welcome basket of various goodies and many bottles of complimentary wine in the wine refrigerator. He checked in to make sure we didn't need anything after we were situated and was happy to accommodate early check-in or late check-out to make sure we had the most pleasant experience. He made the booking process and check-in and check-out process very easy.

- The house is beautiful and felt very private. We loved the decor and the abundance of windows and natural light. There are 4 bedrooms (3 upstairs, 1 downstairs). The master suite is huge with a huge master bathroom and a private patio area with beautiful views that we loved to use for reading or our morning coffee. The 2 other upstairs bedrooms do share a bathroom but that wasn't an issue for us. The downstairs bedroom has it's own bathroom. The house has numerous sitting areas and couches when you do need a little privacy from the rest of the guests. The lower level has a poker table and bar that opens to the pool area, which we took advantage of. There are numerous balconies throughout the house and a grill on the patio outside of the kitchen. We were able to find everything we needed in the house - beach towels, tennis rackets, golf clubs, poker chips, coffee maker, etc. We loved the private tennis court and spent hours on the courts.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house and would highly recommend it. Mahalo!
