Our one-bedroom rental, with its own private entrance and off-street parking is minutes from the beach, town, and bus line. Brand new double wall construction and furnishings. It's in a great location in this quaint beach town! The large- 1000sq ft rental has a custom designed kitchen with microwave/range and refrigerator that is a culinary delight. We take pride in all the upgraded details like the custom kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity, split air conditioner in the bedroom, 9ft high ceilings, internet access, huge picture window in the living room, porcelain tile floors and slated covered lanai.

This was our first VBRO and Denise was great at communicating and facilitating the process. The area is on the 2nd floor and is spacious and nice. There are a lot of the basics already in the kitchen and the AC works great in the bedroom. It is walkable to downtown and I even walked to Kailua Beach with the kids, though it is probably just short of a mile. Overall a great experience.
We were pleasantly surprised by the incredibly beautiful views offered by this suite. The owner - Denise, was very nice, and as other reviewers mentioned, she left chocolates and macadamia nuts for us to enjoy, as well as beach towels, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a boogy board. The unit was more spacious then the pictures suggest, and it was great to have a full kitchen. We never used the air conditioning in February, as the cross breezes were amazing. Flat screen t.v.s in both rooms and wifi were much appreciated. My only critical feedback is that there are a few things that have 'worn out' in the unit that could use replacing .... Small things that would make a better impression (e.g., one of the lanai chairs was broken, the lanai table rusted and flaking, the pull out bed was broken, the screens on the Windows put up with tape, the shower glass insert doesn't fit, necessitating also the use of a show curtain which awkwardly covers the glass).... All changes that would make it more esthetically pleasing.
This is the first VBRO that we stayed at. I was hesitant at first but Denise made everything very easy. The apartment was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the full kitchen was a blessing. The location is a 20 min walk to the beach and downtown, and a 10 min walk to a park which was great for my toddler. The A/C works great in the bedroom, though often not needed with the ceiling fans and trade winds. We were pleasantly surprised to find boogey boards and sand toys available to use, it made play time at the beach that much more exciting. I definitely would stay here again.
This condo was right in the middle of the area we wanted to be. My daughter found the couch comfortable enough that we didn't pull out the bed. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. Denise is very nice and we had no problems at all with booking this trip. We would gladly stay again.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in Oahu and this condo was an adequate and reasonably priced home base. We found Kailua to be a good location, a half hour from Honolulu, with lots of interesting sights along the North Shore of the island. A trip to the Makapu’u point in the south is well worth a few hours – less crowded beaches and some great vistas of the ocean and mountains. The Polynesian Cultural Center is a must-see; it was the highlight of our entire trip!
The condo was not overly expensive but we ended up wishing we would had paid a bit more for a fully air-conditioned unit.
The second floor was not an issue. The stairs were not steep and being higher meant a better view of the surrounding hills and better breezes. (The view, however, is obscured somewhat by heavy electric wires.)
The lanai is cute and the condo is roomy and nicely decorated. All necessary pots and pans, kitchenware and such are there (and we’ve been in vacation rentals where such items were sparse). It would have been a delightful home away from home if not for the lack of AC (except in the bedroom) combined with the road noise.
When we arrived the condo was stuffy but the AC in the bedroom quickly cooled down that room. The open windows and ceiling fans were adequate to keep the rest of the condo tolerable–not pleasant but tolerable. (And we live in Florida, so it’s not like we aren’t used to heat and humidity.)
Unfortunately, the property is right next to a road and something about the acoustics of the valley exaggerates the sounds from the cars. There is a loud whooshing noise every time one passes by, which is frequent since this is a heavily traveled road. In the bedroom, the noise was barely noticeable with the windows closed, but in the rest of the condo, because the windows had to be open, the noise was a constant annoyance.
The solution to both issues would be the installation of a second AC unit in the living room. This would make the condo a truly great place to stay (and worth a few extra dollars to cover the cost of electricity for that 2nd AC unit). As it is, I wouldn’t call this place “heavenly” unless heaven is very noisy and a lot hotter than I’ve always imagined it would be.
My partner and I were here for a wedding and the unit location was perfect for that. Close to Kailua Town to organize flowers and catering but also within walking distance of the beach for relaxation. Access to the major highways was also very good for getting around Oahu. We appreciated the beach umbrella and chairs as we were not able to bring our own. The unit was very clean and we had no problems with anything. Overall very highly recommended.
