This was a fantastic location! Town is wonderful and the private beach was exceptional… No better views!
This is a beautiful and spacious property convenient to beaches and town. We were all very comfortable in this home. The bedrooms are spacious and well appointed. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, dishes and appliances. The house was very clean when we arrived. There was even a decorated Christmas tree! The location is superb with a small private beach a short walk from the driveway. The hot tub was a popular spot. Everywhere had a gorgeous view of 2 islands. I very highly recommend this property for a family vacation. You will be very comfortable.
Awesome property, well equipped, easy people to work with
Our family of three generations loved the beautiful unblock ocean views, the privacy, and the easy access to beach that this unique property offered. Wake up and jump right in your kayaks or watch the sunrise right from the beautiful and well appointed kitchen. The color of the sea is whimsical and changes throughout the day. What better vacation in Hawaii can one hope for.
Gina was very responsive and resourceful. She pulled off everything from kayak rental and delivery to arranging private chefs and massage therapies all last minute.
This house was booked for a family reunion with age range from 5 to 75.
I believe when I was reading the reviews someone likened it to living like the rich and famous. They honestly don’t know how accurate they are. We talked with and listened to stories from the locals. This house has some history. From the time I booked this house the owner was receptive and quick to respond to questions. We booked a private chef (Andres Bravo) one night and to have it prepared at the house with unbelievable views was an incredible memory. The homeowner helped us with kayak rentals, we snorkeled right outside the house which turned out to be swimming with the turtles, and the kids had impromptu soccer games in the backyard.
Hot tubs, ocean breezes and swimming were at our finger tips. What you see online honestly does not do it justice. The house and whole experience will be something dreams are made of.
Honestly, when I booked this property, I was skeptical that the photos had been touched up. I was wrong. The property and surrounding scenery was exactly how it is pictured and absolutely amazing.
Stayed here with extended family for 5 nights in June. 5 Bedrooms on the top floor and one bedroom in the cottage. The cottage itself is amazing with kitchen, living room, and lanai. The first floor of the main building has a spacious living room, welcome counter, kitchen, dining area, laundry etc. The back has an open seating area, bar, bbq grill which open up to a spacious garden. Private beach shared by a couple of houses within the gates is about 100 meters away. The house is furnished with everything you need from kitchen appliances to beach towels and equipment. Our favorite feature was the half open dining area between the kitchen and garden. Breakfast in the mornings and BBQs at sunset with the whole family were amazing.
Gina was absolutely great. Very fast responses and accommodating/helpful before our trip. During the trip as well. For example, we wanted an ironing board and one was brought over the next day.
Would definitely stay here again.
This villa in Kailua wowed our entire party the moment we arrived. From the sweeping vistas across to the Mokulua islands featuring turquoise waters to the charming villa itself with a tropical-island vibe, this property was all we could ask for. Nearly every bedroom in the house has views towards the ocean, and brings in a tropical breeze coming from the east side of the island. The kitchen and outdoor dining area was perfect for large group dinners, with views over the enormous back yard complete with palm trees and night lighting. The location of the house its very convenient for accessing some of the very popular beaches in the area, and is also conveniently close to Whole Foods, Target, etc and numerous local restaurants and eateries.
Will definitely be returning!
This is, as described in its posting, a gorgeous villa. The house and guest cottage are at the end of a gated compound. When each of our adult children and their spouses arrived and looked around, each one's response was that it was even better than the pictures. The bedrooms have magnificent views and almost all have direct access to balconies looking out on the ocean. While sitting in the living room, we watched through the panoramic window, as green sea turtles poked heads out of the water on three different days. The kitchen is well outfitted. The completely sheltered but open to the fresh air dining room comfortably sat our 11 family members. There are smaller breakfast rooms and a kitchen counter. The villa has many distinct spaces, including the private balconies, so we had both excellent group spaces for talking and playing games together (living room and veranda), but also separate smaller indoor and outdoor quiet spots for an individual to read or just chill. In addition, the guest "cottage" is a beautiful living space with its own hot tub, (there are two hot tubs on the property), balcony, additional kitchen (we didn't use this one except for AM coffee), etc. The compound has a small sandy beach which is well supplied with chairs, etc. During our stay there was one other family and our group at this beach. It is also only a five-ten minute walk, three minute bicycle ride, to the magnificent Lanikai beach and its remarkably soft sand. The town of Kailua is a five-ten minute drive and has a full range of services including Shop Rite and Whole Foods for groceries.
During our stay the owner of the property, Gina, and her sister, Christie, were very helpful and responsive. We did have a weather event on the last night of our stay with torrential rain combined with a very powerful north wind which was unusual. Sitting watching lightening over the ocean in the covered dining area was quite beautiful. However the unusually powerful winds caused a power outage for the area. There were storm lanterns in the villas so lighting was not a problem, but a couple of windows upstairs developed leaks, and water came in through the bottom of the closed front door. (The north wind whipped water against this side of the house.) Gina's family, while dealing with flooding in their own place, were concerned for us and responsive to our questions, and in the AM maintenance came to identify the sources of leakage for repair. A small event in a villa paradise.
Each room outstanding, and the Cottage was secluded. Wonderful private location. Water sport items (canoes, stand-up paddle boards, snorkel) delivered to the lawn by the beach.
6 couples stayed here; all very happy!
This location is as close as it gets to paradise. The house and layout is great for anyone who wants to enjoy luxury.
We celebrated my wife’s 50th birthday and stayed with 14 guests.
The house has great view bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms, a great kitchen and enough entertainment space to have a celebration.
This is Hawaii at its best !
