This was the perfect home for my family to spend Thanksgiving; it felt like our home in paradise! The rooms were were the perfect size, clean and comfortable, very close to our favorite attraction, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. I loved the outdoor jacuzzi and that beach right in the backyard. The kids were able to play in the water and go pretty far out as it was no more than 2 feet deep. The only issue we experienced was the patio door getting stuck. Someone came out first thing the next day to fix for us. Great service, perfect home for family or a group of friends. I highly recommend!!

It was located on a very busy Highway, such a pain to back out! Other than that the house itself was spacious and open. The knives were not at all sharp and the bbq was not working at the time. We informed the company and they gladly replaced it for us. Service was very good. One last thing to mention was that the water bill was not paid. The water was shut off for half a day! You'd think they'd be better organized...

My family of three, my mom and dad, and my two in laws, all stayed here. The house was nice. Beds were comfy. A/C was nice when needed. We enjoyed being able to meet up in the living room or kitchen, then retreat to other areas if needed. We played ping pong and snorkeled. Enjoyed sunrise from hot tub. It is Hawaii. We weren't concerned about the issues others had mentioned. Yes the highway cars were a little noticeable. Yes the ice machine broke and the part was on order, but all and all very relaxing and we would recommend it.

There was a group of 8 of us and we had the most amazing week. The house is beautiful, clean and the view from the deck in the morning at sunrise was breathtaking. We utilized the Jacuzzi event single night and watched the stars. We will definitely stay here again.

This was a fabulous house big enough for a few families to stay in together without tripping over each other, the location is good if you have a car, parking was interesting beacuse we are on a main street. relaxing and comforatable. might need new lawn chairs they seemed to be older and rotting, the hottub was heaven.

We went to Hawaii to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. We booked South Shore Waterfront for 5 days and had 6 of our friends stay with us. We had a fantastic time. The location was excellent, right on the beach (but it would have been easier to have a car). The weather was not good, but because we were all together and had everything we needed in the house it was not a problem. Would highly recommend this house for a group travelling together.

We Came to Hawaii to celebrate our daughters graduation at uh and to enjoy a family vacation. Busy street coming onto the property, but once you open the front door, wow, what a view! Every room from the family room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms have amazing views looking out to the ocean. kayaking, paddle boarding,windsurfing and surfing are directly in front of the house. You will also see fishermen in their gear standing in the water catching fish. After a long day of activities, the spa was relaxing and on the beach with a beautiful view of Koko head.The Pool table was a big hit,the ping pong table was not usable and heard it will be fixed for the next renters. Everything in the house was clean, air conditioned with fans, plenty of towels and bedding.
Problems: The windows need to be replace, the noise from the hwy is so loud it was hard to sleep.Keeping the TV on helped. Constantly washing dishes,not enough for 6 people. needs more pots and pans. The electric stove was very touchy, heat sensitivity,and hard to clean. When the handy man put dish washing detergent on the stove, it did turn somewhat white again, but, when we started to cook, it started to turn a darker brown and was harder to get white again. They never fixed the problem with the curtains that never closed in two of the bedrooms, but hey, this is Hawaii and the view was gorgeous to wake up too.I would recommend this home for families with older children, because of the busy hwy and the spa. Enjoy, Mahalo

We picked this location blindly but it ended up being a perfect location for us. The wedding we were attending just happened to be two homes down the beach at Kathy Irelands place. We were able to walk to and from the wedding less than 100 yards. The waterfront property has gorgeous views and great amenities. The house is clean and well kept. We utilized the hot tub, grill, and game room downstairs. Only gripe would be the access to the driveway/garage. You pull in and out of very busy street. However, this was completely manageable during our stay.

Nice house but needs some more work to bring it up to the standards I expect for the price. The kitchen is lacking. The dishes, silver wear, pans and glasswear are cheap mismatched and inadequate for a house of this size. The bed linens and towels are of the lowest possible quality. The inside of the house is clean, the outside is not. The lower level with the pool table is filthy. The house is on a very busy street and the water is shallow and stagnent. Not suitable for swimming. I love Hawaii but I am no longer willing to pay premium prices for low quality rentals Read more
We are so sorry that the client feels this way, and are taking all of these constructive comments seriously. The cleaning company has been made aware and will be paying special attention to the outside areas, and we are in the process of updating the kitchen goods and linens. A note about the location: like almost all oceanfront homes in Honolulu, the house is located off a main coastal road.
As for the water it is definitely swimmable and clean, the clients were unfortunately here after an uncommonly bad storm that affected the beaches everywhere; usually the water is calm and shallow for a hundred feet or so, then it becomes deep and great for swimming. This very calm beach is wonderful if you have kids or like to kayak and stand up paddle. Once you get out to the deeper area there is a surf break called "Secrets".
**UPDATE** We have now hired a new landscaping crew, the outdoor area looks beautiful

When you walk through the front door be prepared to be impressed with the house and blown away by the view and location right on your own beach. We were 3 couples travelling to Oahu and Maui and wanted to stay in homes rather than hotels and found this property on the internet. The process for booking and checking in went very smoothly and there were no problems. When we checked in there were a few articles missing and property management provided them right away. The home was neat and tidy however could have been a little cleaner particularly given the cleaning fees you pay. I suspect the management company would have been disappointed with the quality of cleaning and have likely dealt with it. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms are all large and are oceanfront - there was not a bad bedroom in the unit. The kitchen is equipped reasonably well although there were not a lot of dishes or glasses which I believe has now been rectified. No doubt the shortage is created from guest breakage. It is a lovely home with a beautiful beachfront location. Prior to going I read some reviews on the property that spoke about the proximity of the road and road noise. It is true that it sits on a 4 lane road however we were not bothered by noise at all and found the location convenient to restaurants, shopping and Waikiki beach.

My husband and I along with 3 other couples rented this home for 6 days. It was our 3rd visit but first outside of a Waikiki Beachside hotel. We enjoyed every aspect of it and have no complaints. It was plenty roomy for everyone and had lanais out of every room. It is located in a very nice area although not walking distance to anything. We used the local cab service to get around and they were great and prompt. There is a busy road on the front side of the house-although we were not bothered by this in the least. This property had everything we needed, lots of kitchen wares, beach towels, bathrooms towels, cleaning supplies, laundry soap, dish soap, toilet paper, paper towels etc. We spent many hours relaxing, watching for whales and enjoying cocktails in the oceanside hot tub. Renting a property is great way to spend your vacation and we will continue to do so year after year! Hawaii is the most beautiful and magical place on earth and I cannot keep talking about our experience and am already excited to go back in 2012.
