The spacious yard is lined with swaying palms, and sits along a tranquil private beach. The water is calm and shallow. Stand up boarding and kayaking are excellent here, and you may find yourself paddling alongside schools of fish, manta rays, sea turtles and even dolphins. To swim simply put on reef shoes and walk past the coral until you reach deep water. Fishing is great from the shallow coral area. In summer season you can surf here at the break known as "Secrets".

    We had a nice stay at the beach house. Pros- Gorgeous view of the ocean, large windows, comfy couches, indoor/outdoor living, nice master bedroom, zen-like decor. Cons-kitchen floors and chairs were dirty when we got there, shared bathroom outdated, noisy if you're a light sleeper since right on the highway, TV remote didn't work, no games, old stereo. Management was relatively good - Stephanie was as accommodating as possible. we asked management if we checkout later and we're willing to pay extra but were denied even though nobody else was checking in later that day. We were told the cleaning schedule was too busy and could not clean the next day instead. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation. Can't complain much about waking up to the view of the pcean.

    This is and old house with some upgrades. Very nice decor, comfy beds and couches, great for families.

    We arrived at the property at 3:20 and the cleaners were still there in the driveway packing up. We entered the home and the dining table and kitchen counter had a lot of crumbs and some food on it. There were cigarette butts in the front plants on the driveway and water bottles on the stone wall separating the property on the right. The iron gate in the backyard, that leads out to the beach is a major safety hazard as it is hanging on one hinge. The bottom is rusty and broken. The light bulb in the master bath is out and the toilet makes a horrendous sound after each flush. And probably the most disappointing is that the jacuzzi was at 87 degrees. (It took a few hours for it to heat up).
    I emailed the office when I got home on the above issues, her response was, "Thank you for your comments and I will pass this on to the cleaning department. As for the hot tub, the cleaners empty and clean it between bookings so it does take a while to heat up but we would rather have it cool upon your arrival verses dirty." Why not just set the temperature up when the cleaners leave at 3? Non apologetic, but thankful for my comments, and passing the buck off to the cleaners.

    Aleta S from Sands Point, NY recommends this vacation rental

    The place was beautiful. The flow was really nice and the space was very free and open. For a rental, it was pretty good. We felt happy and relaxed while we were there.
    However, the dish washer was not working. It turned on and you can hear water going through the dishes but it did not wash ANYTHING at all. We had to wash everything by hand. By second day, we bought paper plates and cups.
    The place also looks rather dated (but not a big factor, unless you're very particular). However, if I was the owner, I would probably update some stuff.

    We had one incident -- which was very unnerving.
    By seventh day into the stay, someone broke into the house while we were home. It was around 10:30pm, my kids were asleep (in the master bedroom with me). I was awake and sitting up in bed with the lights on. Most of the indoor lights were still on. My husband was at the gym (not home).
    Someone had gone through the sliding door (which was closed but not locked yet. We were still awake after all) from the beach and into the property and came into the master bedroom (WHILE I WAS THERE! AWAKE!).
    He was a very brazen thief! He ran away when I saw him and the cops didn't find him.
    All this to say: we were pretty shaken and angered that the motion lights outside (all over the house; front and back) were not working. I would have definitely noticed if the lights outside went on when he was there or it would have hindered him from coming in if the lights turned on.

    Apparently, he had come from another house. He had stolen an SLR camera from another rental nearby (and he left it on the backyard).

    All this to say: be forewarned. It's a nice place but petty theft is rampant in the area. Lock the doors EVEN when you're home and make sure all the lights work.

    And for the property management: might be best to put cameras in the area (pointing out -- not inside) so you can see if someone does break in again. I would.

    ronald w from castro valley, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Our family of 10 enjoyed staying in this house. The layout of the house was good for hanging out, cooking meals and just relaxing. The pictures were exactly was described. Location was excellent! I appreciated the rapid response of the management team when we asked for more dishes, utensils & towels (for 10 people) The air conditioning worked well in the main living space and master bedroom...but in the 2 smaller bedrooms did not get much air (thus the electric fans in the rooms). Loved stepping right onto the beach from the yard (a bit rocky with loose wear water shoes) We were on the beach everyday...using rented kayaks and paddle board. (equipment was rented & delivered by another company). It was a treat to have so many spots to hangout...the hammock, hot tub, lanai, beach & house! Be sure to download the app that is sent to you because it has the address of the house, code number and other helpful information. This app looks different on a laptop, iphone and ipad. We'ill be back again!

    This was a great get away location. the only item I was disappointed with was that the jacuzzi temperature was not warming up. Just remember to lock up, because a guy rode up on a bicycle to the property and was about to come in and saw us sitting in the livingroom. he said he was the house cleaner, but cleaners don't come on a bicycle in the poring rain with no equipment.

    a guest from San Diego, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This property worked well for 7 adults. The beachfront location was beautiful. It backs right up to the ocean. The front of the property is on a busy highway, but once we learned to maneuver in and out of the driveway, it was not a problem. The house is a little older and needs just a few repairs, but had everything we needed. We took full advantage of the jacuzzi each evening. The housekeeping staff does an excellent job, and the property managers responded very promptly when we needed them. The property is very conveniently located, 25 minutes to the airport and about 15 minutes into Waikiki. The best part, was waking up to the magnificent view each morning. I would recommend this house for anyone who wants a vacation with a true Hawaiian feel.

    Beautiful home--just as pictured! Plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 children. Well equipped. The yard with a fence was a great bonus with a 1 year old. Water showed evidence of the recent tropical storm as the water was not clear until the day we left and the beach was very rocky. Water shoes a must! House was tricky to find and on a very busy road. Was dark when we got there with no lights to help had some driveway issues. All in all-- Loved this place!

    This rental is in a great spot. Beautiful views and right on the beach. Ideal location. Away from the busy Waikiki area. Had some problems with the refrigerator. Want working when we arrived. By Sunday morning it was running at 65F. The brought another fridge a put it on the back porch. Which helped a lot. Kind of messed with the view. Dishwasher is extremely loud. Run it either at night or while out. We were worried about the noise from the highway, but that never was an issue. Really is a nice place, and would have a little more relaxing if we hadn't had the appliance problems.

    • Manager Responded on 7/13/2015

      We thank these guests for being so understanding when the fridge started having problems. There are just a few sub - zero repairman on island, so while we waited for the appointment a new fridge was provided. The kitchen fridge is now fixed. Mahalo - Hawaii Beach Homes

    a guest from Santa Cruz, CA recommends this vacation rental

    See below. Had a reservation, then they called me back and said it was no longer available. Very upsetting. Offered one we stayed in which was really nice and fit our needs just fine. Also not at all flexible on entry and exit times. Without the blood it would have been all five stars.

    • Manager Responded on 6/3/2015

      We are very sorry to see the poor rating for service. This client never had a reservation with us at a different property, she had simply requested a reservation at a different property. That home was not available, and neither was anything else in her budget. We worked to find her a house that would suit her needs, and were able to secure her a last minute discount at a home that was larger than the one she originally wanted, as well as oceanfront (the original home she requested was not). Both her check in and check out days were back to backs, meaning the cleaning staff had 4 hours between bookings to clean the house. We cannot allow early arrivals or late departures during back to backs, the cleaners need time to properly clean and prepare the home. Hawaii Beach Homes

    The property was well kept and the home was clean. The location was stunning and was great enjoying the outdoor facilities. We were 5 people and the living arrangements were sufficient. Wouldn't recommend a group larger than 6 as you will find the house quite cramped. Would have been good to have more normal sized glasses, especially wine glasses, but that's me nit-picking. Would stay here again.

Thank you very much for praising Bob, he is truly a valued team member :) The photos were taken in the last 2 years. We noticed you gave 2 for cleanliness. The furniture was recently steam cleaned and was recently deep cleaned after the holiday season as many of our homes do. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    We loved our little home. It was perfect for the 6 of us and the beach was truly a wonderful place to bob around in. On the downside, this house was not a place for 10 people as was advertised. I would not have appreciated crashing in the garage or in the living area. The mold in the bathroom shower was a problem and could have used some purex--no biggy. The front access was problematic until we put up a balloon--It's easy to pass the property. All in all we were grateful to have found the property for Xmas. Thank you.

The additional guests can sleep on the futons in the living room, most guests that book are families and don't mind their children using this space. If you read the previous reviews about this property almost all of our guests are satisfied with the location and beachfront access. We do include a GPS map that gives directions to this property.

    What a wonderful family vacation!! The location is fabulous!! Having our own private view of the ocean was spectacular. We were close enough to enjoy hiking Manoa Falls and Diamond Head and snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. Plenty of grocery stores nearby for us to secure what we needed to fix our own meals. (We actually went to Wal-Mart first which is half way between the airport and the property. Prices were similar to what we pay on the mainland. And there's a whole section of souvenirs as well as an entire aisle of macadamia nut goodies - much less expensive than the airport!) We only ate out one time. Cooking in saved us so much money. The house provides plenty of room for our party of four adults. The patio, back yard (love the hammock) and hot tub were enjoyed every day! Just keep in mind this is an older beach house in good condition for being almost 30 years old. It is on a busy street, but that's a very minor issue. Thank you, HBH for a great vacation location!

September can be a real odd time for temperatures as coming off a hurricane watch can really effect the overall humidity in Hawaii. Central A/C can be a luxury when all windows are shut and the system is given some time to regulate. We do realize that some homes are unfamiliar to new clients and do strive our best to make the transition easy. We are glad to hear that your group enjoyed the beachfront location as well as the ocean being right in your back yard :) We look forward to hosting you again in the future. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    Dennis J from Yale, OK recommends this vacation rental

    My wife and I spent a week touring Oahu for our 24th anniversary. We truly enjoyed all of the sights and activities of the island but at the end of it all, we both agreed that the South Shore 43 property was the highlight of the trip. It was everything we came to Hawaii to find, with it's private back yard to the ocean and the incredible views from the entire house.
    The staff contacted us several times to make sure we felt welcome and that we had everything that we needed. I could not recommend this place any higher. It is one of the best places we have every stayed.
    Thank you so much for making this vacation perfect.
    Dennis and Debby

    Donald W from Milpitas, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Being in a residential area was great. It was quiet and we generally had the beach to ourselves. The water is very shallow for hundreds of yards out. Very relaxing vacation. Kids had a great time.
    Echoing other guest's reviews: there is a lot of road noise at all times. But that is the only con to this place.

    • Manager Responded on 5/7/2014

      Aloha Donald, Thank you for taking the time to review South Shore 43. Road noise can be loud during high traffic times, and we can understand that.

    We had our family and our grand daughter who was jus 6 moths old and we all injoyed this beach House, We all felt like we were at home, tons of room for all of us which was 7 adults and one child. The baby rental iteams that wehad rented was all in place when we arrived which was 1st Class. The traffic noise on the North side of the house took a day or to to get use to. Probbley if you had more sound proof type of windows instead of the type you have now would help with the noise in those two bedrooms. But otherwise the place was great. Had a couple same maintance issues but we took care of it our selfs as yes it was like we were at home....Thank you

    Jennifer P from Oakland, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great stay in this beautiful beach home. As others reviewing it have noted, it is right on the highway, so getting in/out of the driveway takes some practice & patience. And it can be loud in the back bedrooms, though this really didn't bother anyone in our group. The kitchen & backyard grill are great--we were able to cook most of our food. I would say that the grill grates could use a good deep clean (the grill brush at the property is on the old side & didn't do much beyond move the grease around), but beyond that, we had no issues.

    • Manager Responded on 3/19/2014

      Aloha Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to review South Shore 43. The drive way can be somewhat tricky but as noted by other users you are able to wait for the light change so you can safely exit the driveway. The BBQ's are getting a lot of use during this time thank you for the cleaning heads up. We look forward to a future visit. Mahalo, Kai

    James D from Studio City, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We recently spent a week at this beautiful home to celebrate our mothers birthday. House is beautiful on an amazing BAY front. (not oceanfront)

    D├ęcor and furnishings are all top rate. Only concern I have that future guests should be aware of is that the water is not swimmable as it is only 3 feet deep, really only good for wading. The bottom is also very claylike and not sandy. The beach itself is also rocky. If that does not concern you then this is the perfect location as it is relaxing with stunning views.

    Only other concern is the driveway is directly connected to a VERY busy highway and could be problematic for older drivers who will ultimately miss the entrance or have problems entering and departing the home due to the small width of the driveway. The sound of the traffic is also quite loud for guests in the two extra bedrooms.

    Make sure you tell the property managers your arrival time as when we arrived after our contracted check in time, the maids were still cleaning which really hampered our move in experience since trash bags and laundry was all over the home. You really want a grand entrance experience when you first see this home.

    • Manager Responded on 3/7/2014

      Aloha James, A huge mahalo for sharing your recent South Shore 43 experience with us! Happy Birthday to you mom :-) We suggest to all of our guests to wait for the traffic light to change so it is easier to enter the highway lanes. I wish we could have perfect tenants all the time but sometimes cleaning can be challenging. In the rental agreement we do note that we have up until 6pm to properly clean the home upon arrival. We look forward to hosting your family for a future celebration! Mahalo, HBH Management

    House was overall great! A few minor things could be changed (carpet in spare room, lots of ants), otherwise there was adequate kitchen supplies, linens, hair dryers, etc that weren't mentioned on the listing. I would be great if the property owners would buy a kayak or a paddle board for tenant use, we would have utilized that for sure. For the most part we had a blast. Pictures are accurate depiction of property, could see whales from the property, and I would definitely go back!

    Compared to a 3 bedroom hotel booking this was ideal. We saved $ preparing our own meals, had lots of room to spread out, teenage boys in the spa day and night, not too far (with a hire car) from all attractions. Main road outside was not a problem as teenagers sleep through anything and parent's room was at the beach side of the house with no street noise.
    A great week.

    Had a great time. Location was and outside space was brilliant. The house overall was exactly what we were looking for. There were two things that would have made in trip perfect. There was no way we could cook as within 5 min. very small ants would appear in the kitchen . Additionally the furniture and the carpets need a good steam cleaning.

    We overall enjoyed our stay.

    Joan S from Tigard, OR recommends this vacation rental

    After 12 trips to Hawaii we have found the perfect spot. This lovely home is perfectly located on the beach between Koko Head and Diamond Head. Each morning we left the amazing view of our deck and walked straight on the beach for a walk. The house was well laid out, well cared for and comfortable. The house can accommodate up to "10", but I am glad we only had 7 adults. If there were 3 more, they had better be children willing to sleep on their parents bedroom floors on futon. Location wise, it is very convenient not more than 10 minutes from Costco, Safeway, Hanauma Bay, and my favorite restaurant, Roy's. Only issue, was that on the first try the entrance was a bit hard to find or navigate at the posted speed on the road out front. If you miss it, you have to go around one way streets a bit to get back. You only make that mistake once,then have a good laugh and slow down in time. We visit Hawaii often and have never stayed in the same place twice. I think that streak has come to an end. We will definitely hope this property is available for rental our next vacation.

    Location and house were amazing. From check in to check out the process was very simple. House had a great kitchen with all the supplies. Probably cooked more than we do at home which really cut down on the cost of the trip so we could spend the vacation $$$ in experiences. It was perfect to be away from the busy Waikiki area and choose to head over when we wanted. The shallow waters out front were perfect to float, or watch the surfers and not get plowed over by the big waves. Hope to come back in the future. Thanks for a great vacation.

    This house is very clean and organized. It had almost everything you would need to accommodate a group stay. The management company was very accommodating and helpful. The view from the patio was wonderful and relaxing. My massage therapist, Crystal was exceptional. A massage on this property was a dream come true.
    The washer needs service or replacement and it would be nice to have something in the entrance to help identify the driveway, since it is a sharp quick turn on a busy street. (We kept missing it and would have to turn around and come back several times before we became accustom to the quick turn.
    Other than those two things, it was a perfect stay. Thank you so much

    This is the third Vacation Rental I've rented from Hawaii Beach Homes. Compared to the Homes up in North Shore, this one lack a little touch.
    1) Jacuzzi wasn't clean when first entered. (however, management did get someone to clean it up immediately. Thank you)
    2) Toilet in Master Bedroom did not flush properly. Needs to be replaced.
    3) Kitchen tools weren't the greatest of quality, and could use a set of spices.

    These are just minor complaints that could have made the stay exceptional. It's still a beautiful house in beautiful Hawaii! So always recommended.

    Our family had an excellent stay at this property - Exactly as described and although along Kalanianaole HW, which makes for a couple of passes to find the drive way the first time, being situated right on the beach in South Shore is worth it. The house was well appointed, and provided everything that we needed for our stay. We rented some Kayaks from Hawaiian Water Sports, which made perfect use of the beach access. The kids had a blast searching for sea life in the shallow waters off the house. Wonderful stay. Watch out for the driveway exit as the second driveway causes rental cars to high center and scrape pretty badly that rendered that exit unusable.

    The view of the ocean is beautiful. Be aware that the water is too shallow for swimming and fairly stony. The hot tub was a lovely extra. The master bed faces the beach. The down side is that the other two rooms get a lot of traffic noise from the highway. We enjoyed our stay with 6 people but it would be a bit squeezy if you tried to have 10 stay.

    • Manager Responded on 3/26/2013

      The house is located directly oceanfront on Maunaloa Bay, which is not the best swimming beach but is a wonderful spot to try stand up paddling or kayaking, and in summer you are directly in front of the surf break "secrets". If you put on reef shoes and walk past the rocky area, the water does becomes deep and swimmable. Good beaches for swimming are close by: Sandy's beach, Hanauma Bay, Waimanalo and Waikiki, are within a 5 to 15 minute drive. Hawaii Beach Homes

    Perfect for our group of six with three good bedrooms and tonnes of well looked after living space. Everything was clean and well looked after and check in / out was easy. Only minor suggestions would be a quick update of some kitchen items (eg not enough wine glasses)and a booklet advising on local shops, bus timetables etc would have been helpful. Also phone not working. But all minor things compared to overall experience and would definately recommend. Outside area also great and safe for kids.

We are in the office seven days a week, and have an emergency line after hours, so a member of our staff is always available to assist. Our goal is to provide all of our guests with a wonderful home, and excellent customer service. We have added wine glasses to the house, and the phone is working. We now have a free app available for guests use, it provides a tremendous amount of information about the house, the neighborhood and the island. We are also happy to answer questions anytime, just give the office a call. Hawaii Beach Homes

    We were very happy with this vacation. The process was fantastic, and the pictures on the website were very accurate to reality of the property. We will certainly be back.

    We had an issue with the air conditioner on day one and it was fixed within 15 minutes of reporting it. We were very pleased with the property management company response and professional, reliable service.

    If you are considering a house at all in Honolulu, this spot is beautiful, RIGHT on the ocean, and perfect for families or couples. It is well laid out and conducive to socializing and entertaining.

    The highway out front is busy, but it is a small sacrifice for the convenience of getting around the island. You can't hear the highway when in the back at the ocean, and the way the property is laid out, this is where you spend all of your time anyway.

    You will not be disappointed with this property. It is beautiful.

    From the time we arrived at the house, everything just got better and better. The House, when you came in the front door, the view was of the beach and water, un-real. The house was perfect, few problems with the fridge, but no big deal. We were there for a Wedding and the rest of the family stayed next door, that was so perfect. The weather was wonderful. It was hard waking up every morning to the wonder view. The rental company could not do enough for us, Thanks Amanda and crew. If you ever make it to Hawaii and need a house to rent, you have to look no more. Wonderful just wonderful.

    The toilet in the master bathroom needs to be fixed. Everytime you flush you would have to open the tank and fix it. It was a pin in the butt. Also the stove does not work properly and there were no directions on how to operate it. Also the house was very clean, however there were still roaches. I have found that this is a problem no matter where you stay in Hawaii though. Also the hottub was awesome, but there were no instructions for up keep and within the last few days of our stay it really could have used some cleaning. Overall thought this place is great! Wish i could have just moved in and never left.

    • Manager Responded on 3/26/2013

    The property is beautifully located right on the water. It was very clean. However,the house keeping could use some quality control. When we arrived there was only 1 wash cloth for 5 people and it took 24 hrs to receive more. Extra blankets were folded

    It would have been nice to be made aware of this when we arrived.

    All in all a great place for a family to stay. However it is essential to have access a car to get around!!

    Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this remarkable beach home. The views are spectacular and we enjoyed both walking the beach just out the front gate and family meals with the front yard as a picture post card backdrop. The house was clean with plenty of towels and housekeeping supplies on hand. We notice near the end of our stay that the smoke detectors in the bedrooms were either missing batteries or missing altogether. The property management people said they would get that taken care of right away. Also a house number sign that faced on coming traffic rather than across the street would make it much easier to find the driveway. We missed it the first time we arrived.
    Our family agreed that we would love to return and enjoy the oceanfront experience again.

    Overall, an excellent experience.

    Called the last minute and Amanda was able to secure this property. She was great to work with.

    View is amazing from the beach facing side of the home. Upscale kitchen and master bath.

    I'll echo what some others have noted: house is difficult to locate (especially at night) and is located directly on "H1", which is a very busy six lane road. Difficult to get in and out of driveway; you must wait for the traffic light to turn before there is a break in the traffic.

    As others have said, light sleepers will not fare well in the front highway facing bedrooms due to traffic noise. Owner really needs to install double pane windows and sound proof at least the highway facing side of the home.

    Master bedroom current only has an old TV and needs to have full cable service like the flat panel in the living room. According to Amanda, a new flat panel HD TV will be installed in the near future. Newly installed hot tub in backyard was inoperative while I was there, but is supposed to be turned on November 1, 2010.

    Master bedroom and bath need better window coverings - currently neighbors can see through "transparent" shades, heavy drapes would be appreciated for the rear master bedroom window to block out the sun in the morning.

    What an amazing experience. You open the front door and the first thing you notice about the decor is the beach in the backyard. What a beautiful home. The ocean is beautiful, and even more spectacular floating 200 yards out on a boogie board. We are the last thing from morning people, but this place inspired us to wake up to the sunrise and enjoy the day. But if you like the place during the day, it's even nicer at night sitting on a lawn chair under the stars and the swaying palm trees. The location? Awesome. 15 minutes west is Waikiki, and 10 minutes east is Hanauma Bay. The place was spotless, the service was perfect, and it was the perfect place for us. What a great time we had.

    Overall our stay was pretty good. The fridge and AC did not work during our stay. They did send someone out pretty quick on both occasions. The location is almost immpossible to find on the first try, right of a highway and very difficult to see. We had some ant issues as well. The neighbors called and complained about noise, even though it wasnt loud. Was told by someone at Hawaii Beach Homes that under no circumstances were people who werent staying there are allowed to visit. Thought that was pretty ridiculous. The beach is very very small and the water is not kid friendly due to it being very rocky.

      We do have a strict 'no party' policy. The party held by this client one night prior to his friends wedding was not approved and did disturb the neighbors, so we had to put a stop to it.

    House has a great location right on the water, unfortunately, it is on a major street and getting into and out of the driveway was difficult. AC worked sporadically and we did not have much luck adjusting to a comfortable temperature. AC was either off or very cold. Wood floors need refinishing and backyard needs better upkeep.

    My family and parents stayed at this property. It was beautiful - right on the beach. The back yard had a spectacular view that faced onto the ocean and had a fence, which was perfect to keep my two small children from getting to the beach without an adult. The house itself had ample space for the six of us and the kitchen appeared to be recently renovated. We enjoyed our breakfast each morning on the lanai, watching surfers, fishermen, and boats. We were close to grocery stores, restaurants, and many of Oahu's tourist attractions. One thing has to be mentioned for future renters: We recommend that you bring ear plugs to wear when sleeping. There is a significant amount of traffic noise, but well worth the minor inconvenience to stay in this GREAT place!!

    a guest from Redmond, Wa does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Pros: The layout of the house was cozy and well decorated. The view from the backyard was great, even though it didn't allow direct access to the water. The A/C worked well. The location was centrally located to most activities.
    Cons: One of the window slats was out of place when we arrived, letting the A/C out. There was quite a bit of road noise from highway, and it was harrowing getting out of the driveway the first few times. The fridge still had some cooling problems, as some other reviewers have noted. One of the family room lamps was broken when we arrived. The hot water heater turned completey off the morning we left, so there were no hot showers and last-minute, clean-up laundry and dishes could not be done. The TV was ancient. Don't know if it's true w/ all houses on the water, but there were lots of little bugs that would creep out of one of the kitchen outlets if there were any hint of food left out, e.g. an empty soda can.

      We are constantly working to improve our homes, and feedback from guests is extremely helpful. All maintanance issues mentioned have now been fixed. We have all of our homes treated for tropical pests on a monthly basis, as here in the tropics we do have more insects than on the mainland. We ask that you keep all food in airtight containers or in the refrigerator, and dispose of all food scraps. Hawaii Beach Homes

    My staff and I stayed for 6 days and loved it. There was a problem with the air conditioning when we arrived but we called management and someone was sent over promptly to fix the problem. The house was beautiful and very convienient to all our activities. It was only a short drive to Waikiki and the convention center. The photos on the website were accurate and the view from the back proch was wonderful. It was delightful to sit on the back porch and enjoy the beautiful view. Thanks for a wonderful stay! Mahalo from Texas!

      The fridge has been fixed. The house is off the main coastal road, as are most oceanfront homes in Honolulu. Most guests do not notice noise once they check in and open the windows to the ocean side, but if you are very sensitive about noise a house in the country is the best bet. Please call our office for recommendations. Hawaii Beach Homes

    Ellen V from Cambridge, Mass recommends this vacation rental

    We were very pleased with our stay in South Shore 43. It was a comfortable house and a great location. The view was fabulous, the yard and house were terrific. The only downside was the actual beach. It was a water sports paradise but not the nicest beach for playing or swimming. We enjoyed watching the surfers, wind surfers and board paddlers.
    There were a few things missing in the house but the management company took care of them right away.
    Also, the street is incredibly busy, but once you are in the house you mostly do not notice.
    All in all we really enjoyed this property and found it perfectly located to all the wedding events that we were in Honolulu to attend!

      The beaches along the south shore are not as tropical as those on the north shore. There is an outerlying reef that keeps the water shallow along this stretch of coast. Many guests like this if they have smaller children as the kids can play along and in the water without being stuck by waves. There is also a nice stretch of beach for walking. The image in the photo of the house shows the beach accurately. If you are looking for beaches with waves, the North Shore is much better or you can drive the very short distance from this house to Waikiki where you can find surfing beaches nearby.
