* Banyan Tree - Beachfront

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 12, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

Honolulu, HI 96821 United States

Drive down the driveway, past an enormous banyan tree, to this large home. This classic Hawaiian home, with its original lava rock wall entrance, is a truly one-of-a-kind oceanfront property. It has been remodeled, while maintaining its original Hawaiian charm. The open style of this Hawaiian property has ideal vacation home conveniences, such as a completely renovated ocean view kitchen with 2 refrigerators, an ocean view master bath, a living room with doors that open to the ocean where you can sit steps away from the sand and water. The many spacious bedrooms in this house allow groups to stay together while affording ample private space. The home spans the entire ocean front portion of the lot.

This home also has access to a large (shared) gated pool area. The water in front of the home is shallow and calm, which is good for children. Surfing is possible during the summer months in front of the home if you walk out past the reef where it gets deeper. Amazing snorkeling is just a few minutes up the road at world famous Hanauma Bay.

    a guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this vacation rental

    My family stayed at this house for 5 nights with 6 children ages 2-11 during May. I also rented the house next door since I was getting married that week and had 20+ family members fly in. Let me also note that my family needs infrastructure: cars, air conditioning, kitchen etc. This house was PERFECT. Incredibly large space (even with toddlers running around), great view and the pool is great too. The pool is shared with two other houses within this gated community (this house is 1 of 3) but you really never notice people so much. This house really made a difference in my family vacation. Thank you Hawaii Beach homes for your warm support throughout the booking process and the stay!

    The Banyan Tree is perfect for a big group, plenty of beds, lots of light, and a nice big kitchen. The beach is also right outside the backyard which makes for a really lovely view. Our group enjoyed the pool table, pool, and hot tub that was on the property.

    JU H does not recommend this vacation rental.

    I just want to describe what I was not satisfied with.

    1) For the check-in
    Two weeks before the check-in, I contacted with the service for the check-in details by myself. It took a lot of time to getting all the details down.

    2) Unpredictable 150 dollars charge

    After I checked-out the property , It had been 7 days. My account was charged another 150 dollars. I called and sent email asking the information. The service just told me undercharged my tax. I replied for more information. But no any word received by now!!!

    • Manager Responded on 2/7/2017

      We send out move in instructions 30 days prior to check in. Guests are able to download our free app or a pdf version. After this we follow up with two emails reminding guests to make sure they have downloaded, printed, and understand the move in instructions. About one week prior to check in we make a final attempt to contact guests who have not downloaded the app, and remind them to make sure they have all instructions. Sometimes guests ignore these emails, but we certainly do all we can to provide guests with move in instructions prior to their check in. The additional charges mentioned by this reviewer are due to the fact the guest booked thru Airbnb. All guests who book thru Airbnb are charged for taxes separately, outside of the Airbnb system, as the Airbnb platform does not currently allow us to correctly charge TAT and GET. We explain this within each of our listings on Airbnb, then prior to accepting an Airbnb booking we ask the potential guest to confirm they understand and agree to pay the tax. These guests were aware of, and agreed to, all charges. The charges were simply made separately, instead of all at once, which seems to have caused confusion. There was also a bit of a language barrier between our office staff and these guests. We are very sorry the guests feel unsatisfied by our service, and will continue our dialogue with them until all of their questions are answered to their satisfaction.

    Great location. The unit itself needs a lot of work. Kitchen not equipped well enough for 12 guests. Kitchen cabinets and drawers very bad shape. White couch smells horrible. My wife and I would not sit on it. All screen doors were broken so we couldn't keep out some additional house guests....Rats...They ate our bread. Breakers kept tripping and power would shut off. TV's (Some need updating) Thanks for the replacement TV though. We actually left on Sunday night so we could sleep in our own house. This unit could be very nice. Owner should put some money into it.

    Kathryn F recommends this vacation rental

    Magnificent location! Had my 50th there with 16 family and friends and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Needs some attention eg pool table felt top ripped, some stains on sheets, one sofa in main lounge badly sagging in middle, toilet system required attention on day 4 (assistance arrived immediately after call to concierge on a Sat evening). Minor details that would make a difference. I do feel the property has been photographed so well your expectations are very high and on arrival first impression is a little disappointing. In saying that the Cabana's were far more impressive than originally thought. Very happy with overall experience, attention from caretaker and Hawaiian Beach Homes professionalism to deal with.

    Stephanie B from Oakland, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Our family of 23 persons came together to spend time on the island and rented the entire estate (total of 4 bldgs.). The location is as described and was beautiful. The family had a great time being together.
    The property looked wonderful upon driving up, we did arrive early to make sure that we were able to find the place and so that our entire party could meet in a central location, and were told immediately that we could not be on the premises until 3 (fair enough). We came back shortly after 3:00 and the cleaning crew was still on site.
    The accomodations looked great, however as we settled in we discovered many items (furniture (broke when sat on) appliances dishwaser, coffee maker was not working), AC in The Cabana stopped working, ceiling fan not working, bathrooms (molded with leaking sink and toilet connections), screen doors in the main house did not slide or close properly, and outdoor lighting and indoor lighting fixtures did not work well or did not work at all. Tiles around the pool were also loose). The property is actually a nice place and in a great location, but would be even better with some TLC and repairs.
    Upon entering the homes, yes they could have been cleaned much better, but in fairness, my family cleans to military, clean room, and operating room standards.
    The girls that I dealt with when booking and obtaining information (Lani and Zoie) were very helpful, informative and polite. They were wonderful to work with. We were set back a bit with personnel coming on to the premises and entering buildings without announcing themselves or notice. Would we rent through Hawaii Beach Homes again...most likely, because we do understand that the homes are rentals, but we would like to see that better maintenance and upkeep are provided based on the cost to rent, without a doubt. Would I recommend this particular property to friends, maybe with a caviat.

    My experience in this house could not have been better. Yes there were a few small things (the water right outside is very shallow and not really swimmable, the pool table is old and hard to play on etc.), but overall, this place was a paradise. It fit our large group perfectly, and was an amazing home base to explore the island. In fact, the house was so amazing, that many days we opted to just hang at the house, swim in the pool, and lounge in the back yard. This is a really special property, and one that all of us thoroughly enjoyed. One of the best rental houses I have ever stayed in. Miss it already!

    Nancy Beth G from Sunnyvale, California recommends this vacation rental

    This review is for the Banyan Tree house ONLY. We also had the other places at the estate. The size was great, the bedroom ACs worked well, plenty of towels and a well stocked kitchen. The teens enjoyed the pool table a great deal. We loved the hot tub and pool. Views of the water were amazing, and we could see lots of stars at night. On the other hand: the common rooms of the house were very warm and would not cool down because there is little to no cross ventilation. The screen doors were broken and therefore a constant misery to go in and out of. The overall condition of the home is somewhat run down which is not evidenced in the photos. We had two plumbing problems. They were handled efficiently and courteously. Loved the snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. If you get there early, it is free! Had an amazing brunch at Moena cafe. This is a great place to stay for the Honolulu marathon, as it is right on the course route and your party can come out and cheer for you! Great tattoo parlor: Hapsflow in Honolulu.

    Firstly, I would like to start by saying i'm versed in renting outstanding properties & this was definitely on my top list. Location, amenities, and layout of the house was more than we could've asked for. Every room has it's own a/c with the exception of the living room. The backyard is literally your ocean and the waves crash 1 mile off shore so this place is a perfect for those uncomfortable with the water. I would highly recommend this property & I can't wait to go back. Thanks again for everything!

    This was the perfect rental for a large group. We rented the entire estate which easily and comfortably housed 22 of our family for this special event. The estate was as described with each home providing privacy and individual living areas while having large areas in the Banyan Tree for everyone gathering together. The beachfront area was perfect for relaxing, grilling and eating outside. The children built sand castles, swam, and paddle boarded while the adults enjoyed the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The pool and spa provided additional enjoyment. The banyan tree was pretty impressive too. The homes were comfortable, clean and well provisioned. Additionally, the management was friendly, helpful and prompt in their responses to our questions and requests prior to arrival, on arrival and during the stay. Great location. Definitely the place to stay when in Honolulu.

    We rented all 4 property's on the Estate as there was 19 in our group of family and friends and it worked perfectly for us. We had young children and teenagers. Fantastic location, right onto the beach and shallow enough for the young children to play in the water by themselves (supervised from the beach). It allowed everyone to spend time together but still have our own space. The pool was enjoyed by everyone. Friendly neighbors (who also share the pool) showed some of our children how to open a coconut and and let them help with the lighting and releasing the lanterns on the 4th July. The location is great. We all hired cars and there was plenty of room for 5 cars. The only major improvement we would recommend would be to put air conditioning in the lounge as it was extremely hot even with the fans all going

    a guest from Minneapolis, MN recommends this vacation rental

    Great house for a large group! Management company was very responsive to questions. We only rented the main house but at no time during our stay did we encounter the guests from the other cottages - we definitely had our privacy. Don't be concerned if there are others on the property (if you're only renting the main house).

    Only item of concern was that although there are 3 operational bathrooms and showers, only one of the showers is really adequate/comfortable for use. The majority of our party (5 out of 7) only used one of the 3 showers during our stay because of this.

    • Manager Responded on 3/23/2015

      Hi Darcy, We appreciate all your time spent filling out this review. We hope you enjoyed your Spring Break! All bathrooms as well as the showers are operational at this property.

We look forward to your next visit to Oahu and we are happy to read that you enjoyed your first time at a beach house :) Aloha, Hawaii Beach Homes

    We loved staying at the Banyan Beach Estate. The location and space was exactly what we need. However, the main room in the Banyan House was extremely warm. Also, we found it hard to secure the Banyan house with the old windows and a few of the people in our party notice some cash missing from their wallets (although, we are not certain the money was stolen from the home). For a large party, this is a very affordable and convenient location with a great view.

    We had a wonderful week in Hawaii! It's a good thing that we rented the Cabana along with the Banyon Tree because 12 people would have difficulty with only three bathrooms. Cooking supplies, plates, and bowls were plentiful. Well supplied with quality bath towels and beach towels. One bedroom had no dresser, one bedroom had no place to hang clothes - living out of a suitcase is not fun! It was difficult to get out of the drive and onto the street - traffic was almost constant. Short 1/2 hour drive from the airport made it convenient

    We had a wonderful Christmas Vacation at the house. The amazing view of the water was so nice to wake up to each morning. The water is shallow for a long way out so perfect for kids to play in. Nice neighbours in this area, spoke with many of them as they walked along the beach. House is older, but is huge! and accommodated our whole family, it is not perfectly clean, but not bad, liveable. We had the opportunity to meet the owner of the home on vacation as he was with his family in Hawaii for the holidays...very nice people. Management of the property were very helpful and available via phone when needed...which was only once for the hot tub breaker reset. Anyway, I totally recommend this house....we noticed that most homes in Hawaii are older, this is one of the larger homes so large families can stay comfortably in this area. Costco and Safeway are close to this home as well....very handy! Loved Hawaii!! .....the temperature change was an increase in 50 Celsius for us ...literally :) If you are planning a wedding, family reunion or anything that requires more room check with the Hawaii beach homes staff as this house has a pool house and cabanas in the back yard that can be rented out as well. We didn't know that there was additional availability on this property so ended up rented a condo for other family members that was not close to the house.
    Enjoy your stay!!! We did :)

    The size of the home was great. We had 12 people in our party, and we had plenty of room. The appliances were outdated, and in need of replacement. A good interior paint job is required, as well as the main bathroom needed a complete overhaul. The washer and dryer needed updating, and as well there should be an extra dryer. They should be enclosed. Overall the home met our needs, and our family had a great Hawaiian experience.

    Loved it. There very a few small issues that the management team solved immediately. Central area got very hot mid afternoon but just for a few hours. The house has a lot more rooms then we thought. Everyone loved the cottages. Perfect for a large group like us. Kitchen fully stocked with utensils. Beds were all great. Beach was very calm and perfect for all our young children. Only ongoing problem was a rude young teenage relative of the owner who kept bringing friends to swim and jump off one of the cottages into the pool. Again the management team tried to control the situation. I'd stay here again.

    a guest from FPO, CA recommends this vacation rental

    My information is intended to be helpful, not petty. The house was perfect for 6 adults and 4 kids, ages 2 to 6. The house layout is great, very spacious, location is great (20 min from Sea Life Park and Waikiki; 50 min to N. Shore), backyard is very nice (especially when you have young kids that want to run around), many towels are provided, and AC window units in every bedroom was been key for comfort when sleeping. Common area (kitchen, dining, and living area) does not have AC. Even with open windows, it was pretty warm in there, so we would just go in backyard (but there is a 9 PM curfew for going back inside house since home is in a neighborhood and you can't disturb neighbors.) However, the home is in need of a little maintenance: sliding screen doors are flimsy and come off tracks easily, windows in room with pool table cannot be opened), dining chairs are canvas director chairs and they are not very sturdy. Management Co was contacted and they sent someone immediately to fix the screen doors and other small issues we had, but the doors are too flimsy and came off the tracks again. Lots of sunlight at 5:30 AM sunrise in the bedrooms (darker or thicker curtains would be nice.) Beach behind house is narrow, about 5-10 feet for walking or laying out. No waves and very shallow (about mid-calf) until you walk out much further (prob 1/8 mile.) Pool was nice, but has a 7 PM curfew (so as to not disturb neighbors.)

    Kitchen was absolutely filthy! We had to clean for 2 hours before we could even use it. Cabinets and handles were sticky and covered with food and grease. Sink was disgusting. Walls were covered with food splatters and blsck dust.Light fixtures over the island area were thick with dust and cobwebs. Chairs were dirty. Kitchen was not well stocked-no potholders, no kitchen towels, no plastic containers for food, no casserole dishes and only 3 wine glasses.Guests are expected to clean prior to leaving but there are NO cleaning supplies (cleanser, rags).
    Ceiling fans in the bedrooms were so dusty we had to clean them before we could turn them on.
    The white towels are all dingy and gross looking-they need to be bleached.
    The property manager who was there when we arrived was not very friendly and made us feel as though we couldn't even sit outside and talk after 9:00.
    Some of the lawn furniture was broken and there were insufficient tables & chairs for a large house.

    The "great room" is a wonderful place for a large family/group to gather. Ample space, plenty of chairs, and a great view.

    The laundry area could be greatly improved if the old, disconnected washer were removed, and the washer & dryer placed next to each other. Also, a larger overhang would help in case of rain.
    Many mugs and plates were badly chipped/cracked.
    My family of 18 occupied two cottages, as well,and two rolls of paper towels in the kitchen for a week was not enough.

    Our family of 16 stayed at this property for a week in early May. From my 85 year old father down to my 4 month old granddaughter, everyone enjoyed their stay. We used the main house as our meeting place each morning. Everyone would bring their coffee and we would enjoy the sunrise and plan our day. We loved the kitchen and made most of our breakfasts and dinners at the house. It's hard to beat an oceanfront view. Costco and Foodland right down the street was awesome. I have 2 suggestions. The main part of the house is extremely warm during the afternoon/evening. Made it difficult to cook and eat in the dining room. Possibly additional stand-up A/C units would handle that. Our other suggestion would be to upgrade the quality of the bed linens and pillows in the main house. The cottages didn't seem to have the same issues. Overall, we loved our stay at the Banyan Tree and would encourage any and all to stay here! We thank you for a week of lifetime memories for our family!

    Maryann D from Concord, CA recommends this vacation rental

    I would love to give this property a huge "thumbs up!", but I just can't. This property is in a perfect location. I could not have been happier with the ease of getting to and from the house. The layout of the house is perfect for large groups. If everything in the house is geared toward large family/group usage, why are there only 4 coffee cups? Why is there only one recycling can that gets picked up only once a week? There are at least 4 residences on the property. Why does the patron, who has spent a large amount of money to rent this house have to provide virtually everything in the house to make it habitable? We had to buy coffee cups...we had to buy everything. If we had been spending only several days would have been outrageously expensive to stay there. I don't feel the owner has invested in the upkeep of the house in ages. I could not find any dish towels and had to use napkins. Honestly, after spending $15,000 for the rental, I did expect a higher standard of care from the owner. I also think it should be clearer that there is no possibility of swimming in the water right in front of the house. We walked out to the breakers and the water never got above our knees and was completely covered in rocks and coral. This was not all together a negative thing. We had 3 young children and never had to worry about them and the water, but I think the description should be more accurate. Before renting the house, I read a review by a man who said all the same things...I thought he was being extraordinarily picky and chose to ignore his review...he actually was right on the mark. But...even with all the above remarks, as a family, we had a wonderful time and loved our time in Oahu. We wouldn't trade our time there for anything. Thank you!

    • Manager Responded on 2/19/2013

      Thank you for the review. After receiving it we did an inventory, and restocked some kitchen supplies. When large groups rent the entire estate things such as coffee cups quickly dissappear, some to other homes, some are left by the pool, etc. But if this is not the case and you feel the home is missing anything, simply call our office and we will fix the situation. The water in front of the home is very shallow and calm for a few hundred yards, which is ideal if you have small children. If you put on reef shoes and walk past the rocky area, the water becomes deep and swimmable. This area is also great for kayaking and stand up paddling. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    saran wrap, garbage bags, etc, (there werent even things like tupperware for leftovers) all kitchen basics that should already be there, especially for a house that cost almost $5000.00 for under a week. Cigarette butts were everywhere, even crammed into the
    stones on the front of the house. We went out to use the bar-b-cue, and after a grease fire finally died out, started to grill our New Yorks only to have the propane run out. There was another tank, but it too was empty. It was annoying to have to turn the
    oven on in an already 90 degree house. It would also have been nice to have comfortable places for everyone to sit, the living room is large enough for more couches and chairs, and they should be there, not a bunch of table chairs. Being that this was a "family"
    oriented house, it would have been nice for the kids to have some toys, not to mention games and cards for the adults. On the positive, the beach is fantastic, the beds are firm and comfortable, there are plenty of beach towels, the washer and dryer was a
    huge plus, the two wonderful refrigerators (though they barely make ice, add that to your LONG shopping list of stuff you shouldnt have to buy) and the pool is AWESOME for cooling off (if the occupants of other cottages are occupying it). We plan to return
    next year, but probably to a different house.

      Thank you for the review. We are sorry that the home wasn't as well stocked as you would have liked. We do provide all guests with a starter kit that includes paper towels, a new sponge, and 3 rolls of t.p. in every bathroom. If these run out, it is up to the guest to replace their own paper goods. There are garbage bags under the sink, and we have heeded your suggestion and purchased additional tupperware for the kitchen. If propane runs out please call the office, we are just down the street and will bring you a new tank immediately. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    We stayed at the Banyan Tree for 5 nights. Although our stay was short one, all of us loved the vacation rental property. The location was good for shopping, driving, and swimming. The house and whole furniture produced good old Hawaiian taste. The scenery
    around the house was beautiful and calm. We enjoyed the birds singing and felt peaceful moment at the beach in front of the house. We had been very comfortable as if we live in our own home and experienced more we expected during our stay. We thank all of
    the company members for their great help.

    My comments are for the property manager only. I would not "currently" recommend this property to a friend due to two of the bathrooms are in deseprate need of updating. Once this has been completed the property is truly an outstanding place to spend a vacation. One other comment is that we could not locate the "house binder. Thank for asking for our comments we appreciate your interest in what we have to say. We also appreciate the size of the home as the space was needed and used by our family. Gayle Floyd

    a guest from Buena Park, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Great location, but getting in/out of the property is tricky as it's on a busy highway. Beach isn't really a swimming or wading beach, very muddy, makes for nice tidepools in low tide. But lots of rocks and mud, luckily Haunauma Bay is close and Kailua is about a 45 min drive. Could be termites in one room and bathroom, surprised cleaners didn't notice buildup of dirt. Large sliding windows came off hinges when we unlatched to open up windows for a breeze-when we mentioned to mgmt co., they just asked if we wanted someone to come fix it, but I just wanted to make sure they knew we hadn't broken them. Overall nice house, though, better to rent whole property for big group like ours so you don't have to share pool (though neighbors used it and weren't supposed to since we rented the whole property). Jacuzzi's were fun! One note, though-we were taking red-eye out and asked about late check-out. Mgmt co told me to call day before check-out, but when I did they said cleaners had already been scheduled to come clean. I felt like I had been strung along, couldn't cleaners have been told to come later if I had been asking for a late check-out? Why did I have to wait until the day before to find out we couldn't stay a little later? We had good communication during the whole reservation process but the check-out was disappointing.

    • Manager Responded on 2/19/2013

      Thank you for the review. In response to your comments: 1. Like most oceanfront homes, the Banyan is off a busy coastal road. There is a stoplight a few houses down from the entrance to the estate; if you simply wait for the oncoming traffic to stop at a red light, pulling out onto the road is easy as can be. 2. The beaches are affected after heavy rains, and can become muddy. Typically, the water here is clean and calm. 3. Late check out can only be confirmed one day in advance. We do not mean to "string people along", it is simply that we have a busy and complicated cleaning schedule amongst our 30+ homes, and late check out depends on a huge number of factors. Our only other option for late check out is to not offer it at all. In any case, thank you again for the review, we are very glad you enjoyed your stay. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    Shelli B from San Diego, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We totally enjoyed our stay at the Banyan Tree. We loved the kitchen with the double refrigerators; a group of our size (11) needed the extra room. We ate most of our meals in and the ample space in the kitchen allowed us to cook together without tripping over each other. It was well equipped with everything we needed to make our simple meals. The large tables for seating many people for dinners was also appreciated. The big round table in the living room was perfect for playing games at night. The management staff was awesome; any problems (there were few) were addressed amiably and promptly. A washer and dryer on the premises was so convenient for keeping our laundry under control. We used the hot tub almost everyday, but not the pool. It was beautiful but with all the beaches and gorgeous water surrounding the island we were otherwise occupied. There is a Costco 10 min. away and a Foodland 3 min. down the road, which were very convenient. This house was great for a large group, but not perfect. The front "bedroom" has no closet and the wall between it and the living room is mostly just a shell panel. It doesn't filter noise well. The only person who should be assigned that room is someone who sleeps very heavily and doesn't snore. The furniture in the house looks great in the pictures, but much of it is well worn, which I guess is to be expected in a rental unit. Some of the areas in the house need some updating too. I think it is a work in progress as there were new wood floors in the bedrooms, and the kitchen and two of the bathrooms have been redone. The beach in front of the house is not terrific and the water is very shallow out for quite a way. It is not good for swimming, although it is very safe for small children. All in all I would recommend this house to a large group looking for comfort and affordability, but not luxury.

    There were 9 of us, My wife and I. our 4 kids and 3 boyfriends/ girlfriends. The house worked perfectly for us. Everybody had their own rooms and the common area was huge. The beach was nice for walks or just chillin. The swimming was not great because the water was so shallow, but it was nice being on the water. We enjoyed the hot tub and the pool. The 2 other cabins on the property were not an issue for us. The house was private and we never saw anyone else in the pool when we used it.
    The condition of the house could be described as relaxed. it had that cabin sort of feel. cupboards and doors needed adjustment, the fan in the master bedroom was noisy and it would be nice if they took away the old appliances when they replaced them. However, all the air conditioners worked, the double fridges were were nice and the place was complete for an extended stay.
    We would definitely go back to the Banyan Tree.

    As close as the property was to the highway we were surprised at how quiet it was. Except for the front yard and pool area, we never heard highway traffic. All rooms were large and comfortable, but the Jack and Jill bathroom between two of the bedrooms could be awkward for some parties. Whole house A/C would be nice, but we had continuous breezes all week (avg. temp 85 in early November) and it was fine. Don't go swimming out in the waves without a boogie board or surfboard as it can be deceivingly treacherous. I had snorkeling gear, had a fin torn off, my snorkel torn off and had to be rescued or I wouldn't be here writing this.

    Sharon H from Fulshear, TX recommends this vacation rental

    When our two weeks were up I did not want to leave and I usually look forward to getting home, but not this time. The house was well equipped and comfortable enough for a large number of people to enjoy it without feeling cramped. The beach wasn't swimmable but we were close to Huanama Bay so that didn't matter. The pool water was crystal clear and refreshing and the location was near my daughter's house and an easy drive to anywhere else we wanted to go. The only negative was the layout of the bedrooms-a better description of the two bedrooms with a bath between and the bedroom that was more of a porch (not near a bathroom) would have been nice. The snorkel gear and boogie boards were appreciated and having the washer/dryer meant we had fresh towels daily which was a real luxury! I miss the sounds of the ocean and the evening breezes now that I am back in Texas. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    • Manager Responded on 11/8/2010

      Thank you for the helpful suggestions and the great review! We are happy to describe the house layout in detail, please call us anytime with questions. The home has five bedrooms and three full bathrooms: the master has an ensuite bathroom, the second and third bedrooms are connected by a large, handicap accessible bathroom, and the third bath is directly next to the fourth bedroom and seperated from the fifth bedroom by the living room. It's true that Haunama Bay, one of the most beautiful snorkeling spots in Hawaii, is very close by. But you can also swim and snorkel just outside of the home, simply walk about 100 feet and you will be past the shallow area and in water perfect for swimming. Mahalo Hawaii Beach Homes

    a guest from Honolulu, Hi does not recommend this vacation rental.

    We had to wait in the driveway for 30 minutes to check in because the cleaning person was late. There was still hair on the bathroom counters and a pile of trash left in the backyard. We had to request that the cleaning company return, and when they did, they didn't clean the floors. The house was underventilated--it was so hot in the afternoons that we often had to leave. The owners need to install central air, especially since there aren't tradewides on that side of the island. Also, there wasn't much beach. We will definitely find another beach house the next time we're on Oahu.

    • Manager Responded on 2/19/2013

      We are sorry you didn't enjoy yourselves in the home. The cleaning people were not late, they simply stayed later in an attempt to finish, as the previous tenants had been quite messy. Our contract stipulates that cleaning staff can remain in the home until 6pm if needed, though this is rarely necessary. The cleaning staff would have happily stayed in the home until it was finished proproperly, but the clients checking in requested they leave. Mahalo Hawaii Beach Homes

    The house was nice and spacious; however, the construction of the house seemed a bit dated. There were holes in the walls causing lizards and cockroaches to sometimes get inside. The water heater also needed resetting several times throughout the trip causing some of us to have to take freezing cold showers.

    This place really is a beach side property. Step from the garden onto the sand. The sea here is not too good for swimming, you can walk out a long way in the shallows.

    The home is spacious, great for a family reunion and right on the beach, although it is not a swimming beach. The pool was clean and is huge and the hot tub was clean and provided spectacular views of the ocean while soaking. We, a family of 10, really enjoyed our stay at the Banyan Tree.

    Christina V from Los Altos, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We really enjoyed our stay - the view was beautiful every night, the house itself is gorgeous and very impressive. The kitchen was great to have - we stayed in for half our meals, and there was so much convenient and comfortable seating for all of us. Great to have two large fridges, too. The beach was so close that we could let the kids go out on their own, and since the water was very, very shallow for nearly 1/4 mile out from the sandy beach, we didn't really worry about them being swept away. The jacuzzi was nice to have, since water was cooler than expected. Location of the house was very central, within easy driving distance to both Waikiki and Hawaii Kai/Waimanalo/etc. Wifi was good, too. Main living area was huge and great for an extended family reunion, with lots of sleeping rooms. Room configuration was a little weird (master suite had another room leading off the bathroom, which was great for family with kids, but could be awkward if accommodating two couples.) We would love to come back for another visit.
    Though the house was very impressive and beautiful at first glance, many simple maintenance items were not ready at move-in. The house is definitely not a newer property, or even a newer remodel - for instance, paint on the drawers in the master bath was peeling so badly that half of them were different colors, and there was mildew in many areas. However, Bob responded to our only complaint email immediately, quickly fixing most of the functional problems (light bulbs and dirty washing machine) with complete courtesy and a terrific, friendly attitude. At move-in, nearly half of all light bulbs were not working, there were loose electrical fixtures on walls and door hardware about to fall off doors, a broken rack in freezer. Hall closet door completely off hinges. Back patio screens very loose and fell off tracks constantly. Not sure what's wrong with the patio door screens but they do not work correctly - large gaps on ends do not prevent mosquitos

      Glad your family had such a wonderful time! Your comments have been very helpful and we are attending to them currently. Update: all of the maintenance issues mentioned have been fixed.

    Had a small critter in our house that took things off of our kitchen counters (etc. bananas, batteries). Reported it to the property manager but on one showed up to correct the problem. Upon leaving we reported the critter to the cleaning staff. Hope they removed it!!!

    • Manager Responded on 12/14/2009

      Thank you for the review. Maintenance actually went in immediately after receiving the call, but the guests were not in at the time and therefore assumed we didn't respond. Maintenance took care of the situation and the home is now "critter" free. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

    a guest from Odon, IN recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed our stay and were very pleased with the property, the pictures of the Banyan tree house need to be labeled, and we had a little problem with sleeping arrangements upon our arrival due to the two beds being in the same room which is not described on the website. It was very difficult to find the property and then difficult to get out on the highway every morning. The house was very hot upon our arrival. Very little wash cloths in house but property manager dropped off a few when requested. We rented entire property for 8 nights and part of our group stayed by the pool for the majority of the stay and reported that the neighbors and 10 of their friends came over to use the pool . I was not aware that we had to share the pool with the neighborhood. Overall stay was great and property manager was very helpful and attentive to our request.

      Thanks for staying with us Michelle and family, you were great guests! We have restocked all linens, hand towels and beach towels at the home since your visit. The easiest way to exit the estate is to wait until the stop lights at the nearby intersection have halted traffic, then you have plenty of time to turn on to Kalanianaole.

    a guest from Anchorage, AK recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The guest rooms were great - they all had AC which was a plus. The house is very spacious, clean and accessible. The pool was wonderful. It's a large pool with warm water, we used it every afternoon. We enjoyed walks on our little beach - unable to swim in ocean because of the reef but didn't miss it too much. There were 10 of us so the double frig came in handy. We would recommend this house to anyone.

    • Manager Responded on 11/9/2010

      Thanks so much, Delores! Some guests walk down the beach all the way to the Kahala Hotel for afternoon tea or evening cocktails, we highly recommend it.

    Jessica B from Clovis, NM recommends this vacation rental

    This house had tons of space so everyone was able to have their own private time, and the house was in a good location to all the south shore and the big cities.

    • Manager Responded on 11/9/2010

      Mahalo, Jessica! The house is located in a great spot -- if you drive west you are in Diamond Head and Waikiki within minutes, 20 minutes from the airport and 30 from Pearl Harbour. If you go east you will have shopping and restaurants in Hawaii Kai, which is a lovely alternative to Waikiki, and famous Hanauma Bay is minutes away for fantastic snorkeling. We highly suggest you take the scenic drive past the Bay to Waimanalo Beach, one of the most beautiful on the island. While there stop at a little place called Sweet Home Waimanalo, our new favorite restaurant that uses all local produce. Call us anytime for more suggestions!!
