The house itself is spacious, and the living room is very open with great light, but the bedrooms / bathrooms could use some upgrades. E.g., the shower curtain was very moldy at the bottom in one of the bathrooms, and the blinds didn't work super well. Also, there was no shampoo / conditioner provided, which was odd relative to the vast majority of listings on AirBnB / VRBO.
Lastly, I'd be aware that the house is located on a fairly busy street with cars driving pretty quickly, making getting out of the driveway slightly challenging. The driveway itself can only fit 3 cars comfortably, and even then, it was challenging to park in such a way as to not block any other cars.
Overall, we had a comfortable stay for a group of 10.
Great views, many conversation areas, plenty of parking, and a nice outside space made it an excellent overall choice for us. The beach itself and the 500 yards of very shallow (2-3’) not so clear water weren’t as usable as they were nice to look at.
The location was easy to get back and forth to Honolulu, and to get elsewhere on the island. The kitchen was benefitted by 2 full size refrigerators, and plenty of space for multiple people to do their thing.
Very solid overall.
Only very minor issues we had were, outdoor recycling and nasty trash was overfull, from last renters and the there was lack of some basic amenities such as shampoo and bar soup in the showers, and coffee filters in the kitchen. If I knew that we would of prepared. A note to bring our own bath soaps would be handy. We left the extra filters but they should be part of the re-stocked items. Overall really enjoyed our stay, and the service from HI beach rentals. I would defiantly stay again for sure!
After reserving and making payment I received an invitation to an app for my phone that included all information for arrival and departure. As we have traveled to Oahu extensively we knew this area well. It is right along a major artery. We did hear traffic but it did not interfere with our enjoyment of the property. We did not use the bedroom closest to the street and found that playing a little 'white noise' at bedtime helped lessen any street noise in the two other bedrooms on that side of the house. We all slept well. The highlight for us was the daybed in the living room. We all enjoyed reading books sacked out on the daybed or on the sofa in the living area. We used the hot tub a lot as well which was a great addition.
We barely saw any people on the beach. The water in front of the house is shallow and water shoes are recommended. The kids enjoyed beach combing and walking along the beach.
The house is for sale and it feels 'staged' for the real estate market. This is okay except in the kitchen where it felt less stocked than other houses we've rented in the past.
Overall we were very satisfied with the property and the management. We would stay here again.
Manager Response: Mahalo, Hass Family! You were such wonderful guests, we do hope you are able to stay with us again. As the kitchen is well stocked with cookware and such we assume you would prefer more basic perishable items? We don't currently provide such things, but are talking to the owner about doing so. Prospective guests please note that the house is on the market as a vacation rental investment, as this home is one of few on island that possesses something called a NUC license. We continue to accept and honor reservations.
Manager Response: Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to leave a review, Jane! We hope to see you again.
Manager Response: We have since put all new furniture in and new wood floors. Come back and see our new improvements...
Excellent location, although we had a vehicle. Without one, the stay would not have been the same.
Beach was great, great for younger kids as the water is very shallow for a long, long ways out. There aren't really any waves because they break so far out. Snorkeling is good right there, due to the rocks/coral. You need water shoes, and there were extras at the house.
Overall a fantastic and memorable trip for all 11 of my family members. There is so much to see and do on the island, and the house was a perfect space to come back to each night.
I probably would not stay here again, but only because my kids are older (9 yrs and 10 yrs old) and they prefer having waves so they can boogie board, versus having shallow calm water. Having said that, my kids did thoroughly enjoy this beach and were not ready to come home when our time was up.
Feel. Perfect dining table for 8 to 10 people and the bedrooms and bathrooms accommodated our 8 people and could have held another 4. It has central air which is a must and in the backyard has a good size jacuzzi which we used a lot. We had friends over most nights and bbq’d and shared all of the Hawaiian local delicacies. Kahala shopping center is not far which has a Whole Foods and some fantastic sushi takeout. Parked 4 cars in their driveway but the Kawaikui Park is s short walk and can hold more cars
-Bed sheets and blankets weren't completely clean. Sheets were stained and blankets had dust on them.
-Shower faucet in room behind kitchen were switched. Cold water was hot, hot water was cold.
-Hook in bathroom in front left room fell off.
-Master bedroom shower faucet was leaky.
Thank you again for making our staycation a special one!
To the east KOKO head,to the west a lovely local beachpark and in the front ,wide blue sea and far offshore sea deepblue with white wave tops.
Beutiful!,never boring senenry ,indeed.
Though covered by coral reef inshore,somewhere in reef caves we could find many fishes as in Hanauma Bay.
In the evening we had great barbecue parties on the wide terrace cooking the local foods got at
near-by Wholefood or COSTCO and beefs,vegetables
fruits are good and reasonable as same in Tokyo.
The house stands along with the highway and we had some fear of noise but the central cooling system does work and we could almost shutout it.
A terrace lamp and kitchen disposal got wrong once but maintenance people came and fixed them very soon. So,we had no trouble at all.
If somethings to add for more comfortabe , more lighting over the entire terrace,shelter cover
for tables and chairs against sudden rain shower
and safety measures for hammmock riders not to fall on the stone walls aside.
Anyway,we all family,had a very,very good time
during the week long stay.
Thank you very much ,Hawaii Beach Homes !
Aloha from Kawamoto's, Tokyo Japan
thanks to all
On our first night there, we tried to use the BBQ grill and it didn't work. The little switch wasn't working so I called maintenance and the main office and no one answered. I even called the toll free number and they said they'd have someone get back to me but I didn't hear from anyone.
The hot tub was nice as well as the beach in front. Very relaxing and calm. I'd definitely recommend this house to many of my friends! Very close to Waikiki (20min) and other places.
Manager Response: Thank you for taking the time to review. This beach is perfect for stand up paddling, kayaking, and relaxing by the gentle waves. If you want to swim here it is best to put on reef shoes and walk out to the deep water, about 150 feet, depending on tide. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Aloha Barbara, Thank you for the review and we hope to have you back in the future. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Beach is beautiful and quiet. We all like it.
Manager Response: Aloha May, We appreciate your short and sweet review of South Shore 35! We too think this property is comfortable, beautiful, and quiet! We look forward to hosting you again in the future! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
The jacuzzi was not working when we arrived but a call into the management company was all it took to get someone out who fixed it with no further issues.
The house is older, its not fancy and there were signs of termite damage and repairs that were somewhat unsightly. However, it was perfect for our group because the house and furnishings were nice enough but not so nice that you worried about damaging anything.
The other reviews have accurately discussed the driveway, the noise and the convenience of nearby grocery stores.
It would have been helpful if the write up on the house had included more specific information on using the beach such as advising guests to bring water shoes, how far out to walk before you can swim and have a sandy bottom, etc. I read it in the reviews when booking but forgot 6 months later when arriving. Also, better instructions on using the air conditioner would be good. It seriously needs a temperature regulator. We froze one night when it was on and while it is easy to figure out once you figure it out, you freeze in the meantime. There were loose screens leaning next to the house on one side that should be removed.
All in all, a great little place for families to enjoy vacation. We met several of the permanent residents/neighbors who were very nice and friendly. I would rent it again.
Manager Response: Aloha Rene, Thank you very much for taking the time to review South Shore 35. We appreciate the suggestion on clear instructions on how to operate a central air timer and will be more detailed in the future. We don't provide "water socks" for our guests as most want to stick their toes in the sand and the beach out front is mostly sandy as depicted on our video tour which is posted on our direct web site. We very much enjoyed the time spent with your group and how nice you were during the holidays to our maintenance department while the Jacuzzi was being fixed up :) We do have a monthly service contract with this home in regards to termites. We appreciate the time spent writing your review for future guests. Happy New Year, Hawaii Beach Homes
Mahalo nui loa!

Manager Response: Aloha Patricia, We are happy to read that you enjoyed Hone Wai and the superb beachfront location along Laniakea Beach. Thank you for your groups patience with the jacuzzi issue, getting parts from the mainland during the holiday season do take a little longer than expected. We were glad to read about the stories about the children enjoying the beach and having a wonderful holiday break! We look forward to your group staying with us again next year :) Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Aloha Karen, Thank you for taking the time to review South Shore 35. This home was newly upgraded with amazing decor and linens. It sounds like your large group made great use of the large deck/ BBQ area! It is nice to do a little laundry while you are vacation too! We look forward to hosting you again in the future. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
The property was alot closer to Waikiki and Honolulu than first thought. Getting to touristy locations around the island was a breeze and quicker than expected.
The property itself is very spacious, clean and has an amazing backyard to boot.
The owners/property managers were non intrusive and made it clear they were contactable should we have any issues or questions during our stay.
Manager Response: Aloha Bobby, We very much appreciate your accurate description of South Shore 35. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location as well as the off the beaten path destinations too! We look forward to hosting you again in the future! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Aloha Jane, It is so wonderful to hear about your family enjoying this home as well as the true appreciation of being just outside Waikiki.

Manager Response: Aloha William, We too agree that South Shore 35 offers a great location in the comfort of your own home. A/C can be an issue if guests don't regularly use it. Depending on when our homes rent out some don't have guest for multiple days. In this case if we were contacted we could have had some of our staff come through and touch up. We have offices located here on Oahu and truly care for all of our guests. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

Manager Response: Aloha Moslenko Family,You folks were wonderful guests. Much Mahalos for your warm review, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Most beachfront homes are off of a main coastal road on Oahu. We have found that with the AC running, the noise is easily drowned out. We are very pleased to know you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: We would love to have you back anytime! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: We look forward to seeing you! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

If you have kids this is the only way to vacation in Hawaii. Thank you Hawaii Beach Homes for making and saving our family vacation to Hawaii.
Manager Response: Thanks for the tips, Leslie. The hot water actually does work in the bathroom, we have had a few reviews about this so will put up instructions on how to use this faucet. We have put painting the railing on our maintenance list. Mahalo for staying with us, hope the cruise was good! Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: We are so happy you had a great time, thank you for choosing to stay with us. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Like most beachfront homes in Honolulu, the house is located off the main coastal road. Most guests seem to stop noticing the traffic sounds after they have settled in, this is helped further if a/c and fans are turned on. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Mahalo! Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: We're so glad your family enjoyed Hawaii so much, Mahalo Salcedos!
Manager Response: Thank you so much, Hirota family! You were wonderful guests, we hope to see you again. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

Manager Response: Mahalo, Allen Family!
Manager Response: What a lovely review, thank you so much Jill. We look forward to seeing you again, you were all wonderful guests. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
- The location is perfect. Close enough to Waikiki to go in for dinner or to Hanauma Bay for snorkling but far enough away to get some real rest & relaxation.
- The house lay out was very spacious so each couple had their own privacy. The open concept living area was bright & airy. We spent many mornings lounging with coffee in the living area!
- The wonderful ocean view from the front decks & living room. Yes, the view is onto a bay but if you're not used to having the ocean at your door step it's a real treat. Laying in the hammock, watching paddle boarders, fishermen and surfers in the distance and even trying our hand a paddling boarding the bay. Fantastic.
- The master suite is excellent. An ocean view from the shower. Say no more! Loved waking up to sunshine through the skylight and moving to the outdoor deck to read and relax. Bliss.
- The back bedrooms are on the road side so are darker and noisier. This may be an issue for you.
- The kitchen, while spacious, lacked quality cooking items. Mismatched pots & pans, no wineglasses, etc. On the plus side, there were lots of dishes!
- The outdoor patio furniture, while ample, is worn and in need of replacing.
Overall, if you're looking for a beach home to share with friends for a vacation on Oahu I would have no trouble recommending South Shore!
Manager Response: Thank you for your suggestions. We have purchased more outdoor furniture, and added more wine glasses. We know how important wine is on vacation, so don't hesitate to call for such things! We are available 7 days a week. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Thank You Kathryn!! Mahalo, Sara
Manager Response: Mahalo for reviewing, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Thanks for the great review! South Shore 35 is located directly oceanfront on Maunaloa Bay, the perfect spot to try stand up paddling or kayaking, and directly in front of the surf break "secrets". The water 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. Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Thanks so much, Rob! A note about the beach: it is shallow and there are rocks for about 150 feet or so. If you walk out past the shallows the water is deep and wonderful for swimming. This area is considered a fantastic spot for kayaking and stand up paddling, and there is also a surf break here know as "secrets". As Rob mentions, many of our clients find this an excellent area for children, as the waters are never treacherous. Aloha, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: We are happy you enjoyed yourselves here, hope to see you again soon! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Thanks for the review. We try to schedule the yard crew between bookings, but as the house is so solidly booked this is not always possible. We were unable to reach you prior to their arrival, and apologize for the inconvenience. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Thanks much, Brad, we hope you can stay with us again soon. Mahalo, Sara
Manager Response: Mahalo for reviewing, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: What a wonderful review, thank you so much for sharing. Happy Birthday, Marjorie! Aloha, Hawaii Beach Homes
