Very nice steps from Kailua beach. Great for a Hawaiian coming home for a visit.
Excellent property with an excellent location near the beach, easy beach access, quiet neighborhood, quiet neighbors, well-appointed house. Enjoyed it immensely, would definitely come back.
Beautiful location, well-equipped, but. . .
First, this listing reads like there is air conditioning, plus a unit in the master. No. The unit in the master is it. And since many windows and all of the doors lack screens it is difficult to get a cross breeze without letting in lots of flies. It got really hot upstairs in the afternoon and downstairs at night. Two of the fans that were in the house weren't working, so I went out to buy another so that we would have a functioning fan in every room.
In addition, if you have respiratory issues, look elsewhere. One of the bedrooms had a very strong mold smell and my husband cleaned visible mold off of the floor and window frame for me. We also purchased an air purifier to use in that room, which helped some, but I wouldn't stay here again for that reason alone.
I would describe the furniture and bedding as tired. The kitchen was well-equipped, and there were plenty of towels, and beach toys, but I did have to go buy beach mats since the towels weren't supposed to go to the beach.
This rental's rating was saved by its location and the beautiful beach.
Great place near great beach!!
This was a fabulous place for a family getaway. We would rent it again in the future. We managed to be comfortable even during some hot days with the extra room fans there. The kitchen was well stocked. A true joy to eat on the lanai every morning and night with a view of the ocean.
The best beach in Oahu
Perfectly placed a very short walk from the best beach on Oahu in my opinion. A bit more air conditioning, particularly downstairs, would have been nice, but that was a small thing compared with the overall ambience. Kitchen area well stocked and everything worked.
About Crystal Knysh
My parents own our lovely Kailua beach house. They purchased the property in approximately 1986 and my dad actually built the vacation rental beach house when I was a child.
Crystal Knysh purchased this Estate in 1986
What makes this Estate unique
The main house next door is a registered Historic Residence, built in 1928. It originally was the Mark A. Robinson family beach house, the family who has owned the island of Ni'ihau since 1864. When my dad built the guest house he mirrored the architecture and design of the main house. Staying on this property is truly enjoying a piece of history.
