I really wanted to give this rental 5 stars, but there were just a few things needing improvement. Don't get me wrong, this was an excellent stay for us and we really enjoyed ourselves. We had a family Xmas vacation for a week; with 4 adult couples, a 17 yr old, and a 4 month old. A perfect space for 10 people. On a value scale I would give it 5 stars. The views and the beach I would give 5 stars. The backyard, lanai, balcony, and patio furniture = 5 stars. The two main bedrooms (up & down) = 5 stars. The bathrooms (three of them, which was great having) needed some updating = 4 stars. The main living area I would give 4 stars (nice sitting area & big screen TV, but the dining table needed more chairs). The parking, outdoor laundry, outdoor shower, toy shed, and BBQ area = 5 stars. The two secondary bedrooms = 3.5 stars (spacious with queen beds, but no view). The kitchen = 3.5 stars (galley kitchen that needs updating). Road noise = 3 stars and Internet = 1 star (we had to go to Starbucks). The property is located on a strip of beach along with a dozen other beach homes - great location about 30 to 40 minutes from the airport. Local shopping & restaurants are good, with upscale shopping/restaurants 15 minutes away. I suggest shopping at Costco in Kapolei for all of your vacation needs. The house comes well stocked with many items you will need for your stay. There are also local parks & beaches within walking distance, but there really is no need to leave the property. A gated driveway and beach gate gives you added security. Summer was great to talk with and she was very accommodating. Overall, I would highly recommend the Paradise Beach Rental. It is a great value and a very lovely place to sit back & relax.
