“Clean, easy walk to lovely beach, but noisy neighbors”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

"Palm Villas w/Paradise Suite"
PROS: clean and fairly private rooms, pool cleaned daily, basic dishware and dorm size refrigerator provided (no stove/oven, only a microwave and toaster oven), Steve & Susie were pleasant, short walk through public park to lovely beach, beach items were provided (towels, chairs etc), washer/dryer available (free), short walk to small convenience store (tasty breakfast/lunch items), short walk to a few restaurants (good, but not great food, much better options available driving into Kailua)
CONS: daily bouts of yelling and screaming at each other (children and adults) from neighbor's house (afternoon naps impossible), very popular local beach which caused major traffic issues when getting in/out of property on weekends, fence/gate construction during visit which caused difficulties getting in/out of parking area, BIG CON: only access to bedrooms is via a very narrow, steep, metal, curved stairway, which made it challenging to get suitcases up to the bedrooms. It would be very difficult for a less than able-bodied person to go up and down the stairway especially while carrying bags/suitcases. Beware of sharp edges on the metal steps as they will cut your feet. Ouch!
*** There was a $150 cleaning fee added to the bill (clear and upfront about this charge) however this was charged in addition to being required to remove and pile all bedding, towels etc. and cleaning the kitchen prior to checking out.
All in all we had a nice stay. Thankfully there were no guests in the other units during our stay which made our honeymoon nice. Had the other units been occupied we believe that it would have made for a crowded and noisy stay. We would recommend this for families, but not so much for honeymooners, or those looking for a romantic getaway.

Aloha,
Just a note to let you know that our beautiful gate is now finished and affords the privacy intended, adding a sense of beauty when entering the property. We can't help that our neighbors were loud... usually they are not, but sometimes, as with all local families, they are. That's the price one pays for staying in a residential neighborhood.
Also, regarding the steps in the Palm Villa; just ask and we will be happy to bring your luggage in for you, through the back door. We do it all the time. We love all of our guests; we gave these honeymooners the Paradise Suite for free during their 8 night stay and they never mentioned that.
