The photos do not do justice to this lovely Keahou Estates home. The home is absolutely immaculate and appears newly remodeled.
The kitchen is well-appointed and has everything you will need for your visit. We have stayed in many vacation rentals over the years and this home had by far the best selection of cookware, utensils, glassware, and serving dishes of any home we have rented. Everything was top quality; the owners spared no expense in furnishing and equipping the property. The home was so clean that it sparkled; I couldn’t find a speck of dust anywhere.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Two of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and a third bedroom/den has access to a guest bathroom with shower. The master bedroom and bath are enormous. Our son (USMC 1st Recon Battalion 2007-2011) joined us from his job in Washington, D.C. and greatly enjoyed and appreciated the Marine Corps mementos in the den.
Because the weather was so beautiful, we spent most of our time on the lanai and around the pool. There were plenty of lounge chairs and outdoor tables as well as a gas BBQ for grilling steaks. The pool is maintained weekly and was very clean. Two small side fountains spray water from the outer rim of the pool back into the center of the pool for several hours a day. We weren’t sure if the fountains served an additional practical function, but the pool service explained that it is simply a decorative water feature. The fountains are on a timer for the first half of the day and we grew to love the sound of the running water. You can stay to one side of the pool if you don’t want to get sprayed, and the sprinkler automatically turns off in the early afternoon. The pool guy said a family with young children had rented the house the week before and the kids thought the fountains were the greatest things in the world. They loved feeling the spray of water on their heads and shoulders.
The house is directly across from the gatehouse and is on the main path as you enter and exit the subdivision. We were a bit worried whether traffic noise might be a problem, but it was not an issue. Keahou Estates is an extremely quiet, safe, and upscale neighborhood, and we barely heard any vehicle traffic. The landscaping is lush and well maintained, and the living room and lanai boast a fantastic and unimpeded view of the ocean. The house and grounds feel very private.
It is obvious that a lot of love has gone into this property, and the pride of ownership is apparent. We would not hesitate to stay here again; in fact, we’re already contemplating our next trip!
