Villa Matisse is located in the gated community of  Orient Bay, also known as Orient Village or Orient Bay Resort. The villa is centrally located in the Village to reach shops and restaurants on foot. Orient Beach is at your doorstep: Waiiki, La Playa and Coco Beach are in front of the house. 

Restaurants, grocery stores and shops at the marketplace of Orient Village are 400 yards away.  Within walking distance are also two restaurants located off the beach at the main road that leads into the village.

Great spot
Great spot if you’re looking for a solid 2 BR villa (w/pool) — nothing fancy but everything you need … kitchen, living room, patio, pool, clean beds, etc. Bedrooms are upstairs which is nice. Checking in and out was easy. Only caution is that it is difficult to get a taxi from Orient Beach, so either rent a car or make sure to get a few taxi driver numbers to call in advance of departure times.

Clean, quiet, great apartment close to the famous beach
Great apartment, in a residential vacation resort, very close to the famous beach, bar and restaurants. Also a small village with bakery and grocery stores. As soon as we arrived at the apartment, we were welcomed and got the keys. Our booking was very last minute and it was nice to have a fast and effective communication with the person who works for the owners. We had a few small maintenance issues, and these were addressed right away. It is a great place for a couple with kids, or 2 couples, but there is only 1 bedroom upstairs and a really comfortable sofa bed downstairs, (only 2 rooms vs 3 rooms in the description, only 2 beds vs 3 listed), I would say it is perfect for 2 to 4 people max. The apartment was clean, quiet, nicely furnished, we really enjoyed the patio for breakfast and relaxing. We would come back again!

Convienent location, perfect sized villa for 6
We stayed at this unit with our young adult children and their girlfriend and boyfriend for 8 nights. The villa was a perfect size for us and less than 5 minute walk to the restaurants and bakeries in the small village and steps from the beach. The large living room and covered lanai and balconies gave everyone a quiet place if they wanted it. Just a few things to consider, you cannot see the beach from the villa, you can hear the waves. The Wi-Fi strength was not sufficient to use, there isn’t an outdoor grill and the dishwasher was broken. Despite these inconveniences, I would recommend this villa as the unit itself was a great fit for our family.

Great Villa-Perfect Location
The 3 BR, 3 level Villa Matisse is a very spacious beach-side villa located right behind the Waikiki Beach bar/restaurant on Orient Bay. The community is gated. The view out any window of the villa looked out on no other units and the surrounding vegetation (palm trees, bushes, etc.) afforded terrific privacy. This is not a luxury villa, but the location is hard to beat for anyone wishing to spend time at Orient Bay. There is an abundance of space so that guests don’t feel cramped together. When looking for an affordable beach-side villa at Orient Bay, the space and location offered by Matisse would be tough to beat.

My concern about rating this property so well is that we will not be able to find an open week the next time we want to rent.

I would definitely return. The house is well maintained, plenty of room for our family of 6. It’s directly behind Wakiki Beach restaurant & beach. The maid service was fantastic. It had so many beach towels, we didn’t need to bring any. Lots of pots, pans, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer and soap& detergents. welcome basket of beer, wine, water, snacks was very nice after a long day traveling. The location is the best. I’d highly recommend the shop N’ drop grocery delivery = they were great.
