Honolulu villa description

Koko Kai Thai Palace com (Aloha Palace com) Special 10% Discount on Sept., Oct. and Nov. 2014 rentals if paid by bank transfer or e-check. Please do not rely on the Instant Quotes Rates Feature of this portal, it is simply unworkable and unuseable for homes in residential areas of Honolulu which by law can only be rented just once in any 30-day period, so usually it is not possible to rent this home for a mere week because of the many expenses and costs of ownership and maintenance in top condition of a home such as KokoKaiThaiPalace which simply cannot be covered by a rental for just one week per month. Therefore in the Rates Section there are minimum rental periods which exceed the 7-nights ('One Week') price quote, but unfortunately the portal automatically pro-rates the rental for the additional nights at the same higher rate per night as the cost of the first week of any rental, and the resulting quoted rental cost is higher than it should be if the portal priced the additional nights at the considerably reduced per night rates for the 'Xtra' additional nights price. Just add up the listed cost of the first week for the given time period plus the cost of the additional nights and add 13.962% Tax. The longer you stay, the less you pay for the additional nights beyond the first week (7 nights). The cost of the additional nights beyond the listed price of the rental for the first week is clearly listed in the season category heading as the „Xtra“ night price. Please contact owner for correct prices. KokoKaiThaiPalace is a custom home (actually two homes, a very large three-story home with an elevator, and also a separate guest cottage located across the swimming pool from the main home) nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac in the Triangle/Portlock exclusive residential area of Koko Kai in South-East Honolulu in Oahu). This magnificent villa built by Zen Buddhists in the style of a Palace in Thailand, with many exotic hard woods and marble imported from Thailand, features altogether 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and 2 half-baths, with additional sleeping quarters furnished with comfortable Italian designer convertible futon-sofas to sleep a total of 15 adult guests. The Separate-Entry Housekeepers/Storage Room located next to the Carport is not subject of this rental agreement. This magnificent villa is located high up above the other villas on the side of the extinct crater on the other side of which is the world-famous Hanauma Bay nature preserve which has a pristine sandy beach and very protected live coral snorkling and diving. Yes, incredible as it sounds, Hanauma Bay is located just over the crater's edge from the backyard of the villa. The home offers beautiful wrap-around views from every room and amazing views of the sunset over Diamond Head crater on Waikiki Beach, ocean and surf views by day and City lights by night, and bonus views of the mountains and marina as well! Custom finishes include exotic imported hard woods, granite & marbles throughout. This property has a great floor plan for a large family, and includes a studio in the separate-entrance Guest Cottage, separate office area, swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Indoor and Outdoor entertainment space, extra family/TV room with the latest model Large 3D Flat TV's with all the premium cable TV Entertainment channels with the Premium Channell Cable Tuner at every TV location. There is a complimentary land line with unlimited calling in Hawaii as well as in all of the USA, with extension cables newly installed into all bedrooms includint the Guest Cottage and the Master Bedroom so you do not have to be a slave to your cell-phone to stay in touch, and a high-speed broad-band unlimited internet connection both via ethernet local network cable as well as via WIFI, all at no extra charge. There is 3+ car private parking with gated entry. You can comfortably walk from this home to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve in 5 – 10 minutes so you don't need a car to go swimming and snorkeling and diving in the world-famous Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve where every creature including the very friendly and docile tropical fish, the plentiful large green turtles and even the live coral are protected and the general public and tourists get to watch a short 10 min. movie about the ecology and conservation efforts to appreciate the natural wonders of this bay which until 1950 was reserved for the exclusive use of the Hawaiian Royal family, before they can go swimming or snorkeling or diving in it. You can drive to Hanauma Bay in only about two minutes and the parking all day costs only $1.00, and you will have more time to spend swimming, snorkeling and just soaking up the sun on the beautiful white sandy beach! This villa is also within walking distance to 3 shopping centers and fine dining and casual restaurants, gym and theater! Public transportation is also conveniently close-by at the entrance to the Hanauma Bay parking lot, so you can go all around the island of Oahu by bus if you wish for just a few dollars!
The main three story house with the elevator and the Luxurious Third Floor Master-Bedroom with it's own Jacuzzi Whirlpool bath-tub, and the separate Guest Cottage provide plenty of sleeping accommodations, as well as generously large living areas, and on the ground floor is an awe-inspiring marble-floor formal gathering area with a bar and georgeous wrap-around views ideal for receptions. There are fruit trees on the tropical landscaped grounds, and unlimited reverse-osmosis filtered and energized water available to you at no charge on tap in the kitchen!
If you are looking for a luxurious yet very private vacation home very close to the best swimming and snorkeling beach on Oahu, with a pool and jacuzzi located so high above the other homes in the area that you have total privacy, and one-with-nature Thai architecture that will take your breath away, this is your best choice! While you can see unobstructed views of the coastline from almost every window, no one can see you so your absolute privacy is assured!
This luxury home was recently extensively upgraded. The swimming pool and jacuzzi have been upgraded so that there is no chlorine used, and the pool stays squeeky clean because it is a so-called 'Salt-Water Pool' which means that there is some sea salt added but it's only about 1/10 as salty as the ocean, and through ozonation the pool is cleaned by oxygen as well as by UV-light and sand-filtration, so that between the healthy water in the pool and the fantastic and absolutely private views from the pool and jacuzzi you are going to have the experience of your life-time! No swimming suit required! State-of-the-art 'Blazing Tubes' Solar Water-Heating Panels make sure that the outdoor jacuzzi is heated ecologically, with any excess hot water so generously generated by the warm Hawaiian sun 'spilled' over into the swimming pool to make it warmer as well, all without any guilt about wasting the earth's non-renewable resources! Domestic hot-water (showers etc.) is also solar-heated!
Because this house is located in the prestigious KokoKai Triangle/Portlock residential beach-side area of Honolulu where by law same as in other residential areas of the city of Honolulu the houses can only be rented just once in any 30-day period and due to the economics of ownership and maintenance in top condition of such a magnificent house it simply is not economically feasible to rent the house for less than approx. ten days - two weeks except perhaps under special circumstances of a last minute cancellation when you might be able to rent it for just one week or hopefully longer.The owner thus naturally must prefer longer term rentals and therefore the price per additional nights is going to be substantially lower if you stay for longer than one week. With all the 'green' ecological measures that the owner has taken to reduce the operating cost of the house and it`s ecological 'footprint', the utility bill for electricity has gone down making it even more logical to prefer to rent the house for longer periods and can offer you very special deals on stays longer than a week, ideally for up to a month, or longer. The rental period of your vacation rental of my home must all be within the same calendar month, or no in exceptional situations like Christmas-NewYears no more than a maximum of just one or two days into the following calendar month, in order for the owner to have a good chance to realize twelve rentals in a calendar year.The peak rental season as far as the rental cost is June through September and December (Christmas/NewYears), and prices may vary depending on how many persons are in your group, how many adults vs how many kids, although so long as your group is less than about 15 persons altogether you will still receive the rental rates that you see published on this portal which are however subject to change without notice until paid for. Please always call and e-mail (we recommend you do both) the Owner, Milan Frank Vacek (literally anytime 24/7) to: milan@vacek.cz , Czech Cell Phone +420 602 38 66 44 (yes you can send an SMS Text Message) . Owner Milan Frank Vacek, Hawaii State Tax ID: W25873967-01. So please ask the owner Milan Vacek to give you a special rate particularly for extended stays, that way you will be able to leisurely visit all the wonders of Oahu and really relax on your vacation! The next chance to rent this very unique home is July 31, 2014.The owner Milan Vacek hopes to rent the home for longer terms preferably for several months, but please always do inquire about the possibility of shorter rentals of at least a week as well. The rental period does not have to be any particular length of time and the arrival and departure dates do not have to be on any particular day of the week, but Saturday arrivals-departures are most desired, so please just ask. Send me an SMS and I will call you back via Skype from my PC. ALOHA from Prague.

          • Wheelchair Accessible:

            Thanks to the comfortable modern elevator servicing all three floors of the main house your wheel-chair-bound family members and guests should be able to move easily within the main house. However there is a step up from the carport (top of the driveway) to the floor-level of the ground floor of the main house so assistance by able-bodied friends or family members will be required to make it through the front door, perhaps a temporary slanted ramp could be made or perhaps purchased ready-made (by our able handyman David) if you let us know sufficiently ahead of time that you need a ramp. The third-floor master bedroom has a couple of stairs up to get from the elevator landing to the level of the bedroom and so it will not be practical for fully wheel-chair-bound guests to stay in the master bedroom unless you will have able-bodied group members who will be able to help them get there.

            Kids are welcome, just please be sure to supervise them so they don't hurt themselves (or destroy the house), which the owner bought to live in, so please try to leave the house in as nice a condition as when you moved in. Kids will be absolutely delighted when they visit Hanauma Bay, and for body-surfing we especially recommend 'Sherwood Forest Beach' which you may have to ask one of the lifeguards at 'Sandy Beach' for example how to find the Sherwood Forest Beach, but we did find it an especially nice beach with just the right-size waves to enjoy the surf, but there are so many other beautiful naturally sandy beaches in South-East Oahu, particularly in Lanikai, where you might feel as if you are in Tahiti. Make sure you also take the kids to the Sea Life Park and let them try to Dolphin Encounter experience. When you buy the yearly pass you only pay about twice the cost of a single entry, so if you stay long enough or plan to return within a year it is advantageous buy 1 year!...moreless

          • Non Smoking Only:

            Thank you for not smoking anywhere inside the villa, your lungs and friends and family will thank you for it as well! If there should be any smoking taking place within the home during a rental this is grounds for an immediate termination of rental contract with no right to get any refund of the rental price, so please make sure none of your family members and friends and visitors smoke inside any part of the room, and if they have to smoke outside the house but still on the property please make sure that they use an ashtray and do not leave any cigarette butts lying around, they are poisonous and potentially lethal to babies, plants, birds, and other living creatures. Thank you very much for your cooperation. ...moreless

                              Koko Kai Thai Palace com. Custom designed home (actually two homes, a very large three-story home with an elevator, and also a separate guest cottage located across the swimming pool from the main home) is nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac in Koko Kai, an area of South-East Oahu (part of Honolulu) also called 'The Triangle/Portlock prestigious residential area in Koko Kai, the most exclusive part of Hawaii Kai. This magnificent villa built in the style of a Palace in Thailand by Zen Buddhists, with many exotic hard woods and tile imported from Thailand, features altogether 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and 2 half-baths, with additional sleeping quarters furnished with comfortable Italian suede-like memory-foam convertible fouton-sofas to sleep a total of 15 guests. This magnificent villa is located high up above the other villas on the side of the extinct crater which forms the world-famous Hanauma Bay nature preserve beach and snorkling-diving very protected and pristine beach located just over the crater's edge from the backyard of the villa. The home offers beautiful wrap-around views from every room. Amazing views of the sunset over Diamond Head crater on Waikiki Beach, ocean and surf views by day and City lights by night. Bonus views of the mountains and marina as well! Custom finishes include exotic hard woods, granite & marbles throughout. This property has a great floor plan for a large family, and includes a separate guest suite in the Guest Cottage, separate office, swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Indoor and Outdoor entertainment space, extra family/TV room with the latest model Large 3D Flat TV's and all the premium cable TV Entertainment channels on each of the TV`s, a complimentary land telephone line with unlimited calling any normal cell-phone or land-line phones not just in Hawaii but anywhere in the USA at no charge, and a high-speed broadband unlimited internet connection both by ethernet 'Cat-5' local-network cable as well as via WIFI, at no extra charge, plus 3+ car parking with gated entry. Ideally located close to Hanauma Bay which incredible as it sounds is located right over the ridge of the extinct volcano, so you could literally go hiking up there or you can comfortably walk there in 5-10 minutes from this home so you don't need a car to go swimming and snorkeling and diving in the world-famous Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve where every creature including the very friendly and docile tropical fish, the plentiful large green turtles and even the live coral is protected and the general public and tourists have to watch a movie about the ecology and conservation efforts to preserve the natural wonders of this bay that until approx. 1950 was reserved for the use of only the Hawaiian Royal family, before they can go swimming or snorkeling or diving in it. Or just drive there in 2 minutes, park for $1.00 all day! If you get yourself a Hawaii Drivers License, for which you do not need to be a Hawaii Resident, the only requirement is a valid US Passport and an original Social Security Card and passing the test, you pay no entrance fee! This villa is also within walking distance to 3 shopping centers and fine dining and casual restaurants, gym and theater! Public transportation is also very conveniently close-by at the entrance to the Hanauma Bay parking lot, so you can go all around the island of Oahu if you wish for just a couple of dollars!

                              The villa is also available for Wedding Receptions, Movie-Making and Commercials-TV Productions, as well as large-Family get-togethers. There are fruit trees on the large tropical landscaped grounds, and reverse-osmosis filtered and energized water available to you free on tap in the kitchen!

                              If you are looking for a luxurious yet very, very private vacation very close to the best swimming and snorkeling beach on Oahu, with a pool and jacuzzi located so high above the other homes in the area that you have total privacy, this is your best choice! While you can see unobstructed views of the coastline from almost every window, no one can see you to notice if you are wearing beach-wear or not!

                              Luxury home recently extensively upgraded. The swimming pool and jacuzzi have been recently upgraded so that there is no chlorine used anymore, and the pool stays squeeky clean because it is a so-called 'Salt-Water Pool' which means that there is some salt added but it's only about 1/10 as salty as the ocean, and through ozonation the pool is cleaned by oxygen as well as by UV-light and sand-filtration, so that between the healthy water in the pool and the fantastic and absolutely private views from the pool and jacuzzi you are going to have the experience of your life-time! No swimming suit required! State-of-the-art 'Blazing Tubes' Solar Water-Heating Panels make sure that the outdoor jacuzzi is heated ecologically. The AlohaPalace first available rental dates begin on Sept.1, 2014, so reserve early and don`t miss out on your chance to rent the Palace.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: Aloha, in January 2011 I purchased the home of my dreams in the exclusive Triangle/Portlock residential area of Honolulu in Hawaii Kai, and I invested not only lifetime savings but had to sell the villa in my native city of Prague that was in our family for 80 years in order to be able to buy it, and still ended up with a small mortgage to pay for the next 30 years! If it were not for the mortgage I would be living in my dream home right now, and I would not be renting it. But I enjoy making the house and garden even a little bit better each time that I am there and knowing that vacation renters and their families enjoy spending their reunions and special celebrations at my house. I have just widened the driveway, extensively remodeled a separate-entrance storage room adjacent to the carport by adding a bathroom and transformed it into a completely self-sufficient housekeepers/storage room, and installed a solar photovoltaic system to make the house even more ecological than before. I have business to finish up in Prague in my native Czech Republic, where I returned from Los Angeles following the Velvet Revolution of 1989. I will have to rent my beautiful home at least most of the year in order to be able to come and enjoy it at least once a year (in July or August) with my family for our 'working vacation'. The house was 'perfect' when I bought it and all my efforts since then have been to make it an even better place to live for me and my family, which should make it even more attractive and comfortable for you to stay in when you rent it. All improvements that I make and all purchases of new LED TV sets and other electronics and furniture are done with the long-term best interests in mind, and as a result of a recent visit of my ninety-year-old parents from Los Angeles the villa will be even more handicapped-access friendly. I hope that you will enjoy staying in my home as much as my family and I do. ALOHA, Milan Vacek, AlohaPalace com

                              Why the Owner Chose Honolulu:
                              I purchased this particular home because from the first moment that I saw it and especially once I was inside and saw the spectacular unobstructed views of the coastline and all the beautiful massive wood and marble and huge picture windows construction with plentiful louvered and screend windows for natural flow-through ventilation and the elevator to connect the three levels of the main house as well as the georgeous separate entrance Studio Guest Cottage I just knew that I had to buy it ... and I did! The home was not cheap, but just a couple of years before I purchased it, it was listed for sale for more than double the price that I had purchased it for, and the owners who built this magnificent home with so much love and caring and with no expense spared had invested so much money into making it the beautiful palace that it is that just about all the money that I paid them went just to pay off their mortgage, so I have no doubt that it was a 'bargain', and I am very proud to be the owner. I had resolved after seeing dozens of other beautifull homes mostly scattered over the nearby hilltops that I wanted to live in the Triangle area because of the proximity to the world-famous Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve in order to be close to the beautiful sheltered beach and live coral and incredibly tame fish and large green turtles with which I so much enjoy snorkeling and hope to be also scuba-diving in the future, which is only a short walking distance from the villa, as are several excellent public schools, shopping centers and many other attractions. I had toyed with the idea of buying a home in the 'marina' area which would have had a slip and the possibility of having a boat with which I could have had easy access to the sea, but because of the low bridge under which all boats have to go it is not possible to have a sailboat and in the wake of the recent tsunami disasters in Thailand and Japan I wanted to be 50+ m high above any tsunami dangers which my house is.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              I love the fact that the home is ideally located high up the side of the extinct crater way above all the surrounding homes offering spectacular unobstructed views of the coastline, and enjoying natural easy breazes from the ocean which flow through the many louvered and screened windows to offer perfectly comfortable fresh air at all times without any need for airconditioning or heating year-round, at one with nature, just as the builders, who are Zen-Buddhists (Swiss professor and his Thai wife) had intended to be, a perfect place for contemplation, meditation, relaxation and regaining new energy. I hope that you will enjoy staying in my home as much as I do. It is called the KokoKaiThaiPalace (com) because it is on the seeward ('Kai') side of the extinct Koko Crater, and it was built like a Thai Palace, and the street that it is on, Kekaha Place, well isn`t it a coincidence, that 'Kekaha' in Hawaiian means 'The Place' ! This is my place in paradise! I looked up the word Kekaha on Google and the story goes that some locals were driving or perhaps walking around the Island of Kauai and one of them suddenly exclaimed to the others 'KEKAHA !' - there it is - pointing out a bay where something exciting happened in his life, perhaps he caught a big fish, and since that time that bay is called Kekaha Bay, and in fact all the street names in this part of Hawaii Kai are named after various geographical features and tourist attractions on the island of Kauai, like Poipu Drive at the corner! The first available open term for you to rent the KokoKaiThaiPalace com (aka AlohaPalace com) is Sept. 1, 2014, and I am looking for the best offer on rentals for 2 weeks, or in any case at least 10+ nights, within the same month. The AlohaPalace may be available not just for vacation rentals but also for long term rentals lasting several months or longer, you are welcome to inquire with the owner, Milan Vacek, now in Honolulu milan@vacek.cz Hurry, book now!
