Amazing property...a true Jem!
Amazing property...a true Jem!
Our family of 5 stayed in this lovely home away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. We had three kids under the age of 8 and it worked well for us. The home had everything we needed to make us feel at home. We felt relatively close to all that we wanted to experience. We shared the property with another family who also had kids and they had a fabulous experience together. They really enjoyed the property and hunting for frogs at night. You will love it here!

Owner response: We are so happy the kids enjoyed catching the toads. We have lots of bufo toads in Hawaii!
WOW!!!! The view was amazing, we were between the mountains and ocean. From the living room and decks we could see Chinamans Hat and the landscape was beautiful. Could not have had a more relaxing place. If you are looking for a quiet place and not to far away from lots of thing to do this is the place. If it is open the next trip to the island we will be back.

Owner response: It is a joy to be able to share the beauty of Hawaii through this very unique property. We are always spellbound by the views from Java Kai house and Bali Kai property. They are breathtaking. When our guests wish to return we receive the ultimate compliment. It is a testament to the fact that Java Kai provides our guests with much more than unparalleled scenic views and convenient location.
A secret and beautiful getaway

I almost hate to share the wonderful attributes of this rental. The view is incredible, the accomodations are comfortable, the owner is kind and attentive and the location is perfect. I found this property on VRBO and really hit the perfect place. Oahu is much more crowded and expensive which makes this place a real gem. The furnishings are comfortable, the kitchen is well-stocked and it is clean. It has a new flat screen TV as well as a perfect little sound system with a dock for music. One could bring an HDMI cable and hook up to their laptop. It is near many beaches and only about a 30 minute drive to the North Shore. South is Kailua and Lanikai. It is away from the hustle of Honolulu but easy access to wherever one wishes to explore. There is ample parking and a secure gate. The view just has to be experienced. The pictures are accurate but it still should be experienced. I would stay there again and recommend it highly.. Thanks again to the owner, Leilani, for all of her kindness.

A very beautiful house between mountains and sea
A very beautiful house between mountains and sea
We recently stayed at Java Kai, not long after its renovation, and it is a very beautiful home in a truly spectacular location. The house itself (and Hale O'Bale next door) are true to the photos shown: two charming, lovely, wooden, very authentic Balinese houses that sit on a lovely, long wrap-around deck with a long and sweeping green yard that reaches all the way to the sea. Palm trees and an amazing rock wall line one side of the property. What the photos cannot adequately show is the sheer drama of the mountains and hills that rise to the right hand side of the property, and rise behind the house as well. It's really quite breathtaking. We loved every inch of the outdoor space. The two bedrooms below are beautiful, with gorgeous views from the private deck outside, so you can get away from others when you want privacy. But honestly, we all spent most of our time in the great room. The kitchen is fantastically appointed with every pan and serving dish you could need, and cooking there was a blast. The other terrific thing about Java Kai is it's prime location right on the ocean, close to everything. Go north and you're right at the stellar beaches of the North Shore. Go south, and you're right next to Kaneohe Bay, with Kailua and Lanaki beaches not far beyond. Great beaches are just a couple of minutes away on both sides of the house. Leilani was available 24/7 if we needed her, and her kindness and wish to make our stay memorable was palpable. She truly wants her guests to have a good time, and as we've rented many, many houses on vacations we know from experience this isn't always the case. This is an AUTHENTIC Balinese house as she states. There's something almost romantic about both the houses, because you can feel the handcrafted vibe right when you enter. But make no mistake this isn't a cottage, it's a very large, and lovely house, and for Oahu the price is extremely reasonable. If you're two couples or a family and you want a charming house to stay in for a good price right on the ocean, very close to all that the windward side of Oahu has to offer, stay at Java Kai.
