Hawaii VacationGuest comment entered by owner
Hi, Meredith Thank you so much for such a magic place to stay while we were in Hawaii. The family loved the place and it really did feel like our own private resort. The location is fabulous and we all made the most of the morning walk to enjoy coffees at the hotel up the road, our shopping visits to whole foods, and the easy accessibility to all the other sights on offer. The family are now back in their respective countries dotted round the world and we look forward to repeating the experience in the near future. Warm Regards Christine

Home from Hawaiian Vacation
Dear Meredith We are home from our Hawaiian Vacation and wanted to thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful home. It was just perfect for our group and we loved how spacious it was. We loved the private yard and pool and the location (quiet yet so close to the highways). We have stayed in numerous rentals and by far your home has the best supplied kitchen we have every had. If we ever have the opportunity to go back to Oahu and need the larger space we would not hesitate to rent your home again. Thanks once again it was a pleasure working with you. Rod, Deb and extended family.

My family and I stayed at this rental property for 18 days total and truly enjoyed every waking moment. There were 12 of us total (9 adults and 3 children), and we never once felt crowded. The pool was such a nice touch. Although we spent most of our time exploring the island and the most amazing beaches ever, we still enjoyed coming home and dipping in the pool. The Kahala area is one of the most prestigious in all of Honolulu; a famous actor from the hit show Hawaii Five-0 previously lived at this property. There is so much to do in and around the area. Meredith was amazing to work with; she always responded to our calls and emails right away. The house is well maintained and the pictures do not do justice. I can honestly say anyone staying at this property will be delighted!! My family and I are already discussing our next trip to Hawaii!!!

Family Vacation and Wedding Getaway
Family Vacation and Wedding Getaway
My husband and I stayed at this home with our immediate families as we all traveled to Hawaii for our beach wedding. Everything was more beautiful than expected. The location of the home is fantastic with shopping mall just a 3 minute drive away with restaurants, major department stores and a convenient drug store. There are also various grocery stores nearby as well. Easy access to the interstates for sightseeing and close to Waikiki. The property is very clean and very well maintained. Meredith and her property manager were so great to work with and very prompt in answering needs and questions. The open layout of the home is so nice with the sliding doors to the lanai. Everyone enjoyed the pool which one may think who needs a pool in Hawaii but after a long hot day at the beach or site seeing it is quite refreshing. There is the beach and a park just a short 5 minute walk away, though I do recommend water shoes if you plan to go in the water here. Overall our stay here was outstanding and will be a wonderful part of our memories as we look back on this trip. All of our family members thoroughly enjoyed themselves as well. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! We hope to come back and stay again!!!

Kahala at it's best
Kahala at it's best
This a beautiful house in a quiet convenient neighborhood. Easy on and off the freeway for island excursions out of town, and close to Waikiki Beaches by way of a scenic drive. Hale Aukai is a classy remodeled comfortable Hawaiian home. Kitchen and bathrooms are appointed with quality fixtures and amenities. Bedrooms are clean freshly painted and airy with ceiling fans and great exposure to the beautiful gardens. Beds and furnishings are comfortable and elegant, with walk in closets, plentiful drawer and side table space. Accessory furnishings, like lamps, mirrors, vase, day beds and fold out sofas add style and practicality. The greatroom style living space had plenty of comfortable couches, dinning for 8-10, and best of all a sunroom and lanai directly adjacent. Breakfast was enjoyed outside everyday on the lanai and dinner was served nightly. Both while enjoying the outdoors and being inside at the same time. The backyard was just as special. With a quality stainless steel grill and chaise lounge,it was easy to relax while grilling. The pool, big enough to swim laps added to the day for relaxing or fitness. Overall the 9 members of my family felt lucky to have stayed in such a comfortable and beautiful home.

A wonderful week of family time!
A wonderful week of family time!
Our family stayed on this wonderful property in February 2012. Our ages ranged from 4 1/2 to 83 as we represented 4 generations of our family. The home was everything it promised to be and the yard and pool were in constant use. The kitchen is extremely well appointed and well laid out, the great room and dining room were beautiful and opened directly onto the lanai when you slid the beautiful pocket doors all the way in. The master suite is pure luxury, and the other rooms were comfortable. We enjoyed the WiFi use and never even turned on the TV! The handbook provided gives a wealth of information about the home and the area around it. We enjoyed many expeditions - Hanauma Bay, Pearl Harbour, Diamonhead, Wakiki, etc. and they were all easy to get to from the house. All of us had a great time. Meredith and Matthew have done a great job with the home itself, on the handbook and in replying to any questions we had immediately. We would happily stay there again in a heartbeat!

My family and I loved our stay in this beautiful decorated balinese style home. It was a perfect place for my MIL's 75th birthday get-away. The home is clean, well-maintained and fully stocked with all the conveniences of home, and more. Plenty of linens, pillows, hairdryers, etc...and each room had beach bag and beach towels. We loved that the large master bedroom had its own wing. There was plenty of space for our 8 guests. The rooms and beds were very comfortable. There was docking station in the living room so we could play music from our iPhone. My husband was able to connect to the internet and get some work done in the office. The house layout is amazing with more than 30 feet of doors/screens that disappear to create a huge indoor-outdoor area. The backyard is a nice peace of quiet heaven, a perfect place for lounging. Pool toys, lounge chairs, and a hammock were provided. I grilled some mahi mahi on the BBQ and it worked great. We had small children with us, so we had to keep an eye on them at all times when playing by the pool, since the it was not fenced. Also, the house is not air-conditioned, but there are plenty of ceiling fans, and if they are all going, you can get a nice breeze throughout the house. The house is located in a beautiful neighborhood on a quiet cul-de-sac. It's so nice that a Bank of Hawaii commercial was being filmed at a neighbor's home during our stay. There's a Wholefoods nearby, but very pricey (even more than on the mainland). I recommend the nearby KCC farmer's market on Saturday morning for fresh produce and local treats. I also, highly recommend getting dessert from the bakery at the Diamond Head Market & Grill on Monsarrat. The cheesecake was so good, we went back for more the next day. I liked that the house was away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, but only a 10 minute drive if we wanted to do some sight seeing. My niece and her boyfriend went for a run one morning from the house all the way to the top of Diamond Head. The owner was very helpful and responsive to all my emails. I HIGHLY recommend this place, if you want to be away from the busy city and have all the comforts of home.

Christmas and New Year Getaway in Oahu
Christmas and New Year Getaway in Oahu
My husband and I recently vacationed at this beautiful property in south Honolulu for the holidays. What a lovely home! We could not ask for a better location - it was a quick walk to the beach, a couple miles to Diamond Head, and a 10 minute drive to the fun of Waikiki Beach. Kahala Resort is also close by (hint: they have a great brunch menu). This house is fully furnished with amenities that made our stay very comfortable - washer/dryer, towels, a kitchen stocked with pots, pans, cooking utensils, etc. There is also a gas BBQ in the backyard. We really enjoyed the house's open layout - the living room opens right into the patio, which made it easy to take advantage of the pool and lovely backyard area! Lastly, it is in a safe and quiet cul-de-sac, so a great location if you have children. I highly recommend this rental and look forward to returning soon!!
