                                This was a nice house, pretty clean - could have used a good dusting/deep clean - but felt quite lived-in and has a beautiful garden/yard. The Costco, Safeway & Longs were quite convenient. Was only about a 30 minute drive to Waikiki/Honolulu or Kailua. This is a great home base to drive from. The beach nearby, about a mile away, was sandy and beautiful but we were discouraged from getting in by the lifeguard. As it turned out, it's a fairly rough crashing wave area. Hanauma Bay is quite close too - just know that it costs $7.50 pp for entry and a dollar to park - and there weren't any fish to be seen, sadly disappointed. So the house is a great location, you'll need transportation because you're not downtown, but it's got a beautiful area to walk around, botanical gardens, and you can see the ocean.

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, people with disabilities, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                                Owner response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay here. Thanks for the info on the deep clean. We'll see that our crew does that better! It's true that Sandy Beach is for experienced swimmers, but the tide pools along the shore are excellent for little ones who just want to play in shallow water and see the little fish that swim there, protected from the surf. There's also a great "keiki" (children's) beach just 10 minutes down the road in Waimanalo, with gentle waves and soft sand. So glad you found the house convenient and the neighborhood beautiful. Come back and see us again!

                                We had a wonderful 10 days in Oahu and the Hawaii Kai location, layout and style was perfect for my wife and the other retired military couple that joined us. Close to the beach and Hanama Bay and outside of most of the Wakiki traffic was great. We chose the rental because we are very familiar with the island and love Oahu, but it is perfect for 2 couples or a family with older kids. The only upgrade we would make is to the double bed in the master suite.

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, sightseeing.

                                I rented this property while my mother was recuperating from a hospital stay. It was the perfect house. It is large enough to allow for space for everyone. The owner was a joy and very helpful about places to visit. Make sure to leave the screen doors closed as Hawaii has LARGE centipedes. I would highly recommend this property. It is located within a couple of miles of several really nice beaches. It is also about 3 miles from the shopping centers and COSTCO (the cheapest place in Hawaii). Nice quiet spot.

                                We loved this house. Very spacious, well kept and comfortable. Quiet, upscale neighborhood. Beautiful garden. The owners are lovely people, as are the neighbors. It is close to the beach but you will want a car as it is very suburban. Center city Honolulu is about a 25 minute drive. Hanaoma bay and koko crater are right nearby. Ideal for a family with children (such as ours). We would definitely stay there again.

While she lets you enjoy her home all to yourself, she will be happy to talk with you at length about her beautiful Hawaii, if you are so inclined.

                              Why the Owner Chose Hawaii Kai:
                              Lovely, quiet family neighborhood, tropical breezes, beautiful mountain, golf, ocean views, short walk to the beautiful Koko Head Botanical Gardens, where every type of Plumeria tree is on parade, gardening to her heart's content, yet close to shopping and easy to get into town. These are the reasons this place was the one for her.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              You'll love the corner lot with its space for children to run and play, its beautiful, tropical gardens (which Grammy will come by from time to time to water on a regular basis so you don't lose your blooms), and so close to everything you'd like to see or do. This is the best location you will find at this price.
