Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Aloha! Lynn and I purchased Hale Hawaii Kai in June of 2005. I had rented the house since March of 2000. I started the gardening immediately and once I purchased the house put the lanscaping in HIGH GEAR. We also added a pool. I have photos of Lynn on the excavator digging the pool...she is good! We renovated the entire property inside and out: paint, cabinets, eaves, bathrooms and wardrobes. This property is the LOVE OF MY LIFE, next to Lynn! We enjoy our guests' holidays almost as much as they do. We enjoy taking them surfing, kayaking and hiking.
Why the Owner Chose Honolulu: I have a very flexible schedule which allows me to manage the vacation rental, I have traveled extensively and enjoying meeting people from around the world. When guests have an interest I take them sight seeing or shopping around the island.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Besides being a beautiful place to have a wedding or reception, this property is ideally located, close to Waikiki but not in the busy downtown area. We have incredible views, warm water, restaurants and activities close at hand. Famous Hanauma Bay is just 2 minutes away. There are beautiful cliffs to climb and great surf just 1 minute from the front door! Walking in the neighborhood you will see some of the most beautiful homes on the island.
