Maili house description
CHECK OUT REDUCED RATES!!! This beautiful home is located on Maili Point, one of Oahu's most scenic sites. Maili Point is located on the dry and sunny west side of Oahu giving days of perfect weather, full of sunshine and trade winds. The property's secluded location provides a relaxing and peaceful setting. Once the main gate closes, the privileges of your own private beachfront home with unsurpassed views of one of Hawaii's most beautiful bays becomes apparent. Until 2003 the property was the beach home of a well known Hollywood leading actor who described Maili Point as his favorite spot on all the islands.
With its spectacular ocean and coastline views as well as unbelievably beautiful sunsets, you'll know you have found paradise! The beach is half sand and half reef which makes for lots of great surfing, bodyboarding, and snorkeling. In addition to the many tropical fish you are likely to spot sea turtles, dolphins and during the winter months whales playing in the waters just off shore. If you feel like exploring there are many beautiful sandy beaches nearby as well as numerous golf courses.
Waianae Marina just 10 minutes away offers fishing, snorkeling and dolphin expeditions as well as seasonal whale watching. The exquisite Ko'Olina resort is also just 10 minutes away and offers everything you'd expect from a first class resort. Separate detached guest house also available for rent for larger groups. For those who want to experience the ultimate vacation we can arrange for private chef and daily maid service. Call owner for details and pricing.

The property was great and the kids had a great time. Living and dining areas were great for our group of seven with plenty of sleeping space. There was laundry facilities which is a great asset with kids. It didn't take long to drive places, other than the traffic, which had nothing to do with the property. It was very peaceful in the morning to have coffee on the lanai and the first few mornings the waves were perfect for surfing. The shore was rough for the kids, but just used surf shoes. Top notch place and we would rent it again or refer others to this property. One small problem would be the bathtub needed resealing because they obviously had leak issues in the past.

We are from the mainland but visit Kauai 2-3 times a year because of family. This summer we did a short trip to Oahu for a friend's wedding at Ko'olina. This property is amazing! It's truly a secret gem in an unlikely area. It's off the main highway so if you look on Google Earth the location doesn't appear ideal. But it's so tucked away, once the gates close, you can't tell the main road is right outside. The entire property is fully gated. The yard is meticulously groomed. There is a large grassy area. We had 5 young children and felt safe letting them run around. The backyard lounge chairs (5 total) are modern and what you would find in a magazine. The house is beachfront. You go through a gate and right to the beach. The beach in front of the house is beautiful but not for little kids to swim in. It is rocky and has great shells to find. Makaha beach is about 10 mins away and a great beach for adults and kids. The house is beautifully decorated in a modern, Asian way. From the upstairs bedroom, you have views of palm trees upon waking up. The kitchen is modern with top of the line appliances. There is a dining table that seats 8 people. There is another smaller rental property above the garage that is within the gated grounds. We had a family of 7 in the main house and our friends who had 2 small kids stayed in the other property above the garage. It was a one bedroom, one bath place. Both families would get together for meals and hanging out. This place is about 10 mins north of Ko'olina. If you want a peaceful place that is truly "Hawaiian" then this is it at a great price compared to Ko'olina.

All we wanted and more

My son was headed to Afghanistan, so I wanted this chance to visit with him and his family without the noise and bustle of the touristy side of the island. I was blown away by the beautiful appointments and awesome kitchen. The house itself is older, but it is obvious that a lot of top notch upgrades have been performed; glass tile, Viking appliances, granite counters, and so much space inside and out. The chaise lounges (five of them) were the gathering spot for us all to watch the sun set, or lay out for a tan. The property is entirely fenced in with a security gate so it was like having your own private chunk of the island; you would think no one else was around for miles. The pictures do not even come close to showing the beauty of the inside of the home. To be fair, the neighborhoods are a bit daunting as you drive closer, and there was a bit of road noise, but I just let it mix with the sound of the ocean and it wasn't a bother. Once you see the actual property, much less enter the home, you will be blown away. Definitely would recommend to those wanting a quiet quality visit. You will want for nothing.

This place is truly Hawaii. I am tempted to leave a mediocre review so no one else discovers this small Eden but the host was so gracious and kind, I couldn't do that. This fabulous home was perfect for us. We are a family of grandparents, parents and two kids (8 and10). We never felt crowded, the beds were comfortable, the air conditioners kept the home cold, the kitchen had all you would need and the view???? My goodness! Ocean view as far as you can see, mountains to the right, surfers or paddle-boarders in the morning while you sip your Kona coffee, the kids would just walk down the little stairs and onto the water. The water right at the back there isn't ideal for swimming but just walk a little farther down and it gets much better. Every night my husband and I would shut off the air, open our screened balcony doors and have the waves lull us to sleep. In the morning, we would anxiously wait for the sun to peak over the mountains on the right and the sky would turn purple, maroon, and eventually the most celestial blue ever. Truly, it brought me to a place of eternal thankfulness to our Lord for such a glorious creation. There are a couple of great markets near by and our FAVE place was Mikes Bake Shop about 5 minutes towards the south. We walked around the local marina just north and every person we met was so nice and just incredible. NOT A single bad experience. We had our concerns about the area since I read some online reports about the neighborhood but I felt MUCH safer there than I do in Miami, where I was born and raised. It's about 45 minutes from honolulu. The bad side is that you will hit traffic going to and from the touristy areas on the east side. That said, I won't stay anywhere else and we covered that entire island. Gosh I miss that place. I think I'll cry myself to sleep now. One more thing, we call dibs for it in June!!

We recently stayed for two weeks at Hane I Lani Wai. The property and home exceeded our expectations. We realize now it's hard to capture the beauty of a home in a few photographs on a site but rest assured, it is fantastic. Our party consisted of 11 people staying in both the main house and the guest house over the garage. Our young children (8 and 5) loved having the run of the yard with many places to explore. There was ample space for all of us. The home is beautifully appointed too and very much captured the Aloha spirit. A lot of beach gear was available too including umbrellas, beach chairs, boogie boards etc. We were warmly welcomed by the property manager who takes very good care of the home. Fresh fruit on trees, the endless soothing sounds of lapping waves, the delightful birds and geckos all made this a memorable experience. The beach in front of the home is suitable for snorkeling (great for snorkeling) and swimming though water shoes are necessary due to the reef. Just a few steps away is a more sandy lagoon if you like wading into the water in bare feet. We really enjoyed watching surfers and spear fishing from the patio. Costco is conveniently just 15 minutes away as well as the lovely sandy beaches of Ko Ohlina. We really enjoyed living in a less touristy area as it often felt like we had the entire stretch of the beach in front of the house to ourselves. We cannot wait to return..but sadly we must. We are certain you will enjoy your stay here as well.
