Recent Oahu reviews

  • Excellent vacation over New Years Holiday

    "First, I would note that the descriptions on the internet were 100% accurate, we had no surprises. The house was very nicely furnished, though as other reviewers noted, the living room furniture looked nicer than it was to use, and some of the dining room chairs are beginning to sag, but these were minor points. The three bedrooms and the two bathrooms were very comfortable. We never turned on the air conditioners, since the weather was so nice the ceiling fans and windows were all we used. The kitchen had all we needed for cooking a couple of meals, and the grill was nice to have as well. The house had bikes, beach gear and snorkeling gear to borrow which was a very nice addition as well. Other reviewers noted problems with the internet, but we had none. We didn't have any need to contact the office so I can't comment on their support, but the reservation process was very well handled. Finding the turn-off onto Ke-Iki Road was a bit tricky, suggest you try to find it the first time in the daytime. We also enjoyed being walking distance to Foodland and their coffee shop, as well as the Shark's Cover Grill food truck next door to the Foodland was convenient. All in we felt great value for the money, a awesome location you can sit four hours and watch the waves come into the beach and crash into the rocks."

    "The house and property are beautiful and so close to the beach. The room has limited floor space for suitcases and the closet has a tiny opening but everything else is very efficient, including drawers beneath the bed. We stayed here prior to a business meeting in Honolulu and I am so glad we chose to visit Waimanalo first."

  • Lovely Home

    "Just stayed at this place with my three, hard to impress, pre-teens and we totally enjoyed the house! The house was so clean and spacious and we were provided with everything we needed. I loved that everything was nearby and when we were missing an ingredient, Safeway was just 5 minutes away. Cooking was a breeze because the kitchen was so spacious. There was a separate dining area, but more often than not, we opted to eat outdoors and enjoy the views. All the girls wanted to do was go to the beach. Easy enough - Waikiki was 15 minutes away, Ala Moana Beach Park was 10 minutes away, Kailua was 20 minutes. A different beach experience each time. And when we didn't feel like cooking, Downtown Honolulu has some great boutique restaurants to try, thanks to the recommendations of the owner. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we are already planning our return trip during Christmas vacation and we will definitely stay at this beautiful house again!"

  • LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!

    "I stayed there the entire month of June and enjoyed every day waking up to beautiful views of the mountains and the ocean from the 16th floor. The unit was spacious and comfortable with plenty of towels and linens, even some beach chairs and boogie boards. The kitchen had everything you could want and we cooked quite a few meals even though the best restaurants are within walking distance. Cheeseburgers in Paradise was being completely remodeled downstairs so I didn't get to eat there but I'm sure it will be great when finished. The covered parking space was fantastic and the entire building was secured with onsite security guards that were very friendly. Safe swimming areas are right across the street and the famous Waikiki beaches with every water activity you could want is a 2 minute walk. The property manager who checked us in was extremely friendly and helpful, and the owners called to make sure all was OK during the stay. I would rent this wonderful condo again if I have a chance. On a very minimal note I hope there would be a new mattress and blinds in the bedroom since both were past their prime. If you want a great Waikiki experience then this is the place for you!"

Oahu Travel Tips

Oahu is known in Hawaiian as “the gathering place” for a reason. It’s the most developed of the isles and full of excitement, people to meet and experiences to be had.

In Oahu there’s as much to enjoy outdoors as there is indoors, so no matter the weather, you’re sure to have an amazing time. Days can be filled swimming in the sun-warmed waters offnear any number of beaches, trekking through a forest path to take in views of the mountains or trying the different flavors of the local eateries.

Oahu boasts bustling city life as well as laid-back rural living, so whether you’re looking for a piece of the action or hoping to slow down for a little while, Oahu delivers. In any case, you're sure to feel like you’re spending time in paradise with the amazing tropical climate and shimmering blue water as far as the eye can see.

Things to Do in Oahu

- Makapuu Point Light: If you’re fascinated by lighthouses, check out Makapuu Point Light, which has the largest lens of any lighthouse in the United States. In 1977, it was listed in the National Register is Historic Places. You can also trek along the Makapuu Point trail where you’ll see breathtaking views of Oahu’s southeastern shoreline. The lighthouse itself creates a picturesque scene with its red roof against the blue sea.

- Pearl Harbor: To witness the location of the infamous attack during World War II, visit Pearl Harbor. It’s a lagoon harbor off the coast of the island and the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet. In remembrance of December 7, 1941, the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri battleships have been memorialized. Climb aboard to experience what it was like on a ship during the second world war. There’s also a museum providing history and details about Pearl Harbor.

- Polynesian Cultural Center: Experience life like a local at the Polynesian Cultural Center, a living museum in Laie on the northern shore of Oahu. The center is spread over 42 acres where you can see a real luau and thrill over the annual World Fire Knife Dance competition, in which contestants show off their skills with blazing swords. You can also take a canoe ride, see a show and learn about different villages' cultures.

- Pali Lookout: Take the 5-mile drive northeast of downtown Honolulu to Pali Lookout where panoramic views of the Koolau cliffs and Windward coast greet you. The city slowly disappears and nature takes it place, transporting you to a tranquil and serene setting. Gaze around and enjoy the natural sights as stress slowly melts away with each breath of fresh air you take.

- Lanikai Beach: A trip to Oahu certainly means spending time on the beach, and Lanikai Beach is a perfect option. The half-mile shore is considered one of the best beaches in the world. During the weekdays the sand is relatively empty, so there will be plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the water views and warm sand.

- Honolulu Botanical Gardens: Enjoy more of Oahu’s natural beauty at the Honolulu Botanical Gardens, which is open all year long except for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Stroll through the different settings and appreciate native flowers and plants at the various green spaces: Foster Botanical Garden, Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden, Koko Crater Botanical Garden, Lili’uokalani Botanical Garden and Wahiawa Botanical Garden.

Shopping and Dining on Oahu

- Alan Wong’s Restaurant: Enjoy a true taste of traditional Hawaiian cuisine at Alan Wong’s. The ethnic roots of Hawaii inspire his dishes that feature native flavors and locally grown produce and ingredients. From the meal options to the service and everything in between, you’ll experience life like a local.

- Waikiki Beach Walk: The Waikiki Beach Walk is the largest development in the area to date and has grown into a gathering place for both natives and visitors alike. Here you can experience a multitude of shops, restaurants and on more than 8 acres. There are more than 40 retailers in the open-air, two-level center as well as a variety of tasty eateries where you can refuel and enjoy a meal.

- Royal Hawaiian Center: The Royal Hawaiian Center provides you with 310,000 square feet of space to indulge in a little (or a lot!) of retail therapy. The center boasts more than 110 shops and restaurants in three four-tiered buildings. You’ll find everything from designer labels to adorable souvenirs to help you remember your trip forever. Other shops include craft, jewelry and surf shops.
