"We are a party of three - father, mother and thirteen year old son from the UK and this was our second visit to Oahu and I have to say it was the perfect accomodation choice. Hawaii Kai is close enough to Honolulu to be easy to see the sites but still in a quiet relaxing vallley if you don't want the hussle of a big city.
The location in quiet Hawaii Kai was perfect for relaxing and acted as a great base for exploring as it was only a short drive to Diamond head, Waikiki or even back to the windward coast. I would say that having a car is essential to get the best from this location. The local beachs are bueatiful but there are so many different kinds of beaches to explore on Oahu you should really be prepared to travel around.
We spent 7 nights in the extremely well equipped condo which has all the amenities you need for a relaxed stay with comfortable beds and good quality furnishings and appliances. The kitchen is well equipped and we prepared some meals ourselves in the unit as well as dining out.
The owners live on site but are not obtrusive and we met Hernando a couple of times in the garden and had an enjoyable covnversation in which he always had good advice about places to visit. The owners have included many things to help make your stay more comfortable including beach equipment which came in very handy when we went to the Nortth Shore.
they alos left us Coffee, Water, Sweet Bread and choclates aas a welcome package which just goes to show how thoughtful they are in looking after their guests.
The condo itself is clean and well maintained with good quality furniture and appliances. The only thing missing is a dishwasher but I guess this is down to space requirements and no one minds washing a few dishes by hand. The air conditioning in the unit is very effective and kept the temperature very comfortable during the day.
However, the jewel in the crown for this unit is the use of the private pool which is wonderful and set in lovely gardens. We found the water very warm to swim in July and extremely refreshing after a hot afternoon shopping or sunbathing and this makes what is already a good rental into a really great one for us.
Hernando and Paulette are wonderful hosts we will definitely be coming back here next time we visit Oahu."

"The best VRBO we've ever stayed in. Beautiful views, right on the water. We could have spent our whole vacation just lying on the hammock, or sitting on the swing looking at the water. We saw sea turtles, dolphins, and even a whale breaching far off shore. Having our own hot tub on our deck was wonderful. We loved snorkeling right on our own beach in a calm area protected from big waves. Our kids loved the swings and treehouse. Everything on the island can be reached within about an hour. Laycie and Mike were welcoming, friendly, and very helpful during the week. This property is ideal for families, with a full kitchen, washer and drier, hot tub, snorkeling gear, and boogie boards. If your kids like to swim in big waves, don't miss Waimanalo Beach, just a 2 minute drive away."

"I was nervous since there is limited photos of the property, but it was nice!
We were a group of 8, on island for a conference, it was nice to have a house instead of a hotel room to relax in and come and go as we want!
Everything was where we expected, a boogie board or 2 were broken, but still had 4 to take with us to the beach! And snorkel gear!!!
We enjoyed our stay!"

"We just returned from a beautiful, relaxing vacation at this “Aloha” spirit home. The house is in a perfect location (an easy drive away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, an easy drive from the beautiful beaches on the way to the North Shore). This house is lovely, warm, and inviting; it is comfortable and absolutely a place to relax and rejuvenate. We had three families living in the house and there was plenty of room and there was no feeling of being crowded.
Edgar is a terrific host. He provided us with tips and information about places to go and beaches to see. Everything he suggested turned out to be wonderful. Lynn is friendly and a delight to chat with. We enjoyed several talks with Edgar and Lynn and they are truly gracious, friendly hosts.
We can, without any hesitation, highly recommend this home to anyone who wants a fantastic, beautiful, wonderful place to relax when visiting Ohau."
