"If you have a large group and are considering other rentals along Rt. 72, look no further than this home! Our group of ten was torn between renting a house with a beach view (while reading many reviews about how difficult it was to back out into highway traffic) versus this home with a pool, A/C, located in a quiet neighborhood for easy walks/runs and easy access to Rt. 72.
When we finally arrived (July '15), were so relieved we chose Melanie & Mike's property for our two week vacation! Not only are they fabulous hosts (as everyone else has mentioned), but this location is truly perfect and cannot be beat. We couldn't have imagined trying to back out into busy Rt. 72 highway traffic!
With the easy, flat walk to the local shopping center (w/ movie complex, restaurants, Walgreens, shaved ice/ice cream, salon/spa, etc.) to Costco's (10 minutes away), Hanauma Bay (five min. away), Waikiki 20 min. away - this home is perfectly situated. We also traveled a few times to the N. Shore (zip lining, Polynesian Center, etc.), and our location on the east side of Honolulu made our trip that much closer. You will also find the most beautiful beaches 10-15 minutes away to the east (we hired a photographer and shot a family photo on the beach - highly recommend!) As an added bonus, each room has its own A/C for individual control, which was an enormous benefit during our stay in July as it did get quite hot!
Melanie & Mike were a wealth of information and are so pleasant and kind. As all previous reviews have alluded, you cannot go wrong booking this property. For your generous hospitality, Melanie & Mike - mahalo! We hope to see you again in the future!"

"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."

"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!"
