  • Great vacation rental

    "Our group of nine adults was extremely please with our rental of Helen's Beach House. The local was great-just as described. We enjoyed walking on the beach and also walking to the stores in Kailua Town-about 1 mile away. The listing photos were accurate-no unpleasant surprises. The house is spacious, clean and well maintained. Ingrid and Debra were very responsive to our questions and needs. I would recommend this property to family and friends."

  • ko'olina villas

    "Our stay at the villas was very pleasant. The facility was very nice and we had all the needed supplies while their. I only wish the hot tub and pool stayed open past 9 o'clock at night. By the time we got back to the villa it was too late to sit in the hot tub. We would of liked to enjoy that more. I don't feel the ocean view described in the listing was accurate. The view was not wat the picture showed. I think it was the same view just zoomed in on a camera. The facility we were in was cleaned ok on the surface however the cabinets could of used some wiping out. The fridge had the seal coming off the bottom and a couple of the cabinets were loose on there hinges. All in all the facility was nice and check in and out was easy. I would come back and stay here again even though I am not a big fan of O'ahu (Honolulu mainly, too crowded). It did not take much to walk to the lagoons and they were awesome. The Monkey pod is a fun upbeat restaurant so that was pleasant to eat at. I loved our stay just minor issues nothing that can't be fixed easily. Thanks to the owner who made it so easy."

  • Beautiful Location

    "My fiancé and I stayed here for four days during our ten day trip to Oahu. We absolutely loved our little home here. The owners of the property live on the property, but we rarely saw them. They are super hospitable and brought us eggs from their chickens which live on site. We heard them occasionally in the morning, but for the most part, we didn't notice them. Pros: Lovely location - use to be a botanical garden Lots of kitchen supplies and fully operational kitchen Cable and wireless internet Beach gear available Washer and dryer Pool Unique and lovely location to explore Lovely loft to sleep Cons: Fruit flies because of all the fruit trees on the property - definitely keep the screens closed Gate the must be manually opened and closed when driving into the property We loved our stay here and I highly recommend it!"

  • Excellent Location! Walking distance to Malls and the Hilton Hawaiian Village

    "We stayed here December 30, 2013 to January 08, 2014 and we loved the location! Walking distance to one of the biggest mall in Hawaii. Very close to the Hilton Hawaiian Village and also the Convention centre and near the Beach. The 2 bedrooms are huge in size and each one has a full washroom. The main washroom is not a full washroom, Though wish it was. Kitchen is very, very small. We only made breakfast there daily. Only a Mini Fridge in the Kitchen which was a disappointment. The place is a little outdated, Needs a little freshening up. Over all We would definitely rent this place and still would highly recommend it to anyone!"

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.
