About Hernando C.
Grew up in the Orient and educated in Catholic schools and worked for a major bank in Hong Kong. Self employed since leaving the financial institute in '64. Came to beautiful Hawaii in '74. Visited France, Italy, Spain and Portugal in '06 and '07 with my wife and granddaughter.
Hernando C. purchased this House in 1988
Why Hernando C. chose Hawaii Kai
Due to its seclusiveness and spacious dining and living areas and a huge bedroom with 30' ceiling, it was a no brainer to sell our former moderate sized home for this one.
What makes this House unique
Enjoy and exercise in the private fresh water pool (15' X 30') depth (3' to 7') warmed by the tropical sun. Tan or relax on lounge chairs around the spacious pool deck.

The property is beautiful. It’s at the end of a street, and very quiet. We enjoyed the yummy treats!
A quiet, wonderful stay on Oahu
Seabreeze was the perfect getaway for our first family trip to Hawaii. It’s located at the very quiet end of a street and surrounded by lush green mountains.
From the beginning, Hernando and Paulette were wonderful hosts. The evening we arrived Oahu was experiencing heavy rains and flash flooding, and before our plane landed we had already heard from them via phone message and email, asking us to be very careful on the drive over with our rental car. When we arrived late at night, Hernando was out waiting for us with a flashlight and umbrella to guide us in and help with the luggage.
A couple of weeks before our trip, we reached out to ask if some changes could be made to the regular cleaning routine before we arrived to accommodate for some environmental allergies. Our hosts were very understanding and ensured that was taken care of. They were also more than willing to offer suggestions for restaurants and family activities for our stay. And they were right on all accounts! During the trip I was sick for a few days and Hernando checked in a few times and provided advice on local healthcare options if needed. So kind!
The downstairs area we occupied was very clean from the beginning and very quiet throughout our stay. Also, it was very nice to have control over the amount of light in the place, especially for the first few days as our jet-lagged bodies were catching up.
The residence had everything we needed during our stay, especially the blender, which was used for smoothies at least twice a day (hope we didn’t disturb you folks!). We needed to do a few loads of laundry while there and the cycles were fast and the machines were easy to use.
The pool was VERY full after the rainfall but the water was still crystal clear. The property description indicates the pool isn’t heated, but the Oahu sun kept it more than warm enough for us. Also, our 11yo was amused by the automated pool vacuum occasionally “sneak attacking” us as we sat on the pool deck. We were often accompanied by a red dragonfly hovering over the pool or the occasional brown anole and its cousins basking in the sun as we relaxed or played.
Having rented a car, it was very easy for us to get to Costco, Safeway, or Walgreens, (and the Leonard’s Bakery Malasada Truck) in about five minutes, and then return to our quiet getaway.
Thank you Hernando and Paulette for being such wonderful hosts. We highly recommend Seabreeze for a stay on Oahu!

Beautiful house, very nice owners
The guest house is beautiful and very clean.
Thanks for your nice & short review. Hope you will come back soon.
High quality residence
This apartment is maintained to a high standard and is exceptionally clean and well appointed. The owners also go that little bit extra in terms of welcoming you with a few treats. My only slight disappointment is that the pictures are classic "real estate" and not therefore "real". I had a feeling that was the case when viewing the property on the web, and so it proved. This property has two excellent very large firm beds with high quality linen and one single bed of far lower quality. It is exceptionally quiet being right at the dead end of the road.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Please enlighten me why the photos did not portrait what you expected so that I can make improvements for our future guests.
The property is clean, with all the extras: nice owners, nice welcome package and nice parking.
A couple of minor issues were solved immediately when brought to the attention of the owner. We like it so much,we have signed up for a third year.
Thank you very much for your review this will help me to grow the vacation rental business during this year and next. I look forward to your next visit.
Very quiet and relaxing
Since this location is the last house at the top of the road and right below the rain forest in Hawaii Kai, it is a very quiet peaceful location. It was fantastic waking up to the lovely sounds of all the birds. The backyard by the pool was not only quiet, but also private. We felt so calm without having to sit beside someone at the hotel resorts or listen to all the happy children screaming their joyful words. The location was perfect, being only 12-17 minutes away from a fantastic beach to watch the locals in the surf, hike the Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse Trail and swim in gorgeous tide pools, and Hanauma Bay for snorkeling. The whole Hawaii Kai area as well as the neighbourhood felt extremely safe and a place that one could see themselves living. Safeway and Costco were only 8 minutes away and Whole foods is 20 minutes away. The occasional rain shower (since being so high and near the rain forest) was a welcome relief to a full day in the sun.
The owners were very prompt to answer any questions as they live right above your suite. But honestly we hardly even knew they were there. You can tell they have been doing this for awhile because anything you might need is already in the site.
We would recommend this suite to everyone and will definitely stay here again.
