Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This large, beautiful, Hawaiian home is located in a prestigious east Honolulu neighborhood. It is a huge, tropically-landscaped lot with a heated, tiled, blue bottom swimming pool. The house is fully furnished as the owner lives there part of the year. All amenities are included. We provide all your soaps, shampoo, cream rinse, laundry soap and dish soaps. We are trying to save you money on baggage so you don't have to check your luggage.

We are in Hawaii Kai close to Hanauma Bay. We are about 20 minutes from Waikiki and about 30 minutes from HNL. The Koko Marina is a block and ½ away and has an 8 Plex Movie Theatre with Stadium Seating, Foodland Grocery Store, Starbucks, Subway, 24 Hour Fitness and a number of other restaurants and shops. Costco, Safeway, Longs and Ross are also close by.

The house easily accommodates two families with separate living areas. The house has 2 living rooms, one downstairs with a queen bed and one upstairs with a king bed. The master bedroom has a king bed and a large separate dressing area and bathroom. One bedroom downstairs has 2 queen beds, two others have one queen bed each and another has a twin day bed with a twin trundle. We also have a full size crib and a pack and play.

The swimming pool is heated by solar panels and is beautiful. Half the pool is quite shallow so it is the perfect pool for small children. The pool is fenced and attached to the house for

your private use.

We have 4 televisions and DVD players. There are games for the whole family, cribbage, dominos, Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit, and others.

About Melanie Fox

We are a retired professional couple. We love having our large extended family visit us and know you will enjoy staying here too.

Melanie Fox purchased this house in 1999

Why Melanie Fox chose South Oahu

We love this area for it's beauty and access to the ocean. It is so close to everything we need yet tropical and remote feeling. Hanauma Bay Beach Park is .4 miles from our door. It is the most popular visitor attraction on Oahu. It is always a fantastic day of snorkeling there. The bay in front of our house is perfect for Paddle Boarding and Kayaking. The Koko Marina Shopping Center is about 2 blocks away (walking distance) and has everything you could need. There is a Foodland Grocery Store, Starbucks, Jamba Juice, 24 Hour Fitness, Gas Station, Nail Salon, and Movie Theatre. There are are a 1/2 dozen Restaurants too.

What makes this house unique

You will love the sounds of morning birds and the smell of Plumera Blossoms when you wake up here. And you can grab a Mango from the tree for a Tropical Smoothie. Take a leisurely walk on the beautiful quiet streets in the neighborhood with the most incredible view of Diamond Head.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Melanie:

We had such a great time in Hawaii and thoroughly appreciated staying at your home, especially with all of the kind, friendly, generous, warm interactions with you and Mike. The welcome visit was really awesome (yes, even seniors use that term) and the daily interactions with you made us feel like ohana. You gave us privacy, helped when we needed it and were good neighbors. Your rental home was superbly furnished. I was thrilled to find a rolling pin so I could make my pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving dinner.

We did not leave anything in the clothes dryer and it was so kind of you to offer to return anything we left behind.

Aloha to you two,

Betty (back in cold Seattle)

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at Melanie's house! You really only need to bring your clothes, the house has everything else!! Plenty of space for everyone to relax and so much to do close by the house. We used the produced snorkel equipment to go to Hanauma Bay a few times. I can't say enough good things about this house, we're already planning another trip next year!!

Perfect house for family reunions or large groups

  • 5 of 5

Can't fault this property. Location is ideal for accessing all Oahu has to offer. Really close to a selection of beaches, blowhole, Koko Crater walk, lighthouse, spitting cave, China Walls & the most spectacular side of the island. Close enough to Waikiki for the fun stuff, but far enough to escape the hustle & bustle when required. Local shops, Safeway & Costco made for cheap and easy catering, but also restaurants near by for that night out. 10 minutes from Chiefs Luau, no need to travel. House itself had everything - pool, BBQ, well equiped kitchen. Our group of 14 had plenty of space. Enough beds and bathrooms to never feel crowded. Owners very easy to deal with, someone was near by if we needed help with anything, but stayed out of our way if we didn't. We would definitely stay again if we were to find ourselves on Oahu.

Just pack your clothes

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodations there was only 6 of us but if my entire family could have made the trip (11 total) there would have been plenty of room you'll need nothing but your clothes the house is completely stocked to meet all your needs ( boogie boards snorkel gear strollers umbrellas) it's all there. Kids loved the pool but some beach access just down the street. Port Lock was a great location for us and easy drive to many popular outings Thanks Melanie and Mike for the lovely accommations and your friendliness Really made for a great holiday

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

As my son said, "This was the best vacation ever", and this is in great part to the perfect home of Mike and Melanie's! The location in Hawaii Kai on Portlock was so refreshing being out of Waikiki. We had 11 family members ranging from 18 to 82 staying together and the layout was perfect. My brother loves to cook and was so impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked with pots, pans and utensils, not to mention glasses and plates. There were ample towels for indoors and out, beach chairs, ice chest, snorkeling gear and boogie boards. I forgot how muggy it can be so it was nice to be able to sit outside for a bit, but then go into the air conditioned house to cool off. Our favorite time was sitting by the pool first thing in the morning, having coffee and smelling the plumerias.

I can't recommend staying here enough! Melanie and Mike are fantastic owners

What An Amazing House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home last month for our much over-due family vacation – for 10 amazing days!!! And we couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. There were 11 of us - more than enough room for our family to kick back and relax. The rooms were very comfortable and the house is decorated beautifully. The house is clean, spacious and fully stocked for everything we needed – ALL the comforts of home. Overall it completely enhanced our vacation experience. The house is located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. And the kids loved the swimming pool.

The owners, Melanie & Mike, are so caring – always offering suggestions and vacation tips to our family. They anticipated all of our vacation needs and do a great job ensuring guest comfort and safety. There was a small tropical storm one evening and they brought over candles & flashlights – now that’s 5 star service!!

Melanie & Mike - Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family and for helping us create wonderful memories!

Highly recommended and would suggest this particular house to anyone of our friends and families.

Paradise for a week!

  • 5 of 5

How do you talk about the property without talking about the island? I will try. First of all, Melanie was so kind and generous to us. She provides all the staples guests need to begin their visit. This gets you going until you can make a trip to the grocery store. Next, all of her suggestions were so valuable. She was so correct in the activities and parks and beaches. We did attend the Chief's Luau on Melanie's suggestion, and it was outstanding! The girls enjoyed all the cultural activities and the hula lessons. The dancing was spectacular. Oh, I almost forgot! We had fresh mango, pineapple, and grapes awaiting us upon our arrival. Melanie has a mango tree on the property, and we could go outside and pick the freshest mangoes and the best tasting - nothing like we get in Georgia. Having the pool was a plus. The girls could swim after coming in from one of our excursions, and they thoroughly enjoyed this. We all had comfortable bedrooms. Having a washer and dryer helped with not having to pack so many clothes! The kitchen is set up so we could all maneuver around. The kitchen materials are top notch. Melanie has it outfitted for every cooking style. We did go snorkeling, and Melanie has all the equipment needed. We did not have to rent anything for this fun activity. We used the coolers and chairs, and even her roomy beach bags came in handy. There were 9 of us - 6 adults and 3 children. This was a vacation of a lifetime, and I am sure we will be talking about this paradise for years to come! Thank you to Melanie and all that you did for us!
