About Emmanuel Chen

I am a single father who found a way to spend alot of time with my son while making a living. I had no idea the two condos I had purchased before my son was born were zoned for vacation rentals. I believe we can make all the plans we want but the final outcome is up to God. I know many people may only visit Hawaii once in their lifetime and every minute of their time here is precious. I try to treat others as I would like to be treated.

I have gained some weight since that picture so I explain to people that I used to be a Chippendale's Dancer and now I am a Chips Ahoy Dancer! My son is a top student at the University of Hawaii and will be attending medical school when he graduates. He wants to be a top surgeon to help others....not for the moolah. In any of his endeavors he has tweaked a better way of doing things. If you stay here, thank you for helping to pay his tuition.

Emmanuel Chen purchased this condo in 1987

Why Emmanuel Chen chose North Shore Oahu

I am a realtor and brought my client to see this condo. The second I saw the ocean view I was in AWE. I told my client that if he didn't buy this place, I would. I am a man of my word but a lousy realtor. I bought more places than I sold my first year....just kidding.

What makes this condo unique

The screened-in patio is my favorite place to hang out. It feels like the whole beach belongs to you.

Close to the beach

  • 3 of 5

Pros - pool and beach at backdoor, screened in lanai, decent area with amenities close by, nice beaches, lots of snorkeling and beach toys available in condo, awesome to have laundry facilities, tables & chairs on beach are nice, great view, very friendly and helpful security man

Cons - pool area can be noisy (it didn't affect our stay) so if you want peace and quiet this might not be the best choice, sewer smell when windows open at night or any kind of an offshore breeze, floors sticky (could be due to salty sea air) but nothing a good cleaning with vinegar wouldn't fix, facility gym isn't the best.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Emmanuel was easy to work with for reservations, great communication.

Absolutely loved our stay here! It's truly "a home away from home"... plus beach and warm ocean!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure how we got this lucky! We booked the place one week prior our arrival to Oahu. Emmanuel was amazing to deal with. He was easy to reach by email, text or phone call.. he answered all my questions pretty much as soon as I had any :)

The place was just as it was described... and more... very spacious and clean. I was worried that there's no air conditioner, but not once I felt warm/hot while inside. There is always a nice breeze that keeps the place cool.

Kitchen has everything you need to cook and serve. My husband was very impressed by the frozen beer mugs!

King size bed, pillows and bedding... very comfortable and cozy. My husband has back problems... but didn't have any back pain in the morning (now he wants to get the exact mattress when we get

We didn't have any issues with drainage, as some people had mentioned. We must've been taking showers when no one else did, so it was fine :)

The building is in the perfect location if you want to explore the island. We could reach any beach we had in mind within 30 min to an hour drive.

We've used snorkelling supplies many times. There are plenty of other things for the kids, if you are a younger family..

Overall, amazing place for a good price!

Highly recommend!

Pat's was a Great Experience

  • 4 of 5

We found the reviews to be accurate. I will try and add a less common information.

We are a family of 5. 2 slept on the King size bed in the BR, another slept on a futon in the BR, and two slept on the hide-a-bed in the LR. Space was sufficient despite having 5 large suitcases and 5 carry-on's. We stayed in Waikiki the year prior in a condo that had two queen beds in the BR and a hide-a-bed in the LR and we found this was more crowded than Pats.

Everything we needed was there for cooking.

Beach towels were in short supply (3 of them), but a chance encounter with the cleaning lady fixed that. I was going to text Emmanuel, but she had things fixed before he knew about it :) If you are a large family, I suggest asking Emmanuel up front how many towels are available.

The beach on property is sparsely populated. There are minimal waves so good for young kids and you can snorkel. Emmanuel had the typical beach/sand toys at the suite. There were a couple life jackets too and some "floaty" toys.

There are fish and turtles in the water at Pats. If you are really into snorkeling it is worth the 30 minute drive to Shark's Cove because it is better (more fish). Shark's Cover is busy, get there early (around 8 am) before the crowds stir up the water. Some type of footwear to protect your feet from sharp rocks is a must at Shark's Cove. Flippers may not work as it is very shallow and you are often walking.

If you are into Boogie Boarding, the waves at Pats are likely too small for you. Malaekahana Beach Campground is a 10 to 15 minute drive North of Pat's with good wavers. There were 6 boogie boards at the suite when we stayed!

If you are into surfing, there isn't any surfing right at Pat's. You are a 30 minute drive from Sunset beach where there world class surfing. There are no surf boards in the suite. There were some stored on the north end of the property. I assume they belong to tenants, but I'm not sure Emmanuel has access to them.

There is a washer and dryer in Emmanuel's suite.

I was a bit concerned about lack of air conditioning......I'm always "hot". But this was not an issue. There was always a breeze while we stayed.

Enjoyed eating at Seven Brothers, Papa Oles, Domino's, Tita's Grill, Shrimp Truck, Fruit Stands, etc. All are within 10 minute drive.

Hauula Loop Trail is close by, easy, and a great way to stay out of the sun if you get burnt :) Also enjoyed Kammieland Trail for views and pillboxes!
