About Sonya Serene Property Manager

inventor, entrepreneur, avid swimmer, waterman, and traveler of the world

Sonya Serene Property Manager purchased this house in 2008

Why Sonya Serene Property Manager chose Hawaii Kai

I picked Portlock because when i was a little kid, i used to come here to fish, and fell in love with the quiet beauty of this idyllic, quaint, and charming place. A few years ago i purchased this home, not far from where i used to fish, and decided to remodel the back of the house to create a very large, 3400 sq ft deck with a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. The remodeling of the house was just completed with the construction of one of most expansive private decks in Hawaii for perfect outdoor living. You can still walk within a few minutes to great fishing, and diving around the corner.

What makes this house unique

You and your family will have a chance to enjoy the most amazing views and gorgeous sunset, on a great deck and at a location that is convenient, private, serene, and idyllic. you will be just minutes away from great diving, paddling, kayaking, snorkeling, banana boating, bumper tube, jet ski, parasail, wakeboard, scuba, and para sailing.

Perfectly located and spacious home with breathtaking views and an amazing deck.

  • 5 of 5

No house you rent is perfect. It just can't be, especially when it's a great rental that many people use. What makes up for this is owners/managers who respond to issues and fix them, fast. We only had a few minor ones: BBQ was out of propane. Sonya dropped one off in fifteen minutes to save dinner. Smoke alarms started to go off (two different ones on different days) both fixed before we returned home. As far as the house, it's really great! We had 10 people (6 adults, 4 kids) the room layout worked well for use (the guest house is a nice touch if you have grandparents!). The house is nicely appointed and very comfortable. The kitchen is big and has all the appliances you could want. The cookware (pans, etc) could use a refresh but we purchased a new non-stick pan and left it for future guests as our way of contributing to such a wonderful place. The deck is HUGE and has a big table + chairs. A lounger set and a bunch of sun-deck chairs. The pool is wonderful as well. The real feature is the location though. You're 20+ minutes (with traffic) from downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. Just far enough from the hustle and bustle to really enjoy the island. You are 5+ minutes from hanauma bay which was the most amazing place - great beaches and amazing snorkelling. You have food, gym, groceries all super close by. You can also go for a 30 minute drive to the white sand beaches in the windward side or the amazing lanikai pillbox hike with mind blowing views. I really can't say enough. We have been Maui fans for many years now and our previous Oahu trips yielded no change. This trip, with this house, has changed our view. We will be coming back - to this place - next year! A++

Pearl Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect.We had enough space for 7 adults. It was a first for our family to stay together in one home. It was a bitter/sweet experience as our major goal was to attend a special memorial service for my wife's father, who died in May at age 95. He was a Pearl Harbor survivor and in the Navy for 30 years. He wanted his entire family at the service and staying at this home worked very well for all of us.

Nice visit with 9 people that worked fine with the bedrooms. Great views. House manager was very accommodating. The kitchen lacked necessary supplies for that many guests but otherwise it was terrific - plenty of towels for bath and pool. Great access for Waikiki and the east side of the island.

Had a fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great stay at this beautiful property. We were getting married in Honolulu and had a bunch of our out of town guests stay here and it was perfect; everyone absolutely loved it and thought it was an awesome house that definitely lived up to everyone's expectations. The size of the indoor and outdoor space, the pool, the view, the great big kitchen, everything worked out really well for our group. We would definitely love to stay here again one day. Many thanks to the property manager for being very communicative and helpful before, during, and after our stay; she was really nice and was willing to do whatever she could to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

Beautiful Home and Views

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful with an amazing view of the Oahu coast. It fit our needs for a family of 7 adults and 7 kids. Definitely enough beds (and 1 crib) for a few more people to fit comfortably. Each room is clean and presentable with enough open space to let our little ones crawl around without issue. A/C, fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, and washer/dryer all worked perfectly.

The location is literally 5 mins from Hanauma Bay and on the side of the island where the beaches are not as crowded. There is a Zippy's, Fatboy's, Leonard's and Walgreen's in a plaza 5 mins from the house. Island traffic is an issue everywhere, but not to the point where getting to the airport, Pearl Harbor, or Waikiki will be more than a 40 min drive. North Shore and the Polynesian Cultural Center are about 1 hour away, but definitely worth going to as day trips.

As much as we loved the location and actual facilities, the one issue we had during our stay was with cockroaches. Several of the days we had to kill more than a couple in the kitchen. We contacted Sonya after our first night of roaches, and she was very quick to send someone to come and spray repellent the next day. We were told that it's an island challenge, and it's difficult to control. We took it in stride and kind of just dealt with it.

This easily could and should have been a 5 star stay. If they can get rid of those little pests, it certainly will be a great deal for the large group that decides to stay there.

Mahalo Sonya!

Owner's Response: Aloha Philip ! Thank you for your beautiful words and the honest feed back . We are constantly striving to keep the little buggers out but as you said correctly that the tropical island`s biggest challenge is our battle with these insects :) Please contact me whenever you plan to return to paradise & I will be happy to have you stay at The Sunset Villa again !

Amazing location, comfortable and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We used this house for a week-long meeting and team building event for 10 adults. The location was quiet, peaceful and had lots of space for work and play. The wifi was amazing and supported 7 computers online at the same time. We hired Chef Kimo Akamai to cater one meal a day for us; he definitely added quality to the week! The only downside was that only the half-bath has access from a hallway; the other bathrooms are only accessible through a bedroom. This probably wouldn't be a problem for a family, but it required negotiation for shower time among 10 adults. Nonetheless, we will return to this house if we schedule another meeting in Oahu. Mahalo!

I am happy that even though you were working the whole time you got to enjoy the Hawaiian Hospitality and got the unobstructed & unmatched ocean views ...sunsets & rainbows from the deck making work easier and more enjoyable :) I remember your main concern was the wifi speed and thanks to that request we now have perfect internet connection which we all can`t seem to do without in this day and age :) Would love to have you back whenever you decide to come back ! Mahalo for the wonderful review ! Sonya Serene
