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 South Oahu

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.

Incredible Views!

  • 5 of 5

The early morning rainbows and the evening sunsets were fantastic. The views of Diamond head and Honolulu were beautiful. The pool and deck were well maintained. All we needed was more sunshine. We had showers nearly every day during our week's stay (but those morning showers produced the most beautiful rainbows I've ever seen). The home was very comfortable, clean and well supplied with the essentials such as paper products, cleaning products etc. The only inconvenience was that the detached bedroom had no window covering and was lacking in privacy for my son and his wife who stayed in that room. Looking back, I wish I had notified Sonja and I'm sure she would have supplied the necessary covering because she was very accommodating about arrival times and check out times, and responded to all my questions and inquiries within minutes. (Sorry Steve and Rachel) The house is located in a quiet upscale neighborhood within walking distance to the China wall where people gather each evening to enjoy the beautiful sunsets, but not better than those from our deck ;-) It is close to shopping centers, restaurants and Hanauma Bay. A short ride takes you to Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head or Wakiki Beach all of which were on our to do list. The only thing I could ask for was more sunshine, but that wasn't included in the rental.

Beautiful views, but...

  • 3 of 5

The views of Diamond Head across Maunalua Bay and the evening sunsets are spectacular. We loved the local neighborhood with regular people walking their dogs, etc. Very few tourists around. However, we had some problems. The house was not as clean as we would have liked when we arrived. The kitchen cabinets were dirty, the glass cupboards hadn't been cleaned. The laundry room downstairs is disorganized and messy and the adjoining garage is dirty, with old mattresses and boxes and miscellaneous junk thrown around and clearly visible. Several of the closets have messy stacks of stuff in them as well, probably the owner's things. Carpets are thin and stained in all the rooms, most visibly the front living room. The kitchen is not well-supplied in basics, like spoons (only a few mismatched, cheap ones) and cutting knives. There should be a knife holder on the counter with various knives. There are too many saimen spoons and bowls and too many weird little glasses; not enough basic drinking glasses. And there are only 3 wine glasses, one of which broke in the dishwasher while we were there. The dishwasher does not work very well; you have to really make sure everything is clean BEFORE it goes in, or it will still be on the dishes at the end of the cycle. The cupboard beneath the sink was dirty and messy and more sponges and cleaning materials (windex? 409?) should be provided there. We had to buy some of this basic stuff. We also could not find a vacuum cleaner or brooms. We finally found a vacuum hidden behind a bunch of stuff in one of the bedrooms, and a broom was brought to us when we requested it, but we were 10 adults in the house for a week; we needed cleaning supplies. (We were glad to find lots of paper towels down in the laundry room, but discovered these only after we'd bought some.) The sliding doors leading out to the lanai are not in good working order, nor are some of the blinds. We think there should be at least one more table out on the lanai and more shade in the way of sturdy umbrellas. As it is now, with only one table with one umbrella, guests cannot enjoy the lanai except in the morning and the evening unless they want to get a sunburn. Sonya, the property manager was very responsive to our questions and Rogel was very nice and helpful, but the property needs some work.

Perfect for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Booking and communication was fast, courteous and delivered everything that was promised Check in and check out was super easy. Kids loved the pool! The view was amazing at all times of the day. Quiet and peaceful neighborhood. House was clean and stocked and accurately described in listing Location was very great. Close to shopping area and short drive into Waikiki. We had an issue with a ceiling fan and the maintenance man was over within an hour to take care of it! I could go on and on. Had a great vacation with my family and in-laws. I do have to comment negatively on one issue, the shower heads in the house are not five star. The hot water does take some time but that is fine if you know ahead of time and plan for the time. The shower heads need to be cleaned from the calcium build up or something as the streams of water in the master bath will shoot out in random directions. Not a luxurious or relaxing shower but it does get the job done when you find out where to stand.

Perfect place to enjoy Oahu.

  • 5 of 5

We were the first guests to enjoy the newly installed A/C. It was perfect for those warm nights. Like everyone else said in their reviews, the outside living space is worth a million dollars alone. You really don't want to leave. But you should visit Roy's Hawaii Kai for dinner, parasail in the bay in front of the house (Hawaii Water Sports), hike the Makapu'u Lighthouse Trail, tour Sea Life Park (dolphin attraction) and snorkel in Hanauma Bay (you can rent the gear at the beach). All these great places are literally minutes from the house. The furniture and beds are very comfortable (although they are not the same in the photos). The pool looks small in the photos, but that is because the deck is huge. Safeway, Walgreens and Costco are nearby. Don't think twice about renting this home, you have nothing to worry about. The property managers are quick to reply.

Well, it's hard to keep finding better things to say this absolutely beautiful home. We felt at home when we first walked into the house. The house is well maintained, with a gorgeous newly updated kitchen, a great outdoor space and the views are stunning, that perfect to watch the sunset. Also, thanks to Sonya, property manager. She was extremely nice and helpful. She was quick to answer any questions that we had. This was the best vacation we've ever had and for sure we will be back....(SMILE)
