This classic Hawaiian Home, located in the prestigious South-Honolulu neighborhood, Kahala, is the perfect location for a memorable vacation.

This home is a tropical getaway where one can enjoy the relaxation of swimming, sunbathing, barbequing; all in the comfort of a private home. For activities, the sandy Kahala Beach is only a 5 minute walk away, and Waikiki and the Ala Moana Shopping Center is only a 10 minute drive away!

This one level home was built in the late 50’s and comfortably renovated in the 90’s. Its open design lends itself well to entertaining with a large Great Room, family room and dining room, that each extend to a covered lanai with the view of a beautifully manicured garden and expansive pool. The home is newly furnished with Balinese, teak furniture and accents from around the world.

The right wing of the home is charming with its original Hawaiian architecture. It includes 3 Bedrooms, (2 Queen beds+1 Full) and 1 full Bathroom. The back room in this wing has its own entrance to the backyard.

The left wing of the house includes a luxuriously sized private Master bedroom with walk-in closet and full bathroom. The bedroom has large pocket doors that open the gardens and pool of the backyard, a romantic retreat.

All bedrooms furnished with pillow-top mattresses, crisp bedding, fans and screens, allowing the breezes to flow throughout the home. Bathrooms are furnished with plush bath towels and the essential shampoo, conditioner and soap.

The open kitchen includes marble countertops, dishwasher, oven, microwave and gas stove. It’s complete with dinnerware, entertaining pieces, linens and glassware. The dining table seats 8 guests comfortably. Further cooking can be enjoyed on the back patio with a new 5-burner Gas BBQ.

The beautifully landscaped backyard is equipped to provide all that a resort does with fragrant Plumeria trees bordering the perimeters of the yard, 6 cushioned chaise lounges and 4 large umbrellas to enhance your pleasure by the salt pool. A covered lanai with outdoor fans and cushioned seating also offers the perfect lounge area to enjoy morning breakfasts, casual lunches and dinners.

There is also one additional room, Den, that has a new Pottery Barn sleeper sofa - Queen Bed. This room has pocket doors that allow it to be enjoyed as an additional bedroom.

The home is a few minutes from the Kahala Mall, which includes the Whole Foods organic market, Starbucks and other local shops. The Honolulu Airport is also a 20 minute drive. If you want to go into Waikiki or the Ala Moana Shopping Center, or Hanauma Bay you are only a 10 minute drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Meredith

Thank you so much for such a magic place to stay while we were in Hawaii. The family loved the place and it really did feel like our own private resort. The location is fabulous and we all made the most of the morning walk to enjoy coffees at the hotel up the road, our shopping visits to whole foods, and the easy accessibility to all the other sights on offer. The family are now back in their respective countries dotted round the world and we look forward to repeating the experience in the near future.

Warm Regards

Awesome Aukina Home

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 people (2 teens) staying 10 days. First time using VRBO. The home layout and amenities suited us perfectly. Big modern kitchen, open common areas and private bedrooms. The pool was fantastic bonus. The location is ideal, steps from beach and close to shopping and restaurants. Highly recommended. We would look into staying here again if we return to Hawaii. Thanks VRBO.

Ten days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this beautiful house with our family for ten wonderful days in March. Plenty of room for two teen age children to have their space. When we had a minor problem with the pool, the owner was extremely easy to work with and had it looked after promptly. We found the location very accessible to everywhere. If and when we return to Hawaii this will definitely be our first choice of accommodations.

I chose this house for my 50th birthday with friends and family, 10 wonderful days, I would highly recommend this "home" to anyone thinking of going to Hawaii for an extended visit. Great location, we felt like locals and getting around was a breeze with our hire car. Everything about the home is wonderful, even better than the photos. Would go back tomorrow if I could.

My family and I stayed at this rental property for 18 days total and truly enjoyed every waking moment. There were 12 of us total (9 adults and 3 children), and we never once felt crowded. The pool was such a nice touch. Although we spent most of our time exploring the island and the most amazing beaches ever, we still enjoyed coming home and dipping in the pool. The Kahala area is one of the most prestigious in all of Honolulu; a famous actor from the hit show Hawaii Five-0 previously lived at this property. There is so much to do in and around the area. Meredith was amazing to work with; she always responded to our calls and emails right away. The house is well maintained and the pictures do not do justice. I can honestly say anyone staying at this property will be delighted!! My family and I are already discussing our next trip to Hawaii!!!

Family Vacation and Wedding Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this home with our immediate families as we all traveled to Hawaii for our beach wedding. Everything was more beautiful than expected. The location of the home is fantastic with shopping mall just a 3 minute drive away with restaurants, major department stores and a convenient drug store. There are also various grocery stores nearby as well. Easy access to the interstates for sightseeing and close to Waikiki. The property is very clean and very well maintained. Meredith and her property manager were so great to work with and very prompt in answering needs and questions. The open layout of the home is so nice with the sliding doors to the lanai. Everyone enjoyed the pool which one may think who needs a pool in Hawaii but after a long hot day at the beach or site seeing it is quite refreshing. There is the beach and a park just a short 5 minute walk away, though I do recommend water shoes if you plan to go in the water here. Overall our stay here was outstanding and will be a wonderful part of our memories as we look back on this trip. All of our family members thoroughly enjoyed themselves as well. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! We hope to come back and stay again!!!

Kahala at it's best

  • 5 of 5

This a beautiful house in a quiet convenient neighborhood. Easy on and off the freeway for island excursions out of town, and close to Waikiki Beaches by way of a scenic drive.

Hale Aukai is a classy remodeled comfortable Hawaiian home. Kitchen and bathrooms are appointed with quality fixtures and amenities. Bedrooms are clean freshly painted and airy with ceiling fans and great exposure to the beautiful gardens. Beds and furnishings are comfortable and elegant, with walk in closets, plentiful drawer and side table space. Accessory furnishings, like lamps, mirrors, vase, day beds and fold out sofas add style and practicality.

The greatroom style living space had plenty of comfortable couches, dinning for 8-10, and best of all a sunroom and lanai directly adjacent. Breakfast was enjoyed outside everyday on the lanai and dinner was served nightly. Both while enjoying the outdoors and being inside at the same time.

The backyard was just as special. With a quality stainless steel grill and chaise lounge,it was easy to relax while grilling. The pool, big enough to swim laps added to the day for relaxing or fitness.

Overall the 9 members of my family felt lucky to have stayed in such a comfortable and beautiful home.
