Why Darren Perman chose Hawaii Kai
Our family loves the waterfront community of Hawaii Kai. We truly enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki to relax in our pool or be peaceful on a kayak or stand up paddle board right in our own backyard on the water front. Within minutes of the house are the Waimanalo beaches, Hanauma Bay Marine Sanctuary, Sea Life Park, hiking trails, Hawaii Kai Golf Course, horseback riding, water skiing, wake boarding, etc. Hawaii Kai is a quiet suburb of Honolulu with plenty of activities to keep families busy.
What makes this House unique
Our family-friendly house is 'on the water' with boat dock, swimming pool, amazing ocean and mountain views! We are only 5 minutes away from the exceptional snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, excellent golf courses, as well as extraordinary hiking trails for both beginning and advanced hikers. Our home is a perfect oasis of serenity and a short drive outside the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, yet close enough to enjoy the best of both worlds.

FUN FOR THE FAMILY
This is an ideal place for the whole family. We appreciated the private backyard with lounge chairs where we can relax and get a a good view of the waters. The pool provided much enjoyment for the grand kids. The water heater gave up on us while we were there and the owner was attentive and replaced it within a day. We received a basket of wine and snacks for the inconvenience. The house is close to everything yet not in a crowded city. It is spacious and well laid out so that each family member can have his/her own space. One bonus is the mango tree in the backyard loaded with tree ripened mangoes in season. The grand kids patiently anticipated fallen mango everyday, and they were not disappointed. We hope we can go back again to relive the memories.
Something for floating on the canal would have been a bonus.
Pool was a life saver with the kids.
Quite a bit of mold in the corners of the bathrooms.
Many unexpected goodies in the kitchen - toaster-oven, dishwasher, grill - maybe these were described and I forgot. There were even some staples in the fridg and cupboards.
Pretty good selection of books for kids and adults.
Plenty of parking. Little hard to get out into the street with the construction vehicles parked in the street. They blocked the view. But that is a temp. problem.
The beds had extra pads on top.
9 of us stayed quite comfortably. The pool shower had hot water-bonus-making 3 showers. Sometimes the two toilets were in high demand. There were also three wash up sinks plus the kitchen sink.
The vegetation was varied including fresh mangos and coconuts.
Aloha Phyllis, I'm happy you had a nice vacation in Hawaii and that the kids enjoyed the pool. Thank you for your positive review and feedback. The house is cleaned to the highest standard after every checkout. Due to the tropical humidity of Hawaii weather, guests who stay for 2 weeks might experience some mildew in which case we suggest an extra cleaning from our staff during their stay. As for the something to float on the canal, we suggest taking advantage of a banana boat ride, or jet ski rentals in the local Koko Marina Shopping Center. We hope you have wonderful memories of your trip and will visit Hawaii again in the future. Mahalo!
Nice house in good location
The house was nice but the pool, views and location were fantastic. Our family of 7 adults and 3 children fit comfortably and there were no issues. My granddaughter forgot her glasses and they mailed them to her house. Thanks for everything.
We recently stayed for 6 days at this home, this property was great for us as it was able to accommodate all 9 adults in our party. Even though there are only 2 bathrooms it never seemed to be a problem. The home is adequately stocked with everything you need. The back yard was definitely our favorite part , we spent many afternoons and evenings enjoying the pool and the large gathering area. This home is just far enough away from the busyness of downtown and yet close enough to afford easy access so if you wanted to be on Waikiki beach or Pearl Harbor you were not too far away but if you wanted the solitude of the neighborhood or a short drive to the north shore it was perfect for that too.
WORTH IT, LOVE IT!
If I can summarize our stay at this place in one word, it would be “Wow!” What can I say? First, the owner is very responsive, and accommodating. Our flight got in early in the morning, and was able to let us come in an hour early. The home is in the middle of a beautiful subdivision on the east side of Oahu. First thing we wanted to do was check out the pool. Though it’s in the beginning of February, the pool was not too cold for us to take a dip. On top of that, the view of Koko Head Trail was such a treat, especially during sunrise. The outdoor shower was so useful, as that’s where I took my shower everyday. The kitchen had everything we needed in order to cook our meals. We had a party of nine, and there were ample amount of sleeping area to accommodate us. I was a little apprehensive renting it before getting there because it looked like it was further from Waikiki/Honolulu than I would've liked, but I was wrong. It was accessible to all the major places, and only 6 miles away from Queen's beach. Also, the Maunalua Bay Beach Park is so amazing to see, and to be able to walk around the bay is a definite must do! I would strongly suggest renting this place, it is worth every penny! I can’t wait to come back and stay with them again.
My family and I stayed st this home and everything was great the stores were closed you were out of the city . The house was wonderful the shower outside was a hit and it came with beach towels that was a plus I will recommend to all my family and friends . Much aloha
