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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I want to thank you for the fabulous vacation we experienced. Hawaii is definitely paradise. However, staying at your place made our trip complete. There was nothing that was missed by you and your staff. From a complete kitchen to a fabulous backyard. Waking in the morning to the sun peaking over the mountain was breathtaking. The patio, pool, and backyard decor was the clincher. Many nights were spent relaxing out back soaking up the view. In all reality it pained us to have leave. Words really can't describe how perfect everything was. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you

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.

Overall great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall this is a great place to stay. We wanted a place away from Waikiki that had a pool. This place met the requirements. Far away enough from the tourist area but close enough to where we needed to go. The beaches were a couple minutes drive. Having the Costco down the street was perfect as we were able to cook breakfast and dinner. The pool was great as the kids were able to continue swimming even after beach days. Would stay here again because of the area and overall the price.

Great location and really nice outdoor area

  • 5 of 5

Loved the layout/location of

The fourth bedroom (more privacy) and the outdoor shower and additional sink next to the laundry room. Although we had six adults it never seemed crowed and we all had sufficient space. The outdoor area was great for entertaining (had family in for a wedding)
