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.

A BEUATIFUL LOCATION
Nothing but wonderful comments to write. They were all so welcoming to their & answered any & all questions I had. I wanted to spend the weekend with family over the weekend for our birthday and it was the perfect place. Next to a pool side with no one to bother. The neighbors are to themselves & the weather was perfect. The whole house is AC & it was comfortable and relaxing. Very much like a home for sure. It fits 5-6 cars on the lot. I would definitely re-rent this location again for sure.
Beautiful, safe setting and spotlessly clean!
We loved staying here. The house had everything we needed, kids loved the pool, it's a very short drive to local shops and the surrounding area is beautiful
Best Vacations always start with the Best lodging. Our Hawaiian Waterfront Home was Spectacluar.

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!
Nightly rates will vary depending on length and time of stay, time of booking, and occupancy. Rates are subject to change until confirmed. The cleaning fee per stay is $275.00.
