We had a wonderful time staying at this home. Very nice. Close to beaches, shopping and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice, clean home in the Hahaione Valley close to Hawaii Kai. Hawaii Kai has so many fun restaurants and shops, not to mention Costco and Safeway. Its also very close to Hanauma Bay, Koko Crater, and various other good beaches for swimming. This home is located in a quiet residential area just 20-25 minutes from the airport, so its best to rent a car to get around. It has three nice bedrooms, two baths and a large comfortable living area with a kitchen that had most everything we needed. We spent lots of time in the beautifully landscaped private yard with plenty of lawn furniture. It comes with beach toys as well... water shoes in many sizes, boogie boards, beach towels, etc. For our family of seven, including a toddler and a 7-year-old, it was perfect. The owner is very helpful if you have any questions or need anything. We will definitely stay here again the next time we're on the island. Mahalo Sara!

Disappointed.

  • 3 of 5

It says it sleeps 8 but only enough hot water for 4. Cold showers daily. It says it has a soaking pool but to small and dirty to get in. No tvs in bedrooms and uncomfortable beds. The white carpet up the stairs is stained and needs to be replaced. It needs to be updated all the way through. The price was right but would not stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments and feedback, and thank you for staying. My apologies for the hot water it is solar and the weather during your stay was gray skies, windy and raining! Had you mentioned it I could have turned it to the power company longer but I didn't know. The carpets were just steam cleaned two days ago and yes I agree they were stained again I apologize they are hard to maintain as people wear their shoes inside (even though we say no shoes inside) and property is booked all the time but they are professionally cleaned every 4-5months. As stated in the listing there is a TV in one bedroom and one in the living room. The pool was completely emptied, cleaned and refilled just before you arrived, and yes it's a small plung pool, as described in listing. Again the winds were high during your stay and I'm forever scooping leaves out of the pool so that maybe what you are referring too as the pool being dirty because of the leaves. I'm so sorry that we didn't met your expectations with the bed comfort. Thank you again for your feedback and safe travels for your future trips Mahalo

Spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six so it was nice to have two-stories with several rooms for us to stay in instead of tripping all over each other. The location was great for snorkeling in Hanauma Bay and visiting the Polynesian Cultural Center. We made many trips to the local strip malls and 7-11 for food and drinks but having the kitchen saved us $$$. It was helpful to have Sara next door. I would email her questions and she quickly answered them. Our stay was worry free, no complaints. Thank you Sara.

Great value for traveling families

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four this property represented a fantastic savings versus anything a hotel property could offer. The home is spacious with good sized rooms, and excellent separation between them. The kitchen is well equipped and with the lanai BBQ offers a great alternative to dining out. This property is also very close to multiple shopping venues, Costco, Safeway, Longs etc. as we ll as many fine resturants. The Hawaii Kai shopping center offers just about everything you may want.

This property to is also within minutes of some of the best beaches on the island, from the benign (Waimanalo & Bellows) to the exciting (Sandy & Macapu'u). A 10 minute drive gets you into Waikiki for the complete tourist experience, perfect beaches, great dining and shopping.

Last but not least, our hostess Sara was friendly, helpful, and readily available if needed.

WE LOVED IT AND WE ARE COMING BACK!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

It exceeded our expectations. The bedrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms were clean and very comfortable. Sara had left many items in the refrigerator that saved us significant money. Overall the house was quite and we felt secure. We plan to return next year.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Sara's home was more than expected. If you're looking for a quiet neighborhood with access to Costco, restaurants, hiking trails and freeways that are no more than 5-10 minutes away, choose her home in Hawaii Kai. Rooms were very comfortable, kitchen had all the necessities needed in order to cook breakfast and her backyard was BEAUTIFUL! We spent most of our morning outside her backyard having breakfast listening to the birds and the breeze wrestling with her beautiful trees. Being from the philippines, this felt like home for us. She had an amazing mango tree in the back and with her blessing we were able to get one mango for breakfast ;) We plan to come back to hawaii in the next 2 years and this will be our go to home to rent. Mahalo & Salamat Po Sara! God bless you, your family for always welcoming people into your world!
