About the property

Tranquil 4 Bed, 2 Bath house just steps from the beach. Full Kitchen, Sleeps 12

This house is the perfect balance between being close to Waikiki & Honolulu (15min) but is tucked away in a quiet community. Walk to shopping, dinning, and grocery stores which are just a few blocks away.

The pool area is tucked into the lush gardens and the covered cabana is a great spot to hang out after a long day in the sun. There is a outdoor shower to rinse off when coming and going from the beach which is right across the street (little/no traffic, very safe for kids).

The Master Suite is the largest bedroom complete with large master bath. The remaining bedroom are good size and have views of the pool area.

The kitchen has everything you will need to make your meals large or small. There is also a washer/dryer in the study off the kitchen so you can pack a little lighter.

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Our family's stay at this location was very enjoyable. Ample street parking, a beautiful pool next to the house, a very clean kitchen, and a washing and drying machine are some of the amenities included in it. The owners do live on-site in a separate house, but for the most part they kept to themselves. We only ever had to talk to them when we needed something (ask them for more fans if it gets hot!), and they were very courteous and polite. There's ample street parking and Koko Marina shopping center is a ten minute walk away! There are many great restaurants to choose from over there and Hanauma Bay was a short drive away from the house as well! Overall, the stay was really relaxing and I would recommend it to my friends and family.

我和家人一共大小十人從中國到夏威夷旅遊,從綱上知道PORTLOCK 是夏威夷最好的靠海高尚住宅區,選擇這個房子是因為它地點好,房子看起來也十分漂亮,而且價錢比同區的都要好。到達後感覺選擇真的沒錯,房子四房兩浴室,地方很大,十分舒適。房外除了有特大的院子,還有一個漂亮的游泳池地方,大人小孩都玩的十分開心。房子近海,地方比一般的房子要大三四倍,環境十分寧靜。房子附近有各種景點和不同的購物中心及餐廳。非常滿意,下次再來還會選擇這房子。

Well wort it

  • 5 of 5

Portlock is the best spot in Hawaii Kai. This house was perfect for vacationing. Nice and clean, plenty of space, lots of street parkings right in front of the house, great location, beautiful pool area. The neighborhood is very safe and peaceful, no one had any trouble sleeping or heard any loud noises. This place is a great value and we'll definitely come back again.

To begin with, there is NO BEACH right across the street, even though that is the headline of the ad - across the street are houses, and even though there is a corridor to the water there is still no beach, just a rocky shoreline. The nearest beach is a long walk distant.

The photographs are deceptive. They make it look like you are renting a house, when what you really get appears to be a converted garage, attached to a house where the owner lives (disclosed only AFTER you pay for the rental), and the owner's house appears nowhere in the pictures. In the photo it looks like there is ample parking next to the rental unit, but they make you park on the street! Quite inconvenient.

The pool is nice enough, but smaller than it appears to be in the ad. The pool area is pleasant, though, and a great place to hang out - probably the property's best feature.

The appliances are old, except for the washer and dryer which are very nice, but there is no dishwasher or even a garbage disposal. The furniture is old and worn, and some of the curtains have holes in them. There is no AC. The light fixtures are full of dead bugs, and my wife was not pleased with the overall cleanliness. One wonders what they do with the hefty cleaning fee.

The table seats 6, though it's advertised to seat 8. The handle in the shower is broken and the glass is etched, and one of the kitchen drawer handles is hanging by one screw, and I could go on - examples of careless maintenance overall.

The location is convenient and there are some very good restaurants nearby, e.g. Roy's and Le Bistro. Beautiful Hanauma Bay is less than five minutes away, and downtown is only fifteen minutes away. It's also a short drive around Makapuu Point to the windward side and its pristine beaches. If you're a golfer you will like the nearby Hawaii Kai course, and there are many other great courses a short drive distant.

Another good feature is TV sets in 3 of the 4 bedrooms as well as the living room, although the cable service does not have any HD channels.

We did not get the experience we expected, and we were quite frankly embarrassed that we had invited some relatives to share the place with us. In our opinion the owner needs to put some money and some effort into the place to make it more habitable.

Owner's Response: Not sure what to say you simply can't make everyone happy. Pretty extensive rant for someone that didn't make the reservation or raise any concerns during their stay. All the pictures of the house, pool and the beach are exactly that pictures we took. Not sure how they are deceiving. The beach sand does move out from time to time after a large swell. Its not something we can predict. All you have to do is walk over a few rocks to get past it to rest of the beach.

Wonderful house

  • 4 of 5

This was a very comfortable house to stay in.The house was very clean, and nicely furnished.

We make 2 to 3 trips to Hawaii a year and always return to the same house, except when they are sold as was the last one, which we stayed in the past 3 years.

The owner Kevin lives on the same property in a different house with his family, and was very kind and patient and quick to answer our requests. The pool is private but if one likes to skinny dip or sun au natural or use the wonderful out door shower be careful of people using the gate to enter or leave the property for the gate is close to the pool.

One night it was windy and the pool had a lot of leaves and debris the next morning but the pool was cleaned immediately.

There are many nice restaurants close by. Assagio was our favorite. Beware a small serving is enough for 2 people. We would definetly stay here again on our next trip.

Thank you Kevin for renting to us, we enjoyed the house.

Great place; perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This quiet, well-equipped rental is perfect for a family group who doesn't want to be in the midst of tourist madness. Ideal location for getting out to less crowded beaches, hikes, exploring, but still very close to Honolulu. Fabulous pool and comfortable house!
