About Dori DeMello
Our Ohana take great pride in our home. Our Hawaiian ancestry drives us to make our hale reflect true Aloha. We have completely renovated this property to make it as family friendly as we would our own residence. We're committed to making your stay in our beloved island your best vacation ever.
Dori DeMello purchased this House in 2014
Why Dori DeMello chose Waianae
This is the first property we purchased as a young married couple. After 15 years and four children later, due to medical issues, we had to sell this property in 2001. Moving closer to our ' Ohana, we raised our children, refocused on health, and kept this property in the back of our mind...praying that we would be able to one day purchase it again. In the Spring of 2014 we received a call saying that our former property was going back on the market. In prayer, we went to visit the owners and discussed buying it back. They accepted our offer and we were thrilled to have our family home back. Our children and 'Ohana worked tirelessly to restore the home and property. We decided to continue to live close to our family and use this as a retreat for our church and family. To fund our repurchase, we opened it up as a vacation rental. We're excited to offer a bit of our beautiful island and express our Hawaiian aloha to visitors from around the world.
What makes this House unique
Our home has the advantage of being away from the crowds of Honolulu and the resorts. Pristine beaches are just a 5 minute drive away but if the beach isn't for you, our pool is a wonderful escape. Whether it is stargazing around the fire pit at night, playing a quick game of volleyball, or just relaxing on the spacious lana'i...a perfect family retreat is waiting for you. Our property has an added addition that can accommodate large gatherings with an covered 3200 sq. ft. hall with a outdoor kitchen and bathrooms.

Great fun time with Family!
We stayed there for my daughters birthday and she had a blast. From swimming all day to making s’mores at night! Very spacious and has everything you need, even it’s own bbq grill. Dori the owner is very friendly and easy to communicate with. I’d definitely recommend this place to everyone!
Best place we stay led at so far hands down

We had an AWESOME time! The Ohana can't wait to celebrate another occasion just so we can come back for another stay. Thanks Dori!!!!
Amazing! 5 Stars!!!
We couldn’t have chosen a better place for our weekend getaway! The house was clean and spacious so our large party (including kids ages 6-16) were very comfortable. The two couches in the living room even folded out into comfy beds. The bathrooms were roomy and fully stocked with bath and beach towels. The kitchen had all the dish ware and cutlery you needed and a great place to hang out. We could either eat there at the island or go out onto the deck and enjoy the view. The kids love love loved the pool and huge yard! They did canon balls or just floated around all day long in the pool! There’s even a shower to rinse off on the deck! The beautiful lush yard is large enough to have a football or soccer match which our older kids loved! Dori, the property manager even put up a volleyball net for us and we played until it was dark and couldn’t see the ball! The outdoor grill was spotless and easy to use. We set up a few tables and chairs outside in the pavilion and enjoyed the good food and company of friends. Dori was so helpful and easy to work with! She was quick to respond to any inquiries and made sure we were comfortable during our stay! We had an amazing weekend here and will definately be coming back!
Thank you for allowing us to have a gateway during the weekend of June 8 - 11, 2018. We totally enjoyed ourselves. The property is so amazing and accommodating. The private pool was such a hit for the kids and adults. We will using this property again in the future. Thank you again.
Beautiful Family-Friendly Vacation Home
This was our 2nd time staying in this beautiful home. Our family of 6 loved the spacious house and yard. The pool was a huge plus! It was a busy visit this time and it was nice to be able to come back to the house to unwind and take in the view.
The ability for our kids and their cousins to relax in the living room or in the pool area allowed them to rekindle old relationships, and create new memories, which would not have happened in a cramped hotel room. The entire family gathered on the spacious back porch one evening while the aunties and uncles sang songs and jammed out on their ukes and guitars.
The owner, Dori, is very sweet and welcoming. *Thank you Dori for accommodating us to stay in your wonderful home! It made going home for my dear Mom's funeral so much less stressful for our family.
Our house is true Hawaiian aloha...Away from the crowds of Waikiki, the traffic and the noise, our home assures your ohana (family) the vacation they desire. Relax in our 25' x 50' swimming pool or drive 5 minutes down the valley to one of our West Coast beaches that just happen to be ranked 3rd most beautiful in the world.
Needing an ohana night away from the crowds? Cook out on our grill by the pool, relax by the fire pit or on our over-sized lana'i (patio) playing games. Because we're away from the city lights, stargazing is second to none.
Desiring to see more of Hawai'i? We're not far from any attractions. A 45 minute drive will take you to Waikiki and just about any place on the island. Whale watching cruises (January/February) can be booked through Waikiki or locally out of the Waianae Boat Harbor. Or.....you can relax on the beach at Yokohama Bay and watch Humpback whales and dolphins at play.
Love to hike? Just past Yokohama Bay is one of the most scenic hikes on Oahu, Kaena Point Nature Reserve. The Hawaiian Monk Seal makes this point a resting place and rare Albatross use the Point as a nesting sight. You may just see their young peeking from their ground nests. The tide pools at Kaena Point are filled with beautiful sea creatures you won't see in many beaches around Oahu....and this hike is only a 15 minute drive from your front door. Backpack a picnic and lots of water and enjoy the beauty of God's creation absolutely free.
To hold an event is a separate charge. Price is customized for each event. There is also an additional $12.50 charge per person per day/night over the 10 people allowed for the price on the website. And the additional people will need to provide their own bedding etc.
