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.

                                                                    Janet W.Coquitlam, BC/Reading, England

                                                                    Our family (5 adults and 5 children) had the pleasure of spending a month at Dori's place in Waianae. The location was beautiful, the property lovely and Dori was attentive and accommodating. The house was clean and comfortable. The grounds were well maintained and the pool was fantastic. The addition of the outdoor showers and toilets made it easy for the kids to run to the bathroom and back to the pool. The property is 5 minutes to Poikai Bay and 10 minutes to Makaha Beach. The outdoor pavilion and extra fridge were great. On rainy days, the kids had somewhere to play soccer and tag and we had lots of room for all our groceries. Dori was good at keeping informed when the groundkeeper and pool man were coming.

                                                                    If there is any way that we can manage another family vacation in the future, this would be our go to.

                                                                    Mahalo Dori and family!

                                                                    Great family vacation rental. The kids and adults loved the pool and the yard had so much room too!

                                                                    Erlene L.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to STAYCATION. We didn't even want to leave for that matter. The owner Dori was just as amazing, she was always easy to reach and was avalible whenever we need to call. Me and my ohana definitely recommends this location to every one out there. We will be returning sooner than later

                                                                    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.
