About the property

3 Bd 2.5 Ba Over 2200 Sf On Large Estate Sized Property

Mango Haven is a very private home reminiscent of “Old Hawaii” in modern day Honolulu. The majestic mango tree is the heart of our home that welcomes guests with its large gracious canopy. It is our home away from home. Born and raised in the islands we cherish Mango Haven and want to share with you our inviting and laid-back home - located on an uncrowded sandy stretch of beach.

The prolific mango tree bears an abundance of fruit. Generations have made mango chutney from these mangoes, and generations have also returned to enjoy their time at Mango Haven with family and friends. We take pride in the number of returning guests each year.

When Mango Haven was renamed to capture the essence of this historic property, we unfortunately lost all of our previous (all positive) reviews beginning in 2002 on this website. Yet guests were coming for generations before....before this website or the Internet!

Our home is a Haven - to spend time together with family and friends enjoying the beach, sharing meals and relaxing from your day in the sun. The epic sunrises seem to make coffee taste better! At the end of the day, enjoy the sunset skies or sit under the stars at night beneath the swaying palms hearing the sound of the water lapping on the shore.

This well maintained historic beach house was once a fishing cottage in the 1930’s. We take pride in preserving the old charm while keeping it updated with modern conveniences of WiFi, Cable TV, Modern Appliances and Air Conditioning.

The beach views are the focal point of the spacious living room, dining room, screened in lanai and two master suites. The master suites each have full bathrooms and the third bedroom has an attached ½ bath. Our private outdoor shower can’t be beat after a day in the ocean and is enjoyed all year round.

Mango Haven is over 2200 square feet with room for all to gather as well as room for privacy. The large enclosed lanai that opens toward the beach is our most popular room in the home. Here is where we spend time enjoying the view of the ocean, dining, taking naps on the hiki'es (day beds), playing ping pong, or reading a book. Something for everyone is awaiting you at Mango Haven.

The yard is planted with flowering plants and fruit trees. Enjoy the fragrant Plumeria, Stephanotis, Orchids and Ginger when they are in bloom. If you are here when the bananas ripen or during Mango season - ENJOY the bounty of fruit!

This island beach house is centrally located with easy access to major island attractions. 10 minute beach stroll to Waialae Country Club and the Kahala Hotel. Great location for attending the Sony Open. The home is also located along the Honolulu Marathon route - ideal location for participants or to cheer your favorite runner on! Haunama Bay, Koko Head Crater, the Blow Hole, Sandy Beach, Pearl Harbor, the University of Hawaii (the home is very popular during graduation weekend so book early!), The Hawaii Convention Center, Ala Moana Shopping Center, Bishop Museum, Iolani Palace & Diamond Head are easy to get to from our central location.

Come enjoy Mango Haven and make new memories in our charming home.

We like to know a little bit about our guests who may be staying in our Historic home. Please tell us about yourselves. Where are you traveling from? What brings you to the islands? Is this your first trip to the islands?

We look froward to hearing from you!

*We have a caretaker on premise.

About Susu

Born and raised in the islands we love returning frequently to visit our family and friends.

Why Susu chose Kahala

Growing up surfing and fishing right off this very beach made this home the perfect place for our family. When we are back home, Mango Haven is ideal for our island relatives and friends to gather and spend time together.

we could not have asked for more, and we are picky when it comes to vacation rentals! this house was so perfect. it's an older home but the inside feels fresh and comfortable and it had absolutely everything that we needed. the backyard is huge and was perfect for our little one to run around, and best of all is that we were right on the beach (although it's very shallow so not great for swimming). this house was so relaxing and just awesome. it is right off a busy road but once you pull in you completely forget about that and we never heard any traffic from inside the house or from the backyard. the housekeeper that shares the lot, Saarki, is so wonderful and made is feel completely at home. I cannot wait to stay at this house again! thank you.

Lovely bed room with amazing views!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The scenery is really wonderful!

With the scenery here I can drink plenty of beer.

It was close to the highway but I could sleep comfortably without noise.

I'll definitely stay again!

Thank you Susu & Sirkka.

The owner was easy to work with. The property manager was very friendly and helpful. House is directly off a busy road but sits back and is very quiet. Beautiful trees and backyard. We grilled dinner on the new BBQ almost every night. Beach access to play in the water, but not a great spot to swim. Centrally located. Did a Costco run on the first day and used the full kitchen resources. 8-10 min to Waikiki shops and beaches, 45 min to north shore, and 25 min to Pearl Harbor, aloha stadium swap meet, and east shore beaches and swimming.

Mango Haven is a very beautiful and wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

Especially the lanai, the private garden and the beach are wonderful.

The host was very well organized and was around for all of our questions.

I borrowed with my friend and her family, and the private of the two families was fully guaranteed.

We had a comfortable and nice time at Mango Haven.

If you have car rental, we do not have trouble moving, or you can use 22,23 lines of city bus, you will arrive at T Galleria DFS in about 30 minutes without transfer.

40th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated this wonderful occasion by taking our 2 kids, plus spouses and one nearly three-year old grandson, to Hawaii for a week. After reviewing hundreds of possible locations and islands, Mango Haven was the standout choice. Separate quarters for each of three families, spacious shared quarters for eating, playing and relaxing together, great outdoor space and oh, those magnificent, quiet morning sunsets!

Susu was incredibly responsive to our questions, and caretaker Sirka was equally helpful. The bedding and linens were luxuriously comfortable. Before we even left the island, everyone was talking about how soon we could return! Great bonding experience for scattered families.
