  • Magical

    "Oahu Magic – Christmas week 2016 Sometimes, on a vacation, magic happens as in finding this destination for which we thanked the powers above, the family who rents this enchanting place, and the one who made our trip happen. Hale O’Bali and Java Kai are two charming Indonesian wood homes directly next to each other, sharing a gated secure entrance, a huge tiled wrap-around lanai, and a view that is perfect. This is just right for the extended family or good friends who want a secluded get-away with space - two kitchens, four bedrooms and pullouts in each living area with combined 3 baths when renting BOTH homes together; otherwise, know that you may have another group in the neighboring house but the grounds are so large, it won’t matter. To drink coffee, wine, or have a meal sitting outside watching the view, the ambience of this private estate with its tropical landscape, sprawling lawn reaching down to the calm waters of Kaneohe Bay looking right at China Man’s Hat is beyond compare – it was paradise. If our group had just stayed at this location every day in Oahu, using our rented paddleboards, cooking fresh ahi bought from a neighborhood home, eating veges and fruits from the roadside stand down the way, and enjoying the orchid farm within walking distance to this home, we would have been entirely pleased. So relaxing, no need to go anywhere else. The homes are comfortable, very well-stocked, clean, and fun to be in. The furnishings are Hawaiian style, lived-in or dated, and in some cases, fascinating, like the massive king-size carved beds, old chest, and artwork. The authentic home design, ceiling and roof is fascinating. Geckos (some inside!), green lizards, chickens, birds, and turtles are all here to enjoy. The Ko'olau Mountains tower over this magnificent view as wisps of clouds drift in and out of the peaks. This is a magical place within fair driving distance to both busy Waikiki, and the North Shore. But be warned – you’ll need to tear yourself away from this rental for your day trips, and upon return, you will smile. Here, you have a top tourist destination to yourself. This is NOT for one who must have ultramodern decor with all new everything, air conditioning, or “fancy” restaurants nearby. For us, the local Waikane Store, Kenekes, and the Poi Factory were enough to satisfy our needs – authentic Hawaiian fare, and a general store with the necessities. Contact with the owner and rental process was direct and personal."

  • Unbelievable! We will miss this!

    "We absolutely loved our stay! We found it challenging to leave the house because it was so exquisitely beautiful right from the deck. The whales breaching in the morning, the sound of the surf and the beautiful scenery to the unbelievable sunsets right from the deck were enough. We will definitely be back."

  • Family trip, perfect location

    "We had three generations: 7 adults, 3 kids, 1 baby, and this house was comfortable for all of us. The house and location is an opportunity to feel the 'real Hawaii' and not a pristine resort. One block off the beach, one block away from the grocery, one block away from the food trucks. Oh, there is an avocado tree in the front yard that was dropping ripe avocados during our stay. They were great eating!"

  • Ocean Ocean Ocean view!!!!!

    "We stayed in condo for 10 days Jan 10-20. The view is spectacular!!! It really can't be beat!!!! The West side of the Island is definitely meant for laid back people that just want to chill and be away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu!!! The condo supplies all of the essentials as far as cooking utensils ( good, non stick pots and pans). You will need to buy your own paper towels, toilet paper and stuff like that because this isn't a resort it's someone's beach home! The condo is very small with the livingroom and kitchen as soon as you walk in the door, then a shower and toilet room, the bathroom sink and counter space are in a small hallway, then the bedroom which is where the view begins and never ends!!! The lanai is right outside the bedroom and again, so so so beautiful!!!!! Only a couple miles East of the condo is everything you need for groceries, gas, convenience stores, snorkel/ paddle board rentals etc. Or 20- 30 minute beautiful view drive to the bigger towns with Costco/ Walmart etc!!!!! I will definitely be going back!!! Oh! And the condo is completely renovated and beautiful, the staff around the building are very friendly and helpful and it is all in a gated secured lot with security!! There are also grocery carts for you to borrow to load your stuff up to your condo on the west side of the building, which is really helpful when you have a bunch of groceries"
