  • The Quieter Side of Oahu

    "This was our first time to O'ahu, and we wanted a quiet ocean front stay without paying an arm and a leg. We chose to stay at this condo for a week, and it was one of our favorite vacations ever. What makes it nice is its far enough away from Waikiki that it's not crowded and doesn't have bad traffic--two things we wanted to avoid while vacationing. It's also super close to the Polynesian Cultural Center, Kualoa Ranch (awesome movie site/jungle tours), and awesome beaches. The condo itself is updated and clean, has a great view of the ocean, and was comfortable. Be aware that it doesn't have A/C, but the leaving the windows open and running the fans kept us cool. The building itself is older, but it is well maintained. Arranging the stay itself was pretty simple and painless--the owners are nice and easy to work with. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation and it was very nice to come back to a clean and quiet condo every night, a condo that was out of the hustle of Honolulu."

The caretakers are so friendly and totally non intrusive, you can't even tell they are there!! We will def. be back to this place! I should be writing negative things so people don't find out about this gem! Thanks again frank!"

  • Exactly like pictures

    "My daughters and son paid all expenses for me to celebrate my 70s birthday here. We loved this place and had a wonderful time. Plenty of towels and bedding, along with all the other things promised. We were grateful for the extras, like the little cooler and the boards. Though the rental is a little worn as far as needing paint touch ups, you need to expect that near the beach. My daughters and I loved the roominess and clean, comfortable beds especially. There were condiments and basic spices, etc., along with food items that were fresh. The owner left us a basket of breakfast snacks and coffee too. She is very friendly and helpful. The walk to the beach was short and easy. We watched the sunset on Sunset Beach almost every night. There was plenty of hot water for showers, but each person needs to wait until the other is done due to affecting the water pressure if two tried to shower at the same time.. It wasn't a problem for us. Little geckos kept the mosquitos away. We only saw a few bugs and ants--just needed to keep things in the fridge and sealed in containers in the cupboards. The only drawback for a couple in our party was the roosters waking them up at three and four in the morning. It was later on the days it rained (4:30 a.m.). We kept our windows open, so we could hear the neighbor's dog started barking each night at bedtime, but it wasn't a problem for me personally. We only used the air conditioners for a short time one evening to cool because of the high humidity from the hurricanes we arrived between. The fans were enough through the night the rest of the time as gentle breezes blew through the windows. If you want a true tropical experience, stay here, but go to the crowded city hotels if you cannot handle a few inconveniences of animal noise. At least this place is far enough off of the road where the traffic noises are not a problem and the surf can still be heard. We had fun with the chickens and a old stray cat that visited (though we wouldn't let it in the house). We named the cat Meowee (it didn't really meow or bother us). Clothesline, outdoor shower, hose and washer and dryer were great helps. This place is well stocked for cooking and lacked nothing in the way of convenience. We got my birthday cake at Ted's bakery and it was very rich and delicious. This place is central to everything. Don't miss the Polynesian Cultural Center or Temple and Visitor's Center! Thanks for the fantastic memories!"

  • Perfect Hawaiian Family Vacation Home

    "This was our second family vacation to the Pa Hauoli House. We took our children and our eleven grand-kids to Hawaii for a family vacation celebrating our retirement. Just driving up the country road to the house is such a relaxing experience and it always feels like I have arrived in a tropical paradise. A common reaction of our children upon first seeing the house is, "Is this it? Are we really going to get to stay here?" From the huge yard and large patio (where we barbecued and I think ate every meal) to the stunning ocean view from the ocean side of the house, it doesn't get any better than this. We had an adult versus kids game of capture the flag on the football field size lawn. The house is well furnished with kitchen appliances and cookware, stocked with games, towels, surf boards and much more. A favorite spot to relax was sitting beneath the shade trees at beach edge and reading or watching the grand-kids playing in the surf and watching turtles coming up for air. The only problem was it was so relaxing I would drop my book as I nodded off and lose my place. The grand-kids were occupied for hours building a "survivor" shelter on the beach from palm fronds and drift wood. Even in what is considered a busy tourist month, we had miles of beach to ourselves. The house is close to Turtle Bay Resort so my sons and I were able to play golf at the Fazio and Palmer Courses, the kids played in the tide pools at "Shark's Cove" and the older ones had a thrill jumping off the rock at Waimea Beach. A real treat for us has been getting to know Bill and Nancy and their Ohana, the caretakers of the property. They are so helpful and attentive to ensure that everything was set for our large family. The quality of their service and friendly help for anything we needed makes this place even more of a treasure."
