  • Very peaceful rental away from the crowds.

    "We stayed here for our honeymoon in September. When we arrived it was fairly late at night so we appreciated the fresh fruit and food set out for us when we arrived, as we were very tired. The house is on the end of a street, so there was zero traffic noise. It backs onto a forest that has a hiking trail for the adventurous person and you can wake up to the sounds of the jungle birds singing to you. The house was well equipped with kitchen and bathroom supplies and the bedrooms were very large. The master bath was more recently renovated and the huge walk in shower was very nice at the end of the day. Air conditioning units were whisper quiet. The location of Hawaii Kai is great if you're looking to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. There are many fantastic restaurants within a couple minute drive, but if you'd like you can still be in Waikiki in 15 minutes as access to the H1 is very quick. It takes about 35 minutes or so to reach the pristine beaches on the windward side in Kailua and Lanikai. Locations such as Eternity Beach, Sandy Beach, and Makapu'u Point are a short ten minute drive. We didn't use the pool but found the water to be quite warm. Other than a short conversation to recommend restaurants we didn't hear or see the owners above at all, and we really enjoyed our privacy. They were kind enough to let us stay beyond our checkout time because we had a red eye flight and the weather wasn't great on our last day. Would definitely recommend this rental to people in the future and would love to come back ourselves. Mahalo!"

  • Loved the house and location!

    "We had a fantastic time at The Banyan Tree celebrating our family reunion! The location was ideal, we were just 15 minutes from Waikiki, and within 5 minutes to a catholic church, gas station, grocery store, COSTCO, Ross, pharmacy and other stores. This was just perfect. The house is beautiful. It has a really open and airy feeling about it, we felt right at home. The kitchen was a joy to be in. Everything you need was at your disposal. Dining indoors or outdoors was a nice touch to our daily routines, and being beach front gave us all a chance to paddle board and take a dip when we were just hanging around the house, which was most of the time! It is a shallow and calm beach, which made it ideal for the little kids to enjoy too. Ryan, the owner, made extra efforts to make our stay as comfortable as possible, so thank you Ryan! We would definitely stay here again!"

  • Lovely location

    "This little Cottage By The Bay is perfect if you want to be surrounded by quiet and lush Hawaiian greenery with a quiet beach just steps away. It was very clean with all the amenities to make my stay very comfortable and I loved the walk-in closet. I enjoyed being away from Waikiki which can be frantic and noisy yet everything I needed was convenient and close-by - from Costco to Safeway and many little places to eat. Thank you, Ron, for being such a great host."
