  • 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."

  • Very Comfortable and Spacious

    "We had a total of nine people staying here and we had no difficulty with sleeping arrangements and there was plenty of bathroom availability as well. We also rented the back Granny apartment and game room which was a bit hot during the day, but as we were in Hawaii we didn't spend too much time in doors during the day, and at night, with the windows open and the breeze blowing, it was perfectly comfortable. All at a very reasonable price too."

  • 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!"

  • Absolutely Perfect!!

    "As my son said, "This was the best vacation ever", and this is in great part to the perfect home of Mike and Melanie's! The location in Hawaii Kai on Portlock was so refreshing being out of Waikiki. We had 11 family members ranging from 18 to 82 staying together and the layout was perfect. My brother loves to cook and was so impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked with pots, pans and utensils, not to mention glasses and plates. There were ample towels for indoors and out, beach chairs, ice chest, snorkeling gear and boogie boards. I forgot how muggy it can be so it was nice to be able to sit outside for a bit, but then go into the air conditioned house to cool off. Our favorite time was sitting by the pool first thing in the morning, having coffee and smelling the plumerias. I can't recommend staying here enough! Melanie and Mike are fantastic owners Mahalo Nui Loa"
