Recent Oahu reviews

  • Nice, clean condo.

    "Nice and clean condo. There was a leak in the bathroom ceiling that had to be fixed during our stay which was a little inconvenient, but everything else was great."

  • Great spot! Ocean views. Close to beach.

    "We stayed 8 nights and the experience was wonderful. We had ocean views from the big porch out back and it was just a couple minutes walk down the sandy path to the beautiful Kailua beach. We had 8 people and everyone had a bed to sleep on. We would stay at this spot again and recommend it!"

  • Wonderful, authentic Hawaiian vacation

    "We spent a glorious week at Moani Kai which was one of the most beautiful and well maintained vacation rentals I have ever experienced. First, the beach at Malaekahana Bay is three miles of beautiful desolate sandy beach with small waves and completely protected from the fierce breaks of the north shore. The house has recently been completely remodeled with resort quality linens and very comfortable 6 bedrooms. It is located on lush 1 acre lawn with paddle tennis court, hot tub overlooking the ocean and two kitchens so the parents stayed upstairs and the kids and grandkids stayed downstairs. There is a beautiful dining pavilion reminiscent of a Tuscany outdoor dining area with string lights all over looking the ocean. There is a hidden sun tan/massage deck that is next to the ocean but allows privacy to sunbathe in complete privacy. And there is a colorful hammock that we spent hours in enjoying the sound of the breaking surf. The house is well equipped with beach equipment, lounge chairs, boogie boards, children toys who used them in the massive yard next to the ocean. There are two master bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs and both have sliding floor to ceiling glass doors overlooking the ocean. We loved the charming caretaker who arranged for private chefs and massages at no extra charge (except a generous tip which she deserved). We loved our nightly bonfires under the moonlit skies. It was a wonderful and authentic Hawaiian vacation. It is the country and not the four seasons. But Malaekahana Bay is Hawaii's best kept secret where most of the houses are owned by the old families of Honolulu for their beach homes. Can't wait to return. I can't think of a better way to experience old Hawaii away from the glitz of Waikiki and a place to enjoy the very special Hawaii we all dream about."

  • Perfect getaway

    "My little family decided to have a staycation on the other side of the island for a few days and found this beach cottage. It is a true gem. It is even more picturesque than described, and is very authentic, quaint-- chabby chic. When we met Minerva and she walked us to the back to show us the view, we were delighted to count 6 sea turtles swimming around directly in front of the cottage! They were there every single day. There are many places to eat around the cottage-- breakfast is just a 3 minute stroll across the street to the Hukilau Cafe. It was easy to get groceries from the local markets and make fresh meals at the cottage-- we even grilled some steak and corn on a breezy evening. It was so relaxing early in the mornings to take a hot mug of freshly brewed coffee and sit on the edge of the yard, legs dangling over into the sand-- watching the Honu swimming gracefully by. The beach itself-- I must have walked the shore three times a day, and hardly met another person out there, which was so lovely and peaceful. Snorkeling right in front of the cottage also was amazingly refreshing, as well. They have a shed full of play things that the children can enjoy, and also body boards for the adults. Minerva was warm, genuine and absolutely lovely. She was always there for questions and concerns, and had many suggestions for local flavors in the area. There is an outdoor shower that has hot water, and proved useful after many excursions in the sand and water. Although there isn't any air conditioning, there was absolutely no need for it, as we had the windows open and doors for a perfect cross breeze-- that was my favorite part of our stay. The fresh ocean breeze. Waking up every morning to the gorgeous ocean view was unbelievably uplifting, and falling asleep to the crashing of tumultuous waves every night was simply mesmerizing. The little cottage is my favorite staycation thus far. Thank you so much, Minerva for creating such a unique and charming, delightful experience. My girls still ask to return to the Magical Honu Cottage."
