PERFECT WINDWARD HOME - OLD HAWAII THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE!

Kaaawa House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 8

The Basics:

3 bedroom, 2 bath house... fully furnished, sleeps 8.

Fully furnished home, tastefully decorated.

The Beaches:

We are 6 houses from the beautiful beach coastline of Ka'a'awa

No crowds like Waikiki... enjoy both grass and white sand beaches within a short walk.

The Neighborhood:

Our house is on a quiet residential street... you can fall asleep listening to the surf at night.

Conveniently located:

* In the Ka'a'awa Valley where Jurassic Park was filmed

* The Polynesian Cultural Center is about 15 minutes away

* The world famous North Shore is about 25 minutes away

* Honolulu airport is about 40 minutes away

* Waikiki is about 45 minutes away.

The really nice thing about Ka'a'awa : ... is the peacefulness, lack of crowds and natural beauty. You can enjoy our white sand beaches without fighting your way through crowds. The water is a gorgeous blue and there's a natural reef several hundred yards off the coast that keep the waves from being too big and dangerous near the shore.

This is a great place for families or couples, not to mention that it is a great value! There are several other rental homes in Ka'a'awa which are right on or across from the beach. These properties are quite nice, but they also command much higher rental costs. When you stay at our place, you save quite a bit of money and you are also a block off the main highway, which means less traffic and noise.

Ka’a’awa Weather & Climate: The windward side of Oahu has a subtropical climate with prevailing northeasterly trade winds, which are a dominant factor that governs Oahu's pleasant climate. The trade winds are consistent in summer months, and in combination with the warm temperatures gives Oahu and all of Hawaii great conditions for sailing, boating and other outdoor recreational activities. Oahu has two mountain ranges that separate the wet 'windward' side from the drier 'leeward' coast. The Ko’olau Mountains extend along the northeastern side and to the west lies the Waianae Mountains. Showers occur almost daily on the windward side, while on the leeward said, showers are light. Even on the moist windward side, showers occur most frequently during evening hours. Occasionally the trade winds shut down and it can become hot and humid. It is rare, however, for weather to become severe enough to interfere with outdoor plans

Payment Types Accepted: We accept Visa or MasterCard payments

The windward side and Ka'a'awa in particular have special meaning for our 'ohana. Many of our fondest memories have taken place on these windward beaches. And we are so glad that Pono Loa has become a gathering place for our 'ohana, friends and haumana!

Aloha Bob and Laura,
Mahalo again for everything, we had a great time, the house was impeccable, we loved Kaaawa. We even got to climb the mountain behind to check out the view from up there. We will recommend it to everyone.

A Vacation to Remember

Aloha Keahiloa and mahalo to you and your family for the use of your home. We found the house to be well-stocked with everything we needed for our family's three week stay. We enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and our kids really enjoyed meeting their kids. The daily rains were refreshing and the mild temps made us forget the Texas heat.

Our adventures took us all over the island of Oahu. The central location of your home made it easy to get to all them. Some of our favorite destinations included the Bishop Museum, Iolani Palace, and the USS Arizona Memorial and other exhibits within the Pearl Harbor Visitor's Center.

As for outdoor activities, we found the summertime current at North Shore beaches to be ideal for all of us. The swimming, snorkeling, kayaking were all great. (Now as for the surfing...we still need a few lessons!)

My husband and his dad were able to get some mountain hiking in thanks to the nearby Ko'Olau Mountains while I drove the kids up Tantalus Drive to Pu'u Ualaka'a for an awesome view of Honolulu and Diamond Head crater. This was also a nice area to bird watch.

While our days were busy, we were always glad to return to our quiet and comfortable home away from home. Yes the local rooster does crow early, but not for long. Thank you again for your hospitality!

I stayed here a week with my friends. Very spacious, clean, comfortable house. It was VERY close to the beach. I kept traveling to Waikiki (it was a bit of a drive but I didn't mind since I'm used to Los Angeles traffic) and got to enjoy the drive next to the ocean. The house had everything we needed. I hope to stay here again in the future. Thank you for sharing your home with us! Mahalo!

Aloha Keahiloa and Family,

We wanted to thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home during the week of our vacation. It was such a memorable experience. Whenever I travel to Hawaii I usually stay in Waikiki, and it's fine if you want to do the 'tourist thing', but staying at Pono Loa was a real vacation. I woke up every morning to the roosters crowing, drank coffee on the porch with an awesome view of the mountains, met wonderful locals and ate great Hawaiian food. We spent a lot of time at Papa 'Ole's (maybe more time than we should have... Oops!). Spent most of our beach time in Waimea Bay, the drive is breathtaking, or Swanzy Beach which is a convenient walk away. It truly felt like home away from home.

Thank you again for lending us your home, it was more than we could've asked. All of your information and suggestions were greatly appreciated and helped a lot. I can’t wait to go back.

Mahalo and God Bless,

Aloha Keahiloa,
We loved Pono-Loa! Our daughter from California and her husband joined us and they both loved the place too. They said that they would definitely stay there if they came back to Hawai'i. We couldn't believe how well everything was stocked - bedding, bathroom supplies, etc. My husband who loves to cook was really impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked. The kids had fun with the snorkeling gear and boogie boards. The only thing that was a bother was the early crowing of the roosters, but there's not much you can do about that. We understand completely as they are all over Hawaii. My son-in-law figured out a quick fix though... he bought a pair of ear plugs which worked for him.
Again, thank you for letting us share your lovely home and we hope that things continue to go well for you.

Ka’a’awa is located on the windward side of Oahu, near Kahana Bay and Kaoio Point.

This area of Oahu has been described as being “where the Ko’olau Mountains meet the sea.” Ka’a’awa, being on the “windward” side of the island, has some of the best surfing on the islands. Snorkeling and diving are also available in the area, and the sandbars at nearby Kaneohe Beach Park make a very nice spot for easy swimming. Ka’a’awa is also just one mile from Kualoa Ranch, which is a horse ranch that offers 40 minute or 1.5 hour trail rides into the Ka’a’awa Valley. This 4,000-acre ranch also offers helicopter rides, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, mountain biking and more. Opposite the Kualoa Ranch is Kualoa Regional Park. This long, narrow beach is bordered by grassy areas and with the grand Ko’olau Mountains in the background, makes a great place along your windward side tour to sit back and enjoy a picnic lunch. Ka’a’awa is one of the best places on Oahu to enjoy both mountain and ocean views
