Located directly on a quiet beach, with oceanfront views on two sides and a breathtaking view of Kaneohe Bay, Mokolii Island and the cliffs of Kualoa, the Mokolii Beach House offers the perfect spot for a fun, relaxing vacation. The house has two pleasant bedrooms, modern kitchen and bath, dining area, living room, den with cable TV, Bluray, and CD/Ipod player, and a large beachfront patio. The house offers both indoor and outdoor showers, a/c in the master bedroom, wireless internet access (you must bring your own laptop), two-person kayak, charcoal BBQ grill, and washer/dryer. The beach is good for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, and fishing. Paddle out to the breakers and try your hand at surfing, kayaking, boogie-boarding, or windsurfing (rental equipment nearby). Just across the street is historic Kualoa Ranch and Activity Club, where horseback riding, ATV's, movie site tours, jungle expeditions, secret island, hiking, ocean catamaran rides and other activities are available. The owner, Sasha, can get you a discount at Kualoa Ranch if you would like to partake in any of the activities. The website for the ranch is www.kualoa.com. Just let her know in your email.
We stayed for two weeks for our honeymoon, it could not have been more perfect. The house was amazing, with everything you need and more, but the views were unbelievable. We both could not believe the outstanding sunrises over the ocean and the views of the mountains behind us. It was like we were in a movie. Sasha, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and even got us a great discount at the ranch across the street. Definitely do the ATV tour, it Is so much fun! Deb was amazing and very helpful! We have only been back for a week and already planning to go back as soon as we can. You will not find a better place to stay than this house! We stayed in Waikiki at the Royal Hawaiian for two days before we left to go home and wished we had just extended our stay here instead. Next time we will only stay here, it is better than any five star hotel or resort. Thank you so much to Sasha and Deb for everything, we had the perfect honeymoon! We miss you Deb, Brian, Zorra, and Gizmo, hopefully we can come back soon.
My wife and I really enjoyed our 10 day stay at the Mokoli Beach House and cannot wait to return. The house was exactly what we wanted. The house is out of the city, but close enough to all of the attractions that we wanted to see whether they were on the North or South Shore. The house is 35 minutes to Waikiki, 45 minutes to Pearl Harbor, 45 minutes to Diamond Head and 45 minutes to Waimea Bay which was our favorite beach.
We went with another couple and never once felt cramped. The kitchen is big and has everything that you need. We put the Weber grill to work and enjoyed dinner on the patio almost every night. The property manager lives on the property, but she does a WONDERFUL job staying out the way and she was very helpful with recommendations and small things like wifi passwords.
I would highly recommend this place for adults who want to have their own private beach house on Oahu for a few days. It would even be good for people with kids since there is a beach 20ft from the back door.
My wife and I came to Oahu for our 25th anniversary. We don't like to be "in the middle of it" so we were looking for a location that was close enough to what we needed and far enough away to relax. Having never been to Hawaii myself it was a bit of a shot in the dark but the price was excellent as were the reviews. We could not have been happier.
The home and location are as advertised and reviewed. It is clean and cozy with gated access and the water is just a short 20 steps from your lanai where we would watch the sun & moon rise. There is nothing to the right of the home and the Kualoa Ranch is behind you leaving you with a pretty much unobstructed view of the mountains and waters.
Having all the amenities we needed to hide out was perfect. Washer, dryer, full kitchen with microwave, nice Weber grill as well as cable and internet. The AC was nice on warmer evenings but once you opened up the house and let the air run through it cooled off quickly. We snorkeled quite a bit there at the house and found the outdoor shower to be priceless. There is a door that leads to the bathroom right beside it which helped keep the house tidy.
And while the property manager Debbie lives behind the house, don't let that be a concern. She was around when you needed her and not when you didn't. She provided a great deal of recommendations as to the local things to do from restaurants to shopping and sights to see. Debbie is a good neighbor.
If you are going to take advantage of this home there are some things I would recommend before heading out to the house. First, get a Costco card and load up in Honolulu before heading out to the house. The price of groceries is a bit steep on the island and this can go a long way to stretching your dollars. Then supplement as needed from the local stores.
The other is that if you are going to spend time in the water at the house make sure you have water shoes or dive boots. There is quite a bit of coral and rocks around and without them it would be tricky and possibly painful in the water. Don't let that deter you though. The water is reasonably clear and we found great for snorkeling on the calmer days, which for us was most.
Finally, the people there in general are just so friendly. We went to some local farmers markets to pick up fresh fruits and found the islands very relaxed pace refreshing.
In all it was a great trip. We will be back, hopefully sooner than later.
What can we say, what can't we say when you visit the Mokolii Beach House. Want to be close to the Ocean - 25 ft away. Want to see the sun rise in the morning, stand on the Lanai with a cup of Kona coffee and luxuriate in the beauty. Want activities, horseback riding, ATV treks, hiking on a 4000 acre working ranch - 2 minutes walk away across the street.
Want island culture, Polynesian cultural center 20 minutes away, north shore 30 minutes away along one of the most breathtaking coastal drives I've ever seen.
Shopping - Honolulu 30 minutes away to get to the royal mile with every shopping experience you can think of.
Just want to relax, sit on the Lanai and listen to the ocean take those troubles away. All from a great house with Island hospitality provided by Debi. She welcomed us the second we hit the driveway with helpful advice and always willing to spend a few minutes talking about things if we wanted to.
Overall - great experience, we'll be back and already recommending to friends.

When they talked about location this is what it must mean because you are on the beach in just a few steps, the house has all you need to stay here for a few days or weeks. This being our go to place to get away from a busy life and enjoy the peace of listing to the surf and enjoy the water.
Having the Pacific Ocean in our backyard was a great escape from our long and cold winter in the Midwest. We snorkeled and swam almost every day while seeing various kinds of tropical fish. It was nice having an outdoor shower to wash the sand off our feet before entering the house and having a washing machine and dryer which allowed us to pack lighter and bring less clothing along. The kitchen had everything you need for cooking including a dishwasher, range, and microwave. Sasha was very accommodating when we made our arrangements and when we had to change them because of a change to our flight. We look forward to coming back to this ocean retreat someday!
