The stay was great, the location amazing, and Mr.
Shang was very nice! He let us borrow snorkel gear
and boogie boards which would have been $$$ to
rent. Oahu is a great place to stay in Hawaii, it has
so much to do that you'll never get bored. We were
staying for our Honeymoon and it was very private
and romantic. The East wing had an amazing view,
we must have took about 500 pictures from there.
Tony was very nice and escorted us to the location
because we had to take the back road since they
were doing construction on the normal road, and
although it was a long drive it was beautiful! The
next time we're in Oahu we will definitely stay at
the Best of Honolulu!
My wife and I have come to Hawaii several times in the last few years. We have always stayed in Hotels. This last visit we tried renting instead of staying in hotels. This place far exceeded our expectations. Mr. Chen was very nice, helpful, accommodating, and he went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. The views from this house are outstanding. Most evenings we would take time to sit in the gazebo, go over the day's activities, talk about tomorrow's activities, and take great pictures. When we come back again we hope this wonderful place will be available for us to stay. After staying here, I doubt if we would try to rent any other place. That's how wonderful this place was. Thank you Mr. Chen for making this visit to the islands a memorable one.
What a place to stay on your first trip to Hawaii, Mr Chen the owner of this FABULOUS home was such a nice host and gentlemen to my wife and SON
which jsut couldn't get enough of Mr Chen. Mr Chen took my SON and NIECE fron KANSAS to pick some type of Chinese grapefruit that was delicious, also Mr Chen had al the amenties that we needed to go Scuba diving, Snorkeling,bike riding and even sand toys for the small ones. There are only 3 words to explain Mr Chen (What a Guy) my 7 yearold son told Mr Chen that HE ROCKS and we will se him next year, that is FOR SURE. There is no other place in Honolulu or surrounding area that had a BETTER VIEW of the city at Night and the fireworks on friday from waikiki beach. I RECOMMEND THIS HOME TO ANY ONE THAT WANTS TO JUST RELAX AND JUST HAVE A GREAT TIME IN HAWAII
Thank you MR CHEN

Magnificent view and great place for vacation!!! It was much more than we expected. The marvelous view, very neat and well furnished house, beautiful bath set, ........were really impressive. Also many thanks for the warm hospitality of Mr. & Mrs. CHEN who had made our trip the most pleasurable. We would say it was the most enjoyable trip we have ever had. Our kids and friends who traveled with us all agreed. We cannot wait to plan for our next trip to Honolulu and stay in the beautiful house again.

The place is amazing, and does feel a bit like a
home away from home. The Pictures don't do this
wonderful getaway justice. The view is phenomanal
and the ammenities far better than we hoped. My
wife and I can't wait to return. The best thing about
our stay was the owners who were helpful and
hospitable but not intrusive, we asked them
questions about the island and they gave us great
advice where to go and what to see. Super people
and an incredible vacation place on and an
incredible island paradise.
