What makes this house unique

This property is especially suited for guests who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and eating out daily. Seabreeze offers you

a fully equipped kitchen with utensils and a place where you can relax, chill out with more elbow room. Road side parking is free and close by the unit. We are stone's throw away from Safeway, Costco and Koko Marina Shopping Mall, where you'll find affordable ethnic gourmet dining galore when you are tired of cooking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay here this last week at your place was MORE than expected. Everything

was perfect--so clean and decorated with first class furnishings.

As a visiting "Kama'aina," it felt like our home away from home. We will be back

on our next visit for sure.



Aloha, Rhona and husband.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my two children 12 and 17. The place was beautiful and we loved having a home to come back to in the evening as well as to relax if we didn't want to go out that day. I would stay here again without my children. We were leery of making noise after my children were asked (very polietly) to keep it down in the pool. After that we weren't comfortable being outside because we weren't sure how loud was acceptable since I didn't think they were very loud. For someone single or a couple this is an amazing place to stay and the owners are very kind and helpful if you need anything. You will enjoy your stay here.

Beautiful and very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Seabreeze! The home is in a beautiful neighborhood, backs up to gorgeous tropical woods, and is furnished very nicely to accommodate 5 comfortably. The home is very clean and well maintained. My husband and I would be happy to stay here again on future trips to Hawaii. The welcome basket with fruit, coffee, chocolate, and sweet bread was truly appreciated after 12 hours of traveling. Thank you Paulette and Hernando!

Great location, wonderful hosts, enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Seabreeze the past 4 years, for a whole month the last few years. You get the

whole lower level of their beautiful home with 2 BR and 2 Bath, well equipped kitchen, access to the

private pool and patio. The place has always been very clean. The owners live on the upper floor of

the home, but you rarely hear or see them, as they try not intrude on your space. It feels like the pool

and deck are your private domain. They are very friendly and will give you advice or will do

everything they can to make your stay comfortable. The location in Hawaii Kai is very quiet as they

back onto a forested conservation area. Staying in Hawaii Kai is ideal for us as it is close to shopping

and restaurants in Hawaii Kai, Kahala and Kaimuki (the farthest only about 15 minutes away by car).

There is close access to H1 going West or to Waikiki, and East towards Hanauma Bay, Waimanalo and

Kailua on the Windward side of Oahu. We have gotten to know the owners over our stays and we

consider them ohana, not just landlords. Born and raised in Hawaii and being long-time Oahu

residents, they have a deep understanding of Hawaii and the aloha spirit. We appreciate their

hospitality and friendship, and will definitely be staying there again next time we are on Oahu.

Met and exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as we expected, clean, comfortable and homelike. We were seeking a refuge from the downtown Honolulu crowds and traffic. This was perfect. Restaurants, Safeway and Costco were only one mile away. The food at Kona Brewing and Island Coffee were good. The line for breakfast at Moena (sp?) Cafe was too long. I used the pool everyday with no problem with it being unheated. Our trip was confined to the south and Windward side of the island. Seabreeze was more than convenient for our purposes. One day it took us less than 30 minutes to return from Kailua Bay (very little traffic). I would have to stretch to find any complaint. How about we could have used one more wine glass. We would recommend Seabreeze to others who would like to be away from Honolulu which is only 15-20 minutes away. I forgot to mention that the overall setting is wonderful. Although we only had a brief conversation, Hernando, thank you.

Excellent Accomodation, Perfect Quiet Location.

  • 5 of 5

We are a party of three - father, mother and thirteen year old son from the UK and this was our second visit to Oahu and I have to say it was the perfect accomodation choice. Hawaii Kai is close enough to Honolulu to be easy to see the sites but still in a quiet relaxing vallley if you don't want the hussle of a big city.

The location in quiet Hawaii Kai was perfect for relaxing and acted as a great base for exploring as it was only a short drive to Diamond head, Waikiki or even back to the windward coast. I would say that having a car is essential to get the best from this location. The local beachs are bueatiful but there are so many different kinds of beaches to explore on Oahu you should really be prepared to travel around.

We spent 7 nights in the extremely well equipped condo which has all the amenities you need for a relaxed stay with comfortable beds and good quality furnishings and appliances. The kitchen is well equipped and we prepared some meals ourselves in the unit as well as dining out.

The owners live on site but are not obtrusive and we met Hernando a couple of times in the garden and had an enjoyable covnversation in which he always had good advice about places to visit. The owners have included many things to help make your stay more comfortable including beach equipment which came in very handy when we went to the Nortth Shore.

they alos left us Coffee, Water, Sweet Bread and choclates aas a welcome package which just goes to show how thoughtful they are in looking after their guests.

The condo itself is clean and well maintained with good quality furniture and appliances. The only thing missing is a dishwasher but I guess this is down to space requirements and no one minds washing a few dishes by hand. The air conditioning in the unit is very effective and kept the temperature very comfortable during the day.

However, the jewel in the crown for this unit is the use of the private pool which is wonderful and set in lovely gardens. We found the water very warm to swim in July and extremely refreshing after a hot afternoon shopping or sunbathing and this makes what is already a good rental into a really great one for us.

Hernando and Paulette are wonderful hosts we will definitely be coming back here next time we visit Oahu.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time of writing a very positive review. We wish all our guests were as considerate as your family, for being quiet and considerate during your stay and to the neighbors when using the pool. You also made our cleaners very happy as you followed every exit instructions and made their job concise & effortless. Hernando and Paulette.

House on the island

  • 4 of 5

This house was just as shown, very clean and very quiet. The home is at the very top of a steep hill and backs up to a huge mountain of Hawaiian plants and shrubs, sitting by the pool is like the Garden of Eden. The owners live upstairs so you really must be quiet at all times, but they are very kind and friendly and willing to show you all the aspects of the house. The pool is not heated and much too cold to swim in. We really appreciated the cold drinks, fruit and bread that was left at the house, we were also allowed to use all the beach furniture, including chairs, umbrella and ice chest- which allowed us to go to all the different beaches in the area in style. They also had all the books with things to do so don't haul them from the library like I did. This home really has everything for a nice quiet vacation, however I wish I had done my homework as everything our family wanted to do was on the North Shore.
