About the property

3BR Oceanside Vacation Rental Kaaawa, Hawaii USA

With the beach at your back door and a breathtaking view across Kaneohe Bay and the cliffs of Kualoa forming the back drop, the setting of this family beach house is perfect for a fun filled Hawaiian vacation. The house has a full kitchen and laundry, a breakfast nook and dining room, a large open living room, and a beachside covered porch, as well as three pleasant bedrooms and one bath. Coconut, plumeria, and sea grape trees frame the house, which is lulled by the sound of the waves and the swishing of palm fronds. The quiet beach is ideal for playing, sunning, and snorkeling. The calm surf is perfect for children. Water in front of the house is normally three to four feet deep at high tide. Perfect for kayaking. A short walk or drive will bring you to historic Kualoa Ranch where movie set tours (such as Mighty Joe Young, Wind Talker, Jurassic Park 1, 50 First Dates, Along came Polly and more), hiking, horseback riding, tennis, and other activities are available.

This peaceful location is only 40 minutes from Honolulu and from the famous North Shore beaches. It's 20 minutes from several golf courses including Koolau -- the toughest in the United States. Shopping, movies, and restaurants are within eight miles.

Mill House in December

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay there and enjoyed the house and Debby and Sacha. They were so helpful and made us feel at ease. Great central location, and how wonderful to have the ocean at your back door. I can't describe the beautiful sunrises, but we have many photos. We ate very healthy meals with all the local fruits and vegetables, and enjoyed the ranch with is very close by. Having been raised in Oahu, this is more like it used to be.

GREAT family vacation home, absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 was looking for a quiet place to relax in Hawaii and this was EXACTLY what we needed. The house is actually much bigger than it appears in the photos and the beach is PERFECT. In the morning we drank coffee on the beach and watched the turtles swim. In the evening we drank mai tais on the beach and watched the small sand crabs dig holes. We felt like we had our very own private beach. Our children swam in the ocean here (it's very safe, just wear water shoes!) and loved the house, too. We were about 30-45 mins from both Honolulu and the North Shore. The house has everything you could possibly need and was VERY clean. We really appreciated the snorkeling gear that was provided. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to use the kayak to go explore the island. We wanted to do everything on Oahu this trip so we didn't need to ever go back, as we want to explore the other islands. However, THIS HOUSE will more than likely bring us back, it was that perfect. If you want a semi-private location, with a perfect location to relax, this is it.

Better than we imagined. Having a private beach is the most amazing way to experience Hawaii.

  • 5 of 5

The property is great, nothing fancy but all the amenities that you need are here. We spent the majority of our time on the lanai or on the beach. Can't wait to come back to this house, no need to search for another property.

Perfect vacation rental on the beach! Very memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we unlocked the door The Mill House had it all....a neat, clean and comfortable home with the ocean out the back door. We loved the spacious main living area with sliding glass doors that opened onto an equally spacious lanai. Our hostess, Deb, was very friendly and helpful. We also appreciated the assortment of water gear and the use of the kayaks. We hope to come back soon!

We loved staying here!!! Plenty of room for a family of 5! The location is great! Less than an hour drive to everywhere we wanted to go. The Kualoa Ranch right across the street was so much fun, The Polynesian Cultural Center was 15 minutes down the road.

The beach in the back was beautiful. We saw turtles swimming in the water almost every evening. Our teenage girls took advantage of the snorkel gear and swam around the reef. They had fun with the kayak as well. Quick drive or walk to the park that had "waves" the girls could swim and jump waves. Great local restaurants near by.

The only downfall was the street noise in the front bedroom and kitchen, but the view of the Mountain made up for the noise in the kitchen. There is no AC, however the Master bedroom and living room stayed cool with the breezes and ceiling fan. The other two bedrooms could have used an a/c unit. The house was very clean, and better then described. OVER ALL I would stay here time and time again and would reccomend this property to everyone.

Amazing Vacation at The Mill House!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Mill House was everything we expected and more!

The property is beautiful with everything anyone can think for a prefect vacation! it was a dream vacation!

The property was cleaned, spacious, well maintained, well equipped! and when Tom says everything you will need will be at the House, he really means that. The pictures are not enough to fully describe the house, I would suggest updating some of the pictures. The master bedroom has a million dollar view to beautiful sunrises, with big windows to left the breeze come thru and refresh the room, the ceiling fans thru most of the house were great to keep the air flowing, except the small bedroom that could use a good ceiling fan; the back porch is incredible fully furnish, with toys and water gear, and just steps away from the beach' having kayaks available was also fantastic.

The location could not be better, very centrally located making it is very easy to get around to visit attractions, restaurants, beaches, and just across from the beautiful Kualoa Ranch, we were able to walk there!

Deborah was great, very friendly and Tom was very easy to deal with.

My husband, sons and their girlfriends loved everything about the house, my granddaughter had the most fun!

We went to celebrate my 50th birthday and it was the most incredible birthday I ever had. It was very hard to leave the house.

I would definitely recommend the house to others and I would love to come again to the Mill House.
