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 and Bluray 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 or tablet), 3 kayaks (two 2-person kayaks and one 1-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 or enjoy 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 enjoy any of the activities. The website is www.kualoa.com.
My sister and I took my niece and her best friend after their college graduation this summer! The Mokilii House was ideal for the four of us. We enjoyed many of the ranch amenities and spent a lot of time relaxing on the beach. We can't wait to return for another celebration in the future.
I've read all the positive reviews which I wholeheartedly agree with and decided to write my from a different perspective than most.
My 61 year old husband suffers from an autoimmune disorder affecting his spine. He's had 7 spinal surgeries, 4 of which are rod and screw fusions. He is in pain all the time, varying from 4 to 10 on the Richter scale. Before our flight we spent one night in a Washington State hotel. In the morning his back felt like Polynesian dancers had performed on it all night. The plane ride only worsened matters. It was not a good start. However, the first morning and all subsequent mornings during our 1 week stay at the Mokolii House his pain level was as low as at home on our $4000 bed.
It was reassuring that there was never a moment we felt uneasy anyone would or could break into the house. The front gate is securely locked as is the house itself. No one came up the beach.
While not for everyone, we thoroughly enjoyed the privacy. We gladly traded the Waikiki scantily clad babes for sea turtle babies swimming 20 feet out.
If you can envision awakening each day to the soothing sound of the surf, casually padding into the kitchen for that first cup of coffee all the while being greeted by the pristine blue-green ocean waters through the expansive windows then you're able to see Mokolii House for the treasure it truly is.
My husband and I stayed at the Mokolii Beach House for our honeymoon, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Having the sand and ocean literally RIGHT in your backyard is nothing short of Paradise. The house was perfect for us, and stocked with just about everything you can think of. I'd recommend checking out the house before you go grocery shopping. My husband and I got plenty of use out of the kitchen by making every breakfast at the house, and most dinners. Debbie was very welcoming, and a great resource for any questions we had about the house or the island. She even gave me a piece of the aloe plant in her yard to help my nasty sunburn! Sasha was also very accommodating with prompt responses to email, and thoughtful answers to any questions we had.
Here are some of the activities we enjoyed on the island, that I would recommend to future travelers:
1) Seriously, just spend a day at the house! Put on your favorite music (there's a nice bluetooth speaker - we did this just about every day!), and just relax!
2) You have to take one of the kayaks out (there are 2 singles and 1 tandem). Chinaman's hat is a quick, easy paddle. We packed a cooler and spent the whole afternoon exploring! Just ask Debbie where the best place is to beach the kayak. You can hike to the top, but be prepared with adequate footwear, and know that some paths are better than others.
3) Some of the best snorkeling is at Hanauma Bay. Pure Aloha Adventures has small tours, which I would HIGHLY recommend. Your guide provides all equipment (including float belts for those less comfortable in the water), and teaches you the basics of snorkeling before heading out. The best part was that our guide knew EXACTLY where to look for sea turtles, octopus, eel, etc. We used an entertainment coupon so it was reasonably priced! http://purealohaadventures.com/.
3)Hike up Diamond Head for gorgeous views! We saw people of all ages that could manage this hike. Just bring water and sunscreen, and a good pair of shoes!
4) For the adults who like to party: do a booze cruise! We did one of Tom Barefoot's Tours, a sunset cruise on the Holokai Catamaran, and it was a blast! https://www.tombarefoot.com/things-to-do-in-hawaii/island/oahu/3.
5) Kualoa Ranch. The other reviews have pretty much said it. Highly recommend!
6) Take a day to explore the north shore! We stopped at several beaches (Malaekahana State Recreation Area & Goat Island, Turtle Bay, Banzai Pipeline, Waimea Valley & waterfall).
Sasha, Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us :)
The beach house was exactly like it looks in the pictures, except the Sunrises are Absolutely Amazing...more than you can imagine! The house is clean, has a well stocked kitchen all you need is the food, ample indoor space, lots of electronics we did not even use and plenty of linens. Unfortunately we did not spend much time in the house, the lanai is large with plenty of comfortable seating and the beach is a few steps beyond that! There are lots of extras for the beach and water but if you don't like rocks bring your water shoes.
Simply Gorgeous location! We could not have asked for a more perfect vacation..... We will be back :)
We had such a wonderful time staying at the house on the beach. The house was small, but it was very comfortable for our family of 5. There was plenty of seating, the kitchen was beautiful, loved the inside and outside shower. The king size bed was very comfortable! We were very impressed to see there was even 3 televisions in the rental even though we were never really there to turn them on. :) The location was amazing. The house was located with one side the ocean as well as the back. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and breathtaking. It was the perfect place to watch the sunrise while sitting on the back porch or just 5 steps away the sandy beach.
The house was supplied with so many extras. We also enjoyed the use of the canoes, snorkeling gear and kid toys that were available for us to use. The kitchen was well stocked with any type of kitchen gadget you would ever need. There were plenty of linens.
Loved the place and have mentioned it to many people already. I don't think we could have ever found a better location for our trip. We made memories there that will last a lifetime. We will be back!
We had a wonderful 5-night stay -- me, my husband, and our 10 month old baby in September-October 2015.
First, the house is exceptionally well-equipped. They have everything you need. It is clean, well-kept, well-maintained, and uncluttered. There is a good amount of shelf and drawer space to put your clothes and belongings, so you can unpack and instantly feel at home. The bed linens are very comfortable, and the bed is good quality. I don't usually sleep well in unfamiliar places, but I slept 8+ hours a night. Truly comfortable! The air conditioning in the master bedroom was also awesome. The bathroom is spacious. The clothes washer and dryer are excellent quality. I was really impressed with the quality of everything on the property.
The owner and manager both provided excellent customer service. Sasha and Debi went out of their way to provide things for us that helped make our stay significantly more comfortable and helped lighten our load. Debi even set up the Pack N Play in advance of our arrival so we wouldn't have to find it and set it up -- we were able to bring our baby right in and get her ready for nap time. Debi also provided her own electric kettle so we could boil water to heat our baby's milk. Sasha responded promptly to all of my email questions in advance. It was obvious that both Sasha and Debi genuinely want their guests to have a wonderful experience.
The views from the house are exceptional. It's not just 180 degree views -- it's 270 degrees!!! ! (because of the way the beach curves in along the side of the house.) The beach in the back yard of the house is pristine and peaceful. All you see and hear is OCEAN. And the patio is divine!
A note on weather: we had 2.5 days of sunshine and 2 days of rain/clouds. This is the windward side of the island, so the weather can be wet and mercurial. Not sure how it is during other seasons.
If you are a morning person, this back yard of this home offered the most spectacular oceanfront sunsets I have ever seen.
I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who wants to unwind and relax to the sights and sounds of the waves.
The Mokolii Beach House is located on the beautiful Windward Side of Oahu and is just a 30-minute drive from both the Honolulu airport and the famous North Shore Beaches, and a 45-minute drive to Waikiki. It's 20 minutes from several golf courses and 15 minutes from the town of Kaneohe, where there are plenty of grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, rental shops, shopping, etc. The Polynesian Cultural Center is only 20 minutes away and Kualoa Ranch and Activity Club is directly across the street. Deborah Walton is our amazing on-site property manager and can help you with any questions you may have during your stay. This beach house is perfect for families, friends, a romantic getaway, or just to get away from it all!! Please no pets. And no smoking inside the house. Our local contact is Deborah and her number is 808-220-0747, but please contact Sasha for rentals.
