|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
Set on the slopes of Koko Head Crater, this spacious, two-story, family-style home offers panoramic ocean views and breathtaking sunset over Diamond Head. Decorated with a touch of island decor, this villa is perfect for indoor/outdoor living.
The large full kitchen, two living room areas, and large lanais provide plenty of room for families and friends to relax.
Enjoy a swim in the private, solar-heated swimming pool after a day at the beach. Watch all the water activities at Maunalua Bay. And if you're lucky, you may spot a few whales during their season.
The magical night lights which grace the nearby hillside, with the moon and stars, totally change Hale Ohana's ambiance.
Nearby beaches include Portlock (five minutes away), and Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach (both about five to eight minutes away). Hale Ohana offers the best of both worlds: privacy, great family accommodations -- and, of course, convenience with Waikiki only 20 minutes away. Hawaii Kai offers great entertainment and dining, lots of shopping, close by beaches.

This property was by far exceeded my expectation. I did an extensive research prior to selecting the vacation rental to have great time with my family. Hale Ohana had it all. The view from the entire house was phenomenal and you get the constant breeze from the ocean which is very pleasant. We only used AC in master bed for few times because it was not needed with great working fans and Windows. House was well stocked that with 10 people staying for 10 days, we didn't need to buy any toilet papers. Kitchen is better stocked than mine. They even had a basket full of toys for kids which my kids loved. Pool was great and had many pool/beach toys. We had more than plenty of bath and beach towels, cooking essentials such as olive oil, even ramen, etc. we were greeted with a nice fruit plate with coffee, chocolate covered macadamia nuts and potato chips. Costco was so close and you have just about anything you need within 5 min drive. Guest binder was super helpful and we were able to try different restaurants based on reviews in that binder. Hale Ohana is centrally located and it was very convenient for us for any sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, you name it. We will be back to Hale Ohana in the future! At last, but not least, you have one of the best property manager who will be so easy to contact and help you with anything you need. From when we reserve this location to even after we left, Eva helped us through everything. She is professional, has attention to detail, and kind. I did not want to leave Hale Ohana. Similar to previous reviews, because they didn't have guest arriving right next day, Eva let us stayed until 2pm for a late checkout because our flight was not until 4pm. It was truly a home away from home.
Just got back from a week stay at the Hale Ohana. First time using VRBO and first time visiting Hawaii. Took the whole family of 5. This was absolutely the best rental experience ever! The house sets in a beautiful well maintained neighborhood just far enough off the main drag yet close enough to everything! So peaceful and relaxing, words just cannot explain. The view is unbelievable! literally 20 minutes from everything from Waikiki beach to the Dole plantation. Sandy beach is just a couple miles away and Hanauma Bay is just around the block.
The house is huge! It has everything needed to a comfortable stay. Plenty of room to move around with 2 newer flat screen TV's, with cable and WiFi that worked perfectly. Stocked with enough towels and linens to keep our family of 5 going. The washer and dryer came in very handy. The pool was perfect. Complete with a BBQ grill. Eva and the rental company were easy to deal with and didn't bother or interfere with our week at all. The welcome basket of fruit was a wonderfu surprise! The neighbors are all quiet and left us alone without complaint. I just cant say enough about the Hale Ohana.
The only negative was that the alarm system did not work - but it wasn't really needed. The neighborhood is so nice that we didn't feel like we even had to lock the doors. If we ever make it back to Oahu we will definitely stay again at the Hale Ohana. Thank you for making our vacation dream come true!!!
3 women from New Zealand + 3 women from California + week-long reunion in Hawaii = wonderful vacation!
We've just returned home after a wonderful week staying at this property. With plenty of beds and bathrooms, a great kitchen and several living areas it was perfect for us. That's without mentioning the swimming pool which was so nice to jump into at the end of a busy day. As mentioned in other reviews, the house is very well stocked with good quality linen, crockery and cutlery, and lots of little extras, such as the welcome basket.
Eva was so good to deal with, and those of us with a late night flight home really appreciated being able to stay in the house until the evening.
The house is in a wonderful location with absolutely stunning views. We had a rental car (which I'd recommend) and the easy drive to Waikiki was around 15-20 minutes, but it's only a 10 minute walk to the bus stop which is on the main road.
It wasn't easy finding accommodation for the 6 of us, and after staying here we all agreed this was a great choice. Would totally recommend this property for families and groups.
We stayed at Hale Ohana for 2 weeks and had a great time. Having the pool available when we got back from excursions and shopping was wonderful. Eva was SO accommodating in letting us stay at the home until we had to leave for the airport for our late flight. The welcome basket, and ground coffee were greatly appreciated. Having a Costco & Safeway so close to the home was also great. The only problem we has was our vacation went by very fast as there was absolutely NO pressure. A car is needed unless you want to walk a short distance for the BUS.
Beautiful location, beautiful house, well run (check in), and the best stocked (towels, dishes, soap) of any VRBO rental we have used.
The house is in a nearly ideal location; near Haunama Bay, near restaurants (Roys, yum) but away in a quiet neighborhood setting. If you are coming to "Paaartay!", DON'T go to this house. It is a lovely place in a neighborhood and loud foolish behavior would be out of place.
The house was surprising large. It could easily sleep 8. We appreciated the extensive dishes / silverware and other household supplies. Many rental places don't have paper towels or even toilet paper when you arrive. Hale Ohana was excellently managed and supplied. We appreciated the drinks in the refrigerator and welcome fruit basket.There were even 6 beautiful orchid plants around the house.
The pool was excellently maintained and appreciated by all. The driveway was challenging but view was worth it. The multiple lanais off many rooms just added to the paradise feel.
If we were to return, we would definitely stay here again. Our only very minor complaint was with the island of Oahu - which felt too urbanized after having come from the Big Island.
All I can say is - WOW!! Me and 5 of my good friends had the pleasure of staying at this residence from May 15 - May 22, 2010 and I still can't believe we booked such an amazing place. From the moment we drove up the hill and long driveway, we were astonished at how lucky we were to book such an aesthetically wonderful place. That is only where the fun began!!
All the rooms were quite large and had more than enough space for us. Each bedroom and the living room and dining area all had decks so that you could sit out there and enjoy the view. OH THE VIEW!!!! As you can see from the pictures, it doesn't get much better than that. The living room was quite comfortable with a new flatscreen TV which we did use to watch NHL Playoff games.
This place would receive a wonderful grade if there were not a pool but ALAS there is one and it is beautiful (as you can see). Coming home after a long day at the beach and being able to take a nice dip after eating a nice meal was wonderful. We did have the luxury of cooking our own meals at this place and did take advantage of it by purchasing steaks and seafood and the Costco that was a half mile away.
Costco wasn't the only thing that was close however, as Sandy Beach and Hanauma Bay were literally less than a mile away. My favorite was Sandy Beach for the amazing body surfing and HUGE waves, but Hunauma Bay offered some of the best snorkeling I have ever seen. If you are worried about Waikiki, it took us about 15 minutes to get there when we needed to but too be honest we preferred the house and beaches along the coast that were very close to this house.
Lastly, Eva (property manager) was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She was very accommodating and even let us stay quite late on our last day due to our late flight back to the East Coast. Julie (the cleaning person) was also great as she worked around us as we frantically packed for our flight home.
Overall, an amazing experience at an amazing place. If I ever go back to Hawaii, I will absolutely do my best to secure this place again. The picture from my bedroom is now the screensaver on my phone so it will remind me of all the great times we had there.
