This Hawaiiana designed home sits at the end of Koko Head and looks directly across Maunalua Bay at Diamond Head and Kahala. This neighborhood is known for its beautiful private homes, open ocean views (great for whale watching in the winter months),ocean access through city and county maintained regional grounds, as well as, great fishing off the rocky cliffs and reefs. This large, 3000-square-foot home is located on a half acre and tropically landscaped. The house is fully furnished as the owner lives there part of the year. All amenities are included.
Perfect for Weddings up to 35 guests, with the wide open layout and plenty of room in the yard, both the pool side lanai between the hot tub and lanai and the Diamond Head yard with great views from the grass.
We are in Hawaii Kai just a little over a mile from Koko Marina and Hanauma Bay. We are 20 minutes from Waikiki and about 30 minutes from the airport. The Koko Marina Shopping Center has an Eight-Plex Movie Theater with Stadium Seating, Blockbuster Movie Rental, Foodland Grocery Store, Starbucks, Subway, 24 Hour Fitness, as well as, a number of other restaurants and shops. Just a mile across the bay there are several other familiar stores; Costco, Safeway, City Mill Hardware, McDonalds, Longs and Ross, just to mention a few.
Water is everywhere...hot tub and pool in the back yard or just step across the street onto the ocean cliffs. One block down the street, sit on a private sandy beach.
The master bedroom is just inside the entrance and has a king size bed,a large double wardrobe and private bathroom. Both of the other bedrooms have queen beds and they share one full and one half bathrooms at the rear of the house. We also have a king size 'Pune'e', a full size convertible futon, a twin roll away, three folding futons and an inflatable mattress. We have individual room air conditioners in the bedrooms for personal preferences.
The kitchen is in the middle of the house and has ocean view from the sink. The GRAND VIEW is from the living area which is a large hexagon with vaulted ceiling, large fan and three sets of twelve foot sliding glass windows facing the ocean.
We have four televisions and several VCRs plus two DVD players. There are games for the whole family: cribbage, dominos, Yatzee, Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit and others. We have lots of room for a fun game of croquet in the large grass front yard.

Aloha! Lynn and I purchased Hale Hawaii Kai in June of 2005. I had rented the house since March of 2000. I started the gardening immediately and once I purchased the house put the lanscaping in HIGH GEAR. We also added a pool. I have photos of Lynn on the excavator digging the pool...she is good! We renovated the entire property inside and out: paint, cabinets, eaves, bathrooms and wardrobes. This property is the LOVE OF MY LIFE, next to Lynn! We enjoy our guests' holidays almost as much as they do. We enjoy taking them surfing, kayaking and hiking.
Edgar Miner purchased this house in 2005
I have a very flexible schedule which allows me to manage the vacation rental, I have traveled extensively and enjoying meeting people from around the world. When guests have an interest I take them sight seeing or shopping around the island.
Besides being a beautiful place to have a wedding or reception, this property is ideally located, close to Waikiki but not in the busy downtown area. We have incredible views, warm water, restaurants and activities close at hand. Famous Hanauma Bay is just 2 minutes away. There are beautiful cliffs to climb and great surf just 1 minute from the front door! Walking in the neighborhood you will see some of the most beautiful homes on the island.
This review is long overdue!!! My wife and I recently got married in Hawaii (we live in NYC but she is from Hawaii) and we wanted to rent an authentic Hawaiian home that we could share with my family for the week prior to the wedding. We couldn't have been happier with our selection. Not only is the location perfect, but the home is exactly what we expected...a truly Hawaiian experience! I also cannot say enough about the owners, Edgar and Lynn. They are overwhelmingly genuine, happy and wonderful hosts (as are their pups who wander through the home randomly to greet guests or take naps on the comfy carpet). They make you feel like you are part of their family and there is nothing fake about their sincerity. They even got us a wedding gift which was truly unexpected but very much appreciated. I can't recommend Hawaii Kai enough and I am so thankful for my short opportunity to spend time in this amazing place with these amazing people.
Just spent a week here with great success. Edgar is a very accommodating host. The home worked out well....within 20 minutes of just about anything you willing wish to do. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the place needs a little sprucing up. No big deal though.
Edgar was amazing! as was his beautiful home that we stayed at. We had about 13 people staying together and Edgar's home was more than sufficient to house all of us. The hot tub and pool were awesome and as was the location. It was close to the beach and he even had tons of things at the house so we didn't require rentals. Would definitely stay there again!
We just returned from a beautiful, relaxing vacation at this “Aloha” spirit home. The house is in a perfect location (an easy drive away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, an easy drive from the beautiful beaches on the way to the North Shore). This house is lovely, warm, and inviting; it is comfortable and absolutely a place to relax and rejuvenate. We had three families living in the house and there was plenty of room and there was no feeling of being crowded.
Edgar is a terrific host. He provided us with tips and information about places to go and beaches to see. Everything he suggested turned out to be wonderful. Lynn is friendly and a delight to chat with. We enjoyed several talks with Edgar and Lynn and they are truly gracious, friendly hosts.
We can, without any hesitation, highly recommend this home to anyone who wants a fantastic, beautiful, wonderful place to relax when visiting Ohau.
We just got back from our vacation and stayed here for 6 days. It was even better than what we expected, and the pictures don't do the place justice! We were in a group of 6 and we had lots of space that didn't feel crowded (hard to come by with that big of a group!). Great location, still close to the city (about 20-30 minutes) but far enough to have plenty of privacy. Also, the China Walls were within walking distance (one of our favorite spots during our time in HI). Edgar had amazing communication and was a very happy, easy-going guy who was pleasant doing business with. Highly recommended!!! Thanks again, Edgar! :)
