Guestbook comments from the owner

Pono Hale At Gold Coast was perfect for our holiday, the photos are an exact representation of what it looks like. This exceptional house which accommodates 8 people is in a great location in Diamond Head. Only a short stroll to the local beach or a 15min walk into Waikiki. From the first step inside this beautiful accommodation you sense the feeling of serenity and comfort. There are 3 large bedrooms, the main bedroom has a balcony for a quite reading spot or just a quite place to relax. It has a fully equipped kitchen, large dinning area, 3 separate sitting areas and a private TV room off the main bedroom upstairs giving everyone their own space inside or outside you could relax by the pool. You are close to many of the attraction that Hawaii has to offer i.e. Pearl Harbour, Kapionlani Park, fabulous shopping and of course great restaurants. We would highly recommend this accommodation for any family or couples looking for a private and relaxing holiday. You won’t be disappointed.

A superb house that was ideal for our family wedding party

  • 5 of 5

The Pono Hale house was ideally located at Diamond Head. The interior of the house has plenty of space with three living areas. The upstairs bedroom is huge with privacy and heaps of storage

The pool and spa were utilised constantly by our party. Easy walking distance to Waikiki and a beautiful little beach around the corner.

Very nice, comfortable, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We are local residents and recently had to stay at four different vacation rentals when our home was damaged. Pono Hale was the best by a mile and they were all the same price. The house is in excellent repair, everything is tasteful and the property manager Eva is delightful. This property was not a disappointment in any way. When we have friends in from out of town we will definitely tell them to stay here. Thank you!

This was the first time I have used VRBO to book a vacation rental. We had a diverse group, including my parents, my 2 sons (ages 4 and 2), and my sister and her partner.

We were all thrilled with our vacation rental choice. We lived in Hawaii for 10+ years prior to moving back to Canada, so we had an idea of where we wanted to stay - in our opinion, this small neighborhood has always been the best location on Oahu. It is quiet but very conveniently located. It is a 10 minute walk to Kaimana Beach (very family friendly), a 5 minute walk to great surf (Diamond Head) and a 20 minute walk into the bustle of Waikiki, including some great restaurants (Side Street Inn and Tokkuri-Tei are our favourites). Other walkable locations are Diamond Head crater and Kapiolani Farmers Market.

The house is amazing - very clean, modern, spacious, and well appointed. The kids spent hours in the pool. Tami, the owner, was wonderful to deal with. The property manager greeted us on our arrival; we had a few minor issues with the appliances that were dealt with in a very timely manner. We had a number of local friends come visit while we were there, and they were all very very impressed with the property.

The only con about the property is that it doesn't have much of a yard, but this is to be expected in this neighborhood.

Otherwise, this is really a dream vacation rental. An amazing house in the best neighborhood on Oahu. I would highly, highly recommend this rental to anyone - it is worth every penny!

Pono Hale House

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in many places in Oahu over the years, but for the last two years we have stayed at the Pono Hale house and thoroughly enjoy it. A fantastic place for the family with the pool, and proximity to good surfing and beaches. it is well managed, and well maintained. We highly recommend it.

It was the perfect home for our Hawaiian vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Hawaii annually for over 8 years. As our family has grew over the years, we decided to rent a house instead. We picked this property because we are very familiar with the neighborhood and the overall presentation of the property.

The minute we arrived at the house, we concluded that despite the beautiful pictures and detailed description of the house, the house still managed to exceed our expectation. It is absolutely the perfect house for a Hawaiian vacation. It is everything that the description says and then much more.

As I write this review, I am almost tempted to avoid writing such a glowing review, since for selfish reasons, we don't want the house to be overbooked and thus unavailable when we visit for our next vacation.

Feel good and confident about reserving this house for your next vacation. It will be the best decision that you made.

A Tropical Delight

  • 5 of 5

What a tropical delight. The house is only a block from the water. Our family completely relaxed in the Pono Hale home. The proximity to the beach, shopping centers and Diamond Head was unbelievable. In fact, you could relax in the pool and look up at Diamond Head. The openness of the floor plan added to the tropical atmosphere. There was ample room for everyone to enjoy all the comforts of a home verses the confinement of a hotel room. There were several restaurants within easy walking distance. Kapiolani Park was at the end of the street which made it easy for jogging, walking and relaxing. Kaimana Beach, one of Oahu's best beaches, was roughly a five-minute walk from the house. Would we return to Pono Hale? Absolutely!! Would we recommend it to friends or relatives? In a heartbeat.
