Give yourself and your family a wonderful Hawaiian vacation!!!
Our family of 7 stayed at Cristin's house for 10 Days. We loved our stay there. If we would return to Honolulu, we would look no further than Cristin's house. The house was in a very good location. From the lani, we could see Diamond head and the Honolulu skyline and the ocean. We saw fireworks on the 4th of July from the lani. The house was in great working order and had a well stocked kitchen with everything we needed to get our vacation off to a great start. The house was very comfortable for the 7 of us. Loved it!! Thanks again Cristin!
There were 7 of us at the house, and it accommodated us nicely. We spent delightful evenings on the lanai and got really good photos of Diamond Head and the city of Honolulu.We also had some really pretty birds visit us that we had not seen before. Cristin is a great hostess. She totally respected our privacy, but was always willing to share helpful tips with us when we asked, such as where do we get good pizza, grocery store location, etc.. We enjoyed all the fun things we did in Hawaii, but I think the most memorable would be the Luau at Paradise Cove, and the dinner cruise on the Star of Honolulu. This home really contributed to our wonderful Hawaiian vacation. I would recommend it to everyone, except it might be difficult for those with disabilities due to the stairs. A big Mahalo to Cristin for allowing us to share her home for a wonderful week in the paradise of Hawaii. Aloha!!!
4 of us stayed at Cristin's place for a week in April. It was perfect. Our girls are in their early 20s and so all the space of a 3BR house was appreciated. With terrific weather, we spent all available time at the house on the lanai. We could not tire of the views of Honolulu from this elevated house.
Having a hire car, there was easy access to get into Waikiki and Honolulu as well as access to the motorway for travel elsewhere around the island. Local amenities of supermarket and numerous restaurants were within a 5 minute drive.
Cristin was a great host. While they live downstairs, she makes sure that all is OK but wasn't intrusive into our activities. I also enjoyed the morning walk further up the hill in this neighbourhood.

Cristin is the best host, she is friendly, helpful and responded quickly to my emails and phone calls. We were a family of 6 adults and stayed for 7 nights. Cristin is living downstairs. The rental is on the upper floor with privacy. The convenience that Cristin’s home has, is endless, it is equipped with everything that you would have in your own home, except the groceries to prepare your meals. We cooked, baked, bbq and do our laundry just like we were at home. The house is clean and spacious. The beds are comfortable. There are lots of closet spaces and drawers to put your belongings. We enjoyed looking at the most amazing fireworks I have ever seen from the gorgeous lanai. During our stay we enjoyed going to Waikiki beach, Waikiki shopping area, Diamond Head, Manoa Fall etc. The house is located close toTimes, Safeway, Foodland, Walmart grocery stores. There are many restaurants close by including Leonard’s bakery, the best Portuguese-style donuts called Malasadas in Hawaii. The house would accommodate 8 people comfortably with the comfortable couch in the living room. I would definitely recommend Cristin’s home to stay.
We had 2 families, a total of 7 of us adults coming from 5 locations. We spent 5 nights at this rental and it was a great way to reconnect with the family and sit back and relax. Like all the other reviews it is a FANTASTIC home. Gorgeous views. The house has everything you could possibly need. We even found a deck of cards and played gin rummy. Some of us were brave and took the long walk up the hill to get our morning exercise - the reward was the great views. My nephew enjoyed sleeping on the deck. We could see the fireworks on Friday night coming from Waikiki. And even saw a few shooting stars at night. Home is located in Kaimuki, lots of great places to eat. Close to everything. A perfect place for a big family or 2 families or 3 couples to have a pleasant vacation. YES, I would come back and stay here.
This place was amazing, the view was just like a postcard......picture perfect. There wasn't one thing that was not welcoming when we walked into the house, which was very clean, including fresh flowers in the bathroom and dining room. The convience to everything was perfect. Having our morning coffee and watching sunsets from the lanai was awesome. The Weber gas grill was great to have a BBQ on the lanai as well. The nightly tropical breeze made it excellent for sleeping. There were ample towels-beach and bath, bedding, dishes, cookware, all amenities of home including the washer and dryer. We had rented a car, but there was a bus stop right across the street from the house. Thank you Kennedys for providing such a beautiful spot for our first trip to Hawaii, I would/will highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit Oahu.
