Awesome place, awesome hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a 10-day stay at Francis and Saori's place. I have to say, Hawaii is easy to love, but our accommodations definitely added to our wonderful experience. Right off the bat, upon entrance, it is obvious that they have gone to lengths to make the place look welcoming and like your home away from home. There is nothing impersonal about their place. Then, as you get settled, you will notice that the kitchen is fully equipped - and I mean fully. There is nothing that will leave you wanting. 12-cup coffee maker, toaster, full-size fridge, microwave, gas stove top, blender, cheese graters, pots, pans, mixing bowls, I could go on, and on. The only thing that is missing from this otherwise full kitchen is an oven but you won't even miss it or notice. We were two families, each traveling with a 19- and 22-month old and didn't get into our rental until 1AM (which felt like 3AM our time) - the dads were so incredibly happy and gracious to see some nice, cold beers waiting for them as they unloaded our rental van late into the night.

Moving on to the bathroom (and I wouldn't normally review a bathroom, but it is worth mentioning), you'll find two hairdryers, tons of towels, hand towels, and face cloths, and an abundance of miscellaneous bath and body products. My guess is that many bottles have been left by previous guests, but if you forgot any shampoo, conditioner, body wash, or even contact lens solution, toddler training diapers, even WD40, they're all there. Be sure to read the instruction for operating the shower head on the fridge note, too - in short, the trick is to reach under the faucet and pull down. :) Good pressure, nice rain shower.

The master bedroom is a beautiful room with lovely furniture and TONS of closet and dresser drawer space. The 2nd bedroom is significantly smaller but cozy and with a good-sized closet and dresser with more than enough room to fit everything. There is a queen in the master and a double in the 2nd.

Because we were traveling with two toddlers, we needed to use the washer and dryer in their garage several times. This was a lifesaver for us that we were grateful to have access to.

During our stay, we interacted mostly with Francis who is very friendly, helpful, accommodating, and quick to respond to texts for any questions.

There is really is nothing bad to say about our experience. Both families have expressed the same sentiment now that we're home. We definitely recommend this stay.

Beautiful Hawaiian home mins from beach and shopping

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time and enjoyed our stay. The home is in a quiet residential neighbourhood but close to many shopping amenities (Safeway, Costco, theatre, etc) & is situated close to Hanauma Bay and other attractions like Sea Life Park. You’d definitely need to rent a car to stay here if you want to check out the major attractions. Thank you Saori and Francis!

Great experience

  • 4 of 5


Recently stayed at this property . Had a great overall experience. House was clean and spacious with all essential items . House is located in a safe neighborhood with view of the mountain from the windows. Francis and Saori were great hosts and let us use the snorkel and boogie boards . House is close to safeway, costco , Hanuma bay, seal life park . House was on first floor and that was bit of a problem for my father who is 79 . Also I wish someone could come to clean the house every 3rd day or so especially the bathroom. But overall great experience.

Ohana on Oahu

  • 5 of 5

Aloha! Hawaii Kai is an excellent island-style, comfortable, clean, family-ready rental. I have traveled many times to Oahu back when I was in the Navy, and I would have preferred this Koko Head location to Hilton Hawaiian Village or anywhere else in Waikiki. Still convenient to shopping and sight-seeing, and definitely way more quiet when you're headed for bed. No hassle parking. Saori and Francis (Frank?) were excellent hosts. He gave us suggestions for excellent local food, and we could comfortably and safely walk there too. Head to Moena Cafe instead of Starbucks for your morning coffee and homemade pastries and scones. Pa' aina Cafe makes ono (the best) poke bowls (and smoothies and sandwiches) to go, when you're headed up the coast to Koko Head, the Botanical Garden and Honomauna (spelling?) Bay, Kaneohe, etc. They have plenty of beach gear and towels ready for your use. Adults will need to try on snorkel gear first - my husband and I both have big feet and rented snorkel gear from Snorkel Bob ( we did an inter-island rental as we were also headed to Kauai and da Big Island.) Mahalo nui loa Saori and Francis for a great start to our winter holiday !
