Beautiful home, great stay

Sonya was a great host and my friends and I had a great experience staying in her home. The home is beautiful and perfect for a large group looking for a place to stay close to the beach.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house was just as advertised and more. It worked very well for our whole family(6 adults and 6 children under 13) and the kids loved the pool We made sure we set a limit of 8:30 am to 8:30 pm in respect for the neighbors and this worked well. The house was in an excellent location for getting to all the attractions we were looking at on Oahu,

Spacious house with a good location

  • 4 of 5

August 13 -20, seven of our family members spent a wonderful time in the house 。 The pool is clean and nice, the water temperature is great. The house air conditioning is good. You have everything you need in the kitchen for cooking. You get a very spacious kitchen to sit around and chatting for at least 10 people . It's walking distance to the ocean for a swim but you have to drive several minutes to a nice beach. The hous is located a beautiful neighborhood, clean nice and quiet . House provides enough towels for 12 people, you can do laundry by yourself there. However, make sure you have to prepare your own shampoo for shower. Only negative thing is that bads are not the best. They are way too soft for me and my husband.

As long as you have a rental car, it's a easy to anywhere you want to go! We all had good time there.

Best Vacation Rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to Honolulu with some close friends and family for special occasion. We were lucky that the house was available to us. As soon as we walked in the house, we were very surprised that the house was a lot bigger than we saw in the pictures. We enjoyed everything in the house and the location was so convenient! It was very close to Costco and less than 10 minutes drive to Hanauma bay for snorkeling. Sonya and Teri were both really nice and the house was just beautiful. We had some great time for our stay.

The house is palatial and roomy, probably 4,000 sq ft plus. You don't need to go out to exercise, just walk from one end of the house to the other haha. Lots of appliances, including a mixer that can be used for smoothies. 2 large fridges including 2 large freezers. Goto Costco for bulk stuff, and then to Safeway for the smaller items as soon as you get there.

The house was perfect, with the exception of the outside BBQ being hard to start. Sonya took care of it immediately, and also responded immediately when we had any questions.

20 minutes from Honolulu. Close to the water in a very quiet and upscale neighborhood, and yet only 5 minutes to all sorts of shops and restaurants, including Safeway and Costco. Be sure to go to Koa Pancake house (5 min), The Shack (5 min) and Uncle Bo's in Honolulu (20 min). The Tiki Room in the Ala Moana Shopping center is a nice local place for drinks. Don't go to Sandy's beach, which is 15 minutes south, the water is too cold, the waves break too close to shore, and there's a strong undertow. Drive another 20 minutes, and go to Lani Kai beach. Perfect tropical beach.

You can rent a moped or two downtown for about $150 a week, so, if you rent one car, you still have some options.

China Walls is 5 minutes away. It's a 20-30' high cliff (depending on the tide) that you can jump into from into the ocean. We posted a video from our visit- vimeo #163445850

Hawaii is different. No one wears socks. Don't bring any, you'll feel weird. And flip-flops are worn pretty much everywhere, so be sure to buy some where you live, so you don't spend any time shopping for them while you're in Hawaii.

Would we stay in this house again? YES!

This location and home is as advertised! Perfect place for our group of 7 friends , each of us had our own bed to sleep in!

House furnishings is super clean and luxurious. having three bathrooms and showers made getting ready for the day super easy. The grill, outdoor cabana, and pool was a huge bonus...we cooked every morning and loved it.

Located in Hawaii Kai, the neighborhood is quite and cozy, great for those wanting a relaxing vacation home on the island yet only 15-20 min from all the action.

Last but definitely not least, our host, Sonya was super pleasant and awesome to work with, we highly recommend staying here, we surely will again!

Situated in one of the most scenic neighborhoods in Honolulu Hawaii Kai is known for peace and quiet. But it is also close to Koko Marina where all the water sports equipment can be rented . Close to Hanuama Bay , the snorkeling heaven.
