We are a small family of three, We have called Hawai'i home for past decade. We are avid hikers, and we love the beach - many of the photos you see we took on one of our family hikes. Our hobby is renovating properties with beautiful finishings and details . This is the 2nd property we purchased and renovated from the ground up.
Jay purchased this apartment in 2010
Once you come and stay you'll understand why we chose this property, the location is convenient and the beauty of the area unparalleled. Come experience old Hawai'i at Hale 'Awapuhi.
Close to the beach, the mountains, hiking, biking and shopping.
We are so glad your unit was available for party of our stay in Oahu. It was perfect in every way.We brought our mountain bikes with us from Canada and rode them every day. On our last day we were able to ride up the road to access the Old Pali Hwy and returned home after visiting the Maunawili Falls via the road in front of the house-amazing!
Your unit was wonderful -well done! It has everything and is very comfortable. I love the way you have decorated it. It is so fresh clean and when the curtains are open the Hawaiian plants are better than pictures.
We stayed here when we moved our daughter to her first year of college at Hawai'i Pacific University. This rental was very close to the HPU Loa campus. We enjoyed looking out upon lush mountains every morning, sometimes covered in fog, sometimes clear. Tropical vegetation and ginger just outside the window are icing on the cake! Local chickens and roosters were chatty in a charming way.
Kawainui Regional Park and Maunawili Falls Trail are very close by. In general, it is easiest if you have a car in this neighborhood. Whole Foods and FoodLand were a quick 5 minute drive. Yummy coffee shop just inside FoodLand. We found everything our daughter needed for her dorms at the Target and Walgreens in Kailua. We highly recommend dining at Tokoname Restaurant and Champa Thai. Kalapawai Deli is a fun place for breakfast or lunch. Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach are also nearby. We watched the sun rise at dawn at Kailua Beach and shortly thereafter were pleasantly surprised to find a local youth group practicing Hula right there on the beach. I also indulged in a lomilomi massage at Lomilomi Hana Lima Day Spa. Totally worth it.
Honolulu is a very short 20-min drive from the rental during non-commute hours. We had no problems getting to any place on the island from the property. I bashed my foot on some coral at Waikiki Beach (which, in addition to the painful coral, was way too touristy for us...we definitely preferred the windward side of the island where the rental is located!) and I needed to use Braun Urgent Care in Kailua and they were able to see me quickly.
The rental owners are friendly and welcoming. We'd had some airline delays and had to arrive a day later than expected. We kept in communication with the owners and they were very accommodating. Even though this property is connected to their main house, you really have complete privacy. They had many beach items for us to borrow, including towels, sunscreen, boogie boards and goggles. The kitchen was well-appointed and we were able to make several meals in the rental. Our daughter slept on the pull-out couch until she moved into her dorms and was very comfortable. We felt like we were coming "home" every night when we returned to the rental.
We are definitely looking forward to staying here for our next trip. It's been one of our favorite VRBO rentals to date!
This is a wonderful rental if you like quiet neighborhoods and gracious hosts. I was born and raised in Honolulu and my dad worked at a restaurant in Kailua for many years, so I knew the area where this rental is located. I've been back home so often since moving to California in 1973, and it's always special to find a great place that isn't a cramped hotel room, isn't in Waikiki, and with people that help to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. This is one of those places.
The pictures on VRBO of the rental are accurate to the extent that photos can capture things visually. Location-wise, the unit is close to all metro sites in Honolulu and freeways to Pearl Harbor and Aiea and is just minutes to Kailua town and Kaneohe. It is in a quiet residential area that is tucked away near the slopes of Olomana. Walking around the neighborhood at nights, you can feel the peacefulness that surrounds the area. The owners live in the large portion of the house and are accommodating, friendly, and helpful and generally allow you your privacy unless you need something.
We caught up with old friends and visited with my daughter who's attending UH Manoa while we were here, among other things, but this listing can be a base camp for anyone wanting a taste of Hawaii as residents see it. Rent a car, drive over the Pali, and you're here from the airport in 20 minutes. Roosters crow in the morning and sleepy poi dogs look at you walk by from behind gates and fences. Great place - you won't be disappointed unless you insist on room service, traffic, and all-night bars.
Our hosts provided us with a clean well equipped two room apartment. Everything worked properly and the place was immaculate. Plenty of hot water for the walk in shower and the air conditioners and fans kept the place cool. Everything needed for a day at the beach was on hand and our hosts, though new parents, were knowledgeable and helpful. Kailua is full of great restaurants and easy shopping with accessibility to the rest of the island. Nothing is really that far away. Highly recommend a visit. The hiking trails were fabulous with great views around many of the corners
Great rental.Excellent location and easy access to main highways. Depending on traffic, most attractions and beaches including Lanikai and Waimanalo Beach,Waikiki,Pearl Harbor,Diamond Head,Pali Lookout,Byodo-In Temple,Hanauma Bay,etc are within 10-30 minute drive. This unit is conveniently located to grocery stores,restaurants, and a Target. Cozy and clean rental...had everything my husband and I and 4 yr old needed.We had an awesome time in Oahu. I would definitely recommend the rental to family and friends. Thanks!
The unit was very nice and practical. It had all the amenities to turn our vacation into a home. Would go back there any time. I recommend it to everyone.
This apartment is like a home away from home. Everything you could want from a vacation rental is there. The first thing you notice when walking in is the bright, fresh-scented open living space. The roomy bathroom is a luxury, with clean, thick Hotel Collection towels, lots of lavendar Whole Foods shower products, and a giant walk-in shower. The bed is divine, and the bedroom has a separate air conditioner, a large closet with plenty of hangers, and ample dresser drawers. There are ceiling fans in both the bedroom and living room, providing nice air flow. The kitchen is really well supplied, with a coffee maker, electric hot plate, good knives, a spacious sink, and full fridge and freezer. Beach towels and chairs, boogie boards, and coolers are all available for any outings you may have planned. So let's get real, because if you're in Hawaii, it's all about the outings. This place is a 10; location, location, location! You are within 10 driving minutes of a handful of gorgeous beaches, shopping, hiking, and sightseeing. Kailua town is 5 minutes away, where you can shop for supplies at Whole Foods or Safeway, Long's pharmacy, and hundreds of other shops and supply stores. 15 - 20 minutes gets you to Waikiki, Diamond Head, and downtown Honolulu. You're just down the road from the entry to a breathtaking 45 minute drive to the North Shore. There are so many unbelievable restaurants close by; you will want for nothing in this Kailua paradise!
