Great place for a large extended family

  • 4 of 5

Place was very clean, was great that we could have the kids upstairs & adults downstairs. Being able to have all 11 of us under one roof, certainly helped, & place was set up with boogie boards, fins etc, so kids in 7th heaven. Safeway close, & 30 minutes into Waikiki. Best snorkeling bay 5 mins away, so as long as you have a car, you are sorted.

We had an issue with the power for the outside part of the house, but looked after quickly. Everyone we dealt with were amazing, right from the start. Had a great holiday, would be back.

Family Vacation at Nani Wai

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. It was large enough for the 11 of us to sit at meals together and had lots of room for lounging. The house was clean well stocked for our needs. Even beach towels were included. The kids loved the pool and hot tub, and enjoyed paddle boarding. We were within an easy drive to the beaches, hiking, food shopping, and tourist attractions. Our contact person was wonderful and responded quickly whenever we had questions or concerns. We would recommend this property.

Comfortable and good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 12 days at this Hawaii Kai location. In the past we usually rent in Kailua and Lanikai area. The location was far more convenient to get to Honolulu and other areas of the Southern part of the island. It was also a fairly quick drive to the beaches of Waimanalo, Kailua and Lanikai. Sandy Beach and other beaches (including Hanauma Bay) are also close by. It was a very convenient location to get to services (Costco, Safeway, Longs and many restaurants and services are very close). The pool and hot tub were great and looking out over the water was pleasant. A few boats and kayakers would go buy from time to time - but overall not a very busy waterway - which was great for taking the kayak out ourselves. The house is roomy, comfortable and clean and kept in good shape. Good for a large group of people. The property managers were professional and easy to work with in setting up the reservation and meeting us at the house. We had a small problem and a few questions about the house which was quickly and pleasantly addressed by the management team. The property offers a great deal of privacy and is very peaceful. Our family of four had a great vacation in this home. I would recommend it.
