Hale Aukai

  • 5 of 5
Staying 4 weeks at this house was not enough! We all hated to leave. Everything was perfect. The floor plan works for small and larger groups. It is beautifully appointed with everything you need and everything that pleases your eyes. It has been completely modernized without losing the charm of the "cottage". Not only is it beautiful and comfortable on the inside, it is equally so outside. The outdoor terrace with the wonderful salt water pool is perfectly landscaped for privacy and you feel as though you are in a quiet oasis while still being close to the action of Waikiki. Plus, the beach is only steps away and it is convenient access for driving anywhere on Oahu. My family and I cannot wait to return! I highly recommend this lovely, lovely house!

Beautiful Home in a GREAT Location

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Hale Aukai was beyond exceptional! We had a great 6 days in the house and enjoyed every aspect. The house was well laid out such that there was more than enough room for everyone in our group to have their own private space but nobody felt too far away. The owners thought of everything and provided all cookware, beach gear, and even board games and books to stay entertained. The house felt so private and secluded yet was only 5 minutes from the freeway. I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful home, and the owners were a joy to work with. My deposit was refunded promptly after their property manager inspected the facility. I had no issues with them and would gladly stay again if given the opportunity. Thanks again John, for allowing us to stay in your home.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5
We found the house and location ideal for the use for our family ranging in age from 80 to 3. The location is easily accessible to all attractions in and around Honolulu, as well as to markets and shopping. The beautiful beaches on the east shore of Oahu are also within easy driving distance. But it is the house itself that made our visit memorable. It is beautifully appointed and lacks for nothing in the way of conveniences, including a delightful and much-used patio and salt water pool. All in all, perfect for a family vacation.

Just Close Enough to the Action!

  • 5 of 5
The house has a great location with easy access to Interstate H1, Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. It is clean with a well-equipped kitchen, plenty of towels & linens, and a beautiful pool area. We especially liked the ice maker in the kitchen and it came in handy for happy hour! If you are looking to be close to the action, but in a safe neighborhood with some privacy, then this is the place for you.

A perfect place and all that is promised. I have two sons in Honolulu and my daughter and another son joined us this week. The children were in and out of the pool, then on to the beach! Just wish we could have stayed longer.
