Property Details

Updated: Jan 24, 2015
House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 12 Sleeps

We are in Hawaii Kai just minutes from Koko Marina and Hanauma Bay.

We are about 20 to 25 minutes from Waikiki and about 30 minutes from

the airport. The Koko Marina is about a block and ½ away and has a Starbucks, Subway, 24 Hour Fitness and a

number of other restaurants and shops. Costco, Safeway, Longs and

Ross are about a mile down the road but still very close.

We are across the street from the ocean. You can walk down the

access paths between the houses to the water. It is shallow and

warm water with a great surfing spot about 300 yards just beyond the

reef. We have beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers to

help make the perfect day at the beach or park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Melanie:

We had such a great time in Hawaii and thoroughly appreciated staying at your home, especially with all of the kind, friendly, generous, warm interactions with you and Mike. The welcome visit was really awesome (yes, even seniors use that term) and the daily interactions with you made us feel like ohana. You gave us privacy, helped when we needed it and were good neighbors. Your rental home was superbly furnished. I was thrilled to find a rolling pin so I could make my pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving dinner.

We did not leave anything in the clothes dryer and it was so kind of you to offer to return anything we left behind.

Aloha to you two,

Betty (back in cold Seattle)

Very Happy w/Our Choice

  • 5 of 5
We had three families stay at this house in Spring 2008, incl. six children ages 5 and under and one person in a wheelchair. We all had a great time! The house is very comfortable and convenient with plenty of space both inside and outside, and very close to shopping and restaurants. The owners are very hospitable and provided special items such as a booster chair and a shower chair, as well as fresh mangoes from their tree. The only down side was that the interior doors are rather narrow, so the guest in the wheelchair could only get to the main downstairs bathroom, bedroom and living room by going outside to the pool deck. Nonetheless, a very nice vacation, and we would recommend renting this house!

Wonderful get away

To Melanie and Mike,
You were perfect hosts to our family during our stay in your beautiful home. It was an unforgotten time to be there when two hurricanes, namely Iselle and Julio, hit the Big Island, but luckily we were spared. The grandkids enjoyed the pool every day and especially after some full days at the beach. You made the 11 of us feel so at home. Everything was very close to the house -- the beaches, shops and restaurants which made our stay more enjoyable. Thank you for your suggestion where we had a wonderful brunch that one morning. We look forward to another great stay at your home in beautiful Hawaii Kai. We talked to friends and they were very interested. Many many thanks.
Michi and June K. and our children and grandkids

Tremendously enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect place for our once a year family getaway. The kids enjoyed the pool and all the other little things that Melanie and Mike provided. They both did so much to make sure we had a good time. From the get go, they welcomed us. We arrived a little early, but they were kind enough to let us leave our stuff and hang out the pool while the cleaning crew made there finishing touches. Mike provided us with fresh pineapple and mangoes straight from the tree. When they found out that we liked to fish, they went and procured some fishing equipment for the kids. They also were great about providing recommendations on where to go. They were more than rental property owners, they were true hosts.

Not sure when we'll come back, but we would definitely stay here again!

Happy Home

Hi Melanie,

So missed saying good bye to you, we had such a wonderful time, the kids so enjoyed themselves. The house felt so like home and so comfortable, it had everything we could have imagined, working in the kitchen was heaven, if we needed it you had it. Thank you. We so appreciated the pineapple delivered by Mike to us, so refreshing. I am not sure how soon, but I am certain we will be back.

Thank you again Mel, you made our vacation as a whole family easy..
