Property Details

Updated: Sep 22, 2014
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

I wanted to thank you for making our family vacation an unbelievable family memory. Being with my children and my grandchildren in paradise was made perfect by your hospitality and your beautiful home.



Your home accommodated all nine of us very comfortably. Your pool was absolutely fantastic for the whole family to swim and relax before and after our busy days at the beach.



The location of your home was perfect. We were able to access the beautiful beaches, go to wonderful restaurants, and shop. Everything was so convenient which made our stay all the more relaxing and enjoyable.



We look forward to our next stay in Hawaii at you home.



Thank you so much,





Becky

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

  • 4 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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..

Just like my home in Hawaii Kai

  • 5 of 5
I spent seven days at this home with my family and friends. All of us Max 11 people.
The owners are wonderful hosts and kind, friendly, helpful.
I wish you the very best and thank you so much for a wonderful stay at House.
It is conveniently located off the main highway, only 15 minutes into downtown Honolulu, about 25 minutes from the airport and great dining are just minutes away. Some even in walking distance! The location was close to excellent swimming, boogey boarding and snorkeling.
The property really made our stay the best vacation of our lives.
We spent hours relaxing
We had everything we needed and the owner are so welcoming and kind. Also, we found our stay an excellent value compared to other vacation rentals.
The home is beautifully decorated and well stocked with necessities with all conveniences, clean and very comfortable.
The pool is wonderful for the children. We also had beach chairs, cooler boxes and boogie boards available to bring to the beach with us.
Highly recommend! We would definitely return here and recommend it to anyone who prefers to be out of the city but with easy access.

Great place for a group!

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 8 that stayed at this venue for a week in March. Our main purpose for visiting Hawaii at this time was to watch Women's softball at U of H. We were also interested in golf and eating and just getting together. This house was just perfect: eight of us fit in with plenty of room and privacy. U of H campus and a very nice golf course were just a short drive away. Lots of shopping nearby made it easy to get what we needed -- and then some. The pool was warm and inviting and refreshing. Facilities were great and when we had a problem with the giant TV in the living room, Melanie was right there to take care of it. The area was quiet and pleasant and the ocean was less than 5 minutes walk away. We could not have found a better place for our group.
