Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Hawaii Kai, Oahu, Hawaii
Classy and tasteful!
Missy H. said...
We really enjoyed our stay! My husband and I were very comfortable and felt right at home as did our 1.5 year old.
Attention to detail was paid throughout the property and with the stay arrangements. The home is clean, quiet, cool, and beautifully equipped with everything you could ever need including a crib and high chair. The drive to the nearby community was scenic and enjoyable.
The owners went the extra mile to provide us with treats, a list of activities, beaches, and places to eat nearby. They were so delightful and generous, and genuinely care about the quality of your experience while in their home!
Thank you a million times over Liane and Dana! We hope to be back!
Fantastic unit in Hawaii Kai area
My daughter and I were immediately impressed with how clean, spacious, updated, quiet and comfortable the unit was/is. We had the pleasure of staying there for 4 days, and it was always nice to return to this unit after a day of sightseeing as well as getting together with friends of ours who live about a mile away!
It was so wonderfully quiet at night, the beds were comfortable (not that common in most rentals we've stayed at), and Liane and Dana were wonderful, always available and extremely helpful during our stay. We would definitely stay here again and will highly recommend it to our respective friends and family.
Two Thumbs up, WAY UP......
Wonderful Rental Stay
Lauren W. said...
We had an excellent stay. The rental was clean, beautiful and had everything we needed. Upon arrival, there were beautiful leis, Hawaiian coffee and welcoming note from Liane and Dana. They checked in on us and ensured we had a wonderful experience. They even offered a place for us to stay when I incorrectly reserved 1 night short when all rentals were booked.
The rental place is in a great location. We were near all the beaches, restaurants, stores, shops and even a movie theatre.
My daughter who's 6 years old was comfortable and loved the place! We slept well and enjoyed our evening walks around the neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again.
?RENT THIS PLACE! YOU WILL BE VERY PLEASED WITH YOUR DECISION."
In many ways better than a 5 star resort, you will not have a single complaint. This was the first time we flew with our 15-month baby daughter. Initially we were thinking of staying in a hotel on the Waikiki strip. In the past we stayed at the Halekulani, but a room would have been uncomfortable with a baby (bed time, and space, etc) and a suite was at $1.5k+/ night. We looked around, and found a few places with suites at more reasonable costs, but they left a lot to be desired. A friend recommended this site (we haven?t used it in the past). We looked through a bunch of listings when we ran into this one, which clearly showed a beautiful modern home with a lot of great reviews. We contacted the hosts (Liane and Dana) to ask if they had any kid specific amenities (i.e. high chair, crib) and they welcomingly said yes, and they had much more (things you could never hope for in a hotel) such as life vests, beach toys, etc. They were kind enough to stock the Fridge with milk and bananas for our daughter, so that we wouldn?t have to rush to a store on arrival. Liane and Dana sent us detailed instructions how to get there, where to park (right by the door on the property), and their contact information, as well as answered all of our questions in great detail. As a side note, throughout our whole stay Liane and Dana were incredibly responsive, we practically always got answers to questions, and recommendations within a couple of minutes of us sending our inquiry. The suite is completely private, you have your own entrance from the outside, and it is fully self-contained. You get an assigned parking spot right next to the door (on the property), and even a private beautiful backyard area, with ocean view, sink, grill and 4 gas tiki torches. The house is brand new, build and furnished with great taste and great attention to detail. It?s very well stocked, and includes much more than what you could hope to receive in any hotel suite, at any price point. Its worth mentioning that it is spotlessly cleaned, and makes you feel 100% comfortable right away. The location turned out to be better than the wakiki area for us, as with the hosts help we found great food places, and most importantly beaches that were practically private, all within a short distance from the house.
Awesome, Fantastic and Just What We Needed

Where do I begin. I know with Liane and Dana. They are phenomenal and so welcoming.
My wife, daughter, son and myself had a wonderful time during our stay. The property is just beautiful, well-equipped, makes you feel at home. It also has numerous amenities. In addition, the extras (beach equipment) are very useful.
We ate out on the patio after grilling and enjoyed the sunset, which was just relaxing. The location is easy to find and even near the bus line (which I used twice to get to Waikiki. We will definitely be staying again next time we are in Oahu.
Thank you Liane and Dana for the wonderful experience.
The bed was seriously the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on
We loved our stay at this beautiful house in Hawaii Kai. Check in was very easy and the hosts were very accommodating and let us check in early. When we arrived the hosts had left us a welcome letter along with chocolates, coffee, a beach blanket and a beach bag. The house was fully stocked with anything you would need and then some. They had all the pots and pans and utensils we needed to cook with, even spices. The gas grill was hooked up to the city gas, so no worries about having to change out a propane tank. They had snorkeling gear and boogie boards for us to use as well. The house itself was very clean and well thought out. Plenty of space to relax for the four of us that stayed here. Bathrooms we're very clean and they had plenty of towels for us to use. The bed was seriously the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, seriously, I'm not exaggerating. Checkout was extremely easy and we would love to stay here again.
They immediately made us feel welcomed and at home
Liane and Dana were amazing hosts. On our first day, we met them in person and they immediately made us feel welcomed and at home. Their home was extremely clean and spotless which we loved. We also liked the Bali decor! Location was also great, it's close to multiple beaches and perfect distance from the busy downtown. When we return to Oahu we'll definitely stay with Liane and Dana again.
Beautiful interior design
The place is great, it was spacey and clearly thought out. The interior design is just as pretty as the pictures. Beautiful interior design, fully equipped with apple tv, any kitchen utensils and cleaning THINGS you can think of, and easy access plugs that I thought was very mindful of Liane and Dana. Liane and Dana kept in touch through texting to check up on our trip. They were really helpful with recommendations for a place to eat and things to do such as hiking and Luau's. Checking in wasn't a hassle at all, and they welcomed us with Hawaiian chocolate and a beach mat that really appreciated. The neighborhood is secluded from the busy part of Honolulu, but the drive towards the house have a wonderful scenery of the ocean and little beaches that was breathtaking.
Stunning and exceeded our expectations!
I can not even express in enough words how awesome our stay was at Liane and Dana's place. Prior to arrival they reached out with very helpful instructions, such as grocery store location/distance, etc. Then upon arrival we walked in to a gorgeous apartment. You could tell that it was designed by someone who was very meticulous and has taste. The space was extremely functional and the pictures we viewed prior did not do justice. On the dinning table we found a warm welcoming note with some very nice gifts. A very nice touch and added to my wife and I being so happy about our decision to stay at their place for our vacation in HI. The place was very well equipped with state of the art devices ranging from the entertainment center to the dishwasher and AC unit with separate controls in each room. The view was spectacular and the location was nearby local stores, restaurants, beaches, but far enough to make you feel like you were in a private peaceful area. Again, I could spend a week raving of the experience we had here, but I will leave it with it was absolute stunning and exceeded our expectations. In the instructions they initially provided us I had overlooked the check out time, which was totally my fault. On the day of departure my wife and I were out and about and Liane reached out to us as we still had our stuff in the property and the cleaners needed to start. When I told her I overlooked the check out time she was so kind and considerate to us told us to take our time. I still feel bad about that, but her kind and friendly demeanor definitely helped keep what could have been a stressful situation into a relaxing one. We hope to go back with our kids soon and crossing our fingers that their place will be available to rent, as it will be hard for anyone to beat our experience there.
Absolutely surpassed our expectations!
The hosts made sure to be available when we arrived, and continuously checked on us during our stay. The unit was set up with everything we could possibly need... it absolutely surpassed our expectations: a wonderful place close to the ocean, comfort, tranquility, parking, etc.. The decor and cleanliness made us feel that we were in good hands. The king size bed was particularly good for me as I needed to catch up on my sleep. We enjoyed the inside as much as the outside set up with an elevated picnic area, propane grill, and torches. The house is slightly secluded while being close to all the commercial centers. It is also only minutes away from Kailua beach and the famous Hanauma Bay. Everything was working properly.
This was a perfect choice for our family . The location is absolutely wonderful, short driving distance to Sea Life Park and Haunama Bay. A very nice and quiet neighborhood. It was very well decorated and extremely comfortable. The home was well stocked with everything you could, or wouldn't think of; rice cooker, cooler, Apple TV, WiFi, beach stuff, boogie boards, beach towels, snorkeling gear, BBQ, picnic table, lounge chairs, tiki torches, etc... The beds were very comfy and a full size crib was put together for our little one. It was just up the road from a Safeway, CVS and Costco. Dana was great, very quick with all the answers and offering up places to visit to avoid the beaten path. Checked in with us via text to make sure all is well. There is a steep driveway that requires some skill to navigate so don't be afraid. Our kids looked forward to it everyday like it was an amusement ride. :-) We will definitely go back and will recommend them to anyone we know traveling to Oahu. Thanks again....

This vacation home rental was located adjacent to our son's home in Hawaii Kai and was convenient and well maintained. We were pleased to find that it was very well accommodated and spacious. The kitchen and master bedroom were exceptional. Many thanks for an excellent Vacation Rental.

Better than any 5 Star Hotel!
Veronika D. said...
We had just stayed at the Waikiki Hilton for a business trip in March and decided to bring back our teen girls for a family vacation. I knew that it would be costly to stay in Waikiki and we would need at least 2 rooms to be somewhat comfortable. We also wanted our 3 teen girls to experience Hawaii as locals do and not as tourists. That is very difficult to do in Waikiki. This is when we decided to check out vacation rentals and look for a house. We were very impressed with the reviews about this house and the owners. We also loved that it was 2 bedrooms. One of them had 3 comfy beds, which was perfect for our girls! We also liked that it was in Hawaii Kai, which is about 20 minutes from Waikiki and less than an hour away from North Shore. The local beach is also less than a 5 minute car drive and is not packed with people. The price was affordable for our 5 day stay and we knew that we would not be crammed in a small room on our down time. Let me start by telling you, that as soon as we booked it, Liane and Dana's warm welcome started at that moment. Liane responded to all my emails immediately and answered all my questions. This set to rest any insecurities about using online vacation rentals for the first time. When we arrived, the house was snuggled at the top of a neighborhood street, snuggled against a mountain. The house is split in 3 parts but you would never know it because each have their own entryway. The top part covers the whole top floor and has a front entryway. There is a driveway that leads to the back and each bottom home has its own parking space, which made it easy for us to bring all our things in. There are two distinct places for BBQing and all of it is top of the line stuff. The inside is even more amazing! First of all, you get in the door with a code (no key). The bottom spaces are separated by a hall that has one restroom, office and washer and dryer that can be shared. You don't even share a wall with your neighbors. Genius! Everything is top of the line and we lacked nothing. They stocked big beach towels, huge beach bag, shampoo, conditioner, soaps, laundry soap, spices etc... They even welcomed us with a gift on the table. I don't think we will ever stay in a hotel again. We actually want to come back with our family and rent the whole house, which is possible since the hallway connects the house if needed.

Great property. Perfect location!
Yadira R. said...
Great property. Perfect location. Traveled with my fiancé and our two children 15 and 7. No complaints what so ever. Loved how it was furnished and how spacious it was. Ac/wifi/washer and dryer/as well as the comfy beds all made our stay that much more comfortable. Nothing is too far away from this location and there's plenty of stores and restaurants near by without having to go into busy Waikiki. Liane and Dana were great, always so willing to offer advise and suggestions from what to eat & things to do. We decided a few weeks before going to elope while there, and she even went as far as offering me her connecting unit that was not in use at the time as my dressing room which was amazing of her to do. That along with the extra treats and beach gifts they provided for our stay just made our visit there so much more memorable and helped us make or vacation that much better. Thank you for everything again. Would definitely stay again.

Wonderful Property & Excellent Owners!
Wendy A. said...
We rented this unit for a week-long visit with family that live in Hawaii Kai. Everything about our stay was great and Liane & Dana are delightful! They truly take pride in their vacation rentals, which is reflected in the unit itself and their attentive correspondence leading up to our stay. Traveling with a one-year old baby can be challenging and this property was perfect- equipped with a crib and highchair- so we didn't need to worry about any baby gear. The decor and furniture are lovely, and the linens & towels were all clean and brand-new. The kitchen is fully equipped (even down to aluminum foil and ziploc bags!), so we could cook meals easily and were able to host a family bbq in the nice outdoor patio area. With the washer/dryer, dishwasher, a/c, wifi and more, this property truly made our visit relaxing and enjoyable! I only hope that it is available for us to stay when we are back to visit again. Mahalo, Liane & Dana!

Quiet and Perfect Escape from Waikiki
Shannon P. said...
Such a perfect place - clean, well stocked, quiet, with great views. An amazing escape from the hustle of Waikiki. An easy drive to the city and other great hiking and snorkeling spots. Hosts were wonderful - they set the bar for the rest of our Hawaiian vacation and nothing else lived up to it! We would stay here again in a heart beat.
Excellent Property and Excellent Host!
Yogesh B. said...
We lived in the 2 bedroom property for 4 night and had a excellent experience. The property is well located close to Hanauma bay and other attractions. The property itself is very well kept and stocked. We did do our own cooking and didnot find the kitchen lacking in anyway. The hosts are great people. Everything is very well organized. They even provide snorkling gear, beach towels and beach blanket. Wow. I am staying at this place if I go back to Oahu. Thank You Liane and Dana.

5-star vacation home exceeded all our expectations!
The 5 P's from Canada said...
This house is nestled in a quiet area of Hawaii Kai. Upon our arrival we didn't know exactly what to expect. However from the time we entered through the keyless door until it was time to leave, this property exceeded all our expectations. Immaculate, roomy, exquisitely decorated, top of the line EVERYTHING. We are a family of 5 with 3 teenagers and we had plenty of room. This property is well stocked and has everything you need for a great vacation (including boogie boards, snorkel gear, towels, beach chairs, a cooler and even spices!) All you need to buy is food and with Costco and Safeway close by it was easy to pick up what we needed on the way 'home'. The BBQ area is private and the laundry facilities are a huge plus. The kids loved the free wi fi and the DVD player (not to mention the TVs in every room). A large hallway divides the two downstairs units and it is very soundproof - we never saw or heard anyone else. This property has easy access by car to Hunama Bay (10 mins drive) and other great beaches on the east coast. With about a 20 mins drive to Honolulu it also made it easy to get to the local attractions. However the best part of this property is the owners! They make sure you have everything and that your stay is first class. I can't say enough about how amazing this place is and have recommended this property to all my friends. There were no negatives, unless you include the fact that we had to leave! You absolutely can't go wrong.

The place was very clean and organized and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As a matter of fact we were sad to leave and move to a hotel after 7 days. However, we made lodging reservations late in the year and this was the price to pay. After a couple of days staying at a hotel my kids said they missed the house. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Elegant, Beautiful, and All New!
We can't get over how nice this place was! Newly constructed, inside and out. Everything was top-of-the-line from appliances and fixtures in the kitchen to super comfy beds, luxury linens, etc. The owners were really warm and hospitable, happy to help make our stay as pleasant as possible. They had everything we needed and more -- kitchenware, spices, deluxe towels, beach gear, outdoor BBQ, and even tiki torches! We loved the elegant, calm and relaxed design of the space, plus Hi-def TVs in every room and air conditioning. And again, everything was new! The thick walls of the house made it extra quiet inside. The cool-looking floors had little carpet which meant we could see how exceptionally clean the place was from top to bottom. We also loved the exclusive location of the site at the high point of the valley. Beaches, hiking, shopping center (complete with a Costco) were just a quick drive away. Gorgeous view, serene, and very peaceful -- absolutely perfect! It was all we could have wished for to make our holiday special. We will definitely choose this gem again!

I'M STAYING HERE AGAIN!
Beautiful house! Well equipt kitchen. The luxury amenities make you feel at home. Close to Haunama Bay for the best snorkeling. Nice to be close enough to drive to Honolulu but not have to stay in the busy downtown. Easy assess to the ocean and roads to drive around the whole island. My family stayed for almost 3 weeks and had a great time. Looking forward to our next trip!
