Perfect for us

May 8, 2016

This section of a lovely new triplex was perfect for three of us, visiting Oahu with snorkeling at Hanauma Bay as our primary goal. The beautifully outfitted home is a mere 10 minute drive from our daily snorkeling destination. The home is beautifully furnished, the beds are comfortable, the owners are warm and welcoming. We enjoyed meeting folks renting the other sections of this home as we loved the patio spaces in the morning over coffee and evening over a glass of wine. There is excellent access to both Honolulu and Kailua from this location so sight seeing was easy from here.

Highly recommended
Dwain I. said...

This is an excellent place to stay: clean, modern, convenient, quiet, great view of the ocean.

Immaculate property
Christine J. said...

The space exceeded our expectations. The furnishings were comfortably modern, designed with much detail and without cutting corners. The place was so clean and well maintained that it seemed like we were the first to occupy.

Awesome outdoor spaces for entertaining, complete with privacy and views. Liane and Dana are a dynamite couple and a real pleasure getting to know. I would highly recommend this space and hope to occupy it again at some point myself.

Warm aloha as you enter...well designed, comfortable, clean, bright and lovely hosts.

My family and I recently spent our Christmas holiday at this lovely home in Hawaii Kai. The pictures are nice but does not show all the wonderful details of this unit, not only in the physical design but in amenities. With 3 adults and 2 teenagers, we did not feel cramped at all - the actual unit feels a bit larger than what you see in the picture due to high ceilings.

The house is on top of a hill, Liane and Dana are wonderful and gracious hosts; they have done an amazing job with the design and the renovation of the this home. They actually spent time thinking about what would make things comfortable for renters?such little details as?plenty of nice hangers that are not miss match from some basement outlet stores; well stocked kitchen with items you need instead of having all the old items the owners don?t want in their main house that they put in their rental homes; nice beach items (each unit has their own individual well organized items); clean bbq w/ all the necessary equipment (by the way- individual bbq area and not shared) you need; nice beach and home towels, the list goes on and on. We were also given a very practical welcome gift upon our arrival - lovely touch.

We had a wonderful dinner party with families from other parts of the Island (total of 11), the outside bench comfortably sat all of us and it was very memorable evening.

If you want to experience a great rental home, this is the place!

We're telling all our friends

Yen said...

We absolutely loved it, and highly recommend for any group of 4 or more. The home was so clean and all the kitchen cookware was brand new. We're telling all our friends, and will book the same rental the next time we return to Hawaii! Thank you!!! XoXo from The Seto's -California.

My family and I were so happy here, and didn't want to live.

Naomi said...

This places was absolutely incredible! It was clean, quite, and in a nice neighborhood. It was away from all the loud Waikiki hustle and bustle, but close enough to get to. The beaches and stores ( Costco, Safeway, restaurants, etc.) are easily accessible. The house was nicely set up. We had some friends over and utilized the outdoor BBQ area. The BBQ area was fantastic because, it had a nice large table, grill, a sink, and plenty of counter space. The inside of the house was warm and inviting. The bedrooms had really comfortable beds, with plenty of closet space. As for the kitchen, well, it had everything a kitchen would need, but food to fill it. Also, the house had plenty of beach stuff. Toward the end of our stay Liane and Dana were on the property, so we met them- they were so sweet and welcoming, and wanted to make sure that we had everything we needed. Liane and Dana definitely went above and beyond. Prior to us using the BBQ area we told them that we wanted to use it. Once we woke up, we saw Dana outside cleaning the BBQ area because, he knew that we were having guests. Also, before our arrival they sent me a message with a list of suggested spots to go to. As soon as we walked in a welcome package was awaiting us; there was coffee in that welcome package, which we were thrilled about since we hadn't gone to the market yet. I couldn't have been more thrilled about this place. My family and I were so happy here, and didn't want to live. I would highly recommend staying here!

We loved everything about this rental!

Alicia said...

We loved everything about this rental! It was the perfect size for my family of 4 and my parents. Liane knew we were traveling with our 1 year old and they had the crib and high chair set up without us even asking. It was clean, modern, and had everything you could think of including: well stocked amounts of toiletries, kitchen necessities (bbq utensils, rice cooker, wine glasses, platters, coffee maker, etc.) washer/dryer, laundry baskets, supplies for outdoor activities like cooler, ice packs, snorkel gear, life vests for kids, umbrella, chairs, toys - EVERYTHING! It was well organized, which I loved because you didn't have to go around looking for things. Even the light switches are labeled! I liked how the different areas (bedrooms and living room/kitchen) had its own ac units so you could adjust the temp in each space. The rental has very high ceilings, which made the space feel even roomier. It's a nice quiet neighborhood with beautiful views. I wish we had a chance to utilize the bbq areas. Upon our arrival we were greeted with gifts of chocolates, coffee, and a handy beach blanket! Liane was very approachable and responded to texts promptly. We had no problems with check-in. We've been telling all our friends and family about this rental! When we return to Oahu we would definitely return to Hawai'i Kai! Thanks for your hospitality, Liane and Dane!

Look no further!

Kari said...

Liane and Dana were so wonderful. Our family had such a great trip and the unit was so beautiful and clean. They provide you with absolutely anything you could possibly need. We asked if they could set a crib up after we saw that another guest was able to. When we walked into the second bedroom they had a beautiful and very sturdy crib set up with a nice pile of extra blankets and sheets. If you are looking for a quiet, clean, and spacious place to stay then look no further!

Very organized and clean.

Julie said...

Liane sent an email to explain all the check in procedures, etc. whenever I called she was available for questions. She pretty much had every base covered and was super friendly. The neighborhood was very nice,quiet, and beautiful. The house was just like the pictures AND was decked out with everything we needed! Boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach towels,umbrella's, fold up beach blankets, beach chairs, you name it. It was very organized and clean. I would stay there again. Thanks Liane!

The property is beautiful and maintained impeccably. Everything you need or want has been carefully thought out by the owner. Parking is ample. Made our family vacation even more pleasant.

Beautifully decorated and perfectly appointed!
Ajay L. said...

First, my compliments to Liane and Dana. He built the place and she made it an amazing spot to call home temporarily. The decor is beautiful and they have thought of everything you'd need on a Hawaiian holiday. With kids. Need boogie boards and beach chairs/umbrella? It's waiting for you! A cooler with those frozen ice blocks to keep it cool? Check! A fully appointed kitchen (down to foil for tenting your steaks that you grilled on the really nice grill)? Check! The linens are nice. The towels are fresh. They even had a fresh supply of shampoo/conditioner/body wash in each shower. And laundry detergent was even provided in the laundry area. The community is quiet and perfectly away from traffic but close enough to civilization to run to town for take out. Costco is nearby, as are a number of other basic shopping spots. Now, to get to the other parts...the things I think made this rental above and beyond other vacation rentals. The view was lovely. The decor was inspired. I loved the polished concrete floors and the lovely linen couch in the living area as well as the script printed chairs. The decorative details were elegant. The pillows (which I learned Liane herself sewed!) on each bed were the perfect size and all were lovely colors/patterns that added a freshness to the space. The modern feel of the space was warmed up with reclaimed wood/industrial elements. As hosts, Liane and Dana were unobtrusive yet really eager to help and lovely people. They explained everything we needed to know about the unit as well as where to eat (we love to find the best spots wherever we go) and what beaches to visit. My 5 year old was really sad to leave. My 7 year old asked if we could stay longer. Both girls happy in the same house???? That doesn't happen very often!

Beautiful Home!
Janice O. said...

Everything was provided in this amazing home. All you need to pack are your clothes.. Very very clean and beautifully decorated. Owners were exceptionally in tune to our needs. They brought over 4 umbrellas when it rained one morning and when we requested bed rails for our grandson, those were promptly provided as well. Grocery stores , Costco, and small restaurants were close by. It was perfect for our family of 5 and would definitely recommend this home !

What a wonderful place to stay. Everything was perfect. The owners are lovely people and we felt very looked after. Attention to detail was second to none with delightful little presents upon our arrival. Thank you so much for making our stay in Oahu so very nice.

Right when you walk in you feel so comfortable, everything is impeccably clean! Let me just get started with the view, when you enter the living room/ kitchen you right away see an amazing view, the green mountains so close by and beautiful trees and right next is the gorgeous ocean, it's breathtaking. The neighborhood is calm and quite. The condo is very spacious and the beds!!! They are like sleeping on clouds you won't wanna get up! They literally have everything you need ,if you wanna go to the beach no worries they got beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment, towels and if you have kids they'll have a blast! Everything is close by like the beaches, stores, restaurants so that's another great thing. Everything was just perfect, we highly recommend staying here! Its great for any occasion

We were stunned upon arrival at how clean and updated the condo was. The layout was perfect and very comfortable. Everyday, we couldn't believe how lucky we got with selecting this location. We highly recommend this space and working with these owners. They went above and beyond.

Absolutely Amazing!
gail h. said...

My husband, three girls (ages 25, 21, and 12), and I stayed in this lovely home after returning from a 7-day intra-island cruise. The location was perfect for us. There's beautiful beaches and scenery within minutes. The home is nestled in a lovely tranquil community, but just minutes from amazing views, shopping and tons of fun things to do. It was also so nice to come home each night to a relaxing evening of take-out and a movie (or an epesode of Hawaii 5-0). I say home, because that's exactly what it feels like, without any of the work. The amazing owners left nothing out. The home is loaded with anything we needed, from beach chairs, towels, picnic supplies, and even a beach umbrella to snorkel gear and boogie boards. The beds and sheets are extremely comfortable and it's so quiet at night. There was more than enough space for each of us to have some privacy, if needed (which having 3 girls, is always needed). I have to mention though, that I think one of the things that made our entire experience so nice were the owners, Liane and Dana. They were so helpful from the day I reserved to even today. They even helped us to plan our trip and excursions. I have already recommended this home to friends and will continue to do so whenever the time arises. I highly recommend this lovely home. I promise, you can't go wrong.

This is the ONLY place to stay on Oahu! LIKE NEW and luxurious!!
Monica G. said...

Having lived on Oahu when I was a kid, and not returning for over 47 years, I expected massive changes to the island. Quite a change. But just across Diamond Head, above the breathtaking Hanauma Bay Park and nearby Botanical Gardens lies a respite from the tourists/traffic. Although only 3 miles from major shopping, dining options and attractions galore, this spacious scenic home is so welcoming in every way. It's location is ideal no matter where you want to go. As the other reviews mentioned, it feels like you are the first people to stay in a brand new home. It is so clean and meticulously maintained. With very large rooms, high ceilings, extremely comfortable and finely appointed without being stuffy, the owners made us feel so welcome and appreciated before we even arrived. These lovely pictures do not do it justice. It is even better...plus the views, the wonderful breezes, the swaying palm trees, the fragrance of flowers...ahhh. We were 2 couples, but the home has more sections for larger groups if needed. Nice of them to provide local restaurant menus, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, even snorkel sets! We loved the grill area, and tiki torches. We felt so pampered. Wonderful ambiance inside and out! This place is PERFECT!

I recently stayed here with a few people for a work/vacation getaway. We have nothing but extremely positive things to say about the house as well as the owners. They were very accommodating and made us feel at home. They have everything you need, including gear for the beach and kitchen necessities. I will absolutely stay here again when we return to the island.

A Gem in Hawaii Kai!!!
We just returned from a 10 day stay at this wonderful property in Hawaii Kai. If you rent a car and want to explore the island this is the perfect home base. We have been to Oahu many times over the past few years and this unit is by far the nicest home away from home that we have experienced. Everything is brand new! Two BBQ's, gas tiki torches, private parking, free wifi and phone and a safe yard for small children. The home in nestled in a gorgeous, quiet neighbourhood at the top of the valley surrounded by green hills and Hawaiian breezes. I honestly did not hear the neighbours once, only the sweet sound of birds in the morning. The unit is exactly as shown in the photos and very well appointed with all you could need to cook and enjoy your stay. My family loved all of the beach items (boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear and umbrella) which we used every day. The owners are two of the most lovely and hospitable people who came to meet us in person and were available to answer all of our questions. The beds are very comfortable; the sheets and towels (including beach towels) were fresh and of very high quality. No detail is spared in the unit with a TV in each room, air conditioning, picnic cooler, washer and dryer and full size kitchen. The location is perfect to explore the best parts of the island; Makapuu Lighthouse, Koko Crater, Kailua Beach, Lanikai, Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach. A quick drive will take you to Waikiki Beach if you wish, but you will find everything you need within minutes of the home; Hawaii Kai is a friendly spot with ample shopping and entertainment. Watch the sunrise from Sandy Beach just down the hill or just lounge on the private patio back at the unit. It is the perfect spot to return to after a hard day at the beach! thank you Liane and Dana for a great home to call our own during our visit. We are already talking about our trip next year. Mahalo.

Rachel K. said...

We had an absolutely fantastic time at this rental. It had everything and more. The owners are meticulous in their preparation for your arrival and have worked very hard to create a very comfortable and inviting space. Our family of 6 was completely content here and the location was perfect for us as its nestled near some great beaches and within driving distance of a Costco which is a plus when feeding a family of 6. I highly recommend this rental and will definitely be staying again!!!
