About the area

KokoKaiThaiPalace com (Aloha Palace com). First Available Rental is the calendar month of July 2017 as in RIGHT NOW, even just a one week stay is possible, with per night rental rates much lower if you stay longer than the absolute minimum stay of just one week, but everything is possible and do not hesitate to Make an Offer, due to an unexpected last minute cancellation by a high profile celebrity so their loss is your gain, HURRY and SAVE!!! Call Owner Milan and book NOW The AlohaPalace is usually rented out a year or more in advance so be sure to book your rental in the month and year of your choice asap.

Getting around

Transportation: The BUS has a bus stop at the very nearby Koko Marina Shopping Center and another one at the entrance to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. There are also many taxis including the ever more popular UBERS, there are also two bicycles (use at your own risk, after all the owner fixes the brakes on one bike himself without having any pro skills in that regard, so definitely walk do not ride them down the steep driveway and steep cul-de-sac, after that you should be OK.

Getting here

From the HNL airport yousimply drive your rental cars East on H1 and ignore the Waikiki turnoffs because that would double the commute time which is otherwise only about 20 minutes if you avoid the rush-hour, and when the H1 Eastbound almost without any notice becomes the Kalanianaole Highway #72 Eastbound without your having had to get off the freeway or anything, the freeway simply becomes the highway "Island Style", you will just continue to drive on it until you see the new rebranded Chevron Gas Station, now the Techron (Texaco) Gas Station on your left and at the very next traffic light make a right on Lunalillo Home Road and at the end of the long block (public playground) make a left on Poipu Drive and turn left on Kekaha PL. ALOHA

Interaction with guest

The owner is usually in Honolulu and when the house is rented he lives in the remodeled and upgraded former storage room right next to the carport, so he is in effect you "Housekeeper", but he does not mind as long as the renters are nice and want to have an enjoyable vacation in Hawaii, he will help you enjoy yourselves any way he can.. Request his 31-page Guide for Renters which is in pdf format and he will email it to you if you let him know your e-adress. ALOHA, Milan Frank Vacek, owner.

Fantastic Panoramic Views, Exceeded Expectations!

Fantastic location, incredibly beautiful panoramic views. The spirit of Hawaii and Thailand are evident everywhere, an absolutely amazing house! It`s the highest home up the side of the extinct volcano right behind which is Hanauma Bay, where the fish and turtles were incredibly friendly. It`s possible to hike over the hill from the backyard but going to Hanauma Bay by car is really a lot quicker, we could be snorkeling in just a few minutes. The solar-heated pool and jacuzzi at the house are totally private and no one could look at us as we were swimming, yet we had the amazing view of the ocean. The master bedroom up on the third floor is incredibly beautiful and has a great balcony. From the fully-equipped kitchen we could see the pool and jacuzzi and at the same time look out at the coastline all the way to Diamond Head and beyond at downtown Honolulu, and the sunsets were amazing. In the kitchen there was a really good water filter so we didn`t have to go out and buy bottled water, that was very convenient. The owners left a lot of healthy food and even delicious condiments and every kind of kitchen utensil for us to use. The owner is very health-conscious and ecologically minded, and so all the light bulbs and TV`s were the latest LED and it was great to know that the electricity and even the hot water we used came mostly from the sun! In the garden we could pick the fruit from the papaya trees and lime and other tropical trees. The owner was always ready to give helpful advice and explain how everything works. There were lots of beach chairs and umbrellas and towels and snorkeling gear for us to use. There was no city noise, in fact no noise at all, and the nights were incredibly tranquil, what a difference from noisy and hectic Waikiki! The terrific Studio Guest House where I stayed also has fantastic views of the coastline and I was amazed to learn that this Guest House was where a really famous Hawaiian-born singer stayed during his Christmas 2011 rental of this house, wow! And it was so close to lots of beautiful beaches and shopping, sometimes we just walked to the nearby shopping center. The Koko Kai Thai Palace even exceeded my expectations and I had the time of my life!

We had 5-6 couples at the house. Spectacular views. Great location for shopping, beaches, Hanauma Bay, and other attractions without being in the Waikiki and downtown congestion. Well stocked and equipped kitchen. Plenty of towels, etc. nice neighborhood to take walks. Highly recommend. It was the vacation of a lifetime

The property was everything that it is advertised to be and much more. We were a party of 10 adults and 2 small children. The house was very accommodating to all of our needs and had perfect views of the island. The facilities, house and surrounds were beyond our expectations. The house itself was open, with plenty of spots for guest to hide and read a book or to gather and entertain, and had more beds than I cared to count. It was a short walk to the local shops and bus stops, and had plenty of restaurants and things to do within the area. I highly recommend this house to anyone with a medium to large group looking for a palace to stay while on holiday.

Aloha ...My Fiance and I as well as 10 family member just stayed in Milan's beautiful Palace from March 2, 2015- March 25, 2015...it is a beautiful home, if you could even consider it such as that. This amazing residence has just beautiful views, amazing accommodations, a peaceful Pool and Jacuzzi, and an amazing location only 15 -25 minutes away from downtown Honolulu. You will be amazed by the spaciousness of this mansion...and Milan the owner of the house is an amazing person to rent from, very considerate and very loving of his renters....he made our time in Oahu amazing.

We stayed in this house for almost two weeks in Feb, 2015 and we couldn't be happier. We were initially a bit hesitant in our housing search as the house has only recently been rented out and there weren't too many reviews, but our fears were completely unfounded.
It was our big family reunion. There were five families from the East Coast USA and Korea, a total of 16 people (10 adults, 6 kids). The house instantly impressed when we walked in to the amazing views available throughout many angles. The house is big enough that we didn't feel crammed with five separate families. It provides enough personal space, but at the same time, it has many good spots for gathering. A large dining/living room, kitchen, swimming pool, and the pavilion was perfect to create some memorable family moments.
The house is also located in a really nice residential area and is close to many touristic spots and stores and restaurants. We went to Costco (10min away) multiple times to feed the big group and enjoyed ice cream shops, bakeries, and restaurants nearby. Hanauma bay (best snorkeling spot in Oahu) is only a 5min drive away, which was super convenient since traffic can be quite bad. You can also easily go to Honolulu to go to Waikiki beach or Pearl Harbor (30-40min drive) without having to stay in a crowded hotel zone.
The owner Milan is extremely nice and friendly. He is very responsive and is readily available. He is constantly maintaining the house to keep it ready for visitors. Thanks Milan for a wonderful and memorable vacation stay at your house!

My family and I spent nearly a year living in Hawaii Kai at Kokokai Palace. my wife and I have seven children and it was a challenge to find a home large enough to accommodate us. Kokokai Palace provided everything that we needed and more.
During our year we had nearly 30 visitors and we were able to accommodate all of them with ease! We thoroughly enjoyed the home during our stay. The views are dramatic. Having the pool and courtyard integrated into the home was very convenient and allowed us to enjoy the tropical setting to the maximum. The meditation gazebo available to us was also special. It was a great place to sit and watch the sunset over Diamondhead.
Now that we are back in Nebraska, suffering through frigid temperatures, we miss Kokokai Palace more than ever! We hope to visit Milan in Hawaii again. it is too bad that our responsibilities on the mainland keep us away.

I stayed at this beautiful home with nine family members for a wonderful holiday in paradise. The listing description was very accurate and the home was fantastic and the kitchen was fully equipped. The home, pool, hot tub and barbeque all very well maintained and we spent a lot of time by the pool or one of the many lanais watching the most stunning sunsets. I love to snorkel and Haunama bay was a few minutes away. The owner Milan was very gracious and informative with all our questions and even took me out snorkelling one morning! Milan stays on the property in a separate suite and it was very nice to have him close by. I have already recommended this home to a friend and would not hesitate to go back for another amazing experience.

Beautiful pool and hot tub which the kids enjoyed for hours every day after the adults were worn out from exploring the island. Big enough for 8-9 people to feel too crowded, convenient to anywhere you wanted to go. And Milan is an excellent and extremely considerate and accommodating host. I'm sorry I did not post a review earlier, just thought of it while looking on XXXX for this summer's adventure stay!
