Description from owner


Ali'i Zen Haven is located on east Oahu along beautiful Kaneohe Bay with breathtaking views of the bay, ocean, and mountains. If you’ve never stayed on this natural, scenic, and serene part of the island, you don’t know what you’re missing. The area is tailor-made for getting away from the hustle and bustle and be connected with family and friends.

This villa is a stunning contemporary luxury home complete with a POOL, hot tub, and fire pit lounge in a very private setting (no other units/homes on the property with only one adjacent neighbor - the amenities are all yours!). The five-bedroom four-bathroom home was expanded and completely remodeled in mid-2013 into a five-star luxury perfection! With high-end furnishings including Subzero, Miele, Grohe, and Bosch (gas burner) appliances in the kitchen along with stainless details and custom tile/stonework inside and out, no expense was spared. All furnishings were designer hand-picked and coordinated throughout. The entire house and surroundings were designed to capitalize on the peace, beauty, and natural “zen” of the property. From the moment you pass through the secure gated entry, you are greeted by a custom driveway and lush landscaping leading you back to the spectacular island views.

Spend time with your family and friends in the heated pool, twelve-person jetted spa or on the custom IPE deck while taking in the picturesque views of the open skies, ocean, and mountains. Dine al fresco or under the covered lanai areas surrounded by propane Tiki torches that create a warm and intimate atmosphere. Have a glass of wine and enjoy beautiful conversations under the moonlit night alongside the copper fire pit (gas) with lounge seating for 12. While inside the home, enjoy complete comfort with central air conditioning, 7 HDTV’s (including an all-weather outdoor TV), high-speed WIFI, gate/property security intercom/cameras, and a beautiful wet bar. Every room in the house has beautiful ocean and mountain views and three of the rooms have private lanais!

Beautiful Kane'ohe Bay is one of the most photographed spots on the island. A popular gathering place just offshore is the Kane'one Sandbar, which partially emerges during low tide. It is a favorite hangout spot for local residents who have boats. They like to barbecue out here, play ball games and snorkel. Kane'ohe Bay is also a breeding ground for hammerhead sharks.

This one-of-a-kind property has already generated substantial interest and bookings prior to officially coming onto the market. Now that it is officially open don’t wait too long to book your dream vacation!

“Modern, comfortable home!”

Reviewed 27 Nov 2016

As mentioned in my AirBnB review, the house is beautiful and comfortable. Well equipped and good size for the seven of us. The guest bathroom on the second floor could be improved to match level for the other bathrooms. House could also use a deep clean in certain areas like the cabinets, rugs, etc.

Owner's reply: Thank you for staying with us and for writing a review. We will take your comment into consideration and on this. Looking forward to having you again. Aloha!

“Fabulous Family Holiday”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2016

This home was a beautiful setting for a family gathering and holiday. It has 5 bathrooms and 4 bathrooms. We had a group of 11, and it sleeps 14. However, if they are all adults, I would recommend only 10 people with shared bathrooms and privacy issues and no one has to sleep in the living room. Other than that, everything you need is already there. The home is beautifully appointed, the kitchen was well stocked with everything for cooking, the closets were full of nice linens. There were soaps, shampoos, etc. in all of the bathrooms. The reservation process was very smooth, and the caretaker was very responsive when we had an issue. The entrance to the property is a little hard to find, but once you actually arrive, the home is well positioned with great views of Kaneohe Bay. There are nice seating areas for people to gather in small groups and there is also a beautiful covered patio with a large outdoor dining table. The listing doesn't mention a BBQ, but there is a large propane BBQ on property. The tiki lamps and the fire pit make it a very relaxing spot to enjoy the evening outdoors. I can't say enough about the property and our lovely stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We were happy to have you and we're looking forward to having you again. Aloha!

“Beautiful home”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2016

This property is absolutely gorgeous. The outdoor pool/spa area was our go-to spot during our stay. It's a perfect home for a group, plenty of space to spread out or to spend time together. The home is stocked with everything imaginable to host a family vacation. The alarm system is extremely high tech, requiring extreme concentration to make sure it is alarmed properly.

Owner's reply: We're happy to hear that you had a wonderful time during your vacation.We are looking forward to having you again. Aloha!

Beautiful house.. Great for families.. All the amenities one could wish for.. Every detail considered for a stress free stay. Neighborhood where house is located is less than desirable.. Some of the fixtures were a bit low making for some accidental arm and head bumps in kitchen and fans in bedrooms. Suggestion- put tape on lower bedroom step to avoid people missing it and taking a spill. Amazing stay... Perfect home for relaxation and play

Owner's reply: We are glad that you were able to enjoy a stress free vacation in our home. We have tried to continue to add amenities for our guest's enjoyment. Thank you for your suggestions. We are taking them into consideration to assure future guests a safe and relaxing stay at Ali'i Zen Haven.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"True to its word...and pictures!"
We were a little nervous about the house having never rented from the Internet before but it ended up being AMAZING! We travelled with my entire family (group of 12, 9 adults and 3 babies 1 and under) and we were all able to relax in our own spaces, although some of the rooms were smaller than presented in the pictures it was still large enough to fit a play pen in. Air conditioning was a lifesaver for the children as was the pool. The location was great as well: Safeway was just up the road, and the house was extremely private.
Care taker was extremely helpful and recommended all sorts of activities and great restaurants to check out that we would have never known about. It was a little pricey but worth every single penny! We had an amazing vacation thanks to this beautiful house and helpful people. Highly recommended.​

"Beautiful house tucked away in the heart of Kaneohe"
We stayed at the Alii Zen Haven to get ready for our wedding that was to be held in Kaneohe. It was in a great location - right along the water, but still right in town and close to stores and our wedding site. The house is renovated with modern looking amenities and furnishings. The pool is just gorgeous and overlooks the fish pond. There's even a fire pit! We loved staying there and would stay there again for our next staycation!

“Our favorite place in Hawaii”
Everything is great! My whole family was so happy with this place & just said they can stay forever without going out. Every morning while staying, we got up early in the morning. Then we enjoyed watching the Sunrise from this beautiful garden. That's our favorite of the entire vacation! Thanks for everything & we'd love to come back in the future!

“This place was heavenly”
We rented this house for one whole week and it was gorgeous. It's a little far from town of you go there often, but if not everything is in the town of Kaneohe. We had a small bug issue while being there but just remembered it's Hawaii and with doors open, it's going to happen. We had a vow ceremony with our family and friends here and it was absolutely perfect. The one down side was we had 3 little ones and it wasn't exactly the most kid friendly place but it's not like we didn't know. And the property manager took care of us every time we needed her. I was overall very pleased with the home. They did an amazing job in the remodel.
Amber Groen; April 29, 2015

My family and I visited this beautiful home two weeks ago and it was more than we could have imagined! The property is stunning and the owners provided everything that you could think of! I would come back over and over again and stay even longer if I could! The home really allows you to unwind and relax the way you should while visiting Hawaii. Thank you Ali'i Zen Haven for an unforgettable time!

The house looked exactly like the picture. The sight from backward over looking the ocean is amazing. Twelve of my family members stayed at the house all ladies and we enjoyed the wonderful kitchen. We didn't have to want for anything, they had it all. If I go back I would rent this house again.

Our group of 12 ladies had a great time in HI. We enjoyed all the beautiful aspect of the house. I would recommend this house to friends.

Heaven on earth
Beautiful house with an outstanding view. Neighborhood not top notch, but certainly not an issue. Well equiped super modern kitchen. We were a family of 10 ranging in age from 15 to 73 and everybody enjoyed our stay. Super feedback from Ellen (the owner) who came up with a lot of inside knowledge as to dining, trips, hikes etc. The house was very clean on arrival and the pool, garden was kept in perfect condition. Overall a super stay and we can only recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay in heaven (for a while)

Kaneohe House
Great house. Whoever designed it did a great job. Includes all the ammenities. Views are incredible. Little difficult to initially find due to its location, but once there it is fabulous
John, June 2014

"Incredible stay, great rental property!"
I had a group of 14 that came to stay at this property for vacation and everyone could not stop talking about how great it was. They literally have thought of everything, from Bluetooth music speakers, to usb charging outlets,to tiki torches, an extra bar and mini fridge, tons of beach and shower towels, and those are just some of the little things.They even had napkin rings for hosting a nice dinner.
A general description of the property is a large house that has plenty of beds. It has a very modern look, large kitchen space and tons of seating and 7 tvs, including one outside (Perfect for bbq's). There is a swimming pool, hot tub, outdoor showers, a fire pit, two tables for outdoor dining, and a couple of lounge chairs for sun bathing. The pictures actually resemble the property, which I was a little scared of driving into the area.It is also gated, and has a large parking area for multiple cars. Another note is the property is very private, everything is fenced in. On one side of the property is a church, so there is no one there a majority of the day. The location of the house, is up a small hill, and not within walking distance of a beach. The view from the backyard of Kaneoahe bay is spectacular. Going in March, we ended up having great weather. Lots of sun and very little rain. All around a great stay, we were so pleased with this house, and the attention to detail that the owners put into everything.

Secluded Oasis
This house was as near to perfect as you could get. There were 12 of us that stayed in the home (2 families) and at no time did we feel crowded. The outdoor seating and fire pit were amazing and were put to good use almost every night. Our kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub area any free moment they had and the older kids enjoyed laying on the patio chairs next to the pool for a little sun. We cooked almost all our suppers at the house and there was everything you could imagine very impressive. The house is relatively private and has a beautiful view of the bay the sunrises were amazing. The one small suggestion I would have is they should put some walking stones to the pool so the kids did not track in so much grass (mostly taken care of by the automatic vacuum in the pool). The best thing about the house was the location in moderate traffic you are 30 min from everything and only 5 min to the mall or grocery store.

Perfect in every way!
We stayed here over Christmas and New Years for a totally of 17 days and it's the most amazing home we've had the privilege to stay at. At one time we had a total of 15 family members and there was plenty of room for all and they were all amazed at the accommodations! We were very pleased with the information provided about the surrounding area and the property manager was very accommodating!

Perfect in everyway!
As mothers and members of a workout group, we decided to plan a weekend getaway to focus on just ourselves for a change. This place was the perfect place to do that! The landscaping, the pool, the home, and amazing view was all so enchanting and beautiful. We are all from Hawaii and it was still such an amazing experience to wake up in the morning to the beautiful view which can be seen from every room in the house! The house had everything we needed from large beach towels, serving dishes, and high end blenders and spices. Every single one of us felt rejuvenated and ready to take on our motherly duties after leaving here. You will not be disappointed with your stay and you will be dealing with wonderful owners, who are awesome and very professional. We will definitely tell everyone about this place!!
Elika; Hauula, Hawaii; March 2014

Amazing and beautiful
This house is exactly as the pictures depict. Any question or issue we had was handled promptly by the property manager or the owners. This house is top of the line in every way. We had 9 people ranging in age from 17-82 and it was wonderful. The bay is not accessible from the house, but the beaches are a short 10-min drive away. The view from dawn to dusk is stunning.
Happy Visitor; SLC; January 22, 2014

Fabulous Stay
My husband and I stayed here with our twin daughters, two friends, and a nanny. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. The house is modern, clean, and fully loaded with all essentials. We loved that the location was in a neighborhood and not in the main tourist locales. We were about 30 min from Waikiki and an hour from the North Shore. The outdoor areas at the house were great for enjoying the good weather. No complaints about this property! We'll be renting it again if we ever go back to O'ahu.
Iman; Houston, TX; December 22, 2013

My husband and I and 4 other couples stayed at the Ali'i Zen in December 2013. Initially I was concerned about the weather on the windward side in winter, but we could not have had better weather, sunny and calm every single day. The house and yard were beyond our expectations. The beds, bedding, towels, and decor are comfortable and tasteful throughout. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you can think of, and the appliances are all high end. The majority of our time was spent in the outdoor lounging area, the hot tub, and the pool. I would definitely stay here again. I can think of nothing that could be done to make this place better.

Amazing property!

Serge; Orange County; October 2, 2013

We have found paradise! Once you pass the gates you enter a world of true serenity. Perched above beautiful Kanehohe Bay you leave the hubbub and congestion of Oahu to the most wonderous splendor of Ali’I Zen. The sound of incoming tide, the chirping of birds, and the morning mists rolling onshore nestling the mountains on the opposite shore. A sunrise swim unites mind and body in perfect peace. From king crab feasts on the spacious outdoor patio prepared in a gourmet chef’s dream kitchen to the s’mores shared with the kids at the firepit in the evenings, dining is always a relaxing treat. Just a few blocks away are great take-out, family-budget friendly restaurants including Mexican, Thai, salads, and sushi for those wanting freedom from cooking. Even with the largest groups like our family of 13, ranging in age from toddlers to senior citizens, there were always plenty of opportunities to separate for some real personal time in the gorgeous indoor and outdoor spaces. The owner and caretaker are fully committed to making your vacation care-free and memorable - seeing to your every personal need and those of your guests. Complete guide books detailing how to run every appliance and all the outdoor specialties such a heated spa, tiki torches, and fire pit are supplied to easy use by guests. They have thought of everything to make this vacation an absolute paradise. Can’t wait to come back and create new memories!
