Description from owner


Our country beach house is located on the Island of Oahu approximately one hour from Honolulu and the Airport. The house is a six-bedroom, four-bath, two-story home on an acre beach lot with an outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean and an all sport court (paddle tennis, basketball, and badminton) in a fenced compound. Each floor has a master bedroom overlooking the ocean and there is a full kitchen on each floor so it is designed to accommodate two families. 

There is a massage deck and hammock hidden in a tree-covered area for privacy and it is only yards from the beach. There is also an outdoor dining area that seats 10 under the trees for that perfect BBQ. There are beautiful views of the ocean from the wrap-around decks. It is literally one of the most beautiful protected bays in the Islands. Many of the older families in Honolulu have their private beach homes on this bay. The house is a quiet, upscale property which is popular with local artists, writers, etc.

The north shore takes you from the hustle of Honolulu to explore some of the most pristine beaches. Nearby beaches include Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and Ehukai Beach.

Please note that Moani Kaiolohia is a licensed Hawaiian Vacation Rental.

“Hawaii family”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2017

This wa our 12th year staying at the house. It was wonderful, Carol was great. Just looking forward to 2018.

“A week in paradise”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2017

This is an exceptional property. Clean, equipped and right on the beach. The beach directly in front is too rocky to play on but a short walk North is a lovely uncrowded spot. Hot tub was used a lot and meals were enjoyed with easy to use kitchen facilities and outdoor barbecue. Washers and dryers. Very quiet and secluded. Sleeping was easy and bedrooms perfect. We were a family of 11 adults but this place could accomodate 12 adults (our original plan) with everyone having space of their own. Families larger could fit and large loft which we didn't use could fit even more. Their on site hostess was helpful but we didn't use her very much as we didn't need to as we are familiar with the Islands. Close to the PCC (2 min), the Temple (1 min), surrounding beaches, activities on the North Shore. If you are looking to relax and enjoy quiet this is the place. It isn't the least expensive stay on the North Shore but exceeds any other we have stayed at.

Owner's reply: Aloha Dave! Mahalo for an exceptional review. We are happy to hear that you were able to relax and enjoy the quiet atmosphere in Moani Kaiolohia. We would love to have you again in the near future. Mahalo!

“Ohana Vacation”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

Overall, Moani Kai was perfect for our ohana vacation. We couldn't ask for a better location for activities and beaches. The Keanu Zipline was awesome, Shark Cove for snorkeling and Waimea Beach for cliff diving was so much fun! We did have a couple issues at the house: didn't have a front door key for 3 days so one of the boys had to climb through a window; ceiling fans were not working in 2 bedrooms, outdoor lights on deck and grill patio were out and Carol was away during the last few days. Despite these issues, we would recommend Moani Kai.

Owner's reply: Aloha Karen, It's good to hear you guys enjoyed your stay in Moani Kai.We were really excited reading your review. We also appreciate the feedback that you gave and will look into this. Thank you for the review. We look forward to your next visit. Mahalo

“A great house to house the whole family!”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I had seen the house over 15 years ago as I walked the beach. I remember saying at the time that I wished we could rent it for a family vacation. What a surprise when I found it listed on VRBO when searching for a place for our long anticipated family reunion with our children and grand children. A great price and on the North Shore where the pace is more "Hawaiian Style".....meaning very beautiful and above all restful. There was so much to do in the area to keep all of us happy and busy. Loved having 2 washers and 2 dryers so we didn't have to pack so much!

Owner's reply: We are happy to host you and your family. Happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay in Moani Kaiolohia. Why only 4 stars? Is there anything that we can improve on? Please let us know. Mahalo Patricia!

“Great Vacation Stay”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2016

So glad we got to stay at Moani Kai house. It was everything we had hoped it would be. The kids especially loved being right on the beach. Hope someday to go back. It was amazing.
