Description of the Portlock vacation home rental
The headline may seem pretentious but this is what so many visitors to the home say as well as being called 'their favorite home' by most movie/TV show location scouts. Now for the first time ever our unique private home will be shared to Travelers from around the world. Best Ocean-frontage, Best Weather, ONE PRICE 8-29 Nights! There are NO discounts and it is priced for 8 NIGHTS but due to a new City ordinance we have to offer the entire month but you can sty as few days as you wish to. The members of your rough must be the same and can not be exchanged according to City ordinance. This property is undisputed island living at it's finest. This Hawaiian style oceanfront home is perched 65 feet above sea level, giving you the best perspective of the ocean. It's also located in the breeziest and sunniest locales on the island of Oahu and faces due West. For those seeking privacy and serenity, look no further.

Convenient yet as far out into the ocean as possible and simply a stunning place to be. Along one side of the property is a large private tropical jungle ravine with banana, coconut, papaya trees with a country-like feel. Access to ocean is down a private meandering grass path to where there is a rarely visited cove with olivine sand next to it. Absorb the incredible views of mountains, deep blue and crystal clear ocean, sunsets behind Diamond Head, whales and dolphins frolicking with the rhythm of the ocean (in season).

Perched on the cliffs in prestigious Koko Kai, in the Portlock area, this home has the most amazing views of any rental in the area due to it's incredible position on the cliffs. This home also directly fronts a very rare spitting cave/ocean blow hole (not THE well known Spitting Cave). On the ocean side of the home is a infinity swimming pool/spa with deep-ocean blue tile surrounded by cut lava stone pool deck. Next to it and elevated is a large BBQ lanai for outdoor entertaining. From there you can see the lawn, pool, mountains and ocean. You have ocean views from 3 dining areas; the outdoor BBQ lanai, dining area and the living room.

The Master Suite, private lanai and bath are direct ocean frontage. Every one of the 4 bedrooms has its own private bath. The large office is located next to the powder room.
Sleeps 8 in rooms. Nap, read or just soak in the sounds of waves, wind and birds on the oceanfront lanai on a Queen size Hawaiian daybed known as a pune'e. There is also a daybed in the office to relax and keep your loved ones company while they do their work. One of the rooms is a Guest Suite with kitchenette and separate entrance which can be separated from the rest of the house if needed.

Ocean activity opportunities abound such as scuba diving, boat rides, swimming and surfing. Golf, hiking, tennis, hiking and great walking around the neighborhood.

This property has been used in numerous TV shows, movies, national and international advertising. Obviously a special slice of paradise to be chosen.
Area Information
The area Blue Hawaii Kai is located is prestigious due to it's location on the Eastern end of Oahu. The weather is considered the best because the area projects into the ocean as the clouds gather and move down the mountain chain down the middle of the island. This gives the best dry and sunny weather area of Koko Kai in Portlock the advantage of premier weather condense cupped with the quietness only area far from highways can expect to enjoy.

Perfect Island Home! Fantastic views!

January 5, 2015

First thing we fell in love with was the open floor plan, then Rob and Annie showed us the patio and the view... This is where we spent 90% of our time. We watched every sunset and even saw some whales splashing around in the ocean two days in a row. The sunsets were phenomenal. We dropped everything we were doing to be sure to watch them every night and it was quite a show. Then there is the blowhole, a cove in the shale near the shore line. The waves crash against the shore and shoot up in the air creating a thundering sound and beautiful sight. We took the pathway down to the shoreline to watch up close and found ourselves just staring for an hour. It's pretty cool. About the house as a rental. We try to rent a home whenever we travel. This is one of the best homes we ever stayed in. The home was very well kept and, besides food and drink, had everything you could possibly need. The home is private and quiet but close to a mall, Costco and restaurants. If we did need to run out for anything it was a short 10 minute drive and done. No wasting your vacation time driving for an hour and battling with crowds.Rob was more than willing to help us with any questions we had and gave us a lot of suggestions for things to do in the area. We will stay here again for sure. No question. Honestly, out of all the homes we've stayed in, I wish we could live in this home forever.

DOLPHINS, WHALES & TURTLES FROM THE YARD!

As other reviewers have mentioned, this house is all about outdoor living. In the mornings we watched dolphins and turtles pass by the bottom the yard, while in the evening we watched spectacular sunsets across the bay. As you might expect for this level of property, the house is kitted-out with a great kitchen and an outdoor BBQ, while the rooms all have big TVs. When not lounging in the backyard or splashing in the pool and spa, we were able to tear ourselves away for trips into Waikiki (about 20 minutes) and hikes around Koko head and Hanauma Bay.

HEAVAN ON EARTH

This beautiful place is amazing! At first I was concerned that the indoor outdoor living would means bugs and safety concerns, but it was quit the opposite. I was there for 12 days and never bit by a mosquito and I felt very safe in this gorgeous neighborhood! The yard provides easy access to China Walls where you can watch the turtles and jump in the ocean. The beautiful pool and lanai are a great place to relax and enjoy the sun in privacy or have a romantic dinner while you watch the sunset in the evening and then whatch the wales in the morning. This is my heaven on earth and I look forward to returning every year!

FIRST RATE ISLAND GETAWAY WITH CHARMING HOSTS.

We have been coming to the Aloha state almost every year and have rented wonderful homes on Kauai and the Big Island (not to mention some luxury hotel stays). This was by far our favorite rental. When we arrived, Rob (the owner) greeted us to show us around. He was helpful with unloading our car (super helpful since I was nursing a broken shoulder). As we asked him about local take-out or delivery joints, he offered to run get us Thai food. He said, "I know what to get and how much to get." He came back with some amazing food which allowed us to get settled. In terms of the setting, you could not get better. An unobstructed view of the ocean and Diamond Head; a private trail down to the water to explore the tide pools, just around the corner from the best snorkeling beach around; close enough to Honolulu for a day trip or an evening outing; far enough away that you don't have to have any contact with Waikiki if you don't want to. Also, you can zip around to the other side of the island without venturing into downtown. Now to the house. The bedrooms were spacious and were spaced enough to allow privacy. Frequently a problem for rentals, the beds here were all comfortable. Additionally, one of the bedrooms had a little private entrance and a kitchenette which was perfect for our nanny. The openness of the home meant that there is essentially no separation between indoor and outdoor living. The pictures don't really do the layout justice or give a sense about how much this is inside/outside living. The kitchen had all the accoutrements one needed: spices, olive oil, coffee, tons of condiments and plenty of cutting boards and pots/pans. This made meal preparation so much easier. Then to the pool and the hot tub. They were great. It was hard to drag the kids away to do anything else. One problem with traveling to Hawaii in parts of winter is that most pools are not heated. This pool is heated (and heats up super quickly which means no need to leave the heat on all the time). We spent countless hours watching the kids swim and play while we enjoyed a blended drink, reading a book, watching whales/parasailers and waiting for the sun to set. All we can say is go with confidence. You have the perfect home with helpful and classy hosts.

MY FAVORITE WEEK OF THE YEAR.

This was my third time staying at this residence. My girlfriend has always asked, "why don't you want to go in to town"? One day at this house and you'll know why I respond "why would I". Even though downtown is an easy and short drive from this amazing Portlock home it's hard to leave when you have an amazing pool, a 30 second walk to China Walls and an incredible view of the ocean and Diamond Head........ even from the kitchen and living room!! If I do leave it is in a great location with easy access to Kona Brewing, Costco for BBQ supplies, wine, beer etc. and Hawaii Kai golf course which is ten minutes away as well. I have seen whales on every visit from the lanai and I look forward to my annual visit more and more every year. If you are considering a visit to Oahu do not hesitate to book this house as your destination. Even if you plan on visiting the entire island this is the perfect spot to end your day watching the sun set over Diamond Head from the hot-tub. It truly is the most amazing house I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.

BEST HOUSE I'VE EVER SEEN IN HAWAII

I'm born and raised on Oahu in Hawaii Kai. As a photographer/cinematographer I have been in many houses all over the islands for different shoots and I can easily say this is the best house I've ever been in. The style is impeccable. Blue Hawaii Kai has a timeless luxury feel from the lava rock tile on the pool deck to the open air rock garden as you walk in. Yet the home is casual and welcoming.

The view of Diamond head is breathtaking and can be seen from the deck, the living room, the kitchen, and the master bedroom. I could spend hours mezmorized just watching Maunalua Bay from anywhere in the house. A quick walk down the steps and your at a secluded cove overlooking the deep blue Ocean. Theres only one way to truly experience this house and thats to do it in person. Amazing!

Hawaii Kai, Hawai'i, JUNE, 2015

WHAT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

What a wonderful stay and a beautiful home. We took advantage of the outdoor space every day, the pool, grassy area, pool lounge chairs, unbeatable views! The owner Rob, was more than hospitable with coconut and papaya for us right from the backyard! Thank you!

THIS HOUSE BEAT OUR EXPECTATIONS, THE PHOTOS DON'T DO IT JUSTICE!

There were 6 adults and 4 children with ages 9, 4, 3, and 2 in our group. Everyone of us enjoyed this house very much. The ocean view is really breathtaking. We enjoyed the view from sunrise to sunset. Children absolutely loved the infinity-styled swimming pool. Its much larger and nicer than the picture shows. I took my kids to the pool to enjoy sunshine and the amazing view at least twice a day. The hot-water Jacuzzi next to the pool is very lovely as well.

The kitchen is fully equipped with juice mixer, excellent coffee maker, dishwasher, rice cooker, and all the things someone would hope to have in their kitchen. We were able to cook in both Chinese style and Western style with ease. The host even provided spices and sauces for Chinese cooking. They even treated us to great Chinese meal from a local restaurant the evening we arrived which made the evening more relaxing.

All 4 bedrooms are all nice, large yet cozy, each with its own bathroom. The office was nice with 3 work stations, Wi-Fi, day bed to rest and a powder room right next to it.
There is an Apple TV in the living room so we were able to airplay our own movies for our Children.

Its conveniently located in a quiet upscale neighborhood called Portlock. A few local shopping malls, including Costco, Safeway, fast food, restaurants and other stores are within 5-10 minute drive.

Most important of all, the owner, Rob, is very nice and gracious. It was really easy and comfortable to communicate with him before, during and after our stay.

All-in-all, this house beat our expectation. The pictures shown really don't do it justice. It is much nicer and more beautiful than the pictures show. I would absolutely recommend this house to our friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are fun things to do in the area?
A: Great activities in the ocean. Many stores to rent the equipment you'll need and are only a mile away. The hiking on the Makapuu paved trail is one of the most outstanding views on the island. There many trails that are not too tough and all within 2 miles. Some people say the home is like a private mini-resort so relaxing on-site is great too.
Q: What makes my home special?
A: Most people say our home is "the nicest home they've ever seen" and we think, if they only knew how great it "lived".
Looks are one thing but the way a place feels while living there is totally something else. Quiet, private, low key are words I would add to the beauty description.
Q: What's THE coolest nearby activity that I just have to do?
A: CALL ME, you tell me what you're interested in and I'll educate you about all I know about Hawaii. We're conveniently located so everything is within a half our unless you go the the North Shore one day. I'm 6th generation on the Western side from England. Also being native Hawaiian helps to understand the complexities of Hawaii. Personally I love ocean sports and like to surf, so just call before, or during your visit and we can discuss the activities you desire and I'll point you in the right direction.
