Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Honolulu - KokoKaiThaiPalace com ID939401
5 bedrooms and 4 full baths and 2 half-baths, Main House and Cottage, Sleeps 15
Koko Kai Thai Palace com (Aloha Palace com) Last chance to rent this very unique home until July 2015 is January 2015. The Palace can only be rented just once in any month so once it is rented in January that is it! Please do not rely on the Instant Rental Rates Quotes Feature of this portal, which has not been calculating properly the rental for homes such as the Palace located in strictly residential areas of Honolulu which by law can only be rented just once in any 30-day period, so usually it is not possible to rent this home for just one week because of the many expenses and costs of ownership and maintenance in top condition of a home such as KokoKaiThaiPalace which simply cannot be covered by a rental for just one week per calendar month. Therefore in the Rates Section there are minimum rental periods which exceed the 7-nights ('One Week') price quote, but this portal has been automatically calculating the additional nights at nonsensical rates per night, usually much higher but newly also lower than they should be so it is as far as I am concerned 'dysfunctional', so please always contact the owner Milan Vacek by phone or e-mail. Just add up the listed cost of the first week for the given month plus the cost of the additional nights and add 13.962% Tax. The longer you stay, the less you pay for the additional nights beyond the first week (7 nights). The cost of the additional nights beyond the first week is clearly listed in the season category heading as the „Xtra“ night price. The 1 week price is only valid if you rent for at least the minum rental period specified in a given calendar month, longest rental wins. It is always best to call the owner Milan Vacek. KokoKaiThaiPalace is a custom home (actually two homes, a very large three-story home with an elevator, and also a separate guest cottage located across the swimming pool from the main home) nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac in the Triangle/Portlock exclusive residential area of Koko Kai in South-East Honolulu in Oahu). This magnificent villa built by Zen Buddhists in the style of a Palace in Thailand, with many exotic hard woods and marble imported from Thailand, features altogether 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and 2 half-baths, with additional sleeping quarters furnished with comfortable Italian designer convertible futon-sofas to sleep a total of 15 adult guests. The Separate-Entry Housekeepers/Storage Room located next to the Carport is not subject of this rental agreement. This magnificent villa is located high up above the other villas on the side of the extinct crater on the other side of which is the world-famous Hanauma Bay nature preserve which has a pristine sandy beach and very protected live coral snorkling and diving. Yes, incredible as it sounds, Hanauma Bay is located just over the crater's edge from the backyard of the villa. The home offers beautiful wrap-around views from every room and amazing views of the sunset over Diamond Head crater on Waikiki Beach, ocean and surf views by day and City lights by night, and bonus views of the mountains and marina as well! Custom finishes include exotic imported hard woods, granite & marbles throughout. This property has a great floor plan for a large family, and includes a studio in the separate-entrance Guest Cottage, separate office area, swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Indoor and Outdoor entertainment space, extra family/TV room with the latest model Large 3D Flat TV's with all the premium cable TV Entertainment channels with the Premium Channel Cable Tuner at every TV location. There is a complimentary land line with unlimited calling in Hawaii as well as in all of the USA, with extension cables newly installed into all bedrooms including the Guest Cottage and the Master Bedroom so you do not have to be a slave to your cell-phone to stay in touch, and a 100Mb/sec- DEDICATED Fiber-Optic Super High Speed broad-band unlimited internet connection both via ethernet local network cable as well as via WIFI, all at no extra charge. There is 3+ car private parking with gated entry. You can comfortably walk from this home to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve in 5-10 minutes so you don't need a car to go swimming and snorkeling and diving in the world-famous Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve where every creature including the very friendly and docile tropical fish, the large green turtles and even the live coral are protected and the general public and tourists get to watch a short 10 min. movie about the ecology and conservation efforts to appreciate the natural wonders of this bay which until 1950 was reserved for the exclusive use of the Hawaiian Royal family, prior to their first swimming or snorkeling or diving. You can drive to Hanauma Bay in only about two minutes and the parking all day costs only $1.00, and you will have more time to spend swimming, snorkeling and just soaking up the sun on the beautiful white sandy beach! This villa is also within walking distance to 3 shopping centers and fine dining and casual restaurants, gym and theater! Public transportation is also conveniently close-by at the entrance to the Hanauma Bay parking lot, so you can go all around the island of Oahu by bus if you wish for just a few dollars!
The main three story house with the elevator and the Luxurious Third Floor Master-Bedroom with it's own Jacuzzi Whirlpool bath-tub, and the separate Guest Cottage provide plenty of sleeping accommodations, as well as generously large living areas, and on the ground floor is an awe-inspiring marble-floor formal gathering area with a bar and georgeous wrap-around views ideal for receptions. There are fruit trees on the tropical landscaped grounds, and unlimited reverse-osmosis filtered and energized water available to you at no charge on tap in the kitchen!
If you are looking for a luxurious yet very private vacation home very close to the best swimming and snorkeling beach on Oahu, with a pool and jacuzzi located so high above the other homes in the area that you have total privacy, and one-with-nature Thai architecture that will take your breath away, this is your best choice! While you can see unobstructed views of the coastline from almost every window, no one can see you so your absolute privacy is assured!
This luxury home was recently extensively upgraded. The swimming pool and jacuzzi have been upgraded so that there is no chlorine used, and the pool stays squeeky clean because it is a so-called 'Salt-Water Pool' which means that there is some sea salt added but it's only about 1/10 as salty as the ocean, and through ozonation the pool is cleaned by oxygen and sand-filtration, so that between the healthy water in the pool and the fantastic and absolutely private views from the pool and jacuzzi you are going to have the experience of your life-time! No swimming suit required! State-of-the-art 'Blazing Tubes' Solar Water-Heating Panels make sure that the outdoor jacuzzi is heated ecologically, with any excess hot water so generously generated by the warm Hawaiian sun 'spilled' over into the swimming pool to make it warmer as well, all without any guilt about wasting the earth's non-renewable resources! Domestic hot-water (showers etc.) is also solar-heated!
Because this house is located in the prestigious KokoKai Triangle/Portlock residential beach-side area of Honolulu where by law same as in other residential areas of the city of Honolulu the houses can only be rented just once in any 30-day period and due to the economics of ownership and maintenance in top condition of such a magnificent house it simply is not economically feasible to rent the house for less than approx. ten days - two weeks except perhaps under special circumstances such as a last minute cancellation when you might be able to rent it for just one week or hopefully you will stay longer.The owner thus naturally must prefer longer term rentals and therefore the price per additional nights is going to be substantially lower if you stay longer than one week. With all the 'green' ecological measures that the owner has taken to reduce the operating cost of the house and it`s ecological 'footprint', the utility bill for electricity has gone down making it even more logical to prefer to rent the house for longer periods and can offer you very special deals on stays longer than a week, ideally for up to a month, or longer. The rental period of your vacation rental of my home must all be within the same calendar month, or in exceptional situations like Christmas-NewYears no more than a maximum of just one or two days into the following calendar month,or 1 day into the preceeding month in order for the owner to have a good chance to realize twelve rentals in a calendar year.The peak rental season as far as the rental cost is June through September and December (Christmas/NewYears), and prices may vary depending on how many persons are in your group, how many adults vs how many kids, although so long as your group is less than about 15 persons altogether you will still receive the rental rates that you see published on this portal which are however subject to change without notice until paid for. Please always call and e-mail (recommend to do both) the Owner, Milan Frank Vacek (literally anytime 24/7) to: firstname.lastname@example.org , who now lives in Honolulu, at +1 818 424 5633 or at his landline +1 808 200 2766. Owner Milan Frank Vacek, Hawaii State Tax ID: W25873967-01. So please ask the owner Milan Vacek to give you a special rate particularly for extended stays, that way you will be able to leisurely visit all the wonders of Oahu and really relax on your vacation! The owner Milan Vacek hopes to rent the home for longer terms preferably for several months, but please always do inquire about the possibility of shorter rentals of at least a week as well. The rental period does not have to be any particular length of time and the arrival and departure dates can be on any day of the week, so call Milan now!

About Milan Vacek, Skype name: milanvacek or also milanhawaii on my other laptop PC
Aloha, in January 2011 I purchased the home of my dreams in the exclusive Triangle/Portlock residential area of Honolulu in Hawaii Kai, and I invested not only lifetime savings but had to sell the villa in my native city of Prague that was in our family for 80 years in order to be able to buy it, and still ended up with a small mortgage to pay for the next 30 years! If it were not for the mortgage I would be living in my dream home right now, and I would not be renting it. I enjoy making the house even a little bit better every chance I get and knowing that vacation renters and their families enjoy spending their reunions and special celebrations at my house. In 2013 I widened the driveway, extensively remodeled a separate-entrance storage room adjacent to the carport by adding a bathroom and transformed it into a completely self-sufficient caretakers/storage room for myself, and installed a solar photovoltaic system to make the house even more ecological than before. I still have a business in Prague in my native Czech Republic, BioMarket, where I returned from Los Angeles following the Velvet Revolution of 1989. I will have to rent my beautiful home at least most of the year to cover the expenses of the house, but now I rent the palace myself and do not pay any commissions to any rental agency! The house was 'perfect' when I bought it and all my efforts since then have been to make it an even better place to live for me and my family, which should make it even more attractive and comfortable for you to stay in when you rent it. All improvements that I make and all purchases of new LED TV sets and other electronics and furniture are done with the long-term best interests in mind, and as a result of a recent visit of my ninety-year-old parents from Los Angeles the villa will be even more handicapped-access friendly. I hope that you will enjoy staying in my home as much as my family and I do. I now live in Honolulu :-) . ALOHA, Milan Vacek, AlohaPalace co
Milan Vacek, Skype name: milanvacek or also milanhawaii on my other laptop PC purchased this villa in 2011
Why Milan Vacek, Skype name: milanvacek or also milanhawaii on my other laptop PC chose Honolulu
I purchased this particular home because from the first moment that I saw it and especially once I was inside and saw the spectacular unobstructed views of the coastline and all the beautiful massive wood and marble and huge picture windows construction with plentiful louvered and screend windows for natural flow-through ventilation and the elevator to connect the three levels of the main house as well as the georgeous separate entrance Studio Guest Cottage I just knew that I had to buy it ... and I did! The home was not cheap, but just a couple of years before I purchased it, it was listed for sale for more than double the price that I had purchased it for, and the owners who built this magnificent home with so much love and caring and with no expense spared had invested so much money into making it the beautiful palace that it is that just about all the money that I paid them went just to pay off their mortgage, so I have no doubt that it was a 'bargain', and I am very proud to be the owner. I had resolved after seeing dozens of other beautifull homes mostly scattered over the nearby hilltops that I wanted to live in the Triangle area because of the proximity to the world-famous Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve in order to be close to the beautiful sheltered beach and live coral and incredibly tame fish and large green turtles with which I so much enjoy snorkeling and hope to be also scuba-diving in the future, which is only a short walking distance from the villa, as are several excellent public schools, shopping centers and many other attractions. I had toyed with the idea of buying a home in the 'marina' area which would have had a slip and the possibility of having a boat with which I could have had easy access to the sea, but because of the low bridge under which all boats have to go it is not possible to have a sailboat and in the wake of the recent tsunami disasters in Thailand and Japan I wanted to be 50+ m high above any tsunami dangers which my house is.
What makes this villa unique
I love the fact that the home is ideally located high up the side of the extinct crater way above all the surrounding homes offering spectacular unobstructed views of the coastline, and enjoying natural easy breazes from the ocean which flow through the many louvered and screened windows to offer perfectly comfortable fresh air at all times without any need for airconditioning or heating year-round, at one with nature, just as the builders, who are Zen-Buddhists (Swiss professor and his Thai wife) had intended to be, a perfect place for contemplation, meditation, relaxation and regaining new energy. I hope that you will enjoy staying in my home as much as I do. It is called the KokoKaiThaiPalace (com) because it is on the seeward ('Kai') side of the extinct Koko Crater, and it was built like a Thai Palace, and the street that it is on, Kekaha Place, well isn`t it a coincidence, that 'Kekaha' in Hawaiian means 'The Place' ! This is my place in paradise! I looked up the word Kekaha on Google and the story goes that some locals were driving or perhaps walking around the Island of Kauai and one of them suddenly exclaimed to the others 'KEKAHA !' - there it is - pointing out a bay where something exciting happened in his life, perhaps he caught a big fish, and since that time that bay is called Kekaha Bay, and in fact all the street names in this part of Hawaii Kai are named after various geographical features and tourist attractions on the island of Kauai, like Poipu Drive at the corner!
