Overview

Photos and Description of this 8 bedroom holiday home in Honolulu - Halemana

House, 8 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

A quick note before the home description below: If you would like to avoid paying this websites new service fee for booking which can be up to $399, I learned from their customer service that it is okay to reserve your dates and make your payment outside of paying through this website to avoid paying the new service fee. When you inquire for your dates through this website you can let me know that is your preference in your message and I will invoice you outside of this website to save the fee.

Aloha, this is a large 4,500 square foot 8 bedroom / 4 bath ocean view home centrally located in a prestigious neighborhood in Honolulu. The home has many positive reviews. You can have multiple families and not feel crowded with lots of space. It is located across the street from the ocean and there is room for three to four cars in the driveway and free street parking. There is an ocean view from the second story and it is a short 5 to 15 minute drive to the best beaches. We have towels, bath soap and basic needs to get you started. There are some boogie boards, beach chairs, beach toys, DVD's and board games as well. There are 8 bedrooms (1 King bedroom, 6 Queen bedrooms, and 1 bedroom with 2 Twin beds.) There are 4 full baths, 2 fully equipped kitchens, a large dining room, 2 kitchen dining areas, a living room, 2 washer/dryers and free Wifi access. From the second story there is a beautiful ocean view. Like most homes and hotels in the tropical climate of Hawaii, the large pool is not heated and will be colder in the few winter months as is usual in Hawaii. The private neighborhood dock on the ocean is just a beautiful view to see. Like most homes in Hawaii, very few homes have usable beaches for boogie boarding, etc. directly in front of or next to their properties because those are mainly reserved for the general public to have access to and the home has a great central location and the best beaches are just a short 5 to 15 minute drive away.

The drive from the Honolulu International Airport to the home is around 20 minutes, Waikiki is 10 minutes, Hanauma Bay (a must see for fish and snorkeling) is 5 minutes, Sea Life Park (to see the dolphins) is 10 minutes and Hawaii Kai Golf Course is 10 minutes away. There are three shopping centers 5 minutes away with restaurants, a Costco, supermarkets, drug store and multi-plex movie theater. You can also have fun with water sports tours and para-sailing at Koko Marina Shopping Center, 5 minutes away. The entire house sleeps up to 16 guests comfortably. Sorry no pets. This is a non-smoking rental, but smoking outside is okay.

I really work hard to give you a wonderful place to stay in Hawaii. I always welcome you to call or email me anytime as I would much rather improve your stay if you have any issues than receive a poor review.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We took a family vacation in April 2015 and stayed in this home. There were 16 of us ranging in age from 22-67. The bedrooms were all very nice and comfortable. I will note that one of the bedrooms upstairs is not enclosed, and as stated in another review, is not private. However, they did have panels that you could have put up if that is a concern for you. My parents stayed in that room and they are early risers so that was not an issue. The balcony upstairs did have a nice peek-a-boo view of the ocean which was beautiful. We had coffee up there most days. The kitchen upstairs is more dated than downstairs and we did not use it much other than the refrigerator to keep drinks in. The shower upstairs is also kind of interestingly shaped and most people did not prefer to use it, however, it is functional. The living area is perfect for large groups, we had plenty of room. The pool is not warm but we did get in it several days and that was in April. Cynthia and her son were very great to work with. The pool light was not working and her son came over and replaced it while most of us were gone for the day. Having two washers was great! The bathrooms were in fine condition for what we needed and there were plenty of towels. The house is an older home and is a little more dated than the pictures show. You will need a car if you stay here. All in all we had a very nice stay.

Perfect for a large family/group!

  • 5 of 5

A few helpful notes:

The king bedroom upstairs is not enclosed (anyone going upstairs to the second kitchen or other upstairs queen bedroom will see you). The queen bedroom with the pool view is the most private and for those of you who like it darker in your room, this room is the darkest!

We went to Oahu to get married and initially picked the queen bed room until we realized it was not private! ����

Aside from that tid bit, if you need anything while you are there, Cynthia and her son responded quickly and dropped things off within a few hours (a blender, additional boogy boards...)!

Owner's Response: Thank you Corinne for the nice review! You are welcome back anytime! For the upstairs king bedroom I do have some portable screens in the room guests can use to block off the room and I am currently looking at other options. My only hesitation about enclosing the large room with drywall is that it may make the room feel smaller and lessen the ocean view.

50th Wedding Anniversary Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home over the New Year holiday. We were a family of 16 celebrating the 50th wedding anniversary of my parents. This house was perfect for all of us, ages 7-74. There was enough room for all of us to have our own space. We gave the 6 grandchildren the upstairs area with two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and balcony. They were so happy to have their own space and so were we!! Everything that you could ask for was there and more. The location of being in the middle of Waikkii and Haunama Bay made it easy to get to everything. Everyday the kids were either snorkeling in the bay across the street or swimming in the pool. We loved having the BBQ and definitely the TWO washers and dryers. The owner was a wonderful asset as well. She was easily accessible when we had a question and she provided detailed information about the home, amenities, and nearby place of interest that we greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend this home to a family celebrating an event or just any group of people who want to enjoy Oahu and have a wonderful place to stay. Thank you Cynthia for letting us stay in your wonderful home. We have made many memories and will always treasure this vacation where we celebrated family and the 50th wedding anniversary of my parents.

Left us feeling underwhelmed...

  • 2 of 5

On the positive side, the location was a short drive (10 minutes) to a number of great beaches for snorkeling, body boarding and other tourist activities...and the owner was very nice and responsive.

On the less than positive side:

*Pool's not heated and even though it was 82 degrees outside, there was not enough direct sun to provide any heat. We were shocked at how cold it was and this really changed our plans as the pool was essentially unusable and that was a huge part of the draw for us to this property.

*While the location is a short drive to nice beaches, they are not within walking distance at least not if you plan on spending any time at the beach and need to carry things like chairs, food, drinks, etc...and the closest beaches have no waves.

*The dock is a short walk but is not on a beach, nor does it have a beach on either side of it...in general the dock provides zero value to a vacation renter and less than zero to a vacation renters kids.

*All cookware and most kitchen items are in need of immediate replacement. They don't need to be high quality, just not so over used and in poor condition.

*Several of the kitchen cabinets were in disrepair and look ready to fall off the hinges

In general we were disappointed and would not rent here again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Kip H., I take your review very seriously and I appreciate that you mentioned as an owner that I am nice and responsive and that the home is a short drive (10 minutes) to a number of great beaches for snorkeling, body boarding and other tourist activities. I really work hard to give guests of the home a wonderful place to stay in Hawaii. I always welcome guests to call or email me anytime during their stay as I would much rather improve their stay while they are here if there are any issues than receive a poor review. I wish I had known of your concerns during your stay beyond the pool being colder than you expected so that I could have immediately improved your stay. If there ever is an issue, I make it convenient because you don't have to be home and I can handle the issue while you are having fun during your stay. To address your concerns in your review, I have had a contractor fix any cabinets that needed fixing in the kitchen and I have gone through the cookware items and replaced and added more items. I have also had the yard worker cut the backyard trees to allow more sunlight to the pool during the day. I have also adjusted the property description on the website as follows with notes on the website photos: "Like most homes and hotels in the tropical climate of Hawaii, the large pool is not heated and will be colder in the few winter months as is usual in Hawaii. The private neighborhood dock on the ocean is just a beautiful view to see. Like most homes in Hawaii, very few homes have usable beaches for boogie boarding, etc. directly in front of or next to their properties because those are mainly reserved for the general public to have access to and the home has a great central location and the best beaches are just a short 5 to 15 minute drive away." I would hate to see a review which I have worked hard to correct affect my future income and I take it very seriously as you can tell. Please let me know if there is anything else I can add or do to meet your concerns. Thank you again and I welcome you back anytime.

Pool is not heated.

  • 2 of 5

We are disappointed with the pool being not heated and essentially unusable during our stay. We had several families with 9 kids and specifically wanted a home with a pool. The pool is in the shade was was too cold, rendering it useless. The property is in need of repair and dishes and utensils need to be replaced. The location is not walking distance to the beach. There is a small dock but no beach for the kids. There is also only 1 key to the dock. We made the most of the trip but would not stay in this home again. The value is not great.
