About Sonya Serene Property Manager

inventor, entrepreneur, avid swimmer, waterman, and traveler of the world

Sonya Serene Property Manager purchased this house in 2008

Why Sonya Serene Property Manager chose Hawaii Kai

I picked Portlock because when i was a little kid, i used to come here to fish, and fell in love with the quiet beauty of this idyllic, quaint, and charming place. A few years ago i purchased this home, not far from where i used to fish, and decided to remodel the back of the house to create a very large, 3400 sq ft deck with a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. The remodeling of the house was just completed with the construction of one of most expansive private decks in Hawaii for perfect outdoor living. You can still walk within a few minutes to great fishing, and diving around the corner.

What makes this house unique

You and your family will have a chance to enjoy the most amazing views and gorgeous sunset, on a great deck and at a location that is convenient, private, serene, and idyllic. you will be just minutes away from great diving, paddling, kayaking, snorkeling, banana boating, bumper tube, jet ski, parasail, wakeboard, scuba, and para sailing.

Perfectly located and spacious home with breathtaking views and an amazing deck.

  • 5 of 5

No house you rent is perfect. It just can't be, especially when it's a great rental that many people use. What makes up for this is owners/managers who respond to issues and fix them, fast. We only had a few minor ones: BBQ was out of propane. Sonya dropped one off in fifteen minutes to save dinner. Smoke alarms started to go off (two different ones on different days) both fixed before we returned home. As far as the house, it's really great! We had 10 people (6 adults, 4 kids) the room layout worked well for use (the guest house is a nice touch if you have grandparents!). The house is nicely appointed and very comfortable. The kitchen is big and has all the appliances you could want. The cookware (pans, etc) could use a refresh but we purchased a new non-stick pan and left it for future guests as our way of contributing to such a wonderful place. The deck is HUGE and has a big table + chairs. A lounger set and a bunch of sun-deck chairs. The pool is wonderful as well. The real feature is the location though. You're 20+ minutes (with traffic) from downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. Just far enough from the hustle and bustle to really enjoy the island. You are 5+ minutes from hanauma bay which was the most amazing place - great beaches and amazing snorkelling. You have food, gym, groceries all super close by. You can also go for a 30 minute drive to the white sand beaches in the windward side or the amazing lanikai pillbox hike with mind blowing views. I really can't say enough. We have been Maui fans for many years now and our previous Oahu trips yielded no change. This trip, with this house, has changed our view. We will be coming back - to this place - next year! A++

Beautiful home in a fantastic neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Sonya was great to work with; we had 12 people staying in her home which we booked less than a week before our stay. She was very accommodating and even personally brought over a propane tank for the gas grill. We all had a great vacation stay highlighted by a birthday party for my 90 year old aunt. My 92 year old mother enjoyed Hawaii very much!

There were two minor issues: gas grill did not work despite the new propane tank and old fry pans with loose handles. But those were very minor issues and did not impact our stay at all!

Mahalo, Sonya! I would definitely rent your place again....maybe in the near future!

Property was beautiful with a great view. We sat out every morning with our coffee and the sunrise.

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and wonderful. We had more than enough rooms to accommodate everybody. 7 of us rented the property and my daughter came over from school with a couple of her friends and we cooked a big dinner and grilled out. Very nice kitchen. It was really fun sitting and visiting in the home. I thought the house was in a beautiful neighborhood and easy access to where we wanted to be. The view was gorgeous and we spent a lot of time looking at it.

Sonya was very helpful when we had a couple questions and she took care of things for us. Already trying to figure out the next trip.

Love our family reunion trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that we had the family reunion trip. We decided on Honolulu because it is centralized between the States and Asia. There were total 13 of us, 7 adults and 6 kids under the age of 7. This place provided very spacious home while we are all away from home. Everyone had a bed to sleep on and the bedding was fairly comfortable. It even has an en suite which is away from the main house for those who like to sleep in or stay up late.

The kitchen was fully equipped with appliances and had all kinds of condiments ready. On the day of our check-in, a brand new dishwater was put in prior to our arrival. It was awesome especially that it was about 5 minute drive to Costco. So, for this reason, we cooked and stayed in a lot and spend a lot of time, just talking and catching up around the dinner table. However, the place is close to the Marina center where you can find lots of restaurants.

Overall, we were very happy that we found this place. Sonya the manager was especially responsive and understanding. She was there during check in and help us familiarize the place, gave good recommendation, and even when she was away, she was only a text away. She also allowed us to check out a bit late because of our flight time and with 3 toddlers. However, if I must nick pick, 1 additional bathroom would be great. And walls between rooms are not sound proof. However, we didn't really mind since the whole point of our trip was to spend every second together, and we accomplished that!
