|Minimum Stay||13 - 30 nights|
KokoKaiThaiPalace com (Aloha Palace com). First Available Rental month is May 2017. Hurry and Call Owner Milan and book NOW before it`s booked out! Honolulu homes can by law be rented only for a minimum term of 30 days regardless whether you actually stay that long and these 30-day rental periods must not overlap. The Rental Rate Quoting Feature of this portal is not designed to calculate properly the rental for homes such as the Palace located in a strictly residential area of Honolulu which must be rented most months for at least 14 nights of physical stay (entire month rental is preferred) because of the many expenses and costs of ownership and maintenance in top condition of a home such as the KokoKaiThaiPalace which simply cannot be covered by a rental shorter than 14 nights per calendar month, but you are welcome to inquire anyway. A rental request for occupancy for fewer than 14 nights may not be accepted at the published "nightly" rate which is only valid for rentals for at least 14 nights, and rental requests for an entire calendar month will usually take precedence over requests for a rental for a shorter term of actual physical presence at the house, just as even longer term rental requests for several months will. Only because the owner has newly redesigned the rental rates information to only quote the nightly and the monthly rental rate this portal now quotes the correct price but only if you are sure to enter the entire month or exactly 14 nights as your desired stay, no other period. Please always contact the owner Milan Vacek by phone or e-mail or Skype for the correct rental cost for any period shorter or longer than 14 nights. For rentals longer than 14 nights you can just add up the quoted cost of the first 14 nights for the given month plus the cost of the additional nights specified for that month in the heading and add 13.962% Tax. The longer you stay, the less you pay for the additional nights beyond the minimum 14-night nightly rate specified, and usually the longest rental request wins. There is no extra charge for up to 20 adults and/or kids accommodated at the Palace at any one time, who of course can check-in and check-out at will. 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 very quiet cul-de-sac in the Triangle/Portlock exclusive residential area of Hawaii Kai in South-East Honolulu on Oahu. This magnificent villa built by Zen Buddhists in the style of a Palace in Thailand, with many exotic hard woods and marble tile imported from Thailand, features altogether 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and 2 half-baths, with 5 King size beds (one in each of the 5 bedrooms) and additional sleeping quarters furnished with Queen beds and comfortable Italian designer sofa-beds to sleep a total of 20 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 wall 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 with a myriad of friendly fish and tame green turtles and is ideal for snorkeling and diving. Yes, incredible as it sounds, Hanauma Bay is located over the crater's wall from the backyard of this villa. Just hike up a dry creek bed to the rim of the crater and hike around Hanauma Bay, but make sure that you do not attempt to enter Hanauma Bay without watching the mandatory 9-minute educational video and paying the modest entry fee. If you are a Hawaii resident or in the military or 12 years or younger admission is free. Anyone entering between opening at 6:00AM and approx. 7:00AM when the first of the box-office workers arrive, or during last hour of operation also legally get in for free. Hanauma Bay is closed on Tuesdays. The home offers beautiful wrap-around views from every room with amazing views of the sunset over Diamond Head crater and 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 with a four-poster King size wooden bed in the separate-entrance Guest Cottage, a separate office area, swimming pool and Jacuzzi, Indoor and Outdoor entertainment space, extra family/TV room, 6 latest model Large 3D Flat TV's with all the premium cable TV Entertainment channels with a Premium Channel Cable HD Tuner at every TV location. There is a complimentary land line with unlimited calling in Hawaii and the USA and Canada, and 300Mb/sec. Oceanic TWC Dedicated Super High Speed Broad-Band unlimited internet connection both via Ethernet Cat 6 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 prior to their first visit a beautiful short 9 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. You can drive to Hanauma Bay in only about two minutes and the parking all day costs only $1.00, to give you more time for 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, 24/7 gym and a movie theater! Public 'The Bus' transportation is also conveniently close-by at the entrance to the Hanauma Bay parking lot, and KokoMarina Shops, 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 newly also has a Queen-size bed in addition to the California King TempurPedic, and the separate Guest Cottage has an impressive 4-poster wooden bed and a large bathroom with custom marble tub and shower. On the ground floor is an awe-inspiring marble-floor formal gathering area with a bar and gorgeous wrap-around views ideal for receptions, and newly also two high quality sofa-beds which are placed together make a King size bed in this non-traditional movie studio- like setting. 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 there is no chlorine added, 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 a UV-Light and sand-filtration, so that between the healthy water in the pool and the fantastic absolutely private views from the pool and jacuzzi you are going to have the experience of your life-time! No swimming suit required! '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 solar-heated! Photovoltaics make electricity! Be sure to download the owner`s own detailed guide for renters which can be easily downloaded from the owner`s own website AlohaPalace com from a link right after the first Palace photo. With all the green ecological measures that the owner has taken to reduce operating cost of the house and its 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 2 weeks ideally for up to a month or longer. The requested rental period of your vacation rental should all be within the same calendar month, or in exceptional situations like Christmas-NewYears no more than a maximum of just one day into the following calendar month or 1 day into the preceeding month in order for the owner to be able to realize twelve rentals in a calendar year.The peak rental season as far as the rental cost is July and August, and December, and prices may vary depending on various factors but as long as your group is less than about 20 persons altogether at the house at any one time you will still receive the rental rates that you see published on this portal. Utilities are included! Please always first (both) call and e-mail the owner, Milan Frank Vacek, who lives mostly in Honolulu, literally anytime 24/7, at his US i-Phone: 818 4345633, and if you do not reach him always send an SMS and he will call you. Be sure to book your rental early. ALOHA :-)
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 25 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 knowing that vacation renters and their families enjoy spend their reunions and special celebrations at my house and always make the house even a little bit better every chance I get. 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 BioMarket.cz business in Prague in my native Czech Republic, 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 is even a bit 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 :-)
Milan Vacek, Skype name: milanvacek . Owner will call you via Skype anywhere! purchased this villa in 2011
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 screened 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 Palace is.
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 breezes 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! The first available open term for you to rent the KokoKaiThaiPalace com (aka AlohaPalace com) is Sept 2016, preferably for the entire calendar month, at the unprecedented low rental rate advertised in the "Rates Section.". The AlohaPalace may be available not just for vacation rentals but also for long term rentals lasting several months or longer, you are welcome to inquire with the owner, Milan Vacek, now in Honolulu, firstname.lastname@example.org . Hurry, book now!

The house was everything promised and more. The owner, Milan, was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed and more. I would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful home in Hawai'i Kai!! Loved everyday we were there. It was so accommodating to my family and friends. It is close to shopping and restaurants - so convenient. I would highly recommend this house for your next vacation home, especially if you are expecting a large group! Mahalo, Milan!!
Spent the entire month of Feb with 4 to 5 other couples. Great place from which to enjoy all that Oahu has to offer. Fabulous sunsets without having to leave the premises. Shopping and restaurants as well as world class beaches and snorkeling within minutes. Milan very helpful with any concerns that might come up. Would highly recommend to family and friends.
We had 5-6 couples at the house. Spectacular views. Great location for shopping, beaches, Hanauma Bay, and other attractions without being in the Waikiki and downtown congestion. Well stocked and equipped kitchen. Plenty of towels, etc. nice neighborhood to take walks. Highly recommend. It was the vacation of a lifetime
The property was everything that it is advertised to be and much more. We were a party of 10 adults and 2 small children. The house was very accommodating to all of our needs and had perfect views of the island. The facilities, house and surrounds were beyond our expectations. The house itself was open, with plenty of spots for guest to hide and read a book or to gather and entertain, and had more beds than I cared to count. It was a short walk to the local shops and bus stops, and had plenty of restaurants and things to do within the area. I highly recommend this house to anyone with a medium to large group looking for a palace to stay while on holiday.
