Discover one of Oahu's luxury vacation rentals with its gorgeous private pool terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Diamond Head, Aloha Nalu (meaning “warm, welcoming sea”) will surely sweep you into the spirit of aloha. The villa sits on the side of Koko Crater among the most elevated homes in the prestigious neighborhood of Portlock.

Inside this exceptional home, stunning views greet you at the front door and continually draw your eyes to the deep blues of the ocean. The one-of-a-kind villa features a modern open floor plan, sumptuous furnishings, and upscale finishes such as polished stone floors, white quartz countertops, and wood details throughout. With a well-appointed kitchen, additional drink refrigerator and bar, smart televisions in the living room and three of the bedrooms, wireless internet, and a selection of games, Aloha Nalu provides the perfect setting for a family or friends’ getaway. For extra comfort on warm Hawaiian days, the main living area and bedrooms are air conditioned.

Revel in elegant privacy in Aloha Nalu’s enormous primary suite, which comprises the entire second level and features sitting areas, a desk, and a large walk-in closet. Its expansive floor-to-ceiling windows showcase breathtaking views of the Pacific and Diamond Head during the day, and twinkling city lights at night. The spacious primary bathroom offers a steam shower and soaking tub in a relaxing spa-like atmosphere.

The backyard of Aloha Nalu also provides the ultimate vacation experience, with two outdoor sofa seating areas, lounge chairs by the pool, and a barbecue grill. The villa also supplies amenities such as boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, and a rolling ice chest. Other optional amenities include a private chef, personal concierge, and tour guides.

Aloha Nalu is centrally located in south Oahu in the desirable Hawaii Kai area, close to several beautiful access points. Our favorite nearby beaches include Haunama Bay (a world-famous snorkeling spot), Waimanalo Beach, and Portlock Beach. Fifteen- to 20-minute drives from the villa take guests to dining and shopping options in trendy Kaimuki Town, Kailua Town, downtown Honolulu, and Waikiki (where Ala Moana Center is located). Even closer to home, guests will find the Hawaii Kai Golf Course, marina-front restaurants, water sports, movie theaters, grocery stores, and a fitness center.

My family stayed here as we have extended family right down the street and wanted to visit after being away for 2 years. It was perfect! The house was super clean and very comfortable! Everything we needed was there- beach chairs, towels - everything. The best part of the house was the lanai and views. We saw whales and perfect sunsets everyday! Mahalo 🎉

My husband and I and our two adult sons and daughter-in-laws stayed here for 2 weeks, and it was not long enough! The home has everything, from a beautiful, cooking-friendly kitchen and dining room table for eight, to comfy beds in every bedroom and a master upstairs suite to die for. Location is great for Koko Head hikes and Hanauma Bay exploration. Safeway grocery store is 5 minutes away by car, and Kona Brewing on the bayside has a nice outside deck for lunch. Honolulu's hustle and bustle is nicely distanced from this quiet and peaceful neighborhood but only a quick 20 minute ride away by car if you want it. And oh the views! Both the backyard poolside area and the upstairs master suite have breath-taking views of Diamond Head and the Waikiki shoreline. But even the dining room and downstairs King bedroom have lovely views of Maunalua Bay. Your sunset glass of wine or your first morning cup of coffee will never have tasted better! We hated to leave - we will definitely rent this fabulous home again.

The home and property manager were amazing! The property manager was particularly wonderful… available for all questions and solved any issue we had while in the home. This property has beautiful views of the ocean. We wished the pool would have been heated, but that was minor… we just waited until it warmed up in the afternoon.

We found Aliha Nalu to be mesmerizing from day 1. Waking up to the view from the master suite every morning was like an infusion of Hawaiian serenity and joy before you even roam downstairs to your morning cup of coffee. Relaxing on the pool deck with the same view to wade into the morning's activities and ending the day with the glorious sunsets over Maunalua Bay with Diamond Head and the lights of Honolulu in the distance will be seared into our memories forever. Our stay on Koko Head was nothing short of life-changing.

The breathtaking panorama of the ocean and the diamond head was just in front of us as soon as we walked in. The views were amazing and have different faces from morning to night. The sunset was so gorgeous I can never forget. The house was equipped for precisely what the families needed. Shopping for babies and kids were so convenient, just 10 minuets away with a taxi ride. The pool and the large yard spaces let us enjoy barbecues for lunch, and wine for the evening. Only regret was that we should have booked the place for longer! We are already discussing to come back here again for the spring next year. Cannot wait!

Our family stayed at Aloha Nalu with two other families, including 2 small kids, and it turned out just a few days of staying here was not enough at all. The place came with everything that you need to enjoy vacation upon arrival. Not to mention the house was very clean and well maintained, it had all the amenities and equipment that we'd want. Each bedroom came with separate bathroom and three families could comfortably stay . We also loved a selection of interior and arts around the house, which made our stay even more comfortable one. Highly recommended for a family with kids, as it is located in a very quiet neighborhood of Hawaii Kai . The house had a more than enough space for small kids to run around! Perfect rental choices for kids, from bed, chair to pool accessories. The views were amazing both day and night. We loved a time chilling out at pool, seeing a sunset over Diamond Head. BBQ in the front yard was also a great way of enjoying an Hawaiian evening. Whenever we wanted , there was Uber available in the area within 5-10 minutes waiting, so we had no hard time getting to WIKIKI or other places on island. We definitely recommend Aloha Nalu to everyone coming to Hawaii. Already looking forward to coming back for another stay.

First thing you see when you walk in the VIEW, which is just spectacular! We were about a 5-7 minute drive from shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, and COSTCO. This definitely felt more like a vacation being away from Waikiki but still a short 25 minute drive to get there. If you are looking for new, modern, luxury with amazing views and privacy, I would highly recommend this house! I will be back hopefully sooner rather than later...

My husband and I and his brother's family (2 toddlers and 1 infant in total) stayed for 1 week and we had an amazing time. The house is brand new and absolutely beautiful with amazing views. It is less than a 20-30 minute drive to Waikiki and the amazing Lanakai beach. It is also a quick 5-10 minute drive to Starbucks, Walgreens, and Safeway. We also really enjoyed the close by cliff jumping. We had an amazing time and I definitely recommending renting this home. It does not have the following items which, we missed including: a nespresso or some other coffee machine, heated pool, hot tub (gets cold at night), spice rack (expensive having to buy simple spices for 1 time use), cheese grader, and garlic press. We also noticed the place ran out of hot water in showers if more than 1 person was showering or consecutive showers were occurring. Added bonus to our surprise was access to coolers, umbrellas, beach towels, snorkel gear, and flotation devices. Chelsey the manager who was present at check-in and available during the week was excellent and she made or stay pleasant. I would not hesitate renting this home. A nice change compared to staying on Waikiki.

This place comes with the great view of the Diamond Head and ocean with privacy. The house is clean and the service is excellent. I will definitely come back again, but with larger group of people. Highly recommended!

I couldn't believe my eyes as I looked out to the breathtaking views at the property. It has many amenities including a pool that overlooks Diamond Head. Gorgeous rooms are decorated with a modern Hawaiian theme. And not to mention, the master room which has a wide open view to wake up to.
