Honestly we were so blessed by this amazing home and location. The size was perfect for our family (2 bedrooms and the Ohana was perfect along with the powder bath). From the moment we walked into this magical home we were amazing by the cleanliness, quality of finishes, and overall the amenities and location. The pool and ocean view was perfect. Coffee with the sunrise and dinner at sunset was magical. The location being just outside the city was perfect. We didn't want to be in the heart of all the action but loved the walkability (only 20 mins) to shops and coffee and dinner. The short walk up Diamond Head to the light house for the sunrise was epic and a highlight each day. The beach access just a few houses down the street was amazing. We loved the local beach and slow vibes. We stayed here for the Marathon and loved the location. It was so easy and really fun to watch the racers go by when we finished. The property managers were very attentive and the owner was great about replacing a few things that naturally broke when we were there (umbrella broke and a new showed up hours later). This is a 5 Star home and location. Thanks for allowing us to stay their!!!!

Had a great time at Hale Makai. Having the concierge service to contact with any issues was a great bonus. The views are stunning, the pool is a great alternative as you can't swim right out front. Easy walk to many places such as parks or down to Waikiki. We hosted a family gathering for my extended family from Australia one evening and booked the Private Chefs on offer for the night. It was brilliant! To bring family together in such a great setting was the perfect end to our family reunion.

Our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed this home for 5 nights. The house is beautifully kept and had many extras that most others don’t such as beach chairs, a wagon, bikes, sunscreens, towels, all the little things. We enjoyed early morning coffee sitting at the stone wall watching the waves crash over the reefs. So thankful we got a chance to stay here for part of our visit.

The home is stunning, but don't rent it unless they replace the cheap frig., stove and bikes--with quality items. I bought a bunch or groceries and they froze the first day. Someone was sent to fix the frig, but it wasn't fixed and our food stayed frozen the entire week. Instead of relaxing I spent hours everyday picking up food. I spent at least 4 hours every day trying to find parking and waiting in lines to get food instead of relaxing. Instead of walking on the beach watching the sun rise every morning--I was fighting traffic and waiting in lines. This was the most hectic vacation I've ever had and I paid a high price for luxury. And... I had to pick up my kids miles away after the old bike tires kept going flat.

We loved everything about our stay here. The home itself is beautiful and the location is great. It’s close enough to the action but far enough away to have some privacy. It was nice to have access to beach gear and toys as well as bikes. We enjoyed hanging out at the pool and sitting in the backyard listening to the crashing waves and watching sunsets. Checking in and out was super easy and we had no issues, everything was great. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property!

Our stay was phenomenal. The property was beautiful, clean and everything that we hoped for. The location was ideal. The beach was just a few houses down with easy access through the gated walkway, restaurants, grocery and shopping was only a few minutes away. There was plenty of space for all 7 of us and every bedroom had it's own bath!!! Would definitely want to stay here again.

We had a wonderful stay here! The host was always available for questions and helpful information. The home was very clean and very well equipped. Beds were super comfy and there was lots of room for the six of us to be together or have some privacy, which ever anyone wanted. Pool was lovely as well as the backyard. Spent many hours gazing out at the gorgeous ocean. The waves breaking along the wall was dramatic and spectacular. Enjoyed each and every sunset! Great place. Great neighborhood. Close enough to walk into Waikiki but far enough out of town that it was peaceful 11 out of 10 would recommend :)

There are so many wonderful things I could write about. The property management company and property manager for the house were helpful, very responsive and easy to reach any time we had questions from the moment we booked to the day we checked out. The house itself is clean, comfortable, and fully stocked to make staying a week or more with our family (incl 2 year old) easy. And the view off the grass is breathtaking. Equally amazing was the pool which we used multiple times a day. Highly recommend!

Our experience was wonderful for our first visit to the island. The home was fully stocked, beautiful and the right size for a family of 6. We enjoyed being right off the beach and the pool was perfect for the kiddos. Property manager was also amazing and made everything very seamless. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this location to other family and friends.

House is cleaned and fully stocked with everything we needed. The views and location are just amazing!! We were close to shops, restaurants and activities that we couldn’t do all we wanted. Will definitely come back!

This was a really great rental and made for a wonderful beach vacation. The house was clean, well maintained, and well stocked. Great for families that want to be at the beach but also need to stay close to the base for little ones. Would happily stay again!
