    Hector S from Burbank, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Our family recently stayed at Hale Pohaku and it was a dream vacation! Waimanalo is a very quiet town with white sand beach (No Rocks, No Coral, No Currents, Small Waves, some Jelly Fish) and it was perfect to relax from sunrise to dusk. Hale Pohaku property was just as described, it was very clean and sizeable. The layout was great with spacious living room with big windows, all bedrooms have AC. the bathrooms, kitchen, laundry area were good, and for kids the WiFi worked just fine. The ocean view and having the beach just a few steps away was the highlight of every morning. The Property Manager and staff were very helpful (even brought us delicious bread pudding) and the caretakers that live on property were very nice.

      Thank you for your kind review. Glad to hear you enjoyed this part of the island. Waimanalo is definitely a special place in paradise. Please let us know the next time you are planning a trip to the islands - would love to have you back!

    a guest from South Amboy, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    It was arranged by my daughter and son-in-law for celebration of my 60th birthday. House was very spacious including bedrooms, living room, and kitchen, etc. It was pleasantly decorated with nicely bloomed orchids every room. Kitchen had all the gadgets and appliances that needed. But best of all is the view from living room and master bedroom. I wish I could've stayed for a month. :-)

    Samantha L from Port Melbourne, Victoria recommends this vacation rental

    Hale Pohaku is a beautiful home located right on the gorgeous Waimanalo beach, on the windward side of Oahau. We held our intimate wedding here and this home will always be special to us and we hope to return.

    The home has everything you can want for a perfect vacation and feels like the real Hawaii.

    Make sure you have a car to access the shops in nearby Kailua (great beach here as well).

    Please note some of the house is a bit weathered and some of the furnishings a bit worn (to be expected in an Oceanfront home) and the wifi was a bit slow but none of these things will stop you from having an amazing vacation here.

    Marie G recommends this vacation rental

    Our week on Oahu couldn't have been spent in a better place! If you're looking for a big city experience this is not the place for you!(Although Honolulu isn't too far). The location is peaceful and located on the most beautiful part of the island. The mountains on one side and the ocean on the other. The house is roomy, and fully stocked. Extra beach towels, boogie boards, sand toys for kids etc. Our son was married on the beach, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful beach. Only a few other people were in the area, and all were very respectful during the ceremony. (No photo bombing!) The property manager was helpful both as we prepared for the wedding and when we arrived. The caretakers who live on the property were friendly but not obtrusive. I hope that if I have a chance to return to Oahu that this beautiful home is available.

    Jill D from South Portland, ME recommends this vacation rental

    This house is heaven! If you are looking for a quiet private house with an amazing beach - this is your place. Nicely decorated, this historic house was the first house built in Waimanalo. It is built out of lava rock. It is close enough (rent a car) to some lovely hikes, surfing beaches, Hanauma Bay, Kailua, grocery stores.... But really way leave the house? The kitchen is stocked with every kind of cooking appliance so if you love to cook, which we did, you are set. I'd stay here again, in fact I'd love to live there! We are hoping to make it a yearly visit.

    it is beautiful location and great house with backyard beach access to the pristine Waimanola beach. We experienced an appliance failure during our rental but the management staff was helpful, communicative, and did right by us.

    If your looking for a charming house away from the big crowds but yet close enough to easily access them, this is a great house. It's a nice house on a beautiful beach. Another cool thing is that it's been featured in Hawaii Five-0 and we actually watched the show that featured the house while we were staying in the house.

    My wife and I recently booked Hale Pohaku in April 2013 for a week and we used it as the venue for our intimate beach wedding and reception. The home is wonderful and the location is perfect!! Both the property manager and the owner were very responsive to any of our questions and needs. We highly recommend this vacation home and can not wait to comeback and stay here again!!

    The location was wonderful, perfect for a wedding. The house had a lot of charm and character. The house has everything you would need to have a pleasant vacation, however, the house could have used a little more cleaning. All in all, great times and memories.

    a guest from Honolulu, HI recommends this vacation rental

    We had an amazing stay and absolutely loved Hale Pohaku. Our only complaint was that beds & pillows were a little outdated and hard/uncomfortable - something we quickly forgot about after getting up every morning to the beautiful view of the sunrise over this amazing beach. The house was very well stocked with everything you might need - kitchen items, towels, beach toys, etc. and the grounds were amazing. Very friendly caretakers as well. We certainly recommend Hale Pohaku and will definitely be back.

    a guest from Reno, Nevada recommends this vacation rental

    We had two couples and two toddlers at this property and had plenty of room. What a beautiful place. We didnt want to leave! Even when inside the house you feel as though you are right on the beach because there is so much light and all the windows on the east side. Having the sounds of the ocean and the ocean breezes lull us to sleep every night was amazing! The sand at the beach is the finest I have ever experienced-perfect for sand castles. And the heated outdoor shower station for cleaning up before coming back inside was fantastic. We absolutely loved our stay here!!!
