    a guest from Hanford, CA recommends this vacation rental

    On our eighth trip to Hawaii, this was our favorite house so far! The home itself is clean and well-appointed, featuring modern amenities but also a nod to its history with pieces of local art throughout. Our party of seven all loved the house, it's location, the terrific beach just steps away, and especially THAT VIEW from the huge living room picture window. Sunrises are amazing and our daily early-morning routine of "watching the ocean wake up" is something we miss already.

    From the beginning, when Jeremy sent us a pdf of all the details we'd need or want, then met us at the home and showed us around on arrival, we were impressed with the preparation and professionalism of our hosts. Everything was as advertised or better, and our stay, despite three days of overcast, rainy weather, exceeded our expectations.

    It was so nice just to bask in the quiet of Waimanalo. The nearly-deserted beach, which is the best one we've been to on Oahu, is just beautiful, and the waves are just right for boogie boarding or swimming/playing out past the surfline. We felt safe in the water throughout, although on the windy, rainy days when the surf was higher and pretty rough, we obeyed the posted warnings and stayed out of the water.

    We loved the location as well. For food, there are two excellent places to eat an easy block walk away. We walked down and got takeout several times during the trip and were seriously spoiled by the fish tacos, garlic shrimp (some of the best we've had on the island), garlic fries, fresh kahlua pig sandwiches, and even shaved ice that was a quick and easy walk away. Also, location-wise, we were 5 minutes from Kaihlua, about 15 minutes from Hunauma Bay and about 20 from Honolulu. One morning we went ziplining at Keanu Farms on the North Shore (highly recommended - the most fun we had on the trip!) - which is about 75 minutes away, so everything's pretty close.

    All in all, we had a terrific week at Hale Pohaku in Waiman

    Well what can I say about this place other than we really enjoyed it. This is a historic home but it does have AC in the bedrooms and is very cool through the rest of the house. The views of the beach and the beach itself were perfect very peaceful and uncrowded great for playing in the ocean and a white sandy beach. I would stay here again

    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.

    • Manager Responded on 8/2/2017

      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!

    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.

    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.

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!!

    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.

    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!!!
