Hale Pohaku is not just a vacation home; it offers you the true Hawaiian experience. I believe Hale Pohaku was the first house built on Waimanalo Beach. There is a sense of timelessness here, and peace.
The view is extraordinary, the garden lush and the location ideal.
I loved the artwork and flowers throughout the house. Furnishings are comfortable. The house is very clean, and the appliances seem new. The beds are wonderful, with fine linens and good pillows. You will fall asleep with the sound of the surf, lulled by the breeze.
The property manager was very responsive to a few questions I had.
My only small quibble - the kitchen knives were not sharp.
I would love the stay here again the next time I visit Oahu.

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

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.

We had a marvelous week celebrating several family milestones. The house was amazing-the views and the breezes were breathtaking.

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.
We had a week at Hale Pohaku.
The place is a genuine 'old school' beach house.
Well set up. Great location. Right on the beach
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
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. :-)
