Allegro Party

A piece of paradise away from the crowds
★ ★ ★ ★
Most people traveling to Oahu sadly only think to stay in Waikiki which is beautiful if you like that kind of feeling. Having grown up on the island however, I always stay on the Windward side. With the H3 highway it is only 30 minutes from the airport. Kailua has definitely been discovered and is ridiculously crowded especially in the summer. Kaneohe where I spent my high school years is still a gem and this house is a diamond. It is conveniently located minutes from Safeway, Starbucks and the Windward mall that is home to one of the best farmers markets on the island. The house is well represented by the pictures and description. We were a family of 5 and it was extremely comfortable and well appointed. This property is maintained and managed by a management company and Laura could not have been more helpful. I called to tell her that everything was sticking to the pans and she had a beautiful non-stick skillet on my doorstep that day. Also, the toaster was only toasting on one side…same thing. New toaster that day. Unfortunately, we would not stay here again in the summer months as no matter what they say about Island Fan cooling systems and trade winds, the nights were unbearable and stifling as none of the bedrooms are situated in a way to take advantage of any breeze and they do not even have ceiling fans and the stand up fans provided were no help. My husband, who is a contractor was puzzled at why the owner would spend so much money to build such a beautiful house and then skimp on the cooling system. My daughter and I ended up sleeping in the living room on the couch as the breeze from the bay was nice and took advantage of the only ceiling fan. In all fairness most months other than summer, you may not need AC but the owner still should have it as an option especially at this price point. We have come a long way from the 1800’s which is the only time a ceiling fan is the least bit functional or romantic. We come to Oahu often and if the owner puts a few AC units in the bedrooms we would rent this place again in a heartbeat as the open floor plan is stunning. The house was also fully stocked with everything from brand new snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and towels, a cooler, umbrella, full spice selection in the kitchen as well as nice dishes and flatware. Lastly, if I had a rental property in Hawaii, I would hire this company to manage it as they were always available and responsive.

Charming and comfortable cottage
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Great 43 day stay in this lovely Hawaiian cottage. Location was perfect – right in the middle of popular surfer spot. We liked keeping the place open to observe all the action, but could close up for more privacy,quiet and air conditioning. Very clean, well furnished, comfortable beds,well-equipped kitchen. Management company professional and very easy to deal with.(thanks, Alorah) Five stars!

Pottier Party

Wonderful home in the ideal location
I can’t image a better location for a family vacation. The home is charming, well appointed and perfect for a family vacation. We rented stand up paddle boards and double kayaks for the week and had them delivered. The beach is very safe for kids with great snorkeling off the front of the house. The house is a short walk to a lovely restaurant (Buzz’s Steak House) and from shave ice (Island Snow) and the charming coffee/lunch spot. This is the definition of paradise! House has boogie boards, floats, snorkeling gear, beach towels, etc. There is a Whole Foods close by as well and a nice BBQ out back. We will come back for sure! It is worth it to stay on the beach.

Sword Party

Great winter stay at Naupaka Hale
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We stayed at Naupake Hale for 6 weeks and really enjoyed the house and Lanikai. Both were perfect for our group family of 4 with 2 young kids in the house; grandparents in the cottage. Listing info was accurate – in fact the photos don’t do justice to the incredible beach that the house is on. House was very clean and appropriately appointed eg not too cluttered nor too fussy – which was great with young kids!. It was nice to have the pool and lawns maintained weekly. Trinity Villa Rentals was very attentive to any minor issues that arose over our 6 week stay – Alorah made sure they were addressed promptly. I’d highly recommend this property specifically and Lanikai in general. Lanikai is a wonderful small residential community so there are no condos around. We had no idea how lovely Lanikai Beach was – perfect for young kids ours are 4 and 5, great for paddleboarding and snorkelling, very calm. Shops in Kailua are only about a 5 min drive away which was really convenient. We really enjoyed some of the local hikes on days when we wanted to get away from the beach. Honolulu was also great for some fabulous dinners. We rent vacation properties often and this was definitely one of our best experiences.

Ledermann Party

We loved this house!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This house was perfect! We stayed at the house for six weeks while working on a job, and we had our families come and visit. One side of the house had a master bedroom and another bedroom with twin beds, the living room and kitchen in the middle and the other side of the house had another bedroom with small kitchenette, so It was great to two families.The main kitchen was amazing and the best part was the pool. Even with the most beautiful beach a few steps away from us the kids still enjoyed the pool on a daily basis. Highly recommend this house.

Brown Party

Goldcoast Cottage
Location was great for activities. Easy access, parking not an issue with a small car. The house was very clean and had all of the amenities. Very nice. The property management company was very helpful and responsive.

Rutherford Party

Perfect for large groups
A fantastic property that works well for large families. The kitchen has plenty of space for groups to cook and has all the equipment. The dinner and living areas are a great size. Bathrooms and bedrooms were perfect and had lovely linens. The pool was amazing, out four you children loved playing in it. The front driveway was wonderful for the children to play on and the property being fully fenced reduced the stress levels of all the parents!

Lizabeth L.

Christmas in Paradise

Kundra Party

Most amazing experience imaginable. The villa far exceeded any expectations we ever could have dreamed of. Stunning stunning viltranquil views. trinity is the most thoughtful friendly real estate company You could ever imagine! Every request or need was viewed as important and handled.

Lang Party

Hale Hikina Nov 2016
Loved everything and every day we stayed. If the home doesn’t sell we’d love to do it again next year!

Liaw Party

Coconut Villa
2nd time renting this property and loved it again. Hope to be able to do so again soon!

Vitulano Party

Great large house for a big family. Perfect location near the most beautiful beach. 2 minute walk down the street. Nice pool and a bonus cottage on the property. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Regan made all the early helpful arrangements for us. Great location. We’ll go back for another family celebration.

Susan Jamison

WONDERFUL first trip to Hawaii – thank you Cottage at Lanikai!
You always wonder a little if the pictures you see when booking a rental will accurately reflect what you’ll see when you arrive. We were please to find that the awesome view and cute interior pictures were right on! Trinity Properties staff were wonderful to work with and very helpful. The cottage was wonderfully stocked with necessities as well as fun extras like sand toys for the kids, plenty of beach towels, a welcome basket and books & games (that we never had time to use because we were always at our beautiful beach). The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. The washer and dryer were so convenient. They are beginning to show some wear – mostly because they reside outside which is common – but worked fine. Last, but definitely not least, the location is out-of-this-world awesome. We absolutely LOVED our view and our immediate access to the beach.

Ramsey Alwin


Sandcastle in Kailua-

Fabulous location, fabulous house, and excellent customer service. We has a few minor items that needed to be addressed during out stay. The Trinity team was timely, professional and very responsive. I highly recommend Trinity and the Sandcastle property.

Weiner Party

Honu Heaven was exactly that. Heaven!

You simply can’t put into words how fantastic this place is. A wonderful beach house with privacy beyond belief. Should you be so inclined, you would never have to wear clothes. There will be no one — no one walking in front of the house. Ever.The pool is a sort of black bottom lava type pool that was solar heated between 87 and 94. Lanikai beach was exactly 221 steps from the door of the house and only about a 100 from the back steps. Lanikai beach is amazing. tremendous temperature, safe enough for the most timid, the interesting enough to snorkel the shallow coral canyons.The house is wonderful. with great couches, on the water with air conditioning in the bed-rooms should you need it. you shouldn’t there are fans everywhere.The kitchen is the perfect size. The kitchen knives were outstanding. the barbecue worked like a charm.The service was fantastic.Trinity bent over backward to make sure everything was perfect. this place is expensive. If you have the money, its worth it.There is an amazing outdoor shower with hot water. Need I say more?

Walker Party

Fantastic house with beautiful pool and landscaping in Kailua!

The Hale Mahina was a wonderful home to stay at while visiting Oahua. The location in Kailua is steps to the beach and the town has cute shops and restaurants. It is easy to access the entire island from this location and after a day at the beach, Honolulu or the North beaches, the swimming pool is a great place to land and relax! The landscaping is beautiful too! I would highly recommend this house to a large group and working with Trinity Villa Rentals made our trip hassle free!

Elizabeth Cohen

Hale Mahina-Kailua, HI
The rental home was fabulous!!! It couldn’t have worked out any better for our group of 10. We loved staying in the house, with all the bedrooms, bathrooms, wonderful kitchen, living & dining room and guest pool house. The pool was absolutely beautiful and with a short walk to the beach we had everything we wanted!The staff for Trinity Properties, especially Raegen and Alora were very professional and I would highly recommend your company to anyone looking for a rental property. Thank you for making our trip fantastic!

Great Family Getaway
The house, amenities and the environment far exceeded our expectations.We enjoyed the private yard, swimming pool and proximity to the was all the website promised and more! Perfect choice for a family vacation with ages ranging between 1 and 70. Dealing with Trinity Villa Rentals was easy and perfect. We highly recommend this location and would certainly go back.

Steve and Elizabeth C.

Would love to return to Diamond Head Dream!
This home was perfect for our family of 8. Claudia from Trinity greeted us with a Welcome Basket and lots of helpful info. We all loved the pool and local beach swims. The BBQ and outdoor seating was well used by us rather than eating out every night. The Whole Foods market at the Kahala Mall had great food- something to suit everyone. We taxied or took the hired motor bike into town when we wanted to be in the hustle of Waikiki otherwise chilled out at home. Beautiful decor and a spacious well appointed home.

John Geater

A wonderful family get together at Hale Mahina
My wife and I from New York and our family from Sydney Australia had a lovely family occasion together to celebrate my 80th birthday. The house exceeded our expectations and was a great place for the celebration. We liked the layout of the house, particularly the cottage in the grounds, which was ideal for my wife and I. The furnishings and equipment in the house are top of the line and the garden and the pool are ideal for a three generation group. Also, many thanks for the staff at Trinity for all their help.

Hale Mahina Review – Family Vacation
3 generations of family enjoyed this really well maintained home. Everything was super clean and in good order. The home is beautiful just as shown in the photos, and the yard is even bigger than expected. Lots of beach/pool gear available. Kitchen was well appointed, but could have been stocked with some more “basic” pantry items. We had a lovely time hanging out at the pool and walking to the nearby beach via the pedestrian path across the way. Excellent service from everyone at Trinity Vacation Rentals. We ventured all over the island with Kailua as our base. Very easy to get around from. The beaches were beautiful, although there were really strong tradewinds during our stay that brought some ManOWar jellyfish to shore that stung my nephew. We did a kayak tour with Kailua Beach Adventures that was excellent, as well as hiking, and snorkeling. The town has lots of restaurants and stores, though we did find it a little hard to find seating at some of the “highly recommended” places that would accommodate our larger family. But we did fine at the places we did dine at. The home was so nice, the only thing I noticed, was a bit of a lack of a “homey/cozy” touch, maybe some board games, etc would be nice touch. Overall, a great place. So nice to have a private place instead of a hotel.

Amazing Home & Trinity is Top Shelf
The pictures of this house do it little justice. This house is HUGE, has more there then is shown in pictures. They supply you with shampoo, conditioner, soap, all your basics. I found this to be great. There is a washer and dryer in master & on lower level. Lots of towels for in and outside and beach. Toys, floats and such. Ask to be shown how to use torches outside, where lights are and how all works in this house.The staff is more then amazing. All of them from Regan to Elizabeth to Eva & alorah are Top notch. I used the grocery service they offered online “Island Grocery” Michael not only got my order wrong and brought me wrong groceries, he forgot a whole page. Then he over charged me by $450.00 ( prob thought I would not notice) and no invoice. Eva got me refunded and said they will no longer use him. Be ware of Island grocery, not only not competent but, will rip you off. If you have any such issues, call Eva any of them will take care of the situation for you. The staff is AMAZING. The house is AMAZING. I will only use trinity for now on, for the way they serviced me before, during and after the vacation. My vacation would of been dreamy just being in this gorgeous house but these girls made the experience go to a whole new level of top shelf. You will love this house, this company and the whole staff. I got my deposit returned fast. Again, this is a dreamy gorgeous, HUGE Amazing house and I cannot say enough about the house, the company the staff or my stay. Thank you, trinity, Eva, Elizabeth, Regan whom I miss and of coasre Alorah! Amazing jus does not say enough. <3

Great Lanikai Vacation
We had a fabulous time in a terrific home in Lanikai. The house was beautifully fu ished and laid out. In fact, it was much better than I anticipated from the photos. I would definitely go back to that house and recommend it to friends. Two trivial comments – we LOVED that the house was completely stocked with necessities (paper towels, toilet paper, soaps, etc). We rent high end homes all the time and we usually get come products to get us “started” and then we have to buy more. Secondly, I do wish the house had beach chairs. We all wanted to sit on the sand and read and relax but didn’t have chairs. Lots of beach towels but sometimes we wanted to sit up and have back support. Thanks for everything. Our vacation was a success due to that house and Trinity Properties.

Incredible villa and perfect service whilst in Oahu
The house was incredible, with so many extras that weren’t showcased on the photos or described in the blurb. But more than that, the staff were impeccable. Arrival and departure were smooth, questions answered and services arranged with such helpful attention to detail, all within lightening fast speed.

Wonderful week at Song of Lanikai
We had a great time staying at Song of Lanikai for a week. The location is perfect, right on the beach. We rented a couple SUPs for the week, and paddled out to Mokulua islands, Flat island, and surrounding area. The team in Trinity provided wonderful services and tips for the island. The house is very clean and the beds are supper comfortable. We would love to come back next time.

Absolute Heaven
It was absolute heaven. Directly on the beautiful sandy beach with warm bathtub waters. We swam all day, every day. In a wonderful location. A very short drive to anything you’d want or need. The Times market in Kailua has really good, inexpensive Hawaiian dinners. The house was wonderful, very charming. We did have things break – door handles mainly as the house is older — but there was nothing serious or even inconvenient. The house was much too big for our party but it was wonderful to have the space. You can very easily and very comfortably sleep 8. Wonderful front yard. Wonderful backyard. And then there’s the beach. There is no AC but there was a wonderful breeze that flowed through the house every day/night but one or two out of our week stay. It didn’t bother us and we were staying during a heat wave and multiple thunderstorms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And the app made travelling to & checking in soooo easy. The bonus was the pair of wedge tailed shearwaters that seem to live in the bushes. Their cries startled us when we first heard them (they sound like people wailing!) but we looked forward to it once we realized what they were & missed it when they stopped.

Randal Arase

The property was more luxurious than expected. The bathrooms are outsanding.The condition of the property was clean and new.The appliances were in excellent condition. Each bathroom had plenty of towels and supplies.

Cathie Hogan

It was a wonderful family vacation in a home that had plenty of space for our entire family.

Kevin Roach

I have been to Many Beaches but never one as peaceful or beautiful as this…The morning sunrise with the twin Island peaks was amazing..The Trade winds and weather is the best I have ever had on the Islands..Going from the Beach to the Pool is something my Kids will ever was like a Resort on the beach with all the amenities and the Back house was perfect for my Mother-in Law…It was a Work Vacation with me having to drive to Honolulu a few times and I have to say the 30 minute drive was the most Beautiful commute I have ever had..Thank you and your staff for making this a perfect and very easy Vacation…Checking in and out was so easy and with everything you would ever need in a Rental…We did not need to bring anything to the house it had everything we needed even toys for the kids in the pool and for the beach…Just filled up the Frig and we were ready to go…All the best to you for the Holidays. We are thinking of our next vacation there soon.

Tracy Campbell

Everything was great and the location was incredible, thanks for everything.

Mary Miller

The house was more than what we could have ever asked for. Enough open space for everyone to spend time together Yet, enough rooms for everyone to have their privacy. If you are looking for a quiet get away on the beach this is the place! The staff was extremely helpful and professional. Kailua is a quiet town that is within 1/2 hour (depending on traffic) all the adventures and night life anyone is looking for. This property has something for everyone!

Todd Langer

Rented many beach houses on Oahu and this was the best, besides the house, tennis court, beach, pool, hot tub, the care taker of the property and trinity staff made our trip extra special

Bruce Smyk

The Hale Kea, a 4/5 BR directly on the beach in Lanikai. The rental was all they advertised and more. When they said “on the beach”, they didn’t exaggerate. It also has a palm tree that provides about the only shade on the whole beach. The house was charming, very well equipped, clean and well-maintained. The view was spectacular. Best – vacation – ever!!

Susan Sandler

We loved Honu Heaven, great location, comfortable house with good common areas and privacy as well. Furniture was very comfortable. Compared to other rentals, it really felt like the owners genuinely wanted us to be as comfortable as possible and provided anything we might need. Many thoughtful touches.

Bill Vermeer

The house was very clean, in a great location (walking distance to Paia) and overall had great features ( bedrooms size, two bathrooms , storage areas/closets ) . Our only complaints are no air conditioning in the 3rd bedroom and living area (kitchen , dining and living combined areas). The hosts were very attentive which led to an overall great lodging experience .

Marian Nelson

We were here for a family get together prior to my son’s wedding. We had a great time in this nice, very spacious, clean home. It was very inviting with the amenities including the clean swimming pool and well stocked large kitchen. We also appreciated the basket of fruit provided by the owner. Trinity management responded to our requests promptly.

Sue Tallman

The property was perfect if you have to be near Honolulu with its traffic and crowds. We were 3 couples staying for 8 nights and it was a great fit. The fourth bedroom would less equal so 4 couples would have been a squeeze. Each of us could do what activity we wanted during the day without needing a car – stay near the pool or go to the beach, snorkel or just walk all around. The views were incredible from almost every room. We had such fun watching activities on the ocean – sailing, surfers, long boarders, freighters and whales. The house was beautifully furnished, tastefully decorated and had wonderful artwork. We spent a lot of time on the patio/pool. The location was so great as we would drive further east around Diamond Head to get around more easily to grocery store and getting onto H1. We walked and biked (though the bikes were in sad shape)down to Waikiki or parked at Kapiolani Park and walked. There were beaches in each direction. We cooked dinner twice, had a private chef in for 60th birthday dinner and then ate at these great restaurants: Town, 12th Avenue Grill, Duke’s Waikiki. Had malasadas from Leonards (yum!) and went to the farmer’s market at Kapiolani Community College on Saturday. We toured Pearl Harbor, Doris Duke’s house, Honolulu Museum of Art and drove east to Kailua and west to Ko Molina. There were tons of places to hike too. We enjoyed Elizabeth and all her help during our stay – checking us in and answering questions during our stay. I would definitely love to stay at Wailele Villa again. Thank you!

Stephen Harris

Our family of 7 – aged 63 down to 2 – stayed for a week at Sandcastle and had a fantastic time from arrival to departure.The house is large, luxurious, very well appointed and very comfortable. Kailua Beach is quite beautiful and uncrowded, making long walks a joy.The position of the house right on the beach makes for a very special experience.When not swimming in the ocean (great for children as the waves were never more than small) the large pool at the rear of the property provided a different and very relaxing alternative, particularly with its lovely setting including a natural looking waterfall.Surfing was possible towards the southern end of the beach.Our request for an early check-in because of the time of a flight arrival was readily accommodated, with a very friendly and efficient Trinity Properties representative greeting us upon our arrival from the airport and then explaining to us the ins and outs of the property before handing over the keys. She then returned as we left in order to collect the keys and ensure all went well. When the desire to leave this paradise for the shops and restaurants of Honolulu struck us we were there after an easy 30 minutes drive, although the shopping and restaurant options close by proved to be fine. Likewise, the location was convenient to arrange a Pearl Harbour tour (a highlight), with collection and return to the house by our guide.The location is also well situated as a base from which to explore the rest of Oahu. All of this, together with a most perfect climate, made for a truly memorable holiday.Overall, this exceeded our expectations. We’ll be back!

Beverly Larson

We loved the Gold Coast HOME. The renovations are perfect. The decor is quaint. Love having 2 bathroom areas. The location is great. Just close enough to Waikiki. Walking distance to the Aquarium,Zoo,Diamondhead,and local eateries. We are members of the Elks so this location is perfect! The parking area is a little tight and sometimes we were a little blocked in. but overall even this was not a “problem.” Just so very nice. Loved it.

Jeffrey Brown

The beach is amazing . 3rd year in Kailua , love it. Big shout out yo Trinity, very professional and helpful beyond words. Looking forward to booking for next year. The house had everything we needed and more. Spices was an added bonus, BBQ worked great. Pool was fabulous, although spent most days on the beach, location, location. Thanks again for a fabulous stay.


Great property! 3rd time visitor and love it each and every time.

Ann Palmieri

My husband and I spent a week at the Cottage at Lanikai and loved every minute of this cottage right on one of the best beaches in the world. Everything needed was provided and the privacy and views were spectacular.

Ted Davis

Very pleased with our stay at Hale Mahina which fully met our expectations. The house is perfect for 10 people, – sunny, spacious, clean, uncluttered and well equipped – loved the pool and lanai. Convenient location to walk or drive to beaches (Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai beach are amazing), town and other parts of the island. Parking was so easy and convenient – two driveway gates made getting in and out easy and safe. We would absolutely stay here again. Importantly, the folks at Trinity Properties did an excellent job of communicating with us before the trip and checking us in and out – friendy, knowledgable, honest and professional! I rarely experience such good service – most property management companies are merely adequate if not apathetic – Trinity Properties was definitely above average in all aspects.

Sharon Chandler

This is a lovely home, but what sets this experience apart from others was the service provided by Trinity Properties. Mahalo.

Stephen Grossauer

We had a wonderful time, friendly neighbors, amazing view, new, beautiful and very clean property, perfect service from Trinity Properties. I would definitely recommend this.
