About Emmanuel Chen

I am a single father who found a way to spend alot of time with my son while making a living. I had no idea the two condos I had purchased before my son was born were zoned for vacation rentals. I believe we can make all the plans we want but the final outcome is up to God. I know many people may only visit Hawaii once in their lifetime and every minute of their time here is precious. I try to treat others as I would like to be treated.

I have gained some weight since that picture so I explain to people that I used to be a Chippendale's Dancer and now I am a Chips Ahoy Dancer! My son is a top student at the University of Hawaii and will be attending medical school when he graduates. He wants to be a top surgeon to help others....not for the moolah. In any of his endeavors he has tweaked a better way of doing things. If you stay here, thank you for helping to pay his tuition.

Emmanuel Chen purchased this condo in 1987

Why Emmanuel Chen chose Hauula

I am a realtor and brought my client to see this condo. The second I saw the ocean view I was in AWE. I told my client that if he didn't buy this place, I would. I am a man of my word but a lousy realtor. I bought more places than I sold my first year....just kidding.

What makes this condo unique

The screened-in patio is my favorite place to hang out. It feels like the whole beach belongs to you.

Great place right on the beach

My family loved staying here as we were able to enjoy the beach right outside our door. The condo was spacious and felt like home. Would definitely come back

This was a comfortable condo, clean, good location

  • 3 of 5

The condo was clean, the bed was very comfortable. Parking was a short walk out the door. No air conditioning was not a problem because of the location, the sun could never shine into the condo directly, and there are plenty of fans to move air.

At the time we were there (February 2018) there was renovation to the end building going on, which was right across the walkway from us. It could be very noisy during the day, however we were gone everyday for most of the day so it did not bother us that much. The work crew generally worked from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. except on week ends, don't know when they will be finished.

In addition to the work across the way the buildings patio area was being resurfaced so it could not be used all of the time we were there. It should be finished soon, they just needed to color the new surface to match the old when we left.

Once all the work is finished it should be a nice stay for other guests. It is very convenient to the Cultural Center, the north shore is a easy drive along with the Dole Pineapple farm. You don't have to drive through the heavy traffic of Honolulu to get to Pearl Harbor.

I would give this four stars if it wasn't for the construction.

Home away from home

Awesome condo close to North Shore. Very clean and comfortable condo away from tourist areas but close enough to enjoy them. Toured the entire island and was always home before 8. Would highly recommend if going to Oahu. Thanks

Great location and good people

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a house that was still in the process of being cleaned. We went ahead and did some groceries, and came back to a clean condo... Emmanuel and Kathe(the care taker) were very responsive and apologetic, and Kathe even left us a Christmas goodies basket for the faux pas upon arrival.

The condo is ideally located, and the screened in lanai is fantastic to watch the sunrise and enjoy a cup of coffee. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, and everything works. We did not need to turn on the multiple fans Emmanuel has provided, but opening the lanai door and the front door of the unit allows a steady cool breeze through the unit. The swim gear included multiple swim boards, flippers, snorkels and goggles. Emmanuel even has some beach toys for the little ones. There is a double bed and a pull out sofa, that was comfortable for a family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 kids, a teenager and 8 year old). The beach behind the condo is small, with a bit of a drop off created by the ocean tides, but it is safe and ideal for a relaxing swim. There are plenty of other beaches nearby, and the proximity to both groceries and the Polynesian Cultural Center is a big plus. We enjoyed the pastries at Teds Bakery as well as the delicious shrimp at Giovannis food truck, both of which are close by. The drive to Honolulu is less than an hour when you need to go into town for sightseeing. All in all, we couldn't be happier with our Hawaii vacation and we had a fantastic time over the Christmas break. Emmanuel and Kathe are good folks, and we highly recommend this unit.
