The Oceanfront Oasis was just amazing. It has the most beautiful views of Koko Head and the ocean, and the estate itself is gorgeous. Liz Taylor vacationed here, and Janet Jackson and George Clooney have parties here, so it's definitely exciting and fit for celebrities. I felt like one having my wedding here! The service was exceptional; Justin ensured that I had everything I wanted, even though my getaway was somewhat unconventional (my husband and I escaped in a kayak!). I just couldn't believe the price, either, I had expected much more. I'm so glad I had my wedding here.

Imagine our shock and dismay when we learned Kathy Ireland Weddings Oasis World Estates abruptly cancelled our wedding venue without notice or good cause 45 days before our wedding day.
"I regret to inform you that we are going to have to cancel your wedding on May 26th due to unfortunate circumstances," read the April 3, 2013 email from a Kathy Ireland assistant. The same folks had collected our $2543.38 wedding venue deposit a year prior on June 18, 2012.
Once Oceanfront Oasis Estate was confirmed as our wedding venue, we featured it on our wedding website and more importantly we embossed the address on our custom made, handcrafted letterpress invitations, which shipped to all family and guests worldwide. We eventually had to reprint the invitations rush order. Why didn’t Kathy Ireland and company give us fair warning that our wedding venue could be cancelled at any time because their wedding business wasn’t in compliance with the City & County of Honolulu?
Come to find out, the City & County of Honolulu Dept. of Planning and Permitting issued her property a Notice of Violation because its coordination of weddings & other social events does not meet residential zoning district and home occupation use standards.
Based upon our personal experience, we believe Kathy Ireland Weddings is the antithesis of her trademark "finding solutions for people in love." She threw us a curve ball 45 days in advance of our wedding day, and to date has not responded to my letter with an apology. In sum, Kathy Ireland Weddings either knew or should have known that it has been in violation since 2011 and the right thing to do would have been to notify the dozens of couples they displaced. If Kathy Ireland and her assistants can't manage a wedding business or property in Hawaii, then they shouldn't put their name on title.
A striking, mid-century, 3-bedroom, 3-bath, walled and gated beachfront property. Extreme privacy and beach access, indoor private mosaic-tiled swimming pool and jacuzzi set in the ocean. The unique features of this home made it the personal property of Kelly Preston & John Travolta.
