Charles C. Frost purchased this house in 2006
The first time I came to Honolulu I couldn't take my eyes off those houses on the ridges overlooking the Freeway. Dazzled by the views of the ocean and of Diamond Head from every direction, I couldn't help thinking, 'What must the view be like from up there?' Three years later the contractor who implemented my son's renovation plan for this house exclaimed about its 'billion-dollar view.' Today, cooled by the refreshing tradewinds, my husband and I study, cook, hike, swim and entertain, enjoying that view from every room, from the lanais and from the pool. Our guests who come to 'do Hawaii' often find that this designer-renovated house is itself a destination.
Relax in spacious, comfortable surroundings open to a breathtaking view of sea, sky and Hawaii's iconic Diamond Head. Enjoy the green below you as you view the lushly landscaped Waialae Country Club golf course lined with strands of coconut palm, monkey pod and kiawe trees. Watch the tropicbirds and egrets soaring by. And, of course, the ships crossing Maunalua Bay. Truly refreshing!
It is extremely easy to write a rave review about the accommodations afforded by this vacation home. The views are spectacular of the ocean as well as the lush vegetation of the golf course and surrounding areas. Diamond Head is a view by itself, and a recommended activity is to climb to the top for a more amazing view. There were five in our party, and the rooms with the lanais were very quiet and restful. Downtown Honolulu, golf course, beaches, and sightseeing are readily available. We would love to own this home and stay year-round.
Perfect location for traveling and easy access to major highway. Accommodations fit our family very well. Poolside was warm when the beaches were not. Thanks to Charlie and Janice for making our stay so memorable.
The home being built on a mountain, provided many new and fun experiences. There are three levels to this home, each has a washroom and spacious Hawaiian comfort. A pool on the bottom floor was essential as there is no air conditioning, but this still proved to be a fun and excellent way to cool off from the sun. The photos are accurate, it was a cleanly home and the ambiance you get from being in the home is very pleasant.
Location wise, you're a 5 minute drive from Kahala mall and another 10 minutes from there to get to Diamond Head volcano. The H1 highway is just before the mall, so going anywhere such as Hanauma bay or Waikiki is a breeze. Speaking of which, that's another pro to being a mountain, you get more of a breeze but never in our four week stay was it ever windy. Also if you're looking to go for walks, going on a morning or evening walk on this mountain is great exercise.
Above all else, the view was magnificent, photos don't do any justice to the paradise feel that you receive. It's a dream to walk out on the balcony and soak it all in!
Lastly the owners were welcoming, kind and helpful which is also why there is no trouble recommending this home to anyone else.
Our family of 5 adults and 3 children loved the accomodations from the clean well appointed main house with its fully equipped remodelled kitchen to comfortable living room, spacious mastersuite with amazing views from the jet tub, perfect family friendly pool house and of course private swimming pool. The breathtaking views of the ocean and Diamond Head can be seen from every where as you are high up in the hills overlooking Maunalua Bay. The photo's were a perfect representation of the house so there were no surprises when we arrived. I don't think there was a thing missing from the home or the pool house, we even had a BBQ which was great. The homes location is perfect for sightseeing and relaxation, you are a quick 6 minute drive to Waikiki, close to amazing beaches, groceries, shopping and restaurants. We loved the residential location as you were able to enjoy a quiet evening on the lanai after a full day of touring or swimming without the craziness that can come with busy Waikiki.
Charlie and Janice are two of the nicest people we have ever met, they were gracious hosts and we felt lucky to get to meet them. Charlie responded very quickly to any and all questions I had and really made us feel at ease prior to arriving. We would definitely recommend this property to families looking for the perfect "home base" or couples wanting to sightsee during the day but then have the calm serenity of the oceans and mountain views in the evening. Since the house is built on a hill, I would not recommend the property if you have mobility issues or trouble with many stairs (there are 64 from the pool to the top level) - but for us this was the perfect amount of exercise to warrant all the extra eating we did:) We can't wait to return!
There were 8 of us and the accomodations fit us perfectly. The location was great. Just minutes from Waikiki, east side activities close by, and it was easy to get to the windward side over the Pali Highway. We certainly enjoyed the pool and the pool house is so nice. There are a lot of steps since this house is on the hillside. So good knees are in order! We loved sitting on the lanai with its beautiful view of Diamond Head and the ocean. You may want to bring a hairdryer since we could not find one in the house. There were beach chairs, beach toys, noodles, and mats. A good time was had by all!
We are a group of seven adults from Boston who just finished a one-week stay at the property. The home is very spacious, with plenty of locations (lanai, dining room, pool area) to sit together for dinner or drinks, but also has plenty of room to find space for a nap or some quiet time. The view is spectacular! The property is just far enough from Honolulu that you do not feel you are in the city and can enjoy the sounds of birds and island breezes, while Waikiki and excellent beaches like Hanuma Bay and Lanikai are less than a 1/2 hour away. The kitchen is well-appointed and perfect for cooking for a larger group. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. The pool house is also very spacious and allows for a great area to enjoy in the evening without disturbing the neighbors. The owner is very responsive to questions and flexible with check-in and check-out times. We highly recommend this property for a group or family trip.
I've stayed here twice and loved both times. It is a beautiful home and perfectly located. You are close enough to get to Waikiki nightlife in minutes, but just far away enough to enjoy the peace of the beautiful setting. I've slept in the pool house and the main house and both are terrific. The pool house is quite large and slept our four person family easily. The photos show you the lovely decorating and great view. I wish I was having breakfast looking onto the ocean right now!
I love to walk and find that the area around Diamond Head offers everything from an easy stroll to a challenging ocean side walk to, of course, the climb up the volcano itself! My husband is a surfer and was thrilled that the house was so close not only to the ocean but also major roadways so we could easily explore this amazing island.
The owners are very helpful and I would recommend the property to all my friends - I already have! We'll be back soon!
