Welcome to laid back Hawaiian style living! Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, this charming Hawaiian style bungalow home sleeps 7-8 in 3 Bedroom / 2 Bath with detached 1 bedroom/bath.

Nestled in the privacy of Kahala on the South Shore of Oahu, Honolulu, Hawaii the home is just a 2 minute walk to stunning Kahala beach (see website), a 5 minute drive to Waikiki, shopping, spa, golf, optimal south island surf spots, and is situated along one of the best running/biking routes on the island. As guests enter the property, they are greeted by the façade of true old Hawaii charm with the famous “Dickey style high pitched roof” and charming architecture indicative of the elite beach bungalows of the 1920’s. The sprawling front lawn is perfect for children’s play, and visitors enter the home through an expansive living room space that leads the eye directly outdoors- to an inviting covered lanai and crystal clear pool and spa.

The house is built on 1 level. Tasteful art and décor, and Persian rugs cover the parquet floors, providing a clean and elegant feel.

The patio and backyard is a perfect paradise hideaway for private entertaining with covered lanai, large organically shaped turquoise pool, hot tub, gas powered tiki torches, surrounding palms, and tropical flowers.

Best choice in accomodations

This was the best choice of accomodations we could have made. Spacious and clean, a nice little care package when we arrived, and a contact person to deal with anything that came up. The best part of this property is the lanai and the pool....absolutely beautiful! We lived in that pool and on the deck any time we were 'home'. There were six kids with us (ages 12 - 16) and they were never bored when we were at this property, because they were either in the pool or catching lizards! There were NO BUGS IN THIS HOUSE!!!! I couldn't believe it...that was huge for me!

There is a washer and dryer which was very handy, and the house is fully stocked and didn't leave us needing anything. There is no A/C in the main part of the house which I was initially concerned about, but didn't find it a problem. Ideally I would have preferred if we could have lowered the temp in the living room, but with the A/C in the bedrooms it was fine for sleeping. There is one bedroom without A/C and no one wanted to sleep there!

I truly had no complaints about my stay. Such a quaint home with a completely private yard - who could complain? There is not a sandy beach nearby, but that didn't bother us at all. I would highly recommend this property.

Unique Cozy Home in Beautiful Kahala!

This was our first time using a vacation rental vs. traditional hotel. It is now our favorite way to vacation with family! This home felt like a home away from home. We were able to eat breakfast at home every morning--enough plates, cups, pots to cook for a family of 8. The barbeque outdoor area is amazing--had numerous BBQs after busy days of running around. The home is centrally located and is an easy drive into Waikiki, walk to Diamond Head, and so convenient to Kahala Mall. Just down the street is the Kahala Resort--beautiful for an evening cocktail or breakfast brunch. Highly recommend!

Located on the south shore of Honolulu, the world-famous neighborhood of Waikiki was once a playground for Hawaiian royalty. Known in Hawaiian as 'spouting waters,' Waikiki was introduced to the world when its first hotel, the Moana Surfrider, was built on its shores in 1901. Today, Waikiki is Oahu’s main hotel and resort area and a vibrant gathering place for visitors from around the world. Along the main strip of Kalakaua Avenue you'll find world-class shopping, dining, entertainment, activities and resorts.

Waikiki is most famous for its beaches and every room is just two or three blocks away from the sea. With Leahi (Diamond Head) as your backdrop, the calm waters of Waikiki are perfect for a surfing lesson. In fact, legendary Hawaiian waterman Duke Kahanamoku grew up surfing the waves of Waikiki. This Olympic gold medalist in swimming actually taught visitors how to surf at the turn of the century and was later known as “The father of modern surfing.” Today, the Waikiki Beach Boys perpetuate Duke’s legacy by teaching visitors how to surf and canoe and the Duke Kahanamoku Statue has become an iconic symbol of Waikiki.

But there’s more to Waikiki than just the beach. Attractions of Waikiki like the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium offer fun for the whole family. You can learn about the history of Waikiki by reading the surfboard markers along the Waikiki Historical Trail. Among the various things to do, fantastic shopping and dining can be found all along Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues and at gathering places like the Royal Hawaiian Center and the Waikiki Beach Walk. And the fun keeps going long after the Waikiki sunset with amazing nightlife and live music.

Best of all, Waikiki is within a half hour of a variety of Oahu attractions, including Pearl Harbor, Iolani Palace, the Nuuanu Pali Lookout and Hanauma Bay. Other notable points of interest nearby include Ala Moana Center, the local neighborhood of Kapahulu and the arts district of Chinatown.

From Hawaiian royalty to Hawaii Regional Cuisine, Waikiki continues to be an evolving expression of the ancient spirit of aloha. On these famous shores, the past and the future are uniting in fresh and surprising ways.

Honolulu is Hawaii's largest and most bustling city and is packed with sights, activities, tourist attractions and a fair amount of history. The beaches around Honolulu are exquisite and include the world famous Waikiki Beach.

There are also plenty of other tourist attractions to explore, such as historical Chinatown, with its numerous restaurants and medicine shops. Shopping is also a pastime in Honolulu and you are spoiled for choice with the likes of the Aloha Tower Marketplace complex and Ala Moana Shopping Center.
