Overview

Honolulu House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-16)

This Hawaiiana designed home sits at the end of Koko Head and looks directly across Maunalua Bay at Diamond Head and Kahala. This neighborhood is known for its beautiful private homes, open ocean views (great for whale watching in the winter months),ocean access through city and county maintained regional grounds, as well as, great fishing off the rocky cliffs and reefs. This large, 3000-square-foot home is located on a half acre and tropically landscaped. The house is fully furnished as the owner lives there part of the year. All amenities are included.

Perfect for Weddings up to 35 guests, with the wide open layout and plenty of room in the yard, both the pool side lanai between the hot tub and lanai and the Diamond Head yard with great views from the grass.

We are in Hawaii Kai just a little over a mile from Koko Marina and Hanauma Bay. We are 20 minutes from Waikiki and about 30 minutes from the airport. The Koko Marina Shopping Center has an Eight-Plex Movie Theatre with Stadium Seating, Blockbuster Movie Rental, Foodland Grocery Store, Starbucks, Subway, 24 Hour Fitness, as well as, a number of other restaurants and shops. Just a mile across the bay there are several other familiar stores; Costco, Safeway, City Mill Hardware, McDonalds, Longs and Ross, just to mention a few.

Water is everywhere...hot tub and pool in the back yard or just step across the street onto the ocean cliffs. One block down the street, sit on a private sandy beach.

The master bedroom is just inside the entrance and has a king size bed,a large double wardrobe and private bathroom. Both of the other bedrooms have queen beds and they share one full and one half bathrooms at the rear of the house. We also have a king size 'Pune'e', a full size convertible futon, a twin roll away, three folding futons and an inflatable mattress. We have individual room air conditioners in the bedrooms for personal preferences.

The kitchen is in the middle of the house and has ocean view from the sink. The GRAND VIEW is from the living area which is a large hexagon with vaulted ceiling, large fan and three sets of twelve foot sliding glass windows facing the ocean.

We have four televisions and several VCRs plus two DVD players. There are games for the whole family: cribbage, dominos, Yatzee, Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit and others. We have lots of room for a fun game of croquet in the large grass front yard.

About Edgar Miner

Aloha! Lynn and I purchased Hale Hawaii Kai in June of 2005. I had rented the house since March of 2000. I started the gardening immediately and once I purchased the house put the lanscaping in HIGH GEAR. We also added a pool. I have photos of Lynn on the excavator digging the pool...she is good! We renovated the entire property inside and out: paint, cabinets, eaves, bathrooms and wardrobes. This property is the LOVE OF MY LIFE, next to Lynn! We enjoy our guests' holidays almost as much as they do. We enjoy taking them surfing, kayaking and hiking.

Edgar Miner purchased this house in 2005

Why Edgar Miner chose Honolulu

I have a very flexible schedule which allows me to manage the vacation rental, I have traveled extensively and enjoying meeting people from around the world. When guests have an interest I take them sight seeing or shopping around the island.

What makes this house unique

Besides being a beautiful place to have a wedding or reception, this property is ideally located, close to Waikiki but not in the busy downtown area. We have incredible views, warm water, restaurants and activities close at hand. Famous Hanauma Bay is just 2 minutes away. There are beautiful cliffs to climb and great surf just 1 minute from the front door! Walking in the neighborhood you will see some of the most beautiful homes on the island.

What a paradise... Better than the photos!!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from this trip. Stayed there for 5 nights, wishing we could have stayed longer...

The view from the living room and the garden, is breathtaking!! The reason I am rating "Accuracy of Photos" as 3 star, is because the actual house and the view is SO MUCH BETTER than the photos!! When I arrived, I was really amazed. So was my family. They could not stop screaming how nice it is...

The owner, Edgar, is REALLY friendly and helpfull. He has a place right nexr door and helps any needs.

The location is such a wealthy estate area. Very quiet, safe, peacefull, not touristy. You can get a real hawaiian experience. Great beaches nearby. It is a little far (although it takes only 20 min so not so bad) to go to all the Waikiki & AlaMoana shopping, so if you want those every day, it may not be the place. (but we drove down there many times, driving there is still so nice because you get such great views on the way (marina, mountains, the sky), I did not mind driving there and enjoyed it every time)

We would love to come back. They are planning to build a swimming pool in the backyard. Looked like it can happen soon!(as of Nov/2006)

Thank you Edgar!

Amazing! You will love your stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our vacation and stayed here for 6 days. It was even better than what we expected, and the pictures don't do the place justice! We were in a group of 6 and we had lots of space that didn't feel crowded (hard to come by with that big of a group!). Great location, still close to the city (about 20-30 minutes) but far enough to have plenty of privacy. Also, the China Walls were within walking distance (one of our favorite spots during our time in HI). Edgar had amazing communication and was a very happy, easy-going guy who was pleasant doing business with. Highly recommended!!! Thanks again, Edgar! :)

Owner's Response: Mahalo, It is impossible not to have a great time with guests like you! You kept so busy but I really enjoyed the times we spent together. I am glad you went and played the Ko'olau Golf Course...like I said it is The Most Beautiful and The Most Difficult Course in Hawaii. Have a great spring and hope to see you when you 'tie the knot'. Warm Aloha, Edgar

We want to come back......

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 stayed last December and had the time of our life. We are already totally in love with Hawaii but staying here and having Edgar to guide us made it all the more special. The house was perfect for kids and teenagers alike and the location is brilliant. We are all trying to figure out when we can get back.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family from Manitoba, Canada spent a memorable 10 days in Edgar's home in April 2014. Our family consisted of infants, teenagers, young married couples and grandparents.

We enjoyed the pool and hot tub daily and access to beaches was minutes away. We were able to relax like one would in your own home. Edgar was always willing to answer any questions and we enjoyed learning about everyday life in Hawaii from him. The property was clean and Edgar was in the process of doing some maintenance like painting etc. We enjoyed our stay and felt very safe there which was important with our infant grandchildren. We hope to go back someday.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words, it was such a pleasure having your family stay with us. You are truly blessed by surrounding yourselves with so much love. I would love to have you back again and will make time to take you surfing in Waikiki...I promise! Take care and stay warm up there! Warm Aloha, Edgar

KoKo Head/Hawaii Kai

  • 4 of 5

such a warm, welcome home this is.

my 8 friends and I stayed, recently, for my 50th birthday. the house is open and inviting. not too formal. pool, hot tub and loads of entertaining areas. no view of a neighboring house (though, that makes you feel a bit like giggling into the wee hours is ok).

the location was PERFECT for everything! Costco, and other markets, to stock up. Hanauma Bay is practically walking distance. Kailua is so close, then continue your drive up windward side to North Beach. and, of course, Waikiki is just a short drive. heck, you can take the bus!

Edgar is on the property and can offer any help you need. we borrowed boogie boards etc. he even decorated for my birthday :-)

if you're dog friendly, Hana will come over for a swim when supervision is available. such a sweet girl.

we kept all the doors open and insects were a minimum.

I would/will rent this property again.

thanks you Edgar & Lynn :-)
