Great location, spacious & clean

  • 5 of 5

We arranged a family reunion consisting of 8 couples, our age ranging in our 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s. There is a den off of the living room with a bed & bath, where my parents could sleep on the main floor. The rest of us were spread out among the 3 bedrooms upstairs. A minor inconvenience was the one bathroom upstairs to be shared by 6 people. But we managed just fine.

We found the house to be very clean upon arrival. The house is very well appointed with plenty of towels, blankets, pillows & laundry facilities. The kitchen is equipped with every tool you need to cook meals at home, including a BBQ on the patio. We had wonderful meals in the large dining room, which sat 8 people very comfortably.

The house is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood. Everyday, we walked to various nearby beaches to swim. Nice shopping areas & restaurants are within 10-20 minute driving distance. Diamond head crater is also nearby, with amazing views at the top.

Maggie was very helpful & organized throughout the reservation process & very welcoming.

Wonderfully convenient and well furnished

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic family Thanksgiving vacation at Tiare House. The location is perfect; we ranged in ages from 7 up grandparents--and the beach nearby was a great family place for all ages, in easy walking distance. The house is very well appointed--even to boogie board and comfy beach towels. Condiments are there, too--as well as great cooking equipment and barbecue, so it's easy to cook. Maggie and Tim were welcoming and helpful hosts.

A really nice place to stay when you visit Oahu

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. It is a perfect base for a holiday in Oahu. It is clean and spacious, and it had everything we needed. We initially planned to book a place with a big garden or a pool, but we are happy we did not. We were out most days on the beach, or somewhere, so the house was really for coming back to in the evening to relax. And this place was perfect. It is also in a nice spot if you wish to walk out for the evening. A nice 20 minute walk to Waikiki. The small courtyard was useful to clean up after a visit to the beach, or just a nice spot to sit out in the evening. The fact that it was clean was important for us. We would recommend to friends, and we would rent this house again.

A perfect place to stay when in Oahu

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and it was a very enjoyable home for our holiday. It was clean, spacious, and it had everything we needed. It is convenient to Waikiki beach and a nice 20 minute walk to the Waikiki restaurants. We had thought about renting a house with a large garden or pool, but it did not make sense. We went to Hawaii to enjoy the beaches and the outdoor activities so all we needed was a nice clean home to come back to and relax in the evening - and this home was perfect. The Wifi works well in all areas in the house, and the beach gear was enjoyed by the kids. There is a nice courtyard are at the back of the house to clean off after visiting the beach and relax. We will recommend this house to friends and we will rent it again.

Throughout the years, Waikiki has become the tourist mecca of the Pacific. Located on the South Shore of Oahu, Waikiki and its white sand beaches were home to the legendary surfer, Duke Kahanamoku. Approximately 1.5 miles long, this famous stretch of beach is perfect for both water enthusiasts and beach goers alike. Over the years, the busy streets of Waikiki have become filled with a variety of luxury apartments, hotels and world-class shopping locations; some of which include, the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, Luxury Row and the DFS Galleria. Located along the iconic Waikiki Beach, Kalakaua Avenue can be considered to be the ”Main Strip”: Home to high-end hotels such as the Moana Surfrider, along with world class shopping opportunities such as the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, and DFS Galleria. In contrast, the less glamorous Kuhio Avenue is comparable to Las Vegas’s “Old Town”: Home to the Waikiki Trade Center and some of the neighborhood’s more colorful and long standing restaurants, and nightlife.

Besides the hundreds of dining and shopping opportunities, there are also a number of attractions and activities that the whole family can enjoy. At the east end, is the Honolulu Zoo and Waikiki Aquarium, where visitors can visit and learn about some of Hawaii’s native land and aquatic residents. On the west end, families will also enjoy the Hawaii Army Museum at Fort DeRussy, along with nightly hula shows, weekly Friday night fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and movie nights at “Sunset on the Beach“.

Hawaii’s signature landmark, Diamond Head Crater was once known by the Hawaiians as “Le’ahi” or “brow of the tuna”. Once filled with swamps and agricultural lands, the slopes of Diamond Head have transformed over the years to become one of Oahu’s premiere luxury neighborhoods on the south shore of the island. Home to amazing ocean front views, awesome surf breaks, beautiful hiking trails and secret beach pathways, it is no wonder why Diamond Head has become sought after by a number of celebrities and world elites.

Nestled between Waikiki and Kahala, the Diamond Head area, serves as a beautiful transition from the crowded streets of Honolulu to the quiet urban sprawl of Hawaii Kai and east Oahu.

With multiple scenic areas, visitors can take in the beautiful south shore scenery and maybe even the occasional whale sighting during the winter months. Grab a surfboard and catch a wave at Diamond Head Cliffs or spend a relaxing day on the beach soaking in the warm Hawaiian Sun. Diamond Head Road is also perfect for those looking for a quick scenic run or leisurely stroll. And be sure to check out the historic Diamond Head Crater for breathtaking views from Honolulu to Koko Head.
