The 'Gingerbread House' was designed in the late 1920's by J. Alvin Shadinger and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a Tudor-French Norman cottage completed in 1931 during the times he was designing similar cottages in the Diamond Head area and was Mr. Shadinger's home for many years. The house has been a location for several movies and television series. It has recently been remodeled and is located just across the street from Kahala Beach.
The Gingerbread house is built on 3 levels with split A/C and has 4 bedrooms, three of them with queen size luxury pillow-top mattresses adorned with Italian bedding. Tasteful art and accessories compliment each bedroom as well as flat screen televisions with built in DVD. The downstairs bedroom has a lovely view of the backyard fountain and pool. The hardwood floors throughout the home have been refinished and the living area is appointed with modern furnishings which give a clean, understated look letting the beauty of this one-of-a-kind cottage and it's natural surroundings sparkle. The kitchen is designed with professional appliances featuring a Viking gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, separate ice-maker and wine cooler, and dishwasher. The dining room seats at least 8 people and is located just a few steps above the living room and indoor bar area which has another flat screen television with built in DVD. Complimentary wireless internet service.
The beautifully landscaped back yard features a pool, black tiled spa, covered lanai and a separate gazebo to make this a great home away from home in Hawaii. Just minutes away from Kahala Mall, Hanauma Bay, Ala Moana Shopping Center, and fine dining.

I've lived in the islands for more than 30 years and fell in love with this house when I first saw it never realizing that one day I would own it! It truly is a treasure and one that you will enjoy. Take a walk across the street down the path to the beach. We have some beautifully pristine & clear water for swimming and snorkeling. There is also a pipe that many people walk on quite a ways out to check out the water. But, please,, do this part at your own risk!!!!!
My love of historical architecture and in particular the French Tudor Norman cottages built by J Alvin Shadinger who built The Gingerbread House and called it home. The beautiful neighborhood, the best shopping and of course, the beach...
