Near Waikiki and secluded. We also had a car which gave us all the options.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in a beautiful location.

Close proximity to the city, Waikiki beach, grocery stores, Costco, Hanauma Bay, tennis courts, etc but with the advantage of privacy and serenity, being located in a ravine just under Diamond-head peak.

The house's full functional kitchen and outdoor BBQ, allows for cooking your own meals.

The beds are comfortable. The laundry room with large washer and dryer (+supplies) allow for not having to pack too many clothes.

Joseph, the owner, is very nice, pleasant and accommodating. Always responsive to any question or concern.

Our trip was a blast and I give two big thumbs up to Joseph for operating and maintaining such beautiful property!

Highly recommended and we will definitely come back if we get back to Oahu.

A fantastic house in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful on so many levels! Superb location. At the foot of Diamond Head. A few minute stroll down the street to the beach. A bit longer (maybe 15 minute?) but still easy walk to the Waikiki Beach.

Joseph was a wonderful host. He was waiting for us when we arrived to ensure our entry was easy. He walked us through the property. He checked back to make sure we were comfortable.

The Home was VERY nice. Two bedrooms (each with Queen-size bed) Living room with dining area. Lanai off the LR and BR. Lower level with gas grill and seating area. Fully equipped kitchen. Well maintained and very clean property. We were given Joseph's text and encouraged to reach out if we did have any problems.

I have already recommended this property to friends. We will be going back as soon as we possibly can!

Charming peaceful sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Joseph and Mark thank you for a great part of our relaxing getaway to Hawaii.

Your home was one of the joys of our trip.

First week of November of 2017

This home is situated right ON amazing find...1/2 hour walk to the bustle of Waikiki.

There is a hill to get home...but that puts you above the noise and the street traffic and just about everything...king of the hill.

There are stairs to get you from your parking spot to your house...but not steep and they are through a well-lit lush garden loaded with garden art...just beautiful.

The walk down looking at this little gem of a house with Diamond Head peak looming behind it made me smile each walk down these steps.

Come home each evening to your charming cottage situated in a breezy valley garden paradise.

We never even put the air conditioner on.

The garden is beautiful and huge...loaded with art and thoughtful features including great lighting and comfy seating on smooth teak benches

The only noise you will here is the waves of the ocean and the birds chirping

The house is also beautiful

Well-appointed lovely art and fixtures.

Nice comfy beds and great kitchen and bath.

It’s a gem...

We stayed home two nights and had friends over and entertained. We picked up and BBQ’d local fish and made a lovely Hawaiian meal here.

Our local friends brought beer from the Aloha Brewing Company and their guitars and they played music all evening.

The local friends jaws dropped and they wowed their way through the house and garden when we were showing it off.

None knew this place was even here and were blown away.

A Magical evening

Why anyone would want to go to Hawaii and stay in a cramped high-rise when this is available I will never know.

Joseph and Mark were lovely and great hosts ...available if you needed anything...but not nosing have your complete privacy here

Mahlo gentlemen

Beautiful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. So hidden and tranquil, it felt like a remote location rather than suburban Honolulu. So convenient even Waikiki within easy walking distance. The cottage was well appointed and extremely comfortable.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the property and how well maintained it is. This was our place in paradise for 10 days, and it's breathtaking. We love getting up in the morning and hearing the birds chirping. It's such a joy and privilege to stay at this place. Thank you for sharing this home with us.
