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.

Tranquility near the beaches

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at this wonderful property. On a dead end street, a few blocks from the beach, at the base of Diamondhead, this is a unique house. Fully appointed with views of the flora and fauna, no noise except for the birds chirping in the morning, this is paradise. Yet, you can walk to Waikiki Beach,if you want, or take advantage of smaller, more secluded beaches a short distance from the house. The management is excellent and accessible. I hate to post this review because we'd like to keep it our little secret but that wouldn't be fair.

Tree House Retreat

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful location! Close to everything yet you feel you are far away in a jungle paradise. It is obvious that extra care was taken to provide wonderfully appointed accommodations. We loved being serenated by birds every morning and listening to the waves crash at night. Thank you Jo for making us feel so comfortable throughout our stay!!

Fantastic vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic location! Your backyard is literally the base of Diamondhead, so you are within walking distance of beautiful beaches or a short drive from Waikiki. The house is set back from the street in a small valley, so it is extremely quiet, the only sounds were the birds. The street and surrounding properties are gorgeous, and the owner's property at the top of the ridge commands a stunning view, which you will admire. Our family of four was very comfortable here, at times we opted just to stay at home rather than going out. The kitchen is well appointed and there are great places to entertain small groups, both indoors and out, including a gas grill. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner, he takes great care of the property and was responsive to all our needs. I could easily stay here again.
