PLEASE SCROLL BELOW CALENDAR TO FIND RENTAL RATES.
Elegant, Hawaiian style, 4600 sq. ft. home with spectacular ocean views and lush, tropical gardens. Located 100 feet from the ocean in a secluded beach-side community, the home has access to a small, private beach, perfect for putting in a kayak or canoe, or for the more adventuresome, boogie boarding or surfing an advanced, local surf break. An infinity pool and spa offer quiet relaxation in the beautifully landscaped backyard overlooking the ocean.
Perched at the end of a private, dead end lane, the house looks out to Koko Head Crater, Lanai and Maui, and enjoys peaceful sunrises and cool ocean breezes year round. Originally used as a beach and fishing retreat for Hawaiian royalty, this private cove remains today one of the best kept secrets on the island.
Custom built in 2002 and featured in the London Financial Times travel section in 2005, the home was carefully designed to take advantage of the exceptional views from every room. Its architecture reflects a sophisticated blend of Hawaiian and Balinese design and detail, including a double pitched roof, 20 foot vaulted ceilings, rich, teak flooring, carved wood doors and ceiling molding, ceiling fans and sill vent windows which allow a flow of fresh air from the outside to naturally cool the house. The house also has air-conditioning, with separate zones in most rooms. The house sleeps 8, with 4 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths, a living room, study, family room, exercise room and two large, covered lanais.
The large living room has 20 foot, vaulted ceilings and 30 feet of sliding glass doors that open to a spacious, covered lanai, creating a huge, indoor/outdoor living space with complete privacy and magnificent ocean views and breezes. The room is entered through a gracious foyer and has comfortable seating for relaxing and visiting. The dining room also opens onto the lanai and flows into a large kitchen with granite counters, a center island, and top of the line appliances. Outside the kitchen is a built-in, gas barbeque, with a pass through window into the kitchen. Both dining room and kitchen also have 20 foot, vaulted ceilings. The main floor of the house is completed with an office that opens onto the Living Room, Master suite, powder room and laundry room.
Downstairs are an additional Master suite with private bath, and two bedrooms that share a large bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers. The family room has a pool table, large T.V. and opens onto a garden, pool and a covered lanai with two chaise lounges and a daybed. There is also a small exercise room with an elliptical exercise machine, free weights, exercise ball and bands.
The home has wireless Internet throughout, is walking distance from Diamond Head Crater, and within a five minute drive to Waikiki or Kahala Mall. A property manager lives in a separate cottage nearby. A private chef and daily maid service can also be arranged.

Super private and luxurious high-end house next to Diamond Head and Honolulu
As someone who has now rented +10 high-end houses on VRBO I can categorically say this was a true 5-star experience.
Everything about the house, the location, the view and the overall set-up and experience was superb. The owners, and the lovely caretakers of the house, have done an outstanding job in offering up an experience where every last detail has been thought through with delighted attention to detail. As an example, whenever you are in the garden level and in the pool facing the ocean, the garden has carefully been arranged such that you don't see any of the neighboring houses, so it truly feels like a private wilderness experiences where all you hear are the waves breaking nearby.
My family and I utilized the full house and all the (4) bedrooms and bathrooms, and all worked beautifully. The kitchen was well arranged and well stocked.
The location just doesn't get much better, with a 5 minute run to the top of Diamond Head, 25 minute run to Waikiki, or 5 minute drive to Waikiki :) Many good shops and restaurants are nearby at the local Kahala mall (3 min drive) where there is even a Starbucks that's open 19 hours a day, does it get any better :)
Netting it all out, the value equation for this house is outstanding, and I strongly endorse and recommend it to anyone.
Brilliant! True Paradise!
The photos do not do this property justice as to how wonderful it is. Walking into the house and seeing the views from the upper living area is a true "WOW" moment. The downstairs area was a great space for the kids to have their own bedroom, bathrooms and living / leisure space. The house is beautifully maintained, furnished and decorated to create a treasured home feeling, rather than typical rental. The location is very private, but still close to everything. Kahala mall is only a 3 min drive and had everything we needed including great eating options for the family. It was super easy to get onto freeway to head into the city or beyond to the beautiful north shore. The owner Carol and caretaker Debbie are both lovely people, very easy to deal with and did everything possible to help us enjoy our stay. We can't recommend this property highly enough for a memorable holiday in paradise.
We went in search of a dream and found it in this property.
It was as a superb experience from start to finish. Carol, the owner, was quick to respond to our emails and resolved everything to our satisfaction. Jackie, the property manager was very friendly and helpful and ready to assist with anything. The home is located in a wonderful location. A nice quiet neighbourhood and at same time close to everything. It is a large home with lots of beautiful, well-appointed living areas. It is obvious this is a "treasured home” and not just a holiday rental. Huge kitchen that wants for nothing. Self-contained entertainment for all ages. Comfortable beds. Relaxing & soothing ambiance and most of all views to die for from everywhere you look. Sometimes we build up things in our minds only to be let down by reality. This was not the case with this property, not only did it live up to it but it surpassed all expectation.
Wonderful Hawaiian Home, the perfect place!
This home is just simply wonderful. I booked the house for two weeks and loved every minute there with friends for a special birthday. The owner, Carol, is incredible to work with and the caretakers are close enough if you need anything and are happy to help, but also give you your privacy. You can tell right away when you enter the house that this is a special place and not just your regular rental. The beautiful Balinese art throughout the home gives it warmth and shows how much the owners care for the home and love it themselves. The views are fantastic, we spent many hours on the veranda and the kitchen has everything you need and more. Carol helped me coordinate a catered dinner and her recommendation for a chef was perfect. The location is also great, close enough to Waikiki and downtown Honolulu if you want to get out but also so private and quiet. If you are lucky enough to stay in this beautiful home you won't be disappointed. We loved it!
Family Holiday in luxury home!
We had the most amazing stay in this beautiful home. We had 3 couples and 2 infants in our group and felt like we had so much space. The kitchen and BBQ were brilliant and made "eating in" so easy as it had everything you could need. We sat on the balcony most evenings and enjoyed the ocean breeze and during the day took in the incredible view. Loved being out of the hassle and bustle of Waikiki and would definitely stay here again.
Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Parasailing, Health/Beauty Spa.
