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, has a Steinway grand piano and 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.
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!
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.
And I am not just talking about Hawaii... the home was amazing. We relaxed every day and watched the sunrise and spectacular views from this home which is located in a nice quiet neighborhood. We were close to everything, but it didn't feel like we were in the city. Having a private pool and spa allowed everyone in our party to relax and enjoy the water. The homeowner, Carol and Jackie, the caretaker were super nice and made us feel welcome. When we get the opportunity to return to Oahu, I will definitely stay here again, and I would highly recommend for anyone who understands this is not your typical rental but a work of art!
We travel to Oahu every year and have stayed everywhere from the Kahala Resort to the big Waikiki hotels. This is a beautiful, well appointed home that provides a wonderful location for a relaxing holiday. It is super convenient to Diamond Head (we ran around it every morning), the great funky restaurants on Montsarrat Ave., and the Kahala Mall. Every day we found ourselves sitting on the lanai talking, enjoying the spectacular view and watching the whales offshore. The TV was off the entire week with no complaints. The home has an aura of ohana and is a truly wonderful vacation spot. We look forward to returning next year.
Also, the owner and managers are wonderful, accommodating people.
We had the privilege of staying at this property for a summer break in June of 2015. We always felt as though we were decompressing, as we made the very short drive from the craziness that is Waikiki (other family members were staying at resorts there) to the calm and serene Kahala area. This home offered everything a family needed for a truly relaxing and comfortable stay on South Oahu. The home was large and accommodating. A lot of thought had obviously been put into its architecture, design and decorating - the rooms were all beautifully furnished. We lived on the lanai and pool deck and soaked up the beautiful landscaping, spectacular views and cooling winds. While we prefer to eat out when on vacation, we did have a family dinner for ten at the house, and I found the kitchen to be well appointed – there was NOTHING that I needed that I couldn’t find. Both the Owner (Carol) and the Property Manager (Leslie) were lovely to deal with and very accommodating. I have no hesitancy giving this property the highest recommendation.
We give this home the highest recommendation for a wonderful vacation in South Oahu. The views are amazing. It was mesmerizing to look out to the palm trees and the view of the ocean all the way to Koko Head, at any time of the day or night. The sound of the ocean is an extra benefit. We never wanted to go out for meals because we just wanted to sit on the lanai, and the fully furnished kitchen and grill made that possible. The furnishings are incredibly nice with highly crafted woodworking throughout. The beds are very comfortable. The on-site property manager is friendly and a great help. The pool, hot tub, pool table and many books kept everyone entertained. The location is perfect - close enough to Waikiki if you need to go, but otherwise it feels a world away. Kahala beach is beautiful and very quiet on the weekdays. We wish we were still there.
Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Parasailing, Health/Beauty Spa.
