Charles C. Frost purchased this house in 2006
The first time I came to Honolulu I couldn't take my eyes off those houses on the ridges overlooking the Freeway. Dazzled by the views of the ocean and of Diamond Head from every direction, I couldn't help thinking, 'What must the view be like from up there?' Three years later the contractor who implemented my son's renovation plan for this house exclaimed about its 'billion-dollar view.' Today, cooled by the refreshing tradewinds, my husband and I study, cook, hike, swim and entertain, enjoying that view from every room, from the lanais and from the pool. Our guests who come to 'do Hawaii' often find that this designer-renovated house is itself a destination.
Relax in spacious, comfortable surroundings open to a breathtaking view of sea, sky and Hawaii's iconic Diamond Head. Enjoy the green below you as you view the lushly landscaped Waialae Country Club golf course lined with strands of coconut palm, monkey pod and kiawe trees. Watch the tropicbirds and egrets soaring by. And, of course, the ships crossing Maunalua Bay. Truly refreshing!
It is extremely easy to write a rave review about the accommodations afforded by this vacation home. The views are spectacular of the ocean as well as the lush vegetation of the golf course and surrounding areas. Diamond Head is a view by itself, and a recommended activity is to climb to the top for a more amazing view. There were five in our party, and the rooms with the lanais were very quiet and restful. Downtown Honolulu, golf course, beaches, and sightseeing are readily available. We would love to own this home and stay year-round.
I booked this property for several weeks as lodging for a team of field engineers in town on an installation project and was delighted that Charles was extremely helpful before and after their stay. Although I never visited the location, the engineers shared that they loved it there. The location was PERFECT - close but not too close. The amenities and layout provided the space and privacy they needed to make their stay pleasant and memorable. If necessary, we will definitely return in the future and would certainly recommend to friends and relatives!
We live on Oahu so we decided to book this home to celebrate and host our family visiting for our daughter's high school graduation. Our family of 8 stayed for 8 nights and found it not only as advertised but better; a quiet location, with amazing scenic views, yet near the beach and other great activities. Everything in the house was perfect. It is very clean, the kitchen was very well equipped and the pool was fun. The sitting and dining room were perfect for our family to enjoy daily home-cooked meals provided by the visiting grandmothers. Waking up every morning to the open and well ventilated house, then stepping out into the lanai to take in the magnificent view of Diamond Head and the rest of the island really made or family's first trip to Hawaii memorable. Best of all, you can enjoy the amazing views from all three levels of the house. There is also a Whole Foods, Times Supermarket, and Kahala shopping mall only 3 minutes away. This place exceeded our expectations; the home is extremely comfortable and well appointed. Charles and his sweet wife went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Their generosity and thoughtfulness went beyond being excellent hosts; they even presented our daughter with a nice card for graduation...Thank you Charles and Jan!! I highly recommend this place and would definitely choose this home again whenever visiting Hawaii.
Who knew when we booked a trip to Oahu we would be crossing Hawaii off of my 85-year-old mother’s bucket list but also have the privilege of being treated as family by our wonderful hosts, Jan and Charley? This home is magnificent and very spacious! The pictures are highly accurate in depicting a well-kept, warm and inviting home but those pictures simply do not do the magnificent views justice. It was a breathtaking experience to wake up each morning and step foot out on the deck and absorb the beauty of this island from a beautiful home on the hill. The large and well-equipped kitchen afforded us opportunities to prepare our own meals and relax after a busy day of sightseeing or outings to the beach. Even though there were only four family members on this trip, we could spread out between the three different levels and have our own privacy yet come together in the living/kitchen area to share family time and/or meals. Our mother stayed on the main level which was one flight of steps down from the street and she didn’t have any difficulty with the stairs at all. The rest of our family agreed with a previous reviewer in that the rest of the steps were great exercise to work off delicious food and drink of the island. If you have the time and are so inclined, take some time to chat with your hosts. They are the some of the most gracious and interesting people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. They recommended a great restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast, dinner and several happy hours. They are very knowledgeable about the area and can point you in the right direction for most anything you would want to do! They even took family pictures for us when we headed out to a luau one evening. The home was perfectly situated so that any tourist spot or the beach was only a short drive away. It was nice to come home to the peaceful quiet neighborhood after a hectic, fast-paced day at Waikiki Beach. I would recommend this rental home to anyone and I definitely plan to return to Oahu one day and I will look no further than Jan and Charley’s home for the perfect place to stay.
My husband and I decided to have a "family reunion" vacation. His family were coming in from Japan, and we were arriving from the Bay Area. We could not have picked a more perfect spot! The house fit all 8 of us (6 adults and two kids) perfectly. Despite the lack of air conditioning, the house was open and airy - fans in every room helped greatly. The kitchen was perfectly sized and stocked for family meals - which we had many!
Jan and Charlie could not have been more gracious hosts. They were welcoming, helpful when we had issues (the only real issue was not understanding how the shower worked :-)) and a delight to chat with and get to know.
The absolute stand-out of this house is the pool. For my nephew (14) and niece (7) they were in that pool any time they were awake. And of course, for the grownups, being able to enjoy a drink, listen to some music, and relax in the pool after a "hard day" of sightseeing and dining out made this the perfect way to end our days.
We'd come back here in a heartbeat. The only caveat I would mention is the stairs - 3 - 4 flights from the entrance to the poolhouse. If you have family members who have mobility issues this may give you pause. My in-laws, who are 69 and 74, are in fine shape and had no problems whatsoever.
Thanks again to Charlie and Jan for an absolutely perfect vacation home!
Perfect location for traveling and easy access to major highway. Accommodations fit our family very well. Poolside was warm when the beaches were not. Thanks to Charlie and Janice for making our stay so memorable.
The home being built on a mountain, provided many new and fun experiences. There are three levels to this home, each has a washroom and spacious Hawaiian comfort. A pool on the bottom floor was essential as there is no air conditioning, but this still proved to be a fun and excellent way to cool off from the sun. The photos are accurate, it was a cleanly home and the ambiance you get from being in the home is very pleasant.
Location wise, you're a 5 minute drive from Kahala mall and another 10 minutes from there to get to Diamond Head volcano. The H1 highway is just before the mall, so going anywhere such as Hanauma bay or Waikiki is a breeze. Speaking of which, that's another pro to being a mountain, you get more of a breeze but never in our four week stay was it ever windy. Also if you're looking to go for walks, going on a morning or evening walk on this mountain is great exercise.
Above all else, the view was magnificent, photos don't do any justice to the paradise feel that you receive. It's a dream to walk out on the balcony and soak it all in!
Lastly the owners were welcoming, kind and helpful which is also why there is no trouble recommending this home to anyone else.
