Situated only 2 miles from Diamond Head, 2.5 miles from Waikiki, 1.5 miles from Kahala Mall, 8 miles from Hanauma Bay, and 11 miles (20 minutes) from the airport.

The fully equipped kitchen is a chef’s dream, with a gas cooktop, a double oven, one of which is convection, a dishwasher, and a view. The kitchen has a cute breakfast nook, but you will probably have your coffee on the spacious lanai. The home is equipped with three TV’s, a VCR, a CD/ipod player, internet and boardgames. One bedroom has a king sized bed, one- a queen, one- two twins, and there’s a convertible double futon couch available in the living room. It comfortably sleeps 6-8. We’re equipped with a washer and dryer, detergent included. It has a lovely garden with an outdoor shower for when you get back from beach. Come home and breathe in the fragrance from the mature Plumeria trees which surround the home.

There's one covered parking space and ample street parking is available.

Owners live below on the first floor and can speak English and Japanese.

The unit is on the second floor, and there are 12 stairs up to access it.

There is no air conditioning, but the home stays cool from the well designed cross breezes, fans in all rooms, and solar shades in the living and dining rooms.

Come relax and re-energize in this lovely Hawaiian home, enjoy unbelievable views and live Aloha.

Great House! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is surrounded by tropical trees and flowers. We enjoyed the cool breezes and sweeping views of the ocean, Diamond Head, and Honolulu from the spacious lanai. The house is fully equipped with everything, including all the gear you’ll need for your beach excursions (towels, chairs, toys, boogie boards, etc.). It was never more than a 7-10 minute drive to all the places we wanted to go in the Honolulu/Waikiki area. Having our own parking spot on the property was very convenient! Cristen gave us a warm and friendly welcome. She gave us tips on where to dine on nearby Waialae Avenue and we discovered a few on our own (our favorite was BREW’d Craft Pub). We really enjoyed our stay and I highly recommend this gorgeous property to other travelers!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. Tons of fresh white towels, kitchenware and an amazing view of Diamond Head. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

A+ house A+ view A+ hospitality

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely experience! The house is *perfectly* set up -- beach towels, beach gear, every little thoughtful convenience. It's very fresh and airy and extremely clean. I love the classic 1940s interiors, and the huge covered lanai (porch) in front has stunning views of Diamond Head and downtown Honolulu. Access to the restaurants of the nearby Kaumuki neighborhood, to Waikiki, the beach, Safeway, and Haunama Bay are all easy and close by.

If you are staying on a Friday night, be sure to watch out for the fireworks over Waikiki around 7:45pm -- an unexpected treat on our last night. Cristina and her family were wonderful hosts, and their house downstairs seems completely detached and our place upstairs felt very private. Highly recommended and we'd love to stay there again!

Spectacular panoramic view of Diamond Head!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything that a real home has. The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances, dishes and pots and pans. If you like sitting out on a lanai at night overlooking the city lights you will absolutely love this place. Cristin is a wonderful hostess, we had to call her at 10:30pm because we did know how to turn on the deluxe double oven. Cristin graciously came upstairs and taught us how to turn it on so that we could cook our pizza. Cristin is awesome!!! This house had plenty of room and privacy. The bed in the master bedroom was a bit firm, but if you like a firm mattress then it will be fine for you. The only thing we couldn't find was a measuring cup, but we just made due. It was a fabulous experience staying here, definitely will do it again.
