About the property

5 Star Accommodations, incredible views, great location, so clean and peaceful!

Enjoy gorgeous unobstructed ocean, marina & mountain views from our beautiful newly built guest house. Located on the ridge, in a safe, quiet and upscale neighborhood in Hawaii Kai, East Honolulu, just around the corner from famous Hanauma Bay, Halona Blow Hole, spectacular Sandy Beach and more! Sea Life Park, Makapuu Beach and Waimanalo Beach are all about 10 minutes away.

Hawaii Kai has something for everyone: beaches, parks, lots of ocean activities, fun hikes of different levels, a great variety of restaurants, movie theaters and shopping. Farmer's markets, supermarkets, beauty salons, gyms, various services, and even Costco are all within 5 minutes. You can be in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki in 20 minutes and at the airport in 40 minutes.

This beautifully appointed open concept residence, is light, airy, pleasant, peaceful and immaculate! A private entrance takes you through a cozy garden, down a few steps, to a welcoming deck and your front door. As soon as you come in, you can enjoy the fantastic view that you can admire from almost every room! With a complete kitchen with gas stove and oven, a full size refrigerator, and long granite counter-tops; you can cook as much or as little as you like. We have a tall dining table set where you can sit and marvel at the view while you enjoy your meals. In front of a big window, you will find a nice area that you could use as a desk. The breezy open concept living room area includes a comfortable sleeper sofa, coffee table, armchairs and TV.

The main bedroom has gorgeous views as well! You can watch the sunrise as well as the moonrise from your luxurious queen size bed. Although there is always a nice breeze, there is a ceiling fan for your comfort as well as an air conditioner unit. This bedroom is separated from the main living area by a half wall to maximize view and airflow.

The second bedroom also has a very comfortable queen size bed and an air conditioner unit. This bedroom is perfect for those who prefer to sleep in a darker room, it has no ocean view, but it does have a door that separates it from the main living area.

High quality, white, 100% cotton linens are used for all beds.

The bathroom is super clean, large and convenient. The shower has great water pressure and hot water. Clean 100% cotton towels are also supplied for every guest.

An efficient washer and dryer unit for your own use is also inside the guest house.

About Claudia


We are a family of three who loves our home and living in Hawaii. We have lived in Honolulu for over 30 years. The weather, the ocean, the sites, the incredible beaches, the flowers, the hula, the music, the fragrant breezes... and the wonderful people. Have I mentioned we love Hawaii? We know you'll love it here too.

Why Claudia chose Hawaii Kai

We chose to buy property in Hawaii Kai because it is beautiful, fun, safe, convenient, and affluent but with an overall casual and comfortable vibe. We are close enough to downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, but far enough that we always feel we are on vacation. We have everything we need just five minutes away: restaurants, movie theaters, grocery stores, shops, hikes, and some of the most beautiful beaches of the island!

We chose this particular property up on the ridge because of the gorgeous views, the spaciousness, the light, and the privacy.

After living in the main house for 12 years, we decided to have the guest house built for visiting family and friends.

What makes this house unique

What a gorgeous place! Our guest house is private, quiet and peaceful. Ocean breezes keep you cool and comfortable. The fantastic view will remind you how lucky you are to be vacationing in Hawaii.

Perfect accommodations and wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for better accommodations during our weeklong stay in Oahu over the Christmas holiday. My husband and I were traveling with my parents on their first trip to Hawaii, and the guest house was perfect for us. Claudia was a wonderful host who gave us a warm welcome upon arrival, and was always available if we needed anything (which we didn't, as the guest house is immaculately clean and perfectly appointed). Hawaii Kai is a terrific home base to explore the island, with plenty of conveniences just a short drive away. It was a joy to wake up to stunning views of Koko Head every morning. We hope very much to come back!

very windy during night time. The wind makes big noise. It is isolated on the hill.

All the comforts of home, exceptionally clean, stunning view

  • 5 of 5

The guest house is excellent - so comfortable, clean and organised that it is just like being at home. The kitchen is fully equipped so it's very easy to cook if you want to. What I liked most was the attention to detail and thoughtfulness in everything provided (e.g. Beach gear, bags, esky/cooler packs, umbrellas, cleaning products etc). Claudia met us on arrival and oriented us to the area/provided many handy tips on activities and restaurants. The location is perfect for exploring the east (and anywhere really as long as you have a car). We would definitely stay again.

Hawaii Kai guest house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Claudia's guest house. We have no complaints as it was just as pictured in VRBO listing. It was very clean, comfortable and had a beautiful view. The bed was very comfortable. We used the bedroom off the living room as we enjoyed the breezes and fan at night. We never used the air conditioner. The 2nd bedroom has the closet and the door. We used it as a dressing room. Just FYI, the bedroom off the living room has no door or closet which did not bother us at all as their were just the 2 of us, but if there were 4 people, they would be happier if they were 1 family or very close friends. Claudia was the most accommodating owner we have ever rented from. We asked about a coffee grinder and blender and the next day she showed up with a brand new one. We asked about snorkeling gear and she showed up with new snorkeling gear for both of us. She was very responsive and willing to help, although she did leave you privacy when you wanted. The unit has its own entrance. It was a lovely place to see the island and we enjoyed ourselves very much. She was also right on time with returning the damage deposit. Thanks for a great vacation in Hawaii Kai. We definitely recommend this rental. Chris and Tom, Spokane, WA

Welcomed with open arms. Gorgeous view from the living room and guest room.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was amazing from the beginning. Claudia kept in contact with us throughout the whole experience and made our trip that much more comfortable and calming. I was nervous about traveling with my 17 month old son. Claudia was kind enough to provide us with a high chair and pack and play. That made things so much easier . And when we were unsure if where to go she gave us great suggestions. I highly highly recommend you stay here. You won't regret it .
