|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
By the day, gorgeous, sweeping views of the Honolulu skyline and beyond. By the night, it becomes a panoramic vista of the sparkling city lights. This is a beautiful, spacious and uniquely situated home, 7 minutes (literately) from the Waikiki beach with easy access to shopping and all the convenience while vacationing. It is idyllic setting with tropical gardens, privacy, quiet and very welcoming. The tropical tranquility allows you to relax, enjoy a glass of champagne on the lanai, or to read a book in the lush beauty of the garden. There is even a magnificent bamboo forest only minutes from this beautiful location for hiking and exploring. There is also a large gym with expansive views and lots of light, perfect for all of your exercise needs. This beautiful home works equally well as a romantic retreat setting or for family vacations.
I bought this property 13 years ago because of its unique location with sweeping views and easy and convenient access to the beach, shopping, hiking trails and privacy which is a rare combination in Hawaii.
Location, location, location...beautiful views and very comfortable...beyond that, the 100+ year old Chinese Banyan tree keeps this home cool throughout the year and provides a home within a home to many different birds and a soothing sound to waking up to every morning.
This stunning home far exceeded our expectations! We had a large group, (12 total), with plenty of room for all of us. The house was perfect for entertaining, with the dining room opening up to the patio area. We celebrated our daughter's graduation and could not have had a better location to do so!
Jose was a wonderful host, and we are very grateful to him for the opportunity to rent his home.
We highly recommend this property - it is a truly special place!

Very nice location, close to downtown/beach, yet far away from the noise!
Amazing view from the open deck, especially at tight.
Owner Jose was very helpful in every possible way! Would absolutely stay there again!!
The house was perfect for our large family. It was very spacious and had a great view, yet it is very centrally located. Owner lives very close by and was attentive to our needs. We would stay here again on our next holiday.
Our visit to Oahu was “magical” in large part because of where we stayed. This house is a quiet sanctuary on a hillside with a panoramic view of the city and the Pacific Ocean beyond.
The front door opens into the great room where gleaming wood floors extend toward floor-to-ceiling windows that line the whole rear of the house. The windows bring in the city views and the cool Hawaiian breeze. Because of its location on the edge of the hill, it is wide open and airy, yet private and serene. You cannot walk through the house without the view leaping into almost every room. The city sparkles, and the view changes all day with the arc of the sun and the nighttime city lights.
The master bedroom has its own private balcony. This was a great place to read and relax. The sensation in this home is so pleasant it made it hard to leave and wonderful to come home to after our daily adventures.
The wide back yard is a garden with a spacious patio for outdoor dining. Pocket doors that run along the length of the dining room allow you to open the entire room to the outdoors. At the edge of the patio is the most extraordinary 100-year-old, huge, Banyan Tree. There is a hammock in this tree next to the Bar B Q, where we feasted and rested in the evenings.
If you feel inclined to get some exercise, the downstairs area includes a large workout room lined with mirrors. It is fully equipped with free weights, exercise equipment, a massage table and pool table.
The owner of the home welcomed us and was such a fabulous concierge. If you happen to chat with him during your visit, don’t hesitate to mine his knowledge of the island. He knows all the best places to visit, the best beaches and most delicious places to eat. He can help you find all the local spots and hidden treasures.
We were so comfortable here we cancelled our flight and stayed another week!
I know I must sound like a travel agent but I’m not. I’m just a really happy traveler, who just had the best experience ever, who cannot wait to go back to Oahu!!
We could not have asked for a better place to stay while on Oahu! 3 colleagues and I were traveling to Honolulu for business for 3 weeks. It's a long time to be away from home, and the thought of being cooped up in a hotel for that long didn't sound appealing at all. I began researching homes for rent in the area and found this amazing place. When we arrived it was evening time and when you open the front door of the home the first thing you are struck by at night is the breathtaking view of the city down below. It was absolutely stunning. The home is nestled in to a very quite, private, upscale neighborhood. The layout of the home was perfect for us as well. With 4 bedrooms and 4 separate bathrooms (there is an additional bathroom, so no shortage of privacy here!), we were all able to enjoy and work in the communal space of the home together, but still had the privacy to retreat to our own quiet spaces in the evenings. The lanai outside was awesome and we enjoyed the outdoor space every day. There is a great hammock in the back yard strung up between the branches of a 150 year old banyan tree which I couldn't even begin to describe it's beauty - it was magical. I laid in the hammock nearly every evening looking out at the city lights, and laid there a few morning as the sun began to rise listening to all of the birds talk to each other...paradise. There is a large dining room table which we were able to work from and have meals together at as well. We took advantage of the outdoor barbecue grill many of the nights we were there -it has an outdoor table to eat at as well.
One of my colleagues is very diligent about his morning workout routine, so having a full gym in the basement was an extra bonus for him and he used it every morning. Another colleague and I took advantage of the homes great location in that we were able to walk/run in the mornings or evenings - the main road goes up to a spectacular lookout, and if you follow the road down you can easily walk to Safeway, shopping or restaurants.
The homeowner was awesome - he was available if we needed anything, had questions or just needed island recommendations (he made great recommendations!)
The basement also has a full size pool table which we used every night we were there. After a long day of work it was fun for us to relax and play a few games together before heading off to bed.
We can't wait to return, for work or for play, and would 100%, without a doubt, stay here again!
The house was everything as described and much more. It is very well equipped with everything you need. The views from the landis are spectacular, the appliances and bbq are top-notch. The location is great and the owner is fantastic. He was very helpful and informative and catered to all our needs without hesitation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property. Thanks for taking such good care of us, Jose.
