Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 large bathroom, sleeps 4

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 2 bedroom cottage, minutes from the heart of Honolulu with easy access to shopping, Waikiki and the beach. It is idyllic setting with tropical gardens, privacy, quiet and very welcoming...It is removed without being remote. 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. This beautiful home works equally well as a romantic retreat setting or for family vacations. Conveniently located 1.2 miles away from Waikiki beach, near supermarkets, movie theaters and yet, secluded in the hills of Makiki Heights with beautiful ocean, Diamond Head and City views. This property sleeps 4 comfortably and it has 2 large bedrooms, 1 bathroom, living room, gourmet kitchen, a huge outside lanai for great entertaining, free WIFI, free parking for 4 cars, W/D, ceiling fans, 2 flat screen TVs, and super quite and breezy.

Great views - Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had the pleasure of staying in this home while we visited with relatives on the island. We utilized all three bedrooms which offered us the privacy and space we needed. The outside lanai and the lanai with the hammock were our favorite places to hang out. We were on the go a lot so we did not utilize the kitchen area, but the built in eating area was a great space for gathering.

This house has awesome views of the city. A hidden gem - close to Waikiki and a short drive to pretty much any connecting highway. Jose was the perfect host, offering suggestions to many local establishments with great food and coffee.

Our extended family is looking forward to coming back and staying on the property again. We would highly recommend this home to everyone! Thanks Jose for being an awesome host and we look forward to staying with you again in the near future.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It would be best to clarify that we do have a dishwasher but for 1 day during your stay it was out of service because it was unplugged under the sink. Sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to see you again in a near future.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Five Star Rating! Web-site description of this 2-bedroom home is no exaggeration; it is spot on! Staying here instead of a hotel was just awesome. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a vacation rental that is truly a home away from home. Priced right too. Perfect location, just minutes to shopping and restaurants. Jose, can't say enough of your hospitality, kudos for an enjoyable 5-day stay.

Nice accommodations in a very quite neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here while on Oahu. This is a nice cottage nestled on a hill overlooking the downtown Honolulu skyline (which is really cool at night). Our favorite feature was the very large lanai. The only downside, it can get a little warm inside during the day (no AC in the unit). This didn't really bother us much as we were generally gone during the day. It did cool down at night and, with the ample celling fans, proved to be a comfortable sleeping temperature.
