Julie purchased this House in 1993
Why Julie chose Eastern Honolulu
We fell in love with this house on a kayak trip and made it ours 22 years ago. We love its location on a very private beach with ocean and mountain panoramas and access to many activities without driving. Recent renovations to the master bathroom and open plan kitchen (2014), upstairs bathroom remodel (2019) New windows in living area (2019) make this home even more special.
What makes this House unique
With the ocean, beach, pool, stars.. and unlimited streaming entertainment, why drive anywhere? We can truly relax. Julie and Eva, our guests services specialists, will be your hosts during your stay.

Great Oceanfront Private Home
This home is in a stunning location (away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, but close enough to everything) and is very private. The views from the master deck make you feel like the ocean is so close you could almost jump into it! The home is nicely furnished, the kitchen well stocked with quality supplies and has an overall lovely, open floor plan. The pool was an added bonus - great for a cool-off plunge. The only draw backs were that the sliding doors were a bit dated and did not open/close easily and the neighbors dogs barked a bit. But overall, nothing that was not tolerable or that ruined the peace and serenity the home offered. A lovely property and we will definitely stay again.
Exceptional family getaway
Three generations of my family from east and west coasts came together for an exceptional family getaway anchored at this wonderful house. Everyone from my 7 year old niece to my 73 year old mother loved the saltwater pool, the spacious open living room and kitchen and the quiet upstairs bedrooms. The location was ideal for exploring Honolulu. The management was very helpful and the security was simple enough for us to figure out. It was a joy to wake up every morning and walk outside to watch the sun rise by the water and then enjoy sunset kayaking. Thank you, Julie, Elizabeth and Eva, for a wonderful family reunion!
"Over the top" Special Place
"Over the top beautiful " was how my architect husband described this very special house as we entered. A beautiful piece of paradise and perfect for our once a year get together with my 2 sisters and brother in law. As is typical for houses in the islands, the very open concept and many sliding doors and windows, allowed the trades through the first floor from all directions.The bedrooms also are open but do have ac. Beautifully and tastefully decorated, the artwork gives a bit of a window into the humor of the owners ... The Puffin/Nuffin and Judgment(?) prints a fav. We were very comfortable in all of the rooms and had a great time watching the featured cook of the day make use of the outstanding kitchen. Outside, many hours were spent catching up in the blue tiled pool and dining at the comfortable large table. The outside shower and Kayaks were also well used. This house had everything and more. The location although on a busy road, was not a problem at all. In fact, this house is perfectly located for many adventures. I could keep going but other great reviews say it too.... We want to thank Elizabeth for acting as a gracious hostess and Julie for setting everything up for us. Most of all thank you to the owners for sharing their special home. Pandy R.
Thank you Pandy for taking the time to write this review! I am very happy that you and your family enjoyed the home. We hope to have you back again one day.
Excellent with a few exceptions
This home is beautiful. Location is wonderful. Close to everything but not closed in by the high rises of Honolulu. All the included extras: every kitchen gadget you could possibly need, kayaks, beautiful pool, huge TV. Beautiful view and a master bath shower that will have you wanting to remodel as soon as you return home.
Only a couple of drawbacks worth a mention. No AC downstairs could be a problem if it was really hot outside and you are used to full house AC . Once we had the house open for a couple of days the abundance of fans and the trade winds kept it comfortable. The second minor hiccup is that even with three full baths to go with the bedrooms, one of them is downstairs with all three bedrooms upstairs. If you have members of your group who have difficulties with stairs, as we did, this could prove quite an annoyance. Would we return? DEFINITELY!! Just wanted other renters to be aware and let the surprises during your visit to be the magnificent views, both here and around every turn on this beautiful island.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this glowing, accurate and honest review. We hope to have you and your family back again one day!
Great Christmas Vacation
The house was so amazing. Had pretty much everything we needed, age range of travelers from 28-78. All rooms were excellent, master bedroom/bathroom with lanai was incredible. 3 full shower/bathrooms in the house (+1 outdoor shower) so never any issue finding a bathroom or a shower.
The 3 kayaks were great, definitely recommend making a trip out to the blue hole for some snorkeling...we saw 4 or 5 turtles there and just as many fish as you can see at Hanauma Bay without the crowds or the lines.
The pool was great as is the kitchen and patio area. We ate a majority of our meals at the house but it is a relatively short drive into Waikiki for some more action, or to the excellent restaurants at the Kahala. Grocery stores just a few minutes away.
Beach out in front of the house is not fabulous, water is very shallow with lots of rock and coral until you reach the surf (which is a long way out there). But we spent all of time up at the pool when we weren't in the kayaks or snorkeling, so it was no problem for us.
Thank you for your very enthusiastic review. We are so pleased you enjoyed our home and were successful in finding the "blue hole" for snorkeling on the reef and got to swim with the turtles.
Another of your group left a very nice note in our guestbook, I hope she does not mind if I quote. "Three generations enjoyed all of the amenities - the yard, the beach, comfortable beds and plenty of room to relax. We can see why it is your favorite place in the world... We have been back [to Hawaii ] many times but this was by far the best!".
We thank you for leaving everything so tidy, please come again.
We brought 4 people including two newly weds - When we chose the house on line - We really didn't have alot of time. We just saw 3+3 and the rice was good so we chose it- When we walked in, well, t is an amazing house!!! Every detail so thoroughly thought out. We are chefs, my husband and I, in the kitchen was EVERYTHING you could want!!! The bedrooms all perfect - Master bedroom/ bath a dream. Swimming pool perfect... Well this is getting boring - Just AMAZING!!!!
Star/planet gazing from the Lanai. Telescope supplied! Fish from beach or reef, kayak along reef or to Marina or Kahala Mandrin hotel for dolphin shows (free) and pool-side bar. We are directly on bike path to Waikiki or Hawaii Kai .
