Pacific Heights house description
This beautiful two bedroom, one bath home is perched on the side of the mountain (stairs lead up to the home) in fabulous Pacific Heights, just minutes from downtown Honolulu. Pacific Heights is one of Honolulu’s most exclusive and historic neighborhoods. This home has plenty of outdoor spaces (three separate deck areas) to take full advantage of the wonderful breezes through the soaring mango trees, the sweeping views of downtown Honolulu, Punchbowl and the beautiful ocean.
Recently remodeled with modern touches while still keeping its old Hawaii charm. Upgrades include: granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, bamboo and slate floors, a brand new bathroom with jetted tub and vessel sink, new paint, carpet, fixtures and premium home entertainment system with surround sound! Fully furnished with Italian leather chairs, teak and rattan furniture from Indonesia and the Philippines to give it that comfortable island flair. Both bedrooms come with teak beds and plenty of walk-in closet space.
Conveniently located within minutes from everything (beaches, business center, Ala Moana Mall for shopping, great restaurants, bars/clubs, tourist attractions and everything the great metropolitan city of Honolulu has to offer): 10 minutes to the airport, 5 minutes to downtown Honolulu, 10 minutes to Waikiki, 15 minutes to Kailua and 35 minutes to the North Shore. You can be close to all the action and still enjoy the quiet and serenity of your own home away from the madness! It's like going to Los Angeles and staying in the Hollywood Hills.

Exactly What We Expected
Exactly What We Expected
This vacation home was as described. The first trip in and the last trip out with luggage was a slog but we knew that up front. The parking is adjacent to the property perhaps fifteen feet from the stairs; it offers plenty of room to load and unload. Usually we stay on Waikiki Beach when visiting this side of the island but I now prefer this location to Waikiki Beach. The homes proximity to major thoroughfares is very helpful. Mornings sitting out on the deck waiting for the sun to come up were quiet and peaceful. As we arrived late at night the view of Punchbowl was a nice surprise in the morning. Even without air conditioning the combination of breezes and ceiling fans kept the house quite comfortable. We were not there most days however so I can't speak to mid-day temps. If I hadn't seen one of the other properties tenants leave his bungalow I would not have known he was there. I'd stay here again.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Its easy access to the freeway was very convenient and close enough to everything made this an ideal rental. The house was both spacious and tastefully furnished. We would stay here again have already recommended it to friends and family. Great hospitality; this is what Hawaii is all about. Mahalo!

Stunning and Comfortable!
Stunning and Comfortable!
We sooo enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home with its stunning views and comfortable surroundings! It was beyond what we expected! The house was spacious and was more than enough room for our party of four. Along with its decks and outdoor spaces, there were plenty of choices when trying to find your own space to just sit down, relax, enjoy a book or enjoy the scenery. We had everything we needed in the house. And the best bonus is its excellent location! We were literally steps to everything we needed to be either when we wanted to be tourists or when we wanted to feel like locals navigating our way around the city/island. Because the owners live in the same neighborhood, they were especially helpful in giving us advice on where to shop, where to eat etc, as these were the same places they frequented themselves. So it was nice to get a bit of local knowledge injected into our vacation. It was a fantastic, restful experience and we will definitely return and stay in this lovely home!

We spent a week here and it's a great central location to explore Oahu by car. We had a few dissappointments. This property is a subdivided home. The parking wasn't overly convieniant and if you have kids and luggage or are a senior citizen be prepared for a fair climb up steep stairs. The appartment has fans but no aircon which is fine when there is a breeze but it was hot and uncomfortable most of the time. Ants throughout the home, broken dishwasher, the only basin in the bath was blocked and the laundry is coin operated and shared out side. On the upside, large kitchen and nice views.

Owner response: This is a lovely home and we are very forthcoming in our advertisement that it is on shared property, as well as explaining that there are steps to the home as the neighborhood is on a mountain and most of the homes are built on the side of the mountain and you either have to walk up to the main level or walk down to the main level, hence the phrase "It's like living in the Hollywood Hills" in the ad. The property is not advertised as having a dishwasher and as per the agreement they signed, it is clearly marked that there is NO dishwasher. With regard to the blocked basin, we apologized to the guests for the inconvenience and offered them a refund for the inconvenience; we tried to remedy the problem while they occupied the property, however, they wouldn't allow time for the draino to work because they would immediately letthe water run soon after we poured the draino instead of giving it some time to work as per the instructions. Since they checked out, we've done another round of draino and allowed it to sit and work...another group of guests checked in immediately after this group checked out and so far, 2 days into their stay, they have not had a problem with the sink draining. Don't know what was dropped into the sink since there wasn't a problem before this party checked in and there isn't a problem now that this party has checked out. This is a fantastic home in a great location and we continue to have repeat guests at this property and some have even stayed at our other rentals when this is not available.
Perfect Retreat for a Real Hawaii Experience
Perfect Retreat for a Real Hawaii Experience
Having grown up in Hawaii and returning home for a family function, we were looking for a quiet place that was central and comfortable without having to deal with the hassle of Waikiki or imposing on family. This home was perfect and we look forward to staying there again. The location is ideal for both new and long time visitors to Hawaii as well as returnees. It is just minutes north of downtown Honolulu with very easy access to the freeway to Ala Moana, Waikiki and the usual tourist destinations and highway access to the Pali and the Windward side of the island. There are supermarkets very close in addition to plenty of local markets in Chinatown and farmer's markets. The neighborhood is quiet and although the next door neighbors rather close, you seldom hear them. It enjoys the cooler temperature of a higher elevation without the dampness or chill. In fact it is hard to imagine a location that is better suited for just about anything you may want to do on Oahu. The actual house is just a bonus. It is a perfect combination of luxury, comfort and casual island life. It is clear that the owners have spent a serious effort in picking furnishings and decorations that complement the home and location. The rooms are spacious. The bathroom is centered between the bedrooms with a door to each and a whirlpool tub for relaxing after a hard day of being at the beach. We found all the pots, pans and appliances perfect for cooking meals. Our toddler loved to sit on the rugs and just look at the ceiling fans. We found much more than we initially expected and appreciated the experience even more. Pros: a great location, beautiful and comfortable house, amenities for a family Cons: stairs up to the house probably make it difficult for anyone with mobility issues, coin operated washing machine (minor inconvenience), tuck under rock garage stall a little difficult to get in and out off (also minor inconvenience) Overall we loved staying at this house and would not hesitate to recommend staying here to our friends and family. We truly look forward to stay here in years to come whenever we go home.

Lovely Home in great location
Lovely Home in great location
We truly felt like we lived in Hawaii when we stayed in this beautiful 2 bedroom home. the pictures do not do it justice. It's clean, well maintained and spacious, especially with its two outdoor decks. We enjoyed wine & sunsets on those decks. As a family of four, we had more than enough room. It really is close to everything. We will definitely be back.
