Property description

The 'Gingerbread House' was designed in the late 1920's by J. Alvin Shadinger and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a Tudor-French Norman cottage completed in 1931 during the times he was designing similar cottages in the Diamond Head area and was Mr. Shadinger's home for many years. The house has been a location for several movies and television series. It has recently been remodeled and is located just across the street from Kahala Beach.

The Gingerbread house is built on 3 levels with split A/C and has 4 bedrooms, all with queen size luxury pillow-top mattresses adorned with Italian bedding. Tasteful art and accessories compliment each bedroom as well as flat screen televisions with built in DVD. The downstairs bedroom has a lovely view of the backyard fountain and pool. The hardwood floors throughout the home have been refinished and the living area is appointed with modern furnishings which give a clean, understated look letting the beauty of this one-of-a-kind cottage and it's natural surroundings sparkle. The kitchen is designed with professional appliances featuring a Viking gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, separate ice-maker and wine cooler, and dishwasher. The dining room seats 8 and is located just a few steps above the living room and indoor bar area.

The beautifully landscaped back yard features a pool, black tiled spa, covered lanai and a separate gazebo to make this a great home away from home in Hawaii. Just minutes away from Kahala Mall, Hanauma Bay, Ala Moana Shopping Center, and fine dining. Complimentary wireless internet service.

50% deposit is required upon acceptance of reservation with remainder paid 60 days prior to arrival, along with a refundable $3,000 security deposit.

Reservations made less than 60 days before arrival will require a shorter payment schedule, which will be detailed in your reservation agreement.

Rental is available for a minimum of 30 days.
Rates subject to change at any time.

Car: Recommended

Hanauma Bay only minutes away as is Waikiki Beach if you care for a beach with more tourists!! Otherwise, you'll love the secluded and more private beach we have just across the street!

Waikiki is approximately 3 1/2 miles away as is Kapiolani Park.

Less than a mile away is The Kahala Hotel & Resort, home to fine dining, cocktails, dolphin encounters and local entertainment. Formerly known as The Kahala Hilton.

Also less than a mile away and on the way to The Kahala Hotel & Resort is world famous Waialae Country Club, home of the Sony Open Golf Tournament
