Honolulu house description
Your Hawaiian home is located within view of Diamond Head and Waikiki and a short drive to several beaches. You will spend most of your time on the outdoor oversized covered lanai enjoying the views, resting and enjoying the sparkle of Oahu. You will see many rainbows in the valley as well as watch the day turn into night as the city lights twinkle in the sky. Every room has a great view.
Your home was designed by a Hawaiian architect to take advantage of the marvelous views. The walls disappear and open to a lanai where you can live outside and take advantage of the scenery of Hawaii. You can take a swim in the full length pool, relax on the lanai while watching the spectacular Friday evening fireworks and enjoy a home barbecue or take in an evening in Waikiki.
Families feel at home in their Hawaiian home with space to spread out on three different levels. Children of all ages have fun playing a wide assortment of board games and video games on a 42” flat screen TV with extended cable channels. The pool house has an assortment of pool toys and floats. When you go to the beach, beach chairs, toys and towels will make your experience even more enjoyable.
Your home has three generous bedrooms. The master (queen bed) is on the main level with adjoining sitting room and his/her bath. There are two bedrooms on the lower level, both have adjoining baths and large outdoor entrances. The first room has a queen bed, a twin and a futon. The second room is great for kids with a bunk bed and twin loft. A beautiful indoor dining room and outdoor dining on the lanai are available for meal times. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances, new granite and stainless countertops and new flooring. A large living space opens onto an even larger lanai. A cozy library has a granite desktop with wireless internet service.
Your location is perfect with many different activities within a short reach: Waikiki Beach, Ala Mona Shopping Center and the Hawaii Convention Center are all about three miles away. The airport and Haunama Bay (World class snorkeling) are each about 10 miles away—in different directions. Pearl Harbor is a 20 minute drive and the North Shore beaches are about a 45 minute drive.
We hope you sense the special "Aloha" of Hawaii and of this home.

Beautiful Home, Great Location!
Beautiful Home, Great Location!
My mom, college roommate and I planned a trip to Hawaii as a graduation present. Due to a last minute emergency, we had to push the trip back one week and were forced to cancel hotel reservations and find a new place to stay. It was a blessing in disguise because we came across this beautiful home on VRBO and could not imagine staying anywhere else. The home was absolutely amazing with breathtaking views of downtown Waikiki. I spent several relaxing hours sitting on the lanai with a book or just looking out into the city. Words cannot describe how beautiful that scenery is (the lanai is definitely a stand out feature from other vacation homes). Also, the location of this home is ideal because you are minutes away from the beach, downtown city life, and tourists attractions, yet far enough away to feel relaxed and secluded when you’ve had enough of the crowds. Same goes with the temperature: it is very hot near the beach and downtown which is fine while you are there, but when you are drained from the sun, the higher elevation of the house awaits you with a much cooler atmosphere and gentle breeze. The owner, Monica, was so great with communication, as the other reviews have mentioned, and she really helped everything run smoothly with such a short notice trip. She takes the extra steps to assure that this home becomes your home during the duration of your stay. She left books about the area that aided in finding activities while we were there. The cabinets were stocked with food (as mentioned in the previous review). We were able to use the beach towels, snorkeling equipment and floats that she left for us. Complete hospitality all around! If I ever plan a trip to Honolulu/Waikiki Beach again, this home will be first on my list for available dates of booking! If you get the opportunity to rent from her, do it! You will not regret it!

Amazing Vacation Home!
Amazing Vacation Home!
We found this beautiful home on VRBO and could not be more pleasantly surprised with what we got. My husband and two young sons and myself were visiting family for a week over the 4th of July holiday. The panoramic views from the lanai of Diamond Head and downtown Honolulu were just breathtaking. The house was the perfect gathering place for many a wonderful meal with enough table service and seating for our large group of fifteen. It really gave us a chance for family members to spread out, the kids enjoying the pool, x-box games and ping pong table and the adults relaxing in the living room or on the comfortable lanai; really having the chance to visit with one another. We even enjoyed fireworks from that lanai on the 4th. The house was clean and well kept and well appointed. Monica, the owner, was fabulous at communicating and responded promptly to all of my e-mails. There was free wi-fi available. There were also a washer and dryer available for use along with provided detergent/fabric softener. The pantry was stocked with food items and spices which Monica encouraged us to use. We were able to park our car in the garage, they had an automatic garage door opener with covered parking for one car and ample parking for cars on the street or in the driveway. We had three extra cars visiting us. I must say she really made us feel most welcome and was very gracious in our dealings with her. This house really made our trip to Hawaii to visit with family extremely special and for that I thank you Monica and family for making your wonderful home available to us. We would stay again in a heartbeat if the chance ever came up again and would definitely recommend this place to close friends and family.

We can't wait to rent this house again!

My husband, mother and three young children (age 3, 7 and 9) rented this beautiful home (after discovering it on VRBO). The homeowners are truly amazing-a really nice family; good people. The house is situated at the very top of the hill (it's just rain forest behind you!) in a nice neighborhood just 10 minutes drive from Waikiki. The lanai you see pictured is even more beautiful in person and is very large -big enough for a large dining room table, sideboard, full outdoor living room set and a ping pong table! The view is breathtaking and this view can be seen from nearly every room in the house as the house is two stories and is designed in a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired manner so the walls facing the view are actually floor to ceiling sliding doors giving you a sense of endless-infinity space in an already spacious home. The master bedroom was lovely and had a cute his and hers bathroom and ample closet space. The girl's bedroom had a queen bed, single bed and a futon couch that pulled out to another double bed. It was decorated with vintage record LPs and black, white and red floral bedding and pillow shams. It had a large walk in closet with a full bathroom. The boy's room had two bunk beds and another futon couch that pulls out to a double bed. It was decorated in military grey, lime green and royal blue. It had a flat screen TV and X-box player which my son was addicted to (Dad too ;). The boy's room also had a large walk in closet and full bathroom. Upstairs, there was a half bath near the foyer and a beautiful living room with a large flat screen TV and a comfortable office with wifi throughout the house (that actually worked well!). There were two dining room tables (one inside in the dining room and one outside on the lanai). Both seated 6 comfortably with plenty of room for 8-10 squeezed in. The kitchen was a smaller "island kitchen" with stainless steel counter tops and appliances and dark wood cabinets. It opened up right onto the lanai and while it wasn't a giant, spacious "cook's kitchen" it was more than sufficient and had everything we needed. The house is filled to the brim with built in cabinets, drawers, etc. and they had coolers, pool toys, beach towels, snorkeling gear, boogie boards and beach chairs for us to use which made our beach trips great. Last but not least...the pool. Its a very nice pool with chaise lounges and a great size for a private pool. We can't wait to go back and stay in this house again!

Best Vacation Home Ever
Best Vacation Home Ever
From the moment we walked in, we knew our Hawaii vacation this time would be extra special. The location of the house is perfect: it is close to everything (Waikiki, shopping, beach, highway), and the view from the house is breathtaking at ANYTIME. We woke up to the bird's songs every morning, and could hear the sound of tropical plants in pleasant ocean breeze. From every room of the house, we could see the city skyline with the blue ocean & sky as a background. The view at night is awesome and on Friday night, we can see the fireworks from the lanai - our kids loved it. The house is on a hill away above the busy city, in a quite neighborhood. It is cool and pleasant all the time and there are raindrops every now and then - I loved watching the clouds moving in and hearing the sound of the nature. Each room is a suite with its own bath and closets. All the rooms are spacious, all have great view and access to lanai. The lanai is a very comfortable place for eating, reading, gazing... I could be there all day and night long! Kitchen is fully equipped and have everything we needed and more. The owners' collection of mugs (and other things) from all over the world is so neat and special. We traveled with my parents and our 2 small kids. All of us felt at home here and will miss it. The owners are super nice people, they are so helpful and accommodating - providing everything we needed (and more). Thank you Monica, David & family - such a charming and beautiful house - we enjoyed every moment here!

Why the Owner Chose Honolulu:
When my husband and I walked into this house, we knew it was the perfect place for us. We were captivated by the large lanai and breathtaking views. The view makes me feel like I am a part of Diamond Head and Waikiki. This is an amazing home with hidden closets, Koa wood walls, disappearing living room walls that open up onto the Lanai and interesting angles that provide the best view of the city. We have enjoyed this home and I hope you too will sense the beauty and uniqueness of this place.
