Honolulu house description

Seaweeds is a beachfront home originally built in 1933. Our great-grandparents bought and updated this charming beach house in 1949 turning it into their full-time island home. Five generations later, our family continues to enjoy Seaweeds as often as we can. Now the newest generation has taken over and with this change comes some wonderful updates.
Seaweeds offers ‘ohana’ or family-style relaxed living the old Hawaiian way. There is a large open living room and dining room with beautifully restored original redwood floors. A very large screened lower lanai. The kitchen is fully outfitted for all your cooking needs.
Located 25 minutes from the airport, the 3 bedroom 2 ½ bathroom home has an ocean side master bedroom with a king size bed and adjacent bath. Oceanside Bedroom #2 contains a king bed or 2 twin beds upon request. This bedroom also has an adjacent full bath. Bedroom #3 has a full size bed plus a twin bed and an adjacent ½ bath. It overlooks the large front yard and beautiful old mango tree. All bedrooms have air conditioning. There is also a wonderful outdoor shower … usually the most popular shower at the house!

It is rare to find a beachfront home located on an over-sized lot centrally located to many of the island’s famous beaches, golf courses and restaurants. Hanauma Bay (5min.), Kahala Mall (5min.), Waikiki Beach (10min.), Bishop Museum (15min.), Lanikai Beach (20min.) Iolani Palace (15min) and Pearl Harbor (20min.) are all within an easy drive from Seaweeds.

We have caretakers; a delightful couple who will answer all of your questions and get you directions to anywhere on the Island you wish to go.

This gorgeous setting is conducive to relaxation and rejuvenation. The large private front yard is planted with plumerias, bird of paradise, ginger, ferns, banana trees, and our very large and gracious old mango tree. If you are there in season, it produces perhaps the best tasting mangoes on the island.
Beachside offers fabulous views of the ocean. Take a nap on the Hawaiian 'Hiki’e' (daybed) on the enclosed lanai cooled by the trade winds, or lie on one of the beachfront chaise lounges and sip tropical drinks. Enjoy grilling your dinner and dine under the stars.
If you feel more energetic, take one of the on-site kayaks for a paddle in the reef-protected bay. Beaches in the islands are public. A 5-minute stroll will lead you to a beautiful swimming area or the Kahala Hotel where you can check out the dolphins, enjoy a cup of coffee, full breakfast, brunch, lunch, cocktails or dinner. Adjacent to the Kahala Hotel is the Waialae Country Club, home of the Sony Open (January). If your trip is well timed, you might be able to follow your favorite golfer. In December, the Honolulu Marathon runs on the road in front of the house. Join in or cheer the runners on.

While we no longer live full-time on Oahu, our hearts remain here. We return regularly to relax and visit old friends, and enjoy the beauty and spirit of Hawaii. This is our home away from home, filled with years of wonderful memories. We take pride in keeping our family home clean and well maintained.
