About the property

Studio-Walk to beach

This is a listing for the studio apartment and not the entire house. The entire house, 4 bedroom with 5.5 baths is available to rent but very limited dates.

Wonderful property in Kahala just a minute walk to the beach. 10 minute walk to Waialae Country Club for Sony Open.

This is a unique property. It is furnished in wonderful antiques from Paris and New Orleans as well as the Pacific rim. The house was built in 1939 and renovated in 1999 and then again in 2007 by owner who is an artist. You can wake up and take a swim in your private salt water pool or take 1 minute walk to beach with a long expansive beach and walk to Kahala Hotel for breakfast or cocktails.

We are close to the best of everything Honolulu and Waikiki have to offer….beaches, surfing, fabulous restaurants, shopping, museums. 15 minute drive to world famous Hanauma Bay. Hiking inside Diamond Head Crater is 5 minutes away….just 1 minute walk from Kahala beach, very close to The Kahala Hotel, Waialae Country Club and Golf Course, venue for Sony Open every January.

Only 2 houses from beach, literally a 1 minute walk. About 3-4 minutes to Kahala Mall(and the new Whole Foods organic grocery!!!) and Waikiki, great golf,the best exercise walk along ocean to surf look outs and Diamond Head hiking trails, surfing, tennis and restaurants.

No solicitation calls.

Beautiful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the property and it was very nice. The owners couldn't be more accommodating and pleasant. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed ourselves in and around the area. My daughter who lives in Honolulu would visit us at night and the owners were welcoming to her small dog during the visits. This is an example of 'accommodating' the owners graciously extended to us. The unit is clean and very comfortable. My only suggestion to the owners is to put some type of table - coffee table or something - in the unit. However, as you can tell if this is the only recommendation I can make, it is fabulous 'as is' as well. I want to thank John and Ann for being such gracious hosts. Good luck to the family with their new store as well!

Awesome house for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 9 recently stayed here and had a wonderful experience. We covered all age groups. Family of 5 with small children stayed in the upstairs rooms. Young couple of 2 stayed in the main floor bedroom. Grandparents stayed in the separate Ohana suite. We were on Oahu for a destination wedding and this house worked perfectly for us. We had extended family over several times for Dinner and swimming. House location is convenient access to all major sightseeing ventures, but also offers relaxation away from the hubbub of Waikiki and Honolulu. The staff was great and wiling to work with us on arrival and departure times. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone coming to Oahu.

Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed at this beautiful home (including 4 teenagers), which seemed even roomier than the online pictures show. The house is nicely decorated with beautiful colors and artwork. Everything we needed was there....beach towels, bikes, etc etc. We rented a van so it was easy to sight see and go on adventures throughout Oahu. There is a Whole Foods that is just a few minutes away, so that was very convenient. The kitchen and BBQ area were wonderful. The kids had a great time swimming in the salt water pool after being at the beach. The property is very charming!! The only bummer was having to leave.

The property is older but well kept up. The property has everything you need to enjoy Oahu and it is centrally located. It is about a 2 minute walk to the Kahala beach and 3 miles to Waikiki Beach and Resturaunts. The Kahala Mall is 1 1/2 miles away for shopping and groceries.

Owner's Response: The house was built in 1939 and with the recent renovation has preserved the charm of the original house and period while bringing the conveniences of the 21st century to the house. 5.5 baths, modern kitchen, central AC with region controls, totally private heated pool, free-standing ice maker, new SubZero refrigerator freezer, 4 K flat screen televisions, SONOS, kitchen appliances and accessories who will not find in most rentals..

Staying 4 weeks at this house was not enough! We all hated to leave. Everything was perfect. The floor plan works for small and larger groups. It is beautifully appointed with everything you need and everything that pleases your eyes. It has been completely modernized without losing the charm of the "cottage". Not only is it beautiful and comfortable on the inside, it is equally so outside. The outdoor terrace with the wonderful salt water pool is perfectly landscaped for privacy and you feel as though you are in a quiet oasis while still being close to the action of Waikiki. Plus, the beach is only steps away and it is convenient access for driving anywhere on Oahu. My family and I cannot wait to return! I highly recommend this lovely, lovely house!
