The 'Gingerbread House' was designed 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 personal 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. We have just had our salt water pool installed and we love it as much as the ocean across the street!
The Gingerbread house is built on 3 levels with split A/C and has 4 bedrooms, with queen size luxury pillow-top mattresses adorned with Italian bedding. The downstairs bedroom also has a queen sofa bed for additional comfort and additional sleeping quarters. Tasteful art and accessories compliment each bedroom as well as flat screen televisions. 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.

Why Veronica Worth chose Kahala
The Historic Gingerbread House is located on prestigious Kahala Avenue where the rich and famous have lived for generations. Unlike the newer homes which are built all the way out to the edge of their lots, this home still has the charm and elegance of old Hawaii.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Just 20 minutes from Honolulu International Airport we are in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the State, just minutes from Kahala Mall, home to Whole Foods, Macy's and Long's Drug store and many other stores as well as Kahala Theaters and several restaurants.

The best time!
We had a fantastic family holiday at the Gingerbread House. Sandy was there to check us in and she was so nice and the house had everything you could want. The kitchen was well-stocked with appliances, utensils, and crockery, there was ample linen and the beds were super comfortable, the pool and hot tub were amazing, there was so much space inside and out for the 8 of us and the location was perfect. We didn't bother with a car-we just ubered/taxied everywhere.
Thank you Veronica and Sandy for making this much-anticipated birthday trip as wonderful as I had hoped for. We didn't want to leave.
Perfect for families
Our families were all together for the week of my wedding and it was just a lovely house to stay in the entire time we were in Oahu.
The house has all the essentials you would need and it has a nice, tranquil vibe in the neighborhood. It's not too far from Waikiki and the closest mall and grocery store is just 5 minutes away. The beach is across the street down a path -- a frequent spot that my family visited every morning during our week there.
Sandy, the property manager, was a pleasant and wonderful to have around when we needed her! We had some issues with the hot tub and she had someone come by to fix it the next day.
I highly recommend staying here if you want a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of the city. My families are already talking about renting the Gingerbread House again for upcoming wedding anniversaries!
Our family had an amazing week at the Gingerbread House!
It exceeded expectations with a beautiful pool, hot tub and outdoor living area to grill and dine; beautifully stocked kitchen (we ended up eating in much more than I expected), and lots of private areas for our two children who had babies with them. Plenty of amenities including pool toys and towels. Sandy, the manager, was very accommodating and helpful. I’ve been to Hawaii three times and this was by far the best way to go!
Perfect location and fabulous tropical backyard oasis that accommodates multi-generational family
Our family was celebrating my California daughter's graduation from University of Hawaii. Veronica and Sandy were wonderful, the house is unique, and the backyard is spectacular (complete with a Koi/lily fountain and a very giving Mango tree)! We BBQ'd, walked the beach to the Kahala Hotel to watch the dolphin and walked to Waikiki while shaded by Diamond Head! I speak for the 8 of us who had the pleasure of enjoying this historic property, "We will be back!" This was one of our best family vacations.

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
