Charles C. Frost purchased this house in 2006

Why Charles C. Frost chose Waialae - Kahala

The first time I came to Honolulu I couldn't take my eyes off those houses on the ridges overlooking the Freeway. Dazzled by the views of the ocean and of Diamond Head from every direction, I couldn't help thinking, 'What must the view be like from up there?' Three years later the contractor who implemented my son's renovation plan for this house exclaimed about its 'billion-dollar view.' Today, cooled by the refreshing tradewinds, my husband and I study, cook, hike, swim and entertain, enjoying that view from every room, from the lanais and from the pool. Our guests who come to 'do Hawaii' often find that this designer-renovated house is itself a destination.

What makes this house unique

Relax in spacious, comfortable surroundings open to a breathtaking view of sea, sky and Hawaii's iconic Diamond Head. Enjoy the green below you as you view the lushly landscaped Waialae Country Club golf course lined with strands of coconut palm, monkey pod and kiawe trees. Watch the tropicbirds and egrets soaring by. And, of course, the ships crossing Maunalua Bay. Truly refreshing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is extremely easy to write a rave review about the accommodations afforded by this vacation home. The views are spectacular of the ocean as well as the lush vegetation of the golf course and surrounding areas. Diamond Head is a view by itself, and a recommended activity is to climb to the top for a more amazing view. There were five in our party, and the rooms with the lanais were very quiet and restful. Downtown Honolulu, golf course, beaches, and sightseeing are readily available. We would love to own this home and stay year-round.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Charles is a great man! Communication with Charles is on top. It's a great house. We rented it for business purposes and suited our needs 100%. We extended the stay a few times and there was never a problem. Thank you again for hosting us!

great location and excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

just spent a very pleasant couple weeks at jan & charlie's place. the pool house being an entirely separate unit was ideal for our situation, two couples part of the same large family. the multi-level layout, although you will get a (perhaps needed) stair workout, was actually ideal for providing different spaces for different people at different times, while the large kitchen and main living/dining area is great when everyone is hanging out together for meals, etc. the house has a lived-in and very casual feel, which is very welcoming and easy to get used to; we felt like it was "our place" pretty much right away. great closet back of the master bath for laying out a suitcase. well-appointed kitchen; we did a fair amount of cooking, and didn't lack for any equipment.

a big part, however, of what made our trip special is the hosts, jan & charlie, who were very helpful, and responsive to our every need. we hope to be able to visit them again when the kids are a bit older.

Owner's Response: It was a great pleasure to host Jody's family group. We had a number of enjoyable interactions with them. They were charming, cooperative and left the place clean. Jody even shared some of his delicious recipes with us. We would be delighted to have them return.

Super Service & Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for several weeks as lodging for a team of field engineers in town on an installation project and was delighted that Charles was extremely helpful before and after their stay. Although I never visited the location, the engineers shared that they loved it there. The location was PERFECT - close but not too close. The amenities and layout provided the space and privacy they needed to make their stay pleasant and memorable. If necessary, we will definitely return in the future and would certainly recommend to friends and relatives!

Honolulu, HI

I highly recommend this beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We live on Oahu so we decided to book this home to celebrate and host our family visiting for our daughter's high school graduation. Our family of 8 stayed for 8 nights and found it not only as advertised but better; a quiet location, with amazing scenic views, yet near the beach and other great activities. Everything in the house was perfect. It is very clean, the kitchen was very well equipped and the pool was fun. The sitting and dining room were perfect for our family to enjoy daily home-cooked meals provided by the visiting grandmothers. Waking up every morning to the open and well ventilated house, then stepping out into the lanai to take in the magnificent view of Diamond Head and the rest of the island really made or family's first trip to Hawaii memorable. Best of all, you can enjoy the amazing views from all three levels of the house. There is also a Whole Foods, Times Supermarket, and Kahala shopping mall only 3 minutes away. This place exceeded our expectations; the home is extremely comfortable and well appointed. Charles and his sweet wife went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Their generosity and thoughtfulness went beyond being excellent hosts; they even presented our daughter with a nice card for graduation...Thank you Charles and Jan!! I highly recommend this place and would definitely choose this home again whenever visiting Hawaii.

Bucket List Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Who knew when we booked a trip to Oahu we would be crossing Hawaii off of my 85-year-old mother’s bucket list but also have the privilege of being treated as family by our wonderful hosts, Jan and Charley? This home is magnificent and very spacious! The pictures are highly accurate in depicting a well-kept, warm and inviting home but those pictures simply do not do the magnificent views justice. It was a breathtaking experience to wake up each morning and step foot out on the deck and absorb the beauty of this island from a beautiful home on the hill. The large and well-equipped kitchen afforded us opportunities to prepare our own meals and relax after a busy day of sightseeing or outings to the beach. Even though there were only four family members on this trip, we could spread out between the three different levels and have our own privacy yet come together in the living/kitchen area to share family time and/or meals. Our mother stayed on the main level which was one flight of steps down from the street and she didn’t have any difficulty with the stairs at all. The rest of our family agreed with a previous reviewer in that the rest of the steps were great exercise to work off delicious food and drink of the island. If you have the time and are so inclined, take some time to chat with your hosts. They are the some of the most gracious and interesting people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. They recommended a great restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast, dinner and several happy hours. They are very knowledgeable about the area and can point you in the right direction for most anything you would want to do! They even took family pictures for us when we headed out to a luau one evening. The home was perfectly situated so that any tourist spot or the beach was only a short drive away. It was nice to come home to the peaceful quiet neighborhood after a hectic, fast-paced day at Waikiki Beach. I would recommend this rental home to anyone and I definitely plan to return to Oahu one day and I will look no further than Jan and Charley’s home for the perfect place to stay.
