About Jacqueline

House was originally designed and built by owner's husband, an award winning architect in 2008, for our family. We renovated in 2013 and continually update to keep the house beautiful for our guests.

Jacqueline purchased this house in 2008

Why Jacqueline chose Honolulu

Simply paradise. Private, sophisticated, quiet location yet very close to bustling Waikiki and Oahu's fabulous outdoor activities.

What makes this house unique

Elegance, privacy, something very special. Tall ceilings, huge rooms, floor to ceiling windows looing out on a tropical paradise and beautiful natural free form pool designed to recall the temple ponds in Kyoto. Approximately 3 1/2 blocks to the ocean/beach in Kahala and also about 3 blocks to the Kahala Mall. Famous Hanauma Bay is about 15 minutes to the east of us along the H-1 highway.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from Australia to Hawaii to meet our Canadian friends half way to celebrate a 40th. WIth 2 families of 5 we wanted to stay together as we only had a week and we wanted it to be quality time. Kahala House could not have been more perfect. We all relaxed in this incredible house and everyone had space but at the same time we had plenty of room to come together for meals, relaxing by the pool watching the kids, kicking back after kids had gone to bed. Just as perfect was how easy it was to get to everything. Less then 10 mins into Waikiki and the perfect location to base ourselves to explore the beauty of Oahu. We did a huge grocery shop at the Whole Foods Market on our first day which is just down the road and we cooked beautiful healthy meals all week without having to relay on resturants which meant the kids were able to relax at the house while we enjoyed a wine and conversation while preparing dinner. Tony and Jacqueline were incredibly helpful both before and during the trip with sharing information and answering questions. I could not recommend this property more highly for the perfect holiday with a larger group.

We loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express enough how much we enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. We were a large extended group (my husband and I and our two young children; my mother, aunt, and grandmother; and a family friend) and we always felt we had our privacy as well as enough space. We loved that everyone had their own bathroom and we did not have to take turns to use the bathroom! The house is spotless and elegantly decorated. Kahala is a wonderful area to stay in and is close by everything. When we are fortunate to return to Hawaii again, we will definetly want to stay here!

All around PERFECT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came from Calgary Canada for a 10 night stay and everything was perfect. We had 12 guests with more then enough room for everyone and lots of parking. The house is beautiful in so many ways and has all the ammentities one can ask for and then some. Even with 12 people it felt empty with lots of space and differnet living area's to enjoy. Slide all the full size glass doors open and its your own oasis and feels very secluded sitting around the custom pool. The Kahala area is one of the finest on the island and everything is very close and easy to get to, its all just minutes away, the beach, the airport, waikiki, haunama bay, great shopping, grocery, spa's, surfing, padle board, golf, exotic car rentals, you name it, its there! The owners were great to deal with and very accomadating answering any questions we had and everything was as stated. We hosted a small wedding off site and planned everything on line and it went great, we got married down the road on the beach then we came back to the house for pictures and appy's, then to waikiki for the night. Everyone just loved the house!

10 STARS!!!

Outstanding property, we had 2 families stay at this very spacious and well outfitted home, space was well designed and we never felt cramped. Attended a destination wedding in Honolul and we had a great time staying here, very central and accessible to the hway so that we can get anywhere quickly. Loved the stereo throughout, TV's and appliances that accomodated a group of 9 very easily. Tony was very helpful and accomodating to our needs, Jaqueline was very prompt in setting up our reservation and responsive to any questions we had. Looking forward to returning soon. Highly recommended, we LOVED it.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this magnificent house. Our party of 10 (5 couples) just loved the modern and luxurious, yet relaxing feeling of the house.

The position was wonderful. A few minutes walk to the beach and Kahala resort and a few minutes walk to Kahala shopping mall which has a great Whole Foods store for all your food needs. About $15 for taxi to Waikiki.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with.

Cannot recommend this highly enough.
