~Breezy Spacious and Welcoming Vacation Home~

This Hawaiian home sits up on the mountain with unbelievable, panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Diamond Head, Waikiki, and downtown. Watch sunsets, fireworks, whales, and rainbows from the lanai. Situated only 2 miles from Diamond Head, 2.5 miles from Waikiki, 1.5 miles from Kahala Mall, 8 miles from Hanauma Bay, and 11 miles (20 minutes) from the airport. Minutes to jump on the highway and explore the island. Beautiful beaches surround us.

This lovely and breezy house is furnished with vintage Hawaiian charm. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a tub/shower and one with a shower), a large living room, and a dining room that seats 8. The fully equipped kitchen is a chef’s dream, with a gas cooktop, a double oven, one of which is convection, a dishwasher, and a view. The kitchen has a cute breakfast nook, but you will probably have your coffee on the spacious lanai. The home is equipped with three TV’s, a VCR, a CD/ipod player, internet and boardgames. One bedroom has a king sized bed, one- a queen, one- two twins, and there’s a convertible double futon couch available in the living room. It comfortably sleeps 6-8. We’re equipped with a washer and dryer, detergent included. It has a lovely garden with an outdoor shower for when you get back from beach. Come home and breathe in the fragrance from the mature Plumeria trees which surround the home.

There's one covered parking space and ample street parking is available.

Owners live below on the first floor and can speak English and Japanese.

The unit is on the second floor, and there are 12 stairs up to access it.

There is no air conditioning, but the home stays cool from the well designed cross breezes, fans in all rooms, and solar shades in the living and dining rooms.

Come relax and re-energize in this lovely Hawaiian home, enjoy unbelievable views and live Aloha.

Great view from a beautiful lanai.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay!! Cristin's place had plenty of room for a party of 6 (traveling with a 5 year old and 3 grandparents) Every room was quiet and there was plenty of space for everyone. Kitchen was fully equipped, The Lanai was spacious. Plenty of beach supplies. Washer and dryer helped a ton! Cristin is an excellent host and we all highly recommend it!

We really enjoyed the house! Great views of the diamond head and the ocean! The location is the best, 5min drive to whole foods, and within 20min drive to Waikiki, Haumuna bay and other sightseeing places. The house has everything the family needs. It was a great experience for our first time visit in Hawaii!!

Great stay for 10 days, has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home. The views are wonderful. House has all you need to live, cook (love the large Weber BBQ), relax. Pictures are exactly what you get. The lanai is fantastic for morning, afternoon and dinner. We were here in September, ate dinner there every night at sunset around 6:30, cooler weather and that constant breeze. Weather was warm at high 80's, but a constant breeze and the ceiling fans in every room really made it comfortable. Crisitn is a great hostess, she left us alone unless we needed something and the house really felt like it was ours. I would actually rate this a 4.5, only because there is some traffic noise but we adjusted to it and it did not take away from our enjoyment. On other comments the parking was mentioned, not a big deal just have the passengers exit the car prior to parking. we would stay again.
