About the property

5 Star Accomodations! Incredible views, fantastic location!

Enjoy gorgeous unobstructed ocean, marina & mountain views from our luxurious newly built guest house. Located on the ridge, in a safe, quiet and upscale neighborhood in Hawaii Kai, East Honolulu, just around the corner from famous Hanauma Bay, Halona Blow Hole, spectacular Sandy Beach and more! Sea Life Park, Makapuu Beach and Waimanalo Beach are all about 10 minutes away.

Hawaii Kai has something for everyone: beaches, parks, lots of ocean activities, fun hikes of different levels, a great variety of restaurants, movie theaters and shopping. Farmer's markets, supermarkets, beauty salons, gyms, various services, and even Costco are all within 5 minutes. You can be in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki in 20 minutes and at the airport in 40 minutes.

This beautifully appointed open concept residence, is light, airy, pleasant and immaculate! A private entrance takes you through a cozy garden, down a few steps, to a welcoming deck and your front door. As soon as you come in, you can enjoy the fantastic view that you can admire from almost every room! With a complete kitchen with gas stove and oven, a full size refrigerator, and long granite counter-tops; you can cook as much or as little as you like. We have a tall dining table set where you can sit and marvel at the view while you enjoy your meals. In front of a big window, you will find a nice area that you could use as a desk. The breezy open concept living room area includes a comfortable sleeper sofa, coffee table, armchairs and TV.

The main bedroom has gorgeous views as well! You can watch the sunrise as well as the moonrise from your luxurious queen size bed. Although there is always a nice breeze, there is a ceiling fan for your comfort as well as an air conditioner unit. This bedroom is separated from the main living area by a half wall to maximize view and airflow.

The second bedroom also has a very comfortable queen size bed and an air conditioner unit. This bedroom is perfect for those who prefer to sleep in a darker room, it has no ocean view, but it does have a door that separates it from the main living area.

High quality, white, 100% cotton linens are used for all beds.

The bathroom is super clean, large and convenient. The shower has great water pressure and hot water. Clean 100% cotton towels are also supplied for every guest.

An efficient washer and dryer unit for your own use is also inside the guest house.

This vacation retreat is equipped with high quality 100% cotton linens, towels, cookware, china, silverware, and more. Even boogie boards, snorkel sets, beach umbrella, beach towels and beach chairs! We have even installed a safe for your peace of mind.

Fast and reliable wireless internet, digital cable TV service with DVR that allows you to record, pause, and play your favorite movies and shows, 175 channels, and a pivoting 47' Vizio LCD TV that lets you watch from the living area and bedroom.

You will love staying at our guest house. It is peaceful, private, immaculate, and just beautiful! My husband, daughter and I live in the main house.

About Claudia

Aloha,

We are a family of three who loves our home and living in Hawaii. We have lived in Honolulu for over 25 years. The weather, the ocean, the sites, the incredible beaches, the flowers, the hula, the music, the fragrant breezes... and the wonderful people. Have I mentioned we love Hawaii? We know you'll love it here too.

Why Claudia chose South Oahu

We chose to buy property in Hawaii Kai because it is beautiful, fun, safe, convenient, and affluent but with an overall casual and comfortable vibe. We are close enough to downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, but far enough that we always feel we are on vacation. We have everything we need just five minutes away: restaurants, movie theaters, grocery stores, shops, hikes, and some of the most beautiful beaches of the island!

We chose this particular property up on the ridge because of the gorgeous views, the spaciousness, the light, and the privacy.

After living in the main house for 12 years, we decided to have the guest house built for visiting family and friends.

What makes this house unique

What a gorgeous place! Our guest house is private, quiet and peaceful. Ocean breezes keep you cool and comfortable. The fantastic view will remind you how lucky you are to be vacationing in Hawaii.

Location as shown

  • 5 of 5

While we didn't get the colors in our sunrise we still enjoyed watching the sun come up every morning, the winds were fantastic. Claudia was very nice and helpful. Liked the personal touch of it being right beside the owner, and all of the personal items left for our use. We did not have any problems but we left feeling that if anything had come up they would have taken care of it right away. This was our first experience ever using VRBO and I learned for us it works better to not use the sleeper sofa as moving around wakes up whoever is sleeping there. Location is very clean and new and just as shown in pictures.

Quiet, Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Claudia's was wonderful! The view is epic, it is very quiet at night, lots of natural light from the sunrise. Claudia greeted us personally and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. She gave us our privacy, and that was much appreciated. The home is in a great area about half an hour from Honolulu called Hawaii Kai. It is more upscale and we never felt unsafe. We explored beaches nearby and went to a luau which was also close by. The weather was a little grey and cold for two days, but we still enjoyed our trip. I would recommend staying with Claudia! One thing to note is that there are not two separate bedrooms. One is closed off without windows and the other bed is in the open concept main room. This was not a problem for us, but may be for some travellers! All in all, would stay again.

Outstanding stay

  • 5 of 5

Excellent home feel with tremendous views. Close enough to attractions but far enough for quiet! Claudia made us feel right at home! Comfortable beds, spacious shower, kitchen fully equipped, clean and roomy. Cool breezes all throughout. We were VERY pleased.

Unbelievable views!

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was everything we needed. The owners were caring & anticipated our needs with providing an assortment of daily items that are difficult to travel with. There was an umbrella, beach towels & chairs, a well stocked kitchen, & the interior was clean & inviting. The view through the immaculately clean windows was spectacular (I immediately noticed & appreciated)!

Our stay was much too short. Kudos for making us feel welcomed & at home.

You might ask if we would return? The answer is YES...in a heartbeat!! Mahalo

A gorgeous location near physical wonders yet close to the city

  • 5 of 5

The reviews are stunning - sunrise filling up the living space and watching storms come over and past the mountains. Claudia and Kevin are great hosts who provide nice insights on the better locations and sights to see while providing options for the more touristy activities. The living space is comfortable, very nicely appointed and a great feel to return of a day of sightseeing and exploring. The type of place where one could either spend an entire vacation reading, lounging, resting and enjoying the view or be gone the entire day yet return to a comfortable setting to recharge one's batteries. So quiet in the area. Everything you need within 5 minutes by car with quaint bars, a Kona Brewery bar/restaurant, breakfast, and a bar to end the evening. We would go back in a minute. This location will never disappoint it is that great.

Do yourself a favor!

  • 5 of 5

This being my first time renting private for a vacation, I was quite apprehensive about it. That all changed when I met Claudia. She was beyond accommodating, courteous, and most of all welcoming. I told her on my last night that I will become a regular when visiting Oahu from now on.

As for the property itself, WOW! The property was immaculate. Everything you would ever need was already furnished. But if you needed something, it was located very close to two shopping centers. Lots of natural lighting. Big windows to let the island breeze flow through the guest house. The most important advantage to those windows was the view. The view of Koko Head from the guest house was SPECTACULAR! Let's not forget about the morning sunrise. Have your cameras ready!

If you're looking for a nice, quite, and peaceful place to stay in Oahu, do yourself a favor and stay HERE! You won't regret it.
