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.

About Claudia

Aloha,

We are a family of three who loves our home and living in Hawaii. We have lived in Honolulu for over 30 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 Hawaii Kai

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.

Perfect accommodations and wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for better accommodations during our weeklong stay in Oahu over the Christmas holiday. My husband and I were traveling with my parents on their first trip to Hawaii, and the guest house was perfect for us. Claudia was a wonderful host who gave us a warm welcome upon arrival, and was always available if we needed anything (which we didn't, as the guest house is immaculately clean and perfectly appointed). Hawaii Kai is a terrific home base to explore the island, with plenty of conveniences just a short drive away. It was a joy to wake up to stunning views of Koko Head every morning. We hope very much to come back!

Best location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our little home away from home. So glad we were not in the crowds and traffic of Waikiki. This is the perfect location with amazing views and it had everything we needed.

Beautiful sunrises!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to stumble across this VRBO offer and found every previous positive review to be spot on. Claudia's guest house delivers a gorgeous view of Koko Crater and beautiful sunrises. The property is easy to get to, clean and comfortable. Claudia provided snorkel equipment, chairs, umbrella and boogie boards for the beach. After visiting Waikiki, I'm glad this was available as I preferred this quiet neighborhood to enjoy the sunrises. It's close to numerous activities and local restaurants. Claudia met us on check-in, ran through the property amenities and then was gracious enough to answer all of our questions about what was the best of Oahu. This property has two queen beds that accommodated four adults. It is relatively small but well laid out with kitchen, table and living area combined. This neighborhood seemed very clean and safe for all. I highly recommend staying here. May 14-21, 2018

A hidden gem in Oahu

  • 5 of 5

Claudia’s place is the perfect platform to explore Oahu. The sweeping views of Koko Crater, and the mountains, the fresh breeze, sunlight and sunrise everyday, and above all - the attention to details - all made our trip special.

The place is cozy and well appointed.

Claudia greeted us herself and helped us with each and little request we had.

Thank you Claudia! We will return.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. Claudia was so welcoming and thought of everything to make our stay at her guest house as comfortable as possible. We loved waking up to the sunrise, looking out at Koko crater while drinking our coffee, and listening to the wind at night. The house is in a quiet spot that is a great distance from Waikiki and downtown Honolulu without all the hustle and bustle. Would definitely stay again! Thanks again Claudia!

Wonerful apartment with great views

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Claudia's apartment.

We were only there for 4 nights and wished it could have been much longer.
