About the property

Great Multiple Family Accommodation - w/ 3 levels & 2 kitchens. VIEWS!!!

Great for multi-family vacations in Hawaii. Rimlot is the place for you! 4000+ Interior SQFT, 1 acre of land, 10' ceilings, chandeliers, fireplace, high speed Internet, xBox and 2 flat panel TVs with premium cable package.

We are located in Maunalani (Heavenly Mountain) Heights, which is the hill overlooking Waikiki and Diamond Head. Just 15 minutes to Waikiki and 30 minutes to Honolulu International Airport.

On the Eastern side of Oahu, the Rimlot Estate provides families a place to have a relaxing vacation. This elegant private home is a dynamic indoor/outdoor space with panoramic views. The versatile estate can be customized and arranged to meet your needs.

The house easily accommodates multiple families with separate living areas. The house has 2 kitchens & living rooms, one downstairs and one upstairs. We also have a pack and play & bumbo available.

Rimlot was built in 1936 and remodeled in the 70's. She is in great shape for being almost 80.

*** OUR WATER PRESSURE IS NOT THE GREATEST (~40 PSI) BEING AT THE VERY TOP OF THE HILL, RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE WATER TANK. TODAY'S STANDARD IS ABOUT 60 PSI. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND, ESPECIALLY FOR LARGER GROUPS. YOU CAN EXPECT A 2 MINUTE HOT WATER DELAY ON YOUR MORNING SHOWER. IT TAKES A LITTLE WHILE FOR THE HOT WATER TO WORK IT'S WAY UP 30 FEET FROM THE WATER HEATERS (130 Gallons) IN THE BASEMENT.***

About Beth (Rimlot)

My husband and I have been married for 14 years and have 3 children. We live next door to the main house and share the driveway. As you will see in the video of our vacation rental, we love to spend family time in the pool, walking to the community park and hiking the Mau'umae trail behind our house.

Beth (Rimlot) purchased this estate in 2013

Why Beth (Rimlot) chose South Oahu

Honolulu hilltop homes on an acre of land are a rare and prized possession, typically kept in the family for generations. If families decide to sell during economic good times, the price is seldom realistic. So during the current economic down turn, we saw our opportunity at a reasonable price and bought.

What makes this estate unique

The Aloha spirit and the Hawaiian lifestyle are two of the greatest things found no where else in the world. Aloha is a spirit of friendship and love shared by the residents of Hawaii. It is a genuine affection towards one another and is what makes Hawaii a true melting pot where all nationalities coexist peacefully. The Hawaiian lifestyle is one that revolves around the outdoors, which is right out the back door from this house. Whether you are hiking the trails or heading down to the beach for surfing, fishing, diving, or going for a swim, getting into the great outdoors on a daily basis is what keeps the Hawaiian people young.

Beautiful Estate

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this vacation home is the pool! The only regret is not having enough time to indulge in it as much as possible. The location has many rooms to accommodate multiple families with kids and the neighborhood is quite peaceful. It's perfectly close to all the tourist sites including Waikiki and Diamond Head. It is very convenient to get to the H1 and any local shops. The place is well kept and the owners are very responsive when it came to our questions and concerns. A definitive must stay if you are arranging accommodation for a large group. We had an awesome time and we miss this place already.

Honolulu house with a view

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely home with lots of beds. Great for big groups. Very clean. Pool was nice and you can't beat the view. My son got married in Kahala and we had 10 people. Beth is extremely nice and easy to work with. My husbands only comment was the need for better cooking pans. Other than that would recommend this place very highly!

Owner's Response: Aloha Cathy & John, Thank you so much for your review and letting us know about the cookware. We will improve on that. So glad to hear your son's wedding went well and you guys enjoyed yourselves. Hope to see you and the family again soon. Mahalo, Beth

Waikiki Beach - http://goo.gl/OQ65Z1

The sunset view from 1100 feet, over Waikiki, is stunning. Looking back to the East, into Palolo valley, you see an expansive panoramic view of the Ko'olau mountains and Ka'au Crater. The property is located on one acre at the very top of Maunalani Heights. We have a pool for swimming and an excellent hiking trail that starts 100 feet from our property. The Mau'umae Trail hike is a 7.4 mile out-and-back trail that features wild flowers, serenity and tropical fruit. The trail is rated as difficult (at parts) and accessible year round. We have a great community park with a basketball and tennis court. There is also a large field and playground for the little ones.
