About Edgar Miner
I grew up in Newport Beach/Costa Mesa California, and graduated from Corona del Mar High School in 1966 and served in the Air Force from 1968-72. Then back to school at the University of Calif at Irvine and graduated in 1975. I was a lifeguard in the summers from 1966 to 1979 except for the AF years. I had many sales jobs from selling Armor All Protectant at its introduction to the market to selling DryWall for US Gypsum. In 1981 I became the first Sales Manager of Quiksilver USA as Surf/Sportswear manufacturer and several years later started my own consulting and manufacturing company for other surf companies. By the ninties I was hooked on the interned and turned to consulting for Internet Start-Ups. In 1998 I moved to Hawaii and started my current career, as a Realtor. I still surf and golf on a regular basis and have taken to doing Stand Up Paddling so I can enjoy a totally different water experience. I have the heart of a servant and love helping my guests with whatever they may need.
Edgar Miner purchased this House in 2005
Why Edgar Miner chose Hawaii Kai
Aloha! Lynn and I purchased "Hale Hawaii Kai" in June of 2005. I had rented the house since March of 2000. I started the gardening as a renter and immediately upon purchasing the house put the landscaping in HIGH GEAR. We also added a pool and hot tub. I have photos of Lynn on the excavator digging the pool and...she is good! We renovated the entire property inside and out: paint, cabinets, eaves, bathrooms and wardrobes. This property is the LOVE OF MY LIFE, next to Lynn! We enjoy our guests' holidays almost as much as they do. We enjoy taking them surfing, SUP, kayaking and hiking. Anything my guests need is a Priority for Me and I get things done quickly.

There are beautiful cliffs to climb and great surf just 1 minute from the front door! Walking in the neighborhood you will see some of the most beautiful homes on the island.

Great place for family
This was a great place for the whole family to come together yet have their own space. It was very homey and comfortable. The location is fantastic and Edgar and Hana were great. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub.
My grandkids loved the pool and the hot tub. The view was amazing, we ventured to the China Walls every evening to watch the beautiful sunset. The location of the property is very convenient to all of the activities that we had planned. The house easily accommodated our large family. Edgar was very eager to help us with any recommendations or questions. We had a wonderful holiday!
Danny, I loved having you and your family stay with us. You have such a wonderful group of young men and women that you can be proud of. Hana and I are envious. Wishing you the very best, Go Bless. Edgar
Great Hawaii Kai location
Edgar was great to deal with. House is in a great location. Very close to lots of different places.
"This Place is a Dump"
I rented this property because this trip was very important to our extended family. We were having our mom/grandmother's memorial and the entire family was gathering.
My sister was the first to arrive at the home. She called me immediately. Her first words to me were "this place is a dump" . What she was in the driveway were 9 garbage cans and junk in the driveway including a broken VW bus. She told me it was in a beautiful neighborhood, but this house I rented "was a dump". I was in shock. I was hoping she arrived at the wrong house. Nope, she had the right house. Fortunately, the inside of the house is accurately portrayed in the listing pictures. However, pictures don't tell the whole story.
I brought 16 family members to live together and be part of the memorial. A gathering of the tribe so to speak. However, part of my family was so horrified by the dirt and bugs and someone's dirty diapers, that part of my family left and got a hotel room in Waikiki. Our family memorial was sadly tarnished and our family was torn asunder. This is not what I had pictured or expected when I rented our Hawaiian Shangri- La
We are located right in front of Hawaii Kai, just 1 mile from Hanauma Bay, at the tip of Koko Head facing Diamond Head and in the evening we can see the City Lights of Kahala and Honolulu. We are 20 minutes to Waikiki and 30 minutes to Kailua. Located on the South Shore of Oahu.
