Why Leanne & Jeff chose Tantalus

When we first found this home, the VIEW took our breath away. Absolutely unobstructed view – from mountain to the sea...

The house is a quintessential Hawaiian home designed by architect Charles W Dickey. Its characteristics include high ceiling and large windows throughout, large overhang with a high pitch roof . Bright ,airy , well ventilated and naturally cool. It has been perfectly renovated with new roof and ceiling; rewired and painted ; recessed lights and fans installed....... The house is off street and you will be greeted by many birds and cute lizards . You will love it.

Great View! Quite the hill to trek to the house!

  • 4 of 5

3 couples rented this house and the views were just amazing! It was quite a hike up and down the hill as we didn't have 4 wheel drive. Leanne and Jeff were very helpful. We really had a great time there.

Great location and views

  • 4 of 5

Accommodation provides great base out of downtown Honolulu/Waikiki with stunning views both in the day and at night. Well ventilated and clean and simple. Steep drive is a real challenge but can leave vehicle at the top without the issues!
