About the property

Newly Renovated Studio in the Prestige Portlock Neighborhood

This beautiful cottage, located in an upscale and peaceful neighborhood, is newly renovated with very tasteful design and style! It's a luxurious, high-end home with immaculate technology, top of the line bedding, appliances, furniture, and bathroom - very much like a Boutique Hotel! Its location is excellent for those who want to enjoy the beauty of the island with extra comforts and amenities, away from the hustle and bustle of the city (15 minute drive to Waikiki). The world famous Hanauma Bay (best place for snorkeling) is less than a five minute drive away, and the sunsets are absolutely stunning. There's a small beach two blocks away from the cottage, and there are three shopping centers in the Hawaii Kai area. The closest one is about a 10 minute walk away. Also, a great place to hike, Koko Head, is very close! You can hike up the crater to see the most gorgeous 360 degree view from the top. The cottage space is 720 square feet and fully furnished with high ceilings, high-speed wireless internet, energy efficient a/c, and a top-of-the-line Bose surround-sound system controlled through an iPad. The queen-size bed has a comfy, high-quality mattress and plenty of pillows to go with it! The kitchen is fully stocked with dinnerware, cookware, a coffeemaker, toaster, rice cooker, oven, stove, microwave, and refrigerator. All of the appliances are brand new and energy efficient. A filtered water faucet has been installed in the kitchen for your convenience. There is a bar with 3 leather stools, which makes the kitchen area a fun place to eat, lounge and serve.

The living room has a coffee table, a leather Natuzzi couch (that pulls out to a very impressive queen-size bed), a huge curved-screen tv, satellite cable, a skylight that opens and closes to your liking, and blackout blinds. Towels, toilet paper, shampoo and body wash are provided for you. The washing machine is a new two-in-one system that is also energy efficient, alongside the closet and floor to ceiling mirror.

Last but most definitely not least, the patio has two teak-wood lounge chairs that make it a very enjoyable place to relax and unwind. You can see the view of the Hanauma Bay mountain from here while enjoying the sea breeze, song of birds, and -during the night- the most sparkliest of stars. Ah yes, this is paradise!

About Alon Maor

I love to surf and sail, the ocean is my playground! I am very grateful for the beauty of nature, which is why I chose to raise my children in Hawaii. I have traveled all over the world and enjoy immersing myself in different cultures while sharing experiences with others. As a host I am very friendly and accommodating, I like to keep my living space neat and clean, as well as be respectful of others' space. Life on this island is beautiful and I am happy to be able to share it with people from all over the world!

Alon Maor purchased this studio in 2000

Why Alon Maor chose Hawaii Kai

I fell in love with this side of the island when I first moved to Honolulu in the late 90's. This property is perfect because it's close to such beautiful lookouts and beaches without the hustle and bustle of the city. And there are a handful of really fun surf spots within walking distance of my property, life here is absolutely wonderful!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at this beautiful property. It was relaxing, quiet, clean, new and beautiful, and the owners are very responsive. We have already made reservations to be back next month!

clean, quiet, modern

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed here for the second time. The place is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, in a safe and quiet neighborhood and the owners responded quickly to my need (which was help figuring out the shower.) It is walking distance to the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. I didn't rent a car and was able to easily walk to amenities.

Hawaii Kai done right

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a couple's getaway. The fit and finish is first class and the location is just perfect. A short walk to a sandy beach and even shorter to stairs that allow you to swim and snorkel on a reef just 100 yards away. The property manager was clear in instructions and very attentive to our needs when they arose. We will definitely be back.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful property for 4 nights, wish we could move in! Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, contemporary appliances and technology, and convenient to our nearby family. There is a sense of calm when you enter the cottage. Shopping for groceries is nearby as well as several delicious and fun restaurants. Easy access to major beach activities and far away from the traffic of Waikiki (although you should take a little day trip if you need retail therapy!) We'll be back - Thank you Alon and Imbar!

Beautiful, Brand-New Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect spot for our party of three, including a toddler. It is a small space, but laid out nicely with upgraded finishes that you would find in a home, not a rental unit. Washer/dryer was so convenient and the a/c unit and skylight were amazing to escape the hot, humid Hawaiian weather. It is in a quiet neighborhood, close to restaurants, grocery stores and easy driving to Waikiki. Alon was very responsive and helpful throughout the rental process and during our stay. We will definitely look to stay here again when we come back to visit our family. Thank you, Alon & Inbar!

Our neighborhood has many different views of the mountains and sea, and each one is breathtaking in its own way. The homes here are very upscale and it is a quiet, safe neighborhood. This newly-renovated studio is minutes from beaches, supermarkets, movie theaters, restaurants, hikes, churches, public transport, sight-seeing, ocean sport activities, parks, and much more!

You’ll love this private cottage because of the location, the ambiance, easy parking, the song of birds, the amenities and design, the mountain and ocean breezes, the comfort, we can go on and on!

It's an excellent place to stay for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
