Spectacular View - Luxury Living on a Private Beach Cove


Property Details

Updated: Oct 16, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)



Elegant, Hawaiian style, 4600 sq. ft. home with spectacular ocean views and lush, tropical gardens. Located 100 feet from the ocean in a secluded beach-side community, the home has access to a small, private beach, perfect for putting in a kayak or canoe, or for the more adventuresome, boogie boarding or surfing an advanced, local surf break. An infinity pool and spa offer quiet relaxation in the beautifully landscaped backyard overlooking the ocean.

Perched at the end of a private, dead end lane, the house looks out to Koko Head Crater, Lanai and Maui, and enjoys peaceful sunrises and cool ocean breezes year round. Originally used as a beach and fishing retreat for Hawaiian royalty, this private cove remains today one of the best kept secrets on the island.

Custom built in 2002 and featured in the London Financial Times travel section in 2005, the home was carefully designed to take advantage of the exceptional views from every room. Its architecture reflects a sophisticated blend of Hawaiian and Balinese design and detail, including a double pitched roof, 20 foot vaulted ceilings, rich, teak flooring, carved wood doors and ceiling molding, ceiling fans and sill vent windows which allow a flow of fresh air from the outside to naturally cool the house. The house is also fully air-conditioned, with separate zones in all rooms. The house sleeps 8, with 4 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths, a living room, study, family room, exercise room and two large, covered lanais.

The large living room has 20 foot, vaulted ceilings and 30 feet of sliding glass doors that open to a spacious, covered lanai, creating a huge, indoor/outdoor living space with complete privacy and magnificent ocean views and breezes. The room is entered through a gracious foyer, has a Steinway grand piano and comfortable seating for relaxing and visiting. The dining room also opens onto the lanai and flows into a large kitchen with granite counters, a center island, and top of the line appliances. Outside the kitchen is a built-in, gas barbeque, with a pass through window into the kitchen. Both dining room and kitchen also have 20 foot, vaulted ceilings. The main floor of the house is completed with an office that opens onto the Living Room, Master suite, powder room and laundry room.

Downstairs are an additional Master suite with private bath, and two bedrooms that share a large bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers. The family room has a pool table, large T.V. and opens onto a garden, pool and a covered lanai with two chaise lounges and a daybed. There is also a small exercise room with an elliptical exercise machine, free weights, exercise ball and bands.

The home has wireless Internet throughout, is walking distance from Diamond Head Crater, and within a five minute drive to Waikiki or Kahala Mall. A property manager lives in a separate cottage nearby. A private chef and daily maid service can also be arranged.

Dream Hawaiian Getaway

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful property that lived up to the expectation created by the online listing. The views out each window are like picture postcards. You do need a car, but its position is a wonderful springboard to explore Oahu, and Hawaii at large. Waikiki is a short drive away, and the Diamond Head crater is in walking distance. I think our family had our best holiday yet here!

Our family has had the good fortune of vacationing at many wonderful properties. We have voted unanimously that this "is at the top of the list". We were very sad to leave and have talked repeatedly about returning. The amazing pictures of this property do not begin to reflect its true beauty. If you are looking for a spectacular view, secluded and quiet, beautifully furnished home.... this is your place. The caretaker, Leslie, was a joy to work with. The house is well equipped for cooking and grilling. Whole Foods is very close for shopping. Nothing more we could have asked for! Looking forward to our next visit!

Exquisite Home For Complete Relaxation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My two week stay at this lovely home is sadly coming to a close. The view of Kokohead is stunning from almost every room in the home. The doors to the lanai are open allowing a faint scent of plumaria to fill the house. The sound of the waves is calming. The palm trees are rustling. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to fix a scumptious meal from ingredients purchased at the nearby Whole Foods or farmers' market, or if you prefer, some of Honolulu's best restaurants are within a 10 minute drive. Choose from the extensive book collection and then curl up in one of the many private spaces for a quiet afternoon of reading. Take a dip in the pool (heated to a comfortable temperature for this Southern lady). At night open the windows to allow the breeze brush over you like feathers. The house is so spacious that even a large family or group can find quiet space when needed. If you encounter any problems (I have not) the caretaker lives nearby. I love this home and hope to return soon.

Two Weeks of Bliss

  • 5 of 5
This was the most beautiful space I have ever experienced. Like Hawaii, the pictures do not do it justice. The home opens to the sunrise over the ocean; not just the sight but the sounds as well. The furnishings are not just beautiful, but warm and inviting. This isn’t just a place to stay while you visit your destination; this space alone can be your destination. Everyone in the world should experience this home. With seven billion people and only four bedrooms, plan ahead because the scheduling logistics may become challenging.

Perfection - ideal, upscale Hawaii experience

  • 5 of 5
Our family have rented a number of vacation properties throughout the world, without question, this was one of our best all-around experiences.

This home is perfectly situated on a low bluff and the end of a quiet lane just off Kahala Drive. Waikiki is under 10 minutes away as are family friendly spots like the aquarium and zoo. The quiet and private Kahala Beach is only 2-3 minutes drive or a few minutes walk. However, the private "beach" near the property is best as a launch for kayaks or for exploring by snorkel: the area is very rocky and a bit rough at times.

Panoramic views of the shore and Koko Head are framed by the wall-to-ceiling windows of the living room, dining room and bedroom as well as from the lush back yard and pool. The views are entrancing and mixed with the steady, pleasant trade-winds, have the effect of melting all your cares away.

Our family of three adults and two girls (aged 2 and 6) stayed for a week and wished we could have stayed longer. The home is wonderfully designed and sparkling clean. It incorporates Hawaiian elements with South East Asian touches and boasts all modern amenities. (No need to bring your own beach reading, as there is a multitude of great titles to borrow.) The kids enjoyed the numerous games as well.

Our kids (and we) spent many hours everyday in the gorgeous, compact pool and "Jacuzzi." Kahala Mall, with a Whole Foods and Starbucks, is 5 minutes away as is a huge Safeway though Hoko's at the nearby Kahala Hotel shouldn't be missed (nor should The Ranch House for carb-packed local specialties.)

All bedrooms are spacious and we hardly had a chance to utilize all the amenities (e.g. BBQ, gym room) and the kitchen fully-equipped. The bathrooms are always well appointed as even is the outdoor shower with piping hot water. (Note that there are no spices nor even coffee, sugar, salt & pepper or filters in this property, not an issue as it keeps things clean and hygienic, but if you get in late and want coffee in the morning, make sure to buy some.)

This was simply a fantastic all-around experience. The weekly rates are appropriate as one would be very hard-pressed to replicate the ambiance at a hotel or condo rental. I would strongly recommend this property anytime for anyone and look forward to returning.

Amazing house, owner and location!!!

  • 5 of 5
I just spent my 30th birthday in Hawaii and to be honest the pictures don't show at all what an amazing house we stayed in. When we entered the front door the first time, we were just speechless what view we would have for the next week. This house just has everything!!! I would definitely stay there again. Thanks Carol!!!
