Kahala Luxury house

July 7, 2016

We have a party of 11 and fit in this 5 bedroom house nicely. The neighborhood is good. The owner manage the house on their own. They are very honest, trustful, reasonable and organized nice couple. We had a good experience. The location is great and convenient. Even though it's not water front but it's very close to the beach with walking distance. Or you can literally drive to Kahala hotel for their beach in 5 minute. The house is really nicely designed with details. I love the lay out of it and no wonder it's an award winning architect house.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Tom, Southern CA (Rated our home 5 out of 5 stars on another site.)

"Loved this home! Property exceeded our expectations. Hard to do it justice in the photo's. Truly a spectacular home. Short 1/2 mil walk or drive to Whole Foods Market, department stores, and, of course, Starbucks. Short walk or drive to the Kahala Resort and convenient walk to the beach. Property was clean and well maintained . Owner was very helpful and responsive. We had 4 generations of family. The downstairs bedroom and elevator were perfect for Great Grandmother. The master bedroom and bath are magnificent. More important to us, three additional upstairs bedrooms were spacious, all with King beds. Fabulous kitchen."

Jan K. (Rated our home 5 out of 5 stars on another site.)

Our family used this beautiful home as headq2uarters for our son's Kahala [Hotel] wedding..This beauty is spacious and has wonderful amenities. Just the right spot to relax and recharge during the festivities. You won't go wrong with this home - retreat for 2 or 10 you will love it!"

Group of CPAs from Eugene, OR who took a vacation together (Rated our home 5 out of 5 stars on another site.)

"Truly beautiful property - The home is really spectacular and the owners were beyond accommodating to our group of professionals. Mahalo."

From Leonie, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (Rated our home 5 out of 5 stars on another site.)

"Wonderful house - We recently stayed at this magnificent house. Our party of 10 (5 couples) just loved the modern and luxurious, yet relaxing feeling of the house.

The position was wonderful. A few minutes walk to the beach and Kahala resort and a few minutes walk to Kahala shopping mall which has a great Whole Foods store for all your food needs. About $15 for a taxi to Waikiki.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with.

Cannot recommend this highly enough."

From S. Dinner (Rated our home 5 out of 5 stars on another site.)

"All around PERFECT!!!! We came from Calgary Canada for a 10 night stay and everything was perfect. We had 12 guests with more then enough room for everyone and lots of parking. The house is beautiful in so many ways and has all the amenities one could ask for and then some. Even with 12 people it felt empty with lots of space and different living area's to enjoy. Slide all the full size glass doors open and its your own oasis and feels very secluded setting around the custom pool The Kahala area is one of the finest on the island and everything is very close to get to, its all just minutes away, the beach, the airport, Waikiki, haunuma bay, great shopping, grocery, spa's surfing, paddle board, golf, exotic car rentals, you name it, its there! The owners were great to deal with and very accommodating answering any questions we had and everything was as stated. We hosted a small wedding off site and planned everything on line and it went great, we got married down the road on the beach then we came back to the house for pictures and appy's, then to Waikiki for the nigh. Everyone just loved the house! 10 STARS!!!

From Richard C, Oakland, MI - (Rated our home 5 out of 5 stars on another site)

"Outstanding property, we had 2 families stay at this very spacious and well outfitted home, space was well designed and we never felt cramped. Attended a destination wedding in Honolulu and we had a great time staying here, very central and accessible to the hway so that we can get anywhere quickly. Loved the stereo throughout, TV's and appliances that accommodated a group of 9 very easily. Tony was very helpful and accommodating to our needs. Jacqueline was very prompt in setting up our reservation and responsive to any questions we had. Looking forward to returning soon. Highly recommended, we LOVED it."

From Tiny Y. (Rated our home 5 out of 5 stars on another site.) -

"We loved this home! (Gave it 5 out of 5 stars) I cannot express enough how much we enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. We were a large extended group (my husband and I and our two young children; my mother, aunt, and grandmother; and a family friend) and we always felt we had our privacy as well as enough space. We loved that everyone had their own bathroom and we did not have to take turns to use the bathroom! The house is spotless and elegantly decorated. Kahala is a wonderful area to stay in and is close by everything. When we are fortunate to return to Hawaii again, we will definitely want to stay here!

From Mel E. Australia & Canada (Rated our home 5 out of 5 stars on another site) -

"Absolute Paradise - We travelled from Australia to Hawaii to meet our Canadian friends halfway to celebrate a 40th. With 2 families of 5 we wanted to stay together and we wanted it to be quality time. Kahala House could not have been more perfect. We all relaxed in this incredible house and everyone had space but at the same time we had plenty of room to come together for meals, relaxing by the pool watching the kids, kicking back after kids had gone to bed. Just as perfect was how easy it was to get to everything. Less then 10 minutes to Waikiki and the perfect location to base ourselves to explore the beauty of Oahu. We did a huge grocery shop at the Whole Foods Market on our first day which is just down the road and we cooked beautiful healthy meals all week without having to relay on restaurants which meant the kids were able to relax at the house while we enjoyed a wine and conversation while preparing dinner. Tony and Jacqueline were incredibly helpful both before and during the trip with sharing information and answering questions. I could not recommend this property more highly for the perfect holiday with a larger group.
