Honolulu, HI 96816 United States

An Oasis of Calm. Understated Elegance. These are the thoughts that first come to mind as you enter this stunning, contemporary property, offering a quintessential Hawaii experience in one of Oahu’s most upscale neighborhoods, steps away from the world-renowned, pristine white sand beaches in Kahala that have attracted presidents, royals, and celebrities looking for a secluded hideaway. Four superb bedrooms plus a bonus room accommodate up to 8 guests. New to the market, this private resort is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and privacy walls that ensure a discreet, secure lifestyle.
As you walk in, a grand 2-story foyer leads the way to bright, airy casual and formal living areas to your left, and spacious bedroom quarters to your right, all in light, neutral tones, decorated with minimalist artwork, and accessible on a single floor. With soaring ceilings and expansive Travertine floors, this home is designed to offer many unique gathering places for group entertaining. The breathtaking living spaces are equipped with auto pocketing doors and screens that can disappear and provide the ultimate indoor-outdoor living experience. The formal dining area, with an inviting, handcrafted Balinese wooden dining table that can seat 8, is a perfect complement to the grand living room, which, with warm woods and accents that echo the beachside and tropical locale, opens up to a covered lanai equipped with a built-in gas barbecue. Around the corner, the space flows into a sleek chef-grade custom kitchen with the finest finishes and appliances such as Sub-zero and Wolf, and a spacious island with counter seating for 4. Adjacent to the kitchen is an intimate breakfast or casual dining nook for 4, and a small entertainment room, with a stereo system that connects with your favorite device to stream music throughout the residence. The kitchen and guest room-wing opens up to a meticulously landscaped tropical garden, an outdoor shower, a gem-tiled, heated saltwater pool with cascading fountains, and a hot tub where you can unwind under the spectacular stars
Immaculate though comfortable throughout, this home-away-from-home offers simple-to-use, intuitive technology such as Apple TV, automated window shades, A/C controls via Nest, pool & spa heating, LED lighting control, and security system. Other amenities include a windowed laundry room, ample storage closet and a Sub-Zero wine fridge in the 2-car enclosed garage. Additionally, optimized for remote working in the post COVID-19 era, the house provides up to 1GB Internet for high-performance videoconferencing, surfing, and streaming in 4k and 8k.
Furnished with subtle Hawaiian contemporary sophistication, all 4 bedrooms plus the bonus room enjoy large windows for maximum light and fresh air, en-suite bathrooms, and generous mahogany walk-in closets for privacy and convenience. The main suite includes a California king bed, with wide glass doors to the pool and garden. Its deluxe bathroom boasts a walk-in rain shower, dual vanity, and a deep soaking tub. The primary guest suite features a queen bed, a deep soaking tub, and plantation shutters that are reminiscent of vintage Hawaii. The other two guest rooms feature a queen bed and a full bed, respectively. The bonus room features an efficient office workspace, complete with a desk, cabinets, and a twin sofa sleeper. Spanning the second floor is a loft space that provides a quiet nook for children to enjoy books, games, and toys.
This idyllic island retreat is within a short stroll from the sandy shores of Kahala Beach, and is approximately 1/2 mile to the entrance of the famed Kahala Resort Hotel & Spa. Whole Foods Market and Kahala Mall are just a short distance away, while Waikiki and the nightlife spots of downtown Honolulu are a mere 10-minute drive.

    a guest from Highland Park, IL recommends this vacation rental

    The house was beautiful and immaculate. The neighborhood was just as we expected-quiet and lovely. The kitchen was perfectly equipped.
    We did a lot of cooking and eating meals at the house due to the
    Winding down of Covid. We so enjoyed the pool.
    We cannot say enough about the wonderful experience and support of
    Private Homes Hawaii starting with the initial paperwork regarding the rental. They were totally responsive and businesslike.

    Lisa, our property manager was boyond helpful and so enjoyable.
    All in all, we would repeat the month without a second thought,

      Thank you very much for your kind words - will definitely share with the team and the owner. And, please join us again in Kahala. The Aukai neighborhood is a gem and I know the owners are pleased to share their home with visitors for this reason.

    a guest from Las Vegas, NV recommends this vacation rental

    Staying in this beautiful home felt like staying in a the largest pool villa of a luxury resort. The interior design and decor were beautiful and stylish to every detail. And the service from the property manager was world class. I was not surprised that they had 5-star hotel experience because that's how our stay felt. We had originally booked a one month stay but extended it another 10 days because we were so happy and comfortable here.

    We have made many trips to Hawaii over the years but this was by far the most memorable. A big part of it was the home's location in a great residential neighborhood that feels like a "real" neighborhood and not just a collection of vacation homes. The neighbors are friendly and seem to know each other. Kids practice volleyball and soccer in the park nearby. And all the things we needed for day-to-day life, from Whole Foods to the drugstore and basic shopping were just a quick and easy 5-minute drive down the road to Kahala Mall. Yes, Waikiki and all its restaurants and activities are just around Diamond Head but the home feels a world away if you want peace.

    For those days we wanted a "resort feel" we just headed to the Kahala Hotel, a few-minutes-drive down a quiet road, where we had lunch at the oceanfront restaurant and spent time with the kids visiting the dolphin lagoon and playing on the beach.

    On this trip, for the first time, it felt like we were living in Hawaii rather than just visiting as a tourist. Yet we had all the tourist activities within arm's reach. We are already looking at the calendar to see when we can come back. Excellent stay!

      Thank you kindly for your review and glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Kahala. This is a special home in one of Oahu's most distinguished neighborhoods and it is great that you got to experience the lifestyle that so many 'Kamaaina' (locals) enjoy. We appreciate your comments and also appreciate how well the home was cared for! Would love to have you return soon. Happy Holidays.
