Luxury Retreat In The Mountains Behind Diamond Head Overlooking Waikiki With Views From Kokohead To Honolulu International Airport
What a great place to stay! With all the generic places to stay that are just condos, to be in a great little cottage with a feeling of seclusion, all dark wood, great deck view. There's basically a caretaker / resident on site who is very friendly and lives in one of the other houses - easy to get ahold of, no waiting around. A few points: the internet here is very strong, as is the shower. I love a good morning shower, and this is the best ever. An on-demand water heater, I think. If there is anything to be aware of, the parking is a little dicey. There's a garage right under the house, but our monstrous rental car was a tight fit! A normal car should be fine..
Michael's place was beyond perfect. You easily have one of the best views of the city and ocean from the patio, and it's just a short drive into town. The accommodation was great, our family of four fit just fine, made dinner in the kitchen, and enjoyed the place just as much as we enjoyed going out and seeing the sights. Michael is a wonderful host and we'll definitely be staying with him whenever we come to Hawai'i.
The view here was absolutely amazing. It is on top of the hill which provides a stunning view to wake up to every morning and sip some coffee before heading out for the day as well as a wonderful spot to watch the sunset. It is super close to Waikiki but is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. You get the best of both worlds at this location! Additionally, the loft was super comfortable and very roomy. To top things off, Michael was tremendously communicative and was a very welcoming host. I will definitely stay here when I return to Honolulu!
This beautiful space is so lovingly maintained and incredibly comfortable. We enjoyed watching the sunrise and sunset on Diamond Head and the trade winds provided the perfect cooling during a particularly hot spell! My husband grew up on Wilhelmina Rise and it was so wonderful to be 2 blocks from his parents and family home. No ka oi!
