Hale Ikena Kai is a traditional island home that boasts sweeping views of Waikiki. This neighborly location is up in the heights where you're close to Waikiki and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki! Relax in the Lanai and take in the views. Experience Hawaii like a Local!
Aloha! Welcome to Hale Ikena Kai or House with the Ocean View.
We named it this because the main focal point of the home is - the view!
From the kitchen, living room, den and lanai, you have sweeping views of the Ocean and all of Downtown Waikiki. Our home is a duplex with the main view home being upstairs. There are private, separate entrances to the home.
Hale Ikena Kai is the upstairs view home. It is decorated in a light and airy modern island style, incorporating some of the local artists’ work throughout. The master bedroom has a queen bed, large closet, dresser and a window AC unit. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and a closet. There’s also a den that has a full-sized futon that pulls out and sleeps (2). Our home has one bathroom with a shower only. There is no bathtub.
The kitchen has two windows - one overlooking the plumeria tree & one with an ocean view. The kitchen also boasts a brand new stove, fridge and microwave. Sorry, there is no dishwasher but the window over the sink looks out to the blooming plumeria tree!
The best part of Hale Ikena Kai is - you guessed it - the lanai! The views are simply stunning especially early morning and sunset. It has a two comfy padded chairs and a large table for dining with bench and chair seating. (Comfortably fits 8.) This is where you will probably spend most of your time relaxing, reading a book, enjoying a cocktail, or watch Fireworks go off every Friday night at the Hilton Hawaiian!
Also, depending on what time of year you come- there's fresh mango and avocados from the trees in the yard! Though the months often fluctuate, we've found that July, August & into September, they tend to be the most ripe.
We use a Keyless Coded Entry for added security and convenience.
Interaction with guests
The house has separate entrances for the Main House (Hale Ikena Kai) and a separate lower rental unit. Scott is our friendly full time resident in the lower unit who works in the entertainment industry. He is also our caretaker of the home in the event of emergencies.
