Located in the hills above Pearl Harbor is one of Oahu's most delightful retreats. The higher, cooler elevation, with frequent trade wind breezes, make for a delightful micro-climate. Built in 2013, this studio cabin features ceramic tiled floors, granite counters & cherry wood cabinets. The private lanai faces the Norfolk Pine and Bamboo forest growing on the lower level of the property. Queen bed, indoor & outdoor dining areas and A/C. This space is only available for 30 days or more.

The space
Enjoy a private guest house on a larger estate in the hills above Pearl Harbor. The private bathroom is in a separate building about 10 ft from the studios' front door, with paved, lighted and covered access, and keyed entry. The Aiea Loop Trail, among other hiking trails, are nearby. Ample street parking is available. This cabin (and our private sewage system) can accommodate only 1 person, is not suitable for large groups and no pets are allowed. The Hawaii General Excise Tax is included in the nightly rate, however, per Hawaii law, guests staying less than 6 months are responsible for the Hawaii Transient Accommodation Tax of 11.5%. Guests will be asked to pay this amount directly to the hosts each month, in addition to amounts paid through Airbnb. Off-site amenities, restaurants, hospital, groceries are at the bottom of the hill, about 2 miles. Aiea is conveniently located near Pearl Harbor, the airport, Aloha Stadium, and all freeways. Site is down sloping and guests must be able to negotiate 3 flights of stairs. Lush, peaceful setting has mornings filled with bird songs! You can have coffee on your private lanai or have friends over for a barbecue in the manicured backyard. There is a microwave oven, a toaster oven and a hot plate, but no conventional oven or cooktop. Wet bar has a refrigerator, dishes and cookware. All linens provided. Also available for your use are two sets of golf clubs, generic women's size clubs from Costco, and custom clubs for a tall man. And two hand-pulled golf bag trolleys too. Limited bus service in this residential area. Elevation is about 700-800 feet with clean, fresh trade winds flowing over the top of the mountain and through the cabin.

Where you’ll be

Honolulu, Hawaii, United States

Aiea Heights is a quiet residential area located in the Ko'olau mountains just above Pearl Harbor. The area was originally built up with plantation homes that housed the workers at the nearby sugar cane plantation, no longer in production. Many of the old plantation homes have been replaced by larger, modern homes, such as this one. There is an ancient Hawaiian healing he'iau (temple) within walking distance, at the top of the hill.

Husband John and I are semi-retired and living in the home John built in the community of Aiea, at an elevation of about 800 ft above Pearl Harbor. We are avid travelers but always love coming home to our little piece of Paradise in Hawaii. We enjoy meeting and talking with our guests from around the world. When in Hawaii, Carol has several volunteer activities she enjoys and John loves planning the next trip and gardening.
