Zen Oahu Beach House
This ultra-modern mansion, designed by award-winning architect Tony Ngai, was completed in 2008 -- it's been host to families on luxury Oahu vacations just about ever since. Its 6000 square foot, 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath layout is big enough to host up to 12 guests. This beautiful Kahala beach home is only two blocks from the ocean (and all the fun beach activities you can imagine).
Luxuriate in the extravagance of this Hawaiian rental home's travertine marble floors, vaulted ceilings, and posh furnishings. The outdoor space of this luxury rental home is as laboriously decorated as the inside, with surrounding rock wall and mature palm trees for privacy, as well as tropical free-form pool and Japanese garden. This home is aptly named Refreshing Touch. Prepare to be caught speechless at the overwhelming splendor upon entering this Oahu beach rental.
The sleek Asian-inspired decor suggests a feeling of Zen relaxation, while the tasteful modern furniture whispers comfort and affluence. The huge formal living room’s focal point is the floor to ceiling wall of sliding glass doors that open onto a cool, grassy lawn and beautiful Japanese garden. A formal dining room is next door with large windows that let in lots of sunlight and view, while still restricting privacy. Ten people can comfortably sit at the glass-top dining table and gaze out on the decorative rock wall on one side, or the shimmering pool on the other. The travertine marble throughout extends into the main floor powder room, richly appointed with high end European fixtures (which are also featured in the remaining 5 bathrooms that are en-suite).
The heart of this massive Oahu rental home’s sprawling common spaces is definitely the open concept kitchen and family room, which open out onto the shaded patio and pool. The gourmet kitchen is all flawless stainless steel and glass in a custom designer style. Double Subzero refrigerators, freezer, and Kupersbuch ovens deck out this stunning Italian eat-in kitchen. A stainless steel hood acts also as modern art piece over the solid surface bar, where the kids can eat breakfast or you can enjoy your morning coffee. The kitchen is only part of this open great room, with chic sectional and entertainment center sharing the stylish stage. The covered patio of this luxury vacation home is the perfect place for relaxing with a tropical cocktail after a long soak in the Jacuzzi tub. A traditional Japanese Tatami room, complete with rice paper shades and wood-paneled ceilings, rounds out the first floor, and can serve as a place for tea and snacks or bonus sixth bedroom. Convenient laundry stations are on both lower and upper floors; and the two floors are connected by elevator for easy accessibility. Central air conditioning and ceiling fans keep this property cool and comfortable year-round. High Speed Internet connection will ensure you remain connected while the complimentary cable will entertain during calm moments.
Each of the five bedrooms in this luxury Oahu rental has an en-suite bathroom and single King bed, with the exception of the one downstairs bedroom furnished with a Queen.

Diamond Head Crater is minutes away, offering unique hiking and photography opportunities. The bright blue Pacific Ocean calls to snorkelers, swimmers, scuba divers, surfers, and boaters – since the home is only two blocks from the ocean, the call is pretty loud!
