My Notes

Distinctive residence from a bygone era. Former home of famed & beloved Hawaiian songwriter Alex Anderson. Some of Hawaii's most well known love songs, Mele Kalikimaka, Haole Hula & I'll Weave A Lei Of Stars were composed in this very home. This iconic residence is located on the slopes of Diamond Head in a private neighborhood of 17 homes known as Makalei Place. The character of this historic villa has been lovingly restored to its original grandeur. There are 5 bedrooms and 4 baths in the main home + an additional guest cottage with a full bath. Capture the magic & charm of old Hawaii.
