This historic property, recognized most notably for its architectural significance, was placed on the Hawaii Register of Historic Places in 1997. Guests are sure to be charmed by this lovingly restored 2-storey Craftsman style home that sits on a breezy, expansive oceanfront property in the quiet East Honolulu community of Aina Haina, just minutes away from Waikiki.

Designed by renowned territorial architect, Raymond L. Morris, in 1936 for the prominent Alexander & Baldwin executive, Carl Bayer, and his wife, Florence Gurrey (daughter of insurance executive/maritime artist, Alfred R. Gurrey, Sr.), the home is situated on one of the few remaining unsubdivided parcels that runs from Kalanianaole Highway down to the ocean.

The State of Hawaii has encouraged creative re-uses of historic properties in an effort to promote the conservation of historic properties for the education, inspiration, pleasure and cultural enrichment of residents and visitors. The City & County of Honolulu, recognizing the uniqueness of the Bayer Estate and the community benefit of public access to it, granted a special permit which allows the commercial use of this historic property for intimate, elegant, home weddings, and other special events.

Since the Bayer Estate's placement on the historic register, we feel an ethical obligation, as its new "guardian," to preserve and restore this charming seaside property for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike for generations to come. Patrons of the Bayer Estate will be contributing to the preservation of not only this historic property, but others as well, as a portion of the proceeds generated will be donated annually to help fund other private and public historic preservation projects in the State of Hawaii.

We hope that you and your family and friends will be gathering together in celebration at the Bayer Estate, where nostalgic traditions of the past will be beautifully revisited.
