We needed accommodation for 1 month during renovations and wanted to stay out of the busy Waikiki/Honolulu area and this place was perfect for our needs. Our hosts Mati & Tom were delightful and greeted us with a warm Aloha and beautiful Leis. Inside we found a welcome basket with local coffee and treats and we felt like we truly had arrived in Hawaii. Mati & Tom were very courteous allowing us our privacy but always at hand to help if needed. They have a wealth of local knowledge and can recommend the best of things to do on Oahu especially the neighboring areas where there is world class snorkeling, beaches, hiking and restaurants to enjoy within easy driving distance.
The accommodation was thoughtfully decorated in Hawaiian style with a full size stove and refrigerator which is great for an extended stay. Free Wifi and parking were great and the private entrance was most convenient. We spent many balmy nights enjoying the beautiful lanai with its comfortable furnishings and handy gas grill. There are two bathrooms and the main shower is spacious with a picture window with a view of the garden! There was plenty of room with the kitchen and bedroom being in separate rooms and there is lots of storage space to keep luggage and beach gear.
We thoroughly enjoyed our month at Mati & Tom's unique hideaway rental. It is highly recommended for those looking for a less touristy vacation and wanting to enjoy the feeling of actually living in Hawaii.
