About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

The deep silence and tranquility are unexpected at the Heavenly Valley Retreat. The studio apartment is located on a private street above the congestion of Honolulu bordering a tropical forest. A stream runs close by and the main road in the valley is above and away from our house so the dominate sounds in the neighborhood are singing birds and the trade winds blowing through the palm trees. It is the ideal place to rest and rejuvenate.

Even though the apartment is above the city, it is only a few minutes from gorgeous beaches, great board and wind surfing areas, excellent restaurants, shopping malls, the University of Hawaii and Chaminade campuses.

Heavenly Valley was truly heavenly

  • 5 of 5

The Heavenly Valley Retreat proved to be ideal for my wife and daughter, and me. The location is about 20 min from downtown Honolulu and the nearby beautiful Waialae beach. Cliff and Mary were excellent hosts. If we come back to Oahu in the near future again, we will most certainly choose to stay at this VRBO property. The listing description was completely accurate and the property was well maintained. An excellent choice for a couple or a couple and a child.

Quiet and Pleasant Surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Having spent a week residing on a beach at Rarotonga, it was a very pleasant change to stay in a woody and green environment. The cottage provided all (and even exceeded) our requirements. Cliff and Mary were hospitable and catered to our every need.

If one is looking for a rather secluded place for solitude and nature, this place is highly recommended. It is not suitable for those who are late night party goers or use the place to entertain in a noisy . Hong and Boon

Tropical Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful, fully-furnished studio. The tropical setting is lovely (and quiet!), cleanliness was exceptional, and our hosts were friendly and ready to help with any needs or questions. We highly recommend this comfortable "home base" while you explore Oahu.

the retreat is very clean, quiet , airy , relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The heavenly retreat is a true Hawaiian oasis. It is set in a lush cool tropical rainforest in a valley above Honolulu. It gives the true feel of old Hawaii. The lovely little apartment opens on to a garden setting to give a feeling of peace and serenity. As a University Professor who has to fly into Honolulu to give periodic lectures, I relish staying in the heavenly retreat to recharge in the quiet lush environment not far from the University, downtown and beaches. The hosts, Cliff and Mary, are a most helpful, friendly couple who can provide excellent advice from their years of Hawaiian and worldwide travel experience. I have stayed a number of times over several years and would not hesitate to give the retreat my highest recommendation and look forward to the chance to stay again. It is a very clean, quiet. airy, open, relaxing, simple yet well appointed studio.

the property is absolutely gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

The property truly is representative of it's name "Heavenly Retreat". The gardens are outstanding, and there is no shortage of all kinds of little birds, which creates a peaceful ambiance.

The location is also perfect, close to Waikiki, Honolulu airport, beaches etc.

I enjoyed my stay very much, and I truly recommend it to anyone that wants to experience Hawaii and it's beauty from a nature stand point.
