About Mike Lawnsby -owner-

Hello, and Welcome to Aloha Hideaway a place of rest, fun, and excitement

We live in Hawaii for the 'Mana' or Karma that these islands provide. The people, cuisine, culture, flora, natural beauty, hiking, sailing, ocean, and pace all are un-equaled to any other place with the same level of modernization and convenience. Yes some people still think we are a third world country and that we live in grass huts. Although that would simplify life, we have a lot to offer here in Oahu.

After our Hawaiian beach wedding, and Traditional Japanese shrine ceremony, we Soon needed a place to live. We lived 6 months in our first rental purchase (a studio in Fairway Villa). We then upgraded to a one bedroom in the Banyan. We now have four rentals and a home, and hope you decide to come relax in one of our Hideaway's.

Worked well for our family

  • 5 of 5

We originally booked the unit because the reviews said it was quiet (it was indeed quiet). But the best part about it is that it turned out to be a very practical place for my wife and I to stay with our 7 month old, both in terms of the layout of the condo and the location in Waikiki Beach.

Great location with all the attractions of Wakiki in close proximity.

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for the two of us. Kitchen and bathroom were very well stocked. Our hosts were attentive in setting up all the rental details. All the logistic details & operating instructions were accurate and really helped with getting settled in so we could enjoy our vacation activities. If we make our way to Honolulu again we would seek this place out.

Nicely appointed condo

  • 4 of 5

I'll start by saying that it was very easy to communicate & interact with the owner, Mike.

We enjoyed the week we spent on the 36th floor with gorgeous mountain views day or night.

The condo is in a great location & having a parking space in the garage was valuable to us.

The condo was clean & a good value during the high season of January.
