Location Location Location. 5 minutes away from busy, noisy Waikiki and located on the southern, sunny side of Oahu.

What makes this house unique

Comfy, Quiet, Good Location

  • 5 of 5

Ours was a party of 6 adults with a full agenda all over the island the entire week, so we didn't spend a lot of time there but when we did, everything was great. Beds were comfy, the layout was perfect for us, and the bathroom essentials were stocked well, plus they also provided beach towels. Having AC and high-speed Internet was a huge plus for our group, and all worked perfectly! We ate in almost every morning and evening, and everything was great, though the stove could be upgraded but still worked just fine for us. The only downside was the parking -- we backed in each time, and it's not easy to do there with it being so narrow and going around a corner, but we had a great driver! This also was a good location for jumping on and off the freeway, driving to the beaches, etc. Our host (Suzanne) was absolutely awesome and made us all feel welcome, giving great tips on places to go and where to park, and was quick to respond to texts and calls. We would definitely recommend staying here and would stay again if ever back on the island with a group! MAHALO!

Nice place to stay, quiet neighborhood.

We enjoyed our stay at this property. Had everything we needed and the hostess was very nice and helpful. Located in a quiet area with quick access to the interstate, and not far from Waikiki beach.

Great place, feeling like home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 nights at this place during our 9 day 7 night Hawaii vacation. Among the three vacation rentals we used, this was definitely the best.

We, a party of seven, selected this place based on its space, location as well as reasonable price. It turned out to be even better than I expected.

The place is in a reasonable distance to Waikiki, airport, etc. Two blocks away there are Walgreens, Foodland (grocery store), Chinese, Japanese, Thai food etc.

This place has three bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. One of the bedrooms has an extra sofa bed. They also provided an air mattress which my daughter used. We had pretty good sleep for all of our seven.

The kitchen has basically everything you need, stove oven, microwave, even with a rice cooker. So some nights we just bought groceries and cook some dishes.

The TV is huge and has Netflix (we didn't watch though) and hundreds of cable channels.

In short, this is a place you will feel like home.

Finally, the owners, Jennifer had very good communications with us, and Suzanne gave us wonderful receiving during our check-in. If you have 5-7 persons to visit Oahu, this will be a perfect place for you to stay.
