The space

Dwell luxury and style meet in this modern 1 bed/1bath guest home in Manoa Valley, complete with mid-century modern furniture, concrete floors, high ceilings and designer rugs. Designed with two glass sliding doors that open up to an expansive yard and magnificent mountain views, with a small peak of the back of Diamond Head and the ocean. The front yard includes two teak dining room tables, one of which has a market umbrella for shade from sun or brief mountain showers. Day bed or sofa in living room can be used to accommodate a third person. Sofa is not a sofa bed.

Recessed lighting and in-ceiling speakers in every room are wired for wireless Airplay through mobile devices/smartphones/iPads, etc. Kitchen includes a below counter refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, bar sink, and Nespresso Coffee Maker with coffee for your stay. There is also a propane gas grill in the yard for barbecues. Please note that there is not a stove or cooktop in the house, but if you are comfortable using a grill, it's a great alternative.

Manoa is a quaint family neighborhood. Close to a grocery and drug store, as well as many dining and take-out options, and unique shopping. Waikiki and the airport are just 15 minutes away. A wonderful hike to Manoa Falls is down the street, as well as a ridge hike that ends with a fabulous view out the valley towards the ocean. Public bus line runs at the end of our street.

Rental is in our back yard, but a good distance away from our residence, for your increased privacy. Easy street parking and separate entrance. Smoking off property only.

Doug as a perfect host. He oriented us at the beginning, responded when we needed and provided a beautiful space. Having lived in Hawaii 15 years this was the nicest space - residential or commercial - that I’ve been in. Was like living in our own private magazine all week!

Perfect in every way! Travelled to Oahu with my 2 children for the first time and enjoyed every moment at Doug's beautiful home. The views are magnificent at all times of the day and you hear chirping of the birds throughout the day. Close to everything yet tucked away serenely. …
