A fully furnished guest room in our 23rd floor, urban home and includes private bath. The condo has mountain, harbor, and city views. You'll be steps from Downtown and Chinatown, Aloha Tower, ‘Iolani Palace, State Capitol, and many bus lines. This is a prime location and gorgeous, modern apartment.
This apartment is spacious, airy, bright, and contemporary. All finishes have been remodeled in recent years, the home is well-maintained, and we have central air conditioning. All rooms—with the exception of the bathrooms—feature floor-to-ceiling windows from the 23rd floor over-looking downtown Honolulu, the historic Capital District, the Harbor, and views of mountains and sea.
We love our home and enjoy sharing it with interesting people from around the world!
(Note, this home is smoke and pet free.)
You'd stay in our guest room with a queen sized bed. It comfortably sleeps two. The room has closet space, harbor/mountain views, and an adjacent (though not connected) private bathroom with shower.
Please note: this is a ‘Private Room’ listing; this is our home and, although you’ll have plenty of privacy, we still live here. If you want a whole apartment, be sure to search the category called ‘Entire home/apt.’
Guests will be given a set of keys to come and go as they please during their visit. The building has a secure entry and 24-hour security staff.
Interaction with guests
HANGING WITH US
We are both friendly and out-going hosts although our work hours and schedules mean we often aren't around. We're happy to share a drink with our guests and help answer questions about the area. We're also equally happy to let guests have a quiet visit and relax in their room if they're feeling less chatty. It's all good!
Other things to note
A lot of folks ask about parking. Parking is tough in downtown and Waikīkī, like any city, but there are some options. And, for arrival/drop-off, there's a nice 'loading zone' in front of the building where you can drop your bags if there're more than one of you.
Our building's first 6 floors are all commercial parking garage. You're welcome to park there. For details, check out Makai Parking—they manage our garage.
We have a spot in the garage that we might be able to share during the workday. Juggle that with your travel plans and the evening discount, and you might be able to get by spending very little on parking.
We love our home, the small mementos and art we've collected over the years, and the tranquility of our little sanctuary in the city. For these reasons, we expect guests to be quiet during night hours (10–7 ish), be reasonably tidy, and be polite. That's all!
I'm a professor of music and joined the University of Hawai‘i faculty in 2011. I've lived in Boston and grew up in the Midwest. I first visited Airbnb in 2011 as the guest of a wonderfully friendly couple in San Francisco. Now that I'm settled in Honolulu, we're hoping to meet and host some wonderful folks from around the world! Aloha.
My husband is a school teacher in the public schools and, when we're not working, we're often exploring this amazing island of O‘ahu. We're fascinated by Hawaiian culture, the arts, Honolulu's myriad restaurants, hiking and beaches, and spending time with our friends.
