We do spend a great time in Mike's house, everything is perfect, the host is quite nice and easy going. For we arrived early in first day, Mike provide another better apartment for us, so we didn't have to wait outside, the room is quite clean and comfortable, everything we need there, which make us just feel like home, hope to come back again.

This one bedroom was the perfect place for us to stay. We wanted a locale where we felt we were having a week off at home. It was very easy, comfortable and private. The walk to the beach is easy and access to nice restaurants and shopping locally is easy as well. July, August and September are hot months on this side of Oahu but with the fans and windows open to the breeze, makes taking a nap very comfortable. Getting up and taking a walk, with cell phone camera in your pocket, on the coast either way is heaven. At the south end is the Kahala resort and the bartender at the Plumeria will gladly make you a cup of coffee while you prepare for the walk back. The other way are look outs where you can see surfers and paddlers. I can't think of a much better place than this to enjoy normal, easy vacation pleasure. Mahalo nui loa for the perfect vacation.

Michael was a wonderful host! Very responsive to communication, he had great recommendations for places to go and eat. The location was quiet and beautiful and even closer to the beach than we expected. We can't wait to go back next year and rent the larger unit with our children.

This is the perfect place for couples, families or even just solo travelers. You don't need to live right near Waikiki or near the strip to enjoy that area. Mike's place is right near Diamond Head and is literally so close by to public transportation like the trolleys or even by foot. For fun morning runs, you can run left and go down the road following the ocean and find yourself at the zoo in no time. Or you can go right and walk/run your way over to the entrance of Diamond Head ($1 entrance fee) with the best #1 acai bowls and shave ice (other than Waiola) Mike's place offers privacy from the road and you have your own private entrance along with access to your own washer and dryer right in the adjacent hallway. The place doesn't have air conditioning, but there is a nice fan near the bed and it provides a lot of air. Humidity comes with the territory, so just be aware. In addition, there are some bugs. There were some ants and small cockroaches in the kitchen but not many. Just be aware that this is the island and that these critters come with the territory. The place has very little bugs for the area and it is manageable if you keep the kitchen clean and don't leave your bags open everywhere. I noticed they would come out during the night more. There is ample street parking if you rent a car, which is highly advisable to get the most out of your stay. However, public transportation is just as good and is close by to Mike's place. The ocean is very close by and you can walk there within 5 minutes! It is a great place to watch the sunset (or sunrise) and go swimming/surfing. Overall, if you're looking for a place nearby to all the hot spots, don't stay right near the strip with all the chaos of the tourists, stay at Mike's! It is much more relaxing and offers a true Hawaiian lifestyle living vibe. I would definitely stay here again versus a hotel or another place (which would probably be a small apartment because it is very condensed in size over in the Waikiki area) Kahala is one of the best and safest neighborhoods and offers an area with lots of spacious homes. Also there is Kahala Mall not too far away (5 minute drive) and that has Starbucks, Whole Foods, Longs Drugs, Macys, etc) Mahalo Mike! Aloha!

Michael User Profile

I'm Mike from Hawaii and Switzerland. I first came to Hawaii in 1986. I taught tennis and raced as a professional triathlete. After about 10 years in Hawaii I moved to Switzerland where I did my doctorate in Physiology. I moved back to Hawaii in 2006 after living in New York City area where I coached endurance athletes and taught at Columbia. I still coach and also work as a firefighter and real estate broker. For fun, I like being outdoors, hiking and sports. I still swim, bike and run regularly and enjoy playing tennis, surfing, kayaking etc.

I live in the same home that the apartments are in. I chose this area because it is the best location on Oahu. It rests in a quiet upscale neighborhood yet is close to Waikiki. It offers the best combination of proximity to the ocean and beach while still being near entertainment, restaurants and events. Finally, the area has great sunny weather and is convenient for reaching other locations on the island.
