Or a cool quiet time in the room with the a/c. The apartment is separated from the main house, by a door and a lower family room. Two mountain bikes are readily available for your use to ride around the area, or cruise into Waikiki. The owners, Terri and Don live in the upper part of the house and love to meet new guests.

They have extensive traveling experiences and are always looking forward to making new friends from different parts of the world. The apartment will be equipped with some breakfast items, as well as other treats. Don & Terri look forward to greeting you upon your arrival.

We enjoyed our short stay in Oahu at Terri and Don's studio. It was just as described and just what we wanted. Having a washer and dryer was really convenient.
Great apartment for a couple! Super close to the city and the sites. Really awesome that there was a parking space right in front of our door. Overall wonderful experience and very happy with the way it all worked out!
This was a convenient and economical place for us to stay as we visited relatives in Honolulu...we liked it best because it was in walking distance of our daughter's house. We mainly used it to "crash" at night, but also enjoyed having a washer/dryer. We also used the snorkeling equipment during an outing with our grandkids. We will consider it again, for visiting our family.
The Town Studio provided a quiet place to stay with gentle cross breezes at night.
This was my and my husband's first time using AirBnB. Terri and Don have done a fabulous job with this place! All sorts of thoughtful add ons like snorkel gear, beach towels, and even a little welcome package. The location is fantastic as it's in a nice residential area but with easy access to the highway. We wish we could have met Terri and Don but they were out of town themselves. Their friend/houseguest, Tom, was very nice though. We've already recommended this place to another couple we're friends with who are thinking of visiting Oahu. :)
Great place to stay. Quiet location and the kitchenette was great to have to make breakfast/lunch. Bed is comfortable and the free place to park is unbeatable in O'ahu
Terri and Don were great. My boyfriend and I were pretty busy with things to do and just needed a convenient place to crash, but they added a lot to the overall value of the place! When we arrived we were greeted warmly by Terri and saw she had left us waters, Hawaiian mac nut chocolates, a calendar, and lists of things to do nearby. Very thoughtful! The bed was comfortable and having the AC was clutch because it got pretty humid at night. Didn't get to use the kitchenette, but it's there plus W/D!
Enjoyed my stay very much. It was nice to have some meal preparation facilities & to have separate accommodations. Appreciated Terr's recommendations to rent a car, that worked out perfectly. Everything was well organized, they left me directions,sight seeing suggestions & snacks. Would stay there again.
Thanks Terri & Don! We had a great time, and your place was a perfect base for us to explore the island. Great location next to supermarkets and easy access to the highway. Super quiet neighborhood, and the apartment had everything we needed. We'd definitely stay again, and recommend to anyone traveling to Honolulu. Thanks again for letting us stay!
The place was perfectly sized for 1-2 people complete with a kitchenette and washer/dryer. There was even a jacuzzi in the back patio to use! The location is quiet and peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. It's WAY easier to have a car if you're staying here, otherwise it might take more time to get around. If you don't have a car they have bikes you can use to get around. The place is in a great location and only a few minutes away from Kahala Mall, Diamondhead, and the Kapi'olani Community College (AWESOME farmer's market on Saturdays).
Terry and Don were wonderful hosts who were very friendly and welcoming. When I arrived they even had a small box of chocolates, a Hawaii calendar, and a welcome card sitting on the bed. So nice!! I'd absolutely stay here again the next time I need a place in Honolulu!
