About this listing
If you're looking for a real Hawaii get away...consider our beautiful and comfortable home in Kaimuki with your own private bathroom! Our 2nd floor 3 bedroom plantation style home is located in a residential neighborhood with some Diamond Head and ocean views. We have beautiful sunny mornings, fantastic sunsets and even a double rainbow every now and then, The space is very breezy with LOTS AND LOTS of sunlight. We also have kitchen space for light cooking. The house has wireless internet so you can facetime with all your friends and make them SUPER jealous that you're in Hawaii;)
We are a quick walk down hill from lots of YUMMY restaurants along Waialae Avenue. There are 42 restaurants within a 15 minute walk!! Kaimuki is a funky, friendly and chill neighborhood with lots of cool folks walking around at all hours of the day. Whether it's for their morning jog or taking their kids out for a nice stroll in the early evening. The neighborhood is VERY safe, with a Walk Score of 83. We are close to the University of Hawaii and Chaminade University. Our place is a great way for you to get to know the neighborhood.
We are also VERY close to the bus line should you choose to go that route (see what I just did there?;)) We are out of the craziness of Waikiki, but only a few miles away from it all.
We are chill, down to earth folks who like to be social, but will also leave you be if you choose to meditate for your entire trip. My husband and I are both Physical Therapists. He is originally from Australia and I am originally from Canada. We enjoy traveling and the outdoors, but like coming home and unwinding in front of the television with a good music documentary after a long day of working. We are more of a small craft beer house then a keg stand joint. Our house is nice and neat and homey:) If you're looking for a party house...this is probably not the best choice for you. We like to keep the noise down late at night out of respect for our neighbors and downstairs tenant.
Please be aware that we have a dog named Jack who resides downstairs in the backyard. Sometimes he sits with us on the lanai while we are chilling out at the end of the day. He may be invited into our bedroom when there is thunder and lightening. He does not venture to the back of the house where your room is.
Check out our photos and feel free to shoot us a message if you have any questions. Hope to hang with you in Hawaii soon! ALOOOOOOOHA!

Guest rooms are cleaned in between guest visits. Apart from this, guests are expected to clean common areas after use and clean their own rooms during their stay. Thank you ahead of time!
I had a great time while staying with Alison. Her home is clean and welcoming. I was asked several times if I needed anything additional. The area is safe and inviting...there are loads of restaurants in the area. It is easy to get to the HI 1 and University of Hawaii. Thanks
Allison and Martin were perfect hosts and the accommodations were wonderful, even nicer than the pictures suggest. I visited during a particularly hot summer (temps in the mid-90s) and their place was always a cool, breezy break from the heat. The private bathroom was especially useful for a mid-day shower after hiking or quick rinse before going out at night. The Kaimuki area is indeed exploding with great restaurants, cafes and even a brew pub.
Overall a great stay and I feel lucky to have met Allison and Martin. I hope to return again next year :)
We had an amazing experience staying here. Very clean and felt like home. Great location! Alison and her husband were very nice. They informed us a lot of things to do in Oahu. They were definitely easy to talk to. I would have to say one of the best experiences I've had with airbnb. Our last day we checked out and spent all day at the beach. They also were nice enough to let us shower off that evening due to us having a late flight. I would definitely recommend them!
Allison and Mark were very helpful in recommending places to go and activities. They were fun and friendly as well as respectful of the guests personal space. My boyfriend and I had a great time in hawaii and will be looking forward to coming back again
Nice host，Nice room and Nice experices…The room is very clean and quite. And there are several good restaurants around here.I feel very lucky to live here. I will live this house if I have a chance to Hawaii.
We spent a very good time in Alison and Martin's house. They very nice to us and gave us very good tips and information to have a better experience in Oahu! The room was really nice, the neighborhood is quiet. This is a place stay ! I recommend it !
A great place to stay in Kaimuki, Alison and Martin are the perfect hosts.
We arrived very late after a long flight but Alison made sure everything was all set up for us to check in after hours which was greatly appreciated.
The room with private bathroom towards the back of the house was very comfortable and had everything you could need.
Alison provided some great tips about where to go in Hawaii and the bus at the end of the road takes you straight to Pearl Harbour which was a bonus.
Wish we could have stayed a lot longer than 4 nights!
