Sarah's and Richard's room was one of my best places I've ever stayed at. It's super clean n cozy and you have everything you need in this large room. The AC works great and everything else is as described or better. They could totally charge more for this room!
A big Mahalo!
This was a very positive experience. The room was wonderful. The location and neighborhood of this room were ideal. Unfortunately we happened to be on Oahu during a heat wave but the room had just what we needed: ice cold air conditioning!
The host were very friendly and most welcoming. I gotta say that this was a 5star place to stay at, very private and spacious. They also accommodated us with an extra day stay due to missing our flight. Would highly recommend this place to stay at, just outside of Waikiki and about a 15-20min walk to the beach, also shops and restaurants within walking distance. Can't express enough about how great the accommodation enough. Thanks a lot Richard and Sarah.
We happened to arrive at a time where our host was not home. He provided entrance instructions via text and phone instead. The home was easy to locate in a modest, seemingly safe neighborhood. The room was located in the back of the home, with a small staircase leading up to the door. The room was not quite as pictured in the photo, but similar enough. There was a small microwave and fridge, and some utensils, plates, and washing tools. The bathroom was quite large and there were some hand towels, beach towels, and bath towels provided. And lastly, and most importantly, an AC unit that was easy to use but took time to warm up.
Excellent experience. Richard was very hospitable. He offered suggestions of things to do and places to eat, as well as answering any other questions we had. Room was very comfortable and offered all the privacy you could ever ask for. Would highly recommend Rich and Sarah to anyone visiting Oahu.
The private space was self-contained, clean and quiet (and in a quiet residential neighborhood). The host greeted us and provided helpful information (we asked about eating ideas). Easy access to Waikiki Beach, museums, etc., by car. Also checked in with us by text on the first full day to see if we needed anything (a nice touch...reassurance that they were available if perchance we did need anything).
Steve particularly enjoyed the beauty of the meticulous woodwork/trim in the room and his "conversations" with the dog.
Thanks, Richard and Sarah, for a lovely, convenient place to stay while we were there!
We've had a great time in Oahu. It was our first visit to Hawaii and we were happy about it. The room was nice, big and comfortable, convenient location, safe and quiet neighborhood. We walked to the Waikiki Beach 1 time, it was a long walk, about 30-40 mins. All other times we were driving and it's just 5 mins to get there.
We liked the friendly dog, tasty mangoes and helpful advises of Richard.
