Richard and Sarah were wonderful hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. The room was spacious and cozy. Air conditioning definitely helped us stay cool on the hot summer days. Having basic kitchenware, like toaster oven, microwave, refrigerator, and kettle, was a big plus because we wanted to prepare our own breakfast.
The neighborhood was quiet and safe, so getting good sleep was not a problem. There were some insects outside at night (common problems in Hawaii, I guess), but there was plenty of repellent around the windows and doors so that the indoor remained bug free.
Room was great! It's really the perfect location since you're already near Waikiki/Diamond Head/downtown,etc. and you don't have to deal with any rush hour traffic to get places. Close to Pali Hwy to get to the Windward side and near H-1 to go to North Shore. I appreciated that there was an off-street parking spot for my rental car. There's a grocery store a few minutes away so I bought some grocery items to save on cost of meals. Everything fit just fine in the mini fridge and there's a microwave and filter-less coffee maker that helped keep my daily costs down as well, (not a fan of $4 cups of coffee!) but keep in mind you'll have to buy your own cream and sugar (I think the sugar in the room is a tad old. I keep my sugar in the fridge when I'm in Hawaii). The AC in the room makes it so much more comfortable to sleep at night. Check-in was super easy and hosts were very nice. The only thing I missed from a conventional hotel room is access to ice. I'm sure if I'd asked Richard he would have given me some from his own freezer, but I didn't want to bother him. I also didn't need a whole cooler of ice for just myself. Not a big deal, though. I'd certainly stay here again in the future.
The listing was 100% Accurate and true. Perfect little space with everything as advertised.
Richard and Sarah were very nice and communicated with us very promptly before and during our stay. Their place is in a fantastic location - in the middle of everything you'd want to do while staying on the south shore of Oahu. Great price, cozy and clean place! Parking on their driveway, which was very convenient. Loved their 2 very friendly dogs!
