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.
Sarah & Richard's place was a great way to start a vacation. The room is cozy, bright, spacious clean and very comfortable to stay in. Not only does the room make you feel at home from the jump but so does the help & kindness of the hosts. Plus, the Beautiful dogs that are willing to chill when you want to spend some time in the backyard.
the neighborhood is safe and close to shops and restaurants.I would recommend this place to anyone & id revisit anytime.
Sarah and Richard were great. Very welcoming, and very helpful. Their dog, Yuki, is so friendly and calm. The room was clean, had helpful information printed, good wi-fi, nice bathroom, fridge, toaster oven, and microwave. They even had a coffee maker and an electric kettle for tea. The air conditioning worked great at night when we wanted it to be cool. The neighboorhood is really close to the Waialae Ave restaurant district and we were able to walk to Temura for wine and poke bowls, Town for a nice and swanky dinner, and Koa Pancake House for an excellent Hawaiian-style breakfast diner. It is also a (long-ish) walk to Waikiki, which is also really nice, if that's where you want to be. I don't have any negative feedback for this listing. It was great.
We've had a awesome time in Honolulu. The room has everything we've needed for our 3 nights. The beach and city is in walking distance, but also a bus stop is around the corner, which goes also direct to the diamonds head. Thanks to Richard and Sarah, we had a very comfortable stay.
