Ko'olau Mountain Stream (Honolulu)

House - Private room · Numana Rd, Honolulu, HI 96819, United States

The Space

Our 4 Bedroom home sits in the Upper Kalihi Valley in Honolulu along the Kalihi Stream off the Like Like highway which is 5 minutes from the airport. This home is central to all things Oahu and 15 minutes to Waikiki and 5 minutes to Kaneohe. I am originally from Portland, Oregon USA and have lived here for 10 years, my wife is from Milan, Italy. The stream runs behind the home in the backyard. High speed internet and cable for free. We are near the end of a road so there isn't any street noise nearby.

There is plenty of parking space directly in front of our house on the street. The room has it's own refrigerator. Of course you'll have access to our morning coffee and kitchen and fridge. Kids are up at 8am. We also have most anything you'll need for water or beach activities including coolers, towels, umbrellas, and ice.

The pictures are of the large 10 window off the kitchen and carport.

We share our house with our guests and don't expect you to stay quietly huddled away without disturbing us. If you prefer to stay private that's ok too.

You actually don't pay a thing until you've already stayed here one night.

Because our prices aren't outrageous, we receive a lot of inquiries. I have had long personal discussions with people who haven't booked and I've had to tell them sorry because someone else booked first. Please don't make me have to tell someone no, it doesn't feel good. When you are approved that means you will need to accept the approval and then the room is yours.

Koʻolau Range is a name given to the fragmented remnant of the eastern or windward shield volcano of the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu. It is not a mountain range in the normal sense, because it was formed as a single mountain called Koʻolau Volcano. Our house is directly above Honolulu.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I only stayed for one night before leaving O'Ahu, and I just needed a place to sleep, and this place was just right for that. Elle & Kenny were friendly and helpful.

  • Very nice people; laid back and easy going. We only met each of them once as they were away after we first arrived, however, their roommate, the "other" Kenny was there. He is a really cool guy from the big island who is an avid beach/grass volleyball player and was so interesting to get to know. This is very simple, real local Hawaiian accommodation with a secure room and access to the main family bathroom and kitchen. There are fans but no A/C, however, the cross ventilation created by the open windows and the winds that come down the valley cooled us nicely every night. Bed was a bit hard but adequate and my daughter had a cot Kenny put in the room for her. There was a TV as well. Lots of nice big towels plus extras for the beach and Kenny even put out a cooler for us to use for picnics. They also have a very lush tropical garden. It is a secure inexpensive place to sleep and well located just off the Likelike Hwy. It is a little up the hillside so it is cooler than down on the coast which is just fine for the evenings. It was a great spot for us as we were exploring the non Waikiki, Oahu, so we could access Pearl Harbour, Honolulu, the North Shore and the East Coast routes within minutes without being bogged down in traffic yet we visited lots of local Hawaiian eateries in town that we so easy to get to. It is also very close to the airport yet a world away. With our GPS, coming in late at night we found Kenny's home very easily.

  • Kenny and his wife were very flexible through multiple arrival time changes. The location is very convenient to both Honolulu and the windward side of O'ahu.

  • Kind, accommodating family...not the place for someone with an allergy to cat hair.

  • I was only there for one night but it was perfect. It is close to the airport and all things Oahu. My three year old daughter loved to play with Kenny's kids. The place is very basic but if you are on a budget it is perfect place.

  • We had a great time with Ken and Elly, they are very hospitiable, friendly and welcoming hosts. They were more than willing to help with our requests and Ken gave us a lift home from the city which was so generous of him.
    The room was very clean and we were provided with everything we could have wanted.
    We would definitely recommend this to people going to Honolulu.
    Thanks guys!

  • Probably the best deal in Oahu. Room is very comfortable and clean and you fall asleep to the relaxing sound of a stream in the backyard. Hosts are accommodating and very friendly. I already miss their lovely kids. Very close to airport, Pearl Harbor. A good base from which to explore the island.

I've done some searching around these listings myself and understand you may have concerns booking a room in someones house over a reputable hotel. I have these same concerns. I am not here to have you pay my mortgage, or take advantage of anyone. It is expensive to live in Hawaii and with the addition of a new baby boy I have to find ways to keep our family secure. I have my concerns with having people into our home too. Please trust that I have your best interests at heart and we will do everything to ensure you enjoy yourselves and stay happy. Please take into consideration all the positive reviews and take the negative ones with a grain of compassion. As we continue to host vacationers we are constantly improving and accommodating those concerns they take issue with. Aloha A Hui Hou Kakou! :) Ken
