Street parking on Umalu Street, 3 driveways before us. Most of our neighbors have been here 30 years. the #7 bus is 7 driveways from us.
we are ohana style being respectful of one another and sound late at night. Everyone has different schedules so the house is very quiet. sometimes we have paella or potluck. sometimes people are out discovering the island and its beauty.
The valleys are often a hidden treasure. we have Ice Ponds a triple waterfall at the end of the road, a dojo, and 3 healing centers. It is peaceful and you can feel the energy shift as you drive closer past the last bus stop. Close to town and the east side of the island, but it feels a bit more like country.

Wenn man als Europäer zu Lynn kommt, muss man sich im klaren sein, dass es sich um ein altes Haus handelt, welches nicht unserem Standard entspricht.
Aber, Sie und Ihre Angestellten sorgen immer dafür, dass die Zimmer sauber sind und bemühen sich darum, alles Instand zu halten.
Nach ein paar Tagen fühlt man sich bereits sehr wohl und gut aufgehoben, die Freundlichkeit ist sehr ausgeprägt und bei Fragen steht sie mit allen ihr zur Verfügung stehenden Mittel gerne Hilfsbereit zur Seite.
Ich war 4 Wochen ( ganzen März ) bei Ihr zu Hause, ich kam als ein Fremder und bin als Freund gegangen.
Die Lage ist etwas abseits von Honolulu, aber mit dem Auto via Highway in 15 Minuten, mit dem Moped in 25 Minuten und dem Bus in gut 35 Minuten erreichbar.
In der Nähe befindet sich ein Wasserfall (max. 30 Minuten zu Fuss ) welcher eine sehr gute Abkühlung darstellt.
Per Auto ist es sehr einfach Ausflüge in alle Richtungen zu unternehmen, der Flughafen ist 15 Min entfernt, Pearl Harbour 20 Minuten, die Westküste gute 50 Minuten, Hanauma Bay max. 1 Stunde. Auch mit dem Moped lässt sich von dort aus sehr viel erkunden.
Viele nutzen die Unterkunft als reine Übernachtung Möglichkeit und unternehmen Tagesausflüge von früh bis spät.
Da ich genug Zeit hatte, habe ich oft erst zum Mittag das Haus verlassen und dabei die Freundlichkeit aller erfahren dürfen.
Sollte ich wieder mal nach O´hau fliegen, werde ich sicher bei Lynn übernachten, da ich die Freundlichkeit und Familiäre Art sehr zu schätzen weiss und mich wohl gefühlt habe.
Thank you Lynn :-)
This house is perfecet for all who needed to calm down for a while. Lynn is a wonderful, warmhearted host-giver and I would return to this place anytime.
Lynn was a very gracious and welcoming host. When I arrived in Oahu she picked me up from the airport so that I would not have to take a bus or an expensive taxi. When she picked me up from the airport she gave me a mini tour of some places to see in Honolulu/Waikiki. I stayed with Lynn for about 2 and a half weeks. Staying with her was a great choice as it gave me a real feel for what living on Oahu is really like. She is very knowledgable and willing to help in whatever way she can. If you are looking for a warm host and a feel for the real island of Oahu then Lynn is the way to go.
A soul is truly blessed to cross paths with Lynn. She is a wayshower and guide for the people that show up and need her assistance for some reason or another. She is helpful, loving, and truly kind. I am so grateful to have found Lynn's home and the colorful people that stay there. I found what I was looking for and we loved the room...clean, comfortable, and plenty of space. The rain was like a lullabye and the neighborhood is beautiful. . Great for nature lovers, an interesting alternative to touristy Honolulu. I highly recommend a stay here.
I stayed with Lynn for the duration of my eye surgery appointments and it was a great time. I met a lot of great people and got to experience Hawaii from a locals point of view.
Staying with Lynn & the others here is like home away from home. This is exactly what I look for in my travels. Every day brings surprises, people to hike with, go to the beach, share meals or stay in, chat and play music. If your heart is moved by Lynn's introduction, follow it! This island calls you to listen to your intuition and flow in the beautiful river of life. Aloha!

Since I was 3, I have been able to hear and see Spirit. So psychic readings and palmistry is also something we offer clients.
Love to travel will be going to Italy again this year. Flexible and easy to get along with. Enjoy new cultures, traditions and sharing.
We also have healers that come to work on visitors with appointments. Sharing some of the traditions here in Hawaii.
Enjoy traveling and teaching, music, learning Italian, riding motorcycles, networking with people who respect and share with one another.
