ATTENTION: For the months of January through March, I will only have one guest room available. This means there is only one full-sized bed that can accommodate at most two people. I apologize for any inconvenience.
10% MILITARY DISCOUNT - Thank you for your service! Let me know when you make an inquiry and I will send you the discounted offer. This must be done as an inquiry...not a reservation request.
My townhouse is centrally located on the beautiful island of Oahu. Located within walking distance of dozens of eateries, lots of shops (including Walmart), and a movie theater, it is tucked away off the main road, but offers easy access to three major highways. Two bus stops that run several major routes are just blocks from the house.
The guest room is furnished with a comfy full-sized bed and has a small closet, dresser, and bookshelf. There is only one bathroom to share, but I am usually up and out the door by 7a.m. All linens and towels are provided!
The second full-sized bed is in my home office. There is space for a suitcase, but not much else. I do need to know when you are making your reservation if you are requesting one or both rooms. This room is available at no extra charge to any party with 2-4 people.
The house has a cozy living room, large dining room and fully equipped kitchen. The large, covered lanai has a bar, large dining table, a gas grill and a charcoal grill. An in-house washer and dryer are also yours to use!
The house does not have cable, but is equipped with wireless internet, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and is fully stocked with plenty of DVDs and books to keep you entertained on rainy days. I also have plenty of snorkel gear to share and a boogie board for those so inclined!
My 14-year-old golden retriever Oliver and his indoor-only cat buddy LoverBoy adore affection and offer plenty of entertainment!
Street parking is available, and guest parking can be arranged once you have the make/model/license plate of your vehicle. The parking rules are VERY strict in my complex. You must ALWAYS park facing the direction of traffic. We must arrange for a guest pass during normal business hours. If you arrive outside of normal business hours, you must park outside of the complex until we get you a pass. Luckily, it is just a short walk through the gate. If you have GPS, the intersection of the gate is Palekaiko Street and Hooli Circle. Parking anywhere on the street is fine.
A pay-as-you-go cell phone is also available for your use during your stay.
During your stay, my home is your home.
Rate includes 9.25% "room tax" and 4.7% "sales tax" I am required to pay to the county and state.
During your stay, my home is your home. Please feel free to join me at the dinner table, or enjoy a meal on the lanai. The television is for everyone's enjoyment!
Interaction with Guests
I live in my home with my dog and cat and will be here during your stay. If I am watching tv or a movie, please feel free to join me! I love having guests, so you won't be imposing or bothering me in any way.
My neighborhood is a townhouse apartment complex of approximately 100 units. The entrance is on the opposite side of the complex, and is the only vehicular entrance. There are two walking entrances on my side of the complex, but no thru traffic. Most people who have lived in the area for years don't even know the complex is there. It is located behind a shopping complex that includes TJ Maxx, a drug store, PetCo, Babies R Us, McDonald's, Walmart, Starbucks, Wendy's and several other restaurants including a deli and ice cream shop. Across the street on the way to the bus stop is a 24-hour Fitness, a movie cineplex, a food court, Pier One, Ross and several other stores. If you are a Sam's Club member, there is also a Sam's Club and gas station.
Most homes in the neighborhood don't have air conditioning, and everyone's windows are open. The neighborhood is pretty alive during the day, but quiets down significantly after 9pm.
There are two major bus stops within walking distance of my home. One is just a couple of blocks, the second is a few blocks further. The closer stop serves most of the major bus lines that transit out west, up north, and into Waikiki. They also have 2-3 bike racks on the front of the buses and I have two bikes for your use during your stay (with a $100 deposit). (website hidden) maps offers very accurate route options and transit times if you use the bus feature.

Had a short but lovely stay at Angela's home. As she was out of town I was welcomed by her parents Kathy and Doug. They were really nice and had a lot of recommendations about what to do and where to go on the island. They even land me a beach towel!
And Lover Boy is the sweetest cat :)
I truly enjoyed my stay. Everything looked exactly like on the pictures.
We were welcomed by Angela's parents-Kathy and Doug. They were very kind and let us know what we needed to know and gave us a very useful information for us. House was located in a area close to everything we need. We had 9 year old twin daughters and they also enjoyed LB a lot. Unfortunately, we couldn't meet Angela as she was away. Thank you for letting us to stay at your lovely house.
Experienced a lovely, short but sweet, long weekend vacation away from the city in Angela's lovely home. Kathryn/Doug were very kind, helpful, and accommodating hosts while Angela was away. Wasn't expecting many local tips but they had plenty to share! Had some rainstorms one day and they gave us great options for museums, shopping, etc. The next day, we got beautiful sun, so they told us where to get some good snorkeling in and gave us plenty of gear to use. They helped us have a perfect first time visit to Hawaii. Would be a treat to come back one day and explore the rest of the island.
Angle was away so her parents were hosting. They were very welcoming and answered my texts when they were out. The cat Lover Boy is very kind too! Its too bad we missed Angela, as I'm sure she's lots of fun to be around! Nice house.
The bed is full size with a decorative frame that might be uncomfortable for those 6' or taller, as one's feet hit the end.
Otherwise everything was great.
Angela was a very helpful hostess. She picked up a stray member of our group from the airport. She laid out a map and showed us the best places to go on the island. Her place has two bedrooms for guests, not just one as listed.
Staying with at Angela's home was awesome. It was a great location for getting around Oahu and Everyone was very friendly!! i looked forward to visiting again!
I am a 35-year-old professional who moved to Hawaii four years ago to work as a civilian employee for the Army. I am an Army brat who has been or lived just about everywhere in the United States and a few places overseas. I am an avid scuba diver, hiker, and sailor. I am trying to get more into kayaking and surfing as well. I have kept very busy exploring as much as Hawaii has to offer soI have become quite the amatuer tour guide!
I love having guests and this is the perfect alternative for me to having a permanent roommate.
