The Space

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!

I have two mountain bikes (with helmets and bike locks) available for use during your stay with a fully-refundable cash deposit of $100/bike. The bus system here features bike racks on all of the buses.

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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

  • Angela's place was very nice and clean. The location was convenient! We had all we need and a great stay with her. I worried about her cat's smell before I made a reservation, but she assured that it won't be a problem because she uses a special sandbox system. Indeed, there was no smell (I tried to find the box, but I couldn't find it) and we enjoyed playing with her cat!

  • We had a wonderful time at Angela's place! Angela is a very easy host and helpful person. The space is not that big, but It is a nice place to start all your activities and it is close to the airport.

  • Angela was a great host. Although we weren't there most of the days we were still able to manage some time to get to know her and she was great! Her place was clean and had all the things she mentioned in her listing. Thanks so much Angela for being a great host!

  • Angie was very nice and easy to live with. Her apartment was homey and comfortable. I was there in March - there was no air conditioning but there was a comfortable breeze through the open windows. Sometimes you could hear the neighbors or their dogs, but it did not bother me - I slept very well. The bed was very comfortable. Nice visit!

  • We really enjoyed staying with Angela, Oliver &Loverboy. The room was really comfy and clean. Angela also gave us some tips about Oahu and even borrowed her snorkelling equipment. Thank you Angela.

  • Angela is a pleasant and hospitable hostess. It is better than I expected. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable.She did a lot more than her responsibility. we enjoyed the stay and her friendly smiles.

  • Angela is THE BEST host. I would definitely recommend her place to anyone who wants to stay close to the HNL airport. The bus stop is a really close walk from her place going just about anywhere, and she was even kind enough to offer us rides when she was available and her bus pass. She also welcomed us to a friend's birthday party dinner our first night and was incredibly personable yet also gave us plenty of privacy. The place is super clean, especially the shared bathroom, and the kitty and doggie were super loving! She also offered to let us use her bikes to tour the island, but we didn't need them because the bus takes you everywhere! All in all, great person and great experience. Thanks again!!

  • Angie was an amazing host, it was incredibly easy to get along with her, she was welcoming and helpful. My husband and I got to enjoy a taste of the city while doing tours and hikes. The bus stops are close and so is everything else. The room was comfortable and her bathroom is the cutest, very clean! It was a good experience for an amazing price!

  • Angela was helpful, a good communicator and accommodating.

About
I am a 34-year-old professional who moved to Hawaii three 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 and hiker, I have recently taken up kayaking and sailing, and I have been exploring as much as Hawaii has to offer. I have become quite the amatuer tour guide! I love having guests and this is the perfect alternative for me to having a permanent roommate.
