Interaction with Guests
Someone is typically always home. Our guests vary, but most are business travelers, transplants, and vacationers. Many are repeat guests, and are respectful, responsible, and friendly. We also have two very well-behaved kids living here, so please be kid-friendly.
Our house is located in a residential neighborhood of Honolulu (Palolo Valley). We are just outside the craziness of Waikiki but it's a hop, skip and jump away if you want to go there. We are conveniently located about a mile away from the H1 on-ramps and off-ramps. Our street crosses Waialae Avenue, which is home to many great eateries to satisfy any palate-- Town Restaurant, Big City Diner, Zippy's, Aloha Crepes, Azteca. Follow Waialae Ave. east for a few minutes and you'll be at Kahala Mall-- more eateries: The Counter, CPK, Chili's, Whole Foods, Starbucks/Jamba, etc. 3 supermarkets are also close.
Renting a car or moped while here is highly recommended, as the house is tucked away in the back of a valley. If you have a moped/motorcycle/bicycle, there is safe and private off-street parking. If you have a car, there's street parking. (You'll need to walk up a steep driveway to the house, so be comfortable with doing that.) However if you do plan on using the bus as your main mode of transportation, there is a covered bus stop for "TheBus #9S" right across the street from the house.
Note: If you plan on staying longer than 30 days and would like affordable vehicle options, just ask.

I had a wonderful time in my over 2 weeks stay at Brendan's place. Brendan opens his house, his home and his heart to the guests. He has done everything to make you feel like at home. It is big house, and I got to know other guests. You can have as much or as little interactions with others.
Brendan and family are great! They did a wonderful job of hosting us and making us feel at home on the Island. Whenever we had questions on where to snorkel or surf, Brendan had the answers. His family even took us on a couple outings to see the island. 100% would recommended and will stay again in the future.
We stayed here for a week and had the best time! Brendan and Christina were welcoming and made us feel at home. Great private room and all the amenities. Highly recommend!
Fantastic experience! I moved to Oahu to work at the University of Hawaii and needed a place to stay for a month until (turned out to be a bit more) until I found a permanent home. This has been an ideal situation. Brendan and fam are great hosts and provide everything needed to get settled whether you're on vacation or working. Staying here has allowed me to setup a great life in Hawaii. Parking on the street has been easy. There's always house events if you're interested (no problem to skip out on them if not). It's also nice to have other house guests staying who are often great sources for exchanging info on what to see and do while on island.
Christina, Brenden, and family were wonderful hosts. They made us feel at home. We were 3 ladies, stayed for a week, and rented a car (never had parking issues). Amenities were incredibly convenient (mini fridge in room w/ snacks!), laundry, well-equipped kitchen, dining table, coffee always ready in the AM!, snorkel gear (good quality!), boogie boards, beach towels, bath towels, TV w/ netflix etc. Honestly, everything you needed was there. They also provided great recommendations and were always so nice. They hosted a beach day and had the surf boards and boogie boards available to use. Location is convenient, you're just a short drive away from all the hot spots. If I were to visit Oahu again, I would DEFINITELY stay here again. The entire host family was very nice and chill and I'm glad I got to meet them.
This was our first Airbnb experience, and Brendan and Christina definitely set the bar high. We felt immediately welcomed and a part of their family the moment we arrived. They go above and beyond to help make your stay feel as smooth and comfortable as possible. Brendan has been doing this for quite a while and it definitely shows. He continues to try to improve the experience for his guests even to this day. If I were to come back to Oahu I wouldn't think twice about staying here again.
We had an amazing time in Hawaii! Brendan and Christina as well as the kids and Tofu the dog were welcoming and made us feel very much at home! Their house is very clean and Brandon is always on top of things. Great house, great trip, great people!

About the Host, Brendan
150+ great reviews and Airbnb SUPER HOSTS!! Wow. 'Ohana Nui owes it all to great guests with a fun fresh and positive outlook on their travel and vacation. Thank you everyone for making 'Ohana Nui what it is.
Aloha! We are Brendan and family, and we enjoy sharing our beautiful three story home, 'Ohana Nui, with respectful travelers from around the world. Brendan works in construction and loves to "talk story" and Stand Up Paddle Surf. The kids, though not here all the time, are two well-behaved, respectful children (ages 7 and 9) who love meeting all the "uncles and aunties" in the house.
We keep our home smoke-free, drug-free. We also keep everything clean and tidy. We do not have a party house by any means, just a nice place to relax and make new friends.
We have a small loving Chihuahua-mix dog named Aloha that lives with us in our home. You and your guest must be okay with being Aloha's friend while in the common/shared areas of our home, as she will surely want to be your friend.
The name of our home, 'Ohana Nui, means Big Family, which is what we aspire to be to our guests. We strive to provide all the comforts of home with quality and affordability and to provide a great experience with a local feel, just outside of Waikiki.
