About this listing
Your accommodation is the entire second story of our home - bedroom, bath, kitchenette, living room, and porch. You have a private entrance and your own off-street parking space. The bedroom has a double bed and cable TV and shoji doors for privacy. The sofa in the living room can actually convert to a queen size bed (not a pull-out). The bathroom has a large tile shower (along with the usual other fixtures.) Kitchenette is furnished with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, utensils, and dinnerware. There is a friendly tuxedo cat that may come and visit if you like, but does not have to be let inside. This may help if you are missing your pets at home. We also have three sweet dogs, but they live downstairs with us and have no access to your area. They may bark occasionally, but are not obsessive at all.
We live in the Hawaiian style. We do not have air conditioning or heating, but rather leave the screened windows and doors open to the trade winds. The temperature is comfortable up here in the valley. We are very laid back and are happy to afford you as much privacy as you like or alternately be available for advice and assistance.
We are looking for short-term guests who are either visiting the University of Hawaii or vacationing and would like a quieter more authentic experience than offered at the hotels.
Of course there is no smoking on the premises.
The entire upstairs apartment is your home in paradise. There is a flight of stone stairs to your private entrance, so be prepared for a bit of exercise. (We will help with your luggage)!
Interaction with Guests
One of us is usually home or at least available by phone if you should need anything.
Most people prefer to rent a car, but we are near the bus line and within walking distance of many shops, restaurants in the valley and the University.
Other Things to Note
If you arrive on the island before our check-in time we are happy to store your luggage, so you can sightsee or get a bite to eat while we prepare your room. Same thing if you still have some time to explore the island after our check-out time, we will hold your luggage for you. Just let us know what time you will be dropping off or collecting your luggage.
This is an old (albeit sturdy) house - please be gentle with the furniture and fixtures. Because the windows are open for the breezes, there is absolutely no smoking allowed on the property.
