Okay so, just remember to be open minded of you are trying to travel cheap or are backpacking. We were backpackers and Marie is a very sweet woman but the place was a bit shabby. We don't really mind because we are pretty laid back, and the price was adorable but there were a few things that could have been updated. For instance the kitchen utensils and dishes were awful, we love to cook our own food when traveling and it was incredibly difficult to do so here. She also posts this housing on Craigslist so there are people actually living there for extended periods of time, not just traveling, and we refused to use the shower at all because there was cigarette ash in the bath tub. The people living there were actually incredibly nice, one guy offered to take us to the grocery store since it was much too far to walk. There are lots of bugs in the house at night, and also geckos but the geckos are really cute :) it's in a fantastic location if you love to hike which we do!! We recommend the trail loop at the top of the hill. It was quiet except for roosters in the morning. I'm from a small town with lots of animals so I'm used to that anyway and it didn't bother me. There is tv but you only get a few channels. We didn't have a ride out of the house because our uber app wasn't working and when Marie came to check out the room she helped us get a ride which was very nice of her! All in all I probably wouldn't book here again just because it was so far from the places we wanted to see and it was difficult to use the kitchen but it's not a bad place.

Marie was a great host. She confirmed our very late notice booking. Her place is a jungle oasis in the middle of Honolulu near great hiking trails in a nature park. Room was basic but everything we needed. Would stay here again. Just be prepared for early Hawaii wake-up Rooster calls :) We loved it.
First place I've stayed using Airbnb...Marie was very quick responding to my questions & helpful. The accommodations are similar to a cabin setting with other guests in different rooms, but sharing a common kitchen & bathroom. Other guests were friendly & respectful to each other. Totally secluded area with no road noise, but chickens do make noise in the AM but not in the evening. Great parking & secure. A good place to stay on a budget in Hawaii!
The room is in the middle of the jungle but really near downtown which is convenient, if you like nature and are use to outdoor activities and being around cats and chickens which where fun to watch this is the place for you at a good price, we had a shared kitchen, big bathroom and a common area, cable tv. Expect bugs, cute geckos and other animal life, it's like a cabin type of vibe, its like a 30 min walk to ala moana, near bus stops and Chinatown, we had privacy and key to our room we met another guest and had a great time hanging out outside and enjoying nature our stay was short but we had no problems at all.
