E komo mai ! Welcome to Hawai’i
Come stay in a local neighborhood
This is like staying in your auntie's guest rooms, without breakfast. It is very casual and fun. Simple and easy going, This is not like staying in a professional B&B. It is a private room and shared bathroom in a happy home. With my brother, myself and 2 friendly, well-behaved dogs.
Rooms are located near shared bath and kitchen.
Bedroom is Furnished with a double bed, dresser, table, 2 chairs, a ceiling fan,
Additional Futon mattress and linens available to use on floor if desired or for additional guest
Flexibility is the key for us all.
I have put together a binder with menus form local restaurants, maps, bus schedules and other useful things
A breezy, bright home with a heated saltwater pool, and a hot tub. There is a chair lift to help a differently abled person get in and out of pool.

The houses are close together and you may hear noise from neighbors. Also in Hawaii we have single wall construction so we hear each other too. If you are sensitive to noise, earplugs are a good idea.
