About this listing
Aloha. Our home is a quaint space located on the rising ridge line of Oahu's Ko'olau Mountain range. From this vantage point you will have a spectacular view of the Island of Oahu, the crystal clear waters of paradise and an epic sunset each evening. Make sure to look for the green flash. **If you need more than one room we have a second room available for guests at the same rate as the room in this ad - (Go see our other ad "Hawaii Home Overlooking Paradise II).
The home is minutes from restaurants and shops in Kaimuki, which is a clean, safe and friendly neighborhood in Honolulu. Waikiki, beautiful beaches, warm waters and parks are a couple miles distance. If you like a good walk you can walk it as its downhill all the way. Just keep in mind the walk back is uphill. Plenty of safe street Parking is available for those who have a rental car. We suggest renting as its the quickest and most effective means to tour the island of Oahu. If you do prefer the bus, the bus stop is just around the corner. The home is close enough to Waikiki and the tourist market, but far enough removed for peace and quiet.
**If you are planning to rent to car, in addition to the standard rental companies, you can also check RELAY RIDES. Relay Rides is very similar to AirBnB in that an individual owner rents out his or her extra vehicle. The fees are typically lower than that of a corporate rental company. Do a quick (website hidden) search and you'll easily find Relay Rides.
The bedroom is available in our three bedroom home. Plenty of pantry and refrigerator space if you prefer to cook and eat in. A shard bathroom is available for guests; we rent out two rooms-"Check out Hawaii Home Overlooking Paradise I". There is one shower in the home that we all share.
Lastly, let me introduce 'us'. My name is Sean and 'this' is Erin. We are both professionals, I work in higher education at a local university and Erin works in the insurance field. We are both outgoing, social and athletic. We both surf and paddle outrigger canoes. If you are looking to try your luck at surfing we can lead you in the right direction. If you want to do a bit of paddling, we have the right connections. Hikes, we know of many. If you simply want to hit the beach and relax, we know the spots for you. At night we are relaxed; either reading, playing guitar or occasionally watching a netflix on the computer via wifi. We seldom hang around in the house as in paradise there are many other worthwhile things to do. Let see, what else....I am originally from Chicago and have resided in Hawaii for 7 years. Erin is originally from Hawaii (Kailua). Anyway, Erin and I occasionally travel from time to time, so we know what it's like to be in your shoes.
If you want to see some videos we made of one of our Hawaiian adventures check us out on YouTube. You'll need to copy and paste the titles into the your (website hidden) Search window or the YouTube seach window. AirBnB will block all links, phone numbers and e-mails until a reservation is made.
