Vanessa's place is a very well kept jungle residence. Tropical foliage surrounds the home, and big windows invite light into her lower level unit. The home is decorated with comfortable and inviting sitting areas. Outdoor shower is as cute and fun as it seemed! The kitchen and bathroom were very clean. Vanessa herself is a really active and interesting person, and a wonderful host. She had lots of recommendations for the island. I loved staying at her place and would absolutely rent this room again! For true out of towners: Palolo Valley is not a straightforward destination. It is very beautiful, but not a tourist spot like Waikiki. Vanessa gives directions and make sure to read carefully as (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps doesn't always direct you straight to Vanessa's house. ;) Parking is tight and easiest with small cars.

Beautiful surroundings! I had a really chill and relaxing stay here. Vanessa was a friendly and gracious host. Loved the outdoor shower and all the tropical garden plants. The trailhead right around the corner leads to an amazing jungle hike.

We had a great stay with Vanesa! The place is away from the craziness of the city but still very centrally located and accessible. Very private with nice trees and plants surrounding the property. The area is pretty quiet, but do know that there are people staying in the apartment above you (separate apartment and entrance) so you might get occasional noise from above. The house is clean and kitchen was available for our use which was nice. Outdoor shower was great! Vanesa was also friendly and hospitable, offering lots of advice and answering any questions we had. Good price too for the area. Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful time at Vanesa and Jon's place! It's literally in the jungle and showering outside was really nice. Their place was clean and the bed was comfy. We had free use of the kitchen and were provided with towels and showering toiletries. They also gave us suggestions on what to do around Oahu. We ended up doing almost everything they told us to and had so much fun! If you're looking for a quiet room without the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, then we definitely recommend staying here!

The house is in a nice location, especially if you want to be away, but not too far, from the tourist traps in Waikiki. The listing is very accurate; the house is clean, comfortable and unique with lots of personality; and the jungle experience is awesome. Vanessa and Jon are very good hosts. We loved the dog, too! We recommend staying there.

Hi! I'm Vanesa. I love to travel, brew beer, throw dinner parties and share my little oasis in the back of Palolo Valley. I work in the film business as a scenic artist and a set dresser and have a very unpredictable life. Everything I do is last minute and spontaneous and I like it that way. As your host I am there for you as much as you need me to be, even if I am away on business or adventure.

As a guest in your space, you will probably not see me too much. I am always out and about seeking local food & beer, scenery and adventure. I make the most out of my time away from home as I am a former east coaster/new yorker living on tiny island in the middle of the pacific.

Why am I renting my space on Airbnb? To fund my travel urges. All proceeds from AIrbnb go to the travel fund. With this in mind, I do my best to help you find what you need out of Hawaii- be it a night to crash after being out on the town, finding a home here somewhere, or squeezing the most out of a 3 day trip. I welcome all your input for our future travels or how to make this space better.
