About this listing
We are a great and safe place for single travelers. Centrally located. You can use the kitchen, living room, outside area to sit and drink your morning coffee or tea.
Quiet, small room in a 3 bedroom house, double bed, share bath, kitchen and living area. Convenient to everywhere on the island and close to downtown. We are 2 professional housemates that have shared this house for 11 years - one male and one female. One is a professional classical musician and choir director. You'll get the benefit of his playing nightly. The other was the volunteer coordinator at the local homeless shelter and is now retired. We are up on a hillside with lovely city and partial ocean views. There is ample street parking and getting to the 3 major freeways is less than a mile in any direction - we think of ourselves as being in the center of universe of Oahu. Easy access to Windward side, Waikiki, Downtown and Leeward side. Just 2 miles from downtown. 15-minutes to airport. Having a rental car is recommended for convenience although some very hearty and adventurous house guests have managed on the city bus.
My room is really only appropriate for a person traveling alone because the room is small and we all share one bathroom.
I'm happy to make coffee and provide a light breakfast if I know your preferences in advance. I hate to have lots of bagels on hand if you're gluten intolerant. I also enjoy giving input on local sites and activities since I used to be in the travel industry and am quite familiar with the island and its attractions.
House guests often take their coffee out on the front porch to enjoy the ocean and downtown view.
My cats, Picasso and Santiago, love house guests too.
You are welcome to use the kitchen. We make fridge and cupboard space for food. We also have a washer and dryer that you can use. Our home is your home while you are here.
You have access to kitchen and living room, front porch and back yard. We will make room in fridge and pantry if you need.

We are available to give suggestions on what to see and do, help with directions and have coffee in the mornings with you.

Other things to note

This is a quiet household - we watch TV with headphones to accommodate sensitivities to noise levels - especially while musician is playing the piano.
