About this listing
Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the air is filled with birds or crickets most of the time. The most amazing thing about this space is the view - soak in a 180 degree view from Diamond Head to West Oahu, even overlooking the planes flying in and out
Gorgeous home with a wrap around panoramic views of Diamond Head, Waikiki, Downtown, and the Waianae Mountain Range. There is something amazing about waking up to the sun rising over Diamond Head, and watching it set over downtown and the mountains! We have a beautiful outdoor lanai, perfect for breakfast and sunset dinners, with a minimal Japanese Garden on one side and a garden with flowering stephanotis vine, lemon tree, orange tree, and strawberry guava on the other. Full kitchen if you would like to cook, a BBQ grill, plenty of fridge and pantry space with many kitchen accessories, and some great restaurants very close by. Game room, living room / theater, and large shared bathroom.
Located just up St. Louis Heights, we are minutes from Waikiki and freeway on-ramps to any part of the island. Plenty of parking available if you have a rental car, and bus stop is located just down the street. The private room has a queen size bed, walk-in closet, desk, and high speed wifi as well as cable is provided.
My name is Shane, and I will be your host! I work on the TV show Hawaii Five-0 as a video engineer, and am also an artist. I love the outdoors and have lived in Hawaii for 11 years, so I can tell you many places to go whether you are into surfing, snorkeling, ocean sports, sightseeing, nightlife, and the best restaurants.
I love to travel and am familiar with what it's like to go somewhere new, so look forward to making your experience in Hawaii as memorable as possible!
Communication is key, any questions or comments don't hesitate to ask
Please keep the house clean, if you make a mess clean up!
Depending on the night, we like to reduce noise levels around 11pm
No smoking on the property, but you may do so in front of the garage if need be
Beautiful place. Incredible view. Comfy room. Immaculately clean. Shane is an amazing host and all around great guy. Best AirBnB experience yet. Consider yourself very fortunate if you land a stay at this gorgeous house in the hills of St Louis Heights.
I could not have chosen a better place to stay. This place was amazing. It had an amazing view from the lanai as well as an amazing host. Shane was very accommodating, respectful, and just an all around awesome guy. He is a video engineer for the show Hawaii five 0 and even brought us to the set of where it is filmed. This was def. an added bonus. We were very comfortable staying here and would stay here again next time we go back to Hawaii. I def recommend this place to anyone looking for an awesome space with an awesome host. Book book book !!!!
Shane is a fantastic host and made me feel welcome from the start. He has a fantastic view of the city which is truly one of a kind. His place is built for hosting guests with an awesome games room and an impressive movie setup. Shane offered great tips on places to see and eat. He is very knowledgeable about all of the great spots.
All in all, a fantastic place with an awesome host!
Shane was a great host with a fun house! The view was breathtaking and it was exactly what we were looking for. Shane has a lot of experience with nightlife and things to do in the area. Ask him for suggestions, and DEFINITELY ask him about his job!
I felt most welcomed, most comfortable. Everything was arranged in the best possible way. Shane is a great host and a very warm person. a The house is very clean, neat and well maintained. I had a great time staying there and looking forward to come back. If you are looking for a privacy, comfort, and at the same time for some hints on local life -this is the right place.
This house was amazing! What a find! It's like being outside downtown but right next to it at the same time. Convenient and beautiful.
Shane is a gem. Laid back, very knowledgable of the area, but totally not over the top.
We airbnb all the time for work and travel and this was one of the best, ever! Hope we can stay here again sometime soon.
Shane was as perfect of a host as we could have ever expected. From the first time we entered until our final goodbyes before we left, he was extremely welcoming and friendly. The house and room was well kept and clean. Shane and his roommate Mark are very personable and laid back, which gives the place a comfortable and relaxed feel.
The view of Waikiki from the balcony is spectacular and we found ourselves lounging out there for hours (sometimes dozing off too). The yard has a number of exotic fruit plants which was very unique to see, compared to home in Canada. Let's not forget the shuffle board, pool table and foosball table for killing time.
We'd like to sincerely thank you and Mark for the amazing experience we had in Honolulu. I would definitely stay here again on our next trip and would recommend it to anybody!
