We enjoyed our stay, the location of the home is walkable to Starbucks, Safeway grocery store and Leonard's bakery.
The home is well decorated and equipped with all the kitchen appliances. The host provides filters as well as coffee beans.
Six people stayed, and we used two sofa beds in the living room, which are pretty comfortable. However, the home is with only one bathroom, not a timesaver for a family on a busy morning. Also, there is no air conditioner in the living room. Overall, it is a great place to stay. We won't hesitate to come back again.
It was great experience staying at Kari's place. It's a private house with two floors. We stayed at upper floor which was a 2-bed suite. The location is really convenient. It's within walking distance to lots of Japanese restaurants if you are a fan of Japanese food. Also it's within walking distance to Safeway. For a 5 minute drive, you can get to Waikiki. We really enjoyed staying there.
I had the opportunity to stay at Kari's place last week. It was very well kept inside and out. I came with a larger group so we occupied the the 2 bedrooms and the private cottage connected in the backyard. It was nice that laundry was provided too. The location is near the H1 and minutes from Waikiki. We could literally walk to Leonards in a few minutes!
The house is exactly like what is shown in pictures. Great experience. Honestly, I am really a sensitive person. Before actual check in, I have concerns about nosy since the house just is one block away from Highway. However, it's so quite only few airplane can be heard. Super clean, beds are really comfortable.
We rented both the main house and the lower guest cottage. What a charming place! There is greenery all around the front for privacy. The backyard is very lush and green. We cooked many meals at home using the bbq and walked to Starbucks and the local grocery store each morning, which was a convenient 5 minute walk away. The house is central to everything great in Honolulu- the famous bakery, the famous vintage Hawaiian shirt shop, Whole Foods and Waikiki if you desire that! Lastly the beds and pillows were super comfortable. Would gladly stay here again. Big thumbs up!
