Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • It is so nice when a host delivers exactly what they promise. The Hawaiian Hut, and its host Cheri, provided exactly what the listing portrayed during our two day. Cleanliness is important to me so the fact that the room and patio common areas were extremely tidy & well kept made for a very nice experience. The surrounding patio area is very welcoming. It has comfortable sitting options and a cute wading pool to cool off (email hidden) day. Thumbs up! I would definitely stay here again.

  • Everything I hoped for - quiet retreat in an ultra-convenient location. Outstanding value.

  • Loved the Hawaiian hut! Slept amazing and had everything I needed for my 7 day stay. Cherri was great and she even left (email hidden) in the fridge for my arrival. Thank you will def stay again if I'm around area.

  • Stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. Would highly recommend!!!

  • Absolutely no complaints here! The Hut was a perfect size for two people and had everything that was needed. The courtyard setting is beautiful and tranquil with the waterfall and surrounding tropical foliage. The hot tub was a very pleasant extra. Cheri was very friendly but not intrusive. I would highly recommend staying here.

  • My best friend and I stayed here for five days in February and it was a really lovely experience. The room was spotless, the amenities were wonderful and it was such a cute space. We felt comfortable and safe in the neighborhood and finding parking was a breeze!

    We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    We didn't get the chance to meet Cheri, as I believe she was out of town, but all in all it was a great time!

  • Wonderful place! I stayed in the Hawaiian Hut, and it was lovely. The property is very secure and peaceful, and Cheri is very sweet and personable. I extended my stay for 1 more day without a problem. I will definitely stay here again, and have already recommended it to friends. Thank you Cheri!

  • Un bon rapport qualité prix.

  • If you want a do-it yourself experience, then this is the place. Not our cup of tea to arrive without meeting the host and having to let ourselves in as a standard practice.

    Parking was quite difficult especially in the evenings due to the restrictions and guidelines of the host (I assume due to consideration of the neighbours).

    The location is freeway close and a short drive to shopping. If you love Elvis, then you have much to talk about with Cheri who is a rival to be one of his biggest fans.

    NB: You need to provide your own paper supplies and amenities that are often given freely by other host and the most meager motels.

    Response from Cheri:

    Alycia's review is a little misleading on the following statements:
    Meeting the host: Guests are made aware in advance in our airbnb listings that all of our 7 rentals in 3 locations in 2 states are SELF CHECK-IN. It would be difficult for one host to be in all locations at once, since we also offer daily rentals! Our self check-in policy gives guests the freedom to arrive any time after 3:00 PM. no matter how late at night (especially adventageous for our European arriving guests.)
    Re: The "quite difficult" parking, this property has the advantage of providing unmetered/unrestricted street parking. We simply ask guests to park in front of our property or on our side of the st. in respect for our neighbors since it is a residential (website hidden): Paper supplies, all supplies are provided upon check-in. Since we do not provide daily maid service in order to offer guests privacy & the lowest possible prices ( Alycia booked the lowest priced unit at only $50 night) and often have European guests who book for several months) it is up to guests to replenish their supplies when they run out, since we only charge a one-time $40 cleaning fee for this unit, which includes housekeeping providing new sheets/towels & our providing new supplies for each guest.
    I explained to Alycia when I returned to the property during their stay that a 32 yr. long tenant had passed away so I had to rush to the other property & replacing the used roll of toilet paper with a full one may have been overlooked, I offered them one, which they rejected.

  • The Hawaiian Hut was a great studio. It was very comfortable and clean. Cheri is a great host. The property is convenient to the freeway. I enjoyed relaxing in the morning hot tub and nice cold beer that Cheri offered me. All in all I recommend this place and would return.
