Located in a quiet neighborhood at the base of Diamond Head very near Waikiki and beaches, just 10 to 15 minuet walk. Great restaurants and shops just 3 minuets down the block. And a hike into Diamond Head Crater is less than a mile. On Saturdays KCC has the best Farmers Market, with lots of great food. It is less than a mile away. There is lots to do within walking distance of here. The Zoo, Kapiolani Park, and the aquarium, all about 10 minuets walking. Weekends has an art fair on the Zoo fence.
The room has a separate entrance and a private bathroom. It also has a queen size bed, small fridge, micro, coffee pot, cable TV, wireless internet. The bus is just down the block. Parking is in front of the house. No smoking please.

This is a convenient location to the Waikiki Beach and other attractions. There are some great local and inexpensive restaurants within a five minute walk from the room (Pioneer Saloon, Surf Side Cafe, Bogarts Cafe and Diamond Head Cafe).
Dana is a gracious host and has supplied many amenities to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. Before overpacking like I did, check with her to see what's included with the room so you don't bring unnecessary items.
Her amazing artwork is showcased throughout the room and you get the feeling that you're in a private bungalow with the breeze coming in your windows and the sounds of birds outside your window. It's very much an escape from the madness of Waikiki.
Only negative is the park located between the room and the beach is home to many homeless people. From a safety perspective, I used taxis if I was coming back to the room from Waikiki/Honolulu if it was after dark.
This is a great value for the room size and features that you receive!
I could heartily recommend this place. It's a perfect stay. Very close to everything but still a very quiet place. And Dana is an affectionately host . Thank you so much !!
Beautifully quiet after noisy SF apartment stay. Lovely bed. Dana kindly let us in early after a midday flight. House is "tired" but did not detract from a very pleasant stay. Good food/smoothie cafes close by. A good walk to the beach. Two hours solid walk/jog to get to the top of the Diamond Head Crater outlook and back. Ideal place to stay if you dont have transport and are prepared to walk.
We saw Dana as we arrived and as we left. She was a lovely host with helpful suggestions about our stay in the area. The location is great, near Waikiki and in a beautiful neighborhood. The bed was comfortable and the room included free Wi-Fi and cable TV. We did not spend much time in the room, but when we were there, it was comfortable and quiet. We would happily stay there again. Dana went out of her way to provide excellent hospitality.
Everything was excellent! Very nice and perfectly located neighborhood, the beach (and more) is into walking distance. The room was just as the pictures show it and had everything we needed (including towels for the bathroom and extra towels for the beach!). Dana was very nice and friendly and answered all our questions. I would definitely choose this place again. Mahalo!
Lovely place and charming host. Extremely well located (very close to waikiki and Diamond Head) in quiet and nice neighborhood.
The room was perfect for us and our baby. If we come back to Hawaii one day, we will repeat at Dana's!
Merci et à bientôt!
We had a great stay at Dana's place. What you see in the pictures are exactly what you get. The room is very clean and comes with a microwave. The private entrance to the room also means that you don't have to disturb Dana when you return late at night. Location is excellent and we love the diamond head mart and grill just round the corner. Will definitely be back!
The private studio apartment was excellent for my needs as I was away all day and returned late at night.
Good room if you want to stay just outside of Waikiki. Very close to the zoo and Diamond Head. Dana was easy to communicate with before the stay and answered all of my questions quickly. Thanks for the stay!
Terrific sitting-sleeping room attached to a larger home, but with a bathroom, refrigerator, microwave and private entrance. Near bus line and with street parking (made challenging at times by construction nearby, but workable for me. Very dark, no street lights, but entirely safe. Most times of year, A/C not needed. It's breezy. Dana provided a map. For me, this would have been challenging without a car but for an agile, active guest, walking would take you to and from bus line and Kapiolani Park. Dana was easy to contact and prompt to respond.
