You will have your own entrance, room and full bath, parking, and your own outside garden space for lounging amidst the trees, listening to the birds, or just spending a little down time in between adventures. Wifi, linens and towels are included. Use of our laundry facilities is available for a nominal fee. We have a cruiser bike for you to use as well(URL HIDDEN) Please note that ours is a classic old Hawaiian home, which is nestled within a jungle oasis and was designed to be in relationship with nature. Because of this, and because of the reality of the life and climate of our tropical island, it is not unusual to have the occasional visit by a gecko, spider, ant or roach. This is just the nature of living on a tropical island and in a house which is surrounded by it's own mini lush jungle.
We are meticulous about cleaning our home and our rental rooms as well as using natural and non-toxic insect repellents regularly and before every new guest arrival, to keep the possibility of insects to a minimum. We choose not to use toxic pesticides in our environment for your and our safety and health. If the possibility of the occasional insect is something that would be distressing to you, I would recommend staying in an air conditioned hotel room, as that is the only way to ensure the absence of any insects.
We are friendly and fun loving, but quiet and respectful. We'd love to host you on your visit to Oahu!
We keep our living room and kitchen just for our family and appreciate your understanding. The pool and sitting area around the pool is available for your use in the morning till noon on weekdays and all day on weekends.
Interaction with guests
Please review our house manual which you can find on Airbnb under Basics. It has all the details you need for your arrival and check in. We have a self service check in policy that we ask you to observe. For your convenience, I have set up our space so guests can easily check in on their own upon arrival and settle in comfortably without needing to coordinate with me. I ask that guests follow the directions on how to check in and not come to the main house looking for me upon arrival as I may not be available at that exact moment(URL HIDDEN)Since I work from home and also am the live in caregiver to my elderly mother here at the house I am home quite a lot. However, I am often in the midst of work or care giving while I am home and can't always be available to guests in the moment and I do appreciate our guests understanding this. Because of this, the best way to be in touch with me is via message here on Airbnb. Please allow 24 hours for a reply message from me as I am only on the internet for a limited time each day and can't always respond immediately. I will get back to you as soon as I am able. Please do not come searching for me in the main house as I am often in the throes of work that cannot be interrupted, unless, of course, it is a medical emergency which you need immediate help with. I want to support you in being happy and comfortable during your stay with us, but do have limitations on my availability. I appreciate your understanding.
Please review the house manual and feel free to be in touch as you need with any questions to assure your arrival and stay with us will be a smooth and easy one.
We look forward to hosting you!
We love our neighborhood and think you will too! One of the best spots on the island, we are adjacent to multiple beaches (10-15 minutes walk), Kapiolani Park, Waikiki, wonderful shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as world famous Diamond Head lookout. Our neighborhood is close to everything you will need, but we are in a protected little nook, that makes you feel as if you are staying in the country. It's the perfect balance!
We have a parking stall for you in our driveway (please park within the painted lines on the right hand side of the driveway) and a cruiser bike for you to use. There are buslines just around the corner from the house that can take you wherever you need to go on the island quite conveniently. If you don't plan on renting a car I recommend taking an Uber to the house upon arrival or hiring Jay's Airport Shuttle to pick you up (he charges $30, which is a much better rate than a $50 taxi ride). You must arrange for Jay to pick you up ahead of time. You can reach him at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
