About this listing
How about experiencing a true aloha filled vacation in a local home overlooking the city of Honolulu? Skip the high-rises and pushy salesmen of Waikiki and step back into what Hawaii is all about. Relaxation, good vibes, and great views.
Waikiki is CRAZY! Sometimes it's just too much. Those looking for a bit of respite from the madness yet still right next to the action will find this room in Kaimuki the perfect alternative. Nestled on the hillside of Whilemina Rise, this property hosts two homes, a studio, and terraced gardens. On the top terrace sits the wine barrel hot tub and lawn. A short walk down the hill will find you in Honolulu's favorite quaint town...Kaimuki. Home to some of the best Restaurants in town suiting all budgets, bars, and other fun shopping opportunities.
Your hosts Louise and Kahi can guide you to the secrets of Hawaii allowing you to experience true Hawaii. One of the best hikes on the island is just up the road and some of the best beaches are just a short ride away. Public transportation is available just a block away and can get you almost anywhere on the island as Oahu's public transportation is one of the nations best.
Grocery stores are close so you can cook your own meals using our stocked kitchen. You can also help yourselves to oatmeal, home made granola, fresh eggs from the yard, and fresh veggies when available.
The room in our house is unique from others on this website because it is an opportunity to live as a local in an unforgettable setting. We live in the house with you and sometimes the other airbnb room is booked too. But it doesn't get crowded, although you may share a bathroom if both rooms are booked. The property has all the seclusion you could want to just find your special spot to soak in the view, or soak in the tub, or BOTH!
Our home is your home. Cook, nap, lounge, soak, cruise, read, sleep, whatever.
As much as they like and never more than they need.
Kaimuki is the coolest neighborhood in Honolulu because it has a feel, charm, and a main street. Every type of food you could imagine is served within a short walking distance.
Fresh coffee from one of the best baristas in town is a two minute walk away.
The residential feel of the neighborhood will make you feel as though you are living as a local, which you are. Skip Waikiki overnighters and just go check it out
Yes, the bus stop is right down the road (3 minute walk). There is also the taxi service UBER, now there is Lyft, and then always the reliable local taxis too.
You can rent a car if you like. Or a moped preferred as parking is tight.
THE TAP WATER IS GREAT. You do not need to buy single use plastic water bottles. We have reusable bottles you can borrow. We run a non-profit called Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii so we are cleaning beaches often and reducing plastic use always.
Smile you are in Hawaii! Enjoy yourself. No smoking in the house. Close the doors when you leave. Turn off the waterfall if it's after 10AM and you are leaving. Make sure you turn off the hot tub after you use it and turn off the backyard lights. In other words, try to conserve energy where you can but enjoy yourself and don't sacrifice your comfort for our energy consumption reduction goals. You come first.
