About this listing
Upstairs, garden view private rm, sleeps 2. Shared Bathroom close by. Large deck w/ view of Makaha Valley and Pyramid Mountain close by. Free optional informative tour of secret beaches, hikes and caves in this area. It's the more local side of Oahu, however, still has easy access to downtown Honolulu/Waikiki via H-1 Freeway. Half of the ride to downtown is along the gorgeous coastline. We share our tropical fish fruits and veggies w/ guests.
Spacious upstairs room located next to a kitchen with a bathroom just steps down the hall. Has mirrored door walk-in closet. This room is located in a home that is steps away from a bus stop that can take you all over the island. The warm, blue Pacific Ocean is 700 feet away where whales have been sighted from October to April every year. You can swim with the Dolphins just 2 miles down the road (for free). We have snorkel gear and an ocean kayak available for use with a deposit. Of course there are kitchen privileges with reasonable use of all common areas. We have a garden spa to soothe you after a day of surfing, snorkeling or hiking. Lots of fruit trees and garden greens for organic salads are available for our guests. Our goal is to provide safe, clean housing for all.
You will have access to 2 kitchens in which to cook and save some $ . There is a full bathroom upstairs and downstairs you may use. There are various fruit trees in the garden. Please feel free to eat whatever you find that's edible.
Interaction with guests
I live at this home, so can be reached there most of the time. You may call my cell phone: OR Steve - Mgr. (he also lives on site). We try to give you the "Nickel Tour", soon after your arrival, to acquaint you with the West Coast of Oahu : Beach accesses, viewing Turtles, Dolphins, Monk Seals and Whales (when they are here from Alaska).

We appreciate a smoke & drug free environment. Also, it's helpful when guests keep common areas (bathrooms & kitchens) clean and take their bottles and cans out to the bins for recycling. No bleach or peroxide, please. Also, no lit candles in the rooms.

Local nurse into health and wellness; there's a garden in the back most of the year. I like a serene, calm environment that promotes good healthy fun! Enjoy ocean activities, and I know little secret places that I'll share with you when you come. The five things I just can't live without would be connecting with my grown kids and my one grand child; Knowing Stephen is here, and the 5 beautiful, loving cats and 1 sweet, soulful dog that lives on this acre with us; Gardening and creating meditative spaces to go to and relax.Last, but certainly not least, would be creating a restful, clean place where guests from all over the world could come and feel "at home and accepted" during their travels. My favorite travel destination is Hawaii ! Favorite motto: "If you think education is expensive, try ignorance"." I would rather wear out, than rust out", "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".....
