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.
We had a wonderful experience with Laretta and Steve! They were so kind and helpful. Both of them went above and beyond what was expected. Steve was wonderful in helping my girlfriend and I find fun activities to do on the west side of the island. The room was neat and organized and the house was in a great location. We will definitely be returning! Thank you.
nice place. right by the beach. laretta and Steve were very welcoming and helpful. I feld at home. the home is very well organised and cleaned. I recommended it.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at the banana patch home. Laretta and Steve were such excellent hosts, answering questions about the local hot spots for seeing turtles and dolphins as well as providing maximum comfort for their guests. Best part was their lovely garden! Definitely recommending this place for future visitors to Oahu.
Place is clean and tidy and they have very cute kitty cats ! However, there's only one washroom for a few residents on the floor we stayed, so there's line up sometimes.
The host is responsive even at late night when the internet was down. He woke up to reset the router.
The place is far from northshore (1.5hours-drive far). Beaches close by are quite and beautiful.
We LOVED our stay at the Banana Patch. We felt right at home. Although Laretta was not home during our stay there, she told us to contact Steve if we needed anything. She gave us directions on how to locate the place so we had no problems getting there or finding our room once we were there. The room was clean, she left towels and wash cloth for us to use during our stay and she even had a bottle of sparkling juice for us and two wine glasses (since we were there celebrating our honeymoon). The shared bathroom was clean, and the shower was hot and had strong water pressure. The rooms were spacious, had a ceiling fan, and full length mirror all of which was nice when getting dressed in the mornings. We used the hot tub on our last night there and it was a great, relaxing way to end our long day of hiking. We met Steve on our second day there - he was very helpful and informative on things to do in the area. We would recommend the Banana Patch to our family and friends, and if we ever go back to Oahu, we will try to stay there again!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a wonderful time staying at Banana Patch! Loretta was very welcoming and helpful, and Steve gave us some great advice of where to go/what to see. The house was clean, and we met some really nice fellow travelers. Also, it was great to have snorkeling gear and other water sports items available to borrow. The area itself is just okay, but the beaches and hiking nearby are great. I would highly recommend getting a car for your trip; we tried to be frugal and started without a car, and realized quickly everything wasn't as accessible by foot as we were hoping, and the bus wasn't always timely or comfortable. If you're looking for cheaper car rental options, try Relay Rides. In general, we had a phenomenal stay and were really glad we stayed at Banana Patch!

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. :)
