Interaction with Guests
Most of the time I'm out of home, so you'll be on your own.
Launani Valley is one of the quietest neighborhoods on the island. Very conveniently located in the middle of the island.
-There's bus stop across the street. It's a bus 305 that take you either to Mililani Transit Center, which is major transit hub for central O'ahu where you can catch connection to all places.
-Approximate driving distances:
25 minutes drive to Honolulu
15 minutes to the beaches of North Shore
10 minutes to Schofield Barracks
5 minutes to Wheeler Airfield, Foodland and Mililani Shopping Center
1. 'approximately' is a keyword- actual times may be significantly extended due to heavy traffic in rush hours
2. these are driving times and not a riding times, if you riding a bus times are significantly extended)
Free guest parking available, however it is necessary to let me know ahead of the time if you are going to use it, and provide me with license plate number of your rental as soon as you get it, so I can obtain parking pass from management.
Please keep in mind that since there's no on-site manager parking may be not available for "last minute" guests. I apologize for any inconvenience that it may cause.
Other Things to Note
It's a pet friendly unit, however I can accommodate only one pet at the time and I already have a 75 lbs boxer-bulldog mix, so unfortunately I don't allow guests to bring their pets.
Also if you can not describe yourself as a "dog person" or "dog lover" I'd rather recommend to consider other options out there. It's not because I don't want you to hurt my dog's feelings; people that aren't used to live with such a big dog in a household, may have hard time to deal with it on their vacation.
#1. Please remove your shoes before entering the apartment. That's the common custom in Hawai'i.
#2. Smoking inside is not allowed. Attempt to smoke inside will set off smoke alarms. Feel free to smoke on the lanai.
#3. Drugs are not allowed.
#4. If you're below 21 y.o. I prefer you to not drink alcoholic beverages within apartment limits.
#5. Recycling: before your throw away cans or bottles wash them, so residue will not attract insects.
#6. Absolutely NO random guests a.k.a. one nite stands. If you want to get laid in Hawai'i I recommend to rent a hotel room in downtown.
