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.
Paul was friendly and showed me around. The description was quite accurate and the neighborhood was quite nice.
It was a pleasure meeting Paul and his friendly playful boxer dog, Mack. Mahalo for being wonderful hosts during one week stay on the island. We were mostly outdoors enjoying hikes, snorkeling and the beautiful beaches and it is just nice to not approach any traffic in the area and the location is peaceful. No stress getting in and out of the apartment complex and we had a parking spot just for us. Paul was very accommodating. Nice apartment, cozy with a view of tropical trees from the lanai and sound of birds in the early morning. Luanani Valley in Mililani is the place where you want to be. It is middle of Oahu with easy access going North Shore and going to H3 is a beautiful drive with the view of the majestic Ko'olau Mountains.
Mahalo once again for your Hawaiian hospitality.
Paul was a great host - helped out where he could even though i was out of the house for a majority of the time at work and looking for an apartment. Location is great - close to the bus line as mentioned and the room was clean and spacious. The dog was very friendly and chill too. Much thanks, Paul, for everything!
The location is unbeatable and the size and layout of the room are perfect for a couple looking to spend a few relaxing days on the Island.
The room is really in the middle of Oahu, nothing seems to be farther away than 45 minutes by car. I drove to North Shore in about 20 minutes, to Waikiki in about 45 minutes. The appartement is in a beautifull valley next to a tropical forest. It is quiet for sleeping.
I loved staying here!
Paul picked me up at the airport, and provided me with car, great for going to the beaches.
The appartment is fantastic! The comfort, styling, the Bed, the Wifi Connection ,the bath, he had toiletries for guests, too ... everything was great.
It was everything exactly as described.
The house manual was very good with clear directions for using the wi-fi and TV.
Paul and Mack are incredibly nice and very helpful as well. Any question got answered, any need for help got satisfied.
Thanks for a great stay! When I will come back and the room is available I will snatch it up.
Pawel was a fantastic host. He showed us around when we got there (it's confusing to find which building is his-- he came right outside to meet us when I called him, confused). His dog Mack is the sweetest dog imaginable. Pawel was there when we needed him but also gave us space to do our own thing. When our friend's flight was post poned, he made acommodations and let her stay another night. The location is very good if you want to visit more than just Honolulu. We were about 30 minutes from the north shore, Honolulu and Kailua. Centrally located. We would stay with Pawel again any time!
It's was a great experience. The highlight of my trip was definitely the dog Mack. The room is just as described and displayed in the pictures. Very clean and organized. Pawel was really friendly too. Definitely a good place to make it you temporary home for your trip.
För oss var det ett perfekt boende centralt på Ohua med alla bekvämligheter och eget badrum. Trivsam djungelkänsla på balkongen och av speciellt barnbarnen (som bodde inne i Mililani) mycket uppskattat poolområde. Pawel var mycket gästvänlig och serviceinriktad och hans boxer Mack var nästan väl gästvänlig. Vi tog några promenader och han uppförde sig i stort sett exemplariskt (men det är många "hundkrafter" under huden). Detta var vårt första airbnb-boende och det överträffade alla våra förväntningar, stort tack till Pawel och Mack!
