  • We enjoyed this authentic accomodation style very much as it felt like living in a dorm a bit. Small room with everything needed, plenty of fun and super friendly people around, common TV night, good bus connection, we loved the free bikes (they are in great shape). We would recommebd this place to everybody who likes to meet people during their stay. Also communication-wise everything worked out perfectly.

  • Our stay lasted a month. We didn't have a chance to meet Amelia; she was away on a vacation of her own. I hope she enjoyed herself as much as we did where ever she was!. We did enjoy the co-op environment; for the most part it was quite quiet. The young people who live there were respectful and helpful. Our accommodations were small, compact, tidy and cozy. We had access to bikes, snorkeling gear and beach equipment. A full kitchen and laundry are also available. There was nothing essential lacking. The area is a bit of hike (40 minute walk) north from Waikiki which had its pluses and minuses. I enjoyed not being in the midst of the tourist zone and seeing a bit more of Honolulu. The immediate neighborhood is rejuvenating. There are lots of restaurants, etc in the immediate area and Amelia has done an excellent job of compiling helpful information for guests. We enjoyed the restaurants she recommended. Car parking is tight (true in general everywhere) but buses are easily accessible within a block. Pay attention to the directions to find the place; it was challenging to find the first time particularly because it was at night. Mahalo Amelia.

  • We used public transportation to go from the airport to the apartment. It was very easy to find. After a short introduction by the host we knew everything that was needed about the house and rules. The place is very good located and it just takes around 30 minutes to go to the beach. Also a very big supermarket is very close. We didn't use the shared kitchen, for us it was enough to use the cooking possibilities in our apartment. We enjoyed the stay very much even though the walls were very thin. ;-) But we didn't have high expectations and for the price it was very good.

  • From the minute walking in, we were greeted by wonderful roommates that were very friendly and welcoming. Throughout our week stay the private studio was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Having a private fridge, microwave, and other amenities was an added bonus! Overall an awesome experience!!!

  • Wow! From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by the fellow housemates, a card written from Amelia, and a welcome message on a whiteboard! The room was a cute little studio with a private bath. The room was clean and tidy. The housemates were so nice! One day, we even had a BBQ with them. The complex is close by everything (Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii Kai, Diamond Head). We'd definitely stay here again, and recommend to everyone! Thanks to Amelia and housemates!

  • I had a wonderful time at Aloha Abode. The people staying there were very pleasant and polite. The room was clean and had plenty of space. It was on the first floor, completely relaxing, and quiet too. The other people staying there made me feel right at home. Vin, and JD were great to have some laughs with, and helped with questions that I had. Although I parked on the street, it was not difficult at all to deal with. I had a nice experience, Thanks

Imagine~Believe~Create~Receive! Aloha Abode is a unique community in Honolulu with private units and common areas set up as a living room, kitchen, dining and backporch area perfect for hanging out and bbq. We are a group of educated students, grad students, professors, educators, researchers and young professionals (with the majority of us in our late 20's to early 30's, although there are a few outside that range) living the island dream. We are clean, fun, friendly, calm, relaxed, considerate of others, easy to get along with, enjoy each other's company (when we have time), communicate easily, and like to socialize when we have the time. We often have spontaneous dinners together, watch some tv shows or movies together, go hiking, take Zumba classes, head to the beach, spend time talking and hanging out in the common area. Many of us have busy schedules and lots to do outdoors or studying to do so the building can be pretty calm and quiet. We are a pretty mellow household, some of us are social, but definitely not big partiers or a party house. We keep things pretty chill, clean and organized. ABOUT THE AREA: We are located in the Kaimuki area on 2nd Ave. The building is walking distance to many grocery stores, a variety of restaurants, food, bars, etc. We are centrally located near UH Manoa and less than a block from Chaminade University.

Less than a 10 minute bike ride to the beach, Ala Moana or Kahala. We are conveniently located in the area where Kapiolani and Kapahulu intersect, and where Beretania and King come together, with super easy access to H1. Priscilla & I (Amelia) manage the building Aloha Abode in paradise. We love the island life in Honolulu and look forward to sharing it with you! We both love adventures, travels, and exploring the unexperienced. While living the island life, I love to swim to the windsock @ Kaimana Beach, yoga in Kapiolani Park, kayak, snorkel, hike, go to Zumba, eat great food, go camping, ride my bike to the beach, to 24 hour fitness and around the city. I am very social and have great ideas of things to do. Caring about others is my passion and I love living in a social friendly community. I have a Masters in Education from Loyola Marymount University, after completing my undergrad degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Women Studies from Seattle University. Priscilla loves to surf. She rides her bike down to many of the nearby surf breaks whenever she gets the chance. She spent lots of time living in Costa Rica and is originally from New York. Priscilla specializes in Reiki and massage:). We love adventurous and active travel. At Aloha Abode, we provide bikes, snorkel gear, boogie boards, kayaks and other beach supplies to get you started on many adventures right away. We live in a convenient location with many activities around us. We provide an activity binder with information on many nearby hikes, free bootcamps, yoga and running groups. We love having a couple guests to share our fun local experiences and insights. Everyone at the building is friendly and helpful. We love to meet you and provide a tour when you arrive with additional info as well as help you with anything you need during your stay.
