Interaction with Guests
I am very busy running my boxing gym. So, I am not around very often. But, I do have my phone 24/7 so any questions guests might have regarding locations, attractions, and/or the unit, guests can feel free to call/text anytime during their stay.
The neighborhood is VERY quiet. This unit is in the back of the house, so no one bothers you.
To get the full experience of Oahu, a rental car is recommended. FREE parking is included with the unit. Should you need public transportation, the bus-line is a very short walk.
RUSH-HOUR TRAFFIC: Get either an early start or a late-morning start if traveling S/E bound. And, if coming back to the unit from town, get on the freeway by 3pm or have dinner in town and wait until after 6:30pm.
Other Things to Note
You are more than welcome to train at BOXFIT808 Boxing Gym...it's included with your stay! Get a great work-out and learn the SWEET SCIENCE local style!
During late summer month's, it can get warm on Oahu, especially when there are no tradewinds. So, Leaving all the windows and front wooden door open will help keep the unit cool.
Once the sun sets, its very quiet. The walls are single-wall construction, so guests and others in the house are asked to keep it quiet 10pm-8am.
No smoking in the unit but smoking outside away from house windows acceptable.
Due to the tropical climate, insects (ants, roaches, etc.) are ever present in Hawai'i so please throw food/drink-trash out EVERY night. This will help keep the bugs out.
There is NO cleaning FEE, so we would appreciate it if you could help clean/tidy-up, empty trash bins, etc. before leaving.
