I was born in Hungary, lived in hawaii for 20 years.
I love the hawaiian cultrure, ocean acvtivities, hiking, nature generally speaking.
Had some guests come stay on Oahu for a week. It was great for them to have their own space, and very quite! Maggie was a great host!
Maggie was great to talk to and very helpful. The room was exactly as specified. The house is in a great spot to snorkel the famous Hanauma Bay (5-10 minutes by car.) Maggie has just about anything you would need in the room already, but she was great to get us anything else we needed (scissors, information, etc.) I would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful time staying with Maggie. She has a lovely home and two friendly dogs who greet you. She gave us some tips on where to go and some activities we may enjoy. I definitely recommend staying with Maggie if you want to be away from the noise of in-town hotels of Honolulu.
Lovely room in a waterfront home in the lovely community of Hawaii Kai (a little beyond Honolulu and Waikiki). There is access to the shared kitchen, and a porch on the waterfront. Maggie is great--she had good suggestions on activities. There was snorkeling gear available to borrow, and sunscreen and aloe for community use. She does have two very friendly dogs--we are dog people, so enjoyed getting to pet them.
Maggie is very nice and the room is fine and clean. The location was great for me as I was visiting family nearby. It is a lovely spot!
Maggie is a great hostess. Room is smallish for two, which I knew when I booked, but clean and comfortable and a great place to adventure out of. Excellent price. Room is exactly as it appears in the photo, which I appreciate. (If you like to hang out in your room, book her larger room.) This room was great for us. Great view out to the North West from her back yard, and it is totally cool looking out over the little lagoon she lives on. FANTASTIC LOCATION FOR CRUISING THE ISLAND. IF YOU LIKE BEING STUCK IN TRAFFIC, BOOK A ROOM IN HONOLULU. It is less than 5 minutes to the main road that circumvents the island. I can take or leave dogs, but Koa is a good boy and Oreo is a sweetheart. They have very good manners in the house too. They bark to warn of anyone coming in, then shut up. Something I fervently wish my neighbors' 127 dogs would do. Will see you again soon I hope, Maggie.
Maggie was an awesome host and made us feel very welcome. The room has very easy access which was nice for us since we had to go back and forth to a nearby clinic. Clean, spacious for 2, and some very very nice dogs to boot. Would definitely recommend!
My houses were all reserved in Hawaii. I was delighted to find her wonderful home. As an owner who rents, I know what the standards should be. I had a wonderful room, all the amenities and a great bathroom right around the corner. Her dogs are wonderful and she is a great hostess. It's a bit of a drive from the airport, about 40minutes and more with traffic but worth it in the long run. Don't stay at some cheap hotel, this was just perfect for me to get some sleep. Very quiet area which is a big plus and yes, right on the water. Easy to book and I would recommend it to anyone traveling and want to be near Wakiki without being in the mess of it. Nice private, residential area.
We loved the stay at maggies place. She is a wonderful guest and an even wonderful person. The stay was very comfortable and maggie provided with snorkel sets, beach towels, boogie boards and helpful advices.
She picked us up from the airport as well.
Both the dogs koa and oreo are very adorable and friendly, had a great time with them.
The room had a big tv, microwave, a small fridge, AC which we used.
Its a nice quiet place away from the hustle of the city, ample parking on the street.
There was a toaster as well which we did not use. Kitchen was avaialble for use and for anything else just reach out to maggie and she was happy to help.
In all a great experience, next time when we are at the island we will be at maggies place for sure.
We had an excellent 9 days at Maggie's place. It felt like coming home every day! The place was clean and the location was perfect only if you want to climb Koko Head, go to Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach, Waikiki, Makapu'u Lighthouse and beach, or any of the rest of the island. We enjoyed our visit immensely and can't wait to return to visit Maggie and the dogs!
