Born in Michigan, Lived in Hawaii for over 30 years. Traveled a lot.
Perfect location, clean, safe...it has it all. We recommend it to our friends and family!
Dana's place was excellent and in a great location. She had bottle water for us when we arrived. Enjoyed our stay and woke up every morning to the sound birds. Nice safe place to stay.
Wonderful place to stay in a quiet, safe, & upscale neighborhood at the south end of Waikiki! Luxurious, comfortable bed - woke up each morning to the sound of beautiful & harmonious birdsong. Very walkable - my favorite restaurant, the Pioneer Saloon, was just a couple of blocks away. Enjoyed talking with Dana who is a very personable, light spirited, creative and an easy going host. She also lent me the use of a mountain bike and snorkeling gear while I was there. Thanks Dana for creating a very enjoyable home base for a memorable vacation in Oahu!
This is a convenient location to the Waikiki Beach and other attractions. There are some great local and inexpensive restaurants within a five minute walk from the room (Pioneer Saloon, Surf Side Cafe, Bogarts Cafe and Diamond Head Cafe).
Dana is a gracious host and has supplied many amenities to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. Before overpacking like I did, check with her to see what's included with the room so you don't bring unnecessary items.
Her amazing artwork is showcased throughout the room and you get the feeling that you're in a private bungalow with the breeze coming in your windows and the sounds of birds outside your window. It's very much an escape from the madness of Waikiki.
Only negative is the park located between the room and the beach is home to many homeless people. From a safety perspective, I used taxis if I was coming back to the room from Waikiki/Honolulu if it was after dark.
This is a great value for the room size and features that you receive!
I could heartily recommend this place. It's a perfect stay. Very close to everything but still a very quiet place. And Dana is an affectionately host . Thank you so much !!
Dana is fun and very accommodating. It is very quite location in a nice area. The space is small and basic but for one person it was was all I needed and a good value for the area.
Beautifully quiet after noisy SF apartment stay. Lovely bed. Dana kindly let us in early after a midday flight. House is "tired" but did not detract from a very pleasant stay. Good food/smoothie cafes close by. A good walk to the beach. Two hours solid walk/jog to get to the top of the Diamond Head Crater outlook and back. Ideal place to stay if you dont have transport and are prepared to walk.
This was a good match for our need in visiting Oahu--we don't really spend much time sitting in a room, but do want something clean, quiet and convenient. The room included enough to get the day off to a good start with fridge & coffee maker, plus the micro allowed us to warm up occasional take home food. This room is on a quiet street with easy access to Waikiki (not our direction) or off to the country. The price was good also. SL
We saw Dana as we arrived and as we left. She was a lovely host with helpful suggestions about our stay in the area. The location is great, near Waikiki and in a beautiful neighborhood. The bed was comfortable and the room included free Wi-Fi and cable TV. We did not spend much time in the room, but when we were there, it was comfortable and quiet. We would happily stay there again. Dana went out of her way to provide excellent hospitality.
Everything was excellent! Very nice and perfectly located neighborhood, the beach (and more) is into walking distance. The room was just as the pictures show it and had everything we needed (including towels for the bathroom and extra towels for the beach!). Dana was very nice and friendly and answered all our questions. I would definitely choose this place again. Mahalo!
