Born and Raised on Oahu. I love to travel the world and enjoy the great outdoors. I believe that laughter is the best medicine and to live life to the fullest and gratefully.
The room was nice, but small. use of washing machine and dryer is free, as long as you provide your own detergent. free parking on the street; the next bus stop is just a minute away (serving downtown, hanauma bay, koko head, sea life park). it takes about 5 to 10 minutes by bus to get to the next supermarket; due to their busy work schedule i just met them a few times during my 5 week stay. i wish i had more time with them!
By the end of your visit, you'll wish you saw Wainani and Evan more! I stayed with them for the month of November. With their travel schedules, I saw them only a handful of times. Each time they went out of their way to be gracious hosts.
Conveniently located for me.
Had a wonderful time visiting old haunts. Sandy Beach, Kahana Mall, Waikiki and so on. I hope to return there again soon.
Great place to relax as well.
Wainani and her husband Evan are really nice hosts. Their place is well located especially when you have a rental car and a perfect place to start exploring the island. We spend 6 days at their place and especially enjoyed to have our breakfast on the bench outside. The room might be a bit small but normally you do not go to Hawaii to spend so much indoors. So, that was absolutely no problem for us. Especially, the provided tour-guide books were a great support to find some secret spots on the island. Even though, both might be sometimes quite busy with their work, it was always nice to talk to them, and having Grace, their longer staying roommate, around.
The condo is located in a quite suburban area of Honolulu, only a short bus ride away from Waikiki - with a bus stop just around the corner.
The room is small, but big enough for two people. It offers a television, internet access and even a small private fridge. It's a very good place to explore Honolulu.
Great place! Was only here for two nights, but everything I needed was available. Easy parking and easy to get to. Clean room with a nice TV, refrigerator, and some supplies. Enjoyed the stay, and would stay here again!
Whilst we didn't get to meet Wainani, we found to place to be perfect for our needs.
The bed was super comfortable, the room was little but that suited us as we spent most of our time out and about. It was a great location for us, not in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but still close enough to get around. We used the bus to get into Waikiki and we did a lot of walking.
Wainani was a great host and kindly gave us a late check out.
I would highly recommend Wainani place
Lovely friendly hosts, away from the bustle of Waikiki, close to Hanauma Bay and Hawaii Kai and the Kuliouou Ridge Walk trail. The room is small but has everything you need.
Evan and Wainani are some of the nicest people you will meet in Hawaii,they made me feel right at home.Their place is in a great neighborhood,with plenty of street parking,and close to many of the things you will want to do.I would definitely stay there (website hidden) the bed is very comfortable
We spent 11 great days at Wainani's and Evan's place. Location of their house is excellent, very close to downtown Honolulu, appx. 15 min and also right on the exit way to the beaches on the east coast. It will take you appx. 20 min to get there from the Honolulu airport, depending on the traffic and their house can be very easily found. Nearby you can find some really nice trails (Kokohead, lighthouse and more challenging trail Olomana.) and also many lookouts.
Regarding the room, the size was just enough for us as we spent most of our time outside anyway. Also, you are provided with the following things you may possibly need: beach and gym towels, sunscreen lotion, you have your own refrigerator, TV, wifi, etc...You are also allowed to use a washing and drying machine and full use of kitchen.
But if there was one thing that really made our stay so pleasant, I have to point out that it is the hosts, Wainani and Evan. They were welcoming and the first moment we met them, we felt like we have known each other for years. They were thoughtful, recommended us places to see and they also made a great barbeque for us.
Oahu is a place that offers a lot to everyone and both, Wainani and Evan much contributed to our unforgetable stay.

It was a pleasure having Wainani & her boyfriend as guests in our studio. They were perfect tenants....very neat and respectful. We really enjoyed having them.
Thanks again and please come back, anytime!
