Being from a small town the location was perfect for us. The suggestion to use the murphy bed on the ocean side was a great ides. Watching the sun come up from bed was the best. the accommodations were everything that we needed.
Enjoyed my time in Roland's condo and would to visit again. Information supplied was excellent and easy to follow. Some of the condo fittings are dated but everything works well and you're able to relax as the furniture and fittings add to the character. Views from the balcony are excellent and suggest, as Roland does, that you sleep in the Murphy pull down bed. An excellent experience.
Everything went very smoothly with this rental.
- The condo was clean and well kept.
- It is in a beautiful area - right on the water, with the mountains behind you.
- The complex has a private area between it and the beach where it is nice to sit and read.
- Very close to the Polynesian Cultural Center and to other North Shore attractions.
The Condo was great! It was just as described. We had everything we needed to be comfortable during our vacation, including everything we needed in the kitchen to cook with and recreation supplies (snorkeling gear, beach towels, etc.). We loved our private getaway and plan to return someday. The views from the balcony are breathtaking. Thank you so much for helping us make unforgettable memories.
Me and my boyfriend loved the condo. Nice and clean with everything we needed! Very good instructions from Roland who also was very attentive and helpful as a host.
Roland was great to work with and the amenities he left in the condo were extremely helpful, such as snorkeling gear and boogie boards. Having a lanai facing the ocean was fantastic. The sunrises were simply amazing. The location was a bit of a drive from Honolulu but also fairly quiet. We would definitely consider staying here again.
3 of us stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed our time! It is the perfect place to just relax. The condo couldn't have been more wonderfully located, right on the beach and short driving distances to grocery stores and restaurants. The only complaint is the noise level in the bedroom since it is on the road side, so pack some earplugs or opt for the Murphy bed and fall asleep to the waves:) 100% recommend this place to anyone looking for some R&R.
The host of this condo was very accommodating and helpful and even included suggested hikes, itineraries and local restaurants. He was professional and timely in his responses to my questions and his instructions were very clear.
I had no troubles finding and entering the property and the condo was just as described; With a great view of the ocean as well!
It was really nice that things in the condo were labeled and instructions were everywhere, it really helped to find everything that we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked and it was super convenient to have a washer and dryer to use in the condo. The neighborhood was really quiet and the property supervisor was helpful and accommodating as well. If you are looking for a peaceful vacation with a view, this is a great place to stay. Lots of amenities and things to do not too far away (grocery stores, food trucks, Polynesian Cultural Center, Haleiwa, Sunset beach).
We just returned from a week-long stay and couldn't have been happier with the location of this property! The views and sounds of the ocean from the unit were amazing and there were only a handful of people on the beach each time we went out (btw, for the beginner snorkeler, there are tons of fish and small reefs right off of the beach outside!). We slept comfortably on the murphy bed in the living room and having a w/d in the unit was a huge plus. Checking in and checking out were a breeze, we will definitely check availability here on our next trip to Oahu!
Roland was an awesome
Fun guest and we really hope to see him again when he is back in Hawaii! We had fun hitting Waikiki with him and introducing him to some of our friends. Hope to see you soon!
Roland is a fantastic guest - clean, friendly, and well traveled. Also a very funny man! He is a great communicator and made sure I was always well informed of his plans. I would be glad to host him again any time!
Roland was a lovely guest, friendly, clean, quite & fun. Got to talk story and hang out a bit. I would host him again anytime & surely hang out next time he's in town. Another wonderful Airbnb guest I can call a friend. Hope to see & host him again.
I met Roland 5 years ago and we have been friends ever since. He has an eye for detail and a streak of spontaneity. Roland has earned my trust and if he was renting a place I would definitely stay there. Oh wait... he has a place- right here on Airbnb!
If you are renting from him, or to him, I guarantee you will pickup some positive vibrations.
Roland is a great dude. He was my personal trainer for a while, until I started getting lazy =) I haven't stayed at his place in Hawaii yet, but I hear great things about it!
Hi, Roland. We truly enjoyed staying at your condo on Oahu. The place was comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. The surroundings are just gorgeous! Loved being between the ocean and the mountains. The beach was fantastic. We saw fish, crabs, and even a sea turtle! We enjoyed a lot of activities in the area. We went horseback riding at beautiful Kualoa Ranch, Robert and I played 9 holes at the nearby golf course, and really enjoyed the snorkeling and Shark's Cove. We appreciated all of the information you sent to help us enjoy our vacation to the fullest. The hikes in the area were breathtaking especially Maunawili. We certainly weren't going to go hungry with your recommendations to check out the shrimp trunk across the street and that cute little Thai place in Laie. Thanks again for everything, and we hope to be able to visit again soon! A hui hou kakou. ~Robin
Aloha, Roland! This condo was perfect for my birthday trip over President's Day weekend! We were four ladies and the condo had enough space for us to sleep & we enjoyed waking up to the view of the ocean, beach, and palm trees from inside and on the lanai. The condo was far enough from the concrete jungle and massive tourists in Waikiki, but close enough to North Shore, Sunset Beach, horseback riding at Happy Trails, hiking to the waterfalls, and lovely Waimea Bay...we really felt relaxed and were able to feel what the island of Oahu and the Hawaiian Spirit had to offer!! We would definitely stay with you again, Roland!! Mahalo for all of your help in planning our trip!!

We got acquainted with Roland back in 2009 when my wife and her girlfriends wanted to take a trip out to Hawaii. They wanted a place right on the beach and away from the hustle and bustle of downtown where they could do a lot of outdoor activities. One of the things that impressed us about them was how helpful they were with suggesting places to visit and activities in the area. They even recommended a car rental place that had the best prices. We exchanged about 10 emails, and they promptly answered all of our questions. We felt like they really cared that we would have a good time. I didn't have a chance to make it out, but we're planning a trip together as I write this!
