Perfect vacation spot
Magnificent views, rainbows, serenity, privacy, quiet, fireworks, and comfort, only a few of the words that come to mind in thinking of our time spent in Manoa... We chose the location due to proximity to our daughter. What a surprise to have it turn out to be the best VRBO we have ever had!!WE could have spent all of our time out on the spacious patio.
Our hosts were wonderful, giving us our privacy and their assistance when most needed. We would definitely go again.
It was a pleasure meeting you folks. Please come again.

Beautiful and peaceful retreat
Mary and Dave have a spectacular apartment overlooking downtown Honolulu. The apartment was clean, quiet, and had all of the necessities. Mary and Dave were friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed the peaceful retreat their apartment provided. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to get away from it all.
It was a pleasure meeting you both. Thank you for staying with us. Hope to see you again.
What a lovely apartment! It had everything we needed to make our visit a memorable one. We especially enjoyed the lanai, looking out over honolulu and diamond head. The neighborhood was great, and it was easy to travel around the island from Manoa. Thank you Mary and Dave!
Thank you for staying with us at our Manoa Hale. It was a pleasure meeting you and we hope to see you again sometime.
The Ultimate Stay in Paradise
The interior was bright and windows were large. It had a grand view of Diamond Head, Manoa Valley, University of Hawaii and Honolulu. We enjoyed listening to all the different birds in the morning, looking out the window at Diamond Head and watching the sun rise all from the most comfortable kingsize bed. The evenings were just as nice with all the city lights. We also enjoyed sitting out on the lanai (deck) and swimming in the refreshing swimming pool. The owners, David and Mary were so nice and even left a card and present for my wife who was celebrating her birthday during our stay there. We would love to come back and stay there again.
Thank you for staying with us. We really enjoyed having you and look forward to seeing you again sometime.
I can’t say enough good things! This is a perfect apartment for a single guest or a couple. It’s centrally located, convenient to most everything. Even though Honolulu can be bustling, once you get here, it feels removed from the fray and surprisingly peaceful. The view is breathtaking. The apartment is well appointed: a very comfortable bed, a well stocked kitchen, nicely decorated and super clean.
The host, Mary, lives on the premises, and came to check on us soon after we arrived. She made sure we felt welcome and gave us suggestions for restaurants.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Thank you for staying with us! It was a pleasure meeting you and we are happy you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again sometime.
The beauty of this property is where it is located. It is centrally located on the Honolulu side of Oahu. So, most everything is relatively close by.
