Tolle Unterkunft mit fantastischer Aussicht!

  • 5 of 5

Diese Ferienwohnung können wir nur weiterempfehlen. Sie liegt 15 Fahrminuten vom Airport entfernt in einem ruhigen Wohngebiet und bietet eine fantastische Aussicht über Pearl Harbor. Die Gastgeber sind ausgesprochen freundlich und zuvorkommend, in der Wohnung selbst findet man alles, was man braucht. Frühstückswünsche wurden vorab per e-mail erfragt und bei Ankunft fanden wir alles in der Wohnung vor. Eine willkommene Erfrischung bietet der Pool vor der Tür, welchen wir zur alleinigen Nutzung hatten - perfekt. Sollten wir wieder mal Honolulu besuchen, so würden wir immer wieder bei Terri und Mike wohnen wollen - die Ferienwohnung hat uns absolut überzeugt und wir wären gern länger als 4 Tage geblieben.

Mahalo Mike and Terri for our 3 nights at Rainbow Inn. We found it well equipped and nicely maintained, and it was a pleasure staying here.

You won't want to leave.....

  • 5 of 5

this beautiful vacation home! We're 61 and 65 and came with our "surprise" 12 year old daughter! The pool was a hit for her and the views were a hit for us! My husband sat and watched the planes in the far distance as their flight path took them to the Honolulu airport and the ferry taking folks to the Arizona Memorial. The fireworks for New Year's Eve were spectacular! The kitchen was stocked and our hosts were most gracious. It is easy to get to everything! Don't want to cook and need a food court....just down the hill (literally). Need a Walmart for inexpensive Hawaiian souvenirs? Down the hill and turn right...less than 10 minutes and you're there. Heading to Waikiki? Down the hill....hit the freeway and in another 10 minutes you're there! The is the PERFECT location for anyone who wants to enjoy some down time, but also wants to be near some of the "action!" Aloha!

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Rainbow Inn in Aiea, Oahu. We stayed there 4 days (October 9-13, 2017). The view of Pearl Harbor was just incredible. You could look directly on the USS Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri. We really liked the location, outside the hub-bub of Honolulu and a good starting location for our visits to other sights on Oahu. The correspondence with Terri and Mike before we arrived was excellent. Mike greeted us and was a wonderful host. We had our own parking spot and the neighborhood was very quiet.

There was an unbelievable choice of food in the fridge for our breakfasts. English muffins, butter, jellies, yogurt, coffees (regular & decaff), teas (regular & decaff), several cereals, juice, water, soft drinks, milk, peanut butter, and several other items. There were even chocolate covered macadamia nuts! The kitchen was stocked with all the appliances that you would normally have at home. The bathroom was stocked with plenty of towels and wash cloths along with soap, shampoos, and several other bathroom items on the sink. You could tell that lots of thought and experience had gone into setting up these living quarters. The towels were also changed daily! Another great asset was the pool right outside the door. It was just wonderful. Also provided were beach towels and pool items like blown up inner tubes and other things that allow you to float in comfort. We really enjoyed our time in the pool.

There was plenty of space which included the bedroom (bed, night stands, desk and chair, TV) along with a sitting area with a fold-away couch/bed that looked out on the pool and Pearl Harbor. We enjoyed eating our breakfasts at the table in the breakfast area. Also plenty of closet space and hangers for clothes. We would have preferred a queen or king size bed but the double bed worked. The apartment was air conditioned which worked well for the bedroom but left the sitting area and kitchen rather warm especially during the day. Getting our 2 large pieces of luggage down the hill into the apartment was a bit of a challenge for 2 people in their 70's. It was even more of a challenge getting the luggage back up the hill and into the car. We made it.

Note: the information book was very helpful.

We really enjoyed staying at the Rainbow Inn and would do it again even considering the few negatives. Mike and Terri have done a wonderful job in making their apartment feel like home. We would definitely recommend it.

Wouldn't change a thing!! OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a 3 night stay near Pearl Harbor and Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay, et al, then on to a North Shore rental and a final night in Waikiki. (Hyatt Centric did not meet our budget but wanted to experience that area for our final day.)

Even with pictures and just never know. After 12 hours of travel, renting an auto and hoping Siri would help us get where we needed to be, we arrived at the Rainbow Inn.

Teri met us at her front door with a hug and a big Aloha!

Our first look at the Rainbow Inn brought big sighs of relief and great joy. Yes, it looks EXACTLY like the pictures! The view was absolutely stunning from inside and out, I couldn't stop taking pictures!

Yes, Teri had the frig stocked DAILY with pre-selected items but it was also chock full of most anything you would need in a vacation rental, down to several cold beers, tropical sodas and condiments kindly left by prior guests! How awesome that we didn't need to make a trek out for coffee, jelly, mustard, ketchup, salt, pepper, etc! It's the little things, folks!

The bathroom was spacious and also filled with travel items including shampoos, body wash, sunscreens, lotions, appreciated!

We had a room full of beach items, big fluffy beach towels, snorkel gear, chairs, pool floats. I don't think there was a single thing that we said "I wish we had..." that the Rainbow Inn didn't have!

The window AC kept the apartment cool at night and during the day, the breeze through the windows was so refreshing. The kitchen was well stocked, the bed extremely comfortable and did I mention the VIEW?? We saw THREE incredible rainbows in our time there, each in a different part of the magnificent view. So very quiet with nothing but birdsong and the breeze through the lush vegetation surrounding the Inn.

Mike was out of town so we didn't get to meet him and we never saw Teri again after our initial greeting but knew she was just a phone call away.

Communications prior to our stay were outstanding, Teri went above and beyond to promptly answer any questions that we had. She also contacted me to mail earrings I had left!

If we ever make it back to Oahu, we'll be staying at the Rainbow Inn for our entire visit.

Aloha NO, Teri, we can't thank you enough!

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our (hopeful) expectations were surpassed. Upon initial booking, Terri and Mike were so helpful in preparing for our stay. Upon arrival and throughout our stay we discovered countless little, but very important, things that made ALL AWESOME! The location, view, pool, apartment is perfect, comfortable and roomy (for 3 adults). The extra touches involved beach towels, toiletries, sunscreen, beach/pool accessories, food/drink starters, etc. Very, very clean! Although they also live on the property, they were so respectful of our privacy. We were 100% delighted. Thank you, Terri and Mike, for making our time in Oahu soooooo special and complete.
