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.

Hillside Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were on Oahu to help an elderly relative in Aiea during surgery and aftercare so this was more of a "business" trip. Having rented homes in Hawaii several times before for family vacations, though, I have to say this was one of my favorite rentals. It was wonderful to turn up the hill, leave the traffic and noise behind, and retreat to our peaceful little paradise. From the moment you first walk onto the property and Mike and Terri great you, you feel like you've come home. You walk down a little hill to your own private entrance, patio, pool and oh, that fantastic view! We looked forward to waking up each morning and taking it all in from the breakfast table in front of the window. It doesn't get terribly hot at Rainbow Inn but several fans and a small AC unit are enough to cool it down after a hot day of running around, as is a dip in the refreshing pool. And EVERYTHING is provided for you; plenty of shampoos, lotions, towels, paper products, a very comfortable bed, and even light breakfast choices which lasted us for a week. Mike and Terri are as welcoming as they can be and yet are not intrusive at all. Terri even offered to go to the Navy Exchange to pick up some hand towels that I fell in love with. I was able to find them on my own, but what a kind offer that was! If you enjoy the crowds, traffic, and hustle and bustle of touristy Waikiki, this might not be the place for you. But if you're a couple wanting to be above it all and yet in a convenient, quiet location, this is the place. Hope we can come back and enjoy it again!!

Wonderful place with a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The homeowners were very accommodating. The "apartment" that we stayed in was spacious, clean, and very welcoming. We felt very comfortable and like it was a home away from home. The location was out of the hustle and bustle with easy access to all of the attractions that we wanted to see. Highly recommend this place!

Stunning views. Warm welcome. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

The view is better than the pictures, we could have sat by the pool and watched it all day. Quiet and peaceful, birdsong to wake you and evening city lights... amazing. Clean, neat studio style with the pool courtyard. Glad we found it.
