My family and I have lived on the property for over 30 years. Paoa is a retired fire captain, my husband's a manager of the Hawaii island newspapers and I manage a non-profit community center a mile from the house. Our family also includes our two young adult children, our dogs Taimane and Roxy, and Teddy our tortoise. Over the weekend you can find us bodysurfing, picking shells, fishing, and playing with our dogs at the beach. We're friendly and easy to get along with so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you want recommendations or if there's something that we can address during your stay. We're grateful for the opportunity to host you during your vacation on Oahu.
Why Owner chose Ahuimanu
My grand parents built the ohana cottage when I was born to accommodate their growing family. Now that everyone has grown up and moved out we share the house with visiting family and friends like you who want to experience Hawaii like a locals instead of a tourist. Since Honolulu is one of the most expensive places to visit we offer budget and family friendly accommodation for malahini and kama'aina alike.
What makes this Cottage unique
We live below the majestic Koolau mountain range. When it rains heavy here the water falls spill out and line the the entire mountain range from Kahalu'u to Likelike. The windward side is also blessed with beautiful greenery, sandy beaches, scenic drives and a much slower island pace.

Great value! Private area all to yourself!
Comfortable, homey, clean and best bang for the buck on the windward side..so many amenities....beach gear, towels, kitchen facilities and TV. The owners are so welcoming and responsive. The air conditioner was not working in one of the rooms and they immediately replaced it with a new one. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Val!
Clean. Perfect. Peaceful.
The house was perfect. It had EVERYTHING we needed and the owner was quick to respond to all our questions. We would stay again!
Comfortable and well located house
We had a wonderful time staying at this house. I have rented many holiday homes before and found this one to be very well equipped. There was plenty of nice cookware and utensils in the kitchen, along with a microwave, toaster oven and electric oven. There was no shortage of towels for 3 adults. The beds are very comfortable and the shower head in the bathroom had great pressure. Each of the two bedrooms had a tv, as well as one in the living room. Teddy the Tortoise is a beautiful creature and we loved Roxy the dog. She came to greet us every day and ran in excited circles when we went to pet her. The house is centrally located on the east coast so it was a short ride (1/2 hr) up to the Banzai Pipeline and North Coast. It is less than a 1/2 hr to the gorgeous Kailua Beach Park, a sandy bottom beach with facilities and a tremendous view. Valzey and her husband were gracious hosts. The photos in their posting are accurate and show what you can expect. Highly recommended!
Valzey was very nice and made us feel at home with lots of aloha!
would stay here again.
Comfortable and cozy!
We were pleased we had made reservations for this home. Relaxing and well located for all the sites and places we wanted to visit. Felt like home!
A nicely updated older home behind the main house. Very comfortable. Nothing fancy, but very homey. I'd stay there again.
