Why David Loui chose Kuliouou - Kalani Iki
We are conveniently located on the south shore of Oahu to the southeast of Diamond Head. Aina Haina shopping center is 1/2 mile away. There's a Starbucks, a yoga center, a grocery store, post office, a bank, and a shave-ice shop. There are several hiking trails nearby with stunning views of the island. Waikiki is about 15 minutes away, depending on traffic. Hanauma Bay is a 10-minute or 3 mile drive to the east. Further up the coast is Waimanalo Beach, which was voted Best Beach in 2015. Driving to most places on the island takes about an hour. Bus stops with routes going in both directions are within walking distance...

Great spot away from traffic and easy access to everything!
We did not want to stay in town, but wanted easy access to the drives and sight seeing on our agenda. This was the perfect spot! Easy access in and out of town (just minutes away from H1), no parking issues and close to local restaurants and grocery store. Cottage was neat, clean and airy. David was a great host! He and JJ (his friendly pup) made us feel right at home. We had everything we needed and had a great trip. I would highly recommend this spot if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of downtown and just want to enjoy the sights around the island.
Loved staying in Aina Haina with David!
Aina Haina is out of the hustle of Waikiki, but close enough to get to things easily. The cottage is relatively new and very comfortable. David was a warm and welcoming host and made sure all our needs were met. The cottage is private and the neighborhood is quiet with ample parking. We would stay here again on our future trips.
Private and Perfect Location
What a perfect place to have the feeling of home away from home. Clean, private and peaceful. We loved waking each morning to all the singing birds and coffee on the private lanai. David and Cindy were the best type of hosts, so warm and welcoming and available if you needed something but also kept your stay with them as private as you wanted. The unit amenities suited our needs. No A/C but not needed as the winds provided a lovely breeze during our entire stay. The area is completely local and off the beaten track of tourism if you've been to Oahu and know where you want to go. We rented a car and went all over the island, hiking different locations, searching the tide pools and hanging with the locals made this a very relaxing vacation. We would definitely return to this location again. Thank you David and Cindy for a great feeling of ohana!
I’m so happy we got to meet. I will always remember you guys. I hope that you both have a wonderful spring and exciting new year. Big hugs!
Love this place!
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and I promise we couldn’t have chosen a better place ! We loved JJ just like everyone else . And the cottage itself was very spacious and comfortable. David was so welcoming and helpful as soon as we arrived he was happy to see ya . We had a wonderful stay thanks to David .
Thanks for coming jess. Hope to see you guys soon!
Bright, airy, quiet
So lovely! The studio is spacious, super clean, and soooo quiet. The bed is also really comfortable, and it's got views of the lush hills/mountains close by. It's in a residential neighborhood, so expect a short drive to places (Kawaikui was the nearest beach we found and we drove, but it's walkable, Foodland is close). Super accessible to Hanauma Bay, Waikiki, Diamond Head. We fell asleep to geckos and woke up to birds. Honolulu, esp around Waikiki, can feel a bit overwhelming and so we were thankful for this quiet neighborhood to hang with the locals.
- JJ the dog (as mentioned multiple times in previous reviews). She's friendly in a well-behaved and quiet way. As in, you'll hear a whimpering and whining (not barking) as you approach the property and it'll be JJ, who wants to be petted and given a belly rub. If she happens to be there during your stay, it's quite a bonus.
- Two sets of snorkel gear that you can borrow whenever
- Really really easy free street parking.
- Induction hot plate for kitchen = super fast heating.
- Basic cooking oil, salt/pepper provided, and enough bowls/plates for dining in.
- Bring your own soap/shampoo. Hopefully in the future it will be provided?
- 3 beach towels, so make sure you're diligent about hang drying them after use if you, like us, plan to make beach-going a daily thing.
The perfect rental
Super friendly area, host, and house. It's a little guest house on David's lot but still spacious enough for 3 people to fit comfortably. David was so accommodating and kind from day 1, greeting us as we arrived and providing some insider tips about the area and places to go. There isn't AC in the unit but theres plenty of windows and doors to open for the Hawaiian breeze to flow through. One of the highlights was coming home to his adorable dog, JJ, who would treat us all with an enthusiasm as if we were family.
Our cottage is located in Aina Haina, a short distance from beaches, shopping, golf courses, restaurants, yoga centers, movie theaters farmer's markets and much more!
