Comfortable space, modern feel, quiet in heart of Honolulu
Nice space, beautifully sparse with a modern feel. Unique layout, but it worked for us since we were traveling with our son. It would be more awkward for those who didn't want to have to walk through a bedroom to get to the kitchen. Ceiling fans and box fans were helpful to cool things down. The lanai was very relaxing. I must have missed in the listing on VRBO that extra taxes would be collected on site since I wasn't aware until Jose emailed about that. Also, check-in procedure wasn't clear to me until I asked twice. I am diligent about email communication and am virtually positive it wasn't mentioned even though Jose said he had already told us. Very helpful suggestions from Jose for restaurants, activities. Great location since it's close to the bustle of Waikiki but a quiet neighborhood. The view of Diamond Head was peaceful.
Nice house, but parking was difficult
A very nice house. Clean and roomy. As noted, it does not have air conditioning. If wind is blowing right, house is comfortable. But when wind is not blowing or from wrong angle, house gets quite warm. Also parking was very difficult. The driveway is shared between three different places. And the entrance out is downhill around a blind corner, making backing out very difficult. If you have a backup camera, maybe doable, but my rental car did not have a camera. Several times full size trucks were in the driver way making the parking even worse. I ended up parking on the street and working about three car being broken into.
I am sorry you feel that way about the driveway. We have been doing this for a long time and never had anyone complaining about our driveway. As for the trucks in the driveway, we had yardman working on the yard during your stay and that happens once a month. After all, it is a "home" and not a hotel and we have had about 75 5 star reviews and find it surprising about your concerns but thanks for the feedback and for staying with us. I wish you had expressed your concerns directly to me (owner) while you were here because I communicated with you often and not once you expressed any issues about your stay. Appreciate the feedback though. Mahalo
Very Enjoyable Stay
Everything went well with my stay. Located in a very quiet and safe neighborhood in Honolulu. Clean, comfortable and overall very peaceful. The owner Jose was friendly and accomodating.
Thanks Michael. It was nice meeting you and your family. Keep in touch
Fabulous place to stay!
We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this accommodation to all of our family and friends. Jose is very hospitable and a pleasure to correspond with.
The residence was clean, quiet, nicely decorated and well equipped with everything we needed. We liked being centrally located, attractions such as the zoo, Waikiki and Pearl Harbour were just a short drive away, which was great as we were traveling with a toddler.
We loved sitting on the lanai in the evening and watching the glow of the city lights and the fireworks. On a morning we enjoyed the view of the ocean beyond the city while drinking our coffee. It was a lovely start to the day.
We’ll be back Jose!! Many thanks for a fabulous holiday!
Thank you Sarah for choosing our property for your stay while in Hawaii. Mahalo for the kind words.
Beautiful views of the Waikiki skyline, breathtaking sunsets and serene surroundings. Paradise!
What can I say about the property that hasn't already been said? This Slice of Heaven makes you feel like a local. Amazing views, perfect location, well-appointed grounds, and extremely welcoming host make this property a prime place to stay. José welcomed my mother and I with open arms and plenty of Aloha. We arrived slightly early and were graciously allowed to settle in. We found the home quite clean and very comfortable. The luxurious and meticulous landscaping was full of wonderful native Hawaiian flowers and tropical fruit trees. Slightly off the beaten path and away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki Beach hotels. Just a few minutes drive to the beach, Manoa Falls, Diamond Head and the airport. Peaceful retreat with a Lanai where you can watch the sunset, Friday night fireworks, or coffee just before your sunrise surf trip. If I ever vacation in Honolulu again, this will be at the top of my list of places to stay and it should be at the top of yours too. Mahalo!
Thanks for the kind words. We truly enjoyed meeting and hosting you and hope to see you again soon. Mahalo and safe travels

Close to everything and located in a very nice area. Didn't have to fight the traffic going in and out of Honolulu. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it didn't have air conditioning. The fans worked well in moving the air but there were a few days we didn't have any trade winds. Cable TV in the master bedroom would've been nice. Other than that, everything was good. It was nice to have a lanai to hang out and a full kitchen. Thanks Jose for being so hospitable.
This property is located in the hill side facing Diamond Head volcano crater, Waikiki/Ala Moana beach and city lights. There are 4 supermarkets, 2 hospitals, movie theaters, shopping centers and outdoor activities within 0.3 miles from the property. There are 8 hiking trails for those who enjoy hiking and exploring. A city Golf course (Ala Wai Golf) within 2.1 miles and a variety of activities within 5 minutes driving. Our property is completely safe, quiet and relaxing and perfect for a busy day at the beach with the certainty and tranquility of coming home and watching the beautiful Honolulu sunset, ocean views and fireworks from our lanai while you hear the birds chirping and feel the breezy and enjoy a cold drink with friends and family.
