Realy nice places, clean, private

  • 5 of 5

If you need a place to stay during your trip in Oahu, if you look for a quiet place with free parking, close to waikiki ... This is the place you need. I strongly recommend it. Quiet, clean, private.

Great location and perfect bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place especially if you are looking to stay out of the hustle & bustle of Honolulu. You are close enough to downtown if that’s your thing, but even closer to Hanauma Bay and less touristy beaches. Kathy was a great hostess and gave us all kinds of great ideas on what to do. The full kitchen and free use of some beach necessities were bonuses. Thanks for sharing your great home with us!!

Hawaiian Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Auntie Kathy is amazing, Mark and her have established the perfect location for guest looking to get a dose of what it's like to live on Oahu. They are there if you need anything, and are totally cool with just letting you come and go respectfully and allow you the privacy you're looking for. The space provides you with the ability to peacefully relax, cook on your own with all the kitchen provisions, or just relax outside. Included with your stay they offer you beach towels, cooler, and chairs to chill on the beach. If you're looking to do more there is also a body board, kayak, and snorkeling gear.

But as far as location, this would be your best choice when planning your stay in Hawaii. You will really feel as though it's a home away from home. If you need groceries, a nice meal, a date night, entertainment, or just looking for a place to chill, Hawaii Kai is right there. But really you're at the beginning of a part of the island that offers you a more true side of paradise. I've been to Oahu several times in the past, the first few trips I spent with local friends and family, and the next in a hotel down at Waikiki which ended up not being that true reflection of the island life. This location just allows you the most immediate access to some of the most scenic and adventurous sides of Oahu. You can't go wrong.

Book it! Don't hesitate...

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy and Mark were great hosts. They respected our privacy, but they were alwys ready to give tips and share their knowledge of the island with us. Very warm-hearted and sincere.

The studio was spacious and had everything you need away from home, even beach gear was provided. We enjoy cooking at home, so the big stove came in handy. All necessary cooking utensils were in the kitchen.

The mattress was firm, the bed big enough for two. We slept with the windows open and were greeted by birds in the morning, almost like being in the country.

The location is great, not far from Honolulu/Waikiki in the west, and close to Hanauma Bay and the beaches on the east coast. Foodland and Safeway are close by to get groceries.

This rental can be unconditionally recommended. Mahalo Kathy and Mark.

Home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this studio for 5 nights for my son who played in a youth baseball tournament. Everything about this place was perfect for us. The unit was clean and comfortable. The bed and daybed were both comfortable and we had five good nights of sleep. Our hosts, Kathy and her husband, were very accomodating with the few requests that we had and really made us feel at home. The kitchen was well stocked and being able to save some money by cooking at "home" is always a positive thing. Although the studio is attached to the main home, privacy was never an issue as we had our own separate entrance and came and went as we pleased. Being on the outskirts of busy Waikiki, yet having lots of options for dining and shopping nearby, was a huge plus. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend this unit to anyone who needs a comfortable home away from home.


Mahalo again for being such great hosts.
