Our detached studio cottage is nestled in the hills of Maunalani Heights in Kaimuki, HI about fifteen minutes by car from Diamond Head, beautiful beaches, hiking paths, Kahala Mall, Whole Foods and the best restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops on the island.
The cottage has a kitchenette with a refrig, toaster oven, a comfy Queen size bed, AC ( few places provide AC in Hawaii), washer and dryer, a nice lanai where you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee and a one car covered parking.
This is a cozy detached cottage with the Hawaiian style corrugated metal roof surrounded by mango, lychee and banana trees and sometimes even pineapple plants! There is a comfy Queen size bed, full bath and kitchenette with refrigerator, toaster oven, and microwave. You have a shared washer and dryer (with only one other person) and A/C for those occasional hot tropical days. There are dishes, cups, glasses, silverware and knives as well as a coffee maker for your use. Have your morning coffee on your own private lanai and wake up to the cool Hawaiian breezes and the tropical birds chirping. Escape from your busy lifestyle and unplug.
There is a one car covered parking stall, shared washer and dryer with just one person, and AC for the occasion warm nite. Very few listings in Hawaii have AC and washer and dryers. This is truly a economical home away from home with many more amenities than a hotel provides and much cheaper!! Parking for your rental cars at Waikiki hotels is usually an additional $40 a nite.
Interaction with guests
I am available to help make your stay as stress free and relaxing as possible. Being that I was born and raised in Hawaii I can help with local sites, hiking paths, restaurants and other activities. I will also respect your desire for privacy, peace and quiet. I am here to help make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible; but I will not intrude on your privacy.
Other things to note
We have one covered parking and one open stall for bigger vehicles. There
are no parking fees to worry about unlike when you stay at hotels where it is common to be charged $40 or more per day. We also have a washer and dryer shared with just one other person and AC for the occasional hot tropical evenings. We provide beach chairs, beach toys and beach towels.
You will feel removed from the hustle and bustle because of the lush surroundings and cool tropical breezes, birds chirping and peaceful atmosphere; but are only minutes from everything.
We do not allow pets, non registered quests, no parties, non smokers only (no smoking inside or outside of cottage) and no illegal substances allowed. Violation of smoking rule will result in forfeiture of security deposit.
Unfortunately we can not accommodate children under the age of 18. Only registered guests allowed. Guests need to be respectful of others and adhere to quiet hours from 10 pm to 8 am.
When going to the beach make sure to use the hose outside the front door to hose off sand before entering the cottage. The sand has a way of multiplying when it comes into the cottage.
We have boogie boards, snorkels, masks and fins and beach chairs and beach towels for your use. We just ask that you rinse off boogies boards and snorkel equipment after each use.
