Private, Quiet and Perfect
Hi All, My son (13) and I were looking for a clean and quiet place to crash for a week of surfing Diamond Head. Tony and Isabel's place was a great fit. Imagine a studio appt. attached to a two-level house with a separate entrance to come and go as you please. There's a small kitchen to prepare meals behind a super cute tiki bar, a large closet for clothes and private changing, a separate bathroom with tub/shower, and washer/dryer. A large fan and air conditioner keeps you cool. The house is high on the mountain so the drive down is gorgeous and it's conveniently located less than 10 minutes from Costco/Safeway/shopping. You will need a car but you won't find traffic or noise here high on the mountain. While you could hang out here all day, you probably won't because you're in HI on vaca right...but it's a great place to call home when you're ready to tuck in. The vibe is laid back, a more real Hawaii, if you will. Tony and Isabel are super hosts. Isabel greeted us upon arrival, explained a couple of rules, and then gave us the key. After that, we really didn't see/hear them. That said, if you need ANYTHING, it's just one text away. I needed a big bowl for a fruit salad, for example. I texted and boom it appeared on the door step later that day. Thanks again Tony an Isabel for a great stay. Mahalo!!!Ron S.

A wonderful studio and wonderful hosts!
My husband and I stayed at this studio for about a week and found it had everything we needed. The location is excellent, with great views, a peaceful neighbourhood and a wide range of shops and restaurants nearby. The studio is well appointed (including a full bath, washer/dryer and a walk-in closet) and the bed is extremely comfortable. The tiki bar kitchenette is a very nice touch. Isabel and Tony were wonderful hosts, and easy to contact. We highly recommend this studio to other couples visiting Oahu - we found it an ideal base for exploring the island, and a very pleasant place to return to at the end of each day. We will certainly be looking to stay here on our next trip to Hawaii.Alexander d.

We definitely reccomend this place and we would for sure go stay there again. Thank you Tony and Isabel! 😊Felicitas E.

Gorgeous, great location
My wife and I stayed here 3 days. Finding the place was easy. The drive up the hill to the place is stunning. You are just a short drive from koko head park and hanauma bay. The interior is decorated very well with a tiki theme. There is a mini range and fridge. The place even has a washer/dryer in the unit. The apt is not big, but it's so cute that you don't begrudge a thing. The bed is extremely comfortable, and the decor screams Hawaii. The owners are gems. They found out we were getting married, and they brought down a bottle of champagne for us. The place came stocked with snacks, fruit, and spritzers. They also brought us a hair dryer when we needed one. They are just tops. Not a worry to be had here!Joshua W.
