Jose has the most beautiful house we have ever seen as an AirBnB. The photos on the website don’t do it justice - the actual house is mind-blowing! The view from his house is incredible, his treehouse is phenomenal, he has a fully equipped gym, a keyboard & drumset - just everything about his house is perfect. Sitting outside with a couple of beers and looking over into Honolulu/Waikiki during the sunset was a breathtaking experience - something that no hotel can provide. Jose and his family (and his cute little dog) are very respectful, and provided us with everything that we needed. The location is great (10 minute car ride to Waikiki), and the neighborhood is beautiful. It was almost a shame that we had so many things planned outside of the home, and we wished we could’ve stayed longer. It was an honor to be able to stay at his home even just for a few days - not many times in your life would someone be willing to share their beautiful home with strangers and be so accommodating. For anyone coming to Oahu, I highly recommend staying at this property; it will most definitely enhance your experience. Thank you Jose for being such a great host - I hope our paths cross again in the future!
This is a spacious house, with beautiful wood floors throughout, that has dramatic views of downtown Honolulu from the dining room, living room and master bedroom that are special at night. Amenities include a well-equipped gym with more weights and machines than a lot of hotel fitness centers (although the treadmill did not work), a very well equipped outdoor grill station, a pool table, a drum set, an electronic piano, a tree house off the patio that was under construction but we were able to use, a well equipped kitchen, 4-1/2 baths, large capacity washer and dryer and a well maintained and lovely yard. Waikiki beach is about 3 miles away (parking is tough) and Diamond Head (there is a view of Diamond Head from the master bedroom), Pearl Harbor and the airport are relatively close. There was no problem using this location to go anywhere on the island, There are no negatives but you should know that the apartment above the garage is rented out and they use a portion of the driveway to park and the Owner stays in a private apartment on the property and uses the garage. Speaking of the Owner, Jose, was great and offered to help in anyway he could including grilling steaks for us (we did not take him up on the offer but probably should have). I would stay here again.
