Perfect in every way! Travelled to Oahu with my 2 children for the first time and enjoyed every moment at Doug's beautiful home. The views are magnificent at all times of the day and you hear chirping of the birds throughout the day. Close to everything yet tucked away serenely. Doug is a wonderful host and we hope to return soon!

Doug's place is exactly how shown & described. I really enjoyed the Manoa residential neighborhood! Close to hiking, 15 minutes from Waikiki, close to all but feels super private! Quality design & furniture. We used the grill to cook for 5 friends which was really nice! Doug & his partner are awesome!! Super responsive!! I'll be back!

By far the best airbnb stay. Space is gorgeous, hosts are generous and timely with just-right level of interactivity and privacy. Oasis in paradise. Will be back. Mahalo!

Doug's place brought about a sense of comfort, a piece of home, and a calming retreat from the chaotic bustle of downtown Honolulu. Doug and Bill were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating! They were quick to respond and ensured that we had all that we needed when we first checked-in. The beauty of the place spoke for itself -- from the melody of birds that woke us every morning, to the sweeping views of the grand ridge bordering Manoa Valley. The space was clean, bright, and open. It did well to showcase the natural beauty of the valley. For eight days, we were so fortunate to live in this corner of paradise! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. It was our first trip to Hawaii and staying at Doug's place made the trip truly memorable!

It was a wonderful time in Bill's lodging, a garden of Eden. It is a modern, very stylish accommodation with an incredible Garden and view. In live the accommodation is even better than it is on pictures. Doug and Bill were incredibly great and accommodating hosts, ready to help us wherever they could. Many Thanks :)

I enjoy writing, traveling, photography, volleyball, ocean sports, and spending time with my partner and daughter. I love the outdoors and consider my family and friends my most valuable asset.

I was born and raised in Hawaii and am from a big family. Please ask any questions you may have about the islands. Happy to share!
