Several rooms available in our large, spacious house next to University of Hawaii! Just 5 minutes walk away from UH, grocery, restaurants, and stores. I have a peaceful dog, and a few birds, some fish as well. Please ask about the student massages available every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday for just $35 ea!

The space


We have several lovely private rooms conveniently located in Manoa Valley within a 2 min. walk to the University of Hawaii, a 10 minute walk to the grocery store, coffee shop, restaurants, pharmacy, a 20 minute walk to the bottom of the amazing manoa falls hike, and a 15 min. drive/bus to Downtown/Waikiki/Ala Moana and the beach. It's close to everything, but just far enough to escape the noise and enjoy the true beauty of Hawaii.

The newly renovated private room has a walk-in closet, Queen bed for 2, and 2 rollaways to accommodate a 3rd and 4th guest. The room is large, as it originally served as the living room before the house was renovated. If you need to set up a comfy queen size airbed, there is space for that, too! However there is an extra charge for more than 3 people. It has a private bathroom, with a shower handle, and access to a full bathroom downstairs which is equipped with an infrared sauna since we often use it for massage and aromatherapy sessions.

You will also have access to free wifi, use of a washer and dryer, and you are welcome to use our fully equipped kitchen and living room. Depending on the season, you can even pick some avocados or passion fruit in our large back yard, with koi pond and organic garden.

We have a small, sweet Maltese named Sunny who will also be around to entertain and cuddle.

We love to have guests, and enjoy meeting new people of all sorts. We're happy to share recommendations on the best places to go and how to get there, or just leave you in peace to relax and soak in the lush valley breeze.

If you are in need of a place to stay in Manoa, for a single person or big group, this house has all you need. Good people, a beautiful garden, and a stone's throw away from the university and good Manoa shops/restaurants.

This location is in a quiet, affluent neighborhood at the north end of UH campus. It is a short walk/drive to Manoa Marketplace which has an excellent bakery for breakfast, and you can also walk through campus from the north end. Our host and her adult son were lovely, we enjoyed talking with them during our stay. We were in the master suite which was cool and roomy and had it's own bathroom. The house would be difficult to navigate with a wheelchair due to the multiple levels, but otherwise would highly recommend this home. The slightly higher elevation in this area ensured a nice breeze every day.

Convenient location in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance from basic necessities. And the little dog is super friendly and cute.

Karen was a wonderful host! Her and her family were very helpful and supportive, it was like staying with family. I would recommend this to anyone that does not want to reside in Waikiki. It's not fancy but all the amenities are there and it is a lot of 'bang for your buck'. If you rent a car and plan to spend most of your day outside and exploring the island, this is the perfect rental for you! Karen also has multiple rental options for her home as the property is quite big (by Hawaii standards).

I teach people how to heal themselves naturally, and drug-free. I also operate a Holistic massage school. Student massages available on Tuesdays and Fridays for only $35/hr. I enjoy gardening, music, and have a passion about brain, consciousness and neuroscience, especially in relation to the Quantum Field. I am working on my PhD now, for Doctor of Natural Medicine. I have a son upstairs, who is studying Electrical Engineering at the University across the street. He is very knowledgeable and eager to help you out!
Our house is very relaxed, and laid back. Not perfect, but not bad. No OCD, please. My motto is: "Enjoy the journey! If it's not FUN, I'm not doing it!"
