Discover Oahu from the heart of one of the best locations on island. The setting is just fantastic in this special piece of property with lush views of the mountains and tropical fruit trees. There are three houses on the property and this listing is in the front shared home. This is a private residence for travelers long and short term. It's on the same property is the popular Aloha Bunkhouse, a hostel-style travelers housing. There's plenty of free street parking and laundry on-site as well.
There is a full kitchen with fridge, microwave, toaster oven, stove and cooking utensils. There is a shared bathroom with full shower tub. The common areas get cleaned regularly with all your clean linens provided. And we never add-on hidden fees like cleaning, second guest, etc. :-) Your host Lauren manages multiple other listings so book confidently knowing you’ll receive a great guest experience.
This listing is for a private room with a queen size comfortable bed and a private half bathroom with sink and toilet.
Guests have access to the common areas in the front house including the kitchen, dining area, living room and shared bathroom. You also have access to the Aloha Bunkhouse next door including the game room and laundry facilities. You're welcome to use the on-site laundry facilities and have soap for $2. You also are welcome to hang out in the private back yard and there's a seating area and BBQ as well.
Interaction with guests
This is your host Lauren’s former house when she first moved to Oahu (now she lives in Kauai). Lauren makes sure things runs smoothly remotely and loves to say hi when she's on Oahu. The owner Jeremy lives on-site in the back bungalow and also rents it out while he’s traveling. Magnum, Jeremy’s friendly Rottweiler, is the official greeter and a favorite among our guests - read the happy reviews. We rent the other rooms on the property so there’s guests coming and going. We both love to meet our guests - hearing about your adventures and offer advice for exploring Oahu. We all do our own thing and with everyone's various schedules, hopefully we’ll cross paths.
Other things to note
We have a DIY check-in/out to accommodate everyone’s varying schedules. The common areas are cleaned daily but it is an older house in country Oahu! We keep it clean though there's frequent visitors around like geckos, ants, bugs and the occasional mouse. It is cleaned, wiped down and swept regularly, but it's not "hotel standards" by any means and we price it accordingly. It's a great place for affordable accommodations.
Ants and cockroaches do come if guests leave food out and the geckos help with the pest control! :) If you need anything, please contact Lauren.
There is a very friendly Rottweiler named Magnum so please be aware for any allergy issues as he sheds a lot in the living room. It does rain nearly everyday so he tracks mud in and the floors can reflect this. We're a pet friendly house and you're welcome to bring dogs only along if they get along with Magnum for an extra $10 a day or monthly rate.

Insight of long term renters
Arrive anytime after 4pm and leave by noon. Be cool and don't expect a hotel lol! Take off your shoes at the door, please don't leave any dishes in the sink, close the gates and never park in front of a neighbor's house. Those are the biggies. Smoking is ok outside and alcohol and 420 are ok as long as not disturbing anyone. Generally it's pretty quiet around our house at night. Please put your used linens in laundry basket upon checkout and help us conserve water by reusing your towel :-) Please your space empty for next guest. You MUST read the House Manual for all arrival info and the link is in the confirmation email. Contact Lauren through AirBnB system if you need anything!
Aloha! I moved to Hawaii sight-unseen from Los Angeles to start 2015 because I wanted to be happy - and it worked! I was inspired by "The 4 Hour Work Week" and am creating a life of liberty.
I sold my first company in Nov. 2014 (bringing animals to kid's birthday parties all over Southern California) and I am enjoying LIVING life and owning my time while plotting new business ventures. I setup my first listings on AirBnB at my home in Honolulu in April 2015.
I didn't stay long in Oahu as I was inspired by the stories of travel and adventures from all of my guests. So I took off to do my own first adventures in solo traveling and I spent 7 weeks exploring Kauai (and fell in love w it and decided to move there!)
I ended up traveling for 5 months straight because of AirBnB in 2015 - it changed my life and I found myself! I explored Kauai, Oahu, CA, AZ, UT, NV and OR while visiting friends, family and seeing amazing sights and tons of National Parks.
I am so grateful for AirBnB as both a host and traveler and love to give back to others. Now I remotely manage many AirBnB listings in partnership with my friends on Oahu and Kauai.
We work together to provide affordable accommodations and share our wonderful islands with you. I live on Kauai with my ohana in the cute little town of Hanapepe.
Now that I manage so many great properties, I have a team for assisting in customer support. We offer an efficient DIY check-in guests love saving you time and money.
I manage a great place in Kapaa town near the beach with shared and private rooms and a private studio. Bend Oregon is a great travel destination and I manage a nice home there.
On Oahu is the original Aloha Bunkhouse in Honolulu with an awesome bunkhouse, residential front house plus a bungalow.
For a great downtown Honolulu experience, we have a suite that's great for large groups.
I love to travel and so grateful for AirBnB and enjoy staying with other hosts. Come visit and book now to enjoy your experience at one of my listings.
