What a fantastic place! We stayed for our honeymoon and the place was everything we wanted and more. The views and the gardem are amazing and it's only a short bus ride into waikiki. Doug was always very helpful and the milk, cheese and wine etc on arrival was a lovely extra touch. Manoa falls is a short walk from here and is definitely worth a visit. Thank you for a great stay Nat & Pete

Doug and Bill were on hand from the second we arrived and led us up to what we can only describe as paradise. A beautiful condo with amazing views in a lovely quite neighbourhood. There was some wine,beer and nibbles left in the fridge for us. The condo had everything required for our weeks stay. Doug and Bill left us to enjoy our holiday but were onhand if we required anything. When we are back on oahu we will be booking their condo straight away. Thanks Doug and Bill.

We just got back from Doug's place and we had a wonderful trip! If you are looking for a great place to stay in a quiet neighborhood outside of the craziness of Waikiki...this is a great location. If you have a car, you will be able to park and visit the island easily. Doug was the perfect host! He was there to greet us even if we had a late arrival and was accommodating with our late departure as well. The place was spotless and he made sure that we had everything we needed. Thank you very much! It was a pleasure meeting you and your family :)

The best Airbnb stay we've ever had! The location is close enough to Waikiki but yet feels like a true vacation retreat. We had a hard time trying to decide between staying in the middle of Waikiki or going for a local experience and we are so glad we chose Doug's rental. It was such a relaxing place to return to after exploring the island. It was secluded and it was wonderful to be surrounded by nature - Waikiki was too busy and hectic for us. Doug keeps the place clean and well stocked! He was a wonderful host and was able to accommodate us with a late check-in due to a delayed flight. Thanks again!

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!

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!
