-- NEED A RIDE FROM THE AIRPORT? --
If you need a ride from the airport, please let me know! We offer airport pick up and drop off - I only ask for a minimal fee of $15 to pay for gas one way. Uber/Lyft/Taxis cost about $35-75 (without tip!) one way, so you'll be saving at least 50% of your money if you ride with me :)

Very hospitable . I was picked up at the airport on time and driven to Waikiki with my luggage. 10-15 minute walk to town and 30 minute to Waikiki Beach.

Abi and Bing were wonderful Hosts. Though I knew my way around Honolulu, Bing ensured I had a wonderful stay, and she provided a wealth of information for my renovation, which I greatly appreciated. I would definitely stayed with them again.

Abi was VERY informative and her mother Bing was so genuine! Made us feel right at home! Recommendations out of the roof! Location is great; right down the street from an incredible waterfall (Manoa falls). Easy access to the west side and downtown. The house and the people just bring so much comfort for your Honolulu stay!

Abi was not there due to family situation on the mainland, but her mother Bing was an excellent host! Friendly and welcoming, one of the first things she said was "please make yourself at home" and she meant it. Great room, and even though she was working a garage sale and getting ready to move, everything was great!

Long story short, warmest welcome I could've ever imagined coming to Hawaii, they have everything you could need, like you moved into a real house. She treats you like family. What else more could you want?

Our $15 host Airport pick up was cancelled the day before our arrival due to another guest checking out. On arrival our host's Mother was holding a garage sale,an hour later she said she was taking another guest to the Airport and would show us around,so an hour later we were BACK at the Airport! (She did give us a bit of a look around which was nice. The bed was incredibly saggy,even the BASE was sagging!The free upgrade we were offered never materialised and was given to another guest instead. The room was incredibly hot even with 2 fans going all night. On the second night there was so much noise going on upstairs where they were packing(furniture being dragged across the floor)that at 12.10 I went up and asked very nicely that they stopped. The house was in a state of flux as they were moving out,and I do not think they should have been taking guests during that time. Bing (the Mother waswas sweetbut we didn't get what we expected and our room looked like it had just had some spare furniture put in it. We never saw Abi as she had moved to California.

Aloha!

I'm a Southern California girl at heart, attending college in Hawaii and living with a few roommates in Honolulu :) I've traveled to 20 different countries so far, and I seem to always be planning my next trip! I LOVE adventuring and am fascinated with learning about new cultures and languages.

I recently have been accepted into medical school (woohoo!) - my career interests are in medicine, mental health, and business. I also enjoy law and philosophy.

When I'm not doing school work or volunteering in the community, I'm most likely hiking, at the beach, or spending time with family and friends :)

Looking forward to hosting you during your well earned Hawaiian vacation!
Aloha & Mahalo,
-Abi
