Interaction with guests
We let our guests have privacy. We do not interact with you other than to greet and show you in, give information and directions as needed, and answer questions, or help if there is any kind of problem. Suellen, our live-in caretaker, will be present at the property during your stay.
The neighborhood is quiet and laid back--away from the crowded city, tourists, and busy streets. Even some of Hawaii's beach side towns that used to be quiet and laid back, like Lanikai and Kailua, are now crowded and busy, with lots of traffic and people. Waimanalo is what those towns used to be like 10 years ago--peaceful, quiet, not crowded or busy, yet just a short drive away from these places so you can go there if you want to. Green and lush, lots of chirping birds and coconut palms, this is a taste of true Hawaii.
The public bus route is just a few minutes away if you choose to use the bus.
Other things to note
A very important point, which sets us apart from many vacation rentals, is that cleanliness is extremely important to us. We take great care to try and ensure that the suites are immaculately clean. All the bedding and linens are washed after each guest (not just the sheets, but the quilts and shams as well), and the entire suite is thoroughly cleaned after each guest--not just given a cursory wipe over. Everything in the suites is new, and good quality. We are eco-friendly, using non toxic, natural cleansers and soaps. Of course, this is what you would expect in a good vacation rental. We are certain you will be satisfied and pleased with the cleanliness, decor, and quality of our suites. And if by some chance there is anything that is not up to standard, we ask you to let us know immediately, so we can take care of it right away. With our on-site manager, you will not be on your own if you have any problem or concern.
