Kalihi Valley is a lively, family-oriented neighborhood that exemplifies the aloha spirit of Hawaii. Kalihi Valley was carved out of the Kalihi Stream and was settled and developed by the ancient Hawaiian people. it is one of the oldest "suburbs" in modern-day Honolulu. The temperatures up here are considerably cooler than in downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, even though we are so near geographically. We experience the cool and refreshing tradewinds on a regular basis. We are a 5-minute car ride from the Kamehameha Shopping Center and the world-famous Bishop Museum. There are many delicious, ethnic and affordable restaurants nearby AND a great "easy" jungle hike close by.
Public transit on Oahu is one of the best bus systems in the country. "The Bus" will efficiently get you anywhere on this beautiful island.
Other things to note
Our place is not a 5-star resort or smack in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. However, our location is a perfect spot to base your visit to Oahu, whether you want to experience the excitement of Honolulu or the natural beauty of the North Shore. There is a great deal of interesting history, entertainment, great farmer's markets and farm-to-table experiences to be had on Oahu. We can steer you towards those experiences if you so choose. Or you can spend all your time at the beach. Either way, our place is a great and affordable alternative to a hotel.
We believe in the Golden Rule. We live here, too. Since we are locals, we're happy to give you the "lay of the land" and suggestions on what to see and do during your visit if you so desire. We totally respect your privacy. We expect you to keep the space tidy. We've put a lot of effort into pleasantly decorating it and we aren't charging a cleaning fee for when you leave so we don't feel it's too much to ask. Smoking is ok-but outside only.

I am a retired grandmother enjoying the good life with my extended family in Hawaii. We enjoy going to the beach and swimming in the warm ocean water. There's nothing like it anywhere else in the US! I also enjoy listening to music, gardening, TV dramas, taking long walks and trying new restaurants and meeting new people. We've hosted guests before at our previous home and I know we'll do our best to make your stay at our place a great one.
