About this listing

Our Mauka Studio is one of two studio suite rooms we have listed for our guests to enjoy. Mauka, meaning "mountain view" in Hawaiian, doesn't disappoint with sweeping sunset views of Pearl Harbor. (UPDATE APRIL 2017: NEWLY RENOVATED. We've been listening to our guests on how to make the place better. We've renovated our rooms to hardwood flooring, added some soundproofing to the walls, and added a window for better ventilation to make your stay more enjoyable.)

The space

Our Makua studio room comes with your own private entrance from your own lanai (patio) where you can enjoy the wonderful view of Pearl Harbor. We live separately upstairs on the second floor. From the street, there is a flight of stairs to get to the rooms. There are two completely separate studios next to each other, each with its own private entrance and private bathroom. This studio is the one on the left when facing the house. The studio is 10 x 18ft and comes with a refrigerator, microwave, electric kettle, tea, dishes, an iron, a hair dryer, closet, a full size mattress, earplugs, soap, and clean fresh linen and towels. We also have a combo lock for the keys so late check-in is not a problem. There's also very fast wifi to enjoy your Netflix after a full day around the island. We also have some boogie boards, beach chairs, beach mats, snorkel and other goodies to enjoy the beach!

Guest access

Guests have access to their own private studio with private entrance and bathroom. The lanai (patio) is shared between the two adjacent studios.

Interaction with guests

We rent out both studio rooms downstairs so you get to enjoy fellow travelers touring Hawaii. We are also home most days and available for questions and needs.

The neighbourhood

A real Hawaiian local community vibe. No touristy overcrowded throngs of people and we like it that way. :)

Getting around

The bus stops conveniently across the street right in front of the house. There is public street parking available around the neighborhood. Two spots right in front of the house are available for guests, but are not guaranteed since it's still public street parking.

Waikiki is about 20 min by car, 1 hour by bus.
Downtown Honolulu is 15 min by car, 30 min by bus.
Lanikai Beach and Kailua Beach is 30 min by car.
North Shore is about 40 min by car.
Pearl Harbor Memorial is 10 min by car, 30 min by bus.
Honolulu Airport is 5 min by car or taxi.

Other things to note

We've had some complaints with noise so unfortunately we do not allow guests with babies or pets.

Michale and Cristina's studio was phenomenal! Great value, great view, great room! Loved it! 10 outta 10

Michael and Cristina have made a very comfortable studio with every thoughtful extra needed for a relaxing stay. The ear plugs are a nice touch as the neighbors have a couple of excitable dogs that bark and there are several roosters in the area that crow at all hours. If you are not used to them, they can keep you up, but the earplugs solve that straight away. The location grants easy access to pretty much anywhere on the island, and a car is certainly helpful, although there are several bus stops close by, with one right across the street. The view is gorgeous from your studio, especially at night. You will enjoy your stay!

The studio was perfect for my needs and the view from the porch is truly amazing. It was clean and although there's no AC, the fans kept everything cool. Neighborhood location and only about 15min drive to downtown Honolulu, Lyft costing about $15-20. Also super close to the airport, about a 7min drive. The hosts are very kind and super helpful.

This airbnb was so cute and cozy! For being a studio, it had everything you needed! Towels, plates, cups, fridge and microwave! You can tell a lot of effort was put into this airbnb! The only downside I didn't like was parking. Driving to find parking and walking for 5-10 mins in the middle of the night back to the Airbnb was a hassle. Other than that, this place was perfect :)

We had a great stay, the studio was just as described. It was very clean and had great decor. We had a rental so parking wasn't too hard to find plus it's conveniently located, only 15min from Waikiki and 5min from Pearl Harbor and Airport. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking to explore the island.

This is a great place to stay! The neighborhood is nice& quiet. Not too far from the airport. We were hardly in the room but it's perfect for 2 people. The only thing is there is no AC but, with the fans and the breeze from outside it's fine! I recommend this place to anyone look for a little getaway. We didn't get to meet the host but, they were very quick to respond when we had any questions.
