I arrived in the evening and was greeted by no one. In fact, I saw not one person the two days I was there. I had to haul my suitcases up the driveway, through a stepping-stone gravel path then up 2 small flights of stairs. I am 66 years old. When I opened the door, the room reeked of mold.... More

First stop of a three week trek through the islands, this was the best choice to relax, shake off the nerves of travel, and recharge. Lanikai and Kailua beaches are a short walk and are welcoming, beautiful, and among our favorites on Oahu. Janice was the perfect hostess with local knowledge and accommodation. Everything we needed was at our fingertips.
