Located between the Pali and Like Like (not a typo) just off famous Judd Street you will find the perfect place to stay while you are visiting Oahu. Relax away from the crowds and noise of Waikiki yet you can be there by car in minutes or by one bus ride for only $2.50 without paying the crazy overnight Waikiki parking rates. "The Bus" can take you anywhere around the island including the North Shore for $2.50. Find all kinds of surprises at "Eheulani," centrally located to everywhere.
I’ve traveled all over the world and I’ve stayed in lots of AirBNB’s. I know what makes a great trip. First of all, you would not be reading this if you wanted to stay in Waikiki with the crowds, noise, late night sirens, horns & expensive overnight parking. Waikiki is a fun place to visit but the beaches are over-crowded, the ocean smells like coconut sunscreen, the traffic is a nightmare. From an insider's viewpoint, visit Waikiki, just don’t stay there. Be smart, stay where the locals are. “Eheulani,” is the most centrally located place on the Island of Oahu. This is a "Home Sharing" property. I live here and we each have our own bedrooms. We share the rest of the house. There are many advantages to home sharing. The nightly rate is fantastic. Most basic hotels in Waikiki cost about $300 per night and there could be many hidden costs. You are living in a local neighborhood. The location is away from the noise and traffic of Waikiki. It is a central spot so you are much closer to the places you will be visiting. You have a built-in expert to advise you to plan your days. You will avoid the mistakes most visitors make and you will save a bunch of money and time by going places and doing things the right time and the right order. You have access to all my stuff. You will not need to rent or buy beach stuff, snorkels, boogie boards, a stand-up paddle board SUP surf board, etc. You have a full kitchen so if you want to eat what you want to eat and when you want, you have everything you have at home. By car, UBER, or by TheBus (we call it the big yellow taxi) it will take you anywhere on the island for only $2.50 each way. If you stay here, you are not far from most of the best beaches, hikes, attractions and places of interest. By car you can easily get to the Pali Hwy, Like Like Hwy (not a typo) and H1 freeway. The easy off - easy on ramps are minutes away. Free tandem parking and street parking will save you a bundle of money.
There are lots of ethnic and local style restaurants and eateries just down the street. Super good hole in the wall Thai, Korean BBQ, Chinese, local “Plate Lunch” at L&L Drive in, the neighborhood McDonald's, plus lots more. And don’t forget Liliha Bakery and Diner is walking distance near the CVS store. If you feel like cooking, the kitchen is huge with most everything you need to cook up a feast. There are two supermarkets near by that sell local food as well as anything you might need.
I always appreciate a mini refrigerator in my room when I travel iso of course, you will find one in the nice sized bedroom. Because we are tucked away at the end of the road, the super quiet nights will allow you to sleep like a baby. The memory foam queen size bed is very comfortable. I set up the bedroom like I would want it when I travel. There is a lock on the bedroom door.
In case by chance you go into labor on this trip, you have several hospitals near by to choose from.
The high-speed wireless internet is available throughout the house. There are gadgets in the cyber center including a TENS machine with feet massage, relaxation massage helmets and space for your own hardware to use or charge up. The flat screen TV in the bedroom has lots of cable channels.
So you don’t need to run out and buy beach items, snorkels, beach towels, beach bag with cooler and beach umbrella tent are all available for your enjoyment.
You will find lots of closet space to tuck away your luggage and hangers to hang your clothes. There is a selection of unusual games you can play if you feel like staying in one evening. A remote control fan allows you to stay in bed should you need to turn it on or adjust the speed.
A folding stationary bike is tucked away with a Lomi Loni Hawaiian massage stick for your use. Some free weights are waiting for you outside if you really feel ambitious.
A cozy dining table and chairs are situated so you can eat in the bedroom if you choose or sit on the bar stools in the kitchen or at the hardwood slab dining table.
The bathroom is shared with the host. You will enjoy SPA towels. There is a custom shower head and a hand held.
The living room is shared with a 50-inch flat screen TV.
The side yard has a gas grill if you feel like BBQ for lunch or cook by Tiki torch lights at night.
If I missed something, let me know.
Enjoy the use of the house. The kitchen, bathroom and living room are shared by the easy going host.

I grew up on this island so I am available to give all sorts of advice. I have some connections if you decide to go parasailing, jet skiing or ever try to fly with a Jet Pack. I can advise you how to get great deals with attractions and what to stay clear of. If you need recommendations to go hiking, just ask plus I will tell you where the best beaches are and where you can have a beach all to yourself.
I am a product developer and I've worked on many products. I love what I do and I am passionate. I always have something interesting in some stage of development.
My dad, Jerry shared this account with me and he was a Host some years ago. He was loved by many of his guests. He passed away over a year ago but he always had fond memories of the guests that called Jerry's place a home away from home. He is surely missed.
Not many rules: Absolutely no smoking on the property. No loud noises at night. No extra guests without permission. No parties. Treat my place and my things like they were your own. Remember someone else will probably want to use them just after you. In order to keep the nightly rate low for everyone, a strict cancellation policy is in effect. In the case of this property, cancellation refers to all or part of a reservation. For more information, please see Airbnb cancellation examples.

I am a fun easy going guy, raised in Hawaii but lived in California and Europe. I enjoy creative business projects and I have traveled a lot. I have an amazing 24 year old son who is attending law school.
I am an inventor, product developer and a marketing expert. I have created many products that have made it on the shelves of stores. I also help companies develop and launch their products. My dad, Jerry recently passed away peacefully and with a smile on his face. He enjoyed hosting AirBNB guests and he made lots of friends. He was an indescribable father and for those of you who got to know him and stay with him, his stories were among the most interesting you have ever heard. I'll miss you dad.
