Interaction with GuestsI'm out of town more often these days, but we have several instructional placards to assist you in enjoying the home. We also have many books, pamphlets and printouts to help you pick out nearby favorite sites, beaches, attractions, restaurants, etc or simply read about Hawai'i and it's history. The NeighborhoodNu'uanu is located just mountain-side of Downtown Honolulu's waterfront. Less than 1 mile from Hawai'i Pacific University, Queen's Hospital, Kuakini Hospital, and less than 3 miles from University of Hawai'i (direct bus to campus is a couple blocks walk). Nearly every cuisine is covered in it's many eateries, from fine-dining to local favorites. Getting AroundBus stops are within a couple blocks walk. Waikiki is best visited by bus (where parking is very limited and expensive). Mopeds are rented in Waikiki and can be a very enjoyable way to explore this side of the island as well as circle-island touring. Renting a car for just those days when you want to explore the other sides of the island is the best way to manage a week+ vacation or long stay.

Most guests have been thoroughly enjoying walking, especially to downtown, the waterfront, and even along the beach front to as far as Waikiki. We have always walked, especially when enjoying an evening out, yet we are still pleasantly surprised at how much guests are discovering so many places to see, visit and enjoy through walking on their days off. There are convenience, drug and grocery stores between 2 blocks and .5 mile away. Eateries and restaurants located from 2 blocks to two miles about every block and offer a wide price and cuisine range.
Don't forget to bring your long trek shoes/sandals that have been well-rehearsed in taking you far. The neighborhood, weather, and nearby areas that are more easily explored on foot, will compel you to walk; shoes not broken in might have you regretting you did. Other Things to NoteHere's a short list of what's nearby (most a short walk): Liliha Bakery (mmm cocoa puffs), Iolani Palace (est 1882), Aloha Sushi (dragon roll rules), Banghok Chef (yummy Thai), Kaniakapupu Ruins (and waterfall), Ward Center (lots of shops and eats), Shinsho Tei (karaoke and local pupu's), Navatek (dinner cruise)
