As a convenient option, please see below “Getting Around" about secured car sharing site: Turo where I offer a discount and shorter rental periods to my guests. Interaction with GuestsI'm out of town 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 U, Queen's Hospital, Kuakini Hospital, and the financial district, and less than 4 miles from University of Hawai'i, Waikiki and the convention center (direct buses are a couple blocks walk). Nearly every cuisine is covered in it's many eateries, from fine-dining to local favorites. Safeway supermarket, two large drug stores, and 7-11 are all from 2 blocks to 1/2 mile away. Chinatown and other farmer's markets and the waterfront are 1 - 1 1/2 miles away and a direct bus ride down to. The ocean is 1 mile south; swimming beaches 2.5 miles. 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.
As an convenient option, please see the secured car sharing site: Turo (secured website) and look for René’s toyota (2009 Camry SE). I offer my guests discount of $22/d as well as the ability to rent for just a day or two.
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 most of their vacation days.
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 NoteWe do not have A/C and we tropical residents are acclimated to not needing anything more than the ceiling and desk fans at times in the warmer months and lots of natural tradewinds in other months. It also helps us keep our rates low for our guests. Please consider other listings that do offer A/C if you are in the least bit uncomfortable in warm or humid weather.
