Hi, I'm Tarah!

My house is really a dream location for any visitor! It's close to the beach (only a 10 minute walk), Waikiki, Diamond Head, Kapiolani Park, Honolulu Zoo, The Aquarium, many restaurants, nightlife, and the bus stop.

You can walk everywhere and enjoy one of Oahu's best neighborhoods, with many things to do and see. I also create a very cozy, welcoming environment and my place is full of light. It's important to me that you feel very welcome during your stay:)

The space

Your room has a big closet with plenty of space to hang clothes and store your suitcase. The view out your window is of Diamond Head:)

The bed is a Queen and very comfortable.

I keep the house very clean. You're welcome to use the washer and line to dry (eco-friendly). Clothes dry pretty quickly on the line and they smell really nice!

I provide extra sheets and towels during your stay.

There is free parking on the street and almost always a spot in front of the house. If not, no more than one block away.

Guest access

You're welcome to use the full kitchen anytime. There is a stove, oven, toaster oven, and microwave, as well as cookware available. I provide hot tea and coffee as well that's available any time. There is plenty of space in the pantry and fridge.

You're also welcome to use the living room space for relaxing or working.

Interaction with guests

I have my own healing/coaching practice, so I work from home a few days a week. I'll be available to answer questions or help you with things to do on the island. I've been here for almost 8 years so I know my way around:)

Other things to note

I occasionally dog sit for two very tiny pups. If you are allergic, please let me know when you book and I will make sure to not have them at that time.

There is no A/C as is common in Hawaii. There is a fan in the room, and the house is usually breezy from the trade winds. There are a few summer months where it's warm during the day.

As of October 2017, there is construction going on a few houses away. It's not been loud on a daily basis and sometimes they don't even work, but there is the possibility that they begin construction at 7 or 8 am. If you like to sleep in, this may not be the best time for you to stay with me.

I have a feeling Tarah's trying to win Airbnb - she's doing an excellent job going about it! Her apartment is super neat and tidy and she's flawlessly hospitable and communicative. Book w confidence! Ps: Aussies for a decent cafe check out Ars Cafe around the corner ;-)

Tarah's place was perfect! Clean, quiet, safe, close too all. It's about a 10 minute walk to Waikiki or if feeling lazy an easy Lyft or Uber ride too. Definitely recommend.

The place is conveniently located next to a major bus stop so it's easy to get around the island by bus. It's also located east enough to make Ubering affordable to the really scenic beaches on that side of island. The cross street, Monserrat, has a lot of restaurants, cafes, etc. as well as access to gas stations so you can get anything you need. The home itself is very clean and organized. I didn't meet Tara but she has every kind of toiletry available in case you forget something. The house does not have air conditioning so it can get warm during the day but it's not an issue if you're out and about. At night, the winds and fans are enough to keep you cool. My only recommendation is to have darker and more sturdy curtains. They tend to get tossed around in the wind so it's difficult to maintain privacy and still keep the home cool. Other than that, it's a great place for solo or couples.

Response from Tarah:
Thank you for staying Manuel, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! I'm sorry the curtains were bothersome for you, I'll look into getting some different ones. It definitely can get breezy!

Tarah's place was amazing. Close enough to Waikiki beach to walk but located in a neighbourhood where it was quiet. I rented a bicycle during my stay and it only took me 5 minutes to ride to the beach, the grocery store and less time to eat at local and fast food joints. It's also extremely close to diamond head hike so I rode there as well in under 10 minutes. Although the place doesn't have A/C it's really not needed as the sea breeze is cool enough to put you to a sweet slumber every night. The place came with a great, kitchen, bathroom and amenities and very clean and cosy at the same time! Would come back to stay in a heartbeat!

The apartment is nice, but there're some bugs and the distance to the beach is a bit far,

Response from Tarah:
Thanks for staying Summer! In Hawaii, there will always be some bugs as it's a tropical environment, even though it's really clean. I'm sorry that was a bummer for you!

I had a lovely stay at Tarah's house. She's a great host, very friendly, helpful, but never intrusive (like hosts sometimes are to get 5 stars). It's spotless, located next to the Diamond Head and not to far from the beach. I would totally recommend this place. If I go back to Honolulu, I would book it again.
