Fodor's Review

Many travelers and residents would love to own a home like this art-filled B&B at the base of Waikiki's famous Diamond Head crater, one of the city's most exclusive neighborhoods; however, there are only three rooms available, so you may have to work a bit to stay here. All guest rooms feature koa-wood furnishings, a private bath, and a lanai that continues onto a big backyard filled with the sounds of birds, rustling trees, and the fragrance of mock orange, Tahitian gardenia, and puakenikeni (a Hawaiian flower sometimes used in lei). This two-story residence, located at the end of a private road, was once home to a family of seven and is one of the few true B&Bs on Oahu. The more private ground-floor suite has a separate living room and a bedroom with a queen bed. To experience a bit of Hawaiian history, request the room that includes the extra-large, hand-carved koa bed that once belonged to a Hawaiian princess. The closest beach is the intimate Kaimana Beach near the Waikiki Natatorium War Memorial—a beach frequented by locals more than by tourists. While the place is showing it's age, the location, the local charm, and the quiet refuge so close to Waikiki's hustle and bustle make it worth a try. Reserve three to four months in advance.
