Beautiful Soulful Place!
I used to live in Honolulu in my 20s, so I wanted to introduce my husband to a nice non-touristy experience of my old city! I looked and looked online, and Barb's place kept popping back up! What a magical mystical retreat she has put together! Buddhas, fountains, carvings, a mystical tropical Asian, Balinese lightness... Gardens, secret steps and gates up the hillside... Secluded lookouts where you can see Diamond Head and the whole city skyline below! Wow! More than the photograph of that little room even hints at!!! The room was comfy, and I loved it that you can just open the doors and windows and you are half outside at night! Barb was so accommodating, and fun to talk to. She turned us on to a great coffee place up Manoa Valley called "The Morning Glass" which became our 'go-to" place every morning. The pastries and view of Tantalus are out of this world! And she also recommended Liliha Bakery... Plate Lunch Heaven!!! What a beautiful start to our trip with such aloha, beauty and hospitality .
Local living! Tucked to Tantalus mountain, excellent views, 5min to town center.
