Thought it might be nice to stay in a B&B for the first few nights on Oahu, before traveling to some of the other islands, so that we could get acquainted with folks that live and experience Hawaii everyday. This idea worked well for us and we had a wonderful visit here!

If you plan to rent a car for your visit to Oahu, the Aloha B&B will be good fit. The drive from Honolulu airport is about 30 min to the east. The friendly host and hostess, Don and Phyllis Young, have three guest rooms in their beautiful hillside home with great views of the marina, Koko Head, Koko Crater, and Maunaula Bay. We decided to stay at the Aloha B&B in order to avoid the crowded, impersonal and expensive lodging at Waikiki. We also wanted to see the Honolulu sights as well as other areas of Oahu. Other guests during our stay were from Poland and Japan and were delightful to meet over a good, healthy breakfast of coffee, island fruits, yogurt, wholegrain cereals and breads. Also for dinner we enjoyed restaurants at the marina shopping center just down the hill. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at the Aloha B&B and the helpfulness that the Youngs offered for our Oahu visit.

Was delighted to find this B&B in Honolulu. I agree with all the nice things previous reviewers have said! Don and Phyllis are exceptionally warm, welcoming and helpful hosts. My room was clean and comfy with a fabulous view. Every morning there were nice breakfast fixings laid out, fresh fruit and granola and fresh baked goods and fresh coffee. The Honolulu weather being so amazing I always took my breakfast sitting out on the deck for more of that extraordinary view across the bay. They have a great collection of Hawaii guide books and were excellent information resources themselves. Was a great base for touring Honolulu, and a terrific deal. Would stay there again

Aloha Bed and Breakfast was the perfect place for our family to stay. This B&B is located in Hawaii Kai, a quiet community on the outskirts of Honolulu--away from the noise and traffic of the city but still having nice shopping, restaurants, beaches, hiking, etc. Don and Phyllis' home is comfortable and pleasantly arranged for relaxation--inside and outside. They have beautiful views out of all windows and from the deck and the pool. Their home and grounds are kept very clean, and great care is taken to make sure every area is a spot of beauty. Our breakfasts included whole grain breads, cereals, local fruits, yogurt, orange juice, great coffee, and other varied healthy choices. I took home some great recipes:) Don and Phyllis were very accommodating to meet our needs and make our stay a memorable one. We would happily choose to stay with them again on future visits to Hawaii!

I slept in the queen bedroom and was very pleased with the firmness of the bed and the size and quality of the room, which is down two short stair flights so I got a lot of exercise daily. Breakfast was a delightful array of fruits, yogurt and a homemade muffin, juice and coffee. We had pleasant conversations and my coming and going at early hours was never a problem. I ate breakfast on the lanai under the early morning stars and sometimes kept off-site dinner leftovers in the refrigerator for the following day. The Young's residence is nicely situated. I never felt I was a bother to them as they went about their daily routines. I was free to come and go as I pleased, which I did. This is not the place for you if you want to be catered to.
