Excellent Experience

4.8 on January 14, 2017

The room, food, and host family were fantastic! Would stay here over and over again. I even got some play time and kisses from the family dog.


Excellent Choice

3.4 on October 26, 2016

The Inn is very comfortable and well run. I was somewhat disappointed by a few particulars. I was here on business and the breakfast was started at 7:30, too late for me to attend. There was no in-room or community microwave so I couldn't reheat any leftovers. There was printer or office services available. It is a beautiful, historic home on lush grounds run by charming people. I'd definitely come back if given the chance.

The rooms were spacious and very quiet, allowing for good sleep. The breakfasts in the morning were ample and served on the back porch with a beautiful view of the garden. The hosts were very polite and accomodating. The parking was a little tight, but there was always parking. Overall, the stay was very good and I would go there again.


Beautiful and romantic place

4.8 on October 21, 2016

It's a heritage building, Victoria style. Very good location, near Waikiki and University of Hawaii. You can walk to find good Japanese restaurant. Beautiful backyard and very good breakfast outside. Good customer service, air conditioner sometimes doesn't work well.

Good breakfast each morning with the host people being very pleasant. Location was away from Waikiki so it was very convenient to travel to other parts of the island. Parking was tight at times but sufficient.


Satisfactory

3.0 on September 28, 2016

We found the parking difficult, but staff was pleasant and facility was clean.


Peaceful morning

3.6 on July 25, 2016

In the morning, you will be awaken by the singing of birds and you see the Summit of Diamond Head lit by sunrise.(From the Cooke room.) Breakfast was excellent in the lanai surrounded by the garden.. Very convenient location if you rent a car. This is an old house and there are some points to be improved.But,overall I love this B&B and wish to come back again.


Great location & rooms

3.8 on July 22, 2016

Needed a place to stay in town that was near to family and not Waikiki. The location as great, room was comfortable and made us feel at home, breakfasts with made-to-order hotcakes & eggs were great bonus. As a vegetarian, the non-meat (fruits, steamed vegs, rice, etc.) options in the morning (all available without having to ask!) were a great start to the days. Having the family dogs on site too made it feel more like a friendly guest house than a hotel. Will stay here again. (Note to people unfamiliar with Hawaii neighborhoods...) I have seen other reviews pan this place because the expectation was for a new hotel feel. Before you visit, please understand that this is a historic house in one of the wetter (lots of rains) neighborhoods in Honolulu. Go expecting a welcoming old home in Manoa & you'll be good. Go expecting a modern hotel and... well, you should go to a modern hotel in Waikiki instead - there are plenty and to each their own.


Perfect getaway for a laid back rest

5 on July 20, 2016

This is a cozy home feel type place. Only 6 rooms, max 2 per room, and no kids. Beautiful strolling garden area and healthy breakfast options. This is our third stay now and it really is starting to feel like home!


Not a true B&B

2.2 on July 13, 2016

I have stayed in many B&Bs throughout the world and Manoa is not ran as the typical B&B. We stayed almost a full week and never once met the owners or the owners family that also lived on site. Early each morning 2 young girls would show up to not only take care of guests but also serve the owners and her family. The bedding and towels are very old....I will not be returning.
