The Kalama Room is the smaller of the accommodations and it was perfect for us. Very clean and comfortable, it had everything we needed each night after busy days of activities. A/C, fans, TV, microwave, mini-fridge, king size bed and a wonderful shower. Just the place to collapse after a very full day!

We found this place on line and then called Barbara directly to make the reservation. This was the perfect place to stay after our week on Waikiki. We felt a far different and more relaxed atmosphere from the minute we stopped into the Morning Brew for a coffee in town on arrival. We then set out to find our next...

We stayed in the Hiilani unit for 9 nights in June. We arrived at 2am and Barbara had left the unit open for us with some lights on, so we were able to go straight in and get settled. The unit is large and totally comfortable with everything you need. Great lanai area with an outdoor setting and BBQ and...

A friend and I stayed in the larger unit for 10 days in March 2014. It was to be a relaxing vacation as well as visiting my son who was in Oahu in the military. I was uneasy about booking any room online that I was not familiar with and only had the pictures and reviews to rely on. The...

Booked on line. Hiilani Apartment was clean, very well maintained and appointed, quite outstanding, in fact. Auntie Barbara is a great hostess and her property reflects her aloha. Complete kitchen, well equipped, cable TV. Comfortable beds, plush towels, boogie boards and beach chairs and a small lanai. A short walk to one of the world's great beaches. 10 days in...

Auntie Barbara's was the perfect little spot for us! We don't speed a while lot of timer in our room when we travel so this soothed out great. The property is about a 10 minute walk to the beach and the beach access is easy to find. There were Panama Jack chairs (the best beach chairs! ) in the room....

I was nervous staying here because it was so affordable and rentals on Oahu can be a total crapshoot. This place was perfect. We stayed in the smaller room for $85 a night. It was a tiny little room, but had a great big comfy bed, nice desk, and was arranged optimally for the space. Air Conditioner was used (as...

We really enjoyed our stay at Auntie Barbara's cottage. Have stayed at many beachhouses while our kids were growing up and this is one of our favorites! So many conveniences: Nice towels, shampoos, sunscreens, beach towels & chairs & more. Milk, bread, juices and other breakfast items provided when we arrived. So nice we didn't have to find a store...

Auntie Barbara's is a series of rooms and extensions attached to a house in Kailua quite near the beach. The accommodation is fairly spacious, and quite good value for money. There are a few shortcomings; our room had a small window but no curtain - so you didn't sleep much after it got light. One part of the main living...
