We stayed here because our daughter lived near by, but the studio she rents was too small to accommodate everyone for her graduation. We found this bed and breakfast and it was perfect! We had a nice private location for quality time together, yet close to our family member. And it had great parking places for guests as well, located...

Aloha Kathy, We are glad that everything worked out just right for you. You reflect the sentiments of the hundreds of guest who stay here and never write a review. The comments in our guest books do not get published, so no one sees those. I so appreciate you taking the time to represent them and that your stay here...

I booked the B&B because of the location and good reviews. We stayed 4 nights in the Studio in june this year and there some good points about this place: the owner was helpful to meet our requests. the location was great 5 min walk to Lanikai beach - Voted one of the best in the world.

Thank you so much for your feed back. I am sorry that you did not discuss these issues with us while you were here. I did explain prior to your arrival that the only unit that was available was the unit with the king bed and you stated that it was not problem for your daughter to sleep on the...

First stop of a three week trek through the islands, this was the best choice to relax, shake off the nerves of travel, and recharge. Lanikai and Kailua beaches are a short walk and are welcoming, beautiful, and among our favorites on Oahu. Janice was the perfect hostess with local knowledge and accommodation. Everything we needed was at our fingertips.

I am glad our little haven could provide the perfect hideaway you needed after your flight, Rob. We love being so close to the beautiful beaches of Oahu, and I'm happy they're some of your favorites. Providing everything my guests need is my pleasure, and I hope to be able to host you all again soon! Warmest Aloha, Janice, Owner

Hawaii's Hidden Hideaway is run by the most wonderful, welcoming and helpful hotelier I have ever come across, and we've done an awful lot of travelling all over the world! Janice's little piece of paradise is tucked away just a few minute's walk from the beach in the most beautiful and tranquil residential area just outside Kailua in a place...

Wow! Hearing that my place is one of the best places you've ever stayed in is just music to my ears -- especially since you've traveled the world! Thank you so much for all the kind words about my service, and the beautiful descriptions of the house and its surroundings. Sounds like your stay was the perfect romantic getaway, and...

This is my second stay at Hidden Hideaway. The first time I took one of the studios, and this time I took the suite, which I prefer. The suite is one large room with a sleeping area and a sitting area, a separate kitchen and bathroom. The owner is a delightful woman who fills the kitchen with pastries, drinks, coffee...

Aloha, We were happy to have you return and enjoy your time here and with your family. Between your walk to Lanikai Beach and your time in the suite, it sounds like you had quite a relaxing getaway. Let us know when you want to come back and as you know the earlier you reserve your unit the more likely...

Lots of privacy and quiet! If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing location within a 5 minute walk to calm Lanikai Beach, this is a wonderful choice. My husband and I are not particular fans of standard bed and breakfasts, where you must awkwardly interact with the owners every day, (we prefer to keep to ourselves) so the fact...

This was our first accommodation on our round-trip. We really enjoyed the place. It is only a short 5 min walk away from Lanikai Beach, one of our favorite beach parks in the whole state. It is well-located to discover the island and especially the North Shore and Honolulu. The breakfast was not our main focus but to be honest...

Mahalo, Christian! It really means a lot to hear how much you appreciated the beauty and location of my place. Sounds like you all had quite the adventure! I couldn't be happier to hear that you'll be returning next time you're on the island. Next time you are back you're like having family. Warmest Aloha, Janice

I had high expectations of this place that were shattered by multiple factors. The owner had to be tracked down whenever I had a question or a need. Her responses ranged from curt to downright annoyance and meaness. She never offered us anything , such as, fresh towels ( towels sour in the tropics) or a tour of amenitities of...

First of all, I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I hate to hear that your expectations weren't met at my place, but I'm happy to have the opportunity to make things better around here. I apologize if I came off rude or dismissive; that certainly wasn't my intention. I aim to treat all of my guests like...

Our little retreat in Lanikai was a refreshing change from the usual hustle and bustle of Oahu. There are three units in a lovely home in the upscale neighborhood of Lanikai, just a few short blocks from an amazing beach. The B&B is nestled in very lush vegetation. Everything we needed for breakfast and refreshments was provided. Janice was a...

As others stated, I was completely disappointed in the breakfast. The problem is Janice charges a substantial amount of money for a barely edible continental breakfast. We had to go to breakfast every morning, because the food she stocked on Wednesday, was moldy by Thursday. She also came into our room and snooped around, but didn't bother to restock our...

We always welcome our guests to ask us for anything that they need. Telling us after the fact, we cannot meet all of their requests in a timely manner. We also respect everyone’s privacy and are there if you need us. We need to clarify that no one goes into the units when guests are there without them present. We...
