Peaceful Getaway
A great b/b right outside Honolulu! This property has gorgeous antiques, spacious rooms, and an unforgettable pool. Breakfast is delicious and the innkeepers are more than willing to help by giving their own personal recommendations for sights and restaurants, etc. A great and quiet neighborhood. If you like to visit historic b/b's, then this is the place for you!

An oasis in the bustle of Honolulu and Waikiki
We stayed at the Manoa Valley Inn in April 2013. The property is located around a 40 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but that was ideal for us as we were looking for something other than a tourist trap. Manoa Valley Inn is near the main university campus which is well served by local bus routes, taxis are good too (although none of our drivers knew the Inn by name which shows what a good secret it is!). Our room was spacious and clean with nice antique pieces of furniture and a Victorian style bathroom. Breakfast was served on the lanai each day and was delicious featuring fruit, cereal, breads and other goodies. You're also offered eggs, omelettes etc. The gardens are beautiful overlooking Waikiki in the distance and Diamond Head. It also includes a small secluded pool perfect for a dip after a hot day exploring the island. They're not keen on you using the air con but our room was dual aspect and with a fan going and the windows open we got a good breeze going. We would definitely stay here again.

Authentique et agréable. Bien situé
Nice and peaceful place to stay just near the center of Honolulu and the main H1 Hwy. You need to know that this is an old Victorian house so if you are looking for modern and new bathroom then choose a hotel in Waikiki, but if you prefer something more authentic far from the discos and the noise of the town by night this is the place to go. The people of this B&B are very nice and helpful. Breakfast is very good with natural fresh fruits. We liked it very much and if we go back to Honolulu we will certainly choose it again.

A Great Find!
We stayed 4 nights at the Manoa Valley Inn in the Baldwin Room on the second floor (Cooke & Moore have views of the Waikiki skyline) in late April and absolutely loved it. It is a quaint, quiet and secluded inn that is a great escape from the Honolulu/Waikiki crowds. For the price and location, you cannot find a better deal on Oahu. My husband was concerned that there was no a/c but even though we had a window unit, we did not need it. We slept with the windows open and had a great night's sleep each night. The breakfast included hot and cold breakfast foods and drinks. The owners/staff are all friendly and totally respected our privacy but yet made us feel so welcome. We moved to a hotel on Waikiki Beach our last 2 nights and immediately longed for the peace and serenity of Manoa Valley Inn.

Excellent B&B, with beautiful gardens and fabulous caretakers!
We really enjoyed our stay at Manoa Valley Inn. The house is a great old colonial style building, with many period details. The garden in the back is beautiful - with a nice view of Honolulu. The caretakers are very friendly and attentive. The breakfast spread is varied, healthy, and delicious! A great place to stay if you want to get away from the Waikiki madness. Thank you!

A Gem of a place!
Manoa Valley Inn is a great place to stay! My husband and I enjoyed our first visit to Hawaii at the B&B and will definitely return in the future. Close to Waikiki without all the hustle and bustle. Love the salt water pool as well. The yard is beautiful might I add. It was really a great first time experience!

“Very restful stay, friendly helpful staff”
We had a very pleasant stay. We stayed in the Davies room with with the feature of a couple of permanently open screened windows. Very comfortable sleeping at night. Great distance view of downtown Honolulu. Breakfasts were very tasty. The staff went out of there way to help with a comfortable stay.
The Davies room had a nice view and was comfortably cool at night (March) with a couple of permanently open screened windows. A trip up two floors but worth it.

"Lovely place"
My wife and I as well as children (sometimes) have vacationed in Honolulu about thirty times over twenty years. We have sampled many hotels and another B&B. For a long time, we wanted to stay in Manoa Valley for its lush growth and lay back lifestyle as compared to Waikiki and other places. We were very happy to find MVI. We stayed in the Master suit. The historical mansion was well kept with excellent attention to detail. Within its confines it was easy to travel back in time and reminisce about the old Hawaii, its people, its joys and hardships. Especially, when reading a book by Jack London or Mark Twain. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The plants and flowers are so lush and expressive they almost talk to you. We didn't get to use all the place had to offer- like the swimming pool or the outdoor bed by the pool draped from mosquitos by a net canopy. I took about thirty pictures of the place, its flowers and trees, the artwork inside and outside, the view toward the Honolulu skyscrapers. The breakfasts were superb. Lots of fruit, breads and breakfast fries. We frequently skipped lunch after having a good helping of breakfast. The staff was always courteous and helpful. A very nice neighborhood. An easy drive to major or minor shopping centers as well as Waikiki, Kuhio, San Souci and Ala Moana beaches. Paradise Park is near, up the mountain. Next time, we hope to stay for a couple of weeks. Honolulu has so much and MVI is a great place to unwind.!

“Hawaiian Hospitality at its Best!”
We stayed two nights in the Davies room with an excellent view of downtown Honolulu and refreshing breezes. Our hostess, Monica cooked and served the best breakfast of our trip (better than any restaurant or other B&B in Hawaii or the Mainland!) with fresh local fruit, savory vegetables, organic teas/hot chocolate, eggs cooked to order, bacon, breads and more--something for everyone. Her attention to details and friendly Hawaiian hospitality--including her adorable dogs--made our visit to Honolulu extra special.

“Great atmosphere and great accommodation”
Spent four days at Manoa Valley Inn was definitely brilliant. Room was large, clean and really comfortable, especially accompanying with great view to the see. The staffs and manager were extremely smart and friendly, they would arranged the great trip of city, surf activities. Otherwise, some fantastic restaurants at the surrounds were great.
