I posted long time ago that we aren't fans of staying at hotels when we travel. On top of preferring to cook our own healthy meals, we also don't like the foot traffic and the confined living spaces hence we try to find alternative living arrangements as much as possible. We used to look at Craigslist (which we did when we did our honeymoon in Kauai) but then Airbnb came along and it is such an amazing blessing for us.

Of course there were apprehensions at first but we rented about 7 times now and all of them turned out excellent and this last one was not an exception, in fact it's probably one of the best. I already blogged about the spectacular clubhouse/pool facility in the previous post but this one focuses on the house itself to give you an idea why we choose to do what we do. 🙂

Here are some of the photos:

The front exterior

The front door and the side of the house

What greeted us upon entering

The lovely dining room

The comfortable, very adequate and cozy kitchen

Alternate view of the living room

Personal touches

The house have spectacular natural light

The hallway to 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms

What you won't see are photos of the 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms as my family members were napping at the time these photos were taken. There's also a household help quarter (with its own bathroom) by the kitchen and a little lanai at the back of the house.

So tell me, with accommodations like this (plus the awesome pool and facilities), will you prefer to stay at a hotel? 🙂

Happy Thursday (Wednesday)!

Much love,

    I couldn’t agree more! The owner should give you a huge discount for free advertising 🙂
