The Rainbow Inn has been our vacation escape for 9 years. It has everything you'd want for total relaxation. Beautiful private pool, views of Pearl Harbor, access to local non-touristy shopping and owners who respect your wishes.

Fantastic way to end our holiday in Hawaii, a week here was awesome. A pool right outside a beautifully kept apartment with all you could need. Picture perfect view of Pearl Harbour. For us the ability to drive to any part of the island from this location was ideal. Look forward to our next trip back one day!

Great hosts, great room, great view of Pearl, great pool, great location and the fridge was well stocked. The Corona saved a life! Oh, and the cost was reasonable. And the neighborhood is safe and quiet. Whew... 200 characters.

So glad we booked here. We stayed in Waikiki for one night before arriving at the Rainbow Inn, immediately upon entering we knew we made the right decision. It was so peaceful out there and very convenient to the beaches of Oahu. Pearl Harbor memorial is only a couple miles away. We loved the view and the fact that we... More

Members of my family have stayed here two different times. The view is perfect - the Arizona WWII Pearl Harbor memorial is completely visible from the site. It is a pleasant, clean and nice accommodation at reasonable cost. We appreciated the ease in traveling to the airport and museums from this condo. The owner is very helpful and accommodating. We...

Our family of 3 began our Hawaiian vacation at the Rainbow Inn to see the Pearl Harbor and Oahu sights away from the crowds. Wow, we could not get enough of the views- just gorgeous! Saw rainbows 2 out of the 3 days we were there. Super clean, comfy beds, great pool and views, quiet, super friendly hosts and great... More

The Rainbow Inn was a wonderful centralized accommodation for our stay in Oahu. If you do not mind driving to get to the nearest beach (about 30 minutes away) this is definitely the place to consider. (Traffic can get heavy, but that is typical all over the island.) Terri and Mike were the perfect hosts, and their studio apartment is... More

My wife and I just returned from a week in Oahu, staying at the Rainbow Inn. This is an apartment in the lower level of Mike and Terri's home, about 20 minutes (without traffic) from downtown Honolulu. It is very convenient to the airport, and, of course the whole island is not a difficult drive away. The apartment has a... More

We booked the Rainbow Inn a few months in advance based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Firstly, the photos here and on the VRBO website don't do the place justice. It is a complete, LARGE, one-bedroom apartment. You have a large sleeping area, a sitting area with what I think was a futon that could sleep another... More

We stayed at the Inn for three nights and highly recommend you do the same. The view is phenomenal over the whole Pearl Harbour area. You can see the Memorial and the Missouri from you room and you do not have to fight with Honolulu traffic. The apartment is brilliant with everything you need to hand, spacious and very quiet...
