We stayed here a number of years ago now, and I have always regretted not having written a review for them as we loved our stay so much. As if by magic, I stumbled across a reference to the rainbow inn today and here I am, finally getting to write my review. Since the owners are still the same, and... More

We stayed at the Rainbow Inn for three nights at the start of our Hawaii Trip. What can I say - this place and the owners are fantastic. We had everything we needed for breakfast, coffee/tea. The apartment is plenty spacious enough for 2 people, with an outdoor area where you can make yourselves at home. Pool straight outside the... More

We stayed for five nights at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. The location is perfect for accessing the main roads for touring the island. The views at the B&B during the day were fabulous but the evening view with all the city lights was awsome. The kitchen was stocked beyond our imagination. Our hosts were very pleasant and made our... More

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...

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
