We had a wonderful stay !! Ivan is the perfect owner , He is present when you need but He respect your privacy !!! The location is quiet and calm but with an unforgetable panorama , very very romantic. The suite has everithink you need , and may be more then !!!! To rent a car is mandatory !!! Don't forget to visit Kailua and Northshore. In Waikiki our preferite restaurant was The Cheesecake Factory ....and the breakfast in the patio .........so beatiful !!!! The photos reflect the location, and I recommend this property. Thanks Ivan for all , for us is a long fly (26 Hours) but we'll come back !!!!! Ciao!!!!

Returning visitor to Hawaii, 1st stay at the East Wing. Look no further, this is it. The best room, view, and owner. Relaxing, great location, even greater view, days and especially at night. A true $10 million dollar view and experience. Everything you'd want and more. We've travel extensively throughout the world, and this rates very, very high on our list.

Owner response: Many thanks.
We stayed in the East during the week of 10/11/08 through 10/18/08 and it was great. Mr. Chen, or Ivan as he is referred to, was great. He was very accommodating, providing all necessities needed, except for food. He even provided snorkling equipment and an umbrella for us to enjoy a day at the beach. The view is spectacular and the house was amazing. We will definitely go back and visit Ivan.

We just returned from a delightful stay in the East Wing. Mr. Chen (Ivan), couldn't have been more hospitable, with a very nice welcome when we arrived late in the evening. The apartment has everything we needed for a few days of relaxation away from the craziness of Waikiki. But, if you need to be in the middle of it all, it is only a short (15 minute) drive. It was cool to be able to see our "home" from nearly every area of Honolulu as we looked toward Tantalus. Usually when we visit Hawaii, our favorite island is Kauai for the quiet relaxation, now we have a quiet choice on Oahu. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Awesome accommodations (plush carpeting, granite countertops, jacuzzi tub), welcoming hospitality (you'll definitely feel da Aloha Spirit here), insanely gorgeous view (Diamond Head to past Punchbowl)!!! This is the best rental we've stayed at in Hawai'i and we can't wait to return! :)

Staying at eastwing was a right choice for us. We were on our honeymoon and this is an ideal place to stay, away from the bussy tourist streets area. Tony and Mr. Chen was very helpful with whatever we need with a friendly greating. We diffinitly will come to stay again and maybe book the whole place when we come with family.

Magnificent view and great place for vacation!!! It was much more than we expected. The marvelous view, very neat and well furnished house, beautiful bath set, ........were really impressive. Also many thanks for the warm hospitality of Mr. & Mrs. CHEN who had made our trip the most pleasurable. We would say it was the most enjoyable trip we have ever had. Our kids and friends who traveled with us all agreed. We cannot wait to plan for our next trip to Honolulu and stay in the beautiful house again.

This was our first vcation and our first time to Hawaii. It could of not been more perfect. Mr. Shang was so very hospitable. They had an aromatic bath powder that was heavenly and made your skin very soft. The East wing was beautiful with its decor and especially the view. The drive was the best. It went through the Tantulus. It was a picture every minute. Mr.Shang made opur stay there very relaxing and enjoyable. With provided beach gear; cooler, boogie boards snorkel gear and even sun tan lotion due to the flight restrictions. He had everything you needed to get your vacsation started off right. We are already thinking of when to go back !!!!!

The stay was great, the location amazing, and Mr. Shang was very nice! He let us borrow snorkel gear and boogie boards which would have been $$$ to rent. Oahu is a great place to stay in Hawaii, it has so much to do that you'll never get bored. We were staying for our Honeymoon and it was very private and romantic. The East wing had an amazing view, we must have took about 500 pictures from there. Tony was very nice and escorted us to the location because we had to take the back road since they were doing construction on the normal road, and although it was a long drive it was beautiful! The next time we're in Oahu we will definitely stay at the Best of Honolulu!

An absolutely gorgeous location with a breath-taking view of the coastline and Honolulu. The apartment was beautifully decorated with every modern convenience. We were treated like 'family' and had a very restful, relaxing vacation. Can't wait to return to this paradise 'getaway.'
