Newly renovated Waikiki Studio with parking option, Ocean views Paradise balcony

This gem of a studio is located in the heart of hearts of Waikiki. Everything is within walking distance - restaurants, beaches, shopping centers, cafes, the zoo, the aquarium, hotels, bars, clubs, gyms & much more! The space is newly renovated and has a very upscale beach vibe with tasteful design accents, brand new furniture and appliances. There are two balconies as this is a corner unit - which means you have more than 180 degree spectacular view of Waikiki, from the mountains to the sea!

My place is great for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Up to 5 guests comfortably!

Guests have sole access of the studio. There is plenty of parking on the street, guests also have the option of an assigned stall in the building for an extra $15/day. Public transportation is plentiful in this area and is available right outside of the building.

A beautiful pool area, exclusively for guests, is always a plus! There are beach towels and chairs for you to use in the studio as well.

All of the appliances are energy saving and brand new. The flat-screen TV is connected to cable so you have hundreds of channels to choose from! The washer/dryer is located in the hallway of each floor and costs about $1 per wash/$1 per dry.

There is an abundance of restaurants in the area ranging from a wide variety of cuisines to explore open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can take a stroll through the beach walk to the ocean where there are surf lessons, canoe and catamaran rides available. There are farmers markets in King's Village every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday - where local farmers and chefs set up tables with tasty goodies. If you enjoy the nightlife, Sky Bar and Rum Fire are a two-minute walking distance away! Waikiki is also known as a shopping paradise with endless options of shops to choose of our guests enjoy this space so much, they don't ever leave Waikiki :)

The International Market Place is a new shopping mall, only one block away from our apartment. There are beautiful stores & great restaurants there too. There is also the Ala Wai Golf Course across the canal and beautiful parks and hiking scattered near by.

If you are planning on staying in the area there are numerous shuttles to and from the airport available. A car is recommended for those who want to explore other parts of the island conveniently, however, there are many bus stops, trolleys, cabs, & uber available as well.

The sunsets in Waikiki are absolutely amazing! Each one completely different from the last. In the unit, there is a wonderful A/C system and other electronics that make this studio all the more comfortable! Please help us to conserve energy by turning off all electronics and the A/C upon leaving the unit. A refundable security deposit of $150 is required at the time of booking.

About Orly Maor

I have lived in Hawaii for 17 years now. We moved to Hawaii from New York to provide a better outdoor life for our kids & we are super happy here! The weather is so comfortable, the ocean & mountains are so beautiful & we can enjoy the city life, combined with the country life!

Orly Maor purchased this Studio in 2017

Why Orly Maor chose Waikiki

It's in the heart of Waikiki, the location is prime! Waikiki is full of action yet is also very relaxing, with breath taking beaches, lots of activities, the amazing beauty of nature, shopping, and a great variety of restaurants! The people who live here are very friendly & there's a nice mix of people from all over the world! My son is a professional surfer & he spends a lot of his time teaching beginners how to surf right here in Waikiki! My daughter & younger son love to swim, boogie board & lounge by the ocean! Waikiki is very accommodating to all of my family's needs and is an excellent spot for a vacation!

The owner is very responsive to all requests and very easy to communicate with. The building staff is also friendly and helpful. It can be noisy, especially on the weekends, but I would describe it as mostly white noise from traffic.

It was very noisy at night, which can't be helped given the apartment is pretty high in the highrise. Also the place is super cute. They was a little trouble in getting the check in materials, but the host was super accommodating.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Thank you for staying with us, sorry about the winds, it doesn’t happen very often that it is that windy. I’m happy you enjoyed your stay.

                                                                        Great Studio

                                                                        Angeline M.Benicia, CA

                                                                        I stayed in this comfy studio apartment nine nights and was very happy. It's large for a studio, has full kitchen and great updated bathroom/shower. The very best part is the location just two blocks from Kalakaua Ave (the main drag), and on the corner of Kuhio. Can walk to everything, shopping, high end hotels, and the beach. The only drawback is the noise from the street, but it's worth overlooking this considering all the other positives. There is also a partial ocean view from the lanai.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        This property is as advertised in the pictures and description. It is right in the heart of the downtown Waikiki, and close to any amenities you could need. About a 5 min walk to the beach. The owner was very easy to communicate with and helped to make my first time visiting Hawaii a smooth one. I'm looking forward to my next stay!! The building is very quiet, although downtown Waikiki is very loud itself, so be prepared for street noise to simmer down closer to 3AM. People I met staying in hotels in Waikiki found the same issue with street noise, so staying at big hotel won't make a difference.

                                                                        You won't regret staying here!!

( 2 balconies) Close to everything , the beach is closer than it looks in the pics, 5 minute walk max. Great restaurants close by. Has everything you'd need for an extended holiday. Condo totally redone, fridge & stove. We were extremely comfortable here, definitely felt like home. Secure building. Highly recommend this property.
