If you plan to do a trip to Oahu's south shore in style while on a budget, this is the place for you. Two minute walk from the famous Waikiki beach, this clean and comfortable studio apartment is in a secured older condotel building, centrally located near dining, shopping, conveniences and activity. It's location makes it ideal if you plan to traverse Waikiki on foot as many of the popular attractions are within walking distance. This simple home base includes basic amenities and then some. As a local Hawaii family, and fellow budget travelers, we have put thought into preparing and furnishing your Waikiki happy place.
Imagine a day of exploring Waikiki, or working on your tan, and coming home to a clean, air conditioned apartment where you can relax for a bit before more memory making. Have a cold drink while taking in a city view from the mini fridge on your private lanai, or enjoy a shower or soak in the newly tiled bathroom. The space is outfitted with a hot plate, microwave, coffee maker, kitchenware, and basic seasonings should you want to prepare a meal in, or heat up something from one of the many great places to eat nearby (we've included some recommendations in your welcome binder). Towels, folding chairs, an insulated bag, sunscreen and after sun are available for trips to the beach, or for other outdoor island adventures.
There are coin-operated washers and dryers on the ground floor, which makes it easy to pack light. Paid on-premise parking is space available (no reserved spaces) by the day and though on the pricier side ($25/24hrs) a competitive option since parking is at a premium in Waikiki. We recommend public transportation or taxi service depending on your needs, but most of the area can be accessed on foot. Trolleys and shuttle services that traverse the area and visit areas outside the south shore are also available for a fee, and are worth looking into, as you can set your own itinerary to include more of beautiful Oahu. There are many tour companies in the lobby of the building that offer information and packages so you can make the most of your trip. SIM cards and phones are also available for purchase downstairs for international visitors and those worried about roaming fees while staying connected.
How exciting that you are planning a vist to Hawaii! We look forward to welcoming you! Enjoy planning your trip!
