About Cindy Brookbank

We purchased the penthouse in 2006 and quickly went to work gutting and refurbishing it from top to bottom. We carefully made it to our tastes, as our home away from home and hope you will feel the same way. We come stay here ourselves a few times a year and continue to perform upgrades as needed as well as cleaning and maintenance, above and beyond that which the hotel provides.

We have just had to raise our rate a little for the first time in the ten years we have been sharing it with others. We hope you will understand and appreciate that this unit is still a great value. Just read our reviews and you will see! We are still able to provide an appreciative discount to our return renters at this time.

Wow, just amazing

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic find this apartmnet was, knowing Waikiki & surroundings, I couldn't believe this was going to be as good as it was, it was even better than advertised. The apartment kitchen had more in it than my kitchen at home, the view of the night lights from the sofa was fantastic, we never closed the curtains. Faultless. Thank you Cindy once again for your hospitality. Will be back next year.

Fantastic penthouse and location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you CIndy for making this penthouse available for us. From the extremely helpful front desk to the time you walk in the door it is as per all previous reviews . Fantastic inclusions and everything you need in an apartment . The added bonus is the owners lounge with its fantastic views and a great way to meet travellers from all over the world.We have found our permanent Waikiki home away from home.

Can't go wrong here!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again Cindy for providing us with a wonder stay and a seamless booking process.

If this unit ever comes up for sale we wanna be 1st in line......absolutely love this place!

We really enjoy the benefits of the owners lounge especially on a friday night when the fireworks show is on....what a view!! Since our last visit we like the renovations the hotel has done and couldn't fault the staff....very friendly and helpful......I think it's called the Aloha spirit!

We'll be in touch when we get the chance to return to paradise!!

Totally Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely stay here again when we visit our son at HPU. The sunset from the bar next door was incredible and we have spent more time in the pool than ever before thanks to the private entrance (what a treat!). Last year we stayed near diamond head and it was overrun with kids celebrating graduation...this has been a much better and relaxing experience for the almost the same price. The staff service has been awesome and there are so many great restaurants within 2-3 block walk. We especially LOVED Giovanni Pastrami down the street!!! Thank you so much for sharing your special Oahu retreat!
