What a lovely apartment! It had everything we needed to make our visit a memorable one. We especially enjoyed the lanai, looking out over honolulu and diamond head. The neighborhood was great, and it was easy to travel around the island from Manoa. Thank you Mary and Dave!

The Ultimate Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The interior was bright and windows were large. It had a grand view of Diamond Head, Manoa Valley, University of Hawaii and Honolulu. We enjoyed listening to all the different birds in the morning, looking out the window at Diamond Head and watching the sun rise all from the most comfortable kingsize bed. The evenings were just as nice with all the city lights. We also enjoyed sitting out on the lanai (deck) and swimming in the refreshing swimming pool. The owners, David and Mary were so nice and even left a card and present for my wife who was celebrating her birthday during our stay there. We would love to come back and stay there again.

Urban sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough good things! This is a perfect apartment for a single guest or a couple. It’s centrally located, convenient to most everything. Even though Honolulu can be bustling, once you get here, it feels removed from the fray and surprisingly peaceful. The view is breathtaking. The apartment is well appointed: a very comfortable bed, a well stocked kitchen, nicely decorated and super clean.

The host, Mary, lives on the premises, and came to check on us soon after we arrived. She made sure we felt welcome and gave us suggestions for restaurants.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great location, generous hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (in our late 50s) couldn't have been happier with this rental. The owners are warm and kind hosts, and the apartment is spacious, well appointed, quiet, in a great location for easy access to downtown, the beach, the University, and the H-1 to wherever you need to go, and has a spectacular view toward Diamond Head that never grows old. When we're back in Honolulu, we'll definitely want to stay here again.

Paradise With A View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Hale Shoji for the better part of last week. Mary and Dave were a joy to deal with. Respectful of our privacy, but always available if need be. The perfect hosts.

The residence is located at the top of a hill, in a very nice residential area. The apartment itself is spacious and well laid out. The kitchen is well equipped. The view, overlooking Honolulu with the grand visage of Diamond Head as a backdrop, is breathtaking!

A truly wonderful stay.

You can't put a smile under a microscope.. However. we took notes on the very well thought out decor, design and scale of this private retreat. The absolute icing on the cake was the priceless Manoa Valley air matching unparalleled views of Honolulu and beyond. The cleanliness of this private retreat: a perfect 10. We will be back. Thank you!:

The beauty of this property is where it is located. It is centrally located on the Honolulu side of Oahu. So, most everything is relatively close by.
