About The Owner

My husband and I have lived and worked in Honolulu and Waikiki for over 30 years. We own our own business and I am a school teacher. We met in Waikiki and enjoy spending our free time in the area taking advantage of the beautiful scenery, fun water sports and beach activities, shopping, and restaurants there.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Waikiki

We were very excited to find this condo in such a terrific location right at the entrance to Waikiki. We enjoy spending time staying there ourselves as well as having friends and family come to town and stay in the unit.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite part of staying at the unit is it's close proximity to some of our favorite Waikiki restaurants and Waikiki Beach. Some places we would recommend for our guests to try are Kobe Steak House, Tony Roma's, and Top of Waikiki.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The condo was well suited for our stay, almost everything we needed was there, and the location was very convenient for our daily travels. It was really great having a dedicated parking space waiting for us each day, and gated. As female travelers, we appreciated the extra security.

Some problems with one of the air conditioner units. The host explained the circumstances, and promised to take care of it.

Two items not in the condo but wished we had: a cutting board in the kitchen, and a hair dryer in the bathroom.

Lots of great beach stuff available! Including towels.

I would recommend this place, and best price for the size.

Great accommodations, location, price

  • 5 of 5

Carol - the owner, was great, friendly, informative & helpful. I stayed for a week w/a friend. The place was clean, well furnished & came with a parking space (a big plus). The beds were comfortable! Location is great! No complaints & would not hesitate to book again next time I am visiting Honolulu!

Great price. Very convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent4 nights here whilst attending a conference at the convention centre. This apartment is located very close to the convention centre and thus very convenient. It is also only about 10 minutes walk to Waikiki beach through the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The owners Caol and Wally were very helpful during checki, especially as we were late arriving, and Carol explained everything. They provide a lot of extras to make visiting the beach better/easier - boogie boards, floaties for kids, towels etc. The building is secure and the area seemed quite safe with lots of restaurants nearby. It is an older building but the apartment is clean and comfortable. I read some of the reviews about noise but had no problem sleeping. The air conditioning struggled a bit to keep the place cool but I visited Hawaii so want it to be warm!

Absolutely awful place- Avoid Avoid Avoid

  • 1 of 5

We booked to stay here for four days in July. The listing description was inaccurate and extremely dishonest. We ended up leaving two days early because of how filthy and disgusting this place was. Beware of the other reviews- they are a combination of not recent and plugged reviews.

Below is what I sent them after this terrible experience-

Hi Carol,

I appreciate your message. I wish I could reciprocate with some kind words about your unit. I found it to be not like described and in poor shape. The air conditioner in the room attached to the living room did not work - it blew air but it was not cool. There was no fan in the living room- the table fan blew very little air in a limited trajectory. The temperature in the apartment was unbearably hot. The power tripped multiple times and after resetting the breaker a couple of times, I just stopped doing it as I did not want to create a fire hazard. This also meant that We had no ac in both rooms.

The bathtub did not drain normally - extremely slow and had rust spots in it. The toilet seat was broken and kept moving off it's pivots. We saw multiple cockroaches both at night and also during the day in different parts of the apartment- I was unable to use the air bed as I could not sleep close to the floor with roaches around. There was dirt on all fans, above the refrigerator and the bathroom had hair left over from earlier in the bath area.

It was an extremely unpleasant experience and we felt exhausted after not being able to relax or sleep there. We left earlier than planned, and did not stay the full four nights- we left on the third day.

I do unto others as I expect to be done to me- if this was my property, I would refund at least one night and the cleaning fee in addition to my security deposit.

Please feel free to call me anytime at xxx-xxx-xxxx if you would like to discuss further.

Sincerely,

Great experience: very clean and neat unit!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to spend almost 1 week at this comfortable, well furnished, clean and really well located condo.

Also, the owner was always attentive and responsive to our inquiries.

We will go back there for sure if the opportunity comes!

As you can see, we highly recommend this unit!
