About the property

Renovated studios w kitchenette in private building

This is a wonderful building just two blocks from Waikiki Beach. Your lanai overlooks Honolulu's most beautiful vista - Kapiolani Park and Diamond Head Crater. This is all the benefits of 'urban' Waikiki with pleasure of nature and beautiful scenery.

Located on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki. This is the peaceful side of Waikiki where Kapiolani Park, Ala Wai Golf Course, Diamond Head Tennis Center, Honolulu Aquarium, Waikiki Shell, Kapiolani Bandstand, Honolulu Zoo, Diamond Head Crater, and the seasonal 'Sunset on the Beach' movies are your neighbors. You can enjoy your entire visit here without a rental car, since shopping, beaches, restaurants, nightlife, surf lessons, catamaran sailing, tennis, golf, walking, beachwalking, cycling, 24-Hour Fitness, snorkeling and much more are all right here. And tour buses for Pearl Harbor, Polynesian Cultural Center, Dole Cannery and more have pickups close by too.

Each room overlooks Diamond Head Crater and Kapiolani Park, a 200-acre greenway in the middle of Honolulu that King Kalakaua named after his beloved wife. Kapiolani Park is the nexus of activity each weekend with varied special events and activities. This is where the residents of the Waikiki and Diamond Head neighborhoods come to walk, jog, play in the waves and relax. Still, the vibrancy of Waikiki is at your back door.

Ten individual studio rooms are available; each unit includes kitchenette and private balcony with a stunning view of Waikiki's most treasured landmark.

Perfect location! We very much enjoyed our stay. The room was impeccably clean and well equipped. The manager made us feel very welcome and was available for anything we needed. We are looking forward to returning soon.

We had a great stay here. Room is clean and had everything we needed. The only thing it could use is bigger waste baskets in the room or more than one. I would absolutely stay here again.

They say it's all happening at the zoo.....

First I would like to say that Miou was a wonderful host. The room, about the size of a hotel room, while smallish, was very well equipped. Having the two burner oven was great and we used it often. The unit in the shower was great! The building itself, very well kept up and had many, many, things for renters to use from a BBQ to beach chairs, is conveniently located to the beach and downtown Waikiki if that's your preference. Our biggest problem was, we like to hear the sound of the surf at night which we were unable to do. Plus, we like to sleep with a window open, and here that meant the sliding door, but it was so noisy from traffic on Kuhio and Kapahulu that mostly we had to keep the door closed at night which we were unhappy about. But...if you don't mind sleeping in air conditioning instead of the island breezes, you will be fine. All in all, the room was really nice, just not for us for reasons mentioned.

Great stay! Awesome location just two blocks from Waikiki beach with wonderful views of Diamond Head Crater. Very clean, spacious and had everything we needed including beach supplies! Miou was really knowledgeable about the area and local activities. She was also attentive to any and all of our needs during the stay. Would definitely stay there again.

Close to Waikiki beach and everything you need in the city but still has the feel of nature overlooking the zoo and the park. Beautiful view of Diamond Head Crater to wake up to every morning and so enjoyable to sit out on the wonderful lanai and drink cups of coffee made in the on-site kitchenette (saved a ton of money not eating out all of the time) and watch the sunrise. Wish I could attach pictures to this review! Also the owners were great about making sure all of our need were met - 5 stars for sure!!
