About the Property

Studio with Kitchen and Queen bed with option to connect to 2nd studio for more

Allow me to welcome you to our Hawaiian home with the warmth of our “aloha” hospitality. We are just half a block from the beach in one of Waikiki's best locations. We actually have two charming studios, adjacent to one another, and each sleep two people. This studio, UNIT 1, is the one pictured here in this ad. It has a comfortable Queen bed of soft linens, a full kitchen with oven, a bathroom with plush amenities and handrails. If you are a group of 3 or 4, we can accommodate your party by adding our second studio, UNIT 2 (VRBO listing #569348), which has two twin beds (able to convert them into a King bed), and is also with soft linens and plush bath amenities. It has a private lanai but no kitchen; although it has a mini fridge, microwave and a coffeemaker. Both units are stocked full of useful amenities like wifi, cable TV, beach towels, rafts, etc. The building has a pool and a furnished rooftop deck with breathtaking views of the pristine turquoise ocean and golden sands of Waikiki Beach, an unobstructed panorama of Diamond Head, and a bird’s eye over Kapiolani Park, the beautiful 300-acre sprawl of lush greenery that’s home to the Zoo, the Shell, the Aquarium and many more recreational activities and island festivities. On the rooftop deck, you’ll relax in serenity above the bustling city, soak in the sun, find a shaded retreat, watch the sunrise AND sunset, and dine under the stars listening to the soft sounds of nocturnal zoo animals or possibly a world-class musical performance from the Shell. Rented together or separately, either of these two studio units make for an excellent home away from home in Waikiki and they're in a perfect location, for an incredible value! The price in this ad reflects this studio (UNIT 1) alone. Ask me for a combination deal or visit the other studio listing if you're interested only in that unit (VRBO Listing #569348). Mahalo.

  • This Studio Apartment has one Queen Bed and it can be shared by 2 people comfortably. This studio has a kitchen and a bathroom. If you are a group of more than 2, I have two other studios in the same building. Studio #2 is the apartment right next door to this one. It has two Twin Beds which can be joined together to make a King bed, according to preference. It has no kitchen, but it does have a private lanai and bathroom. Studio 3, on the 7th floor, has a double bed and a futon-like sofa so it can accommodate up to three people. It also has a kitchen and no lanai. Because Studios 1 & 2 are next door to each other, renting them both allows a party of 4 to enjoy all the amenities of 2 sleeping areas, use of the kitchen, two bathrooms and a private lanai. Studio 3 is great added space when you and your traveling companions don't need to be on the same floor. ...moreless

Car: Not Necessary

World famous Waikiki Beach is a bustling neighborhood of Honolulu. I call it the Manhattan of the Pacific for its world class shopping, eclectic dining, exciting nightlife, and even places of historical interest like the Hawaiian Royal Palace or the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor; and yet it's also beautiful Hawaii, with a special kind of aloha spirit that warms the heart, and all the 'fun in the sun' activities like, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, sailing, wave-riding on outriggers, hiking mountain trails like Diamond Head, playing in waterfalls, hang gliding, parasailing, jet skiing, and so much more. The golden sands and turquoise waters of Waikiki are literally just steps away from my building. There you will find beach boys to take you out on a surfboard or for a sail. After the sun sets, Waikiki's shoreline is like a jeweled necklace, glittering with lights, and on the sand is set up a giant screen for watching family-friendly movies certain nights of the week. Just across the street is the famous Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium, both of which are great attractions for children and adults alike, satisfying the inquisitive nature in all of us. Waikiki's Shell is also across the street, nestled within a tree-lined area of the park, and maybe more importantly somewhat within earshot of the building. You can sometimes hear the musical performances of the big acts visiting Waikiki, while relaxing comfortably under the stars on my building's rooftop deck. When visiting, you don't even need a car. Oahu has one of the country's best public transportation systems, with reliable and inexpensive bus service around the island. And you can easily hop on a bus right in front of the building. Waikiki offers something for everyone, it's going to be more about whether you find the time to do it all...of course, we will welcome you back with warm aloha!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am from Southern California, born and raised. I have another VRBO condo in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Sherman Oaks (425528). I love making my guests feel at home and take great pride in the great reviews I have received.

Why the Owner Chose Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii, United States of America:
I was so lucky to find this place!! It's a real treasure in an island paradise! I looked for a long time before uncovering this gem, just a half block from the world famous Waikiki Beach, in a great building that's well-maintained and the neighbors are very nice, with a view from the rooftop deck, and a swimming pool, plus everything you could possibly want is in walking distance!! I LOVE this place!!!!!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Where else can you make breakfast in your own kitchen and sit on a rooftop deck to watch the sunrise light up Diamond Head, waking up tons of chirping birds in the park's old banyan trees; take a brief stroll outside your front door to the golden sands of Waikiki beach to swim, surf and play in the warm turquoise waters; shop at world class retailers up and down Kalakaua Avenue, hop on a bus practically right outside the front door to explore the island and its countless wonders, and then come home to enjoy a sunset drink on the rooftop or prepare dinner and dine under the stars listening to the music from the Shell or the muffled roar of a lion and other nocturnal animals across the street in the zoo? Welcome to my paradise, it could be your home away from home, too.
