Overview

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.

About Patty Bourne & Brad Knight

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.

Patty Bourne & Brad Knight purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Patty Bourne & Brad Knight chose South Oahu

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!!!!!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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.

We were pleasantly pleased with the accommodations in the room. The bed was very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The hotel is an older facility with a lot of charm. The corridors are clean and we'll maintained. The room meet all our expectation by providing a comfortable bed, a small kitchenette with a sink, a refrigerator, a coffee maker, a microwave, dishes, cups and silverware. The swimming pool needs painting. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and informative on places to eat and places for sightseeing. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance which made for a great times walking before and after along the beach. Paid public parking is across the street. There were a few days when it was difficult to find a parking spot. Overall, we had a wonderful experience at this facility.

Perfect location and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

We recently rented this studio for a week while we were in Waikiki.

The good: Excellent and fast service from the hotel manager, thank you! Call the number on the back of the door if you have a concern about the room.

The bad: This unit is dated, has no view and no privacy if you open the blinds and it definitely does need some updating.

The GREAT. The location for this studio is just steps away from everything and we walked almost everywhere. We also used the red, pink, green and blue trolley system for sightseeing and shopping. The beach, zoo and the aquarium are right across the street. There is no balcony but the views from the roof top were awesome! This is clean unit and it is also has everything you will need for your stay, including a beach umbrella, beach towels, two beach chairs, kitchen supplies, an umbrella in case it rains, hair dryer, bug spray for hiking... you name it!

Things to do... climb Diamond Head, hike to Manoa Falls, snorkel in Hanauma Bay, go to the Paradise Cove Luau, eat at the local restaurants, bars and bakeries. Try the Cheesecake Factory too.

We would definitely stay there again if we were to return to the area.

Perfect Location and Set-up

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. The property was exactly as advertised and reviewed. The location was amazing and the unit had everything you needed for a short or extended stay. Steps from the beach and walking distance to restaurants, a grocery store, shopping, diamond head trail, the zoo, aquarium, etc. The owners provided body boards, beach chairs and sun screen. They also recommended great places to eat. We especially liked 'Surf and Turf Tacos'. The building staff were friendly. We were able to arrange underground parking for the duration of our two week stay. There is laundry available in the building and a quiet roof top patio with amazing views. We would like to thank Patty for renting us her apartment. We would definitely stay there again if we were to return to the area.

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!
