About Loren Graham(R)
Aloha Kakou, I'm Claude Abou-Sayf(RA) the Property Manager for Graham Properties Inc., a family-owned real estate firm. In my role, I manage new agents and oversees the firm’s marketing, advertising and promotion. Born and raised in Hawaii, I earned my real estate license in 2005. Before that, I lived in Japan where I taught English and surfed. Hawaii is a very unique and special place and Hawaii Real Estate is no exception to this fact. With the rapidly expanding international buyers/sellers, I have been invited abroad multiple times do give educational seminars on Hawaii's real estate buying and selling process. Being born and raised in Hawaii and having lived in Japan for a short while, I have identified the need to bridge the cultural gap that can lead to miscommunication, misconceptions, and hardships. In order to help bridge this gap, I have implemented the "after care" program which gives support to new residents to help them adjust to Hawaii life. I volunteer with Na Kama Kai, teaching children water safety, surfing and ocean environmental awareness. If you need surf lesson suggestions feel free to ask, I can hook you up with some great instructors!

Kuhio village towers
Apartment was clean. Well located on kuhio ave, putting you in prime walking distance to everything in waikiki. Bed was comfortable and clean.
Excellent room with great location
Great room that definitely met all my needs.
The location is excellent as it's a short walk to the beach,shopping and offers excellent access to all the things you would like to do.
The building is safe with 24 hour security,quick elevators and did i mention the location is excellent?
The room is on the second floor so some street noise but i had no problem with it.....i mention it because some may want silence on their vacation.
So if you chose to stay here i believe you'll have as great a vacation as i did...enjoy it.
The low point of your vacation
It wasn't clean, I didn't expect what I saw in pictures, but I was shocked when I saw the room. Pictures are very misleading. Bed sheets are old. Below the top layer, you will find stains of any color that you can imagine. No Windows, Noisy, Smelly.
Of course, the owners don't want you to interrupt their life, but they don't give you what you need either. Move in instructions said "Call someone when you arrived at the airport". No response for few hours and I called very early. Finally, I got the instructions in DropBox. So if you don't have the APP on your cell or have forgot your login, you will have to call again and leave more massages and wait few more hours behind the door.
If you are coming to Hawaii, don't let anything ruin it.
This small studio really met our needs. When in Hawaii, we did not plan on spending much time in the room but rather on the beach! Clean and within walking distance to Waikiki Beach! Eating establishments close by!
Perfect little place to shower and sleep!
My daughter and I stayed at this location for a week as my daughter was going to be starting at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. We wanted to do some sight seeing and get her familiarized with the island before she moved into the campus . The location was great, just a short walk away from the beach and all the action in Waikiki. It is on a very busy street with a lot of traffic and people walking by. At times, especially early mornings it can get quite noisy with buses, garbage trucks, etc. The 2 windows in the front are definitely not sound proof. The beds were comfortable, on the firm side and the pillows are very firm as well. The place was clean when we arrived and there were enough toiletry supplies and cleaning supplies to aid with sweeping and cleaning as needed. We did not cook at all during our week stay but did use the little refrigerator and microwave for leftovers from eating out. There are many food places close by so we took advantage of trying out many places. There is a bus stop right on the same block which was convenient for us as we did not rent a vehicle and our location was easily found by our Uber drivers. We were out and about early everyday enjoying what the Island had to offer so this was really the perfect place for us to have stayed!
great little place -
Great little place real close to the beach, basic kitchen, bathroom bedding necessities are all included; everything you need withing walking distance. We did have one slight issue when we got into the room but we let Loren Know and he fixed the issue immediately, so that was great! -(bonus pints for the speedy response) - Definitely best value place in the area.
The one drawback about this place, when we stayed, was the person next door would yell talk and laugh obnoxiously at 3:30am on the shared balcony. I'm not sure if the person lived there or if she was also on VRBO for the same week we were there. Either way just take some earplugs or headphones to be on the safe side.
