Difficult parking, hostel-like accomodations, slow response from property managers
Overall, the actual accommodations met our needs to fit 8 people. But read very carefully, there is a lot of fine print.
Getting into the property proved difficult during our stay. The parking office was closed on weekends, holidays, and after 4 PM. The owners weren't clear on this, but thanks to some of the attendants, they gave some discounted rates since it was the weekend. If you plan on using this property, try and check-in before the parking office closes to activate your card. If you don't, prepare to pay over $36 for overnight parking. Also the UNRESERVERVED spots that you are allowed to park are very minimal. It took us about 15-20 minutes to find parking and take two elevators and enter two doors to get into the unit every time we needed to park.
The space is open and does have enough beds for our party of 8 adults, but i wouldn't recommend having more than 6 people including kids. There is truly only one full queen bed in the single bedroom, with two additional twin beds. All other sleeping accommodations is the sofa in the living room that converts to a double, and a floor cushion that can be used as a mattress for a double. The sheets were all mismatched and couldn't tell which ones were for what mattress. The towels were in varying levels of wear and tear. And it had a smell as if they've been in the closet for an extended period of time.
There were some good points like the openness of the living room and lanai section. The actual location was pretty good in that you can walk to many destinations in the area, but we ended up taking our car anyway to avoid the parking fees. Kevin's pantry had a lot of leftover items that some folks left in their stays like unused packets of sugar or tea, soup, and other pantry items.
Everything was adequate, but it made me feel like i was in a hostel. When i was having difficulty accessing the unit, I tried calling the numbers provided from the owners and didn't get a reply. Only through the VRBO app was I able to communicate with them, but it was usually after 12 hours i received a reply. If you've been to downtown area before and know how to navigate the area and are looking for a very minimal no frills type stay, then this would work. Just look for other options in regards to parking or be prepared to include that in your budget.
We love this unit!!!
Everything in this unit was perfect! We had a 15 passenger van that could not fit in the parking area but the awesome aunty who works in the parking booth helped us to figure out a parking space for us that was easy and convenient. We definitely recommend this unit!!
Aloha! Thank you so much for your stay. We're glad you enjoyed it and that we could accommodate you folks!
Central Downtown Honolulu!
Very roomy accommodations with all the comforts of home. We felt a very peaceful and quiet vibe as we first entered through the front door. Appreciated the easy to follow access instructions and communications before our arrival. We enjoyed our daily breakfast of fresh papayas, rambutan and pineapples out on the spacious lanai. After a day of sightseeing the island of Oahu, kids loved the swimming pool and parents enjoyed the hot tub, just outside the condo front door! Perfect location for our visit to Hawaii Pacific University and the newly renovated Aloha Tower Marketplace. Plenty of shops and restaurants within a short walk. Chinatown and the beautiful Hawaii Theater (opened 1921) were only a few minutes walk away. Thank you Lauren!
