About Owner/Manager

My family and I love fine living, fitness, nutrition and making people feel welcome and happy!

Our journey to opening the doors to Aspire Perspire Nourish Lodging & Concierge began way back in the 1990's. Our many travels to Hawaii kept us coming back for more aloha each year. The healthy environment, active living, and plentiful local, fresh food make Hawaii a truly magical place for wellness.

As my passion for fitness and nutrition has grown, my family's health and outlook on eating well has flourished. Together my family and I discovered a whole new world filled with people who share the same passion for living well. No matter where we are in the world, this philosophy travels with us!

At Aspire Perspire Nourish Lodging & Concierge, we aim to help you 'live' this philosophy while away from home and in the comfort of our lodging. We designed our suites so that you can cook fresh, healthy foods, and get the rest you deserve and need.

Come stay with us and experience the healthy, fit, nutritious life you love to live!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is really in the heart of it all. Easy walking distance to beaches, shopping, groceries, restaurants, nightlife, and more. Being a corner unit with 2 lanais was a definite bonus. Lots of light and great ocean and city views. Dedicated parking spot was also a real luxury. The unit was very clean and Lia was helpful and responsive throughout the reservation and rental process. Another bonus was that this unit was stocked with lots of great supplies which made hanging at the beach more comfortable (beach chairs, towels, coolers, and umbrella). We've stayed in Waikiki many times in a variety of buildings condos/hotels. At this price point this location is hard to beat. The cleanliness really exceeded our expectations and this unit was far nicer than others we've stayed at in this same building. There were only two downsides: No AC and some night time noise when windows were open. Neither of these were actual issues for us. Our winter stay was cool enough to be comfortable at night and we live in the city, so I am used to the night time sounds that come with big city life (and if you really need them earplugs were provided). We had a fabulous time and will definitely be back soon!
