Central location, great space--- mix of high-end and practical... wonderful views of ocean and Diamond Head. We got a car through local rental agency that was walking distance from hotel for day trips, leveraging cool touring apps (parked at the local marina as advised by hosts). Ate a combo of on-property restaurants, off-site restaurants, take-out and grocery store foods. Oh and refilled water bottles at the gym, along with grabbing extra towels at spa pool to avoid the constantly having to manage towel cards.
+ very good quality of furnishings
+ the landlord was quick to reply
+ central location, close to the beach / Waikiki (good bus connection)
+ very good food places nearby
+ the landlord let us check out later because of our late flight
-/+ apartment is next to a gas station which did not bother us (it was not loud or smelly)
- A welcome letter was missing with the necessary information for WLAN and also enough bed sheets for the advertised 6 beds but landlord was very quick to provide it after we sent an email. (Maybe you let him know in advance how many beds you will need.)
The kitchen is very nice but a coffee machine and toaster are missing (in case this is crucial to you but a coffee place is just opposite the apartment). Also, there could be more cutlery, mugs, plates etc., for 6 people it might not be sufficient.
You cannot open the windows properly to air the rooms (it was slightly stale/smelly) which we prefer over an aircon. But the aircon works well and once you switched it on it is not a problem anymore.
