"This place was exactly what my nieces (19 and 23 yrs old) needed. It was centrally located and had great views of both Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach, there is also the canal next to a golf course with lush greenery. I had breakfast on the lanai every morning. We were in extremely reasonable walking distance to Waikiki Beach, great eateries, and shopping. The noise, surprisingly was minimal considering how close we were to "where it all happens". The ABC stores are where it's at- basically on every corner with fresh snacks and groceries, toiletries etc. We did lots of beach bumming and eating which we walked everywhere to. One activity we did which required driving was parasailing- however we rented a car for the week. It's about a 20 minute drive from Hanauma Bay and other parts of Honolulu. We visited the Dole Plantation, again we drove to, in Wahiawa, which is about 45 minutes away and a BEAUTIFUL drive full of lush greenery. Then we also went to the Pearl Harbor Museum but was picked up for that. We also visited Chinatown, which we weren't huge fans of... mostly because we've been to Chinatowns in NYC, San Fransisco and Chicago and that was about 15 minutes away- so we definitely appreciated the parking spot.
Upon arrival we called him and he met us out front of the villas, guided us to our parking spot and took us to our condo. The only thing that sort of left us confused and waiting was we never got a real email confirmation from Budi via email, but because he and I had a conversation over the phone, I didn't feel the need to have an official confirmation... maybe I should have? But it came through. During our stay Budi emailed me the confirmation page, and then picked up our payment. Other than that, Budi is nice, friendly and informative.
We would definitely stay here again, and if we have a bigger group we might see if Budi has something else available for us before we seek out other properties.
