"The perfect location for our one night stay in Waikiki. We needed a place to stay for just a one nighter, as we were participating in the Susan G. Komen, Relay for Life event that was held at Magic Island, a stone's throw away from our cozy apartment. The perfect setting! Away from the busy Waikiki scene, yet close to everything.
Emmanuel, the owner, was very responsive once the request for the apartment was submitted via email. He answered each and every email within minutes and answered every question I had.. We met Emmanuel at the 7-11 which is conveniently located next to the apartment building! Escorting us to the parking structure, he explained the procedure to enter and exit, then walked us through the steps on how to enter the parking elevator using the keys he had given us (he actually had us do it ourselves so we'd know exactly how to utilize it). Such a great teacher!
As we entered the apartment, he explained where things were and how to use the air conditioner (24/7 for the bedroom AC) and the portable AC should we need it. The apartment was fully equipped, like home. Since we were staying for just a night, we didn't need the range that was there, nor all the beach gear that we available on the lanai! There was even a walking stick, hmmm, maybe next time, a trip to the beach and a breezy hike might be in store! The refrigerator was a great amenity, we needed to put a lot of food that would be taken to our evening event. It wasn't a hotel room size refrigerator either! It was large enough to place everything we had with much room to spare! There were even iced mugs in the freezer, even if we didn't use them, I'm sure it sure comes in handy if you needed to consume alcohol. Cheers!
Also, the Wi Fi in this place fast! My nephew mentioned, "The Wi Fi is great, it's super fast!" as he played on his iPad. He was a happy camper in the apartment too.
The apartment was quaint, clean and cozy. The coolness sure added to the many bonuses on such a blazing, hot summer day. It was nice to get settled in with our belongings and rest before our evening event.
We were so blessed to have noticed this apartment on VRBO. It appeared to be the only 1 nighter available in July for this apartment. It seems many people know about this place and have rented it out, we were fortunate to have been able to have our brief stay here on July 16, 2016.
Mahalo, Emmanuel for being such a gracious, kind and generous host! We sure hope to stay longer next time."
