  • Why leave the lanai...surfers...waves...rocks...boats...snorkeling...all from three floors up!

    "VERY clean, cute, and a breathtaking view. We LOVED it here. Heather has remodeled and stocked this place with everything you need to have many wonderful days on the beach. Quality beach umbrella, chairs, beach towels, cooler, snorkel equipment, and binoculars to watch the surfers and boats that are outside your patio door. Did I mention that you can snorkel from the lanai? Yes, if you are there early evening you will see schools of fish coming up to feed on the rocks just to the right of the lanai. They are beautiful and the water is crystal clear. No snorkel needed. :-) We even saw a 6 foot eel one morning. That was amazing! We purchased our food from Costco or the local Sack&Save so that we could "cook in" and enjoy the view from the lanai. It was the best restaurant on the island. Heather was a great host. She seemed to really care about us as guests and that we would enjoy the condo. She has a well stocked kitchen, plush towels, comfortable bed, and a ceiling fan. Heather returned our damage deposit in full the day after we got home from Hawaii. The only reservation I would mention is that if you are big on the night life/glitz/glamor of Waikiki this is not the place for you. This condo is on the area of the island where the locals live. Almost all areas of Oahu seem to have a homeless issue so you will see their tents/encampments everywhere. We were never bothered by anyone and the locals we approached for help were very kind. I will admit that it did take some time for me to be comfortable with the homelessness. Just a tip - ALL beach bathrooms on Oahu are filthy. Bring hand sanitizer or a small bottle of soap with you. Wear your suit if you plan to stop at a beach because you won't feel like changing in the bathrooms...at least we did not. We would stay at this condo again, we miss it so much. We were not sure we would like Oahu because it seemed to commercialized but this condo made Oahu a favorite for us. Thank you, Heather for a wonderful, comfortable stay. We really enjoyed your condo."

  • Great value and 1.8miles to the nearest beach

    "Pros: has what you need for a home away from home. Host is easy to reach and responds quickly. Close to uncrowded beautiful beaches. Has a salt water pool and plenty of BBQ grills on the premises. Has 3 boogie boards, mini beach cooler, beach chairs, umbrella, and a snorkel set. Laundry room on 4th floor. Take elevator to the top floor and look at the great view of your surrounding. About 35 minutes away from honolulu without traffic. Bus stop. Parking. Beautiful and simple studio set up. There's DVR on the TV. Cons: if you're driving to other places, Just be aware that you'll be in traffic. 1 hour and 10 min from honolulu in traffic. If you leave on a weekend get your 50 refundable back and deal with the hassle of constantly getting a visitors pass but the spots are close to the building. When I first came in the place didn't have three items needed but the owner was quick to respond and took care of it. Every time I woke up in the morning there would be a new roach in the restroom but there's bug spray. I think they're in the building because I saw then outside of the studio as well. Peacocks are beautiful but they are loud and sound like they're outside your window since you're on the second floor. For two nights there was the noise of the peacocks, banging from the neighbors either upstairs, baby crying on the side, and cats. Haha... I was exhausted so I still slept but it took a little while. Laundry card can only be reloaded in $5,10,20 not singles. I would stay there again."

  • Home away from home!

    "Such a nice, quiet neighborhood. Kind neighbors, lots of peacocks everywhere! (I was really hoping to see them!). Great pool and hot tub, kids (and husband) really enjoyed! Loved "coming home" each night, instead of a hotel room in a busy area. Great, empty beaches nearby. Not too long of a drive to other areas (about an hour from North Beach), loved the coastline drive each day when we went out to play! Will definitely be recommending to anyone i know planning on visiting Oahu, this condo was so wonderful and "homey", owners were kind and easy to work with. Provided highchair and playpen for our infant (thank you sooo much!) Also had a stroller, beach umbrella, boogy boards (9yr old son enjoyed!) and snorkel gear (we had our own, but good to know it was provided!) Hope to stay here again the next time we visit this island! Thank you for such a wonderful stay!"
