Guestbook comments from the manager
"Locals from Kailua who decided to play tourist for the month in Waikiki, while our house was being worked on. This was perfect for us. Loved that everything was within walking distance, especially the beach, aquarium & zoo! We ate out more then we should've but loved the variety, again within walking distance. Studio was large, nicely done with its own a/c, and CLEAN. The grounds are kept nice and clean too. Staff is helpful & friendly. We will come back for sure and recommend here for our family & friends. Mahalo and A Hui Hou!"

AFFORDABLE, COMFORTABLE, CLEAN, AND SAFE.

  • 5 of 5
The studio is located off the main thoroughfares of Waikiki and accessible by foot to all of the the area attractions. If you have a car, affordable, covered parking is available with public transportation being a few steps away. The building and accommodations are quaint, clean and well maintained. Wi-fi is free and has a strong signal. Jill and staff are pleasant and welcoming. If you are not used to a little city noise (the occasional car, passerby, etc.), you can close the windows and still be comfortable. I would recommend this place for those that are looking for an affordable and extending stay on Oahu. While the restaurants on the island are plentiful and world-class, I would take advantage of preparing meals in the studio. Thanks Jill.

NICE STUDIO IN STRATEGIC PLACE AT AFFORDABLE PRICE

  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely at a strategic location in Waikiki. It is very near to the central beach of Waikiki and the bus stops. We had good internet connection and there's an extra walk-in closet with drawers where you can keep clothes, place your baggage, or surf gear. We didn't need to use the air conditioner, as the ceiling fans and windows provided for a nice constant breeze. The place was well maintained and clean (although the age of the building does show), and overall is a very good deal in terms of costs and the facilities it offers. The one thing that took getting used to is the night-time noise of Waikiki, but this is an acceptable trade-off for such a strategically located place. In comparison to some of the negative comments that we read before staying in this apartment, there appears to have been lots of improvement. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this to those looking for affordable, central accommodation for longer stays.

BEST VALUE IN WAIKIKI

  • 5 of 5
I live in Waikiki and can say for certain that you will not find a better deal than the Whale Watcher for your Hawaii vacation. Recently, my Dad came for a three month visit and stayed here. The room was spacious (huge walk in closet too), well appointed and had a very comfortable bed. The location is perfect.It is dead center Waikiki, close to every amenity,one block away from every major bus route in this city and best of all, only 10 minutes walk from the beach! The ladies who run the place are friendly, efficient and always helpful. The street itself is busy as is every street in Waikiki, so you will encounter activity on the outside. Inside though, the building is very tranquil and clean. I would not hesitate to rent here again for any of my future visitors.

TRUST ME - YOU DONT WANT TO STAY HERE

  • 1 of 5
We have stayed here off and on for the past several months. The owners appear to be running out of money and the building is deteriorating fast:
1. Three different resident managers in 6 months
2. quality of staff deteriorating
3. elevator often malfunctions
4. most washing machines are broken
5. cockroach problem in most units
6. constant problems with the internet
7. plumbing problems and flooding in the units
8. When will the bedbugs appear?

DECENT ROOM, CRABBY, RUDE RESIDENT MANAGER

  • 1 of 5
The Accommodations are Decent for the price, but you can tell it is a budget place to stay. There's no picture of the kitchen simply because there isn't one! What they call a Kitchen is just a extension of the bathroom with a hot plate, and a cabinet. The Building is under new management now, and the Friendly Hosts no longer work here. The Resident Manager Pat has the opposite of the Aloha sprit. And if you need anything even if it is something you should of had in the first place. She'll be very rude about it and make you fell very unwelcomed. I have seen many New guest waiting outside for her with all there luggage trying to get ahold of her. Jerry is very nice! but you only talk to him when making a reservation. I would not recommend staying here if your looking for a affordable place to stay check Craigslist first.
