We traveled to Oahu with our toddler daughter to attend a wedding and feel extremely fortunate to have found this unit! All of our potential concerns (i.e. how can it be so inexpensive? Is it legit?!) went out the door when we walked in the door of this great unit. The owner was excellent to work with in every way -- the reservation process was seamless and we had our deposit back within a week of returning home.
If you need a ton of space, this unit isn't for you; however, who goes to Hawaii to spend time indoors? The unit is comfortable and well-apportioned. From the beach chairs and mats in the closet to the kitchen stocked with dishes and utensils, it truly felt like a home away from home.
One of the best parts of this unit was location... it's within walking distance of everything in Waikiki, while being on the quieter Ala Wai side. The view of the city and golf course from the living room is very nice... watching storms roll down the hill was great.
The property is clean, well-maintained, matched every picture, and has been recently updated. There's a Safeway just down the road, and at least 15 ABC stores within a 5 minute walk. We had some friends staying at local hotels who got half the unit for three times the price, and had to pay $20 parking on top of their hotel room.
If you have a trip to Honolulu planned and this unit is available, book it before someone else does! We certainly have been recommending it to everyone we know.
Pros: Location, price, great value, clean and well-maintained unit, secure building, great view of the mountains, in-unit wireless Internet access, quiet neighbors, no vermin.
Cons: Kind of small, older building.
