Communication with the owner was excellent both before and during the stay, A few minor issues were dealt with immediately and in person (and with good grace!)
The unit is on the 26th floor of a building directly behind the Waikiki Prince, facing out to Ala Moana Blvd. The unit is basic, clean and fresh; the large window fully opens to partial views of Ala Wai Marina, but at night you will have to choose between a noisy, window mount AC unit, and an open window to the noise of traffic.
The unit was perfect for us, as we were visiting family on a boat in the marina. Parking is included (even nearby hotels charge for parking!) and easily accessible. The swimming lagoon, Friday night fireworks, many food options (including Foodland Farms for groceries) and shops are close, by foot or by car.
The two elevators were being serviced and upgraded during our stay, but we had no serious issues (perhaps a four minute wait at the longest). The pool is shaded in the AM, and late PM, which is perfect for hot Honolulu days. The pool was never crowded, has open shower and lounge chairs, as well as table with chairs and BBQ.
Not fancy, but a very good value at the west end of Waikiki.
