this rental was perfect for my wife and I for our entire trip. Aside from the frequently dismal weather for the 7 night stay, this was the perfect vacation. Mostly because of the rental. Jill and her husband Daniel were great hosts. The apartment was clean and modernized. There is no A/C in the unit but it really wasn't needed. Ceilings fans and open window breeze from the shore which about a block away, made things comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. Just a couple of trips to the local grocery which is less than 1/2 mile from the property and we saved a ton in eating out expenses. There are plenty of places to eat out, but it can get a bit pricey. You literally do not need anything other than your clothes, personal toiletries and food and drinks. Will need a vehicle if you plan on visiting other locations on the island. We planned a lot of things in Honolulu as well as checking out some of the scenes on the east side of the island. its only about a 35-40 min drive to sites like Pearl Harbor and about an hour to Diamond Head which are both must do's. There is a beach shore about 2 miles away where sea turtles frequent. (Made my wife's vacation to see one up close). The water tends to be sorta chilly on the north side compared to the water temps on the east side and in Waikiki but once you get in and used to it, I'm sure it will be fine for most people.
Again, thanks to Jill for providing this amazing home away from home. I couldn't have imagined it any better and we will definitely be utilizing this location when we plan a return trip
