in front of a very quiet beach

  • 4 of 5

we stayed in the condo for 6 night. the bed is extremely comfortable. the lanai is facing very picturesque beach. the unit was clean and well supplied. great family-run restaurants around (Jack's restaurant is a must for breakfast). easy assess to all attractions: Waikiki is less then 10 min drive, the airport is 20 min away, East cost is easily reached by a beautiful road. the beach beside the condo is very shallow and a bit rocky, i would recommend to have the wet-shoes but it is great for kayaking or standing board.

Awesome studio on beach!

  • 4 of 5

The studio was just as described and the pictures are accurate. It was a perfect location for access to the city and activities...yet far enough away from the craziness. Literally steps away from the beach and amazing sunrises. Only cons are the traffic noise (waves are louder though) and coral/shells/rocks on beach and in water...just bring water shoes.

Great Location and just out of the busy part of Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for work. The instructions about checking in were very detailed and also included popular places to visit and things to see. I would recommend this location to anyway. Especially because they provide surf boards too. Very friendly and great price.

Great hideaway

  • 4 of 5

This is really about 20-25 min out from Honolulu because of traffic on a normal day, but it was perfect for us! It is so easy to shoot to the Northshore and explore the rest of the island. We loved having an isolated beach pretty much to ourselves every evening. Listening to the waves at night with the doors open was heavenly. I would highly recommend staying here was very comfy with two people, would be tight with more though.

Surf mom

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place close but far enough away from Waikiki to enjoy the true Hawaii experience. We found it! The studio was cozy with everything we needed. The view here is astonishing! We had surf boards, a kayak and hot tub to use as we wished. Location , location, location!!!! We were able to drive east, west and north and come "home" to a completely quiet and private setting. The beach is so close and quiet it was a delight to hear the ocean at night. The trade winds kept us cool at night. I would stay here anytime as a matter of fact I don't want to leave. In a word Paradise! Thank you for the amazing hospitality! I plan on returning soon! Everyone was wonderful!

Great spot to get away from it all.

  • 4 of 5

We considered staying in a hotel but this studio won out and I'm so glad it did. Every morning we woke up, made coffee and watched the sunrise on the beach just steps out our door. To have a kitchen with small fridge and cooktop was really nice and the space itself is just as good as a hotel. Not having to pay to park our rental car overnight was also a huge bonus. The place felt very private but since it's not air conditioned we had many fans running in the windows. I noticed not many places use AC so we became quickly accustomed. Also, as some other reviews suggested it may be time to upgrade the mattress and sheets- it was lumpy and not very comfortable. It's a really nice space but I guess it could use a little more cleaning between guests. After those minor notes I would still definitely recommend this studio. It was so nice to be away from the hordes of tourists and have a private oasis with great places to explore nearby. Nicole was prompt in her communication and very accommodating.
