Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely little condo with everything you need for your stay in Honolulu. Ssen and Norio were wonderful to work with. Not only were they excellent at answering any questions regarding the rental, but they went above and beyond providing gracious gifts and very helpful insight into more cost effective places to eat or buy groceries. The location was excellent. It was an easy walk to Waikiki beach and all of the upscale shops in the area. There are many choices in the area for dining and the local shop owners were so friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful stay in this well appointed, modern, clean condo. We highly recommend this rental. Thank you Ssen and Norio.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation! Ssen and Norio were fabulous. They went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect! They met us at the condo despite our late arrival, to let us in, show us the place and fill us in about things to do in the area. They didn't need to do that as they have a lock box, but it was nice to meet them in person. They also offered to hold our luggage on our last day as our flight was again late at night, so that allowed us to enjoy our last day to the fullest.

The condo itself was perfect for us and our needs. We were there in part to run the Hibiscus half marathon, so it was great to have a nicely renovated, extremely clean unit with a simple but efficient kitchen to cook up a carbo loaded dinner the night before the run and then get a great night sleep in a comfy bed before our 5:30 am start time!! (Foodland for groceries is a block or so away and Walmart is only about a 25 min walk if needed!). The location was great. We have stayed in many different areas of Waikiki ( in fact we own our own condo there but were unable to use it that week) and we really loved the area. Less pedestrian traffic as it is a bit more residential, but there are still lots of stores and restaurants. We loved the wailaia coffee shop for a quick bite (check out the tiki bar bar lounge and happy hour... Perfect on a rainy afternoon!).

The pool area was so pretty and quiet... We enjoyed it every day. We would grab an acai berry bowl from tropical tribe down the road and then enjoy by the pool taking in the views of Ft. Durrusey park.

As for was about a 8-10 min walk to our favourite beach in Waikiki. A quick walk across the street through the Hilton and down the boardwalk.. We laughed that our walk to the beach was probably quicker than some folks actually staying at the Hilton as it is such a huge hotel! We also walked to the mall in about 15-20 min and to all moana beach several times as we attended the Lantern Festival.

In all, a great place and we would highly recommend the unit and dealing with Ssen and Norio. We have stayed all over the world for many years using Homeaway, VRBO and AirBNB. This place was once of the most comfortable and well stocked places we have rented. The owners were very thoughtful in their amenities.... ( beach chairs, towels, flip flops, shampoo, paper towels, juice, water etc etc) and wonderful to work with. A perfect trip....thank you Ssen and Norio!

For our first vacations in Hawaii, we consider ourselves very lucky to have rented this apartment. It is ideally located near the beach, restaurants, convenience stores, buses and for shopping. The apartment is modern, clean and well equipped, very secured and have many facilities: pool, chairs and also laundry room. We highly recommend this apartment and Ssen and Norio were very nice hosts! We are really considering going back next year!

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, close to the beach, Ala Moana Shopping Centre, groceries, restaurants, bus stop (if needed), the main strip of Waikiki. The unit was excellent, very clean, bright and spacious for a couple. The kitchen was stocked with all the basics that we could possibly need as well as all toiletries, and extras like beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels etc. Ssen and Norio were amazing and a huge help to us as our flight arrived in Honolulu quite early in the morning and they were there at the unit to meet us early and store our luggage until we could check in which was a lot earlier than we had expected. Would recommend to anyone!
