About Mario

I arrived in Honolulu in 1996 and purchased this house in 2007. I currently own and have owned several businesses in Honolulu. I love to read books, sing Karaoke and travel. Especially to Hawaii's 9th island, fabulous Las Vegas.

Mario purchased this house in 2007

Why Mario chose Honolulu

Location Location Location. 5 minutes away from busy, noisy Waikiki and located on the southern, sunny side of Oahu.

What makes this house unique

This was an amazing place to stay everything needed for a perfect stay for a large family. Living space is ample so you don't feel like your crowded at all. Great location minutes to stores, beaches and free parking!!! It's tight but perfect you are right at your doorstep. Will definitely stay here again. Management was excellent and always accessible.

My family loved loved loved it!

We will be back.

Nice duplex north of Waikiki

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Oahu. Jennifer and Suzanne were very friendly and helpful. Nice queen beds and A/C units in each of the three bedrooms and a nice living room space made it very comfortable. We will definitely consider staying here again on our next visit to Oahu!

We booked three places through VRBO and fortunately the first two turned out well. I don't generally give bad reviews. I find it incomprehensible that one review has said there was plenty of room for seven people to hang out - that is not correct. We didn't stay there as there was no bedding organised for the children, pillows, beds, nothing. No refund given for the cleaning fee even though we didn't stay there. After I reported to VRBO (according to the proper process) the Manager has refused to deal with me. I called the day before to confirm and the woman said she would meet us there at 3 pm (as I told her we didn't have a phone). No one there to meet us, a neighbour loaned us her phone as we were all stranded outside in the heat with our luggage (6 adults and 2 children). We were then given a code to to get into the building and had to drag all our luggage up steep stairs. There was no arranged accommodation for the children in the way of beds or pillows made up for them. We then rang the same person who said she would be there at 4.15 pm as I said we weren't staying - she wanted to stay and talk to us which we did and they offered an air mattress which I don't believe there would have been any room to put it, added to which the stairs were dangerous, particularly for the two year old. We didn't like the area. The living/kitchen area is small and a tiny table with three chairs for eating. After that we had to go looking for alternative accommodation which was extremely stressful. I hope no one else is ever subjected to this same experience.

Owner's Response: I find it a waste of time responding to this frivolous review due to the fact that the comments made by the traveler are totally untrue. The record speaks for itself, 33 reviews from previous VRBO guests, of which 15 reviews are 5 star and 14 are 4 star rating.

Everything clean & convenient

My family of 7 traveled to Hawaii and stayed here for 2 nights. Other than food, everything else is provided. The unit was clean, the internet work well, Suzanne helped out with the towels. Very comfortable stay.

Home comforts with space

  • 4 of 5

Many thanks to Jennifer,Mario,Sueanne, on behalf of my family thank you for your Hospitalty . We went to the Big Island for a family wedding but had 3 days in Honolulu , which after the long flights from New Zealand and Australia found our accommodation just what we wanted. Somewhere clean and comfortable to sleep.somewhere to park(free) somewhere to cook. Plus meet one of the neighbours great guy , a carver and bonsai grower. We found location handy to get to, the neighbourhood was of an older boxed-in houses/units but really nice helpful people. Stairs up to condo a bit of a pain when you have heavy suitcases but you only do it once so all ok.(we shouldn't buy so much )

Once again many thanks From the Kiwis

Susanne was great, explained all amenities in the house, also gave us tips on eating out and what to do in Hawaii. House suited 6 adults, all cooking items available. House easy to find and accessible to highways and waikki beach.
