Great condo in a great location at a great price! The air conditioner was a bit loud and inadequate and it was hot.

Everything according to plan , perfect location Unit clean and comfortable

Only problem the Hotel was upgrading the outside of the hotel .Hotel staff happy to help and most of the rental units on my floor people very engaging.

I spent 2 months and have rebooked again for a longer time.. I have no problem recommending this place as long as I am not booked for it.. Maurice Shea

First of all, I expected "the regular situation", to receive my room key when check in.But instead, I had to wait about an hour wondering in a robby and hallway unable to entering my room. I didn't hear anything from her after my final payment, but I did need a code or key to enter of course. This scared me a lot. Left several voice mails and finally she called back and gave me the code.

She told me someone was supposed to be there but no one was there. She could have emailed me in advance.

Place was nice, a minute walk from the nearest beach, a bit far from main streets though.

Room interior was cozy laid-back type, but black bed cover wasn't cheering me up so needed to find something else. Candle or something I don't know, didn't like the scent.

Kitchen was quite small and no oven, not for actual cooking if you are a home chef.

Someone was mentioning it's cleanness, I would say it's like staying at just vacuumed regular house. But this entire place is pet friendly so totally recommended for dog-lovers.

Also, this room profile is "smoking ok" but actually inhibited in this building.

FYI, don't ask any information at the desk, they are not related to this room, and even you ask nicely, they give you false informations.

Walk to beach barefoot

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time- walking barefoot to the beach, enjoying delicious burgers downstairs, across the street from the ZOO. Probably the best location in Waikiki. The host made us feel welcome- had a basket of fresh fruit and wine waiting for us. Affordable accommodation. The room is small, with a tiny bathroom / kitchen corner (only one shared sink for bathroom and kitchen), has a balcony. For our taste there were too many decorations in the room, more practical (less cluttered) setting would be better for us. Would be nice to have a vacuum cleaner in the room. Overall, would recommend to others. Mahalo!

A little sketchy...

  • 2 of 5

Let me start by saying this properties location is great... However, the level of cleanliness is not up to my standard. Rust all over tub drain, dirty and a preexisting ant and roach problem as spray was on kitchen counter. This is a very small space which is made smaller by so much decor.

We had a great experience with Cheryl until checkout when we were set to check out at 11am the next renter showed up at 9:50 am with the same code to access the room. When I notified Cheryl I never heard a response. Not even an apology. This was very awkward.

I would consider this location again but not this room.
