Dear Julia,

We really enjoyed your condo. Tracy wanted me to tell you that she really appreciated all the little touches you put in to make it like a home. She really liked your wine glasses. Thanks again for everything!

Wonderful Waikiki vacation..... close to anything you could need, and right by the beach,!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Julia's condo, and had a great time. Everything you could possibly need was right there !! (Kitchen supplies , beach chairs, etc.) I have stayed in Waikiki before, and her condo is located on the same block as Starbucks, Subway, Lulu's( my favorite...the best coconut shrimp), Teddys Burgers(the best coffee milkshakes), and 2 ABC stores. I love that I could just walk across the street and be at the beach. I ate breakfast, and had my coffee out on the lanai overlooking the Honolulu Zoo, with a beautiful view of Diamond Head!!.

Even though I didn't actually meet Julia...she was very pleasant via texts, and the fact that there was an access code instead of a key, made it very easy to come and go( with my arms full of beach supplies.)

I'm hoping all my next trips to Waikiki , I will be staying here... thanks Julia, for a wonderful vacation!!!!!..Regan Emery😘򖀊

Nice place close to beach.

  • 4 of 5

Nice little apartment close to the beach and easy access to Waikiki tourist areas. We really enjoyed our stay here. Only down side was the club 2 floors away. Loud music made for not a great sleep the first night. We cranked the AC fan the rest of the nights and it really drowned out all the noise. Overall very satisfied with our stay.

Fantastic Views - Central Location

  • 5 of 5

Julia's condo was perfect for the two of us. Although it was a small studio, it had everything we needed from towels, dishes, wifi and a lanai equipped with beach chairs and boogie boards. It was immaculately clean and modern. The staff downstairs were friendly and willing to help at all times. The only thing we missed was an iron.. which gave me an excuse to purchase a travel steamer. Thank you so much Julia! We will definitely stay here again!! -Julz & Lachlan

Overall the suite was how it was presented on VRBO.

  • 4 of 5

The suite was very comfortable, updated and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets and towels in good condition. My only complaint is that the small closet was filled with the cleaning supplies including the vacuum. In general, there is very little space to unpack and put clothes away because the closet is undersized and there isn't a full size dresser. Having the table was nice but considering the size of the room a smaller round bistro table would allow for a larger dresser. The lighting is also inadequate as the bedside lamps are small desk lamps and there isn't any lighting at all on the side of the room where the table is. In summary I would have to say that the room and space is a good value for the money and if the mentioned concerns are addressed it would make any stay a little more comfortable.

Conveniently close, clean and easy.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very conveniently close to Waikiki beach, shopping, restaurants and bars. The room was nice and clean. Julie was easy to work with. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. The only negative was the noise from the street but the white noise from the air conditioner usually drowned it out. We slept pretty well for the most part. We would stay again.
