Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

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.

Awesome location right across from the beach and many shop centers

  • 4 of 5

Stellar views from the Lanai !! Diamond Head, The Zoo && the beach. We loved our vacation! Our room was just perfect which we were hardly in since we we're in Hawaii exploring !

Chairs and boogie boards came in handy. Parking for free on the other side of the Zoo was a plus as well. Room was well put and clean ... Just wish the blankets and pillows were a little cleaner.

Stellar little getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 days in this studio and enjoyed every minute. The views of Diamond Head and the beach are stunning for the sun deck. There is a club 2 floors below, but we got used to it after the first night, just clicked on the AC and fan to mask the music (but it was good music). The location was ideal, many great restaurants near by (must visit Tiki's and sit in the dining area) and easy access to the beach with great beach accessories provided by Julia. The shower has great water pressure and the bed was soft & comfortable. If (when) we come back to Waikiki, I will be contacting Julia! Thank you for a wonderful 15th wedding anniversary trip!

Very cute Apartment with everything we needed!

  • 4 of 5

On arrival we hadn't yet received any emails from Julia advising how to get into the apartment, so we spent about an hour trying to call her in the Hotel foyer. Once we finally got up to the apartment, we noticed it was a perfect place for me and my best friend. The bed was extremely comfortable, pillows could be a little softer but that's a small issue. During our stay we quickly realised we had everything we could possibly need to cook meals. the Kitchen was well equipped. we also noticed if you had the Aircon on while showering you got very little hot water. as stated a few times below, the room was rather noisy being on a main street. We didn't hear the bar very much but more the traffic and people outside. Perfect location for Diamond head, the Beach and the supermarket. ABC stores was very close by which was perfect for any drinks, milk and anything else we needed. Wifi was great, however it dropped out a few times. but nothing too worry about. TV was great, and so was eating dinner on the deck. we noticed a glass panel missing out of the window, probably why it was a little loud, and also the curtain was ripped but didn't hinder the use of the curtains. Great place to call home for a week! and the foyer staff where very lovely. highly recommend getting a pedicure downstairs as well. and the diner is very yummy. Laundry was also easy and quick to use. thanks for your apartment Julia. !

Nice view but AC ventilation problems

  • 3 of 5

This is a SMALL HOTEL room. It is located across the street from the Honolulu Zoo.

Pros: nice balcony view and close to beach. Great burger place downstairs

Cons: Problems with AC and cable. Spent the whole stay with a broken window slot which the AC air escaped from daily. Owner NEVER fixed it. Annoyed that I spent a mandatory insurance fee for the property at time of the booking. I should've just booked through the Waikiki grand hotel instead.

Owner's Response: I called someone immediately to get the AC checked out and fix the cable. AC was cleaned and cable fixed. Once we found out that panel is missing, I offered guest to refund the remaining stay so that she may book a different room, as these panels cannot be replaced right away, they have to be ordered. Guest decided to stay.

Awesome location, great facilities!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect, close enough to the action but far away enough to not hear the buzz.

We found the facilities to be great, had everything we could need for a 4 night stay. We ate out for our meals but was handy to have kitchen facilities if need be. Awesome view.

Bed was very comfy. Great value for money! Thanks heaps Julia.
