About Julia Kelly

I live close by with my family. I love our beautiful island and it's Aloha spirit. We also enjoy traveling and we almost always choose to stay at vacation rentals around the world. The connections and local experiences we make by staying in privatly owned homes as opposed to hotels make our trips even more special.

Julia Kelly purchased this studio in 2011

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!

Perfect oasis in the craziness of Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

The condo is a room in a lovely hotel. The lanai has beautiful views over the park and zoo towards Diamond Head. Having stayed elsewhere on the island and on Maui we really appreciated the escape from all the built up hotels further along the beach. It's an easy walk to beach, into Waikiki & Diamond Head. The bus stop is nearby if you're catching da bus.

The room is bright, airy and modern with absolutely everything you could possibly need. It even had a clothes airer which we used several times after getting caught in a downpour! Staying at Julia's gave us a very different perspective on the area,we'd certainly recommend it without hesitation. We're really hoping to be able to come back one day and would very happily stay here again.

Mahalo!

Happy honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

The room was small but cozy. The views were spectacular! Close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and attractions. Night club was a bit noisy at times and smokers smoke drifted in thru the AC occasionally but the room itself was great. Julia was quick to respond with a concern we called about. Very nice stay.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay at Julia's place, great location!!

Had a few hiccups but Julia was accessible and we got them sorted out quickly . The place was modern and clean, we only stayed in the room at night so we didn't need anything bigger.

The only down side is that it is noisy with the bar being underneath and the trucks and buses that park on the road . I did buy earplugs and it helped.

Location was perfect I didn't want to be right in the middle of the strip and sitting on the deck drinking my coffee while watching the sun rise over diamond head was amazing .

All in all I would rent here again if I was to come back to Waikiki .

Thanks for a memorable holiday !!

Very good

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location very close to the beach.

Waikiki is very noisy and there's a club in the second floor but other than that the room was pleasant with all the amenities necessary.

Would stay there again.

Very nice

Nice condo, in a nice part of Waikiki where the crowds are not as large. Easy walking distance to a lot of sights. Spent two days here and never used a vehicle to drive anywhere.
