Twu took us on a beautiful hike to a waterfall and had a great knowledge of the area, he also set us up with transportation to and from the airport for a small fee. The location is right by the beach and close to pick up spots for tours. This airbnb made this trip that much better!

Stayed at Chin and Twus condo in waikiki. The apartment is exactly as described, Plenty of room and close or everything. Youre one block away from the beach just behind the dukes statue and shopping. Twu was also great full enough to take me on hikes so if you get a chance make sure you take him up on his offer!! Definitely will stay again

We enjoyed our stay at Chin's place. It was a block away to the main street of Kalakaua Avenue. The air-conditioning was a great relief to the blistering heat. The kitchen is basic with no teas or coffee provided but the room itself was spacious. It was good value for money and Chin was helpful and available to assist where required.
