About This Listing
This is a private resident and not part of the hotel. My Waikiki one bedroom penthouse is more than 40-floors above Honolulu with a wide 180 degree view, that overlooks some of the ocean coastline/mountain, and every structure within an eighth-mile.
This room has:
Two full-size beds,
A wall mounted 55 inch HDTV.
A closet with hangers,
A nightstand/with lamp.
A tall drawer for clothing in the closet.
Iron and ironing board,
The kitchen is modern, comfortably designed and is stocked with pots and pans, basic ingredients (rice, oil, etc…), spices, and utensils, all of which you are free to use.
The living room is large and fully furnished with one regular sofa, one sleeper sofa (pull-out bed), and a 42-inch LCD TV. There is also a full-side air mattress and a twin size mattress available if you need it for additional guest. There is a washer/dryer outside in the passageway of your door. There is also a laundry room is located on the 5th floor of the building (washer/dryer $1.50 each).
Both the living room and the dining room have a beautiful view of the mountains, Waikiki, and Downtown. The living room has a separate thermostat so the AC in the living room can be regulated separately from the AC in the bedroom. All the windows in the unit open, so you can take in the cool Hawaiian breeze that easily flows through a corner condo perched so high above the city (“so high above reality,” as former resident here once said).
A large recreation deck with grills and picnic tables for guest use gives you plenty of room to host outdoor gatherings. The building has a pool for resident and guest use.
The building is also a hotel, so telling any taxi driver or shuttle driver the hotel name will always have them knowing where to go.

Wonderful experience. Everything was top of the line, and I would highly recommend to anyone. Thomas and his son great people. And compared to other airbnb spots and hotels, this place is WELL worth it.
The stay here was great! Great view and very close to Waikiki. No need to rentacar unless you are traveling to north shore. Parking is bad at Waikiki.
We cooked our own breakfast. Everything is there in the kitchen.
The view is absolutely breathtaking.
The place is very nice. However the lobby and the entrance to this amazing condo is not the most appealing.
Thomas was very welcoming and was always there when you need him. There was a time when we got locked out and he came out and saved us right away.
I can't get over the view !

About the Host, Thomas
I first joined the U S Coast Guard in 1975 and after 20 years of search & rescue, and maritime law enforcement on the high seas, I retired in 1995. Following my retirement I attended Hawaii Pacific University for 3 years majoring in the field of Marine Biology. I then moved to Japan in 1999 and started teaching English for a private Japanese company. During my stay in Japan I got married to a Japanese lady and had a son (Kenneth). I applied for a position to work as a child care provider at Yokota U. S. Air Force Base in Japan, which I enjoyed very much for 4 years. As strangely as it sounds I was only married for 18 months and then divorce, I became a single parent living in Japan taking care of my 10 month old son. Not having any contact with my ex-wife, when my son turned 3 years old we moved to Hawaii in 2006. Now at the age of 60, I am a male single parent with a 11 year old son, enjoying every moment with him. Kenneth and I enjoy living in Waikiki and going to the beach, weekend BBQ's, and doing other fun activities.
