Aloha and Welcome to the beautiful island of Oahu.
This is a private studio located in the heart of Waikiki in a building one block away from the beach. The building has different sizes of rooms and ours has one of the biggest in size. Most unit does not come with a balcony but ours come with not one but two balconies! This unit is big compared to your regular size hotel room.
We own one of the units in this building and is renting it out privately, that's why we can offer you the lowest price! It has a QUEEN size bed, 39" flat screen TV, A/C unit, mini kitchen, fridge and sofa. We provide clean towels, beach towels and linens. Upon request, we can also provide snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and etc. Our room is equipped with Wi-Fi.
We can also provide a hiking tour but there will be a donation and you can always email us for more information about which hike you are interested in, whether a waterfall hike, crater, ridges, forest, coastlines etc. Because we love to hike! We have great reviews about our hospitality.
The unit is located in the heart of Waikiki. It is only 1 block to the beach and walking distance to all the restaurants, shops. There is a grocery store only 3 minutes walk away. Close to bus stops that can take you to all the destinations you want to go, whether you want to hike Diamond Head, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay or visit the historic Pearl Harbor.
Before inquiry, please feel free to look at the calendar for availability.
Mahalo and hope to see you soon!
This is a nice location and very convenience to everything in Waikiki. Washers and dryers are available in the same building. There are several affordable restaurants nearby. Our favorite one was a Korean fast food calls "Me BBQ". However parking was on the high side, $20/day.
This little studio is perfect if your main priority is being close to the beach. However, if you are a light sleeper, it is not for you, as being that close to the beach involves a lot of traffic on the street below all night long, including beeping buses and the general sounds of a city. Also, the kitchen facilities are quite limited (there is a microwave and small fridge and a portable burner for making stuff in pots and pans, which I did not use) so if you were envisioning using a whole stovetop or the oven, well, there isn't one. Also (as in any tropical enviornment or any apartment building, especially an apartment building in the tropics) there were a few roaches here and there. I didn't put anything dirty in the trash and kept the dishes done so I saw maybe five total in the five days I was there. Not a big deal and again totally expected for the locale.
I know it sounds like a bad review, but it isn't. This place met my needs, it was the right price, and you need to acknowledge that things are not going to be Totally Amazing on a budget. I was happy overall!
The location and facilities of the appartment are to
highlight. The owners facilitate the check-in and check-out for the renter. Mahalo.
It was a nice and clean place near the beach. Thank you to the renters. I would definitely stay here again.
Chu was very accommodating and it worked out well or us. The street was a little noisy at night, but other ythan that it was perfect.
We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was clean, well supplied with kitchen utensils/plates/etc, and also had extra beach towels as well as snorkeling gear that came in really handy when we went out swimming! The apartment was also in a great location, next to several major bus lines, lots of tasty restaurants, and really was just 2 blocks from the beach! Twu was a great host, he contacted me the day of arrival to check-in and make sure everything was ok, and was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. He also took us on a beautiful sunrise hike to koko head arch, which was definitely something off the beaten track and quite an experience. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and also took us to several look-out points for some amazing views. We'll definitely be back in the future!
Staying at Twu's was like staying at home. The bed was comfortable, the space was clean, and everything that we needed was provided. We felt safe and confident in the building and the condo. Twu went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We also got to take one of his legendary hikes with him. We took a waterfall hike and by far it was the best adventure we had on our vacation. The photos we took were spectacular, and we felt like really got to see something not every tourist would get to see. Twu was also generous enough to lend us some snorkeling gear and we even got to snorkel with a turtle. We had a wonderful time there, and we would definitely recommend staying with Twu. If we get the chance to return to Hawaii, we'll definitely be contacting our new friend!
It was perfect!! Many man thanks, I will definitely come back :-)
The condo was a great find! Felt like a home away from home. Had everything we needed. Absolutely recommended if you want to get away from the tourist vibe of staying at a resort hotel. Twu was a great host - lent us a mobile phone and picked us up and dropped us off at the airport too. Unfortunately we couldn't go on a hike with him, but perhaps next time. Mahalo for everything :) The building manager Richard was also a great source of information re where to go, what bus etc.
Great deal in the area
