The Space

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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The best place about Chin and Twu's condo is location. Close to the beach, restaurants and a ton of ABC stores. Easy access to The Bus which we took everywhere, no car needed except if you are planning to go to the North shore.
    Accommodations are simple, a bed, a place to have breakfast, a place to shower. The air conditioner was great at night specially because of the street noise.
    We enjoyed our stay here.

  • Had a delightful 3-night stay while on a business trip and will definitely check availability with Chin and Twu for my next voyage to Waikiki. I really enjoyed how close I was to the beach, the building security, fast internet, and the comfy bed. The new bamboo floors were also a plus for a little morning yoga before breakfast on the patio. Great communication with the hosts throughout. I recommend!

  • I never met the owner but they seemed nice. However the place is somewhat shabby and the current photos don't really show its true condition. There is no second refrigerator. The previous occupant broke the coffee maker but instead of having a new one there at 2pm, it wasn't delivered until the next dat. Although its common in Hawaii there were cockroaches at night. But the location is great and its cheap. It is very quiet with the windows closed and the ac on.

  • It was a very nice to stay in the condo. Unfortunately we came one day later...
    It is very close to the beach and restaurants. I recommend this place to anybody.

  • Thank you Twu for the warm welcome when we come to the place! The communication was easy and not complicated. We had a great time at your apartment! The place was clean and there was everything we needed! Perfect location to get to the beach and to all the fun places around Waikiki! Next time at Honolulu i'll loved to stay at your place again!

  • Great location and great price! What more can you ask for?
    We really enjoyed our stay; Twu was very accommodating he offered donation hikes, free to use snorkel gear, boogie boards, and beach mats. We took full advantage of both balconies and loved being so close to Waikiki. All and all we had a wonderful relaxing vacation and would recommend to close friends.

  • This apartment is on the corner of the building and gets the most beautiful breezes! The view is facing the street and the mountains, which is more interesting than looking at the beach. At least I think so. The apartment is quite clean and has everything you might need, even a couple of boogie boards. The location is absolutely perfect.

  • Excellent location, the area more towards the Hilton side is not as nice/relaxed I thought. Enjoyed a hike with Twu, even though it gave me sore legs for 2 days;-) and dinner at Lulu's and Rufage natural foods just next door. The apartment is very convenient if you are planning to be outdoors most of the time (which I was) and has everything u need. I did not use the kitchen except for the fridge I have to say. The walk up to diamond head is a must and easily doable from the apartment location. Can certainly recommend staying here which I will do again for sure whenever I get the chance to visit Waikiki again! Thanks, Twu and Chin!

  • Twu was a wonderful host! The check in/out process was easy and his communication ahead of time was very appreciated. If you are looking for an affordable place in a great location - you won't be disappointed. Twu even offered to take us on a a few hikes but we weren't able to find time during our stay.

  • Amazing deal, convenient location – ultimately a great place to crash after full days of hiking, swimming and exploring Oahu. It was the was the perfect amount of space for two low-mainteneance individuals and there are some sounds from the busy street outside, but that comes with being so close to it all. We chose not to park in the expensive building garage, so we had a little bit of a walk to cheaper parking, but we didn't mind since duh, Hawaii. :)

    Twu was down to earth and very helpful – he loaned us some snorkeling gear and boogie board, also recommended some places to eat.
