Carmen and her groups are perfect guest! They patiently waited us at the airport because I was late when we picked them up, Jason showed them the apartment and outside areas. They were incredibly friendly and thoughtful and they really appreciated all the small help or information that we gave to them. We would definitely love them to stay our apartment again in the future!
Everything are great. Thanks for being a great host.
Dear Sonia and James,
We enjoyed our trip to Hawaii very much! Your house is very clean and comfortable to stay. You are very kind and friendly with great hospitality. If we go to Honolulu again, we will contact you.
Thank you very much!!

We were a group of five adults in Hawaii for the first time. James was very friendly, helpful and communicated quickly. Very convenient to get to Waikiki, Diamond Head, Kapahulu Road and the H1 from the house. Also very clean and quiet - we all slept really well - despite the density of the neighborhood. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The sofa bed was a bit soft for an adult. Parking was tight for a mid size car but manageable. Appreciated that the sink and vanity was outside the bathroom so that more than one person at a time could get ready in the morning. Price fit into our modest budget.
The experience of staying at Sonia and James duplex was so comfy! A relaxed environment, that accomdated four guests. We felt safe, secured, and set apart! Our hosts Sonia/James werr out of town but they didn't skip a beat by having their son and friend Greg taking care of our every need! We received top quality customer service that included a photograph picture of our group, update texts about current events around town, and a even a ride to the airport! I highly recommend Sonia/James very cute, clean, and cozy cul-de-sac hawaiian getaway spot! MAHALO!
James was an awesome host. He was present when we arrived and provided details about the rented home. The home was fully equipped and kept very clean. They even had all the extra amenities needed. The home is located very close to Waikiki and main interstates to get anywhere on the island. It is also close the airport. You can see Diamond Head from your patio. The host himself is very nice and friendly. I would recommend this home to everyone. It is a perfect 2 bedroom place for a few couples or a family! :)
This was our first experience booking a non-hotel room, and I've had a difficult time trying to describe it. I would lead off by saying that nothing was inaccurate about the listing. But while my experience wasn't bad, it also wasn't the amazing time that many of the previous reviewers seem to have enjoyed. We found the snorkel set filled with sand from a past occupant, so we did not use it. This was slightly annoying, but nothing major. But now I feel obligated to mention what others have not: bugs are commonplace in Hawaii, but I did not see any attempt at prevention. The door between the garage and the living space is not sealed in any way, giving bugs easy access. Close to a dozen cockroaches strolled in over the course of our 10 day trip. One of them had even found a way to be catapulted from the moving ceiling fan and hit me in the head while I was in bed - I wish I was making that up! Overall, if I were to compare this to a hotel, I would say it's of the 3 star variety. It's clean, dressed up well but does only the job it's intended to. Just a heads up, in case you're looking for more.
Thank you for letting us know about the situation and what you experienced. We really try to keep the place clean. it is our top priority to take all comments seriously. We took an action and now where in the process of taking care of the situation. We really appreciated your comments.
Aloha, I'm James & Sonia,
