This was our 2nd visit to Waikiki and this time we chose to stay in this self contained apartment rather than a hotel on the main strip due to the lower cost.
Norman and Julie greeted us on arrival, which was much earlier than normal check-in time. They were very friendly and showed us around the property and gladly answered any questions we had.
The apartment is compact but ideal for a family of 4. Despite it's age, it is well maintained and clean. The kitchen and bathroom are well equipped. The location is great, only a few minutes walk from Waikiki beach. Kuhio avenue is well serviced with public transport, shops and restaurants. It is a noisy road at night, being a main thoroughfare for buses and local traffic.
A big thank you to Norman and Julie for their hospitality.
This was my second time to stay at Norman and Julianna's condo. They are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. I will definitely be staying here again when in HNL.
We stayed a five days in Norman's condo, and were very pleased. Norman and his wife were really nice, very helpful and welcoming. It was a perfect location - close to the beach and near all the "action ". What you see in the pictures is what you get. Nice and clean. Great kitchen space.
Nice little pool and Jacuzzi area.
You won't be disappointed!
The hosts were very communicative, professional, and on top of making us feel comfortable. They even got us chocolates with macademia nuts to welcome us!
The apartment was similar to the description, and the amenities were great - including the pizza place downstairs where they let you byo and enjoy the amazing pizza by the hotel pool. It is only two blocks away from Waikiki, making everything convenient especially if you are using public transportation or sticking around that neighborhood. They also had some stuff for the beach.
It was perfect for my family of 4 (e.g., large fridge) and we had a great time!
We 3 ladies were made to feel very welcome by Norman and his wife Julie. They met us there and showed us all aspects of the unit and hotel. We were very happy that Norman was able to accommodate out much earlier check in time in the morning.
Great value for money and close to the Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head and eating places. Buses at the door which we used and are cheap.
Condo is on the main road which makes it quite noisy and did not wish to use the balcony due to this. Police cars love their sirens in Hawaii. We would use again as anything closer to the beach is so pricey. Hotel pool was beautiful and quiet after a busy day out. Nice having a smaller hotel than many in the area. Beds very comfy.
Thanks for taking the time to write your review and thanks for your suggestion on keeping a list of attractions and experiences other guests have enjoyed. Appreciate the luau recommendation and we'll be sure to pass that on to our guests.
Thanks very much for your booking. Hope to see you again.
