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.

Host makes feel welcome, the description was accurate and the neighborhood was as it was described.
We had the best time staying at Norman and Julie's place. It was in a fantastic location and the complex was not huge so I could always get a cabana by the pool. Norman and Julie were very accommodating with our early arrival and gave use useful tips about cab charges etc. Unit had everything a family needed and added touches like getting us some essentials as we checked in. We will be back. Thank you.
Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. We were happy to accommodate your early check in and were glad you were satisfied with our referral to Star Taxi. I agree that the rate is great and the service is convenient and efficient.
Hope to see you again.
The location is great in Waikiki, you can easily walk to various parts of the beach, restaurants, shops, the zoo and can catch the bus. There is city noise like buses and emergency vehicles if you are used to living in a quiet place but, it's a city! Car rental places are a block or so away if you want to get out of town. The apartment has beach chairs, umbrellas, a cooler, boogie board, beach towels, cooking stuff. The hotel is nice too, they'll hold your room key so you don't have to take any personal items down to the beach! Very comfy beds.
We have just had a fabulous week staying in Norman and Julie's apartment. They were very kind and helpful hosts and the apartment is very comfortable. We were a party of husband and wife and our 2 young adult boys. We slept very well as the beds are extremely comfortable. The unit has all the equipment needed for a short stay, including beach towels and a very useful basket to take to the beach. The Bamboo Waikiki is in a fantastic location, close to everything - a very short walk to the beach, Food Pantry supermarket, ABC stores, bus stop just across the road on Kuhio. Also great coffee from the coffee shop in the Hyatt Regency just around the corner, which is also where Budget rental cars, from whom we hired a car, are located. The Bamboo is a real gem - friendly staff, complimentary iced tea and lemon water in the lobby (very welcome when you come back from a hot day out). The pool area is a tropical oasis in the middle of a built up area, beautifully maintained and the "Lovin Oven" restaurant in the pool area has the best pizzas, a great dinner when you are tired after a long day out - just remember to make a reservation earlier in the day. We would definitely stay here again.

I came to Hawaii to teach at the University of Hawaii and have been handling rentals for over 30 years. I enjoy meeting and greeting new guests and helping them have an enjoyable vacation in Hawaii.
