A Wonderful bright cheery room to rest between your Oahu Adventures. On the 9 the floor you are only one floor from the amazing views on the 10th floor sun deck. This room is the best kept secret on Airbnb!!!

The Space

***********"HAPPIEST SPACE ON EARTH"*************

Waikiki Grand space usually rents for $110 / day + 13.75% tax = $125.

UPDATE: New wall / window frame set / vertical blinds now totally soundproof / sunproof the roof for those that want to sleep in. New Air Conditioner & Faucet too!!! Soon new chairs.

I do have 5 spaces on Airbnb. 2 Waikiki Grand Hotel and 1 Waikiki Marina and One Oceanfront 2 bedroom Home (Kaneohe) and One Private Art Gallery / Theater 2 bedroom Home (Honolulu). Please scroll down bottom right and see all of them.

As you enter the lobby decorated with colorful Hawaiian flowers and spiritual Buddha statues, you feel excited as you enter the newly installed elevators (2) which are trimmed in beautiful Hawaiian wood. You are quickly transported on to the ninth floor. There you turn right and see unit #917, slowly open the door and feel a bright happiness come over you.

One floor away is a spacious sun deck with unobstructed million dollar views of world famous Diamond Head, the horizon, the best part of Waikiki beach, the many greens & blues of the ocean. Sailboats, sun worshipers, and a wonderful blue sky surround you and welcome you to your new home.

The Space is a stone's throw away (less than 1/3 of a block) from the beach. NOTE: Kuhio Avenue & Ala Wai Blvd are quite a walk from the beach. Please click on "Street View" and compare with street views of other Airbnb properties.

I just purchased this property and it will come with a new refrigerator, new microwave oven, full extra plush "Sealy Posturpedic" bed, 6' x 3' large mirrored wall, air conditioner, new 32″ flat screen television, utensils, plates, cups, clean linens, beautiful pedestal sink (double duty) and plenty of Positive Energy !!!

The usual price is $109 a day. Reserved parking available for $15 /day or park next door at the zoo for $1/hour.

SMILE!!!: This is one of the LOWEST PRICED "PRIVATE SPACE" (not shared) in Waikiki on Airbnb. for two. The Entire condominium is yours and yours alone. Beware Airbnb hosts that have a lower advertised price but charge 13.9 % tax, extra charge for 2nd person and cleaning fees. The Space includes all taxes, parking at $15/ day, 2nd person is free and No cleaning fee, however I do require a $100 fully refundable security/cleaning deposit. PLEASE READ HOUSE RULES.

Hula's Bar & Grill (2nd floor) and Teddy's Bigger Burgers (Lobby area) located in building. ABC Store next door for all your sundries and everything you forgot to bring. Starbucks "On the Beach" (free Wifi) just a few steps away :) Zoo & Aquarium soooo close!!!

Laundry facilities in basement. 24 hr security.

IMPORTANT: I have 2 units and ONLY ONE PARKING SPACE available. Please reserve at time of booking. You may pay for parking when you get here. As a courtesy to other guests, Reservations for parking must be canceled one month before check in or you will be charged.

EARLY CHECK IN: is not available if a guest is checking out on the day of your arrival. Early check in fee is $30. Please do not enter/leave luggage in room before it is cleaned. Room needs to be accessed (reviewed) after departing guests vacate & luggage impedes cleaning process.

Please preview my new listing "PRIVATE ART GALLERY THEATER HOME" One of a kind art surround you & your own private aerialist dance troop for your private viewing. Giant 30 ft landscapes make you feel you are on the beach !!! $75,000 state of the art kitchen.

Airbnb will be the Facebk for Travelers :) Cool places, friends, & experiences !!!

Finally. This space is priced low / no cleaning charge because It is for exclusively for considerate travelers that will leave the space as close as they can to when they arrived by abiding to the HOUSE RULES.(please read) Thank you in advance!

The Neighborhood

Waikīkī (/waɪkiːˈkiː/; Hawaiian: [vɐiˈkiːˈkiː] or [wɐiˈkiːˈkiː]) is a beachfront neighborhood of Honolulu, on the south shore of the island of Oʻahu, in Hawaii, United States. Waikiki is best known for Waikīkī Beach, the white sand beach shoreline fronting the neighborhood.

Waikīkī is home to public places including Kapiʻolani Park, Fort de Russy Military Reservation, Kahanamoku Lagoon, Kūhiō Beach Park, and Ala Wai Harbor.

Getting around

The best way to get around is to walk and breathe the fresh ocean air and all that Waikiki has to offer. "The BUS" is available for longer treks. For the adventurous and to see as much as possible on Oahu I would suggest renting a car and taking one day tours of the neighbor islands.

  • Just returned from my first AirBnB experience. Kurt was a good host. I didn't have a need to contact him during the visit, but he was great with communication prior to the trip. The space was as described and pretty much what I expected. The location is at the very end of what I would consider the Waikiki strip and across from the zoo, giving it a less "resort-ish" type of feel, but as I am familiar with the neighborhood, it was of no surprise. Would recommend for someone who doesn't feel the need to stay at a posh hotel and prefers a great value.

    Response from Kurt:

    Thanks for the update I will take care of it immediately.
    I agree the space is located so that if you want people, shopping, restaurants & action... walk to the beach and turn right.
    If you want nature, park, green meditative space walk to the beach and turn left.
    If you want to go the best part of Waikiki Beach.... simply walk a few steps straight ahead...
    Hummmm... this sounds too good ... I think I should raise the price....NOT !!! JUST KIDDING :)

  • This place was perfect. You will be hard pressed to find a better deal, especially for the location.
    I highly recommend.

  • Monolocale a 50 metri dalla spiaggia di Kuhio a Waikiki, all'angolo con Kalakaua Avenue, di fronte allo zoo. Tranquillo e arredato con gusto, ha tutto cio' che e' necessario per il soggiorno. Molto tranquillo e silenzioso. Kalakaua Avenue e' la strada dello shopping e dei ristoranti e quindi tutto e' a portata di mano. La spiaggia e' splendida. Kurt e' un padrone di casa veramente fantastico. Di una gentilezza e di una correttezza uniche. Se siete con l'auto c'e' la possibilita' di posteggiare gratuitamene dietro lo zoo. C'e' inoltre una fermata dell'autobus proprio davanti all'edificio. Cosa dire di piu'? Sono stato piu' volte a Honolulu e posso dire che a un prezzo simile e' praticamente impossibile trovare qualcosa di paragonabile. Unica nota, non c'e' un vero e proprio angolo cottura, ma solo il frigorifero e il forno a microonde.

    Thank you Antonio for your friendship and great review!!!

  • As a fellow airbnb host (BEST LOCATION AND PRICE IN S.D.), I feel uniquely qualified to review Kurt's apartment, and I must say that I'm glad he's not in San Diego to give me any competition! You cannot beat the location, the studio was actually larger than I had expected, (you have room to dance if you feel like it, and you just might you'll be so happy there), and I LOVED the water pressure in the shower which was quick to remove any salt from my skin. It really felt like I was returning to my home each afternoon after a wonderful day exploring Waikiki, swimming, and shopping. Ono Seafood which is a short walk away, has the BEST poke in town, so I enjoyed taking mine to go, and then enjoyed eating it on the 10th floor deck with a million dollar view of the beach and Diamond Head. No other hotel could possibly offer a better view. Keep in mind that the bed, although extremely comfortable, would be a tight squeeze for a couple. I was quite happy to have it to myself, so there was no problem. I would highly recommend Kurt's Happiest Space for your visit to Waikiki, as you'd be hard pressed to find a better location and price! Thank you Kurt for making my birthday trip such a success. I hope to return again next year! Aloha, Filbert

  • Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt in Honolulu. Das Zimmer war schön und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Uns fehlte es an nichts. Kurt hat unsere Fragen immer sehr schnell beantwortet.
    Wir haben es genossen den Abend auf der 10. Etage ausklingen zu lassen.
    Das Zimmer befindet sich in einem ehemaligen Hotel, welches nur einen halben Block vom Strand entfernt ist. Geschäfte und Restaurants liegen quasi direkt nebenan. Wir würden das Zimmer jederzeit wieder buchen!!!

  • Enjoyed my stay greatly. Ideal location close to restaurants, beach and attractions. Kurt was really helpful. As this was my first time using Airbnb, I needed a bit of coaching.
    Great job!

  • Das Apartment liegt in zentraler Lage am Ende des Waikiki Beach, alles ist zu Fuß und mit Bus sehr gut erreichbar, ein Auto ist also nicht unbedingt notwendig.
    Das Zimmer selbst ist ausreichend und mit allen Dingen ausgestattet, die man so braucht. Das Bett ist ca. 120 cm breit, für Alleinreisende oder ein Pärchen geeignet. Kurt selbst habe ich nicht getroffen, er hat sich jedoch nach Anruf sofort gekümmert. Das Zimmer würde ich auf Grund seiner Lage und des Preisverhältnisses absolut empfehlen!!!!

    April 2014
  • Great place to stay for few days. In the center, everything near. Really appreciated the possibility to make our Hawaii vacation affordable.
    And the most important - great communication with Kurt!
    Thank you!

    April 2014
  • Great location for this small apartment. Futon bed was reasonably comfortable, and the once felt cozy. No complaints here given the proximity to the beach and low price!
