Overall, our stay was fine here. The view was beautiful and amazing. It's quite a shame we couldn't stay to watch the Friday night fireworks from this place. It would have ended the vacation on a lovely note.
Judy was responsive. There was a bit of a mix-up regarding check-in. Like most AirBnB hosts, I thought we would be greeted by Judy but you will actually be provided instructions over email on how to access the apartment. You will not meet Judy in person. I didn't receive the email so I recommend confirming with Judy that you've received it prior to your arrival.
-Convenient and close to mostly everything in Waikiki. We were able to walk to certain places on foot.
-Air Conditioning--who doesn't love that in July?
-Free Parking-Heck yes!
-Elevators were working perfectly fine while we were there and offered some lovely mountain views.
-Location - Smack dab in the middle of Waikiki which provided easy access to freeways.
Cleanliness-The place was clean overall. However, there was still the weird smell that came from the shower when you turn on the water. It smelled pretty strong-like formaldehyde.
The cleaning lady poured some Drano down the shower drain that day,
and she failed to clear it with some running water right after.
This was what you were smelling.
We've addressed the issue of other drain odor a couple months ago by having
a plumber snake it. She was trying to "stay on top of it" by using a chemical, maybe it was unnecessary.
Very sorry if smell of drano lingered ! We will avoid it in the future.
Previous reviews are correct, this place is exactly how it looks in the pictures. Very clean, amazing view and spacious. I'd book again, for sure! This place is in a very convenient location. Close to a lot of food, shopping and the beach. Wendy is very responsive!!

Wir hatten leider keine gute Erfahrung mit diesem Apartement aus folgenden Gründen:
Die ersten 3 Wochen hatten wir nur kaltes bis lauwarmes Wasser, auch in der Dusche!
Alle Pfannen waren total zerkratzt, wir mussten neue kaufen!
Es gab 2 Lifte. Während 5 Wochen funktionierte meistens nur 1 Lift was zu sehr langen Wartezeiten geführt hat. Ausserdem blieben wir und andere Leute aus dem Hochhaus im Lift stecken. Einmal mussten wir sogar vom 35. Stock hinunterlaufen!
Am ersten Tag mussten wir zwei Stunden in der Lobby warten da beide Lifte nicht gingen und wir nicht mit unserem Gepäck in den 35. Stock hoch laufen wollten
Am ersten Tag mussten wir das Apartement selber reinigen weil es so dreckig war. Es wurde vor unserem Einzug gereiningt, was wir kaum glauben konnten. Sie wollte uns erst 2 Tage später eine Putzfrau vorbei schicken.
Nach der Benutzung der Dusche roch es sehr streng!! Der Wc-Rand und die Dusche haben wir nicht mal nach der Reinigung sauber gebracht.
Gut gefallen hat uns die schöne Aussicht!
Zusammengefasst würden wir das Apartement nicht weiterentfehlen!
The condo was exactly as described and pictured. We had a very nice stay. The views were amazing and the location is great. We never met Wendy but she was very responsive and came and fixed a small issue very quickly. The only drawback of the unit has nothing to do with the host. When it is windy one elevator is shut down. It is a little inconvenient but not a big deal. Longest we waited was 10-15 minutes. Would highly recommend this unit!
Thank you for nice review. Just wanted to note that we had a major storm,
rain & high winds. It was on the local News that most buildings in Waikiki were doing elevator shut-downs for safety. This weather was unfortunate, and caused
inconvenience to visitors staying at many buildings in Honolulu area.
February is known for this, we have calm tradewinds rest of the year.
The reservation was canceled 154 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This studio is exactly as it is described, fully equiped kitchen, comfortable bed, plenty of storage room, and amazing ocean views. The building is a little bit outdated, elevators are old and slow, and there was an odor issue coming from the shower, which was very uncomfortable and affected the whole studio.
Other than that, we had a pleasant time in this studio.
