Interaction with Guests
I'm not present on property but live nearby. I generally just communicate with them through Airbnb website.
You right across street from small pier, ocean, and zoo. Kapiolani Park and aquarium are a few minutes walk (under 5) minutes.
Parking info. Bldg parking $17 a day, call Waikiki Grand Hotel reserve a spot. You can park for free around Kapiolani park which is about a 5 minute walk- Paki street side of park and Monsarrat St. Kapiolani Park has free metered parking from 6pm-10am and Sundays. Across the street parking at the zoo cost $1 an hour, this can be cheap since you only pay for what you need.
If you choose not to rent a car, there are multiple bus routes just steps away. I recommend only renting car on days you plan to go North Shore. Everything else is walking distance or easily accessible by bus which is one of the best systems in US.
No Smoking permitted on premise.
Studio was exactly as described. Close to the beach, restaurants and shopping in Waikiki, good parking possibilities and a very nice view from the balcony.
We especially liked the coffee machine and having our morning coffee on the lanai. There are also beach amenities provided.
Check-in is flexible by door code.
Although I never met Francisco, the lanai was clean, organized, and in an awesome location. There were plenty of amenities to make us feel comfortable, and I especially appreciated the coffee maker/coffee. The small kitchenette was useful, and the AC / fans worked very well. We used the building laundry machines, and they worked well. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend staying at Francisco's place... oh yeah, and the view is INCREDIBLE.
The location if the airbnb was great. Although we never met our hosts, communication was no problem. Very nice airbnb with lots of privacy.
The room is exactly as pictured, unexpected extras were the coffee machine with plenty of pods which my husband really made use of, really good size fridge, plenty of bench space, nice firm bed but best of all is the balcony, the view is fantastic of the beach, diamond head and the flamingoes in the zoo, we sat out there as much as possible in the early morning, during the day when we came back to the room, in the evenings and sometimes in the middle of the night. The outside chairs are extremely comfy. The sun comes in beautifully of a day onto the balcony so great for sunning oneself as well. There was shampoo, conditioner, body cream, sunscreen, sunburn cream, plenty of tourist brochures and lots of towels. No electric jug but I used the microwave for heating water to make my cups of green tea. I can highly recommend this rental, you get what you see and more - and just for the balcony alone it is well worth the $$.
Property was exactly as presented by the pictures. Great views of both Diamond Head and the beach. Very convenient access to beach, shopping and Resturants.
Perfect place and amazing view, waikiki beach is so close and easier for parking here! We will go back and choose this place again! Thank you, Francisco!
The studio was accurately described and clean. We really enjoyed the location; close to the beach, shops, but not too congested. Thanks for having us!

Francisco and Leah. Franco and I have lived and worked in Hawaii for the past several years. We just recently had our first child and love parenting. We are very involved in the paddling community and love our Hawaii lifestyle. We have been Airbnb hosts for the past 2 years, renting out one of our condo rooms. We recently bought and remodeled a great studio in the Waikiki Grand which we are now listing on Airbnb. We love meeting new people and truly enjoy hosting!
