The amazing views and friendliness of this building make this place very special.

There is no parking. However there are a few options if you need parking. You can park for free around Kapiolani park which is about a 5 minute walk- Paki street side of park. Across the street parking at the zoo cost $1 an hour, this can be cheap since you only pay for what you need. You may be able to park in the hotel garage on a space available basis. You must call the hotel to inquire about a spot and reserve-ask hotel for current rate. Also, Kapiolani Park has free metered parking from 6pm-10am, lot's of locals park their cars here over night.

  • Francisco's place was amazing! The unit is small but the view is AMAZING! Our favorite place to have coffee was on the lanai with spectacular views of diamond head and the beach. It was just the two of us so the space was not an issue and the unit still had everything we needed: coffee, towels, boogie boards, sunscreen, and cooler! The location was great and we were able to walk to almost everything! Francisco have us some great advice on local places to go. Great stay!!!

    Thank you Susan. Before the place got busy I used to go to that Lanai a lot to enjoy the scene.

  • The apartment is correct and has great views. But the building is noisy (dogs, street).
    Otherwise it is very well located.

    Francisco can easily helpful.

  • The condo is located in a fairly busy area of Waikiki and the sounds from the street and the beach can become a little amplified even inside the condo. But if quiet is what you crave, then there are earplugs or Kauai, where you can sleep all day and night. Honolulu's Waikiki district is quite dynamic and lively, and unfortunately, the noise sometimes comes with it. The building is half a block up from Kala'kaua and it's very convenient to the beaches, shopping and bars.

  • Great apartment in an awesome location - with a beautiful view over diamond head crater, the beach and the mountains. You can also hear animals in the morning and sometimes see the elephants in the zoo. The flamingos are almost always out in their pond :)
    It's on the small side but is comfortable. Air con is good and the bathroom is nice. Only complaint is the lack of a proper wardrobe and for me personally, too many mirrors! Haha.

  • It was simple to make the reservation and effortless to get into the room. We didn't meet Francisco face to face but he was very helpful via text with any questions we had. The room is comfortable and has an amazing view of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach, plus you can see the flamingos at the zoo! Fantastic location. We had a wonderful time and were quite comfortable.

  • Francisco is very good with the communication, great location, only drawbacks are bathroom sink is kind of too small, and the air condition is kind of too noisy, but other than that, everything is fantastic.

  • This lanai is in a perfect location!! Excellent views of diamond head, zoo is just off the balcony. Walking distance to the shops on the beachfront nothing is too far really. At this end of Waikiki you will find local restaurants which are awesome

    The apartment is nice, contemporary looking throughout. Has all the necessities you need for a short comfortable stay.

    Francisco was very nice to deal with. Clear an thorough instructions and check in was a breeze. Hotel reception were also kind and polite.
