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.
Location was very convenient for our purposes--beach, food, and shopping. Awesome views from the lanai--the beach/horizon one direction and Diamond Head the other. Kitchenette and bathroom were smaller than expected, but the room itself was a good size for two people. Francisco made check-in easy and was hands-off during our stay.
Perfect apartment for a stay in Honolulu, really close to Waikiki beach with views from the balcony. The whole experience was great as the host was quick to answer any questions and the apartment had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.
The apartment was small (like a studio), but the location and view could not have been better. It was an excellent place to explore Honolulu from. Wishing I was back on that balcony right now instead of in cold Sydney!
The room was fantastic and perfectly suited our needs. Rooftop access, in-building laundry, and Teddy's for food (next to the lobby downstairs) were also big pluses. LOVED this part of Waikiki too - nearby all of the bar & restaurant activity but right on the edge of it if you want to sneak out and explore. Francisco was very responsive, coordinating check in/ check out and also just shooting us a message during the week to see if we needed anything. Would definitely recommend this place to others/ return in the future.
The location of the apartment is great! You stay close to all the attractions and restaurants in Waikiki and you have direct view on Diamond head. We enjoyed the Lanai watching the surfers at the beach down the street. The place was very clean and Francisco responded always very fast and ensured that we have everything we need. Checking in and checking out was very easy. Thanks for letting us stay at your place! We higly recommend this apartment,
I recently used Francisco's apartment for my holiday and would definitely recommend and use it again if i come back to Hawaii. It was modern and had all of the essentials which you wouldn't have access to in a hotel. The view from the balcony was spectacular! Thank you so much for letting us stay!
We stayed on Oahu for two nights and the apartment was perfectly located to discover Waikiki beach and take some surfing lessons. Furthermore it has lots of beach equipment available which is awesome - you can go boogy boarding right across the street! The apartment itself is clean, comfortable and has everything you need. The amazing views from the Lanai are just stunning as you see the beach, the ocean, the diamond head and the zoo. Check-in and check-out was quick and easy as everything was perfectly prepared. We would recommend this place for anybody visiting Waikiki beach.
