**** Please note: Prices have been reduced 20% as there will be construction going on Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm on the exterior of the building until about June 2014. Painting, spall repair, etc. Until further notice, the pool is closed during the renovation period (beach is a 1/2 block away so no worries there!)
The windows in my unit have already been replaced, with lovely soundproof windows.****

As much or as little as you like! Some guests I meet up with for a meal or drink, some I never get to meet in person as they prefer a more private trip or already have a packed itinerary. It's entirely up to you, so please do reach out if you would like to meet up!
There are multiple bus stops just minutes from my apt, so you don't have to worry about renting a car if you don't want to. If you do choose to rent a car (which I definitely recommend at least a day or two for trips to Kailua and North Shore!) you can find free street parking along Monsarrat Ave, and in the parking lot on the right of that road. Or, I can reserve parking in the building for you at $15/day.
Great location right next to the beach. Loved the interior decoration of the studio and the overall cleanliness. Communication from the host was also superb and Frances was great at suggesting how I could enhance my stay on Hawaii. Cold beer waiting in the fridge was just what I needed after long flight! Highly recommended.
Excellent location and beautiful place. Close to bus routes, restaurants, and conveniences. Frances was great with communication throughout the whole stay. Would definitely return!
Frances is a great host and her studo is a real gem! All the great things are already said. I would definitly recommend staying at her place and love to come back one day!
Frances is a well organised and responsive host. Had a short stop over in Honolulu and appreciated the tasteful space, the welcome beer in the fridge (thank you!) And the super location, went for a scenic run and swim with the ocean on her doorstep. Recommended.
It is a really nice appartment with a modern kitchen at an ideal location in Honolulu. For us a comfortable place to relax from the busy city. We very enjoyed to be so close to Waikiki with its wide range of restaurants and bars. Communication with Frances was very easy. She is a great host. The only disadvantage was the streetnoise in the early mornings, which was louder than we expected. After the window renovations, which are currently going on, we would come back any time!
Thank you Frances for this great stay!
There was building wide construction going, but otherwise it was a nice little apartment, just steps from the mad tourist crush of Waikiki Beach. Frances has turned a studio kitchenette at the Waikiki Grand Hotel into very pleasant beach digs. Be sure to check out Lanikai Beach (as Frances recommends).
Fran was a great host! Upon arrival there was a nice 6 pack of Aloha beer in the fridge! The studio was very clean and cozy. It is also an incredible location, just half a block from waikiki beach. I highly recommend this place for a single person or a couple. I hope to return to Hawaii in the near future!
This beachside studio was a great deal. Easy to find, awesome location and the studio itself was very well decorated. Frances is a great host and we recommend working with her anytime. The only downside was the street noise we could hear at night but we drowned it out with the AC fan. Overall great stay, thanks Frances!
Another great visit at France's beach condo. The space is very clean, well decorated and there are always some ice cold local brews in the fridge when I arrive. Looking forward to returning again next month! I highly recommend this place!
We loved Frances' place so much that we stayed here again! Great host, Great location - You can't go wrong here!
