Thank you for choosing The Plumeria as your lodging choice in Honolulu.
It was a very nice stay at The Plumeria. I highly recomend it for people looking for and affordable alternative. The neighborhood is centrally located in Honolulu. Close to Ala Moana, Downtown, Waikiki, an Manoa.
The room is basically tidy and clean. Nice environment. Things are well organised and managed.
I really enjoyed the Plumeria, the management was welcoming and took care of any concerns the same day. The people I shared an apartment with were very pleasant. It's about a mile walk to the beach, but very convenient in the middle of everything. A lot of options for food and bars. I liked being away from the tourist filled Waikiki. If you want a more "local" place to stay this is it. The neighborhood is safe to walk around at night. I never felt uncomfortable at a bus stop. If you are ok with sharing the common areas with others I would highly recommend this place over a hotel, because you actually get a full kitchen with pots and pans and everything for a fraction of the price. They also host a good size bbq every Saturday and it's free, I thought that was awesome.
Convenient location. Close to the freeway, bus stops, shopping, and restaurants. Accessible to more touristy areas such as Ala Moana and Waikiki. Got along with other tenants with no problem and the listing description was accurate. The only con was that the sink area was usually full with used pots, pans, and dishes. But other than that, I am glad to have stayed at this apartment!
Great place , cheep shared kitchen and bathroom . Stayed for 3 weeks . People that stayed when I was here were friendly . I had no problems.
I've stayed at Richards hostel for four weeks and I've seen both a single and a double room. The room I was first placed in did not exactly match the one which was advertised here on Airbnb, but that was not problem for me, since both rooms were comparable.
When I arrived my personla room was clean and everything was in order. However the bathroom and kitchen area was in a little disorder. However, since I shared the apartment with two further parties, this was not solely Richards fault. Plus my standards might be quite sophisticated. In the beginning, the kitchen did not provide sufficient flatfare for all parties, but upon my request, Richard solved this issue in a timely manner.
There could have been more cleaning in these areas as well.
However, Richard made great efforts to solve everything once you contacted him (!) about it.
The Ala Moana Beach Park is about 10-15 minutes on foot from Richard's place. This beach is less crowded than Waikiki Beach and therefore a nice alternative. From my experience there were also more turtles on Ala Moana Beach Park. (I saw 2 at this one and none at Waikiki). From there you'll walk another 10 Minutes to Waikiki Beach.
Richard's place also has a great infrastructure, as there is a Safeways on one- and an 7/11 on the other corner of the street. Furthermore, there is a laundry service right next to the 7/11.
The major Buslines also have their stops right next to Richards place, thus it's easy to get arround.
Concluding I would definitely consider to stay at this place again.
Feel free to contact me about further recommendations.

My name is Richard Stancliff. I have served as host and manager at The Plumeria since April, 2011. I previously vacationed in Hawaii and loved it so much I now spend a good part of the year in Honolulu. At age 68, I'm semi-retired and find that this lifestyle fits very well. Some work in the mornings and early afternoons, then the beach and perhaps Waikiki. Does it get any better than this?
