Roger is a professional - he provided detailed info about the apartment and answered follow-up questions very quickly. The apartment was perfect for our needs - close to all Waikiki attractions, nice views, 2 bathrooms, well-maintained, laundry downstairs, secure.
This was our first time using Airbnb, and we were quite happy with the experience. However as this was our first time, we have no comparison with this property as compared to others. So our feedback is related to our single experience.
First, Roger was very easy to deal with, and replied to the few inquiries I had very promptly with good information.
The apartment itself was very clean, and the location was excellent. It was also a very good price - a similar suite in a hotel would have been significantly more expensive. The room was well stocked with dishes and most things we needed, and there were even some extras we were able to use at the beach - a chair and some boogie boards. We also left behind a mat and a small inner tube.
I would definitely be happy to stay here again!
I did not get a chance to meet my host. I spoke with him on the telephone months ago and he provided me the necessary information then and later at appropriate times.
Roger and his contact, Carol, were both very friendly, professional and accessible for any questions and help we needed before and during our stay. The location of this place is perfect, unit is very clean and having 2 bathrooms was awesome.
Had some trouble with the parking pass vending machine which led to the wrong pkg pass being given and our car being towed, so be careful.
But overall a great experience and would definitely stay here again!!
Roger and the contact person he put me in touch with were very pleasant and easy to reach and communicate with. I needed to make a change after making the initial reservation and it was accomplished with minimal effort. The place itself was perfect for me. Very clean, very cool AC, and spacious. 2 beds in separate rooms with a door in between would make very comfortable sleeping for 4. 2 full bath rooms, each with toilet, sink, shower, and bathtub! 1 balcony off the bedroom with chairs, table, and canopy looking out over the ocean and another small one off the kitchen. Right in the heart of Waikiki, this location is ideal for vacationers as it makes everything super accessible. I rented a car and never had a problem finding parking ($20/day) under the building. One tip: Be sure to look under the other tower if the lot below your tower is full. The beach is less than a 5 min walk and there are dozens of restaurants, bars, and activities within a 5-20 min walk. One thing to note is that there is not a full stove/oven. There is a microwave (which I used) and a hotplate (which I did not), so I did not find this to be a problem, but just don't plan to cook any elaborate at-home meals. When I'm back in Hawaii I plan to stay in this or another of Roger's places again.
We loved the place and the location so close to Waikiki, Pearl Harbor and Hanauma Bay.
The apartment is spacious for 2, clean and with a nice view of the Beach. Parking was easy to find in the garage below the towers.
If you are more than 2, the 2 separate bathrooms are great!
I travelled to Hawaii with my best friend and stayed in Rogers apartment. We didnt see Roger but getting the keys and communication between us was very easy and prompt. The apartment was clean and spacious enough for two seperate people. It was great having two bathrooms and Waikiki main street was a veey short walk to get. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly.
