Positioned to always get good air flow when trades winds are blowing. With the canal view you get to watch canoes paddle by every day. Across street from huge mall and all types of beaches.
I have a centrally located 2 bedroom Waikiki highrise overlooking the Ala Wai Canal and the Waikiki Harbor. Both rooms have a Queen size bed, plenty of closet and drawer space and blackout shades for you late risers or early crashers. My condo has a full kitchen with a washer and dryer for your use. Each bedroom has an attached bathroom with a shared shower. The bathrooms are newly remodeled. The shower is a new stone and pebble floor shower. The condo sits on one of the few streets in Waikiki that has plenty of street parking and also has its own dedicated parking space. It is located right next to bus routes that easily take you all over Oahu. Our bus system is the best in the country so I would recommend taking advantage of it to go to all the great beaches. You will be walking distance to Ala Moana Mall, two great beaches,surf breaks, local harbor pubs with live music, fine dining and a grocery store. The condo complex also has a heated pool and an area to BBQ. The condo has 2 large sofas w/ a pull out queen bed, Wifi, cable, a 50 inch flat screen tv and a DVD player.

Close to Ilikai and Hilton Hawaiian Hotel.

My family stayed at Francisco's nice apt for a two-week vocation. It is really a perfect apt: very convenient position which is close to Waikiki, Ala Moana shopping center, Ala moana beach park, Don Qujoute supermarket. Besides, the facility of the apt is also good: nice kitchen, laundry machine, Wifi, parking unit etc. you can have every thing as you have at home. I love the big TV with which we had great family time watching some comedy. Franco is a nice owner and I should say thank you to him for renting me this condo. Any way, this is a very good condo to stay for my vocation. Mahalo Francisco!
We had an incredible time. Traveling from Boston... It was so nice to have towels, cooler, everyday amenities at our disposal. Thank you Francisco. A Great location my pedometer got a work out. We Walked to beach, bar, restaurants, mall, groceries etc. The cross breeze coming in kept the rooms cool. It is a busy complex and street. Having lived in the city, I am used to extra noises. Everyone is considerate and mindful. We would stay here again. Aloha !!!
We stayed at Francisco's place for 13 days. We were in Hawaii for my parents' 40th Anniversary and there were five of us in the condo. The condo was just like the description and reviews. It was spacious (even with five). The jack and jill bathrooms were great and newly renovated. The windows in the dining area open completely which makes you feel like you are outside even though there is no lanai. The beds are very comfortable and as everyone else has stated in their reviews, there is no AC but the fans and windows are perfectly sufficient. There is a washer and dryer in the unit which is nice so you don't have to pack as much!
Everything is provided for you which was so nice. The place has beach towels, beach mats, snorkel gear, coolers for picnics, soap, and even sun burn lotion (that isn't even a list of everything). We had a lovely stay, Francisco is easy to get a hold of and quick to respond to any questions. Thank you for a great vacation!!
Clean and nice place in a really quiet neighborhood. They have everything for us even including suntan oil and snorkelling gear. If we are going back, we are for sure going to stay there again.
Our stay was great. Everything was very clean and the small extras provided (beach towels, sun screen, bathroom toiletries) made our stay so much more homely. Great location. Thank you Francisco for making us feel welcome and being available to answer my questions. Regards. Laura and family
Highly recommended place to stay when you visit Oahu! Francisco was a wonderful host since he was easy to contact during our reservation and throughout our trip. His speedy responses via email was greatly appreciated and was very accommodating with our numerous questions.
We stayed here for over a week and the location was perfect for our group of 6. We were within walking distance of grocery stores, shopping centers, restaurants, and beaches. We also were not far from the start line of the Honolulu Marathon. The apartment had all the amenities that we needed such as washer/dryer, kitchen appliances, swimming and snorkel gear, towels, and shower amenities. Bathrooms and shared shower were nice as they were remodeled. Rooms were a good size. If you plan to use the pull out bed, it is very springy. It may be uncomfortable who are used to a bed, but we got used to it after a few days.
Overall, it was a very nice stay and we would stay here again!
The condo was well kept and spacious. The bedrooms were roomy and had all the little amenities that make one feel at home. The neighborhood was great. We were surrounded by fun parts of the city to explore. The view of the canal from the large window was captivating. We didn't use it because we were at the beach so much but there is a nice little pool for tenant use. There are food markets surrounding the area as well. The lack of air conditioning is easily countered by the copious number of ceiling fans as well as the big window in the living room that captures the tradewinds easily. The week we spent in Francisco's condo flew by because we were busy exploring what Honolulu/Oahu had to offer but also because the condo felt like a home away from home.

Francisco and Leah. Franco and I have lived and worked in Hawaii for the past several years. We just recently had our first child and love parenting. We are very involved in the paddling community and love our Hawaii lifestyle. We have been Airbnb hosts for the past 2 years, renting out one of our condo rooms. We recently bought and remodeled a great studio in the Waikiki Grand which we are now listing on Airbnb. We love meeting new people and truly enjoy hosting!
