Everything is essentially just as we expected: indeed fantastic view of mtn and ocean, quite ideal location. Roger is also very responsive in giving all needed instructions well ahead of the booked reservations by emails or cell phone messages.
This apartment is in a great location, minutes walk away from main shopping and dining/ beach. You feel safe wondering around at night and are close to the supermarket. It has a great gym, with relatively new equipment if you enjoy a morning workout. The pool is a good size and has a good holiday feel to it if you don't want to go to the beach all the time. The apartment has good views toward Diamond Head and the beach. There is also a convenience store located on the 6th floor which is useful. Overall we had a very pleasant stay here.
Nice place. Convenient to Waikiki and easy to get around. Not for anyone looking to spend the day in the hotel. Everything worked and Roger was responsive.
A very pleasant space overall. Loved the balcony and views. The kitchenette was very convenient. It was clean but could do with being updated. Rodger was very prompt with all communication.
A friend and I stayed at this apartment for 10 days while in Waikiki. Everything about this place was easy and breezy...from picking up our keys to lounging on the balcony.
The location is perfect, just two short blocks from the beach and right on the canals if you are a keen jogger/walker.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great value, fantastic location and all the conveniences of home.
Roger was a great host, providing all the necessary information and answering every question had in a timely and helpful way.
Roger was a very accommodating host especially when we had a change in our travel plans and had to arrive earlier than the stipulated check-in time (3 pm). We stayed a total of 11 nights and enjoyed every moment of it.
Location was unbelievable, we felt like we were in the centre of everything! We were steps away from all the main public transportation as well as the shops and the beach. Building security was perfect as well. It was great that laundry facilities were on the condo premises too.
The lani at the apt was more spacious than we expected (which was very good). It was a great place for us to wind down after each day's activities. It can also double up as a great tanning spot during the mornings.The view from the lani is simply quite breathtaking as it takes in the whole expanse of diamond head as well as the skyline of the city.
Overall, we couldn't think of a better place to stay during our time in Honolulu. Many thanks Roger (and to Carrie too).
