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).
Carrie was great - really responsive to my additonal requests. The view is amazing the location is perfect and the building is really well managed - good security, lovely pool and bbq area. We had a terrific holiday staying in this studio.
The place was as pictured; favorite feature was the amazing lanai with comfy furniture and a smashing view of the canal, Diamond Head, and the ocean. Right in bustling Waikiki and five-minute walk to the beach and endless restaurants, bars, etc. Kitchen and bathroom are tiny, but who cares? We spent most of our time we were in the room on the lanai anyway, as you should in Hawaii!
Roger hat auf unsere Wünsche und Anfragen sofort reagiert. Zur Lage der Wohnung: herrlicher Blick zum Diamont Head, zum Kanal und zum Meer. Das Haus befindet sich mitten im Trubel von Waikiki. Die Wohnung bietet keine Abstellmöglichkeiten, und zwar weder im Bad noch für die Koffer. Für die Garderobe ist ebenfalls kaum Platz.
Roger was an excellent host. He was very attentive to our needs/questions
The room was exactly as described. It is easy walking distance to Waikiki Beach as well as Hononlulu Zoo.
If we had the opportunity to rent from Roger again, we would do so.
Location was awesome. It was walking distance from the beach and all the restaurants. Condo was comfortable for 3 people. Nice view since it was on the 32nd floor. There was always a security guard in lobby so I felt safe. Avoid paying parking fees. I found parking on the street without a problem. Monday and Friday were street sweeping so you have to move your car by 8:30 am which was not a problem since we always left early to explore the city. I loved Hawaii and Roger's location was perfect for our first visit. Roger was easy to contact too. Would recommend this condo.
