Norman was a great host and the description of the apartment was 100% accurate, the view was even nicer than expected. The apartment offered everything needed for a great stay and the location is perfect. Whenever we had a question, Norman was there to offer help and fun to talk to. If you want to have a great time in Waikiki, go to this place!
It was wonderful stay! Norman accepted our early checkin and gave us the key smoothly even though we couldn't get there on time. the condominium located at very nice location at Waikiki. hope to stay again!
Norman was a fantastic host - was there to greet us when we arrived a bit earlier than expected, and offered to show us the wonderful island yet offered us privacy as needed. The location is about a 15 minute walk from the nearest beach, and especially if you have a car, the location is quite central. The room was cozy yet was as described. The building could use some upgrades but the pool/bbq area was quite nice.
I very much enjoyed staying here!! The location is super convenient, I love the view, the kitchen was complete and the wifi was fast! May be a bit smaller space than it seemed in the picture, but who comes to Hawaii to stay indoors? :)
Norman was awesome!! He even helped me bring my bags to the room. He also text me later to make sure everything was OK and if I needed anything. The description of the apt. is 100% accurate. I stayed there 11 days and had absolutely no issues. I would definitely stay there again.
We had a special request and Norman was very accommodating. The description of the room was accurate and the location was perfect for the class my husband took at Ft. DeRussy. Room was small but the view was great; it was all we needed for a few days' stay.
Norman is a very gracious host! The accommodations were as described. Amazing view. Central to activities. Clean and comfortable. Norman is a very nice guy and helpful with any questions. Great stay! Thanks!

Aloha! I love traveling, and exploring the great outdoors. Whether out on hikes or ocean excursions, the Hawaiian Islands offer tremendous amount of beautiful landscape and biodiversity. After coming to Hawaii for graduate school in biology, I fell in love with the islands immediately. I hope to share my knowledge about this paradise and hope to preserve it for future generations!
