Since this was our 3rd stay at Dan and Chifumi's apartment, that in itself is pretty much a recommendation. The best thing about this place is the location. My husband and I are grateful for the extra sweet mangoes you have us, Dan. Mahalo!
Good location close to Waikiki beach walking or with the public bus.
Unfortunately very hot, too bright and noisy since early morning. The bed is not so comfortable and the air conditioning is very noisy and not efficient.
Great location if your looking for a base camp to explore Waikiki and Oahu. There is a convenience store nearby that is open early and late. Some decent food spots too. If you're street parking, it might get tricky finding an open spot at times. Comfortable unit. Has good hot water and all other amenities like good wifi. You might want to bring your own pillow if your like pillows with more firmness or volume. Great spot.
NIGHTMARISH EXPERIENCE WITH THE HOST AND AIRBNB
First, the room. As other guests have noted, the photos of the rental unit are very misleading, probably by using professional lighting and fisheye lens. The bedroom is much darker and smaller than the photos suggest. The bed takes up virtually the entire room and the room is dark: no room for yoga. Second, there is nothing that prohibits smoking immediately outside the apartment in the front or the back. Third, while there was hot water in the sink, the shower had cold to lukewarm water only. And the drain did not work, so that there was an inch or two of water in the bottom when I took a shower. Fourth, there was an unremovable plastic cover on the mattress, which made the bed uncomfortable. The host admitted this fact – about 10 days after I cancelled -- saying he was storing the mattress on the bed in my rental unit. Fifth, the cheap T.V. is the smallest with the worst sound I have ever had in a rental unit. And it got only about 10 channels. Sixth, the coin-operated washer and drier available to anyone from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. are inches away from the back wall of the bedroom.
About 6-7 weeks before our reservation, I found some negative reviews of this same bedroom, but the host refused to discuss cancelling and a partial refund. One of the contract provisions was the requirement that I had to cancel the 30-day reservation within 24 hours and without knowing whether Airbnb would honor my complaints of material misrepresentations and give me a refund. I complained about this unfair term long before I moved in, but Airbnb refused to consider a refund until I moved in. When I did move in, I decided I did not want to suffer this unit or the host for a month. The Airbnb contract required me to cancel within 24 hours which I did.
On the day of my arrival, the host refused to return my phone calls after he had specifically told me to call him 30 minutes before I arrived to get instructions about how to get into the unit. Instead he posted this information without telling me ONLY on the Airbnb internet site, which I did not discover until hours later when I got on the internet to complain. That is, he said to call and never indicated I needed to go online to find out how to get in.
The host responded to my complaints with a simple “you are a liar,” and never offered to remedy the problems he claimed were lies. Only later did the host admit to one of my complaints, the mattress with the plastic cover on it. He claimed he was “storing” the mattress in my unit. I concur with one guest who referred to the host as a bully who verbally attacked her when she complained. These are just the highlights of my nightmarish experience.
I could leave a long demeaning review for Jay but I'm simply not going to belittle myself by responding to Jays review. He reserved our unit several months ahead of time. He came to hawaii early found a cheaper unit else where and wanted to cancel his reservation. We declined his request. He is the kind of person that used airbnbs polices to get what he wanted. He came he created a grand story and left. We don't need to say a word read our 100+ positive reviews. See what non-conniving people had to say. As they will tell the truth as they are not trying to ripp us off.If you have any questions first read all of our reviews then ask me anything you would like. We are here to help you enjoy your vacation anyway we can.
Aloha Chifumi & Daniel
Really really nice little room, close to Waikiki beach, food, grocery and everything. Daniel was great, helped us store our luggage after 11am check out time since we had a mid night flight.
