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.
On arrival, we were delayed at the airport and Daniel had to wait for us to arrive. After we left for Big Island, we realized JJ left his shirts and more at the apartment. Daniel went out of his way to ship them to JJ. This is truly aloha spirit! Thank you, Daniel, mahalo!
We would definitely stay in Cozy again when in Honolulu.
Cozy is located very close to Diamondhead which is gorgeous to see. Parking is on the street but we had no problem finding a place to park within a block of Cozy. The kitchen is outfitted with basic needs for a vacation rental. The bedroom bed and the living room couch/bed are both comfortable.
Cozy is located in a neighborhood which means people and kids and pets. We had no problem with noise at all.
Cozy is small and tight for three adults. One point about the bathroom is the shower. There is a significant step over and down to get into the shower, more than a foot high. If someone has mobility issues, this could present a problem.
We would definitely stay again. Cozy met our needs very well. It is a small space but you are in Hawai'i so you are out and about all the time anyway. It felt safe there.
We had a great stay at Chifumi and Daniels place! It looked just like in the pictures and it had everything that you would need for a short stay (we stayed for two weeks). We met both of our hostesses and they were very friendly and told us where to go grocery shopping and other helpful things. You also have access to a room with snorkelling gear and a small board and other fun stuff. Walking distance to everything in Waikiki - 10 mins. to the beach! All in all a very pleasant stay - we would definately come back!
Funktionale Unterkunft mit allem nötigen Equipment und sehr zentral gelegen (etwa 15min Spaziergang zu Waikiki). Sicherlich nicht das schönste Apartment, das Honolulu zu bieten hat, aber für den Preis dennoch unschlagbar und es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht, zumal man auf Hawaii sowieso nicht lange im Apartment hocken sollte. Alles in allem ein guter Rückzugsort nach einem langen Tag voller Strand, Wanderungen und Sightseeing.
Hat man einen Mietwagen, muss man evtl. einmal um den Block fahren um eine Parkmöglichkeit zu finden, was aber nicht weiter schlimm ist. Die Gegend und Umgebung schien sehr ruhig und unauffällig, was an nach einem langen Tag auf Ohau sehr angenehm ist.
Eine gute Erfahrung, und beim nächsten Besuch in Honolulu sicherlich wieder eine Option!
This is a good and affordable alternative to staying in hotels. We felt like a local living in Chifumi & Daniel's apt. The place is clean and has all you need. Has a full kitchen with all utensils. I especially like that they provide you with a rice cooker as we like to eat rice. Wifi is really fast. Location is very good. Quiet neighborhood. About 15-20 mins walk to the beach. Near a bus stop. The best is that all the best local Hawaiian foods are just within walking distance like Rainbow Drive In, Ono Seafoods and Leonard's Bakery. Definitely recommend this place.
