As fun as Waikiki is, do take a day to drive around and see for yourself the beauty of our magical place, you will be back

Your closest surf spots are Queens, Canoes, Pops, 3's and Walls for body boarding. Take in the sunsets and bring your camera! Aloha!
My husband and I stayed at Brenda's apartment from (phone number hidden). The apartment is depicted accurately in the pictures. The kitchen is on the smaller side but it has everything you need. The bed is big and comfortable, and the apartment overall was clean and neat. The bathroom appears to be on the older side but that was clean as well. Brenda was always available and ready to answer whatever questions we had. There was no smoke smell the time when we were there. The location is AWESOME. It's literally one block from the beach, the boardwalk, the shops and restaurants on Waikiki Beach, and an easy 5-10 minute walk to the Honolulu Zoo. There is parking right next to the building for $20 a day, but right by the zoo is free parking and it was safe. The apartment is comfortable for one or 2 people; any more than that makes the apartment too tight. If you're looking for a comfortable, convenient location and home base to explore the rest of the island, this place is it! Thanks Brenda!
Wonderful unit tastefully decorated in a great location! Close to beach, restaurants, and very, very clean. A great non-smoking room and since I am really sensitive to smoke, I need this. There is no smoke smell at all. I will definitely be back! I thoroughly enjoyed staying here.
The Studio is in a well protected tower. Checking in was easy. The place is nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equiped. The location is a bit loud but close to lots of things. You won't need a rental car. It is only a very short walk to the beach and lots of restaurants (Dukes). Thank you Brenda for the beach equipment.
The apartment is as represented in the pictures and is in a good location for access to the beach and shops. Check in/out was very easy and the building security is good on each level. Unfortunately the room smelt of smoke for the three days we were there and we found the air conditioning too loud to leave on overnight. We also saw a fair homeless people in the area. Overall the apartment is good value for money but I would pay the extra to stay in a hotel next time.
I just returned home from my stay at Brenda's place in Waikiki. I really liked the location, and the studio was very comfortable.The bed was huge and super comfy. Just a short walk down Kuhio is a grocery store where i was able to buy drinks and snacks to have on hand in the studio. It was an easy walk to the zoo, and Diamond Head. there's a great little mexican restaurant around the corner on Koa, called La Cucaracha. I would definately stay there again. If you're not used to homeless people, you may not like the location, as it's at the end of town where they seem to congregate.I was travelling alone, and was never bothered.
Brenda's apartment was amazing! It was very clean, nicely decorated and very welcoming. The kitchen and bathroom had everything we needed and we felt very comfortable. The building itself was located perfectly, with a 24h convenience store right next door and a parking garage in the basement. Waikiki beach was literally 2 blocks away, not further than many of the resorts!
Overall we had a great time and highly appreciated the apartment and Brenda's hospitality.
The studio was clean and had everything as described. 2 blocks from Waikiki away, and in the reach of several restaurants. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and reading our travel guides. We missed our last email conversation with Brenda, but Brenda was very helpful on the phone with explaining us the steps for checking in.
Great location, 3 mins walk to the beach and main shipping area. Room is cozy and clean, with 2 balconies. Just sometimes abit noise in the morning from the shops, even it's located in 7th floor we can still hear it.
But overall is great, highly recommended place to stay in Waikiki area. Thanks again Brenda!
This studio was everything that was promised. Central to all Waikiki hotspots for food, shopping and the beach. Everything you need is literally a 3 minute walk away.
The studio itself was adorable with all the amenities shown and is perfect for 2 (the bed is huge & comfy so you might be able to squeeze in 3 people, no problem).
Brenda was a fantastic host! She was always a phone call or email away when we had any questions and responded promptly.
The combination between the wonderful studio and wonderful host was definitely enough to guarantee that we will be renting this studio the next time we venture out to the beauty that is Hawaii.
Pretty solid and only like a minute walk to the beach. Very cute unit.
