This unit is located on a small side-street so it is very quiet for being in the center of Waikiki! All of Waikiki's best surf spots are a few steps away, just walk out the door!
Your neighbors staying in the 5-star hotels are paying 3 times what you will be without having the ability to save on eating out every meal. When you do choose to eat out, there are hundreds of choices within a few blocks. Public transportation to all areas of the island is right out the door. 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
You will enjoy the convenience of having all that Waikiki has to offer steps away! For homemade great quality food try the Cafe at the Waikiki Banyan, they also have the best coffee in town, it's one block away walking towards Diamond Head.
Your closest surf spots are Queens, Canoes, Pops, 3's and Walls for body boarding. Take in the sunsets and bring your camera! Aloha!
Please remove trash there are trash chutes on every floor. Clean dishes you use. Leave 1key in lock box and 1 key in room.
Brenda's studio was literally 2 blocks from the beach. We had a chance to walk around the block and find hole in the wall eateries that were definitely local favorites. During check-in into the studio, Brenda was so very kind and patient to walk us through the process. Upon entering, the pictures shown were as clear and accurate in person. All you ever need for your stay is all included! The 2 balconies had separate amazing views and were great for having a nice breakfast out there. Also, if you decide to rent a car, just know that it is very difficult to find parking around the area but there is a public parking garage located below the building (entrance on Kuhio). The price was $2 per 30 minutes (I think) and $20 for 24 hours (I'm positive). There was nothing more I could've asked for. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an alternative to a hotel or resort.
Brenda's studio was in such a great location, everything in Waikiki was within walking distance...the surf, restaurants, bars, public transport and even Diamond head and the Ala Moana shopping centre if you're a keen hiker.
The studio is well appointed and has everything you need including the very comfortable king bed and air conditioning.
Also a big plus was how quiet the location was considering it was only 2 blocks away from the main strip.
Thanks Brenda, I will recommend your studio to others and will stay again in the future.

My husband and I spent a few days in Waikiki at Brenda's place. The location was ideal, the condo well-appointed. I love the quality of the linens. It was small but suited us perfectly.
Brenda's place was absolutely perfect. It's exactly how it looks in the photos. Cleanliness was 100% and super accommodating to any guest needs. The location was prime as it was just minutes walk to the beach and seconds from ships and restaurants. I would absolutely love to stay there again on my next visit to Hawaii:) thanks Brenda!
We had a wonderful time over New Year's Eve. Brenda's place is beautiful and close to the beach. We would definitely stay there again.
Cool room! Same as it shows in the picture and very convient (literally 2 mins to Waikiki). Has all kinds of facilities we need for life and for beach~ very thoughtful host! Although we didn't meet Brenda, she is very responsive in mail, which is helpful.
The studio is clean and nicely-decorated. It really is very close to the beach, and I personally prefer this part of Waikiki as it's close to the less built-up end of things. If you're a bona fide country girl like me, you might find it a bit noisy, but that's probably standard for this location and nothing a good pair of earplugs can't fix.
