The Space

Comfy couch/bed in living room of one bedroom condo on other side of Ala Wai canal from Waikiki. ...20 min walk to Waikiki or 5 min drive. Parking is difficult in my neighborhood but can be found, if you rent a car. Observe signs! Many restrictions - they will tow. Bus stops a block away.
Only one bathroom.
Great building w/ pool and gym. 24 hr security. Prime location near Waikiki, Ala Moana mall, UH Manoa campus, bus lines 3 and 9. Closest bus stop is on Kapiolani and University.

Address: 500 University ave #1405. Cross street is Kapiolani Blvd. From airport, take city bus 19 or 20 toward "Waikiki" and transfer at King and Punchbowl to the 3 or 9. Then tell the bus driver to drop you at Kapiolani and University. Then just walk RIGHT on University to my bldg. It is the taller of the two towers. The key fob will be at security office under unit 1405. they are there 24-7 so don't worry about the time you come in. Just let yourself in and make yourself comfortable. I may be asleep if you come in late but no worry.

  • Thea is fantastic! The space is great, and has an awesome view of Waikiki. It's a short walk to the beach/Waikiki. The building has a gym. Logistics were super simple and clear. Everything was great -- thank you!

  • Thea's flat is well located, a few steps away from Waikiki, and a short walk to the university, overlooking the canal. I liked walking through the park to the east end of Waikiki beach. Thea is fun and very easy to get along with, really helpful and really busy! I stayed a full 10 days for a conference at the university - the first 4 I had the flat to myself - the rest sharing with Thea and Joe. The sofa is very comfy, like a real bed. The only thing to be aware of is that the room you sleep in includes the kitchen and Thea's workspace - so it really is a shared space. This was not a problem for me and Thea will do her best to give you the space you need. My first AirBnB experience and it won't be my last. Oh- and top class shower too.

  • This was the second time staying with Thea, had a blast in Honolulu. Location is great and close to the Waikiki area which is about a 15-20 minutes walk around the water. The balcony is amazing, worth the money just to wake up to the skyline of Honolulu. Thea is a great host and gives you your own space but you will barely see her while she's hard at work. High recommend staying here, you won't regret it!

  • Had an amazing time in Honolulu at Thea's for 6 days. 20 min walk to beach and all the tourist areas. Stunning view. Great value if you cool to crash in a living room. Thea was awesome, very helpful and motivating and we just clicked. Did heaps of things together as well. Little gym was convenient too. All and all I really enjoyed my stay. Thanks! Jason

  • She has a great house and her couch is more comfortable than our queen bed. She was working most of the time but she helped us a lot (and we feel that she can help us more, if we need and it was very important for us). We did not use her kitchen but we ate a couple times in her balcony and we love that. Hopefully soon, we will visit her again.

  • I had a perfect stay at Thea's place. Unfortunately Thea wasn't there but everything was set up for me. So I enjoyed my time in Honolulu very much - and would always come back! Thanks Thea!

  • I had a wonderful stay at Thea's. Thea and Joe were very welcoming and I much enjoyed their company, and great advice on things to do and see. So you are sleeping in the living room, but you are given enough privacy to sleep well at night. The view is great, the swimming pool is a bonus.. for this price, definitely recommended!

  • I've had an amazing time staying at Thea's place. Thea is a great and generous host. I felt like I was staying at a friend's place. Her apartment is very nice and has a great view. It's also very close to the bus stops. If you go to Waikiki, stay at Thea's place. Thanks again Thea!

  • Even we´ve meet Thea just one time during our stay, we can definitely tell that she is a great host! We´ve had an awesome time in Honolulu and this also because of her nice home! The apartment is very clean and cosy and to enjoy breakfast with this wonderful view each morning was a whole pleasure for us. Thea´s apartment is close enough to walk to the beach and the bus station is very close by as well.

    Thank you Thea for providing us your home, we´ve had a great stay!

  • Thea's place is exactly as described. Great location, superb view and friendly host :)
    We stayed in Honolulu for 3 days and found Thea extremely friendly and helpful. She gave us keys so we had full flexibility with our sightseeing schedule.
    Appartment was just right for 3 people. Her couch is very comfortable. Oh, did I mention the view - ULTIMATE.
    Thanks again Thea !

I am a young professional and work in medical sales. My office is my home so I am in and out a lot. I surf and paddle outrigger canoes, enjoy hiking, cycling, and yoga. My place is on University Ave @ Kapiolani Ave.just outside of Waikiki and is about 15-20 minutes walk. Parking is not good in my neighborhood but can be found. Or you can pay for parking in the structure. I have a deal with one of my neighbors. The best way to book with me is to make sure you have a profile set up! What is your profession? Where did you go to school? And then just book it! No need to send a message unless you have further questions. If I have availability I will accept your request. Sometimes I may need you to re-book if I don't get to my computer in time to accept. My apologies in advance. I travel outer island for work sometimes and may not be in front of my computer for a day at a time. For discounts on Oahu tours and activities go to (website hidden) and check out the tab Discount Oahu, they have much to offer. Thank you and ALOHA!
