True to the description, the place is simple, functional and clean. Phil was super easy to reach and though we didn't get to meet in person he offered my in-laws the opportunity to train at his boxing gym. Great value especially if you are out and about most of the time. Phil even let my in-laws borrow snorkels and other activity equipments.

We stayed in Kapolei at this little studio for a week. It was comfortable and a great place to stay while we were there. It was sufficient for our needs for sure. There was a lot of amenities that Phil provided. The free parking was really nice. Parking is at a premium in Hawaii. It has an ocean view and is close to many stores and restaurants.

Phil texted us with all the information we needed to find the place before we landed and he greeted us when we settled in. We had a great stay! thanks Phil!

This is my second time staying at Phil's place. He is always available if you need anything. His studio is very clean and he provides towels, toiletries and boogie boards! He even provides a parking space if you have a car! He is in a quiet neighborhood that is close to everything (groceries, fast food, outlet mall). I would come back in a heartbeat. Thanks again Phil!

Phil was very responsive and accommodated our request (extra bed sheet). The area is pretty quiet and close to a supermarket. again, this is really BASIC as its name suggest. and the picture might be from a while ago which looks newer. i wouldn't really sit inside when i am awake, not that pleasant, especially compare to whats outside. i would really recommend to hire a maid to clean the place up to make people feel more inviting/welcoming. my friend (girl) was actually so disturbed after the first night that we ended up paying our other friends to stay on sofa bed in their hotel instead. i admit this might be a little extreme on our side, plus the initial shock vs the expectation we had when we see the picture on the posting. to be fair, I believe it is actually cleaner than it appeared to us, and no issue with bugs. in summary i'd say it is ok to just to sleep over if you are on budget.

The host did not make us feel welcome. The description was accurate "basic". I'm glad that I hadn't invited my mother, she would not have stayed here

I was off Island at the time of her reservation. My phone is always on 24/7 and can always be reached by text or email if any guest needs me.

Outdoors and Boxing is what I do.

I really enjoy the outdoors whether it be hiking, fishing, camping, surfing, or any other outdoor activity.

Coaching and Training Boxing is not only my hobby, but my business. I own a boxing gym here on Oahu. I really enjoy introducing people of all ages and abilities to the SWEET SCIENCE.
