Welcome to Waikiki and welcome to this one bedroom penthouse, that is more than 40-floors above Honolulu, with a wide 180-degree view that overlooks the ocean and every structure within an eighth-mile. It offers an an especially wide ocean view from Waikiki Beach to Diamond Head. This is a private resident and not a hotel.
The bedroom has:
Two full-size beds,
Two nightstands w/lamp
A closet with hangers, iron and ironing board,
TV and Blu-ray player.
The bathroom has:
Two sinks w/mirror.
The microfiber couch is positioned in the path of the afternoon sun so it's perfect for impromptu afternoon naps. The living room has a separate thermostat so the AC in the living room can be regulated separately from the AC in the bedroom. All the windows in the unit open, so you can take in the cool Hawaiian breeze that easily flows through a corner condo.
The kitchen is designed so you can sit and watch the ocean view from morning to sunset, and Oahu Ko'olau mountain range. There is a fire works show every Friday night at 7:45pm that you can view from the penthouse. The living room is comfortable with a microfiber couch, TV, Blu-ray player, with an assortment of the latest movies. There is a small bar for mixing drinks in the living room (you provide the alcohol). You can relax in the hot bath located inside the penthouse where you can view the ocean, or the city lights at night. The washer and dryer are just outside your front door and are shared with one neighbor.
A large recreation deck with grills and picnic tables for guest use gives you plenty of room to host outdoor gatherings. The building has a pool for resident and guest use.
The building is also a hotel, so telling any taxi driver or shuttle driver the hotel name will always have them knowing where to go.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Clean and roomy condo and the view is unsurpassed!!
Nice view & good location. The shower system and AC need some update. The water temperature changes from comfortable to very hot to very cold in every 10 seconds. If you have allergy, this might not be your first choice.
Our second stay hosted by Thomas was as fabulous as the first! We can't wait for the third!
Very nice place to stay highly recommend
Good location. Walkable distance to all things in Waikiki. The building is a little bit run down, but Thomas' place is in great condition. The place has a lot of space and great views of the ocean, fireworks, and city.
This place is all about the fantastic view of Waikiki. Walking distance to the beach and shopping strip. The building is a little old however Thomas' apartment is in great condition and is very spacious. If you feel like a night in on the couch then there are plenty of DVD's to keep you entertained. All in all, a great stay!
Our recent stay at two of Thomas' penthouses were definitely one of the many highlights of our visit to Hawaii. I would not hesitate to return and will surely recommend his accommodations to others. The location is easy to find and in a great area with absolutely fantastic views! With three women in one location... there was plenty of space for our things which was important. A regular hotel room would not have been sufficient or could not compare.
After a minor misunderstanding about the check-in time, everything went perfectly. Stunning view from the beautiful apartment, very well positioned in Waikiki area, and a very kind host.
had a great time at Thomas' house.
Great view, just a mins walk to city centre and also very clean.
This is an amazing place. The views of the Honolulu and Waikiki are out of this world. The host Thomas is a top host. Quick to reply to email and flexible about check in time. Sitting in the bath, in your living room, overlooking the sunset? Priceless. We didn't want to leave. If you want to have a night in you ca curl up on the comfy couch and watch one of the 100s of DVD is the room. It was like a video store!
