All fantastic. Very clean and comfortable. It is close to supermarkets and restaurants. Highly recommended.
Words cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for Sam and Junko making my first experience with Airbnb an enjoyable one! We had a blast in Waikiki beach and loved the proximity of the condo to all that Waikiki has to offer from fine dining, shopping, bus transport and most of all a two block walk to the beach. The condo is only steps away from live entertainment at The Royal Hawaiin Center. We rode The Bus daily to Ala Moana Mall to eat lunch at the food court and view shows at the center stage. There are so many activities to partake in! The condo also has lovely panoramic views of the beach, mountains and all of Waikiki. The unit has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. My favorite area was the large lanai accessed through the bedroom, as well as eating breakfast while overlooking the ocean from the living room. Overall, I plan to book more stays with these owners, as they were very responsive and so sweet when we arrived to meet them for the keys and upon departure. I am planning to return with my sons to share this awesome adventure with them. See you soon Sam and Junko. Mahalo!
Sam and Junko are great hosts, very kind and patient and smile all the time. Their apt was great too, spacious and clean, comfortable sofa and bed. What more wonderful was the full equipped kitchen, every thing we need for cooking was there, plus there was rice cooker that was important to Chinese like us. Straight up facing the ocean made us enjoyable breakfasts every morning, and night view from balcony was super 2. The air flow was great on 36th floor that's why we did not use air conditioning. Thanks Sam and Junko, hope to see you next time when we get back.
Overall, my stay at Sam's place was awesome. Very convenient location, welcoming atmosphere, beautiful view from the place, and many more... I highly recommend Sam's place to anyone.
This was my first time using airbnb and I was traveling alone, so at first I had some reservations. However, Sam instantly made me feel comfortable with the great communication he maintained through emails and his friendliness upon arrival. The condo was exactly like how he described- including being able to see the fireworks on Friday nights from the lanai! The condo also had a few additional benefits- such as useful items other guests had left- a beach chair, snorkel and goggles, a boogie board- many of which came in handy during my month stay. The room isn't extremely modern but I was very happy with the cleanliness of the condo and the safety of the surrounding Waikiki area. One last thing- if you're a runner, the Ala Wai canal runs right below this building and provides a close and less-crowded path to get your daily run in on. Thanks Sam- I will contact you again if I am ever in Hawaii in the future!
We had an absolute ball in Hawaii and the wonderful accommodation provided by Sam and Junko contributed to this enjoyment by being extremely welcoming and accommodating. The apartment was very clean, modern and most importantly, centrally located to everything we wanted to see and visit. Specifically, it is walking distance to Waikiki beach, the main streets of Waikiki and its attractions, and with a bit of effort; Ala Moana! The apartment block itself is also extremely well equipped for all your leisure needs, possessing a great pool, spa and gym. Wholeheartedly recommend Sam and Junkos apartment for your Hawaiian holiday.
Apartment was clean and equipped with everything you need. Very comfortable. Sam and Junko met us in the foyer and took us up to the room and showed us around and how everything worked.
Location was convenient and within walking distance to the beach and shops.
We appreciated the little touches such as new soap and dish sponges in packets. And the option to use the phone for local calls.
Air conditioner is loud and needs a service or replacement as it's not very cold but we used the fan which was adequate. Great laundry facilities.
Was a very comfortable stay.
great place! Good neighborhood and walking distance to everywhere. No parking, but the room was clean and nice, with large balcony! Slept well since the room was very quite. The pool and hot tub are a great addition. I highly recommend and will definitely consider staying again.
Sam and Janko were great host. They were flexible with the key exchange and the apartment was as described. Incredible view and Honolulu was amazing to visit. When I go back Hawaii I plan to check with Sam and Janko on the availability of the apartment.
Sam was great and this studio was perfect! Its really spacious, has a comfortable bed and in a great location. The lanai was really nice and I would definitely stay again!
