I have rented out this ocean view studio since 1998.
I am sure you will like this lovely clean awesome view unit!
My goal is client satisfaction.
Please feel free to ask any questions.
Eriko is a lovely host and the apartment is very nice and cosy. The location is very convenient, right in the heart of Waikiki, close to all the shops and restaurants. The apartment is very clean and the view is amazing.
The view is absolutely amazing and Eriko was a very helpful host who was easy to get and stay in touch with. when any problem arose, as the wifi not functioning properly she immediately responded and the wifi fee was redeemed. The studio however would do with a freshening up. Many lamps did not work and many post-its were affixed to lamp buttons etc to inform you that the were out of order. I would also not recommend you to stay more than two persons, the sofa or extra bed was not comfy at all.
Eriko’s email/txt/phone communications prior to ones arrival is 2nd to none. She opens the lines of communications to ensure transition goes as smooth as possible. I commend her for her professionalism during the exchange process to studio.
This property is located walking distance to everything Honolulu has to offer. The studio is a can’t beat price for this location. I recommend (The Bus), bus routes are also easily accessible within a couple of blocks and take you anywhere on the island for the very cheap price of $2.75. I can say my overall experience was well worth for the price paid with only one concern for future occupants.
Recommendation: This issue has been brought to Eriko attention by past occupants. All carpets/rugs need to be replaced for future occupants. As I stated the overall experience was worth the stay. Such a nice little place provided for a great price!!! As for the rugs/carpets; if replaced the room would be perfect!!!
Guest: Meredith “My only complaint about the studio is that the carpet could stand a good cleaning;”
Guest: Nu “carpet is a bit old and should be removed”
Guest:Paul “We were disappointed to see how small room was and how heavily soiled and dirty room to room carpet was. We were not able to go barefoot on the carpet."
Guest: Albert ”Had a decent time staying here. Like the other reviews have stated, the floor was a bit on the dirty side which was basically resolved by keeping our slippers on prettying at all times”
The view from the balcony is really amazing! Location was perfect; 5-10 min walk to the beach and the bus stop (to Pearl Harbor and diamond head) is close. Too bad that the pool was closed during our stay. Smell from the trash shute on the hallway is pretty bad, but luckily hardly noticeable in the apartment (just a little bit in the kitchen area). Realize that next to the airbnb costs the host charges additional costs for tax, cleaning fee and wifi. We had a great stay!
Nice budget option.
I don´t think you can get a much better view in Honolulu: you have a view of Diamond Head, skyline of Honolulu and the ocean. It´s incredible and you can even watch the sunrise while still staying in bed ;-).
The apartment itself is cozy, maybe the facilities/carpet could get updated in the future, but it was totally ok for our stay and we felt very comfortable.
Eriko is very nice too and check-in / check-out was easy without any trouble. Thanks again!
We just can say "Thank you Eriko!" Honestly the studio was more than expected: perfect location, all the amenities included (kitchen, microwave, air condition, clean, an incredible bed, tv, ....) Moreover the views from the studio are very nice, the canal (very near located) is really beautiful and you can also see the sea! If I visit again Oahu, I would like to have the opportunity to stay in this studio :)
Our stay in Eriko's lovely clean apartment was fantastic. The views are amazing and you are so close to all you could need - shopping, beaches, pool, gym and a convenience store in the building. Eriko met us at the apartment and made our check in a hassle free experience. Would semi areal stay here again.
You'll want to come back for the view - get up early and you're treated to watching the sunrise.
Other pros; height gives you plenty of breeze so you can sleep with the doors open and aircon off.
Clean apartment - easily takes 2.
Close to Waikiki centre.
Convenience Store located on 6th floor of building.
Eriko was there when I arrived and made the whole check-in process easy and stress free. If you're contemplating using AirBnB and are worried about complications, book this place; Eriko makes it all very easy.
