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.
The view is great and the building is in the center of everything. There's a mini-mart and laundry in the building which are great. The room itself is small and the kitchen is very basic. It would work best for two adults or a single traveler. Also we felt that the carpet is not too clean, we did not want to sit on the floor. The rest of the room is clean. Overall it's a good value option if you want to stay in Waikiki. P.S: Parking is $25 per day.
We were at the condo in March 2014. we are very sad because It was dirty and we had cockroaches in the room. we left earlier and got fortunately part of the money back.
I honestly couldn't imagine a better stay in Waikiki. Eriko was a fantastic host. She met me when I arrive (even though it was late) and she gave me a thorough overview of the unit. She was very kind and extremely responsive throughout my stay. I've stayed in quite a few AirBnB apartments, and she has been one of the best people I've worked with.
The studio itself was perfect. The view shown in the picture is the actual view from the apartment's balcony. Make sure you wake up for sunrise, it is a stunning sight! It is kept very clean and Eriko provides all the comforts of home. The ONLY thing remotely off putting is the garbage shoot just outside the door - it's kind of stinky. But the smell doesn't enter the room. You just have to put up with it when unlocking the door.
The building is very secure and clean. There is an Enterprise Rent-a-Car located on the first floor (though this Enterprise kind of has a sucky staff).
Overall I highly recommend this studio - except for the dates that I plan to return! I will definitely be booking it again.
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.
Eriko has thought of absolutely everything for this studio. From kitchen utensils, cooking, cleaning, etc to beach towels, mats snorkel gear. Studio hotel is surrounded by a couple of restaurants and a pharmacy. Pool/ Jacuzzi was a highlight for me because it is 15-20 min walk to the beach and shopping. Thank You for accommodating me and greeting me after a late flight arrival. I hope to return to Waikiki in the future.
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.
