Penny was a great host - very timely and informative responses to all my questions. She was someone very easy to work with for me and my party!
The listing was accurate to the images and description. The central location and available parking sold us on the place, and while it's an older building, it did the job just fine for us. The view of the mountains was a nice feature too. It had all the appliances and utensils we needed to feel home for a week away on Oahu.
The view was incredible! The place was in a great location & very comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay in the Penthouse. Very roomy, great view. Had nearly every cooking utensil we could have wanted. Convenient walk to lots of shopping, restaurants, and the beach!
As advertised, this is a beautiful unit in a wonderfully convenient location. Having visited Waikiki a number of times regularly I already knew where the places I love are located and this unit puts me right there. Ease of access throughout the building (considering it's well secured) and just about everything needed is provided.
Penny provided so much information up front and made it a smooth arrival and departure process without questions needed. It was a pleasure dealing with her and I would definitely consider her unit again in the future.
This property was exactly as pictured and comfortably fit 8 adults in a combination of beds, couches and air mattresses. It would be absolutely ideal for a group of 4. The location was as good as you could ask for given its size, as it was an easy 5-10 min walk to the beach and Waikiki's main strip and restaurants. The building is on a main road and always had people about (there is a 24h McDonald's and iHop nearby), but you're easily high up enough to never have to deal with street noise. A highly recommended space. Finally, while we never got to meet Penny, she was always ready and willing to answer our questions thoroughly and promptly in the lead up to our trip.
Wir haben dieses wunderschöne Penthouse für unseren Aufenthalt genutzt und waren durchweg zufrieden. Gute Lage zum Strand und den Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Waikiki. Tolle Aussicht vom 38. Stockwerk und dementsprechend auch ruhig. Alles, was in der Beschreibung beschrieben war, entsprach auch der Realität. Das Einchecken und die Schlüsselübergabe funktionierten reibungslos. Die Einrichtung ist sehr großzügig, Die Küche ist mit den wichtigsten Gerätschaften ausgerüstet. Das tägliche Frühstück haben wir dort problemlos zubereiten können. Aber wer kommt schon nach Waikiki, um groß selber zu kochen ?
Das Penthouse ist für 4 Personen zu empfehlen. Für ein 5. Kleinkind ist auch noch Platz. Es gibt ein typisch amerikanisches Beistellklappbett, auf dem man allerdings nicht gut schlafen kann, zumindestens unser Kind nicht. Wenn man überlegt, wie wenig Hotel man für bezahlte Miete bekommt, ist diese riesengroße Wohnung eine Top-Empfehlung. Bei unserem nächsten Stoppover werden wir es sicherlich wieder buchen und auch jedem weiterempfehlen.
Great penthouse, very clean, very silent. Very nice contact to Penny. We will rent it again !
Penny was a great person to deal with. She was very responsive and helpful in working with us during the booking stage.
Coming up to our holiday, Penny also provided up to date emails and information to make our stay more enjoyable.
As for the apartment, it was terrific! 38 floors up and a fantastic view out over the mountains and the sea in the distance. The apartment was an older one but was still very well equipped, and was very close to the main street in Waikiki. We had a party of 5 (parents plus 3 grown kids) and still had lots of room to stretch out. The local area was very safe at all hours of the day and night and we never felt worried about our safety. We would definitely stay here again if we travelled back to Hawaii!
Penny was very helpful in answering any questions we had before we arrived in Hawaii. We were disappointed on arrival though. The penthouse has definitely seen better days and is in need of a serious overhaul. Small things that would make the stay more pleasant would be to replace the bed linen and in particular the blankets which actually had holes in them. The pillows also should have been replaced years ago. This wouldn't cost very much and would make such a difference to the guests. On our first day there the water was shut off for 4 hours however we weren't made aware of this and when we spoke to the on site manager were initially told that it was a problem that was isolated to the penthouse only so we started looking into calling a plumber in to fix it . We were later advised that it was work being carried out and the water had been shut off to a number of apartments. It would have been nice to have been made aware of this. On another night an alarm decided to go off in the unit. We didn't find out what it was about but it happened about 3.30 am and went on for some time.
Basically we had a lovely time in Hawaii because how could you not enjoy such a beautiful location but the photos on Airbnb do not match what the penthouse looks like today. I would suggest either updating the photos and overview or spending a bit of money on a refurbishment.
I booked this for friends coming from South America so I didn't actually stay here. The check-in was after hours (8:30pm) and had a bit of a scare because the security guard did not have the key. Turns out the management company representative was still on site because of a party, so she had to be found to give me the key, but she was expecting us so it went smoothly. Once inside, I wasn't sure how 3 grown men and 3 teenage boys were supposed sleep because there were only 3 real beds and the sofas were not pullout beds, but they are boys, so they made it work. Gorgeous views and the kitchen was big enough to store all the required snacks and breakfast foods needed, which is a big bonus.
A couple of downsides was that one of the two elevators was being serviced for most of the time and one of the metal cardkeys didn't work for the garage elevator so we had to get the security guard to use his. He told us we had to try and get it swapped out the next day.
The best part of this whole booking really was Penny. She was super, super responsive and helpful. She answered every one of my many questions with lots of detail and speed. She was great to work with.
