This was one of my favourite Airbnbs by far! Twu picked me up from the airport early in the morning and let me check in early which was a blessing after a ten hour flight!
The apartment is literally two blocks back from Waikiki Beach and there are plenty of great local and holiday places to eat. I recommend Pacific Garlic Shrimp, Me's BBQ, Hi Steaks and the Blue Ocean Seafood bus for the local places. The condo itself is very cosy and perfect for either a long or short stay. The bed was comfortable, the wifi is quick, the shower was nice and hot and Twu stocked the fridge with some food and drinks. The aircon worked perfectly and from the balcony you can see the ocean!
The building itself is secure and you can buy a prepaid sim card for $40 from the downstairs phone store and the building is lucky enough to have the only 24hr grocery store in Waikiki! Very handy for early morning hike snack shopping.
If you need to catch the bus there are stops just across Kuhio Ave near the Hilton Waikiki Beach that can take you anywhere you need to go. But everything is practically within walking distance except for downtown Honolulu.
Twu was a very kind and generous host. He kept in contact with me the entire time and offered to take me on sunrise hikes which I accepted on one occasion. You won't regret it! Beautiful views over Hanauma Bay at sunrise. He lent me his snorkeling gear and there were plenty of toiletries in the bathroom cupboard as well as kitchen supplies if you wanted to eat in.
I loved this place so much that I was very sad to go. I will definitely stay here again when I go back to Honolulu. I felt like a local and Twu made me feel comfortable and looked after.
Great location to Waikiki beach!! Very helpful host - provided USA mobile phone for free use. Aircon was a lifesaver!
Twu was a great host. He invited on some AM hikes. I was able to attend one.
The apt is great for solo and couple travelers. It's in a quiet location on Waikiki. There are a lot of restaurants and ABC stores in the vicinity. Also, the apt building has a laundromat and a grocery store on the ground floor. The apt has everything you need.
I would stay again here when i return to Oahu.
My bf and I had a great time in Hawaii! The place was a lot smaller than it looked in the photos but it was still perfect. We didn't need anything too fancy since we only went there to sleep. The host kept in touch at all times too.
Twu was a great host! Answered messages promptly and offered to take us on hikes but unfortunately our schedules didn't match. The condo itself was decent, great location and clean. It was small, but for purposes of just going there to sleep it was great for the price. Twu got us a $10 parking pass but you do risk not getting a spot if you return home too late (past 10pm) as there are only around 30 spots for two buildings. Some nearby metered and free parking in that case if you're lucky. Twu also bought for us a brand new water kettle when we inquired about it prior to the trip, and brought us extra bowls and an extension cord!
The studio is conveniently located two blocks from the Waikiki beach and surrounded by all the restaurants and supermarkets. This place has everything you need for your stay, even a simple kitchen if you like to cook something. Having laundry in the building was very helpful as well.
Twu is a great host! Gave us all necessary recommendations and even took us to watch sunrise on the beautiful beach.
Twu is very hospitable and kind. If your on a budget you will not regret going with his place. I highly recommend it.
awesome place, my friend had a wonderful time staying here
Twu was an excellent host! Twu is very friendly and responded quickly to any queries we had. My boyfriend and I had a great time in Wakiki staying at his condo. The place was clean and had everything we needed.
The condo is very central and is surrounded by ABC stores and restaurants. We especially recommend trying the veggie spring rolls (and cheap cocktails) at Keoni by Keo's, which is only 2 blocks away.
If you are attending a conference at the convention center, Twu's place is also perfect. I either took a bus ( 5-10 minutes), but mostly walked (25-30 minutes) to the convention center.
Twu also took us on a sunrise hike, which was absolutely incredible and took us to the beautiful Mermaid cave. We had an absolutely fantastic time, definitely recommend Twu's place and would stay again.
Everything is great. Especially Location is fantastic. Convenience store, good restaurants, Waikiki beach etc. highly recommended.
I would say that I got really lucky with staying at Two Yong's place. I've never been to Hawai'i and had no plans on how to even get around and what to see. He was eager to share his knowledge of the beautiful island and with him I got to go on hikes and saw things I would not have if he was not the person I stayed with. I was on a budget and it really helped that he shared his food, had free breakfast and even took me to the airport! (that's a 50 dollar cab ride right there that I saved). All in all, I highly recommend staying here. It will be good for you, your pocket and your adventurous self :)
I am glad I met Twu Yong after moving to Hawaii. He is a sincere person and a great friend who embodies the true meaning of the aloha spirit. He is also very fit and stays active. Ask him about taking you on a guided hike.
