The secure building has a large swimming pool and BBQ area. We also provide beach towels, beach chairs and lite weight cooler. No smoking please.

It's the perfect Honolulu hideaway, centrally located yet a short distance away from everything !

It's close to the world famous Ala Moana Beach Park and Shopping Center. Just a 5 minute drive to Waikiki or take advantage of our great public transportation system to get you anywhere on the island. Even if you are here for work, you couldn't ask for a nicer retreat to come home to. We are sorry but house rules do not allow less than a 10 day stay.

I'd rent again

Clean, good location. Great views from the balcony including Diamond head, the Ocean and the waterfront fireworks on 2 nights a week

Best value that we found. This was our second time to stay with Vic.

Great BBQ in the pool area. Very helpful friendly manager

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at Vic and Karla's property, and we couldn't have asked for more. Vic met us at the condo on our arrival, and he and Karla and their booking agent made the transactions smooth and easy. The condo is in in a quiet, secure, well maintained building, and Johanna, the building manager, is lovely. The apartment was clean, beautifully decorated, the bed was comfy, the condo had all the amenities, and we felt right at home. The wifi was a great bonus. We looked forward, after a day of shopping, touring, or going to the beach to being able to come back to the place, sit on the lanai, put our feet up, drink a glass of iced tea, and watch the neighbourhood activities and the twinkling lights on the buildings as night fell. On Friday nights we'd watch the fireworks over Waikiki from the lanai. There is a really good Korean Barbecue restaurant on the no.18 bus route, and there are other places to eat, but we were content to have lunches out, and eat our dinners at the condo. The bus routes are close and convenient. We had some great conversations with locals while waiting on the busses to arrive. We bought a one month bus pass and hopped on and off as much as we liked. Safeway is close for groceries. There is plenty of space in the condo for two people, and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a home away from home while in Honolulu. We loved it, recommend it, and would book it again in a heartbeat.

Cozy, Great location &felt like Home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I Love it. Great area you right by Fwy so all you have to do hop on Fwy &go where you need to go. It was very comfortable and after a few days we were saying let's go Home. Because it Honestly feels like Home after a few days. Great view of the city. Vic &Karla have everything you need in the kitchen. They very sweet and understanding. My flight was about 1hr.late& still had to go get rental car. So needless to say I was very late. But Karla didn't make us feel bad at all &she was still very nice& We Appreciate that! Especially since we did feel bad. We enjoyed our stay in Hawaii So much& we do it again in a heartbeat. We wouldn't change anything.

Thanks again

Comfortable, attractive and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This studio is just as described. It has been thoughtfully and attractively appointed, with everything you might need. The entire property was clean and well-maintained. The location was excellent for getting to meetings in the Ala Moana area, as well as for escaping to many other parts of the island. Our host, Vic, was welcoming and helpful when we arrived. Having free parking and laundry saved money and hassle for our 10 night stay! The lanai was awesome, we never needed AC with the breezes and the wi-fi worked well. We would definitely stay here again if we needed to be in Honolulu and would happily recommend it!

Clean and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

It was late at night when we arrived by taxi but Vic was there with his lantern to guide us in and give us a friendly island Aloha and a quick orientation to our home- away- from- home for the next two weeks. The bus system is excellent and with a bus stop out the front door, we downloaded TheBus app and experienced a lot of the surrounding area. Waikiki is only 23 minutes by bus and or even by a manageable good walk. The Safeway is close by, we walked many times but also used UberX when we had a load of groceries … another great app to have.

We were glad to be apart from the busy, very touristy Waikiki area and spent most nights having supper on our balcony watching the sun go down and people walking their dogs. We did rent a car for the last five days, took the bus to the airport to pick it up of course, and went to many places on the North, Windward and West sides of the island. It was very convenient to have a parking spot at the apartment, a well-stocked kitchen and to be able to do laundry in the apartment. Vic was available by cell phone and responded very quickly.

It was a very memorable time for our 40th anniversary.
