I was a little skeptical at first, but after getting to the location and the very warm welcome, I was very satisfied with the place. It was close or a reasonable distance to all the locations we wanted to go to and the advice that we got from Susan was very valuable.
The location as okay. Felt safe to walk at anytime. I would consider a rental car for part of your stay but there is bus service at the door and taxis or uber are available at a reasonable price. We took the bus to Pearl Harbour and the whole trip cost us $2 as there are free tickets at the site. Tours for this sell at $60 ++.
Susanne is excellent host and was always there to answer any questions. unit was very clean and comfortable for 3 couples.
We looked for a long time at places to stay and this one fit all of our needs. It was conveniently located to everything we were visiting. Though we never went to the beach from here, it was close to the downtown area and highways to get to other areas. We were alitte worried when we turned off the main road to get to the duplex, but it was fine once you got back to the duplex as it was tucked away. We just thought it was in a subdivision so we were concerned, but there was no reason for concern, area was safe and quiet! The duplex itself was nicely laid out for two couples, nicely furnished and all the amenities you need. We were happy with our choice. Both Jennifer and Suzanne were helpful and it was nice that one lived right next door to the duplex. That was comforting in itself. There were people in the lower duplex, but we never heard them. Since this unit is upstairs, there are a lot of steps to take all your belongings up to the unit, but that wasn't a problem for us. The only negative was the parking, there was always a spot for us, but since it is a deadend street, we had to back out each time we left. We were happy with our choice and would recommend this to anyone considering it.
We were pleasantly surprised to find such a place to stay in Honolulu. Jennifer and Suzanne made us felt welcomed and took great care of us during our stay at their property. It was a comfortable, relaxing place which suited all our needs perfectly. Our cook was happy with the well equipped kitchen. Our movie buff was entertained by the available Netflix on the internet enabled flat screen TV. Our beach bums took advantage of the beach towels, pool shoes, and snorkeling gear. Available parking was great for us and when our friends visited. This was an excellent base for us since it was close to everywhere we wanted to go: Waikiki hotels and beaches, Kapiolani Blvd and Ala Moana Mall stores, local Hawaiian restaurants, and Pearl Harbor.
