We had a great stay at Peter’s property in Kuhio Tower. The unit has proximity to the beach, shopping, restaurants and shuttle pick ups to area attractions. The unit has everything you need for the beach-towels, boards and chairs. The basic kitchen area was very adequate for our needs. Peter stayed in contact with us and was quick to answer any questions we had. We recommend this place and would stay again if we returned to Oahu.

Peter was an amazing host throughout our entire stay, was available at anytime if needed. The room has everything you need and more. I enjoyed the location of the property because it was close to everything. Parking available too within reasonable distance if you don’t want to park on the property. Overall it was an outstanding experience and I would definitely recommend to friends and family. I also look forward to choosing there property again. Mahalo!!

Tastefully remodeled studio in older building located a couple of short blocks from the best beaches in Waikiki and the best restaurants, shopping and bars a short stroll away. Lots of cabinets both in kitchen and bathroom wardrobe area. Has a balcony facing condo building courtyards and parking. Building has good security measures. Would definitely stay again.

The unit was clean and in a very good location, the bed was very comfortable. It is within walking distance to most attractions and resturants. We had a car and parked close bye at Banyan Parking garage. The bus stop is right accross the road and there are several food trucks close by. The unit itself was a little dated and would probably need an update soon but overall was clean, central and suited us fine. Would stay here again

Great location. Easy to get anywhere by foot! Just a few blocks to the beach! Peter was easy to get ahold of. He was great to work with and very very helpful. Always got back to me. Thanks Peter

The apartment was very clean and stocked with everything you would need. We especially appreciated the fact that there were beach towels for our use. The only thing I could suggest to improve the stay would be good instructions on using the television. We were unable to get the tv to work. We were just a few blocks from the beach and all of the restaurants and shopping.

Location is only two blocks off the beach and within walking distance to everything in Waikiki. The unit is very clean and had comfortable beds for everyone. Owner goes out of their way to ensure you have a great stay.

The property was exactly as pictured. Communication with Peter was very easy. The room was small but we really only needed a place to sleep as we did not spend much other time there. Bed was comfortable. Our stay included everything we needed for the two of us. The only draw back is the parking. It can be challenging and if you find a spot in the basement lot, there are no in and out privileges. Keep that in mind when paying for your parking pass. The place is within walking distance to most everything you would need though. We would recommend this property.

Staying here allowed us to not need to rent a car (or find parking). We were 3 minutes from Waikiki Beach and we watched the sunrise on the beach a couple times. The room was quiet and clean. The A/C worked well. We loved either cooking or getting breakfast and bringing it to our lanai/balcony and eating breakfast in a the cool morning breeze. Peter was a great host!

Aaron was helpful and always responsive when needed. The condo was abundantly stocked that we never had to worry about running out of necessities. The parking space for our minivan was initially a concern, but once we became accustomed to it, it was no problem. Having a parking space in Waikiki is always a definite plus! The condo is in walking distance to many things and only a block away from the beach! This was my nephews' first experience in Hawaii and they did not want to leave. Thank you for the ease of checking in/out and a wonderful stay at a home away from home!

August 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very clean. Very good communication and directions for check-in and check-out. It was close to everything. Would definitely stay here again!

Amazing location - we could walk to the beaches and restaurants. The kitchen let us prep meals at home, which was fantastic. It was clean and ready, and the manager Peter was wonderful - very responsive and friendly. There was no problem getting in or with anything we needed. A few things: the building is old and run down - from the outside I was a little worried. While there is a security desk, in the 9 days there I only saw someone at it once, so if that's important to you, know it's not really used. The building is sort of security, but people did walk in and jump in elevators that were already open (you need a fob to open the elevator in the lobby and to ride up, but not down). There is no laundry facility available here, contrary to the pictures. The one that was attached to the building closed in April 2023. The main downside for us was the furniture, which for us was uncomfortable. The mattress is very hard and felt old, and same for the pillows. The chairs for the dining table and patio were not comfortable, and the lighting in the apartment is very minimal, with no light over the table. The patio is tiny, and if you're spending a lot of time in the water like we did and you hang wet things over the chairs, there's no place to sit or stand outside. Hanging wet things on the shower rod just knocks it down since it's pressure mounted. Overall it was totally fine for our needs but not amazing.

The condo was well stocked. We appreciated having coffee, creamers and sugar so we didn’t have to worry about getting it ourselves. We had plenty of towels, paper products and bath supplies. The space was small for us. We did have a teenager on the cot and she said it was fine. The space was clean.

Highly recommend! Everything we needed was within walking distance. Peter was an exception, responsive host with a great attitude! Loved having the beach chairs to take with us to the beach. Would absolutely stay again…perfect of the two of us!

July 2023

We had a great time! Here’s my honest review. The Pros-The unit itself is newly renovated and beautifully decorated. The A/Cs work great, the unit was very clean, the bathrooms are spacious and all 6 of us had hot water for every shower! We only had one key and Management was very quick to respond and get more to us. The location of the building is only a couple of short blocks from the beach and close to anything you may need. The unit has a Keurig coffee maker. Now for the Cons- the building’s elevator is terrible. It’s slow, small, creepy and one is always broken. (The elevator was the worst part of our stay) If you come with a car- the garage has a very tight entrance, low ceiling and very tight parking- we barely got in with our minivan-no larger vehicle would make it. The listing has washer/dryer listed in amenities but the unit doesn’t have one-there’s a laundry room on the 3rd floor -you have to load a special card or load an app to pay- very inconvenient. The street activity around the building was a bit sketchy- people doing drugs and selling drugs. I definitely wouldn’t go out alone- it is a big city after all. We always appreciate our starter packs but adding a dish sponge and coffee for the first morning with a few fixings would be a nice touch. Keurig cups were hard to find in the area- an additional standard coffee pot would be a great addition also. Overall we had a great stay.

Super close to Waikiki. Lots of stores & food nearby. Simple condo. Kitchenette had basic kitchen supplies. Comfy bed. Beach stuff: pool float, chairs, beach umbrella, sand toys. Will stay again.

July 2023

This rental was absolutely perfect for our Hawaii vacation! Plenty of space, very well equipped with everything we needed including paper towels, soap, plenty of towels, extra blankets and bedding, with extras: beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella which were VERY appreciated and even laundry detergent (!). There is a great laundry on the 3rd floor, very helpful since we did get dirty traveling around the island. Location is central to everything, we could walk to tons of shops and restaurants and Lyfts come within minutes. Beds were very comfortable and the ac units worked great! Felt very safe, the key fob is required to enter the property. Also lots of kitchen amenities, we were able to cook and there were even coffee filters for us. Owner checked in on us several times, communications were detailed and organized. Loved every minute of our trip, so happy we found this gem of a place. Thank you to the owners for making our trip truly perfect!

Great location and great setup for a family. We looked forward to coming back after excursions and exploring to one of the best VRBO’s in Waikiki. Would definitely stay again!

TV in second bedroom non functional. Would have been nice to have a box of kleenex, no hangars in closet and one elevator out of order. Air condition units were hard to figure out.

This property was a 5 minute walk to Waikiki beach. An ABC store is on the same block so you can easily get water and groceries. Food trucks across the street with Shrimp, Hawaiian style hot dogs, Poke and rolled ice cream super convenient. Coffee spot also open from 7-2. If you are on a budget and want a quick, cheap meal, McD’s a few blocks down the street along with Starbucks, breakfast spots, shopping. Rentals of beach equipment (surfboards, etc) also conveniently located. Bus stop across the street. you can buy a pass at the ABC store. Bus only $2.50/trip. Avid walkers will enjoy 4 mile RT walk to Diamond Head beach, a great surf spot away from the tourists.

The inside and accommodations are amazing. The outside had me scared to even go in initially. Property owner can’t help that. But when you walk in it looks like a place a millionaire owns when he visits. Wow beautiful place!

This was a nice location with easy access to public transportation throughout island and nearby parking available within 2 blocks to walk to Waikiki beach, restaurants and shopping.

We stayed 5 nights at this condo in May 2023. It had absolutely everything we needed and we especially enjoyed having a beach umbrella to use for our time spent on the water. Beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were very spacious and nice. No problems at all checking in or out and we loved having a parking garage for our rental car. Overall a great stay and I would rent this place again in the future.

May 2023

Property was perfect for our family of 5. Really liked being 2 short blocks from sand and crowds. We only experienced slight noise with the sliding doors closed with A/C on but was not overwhelming and any property in that area would experience the same. Views were good off the lanais. With having the kitchen and overall extra square footage, it was more comfortable than a normal hotel room.

Property is super clean, all new appliances, super bright when the drapes are left up. Everything is super close by if not its only a 15 min drive. 2 blocks to the beach, amazing places to eat around the neighborhhod.

The apartment is as described, clean and functional. It’s very nice because you are very close to Waikiki beach and shops. I recommend this place especially because it’s affordable for Waikiki areas. The property manager was quick to answer and the instructions to have the fob were very clear.

It was the perfect size for just me and my husband, and was near everything, the host was very detailed on the instructions and I was able to check in and check out very swiftly. He is awesome! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

This property is as perfect for what we were needing for our trip to Oahu. Like the other reviews it’s very quiet inside the room. The A/C worked very nicely in keeping our room cool for sleeping. Of course it’s Hawaii and there’s no point in hanging out around during the day unless you’re sleeping in which is likely because the bed was comfortable. The fridge and microwave are awesome add ins and nicely sized. We didn’t need to cook top. Bathroom was roomy for two. The shower was warm right from the start. Good pressure too. Lots of things to do in immediate vicinity, There’s an ABC store a hundred yards away and they have most anything you’ll need. We liked our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to return should the chance come up again for a stay in Oahu. You can’t go wrong by staying here.

The unit was just as shown. The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and in good working order. Peter, our host was phenomenal! Very accommodating and easy to reach by phone and email. We recommend this unit as a nice, affordable place to stay.

It’s a clean and nice condo! Plenty of amenities that you can use, and just 3min walk to beach. Rooms are not so spacious. 2 queen bed, 1 sofa bed and 1 extra bed were enough for us 6 adults and 2 kids though. Maybe a little difficult for a family who has baby/infant because elevators are small which might be tight for strollers. ABC store is right around the corner. There are big hotels around that makes us easier to catch a shuttle for tour. The host is very nice. Always quick response. We were satisfied with staying here.
