Suited us perfectly.
We only had 4 of the 5 of us, so this fit us perfectly. We stayed Aug 1-Aug 8, 2016. Because there was no one before us, Gene allowed us to check in upon arrival in Waikiki. Also since there was no one rt behind us, we were allowed to stay as long as we needed on our check out day. Our 10 and 12 year olds either shared a queen bed, or one slept on the coach (not a fold out but comfy). The kitchen was very well appointed with tons of cookware and essentials, plus lots of extras like baggies, spices, coffee, coffee filters. The bedrooms are bigger than the site shows and the living space is a bit smaller than the pics show. I am a very uncomfortable sleeper, and the beds were great. Lots of extra pillows and bath towels in the closets. The A/C is in the bedrooms only, but easily cools off the whole house with bedroom doors left open. Each unit can be set to suit that rooms occupants.The washer and dryer are a must for us. They are outside in the patio area but that was not a problem. Detergent was provided as well. I will agree that the place is not much to look at from the outside, but the inside is really quite lovely. 3-5 min walk to groceries and the ABC store. Eateries all over the place, within same distance- Burger King to high end. Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is inside The Food Pantry, 5 mins away. No Starbucks. Just a bit longer to get to Luxury Row and the night life. Nice and quite. Only downside that I hope is updated for future guest is that there were only 2 beach towels and 2 old, basic and low-sitting beach chairs. I suggested in a note left behind that updated and multiple chairs, umbrellas, more towels, and a rolling ice chest would be appreciated for guest use. It would have made the beach trips more comfortable. We would have purchased one but no local stores had more than a styrofoam cooler. Had we located Walmart earlier in our visit, we may have found one there, and would have left it. Oh there was no extra toilet paper. Probably just an oversight. Overall, we had a great stay. Our kids loved getting up and going outside to catch some of the little local lizards. They are beautiful. We did not use the BBQ, but it would be a nice space to have dinner outside and invite guests. We had no issues, so did not need to call Gene or Pete, but Gene was always quick to respond to my calls and texts leading up to our stay and during our stay. We would recommend for a clean, quite, comfortable, convenient ho
