Guestbook comments from the manager

"Locals from Kailua who decided to play tourist for the month in Waikiki, while our house was being worked on. This was perfect for us. Loved that everything was within walking distance, especially the beach, aquarium & zoo! We ate out more then we should've but loved the variety, again within walking distance. Studio was large, nicely done with its own a/c, and CLEAN. The grounds are kept nice and clean too. Staff is helpful & friendly. We will come back for sure and recommend here for our family & friends. Mahalo and A Hui Hou!"

Affordable, comfortable, clean, and safe.

  • 5 of 5

The studio is located off the main thoroughfares of Waikiki and accessible by foot to all of the the area attractions. If you have a car, affordable, covered parking is available with public transportation being a few steps away. The building and accommodations are quaint, clean and well maintained. Wi-fi is free and has a strong signal. Jill and staff are pleasant and welcoming. If you are not used to a little city noise (the occasional car, passerby, etc.), you can close the windows and still be comfortable. I would recommend this place for those that are looking for an affordable and extending stay on Oahu. While the restaurants on the island are plentiful and world-class, I would take advantage of preparing meals in the studio. Thanks Jill.

We were disappointed in the appearance of the apartment and the building as a whole.

  • 3 of 5

We were expecting a better quality room and building for the amount of money we were paying. The sheets for the bed did not fit the bed and were torn. The bedskirt had several rips. The bathtub was not clean, and we were told to obtain some cleaning supplies to clean it. (We did!) The washer and dryer and area that housed them were not clean. We cleaned the washer and dryer before using. There were supposed to be three working appliances on different floors for washing our clothes, but only one was working. The best part of the stay was Martha! She was wonderful in trying to assist us in anyway possible. No, we will never stay in this place again. We thoroughly cleaned the apartment before we left...washing the towels and bedding, cleaning the shower and sink and refrigerator, microwave, etc. even washing the kitchen and bathroom floors. Yet, money was deducted from our deposit and we don't know why. Hopefully, we'll get an explanation soon. Robert and Linda Retzlaff

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and your feedback. We have our apartments cleaned before the tenants move in. The windows were left open to air out the apartment having a tenant leaving one day before the move in and the pollution dust came from the windows in the bathroom overnight we were not aware of. The cleaning lady would have cleaned furthermore if we would be learned the problem. We would never say to our tenants to buy the cleaning supplies and do it yourself instead. It was a misunderstanding about the cleaning. We do the cleaning ourselves after the tenant moves out. They don't have to do themselves. The deduction of the fees was the mandatory Transitional Accommodation Tax increase of 1% of Hawaii January 1st, 2018 . Thank you for the compliment about our onsite service. Hope we will do a better job next time around.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The studio unit was very spacious and clean - much larger.then a hotel room. It was nicely furnished and appointed with a comfortable bed, a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, great granite counter top, plates, pots and pans and cooking facilities. The building is in the heart of Waikiki, close to a supermarket, shopping and restaurants. Best of all, it is a short walk to famous Waikiki beach with its stunning sunsets and free nightly Hula show. Excellent value for the money.

Nice studio in strategic place at affordable price

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely at a strategic location in Waikiki. It is very near to the central beach of Waikiki and the bus stops. We had good internet connection and there's an extra walk-in closet with drawers where you can keep clothes, place your baggage, or surf gear. We didn't need to use the air conditioner, as the ceiling fans and windows provided for a nice constant breeze. The place was well maintained and clean (although the age of the building does show), and overall is a very good deal in terms of costs and the facilities it offers. The one thing that took getting used to is the night-time noise of Waikiki, but this is an acceptable trade-off for such a strategically located place. In comparison to some of the negative comments that we read before staying in this apartment, there appears to have been lots of improvement. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this to those looking for affordable, central accommodation for longer stays.

Best Value In Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

I live in Waikiki and can say for certain that you will not find a better deal than the Whale Watcher for your Hawaii vacation. Recently, my Dad came for a three month visit and stayed here. The room was spacious (huge walk in closet too), well appointed and had a very comfortable bed. The location is perfect.It is dead center Waikiki, close to every amenity,one block away from every major bus route in this city and best of all, only 10 minutes walk from the beach! The ladies who run the place are friendly, efficient and always helpful. The street itself is busy as is every street in Waikiki, so you will encounter activity on the outside. Inside though, the building is very tranquil and clean. I would not hesitate to rent here again for any of my future visitors.
