My place is close to art and culture, restaurants and dining, parks, the city center, great views, and the reason most people want to come here for...the beach. You’ll love my place because of the coziness of the apartment itself and the location as far as proximity to things. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Please read on about the details concerning my place......
Im quite literally almost in the center of Honolulu proper its a 15 minute walk to Waikiki (bout 8 minutes by car) and another 15 to 20 minutes on foot going the opposite direction(bout 10 minutes by car) to be in the heart of the downtown/business district and Chinatown. The Ala Moana Mall the largest open air mall in the world and the 7th largest mall in the US is a 5 minute walk away, as is the Food Land grocery store and Walmart, Safeway is a 10 minute walk away, major bus lines are a block away as is the Honolulu Design Center. The Blaisdell Arena which houses most of Hawaiis major concerts is 10 minutes on foot as is the Ward Theater complex. Ala Moana beach and beach park is only an 8 minute walk. The apartment itself has plenty of extra towels and toiletries for your use including shampoo/conditioner etc, guests are welcome to cook if they wish I've got dishware and cooking utensils at your disposal. Guests are also welcome to use the fridge to store food items. I have a state of the art Kangen Water filtration system that I'm happy to share with my guests as well and an Anespa filter in the Shower which adds special minerals to the water that are great for the skin. Theres a Microwave and a toaster. Condiments, coffee, and Tea are available for use too. Don't have television or cable but WiFi is here. Pulling from my interior design skills I wanted to create a space thats both comfortable/homey but with a sophisticated and sometimes fun quirky edge. The apartment isn't very big but its ideal for a single traveler and can comfortably accommodate couples as well, the space is efficiently designed to maximize the area of the apartment present. The only thing i can say about my place that might not sit well with everyone is that it sits along a busy street so car noise is a pretty regular thing, living in urban areas a good portion of my life it doesn't phase me but to help minimize the sounds i provide a window AC unit to drown out some of the street sounds and of course cool you down too. I love using essential oils such as lavender and peppermint both for cleaning, pest control and providing a pleasant natural scent to the space but i realize not everyone is crazy about herbal style aromas. The building itself is very plain and unassuming to some it might even appear a bit run down but by hawaii standards its fairly clean and presentable. Also the floors here are tile but the tile is chipped and a bit beat up in places I mention this because I've had guests dock me points on cleanliness because they thought the floors were dirty, i make it a point to sweep and mop the entire floor area after each guest has left so my floors are clean and since i renting my unit and don't own it i don't have leeway to replace the flooring with new tiles it is what it is.
Zugang für Gäste
My guests have full reign of the entire apartment except for my bedroom while I'm around. So all of the common areas are there for everyones enjoyment, the living/dining room area, the kitchen, the bathroom and of course the room they will be staying in. In the occasional event that I'm out of town on a trip I'm happy to rent out the entire apartment at an adjusted rate but also upon request if your looking for a place that you would ideally want entirely to yourself during your stay that can be arranged, this would come in handy for a small family of travelers, couples on honey moon or anniversary or even someone who prefers to keep to themselves and wants an emphasis on privacy, feel free to inquire about my adjusted rates to rent out the entire space :)
Interaktion mit Gästen
Im an easy going guy and don't have any issue socializing with my guests when the moments present themselves but I'm also keen on giving people their space as well, typically when I'm home i ll hang out in my room but I'm more than happy to answer questions and offer advice on things to do, places to go or avoid, and if I have the free time I enjoy playing tour guide if you want someone to show you around the island. I work as a photographer both for a company and free lance as well so if your interested in having some photo work done while on your trip Hawaii is one of the better places on the planet to get that done feel free to ask me for more details on that service.

The most important thing to mention is use of the air conditioner in the guest room please try to limit your use of it for when your ready to go to bed. Also on another note if you wish to use the coffee maker be sure to turn it off as well once your pot has been brewed. The building I live in has some older residents staying here so its important to keep any noise down to a reasonable level particularly at night between 10pm and 8am, granted as i said before the building sits along a busy street but the residents here are still a bit finicky when it comes to noise made by the neighbors i got this info from one of the other tenants i was chatting with. I haven't had any complaints from my neighbors yet but I'm big on being respectful of others as much as possible. If your easy going and low key you shouldn't have any issues.

Just to reiterate but my one primary request is that the Air Conditioner in the room be turned off once my guests are ready to leave the apartment to go exploring, this includes any other electrical appliances such as lights, fans, etc. And for those who want to use the coffee maker be sure to turn off the button to the hotplate once your pot has been brewed, thank you for your consideration, or as we say in Hawaii, Mahalo for your Kokua, (which means thanks for your help:)
