This place was amazing! I thought I was just booking a cheap hostel that looked nice online, but upon entering I was shocked at how nice it was. The 1 bedroom apt is super-spacious with super high ceilings w chandelier, grand piano in living room, French balcony overlooking the street, 2 separate bathroom sinks (1 for toilet, and 1 for shower). Hawaii, the host is amazing. She gives you a fantastic orientation upon arrival. She gives you a map and circles the closest ATM/groc store etc. and helps with honest restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. She even put a fresh half gallon of milk in the fridge in case I like milk in my coffee. Hawaii and the staff do a very good job organizing the night time activities and even made sure I knew how to get home when she would leave. Hawaii was more helpful/friendly than any host I have encountered and is better than a 5-star hotel's concierge. I participated in most of the night time activities but slept like a baby each night in this beautiful place, not being awoken by any extraneous noise. I often am traveling for 8 weeks a year and am often traveling solo to medical conferences. I have stayed at many 5 star hotels. I had a much more enjoyable stay renting the 1 br apt here, than I would have staying at a 5 star hotel.
The only negatives I could think of:
1. Ugly building façade from street
2. No drip coffeemaker (instant only)
3. Shower is handheld only (not fixed at higher height)
