I am more than pleased with my stay at Lia’s. Finding the assigned parking space was easy due to every space being numbered. Lia greeted us in the parking lot and took us up to the apartment. When we arrived the apartment was very clean and Lia quickly went over instructions for the place. At first, I was a bit hesitant to book a place without A/C as I’m from Texas, and it’s a must there. However, having two balconies gave a nice breeze through the day and night. The apartment was equipped with everything we need and even more that was not expected but a big plus (beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, coolers, etc). Lia was available and responded to my questions promptly. She was very welcoming and her homemade granola was delicious! We truly felt welcomed. I would book again!

Aloha, Gabriela & Brook. Glad you had a great stay. We try to make our place a home-away-from-home, equipping it with as many comforts of home as possible. I also appreciate your feedback on the granola. Thanks, again, for staying with us and hope to see you again.

Lia’s place is amazing. Everything in it is new and clean. The location is perfect, close to the beach and downtown Waikiki. I watched amazing sunsets from the balcony, it is on a high floor with views of Diamond Head. Lia was available to take my belongings before the room was ready and kindly called me to let me know that I had left something’s behind when I checked out. I would highly recommend staying here and I look forward to coming back.

Excellent little gem we found. You can tell the owners put a lot of effort and love into making their studio one of a kind. The renovations and decor were amazing. Having 2 balconies was awesome and gave a great breeze and tremendous view. The location on kuhio was excellent. It's next to so many cool Waikiki spots and very central. The communication with Lia and her husband was excellent. They were very proactive and responsive. They are a lovely couple and provided excellent service. I would totally stay with them again!!!!!!!

This condo is beautiful, well-appointed and located in the heart of Waikiki. It had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. 2 lanais with cross breeze and great views of water, mountain and city. Walkable neighborhood close to beach, shopping, restaurants and Diamond Head. It was a great value. Fantastic, warm host Lia was helpful and good with communication. Highly recommend and we'll be back.
