weekly photo challenge: perspective…

City View. That’s what the ad said for this Waikiki condo. More like a View of the parking lot. Don’t you think?IMG_4456








Romantic seating for two. Or standing room only???IMG_4457










A scenic view. More like a Value-less view.IMG_4459










The owner of this Waikiki condo was excited for me to be the first to review it after my family’s visit of several days. I didn’t have the heart to give her my honest opinion.

…she had her perspective…i had mine…

    • In addition to the obvious surprises, there were hidden ones as well. A light switch in the linen/supplies closet was hanging away from the wall, a little. When I flipped the switch, there were sparks. Yikes! I never fooled with it again. The last couple of days we were in the unit, we discovered that the a/c had a leak. When it kicked on, the nearby carpet became damp. We had to lay towels over the spot. The owner lived on the mainland, and I didn’t want to have to deal with the woman assigned to watch the condo. I think she was just the cleaning woman anyway.


  1. Oh how I feel for you! My heart used to sink when we’d get to our hotel room with this kind of view. Now I tell my husband not to touch anything, and I call down to see if we can get a change! With a condo, I guess you were staying.


    • I’m with you. If a room has issues…the smell of smoke when we requested non-smoking…there are plumbing issues…the view is problematic…I have no qualms requesting a change. Of course I hate confrontations. However, I like to make sure I get what I paid for. Sometimes one has to be…a squeaky wheel. You’re right, though. When we rent from an owner, photos can, and have, misled.


hugs for sharing some brief thoughts...and keeping them positive
