Best things about the condo:
1. Very easy walk to various restaurants, shopping (cheap to upscale stores), major tourist attractions like Waikiki Beach to name a few.
2. Beautiful views of the canal, the hills, even part of Diamond Head Crater from the 2 bedrooms & balcony.
3. Very clean.
4. Well-equipped kitchen although we did not cook by choice. It also has a good-sized & efficient washer & dryer even though its the stackable one. We had everything we needed.
5. Free parking in a covered garage in same building.
6. Size was perfect for the 3 of us (all adults) but it can accommodate up to 5-6 persons (somewhat tightly).
7. Newly renovated/updated.
8. Has AC & ceiling fans to keep unit comfortable if needed.
9. Responsive owners; we asked for good places to get groceries and good eats which they sent.
Cons: My husband & I used the BR w/ ensuite bath. We found the mattress to be not that comfortable; not sure if its due to age/old mattress (?) . My sister who was in the front room had no complaint on the mattress.
Traffic noise can be a nuisance only if you open the windows in the back BR w/ ensuite bath. It did not bother us at night; kept windows shut.
Tight space in parking garage but not surprised by it being in the city center. We were glad we had free parking.
Mahalo, Jane for your hospitality.
Wow! I can’t say enough wonderful things. Jane was amazing. Super attentive.
Place was spectacular. And super close to everything. We walked around every night. Can’t wait to go back!!
Beautiful, clean condo in the heart of Waikiki! Loved the view from the patio and the space that was available. Easy access to dining and shopping . Will definitely book again in the future
Enjoyed every morning the sunsets.. when convenient location close to downtown.
Great location, incredibly helpful contact / Owner. The bathreems were a lille small. Overall very enjoyable stay.
Our family flew in from the Mainland and Maui for just a few days for a family funeral, and Jane's unit was perfect for our needs. It was very quiet, clean, and very well-equipped and furnished. And having on-site parking such a bonus! The morning view of the Ala Wai and inland valleys was a spectacular way to greet the day, and we enjoyed having a cup of coffee on the lanai while watching Honolulu begin to "wake up."
The owner was very communicative with us. The place is perfect, clean and well outfitted. There are beach towels and chairs in the closet. The addition of a parking spot was a plus. The location was great to get to UH and the beach. We would stay again for sure on our next trip to visit our daughter.
Great Location, within walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants.
This condo is very cute and cozy, and has an amazing view. However - there were several roaches in the kitchen.. the AC unit in the Main Bedroom was EXTREMELY loud (rattling/ wind howling when it was not on), the windows are shutter plate glass windows and all the sounds comes into the condo.. Also, it is a non smoking building but the hallways/garage REEKED of cigarette smoke. It was within walking distance of the beach, shopping, and many resturants which was nice. Just did not get much rest due to the constant traffic and ambulances driving by all night.
Great property, location and experience!
Firstly, we commend Jane for being such a wonderful and empathetic host. She was so generous and kind when we had a flight cancelation and time change.
The condo was perfectly located in Waikiki. The corner unit had excellent outdoor space for the three of us. The canal, golf course, Diamondhead and mountain views were spectacular and even more so with an abundance of rainbows.
All the appliances worked well. There was dish soap, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, liquid hand soap, paper towels, tin foil, plastic wrap, and more to use for our entire stay. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking with good pots and frying pans. There was a generous amount of dishes.
The three A/C units worked well at night. They were not needed in the daytime as there was excellent airflow when the sliders and windows were open. The triple glazing helped keep the condo quiet at night.
The beds were soft and comfy and the bathrooms were spotless.
The shared rooftop space had excellent seating, a heated pool, and several BBQs with all the utensils needed to make a great meal. There was some ocean views as well as mountain views.
Our three weeks in Jane's condo went by way to fast! When we return to Waikiki, we hope to rent Jane's place again.
This is a very nice condo located in Walkiki. It overlooks the canal and is a short walk to the ocean. There is parking and buses are within walking distance. The unit had all appliances, dishes and utensils that we needed. There are chairs, towels and a cooler for a trip to the beach. The top of the building is great. The views are great, there is a pool, chairs and bbq’s. There was an issue with the intercom system but Jane had emailed us and had her son meet us there when we arrived to facilitate our entry. Very good service. We would stay here again.
Great location. Walking distance to everything we needed.
Very easy to get in and out. The condo was very clean with lots of nice amenities. Close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and tour pick up locations. I highly recommend this property.
The condo at first glace is nice. We booked in March for a September stay. A day or 2 before check-inn, host messaged me that they have roaches in the building. 😔When we arrived, indeed we saw a few of them in the kitchen sink and so many ants around the sink. We kept all our things in the luggages closed …. Kept all the foid( even chips) in the fridge.. The pool was closed… Having a pool was one of our criterias so we were disappointed. The place needs some love. Good curtains are needed in the bedroom facing the balcony, as light goes trough at 6am. Also it gets so hot in room. The air conditioning are old and very noisy. Two of the beach chairs are rusted and broken. Besides this, the place is very well located. Less then 10 min walk to Waikiki beach. Amazing view from the balcony. Wonderful terrace on roof with BBQ, fire pit… place is well equipped with towels, beach towels, cooler, dishes. Beds are comfortable.
The property was exactly as described and we had more than enough to see and do nearby. The beach chairs and additional equipment made our stay simple.
Great location and nice view! We loved our week here and have many dear memories. Had a minor check-in error, and a few sirens in the night, but otherwise no problems. The property is well-equipped - it was great having laundry inside, and beach equipment (snorkel stuff, chairs, umbrella...)
Jane was great as a host. The place is walking distant to restaurants and shopping area. Parking can be a challenge but it was great to get a space as part of the rental. Place had everything you needed even beach chairs and umbrella. Very nice BBQ on the rooftop.
Everything I expected. The location is good. The views are beautiful. Although there is air conditioning the breeze, even in August, felt perfect. Our family of four enjoyed the large patio. The apartment is very nice, clean and is as described. It had everything we needed, including beach chairs and umbrella. The building and garage are not the nicest, but we felt safe. Jane was great to communicate with and warned us there was some construction, which didn’t end up impacting us. The futon sofa/bed is more comfortable than it looks. Starter supplies were adequately stocked. I would recommend.
Balconies face mauka (mountains) for a peaceful, local view, free of tourists and especially at night, you are just 1 block away from International Marketplace and Waikiki Beach! Large kitchen, warm showers, comfy beds and lots of extra conveniences make this place an EXTRAORDINARY experience for returning locals as well as tourists. Definitely staying here again and again....
Trying to access the property was a nightmare. We had a rental car, so upon arrival the code to the parking garage was not working. Trying to use the intercom to get a hold of security was broken. We called the number on the sign, only for no one to answer at the security office. Finally, the car behind us got out and let us use their code to get in.
Once we finally got into the condo, it was just like the pictures. They have beach chairs, towels, umbrella, even snorkeling gear.
The next morning we went back to the rental car to find the car across from us had a window broken out and glass everywhere. I called and reported it to security. It wasn’t until the next day the glass was picked up and two days the window of the car got taped and covered. Don’t leave anything in your car at this place! .
Everything is under construction)which was stated prior to booking) so you may have days or times where water is shut off, elevator is shut off, etc..
I don’t like giving a negative rating, because the condo itself was beautiful and as expected. It was the building in which the condo was in that was poor and unsafe.
Jane and the property were both wonderful. Jane made sure we were kept updated on the ongoing updates to the building, and the unit itself was clean and nicely arranged. The property is close enough to walk almost anywhere you would need to go, and the parking space makes getting anywhere else easy as well. Our son especially liked the pool, which made it easy for him to swim without fighting the crowds at Waikiki beach.
Property is just as described and photographed. This was a great location for our two week stay in Waikiki. The condo was clean and roomy enough for four or five people. The owner was great and easy to work with. Book your vacation now. You will not be disappointed.
Really well positioned, very clean, great communication from owner. Thoroughly enjoyable stay with two adults and elderly parent.
We were very pleasantly surprised of the beautiful views and the condo was in a great location if you would enjoy walking around town also a short walk to the beach… a few blocks . Jane was a great host and responds back quickly with any questions !
Easy access and close to everything. Great communication with the owner when needed.
We enjoyed our stay. Jane was very accommodating to all our needs.
Clean and close to the beach. What else could you ask for?
The building is undergoing some renovation, especially in the lobby which was slightly inconvenient. The pool was closed. It was supposed to be open by the time we stayed, but opening had been delayed. Not the fault of the owner, but still a big disappointment. Check availability of pool before you stay.
The condo itself has been updated and was comfortable.
It is a corner unit on a busy street so was kind of noisy on the balcony. Partial view of Diamond Head and beautiful sunrises from the balcony.
My family of 4 enjoyed staying at Jane's place. The condo is clean and the location is great - within walking distance to Waikiki beach and restaurants. Loved sitting in the lanai watching the sunrise 🙂 We definitely recommend!
Clean comfortable apartment, as described. Watch the sunrise from the balcony. Unfortunately the pool and grill area was being renovated, but the location is great. Three blocks from beach restaurants and shopping. Enjoyed the stay, and would stay there again.
Owner extremely helpful and reasonable
We enjoyed the property, even though the pool area was closed. Jane gave us a discount for our inconvenience.
Had everything that we needed and will be back to stay again. Ms Jane was wonderful to work with and easy to get ahold of. 10/10 recommendations for this condo!
The property was nice and convenient but the proximity to Ala Wai Blvd and the constant sirens from Police, EMS was very disturbing. Also the roof top pool and deck was closed the our entire trip so we could not enjoy the BBQ grills and the pool and view of Waikiki beach. Would have been nice to know this up front that this was not going to be available.
We had a great time at the condo. Cute, comfortable accommodations and close to Waikiki. Jane was quick and very helpful responding to any questions we had. We had a wonderful time there!
A+ property. We would stay here again. Nice updated place. Great communication w owner! Nice corner condo. Construction and some work going on in the bldg, but it didn't interfere at all. Short 4 blocks from beach, nice canal and Honolulu views.
Great location about 10 min walk to beach, clean, owner very responsive to questions. Chairs, umbrella, cooler, bodyboards, snorkeling gear all added bonuses.
Jane was amazing before during and after my stay. Her communication was superb and every time we chatted I was more and more excited about my stay. Jane's property was perfect for the two couples that stayed there. It was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I was pleasantly surprised thay there was so many extras like floaties, beach chairs and snorkel equipment for use. I had a great time celebrating my birthday in Hawaii and I'm so happy that Jane's place was available. It was walking distance to the beach and a number of shopping and restaurants. I can't say enough good things about my stay. Thanks so much Jane!
Amazing Place! I would definitely recommend it to all my friends! Jane was great and responsive
Very clean and in great location. Walking distance to everything we desired.
Beautiful views seen from the the lani of the Al Wai to roof top views of Waikiki.
Very nice condo and close to everything we needed. Also a parking space in garage was provided. Ms. Lee graciously allowed us to depart a bit later than checkout time to accommodate a snorkeling trip. Very good experience. I highly recommend!
Perfect location!! Walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the beach. Views are pretty as well! Owner easy to communicate with. Lots of beach things available for use in the Condo.
2 couples ideal
Great stay in Jane’s condo, exactly as shown on home away
Very updated and spotless
Good building and area in Waikiki , close to beach , shops and restaurants
Everything you should need is provided
Definitely recommend , Mahalo
The condo is beautiful and well equipped. Location is great. Worked out perfect for two couples. Mahalo 🌺
First visit to Hawaii and first using VRBO. Both were wonderful experiences. Jane's was very quick to answer my many questions and to accommodate us in a condo with the amenities we were looking for. We sat on the lanai and watch the ocean, canal and people going around downtown. I'd recommend this property and would return if we get back to the islands.
My family stayed in Jane’s condo recently. We would absolutely stay there again! It was everything we had imagined. Very clean and affordable plus in a great location. Waikiki beach is only a short walk away.
The location is great. It is close to the beach, shopping, restaurants. The condo was clean , the beds comfortable, and was well equipped with everything we might need. It was perfect for us, family of 4. The building is well maintained. The check in and check out process was easy. Janes was always available when we called her. Thank you so much to allow us to stay later than the check out hour. We want to come back :).
I’ll start off by validating most of the other reviews; the place was nice, clean, and well apportioned. Beds were comfortable, 2 TV’s with decent cable, the grills on the roof worked well and had utensils, the pool was smaller but clean and fun, plenty of towels, and of course, inflatables and a cooler! Check in is a breeze, building is a bit dated (1974), but well kept with 24 hr security at the front desk. Jane was responsive and very pleasant (met her and her husband), and in a great location. The only negative we had were some nightly critters that came out in the kitchen. I wouldn’t say there was an infestation, but I was a little uncomfortable a couple times that we’d bring home some unwelcome guests. Kitchen was the Hot Spot, and I went and bought some glue traps to keep a lid on things. For the record, I work construction in Chicago, so I’ve been in some pretty unsavory places and tend to blow most things off, so we weren’t being hysterical, but there were a few more running around then I would have liked. In Jane’s defense, it seemed like work was taking place on another unit, which doesn’t help, and the July building exterminator shows on the first Thursday of the month - this year, it was was the 4th, so I guess no one showed. Few other info only points; parking garage is 6-0 and tight, so avoid large SUV’s; Food Pantry was torn down, so we shopped at Food Land by King and H1; there was a little street noise, but you’re in the heart of Waikiki, not sure what some people expected, and the windows were fine.
Lovely modern condo just a short walk from beaches, restaurants and shopping Waikiki. Jane has thought of everything, including all that you need for a day at the beach (chairs, umbrella, cooler and towels). From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left we felt at home. Jane is the perfect owner and was very responsive to our emails and questions. We would love to visit again!
Great central location with fully equipped kitchen and laundry. Perfect for young families. Would be even better with black out curtains - unless of course you’re a fan of early wake ups!
Jane is very attentive. She made sure to send us a text in case we had any problems or issues. I’ll definitely come back if I visit Hawaii.
