Everything was excellent from the ease of check in to the prompt responses from the owner when we had mechanical issues with patio door. My only complaint is that we only had two wash clothes and towels as well as one tiny soap and shampoo for the entire week long stay. I would have liked either maid service mid stay to replenish the towels or more to start with. There is access to washer and dryer but it could have been better supplied. But overall I would recommend the condo and would stay again.

This place was in the best location, we walked to the beach every day! Easily can walk to restaurants and shops. Great pool and BBQ areas on level 6. Everything we needed was in the condo-chairs, umbrella, boogie board. However, one chair was broken and toaster was broken but other than that it was great! All cooking supplies provided which was great! Would definitely recommend and stay here again!

Property was as advertised. Clean, well stocked and had a great view. Nice area a short walk from the beach or shops.

The condo is comfortable. The only problem is there are no kitchen supplies such as salt & pepper or cooking oil. The elevators are slow and one morning around 10 am took 25 minutes just to board one from the 37th floor. Ridiculous. The bed was comfortable and the pull out couch was fine for my 11 yr old. They also had some chairs & mats for the beach. Over all it was a good stay.

This condo is in the perfect location towards the tail end of Waikiki near the zoo. This location makes it a bit quieter but still within walking distance of literally everything. Condo was clean with an amazing view of Waikiki and Diamondhead (to your left of the lanai). AC unit in the living area that kept the condo cool and a fan in the bedroom if needed. Laundry next door was convenient. Free overnight parking is a great addition to this condo as most places charge $50 usd or more per night for parking in Waikiki. Elevators were a bit slow and warm, but that was totally fine for our stay. Parking garage is a bit tight, so really large SUV’s might have issues parking. All in all we are very pleased with the accommodations and Alvin (owner) who was very responsive and checked in with us during our stay. We would 100% stay here again.

The property is really well situated. You are close to so many ammenities. The property and condo are well maintained. A real bonus is that parking was free and there were no resort fees--they are not greedy. I highly recommend staying here.

This place was awesome!! We loved our stay, got married and stayed here. View was amazing. The only thing that sucked was the elevators took forever for maintainer we believed but that was out of their control

The condo has an awesome view and location and was super clean and easy access in/out. It is easy walking distance to restaurants and the beach. I would definitely pick this place to stay again. It was a great home away from home.

What a beautiful property. Centrally located to all the best things in Waikiki and what an incredible view! The unit was clean, came with everything we needed and Alan was a gracious host! I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Waikiki Beach!

Loved everything about this unit! The view is to die for and location is walking distance to many major downtown stores, restaurants and beaches. The ONLY complaint I have is that the elevators in the building are sauna boxes! There is no air movement in the elevators and it becomes a melting box waiting to go down and up to your room. Otherwise would definitely stay here again!

I’m so happy I chose to stay here!! The place was amazing. Only about a 5 minute walk to the beached, close to Starbucks and ABC stores. I had one issue arise with parking, however that was a mistake made by the condominium. Alvin was able to get it resolved for me no problem 😊 would highly recommend.

We were very pleased with our experience renting this property. Loved the view sitting on the balcony. Convenient walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. The owner was quick to respond to our only question. Only complaint was the frequent difficulty in closing the patio door.

Loved the location. Would absolutely stay again

We had some issues with the unit and the owner was very quick to respond and easy to get a hold of. The property manager on the other hand left a lot to be desired. The unit was in a good location and we enjoyed the stay overall. I would recommend the unit to others and we have talked with the owner about the concerns we had and he resolved them for us. Thank you for your quick response and we would give the unit a good rating and we would stay here in the future.

This was our first visit to Hawaii and the condo was perfect! Centrally located and had all the amenities that were needed! They also had beach supplies for us to use. We will definitely rent from them again!!

Nice place, stated there were sand chairs, umbrella, sand toys, sorry NO umbrella, would have brought one. Plus fix the sliding glass door very difficult to open. Still was a lovely place and would stay again

June 2022
Great place as advertised and good location with an excellent view--wish it were a little closer to mid-Waikiki Beach. Great communication with the host. Parking easier than mentioned by several other reviews. No real traffic issues for being in the middle of all the action. My 7 y/o really enjoyed the protected areas of Waikiki Beach as an option, Of course--lots of ABC Stores to check out and a Safeway about 5 minute drive away for all of your groceries.

The unit had great views of the ocean. Diamond Head was not easy to see but possible if looking left over balcony. The unit was large, had all cookware/dishes and they provided beach towels, chairs and some beach toys. The couches and bed were comfy, TV had the basic channels and the little wall AC unit did a great job of keeping the unit cool. The unit is very high, on the 37th of 38 floors. The elevators took awhile to get up and down, due to lots of frequent stops. Great location, 2 blocks to the beach and good restaurants all around. The offered Free Parking was great!! Remember to take your pool key to access your car in the garage after hours. They lock the garage-elevator access doors in the evening. You can exit, but need the key to get back in. One small complaint, the shower and sinks drained very slow. This is understandable, considering all those rinsing off sand with the faucets, but something to note.

Our stay at the property was very comfortable (I am real customer and not paid to do adds :)). We stayed on 37 floor of 38-floor building with gorgeous view of the ocean (Waikiki beach) - no one peeks into your balcony because opposite hotels' rooms are mostly below you :). King bed is huge and unfolding sofa was comfortable. Renovated home and fully equipped kitchen. Do not need to bring your beach staff - all provided by the host. One block away from the beach with beautiful Catholic church and Marriott Hotel on the way. We were always able to find parking spot - paid by the host. And most of all, the host are wonderful people who are trying to help in any situation when possible. My wife already plans to return. Thank you!

I stayed for 8 days. Partial spring break: partial work trip. My daughter and I loved the view and location. Very brief walk to the beach. The only bad surprise we had was that maintenance was in my room one afternoon with no notice. We walked into strangers. We had left our purses and jewelry out and just felt really caught off guard. I would recommend that notice be given to vacationers that a maintenance call has been scheduled to avoid bad surprises in the future. Other than that, it was a fantastic place to stay

This was a great place for our family of 4. The two boys shared the couch which they kept saying was “so comfortable!!” and the slide wall at nights for a little privacy between rooms was great. Kitchen was stocked with everything we could need. I don’t have a bad thing to say!

The property is exactly what was represented on the rental listing. Everything was clean and comfortable and the view could not have been better.

Close proximity to all and slight distance from main tourist area made for a more enjoyable (quieter and relaxing) stay. Fully stocked kitchen was so helpful with young picky little eaters!

We 2 retired seniors stayed at this property for 5 days in November 2021. The pictures shown on the VRBO website are probably 10 yrs old. The view from the 37th floor is indeed gorgeous but that's where everything ends. We arrived late in the evening. The first thing we wanted to do was to take a decent shower. Alas!!! The faucet was not working and most of the water was wasted in the bathtub and not going up to the showerhead. and we were not able to call the local maintenance office. The next morning after SEVERAL attempts at reaching them someone answered at 10.30 and promised that "the maintenance man will get to the condo as soon as he arrives for work". We stepped out to explore the place (of course with no shower!)Upon returning at 2 pm of course no one had bothered to fix the problem. The owner sent us a text msg to go to the maintenance office and have them come up---is this our job? Shouldn't the unit be checked after each renter leaves and the necessary maintenance be done????? Of course, after checking the person could not "fix" it as he needed to get a new faucet. So finally on day 3 around 3 PM, we had a decent shower!!! The bathroom flooring is broken in 2 places with some patchwork done. Tones of dust behind the TV stand, Wall at the entry patched up with some white paint. Could not sit on the balcony as it was full of bird poop.!! After finding a dried-up coffee pack in the coffee maker I figured that the kitchen really has not been cleaned and decided to clean up myself the next morning. In the 5 days, we were there the pool nor the jacuzzi was ever cleaned as every day I would go at 8 am in the hopes that they would have cleaned it---no such luck. The mattress is new and very comfortable. The sofa cushions have served their purpose longtime ago. The kitchen is well equipped with utensils. The owner does respond to the text msgs. But since he lives out of the country I doubt if he has recently STAYED in the unit. At the very least he should find a better maintenance company locally.

The place was as advertised, as you can see from the continual bookings, vacancy limited. With that said, there is wear and tear in the unit. Couch pillows needs replacement, bathroom vent fan not working and visited every morning by 2 white pigeons, cute but after awhile the deck got messy. Suspect previous guests left food for them as they are not afraid of humans. I’m sure Alvin will continue to upkeep the unit and I would refer this unit to others. Free parking with unit is a plus

Alvin communicated well throughout the time we were searching for a place for out family, after booking, and post stay. We were amazed by the view of the ocean, the partial view of Diamondhead, and even the convenience of where his home was located in Waikiki Banyan. The kitchen was well designed and had all the comforts of home from pans, to flatware/plates/glasses, the convenience of a dishwasher, and a nice place to gather for a meal. We placed the stools across the bar top/island and we loved that! The bed reminded us of our own at home. Alvin has extra comforters and blankets to use and we surely used them because the a/c was exceptional! Helpful supplies like an iron/ironboard, laundry basket, even a scale, and not to mention beach gear was available. The lanai was amazing and we were greeted mornings with parrots and pigeons that were so lovely! The kids camped out on the sofa sleeper, but because the bed was king sized, sometimes our daughter climbed in our bed! There is a collapsible divider between the livingroom and bedroom that was handy when we needed privacy. The cable/internet was very stable. The trash and laundry were conveniently located near the condo. There is an app that you can use to pay for a wash if you don't have change. Your first wash is free once you add funds on the app. The pool was warm and the jacuzzi was helpful after a nice hike! There is also a gorgeous view of Diamondhead from the 6th floor! There is a cafe as well as a mini mart in the hotel. parking was safe, too! Have confidence booking with Alvin! You won't regret it! Thank you Alvin for sharing your home with us!

From the communication with the host to the location, there was nothing not to love. We were close enough to the beach to walk, restaurants and shops. The condo was equipped with everything you might need, we were very pleasantly surprised! The Lanai was big and we enjoyed looking at the beach every morning and night. We had plenty of towels for the days we stayed, and we slept really well in the king size bed. The AC worked great too. We loved it and would highly recommend this condo! Thank you to our host!!!

This property was an excellent location and great value. The highlight was the stunning ocean view of Waikiki from the balcony. The walk to Waikiki beach is a few minutes and there are lots of restaurants and shops. Alvin was always very responsive and helpful. Thank you for the great stay, Alvin!!

We stayed here for three nights. The location is fantastic, just a couple blocks from Waikiki Beach. Since you are on the 37th floor, you get a fantastic view of the ocean and don't hear any of the typical city noise. The unit includes one parking pass, and parking was super easy in the attached parking garage. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again when we come back to Waikiki!
