It is on a lower floor so the volleyball courts can get loud early, particularly on weekends.

My husband and I returned back home after five years of being away. We could not have been happier with our choice of state. The location was fantastic, the amenities were wonderful and it was close to family and friends. What made it extra special is the parking space and the washer dryer! Those are a godsend The check in and check out process was a breeze! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in the little bit of Aloha Hideaway.

The stay near diamond head was terrific . The location is outstanding and the property was very nice. I would highly recommend it for a single or couple; can be a bit snug beyond that. Property manager was very responsive and helpful. Will be back for sure

This property was everything we needed for a month stay. It wasn’t right on Waikiki where everything is always a hustle and bustle…yet it was close enough to walk if we needed to. View is great with big open windows. Kitchen was spacious enough to cook full meals as needed. The parking spot was CLUTCH. Hopefully this property will be available when we come back! We’d stay here again without a doubt.

I've always preferred staying on this side of the park. Outside of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The area is great as you can walk to so much. The building is well managed and the room itself is just as advertised. Beautiful view of both Diamond Head and the Ocean alike. I look forward to coming back next time.

Perfect Hawaiian escape. Tasteful 900 square foot condo with all the conveniences. Wake up every morning to the magnificent views of the Ocean and Diamond Head. The full length of the window seat to lounge on was great. The trade winds were great and air conditioning wasn't needed. Throw in convenient stress free parking,an elevator that takes less than a minute,I could go on, and on. Perfect stress free vacation

This adult condo was beautifully decorated and stocked well with everything needed for a 30 day stay. It was super comfortable and perfect location on the beach. I can't say enough of about this place and the Manager, Mollye. I stayed 6 weeks and it was not enough. I have stayed in a lot of condos in different venues and this was the best!. Easy walk to Waikiki but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of parks and beaches on the Gold Coast. Quiet with the exception of waves. Views of whales, turtles, monk seals, paddlers, sailboats, Friday night fireworks and the best sunsets in the world. I loved my end of day wine and sunsets. So many activities at your fingertips. No pool but the ocean is your pool. No gym but the park and walkways offer plenty of exercise. Recommend highly for stays over 30 days. I would not recommend renters with little kids though as the windows are wide open and the condo sits on the 18th floor. You can't go wrong with this place otherwise.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but close enough to easily walk to restaurants and nearby Waikiki beaches. The stove and oven aren't functioning but there is a hotplate and an air fryer.

Great location on the second floor which made it very convenient to get down to the beach. The condo was well equipped with everything including beach chairs and umbrella. Quiet end of Waikiki which resulted in great sleeps. The property manager was easy to communicate with. Highly recommend the property. Looking forward to going back!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our stay in this property was everything we could have hoped for. One wall of windows in the apartment faced the beach so we could listen to the waves and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets. The property was spotless and appeared to have been recently updated with upscale cabinetry and appliances. The kitchen was very well-equipped for cooking. There were more than enough bath and beach towels that appeared to be new. The property manager was readily available when needed and was very helpful when our arrival was delayed due to illness. I would recommend this property without any hesitation to my friends or relatives.

We have stayed at this property several times before. The location is great. The only problem was noise. There were many parts of the building being fixed up so the construction noise was a problem.

We enjoy staying in #206! It is just minutes from the beach, and we have fun snorkeling. Being on the second floor is a real advantage for unloading groceries and walking to the condo. Kapiolani Park is right across from the Colony Surf which is very nice. Diamond Head is just across the street, too. Having a parking spot, in the ramp, is ideal. Having laundry and a nice shower is great!

Reviewer Comments: Every July we look forward to staying in 908 which has stunning views, natural air cooling (breezes through the condo), all the amenities we need to live comfortably including a full kitchen and washing machine and dryer. The parking space is of course invaluable. And the location! I swim every morning at Kaimana Beach, just down the stairs, and this summer could check on the baby monk seal and its mother regularly. We also love entertaining friends (two at a time!) who also greatly enjoy the views and ambience.Byron was extremely attentive to our needs and responded very quickly.

The unit is lovely. The furniture, the bedding, the photos and paintings around the unit all combine to give a comfortable aloha feeling. With just 2 of us to cook for, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. The unit was immaculate, clean and refreshing. The view of Diamond Head, the blue green ocean during the day beautiful, while after dark the view of the Waikiki skyline was spectacular. What’s not to love having a beach right outside your door!Our unit manager was always available to help us if needed. The Captain Cook office staff were wonderful to work with and could answer any questions we had.
