Floor was hideously dirty; walking around barefoot left the soles of our feet black as soot. Cockroaches abound. The nearby bar, Cuckoo Coconuts, plays inescapably loud music until 10-11pm. We were alright only because we had earplugs.

This was a great place to stay just two blocks from Waikiki Beach. Everything in the place was well clean well organized, and I would stay here again without any problems at all. Thank you for very much for letting me stay here and hope everybody have a great day.

Great property. Would stay here again! Great checking details. Made contact with the management about not having some utensils, etc, and they promptly replied and came the same day to drop the items off. Very close to all conveniences so walking distance to everything. Was nice to have the option of complimentary parking but we didn’t rent a car so wasn’t needed. Thanks again!

The condo was just what we expected. It was a bit noisy at night due to location but we new that from past reviews. Its to be expected as you are in the heart of Waikiki. Two short blocks away from all the action and beaches. Noise died down around 10pm. We had good sleeps.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I have stayed in this building many times. This unit was very large. Lots of room! The diamonds were the washer and dryer in unit and the free parking!! Huge savings. The room is well decorated and has basics with several amenities. The only thing I would ask for is a cooler for the beach! The beach chairs were great! I will say the only draw backs was that the pillows all need replacing and the bedroom bed (king) is very very firm. There is also a bar nearby which plays live loud music till about 10 pm every night. It didn’t bother us much as we stay up late but if u have children it may bug you. All in all a very good rental. Very good for the price! Would stay again!

Good location, central to everything. Parking spot was tight but was forewarned by property manager. The room had a weird smell in the beginning, we aired it out and sprayed some stuff and it did dissipate though. It’s a city so it’s going to be noisy wherever you stay. The laundry and dryer on the floor was an added bonus.

What a great time we had at the Marine Surf! It was clean, well appointed and we loved morning coffee on the balcony! The description is accurate and yes, you need a small car for the parking spot (we had a Nissan Kicks and it was a perfect fit). We left a cash card for future guests.to add money for.lavendar becaise otherwise you have to buy the card then load the $3 for a load of wash/dry. The location is excellent for accessing all our favorite.spots locally. Driving in and out was easy. The entrance to the parking garage is on Kuhio so dont be confised by the GPS. We will definitely return to this property and recommend it for you!

We had a pleasant stay at the condo! It was exactly what we needed as a couple without children! High enough to not be too noisy, and we were able to park our Mazda cx-90 in the spot with little trouble! We WILL stay here next time we come! If you do not you’ll miss out!

We have stayed in this condo complex before and pick it because of location & free parking. We were disappointed with this condo though. It was VERY basic. One set of towels, terrible pillows( we went and bought a pillow & extra wash clothes and Beach towels) No coffee filters for coffee( went a bought also) air conditioner bucket had to be emptied and the air conditioner also leaked all over our clothes and couch. If you are just looking for a place to sleep and free parking and don’t care about anything else this will work for you. Also, the lanai door barely opens. We were afraid of breaking it because you have to push it so hard. Nothing made us want to rent this place again.

The unit was perfect for what we needed. Unfortunately, the reviews that pointed out the noise weren’t accurate. Bar on the same block played loud music until 3am then road construction started at 4am. If you stay up all night and sleep during the day it would be perfect. The whole area is very walkable!

Really disappointed in this property. Stayed here because of the location and free parking. The building is a mix of hotel/short term rentals. The good: included parking, though tight garage and spot; Toto bidet toilet seat; air conditioning works. The bad: Budget, but not cheap enough to offset issues with property; LOTS of deferred maintenance; The handicapped lift from the street to entrance and washer on the floor of the unit were both broken; Much of the furniture in the room does not match pictures… Looks like things may have gotten damaged over time and the management company replaced previous items with furniture from goodwill; Chipped paint on all of the furniture and kitchen shelving. Cabinets in kitchen maligned; Bed mattress had a sinking spot and discovered the slats had fallen off one corner… Thankfully, I was able to fix this myself; Unit was quite dirty. Carpet could use a deep cleaning; Headboard was slippery; Fridge and freezer both had two small cockroaches dead inside of them; Saw roaches multiple times a day in the kitchen near the fridge and also on the bathroom sink; I grew up in Hawaii and understand pests can sometimes be unavoidable, but the unit certainly could benefit from a regular visit by an exterminator. Lastly, housekeepers knocked and tried to enter unit before check out time. All in all, not the best. Ok if you plan on being out most of the time and really drunk while in the unit. Otherwise, I would pay for parking and stay elsewhere.

Pros: Location, parking spot, clean building, clean laundry room and facilities, good amount of towels and hand towels available, friendly managing agent who came over herself to resolve a small issue on check in. Cons: Noisy AC and the fact you have to empty water from the bucket under it on the balcony, the balcony has too much furniture on it, a big table that cant really be used and should be removed, sliding door to balcony is extremely difficult to open, feels like its jammed on something. The tiled floor needs a deep clean, not sure if it ever gets mopped. The curtains could do with a good clean. Overall it was an ok stay. The parking spot and location were the redeeming factors.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: 2回連続年越しで滞在したが2回共火災警報で20階から階段で避難した。両方共誤報だったが少しこわい。水が出なくなる事がありトイレ、シャワーに困るしトイレは簡単につまり室内も少し古さを感じます。唯しロケーションは最高です。ワイキキの中心で何処でも徒歩移動が楽です、ラナイからは一部海が見えます。ベッドに寝ていても見えます。年越し時期は天気が良ければ水平線に太陽が沈む所が見れます。金曜の夜ヒルトンの花火がほぼ見えます。共用廊下からは年越し花火が一部見えます。駐車場付なので遠出も楽です。

This place is an absolute steal. Everything about it is perfect and the room comes equipped with everything you need. I saw a few older reviews mentioning the room was outdated but please know they clearly updated it since then. It felt clean, modern and there’s a balcony! The only thing you must be aware of going in is that it’s NOISY. You are in the middle of the city so there will always be street noise day and night. As long as you’re okay with that, you will have a fabulous stay

There are lots of nice restaurants and food trailers in walking distance. The condo was updated and had all we needed for making breakfast and sandwiches in the kitchenette. The included parking spot worked was a big selling point over other condos we looked at. Alii Beach Rentals clearly communicated all the rules and instructions and the mobile app made check in a breeze.

Nice restaurants are downstairs and they kindly gave me resident discount one day :)The property is big enough for 1 or 2, with pretty much everything you need, even dishwashing detergent and sponge!Some light bulbs need to be changed and hopefully the shower drain can be faster and screen door is there for lanai- there was a big bug inside one day... but those were not big things compared to the convenience you can enjoy!
