From the moment we arrived, our hosts ( Loan and Lewis) were attentive to our every need. The condo was appointed with more than just the basics for a comfortable stay and whenever I had a question or request they responded immediately. Couldn’t have asked for better hosts!

This condo is on the 10th floor and had great views from the lanai of the canal and mountains. Bedrooms have small windows and no real view. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. Within walking distance to main hotels and dining. The parking space is tight but worked great. Would recommend.

Shower curtain had mold and kept falling down. Only one chair for the dining table. Seem to be lots of police action every night. Lots of homeless and run down local buildings.

We found the condo tasteful and comfortable. It was me, my husband and my adult daughter. Nice 10th floor location, plenty of towels, comfy bedding and well stocked kitchen. So much better than a hotel room or cramped studio.

Condo easy to access and was as appeared online. Beach supplies were an added bonus. Some restaurants and shops and beach within a 10 min walk while Waikiki is 20 mins plus. Easy to Uber around to other sights. We had a fun time!

The condo is great! The beds are super comfy, the kitchen has full size appliances, we only used the fridge- don’t cook on vacation:) Dan is great with communication & accommodating with last minute changes. The pool is adorable & gets great sun in the afternoon. The condo is in a perfect location- a 10 minute walk to the beach, and surrounded by restaurants, bars, food trucks & local stores! We would 100% stay here again!

This unit was nice, it is outdated but thats to be expected for the area. Noise wasn’t an issue for us, you are in the city you should expect some noise from outside. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything you needed. I will say we did see some roaches but you see roaches in the street! We lived in Japan for 4 years so we knew that we would see them. You can’t avoid them on a tropical island. I don’t think it’s an issue that the owners created or can avoid! The owner was great at communication and we would come back again, we actually wanted to book it again in April but it was already booked!

This place has everything an average condo by the beach has. I was not sure about the location but when I learnt how close the Ala Moana Mall, a food truck park and several convenience stores are, I loved the location. Communication with the host was great at all times. I'll definitely stay there again.

This property is excellently located in Waikiki. It is an easy walk to Ala Moana shopping center, Hilton Hawaiian Village, and along the shopping strip in Waikiki. The property was clean and well maintained. The kitchen has a full complement of utensils. The parking is safe, secure, and easy to access. Working with Arvis was easy and enjoyable; any questions or issues were resolved immediately!! We will definitely stay here the next time we come back!!

This is such a great apartment. It has everything and is well stocked. It had Christmas decorations which made it very special. The location is perfect with walking distance to beach, shops and restaurants. The private parking spot across the road is amazing. No need to look for parking. As it is in the middle of the city, do expect some noise at night.

**Review for Vrbo in Waikiki, Oahu:** ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️☆ We recently stayed at this Vrbo in Waikiki, and overall, it was a fantastic experience. The beds were incredibly comfortable, ensuring a restful night's sleep after our long days of exploring. The location was ideal, with easy access to the beach, restaurants, and shopping areas. The only minor inconvenience we encountered was the challenge of parking. While it wasn't a deal-breaker by any means, maneuvering into the parking could be a bit tricky at times. However, with a bit of patience and skill, it was manageable. Overall, I would highly recommend this place for its comfort and prime location. Just be prepared for a slight parking challenge.

The pictures of the condo were beautiful but the condo was much less than expected. Very outdated. Towels were old and thin. Floors were very dirty. (Bottom of socks were filthy) curtains in bedrooms were stained terribly, and limited kitchen supplies. We were glad to leave. Sorry for the bad review but very true comments.

Walking distance to Waikiki and close to nice restaurants and my favorite local bar… The Irish Rose. It’s an older condo so just understand that it is a good value for the money. We saved on lodging so we could have more money to spend on excursions.

Our group of five adults enjoyed an amazing eight days at this condo near Waikiki Beach in Honolulu. The property manager, Loan, was very quick to respond to our calls when we lost power (due to an explosion of faulty electrical equipment across the street within minutes of our arrival), and when the spring on our door broke she sent a maintance man who responded within an hour. The lanai was a great place to sit and watch people each day, and many places to eat, shop, and enjoy were within walking distance.

This condo was a little piece of paradise. It has beautiful views outside the main window of the city. The inside had granite countertops, comfy beds, and plenty of room for a family of five. We have visited Oahu several times and this by far the best place we have ever stayed in. It is conveniently located by the ocean and surrounded by fun little shops and restaurants that are only a walk away. The owner is very easy to communicate with and even provided suggestions to make our family vacation more spectacular.

instructions for check in were simple and very well detailed. Place was comfortable for a party of four adults. Location and parking was great. Place can use some TLC but honestly for the price and location it makes up for it. Thank you for sharing your home with my family and I and aloha for now.

Beds were terrible. Very dirty. Flooring in disrepair. Old and very rundown. Parking is blocks away. Overall property is stinky and very out dated. Lots of very large roaches!

AC does not cool bedrooms. Central does not work and the single small window unit is only effective if you sit next to it.Not informed about parking till we arrived. Which was obviously intentional. Only a couple of washers and dryers worked. Overall cleanliness not good at all. Lack of towels for the time stayed. And warned by locals about being out at night

Our family of five stayed at Dan's place for seven days. The kitchen was wiped down, but it wasn't cleaned with proper cleaning products. We had to wash any dish that we wanted to use when we first arrived. The couch was comfortable; however, there were no extra linens for a fifth sleeping space, when it was advertised to sleep five. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting. The toilet and bathtub were not clean. The bathtub had hair and sand in it; it was dirty when we arrived. I messaged Dan on the first day to let him know, and he said he would check with his cleaner but never got back to me. We ended up cleaning the bathtub ourselves, and the paper towels turned yellow after wiping it. Furthermore, the towels and bath rugs had an odd smell, and we questioned whether or not they had been washed. In the bedrooms, we found large dust balls under the bed. Additionally, the apartment got very warm, and one of the fans was covered in dust and not working properly. In the main bedroom with sliding doors, there was a dried coffee spill that had never been cleaned up from the doors. The photos of the building amenities are misleading. The pictures of the pool are from the building next door and not available to renters. There is, however; a very small pool outside the lobby. I would not stay here again, and it’s a shame.

This property is walking distance to the Hilton Hawwaiian Village and Waikiki Beach. And a parking spot in the building across the street came with the rental. That was a great perk. Parking in Waikiki can be super expensive.

We had a pleasant stay. The building is well managed and the property manager was available to address questions during our stay. A convenient location in Waikiki and close to Ala Moana.

The condo worked out very well with us as a group of 5. Close to the beach. Had some issues with the checkin with regards to the lock box but that was resolved early in the morning after. The internet router had to be replaced and was attended to by Julio who set everything in place. Overall, the condo met our needs, communications with the owner and Julio were quite smooth and made for a very enjoyable stay, would definitely stay here again!

David made our stay great. The unit needed some unfinished repair which we worked around and not completed. Location is within walking distance to all, beach, shopping etc. I would rent this unit again. Thank you David.

The property is in a good location to everything and could be a great place to stay but here it comes. It is in need of repair and good house cleaning. You are paying BIG BUCKS $$$$$ for a clean apartment but there is BLACK MOLD in the bathroom where there is an obvious ceiling leak that the owners know about but haven't fixed (about 2 renters before us reported issues, buyers be ware NO REFUND POLICY). Dust buildup in airvents and portable fan. Floors need a good cleaning and repair. The second bedroom beds are like sleeping on the floor. The chair in the living room needs to be cleaned. There is only eating space for 2 so you will have to eat in livingroom, balcony, and dining room. We were told that we would get our cleaning depost returned but I am still waiting (stay was 7/12-7/19 today is 7/30). Don't get stuck in Hawaii without money to rent someware else. Black mold is toxic.

We stayed in Waikiki for a wedding and needed a place where we could have meals for our young kids. This condo having 2 bedrooms and a parking spot was a huge bonus for the area.

September 2023

Property in need of lots of updates and it could have been cleaner. Kitchen utensils and pans are not in good shape. However, if you just want a place to stay and to sit on the balcony at night and enjoy the lights and the trade winds you will do fine here. Do not stay here if you are used to a lovely home or if you are looking for island green tropical secluded getaway.

The unit was very clean & comfortable as advertised. Location is perfect very close to the iconic Waikiki beach as well as very close to all amenities in the vibrant Honolulu downtown. Owners were very helpful and allowed us a late check out on our fly out day which was very nice considering that flight was late that evening. My family and me really enjoyed our stay from August 20th to August 30, 2023 and look forward to renting this unit in future.

PHENOMENAL STAY!!! We enjoyed our entire stay at Arvis’ location!!! CLEAN, SPACIOUS, ACCOMMODATING CONDO WITH AMENITIES (i. e. shampoo, soap, wash clothes. towels. iron, iron board, classy view, and pictures aligned with actual condo). We hope to stay there again or make reservations at another location of Arvis! Btw, he answers via text, phone or email, immediately!!! THANKS SO MUCH, ARVIS!!!

We were there for a couple of weeks and utilized the bus service to get around since parking is at a premium. Dan’s place is close to bus stops, scooter, and moped rentals if you wanted to rent them. Traffic can be a bit loud, but the a/c usually drowns out most of the noise. A short bus ride or walk to get to Walmart or the mall. We would walk to the beach as well. All in all a cute little place to stay.
