Flying from New Zealand to east coast US, we decided on a few days layover in Hawaii to make the trip easier. We chose this apartment for its location and beautiful views. We also chose it for what appeared in the photos to be a beautiful apartment. While it served our purpose, the apartment is very dated and needs a bath and kitchen renovation at the least. We had hoped to prepare some of our own meals, but the kitchen was not adequate. On the bright side, the location is ideal and there are great restaurants nearby. And the sunsets from the balcony are beautiful.

My spouse and kids (13 and 9) stayed here and we were very comfortable. We had a pull out bed and inflatable mattress for the kids and they were both happy and with the arrangement. Note that the pull out couch bed could easily fit two kids, they just wanted their own space. Paul was great and accommodating. Place is as described and listing is accurate. We had no issues with the dryer and did multiple loads of laundry per day. Yes there are birds on the balcony, they are tiny and cute, not like seagulls or pigeons coming to fight you for your last french fry! I already checked about going back next March and unfortunately the price is now about $150CAD more per night than we paid so we are sadly priced out now :/ We appreciated the place a lot and think anyone would be very happy here. The location is amazing and so is the view.

Great view facing the sunset. Close to the beach and area restaurants. Full kitchen for those who like to prepare their own meals. Enjoyed our stay.

From the moment we walked in the building, I got a sense that this was going to be great, and it didn't disappoint. The accommodations were exactly as described and even better. We truly felt we were in 5-star accommodations. The location was spot on. We were close and just close enough to everything. We walked everywhere. The beach out front wasn't that busy so it was nice to have elbow room. I would definitely recommend this place and would gladly stay here again.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful stay! It was our first time visiting Hawaii and Captain Cook Resorts made it amazing. Unit 1310 had breathtaking views, it was the perfect location, beautiful, and clean. Our daughter has decided to attend UH Manoa in the fall, so we will definitely be returning and our first choice will be to stay at a Captain Cook Resorts location. Gene was the perfect host and went above and beyond with his willingness to help at all times!

Location is great, Paul was very helpful. Biggest complaint, the bed is horrible, just a thin foam pad on top of a box spring. Other than that the location and ease of access to beach is great. Parking is across street with key fob. If the bed is replaced I would stay again.

Amazing spot! Watch the sunset every night and the fireworks on Friday from your lanai. Be in the beach 60 seconds from your front door. The unit is well-laid out and has lots of thoughtful touches. We would definitely stay here again. Do note that it's not actually a king bed, it's two twin beds shoved together, so there's a big ridge in the center. And the location is amazing, but not very quiet or private; would recommend a white noise machine and earplugs to sleep

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I stayed 4 weeks. Paul, the rental agent, did a nice job, very friendly and accommodating with extra supplies after the second week when I was running low. It wasn’t required, so I really appreciated it. The condo location is wonderful. Here are my issues. First - DO NOT USE THE DRYER! IT SINGES/BURNS YOUR CLOTHES! I had 5 shirts ruined with burn marks. Only “Air Fluff” is safe, but it takes forever to dry clothes that way. Second, using the TV/Spectrum Cable system is frustrating and cumbersome. It’s necessary to use multiple remotes most of the time, and getting the on screen channel guide to work is nearly impossible! There ought to be a printed guide left in the condo for a quick reference for renters. Yes the unit was clean, but does show its dating and wear. The balcony is a favorite spot for birds, so expect lots if bird droppings which is messy. The condo in my opinion is definitely too small for 4 adults. A couple with 2 young children under 5 or 6 maybe. I wouldn’t discount a return to this condo, but would seriously consider others first.

We stayed for 3 nights. The location was awesome! The sunset from the lanai was beautiful, the condo is steps from Waikiki Beach and the downtown area with shopping, restaurants and bars. We loved having designated, safe, assigned parking. The only feedback we have is checking in at a property down the road was a little weird when you are unfamiliar with the area and the bed is actually 2 twin beds pushed together. It was very uncomfortable and unless there is a reason you need 2 twin beds in a one bedroom, I would highly recommend upgrading to a comfy king bed.

March 2024

The condo is very nicely furnished, comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed. The bonuses were the great balcony perfect for sunsets and the lovely green space and palm trees of the park next door. Close walking distance to great restaurants, beach activities and shopping. The area felt safe and was easy to access from different parts of the city. Parking was very convenient as well. Street noise was pretty loud but improved at night with closed doors and using the AC on warmer nights. The elevators were very busy probably due to spring break crowds. Check in and out was fast and easy. I would recommend this unit and would stay again.

Since we didn't want to rent a car, location to the beach and amenities was forefront in our search criteria! Easy access to Outrigger Reef next door where we could grab Starbucks before grabbing a Lyft to places we needed to go to for our friends wedding festivities. Secure building was really appreciated. The room was clean and as described with a really lovely view. Beachside Lounge chair and umbrella rental for a discounted price for the staying here was a perk that we enjoyed a couple of times. Excellent hosts. I would stay here again.

The property is safe, clean and well located. The room is in immaculate condition and both the property manager and the owner were very attentive to our needs. The room was laid out quite well and the view was outstanding. It is hard to find something to criticize. The only thing I could find is that although the cookware is quite adequate, it should be replaced. Me and my wife were totally satisfied with our stay. Aloha!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I have never loved a rental more than I loved this place. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. Walking in upon check-in (which was a great process and so nice to have a person to show us around when getting in) to big open walls of windows was amazing and set the stage for a wonderful 4 nights. It is rare for me to be content spending time in a rental, but this place was a destination itself. We have 4 kids and actually really enjoyed the smaller beach area out front as there were other people there but it never felt crowded like further down Waikiki beach feels. Our kids were able to play catch with a football any time they wanted without trouble. Sunset view was perfect from the balcony and also loved the great view of the city at night. Cannot rave about this rental more.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: One of the 4 dinner plates was badly chipped. More plates and cups would be nice so dish washer doesn’t have to be run twice daily. Have more paper towels in unit. Real negative is cheap bed frame in rear bedroom. Both of us injured our toes on frame. Not acceptable at this price! Perhaps worst thing was getting trapped in garage upon leaving because we left keys and fob in unit as directed. Caused us considerable delay finding someone to open garage door....resulting in one of our guests missing his plane.

If you plan to stay at the Waikiki Shore this unit has one of the most amazing views. Unit is layed out nicely to take advantage of the square footage. Unit is recently updated so everything is basically new. The lanai door has been updated and really helps to open the space to the outside. I would definitely rent this unit again.

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The condo was very clean and nice. We enjoyed the fireworks from the lanai just as they advertised. The view was spectacular. It made our week even that much more special as we were there to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Donna was amazing to work with as well. She was so quick to respond anytime I contacted her. Would definitely stay again. We even contacted Donna the day we left to try and stay an extra week. Too bad it was rented already. Thank you so very much!

First, the owners are very responsive and friendly. They have a lot of local suggestions. Second, the property is breathtaking; views are amazing with the huge balcony with all external walls as windows, the beds are comfortable, the full kitchen for families is wonderfully convenient and stocked, access to next door's hotel pool and hot tub was awesome, three bathrooms and a washer/dryer makes it super easy for getting cleaned up for 7 people, a private garage with an assigned parking spot made life easy, per/room air conditioning units is wonderful, and so much more. Third, the location can't be any better because everything is in walking distance (even for kids) which minimizes the need to drive and find parking. The beach was only steps away. We will surely be back if schedule permits.

This property is well kept in a lovely mid-century modern beach front apartment building. The views are great and location is perfect - although could be noisy in the evenings. The beach is a little thin right in front of the building - but its an easy walk towards the large hotels area where the beach gets much better. Easy walk to Dukes and convenient parking! 4.5 stars!

I have to admit, i was a bit skeptical renting this place... but after spending a week here... i would now have to say that Captain Cook Resorts has set the bar very high and i would consider any of their properties before booking ANYWHERE they have rentals. Check in: There was no waiting at a counter for someone to check us in. Just a very nice and accommodating property manager that met us at the front. He seemed to be on site very frequently and within 5 min, we were directed and parked in the structure, and standing on the balcony of a simply fabulous condo. spend the extra few bucks for the onsite parking it's worth it... The room was immaculate and clean. The balcony doors open wide and the wind sweeps through... it's on the third floor so no one can just walk up. leaving the doors open to fall asleep to the crashing of the waves... amazing. The kitchen is stocked with utensils, cookware, plates... and everything you need to save money and not eat out every night. There is a security guard posted at the bottom floor that keeps an eye on the place all night and the key fob won't allow you to take the elevator to any floor other than your own. The door lock is a code that is texted to you once you arrive. Plenty of Towels, the beach chairs that came with the place, made the sunset that much better. Yea... book early because i will be staying here again! if i inadvertently book the dates you want, I'm sorry but I'm only saying that to make you feel better.

Easy booking and check in/out process. Great location, loved having the park next door. Beautiful view of the ocean/beach. Although we never really used much, it came pretty stocked (but no coffee). Getting the parking pass for the rental car was a great choice, pretty convenient. Only complaint would be the bed…it was quite comfortable, however, it was two twin mattresses pushed together leading to separation along the way. Overall great experience, would for sure stay again! Mahalo!

Exactly as shown on Vrbo. Very clean and great location. Step out of building and you’re on the beach. Bright and cheery. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Very close to a multitude of restaurants and shopping. In my opinion, perfect accommodations for first time travellers or seasoned travellers. Doesn’t get better than this.

Both the property and our unit were clean and well equipped. Location is ideal, convenient to everything in Waikīkī, but without the hustle bustle of being in the middle of it. Corner location of unit provided panoramic views of both the ocean and the mountains and buildings. Our property manager, Paul was friendly and attentive to our needs. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer!

This condo is right at the end of waikki beach boardwalk. Great location for beach, eateries, shopping, and tour pick ups are conveniently located in short walking distance. Although this condo is dated it was clean, has a small kitchen, king bed and a balcony with great views of waikki beach in a very safe area.

Unit has spectacular views&very clean. Visited in Feb, did not need AC. Lots of windows/doors opened for a good breeze. Besides waves, hear loud city sounds until 10pm & smell Steak Shack (yum!) and neighbor's pot smoking. This unit was 2 to 3x the daily cost of other units we looked at. At that cost, view did not entirely make up for leaky fridge, broken shades, & lack of beach gear*. Next time I would pay less &enjoy just the view over Fort DeRussy &of fireworks, & not pay more for the view of Diamond Head or open ocean. Note: if you are party of 6 (say 2 couples & 2 singles) who are close, this unit was comparatively large &worth the cost if split). Loved the building-would stay again (diff unit).Was very well maintained & secure, requiring proximity fobs to get inside &to use the elevator. One con: fob is required on return from beach but was not waterproof. Keyless entry to the unit itself. Unit looks just like the pictures. Short stay so was able to thrive on the sample toiletries provided. Plenty of tp &towels. We didn't cook, so didn't suffer from there being no kitchen cleaning supplies (that we could find). Fantastic beach access including beach shower right inside the property's secure area. But our unit did not provide any beach towels or gear. Easy walk to Hilton HI Village & Royal Hawaii Shops, ABC stores close, Starbucks even closer *Did not report fridge/shades until departure, so no rating on property responsiveness.

The owner’s made such good use of the space! Despite it being a studio it had all of amenities one might need from an in unit washer and dryer to daily garbage pick up to a full size fridge. The location is great as there is a plethora of places to eat and to shop. The fact that the property is right on the beach was a huge plus! Having a place to rent beach chairs and umbrellas made our beach days relaxing and enjoyable. There is also a nice pathway for morning or evening strolls with the beach as your scenery. The view from the apartment was serene and amazing - exactly how you see in the photos. Martin and Kai were great with communication and made the check in and check out process a smooth one. We would definitely stay here again.

Trieu’s condo is located right on the beach next to Ft. DeRussy Park.. so you get a great beach without the crowds at Waikiki. The condo is very spacious and the lanai is wonderful for watching all the activity on the ocean, the beautiful sunsets and the Friday fireworks from the Hilton. Trieu is a most gracious/generous host.. he allowed us a very late check-out since our flight back home was delayed for 2 1/2 hours. We did not rent a car, took the bus with the bus station close by and walked to all the many restaurants in Waikiki. A very enjoyable experience in Waikiki thanks to Trieu.

This was a very nice condo. Very pretty inside, nice furnishings. For us this was the perfect location. We enjoyed the pool next door at Outrigger Reef and used it almost daily. We liked not having to rent a car and deal with parking and driving. We could walk to most restaurants and if we were exploring away from the beach such as the Art Museum, Iolani Palace, The Bishop Museum we found Lyft to be inexpensive and reliable. There is a trade-off for being beach front, namely, there will be some noise. During the day, no problem. Maybe once a week in the wee hours a few bad apples would go a little crazy. We found the AC was helpful in drowning out noise. I was concerned being on top of the Steak Shack might be a problem but I actually kind of enjoyed the yummy aromas and it was super convenient for a light lunch.
