Waikiki Shore Reviews


We always stay at this property.. love the location and amenities… unfortunately this time the building is undergoing renovations which made it inconvenient. Parking was often blocked by construction workers and the lobby was closed. The unit itself was nice- had to call regarding a couple of issues like light out and broken dryer handle but all were fixed quickly. Looking forward to coming back after all the renovations are completed.

Highly recommend this unit if you’re looking to stay in Waikiki. It was clean and spacious and having parking included was a huge bonus as that is quite expensive. The view was very pretty and building amenities are very nice; you’re walking to everything you would want to be within Waikiki. Management was quick to respond when I had questions. I will rent from again. Mahalo!

Beautiful view of the boat harbor & sunsets. Enjoyed “home cooked” breakfasts on the lanai on patio furniture. Well-equipped kitchen, nice furnishings, quiet efficient AC. Enjoyed the use of boogie board, sand toys, beach towells &!shopping cart. What a great Hawaiian experience!

This property is right on the ocean and we knew we would have a view. We didn't know we would be at the tree height level, and next to the shorter building of the Army Museum. So, we had the advantage of being a little above the action (walkers, joggers, etc) and at the height of the bird activity in the trees. It was a welcome advantage, very peaceful to sit on the lanai and watch the world turn. Although construction was in full force at our arrival and during our stay, it wasn't a barn burner by any means. The beach had chair and umbrella rentals right outside for reasonable cost. Turtles swim on both sides of the great jetty that extends out from the property and there's a few food services right on the property. The Steak Shack was a smashing surprise - we went twice and could have more. We had a small issue with the TV, which we could have resolved if we took the time to read all the directions on display, but even so, after I reached out to the owner through VRBO, he quickly responded to resolve the issue. We rented a car, and were fortunate enough to get one of the few rental parking spots, which made it perfect to launch from each day to explore different parts of the island. It was and will remain a lifetime highlight that won't be forgotten. Would recommend to anyone.

We enjoyed staying at this place due to being so close to everything. We walked everywhere and had no trouble with access to entertainment, restaurants, shopping, and beaches.

Good location and the beach near the hotels was busier with boats coming to shore on the beach. The beach here is less crowded and there is a nice walking path close to food and shopping. Really enjoyed our stay. The fold out couch is a small bed size double so would be tight for 2 adults.

October 2023

Condo was as described and very clean. A small check in issue that was handled by management in a timely manner. 2 full days of jackhammering outside the condo took away from the perfect stay. The owner gave some compensation for the noise and seemed unaware of the construction noise. I would definitely recommend this unit, it was just bad timing for my particular visit.

October 2023

Stunning location, right on the beach. Perfect for a laid-back, working vacation. Reliable wifi! On the third floor, this one-bedroom was suitable for three. View from west-facing lanai were the tops of palm trees, the ocean, and Derussy Park - looks better than on website. We realized only the day before arriving that we needed to check in early - Cheri of Captain Cook Resorts and property manager Paul Tucker were great and our last moment's notice was accommodated. Easy check-in with Paul and he was responsive when we needed him for something else during our stay. Nice kitchen, refrigerator and freezer, microwave. Nice bathroom - good sized shower. Clean. Comfortable bed. Beach chairs, beach umbrella, and beach tent, included. The lobby is being renovated and there's noise from the construction but that never bothered us. Each morning people congregate in front of Waikiki Shore to watch the sunrise - from there you have a panoramic view of Waikiki beach and Diamond Head. Steak Shack and Banan (banana ice cream) are on ground floor. Monkey Pod restaurant is a ten second stroll on the beach, next door. There many restaurants and bars minutes away. We've previously stayed at five different hotels in Honolulu and this was our first Vrbo stay. What a spectacular find! Hope to return soon!

This property, the views of the ocean and all offered amenities are a perfect stay. We just had a little trouble checking in as it was Paul’s day off and we weren’t given the # of who was working that day ( we had to call Paul a few times before he answered.)But Vincent was excellent! Would highly recommend!

We stayed here for a week in october, and booked through VRBO. I will say that the pictures of our condo on the listing were truthful and the views were exceptional, but the disappointments in this place far outweighed the beauty of the unit and the location. CONS 1. This is NOT an accessible building. There are no disabled parking stalls. Parking is an unholy nightmare. The stalls are microscopic and barely fit a minivan. We struggled with getting our wheelchair family member in and out of the car on a daily basis. We asked for a new stall and that wasn't much better, in fact it was constantly blocked on all sides by construction vehicles and random people parking without permits. We even had someone in our stall more than once. It was so challenging to get in and out of the parking slot, along with loading our wheelchair family member that we DREADED leaving the condo with the car. This was a huge failing of the building and when we confronted the staff many times, their attitudes were flippant. Being disabled didn't affect them one bit. And there are additional fees for parking, almost $300 for the week. 2. The entry for the unit is right at the corner of a stoplight with a constant parade of pedestrians. It is very challenging to even turn in or out. 3. The traffic in the area is horrendous. It can take a long time to get anywhere. There are many luxury stores near by within walking distance, and several ABC stores for souvenirs. There are only a handful of restaurants an

We have rented w/VRBO for many properties (including at Waikiki Shore) over the years. I generally like to give positive reviews & will only critique minimally/thoughtfully if needed. However, this particular experience was one of the worst experiences in customer service & the actual unit(s) (we rented two) were not as advertised. Bare bone amenities, several issues with both units. Customer service was poor. Kitchen cookware & dining ware, very minimal, no beach gear (e.g., units were for 6 but only had some things for 4). Multiple physical/property issues - smoke detector, garbage disposal, fans don't work, stovetop/oven issues, mold in shower, peeling of wallpaper, etc. I would be willing to discuss with the Property Manager our concerns. I tried many times to talk to someone by phone.

This place was great! I spent a lot of time on the lanai that had an excellent view of the ocean and mountains, including a front row seat to the fireworks on Friday nights. Outside the front door is an amazing view of Diamond Head. The beach is steps away and listening to the waves at night was soothing. It is a great location and close to everything - I ended up walking all over and then would stop at the many places to eat and shop along the way. The bed was hard on my back at first, but once i got used to it, I slept so well. I recommend an eye covering if you need one as it doesn't get super dark in there. There was construction going on in the lobby area but I never noticed any noise coming from it. The one issue was that Uber kept going to the hotel next door for pick ups/drop offs but it's not too far of a walk to get back to where you need to. The location and views can't be beat and I would definitely stay here again!

Pro’s Early check in was a bonus, Million dollar view and close to all amenities, building was clean and well kept and the staff of Castle Waikiki were very nice. Con’s We were lead to believe this was a 2 bedroom from the description and pictures at time of booking. They have since changed the pictures so you can barely see the twins beds in the picture with the couch which btw are in the living room area with an accordion room divider. Reviews state that the beds are comfortable - they are NOT - main bedroom king bed, squeaks, is lumpy and all of our backs ached everyone morning in all of the beds, pillows were terrible, wallpaper loosing on the walls, dirty walls, paint chipping off in the main bathroom, shower vents dirty, light in shower didn’t work, roller blind in main bedroom broken, dryer vent not hooked up properly so the dust balls come out and it makes the second bathroom so hot it was like a sauna, old and worn furniture looks like it came from the Golden Girls set, main TV remote broken, end table light broken - the bulb was actually dangling, worn kitchen and bathroom cabinets, very minimal cookware and dinner ware for a family to cook, fry pans Teflon peeling off, all door in the bathrooms and bedrooms are slated so anyone can look into the rooms and sound carrys across the entire condo and the worst thing was we killed 2 cockroaches and 1 escaped. I am usually not a complainer, have stayed in 2 or 3 star hotels but they were not misleading.

Oahu is tremendous and this location gives you a great view of one of the most popular spots on the island. 10 minute walk from just about anything you could think of. Property management is amazing as well, zero issues, and even helped us find parking in a pinch. Can’t wait to come back! Zero issues with noise or disruption at all.

I would stay in this building again. The location is perfect. Great for walking anywhere you need to go for shopping or food. The food place on the first floor is so good. The view is wonderful. The parking lot is convenient. I would suggest they put in a full size mirror by the front entry door and add more towel hooks. There’s nowhere to dry towels. One of the two towel hooks was missing. There’s also nowhere to put your clothes. You have to live out of your suitcase. All the other pluses of location and convenience made it worth it.

Loved this condo. Since it's next door to the army museum and park, there are unobstructed views facing west from this 10th floor unit. You get ocean, city and mountain views. Also perfect view location for the Friday night fireworks. Well equipped kitchen (dishes, cookware, utensils) for cooking breakfast most mornings. While the building doesn't have a pool, the beach was just out the the ground floor. People have left Tommy Bahama chairs in the closet so the was nice to take to the beach with us. Someone left a review to close the curtains if you're gone in the afternoon to reduce the heat. Good recommendation. We rented a car only for one day. The host Paul was helpful in arranging one night's parking in the garage. We would definitely stay here again.

The condo is conveniently located in the center of town. There is a Starbucks right downstairs (hallelujah) along with several other shops and restaurants. We enjoyed dining at the Monkeypod and shopping at the local ABC stores for fresh fruit and other necessities. The only downside is the parking. It is a quarter of a mile from the unit and costs $78/day. We knew it would be high but weren't prepared for that big of an expense. There really aren't any other options. -- Communication with the host was great. She always got right back to us whenever we reached out. The unit was comfy and clean and we loved enjoying coffee on the balcony each morning. There was a 3-toed pigeon that visited every day. We loved being able to take the elevator to the ground floor and walk right out to the beach! We would definitely go back and highly recommend this condo. :)

On the beach with a lanai/balcony the essentially looks over a park setting. A perfect spot to watch Friday night fireworks and jumping off spot for walking to restaurants, nightlife or daytime shopping sprees. A walk on the beach at sunset or a dip in the ocean.

Clean pressed sheets, comfortable bed in the bedroom. Acceptable pull out bed for another couple in the front room. Impressive cleanliness! Fridge with an ice maker with plenty of good fresh ice. Great location, close to many great restaurants and even a good fast food spot (Steak Shack) right below us. Great on the beach location, great for people watching and sunset viewing! Air conditioning worked beautifully! Grateful for the washer and dryer…worked beautifully! The only con (and would not be a deal breaker) is that it would benefit from new window coverings, especially if they were black out curtains. I did fine sleeping with an eye mask though. Two bathrooms a huge bonus! Plenty of extra linen. We appreciated having a locked safe.

What a perfect place to stay for an extended family. The views and the sounds of the waves were magnificent! The lanai was the perfect place to watch the Friday night fireworks. We made full use of the well stocked kitchen for a couple of meals. The ice maker in the refrigerator came in handy for our tiki drinks. Having the use of a parking space is a huge bonus for Waikiki! The washer and dryer came in handy before our 7-night Hawaiian cruise! The communication with Tommy (owner) was great! He answered every question and had great advice for things to do. The only negative thing I can say is that there was construction with the building and several power outages during our stay. However, this was out of the owners control. We planned accordingly and were ok (minus one CPAP user). Would definitely stay again with a large group!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. 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 recently stayed at Waikiki Shore 0612, and I have mixed feelings about the experience. Let's start with the good stuff. The location of this place is incredible! It's right by Fort DeRussy military gardens, and if you want to be in the heart of Waikiki, this is the spot. The views of the sunset from the balcony were stunning, and it definitely added a special touch to our stay. Plus, being so close to the beach was a big bonus.Unfortunately, I can't say the same about the actual unit itself. The kitchen equipment was disappointing. It felt like it was on its last legs, and the quality was lacking. Maintenance was a problem too. The window blinds were hanging by a thread, and it felt like we were on display to the whole world at night when they weren't properly attached. This made us uncomfortable and concerned about our privacy. The information about the unit, like the lighting and furniture, seemed outdated and overdue for an upgrade.On the bright side, I do see potential in the building. I'd be willing to stay here again, but only if I could choose a different unit that's better taken care of. The location is the highlight, and with some improvements, it could be a much more enjoyable place to stay.In summary, Waikiki Shore 0612 has an amazing location, but the unit itself leaves a lot to be desired in terms of condition, maintenance, and amenities. If you prioritize location over luxury and are okay with compromising on the quality of the unit, this place might still be worth considering, but just be prepared for a less-than-perfect experience.

Loved the accessibility to the beach and the view of the beach/ocean from the balcony!! The studio condo was perfect for us. Wish the Waikiki Shores wasn’t doing so much construction as only one elevator was available for the majority of the time…lots of waiting

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Can’t beat the location right on the beach. Close to restaurants and shopping. Lots within walking distance.This is the 3rd time staying at Waikiki Shores, always great room and property manager service. Although this visit, with renovations happening... we had 2 power outages for several hours. We had to get ice to keep food in refrigerator cold thru the night and then again several hours the next day. There was no compensation for the inconvenience. Building kept switching back and forth between elevators that were working, (had to wait several minutes to get up or down or take the stairs). The condo itself was excellent, fully stocked, clean and ready for our stay. We will stay again after renovations are done!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a fabulous stay at this beautiful unit. It was walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go in Waikiki. The views were gorgeous. An added bonus was being there on Friday night and seeing the fireworks from the Hilton. I think our view was better than from the Hilton!!

Rating Details: The property manager was very unhelpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: A very beautiful condo with exceptional views from the balcony and front door side. Very clean and everything provided so you can cook if you want to. Excellent washer and dryer. Excellent shower. King size bed, very comfortable. The only problem we had was that we were not informed about the planned electricity outage prior to arrival which was very disappointing. 8 hours without electricity was unacceptable. The electricity was also turned off the following day. This meant no aircon, cooking, tv, wifi or lighting. They also turned off the water for 4 hours during the day meaning no toilet or showers. If we had of been informed, we could have stayed elsewhere but we were not given the choice. This situation impacted our holiday quite significantly as we were not able to make contact with our family back in Australia. Very disappointed with the lack of communication.

We were delighted with our condo, and all the extras that the owners provided (beach chairs, umbrellas, plenty of coffee and condiments and conveniences). The location was very good with a wraparound view. The three separate bathrooms were a bonus that we had not expected. Communication with the owners was excellent throughout. We would stay here again.

Very nice unit located right on Waikiki beach. Excellent views of surprisingly small sand beach, ocean and boats. A well used walkway and stone breakwater offer a quieter side for waves if needed. A park next door reduces the crowd. The building includes a ground floor with gift shop, juice bar, ice cream, and Steak Shack for grilled meat. These are great options but if cooking smells or crowds bother you, this is not unit for you. The balcony is set back from the building edge overlooking a small courtyard housing the ice cream and steak counters, which can get quite busy. Right outside the courtyard is the rental for umbrellas, chairs and surf lessons. We enjoyed the closeness of everything and people watching, but it might not be for everyone. The balcony is also under the two story courtyard cover, which is great for shade, but if you are a sun worshiper you will need to go to the beach, which is amazingly close. None of this is a complaint, just didn’t want anyone to be balcony location and views. It’s a great, comfortable well maintained unit in a quieter but delightful location. Owner was very helpful and accommodating, easy to work with and quick to respond. If you are looking for a nice spot on beach this is it.

We had a fantastic stay at this apartment. Communication with the host was outstanding and they were truly accommodating in every way. A great area of Waikiki. Walking distance to everything and the views from the balcony are breathtaking. We can’t wait to come back !

Location, location, location, a great view and close to everything in Waikiki. The condo was spacious and had all of the amenities to start us off. Paul, the property manager was right there to meet and check us in. We were aware in advance that only 1 elevator was working and we were somewhat prepared that it would take extra time to get back and forth from the ground floor to our condo on the 14th floor. The lobby was still under construction so I'm sure there will be more of a resort feel when that is completed. Additionally, we found out that the power would be out the night before we departed due to necessary work on the electricity. This was a hassle as it was very warm while we were there and there would be no air conditioner or lights starting at 11:00 p.m. If you are renting a car I would suggest a compact car if you are parking at the property. The parking is extraordinarily tight. All in all we loved the condo and would definitely be back in the future.

Just to be clear, this condo is on the beach. Sometimes a few steps means a quarter of a mile. Not so with this one. Its also bigger and nicer than we expected from the listing. Theres a very convenient side entrance directly into the Outrigger Reef resort next door for great drinks, dining and Starbucks. This condo is less that 3 blocks to significant shopping, dining and night life. It doesnt come with a parking spot and we rented a car. That was a mistake. We will return, we will use the same condo, but no need for a rental car. For the one or two times you drive out to sight see, you can rent a car, scooter or slingshot very cheap from stores in walking distance. Most desirable tours pick you up at Trump Tower directly across the street. Uber is everywhere in this area. Great visit.

We loved it. Anytime you can find a reasonable condo on the beach is worth it and this place is worth it. The building is undergoing some renovations and you are limited to one elevayor but you make it work. Parking is across the street and it comes with all the amenitoes even a washer and dryer which I didnt know. The bed was king sized so my daughter and I could share, it was great.
