Stayed: July 2012
We really enjoyed staying in this condo, the views were fantastic, the balcony was blissful (the couch was SO comfy I took naps out there! If I hadn't had the baby, I would have tried to sleep out there at least one night), and the unit itself is very nice. We were travelling with our 8 month old baby, so we spent a lot of the time during her naps hanging out on the balcony watching the waves and the surfers.
We realized at the end of the stay that the snorkeling right off the sea wall in front of the building is spectacular, so we ended up buying a cheap mask and snorkel and spending a lot of time out there - this was nice because we were a little limited in terms of where we could go with the baby, so it was great to have everything we could want right there.
Love the location - very quiet, but you can walk easily into Waikiki, and San Souci Beach was RIGHT next door, which is a fantastic beach for kids and babies - very calm, nice sandy beach and warm water, plus some nice snorkeling as well. Having the parking was awesome.
Only small niggle - the property has its own website with more info, including a floor plan - the floor plan has a closet labelled "W/D" (washer/drier), and this was actually a key factor in our deciding to rent this place rather than some others we were considering - with the baby, we wanted to be able to travel light, and so we packed a very limited set of clothes for everyone, expecting to be able to do laundry easily and often. It turns out that there isn't actually a W/D in the unit, so the floor plan must be outdated. There is a laundry room in the basement of the building, but it takes a large number of quarters so hunting down appropriate change was annoying. Luckily we managed to stretch our clothing to only have to do laundry once. It ended up being only a minor blip, and if I hadn't been expecting the W/D in the unit, it would not have effected our stay that much at all.
We would definitely rent it again, and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
