OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME...

  • 5 of 5
The personal touch we received from Claire from our first inquiry to this property, to the detailed rental package, the arrival greeting and personal tour from Claire of our immediate surroundings when we got there, mid week housekeeping and the personal farewell made this trip feel more like staying with family.
Claire takes pride in her property and made sure we enjoyed our stay. The refrigerator is stocked with some essentials before you arrive and basket full of goodies was very much appreciated by all (fruit, cookies, coffee)!
The condo is on the 10th floor and at the end of the hallway. It was magnificently clean and inviting and we felt right at home. The coin-operated laundry room and trash shoot are located right out the door in the hallway and there is no noticeable noise from either of these rooms. Many nights we would prop open the front door of the condo for a breeze and to listen for our wash to be finished.
The property itself is clean and has a friendly staff. We never got to use the pool but did use the on-site gas BBQ (don’t buy charcoal) nor did we use the free internet provided by the hotel as the condo has it’s own and the cable will reach out on to the table on the lanai! The free parking and internet was a GREAT added benefit as I was still working and we were gone everyday in our rental car. Coffee on the lanai in the early mornings watching the sunrise somehow made having to work while I was on vacation not so bad.
The view of sunrises and evening time of Diamond Head from the Lanai were spectacular, the kind that never turn out as good in a photo. The sounds of the Howler monkeys drifting up from the Honolulu Zoo located a block away brought smiles to our boys (age 7 & 9). We even got to hear some of Jimmy Buffet's concert from the Shell. Everything was is within walking distance for our family of 4, Zoo, Aquarium, International Market Place and even a small grocery store. We cooked and ate mostly in the condo. The on-property market place is also a good place to grab items forgotten and at a reasonable price. There is an ABC store located on the same street. Waikiki beach is minutes walking distance and we found ourselves going back and forth throughout the day to grab things we forgot or make sandwiches, charge camera batteries etc it is that close yet it sits far enough back to avoid the noise of the hustle and bustle of the main street.
This was our first trip to Oahu as a family and it won’t be our last and the only place we will be staying is at Clare’s. In writing this review I looked at the pictures of the property again and they are as they appear. Wish I was still there... Mahalo Claire and hope to see you again in 2008! Darlene, Rick and boys

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE AND AN EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our first Hawaiian Christmas and we were not disappointed. Our plane arrived earlier than was expected, and Clare, the wonderful owner, was at the condo waiting for us with Christmas lights in hand! She gave us a tour of the property and made sure we were comfortable with all the details of the suite. There were five of us, grandma, mom, dad and two teenagers - and we had plenty of space for all of our clothing and luggage. The rental had everything we needed including beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and a beach umbrella. Clare left us a welcome basket with items such as tea, coffee, chocolate and bananas. The linens and towels were hotel quality with many bathroom essentials included. It was a 2 and 1/2 block walk to the beach and many excellent stores and hotels were close by. It was a 15 minute walk to Safeway and a short bus trip to Whole Foods. Each morning we woke up to a beautiful view of the sunrise over Diamond Head (except when we watched the sunrise from the top of Diamond Head!) We used the laundry facilities just out the door, on our floor. Dad and the teenagers were particularly happy with the Wifi and TV. We didn't use the pool, as we were at the beach every day. Parking was convenient and included. However, if you are not planning to leave Waikiki, you don't really need a car - the bus service is excellent. Clare was incredibly welcoming and helpful - we can't say enough and would love to go back. Mahalo, Clare!

LOVED THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I stayed here with our husbands for two weeks and fell in love with this property. The listing information doesn't quite do the property justice as the amenities and appearance is actually more modern than the pictures show. The place was spotless, not only when we arrived but throughout our stay as Clare provided a very through linen and cleaning regime. Nothing was a bother for this wonderful woman - she truly wishes people to experience her Waikiki and is extremely helpful in pointing out some of the lesser known aspects of this little piece of paradise. Everything we could want was provided - even down to condiments in the kitchen, spare sunblock in the bathroom and many other aspects that made us feel like we were staying in an old friends home. We would certainly arrange a return visit should that become a possibility and Clare you will always be welcome in Aotearoa/ New Zealand (and the surfing down in the bottom of the South Island is pretty good too!)

RENT THIS UNIT!

  • 5 of 5
The owner of this property, Clare, is an absolutely genuine and amazing host. She was readily available via e-mail to answer any inquiries I had about the unit, as well as any questions about vacationing in Oahu. She was a vast resource for information such as inexpensive airport shuttles, good restaurants, and other great attractions.
Clare greeted us at the unit when we arrived and familiarized us with everything.
We were floored by the view of Diamond Head; it is not to be beaten! The sliding glass door to the lanai frames the vista perfectly.
The unit is better in person than the photos depict.(TV is a large flat panel, differ than pictured) The Hawaiian decor and lovely furniture was very homey and comfortable. The kitchen was well-appointed and more than adequate. The refrigerator contains some useful items to get you started (butter, ketchup, etc.). We made a quick trip to the market and made breakfast most mornings.
Though one of the two bedrooms was on the smaller side, two couples were quite comfortable sharing the unit. Living space is just right. We found the updated bathroom to be very nice.
Flashlights, first aid kit, emergency doctor numbers were among many things that were unexpected, but very nice to find at the condo. It felt as though we were staying at a relative's home.
The location of the building is fantastic. It's a just 2 min walk to the beach and across from a bus stop.
We will look to book this unit on return trips. Mahalo Clare for your hospitality!

150460 WAIKIKI SUNSET - DIAMOND HEAD VIEW

  • 5 of 5
This unit was everything and more. Updated furnishings including the kitchen including many amenities in the building: laundry facility, small grocery store, pool w grill area. We took advanage of visiting the zoo (very nice), hiked Diamond Head, Manoa Falls Trail, Polynesian Cultural Center, farmer's market, art on the zoo fence, and many of the restaurants offering breakfast/lunch buffets or sunset specials. Being within 2-3 blocks of beach to enjoy the beach sunset, people watch, all the shops. This is a unit we would recommend, and would consider staying if we visit Waikiki Beach area in the future. We did not rent a car, but took advantage of the local bus or shuttle service for a small fee. The owner (Clare) is very organized, offered suggestions, and easy to contact if there were questions. We left with many wonder memories of our vacation. Karen & Steve (Indiana)
