3 STAR STUDIO OCEAN VIEW KITCHEN LANAI SLEEPS 1 TO 4

Honolulu Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Compliment your vacation with this Hawaiian Head Turner !

Island Colony 2206 is a Studio, 1 bathroom with full kitchen, 309 sf Interior, 104 sf lanai, 413 sf total living area. It sleeps 1 to 4 guests. It was remodeled in 2014. It's ideally located in the Heart of Waikiki on the 22nd floor. It has stunning views day and night. The building is one of Waikiki's tallest skyscrapers and features resort-like amenities.

Throughout the unit you'll find smooth ceilings, 18 inch limestone travertine flooring, air conditioning and Internet Wifi.

For the culinary arts, the kitchen features a smooth 4 burner cook top, 1.7 cu ft stainless microwave convection oven range hood, 10 cu ft refrigerator freezer, 92 cu ft built-in hardwood cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, sink, disposal, cookware and tableware. The hardwood drop leaf dining table with 4 chairs works famously on the Lanai. Just bring your favorite herbs and spices.

For sumptuous comfort, the freshly minted living room features a Full Size Bed, Headboard, Italian Leather Sofa Sleeper Couch, Study Desk, Mood Lighting, Coffee Table, 40 inch HD (HDMI) Flat Screen Cable TV, Black Out Drapes, Sheer Curtains, 12000 BTU Air Conditioner, Wardrobes, Suitcase Rack, Clothes Closets, Framed Mirrors, Framed Artworks, Sprinklers and Smoke Detector.

The Living room opens to the Lanai through wall to wall glass and double sliding doors. Just bring your suitcase.

The outsized Lanai is polished off with high-see-through glass railing and wicker furniture. At 220 ft above the water the views are breath taking: sunset, mountain, fireworks, canal and partial ocean view. Just bring your favorite bottle of wine.

Island Colony is a Condotel with 745 units. It's one of ten tallest buildings in Waikiki and taller than Trump Tower. Built to maximum height, 350 ft in 1979, it was superbly constructed by serial award winning Haseko. That's as high as the combined height of Luana, Palms and Aloha Surf. The building association completed a $6.5 million renewal in 2014. This temple of tranquility has all the amenties, security and services you'd expect from a skyscraper. It features many amenities exceeding Three Star Hotel Rating: Recreation Deck, Swimming Pool, Jet Spa, Cabanas, Sauna, Barbecues, Picnic Tables, Fitness Room, Shower, Ice Machines, Convenience Store, Laundromat, Public Parking Garage, Open Air Lobby, 2 Porte-cochères, Cafe, ATM, Concierge services, free Wifi in lobby, 24 hr security guards, security cameras, electronic key fobs plus auto & scooter & bicycle rentals. Just bring your binoculars.

Pamper yourself with a 6 minute walk to Waikiki Beach. It's only a 3 minute walk to the International Market Place (and future home of Sak's). That's where 1,224 people pass every 15 minutes during peak evening hours -- the highest concentration of pedestrian traffic in Waikiki, according to a study completed by the University of Hawaii. King William Kana'ina Lunalilo (1835- 1874) the first elected king in Hawaiian history had a summer residence here.

Located in the Heart of Waikiki you've got easy access to entertainment, dining, Hawaiian Heritage, Asian culture and shopping at world-class Royal Hawaiian Center, Waikiki Beachwalk and Luxury Row . The condo is 4 minutes to the Royal Hawaiian Center, 6 minutes to Waikiki Beachwalk , 8 minutes to Ft De Russy park, 8 minutes to Luxury Row, 16 minutes to the Honolulu Zoo, 16 minutes to Kapiolani Park and 24 minutes to the Waikiki Aquarium. Ala Moana Center is a 19 minute bus ride or 25 minute walk, the most popular attraction in the State, the largest open air shopping mall in the world and the premiere fashion center of the Pacific. For those who want a world-class makeover, Waikiki and Ala Moana offer access to 440 premium stores and restaurants.

A vehicle can be fun to drive but not necessary to access the popular attractions. You can explore Waikiki on foot, take bus tours to Pearl Harbor, Polynesian Cultural Center, Hanauma Bay, Dole Pinapple Plantation, etc. Or you can ride the City Bus to virtually any destination on Oahu. The City Bus and Waikiki Trolley stop within a few steps of the building. The Supershuttle stops right in front of the building. This condo is ideally located to get the most vacation for your money. Just bring your camera and your journal.

Without leaving the building, you can soak up the sun on chaise lounges, take a dip in the rooftop swimming pool, chill out under the cabanas, put on a barbecue party on the recreation deck, work out in the fitness room, get a muscle relaxing treatment in the jet spa or sauna, dine at Jagger's Cafe, purchase some necessities in the convenience store, rent a vehicle or have takeout food delivered. Just call your friends.

Elevate your vacation to stellar heights. Reserve it today!

GREAT CONDO IN HAWAII

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our month holiday at your condo in Hawaii.
The lanai is very large with glass panels, so your view while sitting is perfect. The view down the canal, with the daily activity of paddlers, and the Fri. Night fireworks on the ocean is wonderful.We ate meals on the lanai, just enjoying the view and the beautiful weather.
The condo has been recently updated with new tile floor,cupboards,stovetop etc. The tile floor was so easy to keep clean and great looking. New kitchen cupboards have loads of storage.
The beach is only 2 blocks away and the bus 1 block.Everything you need is within walking distance.
Robin was great to deal with and came immediately when we had a problem with the door lock.
We liked the condo so much, we booked it for a month next year.

HOTEL IS BETTER.

  • 2 of 5
5 stars for the view. very nice from the patio.

3 stars for the complex. elevator broke down while we were there. lanai was under construction.

3 stars for the room. kitchen does have everything you need to make a meal, even though we didn't cook in the apartment. tv was nice. air conditioner works. bathroom is nicely decorated.
but, the shower would turn temperatures unexpectedly. the bathroom walls were falling apart near the bottom. the mattress was not very comfortable. the masterlock compartment did not work with our combination.

now, the owners are meticulous about the cleaning fee. we were cited for water droplets on the patio. there were some obvious things that we missed when we cleaned, i admit, but there were things that they hit us on that didn't make a lot of sense. so, my word of advice is that if you want to keep your cleaning fee deposit, you take a couple hours at the end of your vacation and buy some cleaning products and get every inch of that apartment free of dirt, marks, water droplets, or lint. otherwise, you could pay less, stay in a hotel room, not stress about a cleaning deposit, feel like you are welcome, and not have to worry about red tape and can feel like you can come "home" to a place.

Owner's Response: We are glad Michael enjoyed the unit, complex and location.
All the other 22 guests this year understood how the refundable cleaning deposit works and got the full cleaning deposit refunded.

Although we communicate exhaustively how the refundable cleaning deposit works, this guest wrote: "I didn't know [I was supposed to return the unit in the same condition it was delivered]…. sorry for the inconvenience."

Chalk one up to Murphy’s Law :)

NOT EVERYTHING IT IS MADE OUT TO BE

  • 3 of 5
On the positive side, the condo is clean, centrally located, safe & secure. It has cableTV, WiFi and AirCon.

What you notice once you have been there for 5 mins however are the following;

The towels in the bathroom do not appear to be professionally laundered. They are the smallest towels imaginable - HELLO this is Hawaii - don't you think beach towels might be appropriate in addition to some decent sized bath towels?

There are no dishtowels provided. You can cook on the cooktop but how do you wash & dry the dishes afterwards? There is mis-matched crockery and glassware, pretty basic stuff that needs to be attended to.

Nice Italian leather sofa bed - BUT, no pillows and nothing other than the sheets provided.

We have used VRBO properties all around the world and the ethos seems to be, if you have left-over non-perishable items you leave them behind for the next guest to use (e.g. coffee, tea, sauces, cooking staples, laundry powder etc). There was nothing in this property when we arrived, not even soap in the bathroom! We had plenty of things that other guests might make use of when we left (we had even purchased a beach umbrella that we could not take back home) but we left them at the local backpackers as leaving things for the next guest does not seem to be part of the deal at this property.

The Aircon system has an evaporator tray underneath it out on the Lanai. As the aircon has to work non-stop (it is a small unit) the water overflows onto the carpet on the lanai - expect your shoes, or whatever you leave on the lanai to be wet in the morning.

Much is made in the description of being part of the "Island Colony" location. This property is *not* part of the hotel complex in the same building. The 22nd floor looks like it has not had a refit since the building was completed (30+ years ago?).

There are better properties available for this price.

Owner's Response: Thank you. The subject review is an opportunity for a friendly reminder that there’s a reason for all the details in the vrbo advertisement. It’s so guests coming from all parts of the world with varying customs will know what to expect and what they will need to bring that’s not included and where to call for help if they have any questions during their stay. As other reviewers have mentioned, the condo is accurately described. We have several guests that have been staying in the condo for up to 5 yearly visits. As advertised and shown in the photos the unit has kitchen sink, garbage disposal, hot and cold water. That’s where you wash dishes. Dishwashers are not allowed in the building. Dishes can be dried with a dish towel or paper towels. The queen bed is always made up with 4 standard size pillows and in this instance there were 2 more stored under the queen bed for the sofa sleeper. 4 to 6 pillows should have been enough for 3 persons. To clarify, Island Colony is the name of the entire building comprised of over 700 units. Aqua Skyline at Island Colony is the name the company that operates only 200 of the units. Although Aqua rates for comparable units are significantly higher, their units do not include free in room Wifi, full size refrigerator-freezer, cookware or leather furniture. They don't provide beach towels, beach equipment or foodstuffs either. The property recently completed one of the most recent renewals in Waikiki at a cost of $6.5MM. It included a new swimming pool, deck, outdoor furniture, barbecues, whirlpool, sauna, lobby, e-key security system and elevators with granite, travertine, flagstone, slate, tile, stainless and mahogany finishes. The formidable renovation combined with the building's other features and location, make Island Colony one of the most attractive vacation residences for the budget traveler in Waikiki.

GREAT AFFORDABLE RENTAL FOR A SMALL GROUP

  • 5 of 5
Robin was great to work with, and his instructions on how to reserve the rental were easy to follow. The rental was meticulously clean when we arrived for our two night stay, which was extremely comfortable with working appliances and AC. The best thing about the studio was that it was central and walking distance to pretty much everything, including tons of restaurants, bars, and the beach. I've already recommended the property to a couple friends looking to stay in Waikiki. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: We heartily recommend Debbie H to all vacation rental owners. She was very professional and took care of the Condo like it was her own home. The Condo was clean and ordered when she checked out the same as it was when she checked in. We are glad she and her group felt comfortable to relax, explore and enjoy their vacation in a home away from home in Waikiki.

NICE STAY!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Island Colony Condo for our Honeymoon and it was exactly like it looked in the pictures! Robyn and Mami were great to work with and everything went perfect! It’s a great location if you want to be part of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, you can walk pretty much anywhere and it was really convenient. Our favorite part of Oahu was the Lost TV/Movie hummer tour we took with Gregg and renting a car and seeing the north and east shore! The north and east shores are not as busy as Waikiki and we were more partial to this then the big city. The condo had everything we needed and Robyn and Mami were really accommodating when we wanted to keep our stuff in the room before our flight on Friday night.
Thank You Robyn and Mami for the fabulous stay!
