Great place to stay for a great price

My wife and I stayed here for a little over a week in the middle of May and it was perfect for our vacation. The condo was very clean and worked great for our needs. Along with beach towels there was a large blanket that can be used on the beach, two beach chairs, and snorkel equipment (minus the fins) for two.
Located in the hotel are two restaurants, one one the second floor and one on the first floor. The burgers on the first floor restaurant (Teddy Burgers i think) were amazing.
We had a rental car which we parked about a block away at the Banyan hotel for 10 dollars a night or 60 a week. Its cheaper than parking in at the Waikiki Grand (18 bucks a night). But there are bus stops close by and you can walk to everything there on Waikiki.
The only thing that kind of bugged us was that we were serenaded every night and morning by the neighbors birds (parrots we think). It was kind of entertaining after a while because they would imitate our whistles and the beeping of a backing up truck in the distance. Nothing to drive people away and I dont know if they are permanent residents or not but just wanted to share the info.
In all we would really recommend choosing a condo that is privately owned over paying full price in a hotel. Its a great deal and we loved being able to cook our own breakfast and put use the fridge for leftovers.
Thanks again for providing such a great place to spend a vacation!

Thank you for all of the kind words and your objective perspective. We are very proud of all of our units and try to give our guests and travelers a great value.
You are right, renting a privately owned condominium is very different than renting a hotel room. There are owner occupants, long term tenants and vacationers in this building. All of which make it a very unique place with so many options.
Thank you again. We look forward to your return visit,
Steve, Property Manager
