About Tom Merrick

Aloha,

I am a long time resident of Hawaii, having moved here in 1978 from Minnesota. I completed my college at the University of Hawaii where I graduated with a Civil Engineering degree and then went on to work for a couple of large general contractors here. I decided to retire in 2009 and purchased these three vacation rentals. I love providing a great place for guests to stay and to be able to interact with and spread Hawaii's aloha to people from all over the world. We would love to have you as our guests.

Tom Merrick purchased this condo in 2009

In the middle of most

  • 5 of 5

We planned our journey months in advance and these are our experiences:

1. Planning and booking - great communication with Tom, recommendation of transportation from airport to apartment worked out smooth.

2. Tom introduced us to the apartment quick and easy, just what we wanted after travelling for 30 hours from Sweden.

3. Apartment - everything what we needed was there and it was correct described. As our mobile phone turned out to be not functioning in US, we were very pleased to see that internet was just a cable away. We managed to solve our communicatin that way instead.

4. Our summary is: You probably can't get any more for the money and so close to everything in Waikiki or Honolulu. If we ever will return to Hawaii we know where to stay.

The perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks in the Ali'i unit in March of 2015. The unit is just as pictured, very nice, well appointed and taken care of. The building is great, the perfect location, close but just off, Waikiki, with great views and proximity to everything! Tom and his staff made everthing about booking and check-in very easy. There is no reason to stay at one of the hotels ever again, as the room is larger, better and just as close to all the action. Needless to say, we can't wait to go back!

‘Secure and affordable family accommodation’

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived the service was excellent. Because we were staying for a week we were picked up from the airport and delivered to our hotel. The hour was late but we were meet at the door and had a brief and helpful orientation. Loved the central location. We are pretty independent travellers and had basically bus services at our door, ATM nearby as well as a supermarket just down the road. Facilities at the unit are good and allowed us to prepare family meals onsite. A small bathroom problem was quickly fixed and we appreciated the chocolate macadamias left for us. We loved our stay and would have no hesitation returning.

Wonderful condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

Aloha. While this was our 5th trip to the island, this was our 1st time renting a condo. Tom and Kelly made the process worry free. From booking, getting the keys, check-in/out, everything was well explained and handled with ease. Tom also went above & beyond in pre-purchasing monthly bus passes for my Mother and I.

The Ali'i condo was exactly as advertised and we sure enjoyed it. The views from the condo and the end of the hallway are spectacular. The kitchen was extremely well outfitted and we wanted for nothing. It was a very nice to be able to cook some of our meals. It made going out for a dinner a real treat.

Finding beach chairs, towels, boogie board and snorkel equipment in the condo was a bonus. We sure made use of the beach chairs.

Transportation from the Marine Surf was as easy as it gets. The bus stops right outside the door on Kuhio and made it easy to get around. Other transportation was easy to arrange with a phone call from the condo. It was easy to request pick-up at the ROSS Department store right across the street on Seaside. If you wish to rent a car, the condo's parking spot is a huge bonus. Parking in Waikiki can get extremely costly.

Restaurants are abundant and within an easy walking distance. ABC stores are everywhere and Food Pantry Grocery is a few blocks away. We picked up most of our groceries at Walmart and Don Quiotes. Shopping is available in walking distance and Duke's Lane is one block away. The Ala Moana Shopping Centre and Walmart are an easy bus ride from the condo. If you wish to go further afield to flee markets or the Aloha Stadium, we called shuttle services. The cost was reasonable and well worth it. Getting around the island is fairly easy, but traffic congestion is high and don't expect to get anywhere in a hurry. Most islanders are very helpful, so don't hesitate to ask folks for help.

The Wi-Fi along with the free long distance to Canada was a nice bonus. It made keeping in touch with family and keeping up with email easy. Was nice to not come home to a zillion emails. We used the wifi for searching things on the island, shuttle services and bus times. If you know the bus you need to catch and it's easy from THE BUS website, it will tell you when the next bus is coming to your stop.

Our three weeks just flew by. Would definitely recommend this condo and will look at booking it again on our next visit to Waikiki. Mahalo Tom and Kelly

Waikiki is the place to be

  • 4 of 5

Staying at Marine Surf was great, best spot in Waikiki. Being situated on Seaside Avenue is no more than a five minute walk to the beach. Food Pantry for groceries is just a few blocks away. Seeing we had free parking we went ahead and rented a car for serveral days. Went and enjoyed the North Shore. Modest condo very clean and well maintaned. Went to Aloha Stadium, visited the Dole Plantation, the Macadamia Nut Farm, Polynesian Cultural Center, rented a kayak in Kailua. Restaurants, Hula Grill, Chuck's Steak House, Shore Bird etc. The weather was fantastic. Lynne & Gaétan March 2015

Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a week staying in the Beachcomber unit, I previously have stayed in the Palm and 2 other units in the complex. Nothing much to add to previous reviews. Tom is excellent to deal with, the units are exactly as pictured, location is very convenient to everything in Waikiki. Very good water pressure as well as hot water in the shower. I tried the happy hour at the restaurant on the main floor of the building, it was very good. Most importantly, as a lady travelling alone, I always felt very safe, both in the building and on the street. Tom, looking forward to my November visit
