I have lived in Hawaii for almost 14 years and am still amazed by new and wonderous things almost every day! I am an athletic, adventurous type and enjoy discovering new things with my family. Hawaii offers endless possibilities of activities and surprises to keep me satisfied and seeking more fun and excitement!

Edmund Urban purchased this condo in 2006

Having worked for a residential contractor, I picked up this and 1 more property as fixer-uppers. I was so happy with the end results and the amenities of having vacation rental properties that I decided to keep them for a little while and see how things went. One day lead to another and the rest is history!

The condo is just the right size and having a bedroom, versus a studio, offers a little more privacy. A full kitchen and rooftop bar-b-ques relieves guests from having to dine-out every meal. The dishwasher minimizes time spent doing dishes. It is hard to beat the location... centrally located in Waikiki, close to the best spot on famous Waikiki Beach, restaurants, and shopping, yet not on a noisy, main street.

Hawaii Stay on a Budget

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week and loved it. The instructions that we had in order to get in were perfect. We had a rental car for a few days so we could do some sight seeing on the North Shore, so it was nice to have the complimentary parking spot. After we returned the car, everything we wanted to do was within walking distance, or we used public transportation. The beach is also a short walk from the condo.

Ed was also good to deal with. There were a couple of minor issues like no laundry detergent (which was mentioned in the listing that was included in the unit) and dead batteries in the tv remote (not that we really watched much tv anyway). We contacted Ed about this and someone was supposed to bring over laundry detergent and batteries but this never happened before we left. Also, we noticed in the previous review that the dripping AC unit was supposed to be replaced. This had not been done yet before we arrived, so we had to empty the drip pan out a few times each day - not something we were expecting to do on vacation. Ed was still good to work with though and also let us keep our bags in the unit after check-out because we had a late flight leaving. Thanks Ed!

We really enjoyed this unit - it is very reasonably priced, has a kitchen (which saved us tons of money instead of eating out), the king bed was very comfortable, and had plenty of towels and equipment for the beach. We truly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone who wants to go to Hawaii on a budget.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for your review, Bryce and Catherine! Thank you for your helpful review, and I am so sorry about the laundry detergent and batteries - I asked my cleaner to drop them off when I talked with you, she told me that she was going to do so after the job she was on, and did not follow through until after you checked-out. I should have followed-up with her or touched-base with you, again, to see that it got done... Also, the a/c has been a headache, for me as well. I have been trying to coordinate my a/c contractor to get in there since this past month, but being a hot, mid-summer and having rather full bookings has been problematic for executing. Perhaps I can get it worked in during a future booking if the guests do not mind the activity for a half-day.

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay, otherwise, that we could help accommodate your luggage after check-out, hope to see you back again, and promise to have working remote controls, laundry detergent, and a drip-free a/c :o)! Mahalo nui loa, Ed

Great value for money

  • 4 of 5
Lets start with the owner ,, I found Ed to be VERY easy to deal with, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him, and he went out of his way to make my stay as good as he could, the unit is everything you see on the photo's and the description is very honest.
The location is good, a very easy walk to everything and the facilities at the apartment block are great.. the only problems I had were the guy next door liked to play his computer game ( I think World of Warcraft ) I think, VERY loud ( Not anything Ed can do about that ) and Ed has put in a nice new flat screen tv but who ever installed it has put text captioning on and you can't turn it off and I wanted to watch the TV NOT read it but I am sure that can be fixed , but what took us from 5 star rating down to 4 star rating was the A/Cond I don't who how old it is but I think it could be last century, it is loud , ineffective and as it drips so much condensation I had to empty the drip tray every two hours NOT something I wanted to have to do on My hoilday.
But as I said ED was GREAT to deal with it was great value and had everything you could need for a great holiday

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for your review, Ian! I appreciate your compliments and helpful review. I am sorry... I agree that there are a few upkeep issues that I have been meaning to address that have fallen behind.

Regarding the A/C upgrade, I have not had this unit very long, a couple/few years, but did not realize it was as loud as it is and the drip pan does not evaporate as some others do. I plan to swap-out with a new one by next month.

I am sorry, too, that I was not able to help you with the Closed Captioning on the newer TV. I called Best Buy, where I purchased it, and they said that we should have been able to get the CC turned-off from the TV menu button, if not from the universal remote, as I mentioned. I definitely would have stopped by to take care of it if I were not off-island during your visit.

I will mention to the Resident Manager about the loud World of Warcraft player, so that he can follow-up and take action if there are enough complaints. I would not have known if you did not provide your review - thank you so much!

Mahalo, again, for staying at our condo, I hope to have you stay with us again should you make another trip to Hawaii, and appreciate your review.
Cheers!
Ed

Perfect place and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
We are so happy that we rented Ed's place. The place is very clean and spacious. Plus, the parking spot was so convenient- even when we accidentally parked in the wrong spot, everyone was nice about reminding us of the right one! We had coffee out on the balcony in the morning and wine in the evening. We loved having our own kitchen and all the comforts of home. The location is awesome! Even though we had a car for a few days, we walked to everything- dinner, the spa, the beach. It made our stay affordable and easy. Ed was so nice to work with prior to arrival, he gave great tips for our vacation and was very accommodating. On the day we left, he even let us leave our bags in the condo to come pick up in the evening before our 11pm flight. We had gotten engaged the night before so it was so great to enjoy our last day without having to worry about our bags. It was really nice and something he did not have to do. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone!

Owner's Response: Wow, mahalo nui loa, Amanda & Albert, for such a complimentary review - I am very grateful! And a huge congratulations on your engagement! That is so heartwarming and a first in over 5 years of vacation rental guests. I am also happy to hear that everything worked out for your visit to the island and hope to have you back again for future visits. It was my pleasure being able to help with leaving your bags later on your last day, and sharing suggestions that I thought may have made things smoother and more enjoyable for your stay. Aloha and kipa hou mai!

A Nice, Charming and Affordable Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5
We chose this place because of the combination of cost versus features. It's a great basic place to stay - a kitchen, one large bed, bathroom, etc. The patio has a great view. It is in the heart of Waikiki and has a covered parking spot. We found it to be a nice place. We weren't at home much, so it was a great choice to have a place like this to crash in. We took advantage of the fridge and had breakfast here and stored away some desserts. The air freshener used kind of makes it smell like a tanning salon, so I'd recommend a different scent :) It was a good stay. If I had any complaints, it would be that the air conditioner in the living room window is exceptionally loud, making it hard to watch TV or a movie. And second, a type of ant or something seemed to make it nearly impossible to have food in the kitchen unless it was in the fridge. But I've noticed Hawaii in general is full of insects, it's hard to avoid I suppose. We liked it and wouldn't be opposed to staying here again. They have good supplies for beach trips and stuff - we just didn't have time.

Comfortable, Conveniently Located, Affordable!

  • 5 of 5
Ed's vacation rental was better than described and has everything that you would need. His customer service was commendable and helpful. Everything was clean and prepared when we arrived. I want to say, Aloha and mahalo again ED!
LOCATION: 2 blocks from one of the main Waikiki strips that has great public transportation, convenient stores, and restaurants. 5 minute walk to Waikiki beach.
AMENITIES: Air-conditioning, cleaning supplies for all purposes, towels (beach, hand, bath), linens, cooler, beach floats, beach chairs, snorkel gear, hangers for clothing, and more.
KITCHEN: Convenient dishwasher, large 2-door fridge, and all utensils you would need to make meals.
LIVINGROOM: Large, very comfortable sofa bed, TV with basic cable, DVD player, and dining bar/countertop.
LANAI: Nice, breezy balcony with chairs and table for lounging (also for drying beach towels and gear)
BEDROOM: Comfortable king size bed, side tables with lamps, 2 closets with ample space for clothing and a fan.
BATHROOM: Bright vanity-lit mirror, linen closet, and multi-setting showerhead.
RECOMMENDATION: I would highly recommend this rental. It is very comfortable, conveniently located, and affordable.
**Having lived on the island for my college years, I know Oahu better than most locals, HERE ARE SOME TIPS**
TRANSPORTATION: The public bus will not let you on with luggage. Contact Roberts Hawaii, and they have a roundtrip shuttle service for $24 for person, which includes a greeting at the gate. A Taxi to the rental will be around $50 with tip. A 4-day bus pass is $25 and a monthly pass is $60, so if you stay more than 8 days a monthly pass is a great investment. At times, you can sell it back to someone willing to buy!
GROCERY: Waikiki has many fully stocked convenient stores, you pay $$ for convenience (e.g. $9 gallon of milk). There is a Walmart, Safeway, Foodland a couple of miles away.
RESTARAUNTS: If you want some amazing, and cheap local food, try Zippy’s, Liliha Bakery (coco puffs), Leonard’s malasadas, Atkinson Grill, Mitsuken, Pongo’s kitchen, Ray’s Kiawa chicken (North shore), Wailana’s.
BEACHES: Most beaches on the town-side of Oahu are man-manipulated. The sand is course and coral is rough on the shore. The best, natural beaches are located on the North Shore of Oahu: Laniakea (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles sunbathe daily), Waimea beach (20 foot rock diving available), Sunset beach. Sandy’s beach on the western shore is amazing to see

spring in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5
What a great weekend (4nights) we had. Many thanks to Ed for being so very helpful in every direction. It was easy to arrive/enter and relax with all the Information (directions etc.) given. It was very comfortable, clean, very thoughtful furnitured and with the kitchen fully equipped, we didn't miss anything.
Having rented a car shortly it was very practical to use the parking space and the provided roadmap, came in very handy!
The condo could have been in a better place, very convinient to get everywhere around. Near to the beach and Promenade but well away from the main roads. The equippment for the beaches were very useful, so we didn't have to take those items from back home with us.
Staying there over Friday night we had time to enjoy the fireworks at the beach. Great view and Show! For breakfast it was only a short distance to ME BBQ, zeor atmosphere but fantastic Food for a pricing one wouldn't expect in a touristic place like Waikiki. Very ONO!! Only Sunday it is closed. We enjoyed our stay very much so we must return to explore more as we couldn't go hiking as planned. But going around the Island by car on our own gave us a good idea what it must be like to hike or at least have a short strole through the countryside.
We love to return and stay at your place again.
