BRIGHT AND CLEAN STUDIO, CLOSE TO WAIKIKI BEACH

Waikiki Hotel Rental Photos and Description

Studio Apartment, walking distance to Waikiki Beach!

Aloha, and welcome to our home away from home!

As owners of this unit, we spend time here at least 3-5 times per year. We want you to enjoy it just as much as we do, and with that in mind, we maintain the suite on regular basis. We continue to make upgrades to add to the comfort and conveniences anyone would want while visiting this bit of paradise.

Finding a great vacation home shouldn't mean sacrificing convenience!

Just to name a few popular locations within walking distance of this condo:

Waikiki Beach: 6 minutes!

International Market Place: 3 minutes

Historic Waikiki Trail: 4 minutes

Royal Hawaiian Hotel: 4 minutes

Royal Hawaiian Center: 4 minutes

Waikiki Beachwalk: 6 minutes

Luxury Row: 8 minutes

Honolulu Zoo: 16 minutes

Waikiki Aquarium: 24 minutes

City Bus stop and Waikiki Trolley stop: 1 minute

If you do decide you would like to rent a car to explore more of Oahu, there is an 'Enterprise Car Rental' on the south side of the building.

When you've explored the Island, and you are ready to come home to relax, you will find a condo that feels like home, and not like a typical hotel room.

Recently remodeled top to bottom, we offer a wall mounted flat screen TV with cable, free WiFi, a nicely stocked kitchenette for light cooking, a comfortable queen size bed with bedding and pillows replaced on a regular basis, a large lanai with lots of room to relax and enjoy the views of the Ali Wai Canal, and so much more.

On the 6th floor of the building you will find all the amenities you need. Pool, Hot Tub, Sauna, Laundry facilities, BBQs (you can borrow grilling utensils from the security desk) and even a small convenience grocery store.

The building has a security desk in the lobby that is manned 24/7 for your peace of mind.

Our goal is that you will enjoy staying in our vacation home as much as we do. Our photos are all recent, (June 2012) and more are coming soon.

Please contact us with any questions you have, and we will be happy to be of assistance to you.

Things to note:

There is no housekeeping service, although the suite is inside the Island Colony Hotel. This means that you, the tenant, will be responsible for your own laundry, toiletries, cleaning, etc.

We ask each tenant to replace supplies used during their stay (eg. toilet paper, paper towels) so that the next guest won't be caught without upon arrival.

There is street noise, so if you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring earplugs. We are located on the 12th floor, and while things get quiet later at night, during the early night hours, there is a lot of street activity! Big City! :-)

*** Please note, we have a 7 night minimum stay ***

*** $250 deposit required to hold a booking ***

Dan has been going to Hawaii for over 40 years, and loves every visit. Having a place of our own to come 'home' to at each visit makes the trip that much more relaxing.

We live in Burnaby BC, so with the long wet winter season, a trip to Hawaii is never far off!

Dan Retel purchased this hotel in 2010

Our suite is within walking distance to everything you need, but tucked just far enough away to feel like you can really relax at the end of a long day exploring Oahu.

The large Lanai is a perfect spot to put your feet up and watch the day start, or end.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this studio suite in Island Colony Condo/Hotel. The space was really well utilized: it is comfortably and attractively furnished. The wifi came in handy, and the TV was just the right size. The hot tub was a great place to unwind in the evenings, but the pool was chilly. In the neighbourhood we were comfortable to come and go easily even after dark. Dawn was very helpful in answering questions about the area and recommended some great places to go. We definitely recommend staying here.

Great base for Waikiki

We were able to book this condo at very late notice (mid-November) for the Christmas holiday due to a cancellation. It was an excellent value for that week! Dawn was very easy to work with and very responsive to emails.

We have stayed at Island Colony in the past, though at higher floors. The unit is very clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. We ate out for dinners so never used the cook top that was available. But we definitely used the kitchenette for our morning coffee, light breakfast, and to store leftover from our dinners for snacks later! I agree with the other reviewer that the mini mart on the 6th floor is excellent.

One minor issue is related to street noise. Many units in the building have glass mini blinds on one pane that is not sound proof connecting the living area to the lanai. It was not an major issue when we stayed at an upper level unit, but this unit was on the 12th floor. There were times in the morning (buses and motocyles) and some evenings where the noise can be loud. But it did get quiet in the late evenings and overnight hours. I was able to sleep through it but my spouse used ear plugs.

I would not hesitate to rent this unit again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review, Wendy. We are glad we were able to work out your stay on short notice.

Thanks for the tip about the glass blinds. We will take the tip into consideration and look into ways to decrease the street noise coming into the apartment.

All the best,
Dawn

Excellent base in Waikiki!

We stayed at Dan and Dawn's studio in the Island Colony hotel for our sixth anniversary in November 2012. The unit is immaculate, modern, and very well-maintained (a heads up, make sure to take soap and toilet paper with you, as these are not provided). There is a lovely balcony that's perfect for morning coffee and enjoying meals and the hotel had everything we needed-- an excellent mini-mart in the building (with a better food selection than the local ABC stores and local food marts), a pool/spa, sauna, washer/dryer, etc. The location of the Island Colony was perfect for us-- just close enough to the strip and beach to be able to walk to everything, but a couple of blocks away so that we felt a little secluded and like we really "lived" in Waikiki. We could not have chosen a better spot.

Dan and Dawn were extremely helpful during the planning phase of our trip, providing us with suggestions for things to do while we were in Waikiki (Dawn's suggestion for our anniversary dinner at House Without a Key was superb and Dan's suggestion for driving Tantalus was one of our favorite sights) and they were both excellent communicators. They went above and beyond the call of duty to make our trip comfortable and fun and we were grateful for their wonderful hosting. It was a pleasure to work with them and we look forward to staying at their studio in the Island Colony on our next trip to Honolulu, and we will recommend their unit to all of our friends until then!

Thank you, Dawn and Dan!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind comments Kristi. We are so glad that you and Ed enjoyed your stay in our apartment, and our recommendations were a success!

We are often glad to have that mini-mart in the building! It has saved us a trip to the store for that one item we always seem to forget.

Thanks again for staying with us, and we look forward to a return visit from you.

All the best,
Dawn & Dan
