Clean and Homey

  • 5 of 5

Very happy we found this place. We stayed here with our two year old. The service was great, with Janna even supplying us with a playpen. The location was great for us because we were close to the Hilton Lagoon which is great for kids. The pool at the Modern next door has great food and drinks, and the staff was very nice. We rented a car and the parkade was very convenient with cheap parking thanks to the pass Janna supplied. The condo had everything we needed and more. The attention to small details, like even band aids in the vanity, were really appreciated. The only complaint was that the futon was fairly uncomfortable to sit on. Otherwise, we loved the place and it began to feel like home before we left!

Purple paradise

  • 4 of 5

Our 5night stay was most enjoyable. The apartment was very clean and the bed comfortable,if a little difficult to make. The situation was excellent, far enough away from the very crowded centre but everything you needed at a walkable distance or a short $7.50 taxi ride, which were always available at the Modern across the street. Easy access to the Ilikai pool and bar and the Hilton lagoon beach also nice bar meals and music at the poolside at the Modern. Sarentos was very Nice,if a little expensive,but has a great bar for cocktails. It was good to have the full kitchen for those times you didn't want tO eat out. Also use of the laundry was good as well.Would definitely consider it again if holidaying in Honolulu again.

Purple Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 6 night stay at the Purple Paradise. It was perfect for us. Had everything we needed, close walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shops etc. The condo was very clean and well decorated. It was pretty quite for its location. Parking in the ramp next to the condo building was a snap. Janna always responded quickly to questions. The comfort of the bed was the only negative, but I know it is hard to please everyone when it comes to firmness of a bed. I would highly recommend staying at Purple Paradise and hope we can stay there again.

Hawaii Birthday Trip

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly what we needed. Great location. Perfect for a couple. We always love having a kitchen to make meals when we want to. The condo itself could use some touch up paint in places. The bathroom rug was really gross and needs to be washed or replaced. Other than that everything was fine. The bed was very comfy. We were aware it did not have a view of the marina, and it really didn't matter anyway. The view of the city is spectacular enough, especially at night. We spent a lot of time at the beach, which is about a 10 minute walk to the area by the lagoon at the Hilton. Less crowded there, plus there is a food truck (Gilligan's) for snacks and drinks. Some beach stuff is available in the unit if needed. We rented a car for 2 days and used the parking garage attached to the building. $20 for 24 hour period. Unless you plan to explore the island a car is not needed. Taxi's are always at The Modern next door and lots of things are totally walkable. We used the concierge at the Ilikai Hotel to book tours and activities. Had dinner at sunset at the Top of Waikiki. Gorgeous views because it revolves 360 degrees. Excellent service and food. Make a reservation a couple of days in advance. We found the prices to be a bit better than Sarento's. Still visited Sarento's anyway for cocktails and an appetizer and enjoyed the views there. If food trucks are your thing you must stop by The Shrimp Shack and say Hi to Mama Roxy. She's quite a character. Great eats! Google the location. We would definitely stay in this condo again on another visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marie for your lovely review, it was a pleasure to have you as our guest. Had no idea the rug in the bathroom was a disappointment and as you know I'm a perfectionist so that rug will be replaced, so sorry about that. We are looking forward to your return visit and Mahalo for the 5 stars. Aloha Janna

Great place, great location, great price

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time doing a vacation rental, and Janna made it a fabulous experience. Her instructions were clear and the descriptions and pictures on this site are spot on; the renovations to the place were nicely done. As promised, there was even some beach amenities such as beach towels, umbrella, 2 small beach chairs, and even snorkelling equipment.

We also took advantage of the fridge, microwave, plates and silverware, hair dryer, cable TV, and wi-fi internet. All great perks to have. Even the little things, like a brand new dish sponge and soap and conditioner/shampoo, were provided.

The lanai was really small, and there's no view of the ocean unless you go to the very right of the lanai and veer over the edge, but that's ok. If you want a view of the ocean, step out into the stairwell/fire escape.

We were able to walk in less than 10 minutes to the nearby lagoon and to the Hilton Hawaiian Village hotel, where we were able to sneak into the pools. The Hilton also has fireworks on Friday night at around 7:30-8:00. There are a few quick eats across the street and a couple nicer restaurants in this hotel and the Modern next door.

We chose to rent a car, and Janna provided a parking pass for only $10/day (so cheap compared to everything in Waikiki). But if you don't have a car, the Ilikai is right along the routes of buses and trolleys to get you to the rest of Waikiki.

We only wish we could have spent more days there!

Waikiki without breaking the bank

  • 5 of 5

The Purple Paradise was everything it was advertised as. Being at the end of Waikiki was perfect for us. Close to the action, but away from the masses of people that scour the beach.
