About Steve Marcotte

We have been in the Hawaii vacation rental business since 1993. After selling our former Big Island vacation rental company, A Piece of Paradise, we recently relocated to Waikiki. We are licensed real estate agents and like to help folks buy their own Hawaiian piece of paradise.

Steve Marcotte purchased this condo in 2013

Why Steve Marcotte chose Waikiki

The number one reason we bought this property is for the AMAZING VIEWS! Everyone that walks in the door is surprised by the panoramic 270 degree breathtaking view of all of Waikiki.

In addition, it is a spacious penthouse with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with large open living/dining/kitchen area.

What makes this condo unique

Aside from the remarkable views this unit has a special location. In addition to all the services and features available without leaving the building, it is convenient to the Waikiki Convention Center, Hilton Waikoloa Village, Ala Moana Shopping Center and Waikiki Beach Walk.

Great location, great views!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week - suited us down to the ground, great location, fantastic views. The owner was lovely to deal with via e-mail, and we had no need to call him while we were there.

The apartment, whilst quite old, was very clean and had been painted sometime recently. The beds were comfortable, and everything we needed was there for us, even items like boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels etc. They had thought of everything!!!

A couple of comments on the property in general:

- No dishwasher

- Bathroom in the main bedroom is NOT suitable for older persons, or anyone with ANY type of mobility issues. It was extremely small, with a very very deep (but small in length) bath with a shower over the bath. Fortunately it did have grab rails installed, and I used them, along with the towel rail & shelf over the toilet to get in and out of the bath.

- Linen is getting quite aged now. We noted that the towels were quite worn from washing, the same as the linen for the king sized bedroom.

- The lounge is now lumpy to sit on and quite uncomfortable. Fine if you want to lay down though!

We would certainly recommend it, and would visit again. It was lovely - thank you!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for taking the time to write a review of our penthouse. Reviews are so helpful to both prospective guests AND to us. When we bought this penthouse we really wanted to install a dishwasher. However we were advised against it because dishwashers are a primary source of leaks; and leaks in a hi-rise condo can cause damage on multiple floors below. On the bright side, the views are spectacular from the kitchen sink! When you said the 'bathroom was not suitable' I believe you meant ‘bath tub’. That is a soaking tub which are prized by the Japanese (and are quiet expensive to install) but Westerners may not be familiar with them. From your description of getting in and out of the tub, I think I better consider installing an additional grab rail! Thanks for the heads up about the towels and linens. We now bought all new ones and will replace them a little more often in the future. This is the first comment we have had about the lounge. I went and sat on it and it felt good to me. I did not have time to lay down on it, but you already confirmed that it was okay for that! Thanks again for taking the time to write your review. Much appreciated! We hope the next time you come we will get a 5-star review!!!

Unbelievable views of Wakaki Beach and Diamond Head. Clean, very caring owner to make sure your comfortable. Was always available if needed. 5 Blocks from the beach. I'd recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. Yes, the views are the reason we bought this condo. We still can't believe it is ours sometimes! We love sharing it with our guests. Mahalo! Steve

Room with a View

  • 4 of 5

Possibly the best view in Honolulu. A well presented, bright and clean apartment equipped with everything you need( yes except dishwasher but the view from the sink makes washing up enjoyable). Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our time in this apartment ( ignore the outside of the building). Easy walk to the Hilton Lagoon, with resident pussycat on the beach. Then a stroll down Waikiki beach, lunch at a beach side restaurant, photo next to Duke, stroll back towards apartment and shopping on the way. Back at the apartment watch the sunset and the lights of Honolulu gradually turn on and twinkle all evening. Highly recommended, thanks Steve.

Amazing views

  • 4 of 5

This condo fit our needs perfectly. Walking distance to lots of good restaurants, shopping, beach, and Convention Center. Loved having the washer/dryer because I didn't take home a suitcase of dirty clothes. The owner was very accommodating to our needs. I would definitely stay here again if I ever return to Oahu.

what a view, whales in the bay on our first morning!

  • 5 of 5

A small issue on arrival where we needed to register with security to activate our key cards. This wasn't noted on our instructions, a bit frustrating after a late night arrival. Other than that a great apartment with everything you could need. Full kitchen with plenty of equipment (except a dishwasher which was a challenge for our boys). Plenty of room with three large son's in tow. Helpful security and parking staff and a friendly cleaning lady appeared as we were sadly departing.

And not to forget the amazing views, always something to see on the water, canal and the streets and the bonus Friday night fireworks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Much appreciated! Sorry about the glitch with the key card. We have updated our procedures to test the key before every guest arrives and also are updating our instructions to guests about what to do if there is an issue. We love the views there, too. That's why we made it our residence for a year even though we bought it as a rental. It is awesome that you saw whales!!!! Aloha, Steve

Waikiki Beach - 10 minute walk
Car: not necessary

The world famous Waikiki Beach is only a 10 minute walk. Many restaurants (Thai, Japanese, Hard Rock Cafe, Irish, Wolfgang's Steak House, Italian and MANY MANY more) are within walking distance.

People attending conventions in Honolulu find the Penthouse a reasonable alternative to staying at a hotel, especially if family members are traveling too.

It is within easy walking distance of popular convention facilities such as the Hawaii Convention Center, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Ala Moana Hotel and the Hawaii Prince Hotel. It is also within a longer walking distance or short drive or taxi ride to meeting and conventions at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, Waikiki Beach Marriott, Sheraton Waikiki, Halekulani, Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach and the Royal Hawaiian.
