About Victor Leonardi

Aloha and E Komo Mai (welcome)

I have been working in reservations and bookings as well as giving guests directions on Oahu for over 5 years. I love living here and moved originally from Canada.

People love to stay at my locations because I'm known to keep the place very clean, give great details, very organized and history of trustworthiness. We truly want you to experience Aloha during your stay, from your first communications with us, to your arrival and departure.

I love to hike the islands, find the 'less traveled' hidden gems, snorkel, spend time on the beach and just enjoy the beautiful sunsets that Hawaii offers. You won't be disappointed either.

I love to help people and for my full time job I work for The Salvation Army as well work in Real Estate Investing

Why Victor Leonardi chose Honolulu

I got involved in Vacation Rentals/Rental Properties because it's a great way to help others enjoy a safe, clean place to vacation or live.

10% of all gross rents are given to a select few of individual missionaries working in countries such as Africa and Argentina in whom we've met along the years

What makes this condo unique

We love this location because it's in the heart of Waikiki, where many vacationers love to stay so they can walk or bus anywhere they choose. It's only 1 block from the beach. The condo has a pool, a great history and many of those who stay here have chosen this as their stay for years and decades. You too will soon fall in love with this little gem and experience Aloha while you are here.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time at this unit it was clean and neat and tidy. Victor left for us a gift bag that had all types of snacks and goodies which was very thoughtful. He was also very accommodating because of our flight arrival and departure times. We look forward to staying at this unit again. We had a wonderful time and look forward to being able to come back. We also found parking across the street at a very reasonable bowl price of $15 per night.

Well located cute apartment in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is a cute little place that can comfortably sleep three-four people.
The apartment was very clean and has all the necessary furniture for a comfortable stay. The location is very convenient and close to the beach in Waikiki, to the bus stop on Kuhio and local cafes. restaurants, grocery and souvenir shops. There are a convenience store (9 AM-12 AM) and a sports bar in the same building. It seems that the building - Hawaiian King - is rather well known to the taxi and shuttle drivers in Honolulu.
The building manager keeps the building clean and organized. The place is quiet if you don't count the noise from the wall-mounted air conditioners.
The unit has its own land line and secure wireless Internet fast enough to do serious work if you have to.
The owner kept in touch with us from the moment we booked the flat through the end of our stay. He gave us all the necessary information to access the unit and also suggested trips and activities on Oahu. We were pleasantly surprised to find a nice welcome cooler bag with presents (bottled water, fruit juice, coffee, popcorn, snacks) and a lovely welcome card.
The unit has a fully equipped kitchen if you want to prepare your own meals. We loved the lanai (balcony) and enjoyed having our coffee there.
Thank you, Victor, for the pleasant experience at your place!

Just like staying with family! Victor is a dream host.

  • 4 of 5
Victor and Kealoha made us feel so welcome and safe! Victor is a kind-hearted soul who genuinely cares about his guests' experience, a pleasure to work with at all times. It was just myself and 4-year old daughter on this trip and our welcome bag clearly had her in mind. Bottled water and a re-usable bag are a must, so nice to get for free, thanks! So many household items were provided as well, what a value!

The other reviews are so accurate and well written, what can I say that others haven't already? Rating the condo on my own priority travel criteria:
1. Cleanliness: This condo is immaculately clean and there were NO BUGS! I stayed at a different Waikiki condo for a week last summer and saw 1 or 2 roaches a day, enough to creep me out, and was told by multiple locals that it's just a part of life in Hawaii. Well not in this property, the pest control service appears to be well utilized.
2. Comfort/Sleep: the queen bed is so comfortable, top quality like you'd expect in a nicer hotel room, a true gem to find in a budget condo like this. The futon is one of the better-quality ones I’ve ever seen, has a thick mattress and is comfortable for kids or a shorter adult.
3. Quiet: My only reason for not giving this condo 5 stars has nothing to do with Victor or the condo itself, just personal preference:

I’ll be the first to admit I’m high maintenance when it comes to sleep and noise, have over-sensitive hearing, and don't travel well in general. Hotels and apartments drive me nuts with the door slamming and constant activity. I live in a quiet, somewhat suburban house. I knew how bustling Waikiki is from my trip last year, but the property I stayed at before was a bit further away (Tusitala St) and that unit was on the 18th floor. I heard noticeably louder street and some bar noise here at this condo, 5th floor, right off of busy Kuhio Ave. It’s a fantastic central location if you’re here to party, are okay with such noise, either from a big city/used to it or not bothered by it (or have sleep aids).

There is one window A/C unit that is extremely loud (all of these on the property are), which was a godsend since I also can’t sleep without a fan or some kind of white noise, and without it, I’d have had no solution to the street noise problem. Switched my daughter to the queen bed and me to the futon with the A/C on its loudest setting, and I slept fine. The A/C also helped muffle outside noise during our down time.

Mahalo, Victor, you're the best!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Tracey for the kind comments :) Glad you and your daughter had a great time and enjoyed much aloha as you stayed in the unit.
Cleanliness is our number 1 :) But guest services is also our number 1, they compete closely lol, so glad you loved the clean unit, the comfy bed, comfy futon and no bugs. The noise in the metro area is a bit harder to get accustomed to especially when you aren't used to that, but glad the the ac helped with being a white noise.
Our main point was that you had a great time, slept well and felt safe and secure, which was one of your top priorities prior to booking...I'm glad we were able to meet that for you and your daughter as you are creating great family memories for years to come.
Hope to host you again soon :)

Delightful clean condo walking distance to Waikiki Beach, shopping & dining.

Delightful clean condo walking distance to Waikiki Beach, shopping & dining.
  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at Victor’s condo. An exuberant local met us upon arrival. Kealoha walked us through the condo explaining how the housekeeping worked, where extra bedding was located and offered us other helpful advice. We were delighted with our gift bag filled with goodies. Internet was readily available, reliable and fast.
Having 4 separate sliding doors to petition off the bedroom from the living room was great. Loads of hangers and closet space was appreciated.

I liked seeing trees outside the balcony. The pool area and landings had a number of plants scattered about, too.

Hawaiian King’s communal laundry room was clean, had a wash tub, folding area and coin operated machines. One could sit right outside at umbrella-shaded tables in the pool area. A number of neighbours took advantage of the communal BBQ grill.

Duke's Market Place was across the road. Each morning we followed that down to a sandy patch of Waikiki Beach where we played in the waves. Much further down from there we learned that coral hindered one’s entry into the sea.

We enjoyed dining at the nearby, surprisingly inexpensive & tasty Marukame Udon. Many restaurants lined the streets only minutes from our doorstep. A small convenience store downstairs made groceries readily available.

The listing description was accurate regarding the location. The listing photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. The property was clean and well-maintained. Victor was helpful in answering our questions. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5
First of all, sorry about the delay for writing this review! Hawaii is my favourite place on Earth, and I dream of going back. I certainly hope to stay in your condo again. It's cozy, but clean, and had everything we needed. My boys were so happy to have received a gift bag of goodies upon our arrival. It was a nice start to our vacation. The location is amazing, as it is such a short walk to the beach, and there are several amenities nearby. The gentlemen that managed and watched the condo building were incredibly nice and helpful! We felt safe in the secured building and appreciative of the grocery store and restaurants nearby. It's a shame we never had the pleasure of meeting you, Victor, but all of our questions were answered and things went smoothly. Everything was wonderful. No problems! Mahalo

Awesome!!!

Me and my husband stayed here when we were in waikiki for our honeymoon. As soon as we arrived we saw that Victor had a care package waiting for us with snacks water and a beach cooler! Along with a wedding card! And roses! So thoughtful! The place is awesome, it's so clean and lots of space. The location is great, 5 minute walk to the beach, right beside many shops and places to eat!! We will definitely be telling everyone about this place, and will stay here on our next visit!!
