Nice location and view

  • 4 of 5

The location was great. 2 blocks to the beach and lots of restaurants near by. This end of Wakiki is less crowded than the other end, which we preferred. This was our first trip to Oahu so we did not know the area before booking.

Jeff and Kim were very easy to work with and got back to us quickly if we had any questions.

The view was not as expected. The buildings were a lot bigger and closer in person than they appear in the photos. Although you can see the beach, I expected to see more of it. Tower 1 of the Banyon is right in front of you with one other building just to the right of it. In October you cannot see the sunset from the balcony as it is blocked by one of the buildings. We had to walk down to the beach to see the sunset.

Perfect for 2 adults and 1 or 2 small children to share the sofa bed. My son ended up sleeping on the foam pad that was in the closet most nights, he's only 3-1/2 so it was fine for him. The king bed was very comfortable and we slept really well. Amenities in the kitchen were all we needed. The wifi is not hi-speed and it cuts out often and kicks you off. the AC unit is very loud. There is only one speed on the fan so you couldn't turn it down. I had to turn it off every once-in-a-while because I was getting a headache from the loud sound. They did have a small fan to help push cooler air in to the master bedroom at night. When you close the doors the master does not get as much air since the AC unit is in the living room.

The floors of the condo were not clean when we arrived. I had to sweep when we got there. We are used to no shoes in the house and with tile floors it is often necessary to sweep every day, especially with sand. The bathroom rug looked like it needed washing. I ended up putting a towel over it while we were there. There were lots of bathroom towels and 4 beach towels. We went down after day 2 to swap them out for clean ones and they told us there was a $15 fee for new towels. They waved the fee since we did not know about it, but said they would charge us if we came back.

Overall the condo worked well for us. It was not "perfect", but the value was appropriate and it worked well for our family.

Good Location/Great View

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this unit in August when we were taking our Daughter back to school at University of Hawaii Manoa. There were 4 of us. My husband and I and our adult children age 21 and 23.

The unit has 1 king bed, one fold out sofa bed and a small sleeping pad for the floor. This would be great for 2 adults and maybe 2 small children or one other person but it was really not adequate for us. I am not sure if you can rent a rollaway but I do not feel the the sleeping pad can be considered for anyone other than a child under the age of 5. There is really no place for the other people to put their clothes either so our son and daughter lived out of their suitcases.

The kitchen had everything you need. There is no dishwasher, but that is not a big deal. The airconditioning unit worked great.

The view from the lanai was great. The unit is a short walk from the beach and I enjoy being at that end of Waikiki. It was an easy drive to UH campus.

Having free is parking is very convenient. The pool area is great with the hot tubs and nice pool. Plenty of deck chairs.

My husband and son borrowed boogie boards from Koko resorts and they were great. The 2 beach chairs were also very convenient.

My friends and I had a wonderful time. The apartment was perfect with the amazing view. Perfect position to the beach and shops and especially the buses. I will definitely be staying here again when I get the chance to come to Hawaii next time.

NIce condo in a good location

  • 4 of 5

Overall we liked this condo. The owners generally responded in a timely manner during the booking and payment process. We were only here a couple of nights, but because parking was included with the rent we paid, even after cleaning fees this was a less expensive option than a nearby hotel.

The condo is in a very good location only a couple of blocks from Waikiki and there were plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The pictures do a good job of showing the views from the condo and we enjoyed watching the surfers.

Although we didn't cook a lot in our short stay, the kitchen was well equipped for two people. This was one of the few units in this complex that we could find that had a king bed and the bed was very comfortable. The unit was very clean.

Although there was a sleeper sofa in the living room, and there was a door that separated the bed from the living room, this unit really wouldn't work for more than a couple since the A/C unit is only a window unit in the living room that wouldn't cool the bedroom if the door was closed. And that unit was a bit noisy.

The TV reception was really spotty. At times it would come in fine and other times some stations had nothing but snow. And even though the TV in the bedroom was a different brand than the one in the living room, the remotes sometimes operated both TV's at the same time. So when we turned one off the other would come on and then vice versa.

There were a couple of things about the complex itself that were very disappointing. If you wanted to use the grills in the area next to the pool, there was a $2 charge and you had to bring quarters. Really? And we were really looking forward to the Jacuzzi after a long day of walking but it was closed for repairs.

I don't really have anything else to compare it to since it's been 35 years since the last time we stayed in Honolulu, but overall this seems like a decent condo for the price.
