Why Esther chose Oahu

When we first moved to Hawaii in early 2000, we wanted to be close to everything Hawaii has to offer. The location was perfect, it made our transition magical. Living in Waikiki is nothing like anywhere we've ever experienced. You have an array of outdoor activities and a good size city life. Anytime we crave a more peaceful/isolated sorrounding we drive half an hour to 45 minutes.

The condo itself has the best open layout. It appears more spacious than it is. There is a circular flow from the entry way to the living room out to the lanai, the main bedroom, kitchen, then back to the entrance. It reminds me of my childhood when my sisters and I used to chase each other around the house.

Waikiki Lanai is a special place for us. We celebrated every occasion with fondest memories of laughter, eating, dancing, singing, and great conversations.

The most relaxing spot in the condo is the lanai. I can sit there for hours reading, watching the outrigger canoes glide on Ala Wai canal, or smile and be grateful at the sightings of rainbows.

This is an older building that the current homeowner association is trying to update and renovate to the best that it can be. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. The amenities are rarely crowded because most of the residents are locals.

Our decision to turn Waikiki Lanai into an affordable vacation rental is because of how much we enjoyed living in this condo. We aim to provide you with the same simple pleasure in a cozy homey environment. It's not a luxury accommodation but it has everything you need and more.....

amazing get away

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with this condo. I've never felt so at home on a vacation before. Also the placement of the condo near restaurants, shopping, and the beach was very nice. Esther was amazing to work with, she was very prompt in answering any questions we had. We went with another group and they chose to stay at a hotel and our price was cheaper and we had so much more available to us. I can't describe how perfect this condo was for our experience in Hawaii. Thank you Esther so much. I recommend everyone to use this for there travels.

Awesome Location, Great Price, Extremely Happy!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had never used a website like HomeAway to book my accommodations, so I was extremely nervous when I booked my 7 night stay.

I had absolutely nothing to worry about though, as soon as I had placed my reservation, Esther organized everything from payment, things to do and see to all the information we needed to know!!

Upon arriving at the condo we were very impressed. It was up on a high level so the views of Honolulu by day and night where breath taking. The condo was clean and homely and everything was as described. We had a group of 4 adults, who easily and comfortably were able to live and enjoy the condo, especially because there were 2 bedrooms it gave each couple the peace and privacy that we all needed after a long day out at the beach.

We couldn't ask for a better location. It was a short walk to the beach, grocery shopping and the shopping strip. Food options were all around.

All in all, we LOVED our stay at Esther's condo and will be recommending it to everyone we talk to. When we come back to Honolulu in the future we will defiantly be coming back to stay.

Thanks for having us Esther, Mahalo!!!!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was accurately described. The instructions sent by Roger were very accurate and helpful and we had no issues. The condo is in a great location only a couple blocks walking distance from the beach and main strip. No issues with any bugs as is common for this climate, we kept the counter cleaned and no food out.

The condo fit our needs perfectly with us having 2 kids they shared the room with 2 beds. I would recommend other renters to check the drain buckets for the AC as they can get full quickly if you don't pay attention. We had a very nice breeze so didn't use it much.

Only other suggestion I would have to to get a few chairs and small table for the patio (lanais). WE spend a good amount of time out there and had to drag out the dining room chairs. Not a big issue but would've been nice to have patio furniture.

All in all this was a fabulous location with great communication from Roger. Almost don't want to send such a good review as I want to keep it a secret. Seriously, great price, location and overall experience.

Great place for family trip!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks here. Building was clean, well-kept and secure. It was nice to be able to park our rental car in the parking garage for one night. Condo was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the beautiful views from the lanai. Beach was short walk from condo. Owners were very helpful and easy to work with during rental process. If we return to Waikiki again, we would love to stay there again.
