I cannot speak highly enough of this accommodation! The ease, comfort, cleanliness, style and personal touches included in this property contributed greatly to us having such a fantastic time away. There was no need to hire a car as the location was within easy walking distance from major centres and public transport. Janna was so helpful in answering our questions and gave us fantastic ideas and tips about places to visit and things to do throughout our stay. I certainly hope that we will be back in the future!!

Suitable Accomodations

  • 3 of 5

The location was great! Nice short walk to the beach, and while we were there, Hawaii Five 0 was being filmed, right between our condo and the Modern Hotel! Short walk to terrific amenities: ABC store across the street, complete with groceries, souvenirs and beverages, Foodland (1/2 km away), shopping malls, war museum, Ala Moana Park and much more.

The condo was well equipped with cooking accessories, beach chairs, snorkelling equipment, beach towels, etc. Laundry facilities on the 8th floor were great; however, it takes $2.25 per load in quarters, the same price as the dryers. The owner provided a great list of sight-seeing suggestions, along with restaurant options!

There is a very inexpensive little bar in the basement of the Ilikai Marina where there is affordable food and drinks.

The residents of the building were very nice and helpful.

The downside was the lack of a standard size balcony and no ocean view. The lanai was very small, inhabited by three potted, decorative plants with nowhere to put a couple chairs. The patio door was also very heavy to open. The Murphy bed was not very comfortable. It's probably time to invest in a new mattress. The noise at night, being on the street side, was very loud at times.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Charlene, so happy you enjoyed your selection of one of our luxury condos from "You Found Paradise". Please note the mattress on the bed is 6 months new that came at a cost of just under two thousand dollars. I only buy the best! As picture in the advertisement I've made it very clear, this condo has a city and skyline view! The location is in an ocean front building, being on the city side which is reflected in the rate. I do have 3 ocean view luxury condo that are available at double the cost of this studio, perhaps next visit. The size of the lanai is small and since there are floor to ceiling glass sliders to enjoy the view in air conditioning, I've provide comfy sofa and chairs. Noise, I've stayed in this condo many times in high season and I've not had an issue with noise, nor do prior guest reviews reflect any excessive sound. We are looking forward to your return one day soon. We appreciate you!

Concerns and Disappointments

  • 2 of 5

Our initial contact and communication with Janna was very good, she provided us with her hit list of options for making our stay as rewarding as possible while in Honolulu and provided us with options for getting to and from the air port, things to do and see. Welcoming chocolates in wine glasses by the couch, nice touch, clean linens and towels, very clean operable fridge and ample supply of toiletries.Their motto is "You have found paradise", well that changed after we were able to settle in after a couple of hours. I am not sure when the owners last visited this unit or when it was last renovated but, in my opinion it is in need of a complete renovation again. I realize we had the opportunity to contact the owner with any concerns we had with this unit but, again in my opinion too many to deal with during our stay. Pest control and two false fire alarms left us a little uncertain about safety. Advertising on vrbo states ocean front condo with city view when it is the building that is ocean front, not the condo, I think a little misleading. The oven was missing a dial and the inside of the door seal was hanging loose, the stove had a dial that didn't work, the flooring was bulging in places either from being wet or installed incorrectly, the microwave vent cover fell out a couple of times and was very dirty on the inside. After the second time I put it in the broom closet and replaced it upon leaving. Closet door hanging very loose and about to fall off. Needless to say we would not recommend this unit to anyone.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for mentioning the 5 star touches that greeted you upon your arrival, chocolates, wine glasses, toiletries, which I believe shows our guests we care and want to make their stay a fabulous experience. So unfortunate this guest did not reach out to me over any of these concerns which they mentioned. However I did receive communication about where is the ocean view along with stating I had mislead them and falsely advertised the condo, which I believe caused them to write such a negative review! This condo is located in an ocean front building facing the mountain and city skyline. I pointed out to this guest the advertisement clearly states and shows with the pictures city skyline views (which are gorgeous). I believe this guest did not fully read or realize the view hence there disappointment. The items mentioned I will take as constructive information but fully expressed by their disappointment in the unexpected view. Please read prior and post reviews to get an accurate description of this condo. I have 7 luxury condos and half of them face the ocean, which come with a higher price point. I'm very proud of our condos and our ability to offering luxury condos at affordable prices. Future guests of this sold out condo, we will welcome you in the with the highest standards!

Brilliant apartment

  • 5 of 5

There is something about this apartment that makes you feel instantly is such a funky apartment! Whilst it is small, we still felt like it was spacious and had everything you need. Heaps of storage space for clothes, luggage etc, the pull down bed was comfy and the kitchen whilst small is totally functional and you won't want for anything more! The apartment is 5-10min easy walk to Ala Moana Centre, you can walk to the beach in less than 5 mins and there are heaps of restaurants, cafes etc nearby.

Amazing! Please read!

  • 5 of 5

The place is very cute and very nice. You have everything, room for 3 people, full bottles of lotion, shampoo, soap, body wash, dish washer..etc. The bottles are ginormous! Much bigger than what we have in our own house! The beach is so close! While your walking to the beach you cross this bridge with amazing views! You also pass two swimming pools while your walking. The beach only takes about 2 minutes to walk over there and see some school's of fish swimming. While your in Hawaii, don't forget to go snorkeling! I saw about 100 types of fish! Butterfly fish, zebra fish, neon fish, catfish, you name it! I felt like I was in Finding Nemo when I was underwater! There were at least 6 Dori fish swimming besides me! The fish are not afraid to swim with you! DO NOT forget your sunscreen, make sure you apply layers as the sun can sunburn you very bad. The sun isn't so hot at all! In fact, it was a huge surprise when I had sunburns all over me! Anyways, the room we stayed in was so comfortable I forgot that we were in Hawaii! There are so many buses and stores that are so convient! The only thing that we were surprised of is that the bed is in the living room, and you had to get the bed down from the wall. But the bed was so comfortable! One minute of touching the pillow and your fast asleep! Everything is just so fancy and comfortable that I wish I lived there! It's just that whatever you buy in Hawaii is a little expensive than what we are normally used to. The bathrooms are huge! There is also a little closet that is so organized! Face towels, hand towels, big towels, swimming towels, there is just so much! The wifi is so fast! If your a fashionista then there will be a lot of mirrors waiting for you! The place is a very safe place, if you cross the street you go with 15 people around you. I will visit Hawaii again and I will stay there again! I wish I lived there! The owner is so helpful and friendly! If you ask a question, she will reply immidiently! I just LOVE Hawaii!
