About Gary (owner)
I have been coming to Hawaii for a lot of years and seen a lot of changes. Experiencing Hawaii is what it is all about! For example, take the "Owner photo". I was hanging around Sandy Beach enjoying the day and the van in the background pulls up and out pops a gentlemen with his preteen age son. Slider opens and they haul out this leather couch, the one in the photo, and put it on the sand under the palm tree. I asked "whats-up", and the kid says my dad and I found this couch along the road so we thought it would be nice here under the tree. I thought so too! I very much enjoyed sitting on that couch watching "Hawaii happen" all the while enjoying my daily newspaper. This is "experiencing" Hawaii. Whenever I get the urge for grilled garlic shrimp, I mean the big ones, I head up to Titas Grill. Small little take-out cafe with tables across the street from Kahuku High school - up by Polynesian Cultural Center. Really "Ono"! Or, other days, I head up to Dillingham Field to watch the "kite-surfers". I mean they launch right next to you on this little beach. If I'm lucky I can pick up road side Rotisserie Chicken for dinner. Here is the best! I arrive at HNL around 3:00 PM, pick up rental car, drive to condo, change clothes, hop back in car drive to Rainbow Drive-in, pick-up pork cutlet plate (2 scoops rice, 1 scope rice, a lot of sliced pork and brown gravy, biggest diet coke, drive to Kings Beach, sit at picinic bench 50 feet from the beach, all the while watching the people and the sun dip into the Pacific. Yes, my friend Hawaii is all about the experience! Come join me! Gary

foam topper for the king bed makes a great relaxing night. Thank you for your business!
Great stay aside from the 30th floor location
Cleanliness was excellent. Spacious enough for a smaller unit.. Attention to interior design. King size bed. Comfy sofa. Clean & complete small kitchen. Plenty of towels. Great view of hillside.
Window air conditioner needed to be drained manually.
Location of 30th floor resulted in total dependency of elevators. At a busy time, they got extremely crowded and stopped at almost every floor.
Once the power was shut down for the entire building with insufficient notification. I had an emergency errand to the pharmacy to make but was not able to leave the room & no one was available to speak to by phone after calling three different numbers. Eventually a maintenance assistant returned my call later & explained that the elevators were being worked on. But, the posted signage by the lobby elevators only stated that the laundry room would be affected.
Overall, though, we had a very good experience & did enjoy our stay.
Very close to all the upscale attractions Waikiki has to offer. The A/C in the unit is a must have for those not used to the climate, just have to empty the water catch twice a day which isn't a big deal. Comfy bed. The reserved parking spot is also one of the best perks of this rental. Great stay all around.
Aloha S.L. Very pleased you were able to enjoy the free parking and the upscale attractions in the local area. Hope to see you again!
Rocky Start but Smooth Sailing
When my family and I got to the property the cleaners had not cleaned from the previous guests according to Gary. He was quick to respond and get us to a Hotel next door since it was too late to get a cleaner to the property. The very next day we arrived and everything was smooth sailing from there!
Occasionally the unexpected is upon you, and we resolved the problem quickly to the customers satisfaction! See you again!
A winner in Waikiki
Stayed here with my kids. The location was absolutely perfect for what I wanted and having parking for our rental was the cherry on top! We used the beach gear and that just made the trip even easier!! I only wish we could have stayed longer!
