5 star views with 2 star accommodations
Our family (3 couples) stayed in the 33rd floor Penthouse condo (Penthouse #3) of the Aloha Lani building from Feb 26th to checkout on March 7th. While the views from the penthouse are amazing many aspects of the accommodations are in dire need of an upgrade. The kitchen and main living room area are nice but many other features of the accommodations were not up to what was advertised/shown on VRBO. We have been staying in vacation rentals with VRBO and VacationRentals.com for many years now and were very disappointed with the accommodations.
All 3 bathrooms need to be upgraded. We stayed in the main floor bedroom (which was behind an accordion privacy screen) that was just off the living room - not very private. As it turned out our bathroom, which was out of the 70’s and definitely needs to be replaced/upgraded, was the best of the bunch. Everyone wanted to use the shower in our bathroom. The upstairs shower (2nd floor) was not working and had a big sign on it – ‘Do Not Use – Out of Order’.
All the Queen Beds were good to sleep on, but had the cheapest pillows money could buy. Ours were flat as a pancake! We bought 2 good pillows at Costco on our 1st day which definitely made a difference for our sleep.
The floors throughout the 2 levels of the Condo are in need of a major scrubbing/cleaning. If you walked barefoot or with your white socks, both were quickly blackened from the floors. All socks were thrown out at the end of our trip as they were so black from the floors.
All the Patio/Outdoor furniture needs to be upgraded – not a single piece of comfortable furniture to be seen anywhere, just cheap plastic furniture. There were 2 BBQ’s on the top floor outdoor patio, one was quite old and not working while only half the burners were working on the other BBQ. There was also a Hot Tub on the patio, but no evidence of any chemicals or ongoing maintenance (we were there for 9 nights). When we have stayed at other properties in Hawaii with a Hot Tub, maintenance is scheduled once or twice a week to ensure the water is safe and sanitary. As a result, we did not use the Hot Tub. The cover for the Hot Tub is in poor shape and needs to be replaced.
There are lots of other issues that just show a lack of regular maintenance. Overall we were not happy with our accommodations but enjoyed the area as it was central.
All of these issues could have been taken care of with one phone call. This Penthouse is decorated in the Hawaiian motif & it's not as contemporary as the other two Penthouse that I have. I also have one that's decorated in an Asian motif & I am sure that would not of suited you. I was not aware of these things, However, one call to me would have taken care of everything to your complete satisfaction within minutes.
I do hope that you look at the Paradise Penthouse on your next Hawaiian vacation. I know that you'll find this much more to your liking.
Cheers Mark & Mercie
Great Views and location!
Mercie and Alex were really nice to deal with. We had some issues with my bank sending the deposit in a timely manner and Mercie helped me deal with it. Alex greeted us and was very nice and helpful with any issues that came up. Also the owner responded promptly and was professional and easy to deal with.
This property is located in the heart of Waikiki. We walked everywhere.
Great views especially being so high up. The upper terrace was a great place to watch the sunset and hang out when it wasn't too hot.
There is a pool that was pretty cold so we didn't use it.
The place is dated. It needs some help. But it's in the middle of Waikiki so you get what you pay for. The bedroom off the living room isn't private so it's not really a bedroom. It has a screen that you pull across (which is typical in Waikiki) but it didn't pull all the way across so the person in that area didn't have privacy.
Upstairs was a terrace area..part of it was outside and part inside. It was spacious and quirky. It could easily fit a few people. No hot water in the shower. It was nice to sleep with the doors open to the elements.
I can see this place being good for a family because it's spacious and you don't have to worry too much about keeping it pristine.
I am not sure which Penthouse you vacationed in however, a call to me or Mercie or Alex & they would have shown you how to access the hot water if needed & where the latch is located to secure the room divider securely. It has always offered our guests a very private & great night sleep since they have there own balcony to walk out on & a private full bath. No one has ever let us know that there was a problem with either of these things & if we were made aware of it, it would have been addressed immediately. We take great pride in our Penthouses, staff & the type of service that we provide to each & everyone of our valued guests. The Penthouses vary in the type of decorating. One Penthouse has an asian motif. One has a Hawaiian motif, another a contemporary. It's just the way that we decided to decorate them in hopes that they would suit individual guests wants & needs. We hope that you would consider us to provide you with another great vacation the next time Hawaii Calls.
Mercie, Alex, Mark & Cecelia.
Amazing views and central location
The Penthouse has amazing views both of the mountains and from the upstairs lani of the ocean and the setting sun. Marcie, who manages the apartment, was wonderful to work. Always attentive and quick to answer any questions. We were 6 adults who had a great stay here.
The owner has more than one Penthouse and we stayed in the Princess Kaiulani. The upstairs facilities (bathroom) in this particular Penthouse are of a considerably lower standard than the rest of the apartment. Another issue was that the owner does not accept credit card payments which means a lot of hassle with bank transfers or cashier checks.
Mahalo for taking the time to write a review for us & our guests. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us & I can assure you that when we get a chance this coming March, when we have a break in the rentals we have renovations scheduled as we do with all of our suites each time we get a chance.. I have had these Penthouses for over 30 years & over that time they have all gone through renovations from top to bottom. I love keeping them in tip top shape for my valued guests so this time around the Princess will under go a renovation & the King at approximately the same time. Brand new kitchens & bathrooms along with everything else to make our rentals the best in Waikiki. We do offer many ways to make a payment for the security deposit along with the final payment for the rent. If there was a way that you perfered please let Mercie know & she'll be glad to accommodate you.
I hope that you share you time with us with your friends & I hope that you will consider us the next time Hawaii calls. I know that your vacations with us will be better than ever.
Mahalo for vacationing with us.
Mercie Alex & Mark.
This was a wonderful vacation from the get go. From the time we booked with Mercie & Mark Until the time we walked into the Penthouse we were treated with respect & professionalism. The Penthouse was clean & had everything that we could hope for. It was spacious & we were able to see the most spectacular fireworks display at eye level. I had never expierenced anything like this before. The sundeck on the top level of our Penthouse was facing the ocean with an obstructed view as far as we could see. The views were panoramic of both the ocean & mountains & the moonlight over the ocean at night went on forever. I must say it was so very romantic for both my husband & I. We were right in the center of Waikiki but we had complete privacy. Having the kitchen was perfect for us & we were all able to eat our special diet foods with no problem. Everyone was able to use their phones & tablets with no issues. The washer dryer was very useful coming home from the beach, snorkeling, or the beautiful hike that Mark recommended. That we will never forget. Frank was able to catch his share of fishes & he was so proud of how well he did. The Ala Wai Golf course was right across the street. I am so glad that Mark told us how to get a good T-time. We were able to eat at the best restaurants & had some of the best meals in Waikiki since Mark told us where to go & who had the freshest foods. The kids loved the roof top pool & the location to everything was just minutes away. The zoo was close by & there were shops of all kinds & restaurants just five minutes form our beautiful Penthouse. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation so much that before we left we reserved the Penthouse for the same time next year. Now that we know what to expect this will make our return trip a joy to look forward too. We will be telling all of our family & friends about our vacation & our stay in your beautiful Penthouse. We all have loads of videos & photos to share with everyone. Mahalo Mercie & Mark for taking such great care of us.
With Love & Aloha Sally, Frank & Family.
A great family vacation
The Penthosue was perfect for my entire family to enjoy. It had unbelievable views, the likes of which we had never seen before in one place. It was well kept, clean & had everything that we needed. Being in the center of Waikiki we found this Penthouse to be very quiet & peaceful. We had everything that we needed from a fully stocked kitchen to a washer dryer & we had no problems with the internet on both levels of the suite. Parking was just like being at home. Very secure & right by the elevator. We were within 5 to 10 minutes walking to great restaurants & the beach. There were shops all along the way & shopping was available from early morning to 11 at night. It was a 5 minute walk to catch a shuttle to any attraction on the island. You couldn't ask for a better location or vacation. We have plenty of pictures & movies to share with everyone at home. We will definitely let everyone know about you Mercie & Mark. You were there for us no matter what.
A great big Aloha to you both.
Mahalo for taking the time to let everyone know what to expect when they stay at our Penthouse. We do provide everything that our guests will need to have a great vacation & if someone needs something special we are a phone call or text away. We always keep the Penthouse in tip top condition & we try to anticipate what our guests will be needing ahead of time so they will have a memorable vacation with us. We have found from our valued guests that they feel this is their home away from home & are comfortable recommending us to their friends for their Hawaiian vacation. Hand in hand with enjoying the Penthosue everyone finds the location to be great for dining, shopping & enjoying all the activities that the Waikiki beach has to offer all within a pleasant walk from the Penthouse. The Penthouse is also a water front, golf course mountain view property. These views are from the 1st level of the Penthosue where, from the lanai, kayak racing & golf players can be viewed any day of the week.
We hope that your memories of us will be long lasting & we hope to see you again in the near future.
Mercie & I wish you all Aloha Nui Loa.
Central to everything Waikiki has to offer!!
Staying at Mark's penthouse was one of the most amazing trips to Honolulu. Walking distance to the beach where you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas for the day. We also took surfing lessons on the same beach. Not only the beach, but convenience stores were within 5 minute walks from the penthouse as well.
The view from the balcony every morning was breathtaking. We even got to watch one of the high school football games play during our stay. A romantic getaway that my wife and I desperately needed. Thank you Mark!
Center of Waikiki. Walking distance to world class shops, 5 star restaurants, world class golf course and the golden beaches of Waikiki.Three bedroom two bath Penthouse. Million dollar ocean & mountain views. Golf: The world class Ala Wai golf course is right across the street from Aloha Love. You can play 18 holes everyday while your wife watches you play 18 holes from the 30 lanai high atop the Ala Wai golf course. She can always go shopping and tell you how great you were and she saw every stroke.
