About Aaron and Deanna Nielsen

After Living on the Mainland of USA for many years and frequent visits to the Hawaiian Islands we fell in love with Hawaii and are now blessed to call this home. Deanna has the pleasure of being employed by one of the Luxury Retailers in the Ala Moana shopping center located next to the hotel. Aaron is employed as a Pilot with a local Airline. These employment positions have afforded us the opportunity and time to manage this property on a private basis.

Aaron and Deanna Nielsen purchased this hotel in 2013

My first time visiting Hawaii and using VRBO and Aaron and Deana made the process so smooth. The room was very clean and the checking in process was easy. The hotel is right next to the Ala Moana Mall, made shoping very easy and its prime location in Waikiki made it easier to go sight see. A very good choice for couples or small group of friends to get away on a budget.

A beautifully appointed condo and the best value in Waikiki!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first rental using the VRBO site. I was skeptical at first when browsing the many rental units available for my week long stay in Waikiki with my husband. I'm glad I narrowed it down to Aaron & Deanna's unit! From the start, the Owners were very responsive and helpful providing me with great tips for our stay. When we arrived the room was spotless and very well appointed - Keurig Coffee machine with a variety of coffee pods, creamer sugars, local Hawaiian chocolates, a generous amount of water, soap, and event beach chairs and umbrella! Our stay was amazing and the bed was very comfortable, this unit provided us with relaxation and we were able to save a couple of bucks by skipping the Starbucks downstairs every morning! The Owners checked in with us via text during our stay and even cleaned our room and changed our linens mid-week which was incredible. The location was perfect, walking distance to Waikiki and next to the Ala Moana Shopping Mall. Also, we rented a car to explore the island during our vacation and were able to park for FREE at the Ala Wai Canal behind the Convention Center which was walking distance to the hotel. I can't express my gratitude enough! I'll be sure to stay here again when we're back in Waikiki and recommend this place to my friends and family!!!

Miniature Beach House

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully appointed little jewel box of an apartment -- decorated in a "beach house" sand and water palette, and set up to provide everything you need to wind down and relax, or ready yourself for a day of activity. Ideally situated to experience the best shopping in Waikiki: literally next door-- at amazing Ala Moana, and a short walk away from world-class high fashion on Kakakaua Avenue. If a slowed down drift on a easy wave is for you, you are 5 minutes from one of the best-kept secrets in the district: Magic Island ... Beautifully sheltered pristine beaches with amazing views of the wild activities off shore (yours to enjoy in no time as well). We started planning our next stay as we sadly packed up to leave yesterday.... Just a perfect little sanctuary and staging area. You'll love it.

Very nice small room, excellent value

  • 5 of 5

This is basically a nice hotel room, with microwave and refrigerator. Location is central to Ala Moana, and a short walk to Waikiki.

Central A/C worked well, and the refrigerator was stocked eith some bottled water.

Looking forward to staying here again!

Adequate for a two night stay

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this room for 2 nights before flying to Maui. It was a very small room, even smaller than a regular hotel room. The bed was comfortable. I would not call this an ocean view room as it overlooked a roof and a parking deck and in the distance you could see a little bit of the ocean. The bathroom and shower were a good size but the shower water was barely warm even though there seemed to be hot water at the sink. The room was nicely furnished and included a Keurig coffee maker and several kinds of coffee. The hotel was in a good location. We didn't realize until we were leaving that there was a direct walkway from the hotel to the shopping mall next door which had a lot of good restaurants in it. We had walked there a few times but walked along the street around the block. All in all it was an ok place to stay since we wanted to see the Pearl Harbor Memorial before continuing our trip to Maui.

Owner's Response: Aloha Becky, We are so sorry about the Hot water issue, it wasn't brought to our attention until after you checked out. We have a list of activities and information on the best way to access the mall next door, you must have missed it in the guest welcome book. We feel we have priced the room well below the current market rate and past guests have been more than satisfied with the accommodations:) Thanks For staying! Mahalo Aaron & Deanna

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Room was nice, very clean, and most importantly very quiet ... rarely heard any other noise except ourselves! Also since it is a privately owned room hotel housekeeping left us alone which was also great. Aaron and Deanna were awesome - cleaned and put out fresh linen halfway through our stay ... stocking the fridge with bottled water for us was a lifesaver! Also having beach chairs and a sun-shade made a HUGE difference in our beach outings!

Only reason we would rate the room at 4 stars (probably more like 4 1/2 stars) was the internet access ... it was off and on most of the time. Of course we didn't come to Hawaii to surf the internet, but when we tried to update social media with things about our vacation it was frustrating waiting for it - sometimes just stopped completely. After a couple of days we just used our phones to get on.

Overall this rental was outstanding ... it's proximity to the mall and Waikiki is perfect!

Owner's Response: Aloha Chris, Thanks so much for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you stay with us again. We are so sorry for the Internet service, this is the first time we have had complaints. If we had known of any issues we could have had the hotel reboot the system or insure it was working correctly, it is owned and maintained by the hotel. We will definitely make sure it is working correctly for our next guests. Thanks again! Mahalo Aaron & Deanna Nielsen
