Beautiful personal touches!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great! Walked in to Hawaiian music in the living room and ocean sounds in the bedroom. Very open and relaxing. View is of city and partial mountains. Condo had everything we needed including snorkels, boogie boards and beach chairs. Bed was awesome!! Check out the Harbor Pub downstairs for breakfast and great local people!

ERNEST HEMINGWAY would have loved this retreat !!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the unit I was pleasantly surprised by the sounds of Hawaiian music and such a well cleaned, and appointed unit. The AC was on so the unit was cool.. Everything was as mentioned to me before booking. The bedroom was spacious and enough closet space. But the bed was so wonderful with enough pillows and linens to let me be comfy and cozy. Janna had thought of everything for a women, even a lighted mirror for putting your makeup on. Enough towels and extras which I always appreciate. There is a new W/D in the unit if your stay is longer. The unit has two massive set of windows that open up to lanai's so that you can enjoy your coffee . The kitchen is large and all new appliances, with enough dishes and glassware to enjoy your favorite drink or glass of wine. Two TV's with more than enough stations if that is your choice. But what I love is the location of the unit. I found that it was quiet and soooo relaxing. You are walking distance to restaurants, bars, coffee shops or famous Waikiki. Again, it was a great couple days and have already booked another weekend with Janna

An adequate property in a central location

  • 3 of 5

The property is fine, though aging. The AC broke down on our last day. The property maintenance people were quick to respond but repair was not forthcoming. We left the lanai doors open overnight to help cool the apartment, but traffic noise kept us awake. The owner did offer her apology when I called to report the AC problem. The unit is located in a central area. While there are 2 lanais, neither are big enough to sit and enjoy a morning coffee - this was a disappointment as the write up led us to think there were 2 out door spaces. All in all, I would rate the property as adequate.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for choosing our slice of Paradise. thank you for acknowledging our quick response to the A/C issue which I was told was resolved. The A/C is scheduled to be replaced in July 2016. Your comment about aging, this condo was completely remodeled 3 years ago, kitchen has stainless steel appliances new hard wood cabinets, granite counter-tops in both kitchen and bathroom, along with new flooring ,fixtures and window coverings. Please reference prior and post reviews to get an accurate overview of the high standards I provide in this condo and all my other luxury condos in the Ilika's.

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything as advertised, and had lots of extras we didn't expect. My wife loved the vanity in the bedroom, we both enjoyed the beach chairs, (didn't use the boogie boards but it was nice they were available). Brand new washer and dryer were installed while were were on a tour, they work great! No need for a car. Location across from the beach is perfect. Beautiful beach with great restaurant choices where you can eat and enjoy the ocean. Great lagoon for kids or people who want to swim in calm water. Janna is awesome to work with!!!

Cozy & Spacious Condo- Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We are just wrapping up our stay in unit 1099 and had a really nice time! Janna is very responsive and accommodating. Bed is really comfy, internet works great, kitchen is beautiful. Really felt like home which we much prefer over the big hotels that cost twice as much. Washer dryer right in the unit, bathtub (most of the condos we looked at only had a shower). Janna provides coffee, beach chairs towels toys, shampoo conditioner and soap... it was great so we could pack light. Location is great to walk to the beach and to the strip of shopping and hotels/restaurants on the beach- we did find it was helpful to have a car to get to other areas on the island that we really wanted to see. Tip for anyone else who decides to rent a car- do it at the airport! The car rental places across the way from the condo had outrageous pricing and it was cheaper for us to take an uber back to the airport and rent something there. I used expedia at the last minute to book a cheap car rental and they upgraded us to a luxury car (porsche panamera) for A minimal

charge. That was probably lucky and good timing, but i find i get the best deals when i wait until the last minute. Would definitely rent this condo again and recommend it to anyone looking for a convenient, comfortable and beautiful place to stay. Thank you Janna.
