perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This is a bit late. We stayed the first week of April. The unit is nicely maintained and has everything you need. We were comfortable and slept 7 (5 kids from 5 to 15). It is very centrally located within walking distance to the mall and the beach. We had a great time.

An Honest Review

  • 3 of 5

The Good.

We have stayed many times in this building before, First time in this unit.

The location is central, and right where you want to be in Waikiki. The views of Diamond Head and the ocean spectacular. The suite is very spacious. Thanks Gavin for allowing us a late check-out, as our flight left in the evening.

The Bad

We haven’t been back to Waikiki for about 2 years, and now with the economy picking up, half of Waikiki is under construction. And you’re facing it! If you are a light sleeper, I would not recommend this location. With the new International Marketplace being built, as well as several hotels/buildings across the street and down the block being renovated, be prepared to be waken up early each morning to the sounds of jack-hammers and heavy equipment noise. This is on top of the usual police and ambulance sirens. It wasn’t even enjoyable to sit outside and have a coffee or breakfast on the lanai because of all the racket!! Give it at least a couple of years before all this construction is finished. Maybe a unit on the opposite side of the building would be quieter.

As far as the unit itself, and I question the validity of some of the reviews, is that the unit is in much need of some maintenance and upgrading. It’s obvious that the owners don’t care much about the renters and are not putting any effort into this place. The biggest complaint are the beds. If you have a bad back, or need at least a semi-comfortable mattress to sleep on, you will be largely disappointed. The mattresses on the Queen bed and the singles in the other bedroom are about as soft as a piece of plywood!! My wife and I slept on the sofa-bed because the crappy rock-hard mattresses!! The owners really need to spend a few hundred dollars and get some new mattresses, a couple of decent frying pans and a set of knives. Fix all the paint peeling off the walls and ceiling in the bathrooms. Place really needs a facelift.

Would we stay here again? Maybe if they fixed these things and not until all the construction is finished.

Not the worst place in the world, but I thought I’d give this an honest review, as we were quite disappointed and made our decision to stay here based on all the previous reviews.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, although I would consider this remark to border on being slanderous: "It’s obvious that the owners don’t care much about the renters". I do want to point out that reviews are very subjective, both good and bad. In regards to the guests comments about the beds. We have never had any comments about the beds, and from trying them ourselves considered them comfortable. But we want to ensure that our guests are comfortable so we bought a mattress topper for the queen bed. Here is an example of the subjectivity: I wrote the next guest: "We bought a mattress topper for the bed in the master bedroom as some guests thought the bed was too hard. I could install it during your stay if you feel the same way. Please let me know," Here is their response: "Thanks, but we have no problems with the mattress and think it is great." For future guests: the mattress topper is in place, but if you find the bed too soft, feel free to remove it during your stay. Regarding the noise: It is true that there is a large project going on to renovate the international marketplace, and these guests may have experienced one of the noisier periods. It is slated to be completed by mid 2016. Once that is done noise levels should return to what is normal for the Waikiki area. We have scheduled to repair the peeling paint in the second bathroom. For any future guests: please weigh this review against all the others that have been posted, and feel free to ask me questions if you have any concerns.

Comfortable, clean, convenient

  • 4 of 5

Everything we wanted for a short stay in Waikiki. The unit has a great view, it is centrally located, and it was well maintained (apart from the curtain in the main bedroom that will not close properly). Check-in was easy and the unit had everything we needed.

Excellent location and plenty of space

  • 4 of 5

The location was ideal and the condo easily accommodated family of 5. Had a view of both Diamond Head and the beach. The included free parking was a real bonus, as have learned from prior visits to Waikiki that parking is usually a significant hidden expense. The condo could use some updating, but for the location, and price, well worth it. Would definatley stay again.

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 8 and stayed in this condo for 7 days. The location was perfect. Easy walk to the Waikiki beach and shopping center and night life. There are a lot of things right at the corners: Starbuck, Japanese noodle restaurant, International market, shops. All the tours picked us up at the lobby which is great. I love that Kuhio is a 2-way street, and there is a loading zone in front of the hotel. The condo has 2 huge long balconies with phenomenal view. We can see Waikiki water, all the buildings, diamond head in our face, the cannel, and the water from the other side (Windward, I guess). I wish we had more time to enjoy the view.

Gavin is wonderful in making things run really smooth. I haven't seen him in person, but I felt comfort that he is around to help if we need. I'll definitely recommend him and his properties to my friends. Thank you. My family is still in withdrawing mode from Hawaii.

Located in the heart of Waikiki. World class dining, and shopping only steps away, and of course the world famous Waikiki beach is less than 2 blocks from this unit.
